When Casey arrived the courtroom on Day 33, she sat extremely close to Cheney Mason. She leaned over as they huddled for quite a while as Mason spoke with his hand over his mouth. She looked extremely relaxed and confident. As they spoke so closely, I imagined that Mason must have told Casey that the witness they would bring on who would be extremely favorable for Casey’s defense
So when I saw that the defense brought forensic pathologist for over 56 years who did over 60,000 autopsies Dr. Spitz I now understood why Mason and Casey were huddled and why Casey was feeling so confident. He was their most credible witness defense had used to date.
As Dr. Spitz spoke words which seemed to be in Casey’s favor, Casey shook her head yes. She protruded her lower jaw and her devil looking . tension horns on the sides of her head became more prominent . Jeff Ashton tried to impeach the doctor. with his media experience Personally I thought it made the doctor look better. Dr. G has her own TV show and she obviously craves the limelight as well.
Ashton also talked about the doctor’s high profiles from Phil Spector to OJ, I thought it made him seem even more credible.He accused him of breaking the skull , which I believe did not make Ashton look good. Ashton tried to press him on the sediment issue and the doctor stuck to his guns.
During the cross examination, the doctor held his own. Casey was mesmerized and barely moved as he spoke.
When the photo of Casey’s skull and hair was shown, Casey turned away and refused to look at it. She does not move. She does not cry and does not seem upset. Even though Casey is not looking at the photo, she is listening to the graphic testimony, she is not budging. She has no reaction. This is very significant. Once again it supports my theory that she looks at this trial as though it belongs to someone else and not to her.
Casey also holds her head up with her fist which indicates anger on her part. She is angry that she has to listen to this testimony about Caylee’s skull. She received no TLC from attorney Simms.According ti Kathi Belich of WFTV, one juror was laughing at Dr. Spitz’s theory about someone putting duct tape on the skull .This does not look very good.
