April Whelan may yet play an 11th role in the murder case, after it emerged that she was in the prison cell adjacent to the one time party mom and her case bears striking similarities to Anthony's claims.
Whelan's 15-month-old son Isiah tragically drowned in their home swimming pool on Christmas Day 2007, where he had been left unattended by adults according to Orange County cops.
His tiny body was found by his grandfather. The scenario is almost exactly the same as her defense team's opening statements, that Casey Anthony's father George found two-year-old Caylee's body in the family pool and got Casey to participate in a cover-up of the accidental death.
Orange County Jail spokesman Allen Moore told The Orlando Sentinel that Whelan, 30, spent five days in a cell in the same dormitory as Anthony in June 2009.
