Call her Marked Anthony.

Now that America’s most hated mother has been released from prison, eluding both reporters and hecklers as she fled into the night, her future remains uncertain if not downright dangerous.

Casey Anthony, who was acquitted of killing her two-year-old daughter, Caylee, on July 5, was whisked out of the Orange County, Fl., jail shortly after midnight yesterday under heavy security protection while a crowd jeered “baby killer” and “you suck!” She climbed into a black SUV, followed by a throng of people who blocked traffic before police cleared them away.

A motorcade was later seen at the Orlando Executive airport, but it wasn’t clear if Anthony had flown out. Trial watchers speculated she might be en route to Ohio, where she has relatives, or Puerto Rico, where her attorney, Jose Baez, has property. Moving in with her parents in Florida seems unlikely, as her defense laywers accused her dad of molesting her in your youth.

Anthony, 25, who had been in the jail since her 2008 arrest, has received death threats, according to her legal team. She is being sued by a Texas group that came to Florida to search for her missing toddler and by Zenaida Gonzalez, the nanny who Anthony accused of kidnapping her child.

“She is safer in jail than she is out here,” Anthony protestor Mike Quiroz was quoted as saying.
