This is a ridiculous book. Take three different authors, with three completely different agendas and try to fit it together. Doesn't work. First, Wendy Murphy's theory that Casey Anthony was pimping out Caylee who was killed by the pedaphile is based on believing Casey's (BELIEVING CASEY????) lie #2 about the nanny in the park - that the "nanny" is really the pedaphile(s) Caylee was pimped out to, that Caylee was taken to punish Casey for being a bad mom and murdered by the pedaphile. Feel like this might be a B movie plot? She backs it up very, very thinly with a friend saying Casey took Caylee somewhere at night (couldn't have been to Cindy's? Or to another friend's? Or choloformed in the trunk? NAAH, must have been a pedaphile for whom there is NO evidence) Well, Wendy says maybe the evidence is sealed. WHAT? So we believe the nanny story, except she's a pedaphile, and that evidence is sealed. Oh yeah, Wendy says the "big Trouble" shirt Caylee was discarded in must have been the pedaphile's - afterall, Cindy never saw it before and Casey said the nanny had clothes for Caylee at her place, so..... OOOPS - there's that little photo of Casey and Caylee in the shirt, they even showed it at the trial - remember Wendy Murphy? Asthonishingly poor job by Wendy Murphy. LAUGHABLE! Absolutely ridiculous theory. GARBAGE! Then there's author #2, Whitfield, the pioneer of the "Inner Child" work in the 60 -70's, great man, great theory, but shames himself by writing in Murphy's trashy book. Rewrite of his other books - even uses the same pictures!!! Do yourself a favor and buy one of his serious books. And then there's author #3, his wife, apparently former hippie chick who writes ala Ram Daas about spirit and loss. Good stuff, but why here?Read more ›
This is a horrible book. I only read the first section and it is so contrary to what is described! If you followed the trial or read any other books on the case, you know how wrong Wendy Murphy is in here assumptions. Begining with the fact that the shirt Caylee was found in was not hers, she didn't even research the fact that there are photos of Caylee in that very shirt. Though she brings up the fact that there are things that are sealed in the case, the book in no way even gets close to the claim that it solves what really happened. The sample doesn't get to the meat of the book so it tricks you into downloading to be very disappointed. DO NOT WASTE your money.

I, too, followed this case from beginning to end. The ridiculous "theories" that Wendy Murphy throws out about what happened to Caylee are not based on the evidence presented in court documents. When Wendy suggested that Casey was prostituting Caylee at night to make a living for herself - she lost all credibility with me! She also suggested that the FBI is involved in an investigation, and devotes more than one chapter to the "mystery" of the POSSIBILITY that numerous pictures and documents continue to be sealed by the court. There is absolutely no facts out there that would support such an absurd notion! The purpose of this book has nothing to do with "What REALLY Happened". DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

The following are just a few of the major misleading issues that appear in this book.
Why would Casey risk a life sentence or capital punishment by not revealing the true identity and details about a nanny?
Why are there no cell phone records, texts, emails, photographs or sightings of her by any of Casey's family and friends? In the absence of any proof of existence of a nanny, it's logical to conclude that there never was one.
Casey sold all of her photos and videos of Caylee to ABC for $200,000. In effect, a TV station paid for this mother's defense.
The "threats" allegedly made to Casey and her family by the nanny are allegations that originate with liars. Cindy, George and Lee all lied on the stand and at varying times throughout their testimonies. The most extreme example of this family's cover-up of Caylee's murder is that Cindy washed Casey's clothes and Caylee's doll found in Casey's trunk as they smelt of decomposition.
According to emails sent to Shirley Plesea (Caylee's great-grandmother) and her son Rick,there was an argument on the evening of 15th June and by the time that Cindy awoke the next morning, both Casey and Caylee were gone, having left before sunrise. Therefore George and Cindy lied about last seeing Caylee on 16th June.
The authors claim that the t-shirt found with Caylee's remains did not belong to Caylee. This is a lie! There is a photo in Jeff Ashton's book clearly showing Caylee seated beside her mother wearing this pink t-shirt with the letters "big trouble comes in small packages".
The authors state that unraveling the mystery of the nanny remains important - but why? Just because Casey was without her child for long periods between 2006 and 2008 does not mean Caylee was with anyone at all.Read more ›
