Perhaps the most disgusting thing at the Casey Anthony hearing thus far in my view was watching her brother Lee testify. His unkempt , unshaven, and disrespectful sloppy appearance was appalling. His picking at his ears and face as though he was squeezing a pimple was downright repulsive in my view.
His inappropriate laughter, arrogance, and self entitlement spoke volumes . His testimony illustrated his arrogance and entitlement as he revealed how he thought he knew better than law enforcement and took it upon himself to conduct his own “investigation.”
In reality, the investigation had more to do with endearing himself to having an apprenticeship with the Anthony’s private investigator Dominic Casey. It had more to do with his letting police know that he was not changing sides as he testified at Casey’s bail hearing several years ago, than it was about finding poor little Caylee.
Lee clearly fancied himself as some type of detective and relished in his contact with law enforcement and their discussions with him about his sociopathic sister.
Lee admitted on the stand that he in essence lied to Casey during the jailhouse tapes as he lead her to believe he was on her team, when all the while he was about double cross her to get information.
It all makes perfect sense now when we look back at Lee’s behavior on the jailhouse tapes where he was acting “ large and in charge”
As Lee approached the stand, reporters stated that he waved at his sister., who in turn smiled a bright-eyed smile as you see in the photo above. By the way, this is the last screen shot you will see of Casey smiling at Lee after she finds out what he was up to all along.
His wave reflected Lee’s inappropriate behavior in the courtroom. The courtroom is one of the most serious places on this earth. It is no place for waves and meet and greets.
As Lee begins to give his testimony, Casey listens attentively. Instinctively she begins to feel vulnerable as she clutches her throat, the most vulnerable part of our body. She is in essence feeling self protective.
Here we see one of the many times Lee is completely inappropriate with his laughter. When asked if he knew that his father George was throwing up , he begins to laugh. It is a type of disconcerting sadistic behavior on Lee’s part.
As the now infamous jailhouse tapes are reviewed we hear Lee say ” I don;t give a shit about Baez” to which Casey chuckles.
This is very crucial information about Casey who does not reach out to defend her attorney with whom she has been flirting with all these years., Instead she goes along with Lee’s derogatory statement. It shows that she has no loyalty.
Apparently there is no loyalty with brother Lee either, In the above photo we see his lips purse as he holds back when asked if he LIED to Casey, pretending that he was on her side in order to get information.
Lee squirms in his seat and swivels his chair around, He looks away as he ponders whether to lie or tell the truth. Since he is more concerned about his own skin than Casey’s we see him looking up and making the immediate decision to tell the truth.
He doesn’t want to sound too committed to his answer so he qualifies it with an ” I guess so.” There was no guessing here. He clearly betrayed the brother sister bond he once said was unbreakable.
When Casey hears this she is livid, Her lips are pursed and the muscles in her neck are strained. Her eyes glare as she flicks her hand in a gesture that she would like to slap Lee.
Cheney Mason is acutely aware of Casey’s immediate change in her demeanor. He does not want her to create a scene like yelling at Lee and cursing him. He wants her to remain in control so he tries to calm her to reassure her in a comforting gesture by firmly placing his hand and cupping her shoulder.
Casey is livid, She looks down. Her jaw is tight with anger as we can see her clench her jaw and pull her lips forward in anger.
She looks down as she cannot bear to look at her once beloved brother whom she once called “the coolest brother in the world.”
Casey then looks up as she glares at her brother, She is angry beyond words when she discovers that he has betrayed her by working with law enforcement against her . Her anger is revealed body-language wise as you can she in the fist like position she holds her pen.
She places her fist-like hand up to her nose and mouth, , distorting the shape of her nose, This gesture seems to reflect a subconscious desire of literally punching Lee in the nose and mouth for his betrayal.
Here we see Lee looking down and squirming in his seat as he doesn’t want to admit that he has been working with Corporal Edwards.
Here we see Lee very nervous about revealing that he has indeed been working with law enforcement in an attempt to trap his sister. We see him grab the skin on his neck as though he was squeezing a pimple. It is a form of self-mutilation as he knows he was doing something wrong in being double-faced towards his sister. It was painfully embarrassing for him to admit this in front of Casey.
Here we see Lee give a snide smirk and inappropriate laugh as he makes the inappropriate response that law enforcement felt they need to ” keep your enemies close.” This is in reference to his discovering that law enforcement secretly videotaped him in a car during a conversation he had with Tony Lazarro.
Lee had been working with law enforcement to try and gather information up against his sister so he was rather surprised to hear that law enforcement didn’t trust him and put him under surveillance.
