What house did you live at? A Q A Q the house? A Q A Q We have four bedrooms. And did Caylee Marie have her own bedroom? Yes, she did. During that time period, was it your 4937 Hopespring Drive.

she met her first boss back in June of 2004. Q All right. Now, but I'm talking about in

daughter, as a dependent on your taxes? A years old. Q So it's fair to say she paid her own taxes or No. I haven't claimed Casey since she was 18

So back during the 2004 time period, are you saying you saw a W-2 come in? A Q A Q Yes, I did. How about in 2005? I don't recall. Don't recall seeing it. And how about going

forward from there 2006, 2007? A Q A No. And then 2008? The only reason is because that was her first I did not

Q A Q

Do you know if she ever received a tax refund? All I've seen was an H&R Block card from her. All right. So as far as -- let's go back now

to the period when -- she was taking care of Caylee and there were issues about baby-sitters. focus in on it. I just want to

Your understanding was she had a job

that was the same job of the boss that you had met back in 2004? A Q A Yes, similar. Similar. Was it at the same company?

the last time was she actually did, in fact, have a job? A Q I can't remember the exact date. Is it fair to say, though, that you've come

now at this point in time to find out that she did not actually hold a job at Universal Studios back in about a year ago or so back in March of April of last year? A Q She never worked for Universal Studios. Did she have any job you're aware of now in

March or April of last year where she received a paycheck? A Yes.

Where was that? Through my -- where my son works. And what's that? Click and Park. I'm sorry? Game Day, Click and Park. I'm not sure of the

exact name, but I know that she did receive a paycheck because she did help him. Q A Q A How much did she receive; do you know? I have no idea. And what was her position? She just helped him with some of his work on

the Super Bowl last year, a year ago. Q So Super Bowl a year ago would have been in, Other than

CAnthony-rough.txt 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 Rough Draft - 12 receiving last year? A Q Not -- no, not to my knowledge. So is it fair to say your understanding is

that she did not have a source of income certainly from Universal or any of those other entities associated within Universal back in 2008? A Q That's correct. Okay. Now, your husband has testified and

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22

we've heard from him about who watched your granddaughter, and it's my understanding that she lived in your house, of course. And did you help contribute

for feeding her and clothing her, all that type of stuff? A Q A Yes, I did. Paid medical bills, I assume? No, I never paid -- I think I only paid one

medical bill for Caylee, and that was right after Caylee was born. Q Is it fair to say that you were involved

actively in raising her? A Q time? A Q 2008? A Q A Q A Genteva Home Care. What was your position? I'm a nurse manager. And do you have a certain shift that you work? I work day term. Page 10 Yes. And where was it you were working back in Yes. And of -- my understanding is you work full

depends on what time I wanted to be there.

But usually

there at least by 8:30, and then till 5:00, 5:30, 6:00 or whatever. Q A Q A Q A Q A Q Is that a Monday through Friday? Monday through Friday. Home health nurse is what you are? Nurse manager in a home healthcare company. There's night shifts and then there's day? Not in my company. So just day shift? Not for what I do. And your husband was also working back in

2008; is that correct? A Q Yes. And what was his job, let's say, starting with

January through December 2008? A You know, I can't remember. George has had a

couple jobs in 2008. Q

I can't remember what he had.

There were periods of time, though, that both

of you were working; is that correct? A Q Yes. Now, at the times that George wasn't working,

would George be actively involved in the watching of your granddaughter? A George was actively involved with Caylee when

CAnthony-rough.txt he was working or when he wasn't. We both were. Q I want to be clear on my question so let me

clarify it again, and I apologize. A Q I thought you were finished. That's okay. I apologize.

