Casey Anthony is set to appear in a documentary about her life, People reports.

The 36-year-old became the subject of a scandalous media circus when her two-year-old daughter Caylee went missing in 2008. After months of a nationwide hunt for the missing toddler, her remains were found in a wooded area near the family home, and Anthony was charged by police with murder.

In 2011, she was brought to trial in a blockbuster court case. According to Nielsen Research, at least 40 million people tuned in to watch her testify. On July 5, 2021, jurors shocked the world by acquitting Anthony of murder and manslaughter - but convicting her on four counts of lying to police.

Now, the South Florida mom is reportedly going to be giving her version of events in a new documentary about her infamous case.

A source close to Anthony told People that: "She's waited almost 14 years to really talk deeply about her experience. She's now getting ready to tell her truth. She feels like it's time."

Over the last few years, Anthony has mostly avoided the spotlight, leading a quiet life. "Since she got out of jail, she's kept to herself," said the source.

But they added that she is now ready to have her version of events told. "She feels like it's time for her to set the record straight and say what she needs to say. She wants her voice to be heard," they said.

Anthony has only given her side of the story once before, in a 2017 interview with the Associated Press where she claimed not to care about what the public thought of her.

"I don't give a s*** about what anyone thinks about me, I never will," she said, adding: "Based off what was in the media, I understand the reasons people feel about me. I understand why people have the opinions that they do."

She went on to say: "I didn't do what I was accused of, but I fought for three years. Not just for me, but for my daughter."

Whether Anthony has already given her new interview yet - and when the documentary is going to air - still remains to be seen. People reports that it will appear on a major streaming service.
