(ORLANDO, Fla.) — The Florida home owned by Casey Anthony’s parents, where 2-year-old Caylee Anthony died in 2008, has gone into foreclosure.
NationStar Mortgage LLC filed foreclosure documents against Cindy and George Anthony on Nov. 4.
Mark Lippman, who represents Cindy and George Anthony, stated that he was aware of the suit.
“We know it’s out there, but I haven’t been served yet, so we will see,” Lippman told ABC News Thursday. “We may be able to get it dismissed.”
NationStar Mortgage and their attorney could not be reached for comment.
Casey Anthony and her daughter Caylee lived with Cindy and George Anthony. Caylee’s body was found in a marshy area not too far from the Anthony home, but at her trial her lawyer said that the girl drowned in an above-ground pool in the Anthonys’ backyard and George Anthony helped dispose of the body.
Casey Anthony was acquitted of murder. George Anthony denied being involved in Caylee’s death and no charges were ever filed against him.
This case is one of many financial woes that the Anthony family has faced since the murder trial. In 2010, Bank of America filed a foreclosure complaint against the Anthony couple, although the complaint was dismissed seven months later. Casey Anthony also filed for bankruptcy this year. She is facing several lawsuits as well as huge legal bills.
