What’s a Demon Gotta Do to be Executed These Days

-Disgustipated, Arizona

EggTreeNews Word of the Week: 
BEFUDDLED- tr.v. be·fud·dled, be·fud·dling, be·fud·dles
1. To confuse; perplex. 
Example: When 12 reasonable people agreed a soulless demon committed a brutal premeditated murder, but failed to agree on any punishment whatsoever, it left mankind BEFUDDLED. 

I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is local succubus Jodi Arias has been tried and convicted of the horrific first degree murder of Travis Alexander. No matter what, she has been branded guilty as sin.  So we’ve got that much goin’ for us. The confounding bad news is, the same jury that unanimously determined the blackhearted demon’s guilt also deadlocked on how best to punish her. Consequently, the judge declared a mistrial of the penalty phase, and a new group of young ruffians will be dragged into court in July to decide whether the monster lives or dies. Arizona taxpayers will likely riot over funding Stabby Einstein’s courtroom spotlight through the summer, and the Alexander family, already dragged through a labyrinth of unbearable grief, will have to climb another mountain of Jodi’s hellfire scented malarkey. 

Homecoming Queen reject Jenny’s extracurricular drama class came in quite handy during her closing argument. Channeling her idol Molly Ringwald, she gently stroked her psycho My Twinn doll Jodi’s fragile head with enough pity to pull the heartstrings of at least one wayward juror as she cooed, “Can you kill her?” Her theater coach should give her a John Hughes Award for teen melodrama, because at least one misguided sap on the “death penalty qualified” jury couldn’t bear the thought of ridding humanity of a diabolical fleshbag with human parts who is capable of ALL the following:

29 stab wounds. 
Gunshot to the face. 
Throat slit from ear to ear. 
5 years of lies upon lies upon lies to law enforcement. 
At the eleventh hour, claimed the abuse excuse with zero evidence against the victim. 
Casually threw in some unfounded pedophilia accusations about the victim, too, just for good measure. 
Lied straight to the jury. 
Drained Arizona taxpayers of $1.8 million (so far) to buff and polish her turdsicle of a case. 
Has never shown a morsel of remorse, or just good old fashioned human shame. 

But somehow, between Jenny’s acting lessons and Stabby’s heartfelt promises to grow her hair, read, and recycle in prison, they managed to make at least one soft juror go “Awwwww… 6 billion people on this planet isn’t nearly enough. We really need a demon in the mix. And I definitely can’t execute someone who can trace Dior ads. What the hell are we thinking?”

      Ain’t it the truth?! EXACTLY what the good doctor ordered…Thank you Eggy, once again, the world makes sense…Your ‘perspective’ goes down like a shot of good (very good) whisky…much needed… good stuff…on we go..

      • Agreed!

        I’m just beside myself with so much anger and disbelief. That I HAD to UNLIKE all my Facebook ages pertaining to stabby.

        I can’t bear to look at her smug face nor listen to tat delusional foreman.

        The only thing I didn’t Nike or unsubscribe to, was this site!

        Thank you eggy ❤ ❤ ❤

          Fry Jodi Arias is a good facebook page. At least I think so.

          Eggy, loved this article just like I have all of them. Keep up the good work.

        • Me too… wait… JOHN HUGHES award bwhahahhahahaha omg love you.

      To all those who lost heart with the non-verdict: it may not be that bad either way.

      Here is a link to a video created by former Deputy Warden of some of Arizona’s harshest prisons. He clears a lot of confusion, and sheds light on what the REAL LIFE in Perryville will be like for this stabby monster, as opposed to her FANTASY Social-Club.

      If you think she deserves the worst possible outcome, and were devastated by the hung jury, this may help you deal with it.

      • Posted by Guest on May 25, 2013 at 7:36 am

        THANK-YOU 🙂 I feel a little better after watching this. She does not deserve her vision of being the “Queen Bee” of the prison. If she has to live, i wish an existence that is utterly miserable, humiliating, and depressing. Hope the prison guards will not allow themselves to be manipulated by her.

        • Posted by Veronica on May 25, 2013 at 11:15 am

          I worry about the guards that deal with her too. I believe somewhere down the road, there is a possibility that she will manipulate someone. So, they need to be on their P’s and Q’s, because they’re dealing with a totally different breed.

          • Posted by Polk8dot on May 25, 2013 at 11:24 am

            She many not be such a great danger to them for too long.
            Did you see the ‘Age Progression’ picture of Stabby? It is completely priceless.
            Given how vain this Demon is, she might actually beg for death, as she promised, after seeing how FUGLY she’ll get on the inside, whether DR or LWOP.

            Here is the link:

              I suppose the short hair is due to all the years she’s been busily growing it and donating it to Locks for Love.

              oh my word.. Thats an amazing pic..and it did make me feel a bit better…
              gag with the short hair! But so true Ria..its probably due to the fact that she’s donating it. acckkk..haackkk……..ughdhdhdh

            • Posted by De-Edifying on May 27, 2013 at 3:47 pm

              Only the eyes are a bit off. Stabby’s are smaller, beady and blacker….rodent-lke.
              Beyond that the progression is spot on.

              • Posted by michele on June 1, 2013 at 2:22 am

                Spider eyes. I think that age progression was wayyyyy tooooo generous. First of all, given that all she will have 23 hours a day is her pork rinds and candy, and since she doesn’t have to starve and puke to look tiny and frail, she will balloooon up to 390 pounds by the time she’s 35. Those cross-eyes of hers will be soulless pin pricks. Spider eyes.

            • Never mind 20 years! I just wonder what she’ll look like when Penalty Phase: Round 2 starts. She’s been aging in dog years ever since she first invaded our nightmares.

              • Posted by GBPL on May 28, 2013 at 4:04 pm

                “She’s been aging in dog years ever since she first invaded our nightmares.”

                  I’m curious as to what “look” she is going to don for the penalty phase do-over? I guess she’ll see who’s on the jury, then she can wear the appropriate costume and perform for the most gullible.

            • After 20 years? Try after 5 years in solitary confinement on Death Row!!!

          • Posted by jenniferlyn on May 25, 2013 at 4:38 pm

            My thoughts exactly! She’ll somehow end up pregnant behind bars, because Jodi gets what she wants. Granted, the one at most fault will be whichever guard falls under her evil spell, because he is, after all, the one with “the power”….but we will all KNOW how it really went down!!

        • All I can say is I feel so much better about Jodi Arias. I did think she was going to have it made in Perryville Prison. Arias’ will never suffer as she made Mr. Alexander. Although her days of media and asking for make-up will be over. All the things she told to the jury will never, ever happen. The way Mr.ToerBijns described her prison life will be worst than death. A life in solitary confinement for this evil individual is exactly what she needs. I know the prison guards will treat her as they do all the other convicts. No special treatment, diva days will be nonexistent.Staff who will supervise Arias, better watch their backs and be extra careful when in direct contact with this Demon. Jodi Arias is the most frightening person, I’ve seen in a long time. I’ve noticed in a few of her photo’s you can see the evil in her dark eyes. Thank heaven, I discovered this blog!!!!

          • In one of her numerous photos, the portals to hell look like they’re lighter…glowing with evil.

            • Posted by jenniferlyn on May 28, 2013 at 3:52 pm

              20 yrs from now, I bet we’ll see an episode of “Snapped” on the Oxygen Channel with the above haggard face trying once again to convince an interviwer she was railroaded.

              • Posted by Melissa on May 28, 2013 at 7:52 pm

                I so agree… If she makes it that long at Perryville- she has a rude awakening coming

      • Posted by Laurel on May 25, 2013 at 3:14 pm

        This video was awesome. It showed very clearly that Stabby will be calling NO shots while in prison, and that her time there will be deprived, miserable, ugly and soul-less beyond comprehension.
        The Sheriff basically said she was totally in la-la land and had no clue what was in store for her there, that her idea of prison and the reality of it were not even close. Ha!

      • I’ve tried to watch this elsewhere, have tried to Google it, and your link is the ONLY one that works. I really appreciate it. It does make me feel better knowing this.

      • Thank you so much for this information. I live in Phoenix but I know nothing about the Perryville prison. To listen to this man describe what this Demon will go through really made by day! I honestly believed she was going to have it very easy. I feel so much better. Oh happy day!!!

      • This is what Stabby Einstein needs only if she only knew what is coming her way.

        • Posted by sierra on May 27, 2013 at 7:33 am

          Oh, I think she knows quite well what’s ahead of her…the other inmates have coached her for 5 yrs. That’s why she tried blackmailing the Alexander family & JM in her offer to plea to 2nd deg homicide in return for not trashing Travis .. her way of begging to not be sent to Perryville’s max security wing & to endure only 10 yrs of a sentence rather than life or death row…blackmailing them, strong-arming them, rather than apologizing & begging for her life. Same as with her “allocution” in the mitigating phase — not begging or pleading, but slapping them in the face with her “Travis wasn’t ‘the glue’, Grandma was ‘the glue’ – Samantha lied”….& who in the hell doesn’t have a recycling program since the 70’s ? Geez, even the smallest towns in America have recycling by now, why wouldn’t the prison systems, except with security in mind there’s only so much they can recycle or have it done in different ways than the FREE, unimprisoned, population. She’s a moron, plain & simple, & played to the other morons that might be on the jury (that’s you, Mr. JuryForeman); I’m pretty sure Wilma & Nimrod made sure she got filled in on what Perryville will be like that the other inmate friends of hers haven’t told her already.

          • You got it Sierra! I noticed every time she was in an interview and she didn’t like a question she resorted to “I don’t know” as her response the Fog seems to have worked wonders for her so now it’s her “schtick” on all things uncomfortable .she gave the impression to the jury that she would effect postive changes to the prison system . Huh???? A high school dropout who is a waitress can bring effective policies to a prison system –
            That’s just her ego talking – her self importance seems to know no bounds. Hope Alice LaToilette is listening!

            • Posted by jenniferlyn on May 28, 2013 at 1:22 am

              Wow Sierra, I didn’t even realize Stabby may have been calling them liars with her “glue” story, but the way you put it makes sense. (especially considering who the “storyteller” is) Once again, I just automatically gave her the benefit of the doubt because I couldn’t imagine saying something so hurtful to a family who’s already grieving. (I also wouldn’t plan and carry out a brutal murder, but that’s not really here nor there) I think I need to be more suspicious of people and their motives! LOL

  2. The whole thing depresses me. How is it even possible that one demon creature can cause such a never ending nightmare? Of course it mostly sucks for Travis’ family and loved ones but for anyone that doesn’t delight in evil, it sucks for us too. Anyway, love all your stuff Egg and thanks!

  3. Posted by JusticeIsAroundTheCorner on May 25, 2013 at 12:21 am

    you’ve hit the nail on the head again. I’m happy we get a second chance with a new jury that hasn’t been brainwashed by her ridiculousness. hoping to get a jury summons in the mail for this b-to-the-iatch! 😉

    • Posted by jenniferlyn on May 25, 2013 at 6:31 pm

      but of COURSE you wouldn’t be able to tell us about it!! 😉

      • Posted by JusticeIsAroundTheCorner on May 25, 2013 at 11:47 pm

        seriously! i’d be happy even if my husband (who didn’t care to know much about the trial) got the “golden ticket” in the mail. He knows how to vote the right way!!! haha

        • Oh…. don’t say “golden ticket.” It reminds me of that insufferable weasel Gus Searcy, who told the court that for someone just starting out in PPL (Jodi), being invited (by Travis) to attend the Executive Directors’ Banquet was like winning the golden ticket.

          • Gus Searcy = fame whore!! I don’t know which Defense witness (other than the murderer) was the worst in this trial – Gus Searcy, Dr. Fog, or Alyce LaToilette!!

            • Posted by elsinor44 on May 30, 2013 at 12:26 am

              I checked YouTube for a clip of that quotation to make sure I was remembering it correctly, but never actually got that far. Once I saw that the first GS video listed was posted BY GUS SEARCY and subtitled “A frank interview with Gus Searcy about his heard and unheard testimony. Will answer some questions you may have been having,” I decided I really didn’t care if I was misquoting him. I hope he has Juan Martinez nightmares for the rest of his miserable, self-aggrandizing excrescence. I mean existence. (And what a spokesman for PPL…. no access to a lawyer when he needed one.)

          • *thoroughly amused by “insufferable weasel”*

  4. Definitely in need of comic relief even if it is about a sad situation. Keep em coming!

  5. Posted by Lisa K on May 25, 2013 at 12:28 am

    I’m still stunned. I hope the demon shuts her pie hole so no one has to hear her whine again.

    I wonder what Wilma and Nurmi think. They fed this demon and allowed her to spew for years. Now they get to represent her evilness for another few months. So close to being done with Stabby.

    • Posted by Laurel on May 25, 2013 at 3:16 pm

      Do they have to represent her agin?

      Or can they give it to someone else? I’d love it if they were stuck with her!

      • Posted by Lisa K on May 25, 2013 at 6:15 pm

        Both said they are going to continue representing her. They could petition to leave the case, but I’m not certain the Judge would have allowed that. She just might have though, considering that JA continued to do interviews that insulted them.

        I can’t imagine that they will represent her during her appeals. She’s too much of a diva and too combative to her own counsel.

    • Posted by sierra on May 27, 2013 at 7:39 am

      I believe they’re anti-death penalty types, like a lot of criminal def attys, & certain liberal media types like Kiefer …. who stood in the background of the DB interspew done when he was due to testify for the penalty phase on demon’s behalf…..funny how the Jury Foreman, in his interspew, used similar verbage as DB in DB’s interspew ? mere coinkidink ? Methinks, not.
      I think the anti-dp advocates will be trying to load this next jury with their own … like they did with Caylee Anthony’s murder trial jury who acquitted her mother of her murder.

  6. Posted by Ann-Marie on May 25, 2013 at 12:34 am

    It’s so sad to think of his family having to endure that again. Maybe it would be better for the State to try for a life with no parole plea to spare them the stress. Anyway, thanks for the updates…. at least by sharing your take on this we have something to lighten the bad news just a bit. Hope all is well on your side, and…. Cake, please.

    • Posted by Ria on May 25, 2013 at 8:55 am

      Ann-Marie, I saw friends of Travis’ family on t.v. and they said Martinez consulted with them, they absolutely want him to continue pursuing the DP.

      • Posted by Terri LaValle on May 25, 2013 at 10:59 am

        Yes, I believe it is up to the family. I don’t know if County Attorney Bill Montgomery can override this due how much this thing has cost the county already. Trying to find an impartial jury will be next to impossible as well. Guess we will have to wait and see………….

        • Maybe if they compare the cost of going forward with the mitigation phase (and hopefully getting the DP and an execution in 12-20 years, depending on the appeals) against the cost of keeping it in prison for the rest of its demonic life (which it says will be long), the taxpayers will be saving money… AND be able to sleep at night. Just a thought. BTW: Great post today, Eggy!!!

          • That reminds me. What the heck was her point in saying she would have a naturally long life? Was this her way of saying it would be cheaper to execute her? x_x

            • Posted by mystree10 on May 28, 2013 at 12:23 pm

              I believe it was her way of saying that she “didn’t want to live in the same place” for that many years. Lol

      • Posted by Ann-Marie on May 25, 2013 at 12:20 pm

        I haven’t seen much coverage in the last 2 days, but if the family is willing to keep going with the process, then is the state obliged to continue? I have a feeling that JM would be in favor of a second try. But if that also results in a hung jury, do they have to quit or can they keep going until they get a unanimous result? Anyone know?

        • Posted by jazzyp on May 25, 2013 at 12:38 pm

          If a second jury cant make a decision it goes to the judge. She will decide LWOP or LWP.

          Really Love this blog and glad to be here.

        • If a second jury cannot reach a verdict, the judge will choose life (which would make her eligible for parole in 20 years since she has already served 5 years) or LWOP. That is different from other states.

          • if another hung jury, I hope Judge Stephens will have the strength to give Arias life without parole. Not to be disrespectful but the Judge seems rather weak. I hope I’m wrong.

            • Posted by Polk8dot on May 28, 2013 at 6:17 am

              This Judge was a Prosecutor for 21 years (since getting her JD in 1980) in her capacity as AZ Assistant Attorney General in Organized Crime and Fraud Section . She became a judge in 2001.
              This gives me hope that she is tough enough. She was just bending over backwards during the trial to avoid any appealable issues, but when push comes to shove, she will do the right thing.

              • Posted by Maureen on May 30, 2013 at 9:26 pm

                I am sure Judge Stevens would give her LWOP. she would ignore the brutality and the fact that a majority of the jurors wanted her to get death.

        • Posted by Ria on May 25, 2013 at 2:50 pm

          Don’t quote me on this but I think, if the jury were to be hung a second time, it would default to a life sentence and Judge Sherry would decide on whether she would be parole eligible.

          I’m sure someone above JM could over ride him if they felt it was going to be too costly.

          • Posted by Danny on May 25, 2013 at 4:05 pm

            Yes, his boss can override Juan if he decides for whatever reason that it would not be feasible to let a new jury deal with it. Travis’ family will have some influence but the final decision is the state attorney or so I’m told.

    • Very well! We’re gonna run outta cake at this rate!! 😆

    • Posted by sierra on May 27, 2013 at 7:41 am

      yeah, that’s what the anti-dp folks want you to think. I think, NOT. Not for this crime — after all, what would her “encore” murder be like ? Those 4 men she was going camping with armed with her brand new 9mm & 2 knives sure are glad she got arrested before she could make the trip, & possibly kill them, steal their valuables, then claim self-defense & attempted rape if caught ? Now, she’ll have to go toe-to-toe with a female gang member instead.

      • Good lord I completely didn’t think of that. (((((shudder)))))

      • Posted by PFENIX on May 29, 2013 at 5:57 pm

        The camping story was BS, she was going on the run and since she was successful bringing a man down with a knife, she had two knives and a bigger better gun with her.

    • Posted by Fenway freak on May 25, 2013 at 2:16 pm

      The state gets two chances only. If second jury comes back hung, the judge will sentence her to either life without possibility of parole or life with possibility of parole in twenty five years. Two shots. That’s it.

  8. Posted by Pen on May 25, 2013 at 1:04 am

    “Turdsicle of a case” poetry.

  9. You hit the nail on the head Eggy. The system is geared to protect the perpetrator, the victim has no rights. Defense attorneys are allowed to spew lies (like Baez did) in order to sway the jury while prosecutors are admonished if they tell the truth. Even the Judges are controlled by the defense who rule what jury instructions can be given.

    I’m beginning to wonder if the prosecution should withdraw the DP and request LWOP – because the next jury may be hung which means parole may be a possibility. Don’t want her to have the luxury of dreaming about getting out.

    • Posted by Lynette Dasenbrock on May 25, 2013 at 6:55 am

      I agree Jill. Would like to see LWOP. However as much as Stabby is enjoying all her time in the spotlight, I wonder if the defense would accept the deal.

    • I have the feeling that the judge would sentence it to DWOP. Unless she drank the demon’s kool-aid. BTW: Is the judge appointed or elected? Something for her to ponder considering the public outrage and disgust EVERYONE feels for this vile creature.

      • Posted by sierra on May 27, 2013 at 7:44 am

        From the judge’s reaction to the jury’s nonverdict, I don’t think she’d sentence this demon to 25-to-life with parole.

      • DWOP…death without parole? Definitely!

      • Posted by Polk8dot on May 28, 2013 at 6:45 am

        From MCSC site:
        Judges are appointed through a merit process. Judicial candidates are selected for their legal ability and professional and personal achievements rather than their mastery of political campaigns.
        Applicants for judicial appointment are screened by the Commission on Trial Court Appointments, a non-partisan committee. The Commission reviews all applications, interviews candidates and selects finalists whose names are forwarded to the Governor. The Governor reviews the applications, interviews each finalist and appoints one of them to the bench.
        Superior Court judges in Maricopa County remain in office by the approval of voters in retention elections. There are no opponents in these elections. Voters cast a “yes” vote to retain a judge in office. A “no” vote would remove the judge from office (* and thus open the position for another judicial appointment). Every two years each judge undergoes a public review process, including a survey of the judges ability by lawyers, litigants, jurors and staff. Judges face a retention election every four years.
        * It seems that every 4 years the judges get rotated thru different divisions. Judge Stephens started in Juvenile (2001-04), then Criminal (04-07), then Family (07-10), again Criminal (10-13), and as of July 2013 she’ll be again in Family Court division. Seems like a good way to ensure no corruption, and keep the judges from burning out.
        * Attached is a link to her latest Judicial Review, when she was up for Retention Election in 2012 (she scored really high):

    The other good news is, AZ is one of TOUGHEST women’s prison in America. So regardless of she gets the DP or LIPWOP, her first 3 years are going to be brutal–Rewind the tape back to “If I killed Travis Alexander, I would beg for the Death Penalty”, well start begging bitch. You days are numbered. These women are do not pay nice with a girl who tries to be nice, and we all know Jodi is a huge fake.

    Girls with tattoos on every place on their body are dying to slap a bitch into shape, real quick. Hey, its no wonder why she wanted DP, she knew!

    • Posted by pfenix on May 25, 2013 at 9:19 am

      Watch her ask for a mistrial so she can ask for the death penalty if she get LWOP. Of course this will be years after she realizes nobody is buying the abuse/pedophile story, after the ninja story, after I wasn’t there story.

      AND she will blame and throw her family under the bus again for talking her out of the death penalty.

    • Posted by sierra on May 27, 2013 at 7:47 am

      Especially a hispanic one who tried to pass herself off as white, & killed a white dude…that pisses off gang boss “Mamasita “Big Bertha”” real bad in prison.
      Like someone on a blog whose ex-hubby did many stretches in AZ & CA prisons, those inmates already have her “jacket.” They’re just biding their time til she comes onboard & is accessible to them.

      • I was thinking that she was trying way too hard to look and act completely “white”.

        Then I saw the video posted here about Perryville, and I could just see how THAT was going to play out in there. 0_o

        • Posted by Polk8dot on May 28, 2013 at 7:02 am

          I suspect that the moment she gets the taste of general population in Perryville hell, whether thru LWP’s gradual GP integration, or thru LWOP’s daily yard access, she will start throwing around the ‘suicide threats’, maybe even put on a half-assed production of an attempted one (never fear, she will NOT hurt herself). This skank is very sneaky, and she will do anything to ensure her own safety and comfort. So regardless of sucking up to the guards and BigBertha, she will every few weeks ‘let it slip’ that she can’t take it anymore, and get herself temporarily relocated to the psych ward. She may even suck in the orderlies and/or docs in there into her web. I can totally see her ‘running’ the asylum.

    USA TOP 10 worst prisons (Women)

    5. Maricopa County Jail(Arizona)

    I didn’t know there were this many ugly people in Arizona. I slept on a concrete floor for 11 days in a bullpen with one open toilet for 60 people. We were given a white bread pimento sandwich and a warm Tetra Pak of milk twice a day. I wanted to hang myself, but I never saw a sheet or blanket for my whole time there. Perryville is even worse. Gosh, I’m so lucky I only did 252 days and never got sentence to prison. I’m never going back, thank God! Female Inmate Released 4-2013

      Ugh, what a horrible life! I read a post written by a nurse who had worked an AZ women’s prison. She said she had to use maxi pads on open wounds because they didn’t have the proper supplies.

      I know..I thought the exact same thing! Abused? Dude are you on crack or what???

    • I hope Mr. Martinez can clarify for the next jury that Travis’ taped remarks were taken out of context and that the real (and valid) reasons why he got so angry at the demon were never disclosed. Which leads me to ask: Why didn’t the judge allow the reasons for Travis’ rage to come in as evidence? Why wasn’t this point really cleared up during trial? Maybe the foreman (and apparently 3 other lobotomized jurors) wouldn’t have fallen for the demon’s version of the story.

      • Posted by sierra on May 27, 2013 at 7:56 am

        8 other jurors & at least 1 alternate juror “got it” after being there for the same 5 mos that juror foreman was, without needing special clarification from JM. This jury foreman struck me as being anti-dp, & “in his misunderstanding” juror instructions thought he could hang the jury such that their non-verdict would immediately force the judge to sentence her to life, either with or without parole…when that’d be what’d happen IF & only IF the 2nd jury hung up.

        He’s also a member of the broadcast media, & is likely the one that Nurmi alluded to “I know the jurors are violating the admonition & listening to media reports” … in fact, I think he had DB set up in his hotel to interview with Kiefer & some other dude (who did the on-camera work, Kiefer’s heard in the background feeding questions) at the time DB would’ve been on the stand instead, & the language DB uses mimics that of Jenny W.’s closing that day, & the early morning after the non-verdict, the jury foreman’s been caught up with all the media surrounding the case for 5 mos & uses almost verbatim the same language DB used in his interspew, & that Jenny W. used in her closing. Coinkidink? I think not.

        Under cross exam by Walnut, Dr Demarte tried her best to illustrate Travis responses via texts/email were out of frustration/anger/desperation to JA’s stalking behaviour/threats/lies. Demarte was emphatic NO pattern was established to constitute verbal abuse. To Walnuts demise, she stuck to her guns re the text msge exchanges re Travis angry words were an isolated incident. Of course Walnut kept trying to limit Demarte’s answers during her endless shrieking cross + ultimately failed miserably. Like you , it would have been great to see Demarte’s point of NO verbal abuse emphasized.

    • Posted by jenniferlyn on May 27, 2013 at 1:06 am

      I’d love to know how many people on that jury truly believed that there was verbal and mental “abuse” by Travis. Yes, he called her names, but correct me if I’m wrong, wasn’t that just a one time text message fight? Who hasn’t gotten into a fight with someone and not let a few good words/names fly? That does NOT qualify one as abusive, or else I’ve been abusing my laptop, my cellphone, my TV remote, etc. for years!! I also seem to remember that there was indication that the fight began because Stabby was either threatening to divulge personal info to Travis’ LDS Bishop, or something of that nature, so who exactly would wear the “black hat” in this situation?

      I found the following warning signs of an abusive relationships on the DV resource website dayoneny.org. Considering how many “warning signs” would be attributed to Jodi, once again it appears the purported “victim” was in reality, the perpetrator:

      What are the Warning Signs? (that your relationship may be abusive)

      Extreme jealousy or insecurity – This one is Jodi ALL THE WAY. There was no indication AT ALL, in any form, that Travis was jealous or insecure regarding whatever it was that was going on with he and Jodi, but we KNOW (from 18 days of testimony) that Jodi is about as insecure as they come.

      Constant put-downs – We only see evidence of “put-downs” in the one text message highlighted by the defense, and based on their theory that this supposed “DV” occurred, I have to believe that if there were MORE text messages, instant messages, emails, etc. that could have backed up said claim, we’d have heard about them ad nauseum during the trial.

