ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) -- NOTE: There was a phone call prior to this; however Lee was unable to get reception on his cell phone so Casey called the house phone.

The following is a transcript of the conversation:

Lee Anthony: Hey, Casey. Are you there?

Casey Anthony: Hey. Yeah, I'm here.

Lee: Sorry, my cell phone reception is terrible.

Casey: It sucks at the house. I know.

Lee: I still want you to be able to know that you can -- you can call me, and I'll try to, you know, get as much out there as I can before anything would ever die. It's not, like, a situation, but, you know, what can we do? You know?

Casey: Oh, yeah. Absolutely.

Lee: Um, so you understand what I was trying to say for that -- that you know you can reach out to them?

Casey: Yes.

Lee: And, you know they -- you know, I know that you said that when we did visitation, and you know, I want you to know that you don't have to, necessarily, have to put everything through your attorney if you feel like you wanted to speak to them about anything at all.

Casey: Yeah.

Lee: You can still request that he be there, but you don't, he doesn't have to, and you don't have to do that through him.

Casey: Oh, I know.

Lee: OK.

Casey: That was something we had talked about yesterday, actually.

Lee: OK, good. Um, do you plan on speaking with, you know, any of those guys at all?

Casey: We're going to set up a meeting for, uh, Monday.

Lee: OK.

Casey: Um, Jose [Baez, Casey's lawyer] was going to, you know, think about stuff, how we were going to set things up over the weekend. He was going to be here with me when we bring them in -- um, you know, and as far as what I answer, how I answer, you know, how all of that goes down, he was going to figure that out this weekend. He was actually going to come up either today or tomorrow, and bring, like, a couple of the videos, I guess, for me to watch from some of the news stuff that's been going on, I guess some of the talk shows.

Lee: Hmm, yeah.

Casey: Just to try to update me on stuff. Plus, he wanted me to get a good laugh, so.

Lee: Well, here's the thing: Don't put too much stock and faith into anything the media is putting out there, 'cause you got to understand that --

Casey: Oh, I know.

Lee: They get information, they speculate on information, and then, you know, they put something out there so they can fill their -- their clips.

Casey: Oh, I know. I actually caught a little bit of it. I mean, I only got to see maybe an eighth of the TV, but I could see the pictures and stuff that were coming up last night.

Lee: Yeah.

Casey: Um, I just caught a little bit of that, you know, between the 10 and 11:00 news, so.

Lee: Here's an FYI for you, so you can conduct yourself accordingly.

Casey: Yeah.

Lee: Everything is public record, including this phone call --

Casey: Mm-hmm.

Lee: Including, um, the visitation videos --

Casey: Yes.

Lee: All that stuff is going to end up being released at some point.

Casey: Oh, I know it is.

Lee: I had no knowledge of that whatsoever.

Casey: Jose told me that yesterday.

Lee: He told me that after we got on -- that we did that, so.

Casey: Yeah.

Lee: Um, there's obviously some things that I may have asked in -- that I would have asked in a different way

Casey: Yes, absolutely.

Lee: And I don't want you to, you know, feel for any reason that, you know, we're not on your side about anything, 'cause we are about everything. We're completely behind you, completely behind you. Um, our entire focus, all our days, every second of every day is consumed with "What can we do to find Caylee?"

Casey: Yes. Oh, absolutely.

Lee: So, is there anything? I know we had spoken before, and you understand how all this works now, but -- um, do you have anything that you can, you know, tell me, you know, that would help? Um, you know?

Casey: There's nothing I can think of at the moment. Um, I'm going to actually try to get something together, you know, today, so I can write a couple letters, um --

Lee: OK.

Casey: To the family. I'm even going to get with [inaudible] and stuff, to see if you guys get that directly -- um, but still put out my own, specific -- so if anything happens, if there's any lapse, you still get what I'm trying to put across, to you.

Lee: Right, and just remember that if you give it to the attorney, he can choose whether or not to --

Casey: He can read it, he could choose whether or not -- so he can fix that, which is why he'll do a secondary letter.

Lee: Perfect.

Casey: Just to make sure that it's direct.

Lee: Perfect. That would be -- I would encourage that 110 percent. So, um, is there anything specific? I know you're going to meet with -- um, you know, the investigators and everything, but you know, is there anything, specifically the details, that you want to clarify to me now, so when I'm following up on my own leads and my own information -- putting this stuff together -- you know, that I can start working on it now?

Casey: Um, at the moment there's nothing specific or nothing that, you know, should probably be said here. Um, again, I'll put something together before I see Jose, or when I see Jose, and, you know, make sure I have something also to put out.

Lee: Right.

Casey: So that we can get everything.

