An Oklahoma woman claims she was nearly killed last week by a crazed attacker who appeared to mistake her for the soon-to-be-freed Casey Anthony.
Sammay Blackwell told News 9 that a woman entered the convenience store where she works around 10 p.m. last Friday, only days after Anthony was acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter.
After purchasing gas, the woman waited for Blackwell’s shift to end. Once it did, Blackwell says that the woman rammed her car with her own, causing it to flip two and a half times.
“I got in my vehicle and began to back out and looked and could tell she was staring directly at me,” Blackwell said. “I could almost see the white in her eyes.”
It might be wise to take her story of mistaken identity with a grain of salt, especially given that the police report apparently doesn’t include the Anthony look-a-like tidbit, and the TV news station reported the story by citing “at least one police officer” who said that was the attacker’s motivation.
Still, the crash did happen and police say that once they arrested the attacker, Shireen Nalley, for assault and battery with a deadly weapon, she said that she had rammed Blackwell’s car because she was "trying to save the children."
It also wouldn’t be the first time that Anthony confusion has caused problems for the person being mistaken for the woman acquitted of killing her own daughter.
And in case this story needed just an extra dash of the sensational, Tampa Bay news station WTSP has this nugget: Blackwell has a daughter named, you guessed it, Caylee.
