Blaming the babysitter would be one thing, but these people are making up babysitters. Anyone notice this trend? Mothers and fathers who having been caught leaving their children alone unsupervised point their fingers at Snuffalupucus-esque babysitters. With minimal investigation, the authorities are able to establish that no such sitter ever existed and the parents simply left their children alone.
And now, an allegedly negligent and deeply troubled mother has apparently fingered her imaginary sitter in the disappearance of her 2 year old child. The story which reeked of implausibility from the get go continues to unravel in Orange County, Florida where authorities fear the mother made up the babysitter story as a cover up. The search continues but the biggest obstacle continues to be Caylee's mother, 22-year-old Casey Anthony.The girl's disappearance came to light only after her grandparents contacted authorities, despite the fact that child had been missing 5 weeks. The girl's mother appeared before an Orange County judge Thursday morning.He ordered her held without bond on charges of child neglect and for lying to authorities, saying she was a threat to others.
