Casey Anthony was released from an Orange County prison around 12:09 a.m. Sunday morning, with $537.68 in her pocket, and escorted to a secret location that even her parents didn't know about, The New York Post reported.
Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in a July 5 acquittal that shocked the country. Prosecutors alleged that Anthony suffocated her daughter with duct tape because she craved a carefree life and motherhood hampered that. Caylee's remains were found in December 2008 near the home of Casey's parents.
And despite death threats -- her legal team said on Friday it received an emailed death threat - her attorney, Jose Baez, said She's safe.
Still, her parents are unaware of her whereabouts.
They don't even know where Casey is, Anthony's uncle Chuck Eddy of Canfield, Ohio said today about her parents, George and Cindy Anthony.
Baez also said she had a long road ahead of her.
When Fox News' Geraldo Rivera asked Baez how Anthony was holding up, he said, I'm not a therapist, I'm a lawyer. So those kinds of questions I think are best left up to the mental health professionals.
Casey has been through an incredible, traumatic event, Baez said. We're certainly going to do our best to try to get her in a position where she can help herself and try to move forward in life.
While Anthony's whereabouts were a closely guarded secret, her options as she tries to begin a new life may be limited, as lawsuits are pending against her and she has a criminal record from her lying to police convictions.
Nevertheless, Baez said, people need to start respecting the jury verdict and decisions that the juries make.
Pundits and media personalities have no right to try and alter the life of any individual because what they think may or may not have happened.