      Possessiveness or treating you like property – The t-shirt saying “Travis Alexander’s” and the booty shorts that read “Travis'” (those are NOT undies. If there are, they’re the unsexiest ones I’ve seen in quite a while) obviously convey ownership, but I would hazard a guess that it’s not quite the type of treatment that constitutes DV. Besides, Jodi didn’t seem to think them negative in context until AFTER she’d killed Travis.

      Telling you what to do – I don’t think either of them were particularly guilty of this one, though people that believe in Jodi’s supposed “innocence” (HELLO SHE’S BEEN CONVICTED!!) would beg to differ, and as proof they bring up the hiking trip wherein without permission, one of Travis’ friends took it upon himself to “lighten” her backpack of items HE deemed unnecessary. Because it was Travis’ friend, that automatically means Travis treated Jodi the same way. (apparently you are not just your brothers’ keeper anymore, but your friends’ as well)

      Constantly checking in on you – DEFINITELY Jodi. No ifs, ands, or butts about it. 😉

      Explosive temper – Yeah, this one’s pretty obvious.

      Making false accusations – I don’t know, is calling someone a pedophile without any evidence WHATSOEVER to back it up, a false accusation?

      Isolating you from your friends and family – If anyone was isolated from friends and family, it would be Jodi since she was in Mesa…but that was HER CHOICE, and Travis certainly didn’t prevent her from doing anything she wanted to do. Besides, I don’t believe she had many friends, especially not women. (we pick up on that “crazy” vibe way too easily)

      Preventing you from doing things you want to do – Nope. (see above again)

      I’d say if anyone was being “abused” in their twisted friends with benefits/relationship it was Travis, however Jodi was more “stalker” than “abuser” IMO.

      • Posted by Ria on May 27, 2013 at 2:46 am

        Excellent points Jen. The defense had to keep bringing that text message in because it was all they had and it was clear that Travis was reacting to something awful Stabby was intending to do…some huge betrayal.

        Reading the list, it definitely relates to Stabby much more than Travis!

      • Posted by sierra on May 27, 2013 at 8:01 am

        1 email out of – get this – 80,000 they exchanged in 18 mos….the majority of those 80,000 emails originated from Arias, btw.
        80,000 emails divided by 18 mos comes out to something like 130 emails PER DAY.
        let me repeat that –
        130+. PER.DAY.
        yet, ALV, & DT, take this 1 email (that was meant to dampen her obsession for Travis, sent by well-intentioned but misguided friends the Hughes’), & that 1 illegally-recorded sex tape that so obviously shows Arias leading sleepy Travis on, at 3am some morning, & blow it all out of proportion.

        • Posted by sierra on May 27, 2013 at 8:04 am

          I don’t think I’ve sent my beaus 10 texts per day, much less emails or calls , either while dating or living with them.. I can’t imagine 130+ emails PER DAY on top of texts & calls, like Arias. If the jury wasn’t informed of that volume & that Arias was responsible for the majority, then JM should next time. They should know that 1 of 80,000 is what the defense is making into a “pattern” when it isn’t.

          • Posted by Ria on May 27, 2013 at 9:42 am

            What about all the sweet message Travis left on Jodi’s My.Space. He tells her she looks beautiful in Sepia and this one:
            Travis to Jodi: “I wonder how much you raise the hotness level of Yreka all by yourself, factoring in its per capita hot stats before you came, I am sure it has raised exponentially”.

            He left complimentary comments to many of her photo’s.
            I wish the prosecution had been able to bring these in as evidence. Abusive men don’t compliment women like that because they don’t want you to have confidence or think you’re desirable to other men. They criticize and pick to break you down and feel that nobody else would ever want you.

          • Who on earth has the TIME to send that many messages to ANYBODY per day?!?! Plus texts and calls?!?! When did she ever squeeze in her miraculous, lifesaving trace art and “professional photography” if she was blowing up her phone/laptop that much on average?

            Lawdy lawdy….

            • Posted by jenniferlyn on May 28, 2013 at 2:16 am

              I was thinking about the incredible # of emails while I was going through my email inbox, and it’s quite possible that they weren’t all personal / original emails. Some of those are likely forwarded junk mail. Stabby strikes me as the type to forward voluminous amounts of those “inspirational” emails, esp if she was trying to convince Travis that she was his “spiritual equal” (despite his beng an LDS Elder) I’ll bet every funny email and every chain letter Jodi got, Travis got… but I thought the 18k was the total amount of all emails, instant messaging, and text messages between them?

  13. Given the ubiquitous licence for bad behaviour which the pussy pass bestows on women in western societies, it is nothing short of miraculous that the jury in this instance returned an aggravated M1 verdict. That some of them nevertheless bought into the defence’s domestic abuse schtick was more or less inevitable when you consider just how mercilessly men are have been pathologised by the herds of LaViolettes who have flourished over the past few decades, their snouts deep in the trough of the public purse. They are a fucking pestilence.

    But they are just one manifestation – among many – of the pathological character of the society we live in: the fact is that we are so incessantly gaslighted in every sphere of our lives that we can no longer tell shit from shinola. Truly, we live in benighted times.

    • Posted by Barb on May 25, 2013 at 4:33 am

      Wow Graeme. Good insight!.We attempt to make excuses for all kinds of criminal behavior but I feel there are just some inherently EVIL people among us that defy description. They just need to go quietly into the night. Or screaming madly like their victims did!

      • Thanks, Barb. Are you familiar with Thomas Sheridan’s work on psychopaths? He has written a couple of very well received books on the subject. There are some excellent interviews with him on YouTube, including: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qigr-axv2dk

        Sheridan believes that psychopaths are born rather than raised, and defines them as a sub-species of the human race (there is medical evidence to substantiate this thesis). It’s very interesting stuff, compellingly argued. Well worth listening to (and persisting with, in the event you struggle initially with his Irish brogue).

        • Posted by Sully on May 25, 2013 at 8:36 am

          Absolutely no problem with the Irish brogue.

        • Posted by Barb on May 26, 2013 at 12:33 pm

          No problem with the brogue at all. Confirms my uneducated opinion that these people are born, not raised. Thanks for the link!

    • I love the “pussy pass” concept ! I may try it the next time I get a traffic ticket—-I’ll just show the judge pix of my naughty bits, claim ptsd, and see what happens. Since I am 65, the least it will do is sicken the judge, I can get a new trial, and then I’ll go do interviews. We truly are living in an alternate reality.

      • Sixty-five is pushing it, admittedly, but as long as your bits don’t look like an iguana’s dewlap (like Jodi’s), it might fly.

        • omg Graeme – I am embarrassed (not really) to say how fn funny bringing the iguana into the picture is. I always thought her FACE was iguanish,, with the hole in her mouth and the wandering eyes, but the bits part made me lose a great sip of coffee through the nose and all over the computer. Eggy’s blog during this trial has just about ruined this computer from all the coffee sprays, but your comment just caught me so off guard (in a good way), especially after looking at your avatar with the “lil one”. Too funny all the way around, and after what this jury did, having a good laugh is a great release.

            ITA — coffee through this nose too over that one graeme — and Jill, you should get a Pulitzer — honest.

          • Ah yes, the mouth. I kept expecting a little forked tongue to flick out.

            The avatar is deliberately incongruous, by the way. My daughter(the ‘lil one’) was abducted in the UK family courts by her borderline mother ten years ago. I haven’t seen her since she was five. I became interested in this case because Arias reminded me in many ways of my ex (these skanks are scarily prototypical in their behaviours).

            • I am so sorry to hear that. I hope and pray for the best for you and your little one.

              • Thank you, queeneggo.

                • Sorry to hear that Graeme. Sounds like you do have a personal link to skank behavior. Sorry I mentioned the lil one.

                  I have a male friend whose bipolar-sociopathic (with some Munchausen-by-proxy thrown in for good measure) ex did the same thing using the courts as your borderline did in the UK. At some point the courts embraced this idea that all men are sexual predators, & without any substantiation & despite passing voice stress analysis test & polygraph test, & in spite of support by social workers & specially trained detectives who clear the fathers, the fathers are still made out to be the evildoers in family court by the judges. Just what the hell does it take ? Just like with Arias, 1 unsubstantiated claim with forged letters & soliciting false testimony from a friend who’s acting as her (faked) witness, & a social worker who “interprets” emails without questioning 1 of the 2 parties involved (& we all know how emails are notoriously subject to misinterpretation) suddenly it’s written in stone that a guy is a pedophile ?

    • I think juror #8 is the reason she got a murder 1 felony premeditated… and with extreme cruelty….. The defense got rid of him,,, I am sure it was obvious to nurmi and jenny that he was NOT buying the BS…. Now, the jackelantern foreman took the role, and said crap like … she does not look like a killer,, and it just doesn’t wash!!! WTH?

      • Posted by Ria on May 25, 2013 at 4:17 pm

        And he’s whining now about how unfair it is to put this responsibility on 12 regular people…HELLO, he knew this was a death penalty case! I guess if it had been a 40 year old unattractive man then it would somehow be okay? And what difference does not having a criminal history make? So if you’re 27 and it’s your first murder, it’s not that bad I guess…ughhh!

        • Posted by sierra on May 27, 2013 at 8:36 am

          Jury Foreman was a stealth-anti-dp advocate, IMO. His profession is as a broadcast journalist of some sort. Not surprisingly, his comments mimicked that of Jenny W’s & DT penalty phase witness-wannabe Darryl Brewer in Brewer’s interspew that had Kiefer (an anti-dp, anti-JM, advocate) in the background puppetmastering the interspew.

    • Posted by Danny on May 25, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    • Hi Graeme,

    I have now listened to six different interviews the foreman gave. This guy is not soft-hearted – there is something wrong with him and his thinking process. I hope we hear from some of the other jurors soon.

    • Posted by Barb on May 25, 2013 at 4:22 am

      Agree with you Laurie! Also agree with Wendy Walsh (atty on JVM/HLN) that there were men who developed fantasies about the Beast after “big screen” views of her private parts and her recorded breathless orgasms!. How could they vote Death for their sexual fantasy?

      • Posted by Karen Jenkins on May 25, 2013 at 7:09 am

        I two believe some one on that jury had a fantasy of a sexual encounter with the devil.”So hot” got to him/her,don’t know for sure.I just can’t understand how they could with such ease find the first two guilty verdicts.where did they think this would take them?If anyone remembers the Anthony case was also ending at a holliday.4th of July I think,maybe they had holliday plans and just wanted to get the hell out of that court room.who knows,but they just really lost it,I just hope the next trial is not close to a holliday.

    • I just can’t believe it. If they couldn’t give her DEATH, why couldn’t they agree on a life sentence. They know she viciously killed him. UGH

      • Posted by momvar on May 25, 2013 at 2:47 pm

        I think it’s likely that the eight who were for the death penalty made it clear they would not budge.

    • Posted by Ria on May 25, 2013 at 7:02 am

      Some of his comments were really alarming! He said something like “we’re not lawyers, we don’t know legal terms”…well, shouldn’t he have realized this early on? He really brought into Jenny’s thing about the “trajectory” of Stabby’s life changing after she met Travis, so he thinks Travis is responsible for the blood bath his life ended in?

      I doubt they’ll have a new jury picked by July, I’ll be shocked if it gets going as soon as that.

      • Posted by Karen Jenkins on May 25, 2013 at 7:23 am

        It could take a year to pick a new jury,I just hope stabby is kept in seclusion for the entire time, if she is we will see a totally different person then.By then she should have short hair because she would have made a few wigs, but it would have been in her cell by hand after she yankes her own hair out one hand full at a time

      • Posted by Sharon on May 25, 2013 at 7:49 am

        Interesting that he used the term ‘trajectory’. Jenny used that exact term in her closing.

        • Posted by Laurie on May 25, 2013 at 8:37 am

          I have now seen about six interviews with the foreman. He often says the exact words of the defense attorneys, Jodi, and even LaViollette. The defense completely pulled this guy into their way of thinking – I am shocked there is first degree murder conviction.

          • Posted by Ria on May 25, 2013 at 9:04 am

            Same here, the more I read and see about him, the more shocked I am that they came back with that verdict! He sounds so sympathetic toward her. He said she was just a normal woman, living a normal life until Travis showed up? She would’ve killed eventually, if not Travis then someone else. You don’t just get driven to chop another human being into pieces because he didn’t want you. Normal people don’t do that! Normal people don’t get driven to that extreme, no matter how crappy a guy has treated them. He must have been one of the four that wanted life.

              Let’s see if his opinion changes when he finds the truth about her shitnagigans during the trial. Let’s see if he feels so sympathetic then, Mr. Blow Hard Dumb Ass.

              • Posted by Ria on May 25, 2013 at 2:58 pm

                He seems to be feeling even more sympathetic now, here’s a quote from his Radar Online interview:

                “What she did was horrible, there’s no question about it, but this is a human being. Our jury’s prudence system is based on innocent until proven guilty. And this girl was crucified in the court of public opinion. We didn’t know that of course until after the fact.”

                • Posted by Danny on May 25, 2013 at 4:23 pm

                  He’s quite a stupid sob. If what she did to Travis doesn’t warrant the death penalty then we should just take it off the books and out of consideration.

                • Posted by Danny on May 25, 2013 at 5:18 pm

                  “What she did was horrible, there’s no question about it, but this is a human being. Our jury’s prudence system is based on innocent until proven guilty. And this girl was crucified in the court of public opinion. We didn’t know that of course until after the fact.”

                  LOL! What a dumbass that jury foreskin is! It is not “jury’s prudence system.” Rather, if you want to be fancy, system of jurisprudence. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/jurisprudence

                  (means 1: the science or philosophy of law

                  2a : a system or body of law

                  b : the course of court decisions

                  And the stupid mofo had ALREADY found her guilty, all twelve of them had! So what is his major malfunction other than perhaps being sprung instead of hung?

                  • Exactly Danny. What was he thinking? He must have thought, like you said, that if they couldn’t agree on the penalty phase, then it would be a mistrial for the whole thing. I can’t believe he said that innocence until proven guilty… Dude! You the jury had already founded her guilty! Ignorance of the law is not an excuse.

    • Posted by Pam on May 25, 2013 at 9:30 am

      Laurie, i agree. He contradicts himself and makes no sense. He has been sucked in by the demon and doesn’t realize it. He said they didn’t realize there would be a mistrial– well why not ask the judge?? They asked other questions. It was clear to the rest of us way out in TV land.

      • Posted by Polk8dot on May 25, 2013 at 2:56 pm

        I think he was personally invested in Stabby getting off, for a while now. Who knows, maybe the other 3 were just like him, maybe not. But they found it much easier to go against the rest once he made the stand and refusd to budge.

        I think he (and/or the other 3) were for Stabby from almost the beginning. Whether they came into the trial with this mindset, or it developed gradually, is not important to me. In light of his proclaimed views, it DOES SEEM LIKE A MIRACLE THAT THERE WAS A GUILTY VERDICT in guilt phase, and another in aggravation phase.
        I found it very disconserting that the jury/ the forman did not even give the Judge another chance to instruct them further on the law. He knew if he signed the form ‘Unable to Agree’ that it was OVER. Otherwise, they would have tried to go on. He stated that HE WAS SHOCKED that this verdict only caused Mistrial for this phase of the trial, not the WHOLE trial.
        To me it says that he was CERTAIN that no matter what other verdict was given in the other 2 phases, this was the only crucial one, and would seal Stabby’s fate. I believe it was his design, from the start, to pretend to go along with the others, while waiting for the coup-de-gras, when he will be able to force the Hung Jury and Mistrial on the whole thing. There was no way he could have voted ‘Not Guilty’ on the first 2 phases, as Stabby pretty much admitted guilt and cruelty, so that would have raised red flags. But if he pretended to go along with the rest, and then voted ‘mistrial’ now, HE WAS CERTAIN THAT WOULD INVALIDATE THE WHOLE TRIAL, and give the Demon at least another 3-5 years of good life in Sheriff Arpaio’s JAIL, preparing for a new trial, as opposed to the harsh life at Max-Sec in Perryville.

        I hope that our Juan will follow up on that issue. It seems like a very overt ‘bad faith’ act on the foreman’s part.

        Nancy Grace was right – if they told the judge somebody was refusing to budge, to deliberate, they might have been kicked off the jury in time to secure a verdict. But since he forced the Hung Jury instead (sure, otherwise he is the one that would have been kicked off/replaced), we lost that chance. Because of 1 A$$hole with an agenda Travis’s family is now sentenced to many more months of hardship and horrors, of lies and slander, and we are all left with the huge sense of empty dissatisfaction and shock. This really sucks.

          Hmmmm, I think you’re onto something there Polk8dot. I didn’t think about that but what you’re saying makes sense. He figured being hung at the very last phase would null the Guilt of 1st degree premed verdict. Then he wouldn’t look like the bad guy who wanted to let a murderess out.

        • Yup. That’s where my mind was wandering too.

          Isnt it fitting, though, that a rogue juror in her favor would be too ignorant of the law to pull it off? That’s priceless in its own way…

        The Demon did mouth something about the jury foreman to Wilmutt during the guilty or penatly phase, then stood behind her as the jury went out. Maybe she mouthed Pop Rocks to the old man and stuck her tongue in her cheek.

      Can’t imagine the frustration of the 8 jurors that voted for death, having to deal with
      the likes of the Foreman and the three others. The instructions were not to go with
      their emotions and sympathies. Just knew somehow slimy DT struck a cord with all their lies and filth that Demon fed them.

    • Posted by sierra on May 27, 2013 at 8:40 am

      One of the other 12 deliberating jurors commented on twitter that the jurors had made a pact to delay interviewing until this coming week, after the holiday weekend, to give themselves time to get refreshed & do it as a group. Jury foreman apparently went rogue, as he’s a broadcast journalist & wanted to get the jump on the rest of the jurors.
      One alternate juror #17 posted on TA’s family’s FB page that she’s sorry the jury let the family down with the non-verdict, sorry they have to go through yet another round to get the demon sentenced, & said she’d not have voted for life if she’d been part of the group deliberating.
      I look forward to hearing the other juror’s views.

      Might also remind this clunker that he voted to convict her on Capital murder, thus denouncing her claim of self defense as the reason for murdering the victim, & also voted that her murder of TA was especially cruel, finding “for” the aggravating factor. So, he convicted her of aggravated Capital murder….then he turns around & states in his interspews that ‘she’s innocent before proven guilty’ ? umm, methinks he’s caught “HER FOG”.

      • Posted by sierra on May 27, 2013 at 8:47 am

        In other words, he criticizes people calling Arias the cold-blooded murderer she is, when she’s been convicted already of aggravated Capital murder such that people are right & accurate in calling her such, & he uses the “presumption of innocence” spew to support his opinion when it’s inappropriate & clearly shows he’s confused.

      Yep, between Jenny/Molly Ringwald’s drama class offering and a jury that somehow could only do 3/4 of the job (like going through labor and then declining on the final push) Stabby now gets to smugly sit with 8 more weeks to tweak her evil tale for the next team of lawyers, and gets to cast her black zombie eyes on yet another jury panel.

    Yes..jury foreman sounded very naive to put it nicely. He must not watch much murder mysteries on TV to see how so many people can murder their own Mother or even own child for profit or just because they have an EVIL mind like Jodi. all kinds of people commit cold blooded murders every day. The murderers don’t have to be big & strong…a lot of them lay in wait like Jodi did until their victim is defenseless & totally off guard…like asleep in their own bed or naked in their shower.

Didn’t he say he’d like to sit down and chat with her to learn the real truth of what happened in that bathroom? Yep, he got sucked into her evil web and I have a feeling that he bullied a few others on that jury too. My heart broke in pieces when I saw the anger and pain on Steven’s face. I want the family to have some peace. I want that monster to disappear forever. But I think we are depressed and/or angry because we are helpless.

                I don’t think Stabby will be able to have a job, as a max security prisoner, if she’s not on death row. If anything, she’ll be isolated for a few yrs until she earns a lower security ranking.

                  I read the same thing Sierra, that it would take her many years to build up to the level of being able to work…if ever. Because she’ll probably go in as a lifer (if she doesn’t get death) she’ll always been under more watch than others.

                  I also found out they already have a book club and it is not run by the prisoners, it’s run by outside volunteers and was founded by the mother of a girl who’s in for 7 years for a drunk driving manslaughter charge.

Demon Arias will be getting exactly what she deserves! No more getting basically everything she wants! I am so relieved. The Demon of Arizona will finally be silenced.

    i was surprised to hear that 8 voted death, 4 voted life. what really gets me is that in one of her recent interviews, she said she hopes for, and deserves, another chance at a normal life – so you can bet all her alone time will be spent reading law books and scheming to find a way for her conviction to be over-turned, and she will throw anyone and everyone under the bus to get what she wants.

    I seriously believe that our justice system needs to be rewritten…. how many more murderers are going to given a pass….. Casey A…..walked for murdering her baby…because her slimy lawyer lied though his back teeth, …. I cannot believe this Jury Foreman… he says she was verbally abused!!!!! what the hell has that got to do with the way she slaughtered Travis…. if this is the best you can come up with for letting Stabby slide, they only heard one side of the phone call of Travis saying she was the worst thing that ever happened to him, did they not wonder what prompted him to say that, there was never any proof that she was abused, what were they working on, if it’s just her word, did they not hear she had lied over and over for the past five years. After they have seen all the police tapings, her many TV interviews, maybe they will realize that they f..ked up…. I don’t want to berate the Jurors they did what they thought was right, but after 5 months, how come they could not see what this snarky, obnoxious, smug, narcissistic, sociopathic demon was playing them, the only relief is that they at least managed to convict her of Murder 1. Juan Martinez did a fantastic job and I am so sorry he did not get the result that he so deserved, and the poor Alexander family having to go thru all this again, my heart breaks for them.

        Remind your DH that the non-verdict means she hasn’t been sentenced, so she hasn’t gotten life, & she hasn’t gotten death either. So technically, the bet is still in the air, undetermined until either the next penalty phase jury comes up with a verdict, or the non-verdict is pulled again at which point death is off the table & the bet is collectible.

  25. Fleshbag with human part. Yes! Remind me of Pink Floyd The Wall video when the 2 unzipped their fleshbags!
    I went through Voir Dire last year. It was a case of aggravated assault with deadly weapon to a police officer, a felony 1. They couldn’t get me out of there fast enough when I “speak the truth” that my husband is a police officer, but I CAN be fair and impartial. The other guy behind me is a police officer, and a dude next to me has a child who is a dispatcher. One dude wayy in the back said out right that he can’t be fair or impartial for cop killers/assaulter. We were out of there in a flash.
    I was on a federal grand jury once, that time I had to stay.
    I’ve been really disappointed in the foreman since his umpteenth interview. Why the media blitz? Again, I wonder if his old heart could take it once he sees everything else we saw. I wonder if he would still be charmed by this “young lady going on about life”.
    Jury #14 (alternate) went to a Travis support site on fb and posted how sorry she was and that was not the decision she would have come to. I am willing to bet that the 4 who went with life are men.
    I’m done with my diatribe.

              She had several weeks to review her diary entrees and remove damaging posts and then make up excuses for why they were gone before she was arrested, such as : Travis made me remove negative things I wrote about him. She also could add or fabricate new entries to fit her story. That diary was just a book of lies,fabrications and some wishful thinking. Anything showing how evil she was was ripped out. That story that Travis didn’t like her to put entries about his bad behavior in there doesn’t even hold water. She lived hundreds of miles away in CA. Therefore she could write whatever she wanted. How could Travis view her writings if she didn’t show him the diary? Hogwash! Everything out of her reptilian mouth is a lie!

No way do I believe that she simply tossed it in the desert just before the dam that she may or may not have been stopped at.

                    She is very good at hiding things. The cops had no idea there was a gun hidden in the car when they arrested her, even after searching it. It was only because her mom asked them “did you find the gun?” that they realized and had to go and track the car down. That’s how well she had it hidden!

    I’m glad the naive foreman is blabbing his head off because this gives Juan Martinez an idea of the thinking of the idiot jurors who spared her life so he can address it in his rebuttal case. This is the fifth time Arizona has had a retrial on the death penalty and three cases came back with a death verdict, one hung and the other was not retried.

    The words of the foreman are very telling. He said Jodi Arias is a “human being”, a 27 year old “normal girl” whose “trajectory” of life changed when she met Travis who emotionally and verbally abused her. This indicates to me that being with Jodi Arias for five months and listening to her whining about Travis’s abuse for 18 days got to him as did Wilmott’s closing when she put her hands on Jodi’s shoulder and said, “Can you kill her?”

    The 67 year old foreman probably has a wild promiscuous granddaughter so he could not sentence Jodi Arias to death and hung the jury believing he saved her life. He is speaking because the public is outraged that the jury copped out and he is defending himself and Jodi, horrified to think that a new jury might kill this misunderstood little girl.

    The advantage to retrying the sentencing phase is in the eyes of the new jurors Jodi Arias is a convicted murderer of a horrific cruel crime in which a 30 year old man was stabbed 29 times, nearly decapitated and then shot in the face as he tried to get away from her. The new jurors don’t have to presume she is innocent. All they have to decide is if she gets the death penalty.

    In the sentencing phase, the defense has the burden of proving Jodi deserves to live. This is harder with a jury that hasn’t spent five months listening to a young woman with teenage bangs and mannerisms whining about being beaten with wooden spoons and belts as a child and physically, emotionally and sexually being abused by a Big Bad Mormon Pedophile Batterer and listening to a sex tape over and over.

    I think Martinez will have a better chance with a new jury.

      I agree.
      And probably Juan Martinez will have a better chance at “picking” a new jury too.

      “The 67 year old foreman probably has a wild promiscuous granddaughter so he could not sentence”

      Or he just has a granddaughter, period !!
      She was dressed to be a naive, little plain Jane. Yet she sat there for 18 days clamly, almost giggily, telling details about her sex life.
      But….let’s remember Bluto-HeavyD asking pervy question after question of “Did it hurt”..”How did that make you feel”..”Did you
      not want to do it” “Did he make you”…”Did he use lube”.???
      Grandpa foreman either reacted in horror and pity…or he got a senior thrill. *shrug*
      Either way, obviously, he bought the story.

    The foreman clearly did not understand the process of deliberating and he claims they were unaware that a mistrial would be declared for the sentencing if they did not reach a unamimous decision.Is this guy serious? Those are the questions you ask the judge!!! He also stated that when he first saw Jodi,it didn’t mesh!! Why? because in his mind, she didn’t LOOK like someone that could nearly decapitate someone. This trial dragged on too long.This was part of the defense strategy. The jurors probably had difficulty remembering all she had done in the beginning. She had 2 years to concoct the abuse excuse.NO hard evidence at all. I believe that the jury was burned out, and didn’t want the responsibility of making such a hard decision.They throw in the towel after only 13 hrs.The foreman more or less said that they made a pact in the beginning not to try to change each others mind. Defense got the exact jury they wanted. Mostly older people, who see Jodi as the girl next door who just happened to do a very bad thing.

