Casey Anthony is aiming for Costa Rica as her next hideaway once she can leave Florida following her probation. She has been in hiding since she was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. However, she has recently been making forays back out in to the public, but virtually unrecognizable due to the amount of weight she has gained.
Anthony is on probation for one year after pleading guilty to writing bad checks and is required to live in Florida. Once Casey’s probation ends later this summer, she plans on ditching the sunshine state for central Amercia.
“Casey is counting the days until her probation ends. She has been researching countries that she could move to and Costa Rica is at the top of the list,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. “Casey wants to live in a warm tropical setting and the cost of living is extremely low in Costa Rica. She wants to put as much distance as possible from Florida. Costa Rica appeals to her because Americans are warmly embraced by the locals, and she feels this is the best place to start a new life.”
However, her legal woes are far from over. She is being sued by Zanaida Gonzalez for defamation after Casey said a woman with that name kidnapped Caylee.
The defamation trial is scheduled to begin in January and she will be called as a witness by Zanaida’s lawyers.
According to reports, she is “annoyed” that she has to testify at the upcoming trial but Zenaida’s lawyer minces no words, saying Anthony has only herself to blame.
