In the latest missing Florida child case, mother of missing 3-year-old Caylee Anthony, Casey Anthony has now been released from jail after her bail has been posted. If you are unfamiliar with this story then you either do not live in Florida or don’t watch Nancy Grace.
So for those of you who are not familiar, Caylee Anthony is the toddler that has been missing since June and her mother Case, neglected to report her missing for five weeks. The story has taken several twist and turns to include mom being arrested on child neglect and obstruction charges, mom lying to investigators and her family, family’s unwavering support of mom, the child’s grandparents taking out much frustration in the middle of local and national media, cadaver dogs finding the scent of death, mom in jail for weeks because money for bond isn’t there. And throughout all of this, young Caylee Anthony is still missing.
But now, hope is on it’s way. Hope comes in the form of a bounty hunter and his team who are on a mission to get Casey out of jail and find Caylee. They have succeeded in part one of that plan. Nationally known bounty hunter team, led by Leonard Padilla and his bondsman nephew, have gotten Casey out of jail and are under a strong belief that Caylee is still alive, and after a fresh shower, new settings, and a system of trust in place, Casey will lead them to the location of missing Caylee.
Bounty Hunter Leonard Padilla of California, apparently is famous for his bounty hunting escapades, similar to a Dog the Bounty Hunter type. I spoke with Padilla a few different times. I asked him why he was doing this. It would seem obvious to some that it may have been for national recognition, but his answer was simply, “to find the baby.” That is quite admirable. Thinking about it, it is $500,000 of his money that he’s putting up in an effort to end this drama and find this child.
Not for nothin’, but there are a lot of theories out there, and I’m not one to speculate, but I believe this will turn out to have a tragic end. The family and Padilla believe that Caylee is still alive. In fact, they also believe that she has been kidnapped and that they know who the kidnappers are and that they are also under surveillance. But the thing is, there’s absolutely no evidence to show that is true. No one has brought forth ransom demands, no one with any clear motive, in fact the only person who would know for sure is Casey who has lied to everyone involved on multiple occasions. There is evidence out there to suggest that something foul has happened. Law enforcement isn’t stupid, and they do know what they are doing. If the information they are presented with, leads them to believe that some bad has happened to that child, then I would kinda have to lean with the law this time around.