      Read Polk8dot’s theory up above Chris, she has some great points. She brought up the foreman was shocked that a mistrial could be declared for the sentencing phase which could mean, he thought a hung jury meant a mistrial – period. As in the whole thing has to be started from scratch again. He didn’t realize the guilt verdict would still stand.

    • Posted by J on May 25, 2013 at 8:57 am

      If she doesn’t get the DP, then it has to be LWOP (only). This monster should not be let out after 20 years (or less with good behavior) so she can pick up her serial killer career. Travis was the first, if they didn’t grab her when they did there would undoubtedly have been more.

      • Posted by Cindy Lou on May 25, 2013 at 9:32 am

        Would love to see the look on the foreman’ s face when he hears Stabby had a gun and 2 knives locked and loaded in her killer getaway mobile the day she was arrested.

        • Posted by Veronica on May 25, 2013 at 11:04 am

          Yeah, he was way to sympathetic of her for some reason. And the fact that he evaded to JA having a god life until Travis came along. Well, many of us can say, Travis had a good life until she came along, because she ultimately slaughtered him. This foreman said a lot of things that were questionable. How he became the leader of the pack is beside me. However, she manipulated these jurors, but I doubt she will get off the hook the next go around. Her lack of remorse is what should really seal the deal for a death sentence.

          • Posted by Ria on May 25, 2013 at 3:19 pm

            I don’t see how we can even know whether her life prior to meeting Travis was good or even normal. Most of what we know came from her mouth but it wasn’t like old friends and co-workers were lining up in hoards to tell us what a great and normal person she was. Most of her past seems like a mystery really. Darrell said nice things about her but the reality is, he refused to marry her. He can claim it was because he didn’t want more kids but I doubt it.

      • Posted by Danny on May 25, 2013 at 4:47 pm

        I agree with you and Stabby would have gotten better at it too if she had not been caught. She left a very messy crime scene because she was not a professional killer but if by some miracle she hadn’t gotten caught murder would have come even easier to her and she would have made fewer mistakes. I have hoped all along that she would get the death penalty but if not that then lwop and may she never be out in public again, ever.

  30. I’ve seen the GMA interview…can anyone post where I can see the other interviews given by the foreperson? Thanks

    That foreperson also said that he hoped Jodi “finds some peace”. I guess he wanted death after all? This guy barely mentions the Alexander family. He was fixiated on poor Jodi. I hope he shuts already.

    • I do believe he had an agenda, but was too stupid to carry it out successfully. What his motivations were are pure speculation. But I would be Interested in any sudden money trail leading to his door.

  32. Posted by Observer on May 25, 2013 at 9:55 am

    An alternate juror told The Arizona Republic that she would have gone with the majority on the death penalty. Carol Gosselink of Scottsdale said Arias showed a lack of remorse. Arias’ claims about being emotionally abused also didn’t ring true.

    “I don’t doubt she was in a situation where she shouldn’t have put up with some of that stuff. But she had a choice,” Gosselink said.

    “She’s a pretty girl. Why did she continue in a relationship that caused that much negativity for her?”

    Gosselink said jurors and the three alternates agreed not to disclose which of the four were against sentencing Arias to death. She said the gender of the jurors “didn’t make a difference” in how they voted. But she was disappointed that they couldn’t come to an agreement.

  34. Posted by Tracy on May 25, 2013 at 10:41 am

    Thank you Egg as well as all of you bloggers for keeping me up to date on what is going on with the case. The jury foreman does not have a very perceptive view of the facts, and was persuaded by Jodi’s apparent “frailty” or possibly reported “good looks.” (Although I do not believe she looks like anything but evil.) I believe that society goes easier on females, and when they are violent, people often feel there must be some “excuse.” My own former daughter-in-law stabbed my son multiple times. Although he survived and the injuries weren’t serious because she only used a pocket knife, he wanted to protect her (much as Travis did when he didn’t report the tire slashing to authorities) by not telling authorities the truth. Wouldn’t you know, when the truth finally came out, his wife got a misdemeanor for stabbing him, while my son got a felony for obstruction of justice. Although he shouldn’t have lied to protect her, his punishment was more strict than hers! Can you imagine? I therefore was hoping maybe justice could be done in another case by convicting the vile demon and punishing her accordingly. When there was a mistrial in the punishment phase, I again felt betrayed, as the truth about Jodi is not being recognized by everyone. Evil people are so very capable of manipulating others, it is so sad!.

    • Posted by Ria on May 25, 2013 at 3:26 pm

      Oh my gosh Tracy! Your poor son!!! I’m glad he wasn’t seriously injured but that’s unbelievable that she got a slap on the wrist while his punishment was so much worse.
      I’m glad she’s now your former DIL!

      • Posted by Tracy on May 25, 2013 at 4:04 pm

        Thank you Ria; I appreciate that. So glad my son is out of it as well; that little marriage only lasted a year. My former DIL also abused him in many other ways (even though, like Travis, he was much bigger than she was). Men are not abused as often as women are, but when it happens, it is largely unreported because men are embarrassed to admit it. I think people are blind to the fact that it happens at all, and that is why they are so willing to believe that Jodi was the one who was abused.

    LMAO! OMG I needed that! Lets not forget, jury foreman ACTUALLY REFERS to her as a “human being”? REALLY? Takes more then a heart beat and 3 holes to be a “human being” HOW ABOUT A SOUL! ugh

  36. I wonder if one of the sealed questions from this jury was something like – do we have to only compare the mitigating factors and aggravating factors or could we use all the evidence from the trial (like the one out of 80,000 messages between the demon and Travis)?
    This jury cannot be serious if they only compared the factors for the penalty phase. They aren’t even comparable. Ugh! So frustrating! Prayers to the Alexanders family!!

    • I meant – they cannot be serious to come back hung if they only compare the factors. It would have been too easy for death. I don’t think they understood their charge.

    It makes me so angry. After listening to the foreman I have to say he some how found her to be truthful in some aspects. There was something he said about The Great Juan that made me feel he voted the way he very obviously did in spite of him. He said he felt like Juan Martinez tried to make him feel stupid.. which is so untrue. He laid all out for him. Ahhh whatadouche

    • Posted by De-Edifying watcher on May 25, 2013 at 12:04 pm

      Thinking that Alice LaLa and Samuel’s were in the foreman’s age-generation, he probably related and reacted to JM’s zero tolerance for BS from ANY witness, including those two.
      When JM took great pains in his closing to layout the reality in clear terms, leaving no room for ambiguity, this guy took it personal. Stupid perception, and if anything, a very *immature* reaction.

  40. Posted by Observer on May 25, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    Most jurors expect a murderer to look like a gangster covered in tattoos and not like a young soft spoken timid mousy Mary Poppins in glasses.

    Although the jurors clearly rejected the self defense story and the physical abuse, the foreman believed the emotional abuse. Nothing Jodi Arias said should be believed.

    Everything Jodi Arias testified to on the stand was calculated to make Travis out to be the villain and her the victim.

    On the sex tape, you can hear her leading the sex fantasies and masturbating and saying she loved his sexual prowess and wanted to marry a freaky returned missionary like him. That’s the real Jodi Arias.

    On the stand, she portrayed herself as a timid woman who just went along with sex to please Travis. She looked the part: the ugly skinny geek girl in glasses with stringy bangs and greasy hair. The real Jodi Arias is the blonde sultry seductress with breast implants.

    She portrayed Travis the way she is: violent, a sexual deviant, possessive, jealous. All of his other girlfriends testified that he was sweet, sensitive and understanding and nothing like she described him.

    In the police interrogation before she was arrested, Flores asked her if she killed Travis out of jealousy. She replied, “There was no jealousy on my part. There was jealousy on Travis’s part.”

    In the first TV interview she did after she was arrested in July 2008, the reporter told her Travis’s friends had said she was obsessed with Travis. Jodi replied that Travis would get mad if she didn’t call him right back but she wouldn’t call Travis obsessed with her. The reporter said, “No, they said YOU were obsessed with Travis.” She bristled. “I wouldn’t call it obsession.”

    All of the people from PPL who knew Jodi described her as being very sexual in the way she dressed, walked, talked and acted, that she was possessive and jealous and wouldn’t let Travis out of her sight. Travis’s friends were appalled that she would suck on his earlobe and lick his neck when he was talking to his friends. When they called her on her inappropriate behavior, she would just sit there for a few minutes staring at them with those soulless eyes.

    • Posted by Cindy Lou on May 25, 2013 at 1:55 pm

      Yes, observer, if the foreman said the jurors relied on the evidence to support Stabby’ s claim of abuse, then why wasn’t credence given to the string of former girlfriends who testified Travis never treated them with anything other than respect. But then, according to some court observers, this was the juror who rarely or never took any notes, and who on occasion appeared to be taking naps. Must of been asleep the days Mimi, Lisa, and Deanna took the witness stand ..

  43. You Nailed it, Eggy!!!!!

  44. Seems from further reading that Mr. Foreman, who did not take notes but perhaps napped during much of the trial.(perhaps his hearing aid was turned off?), had not seen or heard anything said after the view of naked, waxed, demon vaginal lips – He entered into the “fog” and rather than considering the evidence that was contrary to his fixation, focused on being the white knight to save the murdering damsel.

    • If the foreman is 67, perhaps he had a woody for Alyce Laviolette and believed anything SHE said.

      • Too bad Alyce is batting for the other team. I’m so disappointed in the foreman. He left the job unfinished. After 6 months the job isn’t done. Plus, how could he not know it would be a mistrial? There’s only 2 scenarios for his “feigned” ignorance – 1) he thought it would be a mistrial for the whole thing
        Or 2) he thought the judge would then give the demon LWOP or LWP 25.

        • Posted by Observer on May 25, 2013 at 6:12 pm

          The foreman said the jurors thought the judge would give Jodi life with parole in 25 years of life without parole of they couldn’t come to a unanimous decision. They wanted the judge to make the decision, not them. They had no idea another jury could sentence her to death.

      • Posted by Danny on May 25, 2013 at 5:36 pm

        Damn, that is a hideous thought. That skank Alyce would just get all overcome with a bad case of the vapors if a man even touched her. Her “life partner” wouldn’t like that at all. And the only man, or men, who might touch her would probably be legally blind and have seeing eye dogs.

      Totally agree with you. This disgusting man’s reasoning is so flawed and irrational that it is crystal clear that he was sexually attracted to the Demon. He has probably spent many a night fantasizing about those pics and sex tapes and staining his sheets. The above theory posted by Polk8dot is the only thing that is making sense. This nincompoop thought he could cause the other rulings of M1 and Aggravated Cruelty to be retried,too. My disgust for this foreman is growing exponentially the more he tries to explain how his malfunctioning rotten brain came to it’s conclusions.

      • Agreed, Polk8dot nailed it. Nincompoop didn’t want to raise red flags or any attention to his hidden agenda for a mistrial and therefore didn’t request clarification from the judge as was his duty. It’s all so transparent now.

    • You’re absolutely right. That’s what went through my mind when the gender breakdown of the jury was disclosed at the start of the trial. Apparently, exposed genitals will win over the facts every time. BTW: Does anyone know if the 4 jurors who voted against the DP were all men?

        All I know of is a TV interview with a male juror and 2 female jurors. The two women stated that they voted for death. That’s 2 of the 4 not cutting her a break. I just bet the 4 are males that fantasized about her in a sexual manner based on the over the top sexual aspects of this trial.

  45. Posted by Observer on May 25, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    In analyzing his TV interviews, I think the jury foreman is a 67 year old know it all who is set in his ways and thinks what he has to say is important and wanted to be on Good Morning America with Elizabeth Vargus.

    He seemed to like to hear himself talk but was really quite boring. He was arrogant when he said Martinez talked to him like a child, the public should stop crucifying “this poor girl” and criticising the jury for not making a decision and blaming the legal system for requiring him to decide if Jodi Arias lives or dies.

    But he didn’t take responsibility for signing up for a death penalty case. If he couldn’t put a violent murderess to death, he should have said so up front and he wouldn’t have been on the jury.

    • Posted by Danny on May 25, 2013 at 5:38 pm

      the guy is a shmuck. As I posted yesterday the worst case situation is somehow the oddball just off kilter weirdo’s get their foot in the door whether it be a jury duty, town hall meeting, school board, arts commission, newspaper editorial, blog, whatever it is they get in. once in their purpose is to be odd and throw out comments or statements that are awkward for the sake of being just plain-dumb-a$&. In this case the doofus waited for his grand moment (in his mind) to reveal himself to be the whack-a-doodle (during deliberations) a most inopportune moment if there ever was one. He fell for “The Spawn’s” shtick. How this dude ended up being jury foreman is a mystery unto its own, make no mistake he obviously told some whoppers in order to not miss out on this important action & “get in” the jury seat. This guy & some of the other jurist obviously do not understand what, how, when, where, a SOCIOPATH operates! that’s what makes them so EEE-VILE and dangerous. they have no guilt / shame, conscious mechanisms. none. Its all about winning & self gratification at all cost, even murder. This fellow needs to stop flapping his gums before he gets in over his head again. What a comment he made, IT’s NOT FAIR! “the Spawn” is such a sweet & vibrant young lady with a soft baby voice who was leading a perfectly normal (cough cough) life up until she met the victim! As evidence pointed out in the trial Travis was trying to get-away-from-the-demon-girl. The only conclusion I can figure is this jury foreman was watching another trial or something. ok, I am done, so angry. the reality is the convicted murderess will never walk a free person again. whatever the eventual sentence, she will never leave prison. done now. thank you.

    In the next sentencing mini trial before a new jury, Martinez needs to put a domestic violence expert on the stand to show that Jodi fits the profile of the batterer and that the batterer’s behavior escalates. Jodi admits in an email to Travis on Feb. 14, 2007 that she went into rages and kicked doors and punched out windows and hurt people.

    In July 2008 after murdering Travis she admitted to Flores she kicked a dog and in other evidence it came out that she kicked her mother when she was a teenager. Domestic violence escalates. So she went from kicking doors and punching out windows to kicking a dog to kicking her mother to stabbing Travis 27 times, slitting his throat and shooting him in the head.

  51. Thank you a million bazillion times – what an upside down world we live in when the victim and his family are re- victimized for months on end, taunted and tortured by the perpetrator who is showered with protections and expense accounts from local taxpayers.

  53. Posted by Observer on May 25, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    Here’s a funny parody from girlsjustwannahaveguns.com.

    WEST PALM BEACH, FL – In an emotional plea last Tuesday, Jodi Arias begged that the jury sentence her to a life in prison instead of the death penalty. Along with her plea she drove a hard bargain by promising that in return for her life she would start a prison book club, try really hard to recycle, continue to donate her hair to the Locks of Love charity, and teach Spanish to fellow inmates who are not already fluent – a very useful skill in Arizona penitentiaries.

    While the jury took the necessary time to write up “pros and cons” on a courthouse chalkboard – weighing the benefits of Arias’ offer against the responsibility of supporting with tax dollars the life of a psychotic felon – Locks of Love charity president, Madonna W. Coffman, hurriedly issued the following statement, pleading for Arias’ life.

    To The Jury,

    As president of the Locks of Love charity, I would like formally state that our organization begs you [the jury] to grant Jodi Arias her life in prison – so that every 12 to 14 months she may be able to donate some of her hair, assuming that she is able to maintain long, beautiful, and healthy hair when living in hell.

    Look, we get it. She stabbed her boyfriend in the shower over 30 times, slit his throat, shot him in the head, and pleaded guilty. But let me tell you something, I’ve seen a lot of hair in my day, and brunettes like Jodi are few and far between. If you sentence her to death, you will not only be taking away her life, but also eliminating any hope for us to once again be blessed with a long and healthy lock of Jodi’s natural brown hair.

    Plus, even though Jodi’s actions have unquestionably decimated the lives and happiness of her deceased ex’s friends and family – as well as the reputation of her own family – we just have this gut instinct that she will make a great teacher. In recent years America’s prisoner test scores have been embarrassingly low. By keeping Jodi around we could not only have more bi-lingual inmates, but even more importantly ones who can appreciate classic and/or modern literature.

    When making your [the juries] decision, please just focus less on the fact that Jodi committed one of the most gruesome domestic murders in the past decade and more so on that she is a “go getter” who’s yearning for a chance to change the lives of inmates and cancer patients alike.

    Foreman is probably hoping for a conjugal visit with Stabby . “Don’t come knockin’ if conjugal trailer is rockin’ “type of thing. I think Darrell Brewer would hit that stuff again, too. For the next jury we need 12 people who can objectively analyze the crime in the light of day and not be blinded by the ” she doesn’t look like a killer” factor.

  56. Posted by Tracy on May 25, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    How to not look like a killer:
    1. Wash the blood off your hands.
    2. “Disguise” yourself by putting on glasses and putting your hair up, like they do in the old movies when people disguised themselves and others actually fell for it.
    3. Lose a little weight and stop doing headstands so you’ll look even more frail.
    4. Put on librarian clothes. Hey, I know, since that’s such a stretch, you could look around you for someone who dresses conservatively and dress just like them!

    Then, WaLa… magically, idiot jury foremen not only don’t think you look like a killer, they actually feel sorry for you!.

    Maybe Jodi could discuss the above at her jailhouse book of the month club.

    And so the saga of sex lies mayhem and murder comes to a temporary and unsatisfying ending. Jurors who swore under penalty of perjury that they could impose the death penalty buckled under pressure. A flabbergasted judge stephen relayed her disappointment with a shaky voice she thanked the jury. With teary eyes the stabby one saw her plan for a life in prison filled with of book clubs and recycling dashed by a betraying jury. Her hand covered her mouth also she thought to herself crap something bad just happened….how de-edifying to have to fake out the jury again. Jenny gave a nervous smile as the yard gnome grunted with the full knowledge that his little dance in hell with jodi would most continue into the long hot summer. A stern faced juan martinez thought to himself next time i will bring a bigger hammer. As the jury left the court room the clueless forman was heard to say we didn’t understand the jury instruction blame the judge . As we sit in anticipation waiting for the return Jenny and the lawn gnome and the sharpest knife in the drawer….that would be stabby we should take this opportunity to say” pass me a beer i need to take a break from the jodi spin cycle”. Don’t know about y’all but that sounds good to me

    No one to care if she lives or dies….Literally!

      That is a comforting thought isn’t it. I saw one of the lawyer guys on HLN last week saying she’s been so knee deep in her lies for so long now, she needs years of being alone to wallow in them.

  59. Posted by Observer on May 25, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    I can’t get over Jodi Arias’s flippant attitude about stabbing Travis 29 times, slitting his throat and shooting him in the head.

    As soon as the verdict comes back guilty of first degree premeditated murder, she is before TV cameras saying she didn’t expect the verdict, Travis was a hypocrite and pedophile, she couldn’t look at his family because they looked like her abuser, Martinez was a bully and she didn’t get along with her attorneys.

    Instead of apologizing to the family of her victim and showing remorse, she displays a Survivor T Shirt which she designed and said she is a survivor of domestic violence, shows a slide show of her artwork and says if the jury lets her live she will donate her hair to cancer survivors and teach inmates how to read and speak Spanish.

    While the jury is deliberating whether she lives or dies, Jodi Arias demands makeup and goes before TV cameras for six hours telling all the major networks and newspapers that the jury betrayed her by not believing her defense, her attorneys refused to call witnesses to her bruises, Martinez harassed her witnesses and prevented her from getting a fair trial and she kicked her mother because her mother kicked her.

    She also fancies herself a spokeswoman for domestic violence victims and urged all battered women to document their injuries in case they end up in her predicament.

    • Well Observer since the demon Stabby documented every minute of her life in her manifesto I don’t understand the relevance of her urgings – There was no domestic violence – Ask any abused woman and she will tell you the hardest part is getting away from the abuser – not driving 1000 miles to be with him. It took 5 years of various story lines for Stabby to come up with one that could not be proved or disproved, had no witnesses, but one where she could manipulate a storyline for her own purposes.

      Her good fortune was getting a jury foreman who exemplified “The Peter Principle” of reaching his level of incompetence. Reading through trial law seems Homecoming Queen Hopeful Jenny made a boo-boo – She is not allowed to scare the jury with her

      “Will you Kill Her” drama question – at least that’s the way I read the instruction – Bad Jenny! Hope you get a severe reprimand for that one – perhaps repay the state for all the $$$ you are costing the taxpayers, Biatch!

      Today my ire is on the ineptitude of the jury foreman and what appears to be a total ignorance of the crime that was committed and what the penalty phase of the trial was about –
      Dumbass….She is guilty – no you don’t get to go sit down and have a fireside chat with the murderess – although I would be tempted to let her have the gun and knife she bought after the murder to give you your personal understanding of her crime if you wish – Dumbass – she was never a normal girl or young woman – she did not ever behave in a normal way – She had no mitigating factors – she will not be contributing to “bookclubs” or recycling and her artwork stinks! Why do you think no one in her family or friends came to speak on her behalf? You are truly a dumbass Mr. Foreman so why don’t you just shut your piehole and quit trying to justify your stupidity.

      • Posted by Ria on May 26, 2013 at 4:46 am

        The more I think about it, the more amazing it is that he agreed on the 1st degree premed and prior to that, they had the chance to take the death penalty off the table…again, he went along with it. That’s why I think Polk8dot is onto something with her theory up above. I would understand if he had come forward to speak and said he didn’t really feel like she deserved death and had then given some really valid reasons as to why. But the things he’s saying…being insulting to Juan, calling Stabby a “poor girl” and saying she’s been crucified by the public and was just a “normal girl”. It’s just weird and also scary that someone with an agenda like that can not only get on a jury but get himself into the foreman position.

  60. Posted by Observer on May 25, 2013 at 9:34 pm

    This is what a true crime writer who covered the Jodi Arias trial has to say about what she noticed about the foreman during the trial and in his interviews on TV after the non sentencing verdict.

    http://camillekimball.blogspot.com/

    • Thx Observer! I did follow her tweets during the trial but hadn’t gone back since the mistrial was declared. Inevitably interest will wane as this drags on and perhaps will be reawakened for the next go round – Whatever is eventually decided by the state Jodi Arias is now a convicted murderess and will be in one place with others of her kind for a very long time.

    • That’s an excellent piece. Thanks for the link.

  61. Hey Observer, you the one and same from CFJ? You’ve been missed. Now here’s something to lighten the load, could be Stabby’s neighbour in Perryville. This sister doesn’t take shit from anyone so Stabby will have to keep her mouth shut for the REST of her life.

      Essem, yes that’s me. Glad to see you here.

    • I probably shouldn’t have watched this scary video just before going to bed (it’s 1:00am down under.) Angela would make the perfect roomie for Stabby :mrgreen:

    • Posted by Ria on May 26, 2013 at 12:00 pm

      Well, she gets some points for honesty. All I can say is WOW!!!

      • Ria, I thought the same thing – I respect her more than Hodi because she is straight up about her crime – She did it – she’s glad she did it – would do it again and admits it! Actually seems happy to be going to prison to be with her own kind of animal – no remorse whatsoever!

    • Posted by pfenix on May 26, 2013 at 12:06 pm

      Saw her in MNBC Prison Lock Up and she is one f-up’d crazy bitch. Like Stabby she is also an artist in prison, drawing pictures of killing “pigs” cops and snitches. Wow, maybe Stabs can start a drawing club with her.

    • At first glance, she and Jodi look alike.

        I think Stabby has met her match in the “no soul” race with this twisted killer. They may compete evenly on the no remorse front, but am thinking that Stabby would have to defer to this one on just pure mean and intimidation.
        Love the thought of that…Stabby cowered.

    • Posted by Veronica on May 27, 2013 at 9:37 am

      After watching this video, all I can say is WOW. Although, I don’t support murderers, I have to say that I respect her. Simply, because she was straight up and she pretty much admitted to it. This is why I don’t respect JA, simply because she has never shown any remorse and had to make up a story to smear the minds of many to believe her Unfortunately, some people do and it’s sad how she manipulates people. And, folks let’s not forget that she was a witch in practice prior to meeting Travis. She may have placed a spell on him. You never know. People like her, I wouldn’t put anything pass her

  62. Posted by De-Edifying watcher on May 26, 2013 at 6:56 am

    I guess the good news is that Grandpa foreman is gone from this case. If he stupidly thought that their deadlock would result in a whole new trial for “the poor little girl” aka murdering, lying, manipulating Stabby, then good riddance to him.
    It is appalling that this senior citizen would either be unable to understand directions and if having any doubt, not ask for clarification…and also that obviously he had onboard bias about his willingless to vote a DP for this blight on society.

  63. Posted by Observer on May 26, 2013 at 7:33 am

    Jury Foreman William Zervakos is pushy, controlling and fame seeking because he broke the promise of the other jurors that they would all speak next week and appeared on all the networks so he could get his views out before any of the other jurors could.

    He has a strong personality so they might have just let him be foreman because they didn’t want the job or they didn’t want to argue with him. The foreman only has one vote. Just because he bought the mental and emotional abuse excuse, didn’t mean anybody else did.

    The other three who didn’t want to put her to death might have had their own personal reasons. Some people are too weak to sentence someone to death. Another may think she is mentally ill and can’t help it or that she is the same age as their daughter or granddaughter.

  64. Posted by Observer on May 26, 2013 at 8:01 am

    What’s scary about Zervakos is that he believes Jodi Arias premeditated the cruel heinous murder of a man she had just had sex with who was in his own home taking a shower and he trusts her enough to want to sit down with her and ask her what happened. Does he really think a normal person would do a hatchet job on a lover because he called her bad names? Doesn’t the slaughter of Travis Alexander give Zervakos a clue she is a dangerous evil sociopath as Travis said?

    • Posted by De-Edifying watcher on May 26, 2013 at 9:11 am

      He comes off as a wannabee media star now.
      Too bad, because admitting he was confused, as in, Egg’s befuddled Dx of this non-verdict, ultimately his 10 minutes of fame will soon sour into a lasting personal embarrassment.

    • Observer, seems he has discounted the horrific nature of this murder. Had Jodi just shot Travis or just stabbed him and run in a fit of rage I think we would all have a different opinion, but the planning of her crime and the killing of Travis 3 times over is what IMO has galvanized such interest in this case –
      Zervakos is a very naive man who thinks that he can somehow be “the one” to unravel the mystery of a sociopath having no previous experience with one – but make no mistake he is loving his 5 minutes of fame as well – he broke his promise to his fellow jurors to not speak about the trial until tuesday – He is a uninformed man who somehow envisions himself as “the saviour of this poor girl” – Just goes to show how easily manipulated he is. Though he would never admit it he became attracted to Jodi and shut his eyes and ears to any truths he heard about her – He obviously disregarded the severe nature of the murder and the eternal loss to the Alexander family – This man deserves no further thought or media coverage – he’s a stupid slug!
      But he’s done now – he can add this to his list of failures in his life – Stupid man! He typifies the self righteous saying “Don’t bother me with the facts, I have an opinion!”
      He’s a dumbass – Jodi is a sociopath or psychopath – they are what they are – avoid them is the best advise!

