Amazing liar. One lie after another. If caught in a lie, she quickly makes up another one. No Conscience. Psychopath. If her defense is built on a story she tells and there is no hard evidence, she can just forget about anybody believing her. I guess that’s the price that is finally paid, even if a truth slips out, nobody will believe it.
I do find it hard to believe that her family did not know she was a serial liar. Cindy testified that she believed Casey because she had never given her any reason to disbelieve her. I don’t believe that. They were probably all co-dependant, covering for Casey on the one hand and accusing her on the other. The only thing I see that Cindy did wrong was that she didn’t take the child from Casey instead of threatening to take her. She might be alive today.
Some of her friends and boyfriends testified that there was a bond and love between Casey and Caylee, and this was supposed to indicate that Casey was a good mother. To the contrary, I think that is against her. It only makes it agonizingly sad to think how much a child depends on the care of a mother, and how horrifying the betrayal when the care turns to harm.
