I will NOT be posting the “video diary,” or still-photos being released of this woman. Anyone who wants to see them can find them elsewhere.
All I will say about her four minute “diary” is that, although she doesn’t say a word about Caylee in the video, Casey does make a Freudian slip. Casey says that her new computer, camera, and dog (God help the dog) are the first things she has ever been able to “call her own,” “to keep,” “to be hers.”
A psychoanalyst on Nancy Grace commented on this and gave the same opinion that I have always had: One of the reasons Casey killed Caylee is because Caylee was Cindy’s child in many ways. It is widely reported that Cindy was the first person to hold Caylee after she was born. As a friend of Casey’s once said, “Casey was more like Caylee’s older sister than her mother.”
According to Jeff Ashton’s book, Imperfect Justice, right before Caylee disappeared, things were volatile in the home between Casey and her mother, and Cindy wanted to legally take Caylee from Casey.
In Casey’s mind, what better way to get back at her mother? After-all, this is nothing new. A number of men and women kill their children after their spouse threatens to take them away, or they do it merely to hurt the spouse. Casey obviously hates her parents. What better way to hurt them than to kill that which they loved so much?
