In recent federal bankruptcy documents, Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery says that Casey Anthony knew her daughter was already dead when the search began in 2008.

Anthony was acquitted of murder in her daughter's death. Her attorney said during trial that the girl drowned accidentally in a family swimming pool in Orlando.

Anthony filed for bankruptcy in January, claiming that she is unemployed and has just $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities. Equusearch says Anthony should not be relieved of the $100,000 debt.

In order to repay some of her debts, Anthony hopes to sell the rights to her story. She is awaiting a ruling on whether or not she can do so.
