Jose Baez, the former attorney for Casey Anthony, said he is still haunted by whoever thew the body of her baby, Caylee, in the woods–months after the Florida woman was acquitted of murder charges.

“Regardless of what happened, whoever threw Caylee into those woods like that deserves to rot in hell,” prosecutor Linda Burdick told Baez months after she was acquitted, according to a new boom from Baez called “Presumed Guilty.” She added, “You don’t do that to a baby.”

“I agreed. This fact disturbs me greatly. It’s the one fact that will never change. You don’t do that to a baby. Whoever put Caylee there, I curse you,” Baez wrote, according to the Orlando Sentinel, which obtained a copy of his forthcoming book.

He added that it is “one loose end that really haunts me.”

He later wrote: “According to Casey, George held Caylee’s lifeless body in his arms and, after accusing Casey of being responsible for her death, told Casey he’d ‘take care of it.’ Caylee’s body was found dumped in the woods. That was all I was ever able to uncover about how Caylee ended up where she did.”

Recently, J. Cheney Mason, who was co-counsel to Anthony during the trial, told CNN on Tuesday that she is “still having to live in isolation.”

“She can’t go out in public. There are still morons out there threatening to hurt her, just like there are those from time to time that still threaten me and my family, because we won,” he said. “Casey is resilent though. Any woman that can spend three years in solitary confinement, go through the trial that we did, and survive as she has, you got to say she’s got some good stock in her.”
