Casey Anthony, the young mother accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter using duct tape and chloroform, received a not guilty verdict on first-degree murder charges yesterday. And a question arises: Where will Casey Anthony go? The media, which may or may not be the catalyst for her acquittal, asks Will Casey Anthony do porn? and Does she go to a homeless shelter? No one seems to have any answers.
Casey, for obvious reasons, can't go home to her parents George and Cindy Anthony, largely because she accused her father and brother of raping her. Lee Anthony, her brother, and George Anthony have consistently denied these accusations. George and Cindy Anthony told the media that they feel that she is not innocent and left the courtroom seemingly angry yesterday before releasing the following statement: Despite the baseless defense chosen by Casey Anthony, the family believes that the jury made a fair decision based on the evidence.
Anthony was found guilty of four counts of lying to investigators and could receive up to one year in jail for each count. The young woman faced the death penalty. The unprecedented publicity that the trial received may have played a huge role in the nonchalant verdict.
The defense said that Anthony's small child drowned in the family's swimming pool, prompting a cover-up by the family. The defense said that the little girl was murdered by her young mother, who drugged her with chloroform before suffocating her using duct tape. Deleted internet searches were found on Anthony's personal computer for the phrases how to make chloroform and neck-breaking, and self-defense.
Defense attorney Jose Baez, possibly the most hated lawyer in America, said While we're happy for Casey, there are no winners in this case. Caylee has passed on far, far too soon. A coroner ruled Caylee's death a homicide after examining the body.
So where will Casey Anthony go after she is released? One need not be terribly worried as she will likely be able to support herself with the money she receives for telling the media about her tumultuous life.
