Casey Anthony’s parents, George and Cindy Anthony talked to Dr. Phil on Tuesday in part one of a two-part interview. The second part of the interview airs tomorrow.
He started off his questioning with whether or not they believe Casey had anything to do with Caylee’s death. George said, “Well, the last one I saw Caylee with was Casey. To me, in my mind, that one and one adds up to two. She’s responsible for Caylee – that’s her daughter.”
When Dr. Phil asks George to elaborate on what his definition of “two” is in that, George said, “Casey and Caylee, when I saw them leave on June 16, 2008, that was the last time I saw them together. And Casey, again, is responsible for Caylee no matter where she was at or what happened.”
Both George and Cindy admitted that Casey had stolen from their wallets and gas cans, but said that perhaps an illness was responsible for what went down. Cindy said, “I want to find out what’s wrong with Casey. I know there’s something wrong. She had a grand mal seizure after she came home the first time.”
She went on to say, “I’m not making justifications for that but there’s a cause for those. You don’t just have a grand mal seizure.”
Dr. Phil suggests that Casey is displaying “behaviors of an unconscionable psychopath”, adding, “As a mental health professional, I’m skeptical. I have not seen any evidence that Casey suffered from post-partum schizophrenia.”
He added, “I feel this mother is desperately reaching for any reason to excuse her daughter for her role in this tragedy.”
