On Feb. 25, 2014, the recent deposition in the Zenaida Gonzalez vs. Casey Anthony case was publicly released. Casey Anthony was acquitted on first-degree murder charges in the death of her two-year-old daughter Caylee in July 2011, but has been embroiled in legal battles since. She has spent several years in bankruptcy court and faces two civil lawsuits, one from the meter reader who discovered Caylee Anthony’s remains on December 11, 2008, Roy Kronk; the second from a woman with the same name as the babysitter Casey Anthony accused of kidnapping her daughter, Zenaida Gonzalez. In the deposition, Anthony denied that the nanny actually kidnapped Caylee, though this is contrary to statements made during the state of Florida’s investigation and search for her missing child.
During Anthony’s murder trial, her attorney Jose Baez stated that Caylee had never been kidnapped and her mother fabricated the story to cover up her own sexual abuse and neglect at the hands of her father, George Anthony. He stated that Caylee Anthony drowned in the family’s swimming pool and out of panic, they covered up the death and pointed blame on the nanny. Zenaida Gonzalez says that Anthony’s lie destroyed her life, caused her and her children emotional harm and suffering and resulted in financial loss. In the newly released documents and sworn deposition, Anthony states that the nanny “Zenaida Goznalez” was real and not fictitious. This is contrary to what Jose Baez stated during the trial.
When an attorney asked Anthony if she could prove that a nanny named Zenaida Gonzalez really existed, Anthony replied she couldn’t. Attorney Keith Mitnik inquired, “Now, is there any way in the world that you could suggest to me that I might find this person to see if she ever existed?"
Case Anthony answered, "I don't know if you could or not, sir."
