Expert Statement Analysis on Casey
This is very interesting and I hope it is ok to post the link. Its just something to think about and may be fun to pick apart.
This gentleman has worked on such cases as Scott Peterson, OJ simpson, Jon Bonet Ramsey, Susan Smith, etc.
It looks like he is now working on the Caylee Case tooo!!!
He teaches interviewing techniques to Law Enforcents.
At the very least, it is a very interesting science of how to detect deception in defendants written and verbal statements.

VERY interesting, indeed!
It certainly confirms what most of us have been thinking --- Casey has been lying thru her teeth, right from the start.

Thanks. It is interesting! Note how he compared her answer to Bidens answer on being the VP and now he is. I just wish this guy would continue with more. Wonder if he could evaluate the 400 pages of interviews like that!

I think his deductions from speech patterns are very interesting, and possibly they are *right on* in a majority of cases, but I personally would never feel very confident in relying on these sorts of speech "clues". For example, I have read somewhere that using the word "honestly" or the term "to be honest" in a sentence is an indication that the speaker was not telling the truth at some point in the conversation and is now saying they ARE telling the truth. But the problem with this is, that a whole lot of people just use "honestly/to be honest" as speech pattern HABITS.
As another example, and this from my own life ... people tend to think that when someone is not meeting their eyes, the person is lying or being otherwise evasive. I grew up in a culture where it was considered impolite to make direct eye contact most of the time, members of that culture carried on conversations while looking at other things around them or looking at the ground, etc. I picked up this cultural norm from them at a very young age. It caused me problems later on, and I went years wondering why people kept not believing me when I was telling the truth. Then I ran across and read an anthropological article written about the culture I grew up in, and found out about the direct-eye-contact-is-rude thing. Took some work, and it was hard to do at first and made me very uncomfortable, but I managed to change that in myself so that I could look directly into someone's eyes when speaking to them.
So, not sure how totally valuable this type of deduction is.

I'm Sorry, Etc.
What I do recognize/agree with, is that any of those can "stalling" phrases, used to buy time. I think we often, unconsciously, just repeat the question, thus giving the answerer more time to think of an answer. To be fair, sometimes the answerer asks out of habit, and if given a minute, can formulate the question and answer in their mind without repetition. I think this might happen when someone has something on their mind and wasn't really paying attention to the person who asked the question!
I have bpd family members, immediate and distant, who Casey reminds me of, and they do this constantly. Often to think of a lie, I'm sure! I have gotten very good at not repeating the question - gotten into the habit of not repeating, I guess you could say! It's amazing that if you can stand the few moments of (awkward) silence, you will find you don't need to repeat the question!
Overall, I do view the analysis of "I'm sorry?" and the like as stalling and it probably needs to be analyzed in the context of the situation, which I think this guy did accurately!

I say "I have no idea" a lot. I never thought it would be looked at as deception! Eek! I don't think I'm being deceptive when I say it. Hmmmm. People ask me questions at work and I say that a lot, because I really have no idea!
