Caylee Anthony has been missing since June 9, 2008, finally after all the lies and mounting evidence pointing in the direction of the missing three year old mother, Casey Anthony is officially named a suspect by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
Casey Anthony is the first — and so far only — person to be called a suspect in her daughter Caylee’s disappearance, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office told WESH 2 News on Wednesday.
She is the only one who can lead investigators to the truth about what happened to Caylee, who has been missing for 79 days, an agency spokesman said.
Until now, investigators did not call Casey Anthony a suspect, usually calling her a “person of interest.”

Nancy Grace Discusses the official naming of Casey Anthony as a Suspect
GRACE: To famed forensic scientist Dr. Lawrence Kobilinsky from John Jay College of Criminal Justice. He is a member of the Casey Anthony defense team. Well, your client has been named a suspect, a formal suspect, the only formal suspect in the disappearance of 3-year-old Caylee. We`re not talking about a bad check, Koby (ph). What say you?
LARRY KOBILINSKY, FORENSIC SCIENTIST: Well, I think that there`s a lot of evidence raising a lot of issues about the disappearance of this 3- year-old. I think there`s physical evidence. There`s accumulating information that she has not been truthful with the police. And so this is a very challenging case for the defense. There`s no doubt about that. And obviously, I think that people are expecting the charges to be — to be brought fairly soon.

“Casey is a suspect,” said Orange County Sheriff’s Department Capt. Angelo Nieves. “She has been uncooperative, leading investigators down the wrong path and lying to them. She has not provided any credible information about the last time she saw her or where she was left.”
It is hardly a shock that Casey Anthony has gone from a “person of interest” to now being called a suspect in the disappearance of Caylee Anthony. It is now only a matter of time before there is an indictment. All signs and evidence have pointed toward Casey Anthony including the all too numerous fabricated stories, lies and DNA evidence
But Capt. Angelo Nieves of the sheriff’s office said Casey Anthony is a suspect because of the evidence the agency has received from the FBI indicating there was a high probability that Caylee’s body was in her mother’s trunk. He also said she has repeatedly lied to investigators.
“Well, she was the last person to person to see her daughter, and we are continuing to follow up on this information, and granted she would be a suspect,” Nieves said.