      • Posted by Observer on May 26, 2013 at 11:39 am

        If you listen to Jodi Arias’s allocation to the jury it is almost as if she is proud of slaughtering Travis. She said, “I didn’t know I was capable of such violence but I am. I did it.” Then she goes into the victim mode and says because of her “poor choices” she had to give up her dream to be a mother. I’m sure she concocted the self defense story because she wanted to walk away free. She said in TV interviews the jury betrayed her by not believing her and she deserved a second chance. She chased Travis down like a dog and slit his throat, nearly decapitating him, and never gave him a chance to live. Why should she live?

        She also says in her TV Interview with Fox 10 right after the conviction that Travis was a pedophile and hypocrite as if he deserved to die. Someone that cold and calculating will kill on a dime if she thinks a person is not buying her BS. If the jury foreman sat down with her and asked her what really happened, she’d slit his throat because he is a “hater.” He didn’t buy her self defense BS and convicted her of first degree murder, said the cruelty factor was proven and made her eligible for the death penalty. She is not grateful he saved her life for a few months.

        • Observer, her lack of remorse and the cunning planning and consistent lieing to cover up the crime tell me she is a serial killer in the making – She loved it! It’s why she appears to be proud of the kill, cannot apologize to the Alexander family and feels justified in taking his life in such a horrific way – Who made her judge and jury over this man’s life? No-one! Who thinks calling her out for all the stalking behaviors is abuse? No-one – but her – She is a very dangerous killer – and would kill again without remorse or regard for anyone but herself.
          There have been other well spoken, intelligent, attractive murderers in the past – she is one of them. People like Ted Bundy –

  65. Posted by Jeanjeanne on May 26, 2013 at 9:39 am

    She has already been asked that question during her media blitz and she defiantly cocked her head and snarkingly replied she had already told the truth about the bathroom . But the stupid, stupid man feels that he would be the one person the demon would open up too! Which also infers that he doesn’t believe her camara story. This idiot is too much to take.

    • Jeanjeanne – note my reply to Observer above – the man is all puffed up with his own importance – much like a fat garden slug – wish we could pour some salt on him to shrink him down to a puddle of goop – His 5 minutes of “fame” are over – and he can go back to his box of failures and fantasize about the demon – Don’t upset yourself about him – he’s not worth the time and trouble –

      • Posted by Jeanjeanne on May 26, 2013 at 11:43 am

        So true and well said Peony2. May the salt be the wrath of public opinion, awarenwss of the enormous injustice and pain he has inflicted, and the realization that he was duped by the Demon and can now join the likes of LaViolette and Samuels as the worst examples of mankind in the Slug Club.

    The Phoenix News Times wrote a fascinating article exploring why the reporters interviewing Arias as the jury deliberated whether she lived or died didn’t ask her tough questions.

    Three jurors who voted for the death penalty were on Good Morning America this morning. This is what they had to say:

    Three jurors from the Jodi Arias trial said the sentencing phase was “absolutely awful” after they were unable agree on whether the woman they had found guilty of first-degree murder should get the death penalty or life in prison.

    “We can’t come to a decision, and it was gut-wrenching. It was absolutely awful,” said Diane Schwartz, a retired 911 operator, who for the duration of the five month trial was known as Juror No. 6.

    Schwartz, along with fellow jurors Kevin Spellman and Marilou Allen-Coogan, spoke exclusively with ABC News about the grave responsibility that they said ended with a deadlock of eight jurors voting in favor of the death penalty and four supporting life in prison for Arias. All three said they favored giving Arias the death penalty.

    “It was a very trying experience,” said Spellman, a banker who was known as Juror No. 13. “How do you weigh a person’s life?”

    Based on what we saw and the evidence presented, it was very apparent that we weren’t being told the truth in a lot of the matters, and there was a lot of cover-up,” Allen-Coogan said, adding that she believed Arias was playing to the jury.

    “The state proved their case. It was premeditated,” she said.
    After three days of deliberations, the jury’s hung verdict was read Thursday, leaving the case open and the jury dismissed.

    “I felt like we had failed the system,” Schwartz said. “As I walked out, I remember looking towards the prosecution table. I thought, ‘They won’t even look at us.’

    “I immediately, as I was stepping down, told them, ‘I’m sorry,'” she said. “It was heartfelt because I was. I was very sorry.”

    Despite the deadlock, Spellman said he believes no matter what sentence Arias receives, she is dying.

    “She is sentenced to death no matter what,” he said.

    • These three did not fail the system – and they upheld their oath. I don’t fault them at all. I certainly understand the anguish in voting for a death penalty, it would not be easy even though it is just. They acknowledged the state proved it was a premeditated crime and they voted appropriately – Military personnel are faced with this in every war situation – to save the many some lives will be taken – I’m sure it leaves a stain of sadness in the hearts of most.

  68. Posted by Jeanjeanne on May 26, 2013 at 1:34 pm

    I swear, ther needs to be an ‘inbetween DWOP and death’ that allows the convicted to spend life on death row; 23 hours a day in their cell, no visits, no commisary pork rinds or conditioner, no general population contact to manipulate, have sex with or look pretty for no initiating book clubs, no mail, no appeals, no parole. I’d vote for that and do think, in Stabby’s case , it would be worse than death and well deserved!

    • Posted by Ria on May 26, 2013 at 3:46 pm

      That’s what Canada has Jean, they don’t have the DP but their worst criminals live as if they’re on death row. Look up the case of Russell Williams, he was an air force commander convicted of numerous rapes and 2 murders. He is stuck in a cell with no human contact, he tried starving himself then tried choking himself by sticking a toilet paper roll down his throat. The guards got to him before he was able to do himself any harm but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before he tries again.

      • Posted by jeanjeanne on May 26, 2013 at 4:35 pm

              Probably my mistake before, too! No worries. Let’s create a new acronym ‘DRWOD’. That would be ‘death row without death’. This would be a great option for Stabby, which was the point I was trying to make.

  69. Posted by Observer on May 26, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    I guess we should be grateful the eight jurors stood their ground on the death penalty and hung the jury rather than giving her life. That gives Martinez another chance to get the death penalty. The new jury will have to face the fact from the beginning that it is their job to decide if she lives or dies. She won’t go into this trial innocent until proven guilty. She will go into this trial as a convicted murderer and the murder as extremely cruel and all they have to decide is if the aggravator of cruelty outweighs the mitigating factors. They will be more objective because they don’t have to look at her for five months and listen to her crying on her pity pot for 18 days.

    • Posted by Ria on May 26, 2013 at 5:54 pm

      I think that really freaked Stabby out, realizing that some of the juror’s were willing to send her to death row.

      • Posted by Sully on May 26, 2013 at 6:47 pm

        I also wonder is part of her reaction after the verdict/non-verdict was read was the realization that she’s going to have to put on this fake abuse/domestic violence/bad family-good family/”give me victory or give me death?” nonsense again. Even sociopaths need a break.

    • Posted by Sully on May 26, 2013 at 6:44 pm

      I believe it’s for the attorneys to go before the judge and set up the process going forward. It probably gives them enough time to negotiate in case they decide not to proceed. Right now the July 18 (I think that’s the right date) day is to start the re-trying of the sentencing phase and start jury selection. Even though the DA says he is pushing for the retrial, things could happen in the next few weeks to change that. (The family decides they are willing to go for LWOP, caseload could push out the trial, motions from the DT to delay, etc.) I’m sure everyone involved in weary right now, but they could have a renewed energy and focus next month.

                  One youtube I do want to watch again is when DeMarte is on the stand!!
                  Oh which reminds me someone , somewhere on here posted a link to BPD, and said it described the demon to a “T”…
                  That will give me something to look foward to finding! lol!

      • I do believe she’s done with this case. I’m sure she’ll check in with us on other posts/cases I write about, but she’s on a strict no-Jodi diet for the sake of her blood pressure and sanity. 🙂

        The treehouse bar is definitely open for anyone, though!

        • Queeneggo – do give Carol our superior baby sitter and bar keep a big digital hug from all of us cause I think she needs it! She did such a good job keeping all us egglets out of the cupboards and in our nests and out of your cupboards when you were otherwise occupied.
          No doubt she needed a break from keeping us in line and also from the disappointment of the non-results of the trial –
          That said tho’ she is doing the right thing – While the demon languishs in jail we need to do our lives! For me that means go swimming with a friend, go to yoga to keep my body moveable – take dancing lessons to prepare for my nephews wedding this summer and go hit some balls at the golf course – Of course all that is fun – so the maintenance part of hair cuts, pedicures – shopping and cleaning house and having family over for birthday dinners and girlfriends out for birthday lunchs – blend into a busy life – And I hope that’s what Carol is occupying herself with now – We’ll all “conversate” when she’s in the mood. Till then – keep your sunny side up!

    -Skankville, Arizona. 2015

    In the matter of Stabby Einstein vs. Decent_Folk_Everyhere, the Arizona Supreme court has denied Jody Arias’ petition to sell her book for profit. The book is titled,
    “Shankin’ Skankin’ n’ Stankin’ – Revenge of a High School Drop Out Waitress”.

    Wow

  74. Posted by Observer on May 27, 2013 at 5:54 am

    Martinez will NEVER strike a plea with the devil because Travis’s family want her to get the death penalty. Jodi Arias will not agree to a plea of life without parole because she believes she did not get a fair trial and wants the verdict overturned in appeals court.

    The Alexander family has already told Martinez they want him to retry the sentencing phase. The system was set up to give the prosecutor a second chance to get the death penalty if the first jury could not agree. Martinez is going to take advantage of that.

    This gives him a chance to sit down with some of the jurors and find out what kept four of the jurors from giving her death so he can address it in the next penalty phase.

    • TStabby Einstein, sitting in her cell for 23 hours a day, she will not be in good shape from the next mini trial, then Juan can say got it. Juan Martinez will win second round.

    • Posted by Sully on May 27, 2013 at 8:12 am

      I’ve thought the same thing. I’m curious to hear more of the jurors’ stories. Both defense and prosecution “could” benefit from this. However, if Stabby continues to run the show, she won’t benefit as much.

      Other than the gullible foreman who was totally sucked in by the 12-year-old-in-braids/blonde-vixen/bespectacled-schoolmarm, some of the other jurors who have admitted they voted for the DP were still torn up making the decision.

      We have learned:
      1. She was on the stand waaaay too long. (The more she talked, the more lies she told, and they all picked up on that.)
      2. Jury foreman has a grudge against Martinez (he made me feel stoopid, waaahh), he thinks Stabby is a normal young woman whose trajectory after hooking up with that bad Morman sent her to Planet Homicide (uh huh), and apparently you have to be a serial killer like Manson or Dahmer to get the DP (Manson is serving a “life” sentence and Dahmer sentenced to 15 life terms but was killed by fellow inmates in the slammer)
      3. Women CAN vote for the DP

      Martinez may have to throttle back on the aggressive cross-exam of defense witnesses in case another doofus sneaks in on the next jury (although pit bull pressure worked on Stabby and ALV).

      Judge needs to speak v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y when she explains what happens in case of a non-agreement. (Sheesh! I believe the jury instructions were also WRITTEN. Does no one READ anymore?)

      Prosecutor needs to figure out a way to show that Stabby was NOT verbally abused, and that Alexander probably reached the end of his rope on the 1 text out 80,000 between the two of them.

      Let’s see what happens in Round 2.

      • Posted by GBPL on May 27, 2013 at 8:43 am

        Its going to be a looooong time before I get to hear Juan’s take on things….ughh I think the Demo picked up on my eagerness to hear from Juan and the jury that set this thing into a tailspin.

        It will be very interesting to see how this thing pans out. Interesting indeed!

  75. Posted by Observer on May 27, 2013 at 9:33 am

    The three jurors who voted for the death penalty told the media:

    1- No jurors believed Jodi’s self defense story.
    2- They noticed Jodi’s story kept changing the more she talked.
    3- All jurors believed the prosecution proved its case of first degree premeditated murder and extreme cruelty.
    4- Juror No. 6, who is a mother, voted for the death penalty because she felt Jodi had no remorse, was dishonest even in her allocution and was playing the jurors.
    5- All jurors noticed Jodi was drawing or writing and uninterested in the proceedings until the defense came up.
    6- Some jurors believed Jodi was verbally abused, some believed she was mentally abused and some believed she was not abused at all.
    7- Juror No. 6 admired Martinez because he did not use notes and had a great memory.

    • Posted by De-Edifying watcher on May 27, 2013 at 10:01 am

      It’s good to know that jurors noticed Arias’s disinterested posture in the courtroom. She even did it during closing. Bizarre !!
      Hope some of them also noticed HeavyD blatant unprofessional posture too.

      If grandpa foreman possibly was a covert anti-DP advocate, I hope during Voir Dire, Martinez finds ways to flesh out that issue with prospective jurors.

    • Posted by GBPL on May 27, 2013 at 2:28 pm

      Thanks for your “observations”!
      I too am glad that the jurors were paying attention to the drawings and whatnot during anything that wasn’t directly related to her!
      Martinez was pretty adapt to getting up there and remembering everything he needed too… had to calm himself down a few times.
      But when something is just SOOO over the top obvious as this case was,..hard to imagine he kept his composure so well.
      How he kept from choking Laviolett is beyond me!!! 😀 😀

      • Posted by PFENIX on May 29, 2013 at 7:07 pm

        JM did bring her up in the closing in a disparaging manner, and someone who wasn’t believable. You could tell he REALLY disliked her.

  76. Tara Kelley, alternate juror 17, has been answering questions via Twitter over the weekend. Here is some of what she has to say:

    1. Do you believe she was abused in any way?

    Definitely not!

    2. Did you believe her “fog” story?

    Absolutely not!!! Was definitely not believable!

    3. Regarding the jury ‘betraying’ her:

    It’s all about her!!!

    4. What did you think of LaViolette’s testimony?

    Didn’t like her! I found her rude trying to spar with a prosecutor!

    5. Regarding Nurmi wanting off the case:

    Definitely can’t blame him for not wanting ti represent her!!

    6. Regarding the juror who got kicked off for a comment she made- Tara confirmed the comment was about how if they can $300/hr for an expert you would think they’d get us more comfortable chairs. She also indicated that the jurors were not the ones who turned her in.

    7. How did you feel about the pedophilia accusation?

    Disgusting and ridiculous! I asked her for proof in my questions to her! Of course she said she didn’t have any!

    8. Did anyone buy it (the pedophile comments)?

    I don’t think anyone bought it!!! Too far out there!

    9. What did you think about her claim of ninja skateboarders?

    Ridiculous! And then Juan kept referencing the hoard of skateboarders and it was sooo hard not to laugh out loud!!!

    10. How did you feel about the 2 minutes of silence?

    Brilliant!!!

    11. How did they ask you about the media issue with Juan (Signing/ photos)?

    They didn’t mention it was Juan! Just asked a general question!

    12. Do you feel Juan was too aggressive?

    He definitely had moments but I think it was passion!!!

    13. Have you seen the killer laughing and doing headstands in the interrogation?

    What made me most mad was when she said: ‘Gosh Jodi you could have at least done your makeup.’

    14. What did the jurors think about ‘child abuse’ claims?

    She was probably spanked but weren’t we all?

    15. Do you think the trial dragged on too long?

    Definitely!!!!

    16. (Nurmi) was basically calling you all liars and that you were going home at night reading, watching, etc.

    I heard enough in court! No interest in goin home to hear more and we weren’t supposed to anyway!

    17. Was Bill Z. the foreman throughout the trial or just the guilt phases?

    Foreman was chosen at the guilt phase.

    18. Travis’ anger all sounded normal relationship to us. You too?

    Yes and I really hope to be able to explain what I think happened and what that May 26 text was about!!

    19. Did it creep you out the way Jodi stared at you whenever you would enter or leave the courtroom?

    I never paid attention! I looked down when I walked in and down when I walked out.

    20. What about how she looked at the jury when answering each question?

    I understood it was probably their strategy! Didn’t phase me I was at the other end anyway!

    21. What do you think of her tweets? If you had known all that you know now, would your opinion be he same?

    Yes, because I’m not surprised!!

    22. Have you seen all the interrogation videos?

    Not all but quite a few.

    23. Have you seen the media ‘blitz’ Jodi did before the sentencing? If so your thoughts?

    Ridiculous but that’s Jodi wanting the spotlight!!

    24. How hard was it for you to sit through it all and not vote? Were you able to take part in discussions or did you just have to sit and listen?

    I was devastated! Cried as soon as we got out of the courtroom! The alternates were taken to a different area.

    25. Did the 4 jurors acknowledge the Alexander family, like the ones that were crying and mouthed ‘I’m sorry?’

    I don’t know! I was balling and looking down! I was too sad to look at them!

    26. Did it freak you out how close Jodi was to you during allocution?

    We were closer in judges chambers.

    27. You were in chambers with her?

    Yes, quite a few times!!!

    28. Did you know she had a shock band around her waist?

    Nope, had no idea!!

    29. Is Dr.Horn as beautiful in person as he appears on TV?

    Yes!!!!

    30. What did you think of the 7 dwarf testimony?

    I have to admit I did laugh when LaViolette said she didn’t know how old the dwarfs were! Was funny!

    31. Were you shocked at the time-out comment?

    I was irritated when she said this! But he was snarky with her too! Was a long 10 days or whatever it was!

    32. Did you think the Locks of Love/book club/recycling was odd?

    I did because I didn’t think you could just start your own program in prison!

    33. Was it frustrating aitiing through Alyce & Samuels testimony knowing they were making $300 an hour spewing #blah?

    It was frustrating period!!

    34. Have you seen the video yet of TA telling the story of being robbed w/gun to his head that was identical to Jodi’s ninja story?

    Yes!! We saw the video w/o sound and the story was so important!!

    35. Did you think the gun used was her Grandfather’s?

    Absolutely!

    36. Did you ever notice Jodi peeping up through her hair to see the crime scene photos?

    No I didn’t! I was too upset myself seeing those pictures!

    37. What do you think came 1st- gun shot or knife wounds?

    Idk that it truly matters…he suffered so much pain either way! But I think the stab definitely did!

    38. How did you feel about Jodi when she was drawing and not paying attention in court?

    Beyond irritating!!

    39. Did you see the parent’s interrogation video where Mom said Jodi was growing pot on the roof?

    Yeah I think those tapes would have helped.

          • Posted by GBPL on May 27, 2013 at 7:48 pm

            I must confess…I just found a unedited interrogation video, with a woman …I thought it was all Flores…

            BUT … You can see exactly when and where the seeds of her story took root.
            “Is it that you want to protect Travis? Is there something you don’t want to be known about Travis?”

            The SUPER long pauses of the questions posed,and her sick mind twisting and turning trying to spin this into something of a positive for her story.

            “If its something the family doesn’t want to know about Travis..maybe it will give them closer” or something to that effect!

            Here’s the link…

            ALSO….BOMBSHELL!!!!
            Who here knew that she had a shock band around her waist??!?!?

            I want to hear from the person that held the controls to the band!!!!

            “What kept you from zapping the piss out of her every time she told a lie!?!?”

            😀 😀

            That person is an Oak…and Oak I tell you!!! 😛

            • Posted by Ria on May 28, 2013 at 4:16 am

              I had heard about the shock band! I guess it didn’t cramp her style like leg shackles do:)

            • Posted by Ria on May 28, 2013 at 4:34 am

              The video is interesting, I’d never seen it before. Jodi admits she knew how to make Travis mad in 5 seconds, that was “his emotion” he showed to her and she says “her emotion” was being sad. I had always thought she intentionally made him angry on a regular basis because it made her feel like he cared.

            • Posted by Sully on May 28, 2013 at 8:14 am

              Wow. I think you’ve hit a BINGO, GB! I think she DID get motive ideas from the interrogator.

            • Posted by Observer on May 28, 2013 at 10:10 am

              This video was taken the day after Jodi Arias was arrested in Yreka and was feeling sorry for herself after spending the night in jail.

              I thought the female interrogator was brilliant as she tries with an empathetic voice to appeal to Jodi and pleads with her to give the Alexander family closure and admit she murdered Travis and explain what happened since she wouldn’t tell Flores.

              This is a prime example of how a cunning sociopath uses tears to try to manipulate the female interrogator. She doesn’t deny killing Travis. She just stalls by pretending like she is remorseful. Jodi cries for herself to try to get the female interrogator to feel sorry for her as she reminisces about how Travis bought cheeseburgers for hungry people and dogs. When the interrogator asked if it was something she planned from day one, she doesn’t answer.

              When the interrogator asked her if she would take it back, she said she would do everything to prevent it. This is leading up to the whopper she is about to tell Flores about how sahe tried to save Travis from the murdering Ninjas.

              When she refuses to confess to the female cop, Flores comes in and asks her why she called him in and she starts telling him her family is in danger from the people who killed Travis and she wants him to protect her family. He says disgustingly her family is in no danger and he doesn’t believe her ridiculous story but at least she admitted she was there when Travis was murdered and that he will see her in Phoenix when she is arraigned.

              • Posted by GBPL on May 28, 2013 at 1:15 pm

                Oh I forgot about the cheeseburgers for hungry people and dogs,.. she got so bizzareily (is that a word?) off track and such random stories, that you forget for a seond why she is there!..then she goes..
                “now what was I talking about….oh yeah…”

                I probably should watched them in order…

                But that #2 one from David Lohr…unedited version,.. Esteban asks her why? Was it jealously? Anger? Was it because he was going to Cancun without you??
                her reply…

                “No thats not the reason… i mean….I could afford to go to Mexico anytime…”
                something to that effect.

                Hmmm now i can’t find it!!! His heavy-fricken-sighs are hilarious though.. he’s got the patience of Job I’d say…

      Thank you, Red! It really helps to know that most of the jurors, if not all excluding the nincompoop foreman, were intelligent, thoughtful, insightful, and not misled by Stabby’s lies and voodoo.

    • Posted by Sully on May 27, 2013 at 7:21 pm

      Two thumbs up, Red! I would love to hear her theory about May 26 text and how the crime played out. Hopefully, she’ll share on Dr. Drew.

    • Excellent. Thanks for posting, Red!

        I’m “in”! I have given myself multiple “time outs” since the non-verdict, but I did veer somewhat yesterday when I looked at that video, above posted by Sierra, from a group of people who are trying to find out where Stabby stashed/buried/pitched the gun. Of course, this led me to another website, and three videos later, I’m itching to plot out her trail on Google Maps and head out there with a shovel!

        This morning sanity returned, and I’m back at work instead. 😉

        I’m totally with you GB on “Red, I’m about to click on yet another youtube…please talk me down!”

She actually appears, in the beginning, to have some remorse but it quickly goes away and I realized she was faking it to buy more time for thinking up a lie.

    Yesterday Nancy Grace played a tape of an interrogation with Flores I hadn’t seen where Jodi said she had a “nervous breakdown” once when this “older man” she lived with was arguing with her and she was sobbing and trying to leave and he blocked her way because he didn’t want her driving so upset. She’s obviously talking about Darrell, who claims she changed after she got involved in PPL. He said they were in love but she told Flores they were roommates and had separate bedrooms.

    It sounds to me like she was the same way with Darrell as she was with Travis and Juan. Whenever a man confronts her behavior she becomes unhinged.

    The jury foreman said he believed Jodi was a normal girl with normal relationships until she got involved with Travis. I hope Martinez can find a way in the next trial to bring in testimony that shows she didn’t change after she met Travis, but that she always got upset when her parents, a boyfriend or anybody called her on her behavior. Example: when her parents grounded her when she wouoldn’t follow the rules and she dropped out of school and moved in with Bobby Juarez.

    I don’t think they will have any trouble finding 12 jurors in Maricopa County who doesn’t know everything about the case. I live in Maricopa County. It is one of the biggest counties in the nation. When I meet new people at social events, I ask them what they think of Jodi Arias and most of them don’t even know who she is or if they do they only know the bare facts and don’t care about her or the trial.

    The local radio and TV stations just have a few second blurb during the news on what happened at trial and the newspaper gives facts but they don’t speculate or report rumor or talk about it all day long like HLN. Most people I know don’t watch HLN. I think people all over the world know more about the case than we do here.

      Thats crazy that there are people right there that haven’t kept up with the trial..
      But good points about her and her issues,.. Darrell is such a creep, and i”ve not seen any pictures or heard from Bobby Juarez.

      One clip from last night was showing where she is spending her time until the trial resumes, and it sounded like Estrella jail is where she was,and will be until it begins again.
      I was hoping it would of been hardcore prison until then..she is after all convicted!!!

      Maybe Vinnie Politan got it wrong! HOPEFULLY!

    • Posted by Ria on May 28, 2013 at 9:45 am

      I agree Observer, none of my friends or family are following the trial at all. If they’ve heard of her, they have no idea what’s going on. Since we’re so immersed in it we tend to think everyone else is but not so.

    • Posted by Sully on May 28, 2013 at 10:38 am

      I keep thinking of all the things Martinez could bring up (based on feedback from the jury, and in particular the foreman), and I’m not sure how much he can go into, since it’s the penalty phase. I think the foreman brought in a personal bias/viewpoint that shouldn’t have been part of the mitigating factors (there were actually NONE, just Stabby’s statement). The aggravators have already been validated by the jury, just the mitigation part to see if saving her life is a stronger factor than the heinous act she committed.

      (I keep wondering if the DT decided since the judge didn’t grant a mistrial, that the failure to provide mitigation would be a slam dunk appeal. – i.e., poor legal representation. And since the jury didn’t sentence her to DP, they were a little thrown, as well.)

      I’ve never seen a case which has three parts to a guilty phase, so I’ll be interested to watch how the mitigation do-over goes.

      • Posted by Ria on May 28, 2013 at 4:00 pm

        I’ve never seen a 3 part like this either Sully. A good thing is, when the new jury finally does get to deliberate, they won’t have burn out…they’ll probably be more likely to take their time and try to be unanimous.

  81. Posted by Observer on May 28, 2013 at 11:05 am

    Arizona has retried four death penalty sentencing cases and three came back for death and one for life. This will be the fifth retry. I believe they will get a death verdict because these jurors only job will be to determine if she lives or dies.They can weed out jurors who like the foreman who think that should be decided by the judge. This go round she won’t be innocent until proven guilty. She was proven guilty of first degree murder with an extreme cruely aggravator. They don’t have to sit through 18 days of Jodi telling about every sex act she has performed since she was a teenager and they won’t have to listen to the sex tape over and over. I’d like to find out what the jurors thought about the defense trying to interpret Travis’s words on the sex tape as that of a rapist and pedophile.

    Jodi is back selling art on JodiAriasisInnocent.com web page. Thought they stopped her from doing that????

    • Posted by Ria on May 28, 2013 at 4:32 pm

      Don’t worry Sharon, none of the losers who visit that site can afford her “artwork” anyway.

