Casey Anthony Jail Cheerful – Casey Anthony told a psychiatrist that she got pregnant with Caylee at a party after passing out when was 18 years old, according to depositions her doctor in which the doctor said there was no indication that she was mentally ill.
The 25-year-old was acquitted of murder charges in July of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, with a jury’s outcome that shocked the nation. The murder trial captured the nation’s attention and more so after the verdict was read.
There were psychiatrists involved – Dr. Jeffery Danzinger and Dr. William Weitz – both gave depositions in Apr. 2011, just months prior to Casey’s murder trial for the death of Caylee.
Anthony said she didn’t know who fathered Caylee, the psychiatrist, Jeff Danziger, recounted in a deposition that was unsealed by a Florida judge and released Wednesday. Danziger interviewed Anthony five times over two years but never testified at her murder trial.
“Two beers, possibly given another drug. Woke up passed out,” said Danziger, reading from notes he took during an interview with Anthony in November 2010. “Don’t remember anything at a party, age 18. This is how she said she got pregnant.”
The psychiatrist also said that Anthony seemed happy, cheerful, while in jail. The idea that she was facing murder charges, which could give her a death sentence or life in prison, stunned the doctor.
“You would expect that would provoke some measure of distress, whether someone genuinely did it, whether someone was falsely accused,” Danziger said. “If my child was missing and I was in jail being accused of it, I probably wouldn’t eat and wouldn’t be cheerful and wouldn’t be able to read.”
Anthony is serving a year of probation at an undisclosed location in Florida on a check fraud charge.
