Witness Tampering Alleged in Casey Anthony Trial

by at . Comments

The Casey Anthony verdict was handed down over a week ago, but the case is far from over. The latest development? Alleged witness tampering.

The Orange County, Fla., Sheriff's Dept. says it is investigating allegations of witness tampering in the high-profile trial that ended in an acquittal.

Authorities wouldn't name the witness, but said it was not Casey's mother, Cindy Anthony, whose stunning testimony bolstered the defense.


Detective John Allen said that several people have already been interviewed in the investigation into the alleged tampering, which is ongoing.

"In regards to where we will go, it really depends on what information we get and what people come forward to provide information," he said.

Anthony, who was found not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, was convicted on four counts of lying to law enforcement.

However, due to the extensive time she spent behind bars awaiting trial for Caylee's murder, she is scheduled for release from jail Sunday.
