Those close to Casey claim she didn’t act worried in the days after Caylee went missing!

Casey’s ex-boyfriend Anthony Lazzaro took the stand on May 25 and revealed the he noticed absolutely no change in his ex’s behavior following June 16, 2008, the day her defense claims Caylee drowned.

Lazzaro’s roommates also testified, saying that Casey seemed like an all-around outgoing, content woman who never discussed her daughter being missing. She never acted unhappy and never asked them for help finding Caylee.

Brian Burner, the family’s next door neighbor, had something else relevant to add — Casey came to his house on June 18, 2008 asking to borrow a shovel to dig up a bamboo root. She had never asked to borrow anything else before.

On Tuesday Casey’s lawyer, Jose Baez, defended her by claiming that there was a horrible explanation to why Caylee was not reported missing for an entire month. Baez argued that Caylee drowned in the family’s swimming pool, but Casey had been too scared to report the child missing because her father, George Anthony, had blamed her for the negligence. He also added that her father molested Casey when she was only 8, a claim that George adamantly denies.

There is overwhelming evidence that Casey murdered her daughter and dumped her remains in the woods a half mile from the home they shared with the little girl’s grandparents, including photos of the 25-year-old partying just days after Caylee’s disappearance, googled words like ‘neck-breaking’ on her computer, and evidence of decomposition in the trunk of Casey’s car.
