Casey Anthony will be released on Sunday after serving more than 1,000 days in prison. Though she was found not-guilty of murder, the court of public opinion reached a different verdict. Now authorities are concerned for her safety. She may use a disguise or change her name once she's release.

But even if she changes her name, she's not the only Casey Anthony out there. A 43-year-old black man in Darby, Pennsylvania named Casey Anthony has had his life turned upside down since the verdict. Watch this video.

His Facebook account has been taxed with friend requests and messages. His profile included his phone number as well, so he's also getting lots of angry calls and texts.

He told NBC Philadelphia:

[They were] making comments about the verdict; who am I to take a child's life. And then I'm sitting back like, excuse me? I'm not the Casey Anthony you think.

To make matters worse, he has two sons with the same name! How inconvenient. It's funny how the actions of someone else can so drastically rock your world.

With a name like Priska Neely, there's little chance that I will ever be in this scenario.
