Reports that Casey Anthony, the mother who was accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, was found bludgeoned to death, are false. Casey, who was spotted at an Anti-Trump rally back in February and spoke publicly for the first time in nine years last March, is alive

The fake report originated on Breaking News 13 back in 2015 and has now been republished by Now8News, a website that at first glance, appears to be a genuine local television news source. The website falsely reported that Anthony’s body was found in the back of an abandoned pickup truck near an Ohio highway.

“Unconfirmed reports coming out of Warren, Ohio state that the body of Casey Anthony was found in a rest stop near I-71, bludgeoned to death. At 6:37 PM, a traveler noticed a body in the back of a pickup truck abandoned in a grassy field about 20 yards from the parking area as he was walking his dog.

“The man said as he approached the vehicle, there was a horrible stench in the air. He was shocked to find a young female, in her late 20’s to early 30’s, partially dismembered. The man immediately called 911. Police arrived and quickly closed off a section of I-71 and the nearby rest stop as they further investigated the scene.”
