Casey Anthony Book

In the new tell-all book, Casey’s attorney Jose Baez writes that the detectives should have realized that Casey was someone with ‘serious mental health issues.’

According to the new book Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story, Casey Anthony — the Florida mother who was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee — had mental health problems that lead to her habit of lying.

In attorney Jose Baez book about the trial, he wrote how the detectives should have realized Casey had built a “fantasy world,” and her lies were signs of someone with “serious mental health issues.”

He writes how Casey deceived the detectives and even too them to Universal Studios where she falsely claimed she had a job. Baez concluded that they “should have stopped and realized, ‘Wait a minute, we’re not dealing with someone who is playing with a full deck.'”

Casey was acquitted of first-degree murder but convicted of four misdemeanor counts of lying to investigators. She is serving probation for an unrelated charge at an undisclosed location in Florida.

The book is scheduled for release on July 3.

Hey Baez… I won’t be buying your book. What deal did you do with Satan to achieve your price for fame. Go to your grave knowing you got a child killer off the hook.

That’s right, blame law enforcement? How stupid! And it is obvious Casey is not dealing with a full deck, but that does not change how law enforcement handled the situation.

I give a ton of credit to the cops and everyone else that had to get involved in the pathetic and dysfunctional world of Casey Anthony.

Oh come on, she is not that crazy. She is not schizophrenic and managed to relatively function in the world. She did have issues like most of us. She was a chronic liar, BUT ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE FOR HER DEMENTED AND HORRIFIC BEHAVIORS AGAINST HER LITTLE DAUGHTER.
