In 2011, reports initially tracked Casey’s whereabouts in various states, including Arizona and California.
What is Casey Anthony doing now?
In her first on-camera interview for Peacock’s ‘Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies’ docuseries, Casey revealed she has been working as a research assistant for Patrick McKenna, the lead investigator of the defense team during her trial, for the past 10 and a half years.
McKenna is based in West Palm Beach, Florida.
What was her crime?
The special comes more than 14 years after Casey was charged with the first-degree murder of her daughter Caylee in October 2008.
The 2022 Peacock docuseries, Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies, was Casey’s first televised interview since she was charged.
Released on Nov. 29, the three-part docuseries followed Casey as she told her side of the story and provided an alternate theory to what happened to Caylee.
The docuseries also featured several of her friends and closest confidantes, as well as key members of her legal team.
The case, which has spanned numerous documentaries and news specials, was one of the most widely-watched criminal trials in history.
According to Nielsen research, an estimated 40 million Americans watched some or all of the trial — and the verdict was viewed by almost 100 million people worldwide.
Who provided home for Casey?
McKenna took Casey in after the trial to provide a safe space and decided to give her a job helping the solo practitioner stay organized.
‘With the approval of my family, I brought her into my house,’ McKenna said on the docuseries.
‘I’m surrounded by filings. My house is a mess. She’s very organized and so I saw she could really help me out. I felt like she needed to do something.’
Casey said she has primarily worked criminal defense cases to pay forward the work of her defense team.
Who is McKenna?
She refers to McKenna as a father figure who allowed her to live in his home rent-free until she figured out her next steps as long as she never took any photos to keep her location private.
The Associated Press reported in 2017 that Casey still lived in McKenna’s home. According to The Messenger, Casey lived with McKenna until 2022 and now lives alone in South Florida.
The Messenger reported that Casey doesn’t go out much and is estranged from her parents.
‘I’ve had really bad social anxiety for the past decade,’ Casey said in the Peacock docuseries. ‘Going to crowded places by myself is not something I feel comfortable doing anymore.’
