For some, the story of Casey Anthony could translate to big bucks.
It was only a matter of time. Now that Caylee's body has been found, people are trying to cash in on the Casey Anthony story.
According to Rory O'Neil with Westwood One, defense attorney for accused killer Casey Anthony is rumored to be seeking an entertainment deal "contingent on the outcome of Anthony's case." O'Neil stated Baez's behavior is strictly prohibited by the Florida State Bar. If the allegations are true, this would be considered an enormous conflict of interest.
Baez is allegedly steering the case in a direction that would make for the best entertainment value, according to a source from Orlando Sentinel.
Sick. As if the case of Casey Anthony wasn't already twisted enough!
But Baez won't be the first who has tried to profit from this tragic story, and he likely won't be the last. Back in November 2008, George and Cindy Anthony fired spokesperson Larry Garrison for allegedly "secretly profiting from the disappearance of 3-year-old Caylee." No further details were given.
Questions against bounty hunter Leonard Padilla surfaced when he charged a $9.95 fee to enter his website. Padillas' site said that the proceeds would go to Equusearch, the search firm that was looking for Caylee at the time. However, the founder of the search company, Tim Miller, said he never received a dime.
Do you think people should be able to make blood money off the Casey Anthony case?
