Now that Casey Anthony’s hair is very long and past her mid back, she appears to have a new body language ritual.
First she where she first grooms the left side and then stops for a few seconds.
Then she grooms the right side. She did this ritual at least 20 times .
Now that there is a computer video monitor situated right in front of her, it is as though she has her own personal mirror to groom herself, which she did constantly.
LIP GLOSSING MOTION BODY LANGUAGE
That is not all she did. Casey also did her lip glossing motion where she but not as often as we have see her do this in the past.This is where Casey rubs her lips with her finger as though she is applying lip gloss.
These two behaviors hair rooming and lip glossing ,s are very significant in light of what we have learned about how important Casey’s looks are to her parents George and Cindy.
George has often referred to Casey by how he thinks she looks- “Beautiful!” He even spend time in one letter telling her to be careful because she was gaining weight. He gave her hints about how to exercise so she won’t get fat.
Likewise her mother Cindy mentions her appearance in several letters and tell her how beautiful she looks in court.
No doubt there must have been a huge emphasis on Casey’s appearance and her looking good while she was growing up. This may explain why she seems so insecure about her looks that she has to constantly groom herself.
We saw her insecurity about her looks during the jailhouse tapes when George called her beautiful as well. At that time , Casey didn’t think she looked so beautiful and began to make excuses which negated her father’s comment about her looks.
Perhaps if both George and Cindy would have put more focus on Casey’s developing her intellect, good morals, and proper values when she was growing up instead of focusing on her appearance , she wouldn’t be in this predicament today.
CASEY’S COURTROOM DEMEANOR
There is no doubt in my mind that Jose Baez has been coaching his client as to how to behave in the courtroom. He has definitely instructed her to not laugh or smile. For the most part she sat still, expressionless and stoic.
What was clearly interesting was the look of ambivalence and disdain she quickly leaked out when Judge Belvin Perry entered the courtroom and Casey was forced to stand up.
Her facial expression says everything she no doubt feels about the Judge. When someone pulls their lip and cheek to the side it usually means they aren’t thrilled or happy to see the person. It signifies a negative reaction towards the person. No doubt Casey is not too thrilled seeing Judge Perry’s no nonsense approach towards her.
I imagine she now regrets that she and Baez got rid of Judge Strickland. I’ll bet wishes she was standing n front of him now instead of No Nonsense Judge Perry.
JUDGE BELVIN PERRY’S NO NONSENSE BOUNCE
On a Judge Perry note, I have observed that whenever he says something that is not particularly pleasant like stating that the state is seeing the ultimate sanction against Casey Anthony, the death sentence, describes his rules and what he expects, or he reprimands the defense or state, I notice that he does a little discomfort bounce where you see him fidget in his seat slightly bouncing up and down in his chair up on the bench.
While he never reveals his displeasure in his vocal tone and facial expression which always remain cool and collected, he certainly reveals it in his body language.
CINDY’S REALITY CHECK THAT CASEY MAY GET THE LETHAL NEEDLE
As soon as Judge Perry stated that the state is seeing the ultimate sanction against Casey, the death sentence, Casey sat there without emotion as though she was hearing someone speak about someone other than her. But the person do did get what the judge said and processed that information loudly and clearly was Casey;s mother Cindy.
That is when Cindy put one hand over her nose and mouth and held on to her wrist. There is no doubt that this a a reality moment for her when she heard what her daughter was headed for. Obviously she knew this before, But to hear it again is till shocking.
While I usually have very little sympathy for Cindy, unlike my dear friend Nancy Grace, who relates to Cindy as a mother, I have to admit that watching Cindy’s facial expression at that moment was a bit heart wrenching. There is no doubt that she contributed to Casey’s demise in my view, but just watching her soak in the realization that there was a good chance her daughter would die by lethal injection (words Judge Perry spoke) was sad to see.
Maybe that is why she is going around saying such absurd things like she called 911 and spoke of the smell of a dead body only to get the cops there quickly. Her talking about Caylee sightings well after the body of Caylee was discovered also speaks to Cindy trying to do her best to keep her daughter away from the lethal needle.
CINDY’S ODD STRANGULATION BODY LANGUAGE GESTURE
In my three decades of body language analysis I have NEVER seen anyone make the the body language gesture seen above. When Jose Baez was whining about Casey’s privacy being violated in terms of her videotaped jailhouse visits and the letters George and Cindy wrote being exposed, Cindy did something very odd and very disturbing She stretched out her arms in front of her and interlocked her fingers, Then she began to do a pulsating motion with her interlocked fingers . It looked like she was doing a choking like behavior.
The bottom line was that the body tell was one indicating hostility if not violence. It no doubt said it all in terms of her subconscious feelings. Perhaps subconsciously she feels like strangling those who have revealed the videos and the letters. What was most disturbing is the length of time that she exhibited that behavioral gesture and the expression on her face- rage! You could even see the tension in her cheek muscles which is often associated with rage, anger, and hostility.
WAS GEORGE’S NO SHOW IN COURT A REFLECTION OF HIS GUILT FOR ALLEGEDLY SEXUALLY MOLESTING CASEY?
The more I observe of George’s behavior the more sickening It becomes to me .
With his no show he demonstrated how full of it he is when he wrote to case to Casey “No Matter What”…umpeen times in various letters. In writing those words he clearly wanted Casey yo know thathe loved her unconditionally “no matter what” she did. He was saying that she would stick by her thick or thin no matter what she did
But those were all empty words. His no show in court indicated that there was no such thing as unconditional love and” no matter what” as far as Casey is concerned.
What Casey did actually mattered. She accused both him of sexually molesting her. She revealed this to a jailhouse friend in jailhouse letters.
Did George really mean to write Casey that he would love her no matter what UNLESS she spilled the family secrets? Is that why he didn’t show up? Is it because he was angry with Casey for doing so?
His no show is clearly passive aggressive behavior. If he is not guilt of doing what she said, why didn’t he write in the last letter he sent to her that he was furious at what she did in lying about the molestation. Why didn’t he set the record strait?
If he didnt want to say anything so the defense could use it as an excuse for her not getting the death penalty, his no show is even worse.
It can possibly make some think that he had something to hide and that what Casey said was one of the few truths she told.
If George didn’t molest his daughter, why not come clean and immediately admit it in a press conference or in an exclusive interview with Fox 35.He had no qualms about talking to Fox 35 in the past. In fact he read what was most likely part of his book proposal to them called Under the Microscope- where he blamed everyone else but Casey for his plight.
Why not speak up now and blame Casey for her false accusations if he never touched her sexually? After all, she was obviously willing to throw him and Lee under the bus.
If he doesn’t put a stop to it now and openly say he didn’t molest her, many people will assume that what Casey is saying is true. By not speaking out immediately, it will be too little too late of indeed he ever denies it.
It is not a normal reaction for a person who did not molest someone. If you were accused of something that horrific and you didn’t to it, you would scream from the highest mountains and to every media venue that would listen that this was a bold faced LIE!
George’s silence may be speaking volumes. Having said that, Casey still cannot be trusted when it comes to telling the truth.But if it is true, what is to prevent Casey from filing criminal charges against George and Lee for sexually molesting her when she was an under age girl.
Watching Casey and her dysfunctional family is like watching the worst possible soap opera. Every day there is some new high drama and repulsive revelations. www.drlillianglass.com
