There will be surveillance video of Casey and her then boyfriend Tony at the video store which the jury will now see and which the state will present .
When you look at this screen shot of the surveillance tape of Casey and her boyfriend Tony, you see her hand placed strategically on his buttocks, indicating strong sexuality on her part. He leans into her indicating sexuality as well on his part. But he rarely looks directly at her and their movements are rather awkward when they are together.
It seems that the only thing they do have in common is sex.
According to police reports, the salesperson, Johnny French at the Blockbuster video store reported that she rented a film about a kidnapper and a killer called Untraceable and another film called Jumper about a mother who abandons her five year old child.
In my view this is very damning evidence as the films reflect her psyche and state of mind. To even choose such films out of the hundreds of films in the store validates that the issues of kidnapping, abandonment killing were in the forefront of her mind in my estimation. No doubt, in her sick sociopathic mind, the films were soothing to her as she watched actors carry out what she most likely did in real life, kill, abandon, and try to pin what she allegedly did on a kidnapper (Zanny the Nanny).
When interviewed by police the Blockbuster clerk, Johnny French said there was” no emotion or tears” as she rented the films. She appeared as any other customer.
When you look at the surveillance tapes it confirms what Johnny French reported, Casey seems as though she does not have a care in the world. She showed no outward signals of anxiety when deep down she knew that her daughter was dead.
In my view, a jury cannot help but see Casey as cold and heartless and calculating, after the viewing of this video and screenshots. Knowing that your child is dead and acting so nonchalantly will shock jurors as I see it.
Even if Casey should stick by her claim that someone kidnapped Caylee, the fact that she still acted so cool, calm, and collected in the surveillance video speaks volumes.
What mother would act so calm when they knew their child was missing? The answer is, only a mother who wanted her daughter to be gone and out of her life would act that way. Seeing this tape will give the jury a much clearer and comprehensive picture of who Casey really is and what she most likely did to Caylee. www.drlillianglass.com
