Remains identified as those of Caylee Anthony

They were found near home of missing Florida girl; mother charged in case

updated 2 minutes ago


ORLANDO, Fla. - Skeletal remains found in the woods are the Florida 3-year-old who has been missing since June, and her death is considered a homicide, a county medical examiner said Friday.

DNA tests confirm that the remains match Caylee Anthony’s genetic profile, said the medical examiner, Dr. Jan Garavaglia.

A utility worker stumbled upon the remains last week, less than a half-mile from where the girl lived. Garavaglia said some of the remains discovered were as small as pebbles, and authorities weren’t certain how the girl was killed.

“Bottom line is, folks, no child should have to go through this,” said Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary.

Caylee’s mother, 22-year-old Casey Anthony, was indicted in October on first-degree murder and other charges, even though no body had been found. She has insisted that she left the girl with a baby sitter in June, but she didn’t report her missing until July.

A search team said they did not check the wooded area sooner because it was submerged in water.

Beary said his department was investigating reports that the utility worker who called in the tip leading to the discovery of the remains had tried several times in August to call in his suspicion about a bag in the area.

“If we missed a window of opportunity we don’t know,” he said. “I’m not throwing anybody under the bus because we don’t know. That’s why we conduct an administrative review.”

It's Caylee Anthony. Remains identified as missing toddler of Casey Anthony

Walter Pacheco, Sarah Lundy and Amy L. Edwards |Sentinel Staff Writers2:54 PM EST, December 19, 2008

It's Caylee Marie. The five-month mystery ended today when authorities confirmed that skeletal remains discovered in woods last week belong to the missing two-year-old girl.

Sheriff's officials delivered the news at a 2 p.m. press conference in Orlando. Word came after the FBI forensic lab in Virginia matched Caylee's DNA with bones found a quarter-mile from her grandparents' home.

Medical Examiner Dr. Jan Garavaglia said, "With regret, I am here to inform you that the skeletal remains found on Dec. 11 are those of the missing toddler Caylee Anthony."

Around 1:45 p.m. today, Caylee's mother, Casey Anthony, was notified in jail, where she is awaiting trial on a murder charge stemming from the child's disappearance this summer. Her reaction to the announcement is not known.

Garavaglia announced that "there was no trauma to the bones prior to death."

"The manner of death in this case is homicide," she said. "The cause of death will be listed as homicide by undetermined means."

Sheadded that "while I would love to explain the forensic aspects of this case to you... we must remember that everyone is innocent until proven guilty.

"I will not discuss specifics of the findings in this case at this time.

The remains will be given to the next of kin, which is her mother, Casey Anthony. She could sign the remains over to her parents, Garavaglia said.

Sheriff Kevin Beary almost teared as he spoke to the media.

"This would be a police chief or sheriff nightmare case. I think it's been an open wound in the community. I think we can start putting closure to those open wounds," Beary said as he teared up and mentioned he has two daughters. "No child should have to go through this...but closure is not done until a fair and equitable trial," he said.

FBI agent Steve Ibison said "It's a tough thing even for the most seasoned investigator to deal with."

Garavaglia added that investigators recovered many tiny, undeveloped bones. The bones were "all disarticulated and completely skelotenized. There was dispertion of remains over the area."

The toddler's grandparents -- George and Cindy Anthony -- learned the news at their home on Hopespring Drive. Their attorney, Brad Conway, said earlier Friday that the couple had remained hopeful that the remains were not Caylee's, but were realistic about the alternative.

On Thursday, sheriff's officials reported that the Orange County utilities worker who found the remains last week off Suburban Drive had alerted law enforcement three times in August about a suspicious grey bag on the side on the road.

WESH-TV reported that Roy Marvin Kronk is the meter-reader who discovered the bones.

Three times deputy sheriff's checked the tips, with no results. This discovery raised questions of whether Caylee's remains could have been found much sooner.

The Sheriff's Office is investigating how the calls were handled. The utilities worker -- who will have a news conference later today -- is not a suspect, a sheriff's spokesman said.

Anthony, 22, was indicted in October on various charges, including first-degree murder. She was first jailed in July, shortly after her daughter's disappearance was reported. Caylee was last seen alive in June.

Casey Anthony and her family have long insisted that Caylee Marie was alive, kidnapped by a baby sitter. Detectives have been unable to find the sitter and maintian she does not exist.

In late July, Casey Anthony told her brother, Lee, that "in my gut, she's still OK," during a conversation recorded by the jail.

"It still feels like she's, she's close to home," Anthony said. "That's still my best feeling at the moment."

The state attorney's office said last month it would not seek the death penalty for the mother, but prosecutors could reconsider based on new evidence. Hundreds of volunteers spent weeks searching for Caylee in the Orlando area, and law enforcement agencies across the nation have run down tips about possible sightings in their communities.

For the past nine days, federal and local crime scene investigators have been scouring the wooded acre where the remains were found, recovering bones and other evidence.

The property was under water in mid-August after Tropical Storm Fay – about the time when searches were being conducted.

Several hours after the first remains were found, Orange County detectives went back to the Anthony family home and searched for evidence that could link the home and the crime scene. Detectives had removed several items in large paper bags, as well as two vacuum cleaners and pesticide tanks.