    • Posted by PFENIX on May 28, 2013 at 10:02 pm

      They should, but not certain when the Son of Sam laws go into effect and who polices that. However hopefully the Alexander family lawyer is going to continue with the lawsuit against Jodi so all the money she makes through family and friends gets turned over to them.

      • Posted by PFENIX on May 28, 2013 at 10:47 pm

        The Alexander family civil suit against Arias also insures to close any loop holes in the Son of Sam laws which I am sure Jodi will try. Plus I would love to know who is going to file taxes from the donations.

  83. Can the demon receive mail at Estrella? Does anyone know the address? Would be nice to bring her down a notch by inundating her with cards and letters telling her exactly what we all think of her, including the fact that she could never teach English or Spanish to anyone, since she’s illiterate herself (“conversate”, “cease the day” “who’s” instead of “whose”…and so on). Might help us pass the time between now and June 20th.

    • Posted by Ria on May 28, 2013 at 4:34 pm

      I read that they’re only allowed postcards Carole, no letters. I think she mentioned that in one of her interviews also.

    • Posted by PFENIX on May 28, 2013 at 9:59 pm

      Ask and ye shall receive Ms. Hollywood…from that horrid site of her family and “supporters”.

      Jodi Ann Arias
      P458434
      c/o Estrella Jail
      2939 W. Durango
      Phoenix,
      AZ 85009

      As you can now only send a postcard (no letters), and it has to be metered (not a regular stamp), here are the guidelines (copied from the jail website) to make sure the card gets to Jodi ok:

      * Stamps are NOT allowed, postcards must be metered.

      * Minimum size requirements are 3.5″ by 4.25″.

      * Maximum allowable postcard size 4.25″ x 6″.

      * Should be written in blue or black ink only. (No other color accepted).

      Been considering creating postcard art to send to Jodi, where you can click and print on your printer. Not sure how to do that or if I could do that on WordPress.com

      • Posted by GBPL on May 29, 2013 at 8:55 am

        ACCCCK!!! Did you do a virus scan after venturing on that site…
        take a shower and also the neccessary spitting into the west wind!??! LOL!!!!

      • Thanks, PFENIX. Hope everyone drops the DEMON a postcard. Each of our messages would be like a slap that wipes the smug smile off her face, which we’d all love to do but, unfortunately, can’t. How ’bout it, Eggies? I’m sending mine off today!!!

    • Posted by Kris Franke on May 31, 2013 at 10:35 pm

      Carole, I’ve seriously considered sending this wingnut an honest assessment of how evil I believe she is; given her narcissism, JA can’t resist anything we send her way. It’s a great idea.

  84. More Time-Passing Suggestions:

    Just popping back in with another thought re the Great and Powerful Izzard (see Cake or Death post). Actually, not exactly about him, not really about him at all… he’s just my jumping-off point, if you will. Anyone in need of a little levity right about now should also look into the œuvre (or should I say œufre) of the Irish comedian Dylan Moran. He’s done some standout standup:

    Like Totally: tinyurl.com/cgrsju2

    What it Is: tinyurl.com/6u5c56y

    Monster: tinyurl.com/7hdls7p

    But what I mainly wanted to point out today was this two and a half minute gem, which was produced as an extra for his BBC series “Black Books.”

  85. Posted by Observer on May 28, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    I thought it was odd that in her slide show presentation to the jury Jodi Arias showed pictures of herself with Bobby Juarez, Matt McCartney and Darrell Brewer and his son. This proves to me that her identity is being Someone’s Girlfriend. She is so stuck on herself that she thinks the jurors will spare her life because she shows pictures of herself with three boyfriends, one girlfriend and her family who love her. She didn’t spare Travis’s life and he had a grandmother, seven siblings, in laws, numerous aunts. uncles, nephews, nieces and friends who loved him. He also spent his life loving, caring and helping others while she spent her life leeching off others. Travis’s life was much more valuable to spare than her worthless life.

      ughhh I guess I’m going to have to look for the right video and i’ll just mute it… The one that was on youtube that night was shot from a spectators view. But it never showed the screen what she was showing. … but it showed Bobby Juarez in it?!?
      Going to find it later tonight!

      • Posted by Ria on May 28, 2013 at 4:36 pm

          Ha!! Later turned out to be too long! I was just in the midst of #5 from David Lohr, and its the one where she is doing headstands….then singing from what I read a song from Dido… THEN… I didn’t know she busts into “Oh Holy Night” in the interragation room.
          From one end of emotions to the other… unbelievable!!! I’m still waiting to hear Tara Kelley’s theory! …..

      • Posted by Laurie on May 28, 2013 at 5:07 pm

        GBPL – photo of Bobby Juarez was the same one that you have probably seen on HLN’s website. He has his shirt off and Jodi is sitting next to him on the floor.

        • Posted by GBPL on May 28, 2013 at 6:31 pm

          Well I just did a google search and wow…. What is with these gender confused friends she happens to pick??
          Bobby looks like a girl in the 2 pic’s I saw,..and Donaman…well… is Donaman!

          • Posted by PFENIX on May 28, 2013 at 10:06 pm

            One of her cellmates in the Estrella Jail was Ann Campbell, who Jodi tried to slip those magazines with the hidden messages. Ann Campbell’s jail girlfriend was Donovan and that is how Jodi met her. Jodi would be considered very pretty in prison and no doubt the butch lesbo’s could easily be manipulated by her.

            • Posted by Ria on May 29, 2013 at 4:32 am

              DonoMan’s Twitter profile pic is her with some pregnant girl dressed in orange jail clothes and DonoMan has her hand on the girls belly and her other arm around her.

    • Posted by Ria on May 28, 2013 at 4:35 pm

      That’s true Observer, it was like a timeline of her relationships. Maybe she wanted to prove to the jury she was capable of having boyfriend’s without hacking them into bits, like she did to Travis.

      • Posted by PFENIX on May 28, 2013 at 10:54 pm

        That is what I was yelling at her during her BS “Save my worthless life please” diatribe. See I didn’t kill all my boyfriends, just the best, kindest, smartest, most successful boyfriend who rejected me and was such a big MEANY! Just like Meany Martinez and his yelling at me…scrambling by Einstein brain.

        • Posted by Kris Franke on May 31, 2013 at 11:41 pm

          Exactly. Let’s not forget she did “survive” killing Travis. It takes guts, determination + patience to brutally slaughter another human being. Give credit where it’s due! These thoughts I plan to share in my postcards to Ms Evil.

    • Posted by De-Edifying watcher on May 28, 2013 at 5:35 pm

      Yes, Arias was/is a professional leech and parasite.
      In several interrogation clips, she mentions spending time “here and there”…always in or with someone else’s home, car, job, computer, religion, camping trip, PPL trips. She talks about being broke, owing large amounts of money to her parents, her friends and of cousre, Travis.
      Remember Stabby tesitfying the “she” had lent money to Travis. Obviously another BS lie. A lie that Jenny and Bluto knew was a lie since they sure as hell watched those interrogation tapes where she said she was flatbroke and Travis even gave her food along with money, books, PPL leads, and a sweet deal for his BMW.
      No surprise that she has leeched onto Dono-she/he.
      Arias will always feed off others. Just another reason for the DP.

      • Posted by GBPL on May 29, 2013 at 6:28 am

        Great post De! I was trying to reply via phone , but it was giving me fits.. glad I found it again!
        Can you imagine the people cringing everytime she called or “popped in”..
        “egads…its here again… what can we give her so she just leaves…”
        I’m envisioning they had her listed in their phones as “Dog Tick” LOL!!!
        Or leech,….or parasite…. or….

    • Posted by Kris Franke on May 31, 2013 at 11:12 pm

      No doubt. I was surprised she didn’t put up a pix of HER + Travis saying: “Look, I love him + See me? I’m too pretty for Death Row”. I like the postcard idea even more now. I feel like utilizing my 1rst Amendment right where JA is concerned + have the urge to buy a whole stack of postcards.

  86. Posted by Laurie on May 28, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    I saw in earlier comments that people are now watching all the unedited police interrogation videos of Jodi. I watched them a couple of weeks ago and wish I had taken notes about comments that she made back then that later evolved into sonething presented at trial. The most interesting one was when she said that Travis had said mean things to her but it was no big deal. Then she said the meanest thing he ever said to her was when he told her that ‘she hurt him worse than his father’s death’. Bingo!! That starement is from the 5/26 messages from Travis. She stole the gun from her grandfather two days later. Of course, on the day of the interrogation Jodi’s words meant nothing to Flores but clearly that message from Travis was when she decided to kill him.

  87. EGGY you are brilliant , and it shows in your writings!!! WOW.. But, .I also have to give Kudos to All of Eggys posters,, you are all ALL wonderful.. I am in awe, and I love, LOVE reading here…. Thanks sooo much..

      Its sooo much fun to go back and read older blogs/posts… Eggy brings out the comedian in everyone it seems!
      Its such a relief to read/comment without controversy… refreshing indeed!

  88. The difference was… she WANTED Travis.. she wanted to marry him and he did NOT want her …She was then, going to show him… and she did… she killed him horribly. I hate her…

  89. I love the topic… What’s a demon got to do to be executed these days????? Eggy,, do you ever rest??? I was so disappointed with the jury,, then you come up with your topic… I never,, and I mean I never knew anyone with your amount of humor… THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU…. You make the hard stuff something we can handle…

    Drumming fingers on the table. Still waiting to hear Tara Kelley’s (Juror #10) theory on what happened the day of the murder and what the May 26 text message meant. Unfortunately, the talking heads on Dr. Drew didn’t ask her about it and they even went as far as asking #10 and #6 if they had questions for the Behavior Bureau. Wha?? We’ve been listening to the BB rehash psychological opinions for 5 months. We now want to hear from the jurors! Hopefully, #10 will be interviewed elsewhere and we’ll get to hear her theory. Bummer.

    • Posted by GBPL on May 28, 2013 at 7:47 pm

      whatever happened to juror #5 ?? I want to hear her take on the lack of progression..
      But something is telling me that she was pro defense?… so maybe its just as well I don’t hear from her.

      • Posted by Barb on May 29, 2013 at 6:10 am

        GBPL- I read that juror #5 appeared to like the Beast and was seen mouthing the word “No” and shaking her her to assist the Beast with her answers to questions.
        I forget where I read that, perhaps here.

        • Posted by GBPL on May 29, 2013 at 6:25 am

          ahhh seems like I do remember that now… Just as well then! I don’t want to hear from her afterall!

    • Posted by Ria on May 29, 2013 at 4:36 am

      Tara even brought up having a theory Sully but Dr. D didn’t ask her to elaborate on it. Does she have Facebook? Maybe she’ll post it on there. I don’t have FB so I can’t check to see if she does.

      • Posted by Sully on May 29, 2013 at 6:54 am

        I know she’s on Twitter, and probably Facebook. (And, I think I said the wrong number, I think she’s #17. #10 was on JVM and After Dark – it’s hard keeping these straight!)

        • Posted by Ria on May 29, 2013 at 7:41 am

          I do believe Tara was # 17. I’m going to look her up on Twitter.

          • Posted by Kris Franke on June 1, 2013 at 1:03 am

            I loved #6 Diane Schwartz; she found NO redeeming factors w/JA period + was pro DP. She outlined the aggravators: “brutality of crime, coverup, lack of remorse, untruthfulness All the way thru” v* mitigators: “abuse?, age, no criminal history”. Diane didn’t believe JA was abused period, by Travis or her family. She stated other jurors (older/pro-Life) didn’t believe physical abuse occurred; yet, these same jurors had a question mark w/verbal/emotional abuse being inflicted upon poor JA by Travis due to the text/email exchange. Diane also surmised these “elder pro-life” jurors feelings their age “felt life more precious”; hence remained unmoved in their positions. I really liked alternates #17 Tara Kelley + #10 Carol Gosselink: they both described bizarre “stare down” episodes w/JA. Both alternates seemed very perceptive re JA’s manipulation/deception + weighed elements of the crime fairly w/out prejudice. Both were also for DP, so definitely concur w/Tara +wish they had been part of the deliberations! Tara said bon dr Drew she thought could she could have been persuasive w/other jurors. Sure couldn’t have hurt + w/these two would have brought DP count up to 10.

    Stabby needs a new look for penalty phase 2, don’t you think?
    Thinking she should ditch the hair curtain/Jr. High ponytail.
    Maybe she do a major Locks for Love donation right before the trial and come in with shaved head ala Joan of Arc at the stake.
    Or, since she needs to mimic others, go for Dono-thing’s fetching hairstyle.
    Speaking of hair, Perky Jenny needs a new “do” too. Her cocker spaniel-w/straightener look needs to go. Some days all she needed were two tiny red bows at the temples to look like she just came from the groomer’s. And those Niagra Falls bangs must be covering up a seriously big forehead. The sheer weight of them may be causing the bald spot.
    HeavyD…? He is beyond help.

    Someone even commented on it on the youtube page itself…

    “I love psychology and did anyone else notice at 0:36:35 she states ” I was a litle bit jealous but that wasnt the reason” BOOM! That comment, if you dig deep into it, tells alot. Why didnt the cop say “The reason for what?” She admitted it RIGHT THERE in my eyes. And in my opinion, its EXACTLY why she killed him. She was so obsessed that she did not want him to go to Cancun with another girl. That right there is her EXACT motive.”

  94. Ahhhh, ((sighing with relief)) Queen Egg, you did it again! This is just what the doctor ordered. Favorite line: “This turdsicle of a case.” Hahahahaha…funniest line ever! 🙂

    Just coming off my five day drinking binge in Phoenix! Didn’t get what I wanted while there, which was “DEATH TO THE DEMON!” but had a good trip overall. After the disappointment of missing the reading of the non-verdict, as well as the disappointment of the non-verdict, we left the bar by the courthouse and my sister and I drove by TA’s house, which is only like 5 minutes from here my sister lives. The new owners have a huge blue organza ribbon on the Mesquite tree out front. Then there are smaller organza blue ribbons throughout the neighborhood (on posts at the park, and on people’s front doors). I wish I had taken a picture to post for y’all. I felt a little funny while I was there, though, like I was spying on something that I shouldn’t have. It was kind of cool to see their community pulling together for TA.

    Well, here’s hoping the July jury doesn’t get pulled in by her BS; and here’s hoping the Perryville Prison guards are meaner than the demon, and that her no interviews and 23 hours per day in her cell will drive her to do what the jury couldn’t do for her! Cheers everyone! ((gulp, gulp)) Ahhh!

    • Posted by Ria on May 29, 2013 at 4:29 am

      Welcome back Bea! I was wondering about you yesterday and whether you’d made it in but the bar by the courthouse sounds more fun:) How cool that you drove by Travis’ house, it must have felt a bit surreal being so close to it all.

      • Thanks, Ria…I was reading through all the comments on the old post yesterday, and was again, just so thankful for a place for us all to go and vent! Funny how my cyber friends are on my mind as much as my face to face friends! LOL I was wondering how everyone was doing after the big disappointment, but it looks like everyone has recovered as well as can be expected!

        It really did feel like I was looking (spying?) into someone else’s life by going by that house. You can really see the affect this had on the neighborhood. How cool is it that those ribbons are all over the place? I may be going back up soon. If I do, I’ll go back and get a picture or two to post. Great to talk to you again! ((hugs!))

      Hey Bea!
      Glad your back, and got to enjoy the bar! hehehe..
      Thats crazy about his old house and neighborhood…I bet its surreal for the people living in his old house.. Nice to hear they are supporting the entire justice for Travis..
      I bet they, like us can’t wait till its all over!
      Carol,a.k.a eggbeater/barkeep is M.I.A. … taking a break for the sake of her blood pressure and sanity!… Which btw I’ve heard on the radio that listening to the news too much can raise our blood pressure, AND our levels of cortisol which in turn adds to weight gain.
      Sooo I think she was on to something when she said something to the effect of “Mean while our butts are getting bigger and our hard drives burning up!..”

      • LOL! GB,Great to ‘see’ you again! I have to say, it was kind of a relief to sign off and just relax by the pool for a few days. I can’t believe how tense we were all getting! So sad that I missed the courtroom, but the downtown Phoenix bars are kind of cool at 11 in the morning! LOL The bartenders all said they were really busy with all the JA trial watchers. So, regardless of the drain on the taxpayers of AZ, at least the Freakshow brought in some tourist income!

          Hopefully you will run across this again,..but I cracked up your comment about the downtown bars being cool at 11:00 a.m.! Ha!
          That also made me think of the person..*so sorry for always forgetting* posting the
          bar drinks in honor of the case.
          I’m SURE some of the bars had to instill something like that since it’s generating more business, and to give people a smidge of satisfaction when downing a “Juan More” or any number of the hilarious drinks..
          (I think that was supposed to be a detox one of sorts)

          I’m going to guess that it was Phenix!

      Bea!! Thanks for the insight on the neighborhood. I’m glad they haven’t forgotten and still focus on the real victim.

      • Sully!! So glad to see you! It was really great to see that they are so supportive of TA and his family. I saw an interview by the new owner’s and they said that regardless of what had happened in the home, they felt a loving ‘feeling’ or ‘spirit’ of the house itself (I can’t remember what their exact words were). I guess that shows that the evil that infiltrated that home was just a temporary invader, and that the goodness that the man was and continued to strive for is what is real! (Does that make any sense?) I was really happy to see their support of him, and the neighborhood’s unity in supporting the Alexander family. One more thing that was kind of weird is that about half of my sister’s friends go to his ward, the other half go to the ward where JA was supposed to be going…they have nothing good to say about JA. My sister is not LDS, but her 12 year old daughter goes to church with them (most of our family is LDS…we can’t get in because we like caffeine and alcohol, LOL! Just kidding!)…My sister said she had no idea she was so connected to this case or she would have followed it more closely! LOL
        ((Great Big Hugs)) great to talk to you again. 🙂

    OMG. Thank you Dr. D and God bless the jurors on his show tonight; Smart, solid, and believable, were they. My faith is restored in the ‘system’. The jurors’ ability to clearly see through Stabby and her Milky Way of lies, to reflectt on Stabby’s lack of remorse as an aggravating factor, to weigh the agony snd grief of the Travis’ family as a mitigating factor. AND, the jurors’ acknowledgment that they realized much of the evidence (stalking) was clearly omitted is reason enough to give this jury a standing ovation (foreman ommitted)! BRAVO! I applaude the jury’s intelligence and their excellent BS detectors. There is new hope and faith that Tavis will have justice.

    • Posted by Ria on May 29, 2013 at 4:41 am

      I agree Jean, they were both very articulate and intelligent. I thought Tara’s account of the stare downs was very interesting, maybe Stabby felt threatened by a young, attractive female juror. She said Stabby would stare at her so she’d stare back then Stabby would write things down, she felt like Stabby wanted her kicked off the jury.

      They definitely renewed my faith in the system though although I know Diane said she feels changes need to be made and could talk about that forever!

      • Posted by Sully on May 29, 2013 at 7:01 am

        And, Ria, did you see Juror #10 on JVM and After Dark? She also mentioned a “star down” with Stabby and says she has no idea what prompted it.

                If there ever was a doubt about her BPD and psychotic nature, this stare-down crap of the very people judging her fate confirms it.
                Her arrogance is boundless, rendering her alleged IQ useless.

                • Posted by Sully on May 29, 2013 at 10:33 am

                  I take the IQ score with a grain of salt since she scored very high on the communication piece, which was rolled up into a composite score. Reading between the lines, I think it means her “intelligence” is lower but her verbal skills are higher giving an average which is the total IQ score. Just a guess on that, though.

                  • Agreed, Sully. I don’t think she’s all that smart. Her total IQ was only 112 according to Dr. Demarte, and that really isn’t THAT high. In fact Low Average starts at 85 and High Average goes to about 129. Einstein’s IQ was estimated at 160, so 112 is hardly an Einstein-ian IQ! That chick has the same delusions about her IQ as she does about her entire life. Perhaps that’s why she got caught so easily…she overestimated her intelligence? Also, as you said, IQ scores are subjective depending on the tests given.

                    I read a statistic once that said, “60% of Americans consider themselves ‘hot’. 80% of that 60% are obese.” What does that tell us about ourselves…we believe what we want to, not what is real. JA has a bad case of believing that she is smart…and it just isn’t so.

          Jodi was trying to do a hexing spell on the jurors. Apparently it worked somewhat on Old Billy Boy Foreskin Foreman.

  96. Posted by Observer on May 29, 2013 at 9:28 am

    Wendy Murphy, a former prosecutor and defense attorney, is right on the money in her article about why four jurors couldn’t put Jodi Arias to death.

    Here is an excerpt from that article that says it all:

    IT WAS ALL ABOUT THE MALE JURORS
    Arias’ attorneys knew they were dealing with a particularly bad human being when they first got involved in the case, which is why they spent so much time trying to change the vibe in the room and distract the jury’s attention away from the gruesome evidence. They knew that getting the jury to stop thinking about Travis Alexander’s nearly decapitated head would be difficult, but there was a good chance male jurors’ emotions could be hijacked if they turned a somber judicial proceeding into the Supreme Court of Pornography. So they borrowed a page from the OJ Simpson playbook only OJ used racism as a highly stimulating tactical narrative to distract jurors. Arias’ lawyers used porn.

    For eighteen days, the jury and the public were subjected to irrelevant nonsense about oral and anal sex that had nothing to do with the crime but created an erotic fog in the room that interfered with the trial’s ugly truth about the murder of a man who was slaughtered to death like an animal. Arias preened on the stand, wearing just snug-enough shirts to reveal her breast implants, and allowed her hair to drape sensually over her shoulders as she described how she performed all sorts of sex acts. Any red-blooded male juror would have had to fight hard not to get tingly imagining Jodi bent over moaning while being penetrated. That same man would struggle to move, emotionally, from very pleasurable sexual fantasies to the ugliness of death by lethal injection.

    The men on the jury might have felt differently if Arias had admitted that she was the sexual aggressor who used sex to abuse and control Travis Alexander, and to manipulate him into staying involved in their relationship. Had Travis been alive to tell the truth about Arias, the jury might have understood more clearly that she is like so many perpetrators of domestic violence who manipulate and control their partners.

    Arias doesn’t look the part of a batterer much less a murderer, which makes it difficult for people to accept the prosecution’s narrative. But while most perpetrators are males, plenty of women engage in domestic abuse against men and kill their partners in retaliation after being rejected. It’s the ultimate exercise of pathological control and true domestic violence to kill someone as a way of saying: “If I can’t have you, nobody can.”

    As with many cases of domestic abuse, it took Travis a long time to finally end his relationship with Arias. Evidence suggests the final straw for Travis was in late May, only days before the murder, when he sent an angry email to Arias about something she had done. Some speculate it was related to the audiotape she secretly made of her having phone sex with Travis. Given her propensity for manipulation, it wouldn’t be surprising to learn that she threatened to send the tape to a leader in the Mormon Church if Travis ever left her.

      Great article Observer. I think I posted this one a while back but I can’t remember, it explains why Jodi was always able to talk Travis back, as far as the sex goes.

      • Posted by Sully on May 29, 2013 at 10:46 am

        Thanks, Ria. I have always believed rather than a player, that Travis was naive. No offense to any Mormons, but when I hear some of his young Mormon peers refer to him as T-Dog and a player, I kinda smile. So within the context of his probably conservative peer group and religion, he might have been a player. However, I think he was inexperienced compared to the general population of his peers. Stabby (not raised a Mormon and converted to Mormon-lite), on the other hand, has admitted to early teenaged sexual experimentation and experience, and I think she knew exactly how to manipulate him into uncharted waters and then used that later to blackmail him to stay with him. And when he refused (May 26), that’s when she hatched the plan to kill him and to hold on to the recorded sexual conversations which were conveniently used in her defense.

        (It’s my opinion, that regardless of the lurid details of their “relationship,” he wanted to remain true to his religious roots, and she was preventing him from doing that because she was clinging to him like barnacles on a ship.)

        • Posted by De-Edifying watcher on May 29, 2013 at 11:33 am

          Agree, Sully.
          Travis was uninitiated to anything like “her.”
          Even the friends who called him a flirt and player were unaware of the breath and scope of her insidious brand of “relationship sex.” She used it on Travis like a noose. He was caught like a bug in the spider web.
          Arias was a mongrel dog who been eating out of others’ garbage cans for years, with no “owner” *ever* wanting her to stay on.
          And eventually Travis didn’t either.

        • Posted by Ria on May 29, 2013 at 12:10 pm

          I agree Sully, many of his close friends were already married and with kids so maybe in their eyes, he was a player. I also think he suffered a lot of rejection though. There was the girl he had bought the engagement ring for, she wasn’t interested in marrying him because she didn’t care for the whole PPL thing. Mimi agreed to go to Cancun but had no romantic interest in him. The defense made it sound like he ran around using women and breaking hearts but he got his heart broken plenty!

        Good read! Well I need to finish it later! But I read the complete part of the link, then it says to read another link of the sociopath..which I didn’t even get halfway thru. I’ll save that! 😉

      • Damn, Ria…that may be the scariest article I have ever read in my entire life! I don’t know if I will be able to sleep tonight…1 in 4? YIKES!

    • Posted by Sully on May 29, 2013 at 10:37 am

      She said pretty much the same thing in an abbreviated format on the JVM show last night. Other atty talking heads (defense attys, that is) vehemently denied that that was the defense strategy, which CONVINCED me that WAS the defense strategy. Thanks for sharing, Observer.

    • Thx Observer! That is a great article and what I find reprehensible is that defense lawyers who presumably applied themselves in university for the purpose of obtaining an education on the LAW which would be the means of keeping civilization on a fair and equal basis for all and obtain justice for heinous acts and punish those who broke the tenants of basic human rights now pride themselves on committing whatever underhanded tactics them can to allow vicious murdering criminals a freedom their victims never received. Disgusting!!!!
      To me the defense team are covered in as much slime and puss that oozes out of the putrid swamp their reptilian bodies crawl out of – as the perpetrator! They as much as their client are venomous snakes.

      • I am hoping that Juan will use the interrogation video where Aries is telling Officer Flores if she hurt Travis she would beg for the death penalty!

        • Posted by GBPL on May 29, 2013 at 11:56 am

          ooooo me too!!

          How crazy is she describing “IF,..and I mean IF I were to kill him, I would do it in the most humane way possible…shooting him to do it quickly”

          Verrrrry ironic scince she shot him last and made him suffer so terribly……
          Oh and lets not forget that she said practically..”Duhhh I would wear gloves”

          she makes my blood boil!

          • Posted by Ria on May 29, 2013 at 12:06 pm

            Does anyone think she may have actually had gloves on? I know they found that one big hand print but I never heard about any other blood prints of hers.

          • A normal innocent person would never say “IF” – they would say “I would NEVER shoot him!” – I Loved him! IMO – To me the use of “IF” means you are considering it or have considered doing it. She may have had gloves on part of the time – but they can get in the way so could have taken them off if she ever used them.

