Casey Anthony, the Florida woman acquitted of murdering her toddler daughter Caylee, could be released from an Orange County, Fla., jail as early as midnight tonight.

The exact details of the release are being kept a state secret, but security will be tight.

Anthony's defense attorney Cheney Mason has not spoken about his first jail visit with Anthony since she was ruled not guilty on murder charges, leaving several big questions about the most famous acquitted murder suspect since O.J. Simpson.

Casey Anthony was found not guilty of murder, but guilty of lying to police four times.

Her defense team has given no clues about where will she go and what will she do once she is free.

"I think it's unfortunately too soon tell that," Jose Baez, Anthony's lead attorney, told ABC News when asked where the young woman was going to live. "We don't have all of the answers yet."

Baez did say, however, that she would not be sleeping at her parents' house.

Since her acquittal, the only welcomed guests at the jail have been her attorneys. She has refused to see her mother, and her father George Anthony seemed to widen the rift with an email sent to reporters and followers asking them to support a petition for Caylee's law, proposed in the Florida legislature, which would make it a felony not to report missing children.

Anthony partied and lied about Caylee's whereabouts for a month after her daughter was last seen, creating widespread public belief that she had killed her daughter.

Orlando legal analyst Bill Schaeffer said he is convinced her legal advisors will personally guide Anthony to safety and economic security, and likely in the land of reality TV.

"Where does she go? She goes to Los Angeles. You have enough money and you have enough celebrity, even though it's the kind of celebrity most of us don't want," Schaeffer said. "You can live out there and you can live comfortably."

Casey Anthony has already been offered a million dollars from an independent producer to tell her story, which is appalling to many, including the foreman of the jury that acquitted her of murder.

"We are dealing with a child who is deceased. To profit off it is not something I can imagine somebody doing, especially the mother of that child," said the foreman, who spoke anonymously.
