Cindy Anthony Testimony Reveals a Mother's Deep Wounds - Yahoo! News"I used pretty much a whole can of Febreze," said Cindy Anthony, continuing her courtroom testimony Tuesday in the capital murder trial of her daughter Casey.
Casey's mother described the efforts she made to remove the odor from the Pontiac Sunfire, which smelled of decomposition even after weeks at an auto impound lot. Cindy and George Anthony were not the first persons to notice the smell of decomposition. Tow truck operator Simon Birch had previously testified he knew "what that smells like."
Cindy Anthony told the court the odor was so strong that it permeated several of the items found in the car. With a mother's concern, Cindy today described how she attempted to remove the odors emanating from the car.
Among the items Cindy Anthony retrieved from the Pontiac Sunfire was Caylee's favorite doll. First using Clorox wipes to clean the doll's face and hands, Cindy felt she needed stronger stuff because the doll's body was soft and had absorbed the odor.
"I sprayed Febreze throughout the car thinking that might help the odor," Cindy explained with tears in her eyes.
It's kind of like that Shakespeare thing: "Out, out, damned spot!"