    Dr. Kristina Randle is very educated on the subject of psychopaths and Jodi Arias. She refers to an article called:

    Confessions of a Sociopath
    She’s a successful law professor and a Sunday school teacher, with a host of family and friends. But her interpersonal calculus centers on how to manipulate and outmaneuver the many people in her life. Welcome to a world of ruthless cost-benefit analysis, charm, and grandiosity.
    By M.E. Thomas, published on May 07, 2013 – last reviewed on May 19, 2013

    http://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/201305/confessions-sociopath

    Here’s what the sociopath says about Mormons:

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a sociopath’s dream. Mormons believe that everyone has the potential to be godlike.

    • Posted by Sully on May 29, 2013 at 11:07 am

      The perfect storm.
      I had read the story in Psychology today, and the author was very candid. I’m sure no one in her circle knows she is a sociopath. That’s why it is so insidious.

      • Posted by De-Edifying watcher on May 29, 2013 at 11:40 am

        “Perhaps the most noticeable aspect of my confidence is the way I sustain eye contact. Some people have called it the “predator stare.” Sociopaths are unfazed by uninterrupted eye contact.”

        Whoa !! Yeah !!!

      • Sully I read some of it – not all, but thought that likely there are degrees of sociopathy just like anything else in life. Not all will be murderers but all will be manipulators. The idea being that all must be for the benefit of the sociopaths desires and needs.
        The one I knew too well was not a murderer (at least not yet) but had absolutely no compunction to tell the truth about even the most trivial of things – was a master manipulator and everything was to his benefit. No remorse, no compassion and absolutely no empathy for another living creature.
        Had no feelings for his parents, his siblings nor his own children – Had no friends and yet on the surface was attractive, intelligent and charming. Was very successful in short term relationships but had no depth but did have a huge ego.
        Could weave the most elaborate of stories to evade answering any question and keeping the questioner off balance following a trail of breadcrumbs through a forest of lies until the original question was long forgotten in the thick of his lies.

        • Posted by Sully on May 29, 2013 at 2:01 pm

          The ability to lie unflinchingly right to your face (and in Stabby’s case, on a national stage) is creepy and mind boggling.

          • What I made note of was how she would stop and consider what she was going to say on every interview – My guess is that she would search through her mental references for what sort of response was “normal” since she has no capacity for feelings on her own. For most of us it’s a hard concept to grasp.
            Could be its a more basic instinct of a predator animal.

    • Posted by Kristen Shumway on May 29, 2013 at 5:02 pm

      As a 63 year-old Mormon, I can’t let your comment about my religion being a “sociopaths dream” stand. You need to know a lot more, but I’ll only take up space for a little more. This is OFFICIAL Mormon doctrine from our 13 Articles of Faith: ” We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men…If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.” I fail to see how that make us sociopaths. It was what Travis was trying to live, and what Stabby could never live.

      • Thank you, for the comment from a Mormon, I have family that are Mormons,

      • I have family that are of the Mormon faith, Baptist are are pretty much the same.

      • Posted by PFENIX on May 29, 2013 at 8:25 pm

        This might have been a reference to an earlier post last week where an excerpt from a sociopath criminal who mentioned how easy it was to manipulate and take advantage of Mormons when he was going to school in Utah, and he gave examples of how he did it. Don’t think it was a slam against Mormons, more that sociopaths take advantage of people’s kindness, goodness, compassion, etc., which happened to Travis and his friends.

        • Posted by Sully on May 29, 2013 at 9:08 pm

          I don’t think the author meant Mormons are sociopaths. I think she meant that Mormons look for the best in people and will give people the benefit of a doubt, which could make them the prey of a sociopath.

      • Posted by Observer on May 29, 2013 at 10:23 pm

        Kristen, I am a Mormon also. You need to read the article to understand what the comment meant. It is written by a sociopath who tells how she takes advantage of Mormons because they are trusting and see the good in people.

      • Kristen, I think u misunderstood. The article is written by a functional sociopath who is a successful attorney and a Sunday School teacher in the LDS Church. She chose the LDS church because of the trusting and honest nature most members embrace, it can make them vulnerable. This makes them a sociopaths dream, because trusting people who seek the good in people (“Whatever is true, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, fix your eyes upon these things”) can lead them to be easily manipulated. She wasn’t saying that members of the LDS Church are sociopaths. The article was really good, but it wasn’t attacking Mormons. ☺

  98. Good afternoon Eggo & Everyone! (Nice to see you Bea!)

    WHAT a disappointment that Tara Kelley didn’t get an opportunity to share her theory on Dr. Drew last night. Boo Hiss…hoping he’ll have her back again and let her spill.

    Thought both jurors on DD were exceptionally level headed, articulate and very smart…not fooled by the Stabbymeister as were some of the male jurors. Loved the article upstairs on that subject, and thank you for posting that Observer! (No offense to the male gender whatsoever…I think it would be very difficult for men in general to put any woman to death simply because they are taught to protect women from a very tender age.)

      I think Mr. Zervakos had a hard time wrapping his around the concept of “the booty call”, which is all too common these days. To him, he viewed it as Stabby being emotionally abused. And I also think he comes from a point of view that a man never, under any circumstances, addresses a female the way the Travis did…obviously he’s never come across a Demon like Stabby before. Travis didn’t even say the F word and didn’t have a history of speaking to anyone that way.

      The female jurors seemed to understand that Stabby pushed Travis’ buttons and inspired an anger in him that nobody else could. Stabby enjoyed doing this. She admitted in one of the interrogation video’s that she came from a family who yelled all the time. My ex was from a family like that and they think yelling and getting angry is an expression of love. Stabby enjoyed knowing she could make Travis as angry as she did. When she realized he was done with her, once and for all, and he wasn’t going to fall for her routine of pissing him off then sucking back up to him, she snapped.

      I really want to know Tara’s theory!!!

      • Ria you’re right on this – Stabby enjoyed having some control over Travis – whether it was positive control through sex or negative through anger – just as long as she had some emotional control over him.

        • Posted by Ria on May 29, 2013 at 3:24 pm

          Yes Peony, she probably created a vicious cycle with him that he didn’t know he was involved in.

          • Good way to keep him off balance don’t you think? He’d never know if he was dealing with “sweet Jodi” or the “evil Jodi” – since she even admits she could spark his anger in a minute she must have had her fun out of lighting him up.

      • Hi Ria Peony2…yes, I think BZ and perhaps the other three jurors were having difficulty with the “friends with benefits” concept during the trial… A generation gap mind set.

        In fact I think Stabby herself was having a LOT of trouble with it. Although she allowed herself to be in the position to have JUST no strings sex with Travis after they broke up, I believe she thought she could lure Travis back into “the way we were” with the aloof disassociated attitude toward intimacy. She is so mechanical in her every move…and Travis felt she used him…remember…”I was just a dildo with a heartbeat for you”. Dr. Drew talks about interpersonal terrorisim and I believe that is exactly how she tried to manipulate him into staying in any type of relationship with her.

        I find this whole story so damn heartbreaking on many levels. These two young people caught up in an extremely toxic dysfunctional relationship that ended in such a brutal horrendous slaying. And the saddest part is that JA feels he deserved it.

        • Hi Red! I’m not sure the “friends with benefits” was a problem but maybe – I think the foreman might have had that problem and yes it could be a generation gap cause someone said he likely bought into Alyce LaToilette’s version of events. But there are some in that generation that have no difficulty with multiple sexual adventures –
          Maybe you are somewhat right about Stabby – I think she used sex as a weapon – and had been honing her skills with several men before Travis and got down right pissed off with him when it was not working –
          Like others have said I think Travis was somewhat naive and not experienced with sexual matters. Further I think he had regrets and wanted to get back to his religious teachings so he could find a wife who was not as experienced or wild as Jodi. When he told her there would be no more sex parties that he was going to be taking other women with him to find his one true love she exploded with rage – “If I can’t have you – no one will”! Her rage seems to be because she could no longer control him.
          To me it’s the only explanation that makes any sense at all – the murder happened very fast – she murdered him 3 times over – she premeditated it – and she tried to cover it up and disappear before his room-mates came home otherwise she would have stayed and cleaned up better –
          Yup – she was obsessed with him – yup she was furious that she could not control him – yup – her only remorse is for herself and yup – she would kill again.

  99. random obs concerning Jodi and the Detectives… Both Flores and Rachel (didn’t catch her last name) tried really hard to sweet-talk Jodi into explaining how/why things happened, because the Alexander family needed to know what happened and why in order to ever find any sort of closure, that they were all in terrible pain now and only Jodi could help, because only she had the answers, etc, etc.

    I think the Jodese translation of all of this was, “I can cause more pain to more people by providing as little information as possible, by only providing false information. Here’s something specific that they want me to do, therefore I will never ever do it, but it’s kind of cool how hard they’re trying to be nice to me so that I will maybe cooperate with the investigation.” For years now she’s refused to say anything that might help the family, and continues to find ways (subtle and otherwise) to torture them. Seems she never had much contact with them before killing Travis, so I don’t think they were actual targets initially. But, during the Yreka interviews, I think she began to see them as primo collateral damage. I hope they realize they need to look elsewhere for closure — nothing Jodi says or does, or fails to say or do, has any real-world significance, and the last thing anyone should do is give Jodi the impression she has any power.

    It must be pretty damn galling to have to sit in a tiny room with Jody and try to appeal to her non-existant sense of compassion/human decency. I was really hoping they had a Bad Cop waiting in the wings. A really, really BAD cop.

    • Posted by Ria on May 29, 2013 at 1:20 pm

      Yes, I absolutely agree! When Det. Flores tells her she can get a lawyer at any time she says “But then I won’t be able to talk to you right?” and he say’s probably not or something along those lines. So then she backs away from asking for a lawyer and say’s it’s important to her to speak to him because she knows he’s in close contact with the Alexander’s. She took pleasure in knowing how much pain they were in. No part of her wanted to relieve that pain and she still has no interest in relieving it…she wants to to continue torturing them.

      I was wanting Bad Cop to pop up too, they were way too nice to her!

      • During the bit about Jodi maybe getting a lawyer she also mentions something along the lines of “maybe just for some advice… not that I would necessarily do what he says.” GRRRR she makes me so want to hit something! Also it send shivers down my spine watching Detective Flores, who seems like a genuinely good guy, indulging Jodi’s blatant flirting, even holding her hand when she was pointing out the scars from her cat etc… Is there such a thing as vicarious barfing?

            hand holding:

            http://tinyurl.com/ppjrubn

            starting at about 24:30

            The cat discussion was actually unrelated (day 1, interrogation video 3, 26:30, on David Lohr’s YouTube page). In this clip (day 2, interrogation video 15), Jodi is explaining how her finger was cut in the course of struggling with the Lady Ninja, and how the finger is weird now… only later did she start blaming Travis for the crooked finger. “CTR” (as in Jodi’s CTR ring which no longer fits on her weird finger) stands for “Chose the Right,” sort of a Mormon motto. CTR rings, t-shirts, etc, are common LDS accessories. I’m not LDS, but have been pretty chummy with quite a few. I’m as baffled by the religion as I am by every other religion, but the Mormons I’ve known are among the hardest working, most out-going, community-minded people I’ve ever met, and I certainly respect them for that. I wonder if Jodi has been officially excommunicated yet, and I wonder if she’s still getting visits from a local Bishop (I think she said one of the few people she was able to see in jail was the local LDS Bishop…).

            Hm. Just did a Google search for info on that, and found instead some Jodi Is Innocent nonsense about how Travis was killed by the church because he was a high-ranking Mormon guilty of sexual sin. Um, no, not high-ranking. Every male over the age of 18 is more or less automatically a member of what is called the Melchizedek Priesthood (unless he’s publicly transgressed in some meaningful way). So, Travis was a male over 18, also a Returned Missionary (significant but hardly unique), and an Elder (= Male Over 18, regardless of whether or not he’s a member of the Melchizedek Priesthood). This is all pretty standard stuff, and does not mean that Travis was in any way a high ranking Mormon. Not to belittle him in any way, but he was pretty much rank and file.

            • Posted by Observer on May 31, 2013 at 11:26 am

              I doubt if a Mormon bishop visits her in jail because there is no LDS ward in the Estrella Jail and her bishop is in Yreka, CA. She told Troy Hayden someone from the LDS and Baptist churches visited her once. I don’t believe a word she says. If she was excommunicated, we wouldn’t know. I doubt if she is interested in the LDS church now Travis is dead. She only joined because she knew he only dated Mormon women.

        • Bwahahaha. ..’vicarious barfing’ that was great Fissco!

          • Make that Fiasco. (Stupid auto correct!)

          • I Jodi m be lying, manipulating the Jury, but the Lord is who she needs to worry about, she could use scripture to her advantage. We need to pray for discernment for the jury to see through what she could do. Pray for Juan and Judge Stevens, jury.

  100. Agreed fiasco – at this point Jodi’s only way to control anything is by keeping her emotional hostages off balance with her lies. So that gives her her “high” now.

  101. Posted by Observer on May 29, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    I think Jodi Arias wanted to be just like Travis Alexander. He was everything she was not: religious, kind, caring, a true good samaritan, a motivational speaker, successful businessman, owned his own home, had a BMW, and tons of friends and seven brothers and sisters and a grandmother who all loved him. She had no friends, a family that shunned her because of her violence and she was dead broke and cared about no one but herself.

    When he saw her for what she was: an evil sociopath, she planned to kill him. She stabbed him 29 times and slit his throat and shot him in the head because she wanted to make him suffer all the pain she imagined he caused her when he dated other women and rejected her. When she was arrested, Jodi Arias suddenly took on Travis’s personality and gave him hers. She told the media she smiled in her mugshot because that’s what Travis would do. She told the cops and media and jury she liked to help people, that she was never obsesased with him, jealous and possessive but Travis was. She wasn’t the sexual aggressor. He was.

    She claims she wouldn’t hurt a spider but he was violent and abused her. She claimed the finger she hurt while stabbing him to death was actually broken by him. She claimed she killed him three times over because she was fighting for her life. In reality, he was fighting for his life against the woman who intended to kill him and lost because she stabbed him in the heart when he was the most vulnerable, naked and helpless, seated on the floor of his shower unable to take the knife away from her and defend himself.

    Her hatred for Travis even after she slaughtered him is still evident by the way she dirtied his name and reputation in court and still talks about him. Even as the jurors deliberated whether she lived or died, she tells the media Travis is a hypocrite, a pedophile and her abuser, when as Wendy Murphy said she is the abuser and he was the victim.

    She not only hates Travis Alexander for rejecting her but his family, his friends, the media and the public who want Justice for Travis. She calls us haters but she is the most hateful of all. She is extremely dangerous and if not put to death will kill again, even in the confines of prison if she feels rejected or abandoned.

      “When she was arrested, Jodi Arias suddenly took on Travis’s personality and gave him hers.” Ya know, I knew she was turning the tables and put herself in the victim role, but it didn’t occur to me that she was actually swapping personalities. Yikes! Even more scary.

    • Posted by Ria on May 29, 2013 at 3:17 pm

      Truer words were never spoken Observer! Also, Travis was very passionate about recycling and books…two of the things she claims she wants to do in prison.

    • Posted by PFENIX on May 29, 2013 at 8:44 pm

      Yes, she lived vicariously through Travis and thought if she was with him, she would be like him. Ahhh NO! Travis was facing the fact of what she was but not enough to be swayed by her as she came back to his house and seduced him for the last time so she was his last and manipulate him into a position where she could kill him.

    • Posted by elsinor44 on May 29, 2013 at 10:22 pm

      Jodi definitely lives in a through-the-looking-glass sort of world where everything gets either interpreted or expressed through her own peculiar crazy filter. Or maybe not “looking glass,” but more like a “funhouse mirror” in the least-fun funhouse on the planet. One of comments from the interrogation that has for some reason stuck in my head was when she told Det. Flores that she gave her car back to the bank. Like it was somehow her decision, and NOT that the bank repossessed the car because she couldn’t make the payments.

      It takes a truly evil person to begrudge someone YOU LOVE the things they are blessed with through no fault of their own, such as FAMILY.

  102. Posted by Observer on May 29, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    obsessed

  103. In case you didn’t catch this. We can all write the DEMON directly. Here’s how:

    Jodi Ann Arias
    P458434
    c/o Estrella Jail
    2939 W. Durango
    Phoenix,
    AZ 85009

    As you can now only send a postcard (no letters), and it has to be metered (not a regular stamp), here are the guidelines (copied from the jail website) to make sure the card gets to Jodi ok:

    * Stamps are NOT allowed, postcards must be metered.
    * Minimum size requirements are 3.5″ by 4.25″.
    * Maximum allowable postcard size 4.25″ x 6″.
    * Should be written in blue or black ink only. (No other color accepted).

    (ABOVE INFO COURTESY OF PFENIX)

    Hope everyone sends her a postcard telling her exactly how we feel. It’s one thing to vent with (may I say brilliant) like-minded people here, but it would be infinitely more rewarding to let HER know what an illiterate, psychopathic whore she is. Each of our messages would be like a slap that wipes the smug smile off her DEMON face, which we’d all love to do but, unfortunately, can’t. How ’bout it, Eggies? I’m sending mine off today!!!

    • Posted by Observer on May 29, 2013 at 4:18 pm

      I wouldn’t waste my time or money. She will just feel important that people love to hate her. The punishment she needs is to be left alone. With no one writing or visiting her.

      • Glad you said it first Observer! I felt the same way – responding to her in any way gives her some power – even if its negative it reinforces her belief that she is important and that people are noticing her.

        • Posted by Observer on May 29, 2013 at 10:38 pm

          When a reporter asked Jodi how she felt about the public’s overwhelming criticism of her, she said something to the effect that she doesn’t mind because if she wasn’t important to them they wouldn’t feel how they do about her. Sociopaths have no conscience, no guilt and no empathy. Other people’s opinions don’t count. She would just ignore what was said and count the postcards and tweet, “I received 100 postcards today so I have lots of people thinking of me.”

      • Posted by PFENIX on May 29, 2013 at 8:54 pm

        If it makes someone get over her send away your postcards.

        Was thinking it’s better to send them off a couple of years after she is in prison after the hanger-on’s and most of her family have left her. On the flip side of the coin, agreed Observer, ignoring her is what she will hate most.

        • Posted by Jeanjeanne on May 29, 2013 at 10:52 pm

          Please, do not send postcards to a sociopath. No matter how much you say that you despise them, to a sociopath, you are, in thier twisted and sick mind, really declaring true love. Do not underestimate a sociopaths ability to give their own mind what it needs to survive; approval, importance, and always, justification. Stabby will become stronger with each and every card. If you really want to make her suffer, IGNORE HER!

    Tara Kelley posted her theory on Twitter, if I can figure out how to copy and paste it onto here I’ll do so.

  105. Posted by Ria on May 29, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    Tara Kelley’s theory, from Twitter:

    I believe on May 26, Travis was trying to break it off completely with Jodi! She got mad and threatened him with the sex tape! He started calling her those names b/c he thought if he did she would finally leave him alone, especially when he said u r the worst thing that ever happened to me! He was hoping that would make her stop! It only made her really mad knowing he no longer wanted her! She couldn’t take it! She planned the burglary and started planning his eath!She wanted to make sure she was the last he ever had sexually!She wanted that power of knowing she was his last

    • Posted by Sully on May 29, 2013 at 3:03 pm

      Thanks, Ria! (You my have to send a note to Red to stop searching the web for this.)
      I’m glad Tara K. put it together and successfully waded through a pile of poo in order to figure it out.

      • Thanks Ria…I saw the message upstairs that you found Kelley’s theory.

        Here I thought she had a major “bombshell” breakthrough…

        And I’m not convinced that Travis had sex with Jodi on June 4. There is a lot of contention surrounding the two memory cards found with the camera in the washing machine. I personally don’t think Travis knew she was in his house until that famous picture of T-Dogg was captured. I believe he was ambushed.

        Trouble is we’ll never know what really transpired, we can only surmise. Similarily as with the Casey Anthony trial, the truth will not be uncovered as both of these women are sociopathic liars who lied, schemed and covered up to save their own miserable hides.

        • Posted by Observer on May 29, 2013 at 5:09 pm

          My husband and I agree with you. There are no pictures of them having sex. She could have taken the naked pictures of him as he slept and put the camera on a timer and took the naked pictures of herself. We don’t believe he knew she was taking pictures of him in the shower until he turned and she blinded him with the flash, he slid down and covered his genitals by crossing his leg and as he sat on the floor of the shower she stabbed him in the heart. She had said in her journal that it was like a stab in the heart when a man cheated on her. So she planned to stab him in the heart in the shower where she could wash the blood down the drain and have little cleanup. She didn’t count on him fighting and trying to get down the stairs and outside for help.

          • *BOC has a really great theory regarding this very topic over in her sandbox. Summarizing… she believes the photo’s that were deleted and date stamped on June 4 were from another time all together. These deleted and recovered photo’s were reminiscent of the sex tape that was played in court, not June 4. Additionally, the memory card that was shown in court was not the card compatable with Travis’ camera.

            I’ve always felt there was something very hinky about that camera being found in the washer. Why would someone go to all the trouble of falsely date stamping nude photo’s, delete them and then put the camera through a cycle in the washing machine? Wouldn’t you just take the memory card? Why were there two? A black rectangle one that was the memory card for Travis’ camera, AND a blue square one that was used in court along with testimony. (camera & memory cardchallenged here)

            Check out *Blink On Crime for this very interesting theory.

            • HUH? Red – I guess I missed where there were two memory cards – I also did have a hinky feeling though about the photos on the bed and wondered if she sneaked in and did some manipulation for her own purposes.
              The ones of Travis in the shower seem true and I recall her saying he would not like naked pictures of him so likely squatted down with the water pouring over him and that’s when she struck –
              Time to Chk out BOC – Thx!

              • Posted by Ria on May 30, 2013 at 6:55 am

                No offense to Blink’s fans but her blog makes my head spin too much, I can’t read it anymore. She throws these cryptic messages out there that nobody really understands, they’re always very evasive and completely confusing. Deciphering her posts is as frustrating as doing a Cryptic crossword puzzle for me, I hate those things!!! I’m not big on conspiracy theories either, it would involve such a big cover up for law enforcement and a possible mistrial when it would have been to the prosecutions advantage if they could’ve proved she entered without Travis’ knowledge.

                I think she manipulated him back into the sack, like she’d done 1000 times before. There were probably tears, apologies and “let’s do it one more time, for old time’s sake” lurings. She knew it was Travis’ habit to shower after sex so she timed it just right. Otherwise, she couldn’t guarantee he’d be in the shower at the most opportune time for her to kill him.

                  thanks for the heads up on BOC site… one thing i don’t need is cryptic messages!! lol

                  • Respectfully,

                    Theories are just that. Since we will not likely ever know the truth of what exactly happened on June 4 many of us following this trial have taken it upon ourselves to investigate all avenues to try to make sense of an horrendous, and at least to me an unprovoked slaying of a young man named Travis Alexander. Taking advantage of what is available out there, for perusal in arriving at a logical conclusion.
                    (If that is possible with JA)

                    I personally find it prudent to include in my own examination all relevant discussion and thoughts from contributors in the many arena’s available for this and other crimes. It’s important to me to consider contributor’s thoughts and information brought about. True that not all contributions smack of logic or are of much value, hence the site that boasts pure lunacy IMO and JA’s innocence.

                    In sharing we gain valuable knowlege. Much of what we absorb is like heading to a buffet table, we take what we want and leave the rest. To each their own, it makes the world go round yanno?

                    Having said that, I find among this arena to have encountered some of the most endearing wonderful folk who through their own contributions during this fiasco have kept me sane while inducing me to think outside the box. Most especially our host, Eggo who captures the essence of a complex trial with extraordinary brilliance that easily makes this site IMO a real winner for all of us who participate, lurk or simply need to laugh. (I know laughing here has been a blessing and a balm for the horror of it all) Eggtree and the people here are a gift that I treasure.

              Yes!Yes! This is what I thought from the beginning! To me the shower photos do not look like Travis was posing.I don’t think he had a clue she was there until the very last one. Probably why she adopted the Ninja story. She thought in her whacked out mind that she was some sort of stealth ninja,sneaking in the house and probably remaining for some time without detection.I have always felt Travis was looking at some sort of weapon in that last shower photo.To me his expression is pure terror.

              • I was watching on you tube at “Perryville prison “Stabby Einstein new rules, and she does warrent the death penalty. I hope Juan proves by using all the interrogation video’s I hope the Jury does not fall for Stabby Einstein lies. and manipulations, she could haveanother jury hung.

  109. Posted by Observer on May 29, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Carol Gosselink, Juror #10 who was an alternate, told Jane Velez Mitchell that she knew who voted against the death penalty and it was the four older jurors. She thought it was because they know how precious life is because they are approaching death. She said she would have voted for death, that she thought Jodi was evil, not mentally ill, was never abused, had no remorse and was so manipulative. If Tara Kelley and Carol Gosselink had made the jury instead of two of the elder jurors then they may have been able to convince the two holdouts to vote for death. The older jurors may have bonded and voted the same.

    • Observer – I am an elder – same age as the foreman on this jury and I think you can tell I am very vocal about this witch getting her just desserts by getting the death penalty! So I don’t think it’s altogether an age thing – it’s more of an experience thing – since I’ve run my own companies I have likely dealt with more and can read a bullshitter a mile off. I can also assess a “con job” when I hear one.
      I have no patience for sub-humans who maliciously kill other humans – no patience for the Jodi Arias’s or Casey Anthony’s of this world – The rest of us don’t need to pay taxes to feed and support them – is my opinion – I’d rather those dollars we all pay into are used for programs to better the common good of humanity – things like better health care – good roads – housing – school programs –
      I find it disgusting that Mumbo-Jumbo by the defense, the Dr. Samuels, the LaToilettes get these ” creepoids” off and the rest of us have to support their “poor-me” pity parties through the courts with endless appeals –
      I am definitely FOR the death penalty in cases of premeditated murder –

      • Posted by Ria on May 30, 2013 at 3:39 am

        I agree with you peony. These jurors did find her guilty of 1st degree murder so they’re not wholly sympathetic with her. One of the juror’s said they did feel Travis had been emotionally and verbally abusive toward her and, for them, that was a mitigating factor.

      I am also a senior citizen, and as such, I remember when we never had to lock our doors. It was back when criminals were dealt with promptly and appropriately. All 50 states had the death penalty and used it. There are those who say that the death penalty isn’t a deterrent, but guess what? Nobody who has been executed has ever killed again! We all know Stabby will kill again if she can, in or out of prison. She needs the death penalty. Foreman Z. is just a dirty old man. Not all old men are dirty, but he evidently is, and Nurmi, being one himself, was hoping for that when he stacked the jury with older men. By Z.’s own account, you can tell he never listened to the judges instructions, or any actual evidence, he only focused on Stabby’s fantasies (lies) and obviously enjoyed them.

