Casey Anthony, the woman accused of murdering her daughter Caylee, has been found after seeking refuge in Florida. The publicity surrounding the case led to various threats against Anthony, which lead to her hiding out. Now that she has been found, will these threats resurface and put her in harm's way?

Anthony's location was revealed after she was served a subpoena in a pending lawsuit.
"Our investigation team had her whereabouts pinned down," a lawyer for the defendant Zenaida Gonzalez told People magazine.
"Their backs were against the wall, so her attorneys said they would accept service on her behalf," attorney Matt Morgan stated. The investigators had staked out Anthony's location for several days before moving in. Anthony had been in hiding for the past 10 months, after being acquitted of the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
The murder trial captivated the nation and caused intense emotions for those following the case. Throughout the trial, Anthony received threats of violence and death, which is why she went into hiding. In light of Anthony's discovery and ousting, the threats have resumed.
"Casey honey…you will be safe NOWHERE!" user forcaylee posted on People's website. "Just bc you leave this country doesn't mean you will have a better life somewhere else. Don't forget darling Casey you are a face the media will NEVER FORGET. I hope you go down girl," the post continues before becoming even more violent.
There are currently 69 pages of nothing but comments from People readers, showing that there is still an intense interest in Anthony. Many of the comments are incredibly violent and show great disdain for the woman. One may wonder if Anthony will be placed in harm's way by being exposed and forced to attend court on a regular basis.
"I can see from the comments that she is still the most hated person," noted People reader Sandra.
There has been no comment by Anthony's attorneys, but the court could take precautions to ensure her safety as she travels between her home and the court. Only time will tell if Anthony will once again be forced into hiding after the trial is over, or where she may go since her home has been revealed.
