Amid Death Threats, Casey Anthony Juror Moves to Michigan


As Florida murder acquittee Casey Anthony is poised to be freed from jail Sunday, one juror in her case has moved to Michigan. Quoting NBC News, the New York Daily News says Juror Number 12 quit her job at a local market over the phone and moved. The woman, 60, lives in fear that her co-workers might attack her in outrage over the jury’s not guilty verdict, her husband says.

The jury’s foreman, who is also remaining anonymous, told Fox News that most of the jurors feel the prosecution is at fault for not proving how the murder happened, leaving reasonable doubt. “When I had to sign off on the verdicts, the sheet that was given to me, there was a feeling of disgust that came across me, knowing that my signature and hers were going to be there, on the same sheet,” the foreman told Greta Van Susteren. Judge Belvin Perry won’t release the names of the jurors until after an unspecified “cooling off period.” A juror in the 1995. O. J. Simpson trial warned that the Anthony jurors will face severe hardships once their names are made public. “For the first year, I had to hear O.J.’s name every single day,” Yolanda Crawford told USA Today. Anthony defense lawyer Cheney Mason told that death threats have been made to Anthony, her attorneys, her parents, and jurors.
