Rumors Swirling: Is Casey Anthony in Brevard?
FROM FLORIDA TODAY: It’s on Twitter and Facebook. It’s the talk of bars, banks and housing communities. But the latest rumor remains just that, and has left Brevard residents wondering: Has Casey Anthony come to Cape Canaveral?
The rumors seem to have sprung up as early as Nov. 23, prompting long comment strings on Facebook debating Anthony’s trial verdict and alongside seemingly distraught comments including, “I don’t think she’ll last a week,” and “Hide yo kids!!!!”
Anthony was arrested in 2008 and charged in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. She was acquitted of murder in summer 2011 after a trial in Orlando and verdict that drew intense media attention.
According to media reports in September, Anthony had moved out of state. Charles Greene, Anthony’s civil attorney, said he couldn’t confirm whether Anthony was living in Cape Canaveral, saying it was “privileged” information with is client.
The chatter that she moved to Cape Canaveral seems to center on her living at Ocean Woods condominiums, where residents said they’ve heard the same thing but hadn’t seen the near-celebrity.
One woman said: “I hope it’s not true, because it’d be a circus up here.”
Another resident said he’d heard that Anthony moved to Cape Canaveral because it was close to The Green Room Café in Cocoa Beach, one of two Central Florida shops that sells an organic beer Anthony allegedly likes.
Green Room owner Debbie Wright said one customer reported an Anthony sighting weeks ago, but stressed that it was only one report and that Wright wasn’t there at the time. As for the rumor Anthony is coming in for organic beer?
“She’s not drinking much if that’s true,” Wright said with a laugh.
