Forget the profile piece, though -- check out the comments, particularly the comments by a poster calling herself "Marcia Neil." Now, there are quite a few comments to wade through, so bear with it. It's very interesting, IMO. As a professional who works in the mental health field, "Marcia Neil"'s comments are extremely consistent with psychosis. Note, this is different than delusional, as delusions are a fixed belief (which, okay, sometimes are nonsensical -- like, sometimes a person genuinely believes the moon is made of green cheese, etc). It's very nebulous, making the distinction between delusions and psychosis sometimes, so I'll just leave it at in my experience persons suffering from psychosis, who overtly demonstrate their symptoms, often show more disorganized and nonsensical thought patterns and beliefs (although they may make sense to the individual in their own mind). Persons with fixed delusions often present very believable ideas. The main difference is that psychosis can respond to medication; delusions do not.

    I thought Dr. Juliann Mitchell handled the poster's comments with extreme kindness, for what it's worth.

    I'm sure this profile has been posted in the media threads at some point, but I actually found it by accident, when I was reading an article on former Cook County Illinois judge Thomas J. Maloney. Go figure!

    Ol' Marcia does seem a tad "off", no doubt. We used to have a poster here on this very thread who I believe was psychotic- I am not saying that in any offensive manner, I am saying it because if people read the posts from this person I think they may see it as well. In this situation when the poster was spoken to when people resonded, it fuled the delusion and future responses would be even more out there. But when ignored he simply moved on.

    It was very sad to see how others treated this poster even after pm's sent letting others know that this poster may not be trying to be difficult but may be psychotic and have no control over it.

    I forgot about the poster here! Once you see this you can spot it, and in person you can feel the difference. KC is cold and calculating and her actions are all about what is self serving. It gets confused because she is not the sharpest tool in the shed but she is not delusional, no.

    Call me crazy () but I really think they are our future in mental health treatment, Anti-psychotics. Once they can get all the little "bugs" out of 'em of course- they have way too many side effects for too many people other than your mood/brain disordered, to be willing to take them for very long. But I can see them working for so many different illnesses and IMO other than Seroquel none of the atypicals even really make ya tired. OCD, phobia's, Tourette syndrome.. it would be heaven- no more Orap or Haldol. Uggh! Do they already use them in OCD or Tourettes? They should!

    LOL Listen to me- what am I, Manic?! WTF, Laura! LMAO!

    (I re-read what I wrote to you and started laughing out loud (for real) at myself and went to get rid of it rather than posting it but then figured maybe you'd like the laugh as much as I just did!)

    That said, I DO believe Casey was a victim of her upbringing. Sorry, but I really do. I can understand why she may have harbored anger/rage; its just a shame she took it out on Caylee.

    I also believe she did know right from wrong, EXCEPT, maybe not in that exact instant when the deed was done, IF she did the deed, and there wasn't another whole scenerio which I believe is also possible. IF Casey killed Caylee in a fit of rage, I believe its possible she went temporarily insane. No, I don't want her walking the street again, but I can honest to God understand what may have happened when and IF she killed her child.

    My opinion only
    I believe her upbringing "enabled her further" with her actions, as opposed to blaming it on her upbringing. There are too many mulitple children families in which all the children are abused and perhaps only one goes on to be a problem in society. Thus, it is complicated to blame upbringing when the remaining children are good citizens of society. I hope that makes sense. When each one of us have our own brains and know right from wrong, we are responsible for our own actions.

    Our backgrounds and history and trauma's that we've experienced really shouldn't play a factor in the "Act of Murder/ or Crime"...it can play a factor in how one perceives others, etc. (example: a neglected child may possess feelings of insecurity, depression, withdrawl, etc....and sometimes all of their lives. However, that same child knows right from wrong...so if they murdered another human...how can one blame that on their upbringing?)

    There are many folks who suffer tragedies, mental illness, personality disorders, post traumatic stress, hardships and pain....and they do not go on to commit an act of murder....and in a lot of cases...never an act of any crime. Hope this makes sense.

