(Newser) – Authorities at the Orange County Jail won't say what time they will release their most famous inmate. Sometime Sunday is the official answer, but Casey Anthony could walk as early as midnight. Protesters already are gathering outside the jail, and not everybody is a Casey hater, notes the Orlando Sentinel. "She was tried. People need to respect that due process," said one Florida resident, holding a sign that said, "She's Not Guilty Get Over It."

Anthony's defense team won't say where she will go, other than to say it won't be to her parents' home, or what she will do. Will she try to cash in? The foreman of the jury that acquitted her hopes not: "We are dealing with a child who is deceased," the foreman tells ABC News. To profit off it is not something I can imagine somebody doing, especially the mother of that child." An earlier report quoting insiders predicted she would disguise her appearance but stop short of plastic surgery.
