(Newser) – Casey Anthony’s parents are finally speaking out about their daughter’s case in an interview with Dr. Phil McGraw set to air tomorrow and Wednesday, and tidbits are trickling out, People reports. In a clip aired this morning on Today, McGraw asks Cindy Anthony about a post she wrote on MySpace 12 days before Caylee was reported missing that read, prophetically-seeming, "Caylee is missing." But Cindy had no idea Caylee was actually gone that day. She was "missing in my heart," she explains. "She wasn't missing physically. I wanted Casey to know how much she was hurting me. And I thought she was purposely keeping Caylee away from me."

Cindy says she "truthfully" doesn’t know why the trunk of Casey’s car smelled suspicious. "Do I want to believe Caylee was back there?" asks George Anthony. "I don't want to believe it. I'm going by what the investigators have told me." As for questions over whether her husband was aware Caylee was missing: "George would have never have put us through those six months of not knowing where Caylee was if he knew where Caylee was," Cindy says. "I watched his heart break every single day."
