Caylee's own mother, Casey Anthony stepped into the national spotlight after the suspicious disappearance of her daughter. As her story unfolded the strange story started to come out, this included a dysfunctional family life, an array of deceptions and criminal conduct.
As the investigation continued and suspicions mounted, Casey became the prime suspect. In October 2008, based on new evidence against Casey—her erratic behavior and lies, her car that showed signs of human decomposition—a grand jury indicted the young single mother. Then, two months later, police found Caylee's remains a quarter of a mile away from her home.
Society believed that Casey was guilty, but the jury, however, felt differently due to evidence considered by them to be circumstantial. Casey was acquitted of the murder charge, but she found herself loathed by the general public.
Did she or didn't she kill Caylee? This is the story of one of the most shocking, confusing, and horrific crimes in modern American history.
That first book, WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER?, was Duncan’s desperate attempt to motivate informants and prevent the facts of Kait’s story from becoming buried. It turned out to accomplish much more than that.
Duncan’s new book, ONE TO THE WOLVES: ON THE TRAIL OF A KILLER, is even more horrifying than its predecessor as new information poured in, the family ran for their lives, and their original suspicions turned out to be the tip of an iceberg so immense that Kait, herself, could not have known how dangerous the information was that she had been sitting on in order to protect a now-estranged boyfriend.
Since Kait didn’t live to reveal it, her mother now does so in a book so intense and yet so painfully human that the reader will never forget it. All of the elements of a suspenseful mystery are here--intrigue, turns and twists, cover-ups, and page-turning action. The sobering fact is that, this time, the story isn’t fiction.
