The notorious Casey Anthony, accused of killing her toddler daughter, Caylee, before she was acquitted in 2011, apparently wants to be an advocate for those who she thinks have been wrongfully convicted, and at the top of her list is the equally notorious Scott Peterson.
According to an interview between 32-year-old Anthony and DailyMail, the Florida woman decided to cancel her plans to be a reality TV star, and has chosen instead to “help wrongfully convicted people.” Her first choice is the wife and child murderer, Scott Peterson, currently on death row at California’s San Quentin prison for killing his wife Laci, and their unborn son, Conner, in 2002.
“My next project is a meeting with Scott Peterson in California this summer,” Anthony reportedly said in a conversation with DailyMail via her “independently-authenticated” Twitter account. “I have turned down a reality shows..I think I will take time and help people wrongfully convicted..all reality shows are off the list.”
Anthony reportedly explained that doing a reality show, that was tentatively titled, “Casey Moving Forward,” would have been too invasive. She added that producers wanted to add things into the show that she didn’t approve of.
“They wanted to add things that I didn’t.. we will leave it at that. I guess the life of Casey wasn’t good enough, and wanted to make me more wild to hype up the speculation of me and make what everyone has thought about me all along to be true. I am not the wild child that everyone characterizes me to be. I am not shy.. I am very outgoing.. I love everyone..but I am in no ways a wild easy woman.”
Anthony explained to the outlet that she chose Peterson because she believes he may be innocent. She allegedly went as far as naming another person, Evelyn Hernandez, of San Francisco, as a possible suspect.
Anthony has also taken interest in Darlie Routier, a woman sitting on death row in Texas for the murder of her 5-year-old son, Damon, who died June 6, 1996. Routier maintains that an intruder broke into her Rowlett, Texas, home and killed Damon and her other son, Devon, 6. Both children died from stab wounds caused by a butcher knife.
Routier was convicted for Damon’s death only. At the time, prosecutors planned to charge Routier with Devon’s death only if she was found not guilty of Damon’s death.
Routier, who has numerous supporters who believe in her innocence, is awaiting DNA test results taken in November from a bloody fingerprint found at the crime scene.
Further, Anthony wants to dig into the case of 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson. In 2013, Kendrick was found deceased at Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Georgia, inside a large, rolled up wrestling mat. Authorities indicated Kendrick got stuck in the mat and suffocated while crawling through it to find his shoes, but a third autopsy revealed that his death was caused by “non-accidental blunt force trauma” to his neck and thorax.
“How about Kendrick Johnson…how did his body get into [a] rolled up gym mat? His shoulders were bigger than the opening of the mat. Obviously he didn’t crawl into it to get his shoes,” Anthony reportedly said.
One person Anthony refused to assist is Jodi Arias, a woman convicted in 2013 of killing her former boyfriend, Travis Alexander. Anthony said she’d rather punch Arias, a woman she called “calculated and manipulative.”
“I would like to punch her in the face..maybe as bad as others want to punch me in the face.”
