In his new book, Casey Anthony's defense lawyer Jose Baez says the accused child killer lived in a "fantasy world" and has "serious mental health issues."
Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story is Baez's account of last year's sensational trial. In it, he says Casey's lies to police weren't proof of guilt.
Instead, he says they're indicative of her obvious mental problems.
As for why Baez decided to write a book about the trial, he says:
"I wrote the book because there was so much that people didn't know, and still don't know. This book is more than 420 pages of nothing but the inside story."
"My goal wasn't to change anyone's minds. My goal was to tell the story and if people change their minds, it will be because [they learned] more facts."
"I think people's reaction will be surprised at how much they don't know."
For instance, describing in the book why Casey Anthony took police officers to Universal Studios to look for her daughter, Caylee Anthony, Baez writes:
"[Detectives should have realized] right away, 'Wait a minute, we're clearly not dealing with someone who is playing with a full deck.'"
