4 AL: Yes.
5 EE: And possibly the first night she stayed over you said ...
6 Al: Yes, if I can ....
7 EE: ... at your apartment?

9 EE: Okay, and there's two incidents where she ran out of gas. And one you went and
10 got a can from the backyard. But you're not sure what date that was?
11 Al: Yes.

13 AL: Uh-hum (affirmative).
14 EE: ... through the 28th, you're not sure what day that week ....
15 Al: Uh~hum (affirmative).
16 EE: But you went to the AmScot on Goldenrod and picked her up?
17 AL: Yes.
18 EE: She left her white car there and she told you what?
19 AL: She said that she ran out of gas. And while I was pulling up to make a U-turn at
20 the light she was already out of her car and waiting for me to pick her up. I just
21 pulled into the parking lot and she just said that she just ran out of gas and that
22 she'd take care of it later. Because she knew that I had, I was busy with schooL
23 EE: And she stayed over there the night before?
24 AL: She stayed over the night before, yes.
25 EE: Did she stay over most of this week?

Lazaro, Anthony/Case #08-069208/GG

1 AL: I would have to say (sighs), yeah (affirmative). I, I'm pr ... I'm pretty sure. She, I
2 know that at least she stayed over the uhm, (sighs).
3 EE: Hmm.
4 AL: I mean whenever, whenever I picked her up the night before the AmScot is, was
5 the night she definitely stayed over.
6 EE: Why do you, why does that stand out to you in your mind?
7 AL: Because that morning she uhm, she left my place as she said she was coming
8 back. And that day that hap ... well whatever that day happened uhm, that's when
9 I got a call to come pick her up, that she ran out of gas. I asked she well where
10 she was and she said that she ran out of gas at the corner and that somebody
11 helped her push her car into the AmScot. So then I went and picked her up.
12 EE: No child that night before?
13 AL: No child with her at all. She had some grocerIes and uh, some clothes.
14 EE: Where were the groceries from?
15 AL: Uh, they weren't actually groceries from the store. It was from her house. She
16 had some freezer pops and like some Tyson chicken, or something to make for
17 dinner that night.
18 EE: From Grandma's house?
19 AL: Yeah (affirmative). Because it wasn't in any bags. Uh, it just looked like normal,
20 plastic bags.
21 EE: So the last time you saw her car every was at the AmScot on that date, one of
22 those dates of this week?
23 AL: Uh-hum (affirmative).
24 EE: And you know that she took items out of there, freezer pops, Tyson's chicken, in
25 normal shopping bags, but it looked like it came from her, her mother's house?

Lazaro, Anthony/Case #08-069208/GG

1 AL: Yes.
2 EE: Anything else that stands out in your mind about that?
3 AL: N... no. Like I said, the only other thing she had with her were like I guess just a
4 couple change of clothes. Uhm, and that's about it. And ....
5 EE: You said she told you later that dad picked the car up from AmScot?
6 AL: She told me, while I was in New York I asked her about her car. Uh, and she
7 said that her father picked up the car and to take it to either a mechanic or to a
8 dealership to get it fixed.
9 EE: Now you, she stayed with you the, most of this week, the 22nd through the 28th?
10 AL: Yes.
11 EE: You said there was Target bags. It looked like she'd been doing some shopping
12 at Target?
13 AL: Yup (affirmative). Ever since, every, uh, when I'd get back from school uhm,
14 she'd either have, she would either be just show, uh, she'd be having these uh,
15 Target bags, or uhm, well actually, hold on. She uhm, I would have to say that
16 happened when she had actual access to a vehicle. So that would be uhm, she
17 one time I allowed her to use my vehicle to go to Target uhm, before I went
18 away. It would be sometime this week. She was gone for like no more than
19 twenty minutes and she went to the, she came back with Target bags with
20 groceries.
21 EE: Well, and she had your Jeep?
22 AL: Yes.
23 EE: Now this Friday you said you took Casey to the club you believed.

5 AL: Yup (affirmative). And we didn't, we just stayed at my house and just relaxed
6 before I had to leave because I had to pack and uhm ...
7 EE: No phone calls from babysitters?
8 AL: Nope (negative). Like I said before, every time she'd talk on the phone she was
9 pretty, not secretive about it, but you know.
10 EE: Any conversation about her child at all?
11 AL: No.
12 EE: You guys were needling her any more about where's the baby?
13 AL: Uh, not, not as much as I was like a couple of times before.

2 AL: Yup (affirmative).
3 EE: Okay, so she drives you to the airport you said?
4 AL: Uh-hum (affirmative).
5 EE: (Sighs.) Drops you off. And you talked to her over the phone that next week?
6 AL: Yeah (affirmative).
7 EE: And that's during that week you said you may stay up there and she acted like
8 she was real upset about that?
9 AL: Yeah (affirmative). She would, you know, uh, I would just kid around with her
10 saying, "Oh, yeah (affirmative), 1'm going to have to probably get a job." Because
11 my uhm, because obviously I don't have, I'm not working because of going to
12 school. So I'd have to you know, work to get money, to save up some more
13 money before I came back down.
14 EE: Did she talk about coming up there and staying with you?
15 AL: Uh, she never talked about coming up there .. She always said that she wanted to
16 go up to New York again and bring Caylee up to New York, but not staying with
17 me.
18 EE: And you fly in on, on the 5th. She meets you at the airport with the Jeep?
19 AL: Uh-hum (affirmative).
20 EE: Late afternoon?
21 AL: Oh, yeah (affirmative). Uhm, she picked me up from the Jeep, I would say late
22 afternoon, say uh, early evening, and uhm, the Jeep, she just I guess uh, the
23 only thing she had with her was a CD that she bought for me. And uhm, my, she
24 just stopped at a car wash, washing my car. Later then pointed out the car wash
25 on Semoran between uh, on the way back from the airport. I don't remember

