Beware The Casey Anthony Death Stare

By Robert Paul Reyes

I love movies about serial killers and deviant personalities, but not even the Hannibal Lecter films could have psychologically or emotionally prepared me for the Casey Anthony death stare.

The Casey Anthony legal defense team alleged, without a shred of evidence, that Casey`s father and brother systematically sexually molested her. They implied that this abuse rendered Casey so psychologically damaged and her personality so fragmented, that she could party shortly after the death/murder of her daughter.


When Casey`s father, George Anthony, was on the stand, especially when he was bawling like a colicky baby, Casey aimed her death stare at him like a laser.

Casey`s attorneys probably advised her to look angry when her dad was on the stand, to give credence to the fiction that he molested her. But there was no way that Casey`s lawyers could have trained her to put on a face of such ferocious and malignant evil. That hatred emanates from the stone-cold heart of the young murderess.

It`s frightening when an individual can focus his anger with such intensity on someone else. I imagine that`s the look that Casey had on her face when she killed her own flesh and blood.

When Casey was smothering the life out of Caylee, she didn`t think of the beautiful child as her daughter, but as a troublesome and needy brat who hindered her from partying until the wee hours of the night.

Casey probably had her hair pulled back tight when she murdered Caylee. In some tribes warriors apply war paint on their faces when they are preparing to kill members of a rival tribe; I imagine Casey pulls her hair back when she`s overcome with bloodlust.

Poor, poor Caylee, the child may have died from sheer terror staring at her mother`s demonic face.

I hope that Casey will spend the rest of her life behind bars, and eternity in hell.
