In 2008, Casey Anthony was indicted by a grand jury for the first-degree murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
Other charges: aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child, and four counts of providing false information to police.
As stated by ABC News:
Casey Anthony’s legal team opened her defense by admitting that she had lied about a babysitter having stolen her daughter Caylee a month earlier, claiming the child had drowned instead.
She was sentenced to four years for lying, but the murder charge was unsuccessful.
I could write much more, but let’s just say many, many, many people believe she was guilty.
Yet, a jury felt otherwise, and now the South Florida resident is reportedly lookin’ to make more.
Babies, that is.
Someone close to Casey told People magazine she “feels like her biological clock is ticking,” and that she wants to “find some meaning in her life.”
She may have been trying to do that last part for a long while — following her 2011 release from jail, she took to the shelter of the Cross Church of Palm City.
It seems a new phase is now in order.
According to the source, Casey’s no longer the “young girl who everyone saw on trial.” She purportedly now wants “marriage, family, the white picket fence. … In some ways, that’s very appealing to Casey. She’d want things to be less dysfunctional than the family she had growing up, but she likes the idea of stability.”
It’s not the first time the notion’s come up in the press.
In a 2017 article by the AP, Casey expressed her desire to have more children.
But she could “never live with” someone being mean to them:
“If I am blessed enough to have another child — 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.”
It would be true even if the jury was right: Many would say she’s proved she can live with quite a lot.
