Is Casey Anthony Dead? 'Bludgeoned' to Death Hoax Goes Viral

Many on social media reacted to the Casey Anthony Dead reports, claiming that her death was a result of karma while reviving the hashtag #JusticeForCaylee. The mother, who was accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter in 2008, was allegedly found bludgeoned to death.

According to reports, the claim originated on the repeatedly discredited site, the Breaking News 13, in 2015, and was then republished by Now8News – a website that masquerades as a genuine and legitimate local news source. The fake article asserted that Anthony was found dead at an Ohio rest stop at the age of 29.

Is Casey Anthony Dead True? Mother ‘Bludgeoned’ to Death!

The death hoax purported: “Unconfirmed reports coming out of Warren, Ohio state that the body of Casey Anthony was found at a rest stop near I-71, bludgeoned to death. At 1:37 p.m. on Monday, 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.”

Furthermore, the dubious statement read: “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.”

The man who found the dead body went on to reportedly state that the woman in the back of the truck had a “severed arm, multiple stab wounds to the stomach, and her skull was partially carved in at the top.” The said informant allegedly noted that the victim’s mouth was duct taped shut, and “her face was covered in maggots.” Eyewitnesses said that it was “something they will never forget.”

Nevertheless, the Casey Anthony Dead report was debunked. Those who were unaware that both of those news sites were not real outlets might have been easily fooled by the claim, as it definitely appeared believable. According to credible reports, the 31-year-old mother currently lives in Palm Beach, Florida and works as a photographer.

A Twitter user commented, “Not sure how true this is but if it is, she got what she deserved! Now she can rot in hell for eternity.” Another gushed, “If this was only true, it would be karma at its finest.”
