The 31 days, the lies, the stealing, the partying, the behavior of the other A's. I think most of all the A's complete disregard for Caylee and their shameless pursuit of fame and fortune.

This little angel's big, beautiful, haunting eyes first drew me in. Then KC's total disregard and lack of emotion for the loss of this precious gift she was given appalled me and kept me glued. Then all the lies angered me and made me want to figure it all out because I just could not understand. I think the feeling that this baby needs a hero and desperately needs people to love and remember she's out there draws alot of emotion. We all just want her to be found. I am praying that happens this week-end.I think about you constantly, whether it's with my mind or my heart. ~Albany Bach Reid

Like previous posters have stated, it is the fact that she wasn't even reported "missing" for 31 days; the fact that her family has acted so strangely and has done everything they can for Casey, not Caylee; the very weird twists and turns in the case (from a cowboy-hat-wearing bounty hunter to a story about a script - strange); and most importantly, Caylee has touched all of our hearts. None of us can understand how anyone, especially her mother, could ever do anything to hurt her. She is the Angel of Children.

Well, for me, it confounds the heck out of me because I love my own son with ever fiber of my being. He fills my very soul, and the thought of him going missing terrifies me, he has the flu today and that even has me upset.
The fact that someone could give birth to another being and not feel the same is what has compelled me to this case.
Caylee never stood a chance....KC should have been allowed the option to give her to another family. BUt she was an adult when she gave birth, and the decision was ultimately her own, no matter what Cindy ordained.
I'm getting into babble mode, so that is my cue to exit.

We have a ton of these threads so this will probably get merged. Just a reminder when starting new threads to make sure it isn't already covered another another title.
The reason thousands are showing up and why we are here is to END THIS!!!
Once Caylee is found, the A fam circus is over. The lies will stop. Casey will be convicted. And most importantly, Caylee Marie will be buried with the dignity and the grace she deserves. What she did not receive in life, she will be given in death. Respect, a voice, and a peaceful soul. She will be protected from further injustice and harm."WE SEEK FOR THE TRUTH. WE SEEK JUSTICE.

AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"

Couldn't have said it better myself. I for one am wrapped up in this case because I am a mother myself and can't fathom how a mother could do this to her own child. I realize other mother's have done this to their children. KC is such a cold person and what she did to her own flesh and blood, my mind and heart will never understand.

I agree with SS and want to add that Caylee is a tiny, innocent child who couldn't look after herself and expected her family to protect her. They didn't, and she's dead.

I for one am obsessed with this because you couldnt make this stuff up! Just when you think youve figured it out it changes. KC is just evil. The lies are so complicated and at the end is just this beautiful, innocent girl who didnt deserve any of this! At least if we can crack this case she will get justice. If not it was all "a huge waste"

These popular cases are comparable to best selling books. Thousands of books are published yearly yet only a few become mainstream popular. These popular books generally have a multifaceted plot which ups the ante for popularity.
This case is absolutely multifaceted. As were the cases of Madeleine Mc, Natalie H, Trenton D and Jonbenet R. etc.- The missing child initiates interest but to excite and maintain this type of "popularity" other aspects have to be present.
Giovanni Gonzalez, 5 years old, on visitation with his father, disappeared. His father said he didn't have him, he was arrested and bond set at $500,000. Father's not saying where the boy is. Giovanni disappeared one month after Caylee and also remains missing. There is a thread for him in Missing/Located. Now I've lurked here long enough to know there's a LOT of caring people registered here so lack of popularity doesn't equate to lack of care for the child. Giovanni's case just doesn't have the components to merit media attention. The media not only determines popularity- it provides resources that make for a workable case. Heck, the arrest warrant couldn't even be located for Giovanni's father.
Ironically, in Caylee's case, the components that lead up to her disappearance are the same components that ignited the determined resolve to find her. It's gone past popular....it's now personal.
Popular or unpopular, I think we all will agree that ALL the missing need to be brought home.

The story's Caylee's mother told. The cockiness to lie to the LE and keep lying. Leading them to her work place, etc.
The incredible Grand Mother. Wow! The things she has said, wants folks to believe. Expect folks to follow her lead, no matter what.
Finding Caylee at this point, will go a long way to make sure her Mother gets what's coming to her.Just my opinion.....
Finally found a reason for the Ignore feature!

ANd...we just want peace and justice for this little girl.My Mom told me (and showed me) that "Parent is a verb, not a noun" ~ thanks Mom

Seriously, what is it about Casey that people are willing to go to the mat for her?
What is it about her that is causing all this craziness. The police have solved the case. She did it. There are, horribly, many murders commited everyday that are as heinous, but do not receive the coverage that this case has. I'm talking about Casey not Caylee, the victim.
Why this murder?
What is it about Casey that is so compelling?

This is the most BIZZARE case I have ever followed......it gets worse every day.Kyron, HALEIGH, ADJI & Gabriel NEEDS PRAYERS NOW TO FIND THEM!. Zahra & Jonathan in heaven
Justice for Hailey!!!!
No Justice for Caylee Marie..........