What I'm saying is when he

wasn't at the office or wherever he was working and he was at home, would he be the one that was in charge of watching her and babysitting for her, taking care of her? A Q If Casey wasn't there, yes. Now, if Casey wasn't working during this time

period and your husband was taking care of your granddaughter, do you know where Casey would have been going if she wasn't working or do you have any information on that? A Q I -- I have no idea. Aside from you watching your granddaughter and

George watching your granddaughter and then, of course, Casey, of the three of you watching her, what would you say the percentage was? Do you think that you and your

husband watched her more than Casey back in, let's say, before 2008, the 2007 time period? A No. I think Casey watched Caylee more than

any of us did. Q Okay. So a statement that 99 percent of the

25 time was you or your husband, you're saying that Casey Rough Draft - 15

1 2 3 4 5

watched her more often? A Casey watched her more often. I was --

Casey -- when I would come home from work, I would be there. Q Right. Page 12

A

CAnthony-rough.txt And I would not necessarily watch Casey, I

mean, Caylee, but Caylee was in the same house. Q A I understand. So unless Caylee, you know, unless Casey was

gone from the house, then I didn't have to, quote, unquote, baby-sit her -Q A I understand that. -- and on the weekends. So if I'm working

Monday through Friday 40 to 50 hours a week -Q Now, and if your understanding is that Casey

doesn't have a full-time job during this time period, if she wasn't watching her and your husband wasn't watching her and you weren't watching her, did you all have any other baby-sitter during this time period? A Caylee. Q Let's kind of go back on that. Would one of There was different people that baby-sat

Lauren Gibbs. Lauren Gibbs would have babysit her when? Right after Casey went back to work, which was

three months after Caylee was born. Q So do you know how long a time period it was

that Lauren Gibbs watched her? A Lauren Gibbs watched her probably until about Page 13

January what year would that be? 2006. And do you know if she was ever compensated or

paid for watching her? A I don't believe so. Lauren did that as a

favor because she was Casey's best friend. Q And as far as other people in that same

category, people who did it because they were friends with either you or your husband or the family, who else would be in the category of let's call them baby-sitters? Who else would there be?

That was like three days after Caylee went That was -- that was just

missing and, do you know what? a misstatement. Q And that's fine.

We're clarifying.

That

statement there that this is somebody whose name you had heard. A Q And probably no sleep for, you know. That statement, just to be clear on the record

that this is somebody whose name has been in normal conversation around your house for three years prior to Caylee's birth, that's inaccurate? A Q A Q That's inaccurate. Right. From about 2006, to clarify that. So you're sitting here as we sit here today,

again, this is at a different circumstance than that -are you saying that her Zanny's identity was conversed around your house from when until when? A Zanny's name came up back around when Jesse

and Casey were engaged, and that was in 2006. Page 21

CAnthony-rough.txt 25 Rough Draft - 26 Q So in 2006, you first heard the name Zanny.

Did you ever hear Jesse talk about Zanny? A Q A Q A Yes. Did jesse Grund talk about Zanny? Yes. What did Jesse Grund say as far as who -I can't remember. I just know the name came

up while he was -Q When I say talk about Zanny, I want to be a Did Jesse Grund ever

little bit more clear about that.

tell you that he had met or seen Zanny? A Q No. So where the name came up, it may have been in

conversation as you said, but it wasn't like I just came from Zanny, and -A Q A Q No. -- Zanny was watching Caylee; is that right? No, correct. Let me expand that question out a little bit.

Is there any other person besides your daughter that has told you that they have met or seen Zanny? A Q A Q A No, but Caylee talked about Zanny's dog. We'll get to that in a second. She's another person. I appreciate that. I just want to be clear?

25 Rough Draft - 27

If there's a dog that belongs to Zanny, then

there must be a Zanny. Q Fair enough. Besides your daughter and Caylee Page 22

CAnthony-rough.txt saying that about the dog, okay, is there any other adult that has said to you I have met Zanny or I know who she is? A Q pointed. Not that I'm aware of. I'm just going to hit this briefly on this You said Caylee talked about the dog. Describe

for me what time period we're talking about that was. A 2008. Q A Q dog? A Q A Q She talked about her dog. Okay. Caylee loved dogs. So I assume there is a statement about the dog March and May -May have been even before that. Anything else besides the statement about the Probably sometime between March and May of

and that would be the extent of it? A Q Uh-huh. So sort of backing up then, as far as whether

Zanny was somebody that any adult saw, you don't have any knowledge that this Zanny person who was watching Caylee

25 was seen by any adult; is that right? Rough Draft - 28

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

A Q

I wouldn't know if anybody saw her, you know. That's kind of what I'm getting at. You

wouldn't know -A How would I know if you saw somebody. I

wouldn't know if she saw me.

