Casey Anthony is planning to cooperate in a documentary on her life about the events surrounding the death of her 2-year-old daughter, 14 years ago, according to news outlets.
“She’s waited almost 14 years to really talk deeply about her experience,” the source says. “She’s now getting ready to tell her truth. She feels like it’s time.”
Anthony, now 36, was arrested in 2008 for the disappearance. For nearly six months, countless volunteers conducted a nationwide search for the toddler, following up on hundreds of leads.
That December, Caylee’s remains were found in a wooded area near the family home.
She was charged with first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter of a child. In 2011, Anthony was acquitted of both charges but convicted of four counts of lying to police.
Her trial captured national attention with at least 40 million people watching at least some of the testimony.
Anthony has only spoken out once about the case. She gave an interview to The Associated Press in 2017, but it was not on camera. At the time, Anthony acknowledged that the public didn’t like her. However, she didn’t care.
“Based off what was in the media, I understand the reasons people feel about me. I understand why people have the opinions that they do,” said Anthony.
“I don’t give a s— about what anyone thinks about me, I never will,” she later remarked. “I’m OK with myself, I sleep pretty good at night.”
According to the outlet, Anthony lives in the South Florida home of Patrick McKenna, a private detective who was the lead investigator on her defense team. She also works for him, doing online social media searches and other investigative work.
It’s unclear whether Anthony has already sat down for the interview. A release date hasn’t been set yet. It is believed that the sit-down will air on a major streaming service.
