Eight years ago last month, Casey Anthony was acquitted of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter of a child after the death of her daughter, Caylee.
Caylee would have been 14 years old today, Aug. 9, 2019.
Eleven years ago, Casey was arrested in connection with Caylee’s disappearance. On July 15, 2008, Casey’s mother, Cindy, made the now-infamous 911 call to report Caylee was missing and that Casey’s car smelled like a dead body.
The next day, Casey was arrested. She was indicted in October 2008 on a first-degree murder charge. Caylee’s remains were found Dec. 11, 2008 not far from Casey and the grandparents’ home in Orange County, Florida.
Casey’s trial began in 2011, and on July 5 she was found not guilty on all charges except for lying to investigators.
Casey, now 33, lives in South Florida. In 2017, she gave her first interview after her acquittal to the Associated Press, in which she talked about her love for Caylee and showed personal photos of her daughter.
