One eBay bidder is willing to spend nearly one million dollars for a mask that resembles Casey Anthony on Halloween night.
A pre-owned latex mask sold after 105 bids were placed on Wednesday for $999,900. The extremely rare mask had a starting bid of $25 and is billed as “a significant piece of crime history.” The seller, based in Los Angeles, says the mask was “sculpted to precision for a parody video by enigmatic pop artist/sculptor Torro.”
Only nine masks were made for the video, and the seller apparently managed to grab a few after the production wrapped. This mask was number six in the series. The winning bidder’s identity was protected on eBay, displaying only “9***6. ” The mask was the only item the member has bid on in the past 30 days.
On July 5, 2011, the jury found Casey Anthony not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter, and aggravated child abuse. This verdict sparked outrage across the country. She was found guilty on four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.
