If youre going to Caylees funeral, heres what you need to know

There will be security at the First Baptist Church of Orlando , and everyone who attends the funeral service for Caylee Marie Anthony must pass through a metal detector. If you plan on attending the memorial service, here are other details you need to know: Q. Where is the First Baptist Church of Orlando? A. 3000 S. John Young Parkway , which is at the intersection with Interstate-4. Q. Who is allowed to attend? A. The service is open to the public, but the Anthony family is reserving the right to refuse entry to certain people. California bounty hunter Leonard Padilla, who once helped bond Casey Anthony out of jail, is one of those not welcome.

Throngs expected at Caylees memorial

Thousands of people are expected to convene at First Baptist Church of Orlando this morning to attend the public memorial service for Caylee Marie Anthony, the toddler who captured the hearts of people around the world when she was reported missing seven months ago. The service is expected to last about two hours, but few other details have been released. It was unclear Monday afternoon whether Caylees grandparents, George and Cindy Anthony, will speak. It will be a celebration of this childs brief life brief but very special life, said Brad Conway, the lawyer representing the Anthonys. The churchs worship center seats 5,000, and Conway said he expects it to be packed. People from as far as California and New York have told the Orlando Sentinel they plan to attend.
