The Orange County Sheriff’s Office has released tapes from the interrogation of Casey Anthony in the investigation of the suspected death of her daughter Caylee. The tapes from July 16th not only show the disbelief and suspicion of the police, but also the perils of participating in such interrogations without counsel.
On the tape, you can hear one detective say, “Right now, looking at you, I know that everything that you’ve told me is a lie, including the fact that your child was last seen a month ago and that you don’t know where she is. I’m very confident that you know where she is.”
Anthony replies, “I don’t.” The investigator responds “You do, and we need to get past that. . . .
I understand that right now, Caylee may not be in very good shape. She may not be the way your family last remembers her. We need to find out where Caylee is. … This has gone so far downhill and this has become such a mess that we need to end it.”
Anthony responds, “I have no clue where she is. If I had any sense of where she was at all, none of this would have happened.”
The police use classic pressure and confrontation techniques to try to breakdown the mother, who does not ultimately admit to anything. However, the tapes can be used against her in court.
