Casey Anthony trial update and the latest on her parent’s Florida foreclosure


Not too long ago, it was reported that the parents of murder suspect Casey Anthony had hired a foreclosure attorney.

George and Cindy Anthony were trying to save their four-bedroom Florida home from being repossessed. The couple stopped making their $785.82 mortgage payments in June 2009. At that time, they were behind $7,000 owed to the bank.

Documents show they purchased the home for $90,900 in 1989. In 2005, the Anthony’s refinanced the house, agreeing to pay $121,180 for the new mortgage.

Their foreclosure attorney was able to help them save the home — the Anthony’s qualified for the federal “Making Home Affordable” loan modification program.

It was in this house that they lived with their granddaughter, Caylee Marie Anthony, until the child’s tragic death in 2008.

In 2008, Casey Anthony was accused of murdering her two-year old daughter. Prosecutors said the child died from three pieces of duct tape over her mouth and nose. Casey claims the toddler drowned in the pool. When police started investigating, Casey gave false stories about a nanny, employment and coworkers.

Casey Anthony is being charged with first-degree murder, and has pleaded not guilty. If charged, she could receive the death sentence.

The high-profile trial began this week with Casey accusing her father of a poor childhood. The defense said her father sexually abused her. They also said her brother made similar attempts of abuse. Going through this trauma helped her block out the tragedy of her daughter’s death.

Therefore, she was in an alternative reality. She continued to party and get tattooed, “Good Life” in Italian, despite her daughter’s death.

In day two of the trial. Cameron Campana — the former roommate of Casey’s ex-boyfriend — took the stand. He was the first witness. Campana referred to Casey as “your average 22-year-old-girl.”

The next witness called to the stand was Nathan Lezniewicz, which was another former roommate of her ex-boyfriend. He said Casey seemed like a happy person. He was aware that she had a daughter, and had met the child a handful of times at the apartment.

Stay tuned for more on this situation as it develops.
