Leonard Padilla, who hosts a TV show called "Bounty Hunters" on National Geographic, told Local 6 News that he has been talking to Casey Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, about bailing his client out of jail. Leonard Padilla told Local 6 News that his nephew, Tony Padilla, a bail agent, is traveling to Texas and has made arrangements with a company to secure the entire $500,000 bond. Leonard Padilla said he is bailing Casey Anthony out to find out the truth about Caylee. The bail-bond company, Tony Padilla Bail Bonds CA" is affiliated with Texas-based Financial Surety, which is licensed in Florida -- making it legal for the West Coast company to put up funds for Anthony's release. Anthony's lead attorney, Jos Baez, and a third party contacted the company about arranging a bond, Padilla said. Baez could not be reached for comment Friday.
"We eat in the same room, sleep in the same room. After awhile, these people feel better than sitting in a cell looking at the walls and they will discuss things that they won't discuss with parents or anybody else," Leonard Padilla said. Leonard Padilla said he and Casey could stay at her parents' house, but he said he hasn't talked to George or Cindy Anthony. Leonard Padilla also said a home at an undisclosed location in Oralndo could be an option.
The Padillas announced the move (or is that movie) in an e-mail to Local 6 News Orlando. The e-mail stated: "On Sunday, August 17, World Famous Bounty Hunter Leonard Padilla and his nephew Tony Padilla, owner of Tony Padilla Bail Bonds of Sacramento, CA., will be traveling to Orlando with two of Leonard Padilla's associates. Tony Padilla will be posting a $500,000.00 bond for the release of Casey Anthony."
Anthony Family Appoints Spokesman; Also on Friday, the family of Caylee Anthony appointed a spokesman known for his work on other high-profile cases. Larry Garrison will now be answering questions from the media, Cindy Anthony said. Larry Garrison, president of production company Silver Creek Entertainment, co-authored a book on the disappearance of missing Alabama teenager Natalie Holloway. Garrison was also a spokesman for the family of John Mark Karr, the man who gained notoriety for falsely confessing to the murder of Jon Benet Ramsey.
Sheriff: Kidnapping Theory Not Credible; Meanwhile, the Orange County sheriff said there is no credible evidence to support a contention by the family of Caylee that the child was kidnapped. "Right now, I don't think there is any credible information on the kidnapping theory," Sheriff Kevin Beary said. "If it is accidental, then I need to know that and people with credible information need to come back and tell me that." Beary said Casey Anthony needs to talk with deputies.
An interview with a former roommate of Casey Anthony's boyfriend shed some light on how the woman acted while her daughter was missing and before her mother called the authorities. A man named Clint House -- a former roommate of Casey Anthony's boyfriend, Tony Lazarro -- spoke to Fox News about the woman's demeanor. "Between June 16 and July 1 when you moved out, was Casey still coming to see Tony and spending the night?" Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren said. "Yes, it became more frequent and being almost every single night she was staying there," House said.
"Do you remember that week, right after Father's Day?" Van Susteren asked. "Anything unusual that week?" "Nothing unusual besides the fact that Caylee was never there anymore," House said. "We always asked where Caylee is at, (and she'd say) 'Oh, she's with the grandparents or she's at the beach with the nanny. That didn't strike me as unusual at the time. Other than that, nothing." House continued to say that at a certain point Casey Anthony stopped mentioning Caylee even when they asked about her.
He said looking back at the events, some of Anthony's behavior is troubling.
"Wouldn't you be surprised if someone who was hanging out with you and your friends, all of the sudden her daughter is missing and she is out partying?" House said. House said Casey Anthony claimed she went to work every day and that she was going back to school. He said she told him the child's father was on the way to Caylee's birthday party and was killed in a car crash but added that he had no way of knowing whether or not she was lying.
