Creepy Gift From Casey Anthony's Mom Is Supposed to Keep Caylee With Her Forever

casey anthony mug shotIt's almost a sweet story. You may remember that Casey Anthony and her mother, Cindy, reconciled about a year ago. She continued defending Casey even after the trial. And recently Cindy sent her daughter a sentimental gift: A necklace with Caylee's ashes.


Okay, let's try that again, but this time I'll be a little more mature about it: Cindy sent Casey a necklace containing Caylee's ashes. A source tells People Cindy wears an identical necklace and that "Casey told me it was the way the Anthony women would be together forever." (ZOIKS! Hyperventilating.) Nope, still totally freaked out by this news.


I know, I know -- Casey had her day in court. Actually, she had her many, many days in court. And she was found not guilty. And it's time for us to all move on.

But it's still super creepy. And the sad thing is, on just about any other bereaved mom, it would be understandable. It's just one more way to keep your child close to you after their passing. Maybe it's a little macabre, but it's sweet, too. But with Casey it will just be a daily reminder of ... can I even finish that sentence? Even if you believe Casey wasn't in any way responsible for her daughter's death, those ashes are a symbol of the whole torrid experience, the trial and everything.

For a mother who actually did kill her daughter, that necklace would be a tortuous reminder of your horrible deeds. That is, unless the mother were in total denial about what she'd done. Either way, it's a strange detail to learn about the Anthony women. In one way or another, they will be together forever.

What do you think of Casey and Cindy's ashes necklaces?
