    hhhmmm I did hear her say "it just went off". Isn't that different than shooting him in self defense? If "it just went off", then that's an accident and therefore isn't self defense, right? Wouldn't that claim in itself nulify her self-defense defense?

    I would doubt they ever existed, however if they did that was a long time ago and I doubt anyone would have kept damaged CDs.

    Would it be possible for the jury to look at Jodi's left ring finger to see if there is a cut along the tendon? vs a break?

    Hi again,

    I posted a few posts up, looking for a specific text message. I'm not sure where they would be posted - but I did find what I was looking for and did screencaps.

    Here are the links (a few people above also are looking for them) Thanks

    The forensics (from what I understand) shows he was shot last. Does anyone else think the last picture of him sitting down in the shower seems odd? His facial expression is haunting to me. I am thinking that she already had control of him at that moment. From the angle of the stab wounds and shots she would have had to been standing over him.

    An alternate juror when the case goes to the jury goes to the jury room and wait while the regular jurors deliberate on the case. The alternate usually goes to the main jury room where the regular jurors goes to the jury room associated with that particular court room. The alternate does not deliberate or vote but if a question is asked or if the jury wants to look at some evidence then that alternate jury is ask to look at the evidence too. The alternate is there until the judge dismissed them. In this case where a verdict is reach with 12, then if a jury gets ill while deliberating then that alternate would still have the facts and presents facts to have a voice in their vote.

    Looking only at the finger it would be impossible to tell (edit) that information. The most they could tell just by looking is at any scarring she would have there. (end edit)

    An x-ray of her finger *might* show evidence of a previous break if it occurred - actually it would only *possibly* show evidence of a previous break that had healed...most times extra bone or calcium deposits would show, or if a bone was broken but not re-set so it healed straight - but it depends on many, many factors. - how badly it was broken, if so, did it heal straight or was it not set so it would heal straight - how much time has elapsed since the break and the new x-ray - dependent on age of the person, how bad the break was, how fast that specific person heals, what shape the person has been in, any vitamin deficiencies, if that person has arthritis, joint disease, and other factors.

    A Radiologist would probably be able to tell there was an injury "in the past" they can not tell how long ago it happened with any accuracy.

    A bone density test could be done and it would show more than a 'regular x-ray' but still would not be able to tell you when it happened to any accurate degree.

    An MRI could, or probably would, show past or current tendon damage. But again, there is no way to accurately tell *when* it happened.

    In all cases above, soft tissue damage (ex; bruises) would probably not show up unless the injury was new.

    If it was a larger bone than just a finger (and we are most likely talking a tendon and/or joint injury, not just a tiny little finger bone) - say, a femur or rib, clavicle, etc more healing bone growth would show up and there would be a better chance of getting an idea of when it happened... however, even then, they would be unable to pinpoint when it happened, especially without any previous records - to either days, months, years. More like longer spans of years. Example; either from birth to age 20 or age 20 to now.

    Thanks for the new thread. My question:

    Does court usually break for lunch at 1 Arizona time? Am trying to plan and need an estimate on this. Thanks

    I guess it could, but considering Jodi's credibility, I don't believe the gun "just went off".

    Why do the THs (especially Vinnie Politano) keep saying "it's a heavily Mormon area and that may affect the jury"?

    Mesa, AZ and the surrounding Maricopa County have about the same percentage of LDS adherents: 12%. That's about a quarter the number of Roman Catholics in the same jurisdictions.

    http://www.city-data.com/county/Maricopa_County-AZ.html


    I think we can find a lot of Western communities with similar numbers (and even higher numbers in Utah, of course).

    If the jury is representative, that will result in 1 Mormon on the final panel. Hardly "Mormon dominated".

    IMO, at most, the number of Mormons in Phoenix may make it less likely that the jury will dismiss Alexander's beliefs as "cultish" or "weird and abusive".

    Question Hair dye purchase

    I don't think they've ever been able to determine that the unknown purchases at Walmart were for hair dye. Has anyone found this out? Is there still an issue of what color her hair was when she rented the car. It seems to me that the color issue has been dropped.

    I also would like a link to see what stuff was in Jodi's car. I also wonder if there's a link to Jodi's mom talking to the police about the gun in Jodi's car. And I wonder where exactly was Jodi going?? Links please.

    Some people say Jodi surprised Travis showing up at his place the day she killed him. Aren't there lots of phone calls and text messages between her and Travis prior to her arriving, and over the course of the weeks prior to her arriving?? It seems to me that Travis and Jodi would have had their time together planned-out, because neither would want any interruption.

    I also wonder: If someone deletes their text messages, are those retrievable, or are they gone forever?

    Random thoughts:

    1. Gas cans. Did JM ever ask JA if she ever brought containers of gasoline with her on her numerous sojourns between Palm Desert and SLC/and or Mesa? Or to other destinations, i.e. Monterey, Pasadena, etc. She was a self-admitted 'road trip' junkie - obviously paranoid about running out of gas in the middle of the night in the desert. Or was it just on the road trip to murder Travis that she suddenly feared running out of gas?

    2. JA's 'inadvertent' foot picture. Has it been determined if JA was wearing shoes or socks? I have viewed that photo dozens of times and it looks like a shoe. IIRC, JM asked her what she did with the socks. She couldn't remember. Could she have put socks on over her shoes? Seems unlikely, but with JA, anything is possible. I have to believe she was too 'smart' to wear shoes for obvious reasons.

    3. Premeditation. Does the fact that JA claims that she and Travis had 2 sex episodes after she arrived take all of the obvious premeditation before and during the road trip to Mesa off the table up to that point? Of course, premed goes back on the table during the 100 or so seconds it took to murder him, i.e. the knife AND the gun.

    The fact still remains that she is a pathological liar who murdered TA in cold blood. If I were a juror, I would dismiss ALL of her testimony, plus that of Samuels, and vote for the DP. If she doesn't deserve the ultimate punishment, who does???
