The Daily Beast website is reporting that Casey Anthony has, or still is, taking shelter in a Palm City church.


PALM CITY, Florida (CBS12) -- Could Casey Anthony have been taking refuge in Martin County? A lot of people are convinced, and exclusive video appears to show a person matching her description inside a house on church property.

Video obtained by our sister station WPEC CBS12 shows a blonde woman with a bob haircut, walking past a window. This look is similar to how Anthony recently appeared in her video diary that surfaced online last month.

Multiple media outlets, including The Daily Beast, are reporting that she may be living in a building at the Cross Church of Palm City. An investigator on Casey Anthony's defense team reportedly is a member of the church.

A man who answered the door at the building wouldn't answer any questions Wednesday night and asked us to leave the property. 

Residents in the town took to the streets with signs supporting and opposing her presence, many driving by the property hoping for a glimpse. Police were called to the property to keep the peace at one point when a group of teens approached the property Wednesday night.

Residents outside the property spoke with CBS12 late Wednesday night:

"I just wanted to know what's going on. Wanting to know if it's true. (If she's here) I think she needs to find somewheres else to go. Especially not here in Palm City. We raise too many children up over here."

"You know she's going to be moving a lot for the rest of her life, because I don't think no matter where she goes, when people find out where she is, they're going to probably not want her to stay."

"You just need to get out and go somewhere nobody knows you."

Anthony was acquitted last year in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee who was found in a swamp near her parents' home in the Orlando area.
