Onlookers are claiming to have spotted former defendant Casey Anthony, or at least an uncanny look-a-like, dining on hot wings at a Florida restaurant recently, making this possibly her first public photo since she was found not guilty in the death of her two-year-old daughter, Caylee, in July 2012.
Several media outlets are claiming grainy photos showing a young brunette female wearing a white beanie and dining at Flanigan's Seafood Bar and Grill in Lake Worth, Fla., on Dec. 7 is 26-year-old Anthony.
The female was reportedly dining with Patrick McKenna, a private investigator of West Palm Beach, Florida who worked on Anthony's defense team. The grainy photo was shared by TMZ.com.
"No one wants to be associated with Casey, it's just such bad publicity," one source claiming to have seen Anthony at the restaurant told Radar Online, adding that the supposed Anthony was dining around 7 p.m. on Friday night.
"She was really quiet and not that many people were noticing it was her," the source added.
The Twittersphere was in shock to see Anthony possibly living a normal life, as she has only made herself public via a series of home videos talking about her new life since she was acquitted of her daughter's murder.
"Do you think enough time has passed for Casey to live a normal life?" questioned news anchor Anderson Cooper through his new daytime talk show's Twitter handle, Anderson Live.
"If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, it's Casey Anthony," tweeted Niki Lasrson, attempting to verify that the spotted woman was Anthony because of her distinct resemblance to the famed defendant.
In July 2012, Anthony was acquitted in the murder of her two-year-old daughter Caylee, whose remains were found in a trash bag near the Anthony family home in Orlando, Fla.
Anthony's complicated and highly public trial drew the ire and interest of Americans, with one probation spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Corrections dubbing her "one of the most hated women in America."
