    Can't look interviewer in the eye when he answers "Nnnnno". Also drawn out hesitiation before he answers.

    And that's all I have to say about that.

    I just didn't see any emotion of any type, he seemed flat emotionally. I too noticed how he looked down when he was answering a question about being involved with Zahra's death or dismemberment. Not that I am any expert or would want to crucify a parent of a murdered child for not crying the way I expected them too, he just seems so disconnected to me.

    head down (in response to a speaker or proposition) head negative, disinterested Head down is generally a signal of rejection (of someone's ideas etc), unless the head is down for a purpose like reading supporting notes, etc. Head down when responding to criticism is a signal of failure, vulnerability (hence seeking protection), or feeling ashamed.
    head down (while performing an activity) head defeat, tiredness Lowering the head is a sign of loss, defeat, shame, etc.

    Detecting Lies

    Liars..
    ...are often worried about being caught or feel guilty, and are hence tense.
    So they...
    ...speak in a higher pitched voice
    ...hesitate.
    ...make speech errors.
    ...move jerkily.
    ...do not 'remember' what they say happened.
    ...say things which are inconsistent.
    ...miss out irrelevant detail.
    ...are vague, missing out detail such as times, places and feelings.
    ...make up stuff.
    ...hesitate as they think about what to say.
    ...forget what they said (and so pause to try and remember).
    ...do not want to answer questions. ...cover the mouth.
    ...clamp the mouth shut, pressing lips together when you mention difficult topics.
    ...try to avoid answering key questions.
    ...digress and wander away from the real subject.
    ...try to distract you with other points of 'interest'.
    ...go along easily if you change the subject.
    ...try to confuse you.
    ...give complex answers.
    ...question minor detail of your questions.
    ...try to appear innocent, acting like a child.
    ...wide open eyes, raised eyebrows.
    ...enunciate speech carefully with more mouth movement.
    ...raise eyebrows in middle of face and pout.
    ...look like they are about to cry.
    ...are worried about what you might ask.
    ...talk a lot to use up the time.
    ...get 'emotional' to try and put you off.
    ...are worried about what they might say.
    ...use language carefully.
    ...pause to think before answering.
    ...give short answers.
    ...use a monotonous tone.
    ...fear eye contact will give the game away.
    ...avoid eye contact, turning eyes or head down or away.
    ...glance away just as they start lying.
    ...blink more often.
    ...rub their eyes more.
    ...fear being detected.
    ...say as little as possible.
    ...try to get away or change the subject.
    ...parrot back your words with a denial.
    ...exaggerate statements about being truthful.
    ...watch you carefully for signs of suspicion.
    ...try to control language.
    ...use precise language.
    ...generalize ('always', 'nobody', etc.).
    ...do not use contractions (saying 'do not', vs. 'don't').
    ...try to control body language.
    ...hold the body rigid.
    ...leak signals then cover up fast.
    ...smile with the mouth but not the eyes.
    ...forget to control the lower body (which may twitch).
    ...'act', using exaggerated movements.
    ...cannot control body language.
    ...send conflicting signals with different parts of the body.
    ...have eye pupil dilation.
    ...shrug and grimace (usually for very brief periods).
    ...give the game away with lower-body signals.
    ...fidget, with hands and feet.
    ...move hands more.
    ...become aroused and speed up.
    ...talk faster.
    ...blink more.
    ...swallow more.
    ...move faster.
    ...feel threatened.
    ...attack, defend or deflect.
    ...place barriers in front of them, from arms to books to tables.
    ...need time to think.
    ...repeat the question.
    ...adjust their clothing.
    ...ramble on about inconsequential things.
    ...has slight delays in speech-body alignment.
    ...make up pictures and see them objectively, from the outside.
    ...try to keep neutral.
    ...describe things as if viewing them.
    ...look in a different place (usually up and often up-right) to where we look when remembering (as opposed to constructing) a picture.
    ...try to distance themselves from events.
    ...use less 'I' statements.
    ...use disclaimers ('you may not believe this, but...').
    ...flatly deny presence or involvement.
    ...get warmer. Sweat.
    ...skin gets redder or damper.
    ...rubbing affected area, particularly palms and head, especially the neck or nose.
    ...know about the above and over-compensate.
    ...appear too relaxed.
    ...keep a 'frozen face' to avoid leakage.
    ...hold themselves still with hands and arms.
    ...stare (blinking less).
    ...go too rigid.
    ...go into excessive detail.
    ...show no discrepancies at all.
    ...wear dark glasses.

    Perry, who was dubbed the "Velvet Hammer" by tweeters,
    went on to say that he believed there was sufficient evidence to sustain a
    first-degree murder conviction
    .

    "Justice has been served in the sense that the jury has spoken but justice will
    finally be served one day by the Judge of
    judges," Perry said during the morning show.
    "And she's going to live, deal with this for
    the rest of her life."

    RIP Caylee Marie

    While it was a very short interview..I picked up a lot of the cues from the above posted 'Detecting Lies' list. Wide-eyed, child-like, dilated pupils etc.

    OMG ... "ever fill the hole left by my daughter ..."

    That phrase, surely unintentional and subconscious in it's double meaning, absolutely gives me the shudders.

    BBM.

    At that point, I would have asked him, "Mr. Baker, what do you feel about the fact that your daughter's remains were left in a hole, and a lot of people think you and your wife might have something to do with it?"

    It would be interesting to see the body language such a question would produce.

    We now have the "clean cut " boy look, no facial hair,a plain blue shirt w/ a nice clean white t shirt underneath, compliments of ? nevermind you know who.

    Actually I think the other Ts he had fit better.

    New image Adam.

    Speech hasnt changed much, but I did notice he didnt mention he had to work today,he looks pretty rested and Im sure that due to the fact he didnt have to work today..

    As far as Adam wanting to have a normal life, that's scary, does he really know what normal is, or does he think his previous normal is normal?

    This is scary, I really think the people in Hickory are NOT safe with him running around.

    Sorry, but Adam's mom gives me the creeps, holding on to his arm & saying people just don't understand. She's one of those moms who will stand by her boy no matter what he has done (& I bet she's glad Elisa's out of the picture for now too)

    I deleted a similar post three times...after seconds of searching for phrasing, he, perhaps, leaks---(shoulder shrug, voice trailing) "to ever fill the hole left by my daughter."

    PR makeover-completely clean-shaven, dark collared shirt, long sleeved (tattoos not visible).
    Also, hands remained folded on lap.

    He is very soft-spoken. Voice is laid-back...very disarming quality about it. His facial expressions (anxious) belie his calm voice. First view, was struck how out of sync they seem with each other.
