Caylee was a bright toddler approaching her 3rd birthday. She could already count up to 45 in Spanish and knew her full name. She could also recite nursery rhymes and loved singing, "You Are My Sunshine." Caylee was last seen on Father's Day 2008, although she wasn't reported missing until a month later on July 15. Her disappearance captivated a nation, making months of national media coverage after her mother, Casey, spun a tale full of inconsistencies after she claimed the nanny abducted the toddler. Updates on the missing girl, as well as her mom were reported nightly throughout the Summer and into the Fall on several news outlets. But all leads were proved false over a period of nearly six months, as her mother would be jailed, released and re-jailed on various charges. In October, Casey was indicted for first-degree murder. Although Caylee still had not been located, the forensic evidence was suggesting that she was deceased from the very beginning. On December 11, 2008, the remains of Caylee were found less than a mile from the family home; the coroner ruled the death a homicide but was unable to determine the cause. On July 5, 2011, a jury found Casey Anthony not guilty of murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter. She was convicted of four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to police, and with credit for time served and good behavior, was released from custody on July 17, 2011.
