Los Angeles, Calif. – After only three days listed on the auction site eBay, a latex Halloween mask bearing the image of Casey Anthony sold for almost $1 million Wednesday.
The winning bid was $999,900 after 41 bidders made 105 attempts to obtain the eerily accurate mask.
According to the ad placed by a now wealthy Los Angeles seller, “…here’s your chance to scare… everyone and win every costume contest with this amazing Tot Mom… mask, possibly the most frightening mask on the planet.” The ad also stated the mask is “numbered 6 of 9” and will be a “significant piece of crime history.”
Prosecutors alleged that Casey rendered her toddler daughter, Caylee Anthony, 2, unconscious in the summer of 2008 using chloroform and then suffocated her with duct tape. They claimed she then put the girl’s body in her car trunk and later dumped Caylee in a wooded area near the Anthony family home.
Her defense attorneys claimed that Caylee died accidentally by drowning in the family’s backyard pool.
Jurors rendered a “not guilty” verdict on July 5 and Casey walked out of jail a free woman on July 17.
Several jurors said publicly after the trial concluded that the prosecution did not present enough evidence for them to convict Casey of murder.
The mask depicts the way Casey wore her hair and the constant vacant expression she kept on her face for a majority of the trial.