Lee: OK, and just remember: When you get to talk to those guys -- um, you know, you mention that, you know, you're going to have your prep and everything with Jose.

Casey: Mmhmm.

Lee: But remember: Truth don't hurt.

Casey: Oh, I know it doesn't.

Lee: So, you know --

Casey: But in the meantime, things that I have told them, again, were misconstrued and not used to their benefit. I gave them the same resources that I gave you, and you found out 100 more things than they did.

Lee: Right.

Casey: And they were given the same information.

Lee: Right.

Casey: So it's just about the approach, I guess, in using the resources to their full extent.

Lee: Right.

Casey: I'm, again, everybody's biggest resource. You've said that. Jose has said that. Mom and Dad have said that.

Lee: Right, but at the same time, we still -- we just need to figure out how we can be clear on, on whatever that we're giving to them. So even if we have to, you know, speak, um, you know very direct, or we have to -- you know, we can't really speak in generalities with them, with anybody, is what I'm finding out.

Casey: Yeah.

Lee: 'Cause, you know, or if we tell them, "I'm not completely sure on a spelling, or I'm not completely sure on this or that."

Casey: Yeah.

Lee: They take everything exactly up front, to the 'T,' exactly how you provide it.

Casey: Yeah.

Lee: So, you know, if it's off at all, they don't even think to look in any other areas, is what --

Casey: That's why I gave them things multiple times. Each officer, I gave the same information at least two or three times. I've done the same thing with you, the same thing with Mom, the same thing with Jose. Everyone has the same information, same spelling, same names. I mean, none of that has altered because, that's it.

Lee: Right. What do you think -- uh, where do you think -- you think Caylee's OK right now?

Casey: My gut feeling? As mom asked me yesterday, and even Jose asked me last night, the psychologist asked me this morning that I met with through the court. Um, in my gut, she's still OK, and it still feels like she's, she's close to home.

Lee: OK.

Casey: So, I mean, that's still my, my best feeling at the moment. Again, if that changes, obviously I'm going to reach out and say something immediately, but I know Mom will understand this better than anyone that there's that type of bond that you have with your kids.

Lee: Right.

Casey: And it's, you know, it's unexplainable. Absolutely.

Lee: Did you speak with Caylee over the phone at any time?

Casey: I did one time, yes, and that was actually the day that Mom had called the police.

Lee: OK, do you remember what time you spoke to her?

Casey: Around noon? It was through a private call.

Lee then gets Casey's cell phone account information from her.

Lee: I know, did you ever have, or did you ever call, uh, the babysitter on your cell phone, or ever receive a call from the babysitter on your cell phone number?

Casey: Um, I most definitely did.

Lee: Can you give me any day or anything, whenever you think may have received that?

Casey: Any specific day, um -- God, a lot of the times, it was through text messages, so the number would show up even on that.

Lee: OK.

Casey: Um, I can't think of any specifics. I mean, my days are all thrown together. At least I know what the day is today, but as far as stuff from the last couple of months, I have -- I have no exact, you know, time or date. If I can think of something.

Lee: Do you remember, do you remember an area code?

Casey: Um, the last number that she called me from was a 954 number, which I believe is a Fort Lauderdale number. I know because Amy's is also the similar area code.

Lee: Right.

Casey: She has also called me from a 407 number, from a 321 number -- there's been different numbers, different times. Not necessarily on different days, but it just depended on the number that she had at the time.

Lee: OK. Most recently, can you remember the number that, you know, you would have seen?

Casey: The last number that she had called me from that wasn't, uh, the private listing, or that didn't show up "private cell" or "private call," was 954.

Lee: OK. Um, but even like a private cell or a private number from the most recent one that you can remember, can you remember, like, what month or anything like that that they were in?

Casey: Um, the last private call that I received was on the 15th, I believe. That was the day that Mom made that call.

Lee: Right.

Casey: And I think that was the last one that I had gotten. I mean as far as my knowing someone on the phone when I last had it.

Lee: Right, and do you remember what area code, or any part of that?

Casey: That was the number that came up. It just said "private cell," or "private call." I can't remember which one.

Lee: OK. But whenever you did get to see a number, you said it would either be a 954, or a 407 or 321.

CASEY: Yeah those are the three area codes that I can think of offhand.

LEE: Do you remember any part of any of those numbers that will help me? Any combination of numbers that will help me?

CASEY: Not at the moment. Iíve been trying to piece together numbers, but the numbers that are coming to mind are numbers from other people that Iíve called frequently and I donít want to give you someone elseís number on accident.

LEE: Nope, thatís fine I completely understand, I understand that in todayís day and age you donít really memorize cell phones since you have it programmed in. Numbers that you program in yourself.

CASEY: Very much so.

LEE: Would she have been programmed in your cell phone?

