LORI Vallow appeared to contain her anger as she was convicted of murdering her two children on Friday, a body language expert has said.
The “cult mother” sentencing hearing will be held in about three months, Judge Steven Boyce said.
“She’s suppressing her anger,” Wood said.
“She doesn’t think it’s fair. ,That is not right.'”
The expert said the way Lori crossed her arms as she read the verdict showed mixed feelings.
“We have what I would call criss-cross, meaning one hand is outstretched, one finger grasping, arm clasping, and the other is hidden, and that suggests mixed feelings,” Wood said.
The way the convict glared at her, frowning and cringing muscle According to Wood, the area near the bridge of her nose also indicated anger.
“It’s the muscle of concentration and focus, so you can see it very clearly,” she said.
“This line shows that she is focused. And the focus is an angry look.”
According to Wood’s analysis, there was also evidence of suppressed anger in the way Lori pursed her lips.
The convict hid the top of her mouth and turned the corners of her mouth down, resulting in wrinkles on the chin and cheeks.
“This is typically an indication of controlled anger and/or resignation,” Wood said.
She added that Lori and her attorneys displayed similar body language when they were in the “Fig Leaf Pose“, a defensive posture in which the hands are clasped in front of a person’s midsection.
Wood said the stance shows vulnerability in the situation.
“It suggests that they all knew what the verdict would be,” she said.
“They all agreed to that.”
Wood also noted that it was Lori attracted more modest than in the past.
She previously said the mother has “a certain dramatic energy,” which is amplified by her relatively “provocative” nature. outfits.
But on Friday, Wood noted that Lori covered most of her body in black clothing.
She added that the mother has taken a “more humble attitude” which is at odds with the way she has presented herself in the past.
“[It was]a decision about how she wanted to present herself, how she wanted to look,” Wood said.
JJ’s aunt Kresha Kay Easton told the US Sun that in the years leading up to the murders, Lori had plans to adopt another child.
“Wouldn’t there be another burial site in Chad Daybell’s backyard?” she wondered.
JJ’s grandfather Larry Woodcock spoke to reporters after the verdict.
“I want to personally thank and give each and every one of these jurors a personal hug,” he said after realizing he was at a loss for words.
“What they’ve been through – what they’ve seen is amazing.
“I hope nobody ever has to go through this — I hope nobody ever has to see and hear the details of what happened with JJ, Tylee and Tammy.”
