    Misty's Body Language

    Let's go out on a limb here. I've enjoyed reading about KC's body language in the Caylee Forum and want to try the same discussion here. From day one in this case when I watched Misty's first interview, I felt her body language was telling us she was being deceptive. There are a lot of resources on the internet that describe body language and perhaps we can get some clues to when she is truthful and when she is not, based on interviews.

    Please link which interview you are describing so we can all see what you are seeing.

    Also, if anyone posts about her hair style, clothes, cigarette smoking or things of that nature, I will delete it without warning. Let's focus on how her eyes move, whether her face turns red, things like that.

    There are some interesting resources on the Caylee thread if you'd like to check them out.

    I'm interested in seeing what you all think! I have my personal observation opinions, but I haven't done any research at all.

    In ALL of Misty's interviews, she has one habit which is consistent: She sticks her chin out as she speaks. It is an act of defiance, a "you can believe me or not, I don't care" gesture. Link ...... everywhere

    Interesting observation! I'm going to go and Google that not because you didn't have a link, but because I'm dang curious! LOL

    Lips moving = body language = LIES...JMO

    Here is something I found about the chin:

    Jutting

    The chin can be used as a subtle pointing device and a small flick of the head may give a small signal that only people in the know are likely to notice.

    Jutting out the chin towards a person exposes it and says 'Go on, I dare you, try to hit me and see what happens!' This can thus be a signal of defiance, if not towards the other person then instead towards some situation or person in the conversation.

    Jutting may also exposes the teeth and is a thus a threat to bite which may be added to an aggressive display.

    Pointing at a person with the finger is a threatening act. Doing it briefly with the chin is more covert and can thus be an insult.

    I have to agree with you there! But, is there a part of her description of that night that is the truth? Can her body language give us an idea?

    Also, what about interview with her and Ron when she was asked about why her story changed and she said "I don't know".

    Her defiance onthe Today Show interview seems to come when she talks about the new detective being rude to her...

    When she states "I don't know" as to WHY there were inconsistences in her statement she looks like a lost puppy dog, and looks to Ronald Cummings to offer an explanation.
    That interview revealed that Ronald Cummings was the one who had been telling her what to say and WHY her story changed...JMO

    Ron's posture in the freeze frame shot on this video speaks to a defiance. But using the link (same link I had, Kimster!) Kim provided, if you'll look at Misty's hands in that same freeze shot, they're trying to hide. Hiding hands:
    Hiding

    Hands are often used in communication and hiding the hands may indicate a desire not to communicate or not to collaborate, saying 'I don't want to talk with you' or 'I do not agree with you'.
    This may be done in a deliberate gesture of defiance, such as stuffing hands in pockets. Liars may hide their hands in fear that they will give themselves away.
    Hiding hands may also be a position of listening, sending the message 'I do not want to talk because I want to listen to you.'
    Putting hands in pockets or behind the back can also be due to just feeling relaxed and not needing to talk.

    Misty strutting out of the courthouse with another gal, perhaps Lindsey and a child in toe fligging her cigarette really got to me. A sense of entitlement.

    That was out of the Sheriff's office, and it was a strut, and it was smoking as she went, knowing she's underage for smoking, walking on LE's property.

    What I don't understand is why a young couple dating/living together just a few months would be comfortable with two children in the bed with them.

    This is an odd bunch Beatrice. I think it is hard for us understand them because they are so different. I bet misty didn't like it one bit. She may have been the one prompting them to sleep in separate rooms. I wonder how that went over...I expect not well.

    On second thought, I bet the kids didn't sleep with ron. The bed could have been staged..oh heck, I am getting myself confused...lol

    Seems there could be alot of jealousy/resentment between Misty & Haleigh.

    I'm going to check Eyes for Lies and see if there was an analysis of Misty's behavior on there like there was of RC.

    Oh, and noting the chin jutting? Fantastic observation!
