George and Cindy Anthony, parents of Casey Anthony, are taking a polygraph test in an upcoming special to address their daughter’s accusations and the death of their granddaughter, Caylee.

The polygraph was conducted by a retired FBI agent, and the Anthonys’ motive for participating was to address public criticism.

The case involves Casey’s 2011 acquittal for her daughter’s death, with accusations and counter-accusations within the family. (Trending: Ex-Marine Imprisoned In Russia Sends Message To Biden)

The polygraph’s accuracy and the potential impact on the family’s closure are discussed.

FBI Special Agent George Olivo said, “When I met them, they were soon separated, and I tested George first.”

“Nothing really stood out to me. They seem like, on the surface, just a regular couple that have been together for a very long time,” he continued.

“You’ve got your daughter that’s accusing you of some pretty horrific things,” said Special Agent Olivo.

“If they claim that they didn’t do anything, it’s like the old saying goes, you’re darned if you do and you’re darned if you don’t. If you say nothing, those same critics will say, ‘Well, there you go. They didn’t say anything, so they must be guilty.’ And if they speak up and say, ‘I’d like to respond to that publicly the same way [my daughter] made her accusations publicly,’ then critics will say, ‘They’re trying to capitalize on it,’” he continued.

“You can’t win either way,” Olivo added. “The Supreme Court – and I agree with them – want the jury to be the final [arbiter] of truth.”

“I taught investigators and agents to ask someone to take a polygraph exam, not in a challenging way but in a more cooperative way,” explained the agent.

“Like, ‘I believe you. Let’s take a polygraph exam to verify your statement. That way you can put all of this behind you,’” he continued.

“Guilty people have two strategies. If they think they can get away with it, they always appear cooperative. Otherwise, you’re going to look guilty if you aren’t. … But often, they will start backpedaling before you even start the test. ‘I’m pretty nervous’ or ‘I heard these things don’t really work. They’re not admissible, right?’ They’ll start getting all their ducks lined up because they’re already anticipating that it may not go well,” said Olivo.

“A legitimate polygraph test will have repetition,” explained Olivo.

“We ask the same questions several times. A truthful person can be nervous at first, but they will habituate after a little while. They will show patterns of truthfulness. A deceptive person will get more anxious every time they have to lie. They feel like they’re sticking their neck out further and further every time they have to lie. We see the opposite; a deceptive person won’t habituate,” continued the investigator.

“In the end, this is still a family…But some wounds are just too deep. I hope they can pick up the pieces somehow. There are still a lot of scattered pieces on the ground,” concluded Olivo.
