From: Orlando Sentinel – 1-11-2012 :::
“Chief Judge Belvin Perry has unsealed two never-before-seen depositions from doctors who conducted psychological evaluations on Casey Anthony before her murder trial last spring.
The documents are significant because they represent the most recent version of Casey Anthony’s story about what happened to her daughter.
The depositions are from Dr. Jeffrey Danziger and Dr. William Weitz. The Orlando Sentinel is reviewing the documents now and will regularly update this story.
Both Danziger and Weitz were originally listed as defense witnesses before Casey Anthony’s trial started last May. But the defense later withdrew the mental health experts as witnesses, and neither doctor ended up testifying during the trial.
However, portions of the story they said Casey Anthony told them ended up being a part of defense attorney Jose Baez’s shocking opening statement to jurors.
In his bombshell opening, Baez told the jury that Caylee Marie drowned in the family pool in mid-June 2008. He also said that George Anthony knew of the drowning and blamed his daughter for the child’s death. Finally, Baez also claimed that Casey Anthony had been sexually abused by her father.
Those claims made in the infamous Baez opening were never substantiated at trial.
However, the substance of the Baez opening matched — to some extent — the accounts relayed during the Weitz and Danziger depositions.
Retired Anthony prosecutor Jeff Ashton relayed some of what Weitz and Danziger talked about in his book about the case, “Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony.”
Ashton said he based his writings on his recollection and his notes, not the sealed depositions themselves.
According to the book:
Danziger said that Anthony told him she “believed that her father drowned Caylee deliberately or drowned her while he was molesting her, even though she had no evidence that George [Anthony] had ever molested Caylee in the past.”
Weitz, referring to the account Casey Anthony gave him, gave a similar version of events. He indicated Casey Anthony asserted “that Caylee could not have died by accident and that George had murdered her,” according to the book.
Casey Anthony said her father yelled at her, “It’s your fault. It’s your fault. You’re a bad mother,” according to the Weitz version.
Although the jury never heard these accounts, Casey Anthony, 25, was acquitted of the most serious charges against her, including first-degree murder, in the 2008 death of her daughter.”
