There is linguistic evidence that points to scripting in the 911 call made by Sergio Celis into the disappearance of his daughter, Isabel.
The lack of urgency on the part of both parents tells us the same thing past tense verbs tell us, and the same thing a cadaver dog hit tells us:
Isabel is dead.
"Hello, I want to report a missing person" said, Sergio.
The father of a kidnapped child is not likely to start his call with "hello."
Note: this is not expected by anyone in a hurry to get emergency information to an operator.
The father of a kidnapped child is not likely to refer to her as a "person."
Please note that a "person" is gender neutral and unidentified.
"I believe she was abducted."
The word "abducted" is conclusionary, as if to explain what should have been a blunt trauma mystery. Instead, it sounds like a scripted story where he is using language from a television story. Was she just "missing" or does he wish to communicate an "abduction"? Note "abduction" and not "kidnapping" by the father.
He gave a weak assertion with the word "believed": he would know, for fact, that his daughter was "missing" but not "abducted."
He is then asked why he believed she was abducted:
"I have no idea."
This is a give away that this call was contrived and rehearsed. How would he have no idea when it was what he reported? He expressed his belief in abduction but was unable to give a single reason why (including that she was not there and the window was open)
It is likely that he was not prepared to answer this question. He may have thought that his report of her being gone would be enough, and he was not ready for this.
Even as he was just going with his story he has to tell them that he was just on the other side of the wall watching the Diamond Backs baseball game. He even reports what he did not hear, signaling something very important for us. Then he says "we woke up" changed to "I woke up", with analysis concluding: deception indicated.
The script continues as planned.
911 Operator: Is mom there also?
S. CELIS: She had just left for work. I just called her, and I told her to get her butt home.
This is a critical point of the script.
"She had just left for work" has the word, "left", which is point of sensitivity, 70% likely due to rushing, time, traffic, but 30% likely related to missing serious information. Given the situation of missing child, my bet is that her "leaving" was a critical part of this story, as per agreed between the parents.
If you are new to Statement Analysis, search the blog for teaching on the word "left" or "departed" when used as a connecting verb between two places. There is always missing information here.
"I was in the living room and went to the kitchen" is a very straight forward statement. But look at the same wording where the subject's mind remains in the living room, where something happened:
"I was in the living room, left the living room, and went into the kitchen."
The point of leaving is sensitive to the subject. When I interview and hear this, my first question is "were you rushed?" but when the subject says "no" I recognize that there is a story there; each and every time, that the subject has not shared. It could be anything at all. I have heard things such as there was an argument in the living room, to assaults. It is the "leaving" that is sensitive.
Here in the 911 call, it is critical to Sergio that he report that Becky left.
Question for Analysis: Is the 'leaving' critical to Becky?
Is Becky part of this ruse?
911 operator: Who noticed her gone?
Becky: "My husband. I went to work this morning at 7AM and, um, I just, and I didn't even come, and check on her. I should have come and checked on her."
For Becky, it is important to report that she went to work and give the time.
Next, note that she reports what she did not do: "come" and check on her, with "I should have come and..." repeated. "Come" where? This call was made from home. Where was she that she should have come home to check on her? This confusion in language, along with her extreme nervousness in trying to carry out this ruse, cause her to be confused.
Becky Celis, a mother with a likely substance abuse issue (Fox News) made sure she quickly (priority) told 911 that she was not home, and when Isabel was reported missing, remained silent, against every maternal instinct created, for 5 days until the media pressured her into crying out to Isabel.
When she gave her media interview on her "kidnapped" child, the word "kidnap" in any form, did not enter her vocabulary.
Sergio and Becky Celis have conspired together to cover up whatever it is that has happened to Isabel.
While talking heads point out the difference in tone between them on the scripted and fake 911 call, it is her own words that give her away.
It was a priority for Becky Celis to communicate to the 911 operator that she was not home.
This points to alibi building.
Much is made of his chuckle. I think it was a nervous chuckle, a guilty slip that his fake confident tone belies: he thought to himself that he got away with it. This is not Statement Analysis, but an opinion only.
That Isabel is dead, and that the parents know it (she is 'dead' to them, if they gave her away) and that they are, both, withholding information, is Statement Analysis.
The lack of urgency, the lack of searching and crying out to Isabel, is Behavioral Analysis.
