    What Got/Keeps You Involved in Caylee's Case?

    Inspired by a post strawberry made:

    Lots of back and forth on all these threads about the facts of the case, which is part of what makes this such a great site. But I am interested to hear what got folks involved in Caylee's case in the first place. There are so many intelligent, insightful WSers from Florida to Alaska who have clearly given a great deal of time to considering what happened here--let's talk a little about what brought us here, without trying to solve anything.

    For me, I was following a case from my home state on the MSM news. Googled for more info and WS came up. I had run across it before accidentally but never really explored (honestly it intimidated the heck outta me for a long time!). As I began lurking and tracking the efforts of folks on my home state case I became aware of how skilled and how generous WSers are. Caylee's case was featured on the front page--I'd never heard about the Anthonys before that--and I started by scanning the posts on her forum after visiting the other. After many months of lurking I decided to dive in, as it were. I've never regretted it.

    What keeps me here is the dedication and passion that posters show for bringing justice to Caylee. I have said this before and I really mean it--there is SO MUCH energy here supporting finding out what really happened to Caylee that her family was not able or willing to provide. I've read so many posts where folks share personal details that shed light on what has gone on in this case, and I honor the sleuthers who have shared their experiences so that we all have a broader understanding. I've come to admire the skills, humor, insights, and challenges that posters have brought to the table in this admittedly tangled case. And perhaps most of all... I want to know what happened to Caylee. It infuriates me to have so many questions still up in the air--even after the 31 days and the "it smells like there's been a dead body in the d*** trunk!"

    Super non-factual thread and mods I know this may end up in the parking lot. Still, very interested to hear other WS'ers "how I got here" stories. Much respect to all who have done so much work on this case and others.

    I know that you think you understand what you thought you heard me say, but, I'm not sure that you realize that what you heard me say is not really what I meant to convey.

    when i first heard about this case i was spitting nails, and this was a good 5 months before they found caylee. i thought '31 days?????????' i was pretty sure caylee was dead and her 'mom' had killed her. and i just....well i pretty much just read here cause it is too tough to post. i remember following the indingcy hearing and you guys were posting pics of casey smirking and having a grand old time, and i just wanted to reach thru the computer and throttle her.......she is such an inhuman monster, and her entire family is a freak show.

    but out of evil that little angel came......which is why i keep saying i think caylee was switched at birth. i refuse to belive she is related to any of them.


    so id say, the bizarre lies and 31 days got me here, and caylee and caylee alone keeps me here. i hate 3 ring circuses. and this is shaping up to be o.j. part 2 with all these hot shot lawyers defending this 'innocent' thing sitting at the defense table.

    i stay for caylee. otherwise i'd be long gone......

    I got pulled into the story because I live in Orlando and had a very similar living situation as KC (like I explained in the other thread, I'm 24..have a 3 year old daughter..live at home with my folks) and hated her almost immediately because being in pretty much the same position (except when I said I worked and went to school, it wasn't a lie) I could see absolutely no excuse for what she'd done, for her nonchalant partying afterwards, and was just in utter disbelief that anyone could do such a thing and show no remorse or concern with regards to the child they created. I've learned a lot from following this case.

    Justice for Caylee is why I stay. I got drawn in with the incredible story in the begining finding out that a mom went 31 days without reporting her child missing. I have to admit in the begining I thought Casey was innocent, I had been reading alot about the Mexican kidnapping rings and thought Casey was doing what the kidnappers told her. Especially when she said that she didn't want to talk to LE, FBI only and that her family was endanger. Of course I quickly changed that when I saw how blatantly obvious it was Casey was responsible, and then I was stuck trying to figure out why???

    At it's core, the defense counsel's motion accuses the undersigned of being a "self aggrandizing media hound". Indeed. The irony is rich.

    Motion granted.

    I joined here because of Caylee. I hardly post but I read daily.

    31 days sucked me in.

    Why do I stay? Well, someone has to be here for her. We have this whole forum of wonderful people, who are total strangers, praying for justice for this precious little girl and yet her family, the ones she relied on, have turned their back on her for her murderer! If they're not going to hold her hand during this, we will. That's why I stay and I'm sure that's why everyone else stays.

    Nore, I love your avatar and always appreciate your posts, and am utterly in line with your "wants" as stated above... but I am curious to know what drew you to this case originally? (If you are comfortable sharing!)

    I hated it when I went to visit my parents and they always had the news on, day in and day out, occasionally interrupted by the weather channel. Well, time has trudged on and now I find that my husband and I have that same monotone of news in the background as well. (No weather channel yet, thank God.) That is why I was alerted, at the very onset, that we had another missing child here in Florida. I must have caught one of Cindy's first "cameos." Seeing the beautiful pictures of innocent Caylee won my heart over completely but I was simultaneously stunned by Cindy's bullish attitude and aggressiveness. I know and understand there is absolutely no such thing as a "normal" child abduction but I have to tell you that I knew this one was much more complex and stinky than any I had ever heard of on the news before. Cindy was already laying down the rules: we must not question Casey's whereabouts, mothering skills, truthfulness or alibis. We must only focus on finding Caylee. But no pleases, thank yous, tears or helpful background information. Age, sex, weight, height. I love her so we must find her.

    Did not sit right with me so I searched online to try to get more details. And so here I still sit, with Caylee finally found and many more details that reinforce my initial impression that not only had Caylee been harmed but, worse yet, harmed by her entire family.

    Drawn in, I guess, because I felt an innocent had been betrayed by the people she had trusted the most. The people who abandoned her before and even after her death. It was my distinct first impression that she needed more help (by strangers and the public) than what was being offered up by her own family. I think that's why so many volunteered to search with TES for her.

    She needed us, right from the beginning.

    That's what grabbed my attention too! When I heard the news that a small child was missing in Florida and her mother didn't report her disappearance for 31 days, I said, "Whoa", and started following this case. It immediately became the most bizarre case with the craziness of the child's mother and grandparents.
    My posts are my opinion..........