Lee could never be trusted int he eyes of law enforcement. As we discovered through his testimony, Lee had the audacity to go into Jose Baez’ private area in his office where he kept privileged information about Casey’s case and copy some receipts pertaining to the case. Lee then turned those receipts over to law enforcement and subsequently they were subpoenaed by the prosecution.
Lee had absolutely no right to do this. It was not his place. It clearly reflects his inappropriate behavior , his entitlement, and how he has no boundaries whatsoever.
His thinking he is above the law and that he is the central figure in information gathering for the case shows how delusional his thinking appears to be.
Lee is very uncomfortable with being outed as a betraying sneak. His discomfort can be seen as she suddenly leans forward and begins to fiddle with his fingers as he purses his lips and cocks his head to the side in embarrassment.
Casey is stunned as she goes from scribbling madly to glaring at her once trusted ally Lee, with whom she once shared a high five. She holds her pen in a position as one would hold a weapon as if to stab someone. No doubt this is what she must feel like doing to Lee.
Casey is angry as you can see by the tension in her lower jaw and by the fact that she has placed her thumb on her chin.
When Lee left the stand, there was no looking at Casey or mouthing the words “I love you” like he once did in the courtroom while he was on the stand . He simply walked by her as though she did not exist. She in turn kept her head down and ignored him as well.
When Judge Perry issued a five minute break and Casey was about to stand up, it was clear that she was pained and devastated by what she learned from Lee’s testimony.
She appeared to be in shock at her brother;s betrayal. As she began to stand up, it was as though she finally digested the gravity of the situation in terms of how Lee was manipulating and deceiving her.
CASEY FINALLY GETS A TASTE OF HER OWN MEDICINE
As we have learned from watching Casey over these past few years, she has spent a lifetime lying, cheating, deceiving, and betraying others.
She constantly did this to her parents, her grandparents, and even to her best friend Amy Huizinga when she forged her checks. She did it to law enforcement when she sent them on a wild goose chase at Universal Studios where she no longer worked.
Now for the first time in her life she saw her own brother lie, cheat, and betray her .
She never had any emotion when she did this to others but now that the shoe is on the other foot so to speak, she is both shocked and livid.
We have just seen a glimpse of karmic justice served.
LEE’S AGENDA AND POSSIBLE BLEAK FUTURE
Lee apparently had his own agenda. He loved that he was having daily contact with law enforcement. It most likely made him feel special and important, when deep down he knew he was none of those things, but rather a wanna be looser.
Lee was only concerned about himself and his future career as a private investigator and being sponsored and working under Dominic Casey.
Knowing this may very well unravel the mystery as to who was on the other phone line talking to Dominic Casey and directing him as to where to find Caylee’s body in the woods.
Did Lee know where the body was? Did he help put it there? Anything is possible with this self entitled renegade who took law enforcement matters into his own hands in doing his own investigation.
Was Lee playing both sides? Did Casey finally confide in him that she did away with Casey? Did she tell him where she threw away Casey’s body? Did he take matters into his own hands in an attempt to locate the body and hide it in an even better place?
It is clear that his goal was not to help law enforcement to find Caylee as he said on the stand. His goal obviously to help himself so that he would have a new career.
We have seen who Lee is as a person, based on his testimony. We have seen that he is a self absorbed, self entitled individual with no boundaries and clearly no loyalty.
Watching him on the stand make one wonder if Casey was indeed telling the truth when she shared that Lee had sexually molested her when she was younger. Did he feel self entitled to have his own sister sexually that he crossed those boundaries?
Since Casey has now seen that there is no loyalty from her brother and that he essentially tried to dupe her and throw her under the bus, it would not surprise me if she began her act of revenge towards Lee.
Perhaps she will now file a legal claim against Lee for allegedly sexually molesting her when she was underage, as there may not be a statute of limitations on a sexual crime.
If this is the case, and he is found guilty of sexually molesting his sister, he may very well be joining his younger sister behind bars.
If he is found to have anything to do with tampering with Caylee’s remains he may also possibly find himself behind bars for that reason.
The fact that he had the audacity to go into an attorney’s private room where the attorney kept privileged information, and copy relevant material and turn it over to the opposing side says it all. It was not Lee’s business nor his place to do such an egregious thing.
I certainly hope that Jose Baez , who by the way did an great job questioning Lee on the stand in uncovering the truth, will hold Lee accountable for his actions and prosecute him to the full extent of the law for tampering with and stealing evidence.
Both Anthony children need to know they are not above the law and that they will have to pay a huge price for their actions.
