KYLE RITTENHOUSE ‘FORCED HIMSELF TO CRY,’ EXPERT SAYS (part 2)
“His breathing is hyperventilating. He is bringing in big gulps of air to heighten the intensity of his emotional state. To gain energy to create the tears,” Wood said.
“His facial expressions compress and explode out, and the breathing gets more intense.”
“He is working to intensify the emotions and make them bigger rather than the normal manner that I have analyzed in witness statements and testimony that I have seen in victims who have been traumatized and asked to go back to the moment and relive it.”
Wood specifically mentioned his eyebrows.
“Normally, in sadness and fear, the eyebrows would go in towards the nose,” the body language expert said.
“They’d be down in over the bridge of the nose. That is a part of the body that’s hard to consciously control.”
“Instead, we have just these normal, arching eyebrows.”
