Casey Anthony is producing a documentary about the murder of her daughter Caylee

Casey Anthony is planning to make a documentary abut the 2008 murder of her two-year-old daughter, Caylee.

First reported by TMZ and confirmed by DailyMail.com, Anthony, 34, is teaming up with producers Tamra Simmons and Ebony Porter-Ike for the film.

The documentary is being filmed 10 years after Anthony was acquitted of the toddler’s killing, a contentious ruling that led to her being dubbed ‘America’s most hated mom.’ 

It comes two months after DailyMail.com revealed that Anthony filed paperwork for a new company named Case Research & Consulting Services in the hope of becoming a private investigator.

Anthony will be a producer on the ‘authorized’ documentary that will offer her viewpoint on her daughter’s death.   

TMZ reports that Anthony is ‘finally ready to clear her name, bring justice to her daughter and begin the process of establishing her daughter’s legacy in a different light.’

The two producers, Simmons and Porter-Ike, also told the publication that the film will have ‘shocking’ revelations and will answers many questions the public has had since the trial.

DailyMail.com has reached out to Simmons and Porter-Ike for further comment on the film.

Little Caylee was reported missing on July 15, 2008 by her maternal grandmother, Cindy, who made a 911 call. 

She reported that she had not seen Caylee for 31 days and that Anthony’s car smelled like a dead body had been inside it.

When questioned by detectives, Anthony gave several strange explanations for her daughter’s whereabouts before alleging that a babysitter had kidnapped her.

For four months, state and federal authorities as well as local volunteers searched the Orlando area for the toddler.  

Within that time, Anthony was arrested and charged with first degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child and four counts of providing false information to police. 

In December, Caylee’s skeletal remains were found in a wooded area near Anthony’s house.

It took more than two years before the case was brought to trial, for which Anthony faced the death penalty.

The trial lasted six weeks, from May to July 2011, during which Anthony did not testify. 

During the trial, which was broadcast live on national networks, prosecutors argued that Anthony was a party girl who had killed her daughter to relieve herself of her responsibilities as a mom.

However, the jury wasn’t convinced. In July 2011, after deliberating for 10 hours and 45 minutes, Anthony was fount not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter of a child. 

She was found guilty of four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to law enforcement.

Anthony was sentenced to one year in county jail and ordered to pay $1,000 in fines for each of the four misdemenour counts but, because she spent more than two years in jail prior to the trial, she received credit for her sentence.

She was acquitted for all charged except four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to police. Pictured: Anthony poses for a portrait next to a photo of her daughter, Caylee, in her West Palm Beach, Florida bedroom, February 2017

In December 2020, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Anthony had launched a new business as a wannabe private investigator.  

She appeared to have been working with Patrick J. McKenna, 72, a veteran private detective who she has lived with in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Because of Anthony’s charges, she is disqualified from ever holding a private investigator license in the state of Florida.

She cannot access sensitive personal data such as social security numbers and license plates – but there is nothing to stop her searching public records, looking up criminal backgrounds or carrying out surveillance. 

Four years ago, DailyMail.com revealed Anthony had set up a photography business, which has since closed. 

Images showed with McKenna, who appeared to be coaching her on how to take surveillance pictures of buildings.
