(Newser) – Casey Anthony has come out of seclusion, briefly, for the first time since being acquitted of murdering daughter Caylee: "Obviously I didn't kill my daughter," she told Piers Morgan yesterday during a short phone call, which he recounted on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight. "If anything, there's nothing in this world l've ever been more proud of, and there's no one I loved more than my daughter," Anthony continued. "She's my greatest accomplishment."

She also looked back on previous interviews she'd done, telling Morgan, "I'm ashamed in many ways of the person that I was. Even then, that wasn't who I am. … I've never been a party girl. I don't drink now. I've probably had a handful of beers since I've been on probation." She added that she doesn't trust law enforcement, and that she's "not making gazillions of dollars at the hands of other people" or trying to capitalize on her story. "I'm 26 now, and I've gone through hell," she said.
