WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) September 1, 2006
On Monday, August 28th, when hundreds of thousands of people were glued to their radios and TVs when the fateful announcement was made that the DNA did not match self-proclaimed murderer John Mark Karr, Popular Media Guest and Body Language Expert Janine Driver, aka the Lyin’ Tamer, had just gotten off the phone with CNN Producer Keren Schiffman from the Nancy Grace Show. Driver jokingly told CNN Producer Schiffman, “Along with Karr’s red shirt, he should wear a pointed hat with a feather in it, and have a long wooden nose!”
According to Driver, she then cautioned the CNN Producer Schiffman that Karr’s disclaimer, where he mentioned that his DNA might not be found at the scene of the crime, was a “HOT SPOT”. Driver explained, “Liars will often give false alibis and rationalize potential problems with the evidence before the results are disclosed.”
Three days earlier, on Friday, August 25th, Driver was a returning guest of NBC’s The Today Show, where she revealed to NBC Personality Al Roker and the American public that she thought Karr’s choice of words and body language screamed, “LIAR!” Also, when Karr first hit the news, Driver immediately posted her analysis of Karr’s body language and deceptive statements on her website, http://www.lyintamer.com. There, Driver states, “Perhaps you thought to yourself, “Finally!” or, “That’s weird, I thought it was the mother who killed her!” or, “I knew the family wasn’t involved.” Despite this, don't breathe a sigh of relief just yet…” Driver then goes into great detail examining the deception indicators with Karr’s story during his surprising and chilling statements. Driver explains it is important to remember that behavioral signs by themselves may have no specific meaning, but Karr is definitely holding something back!
Since Driver’s appearance on NBC, she has received over 100 e-mails from people proclaiming that Karr was being far less than truthful. One person, Cynthia Posey had this to say, “I'm uncertain whether Karr murdered that beautiful darling of a child. It is very strange to me that it has gone on this long!” While Lyin’ Tamer Fan Bob Carson claims, “I do not believe that Mr. Karr killed Jon Bonnet Ramsey. Yes he is a sexual predator. His mannerisms to me, say he wants attention. I think he wants to be punished for his sexual predation of children but doesn't want to face his victims.” Another writer, who remains nameless said, “I have questioned the authenticity of John Mark Karr's confession since day one. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but it just seemed wrong from the first video I watched of him. One thing that jumped out at me was… he has not held eye contact with reporters or cameramen for more than a few seconds. He just looks "shifty" to me, as if he is looking for attention for other psychological issues or attention from the public for some other reason.”
Driver has responded to the flux of e-mails by sending each person her cutting-edge Lyin’ Tamer Quick Tips: Typical Indicators of Truthful People Verses Deceptive People.
