I suppose InSession will spend the morning prior to live trial showing the LE witnesses and some of the crime scene photos. If you have the opportunity to watch, note the size of the tassel(s)? found in the bathroom. The ruler was in millimeters and it is roughly 25 mm to an inch. Based on the scale, it (they?) were just over ONE INCH in length. On re-direct, Martinez had the witness identify pillows in the bedroom which had similar tassels. I wonder how the tassel got in the bathroom, but we will probably never know.
There was also a length of a heavy, thread-like material on one of the stairs. One thing is for sure: if that came from a pillow, it was in no way the "rope" the defense claims Travis used to bind Jodi. It's way too short. In fact, I have to wonder if one of the tasseled throw-pillows is involved. Perhaps Travis grabbed it when he ran to the bedroom after being stabbed and tried to use it to shield himself from further stab wounds. I wonder if there is a pillow missing from the set.
As for the deadly knife, the defense briefly mentioned in the opening that Travis used a knife to cut the "rope" to bind Jodi. Hello? It would take a pair of scissors to remove a tassel from a pillow, not a butcher knife strong enough to pierce the heart and slit a throat.
I still believe it was fully pre-meditated murder. Here's my list of clues:
1. The stolen gun
2. Dying her hair
3. Out-of-town car rental
4. Messing with the license plates
5. Knowledge of when his roommates would be out of town (hacked computer?)
The greatest trespasser on justice still wishes it done to him.
