Charges Filed Against Missing Toddler`s Mother

Aired August 5, 2008 - 20:00:00 ET


NANCY GRACE, HOST: Breaking news tonight. Police desperately searching for a beautiful little 2-year-old Florida girl, Caylee, after her grandparents report her missing, little Caylee now not seen for six long weeks, last seen with her mother. So why didn`t Mommy call police?

Headlines tonight. In the last hours, felony criminal charges handed down against Caylee`s mother, Casey Anthony facing hard jail time on felony child neglect and lying to investigators, investigators who are trying to find her little girl. As of this hour, the state holding off on murder charges. And even more stunning and disturbing photos emerge of mom, Casey, at a local nightclub after her little 2-year-old girl vanishes.

And tonight: DNA testing reportedly completed on hair and fluid found in Casey`s car trunk. After telling us he never asked for immunity for mom, Casey, in exchange for helping police, defense attorney Baez breaks down and admits that, yes, immunity has been discussed. And does a tip lead police to a heavily wooded area at a local elementary school with cadaver dogs in the search for Caylee?


GRACE: That is grandmother Cindy Anthony responding to the media. Bombshell today. Formal charges handed down against mom, Casey, charges of felony child neglect and misdemeanor, lying to police.

I want to go out to a very special guest joining us tonight, speaking to us for the first interview since formal charges have been filed against Casey Anthony. This is little Caylee`s former babysitter, Holly Gagne. She`s a very dear friend of the Anthony family. Holly, what is your response to these charges?

HOLLY GAGNE, ANTHONY FAMILY FRIEND, BABYSAT FOR CAYLEE: Well, you know, it doesn`t -- it doesn`t sound great when you say it`s a victory that your child`s been charged, you know, with these charges. But I guess they`re looking at it as all the things, the terrible murder charges or the part of her death (ph) -- that they think everyone`s been leading up to and just blatantly saying, they`re just happy that they`re sticking with the obstruction of justice and...

GRACE: Right. So they`re looking for any silver lining whatsoever.

GAGNE: That would be an exact statement.

GRACE: Holly, do they really believe -- Cindy Anthony says Caylee`s going to be home for her birthday this Saturday. Do they really believe that?

GAGNE: I believe they`re hoping that, and I believe they`re speaking just in a positive manner that she`s going to be home. And that`s what we`re all doing.


GRACE: Back to special guest tonight, Holly Gagne, Caylee`s former babysitter. She is speaking out for the first time since the charges have come down. Formal charges handed down today against mom Casey Anthony.

Holly, I can go that scenario that she gave Caylee to someone to keep for a period of time. But why would you sit behind bars and torture your family, torture a public who wants to find the little girl, instead of saying, "I gave her to the babysitter, here`s her number. She`s supposed to be back on x."

What`s the big deal? I don`t understand it. Why would she lie and sit in jail rather than tell the truth if it`s innocent?

HOLLY GAGNE, FMR. BABYSITTER TO CAYLEE, FIRST INTERVIEW SINCE CHARGES CAME DOWN: Why, why, why? Yes, that`s what we`re all saying. You know, there`s rumors or there`s been talk that because she`s trying to protect her there`s something she can`t say, she can`t -- you know, there`s -- there is all this confusion.

And I want to say to you, Nancy, and to the America and -- she is going to have to answer to everybody. I mean, she is going to be held accountable. This girl isn`t just going to get her daughter back tomorrow and, oh, everything is going to be fine.

I want to know why and you want to know why. Our community wants to know why. We`re all, her family -- they were at my home for two hours yesterday. And, I mean, it was heart wrenching. And so she`s got a lot of questions to answer. I mean, I -- that is not being dismissed.

GRACE: But why is she not answering unless there`s something horribly wrong with this scenario?


GRACE: Unless Caylee isn`t dead? I`ll just put it out there. Why isn`t she answering her own mother and father? What`s there -- what could be worse than what she`s doing right now?

GAGNE: OK. She`s saying, you know -- I don`t know all the answers because I`m not there and they`re not able to tell me everything. But they truly believe that she is in danger, that there`s a friend or there`s someone that`s hurting her or she could be hurt and that she feels like if she says this that they would hurt the child.

Nancy, that`s all I can say to you. That`s the only answer I can give you.

GRACE: Well, you know what, I believe you. And just as Marc Klaas said at the get-go, we`re no further along in finding Caylee than we were when she went missing back on June 16, the last time anybody has seen her alive.
