Exonerated murder mom CASEY ANTHONY packs on the pounds while in hiding.

Casey Anthony has been venturing out in public on a routine basis lately, going unnoticed she’s tipping human zeppelin like proportions and is virtually unrecognizable due to her extreme weight gain,  reports.

Anthony has been in hiding in Florida since she was acquitted of murdering her two year old daughter, Caylee.

 Ironically, Anthony is said to have found religion and was recently baptized.

"Casey has been venturing out on a much more frequent basis recently because she is almost unrecognizable," a source close to the situation said.

"Casey has gained a great deal of weight in the past six months and her face is extremely puffy. She hasn't needed to wear a disguise because of the physical transformation. Casey is finding comfort in food and she is clearly eating a lot.

She typically goes out at night to rent DVDs and pick up food to go from restaurants. She is very careful to not linger anywhere when she does and tries not to make eye contact with anyone.

“Casey doesn't feel safe anywhere and just wants to leave the country."
