Casey Anthony’s body language was all smiles as she walked into the courtroom and she continued to smile. You could tell she was pretty excited to be in the courtroom as she was taking a lot of deep upper chest breaths are indicative of excitement.
So why is this woman, who is going to be on trial for murdering her daughter smiling and breathing so heavily with excitement ? It is because she is feeling very confident now that a new attorney has been added to her defense team.
CASEY’S NEW ATTORNEY CHENEY MASON HAS BOOSTED HER EGO AND HOPES
Cheney Mason, a long-time Orlando defense attorney, has joined Casey’s defense team and told the court that he would defend Casey at no charge. He then made the following statement to WESH 2 News ,”This case is going to be fun to try, and we’ll walk out of here with Casey in arm.”
With that kind of rhetoric, he no doubt has boosted up his client Casey’s confidence and ego regarding the case, by assuring her that she will be able to walk out a free woman.
My view is that the only way Casey will walk out a free woman is in her dreams. Mr. Mason must think he is the fictions Perry Mason of the popular television series back in the day , who never lost a case.
Cheney Mason is no Perry Mason and he will definitely lose the case in my opinion. When Casey “walks out in arm” it will be on the arm of marshalls who will be escorting her to prison for life or do be executed for her crime.
CASEY RUBS HER HANDS TOGETHER WITH GLEE
Caseycontinued to smile her smug Cheshire cat grin as though she knows something no one else knows, as she rubbed the palms of her hands together rapidly. This is what one does when they are excited or they are anticipating something good to happen.Obviously she has bought into Mason’s false prophecy that she may soon soon be a free woman.
She is also no doubt happy and confident about the fact that they will find her to be indigent so she can get a free ride as she has done her entire life.
JOSE BAEZ MUST HAVE TOLD HER TO STOP THE SMILING
Jose Baez must have noticed that his client was smiling so much and acting way too happy so he whispered something to her like “ stop smiling”.
Casey tried to oblige, but she just couldn’t shake that Cheshire cat grin off her face.
Besides her buying into Mason’s false optimism , she is probably smiling because he is happy that she has been freed from her jail cell for a few hours. She is probably thrilled to experience a change of scenery.
BRUSHING AND GROOMING BEHAVIOR
One of the things we often see with Casey’s body language is her grooming behavior. She is always brushing herself off.
When someone is showing deception they often do this. It is also a signal to psychologically clean one’s self off. Perhaps it’s her way of cleaning herself off for doing the dirty deed of killing Caylee.
This gesture in combination with her smiles indicates that she also subconsciously feels that her new attorney will “clean her off” so that she can leave this Caylee mess behind her.
But Casey and her new attorney are living in an illusion, No one will be able to clean her off. No matter how many times she brushes herself off she is still dirty with the knowledge of what she did to little Caylee.
The constant grooming with her hair indicates Casey’s narcissism of always wanting to look her best. It also speaks to her low self esteem and deep insecurity of being consumed with her looks and appearance , regardless of the situation she is in.
$200,000 FROM ABC, BUT WHAT ABOUT OTHER MAGAZINE, INTERNET,AND TELEVISION OUTLETS?
I can’t believe that ABC was the ONLY media outlet who paid for a licensing fee for Caylees photos . They Something seems strange to me in this regard. Maybe the other outlets paid it to George and Cindy and not to Casey.
Maybe Casey gave George and Cindy Power of Attorney so they can collect the money and not her. Anyway the whole thing is upsetting that this trial will be paid for with taxpayer’s money now that Judge Strickland has officially declared Casey to be indigent, after asking Casy’s defense team to provide an itemized list, of how their attorney’s fees have been spent.
BODY LANGUAGE OF C ASEY”S ATTORNEYS
CHANGE IN JOSE BAEZ’ BODY LANGUAGE
Casey’s lead attorney Jose Barez used to be all over Casey. He was affectionate and often could be seen giving her tender and loving touches. But nor anymore. You can see the distancing taking place, He rarely smiles at her, whereas before he always seem3ed to be smiling at her and with her.
But now, his body language is showing that he;s keeping his distance from her and dealing with her very professionally, something he didn’t do in the past. In fact he was allegedly called out for being too affectionate and hugging his client during their jailhouse visits early on.
I am sure Jose isn’t doing any hugging any more now that the case is beginning to unravel and he no doubt is the only one who is privy to the real truth.
Also look at the way his hand is cupped on her shoulder.
It is a more forceful grip than we have usually seen him do with Casey. His fingers are curved as though he is pressing down on her shoulder . You can also even see the tension in his fingers.
That usually means anger. When you see a hand cupped along with tension in the fingers it says body language wise that the person is not too pleased with the person they are grabbing.
ANDREA LYONS BODY LANGUAGE IS CONSISTENT AS MOTHER HEN
The only attorney on her team who seems to be consistent affection- wise is Andrea Lyons. She has a casue which is anti death penalty, and Casey is representative of that cause.
So she is espewcially compassionate to Casey who may very well be put to death- somethin Andrea is vehemently against.
To me it looks like the case is really wearing on Andrea as she looks more drawn and seems to have lost a good bit of weight.
CASEY IGNORES MOM AND DAD ON THE WAY OUT
Linda Kenny Baden was very professional body language wise as she kept a professional distance when she bent her head down to speak to Casey, who looks diminutive next to all her attorneys.
No doubt Casey is loving all the attention from her lawyers and and loving the time she is spending away from her boring jail cell.
So when it came time to be escorted back to her cell, there were no more smiles, What was also telling as she turned around to head towards the door was that she did not look at her parents.
They certainly looked at her but she did not respond in kind. To me that says she is not longer bonded with them, The time and distance between them has left its mark.
We know from their history and seeing them interact on the jailhouse tapes that there was no love lost between Casey and Cindy. So it is understandable twhy she didn’t look at Cindy.
But she always seemed close to George. So to not acknowledge him at this pount speaks volumes. maybe she got wind of his affair or maybe she is pissed that George told his Zanaida Gonzalez prototype something Casey may have told him in confidence So she is ticked off at George.
Maybe Casey lied to George that it was an accident that went awry and George shared that information with River Cruz and now the whole world knows. Maybe this revelation will screw uo her defense so she is pissed at dad for spilling the beans.
Personally I think she was selling George a bag of BS. Putting tape over a baby’s mouth is not an accident. It is not a game. It is evil and malicious and sadistic. can’t imagine what game was played or what accident occurred that invoved duct tape over anyone’s mouth and nose. It seems to me that this “accident” was done on purpose.
If George really believes that what happened to Caylee was an accident, then he is in extreme denial or is one of the dumbest people on the planet.
