Looks like it may indeed be a good idea for Casey Anthony to disguise herself: In Chouteau, Oklahoma, a woman allegedly tried to kill an Anthony look-alike. Sammay Blackwell was working at her convenience store job last week when a suspicious-looking woman visited the store after 10pm. But after Blackwell left, she saw the woman again—"staring directly at me"—and the woman then followed her and, Blackwell says, rammed her truck, which flipped two and a half times.

Though Blackwell never spoke to her alleged attacker, she tells KWTV that people have told her she looks like Anthony, and at least one police officer confirms the woman did mistake Blackwell for Anthony. The police told her that the woman "said that I was trying to hurt babies, [that] I was killing babies, and she was going to stop me before it happened again," Blackwell says. Shireen Nalley has been charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon, reports KOTV (which also adds, in a crazy twist, that Blackwell's child is also named Caylee). The real Casey Anthony will be released from jail on Sunday. Click for the story of another bizarre crime related to the Anthony verdict. (Read more Casey Anthony stories.)
