True crime fans are still outraged over the gut-wrenching details of Casey Anthony‘s infamous murder trial. But now that it’s been over a decade since the disappearance and death of Anthony’s daughter, Caylee Anthony, the 36-year-old is trying to lead a normal life. Keep reading below to find out more about what Anthony is up to today.
Where is Casey Anthony today?
A source told In Touch exclusively in March 2020 that “Casey is writing a detailed and definitive account of her life and the tragedy of losing Caylee and everything that followed.”
At the time, she had already completed three chapters. “She knows the book will be controversial and that no matter what she does she will face criticism, but she also feels she has a story that has never been told. Nobody else has lived it, so no one else can tell it,” the source explained.
What does Casey do?
Besides working as a researcher, Anthony tried to start her own photography business in 2016. She created a Twitter account for her company — Case Photography LLC — but it was soon deleted when she received fewer photo inquiries and more questions about the trial.
In December 2020, Anthony launched a private investigation firm in Florida. Paperwork for a new company titled “Case Research & Consulting Services LLC” was filed with the Florida Division of Corporation under her name on December 14, according to documents obtained by The Daily Mail.
Although some reports have implied that Anthony wants to investigate the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter, a source close to Anthony told People in January 2021 that’s not the case. “That’s a closed chapter in her life,” said the insider. “She’s not starting a company to get answers about Caylee.”
Instead, Anthony wants to help other people who are facing serious legal charges. “She knows what it’s like to be accused of something that she didn’t do,” the source said. “She wants to help other wrongfully accused people, especially women, and help them get justice.”
She’s making a movie about her life.
In June 2019, Anthony announced she was working on a film about her life after the death of Caylee. ”Yes, I drank and carried on like nothing happened. The movie is called As I Was Told because I’d done what I was told to do. I had to put on a fake persona throughout those 31 days,” Anthony said to the Daily Mail about what to expect to see in her movie.
However, the movie “just hasn’t really gotten off the ground,” a source told People in September 2020. “And then the Coronavirus became a thing and stopped any momentum that the film had. It’s effectively dead.”
Casey is dating and partying again.
After years of trying to stay out of the public eye, Anthony was spotted back on the scene for the first time in 2019. “She believes she has done her penance,” a separate source close to Anthony told People. “And now she’s partying. She’s dating around, meeting new people and finally creating a social life.”
Although Anthony was trying to mingle once again, she isn’t ready to “settle down.” Anthony began dating a man a couple of years ago but things fizzled out, the source shared, adding, “That’s not what she’s looking for now.”
Casey wants more kids.
“For a long time she was like ‘no way,'” a third source told People in October 2018 in regards to having more children. “But time has changed that, and she’s now open to it in a way she hasn’t been before.”
However, Casey’s father, George Anthony, expressed that thought made him nervous. “Knowing now that she could potentially be a mom again, I hope she does better this time around than what she did last time.”
Casey’s case still haunts some jurors.
One of the male jurors spoke out about how his decision to acquit Anthony still impacted him 10 years later on May 20, 2021. “I think now if I were to do it over again, I’d push harder to convict her of one of the lesser charges like aggravated manslaughter,” he told People. “At least that. Or child abuse. I didn’t know what the hell I was doing, and I didn’t stand up for what I believed in at the time.”
Where does Casey live?
As of 2017, Anthony 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. 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.
Do Casey’s parents support her?
In a rare interview on Investigation Discovery’s Crime Scene Confidential, Casey’s mother, Cindy Anthony, reunited with an investigator who helped recover the body of her granddaughter.
“I know you guys didn’t want to leave until you found every single [bone],” she told Alina Burroughs in the March 2022 clip. “It means a lot.”
Alina told People, “I didn’t know how Cindy was going to react to me,” she admitted. “I mean, I was a prosecution witness, so she could’ve seen me as someone who wanted to lock her daughter up. But she was very gracious. And I think in some ways, the interview gave her some closure.”
