Casey Anthony told doctors who interviewed her in prison that she got pregnant with Caylee when she passed out at a party in 2004. She told one psychiatrist that she suspected her drink had been spiked, reports the Orlando Sentinel. "Two beers, possibly given another drug. Woke up passed out," said a second psychiatrist, reading from his notes, according to newly released depositions. (The AP has that quote.) "Don't remember anything at a party, age 18. This is how she said she got pregnant."

The depositions also include Anthony's claim that she initially suspected her own dad might have been Caylee's father and later, her killer. (DNA tests disproved the former.) "It is the perception of Casey that her father had something to do with the death of her daughter," said one of the psychiatrists. "It's clear that she believes that George either harmed and/or took the life of (Caylee)." The Sentinel adds this caveat: "Hanging over both depositions was the concern—and suspicion—that Casey Anthony was just telling a new set of lies to her mental health experts."
