Caylee Anthony's Sixth Birthday To Be Celebrated With Public Memorial Tonight

Caylee Anthony would have turned six years old today.

And at a public memorial planned for 6 p.m. tonight in Orlando, near the woods where the tot’s remains were found in December 2008, the organization Bring Kids Home will reveal its plans for a permanent memorial at the site.

For this evening’s event, Bring Kids Home has asked members of the public to bring latex helium balloons to be released. The event will also include a butterfly release.

But don’t expect Caylee‘s mom Casey—who was acquitted a few weeks ago of murdering her daughter—of attending the memorial, considering she’s been in seclusion since the jury’s verdict, and the residents of Orlando aren’t keen on her ever returning. As for Caylee’s grandparents, George and Casey Anthony, they’re also keeping a low profile and are not expected to attend.

Bring Kids Home hopes to build a memorial, to be designed by artist named Jefre. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the group  “would need to take their plans before county staff and request a special exception to the zoning of the property. If approved, they would also have to go through the permitting process.”
