    A Texas search and rescue organization involved in the search for 2-year-old Caylee Anthony says her mother Casey owes it more than $100,000 in expenses.

    Attorneys for Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery say in recent federal bankruptcy court documents that Casey Anthony knew her daughter was already dead when the search began in 2008.

    Anthony was acquitted of murder in her daughter's death but her attorney said the girl drowned accidentally in a family swimming pool.

    Anthony filed for bankruptcy in January, claiming just $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities. She said she is unemployed.

    Equusearch says Anthony should not be discharged from the $100,000 debt.

    Anthony is awaiting a ruling on whether she can sell rights to her story to repay some debts.
