BIZARRE: Dad of Tot Mom Casey Anthony, George Anthony Goes Missing, Later Found … ‘Wanted to End His Life’

Posted in: Bizarre,Casey Anthony,Caylee Anthony,Crime,Missing Persons,WTF

Has the pressure, lies, deceit, guilt and Casey’s despicable act become too much for a George_anthony2grandparent to bare? Why would George Anthony want to end his life?

Just when you thought you had seen it all in the case of murdered Caylee Anthony and indicted tot mom Casey Anthony. After months under the microscope and the pressure cooker, George Anthony, the grandfather of murdered Caylee Anthony appears to have cracked. Yesterday, George Anthony failed to show at a family meeting with their attorney. Of all things possible, Orange County Sheriff’s Office reported that George was missing. Police would track cell phone pings to locate George Anthony. Anthony had sent text messages to his family that said, “he wanted to end his life”.

Daytona Beach Police Chief Michael Chitwood said George sent text messages to his family that he wanted to end his life. Chitwood said George told him that there was a lot of pressure on him and he needed to think.

George was Baker Acted, or involuntarily taken to Halifax Hospital where he is being evaluated. At this time, George has not been admitted as a patient at the hospital. He was personally driven to the hospital by the police chief.


George Anthony was taken into custody on Thursday after being earlier reported missing. Detectives found George Anthony at the Hawaiian Inn Hotel in Daytona Beach at 2:30 a.m. ET Friday. He was taken into custody under Florida’s Baker Act for a psych evaluation.

Timeline and what transpired with George Anthony’s disappearance.

The exit question is, why would George Anthony feel the need to not want to go on? Just yesterday in another document dump, it was shown that Casey Anthony joked about drugging Caylee to get her to sleep. How much does George Anthony know and has guilt finally gotten to him?

UPDATE I: George Anthony Remains Under Psychiatric Evaluation; Grandfather Text Messaged That He Wants To Be With Caylee

Investigators said the eight-page note indicated George Anthony was at the end of his rope, and that once he was gone, his family would have a better life. He wrote about how strong his daughter, Casey Anthony, is and said he doesn’t believe she hurt her daughter, Caylee.

However, he did make dark, veiled references to his daughter’s friends.

George Anthony also wrote in the letter that his wife, Cindy, could do better than him. He also wrote about his son, Lee Anthony.

UPDATE II: ‘The Worst Situation You Can Imagine’

Actually the worst situation one could imagine is living with the guilt of of knowing who killed your grand daughter and doing nothing to provide justice for Caylee.

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, you and I discussed last week when — when we were down in Orlando, I mean, sort of how complicated this is for the lawyer because you’ve — on the one hand, you’ve got to do the legal business, but there’s so many collateral issues, including the pain of these grandparents, who have not been accused of doing anything wrong to that grandchild. It’s a terrible situation for them, isn’t it.

CONWAY: It is the worst situation that you can imagine. And they are doing the best that they can. But you know, try to put yourself in shoes like this, and you just can’t. You just cannot imagine a situation where your only daughter is charged with the murder — first-degree murder of your only granddaughter. And they raised and took care of Caylee Marie as though she was their own.
