A NEW documentary is being slammed by fans after Casey Anthony makes a shocking new claim about her daughter Caylee’s death.
The mother gave her first television interview since being found not guilty of her daughter’s murder on the documentary Casey Anthony: Where The Truth Lies and claimed her father George, 71, may have been involved in the death.
In response to the documentary streaming Nov. 29 on Peacock, fans were quick to criticize both Casey and the streaming service for giving her a platform.
“Casey Anthony’s bombshell in her documentary is amazing,” wrote one fan on Twitter.
“As in, I literally don’t believe her at all.”
Another Twitter user wrote: “I’d rather put my eyes on a cheese grater than watch a show where Casey Anthony tries to convince the world that she’s not a child killer.”
“Don’t watch the Casey Anthony documentary,” said a third.
Another critical viewer said: “Shame on Peacock for letting Casey Anthony tell another fictional sob story to sway public opinion.”
Caylee was two years old when her remains were found in a wooded area near the family’s Orlando, Florida home – six months after she went missing in 2008. Her disappearance went unreported to police for 31 days.
Casey was charged with her daughter’s murder and during a 2011 trial her legal team claimed that Caylee drowned in the family pool.
The mother was eventually acquitted of murder on July 5, 2011 – but convicted on four counts for giving false information to law enforcement.
Casey claimed in the documentary that her father sexually abused her and that she feared he molested Caylee as well.
She also accused him of being involved in her daughter’s drowning to cover up possible abuse.
Casey claimed in the documentary that she doesn’t know what happened to Caylee, but that “it all comes back to her father.”
She said of the day her daughter was last seen: “I was woken up [my father] shook me and wondered where Caylee was.
“That didn’t make any sense. She would never leave my room without telling me. I immediately started looking around the house. I’ll go outside and see where she might be.”
Seen in a clip from the series by personsCasey said that she then saw her father holding Caylee.
She said: “He stood there with her. She was soaking wet. He gave her to me. Said it was my fault. That I caused it
“But he didn’t rush to call 911 and he didn’t try to resuscitate her. I collapsed with her in my arms. She was heavy and cold.”
She added, “He takes them from me and he immediately softens his tone and says, ‘It’s going to be okay.’
“I wanted to believe him. He took her from me and left.”
Casey says she went to see her then-boyfriend Tony Lazzaro – but didn’t tell anyone what happened.
And she said for the next month that she “really believed” her daughter was still alive.
“My dad kept telling me she was fine,” she claimed.
“I had to follow his instructions. He told me what to do. I tried to behave as normally as possible.”
When asked if she believes Caylee drowned in the above-ground pool, Casey said no.
And she said there was no ladder or way for her to climb up, adding: “There’s no way to explain that, unless [George] Put her in the pool to cover up what he did.”
People reported that during the interview, Casey addressed allegations that she was sexually abused by her father, George, and brother, Lee.
“When I was eight, my dad would come into my room at night,” she claimed, according to Entertainment Tonight.
She said her brother started coming into the room when she was 12 and the behavior didn’t stop until she turned 15.
“I regret every day that I didn’t come forward about what he did to me,” Casey said of her father.
Both men have not been charged and deny allegations of abuse.
George has denied any involvement in the death, nor did he know where Caylee’s body was.
He has previously spoken out about what he describes as the immense pain his family has been going through.
“I really think there’s a certain number of people out there who don’t really understand what we’ve been through and how traumatic it’s been over the past nine years,” he told True Crime Daily.
“My gut feeling as a father, as a grandfather, I think Caylee was given something and she didn’t wake up. That is my feeling.
“Casey knows what happened to Caylee. I feel that in my heart.
“Do I feel like she took my granddaughter’s life? I don’t want to believe it, but Casey is the one who can answer that question.”
George also spoke about the allegations against him.
“They said I found Caylee in the pool, I went in the pool to get her, brought her out and fell in and she was already dead,” George said.
“That’s wrong because it didn’t happen. It did not happen. They wanted to blame me and I said ‘no’.
“I said, ‘I’m not going to fall for something I had nothing to do with.'”
After Casey’s bombastic claims in previews for the documentary, George and his wife Cindy were spotted in Florida.
He did not comment on the allegations made by Casey.
Made an admission
Also in the documentary, Casey spoke about the impact losing Caylee had on her.
“I lost everything the day I lost her,” Casey said.
Despite the fact that Casey was found not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter, and aggravated child molestation, she was convicted of lying to police about leaving Caylee with a babysitter, telling people she was missing , and getting a call from Caylee , among other things.
“I lied to law enforcement. I admitted to lying to law enforcement, so I’m a convicted liar,” Casey said.
“I have to live with it, knowing that I didn’t protect my child.”
She also admitted that she lied to a friend and convinced him he was Caylee’s biological father.
Instead, she said she was raped when she was 18, which led to her pregnancy with Caylee.
Casey said in the documentary that not reporting Caylee missing was a coping mechanism.
She added that she has “used and manipulated everyone around me to appear normal, which is extremely abnormal.”
“I am deeply embarrassed by everything that has happened… [and] so many of the days that followed,” Casey said
“I wasn’t the same person sitting here.”
