To set the record straight and to avoid confusion I have always stood by my body language analysis that River Cruz was credible about having an affair with George Anthony. In fact the surveillance footage to show George was at her home confirms this. George even confirmed on the stand that he had gone to River Cruz’ home several times. The text message from George stating that he needed her in his life also confirms this. I also believe the intimate details she shared with regard to her affair with George and how it ended.
No way do I believe that there was an accident with Caylee that Casey was covering it up as George relayed to River. But I do believe that George did tell her that it was an accident that snowballed out of control. I do not think that River is lying about George saying this to her.
So these two things are the only things I believe with regard to River Cruz.
After listening to her testimony I her found her credible about the affair, However, I was disappointed to hear her say that she went after George. When I spoke to River over the phone she told me that George came after her. Now in court we find that she changed her story. She told me that he targeted her because she looked like Zanny the Nanny with her hair, being Latina. etc. Based on George’s description of Zanny this was certainly plausible.
Then she told me that it was her sister who had a bad criminal record who sold the story to the Enquirer.Now we have come to find out that she was involved as well. In the courtroom we found that River made four thousand dollars. That disturbed me as she said her sister got the money not her.
But what has disturbed me even more is that she is now parading herself all over HLN and the rest of the media. This is a very bad decision on her part. It makes her look like she is just out for her 15 minutes of fame and out to make a buck off of this tragedy. She does not need to say anything else. She needs to put this behind her and move on with her life and get out of the limelight.
Like I told her when she called me, it was a very bad decision to get involved with a married man. This will not be looked upon favorably . I also told her that her lying to LE about not having and affair and then changing her story will always be a mark on her credibility.
But now that she is gallivanting all over the media, it is further destroying her credibility even more. She needs to back away from any press in my view because she is only a mere distraction and sideshow. Now we all know George had an affair. It’s history. But George is not on trial. It is Casey who is on trial for her life and in that regard River nor anyone else is important to this case.
