*The above is an excerpt from OCSO documents.

**Notice that the metadata shows this document to have been originally authored by CMANTHON of the GENTIVA Corporation AKA, CINDY ANTHONY.

Notice it was first written/created by Cindy Anthony on July 2nd 2008 at 10:42 am.  This is the day before Cindy posted her “My Caylee Is Missing” blog on her MySpace account.

NOTICE that, although they show the actual Metadata Analysis for every other suspicious photo or documents they found, as far as “Casey” and “bobby” go, they DO NOT go out of their way to show the same for this “Diary Of Days” document authored by “CMANTHON Of Gentiva Corporation”.

Why did they leave this important info. out of that report?

About 10 minutes later this document finds itself in the “bobby” account documents at 10:51 am.

So, tell me, how did a document authored by Cindy Anthony of Gentiva Corporations end up in this “bobby” account?

I thought about the fact that the laptop Casey used, on her 31 day excursion, actually belonged to Cindy.  This led me to wonder if this laptop had been issued to Cindy via Gentiva, or if it was a work-based laptop.  BUT, I found that might not be possible when I searched and found this little tid-bit:

“When asked if Cindy could work from home on her laptop, Polisano stated that Gentiva’s system blocked remote access of work records.”

Correct me if I’m wrong, but the above info. would make having a work laptop kind of useless if one is “blocked” from accessing work records from outside of the work-place.  Agreed?  In other words, that would help us figure that this infamous “Diary Of Days” document was created AT the Gentiva Corporation office. Yes?  And if it was created at Cindy’s work-place under Cindy’s work log-in info., then it was also, most likely, written by Cindy— or someone playing around at her work station.

So, what?  Was Casey at Cindy’s office on July 2nd, writing poetry on Mom’s computer?  Possibly, but I doubt it.  The reason for my doubt is the fact that it was found under “bobby” 10 minutes later…

I recall, somewhere among the doc dumps, that Cindy spoke of her love for writing and poetry.  I believe Cindy may have written this poem and emailed it to Casey who, in turn, saved it into her “bobby/ docs”.  (What’s with the “bobby”, anyway??)

It is July 3rd, the next day, when Cindy posts her “My Caylee” blog in her MySpace page.

Casey then “responds”, on July 7th, with Cindy’s own poem, “Diary Of Days”, and the big question we should be asking is, “WHY?”

What was Casey trying to say to her mom?

It is also important to note that the fact that it was CINDY, and NOT CASEY, who authored this poem, changes the way it should be perceived.  Don’t you think?

Any ideas?

 Metadata describes other data. It provides information about a certain item’s content. For example, an image may include metadata that describes how large the picture is, the color depth, the image resolution, when the image was created, and other data. A text document’s metadata may contain information about how long the document is, who the author is, when the document was written, and a short summary of the document.”
