George Anthony told the court he suspected Casey was GUILTY when he discovered the smell of ‘human decomposition’ in her car, after Caylee had gone missing.
In an emotional testimony, he also clashed with the defense when they pushed him on Casey‘s claims he sexually molested her and cried as he recounted the discovery of his granddaughter’s remains and how he later tried to kill himself so he could “be with Caylee.”
“The car smelled like human decomposition. Caylee was last seen with Casey,” George Anthony told the jury. “One and one adds up to two in my mind. I was trying to put all the stories together. ”
Casey responded to her dad’s testimony by shaking her head vigorously.
Her defense attorney Jose Baez immediately went on the attack, asking George if he ever sexually molested Casey. When he replied, “Sir, I never would do anything to harm my daughter in that way,” Baez asked, “Only in that way?”
The prosecution objected and George lashed out at Jose Baez, saying, “You are argumentative, sir. I’m trying to be calm. I have been nice to you.”
And he openly sobbed when he described how he felt when Caylee’s body was found in December 2008, six months after she went missing.
When asked about his 2009 suicide attempt, George told the court, “It just seemed like the right time to go, to be with Caylee. To spend time with Caylee. I didn’t want to be in this world anymore.”
George’s sobs prompted tears among those in the gallery, but Casey showed no emotion throughout her father’s testimony.
Does that seem weird? And do you think George’s words will damage the defense’s case? Weigh in!
