The most hated mom in America is turning 32, but she probably won't be celebrating like other people her age. True crime fans are still outraged over the gut-wrenching details of Casey Anthony's infamous 2008 murder. But now that it’s been nearly ten years since the disappearance and death of Casey’s daughter Caylee, Casey is trying to lead a normal life. Keep reading below to find out more about what Casey is up to today.

Where is Casey Anthony today?
As of 2017, Casey was living in South Florida with Patrick McKenna, a private detective who worked as the lead investigator on her case in the 2011 trial in the death of her daughter, two-year-old Caylee. She’s also employed by McKenna, and she helps him with his current cases by doing social media searches and other types of investigative work, according to the Associated Press. McKenna is also known for his work on the O.J. Simpson case, the former NFL star who was charged and later acquitted in the murder of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.
What does Casey do?
Besides working as a researcher, the 32-year-old tried to start her own photography business last year. She started a Twitter account for her company — Case Photography LLC — but the page has not been active since August of last year. It seems like Casey ran the social media profile herself and was flooded with comments about her trial from other users and she decided to stop using the platform.
She made a rare public appearance to take a political stance.
Casey was last spotted in public last February in the crowd outside of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort during an anti-Trump protest. She did not give interviews, but she has said that she disagrees with the president’s views, according to local TV news station WPTV.

She’s trying to live a normal life post-trial.
Last fall, Casey ventured out in her native Florida on multiple occasions — often socializing and drinking with her friends. She used to live a life of seclusion and even though she was free, she still faced judgment from strangers in public. But now, it seems like ten years is enough time for her to shed her image as the most hated mom in America.
"People pretty much leave her alone," a source revealed to People. "She can go out and no one really bothers her."
"Enough time has passed that she’s not as toxic as she used to be," another insider revealed. "She’s going out now and then. She’s got a circle of friends, and guys are paying attention to her again. Guys are even asking her out now."
