Casey Anthony, the Florida woman who was acquitted for killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, was spotted at an anti-Donald Trump protest in West Palm Beach.

She was seen outside his Mar-a-Lago resort on Saturday night, KTNV-TV reported.

Anthony infamously drew headlines for the 2011 case, but she has barely been seen in public since. She lives in the area of the resort, local reports indicate.

According to WPTV, she was spotted wearing a Cleveland Indians hat turned backward. The station reported that she is against some of President Trump’s policies.

The protest, involving hundreds of people, was triggered after Trump signed an executive order more than a week ago that temporarily bars citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States for 90 days.

On Dec. 11, 2008, the remains of Anthony’s 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, were found in a wooded area near the family’s home. The not guilty verdict in Anthony’s case was met with public outrage, and she was attacked in the media.

But in May 2016, a private investigator claimed that Anthony’s attorney admitted she killed the girl and hid her body, Fox News reported. The investigator, Dominic Casey, made the allegation in court documents last year during Anthony’s bankruptcy case.

Her attorney, Jose Baez, hired him after police arrested her in July 2008. Casey said, “Baez had told me that Casey had murdered Caylee and dumped the body somewhere and, he needed all the help he could get to find the body before anyone else did.”

Baez has denied the claims.
