Gotta Watch: Casey Anthony jail tapes

The Casey Anthony trial could be one of the most dramatic court cases since the O.J. Simpson criminal proceedings. The gut-wrenching testimony and reaction from Casey's parents spurred interest in what they had to say back in 2008 when Caylee was still missing. Here are some telling moments from the trial and from jail conversations Casey had with her parents.

The drowning theory – In 2008, Casey Anthony brushes off what her mom says is a media allegation that Caylee drowned in a pool. She then goes on to assure her mom that she knows in her heart that Caylee is okay.

Drowning defense – Fast-forward to the trial, where Casey's defense makes the case that Caylee Anthony did in fact drown in the family pool.

Casey gets angry – Here we get a glimpse of Casey's mindset during the time Caylee was missing. At the time, she came under fire for complaining that her entire life had been taken from her.

    During the recorded interview at Universal she said the "father" of Caylee had died and that she had probably saved the obit at home. Other than that no name has been stated as to the father of Caylee as I recall.

      I'm starting to wonder, beings NOONE knows very much about the father, and all she says is that he died, maybe she killed HIM TOO....way before this??

      ...and both her father & brother took the DNA tests to comfirm that they are NOT the child's father, and they are NOT. And even though she said that the child's biological father had died, but who would believe her? She lies so much, I would question every words that come out of her mouth.

      Why is the father relevant? Casey is on trial. And to make up some cooky theory that she killed the baby's father is pretty far fetched.

    Casey is truly "throwed" in the head. I hope the real truth comes out because she is either truly unstable, insane, or just a pathelogical liar. I believe her folks had something to do with this because nobody took the time to file a missing persons report early on. Why battle with this girl for 30 days about her child. She didn't care to thank about her child so daddy Anthony should have been on her behind from the jump.

    What amazes me is she claimed her father helped her dispose of Caylee. If thats the case she is lying right to his face and knows, he knows, she is lying. Which to me proves he didnt help her. Also the way she lies saying "I know she is alive" knowing her little body lay in the woods cause she put her there. ....Special place in hell for people like you Casey.

      Here a child is missing, and her father, a former police officer, picks up her daughter's car from the impound lot. The car had the smell of a dead body. Ummm, helooooo, McFly. Either this guy is the dumbest former police officer on the planet, or he's thinking real hard about how to get his daughter off the hook.

      @Robo_geek. Do your homework first. George picked up the car from a tow yard not a police "impound" as you called it, and at that time, there was no missing Caylee. He believed Casey and the car AND CAYLEE were in Jacksonville. He took the car home and Cindy went driving around town to find Casey. When she did find her WITHOUT Caylee, Cindy reported Caylee missing. Then the lies really began... give George and Cindy the break they deserve, they have a dead granddaughter and a daughter who will be...

    Look, it took so long for this case to come to trial, memories begin to fade, people are forgetting things; heck, even the murderess herself is probably forgetting that she did the crime. But for the sake of that poor little girl, I pray that justice will be served.

    This is just terrible. If she would have just taken it two inches farther back this would have never happened.

    With all respect Nancy grace you need to find something else to do for your life. With you, everyone is guilty until proven innocent. Well the bible says we shouldn't judge others and the same way you judge others is the same way you will be judged by God. Let the state handle this case. If she is guilty, it will be proven, otherwise let God be the final vindicator.

      Nancy Grace is a strident blowhard, but "innocent until proven guilty" only applies to the courtroom. Grace is a commentator who is free to take a position on Cayley's guilt and speculate on it. That's the way it has always been.

      Yes, lie upon lie upon lie with that girl. It's sickening. She sent everyone on wild goose chases even her own family knowing full well that child wouldn't be found alive. I am stunned at the amount of lies, who she lied to and how fast she was able to create lies.......unbelievable.

    Who the hell is this Jessie that Casey is afraid of? In this video testimony she seems to exude more of a fear of what he might say rather than he is dangerous to the safety of the family.

    George is mysteriously silent all through this jailhouse conversation. It seems to me there has been a long time habit of lying in this family and he has just sat back silently while it has gone on. It strikes me that Casey has been lying to her parents for years and years, and even though they have been aware of it; they have allowed her to get away with it and that's why she thinks she can convince the police and everyone else that she's telling the truth.

    Has anyone noticed while in jail the only person she asked for was (Tony) the boyfriend? Not Caylee? My baby is 12 if I couldn't find her in 31 seconds. There will be Assault on Precinct 13. No one gets in or out until my baby is found.

    Well we all know she did it from the lies the hard thing now is to know how she did it. I wish we could just duct tape her mouth and throw her away in a car for a month.
