Casey Anthony's story about Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez turned out to be every bit as convoluted and every bit as contrived as Verbal Kint's tale about Keyser Soze.
Sometime after midnight on July 16, Detective Yuri Melich asked Casey for Zenaida's telephone number, the woman who had been taking care of Casey's daughter for nearly two years. Casey said she didn't have the number. Melich asked for the phone numbers for Jeff Hopkins and Juliette Lewis, the two former co-workers from Universal with whom Casey had discussed her daughter's kidnapping. Casey said she didn't have those numbers either.
According to Casey, she had lost one of her two cell phones nine days earlier. The phone she lost held numbers the detective was looking for. Neither Jeff nor Juliette lived in Orlando any longer, Casey said. Jeff was upstate in Jacksonville, and Juliette had moved to New York.
