Where Is Casey Anthony — Once Acquitted Of Her Daughter’s Murder — Now?
More than a decade ago, Casey Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
Casey Anthony is back in the headlines again as Peacock has announced the upcoming release of “Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies,” a limited docuseries on the controversial woman.
Casey became a notorious household name after standing trial in 2011 for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. The toddler's skeletal remains were found near Casey’s family home in Orlando, Florida six months after she vanished.
Investigators revealed to the public that Casey waited a month to report Caylee missing in the summer of 2008. During the 31 days between the time Caylee was last seen alive and the day that Casey's mother, Cindy Anthony, filed a missing person's report, the single mother was photographed dancing at clubs and had the words "Bella Vita" — translating to "beautiful life" in Italian — tattooed on her back.
Almost three years after Caylee went missing, Casey’s trial became a national obsession, with nearly 40 million Americans tuning into at least part of the trial, which saw her own father testify against her.
Casey was ultimately acquitted of the murder — although she was convicted of lying to the police — but she has continued to be a source of controversy. Case in point: the backlash regarding the upcoming docuseries, as reported by Newsweek. The docuseries (which states that Casey has no creative control) will feature "Casey’s personal archives, behind the scenes footage and the defense’s evidence," according to the streaming platform.
As Casey’s name is brought back into the spotlight, folks may be wondering what she’s been doing since she was found not guilty of her daughter’s murder.
Casey previously spoke out in a 2017 interview with the Associated Press, in which she said that she's still not sure how her daughter died. She also told the AP that she doesn't think she'll have another child, as she worries about how they'd be treated by the public.
"If I’d be dumb enough to bring another kid into this world knowing that there’d be a potential that some little snot-nosed kid would then say something mean to my kid — I don’t think I could live with that," she explained.

In 2019, she expressed in a text message interview with the Daily Mail that she wanted to “help wrongfully convicted people,” including convicted murderer and fellow notorious figure Scott Peterson. She said that she decided to devote her energy to this cause instead of appearing on television.
She explained in one text message, "I think I will take time and help people wrongfully convicted… all reality shows are off the list.”
As for her personal life, a source told PEOPLE Magazine in 2019 that Casey was dating and partying again, but had no desire to get married. "That’s not what she’s looking for now," the source said the outlet.
She hasn’t avoided trouble entirely. Last year, according to a police report, Casey, now 36, got into a heated argument with another woman at a Florida bar which allegedly resulted in a drink getting thrown.
