- Casey lead authorities on a wild goose chase when asked to show them where she last left Caylee. The first apartment, ended up being a retirement home, the second was an apartment that had been vacant for 6 months.
Cindy's explanation: Her daughter purposely lead them to the incorrect apartment, because she was afraid if she lead them to the correct one, they would barge in and the kidnappers would kill Caylee.
- Casey's car was abandoned and when found it smelled of a dead body. Cindy screams that her daughter's "damn car smells like a dead body".
Cindy's retraction and explanation: Cindy first asks the public to put a pizza in the trunk of their car and leave it there for a few days in the heat and then come back and tell her what it smells like. She has now changed her story and says she only said the car smelled of a dead body in order to get the police there faster.
- Photos of Casey have surfaced. In these photos she is partying at a club and dirty dancing with some girl. These photos were taken about 5 days after she says she discovered the babysitter had stolen her child.
Cindy's reasoning is: Her daughter was conducting her own search and going to the club was in part to find the babysitter who often hung out there and in part to behave as she normally would in order not to raise any red flags that something was wrong so as not to alert the kidnappers or put her family and friends in danger.
- Casey has been unable to give the authorities the truthful story of where Caylee is and who took her.
Cindy's explanation: Her daughter is speaking in clues and riddles and the police have to read between the lines, Casey is afraid for her daughter's life and therefore can't just come out and say where she is.
I will add more shortly.
