As a memorial to remember Caylee Anthony took place on Tuesday, questions still remain about Casey Anthony, the mother of the toddler who was acquitted of murdering her. Anthony, who didn't attend the memorial, will soon have to come out of hiding and report to an Orlando probation office.
Meanwhile, Judge Belvin Perry's ruling to settle the confusion over Casey Anthony's one-year probation sentence for check fraud is expected to come down later this week. Department of Corrections records indicated that the agency supervised Anthony while she was in jail awaiting trial for her daughter's murder, but the sentencing judge, Stan Strickland, recently filed an amended order to make it clear that he intended for her to serve probation after her release, according to CNN.
Hundreds gathered at a wooded area just outside Orlando on Tuesday for a memorial in remembrance of Caylee. Today would have been her 6th birthday. Many locals came wearing purple, Caylee's favorite color, as the event began at 6 p.m. Among the attendees who came to honor Caylee were her grandparents, George and Cindy Anthony, holding a cluster of purple balloons.
Bring Kids Home, a charity for missing and abused children, organized the memorial in hopes of establishing this site as a permanent spot to remember Caylee.
Eddie DelValle, Florida director of Bring Kids Home, said the memorial will include a path that will lead visitors into the woods to a light-projected halo that marks the spot where Caylee's skeleton was discovered.
"Mostly tourist families come here. I've met people from Germany, Canada and Orlando. Some you see, they break down at the site," DelValle told Reuters.
To remember Caylee and other missing kids, organizers of the memorial will sell bricks for visitors to purchase and inscribe messages for a roadside wall marker. Brick sales will help pay for the expected $200,000 cost of the project, according to Bring Kids Home.
Supporters said it is crucial to build this memorial, as dozens of people come to the site in Suburban Drive daily to pay their respects to Caylee.
Last month, Caylee's mother, Casey Anthony, was acquitted of killing her then 2-year-old daughter after a nationally televised trial. The toddler's remains were found at the site months after she went missing in 2008.
