Casey Anthony’s father seen outside his home in Florida as she claims that HE murdered her daughter

In newly obtained photographs, George Anthony looks somber as he is captured during housework in his garage on the day news broke his daughter, Casey, is accusing him of killing his granddaughter and sexually abusing them both.

Wearing a pair of athletic grey shorts, a navy blue t-shirt and croc-like house shoes, George looked glum as he handled power tools and inspected the light fixtures in his yard.

Despite holiday décor adorning his one-story home in Orlando that he shares with wife Cindy, the couple’s spirit has likely been dampened by the spotlight that is again being shone on accusations leveled against them by their daughter.

Casey Anthony was infamously acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee after a highly publicized trial during which she was dubbed the most hated woman in America. She has always denied killing Caylee, despite cadaver dogs picking up the traces of human remains in her vehicle. Caylee’s skeletal remains were discovered near the family property in Orlando, Florida

Now, Casey is renewing previous accusations that George, 71, abused her as a child and ‘moved on’ to her late daughter Caylee before killing her and making it look like an accident in the pool.

She’s always maintained that only her father knows how Caylee died.

She suggests that her father, George, had sexually abused her, claiming he did the same to her when she was a child. 

‘It’s still something I can’t piece together but I wasn’t the only one home. I’m not outright accusing him of murder but it wasn’t an accident in the pool,’ she said, refuting the theory her attorneys put forward at the trial.

In her first sit-down interview, Casey appears in a three-part docuseries on Peacock, where she claims that both she and her daughter were sexually abused by her father George. She has claimed in the past that she was abused by her father and her brother – claims they vehemently denied. Neither of them has ever been charged in connection with the allegations, nor have they been implicated in Caylee’s death.  

Casey Anthony says she ‘likes her life’ in Florida, where she started over in 2011 after her shock acquittal with money from her defense team. 

Casey claims in the new series, which airs on November 29, that she woke up from a nap to find Caylee, who’d been with her, gone.

Now, in her first sit-down interview, Casey appears in a three-part docuseries on Peacock, where she claims that both she and her daughter were sexually abused by her father George

After the trial ended, she said she received ‘no help or assistance’ from her family but that her team of lawyers gave her ‘a little money’ to move on with. 

‘I have fought so hard for a normal life. My defense team was very adamant about making sure I was able to have a fresh start after the trial I didn’t receive any help or assistance from my biological family. I was given a little bit of money from my defense team to start to get on my feet. They are my surrogate family. She reveals that she started over in 2011 with money given to her by her defense team.

‘I’ve worked a lot of cases over the years. The whole reason I’m doing what I’m doing now, to pay forward what was done for me. I’ve spent the last 10.5 half years doing primarily criminal defense work because

‘I don’t ever want to see anyone be pigeonholed by not only by law enforcement but the media, be railroaded like I was.

‘I like my life. At least there are moments where I feel like I’m not alone. Where those holes in my heart that will never go away feel a little bit smaller,’ she says. 

She still works for Pat McKenna, the lead investigator on her case, in south Florida. Casey admits lying to police repeatedly in 2008. She last saw Caylee on June 16, 2008. 

She claims that she was woken up from a nap by her father, who was ‘shaking’ her and asking her where the toddler was. 

‘I wasn’t feeling that great, and I wanted to lay down. I had her lay in bed with me. I was awoken by [my father] shaking me and asking me where Caylee was. That didn’t make sense. She would never even leave my room without telling me. 

‘I immediately started looking around the house. I go outside and I’m looking to see where she could be. He was standing there with her. She was soaking wet. He handed her to me.

‘Said it was my fault. That I caused it. But he didn’t rush to call 911 and he wasn’t trying to resuscitate her. I collapsed with her in my arms. She was heavy, and she was cold.

‘He takes her from me and he immediately softens his tone and says “It’s going to be ok.’ I wanted to believe him. He took her from me and he went away.’ 

Casey says in the documentary that she decided to finally give the interview because she wants to ‘honor’ her daughter.

‘I just need someone to be willing to listen. I’ve spent the last 10 years making sure that I knew who I was. That I started to cope with this loss. And that I had something to say to make my daughter proud but also to honor her properly and this is part of that.

 When I was eight-years-old my father started to come into my room at night…the abuse one day just stopped, right before my 12th birthday

‘It’s hard because 1,000 questions go through my head. I’m responsible for answering everyone in the world’s questions about her about what happened. I still don’t know what happened to Caylee. 

‘I know what I’m afraid of. I know it eats at me at night, day after day,  because I know what I lived through,’ she says at beginning of the first episode, which DailyMail.com previewed this week. 

She claims that her father, a former cop, raped her in her bedroom at night consistently for four years between the ages of eight and 12. 

‘When I was eight-years-old my father started to come into my room at night. I was physically hurt…scared because I can’t tell mommy what happened, she’ll get mad at me – that’s what I was told.  With my father, the abuse one day just stopped, right before my 12th birthday. 

‘Then my brother started coming in shortly after I turned 12 and it stopped around the time I was 15. It wasn’t the same thing that happened with my father, my brother never raped me, but it was close enough where there was a pattern,’ she says. 

Her allegations have never been proven.

It took 31 days for Casey to call police and tell them Caylee was missing. On July 15, 2008, Casey’s mother Cindy first alerted the authorities to Caylee’s disappearance. 

The couple hadn’t seen Casey or Caylee for a month. They then found Casey’s car in a tow-yard, and George said the smell ‘took his breath away’. In her 911 call, Cindy told the dispatcher: ‘Caylee’s missing. It smells like there’s been a dead body in the damn car.’ 

Casey then told police that she’d left her daughter with a babysitter, Zenaida Gonzales Fernandez, and that she was also missing. 

Now, she claims in her Peacock documentary that the last time she saw her daughter was in her father’s arms on June 16, after she woke up from a nap.

‘During the 31 days, I genuinely believed that Caylee was still alive. 

‘My father kept telling me she was ok. I had to keep following his instructions. He told me what to do. I tried to act as normal as I could.’ 

She said she went to live with her boyfriend, then returned in July to find her daughter gone. 

‘I lied. But nobody asked me why,’ she says in the trailer for the Peacock docuseries. 

She then goes on to repeat old and unfounded claims that her father sexually abused her as a child.

‘He’d put a pillow over my face and smother me to knock me out. That happened several times. I’m sure there were times where I was incapacitated as a child where my body was limp and lifeless.’

She says now that she believes her father went on to abuse Caylee after her. 

‘That’s what I think about. I wish every day I had said something to someone about something. Maybe then things would be different.’ 

George has in the past hit out at Casey’s lies, telling a previous documentary that her claims Caylee drowned were not true. 

He was forced to provide a DNA sample during the trial to disprove his daughter’s lawyer’s obscene suggestion that he had incestuously fathered Caylee. 

George also claimed Casey might have drugged her daughter, saying Caylee often slept for up to 13 hours at a time. 

The prosecution told a story of a young mother who regretted having kids and wanted a way out.  They seized on the fact that Casey was photographed in bars and partying after the last time she saw her daughter alive. 

They argued that Casey suffocated her daughter with duct tape. 

While Casey was convicted of lying to police, the jury acquitted her of murder in a shock verdict in 2011. 

She then went to live with Patrick McKenna, the lead investigator from her case. It is unclear where she now lives.
