caylee marie anthony
Birth: Aug. 9, 2005
Death: Jun., 2008
Murder Victim. Caylee was last seen on Father's Day 2008, although she wasn't reported missing until a month later on July 15. Her disappearance captivated a nation, making months of national media coverage after her mother, Casey, spun an outrageous tale full of inconsistencies after she claimed the nanny abducted the toddler. Updates on the missing girl, as well as her mom were reported nightly throughout the Summer and into the Fall on several news outlets. But all leads were proved false over a period of nearly six months, as her mother would be jailed, released and re-jailed on various charges. In October, Casey was indicted for first-degree murder.
Although Caylee still had not been located, the forensic evidence was suggesting that she was deceased from the very beginning. On December 11, 2008, the remains of Caylee were found less than a mile from the family home. Caylee was a bright toddler approaching her 3rd birthday. She could already count up to 45 in Spanish and knew her full name. She could also recite nursery rhymes and loved singing, "You Are My Sunshine."
Cause of death: Homicide
