Brueski and Coffindaffer were visibly shocked by Vallow's statement, which lasted a little over eight minutes. Coffindaffer characterized the speech as "blasphemy," expressing her difficulty in listening to someone use biblical terms and religious precepts as a smoke screen for heinous acts. "This woman essentially used or tried to use God and religion [for] her evil motives, and I just really never bought into it," Coffindaffer stated.
Brueski inquired whether Vallow was initially using religious language as a manipulative tactic, asking whether she genuinely believed the disturbing content of her speech. He observed that Vallow's statement didn't come across as an excuse; rather, it appeared to be the sincere beliefs of a profoundly deluded individual.
Coffindaffer agreed that the speech was "spooky," but couldn't be convinced that Vallow genuinely believed her words. Instead, she saw the convicted murderer as using religion as a shield to obscure the evilness of her acts. "I think it's just a very simple way for somebody when they're making their own rules on their conduct and for her to really just change what religion actually says," Coffindaffer said.
Brueski pondered the impacts on those in the courtroom seeking acknowledgment of Vallow's heinous crimes. He expressed doubt that anyone present received the closure or realization they might have hoped for from Vallow's admission of guilt or even the slightest remorse.
Coffindaffer echoed these sentiments, pointing out Vallow's lack of emotional response during the victim's statements. She portrayed Vallow as stoic, seemingly untouched by the pain and suffering she had caused. "The only dry eye in the house was hers," she noted, pointing to this lack of emotional response as a forecast of the self-serving nature of Vallow's subsequent statement.
