Where Are Casey Anthony’s Parents Today? – In the three-part docuseries “Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies,” which was produced by Abby Hoyt (This is Paris), among others, Casey Anthony had the chance to address the audience for the first time. Anthony was put on trial in 2011 for the murder of her 3-year-old daughter Caylee, but a jury ultimately ruled him not guilty. Numerous additional programs and motion pictures have covered the case and Anthony, including Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery from 2017, although this time, Anthony is in charge of the storyline and her own story. Warning: There are references to rape and abuse.
It’s a very conventional true crime documentary with an interview-based format that will make you think of Netflix’s Killer Sally and The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez.
Although Anthony tries to be honest with us, the show’s plot and structure seem disjointed, and the pacing sometimes seems extremely quick. When a friend or news reporter offers their opinion on the situation, it sounds hurried and illogical. The creators appear to be attempting to convince various experts that this documentary series is vital, but as soon as they have given their opinions, the program quickly resumes. The hasty editing may make it difficult for the viewer to follow along with what is being stated.
The first episode keeps asking what the truth is, but instead of attempting to show Casey and the detectives’ truths as being in the same vein, it spends more time differentiating them. And it simply gives us a few specifics, no additional information about Caylee and why she was important. While the case centers on Caylee and Anthony since they are her mother, it prevents us from understanding how they are connected, which undermines part of the relevance of the show’s heart and goal.
Where the Truth Lies doesn’t feature George or Cindy Anthony; therefore viewers could be curious about their current whereabouts.
Who is Casey Anthony?
Casey Anthony said in Peacock’s Where the Truth Lies documentary that her father, George had sexually assaulted her from the time she was 8 to the time she was 12 and that he was responsible for Caylee’s demise. Jose Baez, Anthony’s defense lawyer, also asserted these things during her trial. Her father vehemently refutes these allegations.
Anthony also claimed in the documentary that she had learned from her father how to steal money and tell lies. She is seen viewing a video of Anthony telling her daughter to “learn by example” as well.
During the A&E interview, Cindy Anthony said to her husband, “You lied to me for several years, and that’s where our kid got it [from],” to which her husband responded, “Do not personally attack me.”
On the day Caylee died, Casey Anthony claimed in the documentary, she dozed off with her daughter while her father was home, and she “was awoken by him shaking me and asking me where Caylee was.”
She uttered: “That was illogical. Even if she had to use the restroom, she would never just leave me in my room. She would never even leave my room without informing me. She was aware that she wasn’t permitted to stay inside the house by herself.”
“I instantly began scanning the interior of the building. She’s not in the playhouse, so where might she be, I wonder as I head outdoors. What might she be doing? Made no sense and still makes no sense. Why did she do that on that particular day when she had never done it before?“
She continued by saying that she didn’t search the pool since her father had already located Caylee when she returned to the front of the home. She uttered: “Alongside her, he was standing there. She is completely drenched. I picture him there, holding her in his arms.”
“He handed her to me while accusing me of doing it, which was my fault. that I was to blame and that I simply passed out while holding her. She was cold and weighed a lot.”
Anthony continued: “He takes her away from me and instantly lowers his voice and says, “It’s going to be ok.” He assured me that she would be alright. I wanted her to be okay, so I wanted to believe him.”
“I have no idea how long I sat outside, and I have no idea where he went. He snatched her away from me and left. I am aware that he returned through the screen doors and entered the home, but I am unaware of his whereabouts or his actions. All I’ve wanted for so long is for her to come back.”
Anthony claimed in the documentary that she had “protected the person who hurt” her by lying to police because she was “doing what [she] was ordered” to do by her father. Additionally, she said that when her father assured her they would “be reunited soon” in June 2008, he misled her into thinking Caylee was still alive.

On November 15, Fox News Digital revealed images of George Anthony in front of the Orlando, Florida, house of his family. The still-married George and Cindy Anthony have frequently discussed their daughter, her trial, and their granddaughter’s passing in public.
They appeared on Chris Hansen’s Crime Watch Daily in 2017. In the interview, George Anthony addressed the claims made at his daughter Casey Anthony’s trial that he had molested Casey Anthony and had helped cover up Caylee Anthony’s accidental drowning death.
He said he was not involved: “It was reported that I had discovered Caylee in the swimming pool; however, by the time I dragged her out and hurried inside, she had already passed away. That is incorrect because it didn’t take place. It didn’t take place.”
He claimed that he wanted to “attack him, that’s how upset I was, but you know what I thought I was greater than this” when Anthony’s defense team brought up the allegations of sexual abuse during the trial.
Once more denying the accusations, he said that his wife Cindy, who was seated next to him, “knows it didn’t happen.”
When asked if they thought their daughter had killed Caylee, Cindy Anthony responded: “No, I don’t believe [that]. I genuinely don’t believe she killed the woman. I’m not sure what happened or if it was an accident. I’m not sure if Caylee drowned in the pool because Casey was preoccupied.”
Following the trial, George Anthony stated in the interview that he had “no relationship with [his] daughter,” and when asked if he had any advice for Casey Anthony, he replied: “Please keep your distance from me. She has a lot of explaining to do if she wants to have a relationship with her mother once more, but I don’t want to hear it.”
After a near-fatal vehicle accident in 2019, this changed. He and his wife appeared on the Dr. Oz Show to talk about the incident and how he wanted to “forgive” his daughter.
According to People, he revealed that Casey Anthony had gotten in touch with him following the incident and said: “For what she has sacrificed her mother, my son, me, and the fact that Caylee is no longer here. She has my forgiveness for all of this.”
Added him: “I’ve realised that’s the only way I can move on from a lot of things in my life. I have to be merciful. I have to forgive even if I’ll never forget.”
Cindy Anthony, Casey Anthony’s mother, made an appearance on Crime Scene Confidential in March 2022 and discussed the case.
In response to the assertion that her granddaughter had accidentally drowned, Anthony’s mother reportedly said of her daughter: “How come she didn’t tell us? Why didn’t she make a call? All of this would not have occurred.
“Oh my God, she put us through hell, it’s terrible. I’m certain that if I had discovered Caylee dead in the pool, I would have been horrified and would have held myself responsible for the rest of my life.”
Where the Truth Lies does not feature either George Anthony or Cindy Anthony, and neither has made any public remarks regarding the film’s release.
