Since she was accused of murdering her daughter in 2011, Casey Anthony has remained a tabloid-cover staple for more than a decade. Now she’s speaking out and telling her side of the story in a Peacock documentary titled “Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies.”
Anthony’s 2-year-old daughter Caylee was reported missing by her grandmother on July 15, 2008, and was later found dead in the woods near their family home, per The New York Times. Photos of her partying in the weeks following Caylee’s death emerged, and she was soon charged with murder, manslaughter, and child abuse. However, her defense team later argued that Caylee had drowned in a pool and Casey had failed to report her death for fear of a murder charge, and Anthony was found not guilty. Anthony, then 25, was convicted on four misdemeanor accounts for lying to investigators.
Here’s what we know about the upcoming documentary.
“Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies” Plot
The documentary features Anthony’s first on-camera interview since she was found not guilty for her daughter’s killing. “Since her acquittal in 2011, public opinion of Casey Anthony has been largely shaped by the media convinced of her guilt,” showrunner Alexandra Dean said in a statement, per Variety. “What emerges over the course of multiple interviews recorded over six months is a startling psychological portrait of Casey Anthony and a complete narrative of what she says happened to her daughter weighed against multiple sources of potential evidence. I believe the result will surprise many and cause the American public to look at this story in a new light.” Reps for Dean did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment.
“Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies” Release Date
The documentary will be released on Peacock on Nov. 29.
