Casey Anthony Surfaces in YouTube Video Diary


The woman acquitted of killing her young daughter in Florida, thus briefly becoming the most hated person in the country, has looked for solace (and/or attention) in the place where being hated is a sort of currency: the Internet. Casey Anthony appears in a newly discovered, strange YouTube video with a blonde bob and glasses, speaking directly into the camera about probation and adopting a dog. She says it’s “just a little surreal how much things have changed since July and how many things haven’t changed,” and rambles about how nice it is to own a computer.

The clip appears to be from October, but showed up yesterday on a YouTube channel that features only two other videos, one of which is about Anthony’s murdered daughter Caylee. This incognito Casey could be a stellar impersonator, although NBC News has seemingly confirmed the veracity of the video diary. “It’s a little scary because I hate being on camera, but I don’t know,” says Anthony, who promises more dispatches. “I need to conquer that fear at some point.” Because she’s shopping a $750,000 television interview.
