After listening to Casey’s jailhouse tapes where she is speaking to her parents and separately to her father, it is now understandable why her parents wanted so much to believe their daughter. If you just listened to these tapes without looking at her body language, Casey sounds very credible. She is fluent and rarely hesitates.She sounds bright and articulate and is very convincing. But if you look at her body language while she is speaking, it tells completely different story.
Below are some of her statements along with tells of deception.
I’ve been asking every question I could possibly think of ( looks away shakes head no)
It’s the truth that’s all we want. (shoulder shrug)
I know she’s Ok (shakes head no)
Even on her birthday the entire day (flips her hair)
The only letters I’ve gotten have been very positive (shoulder shrug)
I want Caylee more than anyone can understand (shakes head no)
I told you everything ( shakes head no)
Little Caylee is like you and I (chuckles and shakes her head no)
All I want is to see Caylee( said with no emotion and shakes head no)
I wanna be there when she comes home (shrugs shoulder)
These are only a few of the signs she isn’t telling the truth about what she is really feeling. She speaks in a monotone a flat affect when discussing Caylee and trying to help find her.
CASEY EMOTES ONLY WHEN IT IS ABOUT HER
We see an overly confident cocky bratty girl who essentially runs her parents. She runs the show with jer charm, manipulation and anger and good looks. It is so easy to see why her family and friends and boyfriends wanted to belive this confident sounding, pretty girl.
We hear her parents walk on eggshells with her. They use soft tones and terms of endearment to appease her. She seems to react well to that tone at times. But other times we hear a harshness and an anger in her tone. It is as though there is a bipolarity in her speech pattern. Taht does not mean that I am diagnosing her as being bipolar. She may very well be bipolar among among other diagnosis like a sociopath, but only proper testing and a formal diagnosis by a psychiatrist could determine that for sure.
The other thing that I noticed in George and Cindy’s communication behavior with Casey is that they give her agreat deal of power. They tell her that she is the boss and she is in charge. Perhaps it is their way of trying to get informaiton out of her. There are alot of “I love you’s” and tender words from her parents.
The truest sense of emotion displayed by Casey was when her father spoke of how people were so supportive of finding Caylee and about the work by charity volunteers. at times Casey was beaming a smile with pride. But then she would begin to cry real tears and the she would get angry. Casey broke down with real tears and real grief emergerd as she knew Caylee would never come home, despite her father’s efforts.
Casey did display genuine emotion when it came to discussing herself and her needs as you can see by some of her statements below.
Cindy says “Dad boiled up at the media Casey says(Yah I heard (laughs)
(to Cindy) Do You understand how I feel? I’ve been here a month. (angry)
To George you says to Casey ” you are the boss “- Not anymore. No I haven’t been since I got here (angry)
Can someone let me speak? No one’s letting me speak. (angry)
I’ve spent the day all alone in bed with my head under the covers (crys)
I read my bible almost the entire day, It was miserable (angry)
Cindy The latest is Casey drowned in the pool. Casey( Surprise surprise) (sarcasm)
My entire life has been taken from me (anger)
I have no one to comfort me but myself ( sadness)
For this entire time I sat in my room I haven’t been mad once but this one time –I;m so hurt by everything I don’t know what to say. (anger) NO remorse
After listening to the tapes , we can see how selfish and narcissistic Casey a person Casey seems. She doesn’t seem to have feelings for anyone but herself.
It is heart wrenching to see how much Casey’s parents really do love Casey and Caylee. Afer listening to the tapes it doesn’s seem that George knows anything about Caylee’s death at the beginning stages. I can’t imagine him acting this genuine and concerned if he knew Caylee drowned and if he had some involvement. He seems to be too desperate for answers. Both he and Cindy seem desperate to find Caylee. As they consitently speak to Casey in such loving terms, the hope that she will reveal a kernel of information as to where Caylee is located.
These tapes are the most revealing of all the information thus far as far as the drowning of Caylee and the alleged collusion of her father. At this point it seems that all he wants is answers. Casey’s cockiness and anger George’s deference to her does not seem like the communicaiton dynamic where Casey would protect her father in any way. As we see from her dialogue, the only person she would protect is herself .
As we see more and more of the evidence presented in such a systematic way, we learn that things aren’t looking too good for Casey. here seems to be less and less reasonable doubt that she caused Caylee’s demise. www.drlillianglass.com
