Reports Say Casey Anthony Is Headed To Texas

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Casey Anthony, the Florida mom acquitted last week of killing her two-year-old daughter, is said to be moving to Texas.

The Huffington Post reports that when Anthony is released from jail, which a source says could happen this weekend she will be staying with an aunt in Houston.

Already someone has created a “Keep Casey Anthony out of Houston” Facebook page.

Anthony’s legal team says the 25-year-old woman has become the subject of death threats and that security will likely be tight wherever she goes.

While Casey Anthony was acquitted of her daughter Caylee’s murder she was found guilty on four charges of lying to law enforcement officers.

    Street justice takes over when the system fails. Plain and simple.

    She won’t last a second in Texas, she will be begging for prison.

  5. Robyn says:

    Does she know guns are legal here and more people than not have at least one?

  6. ZZ Toppings says:

    That is one hot psycho. Still, I hope she dies a slow, painful death.

  7. TRISHA KAY says:

    well i hate to tell casey,but TEXAS has it’s own form of justice.and I GUARANTEE TEXANS will not put up with her for long.if she had been tried for murder here she would be sitting on death row right now.and TEXAS has the highest number of executions in the UNITED STATES.

    It’s time to put this girl and her family on ignore (unless more charges can be filed). And if she feels she needs protection, it should be provided at her cost, not the tax payer’s.

    1. 2sister says:

      More charges can’t be filed, because of the double jeopardy rule.

      1. RussP says:

        It’s a legal technicality but she could face new charges, just nothing she was already tried for. It’s why Darlie Routier was only charged for one child’s murder; if something fell through, they could still try her for the other child. In Casey’s case, I’m not sure what they could use since they tried to throw the book at her and missed by a mile. She also could face civil charges like OJ but I don’t know who would file them since no one in the family seems to speak for the child.

      2. Legal Eagle says:

        Wrong. More charges of the same kind cannot be filed.

      3. 2sister says:

        Russ, she can’t be tried for any kind crime that the U. S. Supreme Court would consider a similar charge. I also believe that they can’t retry her on a lesser murder charge. If they did, it would most likely be thrown out. Also, she did face other charges, but just not ones related to murder. The only other thing that they might get her on is neglect, but that would probably be hard to prove.

      4. Legal Eagle says:

        2sister: You are way off. Similar charges are acceptable, lesser charges are also acceptable, as the criteria for such are different. With all due respect, don’t talk about the law if you don’t have experience or schooling in it.

      5. 2sister says:

        It’s my understanding that she can’t be retried for the same or a substantially similar charge. Would you clarify what is meant by a similar charge? I would think that she couldn’t face another murder charge for the same offense which is what I was thinking about when I wrote my comment. I mean were they given the option of finding her guilty on a lesser murder charge? If they were, did they also say she wasn’t guilty of those charges? I know she could be charged with another crime related to the same offense, but where do the draw the line?

    what a shame there is so much hate for one person. How does what Casey do or live effect your life directly and who are any of you to make such threatening comments, check your own backyards before you spew such vileness. Geez, people get a life…if any hate needs to be directed it is to the prosecutors that couldn’t even bring forth any shred of evidence to reflect Casey being guilt. No DNA on the duck tape..really come on now…I am sure all of you have done things in your life and covered your tracks to not be cought or convicted or found guilty so just move on with your negative energy and quit being haters. What would make you a better person by all the comments of TX having their own ways to handle things..really the prisons are full of ignorant inmates who thought the same thing.

    1. Highland Park Snob says:

      Standing up for the Rule of Law: I just checked my own backyard. No bodies. By the way, it’s DUCT tape, and GUILTY – not guilt, you illiterate, uneducated simple-minded RUBE. Now go back to eating your short ribs and washing it down with grape drink – all from us taxpayers’ pockets. Loser.

    2. 2sister says:

      I don’t agree with the hateful comments, but It’s okay to disapprove of the actions that she was proven to have done..

      I agree that nobody is perfect, but that still doesn’t make what she did right.

      I think people should just move on with their lives, because her guilt has been decided. Whether or not we think she is guilty, is beside the point. Also, we need to have compassion on people and hope that they change anything that is wrong in their lives.

      1. 2sister says:

        I mean whether she was guilty or not has been decided.

    3. pb says:

      I think the majority of people have not admitted to duct taping their dead child’s face, crammed them in a plastic bag and throwing them in the woods for the animals to eat. Where is your outrage?

  10. 2sister says:

    I don’t approve of what she did. I don’t know if she murdered her daughter or if the death was an accident that she covered up. If her daughter accidentally died, then she should have reported it immediately instead of lying about it. She definitely shouldn’t have reported her missing. The problem was that the DA apparently didn’t have enough evidence of how Caylee died. All they could apparently prove was that the mother lied, that Caylee died, and that someone buried Caylee’s body. By the time they found the body they apparently couldn’t prove how she died or least that the death wasn’t an accident. The mother claimed that she accidentally drowned. I guess they couldn’t prove that her injuries couldn’t have occurred that way.

    Also, vengeful attitudes are understandable, but wrong. It is never right to take the law into your own hands. We don’t need a lynch mob mentality in this country.

    I dont know much about this cse because i dont watch the news but i think that what ever this woman has done GOD will deal with her n his own way. We r not supposed to Judge what anybody does. In the bible it says if u judge u shall be judged. So i think that GOD will be doing the Judging.

    And nobody needs to take the law n their own hands. But yes Hanging people n TX but only for horse stealing.

  12. NiteNurse says:

    Anyone who believes Casey is coming to Texas can call me because I want to sell them the London Bridge as well. It’s a ploy to keep the public from looking for her in the real place she is going to. Besides she’s a party girl and won’t lay low or keep her mouth shut for very long. My bet is we will know exactly where she is within 90 days after jail.

  13. NiteWatering says:

    See her pretty picture smiling in the courtroom while on trail for the death of her child accidental or not? See her party while people are looking for her child while she knew it was dead? Yes she cried when it came for the sake of herself, but drove around with the body in her car enough to make the car stink. Ex-cop hubby knew how to cover up a crime, definately knew there was no need to cover up an accident. Let me guess she either held her head under water, was on drugs and didn’t watch the child or asleep not watching the child after a party night. No problem she is innocent and now out amoung us with 1 well known fact, she is a cold blooded witch (drove with dead child.
    What next, DWI in Texas that kills someone? No she won’t be found innocent here. If her aunt loves her she better not bring her here or move to a state people do get away with murder or so-called accidents in.

    How is she not serving more time for the felony theft charges?
