CLEARWATER, FL (WFLX) - The murder trial of Casey Anthony is set to begin Monday.

Sunday night, three independent sources confirmed lawyers will choose the jury pool in Clearwater.

Palm Beach County was rumored to be one of the locations where jurors would be selected after the judge was spotted in the Palm Beach County courthouse.

All eyes on the courtroom of Orange County Judge Belvin Perry. Monday he will 'officially' reveal which jury pool will help decide the fate of Casey Anthony.

Nearly three years ago, then 22-year-old Anthony was accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. "Its had national and even international exposure," said legal expert Michelle Suskauer.

So much exposure, especially in Central Florida where Anthony's story was playing out daily in front of news cameras. 

The challenge, to find people who can sit on a jury without pre-judging Anthony.

Judge Perry is reportedly looking to places such as Palm Beach, Pinellas, Hillsborough and Duval Counties.

"Its going to be hard to find people that haven't heard about this case. Maybe if you have been living under a rock, you've heardn't about the Casey Anthony case," said Suskauer.

She said selecting jurors will be very difficult on two front: Not only finding jurors who haven't pre-judged Anthony, but also finding jurors who can handle the hardships they may face.  Many will be out of work and in a courtroom for what could be months. "Not anyone can take for example two months out of their live and be sequestered and live in a hotel in Orlando," said Suskauer.
