Casey Anthony Can't Hide From the Person Who Scares Her Most

There's the Casey Anthony we all saw in the news during her torrid trial for the murder of her daughter, Caylee. And then there's the Casey Anthony who went into hiding immediately after the trial. What has she been doing since her acquittal?

Self-published authors Amelia Noel Sobel and Myrah Nicole Young have attempted to answer that question in their book, #LiesLiesLies, Exposing Casey and Surviving the Smear. Yes, that's a hash tag in the title, not a typo. And yes, it's filled with bizarre disclosures we hope are mostly, um, #lies. But what it all adds up to is a portrait of a young woman who is dying to erase her past and start over with a new identity. And that's not hard to believe.

Let's start with the dead woman: No, not another murder. Casey needed an alias so she could post on Facebook and Pinterest. So she assumed the name of a dead woman. A recently dead woman: Melissa McKlintok, who died just last September in Ft. Lauderdale. So that's not at all creepy.

(Oh Casey's big on Pinterest. Not that there's anything wrong with that. We at The Stir love Pinterest! Pinterest goooood.)

The authors allege that Casey spent "large amounts of time (and money)" shopping online for clothes, makeup, and sunglasses. Supposedly she needed an alias for the package deliveries as well. They say she ordered "hundreds of ringtones a month," which is just crazy. Who was even calling her?

And the biggest makeover: Casey was baptized. "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."

Harsh! (Also, I think you mean "break.") But you have to admit, if Casey were really trying to break from her past and reinvent herself, she was making mostly superficial changes. We all know where the most profound changes need to come from -- within. If the story of Casey becoming baptized is true, I hope it's a sign that she's truly digging deep in her self-transformation. According to the authors, this is what Casey said in August:

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. Come what may, I am who I am, and I am who I am becoming. BECOME WHO YOU ARE. Guess it is that simple.

But if Casey really did murder her child, all the makeup and baptisms in the world can't fix that.

What do you think Casey Anthony's life has been like since the trial?

If she really does feel bad for either killing her daughter or was an accomplice to the killing then her life should be a living hell! Only problem is that i doubt that she REALLY IS REMORSEFUL!

It's sad that someone can get famous for something like this. I've always thought she was guilty & I still do. If my daughter was missing there's no way I could be out partying or enjoy life at all. Kaylee was such a beautiful little girl & I hope who ever hurt her suffers just like she had to. :(

I can't even stand the looks of the evil thing. It doesn't deserve to be breathing! I couldn't read the story because it doesn't state the devil is dead!!! :( someday justice will be served for the little angle the devil murdered! I hope she burns and lives a nightmare of a life until death does us apart!
