Negotiation Nonverbal Communication Secret # 1407:
Auboni Champion-Morin
Reunited with Kidnapped Son After 8 Years -
Microexpression of Contempt

In an very emotional interview on the Dr. Drew's HLN Show, Auboni Champion-Morin gives a tearful interview. At the time the show was recorded, she had not yet seen her son, Miguel, who was kidnapped 8 years ago when he was only 8 months old.  Near the very end of the video - at the 1:48 mark and again at 1:51, Ms. Champion-Morin displays two examples of a microexpression - that of contempt. Pay close attention to the LEFT side of HER face - a very brief "snarl" and flaring of her left nostril. Pause the video several times at these moments to get a better look. She is directing this very negative emotion (understandably) towards the kidnapper - her former friend and Miguel's babysitter, Krystal Rochelle Tanner.
