Mom of Missing Fla. Girl Likely Returning to Jail

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The bounty hunter monitoring the mother of a missing Orlando toddler wants associates to withdraw her bail.

That would force Casey Anthony to return to jail, unless she could otherwise cover the $500,000 bail. Anthony was just freed last Thursday.

Her family said that would help find missing 3-year-old Caylee Anthony, but bounty hunter Leonard Padilla says the 22-year-old mother hasn't cooperated at all. He also says he's gotten so many threats she and others would be safer in jail.

Detectives were meeting with prosecutors Thursday about new FBI lab test results. Authorities have called Casey Anthony the prime suspect in a probable murder case, but so far the highest charge she faces is child neglect. Caylee hasn't been seen since June.

    I THINK SHE SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN RELEASED FROM JAIL. SHE KNOWS WHERE THAT BABY IS SHE IS A SORRY @$$ MOTHER TO DO WHAT EVER SHE DID TO THAT BABY. IF SHE DIDN'T WANT HER SHE COULD HAVE PUT HER UP FOR ADOPTION OR I WOULD SAY LET HER PARENTS TAKE CARE OF HER BUT I BELIEVE THAT THEY KNOW WAY MORE THAN THEY ARE LETTING ON AND THE BROTHER TOO. PUT HER @$$ BACK IN JAIL AND LET HER SIT THERE. WHAT KIND OF MOTHER WOULD WAIT AS LONG AS SHE DID AND THEN REPORT THE BABY AND WHAT KIND OF GRANDPARENTS WOULD NOT KNOW FOR THAT LENGTH OF TIME THAT SHE WAS MISSING MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT CASEYLIVED WITH HER FAMILY. I HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR WHAT HAPPENS TO CASEY SHE DESERVES TO RECEIVE LETHAL INJECTION.
