Over­come – with no emo­tion

Chat - - Hair-raising -

In Jan­uary 1997, Miles Evans ap­peared at a Press con­fer­ence with his dis­traught wife Paula.

His step­daugh­ter Zoe, 9, was miss­ing, and Evans pleaded for in­for­ma­tion. But, un­known to view­ers, he’d suf­fo­cated Zoe and dumped her body in wood­land. Evans was jailed for life for Zoe’s mur­der.

Cliff says:

‘Evans is look­ing down, but that doesn’t con­vince us of sad­ness – his brows are flat. With Zoe’s mother, we saw brows raised in the cen­tre, a gen­uine in­di­ca­tor of sad­ness. If you don’t see that fa­cial dis­play, you need to ques­tion whether the emo­tion is be­ing felt.’
