    My thoughts on guilt after visiting Caylee's memorial site.

    Yesterday I drove up to Orlando for Father's Day and stopped by Caylee's memorial and remains site so that my 7 year old son could leave a teddy bear for Caylee, while I was there I took a few pictures and I wanted to share them with my fellow WS's.

    I also wanted to share some of my thoughts and feelings after having visited the site where little Caylee's remain were found, my initial reaction was "wow this is really close to the Anthony home" and even though I have heard this explained on the news several times it just did not sink in until I saw it for myself, this was a surreal experience for me to be standing under the canopy of trees in eerie silence surrounded by thick vegetation, trash and stuffed animals left for Caylee, I could not control my emotions and burst into tears, but not because I was sad at where I standing but rather I was enraged that ICA had dumped Caylee's remains so unceremoniously in this dark dank place littered with trash and crawling with bugs and wildlife. I just have no words to express how callous ICA's action were, GA would never left Caylee out like roadkill here.
    For those of you on the fence as to whether this was an accidental death or not, let me just say that no innocent person would dump the body of their own flesh and blood in a nasty overgrown dump site unless they were the person responsible for the death and just wanted to get rid of the evidence quickly and without thought.
    The site was littered with black garbage bags full god knows what, beer bottles, carpet remnants, used floor tiles etc... so it's plausible to understand at least to me how none one would have thought twice about picking up or opening garbage bags in this area off Suburban Drive, for this reason I think that RK must have been actively picking through a lot of trash looking for Caylee, when he found her remains that fateful day 12-11-08, this also makes the DT theory that RK moved Caylee's remains all the more ridiculous since this is not a place that a person could easily walk around in and scatter around for 1/4 acre little pieces of bones.


    In the pictures you will see how the area slopes down from the road to the remains site, this area seems to have very poor drainage and would be flooded easily with some rain and when I was out there the ground was slightly damp underfoot even though we have drought conditions in Florida right now.
    I took some pictures from the edge of the road to illustrate how far down it is and it's proximity to the street.
    I did not take any pictures of the garbage bags lying around because it was to upsetting to me given how Caylee was found.

    The area where the remains were found on Suburban ends at a dead end, on one side is the school and across is the remains site.

    I also drove by the Anthony's home and wondered what really happened here?

    The home is situated in a small middle class subdivision, the homes are well kept and this is not the type of background that you would expect to see a thief and killer coming from, this is quiet neighborhood filled with hardworking families.

    I'm new here so hopefully I posted this in accordance with the sites rules, if not please correct it and thanks for letting me post my thoughts here.

    Your pictures give a person a very good look at how dense the brush is and how easy it was for ICA to toss Caylee in there undetected.

    If I were on that jury I would want to take a field trip to the site to see for myself.

    Thank you very much for going there and for sharing your pictures with us.

    Thank you very much for sharing.

    The juxtaposition of the nice memorial surrounded by trash is jarring, yet uplifting.

    Thank you so much Dragonfly for sharing your pictures with all of us. They turned out so well. It gave me a better understanding, of what I had always pictured it to look like. Thanks again. It was very sweet of you and your son to pay your respects and bring a bear too. I wish that I wasn't clear across the country, so that I could do the same. Hopefully, someday soon.

    I don't know if it possible but I think it would be helpful for the jury to visit the site and see it for themselves, I think that it would make the deliberations easier imo, since it would help them sort through the dueling sides theories and put everything else into perspective.

    Thanks for your pictures. It is a very erie place. At the time she was placed there it was even more over grown than it is now, so much was cleared out at that time, and as you have seen it hasn't taken too long to have so much grow back.

    Like you have said until you go there and see for yourself how close it really is to the A's house you can't wrap your head around it. I don't think for one minute GA would have tossed Caylee there and let her rot and be picked apart and dragged away by animals.

    I may be going to Orlando on the 27th, next Monday, and have planned to go there again.

    Thanks again for your pictures and your thoughts.

    The jurors should be brought out to the site where Caylee was finally found - right down the street from the Anthony house. They should be able to see for themselves how the land dips down and flooding occurred. The jurors would see this dump site where a beautiful little girl was not even buried.

    ICA had that photobucket pic of a site that looked similar with the word Love over it to romanticize the spot which was actually a place people dump trash and garbage.

    Remember all that stuff about everyday it gets stronger. I can feel she's close. Wow, ICA must be psychic!

    Thank you so much for sharing. It is nice that so many have left tokens for sweet Caylee. It must have been hard to go there.

    Thank you so very, very much for posting these current photos. Also, your thoughts, feelings and words made me cry. You have been a blessing to me today. I live in PA and can't afford to come and visit Caylee's remains site. Thank you again for posting!!!
    I love Websleuths! Justice for Caylee!

    Wow, thank you for this first person view Dragonlady!

    This case never ceases to amaze me, what a sad ending to a beautiful life. There is no doubt in my mind that Casey is solely responsible for the murder of Caylee. I still can not wrap my brain around her callousness.
