Casey Anthony Used Dead Woman's Alias to Access Facebook While in Hiding, Got Baptized (EXCLUSIVE)
Since she was acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter, Caylee, last summer, 25-year-old Casey Anthony has remained almost entirely out of the spotlight, leaving many to wonder what exactly happened to one of America's most controversial figures.
In #LiesLiesLies, Exposing Casey and Surviving the Smear, self-published authors Amelia Noel Sobel and Myrah Nicole Young attempt to recreate what life was like for Casey in the days, weeks and months after her trial, alleging that she spent most of her time in Florida lonely, terrified and shopping online.
One particular passage alleges that Casey used a dead woman's alias -- Melissa McKlintok, who died in Ft. Lauderdale, in September, 2011 -- to access such social media websites as Facebook and Pinterest.
"Casey began spending a lot of time “pinning” things to her board on the site, taking interest in many photographers and comedy pages," the book claims, in a passage obtained exclusively by Celebuzz. "She made it clear she was a Picasso fan; her profile picture was this stylized quote of his: “Every child is an artist. The problem is staying an artist when you grow up."
At one point, Casey, who is now said to be wearing a necklace with Caylee's ashes inside, allegedly posted a note on Facebook, detailing her attempt to get back in the swing of things.
"I’m terrified of getting hurt again. I am terrified of being taken advantage of again. And I am terrified that no matter how hard I try to do the right thing," she wrote last August, according to the book.
"It may never be enough in this lifetime. I’m shooting for eternity, but I’d love to make a difference before that day comes," she continued. "Come what may, I am who I am, and I am who I am becoming. BECOME WHO YOU ARE. Guess it is that simple."
On July 5, 2011, a Florida jury of seven women and five men found Casey not guilty of murdering Caylee, after a little under 11 hours of deliberation. Though her post-trial location was never confirmed, the book alleges that Casey spent some of her time in California, and became isolated in front of the television.
"She was isolated from nearly everyone. She ordered a lot of food to the house and gained a considerable amount of weight," the book claims. "For Casey, her appearance had become a sore subject. Before being arrested she had been thin, tan, and attractive. Three years behind bars had transformed her into the bizarre figure that soon became immortalized in a latex Halloween mask that sold on eBay for close to a million dollars."
It wasn't until she returned to Florida that Casey -- who according to the book has reunited with her mother, Cindy -- decided to change her appearance and take on a new alias, it's claimed.
"As soon as Casey was back in Florida she decided to change her look, changing her hair and pursuing lots of help from online shopping," the book writes. "Casey spent large amounts of time (and money) online shopping for new clothes, accessories, shoes, and sunglasses. She would frequently buy make-up from Sephora and ordered hundreds of ringtones a month. But Casey needed a fake name for all these packages to arrive at the house, she could not, after all, address them to 'Casey Anthony.'"
In addition, the book suggests that Casey recently had a spiritual awakening of sorts, and decided to get baptized to turn her life around.
"In March of 2012 she would undergo a baptism to officially become a Christian again. She wanted her life to be entirely different than it was before and shortly after Caylee’s death. But lying is a hard habit to beat," the book claims.
