George and Cindy Anthony, parents of Casey Anthony, appeared on the television show “Dr. Phil” to offer their views on what they believe happened to their three-year-old granddaughter, Caylee Anthony.
The two had very different opinions, with George Anthony believing someone drugged Caylee, while Cindy Anthony believes Caylee drowned.
“I believe that Casey or someone else that she was with, possibly gave too much to Caylee, she fell asleep and didn’t wake up. That’s what I feel,” George Anthony said on the “Dr. Phil” show.
Despite differing opinions on how Caylee died, both believe that Casey tried to cover their granddaughter’s death and knew where she was buried.
“I believe Casey knew or had knowledge of placing Caylee there,” Cindy Anthony said. “…I’m not justifying what Casey did. But until I find out what happened to Caylee and what happened to Casey that day, I have to live with what I know.”
The case of Caylee Anthony became national news when she went missing in Orlando in 2008. Her skeletal remains were found in an area close to the Anthony’s home in Dec. 2008.
Casey Anthony went to trial for her daughter’s death earlier this year and was acquitted in July, but found guilty of four charges of lying to the police. She’s currently in an unknown location in Florida, serving a year of probation for unrelated check fraud.
The episode with George and Cindy Anthony aired on Wednesday, Sept. 14, and was part of a two part interview. A part of the interview, which focuses on Casey Anthony’s trial, will air later in the month.