      • Very true…no one who has received the death penalty has ever killed again! I love that…common sense and all! I read an article recently that says we have to stop arguing with the anti death penalty people about the death penalty as a deterrent and start calling it a punishment…the most severe punishment on the most severe crimes, used on people who have no place on this earth. In other words, s punishment for JA.

  110. I am an older person, and have been close to death several times as a cancer patient. My love for life is deep and sacred, however, I would have voted for the death penalty in this case because Jodi is like a cow with mad cow disease–it is never going to be okay and is a danger to others. You put it down, say a prayer, and move on. I was impressed with the juror Diane on Dr. Drew last night. Sheis proof that age can bring wisdom and grace.

    I agree that many of the public who want Jodi Arias to get the death penalty are senior citizens but I can see how the four seniors who live normal lives can see their daughter or granddaughter when they see Jodi Arias- not an evil sociopath- and think she killed Travis because he was mean to her and will never be violent again. We know Jodi Arias always had a violent tendency and would kill again in a heartbeat. Did they not hear her say she bought a 9 mm to to camping with six guys AFTer she slaughtered Travis? That gave me chills and a reason for the death penalty. If I were on the jury, I would know that the reason her family did not beg for her life was that they know she is evil and what she is capable of because they have witnessed her violent behavior.

    • Posted by Ria on May 30, 2013 at 3:43 am

      It seemed that Mr. Zervakos felt Stabby was pushed to this extreme point by Travis, that she’d been normal her whole life until he came into it. Those of us on the outside knew that wasn’t the case. I think it may have made a difference if the video’s of her parents with Det. Flores had been brought it. Then his belief that Stabby was “just a normal girl” would’ve been shattered.

      I heard they are going to go ahead with the 2nd trial for sure, so the state is allowed to continue pursuing the DP. I just pray for a unanimous decision this time around!

      • Posted by Observer on May 30, 2013 at 5:41 am

        Ria, I doubt if the interrogations would have made a difference to the four jurors who voted against death. It didn’t make a difference to the eight jurors who voted for death. The majority of the public was overwhelmingly in favor of Jodi getting the death penalty way before watching the interrogation tapes of her parents.

        The four jurors had a hard time putting to death a 27 year old woman whose boyfriend called her bad names and had never committed another crime. It wouldn’t have mattered to them what her parents said. The evidence showed Jodi was jealous and possessive with all of her boyfriends so Travis calling her bad names hadn’t changed her. The difference was Travis rejected her and she had left the other boyfriends.

        The foreman also was like a defiant little child. He didn’t like Martinez telling him what to do and he wanted to protect the “poor girl who was a human being” from being “crucified” so he voted against Martinez thinking the judge would sentence her to life.

        • Posted by Ria on May 30, 2013 at 7:00 am

          That’s true Observer, the other jurors were able to get past it. I’d forgotten about that comment he made about Martinez and being spoken to “like a child”. I really hope this next jury gets it right!!!

          “The difference was Travis rejected her and she had left the other boyfriends.”
          And I wonder if her storyline that “she left them” was really the truth. Or did they ultimately get tired or turned off by her (like DB) and she knew it, and so moved on to the next guy to leech.

          • Posted by Ria on May 30, 2013 at 8:53 am

            I wonder if these guys she dated didn’t view her as being “the marrying type” ya know? Like she was too wild in the sack and too obsessed with her looks, maybe they didn’t feel they could trust her.

            • Posted by de-Edifying watcher on May 30, 2013 at 9:22 am

              I agree.
              Her whole (pun intended) sexual MO was to be a side *piece.*
              Doubtful she is even capable of *loving* a human…it was all about what any guy *had* for her to glom onto.
              People are “useful” to her. That is, until they no longer want to used, and then the sociaopath rears her ugly self.
              She even admitted to Flores that other guys had called her worst names than Travis did. Travis’s possible fatal mistake was to call her bluff or even threaten to expose “her.”

            • Posted by PFENIX on May 30, 2013 at 1:54 pm

              She wanted to marry Daryl Brewer didn’t she and he wasn’t in for it? Of course he didn’t mind having a desperate piece of young ass around till she fell for Travis and wanted to trade wayyyyy up.

  112. Posted by Observer on May 30, 2013 at 8:17 am

    What I am afraid of is that the defense is listening to the jurors and telling Jodi that at least one alternate said she may have voted against the death penalty if Jodi had apologized to the family and if her mother had begged for her life. Jodi and her mother may play to the next jury.

    I think it is crazy for anyone to believe that if a cold blooded murderer apologizes for murdering a human being that they shouldn’t be put to death because they are sorry now. An apology for a heinous crime means nothing to me because 1- Murderers think nothing of killing someone else but when it comes to saving their own skin, they will say anything to get out of being put to death and 2 – Even if they are sorry, it isn’t going to change the fact that they planned and carried out a vicious cruel murder to make the victim suffer.

    Any mother will beg for their child’s life even if she is a cold blooded killer. That makes no diffence to me.

    As a teacher/principal, mother, and grandmother, I have seen many angel faced little children misbehave and when caught say they are sorry to get out of punishment and then go right out and do it again. Jodi Arias is dangerous because she comes across as a soft spoken harmless sex kitten and no one would imagine she would be capable of violence.

    Even if she does apologize to the Alexanders and her mother begs for her life, Jodi Arias is not capable of remorse because she is a sociopath and has no conscience and would murder again if she perceives someone as rejecting, abandoning or betraying her. Violence escalates and she would only be more violent the next time she goes into a murderous rage if she perceives someone as betraying her.

    • Posted by de-Edifying watcher on May 30, 2013 at 8:30 am

      “Arias is not capable of remorse because she is a sociopath and has no conscience and would murder again if she perceives someone as rejecting, abandoning or betraying her”

      And she basically SAID THAT in one of her latest media interviews.
      When asked if she was dangerous as people perceive her to be, she answered to the effect that “no she wasn’t as long as people didn’t abuse her.” What more does anyone need to hear out of her sociopathic mouth than that??

    • Posted by Ria on May 30, 2013 at 8:56 am

      I agree Observer, even if she did apologize, at this point she’s already shown she’s not capable of remorse and her demeanor speaks volumes to that, regardless of how much she apologizes. That, along with the premeditation and brutality of the murder…scary combination!

    • Posted by Faihful on May 30, 2013 at 9:41 pm

      This sex kitten has ugly claws. To defend her life from DP she will attack anyway she can. She and her Atty’s are the real monsters. I want to see put away for life Ina cell all by herself.

    • Do u think JA is capable of apologizing? I don’t think dhe can get it out. Remember when the reporter asked her about it and she said, ” I did” then basically got mad because the reporter wanted the actual words! The nerve of the public…wanting to hear the words ‘I’m sorry’.

    Supreme court shoots down first of many appeals from Jodi Arias defense:

    PHOENIX – The Arizona Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal on whether a judge improperly allowed prosecutors to seek a death sentence for Jodi Arias in the 2008 stabbing and shooting of her former boyfriend.

    Arias’ lawyers filed the mid-trial appeal with the state high court three months ago after Judge Sherry Stephens denied a mistrial motion and a mid-level state court then refused to consider an appeal.

    Arias lawyers say Stephens wrongly allowed a potential death sentence to be based on trial testimony that contradicted a police detective’s testimony during a 2009 hearing about how Travis Alexander was killed.

    hi Queen EGGO and all cheeps and peeps.
    Sorry I did not add anything to our great blog for a while,but after the verdict I was so completely destroyed I just couldn’t read or speak about that DEVIL!!!!!!. I am so happy to read all your comments and see that all of you are here. Looking through Youtube I see the Devil is still sending out twitters. I thought this site of hers was to be shut down. Now as far as the DP I really want to see her get LWOP for the simple fact she will be shut up in solitary for a very long. We have all seen the video posted above. As far as I am concerned this will be the worse punishment for her. The DP for her is the easy way out. She will not be made to suffer as she should. My heart goes out to the family I wish them all to find peace soon.Hugs to you all.

    • Posted by Observer on May 30, 2013 at 10:03 am

      Jodi Aris will suffer worse on death row because she will be in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day until all her appeals are exhausted, which will be 12 to 20 years. If she gets LWOP she will be in solitary confinement for only two or three years and then she will live among the general population where she will have privileges and manipulate other inmates and guards and can speak to the media via telephone. On death row, she will get none of these privileges.

    • Posted by Sharon Henson on May 30, 2013 at 1:38 pm

      If she gets DP, she gets an automatic appeal. If LWOP she does not.

    Arizona has not executed a woman since 1930, when former cabaret dancer Eva Dugan was hanged for killing and burying the rancher for whom she worked as a housekeeper.

    “I don’t know where I’m headin’ for, but here I come. Let ’er go, boys,” Dugan said while standing at the gallows.

    When the trap door beneath her feet sprung, Dugan’s body dropped and the noose around her neck snapped taunt. The executioner had miscalculated the drop, and the force of it decapitated Dugan’s head, which rolled into the audience of spectators, causing several people to faint.

    Dugan’s grisly execution prompted the state to replace the gallows with the gas chamber.

    Three woman now reside on Arizona’s death row.

    • Posted by Observer on May 30, 2013 at 10:37 am

      Correction: two women now reside on Arizona’s death row. The death saentence of the third inmate was overturned and she has been given a new trial.

      If the new jury sentences her to death, Arias will join on death row Wendi Andriano, 43, who murdered her husband, and Shawna Forde, 46, who was convicted of killing a man and his daughter in an act of vigilante crime with a group of protesters angry over immigration.

      In 2009, Forde and other members of the vigilante group Minute Men, angry over immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border, entered the home of Raul Flores, Jr., and Forde shot and killed him and his daughter. Flores’ wife survived the shooting and told officials that Forde was the shooter.

      Andriano bludgeoned her terminally-ill husband to death in October 2000. After Joseph Andriano, 33, was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Wendi Andriano attempted to poison him. Eventually, she resorted to stabbing him and hitting him with a bar stool until he died.

      • Posted by Ria on May 30, 2013 at 10:57 am

        UGH, as much as I dislike Stabby I really would not want to have her head come rolling toward me…that’s gruesome! I wonder if it was open to the public, as in anyone could witness it, or whether only certain people were allowed.

      • Posted by PFENIX on May 30, 2013 at 1:28 pm

        Juan Martinez is responsible for Wendi Andriano, would like to see him add Arias to the list.

    • I’d go to a hangin’ of JA! I’d even take video for y’all. I could swear that hanging was still on our law books, though…I thought they just quit using it after the decapitated dancer. I think AZ and TX both have hanging on the books. I am going to check that out! 😊

  117. And while we wait, a little something to digest…

    After reading the article by Wendy Murphy in it’s entirety, I am not feeling very confident that a DP verdict will hold out after all is said and done…another penalty phase trial.
    In Stabby’s case, Nurmi and Willmott didn’t put any mitigating witnesses on the stand during the mitigating phase on purpose, to manipulate the law post verdict.

    The following excert is from the Wendy Murphy info if any of you didn’t get an opportunity to read it, be sure to scroll down to the end. THIS part is what flabbered my guster! Wow…just wow…

    http://wendymurphylaw.com/jodi-hannibal-lecter-arias/

    In part…

    “By refusing to put Arias* friends and family on the stand, defense attorneys knew they might lose the battle but would likely win the war if the jury voted for death. The Ninth Circuit*s predisposition to reverse death penalty verdicts when mitigation witnesses are not called was a near guarantee that Arias would never be put to death. This remains a viable strategic option given that a new jury will be impaneled to decide the death penalty issue in July, which means we can expect Arias* family members again to sit silent instead of begging for Jodi*s life. Perhaps the prosecutor should consider calling Jodi*s mother to the stand, if only to expose the strategy and create a record that would at least make it more difficult for the Ninth Circuit to indulge the nonsense.

    Refusing to call mitigation witnesses may eventually save Jodi Arias* life, but the author of the article below notes that it isn*t ethical. The recent evolution of this ugly strategy has inspired legal scholars to urge that such lawyers be reported to the bar and sanctioned for the unethical practice of law, though since defense attorneys control most licensing boards, don*t hold your breath. Chances are much better lawyers who pull this stunt will win awards because in the American legal system, a lack of ethics in criminal defense work isn*t punished so long as the ends justify the means. Which begs an important question for the rest of us: Is saving one psychopath*s life really worth the loss of integrity for an entire legal system, and who do we hold accountable if the answer is *no?'”

    • Posted by Ria on May 30, 2013 at 11:39 am

      It would be awesome if Juan could bring in Darrell Brewer’s interview saying he has no idea why he wasn’t called and then bring up to the jury the reason why the defense didn’t want to…even if he gets an objection.

      I really feel that disgusting Jose Baez paved the way for defense attorney’s to feel they can go balls out and say whatever they want, then justify it with “Someone’s life is on the line here, they have a right to be defended every way possible”. Lies and defending someone’s life are two different things!

      Kind of off topic from your post Red but does anyone recall Robert Chambers and the Preppy Murder in the 80’s? The defense bashed the murdered girl’s character so badly that I thought a law passed to prevent it from happening.

      • Ria. I thought that too, but I’m hoping that all the media she and Brewer and Donoman, and everyone else has done has hurt her chances for appeal. Also she was the one who asked for the delays and demanded Nurmi stay on her case, that should do away with any ineffective counsel or denied speedy trial appeals, right?

    • I was wondering if Jodi’s Attorneys spoke to her about Perryville prison, that’s what the Warden suggested so it will not be a surprise.

    • Posted by Sully on May 30, 2013 at 11:54 am

      A definite balloon burster.

    • Posted by Observer on May 30, 2013 at 12:03 pm

      I’m sure Nurmi, Wilmott and Jodi were all upset when the jury did not give her death or life because the last thing Nurmi and Wilmott wanted to do was spend one more day with the spoiled brat and Jodi was anxious to get new attorneys and file appeals for ineffective counsel and prosecution misconduct because she wants a new trial on the guilt phase and aggravator as well as sentencing.

      This did throw a monkey wrench in their plan to appeal to the supreme court and get a new trial because in their thinking the judge refused to call a mistrial and allowed Martinez to intimidate their witnesses and made it impossible for Jodi to get a fair trial.

      This mitigation phase will be different because there will be a new jury so both the defense and prosecution will have to put on a mini trial to catch the new jurors up. The prosecution and defense will have to both call some of the same witnesses as they did in the first trial. I think Jodi will see this as a chance to manipulate new jurors into believing her BS about defending her poor widdle self from the mean wrestler linebacker sexual deviant batterer who made her feel like a prostitute and broke her finger while kicking her in the ribs.

      She will be in her glory playing victim AGAIN although Nurmi won’t be able to drag it out for five months and keep Jodi on the stand 18 days because the judge will order an abreviated trial since she is a convicted first degree murderer. I bet we will see Gus Searcy, Daryl, the brother and sister,Lisa and perhaps LaViolette and Samuels to make it look like Travis was a mean old womanizer and abuser. The text messages in which Travis called her “mean” names and LaViolette’s testimony influenced the foreman to hang the jury.

      • Posted by Sully on May 30, 2013 at 1:20 pm

        A shorter mini-trial – from your mouth to the judge’s ear!
        I sincerely hope they do not trot out ALV and DS again. TV will be muted on those days!

    • Posted by PFENIX on May 30, 2013 at 1:38 pm

      The Defense Dumbo Duo threw a temper tantrum because Juan had the goods on their worthless mitigating witnesses. Please, that friend of Jodi’s was giving Juan the middle finger during court when she went to visit and it’s on tape. Nothing from the family…that is not Meany Martinez’s fault. Oh, yeah and where were they for the last sentence? Vacationing at the Grand Canyon courtesy of the idiots who donated to This Demon is so not guilty, no lie.com

      Ogre and Wanna-be then tried to use borderline personality so I don’t see how they would bring back Samdamuals and La Butch Toilette. Juan would just tear them a third arse hole. As Martinez has said in previous cases to defense…QUIT WHINING!!!!

    • Red – Saving a psychopaths life has no redeeming value for humanity – once they have killed and gained a reprieve they are likely to kill again – IMO – therefore the defense lawyers who will malign the reputation of the victim and propagate any number of lies and falsehoods just to get their client a lesser sentence are as guilty of the crime as their client – they should be severely fined and punished for such underhanded practices as they undermine the justice system they should be serving.
      Perhaps their licenses could be revoked when such “f–kery is afoot”

      • @Peony2 – Couldn’t agree more…what you’re offering up is how is SHOULD work however it appears we are becoming saddled with a flawed legal system that has evolved to the point where the victims are put on trial rather than the perps.

        Validating your statements also that defendants and their attorney’s have seemingly acquired “free rein” to destroy reputations in excess of the crimes against the innocents, their victims. In effect, the legal system is becoming more and more corrupt and I honestly don’t believe that it was originally devised to operate THIS way.

        Justice Warren E. Burger ~
        “… ours is a sick profession marked by incompetence, lack of training, misconduct and bad manners. Ineptness, bungling, malpractice, and bad ethics can be observed in court houses all over this country every day … these incompetents have a seeming unawareness of the fundamental ethics of the profession. … the harsh truth is that … we may well be on our way to a society, overrun by hordes of lawyers, hungry as locusts, and brigades of judges in numbers never before contemplated.”

        • Red – frightening thought put forth by Justice Warren E. Burger – when the law makers become corrupt there is no governing factor for society and all are at risk. When the legal system polices itself without exterior arbitrators it seems the ethics of the profession which are presumably to gain justice are put aside in the rape and pillage of the public purse on the behalf of indigent perpetrators.
          Truly an inequitable place for the victims and their family to find themselves in through no fault of their own – that the justice system has degraded itself to this position is appalling and does not bode well for the future of society.
          It seems that too many exceptions have been given to what, to me, should be a simple case of sentence of the death penalty –

          A life was taken in a premeditated, vicious and brutal fashion – the taker of that life should automatically be sentenced to death – the killer took it upon themselves to act as judge, jury and God over another individual – the killer chose to take a life and
          There are no excuses for such an action – particularly in this case –

          • Posted by Faihful on June 4, 2013 at 8:55 pm

            Dear Peony2
            I agree with you100% .The Demon admitted the killing,She should have had a very short trial with sentencing only. One other thing to note,if she gets DP she can appeal but it will be the people of AZ to foot the bill again for her appeal.If she gets LWop then she must pay for her own appeals. As I said I agree with you if this just went to sentencing we all would have been speared listening to the garbage put out by her DVT and it would not cost the taxpayers over a million dollars to defend a piece of garbage like her. Another thing I read somewhere the Demon sent a hand written letter requesting Nurmi NOT TO be allowed from leaving the case. From the very beginning of this case he has been asking to removed from being her atty. and asking for a mistrial.

            • Seems to me Faithful that there have just been too many allowances made for vicious murderers. Yes there are obviously people who commit terrible crimes who are just insane (like the Batman movie shooter guy)and there are people who drunk drive and kill someone – and there are different charges for each – But in a case where there is no doubt – where there is fingerprint and photographic evidence I don’t see the necessity for the costly delay – the Punishment should be an automatic thing – and immediately applied IMO – In this case the Demon confessed – her fingerprints were in the blood – the camera time stamped the time sequence of events and she killed Travis 3 times over – so it was not a mistake – nor was it an accident – nor was it a sudden lashing out where one swipe of the knife would have indicated she was enraged by him over something – This was a methodical – intentional and pre-meditated murder –
              Executing such a diabolic individual as soon as possible prevents her from carrying out further crimes against society – and until such time as she is executed keeping her in solitary confinement keeps her from spreading her evil ways to other inmates –

              I have no pity for such a sub-human – I see no point in coddling such an obvious drain on society – there are much better ways to spend taxpayers dollars than on such bottom feeders IMO. Yes I know there are liberal arguments to give indigent people a “fair trial” but what really is fair? Does that mean defense lawyers have a open ended wallet and can spend as much as they wish on totally made up agendas? Seems to me there should be a balance on what is equitable for both the prosecution and the defense –

              In this case a totally useless piece of trash chose to take the life of someone who was an asset to society – what justifies that? What gave her the right to be judge and jury over his life? Nothing!!!

              • Posted by Faihful on June 5, 2013 at 12:44 am

                Dear peony2
                As I said before I did agree with you. Maybe you misunderstood and thought I was taking the side of the Demon. All that I was trying to bring out was that she did admit to the killing of Travis and all evidence proved that. So this trial which cost the taxpayers over one million dollars and took 5 months was entirely wasteful IMO .She was guilty from the beginning.Another point I was trying to say was the cost of all her appeals if she was sentence to death the burden will again be put on the taxpayers of AZ. Yes I believe she deserves the death penalty but I am also trying to look at a another view
                As I said if LWOP she is kept by herself for 2-5years. This will really drive her crazy before she even gets into jail population. Once there do you really think anyone cares who she is? She will be their new toy. Peony this is not an argument between us. I read all the blogs and respect all the bloggers here. I hope I cleared my thoughts a little better,if not sorry. Maybe I don,t express myself to we’ll.

                • Not to worry Faihful – I did not misunderstand you – and I do agree that from a strictly financial outlook on this particular trial perhaps LWOP would be sufficient to remove this carbuncle on the butt of society from public scrutiny and interest.
                  She will wither in a solitary environment and the sooner she gets into prison the better – I have the greatest respect for Juan Martinez and Esteban Flores – both men have earned my respect and admiration. I have absolutely no respect for the defense team and their witnesses. But I am quite happy to accept whatever decision the Alexander family and the prosecutor’s office decide on – I have no dog in this fight – my interest is in justice being done.
                  I do tend to get worked up about the general malaise in the judicial system these days – I grind my teeth over Oscar Pistorius being given free rein to travel and enjoy life in any way he chooses after being charged by the SA prosecutor with shooting his girlfriend in a locked bathroom 4 times – Ah yes he claims he thought it was an intruder – but that’s another case that I find distressing – Or how about Joran van der Sloot who now is preparing to marry so he will not be extradited to the US to face charges and the list goes on – Casey Anthony was yet another frustration –

                  I guess my ideal would be that if enough people took enough interest in changing the laws for the betterment of everyone it could be done and I suppose that is what I give voice to –
                  Don’t take anything I say too much to heart – I wish I had the gift of humor that Eggy does – I came here because I was captured by her brilliant wit and still go back and re-read her blogs for a laugh – but am saddened in my soul when I think of how long the Alexander siblings have suffered and just how hard it is to loose a family member at any time but most particularly when they are so young and vibrant.

                  So on a lighter note and to get away from this I check out Eddie Izzard Utubes, or Jeff Dunham and Walter or Ricky Gervais or John Cleese – nothing like comedy to lighten the mood.
                  Thanks for your good thoughts –

                    thank for your response. I to think of all the family has gone through and will go through for a while longer because of the way the court system is now. Juan is great is great and seems commited to the family and to justice. but alas it also seems the DF Atty. calls the shots. let’s hope and pray that soon everything will come to a good end for the family and justice for Travis. your response was very gracious thanks again for taking the time to answer.

    Oh Egg where have you gone? My days aren’t the same without you.

    • I had some grammatical errors in my Iast post. JODI read the book of John in the New Testament get the NIV version. We know who are children of God by the fruits of the spirit. Christianity is having a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus.

    PHOENIX – The top prosecutor in Phoenix said Thursday that he is confident an impartial jury can be seated to determine the punishment for Jodi Arias, and he is open to input from defense lawyers and the family of the victim about possibly scraping a new trial in favor of a life sentence for the convicted murderer.

    Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery discussed the next steps for the Arias case at a news conference Thursday. A jury convicted her of murder earlier this month but was unable to reach a verdict on whether she should be sentenced to life in prison or the death penalty for the killing of her lover Travis Alexander five years ago.

    The deadlock means that Montgomery’s office will have to put on a new trial to determine her punishment. But it’s also possible that lawyers agree to end the case without a trial and give Arias a life sentence with no parole.

    Several factors are being weighed by Montgomery’s office ahead of a court hearing scheduled for June 20, including feedback from Alexander’s family. He declined to say whether defense lawyers had come forward with an offer to take the death penalty off the table, but added that he has “an ethical obligation” to consider such a deal.

    “That’s really the strongest statement or commitment I can make to look at resolving” the case, he said.

    Montgomery said the Alexander family’s response will be important, noting that the Arizona Constitution has a victim’s bill of rights that allows the Alexander family to confer with the prosecutors before the case is resolved. The Alexander family said it would not comment on the case until it is resolved.

    “And so input from victims, not just on this case, but on any other case, does carry weight,” he said. “It’s one of many factors that are considered.”

    The original trial lasted nearly five months and became a media sensation with its explicit sex and violence. Montgomery was asked if a new trial might be moved to a different county because the case has received so much attention and generated emotionally charged responses from the public about Arias and her punishment. Montgomery believes a jury could in fact be seated in Phoenix.

    “We are a county of 4 million total people, and over a million registered voters can find their way onto a jury pool,” he said. “We have had other very high-profile matters that we have tried in the county in which a change of venue motion had been filed and was denied. Certainly the degree to which this trial has been covered is very different relative to the others. But I don’t want to presume that we wouldn’t be able to seat a jury.”

    When asked how his office would overcome the media saturation if it proceeds to trial, he joked to the room full of reporters: “By asking the media to stop.”

      LOL! I liked his last statement.

      And so, my friends, this matter could end, not with a bang, but a whimper. At the end of the day, it might be for the best. But, we’ll see what the Alexanders want…

      • Posted by Observer on May 30, 2013 at 1:39 pm

        I predict there will be a retrial of the mitigation phase. The Alexanders have already stated that they want the prosecutor to pursue the death penalty. The Alexanders don’t want Jodi to ever get out of prison. I doubt if Jodi would take a plea to spend the rest of her life in prison. She is counting on her appeals to overturn the sentence and believes she will walk in a few years.

  121. I have been worrying about something, and maybe a Mormon out there can give me the facts. I heard someone say on Dr. Drew a while back that the Mormon faith believes that if you commit a sin such as extramarital sex and die without getting forgiveness–you go to Hell. I wondered if that’s why Jodi was so intent on having all kinds of sex with Travis on that awful day, and then immediately killing him. She not only wanted him to suffer in this life, but wanted to sentence him to Hell in the next. For this alone she deserves the DP.

    • Posted by Observer on May 30, 2013 at 4:10 pm

      Don’t worry. Travis is in heaven. His good deeds on earth will outweigh his minor sin of premarital sex. Jodi will go to hell because she committed the worst sin of all: murder.

      • Posted by PFENIX on May 30, 2013 at 8:32 pm

        Murder without remorse for the selfish reason of jealousy, rage, and ego.

