Although Casey Anthony is close to being a free woman, she will be hounded by those who think they can make a quick buck by exploiting her notoriety. Her story, although devalued by the universal knowledge that it is likely to be a pack of lies like everything else associated with Ms. Anthony, will still be worth a pretty penny.
Meanwhile, people who think they were wronged by her lies seek to recover their fruitless expenditures. Who knows how this will all work out?
Here’s an idea for them that will be fun and entertaining for all of us, while having the potential to yield some significant income so the Anthonys can settle with Zenaida Gonzalez out of court. I’m talking about selling infamous evidentiary items such as the Pontiac Sunfire on eBay. Wouldn’t you love to have the notoriously malodorous stinkmobile sitting up on blocks on your front lawn in Bithlo next to the old washing machine? Seriously, though, the car in which Casey allegedly (still) stashed her little girl’s decomposing body before tossing it into the swamp would bring in a nice sum on eBay, don’t you think? How about the HP computer, with the Firefox history left intact? You could wow your friends by searching for “choroform” multiple times. According to George Anthony, the cops took a lot of stuff from his house pursuant to a search warrant, good stuff with real value to collectors who will keep the Casey Anthony trial’s legacy in a prominent place for many years to come. These will be nostalgic remembrances as we grow old, and they will be passed down to succeeding generations to preserve memories of the party girl who got away with murder.
I believe that the Anthonys have 60 days to claim the confiscated evidence.
In addition to the stuff confiscated for evidence, how about some of Casey’s outfits made famous by her photo gallery. The U.S. flag pictured here is an example of something that could be sold on eBay quite easily. It would, of course, have to be authenticated. (By DNA evidence on it, maybe?) And how about that poker playing French maid outfit she wore in some other pictures, presumably at a costume party? Who wouldn’t want that? Even some of the clothing she wore in court at the trial will have value.
The original chloroform bottle: priceless.
All kidding aside, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see these items (and phony representations of same) starting to show up on auction sites.
