Casey Anthony is one of the most popular murder trial defendants of the past decade. The focus on Casey’s life started after her mother, Cindy, called the authorities to report that she hadn’t seen her granddaughter Caylee for 31 days and that Casey’s car smelled like there had been a dead body in it. In the eyes of law enforcement, Casey had something to do with her daughter’s disappearance, and they duly charged her with first-degree murder.
Several months later, Caylee’s remains were found in a laundry bag in a wooded area near the Anthony residence. Casey’s trial gripped the nation as the prosecution painted her as a cold-blooded murderer, while the defense portrayed her as a person suffering from the effects of childhood abuse and a victim of an unfortunate circumstance. The not-guilty verdict by the jury faced immense public backlash, but the jury claimed that the prosecution didn’t prove its case.
Casey Anthony runs a private investigation firm in South Florida
After the acquittal, Casey became a legal investigator for Pat McKenna, an investigator who worked on Anthony’s case. It was also reported that Casey and Pat were living together.
As 2020 drew to a close, Casey launched a private investigation firm called Case Research & Consulting Services.
Casey’s infamous trial featured on the first episode of Lifetime Cellmate Secrets. In the series, Anthony’s cellmate, Robyn Adams, states that she believed Casey was innocent. Anthony was in the headlines recently after getting into a yelling match with a woman over an ex-boyfriend. The woman reportedly splashed a drink on Casey, but Anthony refused to file a restraining order or press charges.
Casey laid low for several year after the trial before resurfacing to reveal that she doesn’t plan on having kids
It’s understandable why Casey opted to lay low after her high profile trial. Her life had been picked apart by the media and the general public, and she’d received enough coverage to last her a lifetime. Few saw her in a positive light: To most people, she was a barbaric killer who deserved the death penalty sought by the prosecution.
Casey resurfaced in 2017 to tell her side of the story. She sat down with the Associated Press, but she mostly gave evasive answers to the questioned presented by the interviewer. The interview did little to alter people’s minds about her culpability in Caylee’s murder. One thing that came out clearly, however, was her desire not to bring another child into the world:
“If am blessed enough to have another child – if I’d be dumb enough to bring another kid into this world knowing that there’d be a potential that some jackass, their little snot-nose kid would then say something mean to my kid – I don’t think I could live with that.”
Cindy, Casey’s mom, affirmed during an interview on The Dr. Oz Show that Casey had no plans of having another child on her own. However, she claimed that if Casey found a person to settle down with, kids could come into the equation.
Casey Anthony recently had a run in with the law, but this time it was for a much less serious offence
In January 2020, Casey Anthony found herself on the wrong side of the law again. If she was any other citizen, The New York Post wouldn’t have featured a story about Casey’s speeding violation in West Palm Beach. Casey was nineteen miles an hour above the speed limit, and she pleaded guilty to her crime. Her wild ride in her Ford Escape cost her a $256 fine.
2020 was set to be the year that Casey’s long-awaited film about Caylee’s disappearance came out. The movie titled, As I Was Told, would tell Casey’s side of the story. Unfortunately, the film is still stuck in pre-production due to the coronavirus pandemic, and reports suggest that it will be a low-grade movie. However, Casey suggested that the film would feature sex scenes, and it could influence people to watch the movie if it ever comes out.
The film should include Casey’s life before & after Caylee’s death. The alleged sex scenes would probably come from Casey’s life before Caylee as she was known to have several erotic encounters during her carefree days.
