Child welfare report finds Casey Anthony WAS responsible for Caylee’s death… but she will NOT face new charges
Dailymail - Casey Anthony has escaped being punished for the death of her daughter, despite a child welfare report finding she failed to protect two-year-old Caylee.
The report by Florida’s child welfare agency published today found that Anthony, who was controversially found not guilty of murdering her daughter last month, had been responsible for her death.
But Anthony will not face additional charges as a result of the report, which found she was ‘neglectful’.
THE REPORT THAT FOUND ANTHONY ‘RESPONSIBLE’
The Florida Department of Children and Families verified three allegations classified as ‘maltreatments’ by Casey Anthony.
They included death, failure to protect and threatened harm.
The report did not verify asphyxiation and physical injury because the Orange-Osceola Medical Examiner’s Office was unable to confirm Caylee’s cause of death.
Investigators said that Anthony’s actions were ‘neglectful’.
She failed to ‘report her child missing in a timely manner’ and left her in the care of ‘a baby-sitter for which she was unable to provide accurate information’.
‘It is the conclusion of the Department of Children and Families that [Casey Anthony] failed to protect her child from harm either through her actions or lack of actions, which tragically resulted in the child’s untimely death,’ a DCF spokesman said.
The Department of Children and Families noted that Anthony failed to protect Caylee by not reporting her disappearance in 2008 for more than a month and that failure interfered with the law enforcement investigation and efforts to find the child.
The agency also concluded that Caylee died as a result of abuse or neglect, but the report said the agency was unable to substantiate that the toddler had died from asphyxiation.
‘The inactions by the mother were clearly failure to protect. As the child was found dead, obviously the failure to protect led to the death,’ DCF spokesman Joe Follick said.
The investigation’s conclusions were submitted to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, but it was not a criminal investigation and will not result in any charges against Casey Anthony a
A jury last month acquitted Anthony in Caylee’s death. She was released from jail and has been kept out of the limelight.
A judge last week ordered her to return to Florida to serve probation on unrelated check fraud charges, but her lawyers appealed and another judge is expected to rule this week whether Anthony must follow that order.
The child welfare agency’s investigation was independent of the criminal investigation and the agency made no determination of who killed Caylee.
The department started its first investigation after it received allegations of ‘abuse at the hand of [Casey Anthony]‘ in August 2008.
A second investigation was started on December 29 2008 after Caylee’s remains were found in swamp land close to the house Anthony shared with her parents.
The report said that Anthony was cool and confident when DCF officials met her at the Orange County Jail on September 4 2008.
She told authorities they would not ‘break her’ or make her confess to a crime she did not commit.
The agency investigates every child death when there are allegations of abuse or neglect. The report is also on record in case families come back in the system.
The child protective investigator who interviewed Anthony and her mother, Cindy, after Caylee’s disappearance said Anthony blamed the sheriff’s office for spending ‘more time trying to find me guilty without any evidence than trying to find Caylee,’ according to the report.
When asked why she didn’t report Caylee missing sooner, Anthony told the child investigator she made ‘some bad decisions’, the report states.
In the opening statements of her murder trial, Anthony’s defence team said that Caylee drowned in the swimming pool of her parent’s home in June 2008.
A memorial for the girl, who would have just turned six years old, was held this week near to the spot where her remains were found and was attended by her grandparents George and Cindy Anthony.
In New York City, Bonni Marcus and Jack Zinzi are frantic over losing their doll, Bongo. So frantic, in fact, that they’ve taken to the streets and started plastering ‘Missing’ posters all over town.
On Sunday night they had decided to go to their favorite restaurant on Fifth Avenue and shortly after sitting down, they realized he was gone.
Jack, 58, told The Brooklyn Paper: ‘I walked over to the restaurant, sat down, ordered the food, and reached into my pocket to put Bongo on the table – and saw that he was gone.
‘I tore the car apart. I was in a bad way. Bongo really means a lot to me, so I kind of broke down.
‘It happened so fast, because I couldn’t have been in the restaurant 10 minutes before I realised he was gone.
Celina Cass, just eleven-years-old, went missing nearly a week ago. This morning her body was discovered in a dam, less than a mile from her home. The young girl was from New Hampshire and lived with her mother and step-father, Wendell Noyes.
Divers found Celina Cass’s body Monday morning near a hydroelectric dam that spans the Connecticut River between her hometown of Stewartstown, New Hampshire, and Canaan, Vermont.
While she has been discovered, there hasn’t been an autopsy, but they are planning on proceeding with one on Tuesday, August 2nd, due to the suspicious circumstances. She was last seen on July 25th, when she was playing on her computer. The very next morning is when she was discovered missing.
Shortly after an speaking with reporters, Cass’ step father was hospitalized after making a funny turn on their driveway. After Mr. Noyes was seen rolling around the driveway and causing a scene, he was brought to the hospital. In 2003, he was “involuntarily committed to a mental institution and diagnosed with schizophrenia.”
Wendell Noyes also has complaints from an ex-girlfriend who stated that he threatened to throw her down the stairs and also broke into her home and assaulted her. Seeing as he’s just been taken to the hospital, maybe he was off his medication and did something to Celina Cass. I hope, for the sake of this family, that this is not the case, but seems ironic that the day she’s discovered is the day her schizophrenic step-father is hospitalized.
This poor innocent child who was lost turned to the wrong man for help, Levi Aron. This man was just going about his business when the boy approached and he figured it would be best to take him home, than help him get where he was suppose to be. Then after realizing he had kidnapped the boy (as if that wasn’t obvious), he decided to get rid of the evidence. It’s ridiculous how untrustworthy the world has become that an innocent child can’t turn to an adult and ask for help. He’s too young and naiive to know that you could harm him. Here is some of the original article:
“An 8-year-old boy who went missing after leaving day camp in Brooklyn Monday afternoon has been found dead, and police say he was snatched off the street by a stranger who later suffocated and dismembered him.
Police believe Leibby Kletzky, who would have turned 9 this month and was not used to walking home alone, had gotten lost and asked the suspect, Levi Aron, for help.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Aron told detectives that after he picked the boy up in his car and took him to his apartment, he later “panicked” after hearing about the missing person reports, which is why he killed him.
Some of the boy’s remains were found in Aron’s refrigerator, Kelly said.”
