Photographers spotted Casey Anthony in the parking lot of an entertainment resort hotel in Orlando on Sunday,
Rare Sighting of Casey Anthony
Anthony, who was dressed in black shorts, a gray T-shirt, and a black baseball cap, and was loading a piece of luggage and a duffle bag into the trunk of a sedan, shouted at photographers to “back the f**k off” and hurled a finger gesture.
The sighting is a rare public appearance for Anthony, who in 2011 was found not guilty of murdering her two-year-old daughter, Caylee.
Caylee was reported missing on July 15, 2008, nearly a month after she was last seen alive on June 16. Her decomposed remains were found wrapped in a blanket inside a laundry bag in a wooded area near the family’s home in Orlando, Florida, five months later, in December 2008.
Although Caylee’s death was ruled a homicide, the cause of death was listed as undetermined.
Anthony’s Daughter, Caylee and the Murder Trial
Anthony was charged with Caylee’s murder and went to trial in May 2011. During the high-profile trial, the prosecution alleged Anthony wished to free herself from parental responsibilities and murdered her daughter by administering chloroform and applying duct tape.
However, the defense team argued that the toddler had accidentally drowned in the family’s swimming pool on June 16, 2008, and that Anthony’s father, George, disposed of the body.
Following a six-week trial, Anthony was acquitted of murder on July 5, 2011, but was convicted of four counts of providing false information to law enforcement. At the time, Anthony lied to detectives, telling them her daughter had been kidnapped by a nanny on June 9 and was trying to find her, but she was too frightened to alert the authorities.
More than a decade after her daughter’s death, Anthony broke her silence last November, alleging her dad was to blame. In an interview with Peacock, Anthony suggested her father staged Caylee’s drowning to cover up that he may have been abusing the little one.
Casey Blames Her Boyfriend For Caylee’s Death
George Anthony has denied wrongdoing and denied knowing Caylee drowned in the family pool. He also said he had nothing to do with the disposal of Caylee’s body.
Anthony has recently been seen in public for a rare sighting, but remains out of the public eye for the most part. She continues to live in the Orlando area, and has not spoken publicly about her daughter’s death since her 2011 acquittal.
