-- -- book on a sensational murder case the trial of Casey Anthony.
Since her acquittal in the death of her two year old daughter Caylee.
Casey has become one of the most hated women in the country.
Now there's a psychological portrait out of the woman whose lawyers claimed was a victim of -- child sexual abuse.
Prosecutors called her a cold blooded killer.
Doctor -- tableau as a psychiatrist and a member of the Fox News medically time eighteen he has written the book inside the mind.
Of Casey Anthony.
A lot of people wonder what's inside that mine that doctor -- what's your overarching conclusion.
The overarching conclusion is that this is a woman who had no capacity.
To feel anything first self know reality really and therefore no ability of fuel for anyone else.
That explains why she was able to go out dancing when her daughter was at minimum missing a month and some people would allege that she had killed -- But how how can a mother I mean even some of the worst some of the most up.
Notable -- in the world feel attachment to their own child.
Well that's why -- go back in this book a hundred years John all the way back to her great grandparents.
The evolution of her extinguishing.
As a person she grew up with parents -- hope spring drive for instance.
Who didn't even know she was seven months pregnant that's how little regard they had four as a human being.
That you were there in the delivery suite she didn't hold -- the young girl who died.
It was given to her mom to hold first did the baby was because really she didn't exist by this point.
Even if -- graduate high school they had a graduation party anyhow why because she doesn't matter she doesn't exist the celebration of the families what matters.
She went missing before this little girl went missing that's the point of this book.
But it's also pointed out that friends and family members sent gifts for her graduation.
And -- family didn't send them back.
The thinking being that that they wanted everything to look perfect they wanted everything to look normal.
Even her friends her friends know that she had no nanny that she had no job but they thought well she's a nice person -- get in her face and her brother.
By the way if friends -- to say hey Casey come on.
You don't have a nanny he'd be right up in their faces saying what you given her trouble for she's just like that.
See the bottom line is nobody wanted to challenger -- this young woman before the ultimate tragedy occurred.
Because they wanted to control her completely in that home in which you grew up.
Absolute complete control.
-- no internal self no capacity care about anyone including ultimately your own child.
-- does does this say that she in your review might be responsible for the murder of her child.
I present several theories the one in which all the psychological.
Variables lineup and I'll let the jury's verdict stand but the one in which the psychological -- -- the psychological -- -- -- is that.
Faced with potentially surrounding surrendering custody of her little girl to her mother she decided I'd rather should go to heaven.
And not have to suffer through what I lived through in this home.
Then what about the the defense claim that her father sexually abused her that seemed to come out of nowhere.
For a lot of people does that fit the profile of this family and and -- specific.
Well doesn't come out -- nowhere because after all George Anthony is at the foot of his daughter's bed when she gives birth.
How can you imagine she's delivering a child he's at the bottom of the bad.
How humiliated do you have to be as a young woman to lie down for that quite literally.
And what kind of mother because the grandmothers there Cindy Anthony would -- -- husband to be positioned in that way.
And by the way John I'm just telling you.
Her reported being sexually abused I'm not saying if it's accurate or not but -- squares exactly with the way people describe sexual abuse in my office when they have no dog in the hunt.
Just pain due to share.
-- well it's it's a fascinating read and a story that still America is talking about there is the book inside the mind of Casey Anthony doctor -- have -- the author.
