Rarely can I say Iddee that I don't think you have a clue about what you are talking about, but this is one of those times. She was a partying trollop that didn't give a squat what her Dad thought, she did what she wanted. The defense promised all kinds of mental and physical abuse from the father to Casey in opening statements, then did not follow up on one in any exam or cross - they made that all up, along with the swimming pool story and threw it at the wall to see what would stick.
Look at her party photos from Myspace, see the wild girl she was, not the stage prop that defense created using conservative clothing. The father George, no doubt had a mistress for 2.5 months while searching for the grand-daughter, he is no saint. But I don't believe for a minute he had any mind control over this habitual liar of a daughter who created 4 imaginary female friends and two imaginary baby daddy's just to fit the lies she created. None of which George formed, they all came from Casey's mind, not her Dad's.
Sadly, at the end, even her mother lied in court to cover for Casey, trying to take blame for searching Chloroform and chlorophyll, but her work records showed Cindy was at work that day, not at home searching on how to knock out or kill Caylee. Don't buy the hype, she is cold blooded, and cannot tell the truth if she had a rope around her neck and it could save her.
George tried to kill himself, left a 7 page hand-written note, stating he wanted to be with Caylee and never once did he state anything about doing anything that could have warped Casey's mind. He is a cheater, but I have heard nothing that made him out to be a bad father. Don't forget too that the Defense also dragged Roy Kronk into this saying the meter reader stole the girls bones for months and kept them until the reward was worth it, baseless. They blamed the brother Lee of fondling Casey, untrue. Everyone was guilty except Casey to hear her and the defense's sides. I'm surprised they didn't say Caylee didn't wrap her own face in duct tape, crawl into 3 trash bags and toss herself into a swamp after hiding a month in her mom's trunk - foolishness.
