Like your observations. IMO, TA was becoming increasingly concerned about CMJA's behavior and was doing his best to try to distance himself. Just days after this email, he and Regan were texting back and forth about CMJA's stalking, with TA saying he was extremely afraid. Wish JM would/could focus more on this email. It helps to counter a lot of what was emphasized in trial. What really blows my mind is that it appears that this email may have been withheld from ALV. She made no mention of it, according to my notes and I was very attentive to her timeline testimony of the last several months of TA's life. Think about the date of this email and when it falls within events of which we have knowledge: -5/10 Sex tape -5/10 Angry exchange of texts & IMs re: Steve text. -5/15 Pix of JA and sister, Angela, on Helio phone. JA light brunette with blonde highlights. -5/17 or 5/18- Helio phone stolen -5/19 Travis and Regan text, discuss stalking. Travis very afraid. -5/22 JA journal entry. Good news: has received new cell phone to replace missing one that was stolen; mortified hugely scandalous text from him (10 pages) that he sent last week 1 or 2 recorded conversations. Also writes about the conversation with Travis. -5/26 Travis texts JA with explosive sociopath message, ending with You are the worst thing that ever happened to me. -5/27 Travis shows text of 5/26 to friend Taylor Searle, who asks him if he is afraid. JAs journal entry (per ALV) talks of plans to see Ryan Burns. -5/28 25 caliber handgun stolen from JAs grandparents home; break-in reported around 3:30 pm. Email from JA to Travis first mention of Cancun. -5/30 JA journal (per ALV) plans for following week to spend a couple of days with Ryan Burns. Verizon phone records show no contact between TA & JA. -5/31 Verizon phone records show no contact between TA & JA. -6/1 JA journal with long entry. Per ALV, subject is going to visit Darryl, Matt and Ryan. Entry talks about mentioning trip to Travis, who is guilting her into coming to Mesa, but JA stands ground. Per ALV, JA said she had talked to Travis on the phone on 6/1 telling him about her plans to see Ryan, however Verizon phone records show no contact between TA & JA on this date. ALV says text messages are conversational. -6/2 JA calls Travis 4 times from 1 am to 3 am; all calls are very brief. Travis makes 2 back to back calls (from 3 to 4 am) to JA lasting almost one hour.
