Spooky: Lightning Strikes Caylee Anthony Memorial Site Hours After Mother's Sentencing

News

This one's a bit spooky. Just hours after Casey Anthony was sentenced (she'll be released on July 17), lightning struck a tree in Orange County, Florida. While this may seem benign on the surface, the tree that was hit is actually a makeshift memorial for the woman's deceased daughter -- Caylee Anthony. CNN has more:

No one saw lightning strike the pine tree on Suburban Drive in Orange County, Florida, where teddy bears and flowers mark the spot where 2-year-old Caylee's remains were found on December 11, 2008.

But long, diagonal strips of exposed wood scarred the tall pine tree, WESH reported, and bits of bark lay scattered across the road.

"It could be a sign from the angels that they aren't happy with what's happened," a visitor to the site told the Orlando Sentinel newspaper. "The rain, the lightning, the storm – it's the heavens indicating they aren't happy."
