ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Is Casey Anthony in Columbus, Ohio? No, Casey Anthony is more likely in Youngstown, Austintown or Canfield, Ohio today. Casey Anthony arrived in Columbus, Ohio this morning. But don’t expect her to be found there. Casey Anthony’s new home and location is more likely Youngstown, Austintown or Canfield. Why is Casey Anthony in Ohio, and why are these three cities the most likely spots for her new home since release from jail?
Columbus, Ohio is roughly three hours southwest of where Casey Anthony might be staying. But this morning, on a private chartered plane, Casey Anthony flew from Orlando to Columbus, Ohio, as reported earlier. Why is Casey in Ohio? Casey was born in Ohio, her family is still in Ohio, including her aunt and uncle Kathy and Charles C. Eddy Jr. But those family members don’t live in Columbus. Rather their homes and businesses are north east.
Anthony’s Ohio relatives have not remained out of the media’s spotlight. They have spoken to local NBC and other news affiliates in recent weeks. They expressed their love and support for both Casey, Caylee, George and Cindy. But were they involved in today’s flight as detailed earlier here and here?
The plane which transported Casey from Orlando to Columbus allegedly is owned by a person in the automotive business in Columbus. Anthony’s uncle, Chuck Eddy (aka Charles C Eddy Jr), is Region III Vice Chairman of NADA (the National Automobile Dealership Association). He is also on the Board of Directors of NADA representing Ohio.
The Tribune Chronicle of Warren Ohio on July 18 indicated that Casey Anthony’s uncle and aunt Kathy and Chuck Eddy are residents of Canfield, not Columbus. That mention was listed in an engagement notice published in the local news for the August wedding of Shannon Christine Sears and Charles Clifford Eddy III. George and Cindy Anthony were also married in Ohio.
The Anthony family also has connections to Austintown and Youngstown. Both cities house dealerships own by the Eddy family (Austintown Chrysler Dodge Jeep, and Bob and Eddy Chrysler Jeep Fiat of Youngstown).
Jose Baez is reportedly not with Casey Anthony. Cheney Mason’s office was used as the means to switch vehicles for Anthony this morning. After her release from jail, she was taken in an SUV to Mason’s office. The vehicle entered his building but didn’t leave. Local news had anticipated that Anthony would depart from Orlando Executive Airport. Shortly thereafter, the plane, chartered from Columbus, took flight and headed back to Ohio.
Legal and media analysts expect Casey to not exactly remain out of public eye in the coming days. Many were surprised that her believed whereabouts were determined less than four hours after her departure from Orlando. But media analysts expect Anthony to issue a brief statement to news in the upcoming days. Her slated deposition for next week has been rescheduled to October.
UPDATE: Chuck Eddy tells news “Casey is not staying with us.. I haven’t heard from Casey and I don’t know where she is.”
