She’s finally talking and there are some that don’t like what she’s saying.

After her trial for alledgedly killing her 2-year old daughter Caylee, Casey Anthony went into an exile of sorts, not talking to family or the media about her life after the “Trial of the Century,” where she was found not guilty in 2010. Casey Anthony’s finally talking and there are some that didn’t like what she had to say, in particular her parents.

According to People Magazine and the Associated Press, Casey Anthony‘s parents George and Cindy say they are “hurt” by a new interview she gave this week, nearly six years after she was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter.

Through their attorney in a statement given to People Magazine, the Anthonys said their daughter was dragging them back to a tragic period in their lives from which they had tried to “move forward.”

The statement in part read, “After years of silence, Casey Anthony has decided to complete an interview and has once again pointed to George Anthony, her father, as a suspect in the disappearance and death of his granddaughter, Caylee.”

“George, who has continued to try and move forward from this tragedy and who was vindicated on multiple occasions, is once again forced to relive the hints, rumors, lies and allegations that are being made by Casey Anthony,” the statement continued. “He has specifically stated that ‘his heart hurts even more now.’”

At best, the relationship with her family is tumultuous and during her murder trial, her attorneys with Jose Baez as lead counsel, accused George of molesting her beginning when she was 8 years old — which he angrily denied on the stand. Casey’s defense team also claimed George helped cover-up Caylee’ death after she accidentally drowned, a theory both George and prosecutors dismissed.

She finally broke her silence with an Associated Press interview, published Tuesday, in which she addressed her daughter’s death for the first time since her acquittal.

Casey was not quoted in the AP’s story accusing her father of anything but she appeared to tie him to the case while defending herself. “Cops believe other cops,” she told the AP. “Cops tend to victimize the victims. … Cops lie to people every day. I’m just one of the unfortunate idiots who admitted they lied. “My dad was a cop, you can read into that what you want to.”

“Everyone has their theories, I don’t know,” she said. Then she added, obliquely, “The last time I saw my daughter, I believed she was alive and was going to be okay and that’s what was told to me.”

While the Anthony family briefly reconciled after her acquittal, the relationship soon fractured again and became strained. According to several sources, Casey has not spoken to her family in more than a year.

A source close to the situation told People “This family has had struggles for a very long time and all of them have processed it in their own way. There is a lot of regret, I think on both sides. I know that George and Cindy have been devastated to lose their daughter in the way that they have. They hope for a reconciliation someday.”

I wouldn’t hold my breath on that or bet any money; in fact, we’re better off if Hell were to actually freeze over. It could happen in our lifetimes or not. While this is not the start that some of us hoped and prayed for, it’s better than nothing. She’s starting to tell her side of the story and that’s good enough for me. Maybe now she’ll open up even more and tell the world what really happen, provided she’s truthful (the KEY word here is TRUTHFUL).

Caylee’s dead. She’s not coming back short of the Second Coming. She can’t tell us who harmed her and why. Those questions have answers that we will NEVER be privy to, because history has sealed that section off. We can guess, speculate and try to understand the Anthonys and the fractured at best relationship.

Casey Anthony was tried and accquited by a jury of her peers. Some think that she should be retried for her daughter’s death. Sorry, the state of Florida got one swing at the plate and missed. It wasn’t a perfect trial by any means and the voir dire in Clearwater got off to a rocky start when a woman in the gallery yelled ‘she did it!” Add to that a pair of attorneys in Jose Baez and Jeff Ashton that didn’t see eye to eye on anything; in fact, Superior Court Judge Belwin Perry told both of them they “couldn’t agree on the time of day.”

Casey Anthony was found not guilty and to even advocate that she should be retried is not only wrong, it’s stupid and violates her rights as a defendant. A re-trail is NOT going to happen… EVER.

So while some of her family members are not liking what she has said, it’s a start for her to tell her side of things, to tell us what happened. Let’s hope that in future interviews that she is fair, balanced…

And truthful.