I'm not in someone else's That's kind

Q Zanny. A

Okay.

CAnthony-rough.txt Did anybody say to you, hey, I met

She's a nice girl? No, I never -- Zanny never came up in

conversation with anybody other than Casey typically. Q So where you're saying here on Greta

Vansustren, and we got the dates wrong but you're saying in normal conversation around your house, that normal conversation you're talking about is from Casey and you; is that right? A Q Right, or my husband George. And it's your understanding that he had never

seen Zanny either; is that right? A Q That's correct. And once again, as far as the phone number and

how to get ahold of her or address, that would have been all information that had been given to you by Casey and you say you've turned all that over? A Right. Casey would give me a new phone number

25 Rough Draft - 29

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

for Zanny probably every three months because she said the girl changed her phone number almost like she changed her address. Q A Q Did Casey tell you that she was paying Zanny? I never asked her. Okay. What was your understanding of whether

Zanny was doing it for free or whether she was getting compensated? A My understanding was Jeffrey Hopkins was

paying Zanny, who was his ex-girlfriend, to watch his little boy Zachary when Casey first met Zanny, and Jeffrey was compensating for both children. Page 24

CAnthony-rough.txt 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 Q A Q Okay. And then later on -Let me stop you there, and we'll get to that

in just a second. A Q I'm answering your question. You are, ma'am, and I appreciate that. Your

understanding is that Jeffrey Hopkins was the ex-boyfriend of Zanny? A Q Yes. And how did you gain that understanding or

that knowledge? A Because that's what Casey told me. When she

25 first met Jeff, she was working for -- I believe she was Rough Draft - 30

still working for Colorvision or Kodak, one of them, I don't know when they changed hands, and Jeffrey was a IT tech at Universal. Q A Okay. And that's when I saw his picture and

Zachary's picture. Q A Q Now, where is Jeffrey Hopkins today? I have no idea. Now, the information that Zanny was the

ex-girlfriend or girlfriend of Jeffrey Hopkins came you to by Jeffrey Hopkins? A Q A Q No, I never met him. How did you get that information -From Casey. I'll finish the question and we'll get it.

You know what I'm asking and I appreciate it. The information about Jeffrey Hopkins being Page 25

Obviously, I was wrong.

Jeffrey Hopkins and this relationship between

was paying Zanny after Jeffrey Hopkins was no longer paying her? A Q I didn't ask. Wasn't an issue.

Did you have an assumption in your head that

Zanny is something who charges for her services? A Q Again, the -- it never came up. Little different question, though. Did you

have an assumption in your head that Zanny was somebody who charges for childcare? A By that time Casey and Zanny had been friends,

didn't ask who was compensating Zanny, so I have no understanding. I do not know. Again, Zanny was a friend

of Casey's, so she could very well have volunteered. That did not come up. Q Did Casey say to you that Zanny, my friend, is

volunteering to watch my daughter? A Q The subject did not come up. So when you're saying it could have happened,

that's not something you know either -A Q I can't speculate. Ma'am, I appreciate that. Let me finish my

question, if you don't mind.

When you're saying it could

have happened, that isn't something you know by a affected that you've learned from anybody; is that right? A Q No. So as far as whether she was volunteering,

No, and I don't know if Casey ever paid Lauren

BY MR. DILL: Q I just want to clarify. You have no specific

knowledge that Zanny was doing it for free or being paid from 2007 on; is that correct? A Q As I stated, I have no particular knowledge. Now, when you said Casey was working after

2007, is this based on the information you told me before about her working at Universal or is it based on some other fact that we haven't talked about? A Casey never worked at Universal Studios, for Page 29

Universal Studios.

Anybody affiliated with Universal Studios or Hard Rock Café, which you told me about earlier. Do you have any

understanding or information that Casey was working for any entity after 2007 when Jeff Hopkins was out of the picture going forward? A At this -- at that point, I was under the I do not have any proof

impression that she was working. that she was working. Q

And you've come to learn that she was not

working; is that correct? A Q That's correct. So when you said before that Casey was working

So you told me before you never Did you ever talk to Casey

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21

point in time was it that you were called from Zanny's apartment knowing anywhere in town or any of the counties around here, including Osceola and Sanford, that she was calling from somewhere? A Q Zanny only lived in Orange County. She only lived in Orange County, and how do

you know that? A Q A Because Casey told me. All right. And when did Casey tell you that?

