(Newser) – Florida mom Casey Anthony has been officially declared a suspect in the disappearance of her 3-year-old daughter, Caylee, CNN reports. Anthony was previously only labeled a "person of interest" in the case of the missing girl, who is believed to be dead. "Casey is a suspect," said a sheriff's department spokesman. "She has been uncooperative, leading investigators down the wrong path." Anthony is currently out on bail on unrelated theft charges.
