    North from Flagstaff, you end up in the Grand Canyon.

    She could have gone east of the Grand Canyon, but there would have been several difficulties. 1. she's an interstate kind of a gal. 2. she was trying to cover up for the fact that she wasn't supposed to be in AZ at all. If she went on an eastern route, she might have to explain not just why she was in AZ but what the heck she was doing in remote UT. 3. she wanted to use a cell phone within reach of NV towers. Another way would have meant hours before she could make a phone call. 4. she was familiar with the route she took.

    I just want to point out that Hwy 89 runs pretty much due north out of Flagstaff to Page, about 130 miles and almost to the Utah border. It skirts just east of the Grand Canyon, up to the Glen Canyon Dam where the Colorado is dammed to make Lake Powell. The first sizable town in Utah is Big Water, another 20 miles or so on Hwy 89 northwest of Page. I've driven this exact route in the opposite direction, from Zion National Park to Sedona.

    Not sure if this link will work or not:

    * I agree (for whatever that's worth) with all of the above. Nancy Grace's route map had Arias driving north straight through to Utah, but that didn't make sense to me because of everything you just listed, RickShaw.

    I think what was most important in her mind was she wanted to get back to the wide expanse of Interstate 15 (her cover-story route) as soon as possible, and Highway 60/93 out of Phoenix was the most direct route.

    I doubt she gave much thought to getting rid of any evidence in The Big Ditch though; too may tourists to someday uncover something, and way too much off-the-beaten-path desert in Utah and/or Nevada to serve as a fire pit/trash dump/burial site. I kinda wonder if she was prepared to kill anyone who may have just happened to stop by to check on her as she was burning or burying any evidence out in the wide open desert? I wouldn't put it past her.

    She really should have done a series of focus groups to see if her planning, preparations, route, timing, story, cover-story, excuses made the slightest bit of sense to them.

    Does anyone remember OJ's legal pad? I think Jodi needs one, too. That would be a hoot!

    Well, on this rainy Easter, obsessed with cars. I was reading JA journal entry from August 1-3 2007. She said her Infiniti had roadside assistance until November or 60,000--whichever came first.

    This car was under 60,000 miles, and had balled tires. She said TA pointed it out and she got new front tires. I'm assuming with the tax money she got. So when she was looking at tires in March, maybe she was getting back tires so the Infiniti would tow well on the way to Yreka.

    I don't know where she bought that car, but it would seem strange that she'd "give it back to the bank" in AZ. I don't know anything about losing a car to nonpayment, but it just seems strange that you'd voluntarily clean it up and get it ready--and take it yourself to surrender it. And all at the time you just "happen" to be moving. It would seem to me, but anyone who has been through it can say more, that you let the bank come and get it.

    Roadside assistance sounds like it came in a warranty and with the car under 60,000, I'm guessing it had to be new when she got it. How could a car with less than 60,000 miles on it be ghetto and crappy, I wonder. I'll admit, I was very bad at taking care of my new car. I had no idea what I was doing. It only lasted 109,000 miles, BUT 16 years. anyways, it was still in great condition at 60,000. She really must have put that car through some extreme crap.

    If it was "ghetto," I wonder how Travis felt about driving it. I'm guessing she was making it up so she could drive his car and have a tie with him. Maybe she even did something to the Infiniti, as "proof" that it was ghetto. I do recall him "getting rides from his peeps," so maybe he didn't really want to drive her car unless he had to? Maybe he didn't want people seeing him in her car?

    What's odd is that Travis would keep letting her drive it after she slashed the tires. But, then again, he didn't 100% accept that she'd done it until later.
    BBM. Yeah, it's not like you're going to be getting a cleaning deposit back on it like an apartment you rented...

    I've driven to Flagstaff from Phoenix and on northward to St. George's, Utah. It is a major highway.

    Hi! I was reading an old article written during the first trial (http://www.examiner.com/slideshow/gr...trial#slide=14) that has crime scene photos and there was one that I'd never seen before and I can't figure out what it is. Does anybody know what this is? Thank you!!

    It's kind of hard to tell sometimes with photos but to me this looks like some of the laundry that was taken out of the washing machine.

    Yes, I have been there many times. She'd have had an awful lot of 'splainin' if she pinged in any of that area. I think we also worked out upthread that it wouldn't have been fewer miles than the Kingman route, and she knew the road.

    I do think she could have gone over the border into CA and headed north from there. She then would have been in a position to say she never went to AZ.

    Thank you so much to the websleuthers that helped me identify that crime scene photo.

    I have one more photo that I would love some help with (side note: the following was discussed a few threads up but can't find it now so please forgive me if it was resolved).....in JM's book it bothered me to read that when JM inspected the crime scene that he noted that the now infamous book "A 1,000 Places to See Before You Die" was on Travis' nightstand. I envisioned POS tormenting him with it as she flew into her rage. As was discussed on an earlier thread, the picture of Travis' bedroom inside JM's book did not show the left nightstand and the right nightstand did not have anything that resembled a book. I came across a picture that I had screen shot a long time ago (most likely it was from this forum so I apologize for not giving proper credit) but it has both nightstands in the photo and was wondering if that is "the book" sitting on the left nightstand? I've attached the screen shot photo (my 2 cents are in red) and a close-up of the nightstand. Thank you all for your help!!

    I always wondered about that highway (89). I thought it might be a one lane (each way) highway cutting through a mountain pass like the 152 does between the 101 and the 5 (which I'm sure you've driven, LinasK). Or the 41 up to Yosemite. And those sort of mountain highways generally take longer because they're generally hilly and not straight and wide open. But on Google's map, 89 in northern Arizona looks identical to 395 here in Calif so I guess she could've just zipped on up and over the hill to Utah on 89 if she really wanted to.