    • Posted by RD on May 30, 2013 at 4:23 pm

      There is the opportunity beyond the vail after physical death for rempdtion & levels of glory to attain. I am not sure if Travis did any of his temple ordinances, in other words, if he was temple worthy to particiapte in temple work such baptisims, that sort of thing. I am not aware if he ever completed a 2 year mission for the church or not; if he did he would have his temple recommend & personal endowments (spiritual ordinance). A mission is not required however, I am just curious if he did or not. we believe in Jesus Christ, follow His teachings, and repent when we commit sins, His Atonement, or sacrifice, can wash us clean of our sins and make us worthy to return to God’s presence. Christ’s sacrifice and Resurrection also allow us to overcome physical death. Every one of us will be resurrected just like Christ was and live forever in perfected bodies after we leave this life. Having said that we can’t forget who our final judge will be and I think there will be more mercy than we might expect, I am speaking about all of us. Travis will have that opportunity to be forgiven. We do not know what is in his heart but I have said before I beleive him to be a good person. Travis Alexander will not be going to hell. I cannot say the same the same thing about the demon, her fate awaits.
      I am a 26 year memeber of the chruch, temple recommend holder, I have a temple marriage, and sealed to my family for eternity. We beleive that marriage is for eternity and not just life do us part & that families are truely eternal units for eternity. Kind of a nice thought. Travis will be with his family also.

      • Some one from the Mormon faith, what does the Lord think of the Death Penalty? I am confused with this.

        • Posted by RD on May 30, 2013 at 4:43 pm

          Freedomisne: As memebers of the Church of Jesus Christ of LAtter Day Saints we are subject to the law of the land; our country’s rules, regulations, leadership, law enforcement. etc. as any other citizen would be. Although NOT an official church stance or policy, it has been my expereince that some members support the death penalty, some do not. Some are democrats, some are republicans as an example. It is not so dogmatic as many would believe it to be as an organization. I am a member but I find myself questioning the death penalty as applied in some cases or trials. I think you would find members struggle with the same social, political, issue of our times like anyone else.
          I hope this helps a little.

        • Posted by RD on May 30, 2013 at 4:48 pm

          Freedomisme: Tough question what the Lord would think of the death penalty but in scripture you will find the Lord has exhibited grace, mercy, and an eye for an eye. Remember this is the same person who in the old testament flooded the world to get rid of all the wickedness in the world. I can however understand your confussion how a merciful God could also exact vengence on mankind. duality.

      • Posted by RD on May 30, 2013 at 4:35 pm

        One more thing, I bet if I were to look and check it out a member or Travis’ family or other member have already made sure his temple work was indeed completed by proxy. . Our savior knows him better than anyone of us could and I would also bet it was a profound meeting and loving embrace when Travis stood before Christ.
        Some of what I am talking about I am trying to phrase in such a manner that people not familiar with LDS teaching can better understand what we call the plan of salvation.
        My heart aches for this family regardless of my beliefs however.

      • Thank you soooo much for this RD, it brought tears to my eyes.

      • Posted by Observer on May 30, 2013 at 7:33 pm

        Travis completed a two year mission in Colorado. He had a temple recommend according to his ex girlfriend Deanna Reid.

        • Posted by RD on May 30, 2013 at 7:47 pm

          Travis serving a mission tells me that indeed his heart was in the right place & one simply does not turn it off. The character assassination of Travis attempted in the trial failed miserably. What it did do was expose the defendant & her defense duo for the morally bankrupt individuals they truly proved them selves to be time & again, but, we know all this.

          • Posted by Observer on May 30, 2013 at 8:04 pm

            Jodi made up the pedophile and abuse excuse because she wanted to blackmail the Alexander family and state in letting her plead guilty to second degree murder and get a light sentence from 8 to 12 years. She didn’t want a trial because she didn’t want anyone to know she was capable of stabbing Travis 29 times, slitting his throat and shooting him in the head. She planned on telling the media she was innocent but she plead guilty to save Travis’s reputation. She has to paint herself as the heroine and Travis as the villain.

            • Posted by Observer on May 30, 2013 at 8:05 pm

              Martinez doesn’t take pleas and he and the Alexander family want her to get the death penalty or see that she never gets out of prison to do this to someone else.

            • Posted by Maureen on May 30, 2013 at 9:18 pm

              Totally agree observer. I bascially take anything the killer says and find the opposite meaning. She said she wanted to save Travis rep (well actualy she said did not want to ..gag…”de-edify” him. In reality she did not want people to know what she did. Time and time again what she says about Travis, or anything for that matter, the truth is the opposite of what she says.

      • Posted by Kristen Shumway on May 30, 2013 at 8:07 pm

        RD, and others. I have important answers to a couple of your questions. (Just to establish my credibility, I have been an active Mormon for 63 years, and Travis was a friend of my daughter. He lived in our ward boundaries and he and my daughter attended the same singles ward. The parents of Mimi Hall, who he planned to take to Cancun, are good friends of mine. Her step-father was our bishop at one time.)

        Travis did serve an LDS mission. I believe it was to Denver, but I’m not sure. He often attended the Temple, which my daughter has personally witnessed. However, after he became involved with the demon, he knew he could not attend until he repented, and Mimi’s mother told me that Mimi was aware of this. He had confessed to his bishop and was working with him to change his life and have his temple recommend restored. A big part of that was convincing the demon to leave! When she was arrested, without divulging any confidential information, his bishop warned the members of the ward that she would try to destroy Travis reputation. Demon, of course, did just that and lied under oath when she told them that Travis said not to confess to their bishops. We believe that if we have faith in Christ, and do what we can to repent, Jesus covers our sins by his atonement.

        Next question-capital punishment. The official doctrine of the Church is pro-death penalty for murderers. The Bible dictates it in many places, here are couple to start with :Genesis 9:6, Exodus 21:12. Then in the Book of Mormon it says, “Wo unto the murderer who deliberately killeth, for he shall die.” ( 2 Nephi 9:35), and Alma 34:12 says, “…the law requireth the life of him who hath murdered…”. In the Doctrine and Covenants which contains instructions from the Lord in our day, it says: “And now, behold, I speak unto the Church. Thou shalt not kill, and he that kills shall not have forgiveness in this world, nor in the world to come. And again, I say, thou shalt not kill; but he that killeth shall die.” (D&C 42:18-19) It has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with the fact that God is the giver of life, and he only gives us limited power over it. We are not to create life except within the bounds he sets, i.e., in a legal marriage. And we are not to destroy life unless it is to return a murderer to let God handle the justice.

        • Posted by Observer on May 30, 2013 at 10:11 pm

          Thanks for sharing that your daughter knew Travis and you know Mimi Hall’s parent. I am sure you share their pain in the loss of such a wonderful human being who unfortunately got involved in a fatal attraction. I live in Mesa but didn’t know them. Yet, I feel I know them after seeing Mimi testify and Travis’s friends share stories, pictures and videos. Travis seems like a loving, caring man and he could have done great things had he not gotten involved with the wrong woman who created a nightmare for him, his family and friends by slashing his throat from ear to ear.

          It was a shame that the jury didn’t get to know the real Travis and had to listen to the demon destroy his reputation. Despite that, the jury was able to see through Jodi’s myriad of lies and find her guilty of first degree murder and that the murder was extremely cruel. Unfortunately, four jurors bought part of her lies. Hopefully, the next jury will give her the death penalty and his family can grieve and move on and not have to listen to more hateful lies.

          Thanks for sharing, Kristen. I am so glad the bishop knew the truth and warned the congregation. The story presented in court was so one-sided, but I ‘m glad the truth is getting out.

        • Posted by RD on May 31, 2013 at 8:17 am

          Kristen, most excellent post & clarification for all us bloggers! I did not have time to research and offer up scripture / doctrine reference, I was rapidly blogging from a mobile device!. Thank you again, your comments just reaffirm what we all know to be true; Travis was a good person & a fine young man with a future & so much promise. It also illustrates just how vigliant we must all be no matter what our faith or beliefs.

        • Posted by Ria on May 31, 2013 at 8:30 am

          Thank you for posting this Kristen. I did her the Demon mumble something about Travis working with the bishop during her interrogation but it’s nice to have it confirmed.

        • Thank you for sharing this Kristen – It just re-affirms the feelings I’ve had in my heart about Travis. Though I knew him not, his goodness shines through his words in his blogs. It’s good to know also from someone in the church what the attitudes are about capital punishment and I am glad they re-affirm my own.
          For a very short time in his life Travis was being tempted by the Devil. It’s good to know he was resisting and repenting. I feel he is now at peace resting in the arms of his Lord.

      • I do not know Travis, only what we are hearing about him through his friends, family.and I believe he’s with the Lord.

  122. Thanks–I don’t know a great deal about the tenets of the Mormon faith—what I do know is that Mormons are probably some of the best people I have met along the way. I do believe in a loving God, so your answer resonated with me. I do pray for the Alexanders and for justice to be done.

      *I’m listening to Dr. Jean DeSmarte’s testimony!*

  124. Jodi Aries committed many sins, jealousy, murder etc. I am starting to realize it all now. I would not want to be her standing before the Lord. TRAVIS is still here in spirit, and guess what Jodi, continuing to deny and lie will not help you. Truth prevails.

  125. Posted by GBPL on May 30, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    Ok… I must say.. watching this Youtube with the brilliance of Dr. DeMarte’s testimony,..
    and watching Velma’s head snap up just before she objects…THEN when she starts
    to write something,..she holds her pen, and writes, JUST like Jimmy Fallon does when he writes his “Thank-you” notes!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

  126. After Jodi murderer Travis then went to Ryan Burns, the Lord was protecting him.

    • Posted by PFENIX on May 30, 2013 at 9:20 pm

      He gained a LOT of weight after the murder, wondering if that had anything to do with it. He was really handsome and muscular back in 2008.

    • Posted by GBPL on May 30, 2013 at 10:05 pm

      He was protecting Ryan, but not Travis?

      I’ve been biting my tongue, but now I have to point out that “Time and unforseen occurances befall us all” Ecc 9:11
      Bad things happen because Satan and his demon’s are restricted to the earth, and soon that will be rectified.

      I’ll not go on to a lengthy post, as I feel personally this isn’t the forum for debating

    Lets see where did it start…Oh..where someone posted a spot where Flores held her hand.. well touched it more or less… BUT.. I knew that was very close to the one where she said…”Well I was not jealous..but a little envious that he was going to Cancun, but thats not the reason… I mean its not expensive to go to Mexico..i can go anytime… Ummmmm”
    We’ve talked about that wayyyy up there^^^^ BUT… This was in a different youtube of David Lohrs…and someone put the best comment on there. Because Flores phone keeps vibrating almost the entire interrogation….

    “korovyovbehemoth 4 days ago
    I like to believe that his constantly buzzing phone is texts from officers watching the interview in another room with stuff like “OMG NO SHE DIDN’T” or “LOLLLLLLL SUX 2BU”

    By the way, a good Dr. Drew episode last night on stalking, in which Stabby was cited as a classic stalker. Also, there’s a podcast with Mark Eiglarsh on DD’s website discussing the trial – created to allow more time than the snippets provided on on the show.

      • Posted by Sully on May 31, 2013 at 7:22 am

        And one last tin-foil-hat comment. A caller on the show wondered if Stabby meeting Travis was premeditated. Knowing about PPL and looking it up on the Internet, stumbling across his name and probably photo, developed an interest, researched him then “accidentally” meeting him at the PPL conference. Which the psych doctor said is consistent with a stalker who is also a psychopath!
        Yikes!! (okay, conspiracy theory, but double yikes!!)

              Interesting, so it was someone Stabby was already friends with? She makes it sound like Travis is the one who brought her into this whole world but obviously it was someone else or she wouldn’t have been at the PPL convention in the first place. I’d love to know more details on this!

  130. Posted by jenniferlyn on May 31, 2013 at 11:56 am

    Stabby’s parents should have capped her “claws” as a child…they even come come in sparkly pink. There’s a color and size to fit any young feline showing latent homicidal tendencies:

  131. Posted by Observer on May 31, 2013 at 12:05 pm

    An idiot Jodi supporter called into Dr. Drew’s show and said she thought Jodi should get a new trial because the jurors are all over Twitter saying they made up their minds after the opening statements. That has to be a lie made up by the Jodi is Innocent site. I’ve never seen any tweets by jurors. All jurors and alternates asked 250 questions of Jodi Arias and almost as many of Samuels and La Violette and four jurors spoke to the media and there was every indication that they all weighed all the evidence and didn’t believe the self defense, fog, PTSD, Travis was a sexual deviant and “broke my finger” nonsense. An alternate Tara Kelly has been tweeting and like the 12 jurors and public she saw through all of Jodi’s lies and she said she would have found her guilty of first degree murder and given her the death penalty. But she didn’t vote so it makes no difference when she made up her mind. The Jodi supporters just can’t face the truth: that the state proved its case of premeditated and felony murder with tons of evidence.

  132. This has been bothering me for a long time: What proof is there that Travis “invited” Jodi over to his home that night? All we DO know from the evidence was that it let itself in using the garage door code and allegedly found him in his office, at which door it stood “for about 30 seconds”, silently watching him “on his computer” until Napoleon the dog made its presence known. This all ITS version. And something else, in none of the photos (during and after sex) do any of the parties involved look happy or romantic or sexy. Especially Travis’ shower photos. He has a strange look in his eyes. Haven’t been able to figure that one out either. Seems to me, there’s another entirely different reality to that night. Any thoughts?

    • Posted by jenniferlyn on May 31, 2013 at 1:49 pm

      Only Stabby’s words, so no evidence that anyone can believe with any amount of certainty. Phone records only prove they talked for a while the day prior to her arrival in Mesa, obviously for more than just the time it takes to say “hello” and “goodbye”, but there’s only one person still alive that can tell us what was said, and I wouldn’t believe her if her tongue came notorized!! (and as my father likes to say “she’s so full of sh*t, I can smell her!”)

        Jen – absolutely LOVE your comment, “I wouldn’t believe her if her tongue came notorized!” !!!! GREAT line & if you don’t mind I’d like to incorporate it in describing my son-in-law! Too, too funny!

      Sadly, like someone else posted above, we will never, ever know what truly happened. The Demon will never reveal the truth…just like Travis’ brother Stephen said, he’ll never know what his big brother went through that night. We’re left to speculate about what led up to it.

      I don’t think she was invited, I think Travis was ready to hold strong about that. But I do think they had sex. I think she talked him into it by pointing out how it would make his time in Mexico so much better because he could woo Mimi without having sex on his mind. He could release it all with her.

    • Carole, I’ve wondered about that too – since we only have Demon’s word on it I can’t say I believe it – The sad look in Travis’s eyes in the shower make me wonder if he knew this was the end of this life. He did have a few defensive wounds but he could have overpowered her IMO but he did not. It seems he turned his back on her and she escalated the attack on his back and then his neck to finish him off. He had previously told his friends if he died who to look at and I wonder if it was not a premonition?
      Perhaps I am mistaken as it’s hard to defend yourself from someone who is wielding a knife and a gun especially after the first fatal blow to his heart.

    I can’t find the post to reply to it directly, but someone was asking about the shock belt Stabby wears in court. This video gives you all the details, with visuals to aid in your courtroom fantasies of Stabby attempting to flee, only to be tripped up by the leg brace she wears to prevent such foolishness- and still the Bailiff flips the switch on her shock belt so many times it appears she is portraying “frying bacon” in a game of charades… oh wait, that’s MY fantasy… get your OWN!! 😉

      LOL!! Get your own fantasy! Thats a pretty good one though Jenn!

      Interesting clip for sure. Interesting that she’s getting fan mail.. ughhhh I’m sure that even if 99.9% is hate mail..she would still percieve it as “fan mail”

    • Posted by Sully on May 31, 2013 at 3:14 pm

      Wow. That’s quite the imagination you have there, Jen! 🙂

    Do you think one of us should email Queen Eggo and ask if she can post something? I would do it but my non-assertive personality hates doing stuff like that:( I know she’s had some personal stuff she’s had to take care of so we need someone who’s totally okay with being a pest:)

    For those of you who like to listen to podcasts (I’m not sure if this is technically classified as a podcast) but Tricia’s True Crime Radio is broadcast every Sunday night live on the internet, but you can access the audio files later. The link below shows a list of archived shows and who the guests were. They range from 1 to 3 hours long.

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=454
    Scroll down to May 26th Dr. Lillian Glass for the most recent one.
    She has also interviewed Chris and Sky Hughes, Beth Karas, Wendy Murphy, etc.

    • Posted by GBPL on May 31, 2013 at 5:52 pm

      I think thats the same lady that Eggy posted somewhere..that was great!
      Thanks Sully! It will give me something to listen to while hubby is playing his guitar.

      I’m not doing so good with my case withdrawels am I?
      LOL Ria! Are you asking which one of us wants to volunteer as being the board pest!?!? hehehe!~

      • Posted by Ria on May 31, 2013 at 6:22 pm

        Those podcasts are awesome, she had one that’s all Chris Hughes and another that’s both Chris and Sky.

        Yes, that’s basically what I’m asking GB…I’m throwing you all under the bus:)

        • Posted by GBPL on May 31, 2013 at 6:29 pm

          “umm yeah Eggy, or Carol…umm yeah… Ria wants to know if you can start us a new thread to post on.. um yeah.. she’s really shy (as you can tell) so puurrrttty please for Ria??!?! ” 😉

          *something like that??

          • Posted by Jeanjeanne on May 31, 2013 at 6:57 pm

            I don’t know about you all, but I’m CRAVING eggs; fried, scrambled,poached, omelet, hard boiled, egg salad, fried egg sandwich, Egg McMuffin, frittata, quiche, deviled, and my favorite, eggs Benedict. And to all you regs ( GBPL, Ria, Sully, Red, Observer, Bea, Jen, Peony, Pfenix……) LOVE YOU ALL! I look so forward to getting home and reading all the witty, funny, insightful, intelligent and honest discussions that have evolved throughout the day! You are all awesome and I so appreciate this blog and all your posts!

            • Posted by Sully on May 31, 2013 at 7:47 pm

              Back atcha, Jean!
              I could go for some scrambled eggs, bacon and biscuits.
              (Still cheepin’)

            • Posted by GBPL on May 31, 2013 at 8:38 pm

              See what happens when your filling time waiting for a new post? We become regulars, or pests…however you want to look at it!

              I read and re-read the blogs and posts.. this morning I read about ” Dr. DeMarte must have lots of Highlighters” after listening to 2 days of her testimony on youtube, thats all i could hear!! “As I highlighted earlier… as I just highlighted!”
              totally didn’t catch that when she was testifying!

              Eggy is brilliant! 😛

              • Posted by Jeanjeanne on May 31, 2013 at 9:27 pm

                THANK YOU,SULLY! So kind of you. Oh my dear GBPL, nothing but admiration for you, really and truly. This comment was only to praise you and the other REG bloggers! So sad that, some how, you feel this is a diss. I’m stunned. I truly look forward to reading your posts each day. Why the attitude? I think you are funny and spot on, but I think I’m out, Thanks GBPL. Know when I’m not welcome,

                • Posted by Jeanjeanne on May 31, 2013 at 9:34 pm

                  Ria ,have admired you too! So very much! Why say that? Sad, I am. This is now a blog of FIVE. I’m sure it’s not what Eggy had in mind.

                  • Posted by Ria on June 1, 2013 at 9:11 am

                    It’s all in fun Jean, please don’t feel that anyone was being cruel!

                • Posted by Sully on May 31, 2013 at 10:20 pm

                  I don’t think she meant it as a diss. We’ve been kidding about being a pest to Eggy until she posts a new blog. Since Carol, our babysitter 🙂 is on haitus, Eggy has left the bar open for us to cheep!

                • Posted by GBPL on June 1, 2013 at 5:19 am

                  The” pest “part is in response to Ria’s comment!!….if you read the posts above or below you should see that!
                  Again misunderstanding! !!
                  I’m on my phone so its hard to keep it from jumping back up…really I wasn’t being snarky…just adding to the funnness of Ria’s post!!!

          • Posted by Sully on May 31, 2013 at 7:45 pm

            LOL!

          • Posted by Ria on May 31, 2013 at 7:48 pm

            What GB said:) And if it came across as too pushy, I had nothing to do with it.

      • Posted by Sully on May 31, 2013 at 7:53 pm

        No, GB, you’re not addicted. No how, no way. If you listen to a podcast with earbuds in while eating out at a restaurant with hubby, well, maybe it shows you still have a slight interest.

        • Posted by Ria on May 31, 2013 at 8:16 pm

          I think that’s acceptable if you only have one earbud in and leave the other ear free. That’s what I do and the hubs is fine with that. He’ll usually start telling me something in a really loud voice and I tell him “It’s okay, I can hear you, I only have one in!”.

        • Posted by GBPL on May 31, 2013 at 8:31 pm

          Oh my word!! Psychic Sully.. I did force myself to “unplug” from the podcasts you so kindly got me addicted to..lol! Its like crack..”the first one is free..then you’ll end up staying up all night, then finally falling asleep with earbuds in, and drool running down your face!”
          well i don’t know what crack is like..but you know what I mean!

          I’ve got Beth Karas on the podcast now…like Ria said..”faaaasinating!!!”

          tomorrow will be a test… its our anniversary, so i’ll have to show some restraint..but you know i’ll be checking to see if Eggy posted a new thread,..or Carol came back…or if Ria jumped back on the wagon….how Sully’s liver is doing… well you get the point!

          I just may have to employ the Ria earbud tactic! 😛

          • Posted by GBPL on May 31, 2013 at 8:42 pm

            oops..I meant..I unplugged long enough to have dinner with hubs!! LOL…

            Hubs:”So should we watch a movie??”
            Me: “Can you see I have the earbuds in?? YES or NO??

            lol… i’m just kidddding,… I didn’t give him any option. 😉

  136. Posted by Jeanjeanne on May 31, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    “THANK YOU, SULLY! So kind of you! My dear GBPL, nothing but admiration for you, really and truly.” The above post(up)was only to praise you all! Again, stunned! And mostly by you, Ria. Sorry Eggy, I’m a ‘True DV victim’ ( not even a survivor yet, still a victim) , but this is too much to take. Love and best to you all,

    • Posted by Sully on May 31, 2013 at 10:27 pm

      I hope you stay and contribute, Jean. I think this trial has brought raw emotions for victims of DV. I hope you get the help you need for whatever circumstances you find yourself in.

    • Thanks Jeanjeanne – Gosh I missed so much but am sad to hear you too are a true DV victim – Hang in there! Hope you can find your way out of that – it can get better!

  137. Posted by Jeanjeanne on May 31, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    Yes I’m a DV victim, but not the TRUE POINT of what I am trying to say, Sully. Having to endure ‘blog bullying’ is not what this, of all sites, should be about. Please read my committs to you, and the other ‘regs’ (only positive thoughts intended, but I guess this was my down fall) on this site, in the above posts. I am truly stunned and saddened. I truly admired you ALL and couldn’t wait to get a moment of free time to see the next hilarious and insightful thing you all had to say. But truly Sully, thank you for at least having the guts to even respond to me.

  138. Posted by Jeanjeanne on May 31, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    And Sully, please if you can, tell me what I said that may have warranted the ‘snarky’ responses I received? I thought that being a ‘reg’ on this amazing blog would have been a compliment. Can you explain?

    • Posted by Sully on June 1, 2013 at 6:36 am

      I think Jenniferlynn’s response below explains what I have apparently been unable to articulate. Absolutely no diss to you. Don’t know any other way to say it. Your comment was inserted in a cluster of comments where 3 of us were digging at each other, not you. Peace. Out.

  139. Posted by jenniferlyn on June 1, 2013 at 1:06 am

    You can tell me to f*ck off and mind my own business if you want, but from the objective viewpoint of someone not involved in the last 20+ comments, I think youbtook personally a comment not aimed at you, Jean. Once you misinterpreted that, it could make all subsequent comments SEEM rude, when that was not the intent.

    I certainly hope you don’t feel you have to leave, what’s great about hanging out in the the eggtree (besides the obviously rockin’ posts by Queen Egg. All Hail The Queen!) is that 99% of commenters can be mature, and argue their opinions passionately, without resorting to the name calling and other general nastiness that’s so prevalent on other blogs and websites. Like I said though, JMHO.

    • Posted by Sully on June 1, 2013 at 6:41 am

      Thanks, Jen. I don’t condone bullying cyber or otherwise. This was a misunderstanding pure and simple.

  140. Posted by GBPL on June 1, 2013 at 5:42 am

    My goodness,..I thought there was only one post that was taken out of context, its hard to remain on the bottom of the blog where you can post, and read posts on a phone? (Anyone tried that?)
    So I had to boot up my laptop to make sure that my response to Jeanjeans post up there posted, but there was more!
    No one is “taking over, or bullying” We are just posting and replying to our silly addiction to the case and this blog. Just being silly. I think i’ve only posted one serious post in all these many posts, but for the most part I don’t think I need to explain that I’m just being silly for the most part.
    Imagine my surprise when I got my cup of coffee, all too eager to see if Eggy posted another witty post, only to see that the little conversation of asking her to start a new one was taking so far out of context I dont’ even know where to begin.
    I asked you a simple question waaay up there , that you decided to take offense to, when I clearly stated I was asking a serious question. After you took offense, even after I again stated it was just a question. I let it go… you misunderstood, and that happens with the written word. I wasn’t going to go on and on about it.
    But like jenniferlyn said…you can’t take one comment out and missinterpet it, then all the others may “seem” rude. ,if you re-read in the way it was intended..you can laugh with all of us! or at least smile..as thats all we are trying to do.. make each other smile!

    I didn’t respond last night, because I logged off due to tornado warnings! So you took the ‘non-comment” as another diss, when I wasn’t even thinking I dissed someone, but rather taking cover for any incoming tornado’s.

    This is just a fun place to hang out and hear other peoples funny relations to this case and this blog. No hatefulness or dissing is ever intended.

    honestly…

    Now today really is my annivesary…and I was saying that I will find time to peek on here and maybe even get to post. So if you respond , and I don’t right away..thats why!

    • Posted by Ria on June 1, 2013 at 9:07 am

      Happy Anniversary GB! I was sleeping away while this was going on so I’m confused as to what the heck happened. But stay safe, tornado’s are scary!!!

      Hubs and I are going to run some errands but I did watch the David Lohr youtube video with the Demon singing O Holy Night…very interesting. I have some comments on it but will post later.

  141. Hi good afternoon every one, I wish Juan could have all female juors, so stabby cannot flirt with any men. I hope Juan can use the interrogation video where stabby says to Detective “I hurt Travis I would beg for the death penalty “.

    • Posted by GBPL on June 1, 2013 at 8:16 pm

      I agree Freedom! … Eggy has a new post where the convo continues… go there!

  142. The Law is Law! Stabby Einstein should get it. The only thing she has to tell the jury is lies and manipulations, Only look at the evidence as well as what the LAW says, and have no empathy, nor compassion other words leave all emotions from their discision. Especially, men.
