There is an article that suggests that. I think there is a possibility. In her interviews, I notice that she uses big words. Her attorneys have commented on the fact that she's intelligent.According to testimonies, she seems to have a hard time having empathy for others.



I'm not saying Asperger's causes aspies to harm others, which CA is alleged to have done. But her behavior exhibit signs of someone who has AS.

We can armchair diagnose CA all day long but it's my belief that there is nothing clinically wrong with her. She's a pretty decent liar and a damn good actress who happened to be smart enough to never admit to anything and kept her mouth shut and followed her attorney's advice.

Didn't she have a pretty active social life? Most Aspies do quite poorly in social situations.

I agree. Her partying would indicate she does not have Aspergers.

Not all Aspies are anti-social.

She cost the taxpayers close to $7,000 in clinical evaluations during the trial. Surely they would have diagnosed her, but they didn't. Casey is nothing but a pathological liar who beat the system.

I agree. I don't see any symptoms of Asperger's. Just lack of morals and a conscience. I'm more inclined to go with sociopath.

I don't see any signs of Aspberger's in CA. She is able to maintain eye contact, has no mannerisms of Aspberger's.

How often have we heard of "the many faces of Casey Anthony"?
My armchair diagnosis would be Dissociative Identity Disorder.
