Texas Search Firm Seeks $100K From Casey Anthony
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A Texas search and rescue organization involved in the search for 2-year-old Caylee Anthony says her mother Casey owes it more than $100,000 in expenses.
Attorneys for Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery say in federal bankruptcy court documents that Casey Anthony knew her daughter was already dead when the search began in 2008. Anthony was acquitted of murder, but her attorney said during trial the girl drowned accidentally in a family swimming pool.
Anthony filed for bankruptcy in January, claiming just $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities.
Equusearch says Anthony should not be discharged from the $100,000 debt.
The trustee overseeing Anthony’s bankruptcy on Tuesday withdrew a motion asking that she be allowed to sell rights to her story. A hearing is set for Wednesday in the case.
