Casey Anthony appears in Phillies cap

Posted: October 10, 2011

What's up with Casey Anthony wearing a Phillies cap?

Is she a fan?

Had she been hiding out for a while near Philadelphia?

Or did she just take advantage of deeply discounted prices after the deep disappointment of Friday's Game 5 elimination from the playoffs at the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals?

Like her guilt or innocence, we may never know.

In July, in a case that became a national obsession, a Florida jury found Anthony not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

On Saturday, Casey Anthony faced another legal proceeding, giving a videotaped deposition in a civil suit. A woman named Zenaida Gonzalez is suing Anthony for falsely naming her as Caylee's babysitter at the time the child disappeared.

During the video-conference deposition, Anthony wore "a Phillies cap, oversized Dolce & Gabbana glasses, and a white V-necked top," according to CNN.

She also wore a "what appeared to be a dark, black wig," said Matt Morgan, one of Gonzalez's attorneys, who speculated she may have changed her hairstyle or hair color since the trial.

Morgan described her to a Central Florida TV station as "deep breathing, nostrils flaring" and said, "She did not want to be there. Clearly annoyed, but composed, courteous, not rude."

Anthony declined to answer questions, invoking the Fifth Amendment. Her location was unknown, except that she was in Florida serving a year's probation for check fraud.

A videotape of the deposition could become public this week, CNN reported, if Gonzalez's attorneys seek a court ruling that Anthony must answer questions.

Why the Phillies cap? isn't likely to be among them.
