Deception: Can Drawings Help Spot a Liar?

I found this article VERY fascinating.  Psychology Today blog article by David DiSalvo on a study that reports about what happens when subjects are asked to sketch the scene or location where an event occurred.  The study appears to indicate that deceptive subjects draw or sketch the scene totally different than the way truthful people sketch the scene.  What I find interesting is the “over the shoulder camera-view.”  I wonder if I can use this as an “over the shoulder view” as a way to judge the verbal accuracy of what my subjects are describing during the narrative phase.
