Inmate: Chloroform Was Used To Put Caylee To Sleep

April 7th, 2010 by

ORLANDO, Fla. – Nearly 800 pages of new documents were released Tuesday, including letters that Casey Anthony wrote to another jail inmate (read them). Investigators told WFTV they contain damaging evidence against her, but Casey’s defense team told WFTV they are not afraid of what’s in them.
“The letters released today reflect the natural desire for companionship when isolated for 23 hours a day, and clearly demonstrate Casey’s unconditional love for her daughter Caylee,” Liz Brown, on behalf of Casey’s defense team, wrote in a release sent out Tuesday night. “Despite these intentions, it is obvious in the letters authored by Robyn Adams that her sole purpose and only goal in corresponding with Casey Anthony was to create “leverage to get out of prison early.”
Tuesday’s newly-released documents give the most revealing look into Casey Anthony’s life behind bars that the public has seen since she was first arrested nearly two years ago. Casey Anthony rambled in her letters and contradicts herself from sentence to sentence at times. All in all, she communicated less about Caylee and much more about her plans for her new life once she gets out of jail.
Inmate Robyn Adams, who interacted with Casey verbally in jail and through dozens of letters, told investigators Casey told her that Caylee had trouble sleeping and she had to use chloroform to put her to sleep. Also, Casey implied to Robyn Adams that her mother, Cindy Anthony, brought chloroform home from the clinic where she worked.
She also wrote to inmate Robyn Adams, “I know that Caylee’s nanny, the real Zenaida, the girl who was my friend for four years, I know in my heart that she’s not responsible. And I don’t blame her for not showing her face.” Casey also said she “was going to take Caylee and move away. Unfortunately, my plans got beyond tangled when Zanny wouldn’t tell me where she and Cays were.”
Casey claimed in one of her letters that she had given Caylee to the nanny, while she prepared for the two of them to start a new life and wrote, “That’s why I waited to report her missing. Because she was and wasn’t.”
However, Casey confided to Adams that there was no “Zenaida.” Adams believes that may have been written in one of the letters she sent to her friend, Tracey Nealley. Although Casey Anthony and Robyn Adams agreed to flush the letters after reading them, Adams kept them and mailed them to Nealley.
Adams also told investigators that, on the day Caylee was found and after the jail chaplain already told Casey that Caylee’s remains had been found, Casey told Adams that Caylee was found in a baby blanket in a black trash bag. However, the chaplain didn’t know that at the time.
Casey also accused her brother Lee Anthony of sexually abusing her for three years, starting when she was 12 years old. She wrote to Adams that he stopped after she threatened to kill him if he came back into her room. Casey also claimed that she was molested by her father George when she was younger, but did not elaborate further. She said her mother accused her of lying and called her a whore.
In an interview with Orange County detective Yuri Melich, an inmate named Maya Derkovic, who was in prison at the same time as Casey Anthony, told him the two established a friendship and repeatedly spoke through the ventilation system. During the conversations, Derkovic asked Casey about the circumstances of Caylee’s disappearance. Derkovic said Casey told her three different versions of what happened to Caylee.
The first version, detective Melich states, was the same one Casey told him. The second version was that the babysitter was asked to come to Casey’s house to watch Caylee while Casey went out. When Casey returned, both the babysitter and Caylee were gone. Another version was about the same, except when Casey returned to the empty home she found a note claiming Caylee had been abducted.
Derkovic told Melich during the interview that, when Casey would return to her cell from visits with her family, she would make derogatory remarks about her mother Cindy.
“Her parents would come and that’s when she would make comments about her mom. And I asked her, ’Well how was your visit and how did it go?’ And she’ll make comments like, ’Well it’s alright; at least the b**** knows how I feel now,’” Derkovic told Melich. “She’ll talk about, well, how her mom never really cared about her that much. All she cared about was Caylee and she knows what it fells like to miss somebody and to feel pain and stuff like that.”

Casey Anthony’s jail house friends also said Casey thought she was famous. In the letters, Casey wrote that she had to get pretty before she went to court and she laughed when her case got national attention. But she isn’t a fan of WFTV or reporter Kathi Belich.

