Should they release it?

I think they should not.

A Florida judge is considering whether to unseal a jailhouse video of acquitted murder suspect Casey Anthony that was considered so "highly inflammatory" that it would have made it difficult to give her a fair trial.
The video shows Anthony reacting to news reports that a child's body had been found in a swampy area near the Anthony home.
The tape reportedly shows Anthony double over and start to hyperventilate when Orange County jail officials told her a meter reader had stumbled upon the remains near Suburban Drive, according to an Orlando Sentinel article from 2009.
At the time of the Dec. 11, 2008 video, the body was not identiifed to be the remains of her 2-year-od daughter Caylee. Positive identification came eight days later.
The court took what is called an "unusual step" and sealed the video on June 17, 2009 claiming that allowing the public to see it would be "highly inflammatory," and that the court "could not absolutely protect the defendant's right to a fair trial," according to the order to seal document.

They already showed part of it a long time ago, before it was sealed. She was pretty STRESSED in her prison area. Maybe it was not that particular video, but the one they showed, she was definitely agitated when a "body" was discovered, where it was found...she KNEW she was busted...not that it really meant much anyway, since the body had decomposed so much by that time.
