It really is becoming obvious to me.
Feb - June ~ 140 days.
It was an approx. 140 day long distance alleged "official"relationship
Jodi then "breaks up" with Travis why? He was unfaithful to her.
So at this point she decides to move from CA to AZ and live 5 min from him.
There is NO TIME after that point that Jodi says they were "official" again.
Why because she can't! All of his friends knew better!
It was always lie plain and simple.
The great enemy of the truth
is very often not the lie,
deliberate, contrived and dishonest,
but the myth,
persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.
John F. Kennedy
He was never "unfaithful" because he never saw their
relationship as exclusive. He (for the most part)
saw her as a "companion"and nothing more.
All her actions after moving to AZ
prove it. They were deliberate, contrived and dishonest
Somewhere in the mix Jodi got confused.
Oh I think they were both living a "dream"
for a time.
Jodi was seeing herself as starring in a Disney movie
but the reality is Travis was watching a "porn flick".
I guess Jodi didn't stop and think that none of the Disney
Princess' got their Prince by baiting him with sex.
I saw "Beauty and the Beast"
This was "The Prostitute and the Prince"
and I don't mean that in a "Pretty Woman"
kind of way!
~Jodi is the villain here
*shh don't tell ALV~ or she will have a new theory
For 1.4 million $ - they better have something working cos it sure isn't in the courtroom.

I don't think mature adults ever need to shove, etc. That's not to say that our pasts will show that we were always mature adults
I threw things (not at people) and yelled loudly. You don't really do that. Lesson learned! I guess I was abusive, yes. That's horrible, but there you go. Fortunately, my man knew I was just being a big baby and wasn't afraid. He was also 6'4" and near 300 lbs, so that helps with the fear thing
I'd never think that was the way bad arguments should go now. I had only moved out from home a couple of years before getting with him, so the dysfunctional learning came into play bigtime until I grew up more. I think that's 'normal', if not a good thing
We grow up. If folks don't change that, I'd certainly say it's a form of abuse, though. Adults don't need to get physical in anger -- ever, unless they are fending off an attacker or something, imho. No temper tantrums, either!
I think if I were a juror I would be avoiding any outside info about this trial - not b/c of the admonition, but for my sanity.
I'm sure they've had enough by the end of the day.
EYE for an EYE
And endless money. I am still blown away with the experts' expenses.
I guess if you are guilty of a crime, it is best not to have any money.
Suck the state dry with expenses.

RIP Travis Alexander.
It really seems that the jury would be exposed too easily to all the media rants ect. Why did they not sequester the jury i wonder.

And I think Dan Freeman is totally crushing on Jodi. He was the one who called her to tell her about Travis EVEN THOUGH everyone was saying she was the one who killed him. What it is that men see in her is beyond me. I think she is pretty, but I can't imagine him calling Jodi to keep her in the loop. I mean, he was Travis's friend too!!
Well I lost another post. I was bringing over a post about two movies AVL named in her testimony and one was The Burning Bed.
This is a true story about Francine Hughes. Her husband would beat her almost senseless. Made her eat her own vomit, forced her to have sex when ever he wanted it. He'd sit in a chair when the police were called and tell her that he'd kill her when the police left. The police would listen and then drive away, then he'd beat her again.
He let her go back to school then was jealous of that and made her tear out and burn her class work. After another beating and forced sex that day she pour kerosine around the bed after he passed out and lit a match. She grabbed her three kids and drove to the police station to turn herself in.
Her mother in law said it was Francine's fault that Mickey beat her. She needed to of killed him way before that. The system let her down and blamed her when she sought help to get away.
I can see Travis pushing Jodi away when she attacked him, or when he'd tell her to leave and she wouldn't, and I don't blame him.
I wonder how ALV is going to spin Jodi testifying that she liked to push Travis's buttons? I'm sure it will be Travis's fault
Jodi has named her parents and herself as abusers when she hit her brother, and then she kicked a helpless dog.

I'm shallow, but the bangs were a bad choice. It clearly shows to the jury- hey we totally changed her look. Her hair wasn't even dyed that shade of brown when she dyed it brown. It was a lighter caramel brown. So in Jodi land, blonde is bad and brown is good? Lame. I know of many people who can de edify that claim.
Why does the detective sit at the table with JM? That's not common in other states is it?
JUSTICE FOR TRAVIS!!!
She would never have gone to the bishop and confessed while Travis was still alive because her bishop would then have promptly contacted Travis' bishop and Travis would be called in.
The fact that Travis went to his bishop and confessed after JA moved back to Yreka means that he 1)promised not to see her again, and 2) was put on probation (possibly disfellowshipped which means can't receive communion or bless people)...but he wasn't excommunicated because he came forth voluntarily. If he sinned again, he would certainly be excommunicated unless there were mitigating circumstances (such as being tied up and forced).
We see this in his behavior when he did not follow through on his plans to visit JA in Yreka. He was sincere in his repentance.
When you understand that Jodi might not have known Travis had been to his bishop, you begin to see how the motive was accelerated for the murder. She shows up and he rejects her sexual advances. Over the following hours she learns that Mimi Hall has replaced her on the Cancun trip. She already knows he wants to get married but perhaps thinks the secret travels/sexcapades are going to continue regardless-- until she finds out he has been to the bishop without telling her.
In Mormon culture, it is considered a betrayal to go to the bishop and confess without giving your partner the opportunity to do the same thing concurrently, and thereby avoiding a perpetrator/victim view of the fornication. If you each go to your separate bishops at the same time, or both go to one bishop, it goes much easier on you If you say you are setting a wedding date, it will go very easy on you. Chances are you will not even be disfellowshipped.
With Travis putting his membership in jeopardy if he has sex with JA again, that clearly points to JA's motive to fake a sex scene to go with the phone sex in order to blackmail TA into silence. At this point, she knows she will not remain his girlfriend or his dirty little secret because he is not going to give up his membership for her--no way. That would ruin him at PPL as well. And his ability to sell a book would be nil. An excommunicated person sometimes can't even get work in Utah and some parts of Idaho and Arizona.
Her only chance to continue to prey on Mormon men and meet wealthy ones who don't know her low class morals and social status, is to silence Travis. He foolishly has threatened to expose her to all their friends for the things she has done and the stalking, etc. He knows she is a sociopath but somehow does not know they are DANGEROUS. If he follows through with his threat, she is back to living off tips in her grandmother's extra bedroom.
This is why he had to die. He refused to be silenced and she knew one foolproof way to maintain her ability to continue the Mormon/PPL goldmine she discovered and that was to kill him.
I am sure jealousy was a factor but survival as a female bombshell predator feeding on these virginal returned missionaries was paramount, imo.
