On 7 January 2009 at 1330, Annie Downing was ordered to appear under subpoena at the
State Attorney’s office. She arrived with her attorney Warren Lindsay. Assistant state
Attorney Linda Drane-Burdick was present while Corporal Edwards and Melich recorded
interview with Annie regarding this case. (Here is what is from the supplemental report
in a nut shell)
Annie has known Casey since 10th grade. From the end of 2006-Aug 2007 she

Annie also said that she never knew of Casey doing illegal drugs and that she did give a

below. Annie read the log and acknowledged that “Casey O Marie” is Casey’s screen
name however Annie denied ever providing Casey with any Xanax. And the statement
below is untrue.
Annie heard the name Zenaida for the first time on 5 July 2008 when she saw her at the
Buffalo Wild Wings with a bunch of friends. Annie also stated that her dad had seen
Casey at a liquor store without Caylee…
Annie first learned that Caylee was missing was when she r