CASEY: She was, programmed into that other phone that we need to find a way to recover. I mean I donít knowÖ

LEE: Help me with that actually. You said that you referred to it as you Ďblack jackí?

CASEY: Yeah, it was a Black Jack. Iíd only had it for probably a week, a week and half. It didnít keep its charge so thatís why I started using that other phone.

LEE: So on the Black Jack, do you remember the phone number that the Black Jack was associated with?

CASEY: It was my same number; I just swapped the SIM card back and forth.

LEE: Ok, umÖHereís how these things work Casey, the contact information, the contact stuff is on your SIM card, so if you switched it back and forth.

CASEY: It doesnít always save to the SIM card. You can sometimes save things to the SIM card or save it specifically to the phone, it just depends on the way the phoneís set up I thought about that too. The phone that I was currently using, the one I guess that the police still have, or you guys have it, I had set it up after the fact to just save things to my SIM card but you can also save it to just the phone or to the SIM card and the phone so thereís copyís on both

LEE: So this Black Jack where did you, you said that you reported it missing, give me the information so I can find this phone.

CASEY: I had it (TALKING TO SOMEONE OFF THE PHONE : yes sir, is he ok. Can you ask him to stay there couple of minutes, because we only haveÖok thank you). Um Joseís actually here. Um. (Expletive), ok the last time I know I had it for certain I was up at Universal.

LEE: For work, or for otherwise?

I was in through the park talking to just a couple of mutual friends ofÖ.

LEE: So you were up there for fun or whatever?

CASEY: It wasnít necessarily fun, but yes not through work at that momentÖ

LEE: Iíve got you, ok, I understand.

CASEY: I know I had it at Jay Blanchard Park, I donít remember where the very last place is I had it.

LEE: Where did you get this phone from? Like how was it provided to you?

CASEY: Through the AT&T Store, god, what road? Itís the bottom left side of town kind of near where the mall and stuff is.

LEE: Was this a phone, is this another personal cell phone of yours?


LEE: Ok, so tell me. So if you lost the physical phone itself, aside from searching for it, how would you go about finding this? How should I go about finding your phone?

CASEY: I donít know. Thatís the thing. I mean. I knew specifically where it was, I mean my last recollection of me having it was at Universal, but I knew that I had also been at Jay Blanchard Park and I could have potentially had it there with me too. I donít know if you guys have checked through like some of the bags and stuff that I have at the house with me, if it was in one of those purses but I know I kept everything that I had kind of centralized at Tonyís.

LEE: Case, if you had your Black Jack with you and you lost your Black Jack, but you still have your SIM card in your other phone, Iím trying just to figure out why, you wouldnít lose both, you know what I mean?

CASEY: Well thatís the thing, if it fell out of my bag, if it fell out of my pocket. Itís a decent size phone, almost the size of the phone that you have now. It could have easily fallen out of my purse.

LEE: Would you have had her, or anybodyís information, even Jeff thatís introduced you or Juliet that also or correct me is there anybody else that knew that you were searching for Caylee?

CASEY: Outside of them, no.

LEE: Ok, outside Zani, Jeff, and Juliet, nobody else knew correct?

CASEY: I hadnít talked to anyone else about it, no

LEE: Ok, where did you meet Jeff and Juliet from again?

CASEY: Universal.

LEE: When you were working forÖ

CASEY: Jester Kodak. I could have met Juliet when I was working through Kodak I donít remember if thatís where we first met Iíve known her also for about two and half, three years.

LEE: How could we verify her? And get in contact with her? Like where does she, Where does she work and all that stuff? By the way weíve got about a minute left.

CASEY: Ok. She just moved within the last couple of months, Iím trying to figure out where else I can get contact information for her. I know I had her number written down at the house somewhere, where exactly Iím not sure.

LEE: Ok. Did she ever work with you at Kodak or Color Vision?

CASEY: She worked at Universal, yeah.

(Tone: You have one minute left)

LEE: Casey, you got to answer my questions specifically. Did she work with you at Kodak or Color Vision or was she an actual employee of the park?

CASEY: She was an actual employee of the park.

LEE: Ok. And she is Juliette *****. J-U-L-I-E-T-T-E ******. Correct ?


LEE: Got it. Ok.

LEE: I think we are getting close Case, is there anything?

Um, offhand no. Iím going to go talk to Jose now, If I can think of anything while Iím with him Iíll write down anything and do whatever I can.

LEE: Ok, you know you can call me or the house. We love you

CASEY: Alright

LEE: And please think of anything that can help find Caylee, because as soon as we can help find her, itís going to be open and shut to get you out of there, ok darling?

CASEY: Absolutely, I knowÖ.

Tone, recording, call ends.