Over the years that we talked about Zanny,

that she lived -- the places that she described, the areas of town that she described, was only in Orange County. Q So when she called from the apartment, did

Zanny ever have a house or was it always an apartment? A It was always an apartment, to my knowledge, It

except her mom had a house, I believe, was a house. could have been an apartment. Q from Casey? A Casey, of course. Page 31

You're getting that information about her mom

CAnthony-rough.txt 22 23 24 Q And so all the information you have about All the information you have

apartment, that would have been Casey telling you I'm calling from Zanny's and it's wherever it is? A tonight. Q How many times did Casey stay out of the house I mean, we're talking about Right. She'd say I'm going to stay at Zanny's

Let me narrow it down.

How many times was it

before June 15th that Casey stayed out of the house with Zanny and with Caylee? A Q Maybe on an average once or twice a month. And during this time period, you're saying

that Caylee was able to speak and talk about where she had been or where she had gone? A Well, Caylee's been speaking since she was 18 Unless I specifically

going to go on forward a little bit here in the March time period because we're already into 2008, March through May of 2008, it's your understanding that Zanny is a baby-sitter for Caylee; is that correct, or a nanny, baby-sitter, whatever you want to use? A Q Yes. And that's all, again, based upon what Casey

has told you, essentially, that she's the one watching her; is that right? A Q A Q A Right. All right. And that wouldn't be very often. How often would it be? You know, just -- most of the time Casey was

gone in the evenings so I would watch Caylee. Q So when you said that there were times where

she would stay over at Zanny's house, that would be how many times would you estimate? A Q I said once or twice a month. Once or twice a month, so we're starting at

what time period of once or twice a month she stayed over there? A It would have had to have been when -- she had

25 to have gone when I was at work because if I had been Rough Draft - 40

home, she wouldn't have needed to take her. Q How about with the staying over part because

you would be home every night, wouldn't you? A Right, but if she was already gone and I was Page 33

remember if it was a Pomeranian mix or what it was. Q And when she's saying she liked playing with

the dog, how did she describe the dog? A Q A months ago. Q She talked about the new puppy, then how did She just called it her -- the new puppy. So -I can't remember the name. It was several

you get in your mind about Zanny and the new puppy? A Because I asked her if it was Zanny's puppy.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Q A Q

And she responded yes? Yes. So there is no other description besides the

new puppy in all that? A Q A Correct. What time period was this that that was said? I believe I told you somewhere between March

and May, and it could have been earlier than that. Q So when she stayed out of the house, let's say Page 34

10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24

It was all the time. All the time? Uh-huh, once or twice a month. Going back to when? Probably December. December 2 -January or December. January, December 2007, so you're saying once

or twice a month from January to December -A Q Yeah, January 2008, December 2007. Till May. Again, you never picked up either

CAnthony-rough.txt I don't know if law enforcement knew to ask me

about a dog. Q A Well -Oh, actually, I do remember speaking to law

enforcement about it because there was a tip that came in from Texas in July, and the person fit Zenaida's description, and she had the same type of dog. And the

little girl at the pool said her name was Caylee, and she fit the description of my granddaughter, so I did speak to them about it. Q And this -- that was in response to the tip

probably either John Allen or Gary Mellich because they were on the case or could have been Nick Savage from FBI Page 36

CAnthony-rough.txt because I spoke to them with tips. Q And every one of those -- you had interviews

with them that were recorded; is that right? A Q A I know that now. Okay. No one told me that when we were having them.

Q

So is it fair to say when you were -- when you

were talking and you're being open and honest with them, clearly? A Right. It wasn't during those taped

interviews, though, that you guys have seen on TV. Q A It's another interview you're saying -It's when I used go down to the sheriff's

department three times a week and go over tips with them. Q A And it still -They didn't pull me into a room where they had

video, so I'm sure that was not part of the video. Q So you don't know right now as you're sitting

here who it was from law enforcement that you spoke with? A No. I'm sure it was someone from missing

persons because that's who I would, you know, go over tips with. It was either Cary Roddick or Awilda and, I'm

sorry, I can't remember her last name right now. Q And there was -- was that one occasion or more

than one occasion or just in response to that tip? A occasions. I talked to them about these tips on several Sometimes the same tip on several occasions

so I can't tell you how many times. Q Now, when Casey would stay over at the

it wasn't a curling iron.

that Casey had at the house. where did you get that.

