Casey Anthony to Change Name, Disguise Herself, Upon Release
Showing some semblance of awareness as to her public reputation, Casey Anthony is considering a number of disguises as well as a new name, reports the Chicago Sun-Times, for her release from prison. She might even use a few such disguises, assuming they can be easily employed. It seems that Anthony has been called enough nasty things ranging from "child murderer" to "a Florida sorority girl looking for a quick-and-dirty hookup" to "bad mom" -- despite having been acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee -- for some of it to trickle down.
Anthony, who will live under a pseudonym in a secret location, like she's in a "witness protection-like program," will draw the line, however, at plastic surgery -- though there have been discussions.
It seems as though her expected release from prison this weekend will be a wake-up call of sorts, in any case:
The source added that Anthony "really does not completely understand the depth of hatred out there. She's fully aware of the various death threats, of course, but she thinks that's isolated to relatively few nutcases."
She's getting out of jail, but the punishment of Casey Anthony may have only just begun. Book deals not withstanding.
