Investigation Discovery’s new docuseries, Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery, will run Sunday, April 10 through Tuesday, April 13, at 10pm ET/PT on ID.
The show reexamines the death of 2-year-old Caylee Anthony, and her mother, Casey Anthony’s, ensuing murder trial.
In the three-part miniseries, audiences will learn about the web of lies Case spun to the police after her daughter had been missing for 31 days, and will learn more about her volatile relationship with her parents.
Cindy Anthony, Caylee’s grandmother, reported her granddaughter missing on July 15, 2008. Casey was arrested just one day later, and charged with child neglect. She told police that she’d last left Caylee with her nanny, Zenaida “Zanny” Fernandez Gonzalez, and that when she returned later that evening to pick her up, both Caylee and the nanny were missing. On September 25, Fernandez-Gonzalez came forward saying that she had never met Casey or any of the Anthony’s, and filed a defamation lawsuit against Casey. Just two months later, human remains found near the Anthony home were confirmed as Caylee’s, and she was pronounced dead. After a trial that lasted a month and a half, Casey Anthony was ultimately found not guilty of murdering her two-year-old daughter.
This past year has witnessed a resurgence of interest in many high-profile cases, like that of OJ Simpson, JonBenet Ramsey, and Amanda Knox. Henry Schleiff, the group president of ID said because JonBenét: An American Murder Mystery resulted in the networks’s highest ratings to date when it aired in September, ID will be covering similar kinds of stories this year. Speaking of Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery, Schleiff said, “It’s shocking that we don’t have closure on how and why Caylee Anthony was killed,” he continued. “Now, with the benefit of time, our viewers want to understand what happened and uncover the truth.”
