Casey Anthony’s Top Ten Lies
Those that may be following the Casey Anthony case may have differing opinions as to her guilt or innocence but one thing is clear: Casey Anthony calmly lied to police, investigators and her own family countless times.
Casey, whose daughter Caylee was found murdered in 2008, is now on trial for her daughter’s murder. The story has garnered much national attention since it broke a few years ago. If convicted, Casey could face the death penalty.
Casey’s defense has attributed her incessant lying to the abuse she suffered at the hands of her brother and father. See what Eyes for Lies thinks about the situation in her blog post.
Could Casey Anthony be a pathological liar? Its definitely possible.
Dr. Matsumoto states that pathological liars do exist. They lie quite often and are difficult to detect because they often don’t know they’re lying or believe themselves. However, they are often confronted with contradictory facts (such as in the case of Casey Anthony).
Unfortunately, we don’t know why pathological lying occurs. In some situations, some of it may be cultural, as in some cultures it’s expected and appropriate to lie in situations that Americans don’t usually appreciate.
Take a look at this great video that ABC has compiled of “Casey Anthony’s Top Ten Lies”. Listen to Casey Anthony’s tone of voice, her speech flow and rhythm. Her persistence is both disturbing and troubling. In Casey Anthony’s case, its almost as if lying is easier for her than telling the truth.
