Caylee Was Only Two

Missing Fla. girl's mom appears in court; no bond

ORLANDO, Fla. - The mother of a missing 3-year-old Florida girl went before a judge Wednesday to hear charges she killed her daughter, a day after she was indicted following four months of searches that yielded no sign of the child.


Let's set the record straight: This little girl died months before her third birthday. The Anthony family continued to insist, despite damning forensic evidence, that Caylee was alive, and they held a "welcome home" birthday party for her. She then, of course, became "a missing 3-year-old". Throwing a birthday party for a dead 2-year-old child doesn't make her any older, and referring to little Caylee as 3 only makes a heartbreakingly sad story even sadder.
