NEWBURY, Ohio - A website published pictures Wednesday of a woman it said is Casey Anthony in Ohio.
Almost immediately after Anthony walked out of jail in July, rumors began circulating about her whereabouts. Within hours of her release, there was a report she boarded a private plane headed for Columbus.
She is the talk of the town in Newbury, Ohio, where residents said she had been spotted at local restaurants and a grocery store.
At the restaurant Mangia! Mangia!, manager Natalie Corrigan said, "Oh, everybody is talking about it, customers are walking in, Is she here? Is she here?" said Corrigan.
Celebrity gossip website TMZ.com has posted pictures of a woman it claims is Anthony on its website. The website said Anthony was photographed while shopping in Columbus over the weekend. She was wearing an Ohio State ballcap in the photos.
Ohio State University spokesperson Jim Lynch released a statement that said, "We are never surprised to see Buckeye pride displayed across the world. Buckeye hoodies and hats have traditionally been spotted across the world, and we understand that as a result, our logo will be seen in a wide range of news situations, whether positive or negative."
