• Depositions: Doctor became 'sick' over Casey's lies


    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla.,None - Chief Judge Belvin Perry unsealed the state's depositions, involving the story Casey Anthony gave to two doctors for the defense about how her daughter Caylee Marie Anthony died.

    In the documents, Casey told doctors that Caylee was conceived while she was passed out at a party.

    Casey also said her father, George Anthony, was molesting Caylee in a pool as was killing her.

    The depositions reveal Casey's version of what happened to Caylee.

    According to the report, Casey also told the doctors that Caylee could not have died accidentally.

    However, at the murder trial, the defense told the jury the opposite.

    The depositions also detail what Casey called sexual abuse by her brother Lee Anthony and by George.

    One of the psychiatrists said he became physically ill over being used to further what he called Casey's "far-fetched" claims that her father and brother had raped her, and that her father had killed Caylee.

    Maitland psychiatrist Dr. Jeffrey Danziger told prosecutors before the trial that Casey told stories that may not be true. Danziger quoted her as saying, "I think he held her underwater, maybe he was doing something to her and he tried to cover it up." 

    Danziger told prosecutor Jeff Ashton he was sick over being the "vector" for Casey's story, saying, "I am deeply, deeply troubled. And I have lost much sleep, lost weight, and I don't know, I want to do the right thing."  

    The documents said that Casey told Danziger Caylee could not have drowned accidentally because she could swim.

     The defense, however, told the jury a different story. The defense said Caylee's death was an accident, and that George blamed Casey and covered it up.

    "The defense has latitude in what they choose to believe is the truth, but the state does not have that latitude, it is bound by the evidence," said WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer.

    Sheaffer, who is a defense attorney and former prosecutor, said he's never seen anyone more determined or successful as Casey in getting people to believe her lies.

    Sheaffer said Casey's new videos are further proof.

    "I hate being on camera, but I don't know. I need to conquer that fear at some point," Casey said in her video diary.

    "We have a different stage. We have the same actress," Sheaffer said.

    In the depositions, Casey gave the two doctors two different stories about Caylee's father.

    One story was that a mystery man drugged and raped Casey at a party, and the other story was she thought her father could have been Caylee's father, until the FBI's DNA test ruled that out.

    The depositions were never used at Casey's murder trial.

     Casey is serving a year of probation at an undisclosed location in Florida on a check fraud charge. The 25-year-old was acquitted last July of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in a trial that captured the nation's attention.
