Caylee Anthony’s Grandparents Selling Her Clothes + Toys At Yard Sale – Is This Okay? [Video]
It's been almost five years since little Caylee Anthony disappeared from her mother's home, and it's nearly two years since Casey Anthony was acquitted in the matter of her daughters death. I understand the Anthony family's need to move past these tragedies, but this seems morally wrong to me. See if you agree.
Beautiful little Caylee Anthony disappeared under mysterious circumstances during the summer of 2008. During the search for her body, the criminal investigation, and Casey Anthony's murder trial, we got to peek inside the entire Anthony family dynamic. Is it me, or did things not look all that wholesome and normal with this family?
Christina Werner maintains that she spent almost two hours with the elder Anthonys, and left their yard sale with a Tigger bag, several teddy bears, a Winnie-the-Pooh backpack and toy heart lockets that she believes belonged to Caylee.
Even though she purchased the items, Christina is surprised that they were for sale in the first place. She told Radar Online "I simply will never understand how these grandparents can put a price tag on Caylee's items. You would think if they are trying to just move on and get over things they would donate the items, not throw them on a table with a neon two dollar yard sale sticker." Christina Werner managed to capture some of her dealings with the Anthonys in the video below.
I can't help but feel the same way. George and Cindy Anthony must surely feel the need to put Caylee's tragic death and Casey's acquittal behind them....but to sell Caylee's treasured toys and belongings at a yard sale, for everyone to paw through and haggle over? That just seems cold and calculated to the mother in me. Instead of tacky neon price stickers at a yard sale, why not just donate the clothes quietly and anonymously to a children's charity, and then move on with privacy and dignity? That seems to be a better way to honor poor little Caylee's short life.
What do you think of Caylee Anthony's belongings being for sale in the yard sale? What do you think the grandparents should have done with their granddaughter's things, given the tragic circumstances? As always, share your thoughts in the comments section below.
