Casey Anthony inmate pen pal, Robyn Adams, talks about friend in deposition
Orlando, Fla. – Robyn Adams, the woman with whom Casey Anthony shared jailhouse correspondence and an inmate friendship, spoke about her first meeing with Casey and their ongoing relationship in a deposition released Friday.
Casey is behind bars in the Orange County Jail, charged with the first-degree murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony, in the summer of 2008.
Adams was in the same area of the jail as Casey for six months in late 2008 and early 2009. Adams is currently serving a 10-year sentence in Tallahassee on drug charges.
In a deposition, she describes her first encounter with the Florida mother accused of murder, saying “Everyone was hollering these horrible things at her, name calling and just spitting on the window when she would walk by… And she just turned around and looked at me, and I just waved.”
After that first meeting, Casey initiated contact with Adams, and their friendship developed from there.
“Casey and I did talk way back when about writing a book. We’ve talked about doing a lot of things together,” said Adams. “She wanted to write a book just about this situation.”
She also noted that Casey told her about the nanny, Zenaida Gonzalez, that Casey initially accused of kidnapping Caylee.
“At first she told me that she dropped Caylee off at the babysitter’s in an apartment complex in Orlando,” said Adams. “However, towards the end of our stay, once we started to progress with our relationship, our communication, that changed.”
Adams claims that Casey later said Zenaida had nothing to do with Caylee disappearing. In addition, Adams described Casey’s condition the night she learned Caylee’s remains had been found in a wooded area near the Anthony family home on Dec. 11, 2008.
“She was in rare form. Her eyes were bloodshot. She had been… She was hysterical. She was a mess. She was a mess,” said Adam.
When she was asked by Casey’s attorney, Jose Baez, how Casey has affected her life, Adams said “…very positively… She has a good heart.”
She said she had no ulterior motives in becoming friends with Casey and only did so because everyone else was mean to her. Nonetheless, she did tell Casey’s defense team that if she was given a chance to reduce her sentence by relaying information to the prosecution about Casey, she would take it.
Adams said, “…if the opportunity is there. I would be stupid not to.”