Lazaro, Anthony/Case #08-069208/GG

1 what car wash, but I could point it out It would be on uhm, would you say
2 heading towards the airport is westbound?
3 EE: Southbound.
4 AL: Southbound? Well I'm saying on the (unintelligible) side of, of Semoran.
5 EE: Oh.
6 AL: If you were heading southbound on Semoran.
7 EE: If you make a left you'd be going eastbound. A right would be westbound.
8 AL: Okay, so it would be ea ... the, it would be eastbound because it was on the left.
9 EE: You don't remember what road you turned off onto?
10 AL: No, no, no, It was on, it's off of, it's right on Semoran. It's on a corner.
11 EE: Okay.
12 AL: It was either at a gas station or uhm, it, I know if it was a corporate gas station or
13 a corporate uh, car wash then I would recognize it. But it looked like it was some
14 local place that she pointed out on the way back home. Then uh, we went back.
15 We stopped at a Winn-Dixie to pick up some groceries for my apartment since I'd
16 been away. And then uh, my roommate had a later flight, so I think like, it was
17 like three hours Jater. So I had to go back up to the airport and pfck up uh, my
18 roommate.
19 EE: Okay.
20 AL: And then ...
21 EE: She lived there with you you say from that point on really?
22 AL: Oh, oh, I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. Oh, my God. I'm getting m ... days mixed up.

13 having I think driving Amy's car. Uhm ....

18 AL: ... sedan.
19 EE: ... taking the checkbook?
20 AL: Uh, the checkbook? I found out uhm, the 5th, the night of the 15th when uh,
21 Casey actually was at my apartment and her mother and Amy showed up to my
22 house. They left and I have no idea. So I looked up Amy's phone in Casey's
23 phone and gave her a call. And she notified me to check my bank account and
24 everybody else in my apartment to check their bank account because that she
25 took money from her.

Lazaro, Anthony/Case #08-069208/GG

1 EE: Did, did Casey take any money from you?
2 AL: No, she did not.
3 EE: Now when they come to the house when they confront Amy in front of you how
4 does that go down?
5 AL: They didn't confront, Amy wasn't there.
6 EE: She wasn't? What did, what, what did, how'd that conversation go down
7 between mom and Amy and you?
8 AL: I had, oh, no I, I didn't have that conversation with the uh, at, at all. Actually what
9 happened was I was just sitting there with my roommate uh, Nathan. We were
10 plaYing video games and she, and Casey was sitting there at the couch also, on
11 the laptop. And then all of a sudden uhm, there was a knock on the door and I
12 said, "Come in." And there was Amy just standing there with a miserable face
13 and we were, we were both 1ooked confused. And then Casey then proceeded
14 to go outside and was, me and my roommate went back to playing video games.
15 Uhm then I would say about a half hour later uhm, Casey and her mother,
16 Cynthia Anthony, came to the door, Casey stormed in and looked like she was in
17 tears. Uhm, and her mom said, "Get your things. Let, you're, you're coming with
18 me." And Casey said, "No, I'm coming back." She said, "Okay, but I'm coming
19 back." And she goes, "No, get all your things." And then uh, the grandmother
20 said uh, made a comment to me while I was sitting on the couch, because she
21 was waiting at the door and I said, uh, yeah (affirmative), hello, you know,
22 because I never, I've seen pictures of the woman, but I never met her. So I was
23 saying, you know, being friendly. Like you know, "Hello. You can come in." Like
24 because she was waiting at the door. And uhm, she came in and she goes, "I
25 hope you're rich because Casey's going to take all your money and leave you

Lazaro, Anthony/Case #08-069208/GG

1 high and dry." And me and my roommate were just looking at her like, like,
2 what? What? I have no, what are, what are you talking about? Like because I
3 had no idea about uh, her with I guess the money. I guess the whole situation
4 with the mother, Amy and Casey were about the money situation. Uhm, I guess
5 that's what they talked about because that's why I guess Amy was there with the
6 grandmother. Uhm, but uh, so that happened. She said that and then Casey
7 said, "Shut up," and they, she stormed outside and the grandmother followed her.
8 And ....
9 EE: The grandmother ever mention the child at that point?
10 AL: No. That was well she made a, she said, she yelled at Casey, made that
11 comment to me, and they both walked out the door. Then I was in the dark for
12 about I don't know, two hours. And I figured, it was around eight o'clock, a little
13 bit after eight o'clock because I remember I started watching the All Star game.
14 And I was you know, worried. And I gave, I went to go text Casey and then
15 realized, because her phone went off, that her phone was still at my place. So I
16 checked her phone to find Amy's number because I saw Amy there. And I said,
17 and I called up Amy to find out what was, just to go what was going on between
18 the two. And I guess the three of them were, I thought it was just between the
19 mom and Casey. And then she then told me that she uh, took money from her
20 through her checkbook.
21 EE: Did Any ever mention the baby being missing ....
22 AL: Uh ....
23 EE: ... at that time?
24 AL: Not at that time. I then received a call after that, maybe twenty to, twenty
25 minutes to a half an hour from an unknown number that in, I mean it wasn't, it

Lazaro, Anthony/Case #08-069208/GG

1 didn't show up unknown, but it showed up a 407 number. And uh, it was uh,
2 Casey's brother, Lee. He addressed himself uhm, introduced himself on the
3 phone and told me what was going on. How she admitted to him that she didn't
4 know where Caylee was and that she hasn't seen Caylee for thirty-one days.
5 And after that everything went downhill.
6 EE: And you haven't seen Casey face-to-face since?
7 AL: I haven't seen her since the altercation she had with her mother at my apartment.