“I’ve really started to dispise (sic) Channel 9, and Kathi Belich. No integrity. They don’t check facts anymore which is just plain wrong, and very sad,” Casey wrote in one of her letters.
Casey also talked about her fan mail. In one letter, she wrote that she got thousands of letters and cards from people across the country supporting her. She also wrote that at least two men had become obsessed with her and one even proposed to her on several occasions.
“There are a couple of fellas who have either become infatuated with celebrity or with the fair damsel in distress,” Casey wrote. “He sends cards and letters proposing marriage, every card and every letter. I’m his princess. He wants to marry me now and he’ll take care of me, yadda, yadda.”
In another letter, Casey wrote about how she is angry because she isn’t going to look good in court.
“I’ll be leaving for court in couple of hours and I know I’m going to look like hell. I had every intention of going to bed early, waking up early enough to get pretty,” she wrote.
Later the accused child killer compared her situation to being famous.
“Really? Is this what celebrities have to deal with? Yikes!” Casey wrote.
Casey continued to brag about her celebrity status during conversations she had with inmate Maya Derkovic.
“Her seeing herself on the news, hearing people talk about it, it was all fun and games to her. It was funny, it was exciting,” Derkovic told a detective.
The letters also talked about how Casey has gained weight in jail and is dealing with acne. She also claims to have found God behind bars. Her letters often refer to God, how God is with her and is keeping her strong.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect is Casey thinks God communicates with her by making her sneeze to agree or disagree with what’s she’s thinking.
“When I’m thinking something random, I sneeze. At times I’ve taken that as God affirming or denying my thoughts. I’m not a random sneezer,” Casey wrote.
The documents also reveal that she seems to look to attorney Jose Baez as her father, inmate Robyn Adams as her sister and Baez’s assistant as her new crush.

Casey even jokes, calling herself a loser for having a crush on one of her own attorneys. She blames it on what she calls the lack of contact with intelligent, attractive males while behind bars.
However, her so-called father-figure, Jose Baez, consoles her, saying he’s sorry she hasn’t met a man deserving of her, but he guaranteed it would happen someday.
Baez, meanwhile, told WFTV a day before the letters were released that Casey’s team is not concerned about the content of the letters and not releasing them would have been worse, because that would have left questions about their content.
“If you look at them within the context, they’re of a person locked up 23 hours a day,” attorney Jose Baez said after a hearing in the case Monday, before the letters had been released.
Casey has been in the Orange County jail since July 2008. She’s in protective custody and is not supposed to have direct communication with other inmates. A guard, Silvia Hernandez, is now on paid leave from the Orange County jail in connection with the exchange of letters.

Tuesday’s new documents revealed new information about the other woman in George Anthony’s life. WFTV reported a woman named River Cruz, also known as Krystal Holloway, claimed she had an on-going relationship with Casey’s father.
The documents detail Cruz’s interview with FDLE agents (read it). In the interview, she told investigators George knew that mystery baby sitter Zenaida Gonzalez didn’t exist and even confided in her that Caylee’s death was an accident that “snowballed out of control.”
In a lengthy interview with Holloway, there are startling revelations about the Anthony family and Caylee’s murder. Holloway is the woman who claims she spent a lot of time with George after Caylee disappeared. She told investigators George often came to her home, because he believed the Anthony home was bugged. Holloway claims the relationship never became sexual, but she cared a great deal for George.
Holloway said she gave George $4,000 and at one point; George asked her for $20,000, because he was afraid the house was going into foreclosure.
But the most disturbing details came about Casey. Holloway said George confided in her that Caylee’s death was an accident that went wrong, but George never told her what the accident was. He even relayed a story where he yelled at Casey, “I know you killed her! What did you do with her?” Then he allegedly choked Casey and Cindy had to pull him off.
Holloway said Cindy thought George was looking for a job when he was really spending time with her. She claims George said Cindy was a carbon copy of Casey.
“‘She’s cold. She has battery acid running through her veins,’” Holloway said George told her of Cindy.
In the reports, investigators saud a security guard at Holloway’s gated community said George would drive there and visit her regularly.

Prosecutors want the transcript from a hearing last year when a former member of Casey’s defense team made a specific statement in court.
“The body or remains of Caylee Anthony were placed there after Casey Anthony was locked up in the Orange County correctional facility. There is substantial evidence and that proves, your honor, her innocence,” attorney Todd Macaluso said in August.
Macaluso has since left Casey’s team.
State prosecutors filed the motion Monday to get that transcript from the two-hour hearing, but the motion does not say why they want the information.

Here’s what’s next in the case against Casey. Later this month, more discovery documents are expected to be released. In May, the civil case brought against Casey by Zenaida Gonzalez will have a pre-trial hearing.
