Road-rage blame game

Chat - - Hair-raising -

Tracie Andrews stabbed her fi­ance Lee Har­vey more than 40 times with a penknife – then blamed his death on a road-rage at­tack. But a num­ber of signs at a po­lice Press con­fer­ence meant Andrews’ body lan­guage outed her as a cal­lous mur­derer. Andrews was jailed for life, but re­leased in 2011. Cliff says: ‘There are six in­di­ca­tors she’s ly­ing. She says, “I just tried to stop the bleed­ing re­ally.” Why qual­ify the state­ment with “re­ally”? We see a slight shoul­der shrug from her left shoul­der. Sin­gle-sided shoul­der shrugs are be­low the level of con­scious­ness. Peo­ple don’t know they’re do­ing it and that’s why it’s a re­li­able in­di­ca­tor of de­cep­tion. We hear a vol­ume drop, she swal­lows hard, she pauses and the pitch of her voice goes up.’
