During episode 2 of Oxygen’s limited series “The Case of: Caylee Anthony,” forensic linguist James Fitzgerald analyzed video footage of Casey Anthony following her arrest for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Casey was acquitted on charges of both first-degree murder and manslaughter.

Along with former FBI supervisory special agent Jim Clemente and former New Scotland Yard criminal behavioral analyst Laura Richards, Fitzgerald examined Casey’s behavior to see how she reacted to the charges brought against her.

The surveillance video from the sheriff’s office captures Casey chatting with officers while she waits for her defense attorney Jose Baez to arrive to the station.

Taking lessons from Walter White isn’t always the best idea.

Last week, a 21-year-old man from Saline County, Arkansas called police after he ingested ricin, which he apparently allegedly created after being inspired by the hit drama “Breaking Bad.”

Alexander Joseph Jordan called 911 to report chest pain and suicidal thoughts, KATV reported. He was also complaining of diarrhea and blurred vision, Special Agent Katie Rowbotham later testified in court, according to Arkansas Online.

The young man allegedly told responding paramedics that in his home they could find “stuff in there of mass destruction.” Soon, local police, a hazardous-material team and the FBI obtained a search warrant to investigate the brick ranch Jordan lives in, along with his mother and stepdad. Authorities said they confiscated two mason jars worth of ricin in the home, according to Arkansas Online. They also seized a blender that Jordan allegedly mixed castor beans
