Casey Anthony, acquitted of murdering her child in 2011, was forced out of hiding by a bankruptcy hearing at a Tampa, Fla. courthouse on Monday. She was approached by a gaggle of reporters as she entered the courthouse.
Casey Anthony was followed by a group of reporters eager to get a glimpse of the woman who was acquitted in the murder of her 2-year-old daughter in 2011, as she approached a Tampa, Fla. courthouse for a bankruptcy hearing on Monday.
“Did you get away with murder?” one reporter asked repeatedly. Anthony has been unemployed since her acquittal, and legal fees have driven her to file for bankruptcy. She has claimed about $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities.
A reporter asked her whether she would “be better off if you pay your price.”
Anthony did not interact with reporters and quickly got from the car to the courthouse, clutching a floppy, black hat, several hours before her scheduled hearing.
Anthony has not been entirely out of the public eye since her acquittal. She recorded a video journal that was uploaded to YouTube during the winter following her acquittal.
She had just got a new computer, which she celebrated as her own purchase.
“I’m extremely excited I’ll be able to Skype, keep a video log, and have something I can finally call ‘mine,’” says Anthony in the video. She said she had been given a camera, but had paid for the computer herself.
Casey will likely be asked at the bankruptcy hearing to disclose all sources of income—including a rumored book deal, according to the International Business Times.
