Orlando, Fla. – Forensic psychiatrist, Dr. Keith Ablow, has written a new book about Casey Anthony – the Florida mother who many believe killed her own daughter, Caylee Anthony, 2. In the book entitled ‘Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony,’ Ablow theorizes that much of Casey’s psychological issues are due to her parents, George and Cindy Anthony.
He spoke with the Orlando Sentinel on Dec. 21, 2011, saying he offered to treat Casey privately at no charge, but the offer was declined.
“She needs very competent psychiatric care,” he told the Sentinel during a phone interview.
Ablow added that the third parties he contacted to make his offer of treatment knew he was publishing a book about Casey and apparently implied he should write another in collaboration with Casey.
“I’m not interested in a for-profit project disguised as help,” he said, adding, “My hope is that she finds someone very talented to work with in a very pure way that has nothing to do with money, because she needs the help.”
Casey’s daughter Caylee was reported missing by Casey’s mother in the summer of 2008. The girl’s lifeless body was found in December of that year in a wooded area near the Anthony family home. During Casey’s 2011 murder trial, prosecutors claimed she rendered the girl helpless using chloroform and then suffocated her with duct tape, later dumping her body in the woods. Casey’s legal team, however, countered by arguing that no one was murdered and that the child died accidentally by drowning in the family’s backyard pool.
Casey walked out of jail a free woman on July 17, 2011, following her July 5 acquittal, and has kept a low profile since then. She is currently on probation for a Jan. 2010 check fraud conviction.
