Where is Casey Anthony? Amid Threats, Lawyer Urges Public to "Respect the Verdict"

by at . Comments

A little over 24 hours have passed since Casey Anthony's release from an Orlando, Fla., jail, and the accused child murderer's whereabouts are unclear.

Her attorney, Jose Baez, wants to keep it that way - and for the public to chill.

Appearing on Fox News, Baez urged angry citizens to leave Anthony alone and to start "respecting the jury verdict and decisions that the juries make.”

In the wake of numerous death threats, Photoshopped pictures depicting her death, “I Hate Casey Anthony” and “Where is Casey Anthony?” Facebook pages, and a general sense of rage, Baez expressed concern.

"Pundits and media personalities have no right to try to alter the life of any individual because of what they think may or may not have happened," he said.

Good luck trying to convince Nancy Grace of that.

Casey was acquitted July 5 of first-degree murder, manslaughter and aggravated child abuse in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

She received credit for time served - nearly 1,000 days - on convictions of four counts of lying to police, and was released from jail early Sunday.

Baez told Fox News Casey has "certain rights as an individual in this country" as far as writing a book, doing money-making interviews and so on.

"If she decides she wants to speak publicly, she'll make that decision," he said, without elaborating on what his client's future plans may be.

Anthony's whereabouts for her first week of freedom remain a closely guarded secret, known only to a select few as she tries to start a new life.

Sources report that Anthony boarded a plane at the Orlando Executive Airport at about 3:00 a.m. Sunday. The single engine plane reportedly has a connection to a wealthy California attorney who worked on her case.

It’s believed the plane landed in Arizona, but that is unconfirmed.
