Casey Anthony wore yet another tight-fitting pullover sweater with sleeves that were way too long for her on Day 4 of the court proceedings.
Just as her red V necked pullover was inappropriate courtroom attire last week, the same is true for for this week as she wore a light purple turtle neck pullover was equally inappropriate. Since Cindy is no clotheshorse as we have seen throughout these past two and a half years, I would not be surprised if it is she who is bringing these sweaters and blouses and jackets to court in the mornings so that Casey does not have to show up in her jail outfit. The bottom line is that these sweaters are unacceptable.
The sweater deal didn’t work for the Menendzez brothers who were convicted of killing their parents. The brothers were usually seen at trial dressed in baby blue cashmere sweaters. It didn’t work for themn and it wont work for Casey either.
By now Casey is so used to her jail house attire that she acts like a fish out of water in her new sweaters. She continues to pull and tug at them as she grooms herself in her ritualistic manner. What is really poignant about this picture is her grooming at the neck are and pulling on her collar .
We especially have seen her do this this neck grooming behavior during these recent courtroom proceedings. While sociopaths can’t seem to show genuine emotion on their faces, it often leaks out in their body language. Did you ever hear the expression “getting hot under the collar?”
Well, here is an example of it and case in point, Physiologically when people feel uncomfortable – nervous, agitates or even angry their blood pressure rises as does their temperature and they literally feel “hotter” as their autonomic nervous system takes over. This is a huge tell in body language speak as to what is really going on with a person;s emotions. Even of they are not showing it on their face, they involuntarily show in on their neck.
Just as people can feel hot under the collar, they can also suddenly feel cold as the autonomic nervous systems reacts in a roller coaster type of way as they body may go to both extremes before it regulates itself. So when we often see people getting a sudden chill in the courtroom, it often correlates to some emotional reaction to what has occurred when hearing someone’s testimony.
As you can see in the photo above, Casey is trying to cover her hands with her way too long sweater sleeves in order to get some warmth. She has the option of rolling up the sleeves, but she doesn’t, Instead she covers herself. This may also be a form of self comforting and literally hiding her hands she most likely used perhaps killing Caylee in my view.
Having heard her mother’s testimony has only validated how Casey feels about Cindy. She can’t stand her. The same is true for her father and her brother Lee. Now that she heard that her beloved Lee betrayed her by lying to her in making her think he was on her team when in fact he was trying to get information for law enforcement because he was on his own team- the team of getting a PI job, Casey can never smile at her family again. She has in essence cut them off completely as far any reaction to them. Any future tears or semblance of emotion will be contrived as she has none towards any on them.
They are dead to her. As a result it will not be unusual to see this above dead eyed creepy cold stare whenever they appear. Lately, this dead eyed cold stare with most everyone who has testified seems to be prevalent as far as her facial language is concerned.
The only change in Casey’s demeanor when the dead eyed cold stare is not prevalent is when she is in flirting mode. Apparently as we have seen Casey can;t seem to relate to anyone unless she is flirting with them or being coquettish.
Her grabbing Jose Baez led under the table when she heard testimony that he wasn’t liked, was in my view a sexual flirtation in nature. Who in the word touches any person’s thigh or knee or leg or anything below the belt unless the communication is of an intimate nature. It was Casey’s sexually tinged way of comforting Baez when he heard the unflattering remark made about him.
It is reminiscent of what Cindy did when She and George and Lee were on one of the morning shows Cindy had her hand on Lee’s lap during the interview which raised a lot of eyebrows as it was highly inappropriate in my view. So was Cindy’s constant rubbing of Lee’s back at the Caylee memorial ceremony.
As I have said repeatedly” The apple does not fall far from the tree” when it comes to Cindy and Casey’s exhibiting similar behaviors.
We saw it in the courtroom when Casey surprising grabbed Cheney Mason’s shoulder. It appears that the only way she can relate to a man is physically. And what in the world is she doing by reaching out and touching her lawyers?
They can certainly touch her as a gesture of comfort or reassurance. In fact a jury would relate to that and may even find it a gesture of compassion. But when she touches them to me it is a gesture of power and control in an attempt to seduce. To a jury it will be perceived as flirtatious and provocative.
