Cheney Mason was responding to questions by LawNewz Network’s Jesse Weber about Anthony’s statements to the Associated Press earlier this year. Mason, who represented Anthony along with attorney Joan Baez, said:

I believe that Casey’s mind, in some dimension, I guess the common word would say ‘snapped.’ She didn’t go crazy by any means — but blackout — completely a blackout — of what went on and what happened.”

Mason went on to explain that Anthony “grieved and comprehended differently than anyone else what happened.” In fact, Mason said he believes that Anthony did not even really realize that her daughter was dead until the murder trial. “She went into what I call ‘Casey World.’  She shut it out,” Mason said. “She didn’t know what she was doing or what she was saying.”

Anthony was controversially acquitted of first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter of a child, and aggravated child abuse in 2011.

The lawyer said that Casey had a strong bond with Caylee, who he described as a perfectly healthy and happy child. He also reported that his office still receives conspiracy theories about what some people believe actually happened to Caylee Anthony.
