Casey Anthony look-alike attacked and threatened in Orlando

By Arthur Weinreb     Aug 6, 2011 in Crime
Orlando - An Orlando woman who bears a resemblance to the infamous "Tot Mom" told an Orlando television station that she has been pushed to the ground and threatened since Anthony was released from jail.
Her facial features are easily distinguishable from those of Anthony who angered much of the U.S. and the world when she was acquitted of three serious criminal charges arising from the death of her two-year-old daughter, Caylee. But when Concetta Graves goes out in public wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses, she can easily be mistaken for Orlando's most famous ex-resident.
When interviewed by WESH TV in Orlando, Graves said that Casey Anthony had made her life miserable. Graves' problems began after Anthony was released from the Orange Country Jail shortly after midnight on July 17.
Graves told WESH TV that she has been yelled at, threatened and even physically attacked since Anthony completed her sentence on four counts of giving false information to the police and gained her freedom . One man quickly flung a door open and yelled, "Oh my God, there's Casey Anthony." And when Graves went to a post office, she said she was stalked by a man who was convinced she was the woman who faced no consequences in the death of her daughter.
In the most serious incident, Graves was out walking with her brother, D.M. Blade, in her neighbourhood close to the Anthony family home. A pickup truck containing three men passed them and they heard the cries of "baby killer" coming from the vehicle. One of the men left the truck and knocked Graves down. Her brother came to her defense and suffered two black eyes in the ensuing scuffle.
Graves and her brother had written a book, Elrey Rockford and the Jaxius Prophecy, that was published last April. When people first began to look at her on the street, the young woman thought it was because they recognized her as an author.
Graves plans to change her hairstyle and forgo wearing a baseball cap until the furor over Anthony dies down. With the media, particularly HLN, still obsessed with Casey Anthony, her plans and current whereabouts, it is unlikely Graves will be able to safely don her baseball cap and sunglasses any time soon.