She said Zanny gave it to me.

And same thing about a year or so ago Casey had some videos and she said that Zanny didn't want the videos anymore so we had some videos at the house so I gave them to John Allen and Cary rod Rick from missing persons because I thought that there might be fingerprints on them. I also gave them Caylee's airbag at that time that Casey bought specifically for Zanny's apartment if she ever had to stay overnight there. Q A needed it. Q A And where was -- where was the airbag? The airbag's with the sheriff's department. She would bring the airbag with her? Casey had the airbag in her car so if she ever

The house meaning your house? Yes. Okay. So this wasn't a trip where, as you

said before, that there would be times where she slept over and that the air mattress would have gone with her. This wasn't one of them; is that right? A No. From my understanding, on June 16th,

Casey was going to pick Caylee back up at 4:00 in the afternoon or whatever time it was. Q Okay. Well, you were aware of the presence of

CAnthony-rough.txt 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 Q A When was that? Actually, I didn't even think about the air

mattress until -- till the day they gave it to John Allen, and I can't remember the specific date, but it was the day after they did their first search of the house. Q So the date they first searched your house

would have been after the 911 calls; is that right? A Q house? A That's what I'm just saying. I can't remember Yes. When was the date of the first search of the

very next day because of what they were looking for in the house is when I started thinking that next morning and I was cleaning, and when I saw the hair straightener, I said, oh, my gosh, because they were looking for evidence at that time. It was the first time they were

actually looking in my house for evidence, so I thought something that may have fingerprints or hairs on it, so I went through closets. I went through things to see if

anything would trigger in my head something that they could use. So I also gave them her favorite movies like bam by and different things so that they could take fingerprints off. Q A you. Q This air mattresses you're telling she about, We're getting far -You asked me a question and I'm explaining to

this is something that Casey used to take with her to Page 41

through the house that you actually thought about whether the air mattress had been taken to Zanny's house or not? A Like I said, I happened to stumble across the

25 air mattress and I had more gotten about the air Rough Draft - 50

take this air mattress over to have her daughter Caylee sleep at Zanny's? A Yes, I did. When I gave it to John Allen that

was the reason I handed it to John Allen. Q Prior to the time you handed it to John Allen,

there were other times you talked to investigators? A Again, I forgot about the air mattress until I

rank across it when I was looking specifically after they searched the house on the first time so I wouldn't have had a reason to think about it. Q So during the 31 day time period when Caylee

in your mind was missing, that you -A mind. Q There came a point by July 3rd at least you 31 day period Caylee was not missing in my

that thought she was missing? A No, I did not believe that Caylee Marie was Page 42

CAnthony-rough.txt 24 missing until July 15th. If I would have thought that

25 Caylee Marie was missing before July 15th, I would have Rough Draft - 51

Yes, I opened a Myspace account. And you actually would post on Myspace, right? I posted it for my daughter -- for Casey's

benefit only because I didn't have any friends on Myspace, and I did it -Q Let me hand you -- we'll go ahead and mark And that's -- you recognize that,

this as an exhibit. don't you. ( A Q

Exhibit No. Yeah, I know it.

was marked.)

I wrote it.

You wrote it and this is something you put on

Myspace, correct? A Right, for Casey. And I tried to get her to

be my friend so she could read that. Q posting? A Q July the 3rd. All right. And you say, what? What is the All right. So what is the date of that

title of the posting? A Q My Caylee is missing. All right. So is it fair to say that when you

wrote this, your mind was that Caylee, in fact, was Page 43

doesn't mean what it says? A Q No. Okay. So on July 3rd did you ever think to go

look for this air mattress or find out if, in fact, the air mattress had been taken over to Zanny's house? A Q No. So this wasn't until sometime later that you

thought of it and you didn't -A I didn't think of it until I ran across it

when I was looking for things in the house that could potentially help the sheriff's department. Q Okay. Now, you told me a few moments ago that

there was a time period I guess where she would stay over at Zanny's house. Did you ever have any notation In other

anywhere of when those times could have been?

