-- their daughter's murder trial captivated.
This country for months especially in the final weeks.
Of those -- proceedings now the questions that rippled the -- the whole thing.
-- -- rising about the whole Anthony family really so now Casey Anthony's parents.
Are speaking out about the whole thing for the first time since her quit out.
They sat down with doctor bell and the first part of that interviews an air today.
Here's George and Cindy talking about one of the key parts of that trial the smell.
In the trunk of the car.
What do you now believe the smell was from.
Chase -- to the stand -- now.
To be honest.
-- and believed to Caylee was back there I don't want to believe it I mean I'm going by what.
Investigators have told me all I -- as a -- isn't what this anymore.
I know that.
Do you believe she was in the current.
-- -- -- Joined now by doctor He -- a psychiatrist also a member of the Fox News medical aid team.
And judge outs -- -- as opposed to judge and the judge Alex show He watched every minute of this whole murder trial gentlemen welcome good to have you both here thanks yeah -- I I just think their responses are strange you know I think even -- -- Anthony say and the kid isn't with us anymore judge Alex I think is I had.
Maybe that's just me a what did you think of their reactions to that to that question judge acts.
I just have a problem of the whole interview I mean I understand I would never wanna be put in the position of these parents having your granddaughter murdered.
And having your daughter be the one who -- in my opinion did it all of that is horrible position to be and being subpoenaed to court and forced to testify against her own daughter.
That's difficult enough after the ordeal is over.
Continuing this sought going voluntarily on national television to talk about this.
What has to be a nightmare in any parents life.
I don't get it I just don't understand them and know that you the dysfunctional but still.
Yet very very very odd to me I totally agree with you that they would want to -- man.
Talk about this dark chapter and I think it's weird that they say now -- -- not sure now what we thought the smell was I thought to myself well.
You know yes she was acquitted but I don't know why that would change your mind about what she said at the trial that you believe there was a dead body in the trunk -- keep apple out what do you make of all this.
Well let's keep in mind mark that these people are.
Very peculiar people.
Four when Casey Anthony was 31 weeks pregnant she went to a wedding of her uncle.
Both Cindy and George insisted she was not pregnant.
She they had to be coaxed to take her for pregnancy test.
George is the same man who after picking up the car the -- -- -- it was supposed to be driving around it been towed.
For 31 days He hasn't seen his granddaughter He thinks that car smells like death.
-- He walks around checking for scratches.
And He says the attendant well at least there are no scratches.
And then it argues with the attendance.
Over the price of the towing for and I'll work.
And then you know where it goes after that He goes to work at the movie cinemas.
So if you're talking about two people.
Who are as strange from feelings and created the crucible in which Casey Anthony developed you just madam.
-- -- a look at another piece of this this is this India and let's watch.
In this case.
Say that He was involved.
Not been causing -- The child's death but then events that took place after the could it ever occur to you.
He shouldn't substantial things from me before could you -- again.
No not when it came to his family as far as Casey and Caylee George would never of put us through those.
Six months of not knowing where Caylee was if He knew where Caylee was because I watched his heart break every single day and I watched him.
This frantic -- He was.
-- you know what what was your reaction to that -- -- At all any legal ramifications does this reopen any issues with regard to this case at all.
No absolutely not an Elvis -- haven't heard the interview that statement doesn't I don't know about that let's look at it differently.
Casey Anthony case should be retried no a lot of people -- -- the feds retry or no they can't recharge its done and over with as far as case he's concerned that they Cindy Anthony could be true.
We tried for perjury.
The DA is not gonna charter for perjury but if she were to get on a show like Dr.
Phil or something and say yeah I -- And I do it again for my daughter then -- have no choice but to charter for perjury.
That's about the only way I see anything happening out of this -- just a quick final thought at -- Okay keep in mind this is you listen to Cindy in the future she told investigators illegal interview.
After heard Doug granddaughters body had been found to complain to them that she wasted ten dollars.
At the universal studios' parking lot looking for on July 3 what a waste of money that was.
That's who we're dealing with here.
-- travel thank you very much judge out thank you.
Phil gave money to a foundation that grandparents have put together -- to help other people who are in similar situations with missing children.
I and the money went to that we don't have -- -- on the sort of the that foundation there how that -- is working but that that's the story from actor thousands of first time they have spoken to.
