Tracking the ownership of the Pilatus PC-12 private jet that whisked Anthony, 25, out of Orlando to points unknown last Sunday morning, NBC News pointed to California attorney Todd Macaluso, who at one point had been a member of Casey's defense team and had given her $70,000.
Macaluso's firm maintains an office at the Palomar Airport in Carlsbad. Its private plane, says the firm's website, "enables us to travel anywhere within the United States in seven hours."
There are also reports that Macaluso, who did not speak to NBC for the story, left Anthony's defense team early last year after running into trouble with the California Bar.
The plane carrying Anthony is believed to have taken a circuitous route before landing at John Wayne Airport, in Orange County, Calif., said NBC.
The Phoenix Fox TV station KSAZ reports that one of the stops could have been Prescott, Ariz.
NBC also reported that the IRS has placed a tax lien against Anthony, and that one of her moneymaking plans might be to hold a pay-per-view TV interview.
