(Newser) – Authorities at the Orange County Jail won't say what time they will release their most famous inmate.

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."

An earlier report quoting insiders predicted she would disguise her appearance but stop short of plastic surgery. (Read more Casey Anthony stories.)
