Toys and clothes belonging to Caylee Anthony, the two-year-old whose death in 2008 under suspicious circumstances garnered widespread media attention at the time, was recently sold by her grandparents at a yard sale, much to the ire of a customer, reports said.
The sale was organized two years after Caylee’s mother, Casey, was acquitted of the murder of the two-year-old, whose skeleton was found wrapped in a blanket near her home in Mount Dora, Fla., where she was living with her mother and grandparents, George and Cindy Anthony.
“I simply will never understand how these grandparents can put a price tag on Caylee’s items … I can understand Casey’s things, but I will never understand how they could part with these things at a yard sale!” Florida resident Christina Werner, who picked up toys at the sale, told Radar Online.
The sale included several items believed to be Casey’s, who was nowhere in sight. It is also not sure if the proceeds from the sale would go to Casey, who recently filed for bankruptcy in January.
Casey has largely remained out of the public eye since she was found not guilty in the murder of her daughter. Casey was one of the main suspects in the case, and during the trial, prosecutors alleged that she got rid of Caylee to escape parental duties.
Suspicion on Casey had increased further when it was pointed out that authorities were notified of the toddler’s disappearance by her grandmother, Cindy, who initially claimed that Casey’s car smelled like a dead body had been inside.
Although Casey was acquitted of the murder, she was convicted of four counts of providing false information to authorities investigating the toddler's disappearance, and sentenced to four years in prison. She was released in 2011 after serving her full sentence, three years of which she had spent being imrpisoned while the trial was in progress.