    Blackwatch,

    I don't buy the "Temporary insanity" defense either. Point being..if she did have a breakdown and killed Caylee even if by accident in a fit of rage...or an overdose of chloroform. Once the body "comes back down to normal"....it would have been reported. One who had temporary insanity would not have carried on for 31 days of partying, laughing, etc. A good example of temporary insanity is Andrea Yates.

I know what it feels like to be psychotic and it isn't fun. I didn't feel like going out partying with my friends. You couldn't get a smile on my face if you paid me a million dollars. It is one of the most terrifying things I have ever gone through and it makes me a little upset when people refer to KC as psychotic. She is not psychotic.

    Sorry about the life story.
    Excellent post and very accurate. Not everyone who has mental illness or disorders commits crimes of murder...or crimes, in general. I'm sorry to learn you have suffered with psychosis and I have always believed it is much more common than people want to share. Especially with my firm belief in post partum psychosis. Hormones amuck can play a big role in this and it can happen to anyone. Thanks for sharing.

    Possible, but not always. Sometimes the seizures are very infrequent. We don't know for sure if she has had more and didn't tell anyone, or didn't know herself if she had more. As for physical symptoms...we also don't know if she suffered from headaches more frequently, etc. I'm not saying that she has a brain tumor, I am however saying it should be ruled out.

    It depends on what you are using in your google search. Try using the words "George Anthony investigation" as opposed to the deposition. A lot will come up. Same with Cindy, etc. You'll also find a lot of the actual video's on Youtube and TruTv. If your seeking the actual documents, try here:
    http://www.docstoc.com/search/George-Anthony/.

    This link, while long, has a all of the documents on the left side in a boxed column:

    http://74.125.47.132/search?q=cache:...lnk&cd=1&gl=us

    Hope this helps.

    It has been bugging me...so I'm going to put it 'out there' for discussion. KC has an 'episode' at a party where she gets exceptionally upset when she sees BSnow. Supposedly, she had recently had a miscarriage of his child...according to her (as reported by AmyH I think). I wondered if maybe she did have a miscarriage and was suffering from PPD. I'm not defending her in the slightest degree. I just think the defense might latch onto it, and I thought we should look back and see what the timeframe was.

    UPDATE:
    It was at the 'No Clothes Party' on 5/25/08 that she had the 'episode'. AH doesn't say when KC said she actually had the miscarriage. Since she got so upset, I just thought it may have been recent. I think I read other stuff about it elsewhere too. I'll keep looking. She was probably lying through her teeth and faking the episode for attention. <--most likely scenario.
    KC found her pot of gold in others pockets.

    Interview with Pat Brown, criminal profiler, about Casey's psychopathy right now on Today Show. VERY interesting. People in other time zones should be able to see this in the next hour or so. msnbc.com puts up links to these interviews within an hour or so.

    Excellent interview! Interesting insight into Casey's mind.

    I'll come back and post the link as soon as it's up, or if somebody else catches the link, please post.

    Since this thread is about the family, my gut reaction to Cindy is "that woman is evil."

    i think casey grew up in an environment where evil was always around. science says a kind act makes even strangers who merely witness the act feel better; unfortunately, i would guess an act of evil would have the opposite effect.

    How or Why is Casey evil? I personally think it can be purely organic, purely environmental or anywhere on the scale between. She will be studied for the next 50 years.

    In my personal experience, I have only met one person who was "born" evil. The rest were, in my opinion, "made" evil. I have only met one child that seemed to be "born wrong" and seemed scary evil. I would not have been surprised to learn that child had an organic default in her brain. Her parents were extremely kind and compassionate. I do not get the kind and compassionate vibe from Cindy in the least....


    My main point is, casey's # 1 role model / influence would have been dear old mom.

She already exhibits narcissistic tendencies like her mother. I think Casey is a product of nature and nurture. Her inherited (genetic) characteristics, combined with the environment she grew up in created the person she is today. Someone else correctly called it "the perfect storm."
    agree 100%!