Media coverage. Period.
Parents kill their children every day. The media reports it for a few days, someone is arrested (or not) and the whole thing quietly fades away. There is simply nothing to talk about anymore.
In this case, the grandparents chased and courted the media and gave people a lot to talk about. Florida's Sunshine Laws allowing the release of thousands of pages of documents gave the media and the public a lot to talk about. Attracted by the media coverage, a whole host of bizarre characters showed up to make names for themselves which gave the media and people even more to talk about. Without all that information in everyone's face day after day this case would have faded into the woodwork months ago. The public would have lost interest, followed shortly by the bloodsuckers.
There is nothing particularly unique about a mother killing her child. There is nothing remotely unique about Casey Anthony either. She's just a common criminal. Heck, people are not even talking about her (or Caylee) most of the time anymore. They talk about Baez, bounty hunters, shady kid finder orgs, shady PR reps, bizarre grandparents, smuggled bracelets, suicide attempts and macabre dolls. It's a reality soap opera and that's why it's talked about.

Bumping this thread.
My reason: I can only focus on this one case--because it is so convoluted. Since it is so complex, it may go on for months. Weird, but yesterday, I "received,"(I know should be on psychic thread) that this case will not be resolved until September 2009.

This is by far the best explanation for the why this case is so popular. I agree that there is nothing unique about KC, or any mother that kills their child.
I'm trying to follow another trial at this time, (Riley Ann Sawyers) and hope to see a verdict soon in that case.
It has been the agressive media in Orlando that has fueled the interest in this case. Other media outlets picked it up and ran with it because it's about numbers and profit.
Sadly, Caylee is but one of the several hundred children that were killed by their Mother last year."Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." ~ Henry James

Caylee's big beautiful brown eyes are what captured my attention.The media played the biggest part though.They brought this case front and center.No question about that.
02-02-2009, 06:25 PM #144
I was just laying in bed last night thinking about why I am into this case. For me it is the ridiculous behavior of the A's and KC, and the constant twists and turns. Having it in Orlando where I lived for quite some time is another interest for me.
I know this is going to sound awful, but without the A's/KC, Caylee is just another missing child. Sure, she is cute and sweet, but so are 1000's of other missing children!!! Plenty of other moms have done horrible things (Baby Grace comes to mind) and they don't get the press. It's all the DRAMA and the seeming lack of attention to the victim from her family that keeps it up front. Add JB and his "dream team", the meter reader, etc. and it is just an unbelievable story.

for me it was the instant access to everyone's personal lives. what can i say? it's certainly voyueristic, but also extremely interesting to get such a peek into others' lives.
I remember the day the story broke. I was just starting my work day, looking at a huge pile of paperwork on my desk... and aimlessly browsing the internet for any excuse not to get started on it. I remember reading the initial story on CNN, way back on July 17th, when the details were still so foggy. At my first skim on the story, it seemed to me like some sort of weird misunderstanding / custody issue. Grandma thought mom had the baby. Mom thought nanny had the baby. Maybe dad has the baby? These were my initial thoughts, and I honestly thought it would be some misunderstanding (still a pretty horrible thing to "lose" a baby, but I didn't think it would be anything like this...) that would get sorted out in a few hours. Ready to move on to the next story...
But then I noticed the original article had a link to Casey's myspace page! I love myspace! I already did my fair share of lurking there, but here was a new reason to dig around (and it was long before anyone involved was smart enough to turn their page to private). I read Casey's comments. ALL of them. I read Lee's page. I read half of KC's friends pages. I saw the comments about Caylee's first birthday. The 'congratulations' comments when Casey and Jesse got engaged. The 'hope you're ok' comment when Jesus was killed in a car accident. I saw the same flirting with a soldier in Afghanistan that Rev Grund allegedly noticed (and seriously, how could anyone not - it was so obvious). I read that soldier's whole page too, including Casey's comments while she desparately tried to hang on while he pushed her away. Needless to say, I didn't get much work done on July 17th.
I have always been interested in murder cases; I read a lot of true crime, follow stories in the media, etc. I've always, though, been left wanting more. You may get a few pictures, some interviews, or whatnot, but I'm usually left wondering, what are they really like? Before this person was notorious, who were they? For me, this was the first case where I felt I had a true picture into what the suspect's life was actually like, rather than the image they choose to present once the media, the public, and lawyers are involved.

I too agree that the Grandparents have kept this story in the headlines. I can't remember another case where we have seen such shocking and inappropriate behavior. KC's horrible judgment and behavior is nothing we haven't seen before, but usually the parents of the accused stay somewhat silent waiting on court processes to play out. Usually the parents of the accused are ashamed and want no part of the media. It is sad because Caylee should have been what kept this case going.

the grim reality is this: casey is white and cute. caylee is white and cuter.