words, some people keep a diary, calendar while it's going on. Can you direct me specifically from this May

or March time period on through to June what days would it have been? A Q I have no idea. You have no idea and there's no way --

A Q A Q

I have no idea. There is nothing we can look at to tell us? Absolutely not. Let me clarify a couple other things here. CK

if any, maybe one and the only time Casey -Video being played. Page 44 Was they were crashing at

CAnthony-rough.txt 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 Zanny's. Q So the crashing at Zanny's, I want to talk

about that is that what you're describing to me that she would say to you she was crashing over at Zanny's? A Q Uh-huh. And those times she was crashing over at

Zanny's it's your recollection that she would bring the air mattress with her? A No. When Casey knew that she may work late or

what she had told she when she would work late, she would take the air mattress and have it in her car. Okay? And

if she felt that it was too late to come home and to disrupt Caylee, she would stay at Zanny's and stay overnight and then she'd be home the next morning. Q A And say she was crashing? She was crashing at Zanny's. That way she

could sleep on the couch or wherever next to Caylee in the air mattress and then pick her up -- and then bring

25 her home the next day. Rough Draft - 54

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Q

So there would be times -- you physically saw

her taking the air mat trers with her when she left with her daughter? A Q A No, not really. Did you ever see your daughter case -Because I was thrnt when she would leave to

take Caylee. Q So all this with whether she had the air

mattress or not, again, that's coming from Casey; is that correct? A From shy understanding I believe I saw the air Page 45

12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24

CAnthony-rough.txt mattress in Casey's car quite a bit. Q A Okay. But it wasn't in Casey's car when we got the

car on July 15. Q I understand that and we're going to get to

that but I want to focus back on this time period where she's staying over at Zanny's house, you're saying that when she would work late, she would take the air mattress with her; is that right? A No. What I'm saying is if she thought there

was a possibility -- if Zanny would watch her in the evenings, she may have the air mattress with her. If she

watched her during the day, she may not have the air

25 mattress with her. Rough Draft - 55

Q A

This was, again, from March to May of 2 # 008? No, actually I stated before it was probably

from January. Q January do May 2008, bow I think, maybe I'm

wrong, we've already established as of now know that she did not have a job CK and so she would not have been working late between January and May of 2008 #? A Q That's my understanding. All right. Now, how do you reconcile your

understanding that she didn't have a job so she wouldn't be working late and then she would be crashing at Zanny's as you said -- ma'am, if I may -- crashing at Zanny's as you told the investigators, how do you reconcile in your mind those two things? A Q You mean now? Yes, ma'am. Page 46

CAnthony-rough.txt There are two different opposite things.

One is that

she's working and she's staying out and she has to crash over at Zanny see as you told the police officers. And

25 the other thing is that she wasn't working. Rough Draft - 57

A

I don't know if she was staying out.

You're

speculating and I'm not going to speculate.

She could

have just been staying with a friend and her and Caylee and the frind could have had just a nice night. I have

no idea and I'm not going to speculate on where my daughter was. I'm not going to speculate. And you

shouldn't either. Q

You don't have a Chris tap ball.

I thought you told the police officers, again,

we just looked at the clip, that she would have been crashing at Zanny's so that swrob your understanding based -A That's on -- that's my understand at that And searches then I found out that Casey wasn't

working and I found out a lot of stuff since then. Q A All right. But unfortunately, you know, you're asking me I don't know where Casey was at,

something I don't know.

and I don't know the circumstances. Q Is it fair to say, then, if you don't know

where Casey was at, it's very possible that your granddaughter was never with Zanny? A I can't speculate. She could very well have

been with Zanny. Q But you really don't have any information and

25 you also know now that she wasn't working during this Rough Draft - 58 Page 48

Let's go forward.

time period up to May when shy said she was crashing at Zanny's, you've come to learn now that it wouldn't be because she was working late because she did not have a

25 job; is that right? Rough Draft - 60

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

A Q

That's what I'm understanding. Okay. So but your daughter told you she was

working late and working, right? A Q Yes. And is it fair to say then that your daughter

was not being truthful with you? A Q That's correct. And that wouldn't have been the only time she

was untruthful with you; is that right? A Kids are untruthful all the time. Page 50

CAnthony-rough.txt 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 Q This -- her being untruthful about this,

though, is particularly important because it has to do with your granddaughter, though. She was untruthful with

you about the location of your granddaughter certainly from this time period when she said when she was working late she was crashing at Zanny's; is that correct? A I don't know that because she could have been You're having me speculate that You're telling me that I know

Casey was not at Zanny's.

for a fact that there is no Zanny. Q Okay. Let's go forward here. I want to ask Safn any

I'm saying?

