In a new People Magazine feature, Casey Anthony complains of being bored with her life and living on a shoestring budget 5 years to the month since her controversial acquittal for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. According to various sources, the now 30-year-old lives on financial handouts from her former legal team, an unsuccessful photography business and staged paparazzi photo-ops. She is for the most part eastranged from her family, whom she claimed abused her as part of her defense, and has few friends or romantic opportunities due to her notorious past. “She doesn't really make a lot of friends, for obvious reasons,” the source tells People, adding, “When people find out about her history, they usually bail on her.”
The case of Casey Anthony and the death of her daughter Caylee engrossed and ultimately shocked the nation after the little girl was reported missing by her grandparents on July 15, 2008. Casey told authorities a series of different stories about the events surrounding her daughter’s disappearance leading to her arrest for first degree murder in October, 2008. In December of that year, Caylee’s decomposing body was found in a trash bag in the woods near the Anthony family property. Casey was tried in 2011 and prosecutor’s sought the death penalty. However her legal team mounted a strong defense, clouding the issues with allegations of sexual abuse and “fantasy forensics,” leading to her acquittal on murder and child abuse charges, 5 years ago this month.
