During a recent interview one of Casey Anthony’s attorneys stated that he believes his infamous former client “blacked out” her daughter’s death.
“I believe that Casey’s mind, in some dimension, I guess the common word would say ‘snapped.’ She didn’t go crazy by any means — but blackout — completely a blackout — of what went on and what happened… Casey, as we established with an expert witness at the end of the trial, grieved and comprehended differently than anyone else what happened. She went into what I call ‘Casey World.’ She shut it out.”
“She didn’t know what she was doing or what she was saying,” he added. “She knows she did not do this.”
Mason emphasized that Casey was, “close to, bonded to, and loved that child. The child who was perfectly healthy, perfectly clean dressed, well nourished, no instance of any prior injury, no abuse whatsoever. That’s the truth.”
Mason explained that his office still receives communications from people who have conspiracy theories about what happened to Caylee. Mason argued that while those in the court of public opinion use their “imagination” to try to piece together what happened, courts of law use “facts to deal with the truth the best we can.”