So this person wasn't made up just a month

ago or whatever, but when I'm thinking I think that Zanny at this point was a real person in the beginning, but I think Zanny is now whoever is watching Caylee. mind man man transferred the responsibility? A The name, yes. So I think she refers to -- I In my

believe -- man man do you think we're spinning our wheels looking for a Zanny. THE WITNESS: I'm not sure but my -- I have I think

two theories and I'll share that with you.

Zanny could either be Amy or Jesse at this point CK CK Dill. Q All right. So, again, we're talking here, and

this is today and this interview with the police was taken some time ago, obviously, I think it was in August Page 51

CAnthony-rough.txt 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 Rough Draft - 62 of last year? A Q I think it was like August 1st. We've been talking about Zanny and her

watching the child and you just told me that you don't know that she wasn't over at Zanny's, yet you told the police that you're not even sure if Zanny was a person -a real person moving forward from the beginning? A Again -MR. CONWAY: Object to the form of the

question because that's not what she said.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20

Q

Let me go back.

I'll rephrase it.

Okay?

You've told me for the last I guess hour and a half we're talking about Zanny -- we're talking about Zanny, but you've told police that it was in your mind there's a thought that Zanny while she may have been a real person at one point in time had evolved into anybody that was watching Caylee? A Q That was my feeling on August 1st. Now, here we are, whatever today is, April

9th, you're saying what you told the police officers on August 1st was not accurate? A No, I'm not saying that. And on August 1st I

believe that Zanny could have been -- because Casey at one point told me that one of the pictures that Caylee was taken at was Zanny's apartment when it was Ricardo Morales' apartment. Q I understand the one with the drums. But

let's go back to thnchts there are several. several.

There are

There is one with Caylee with her blanket.

There are several pictures of Caylee -Page 52

and you're talking to investigators you that think Zanny may have been a real person at first but then later it

25 was somebody who was watching -- ma'am, if I may -Rough Draft - 63

whoever was watching her, that is what you said back there in August and again -A Q A That's why said could be a possibility. -- you were telling the police officers? Yes. At that point we were looking at all

you know that your daughter gave information to the police; is that right? A Yes, I was there when she wrote the statement. I was there when

I was there when she told Jerry Melich. she told the other detectives. Q

It's also your understanding that squint to

when she was incarcerated, when she first cas put in jail, that she actually had been interviewed by the police about this person, about this Zenaida Gonzalez; is that right? A Yes. My understanding is also what I've read

and I've seen on the discovery page 4 of the narrative from John Allen that he pulled your Zenaida out of the David file. He went down and spoke to her, and then he

showed Casey a picture of her, and Casey did not recognize her. John Allen also told me that there was

read in the discovery, the narrative. MR. CONWAY: Can we stop it for a minute.

You're making it awfully hard on the court reporter. You're stepping on her. Could we go to a question

and let her answer it for you. Q I appreciate that on this pointed that we're

was at because I wasn't home. Q Did she ever tell you, mom, Caylee and I

stayed over at Ricardo's house? A Q No. And it's fair to say that would have been

probably something you would have disapproved of because Caylee really should have been home in her own bed? A Q I would have to know the circumstances. Can you think of a circumstance around the

June time period where it would have been something you approved of having Caylee and Casey sleep over at Ricardo's house without you knowing about it? A Q I don't know what circumstance would be. So if, in fact, Caylee and Casey were staying

at Ricardo's house on June 7th -A It's not my decision where Casey stays. She's

take stuff out of context and think just because it's said that, you know, that it means anything. Q Well, I think that's part of the problem here

that what is said is -A Part of the problem is number one, again, this
