    That's a great theory. It would certainly explain all the unaccounted for moolah.

    It clear that Jodi completely underestimated Travis's will to live and didn't expect him to fight the way he did. I do believe she attacked him in shower in an effort to contain the crime scene and limit clean up. Assuming the stab to the heart came first, she most likely expected it to incapacitate or kill him immediately, and when that didn't happen, all hell broke loose.

    I agree. Her anger at his final resolution to get her out of his life meant she wanted the killing to be personal and painful. A knife is much more personal than a gun. I believe the gun was a back up, just in case, and she shot him because his body expelled the air in his lungs after his death and she thought he might still be alive.

    Yeah, I went back and corrected my OP. I meant Dan. Who's doing the "purporting"?

    All the THs keep saying if JA wanted to kill TA why not when she got there with the gun. Too much noise and she wanted to use her knife. Why only one shot? Because she had to silence his death sounds as roomate came home, before he came into the house. JMHO

    About 5 minutes into croakerqueen's part 2 of day 55, JM is talking about Jodi standing there, watching Travis for 45 seconds without saying anything. JM goes, "Who does that?" and Jodi practically busted out laughing to herself.

    Yeah, true.

    She could of wrote it out and handed it over to MM who would then write it.

    The part where Juan pointed out that Travis could see Jodi stabbing him in the mirror was particularly heart wrenching.

    Hey thanks for the idea. I was going to watch paint dry rather than listen to Wilmot or Nurmi :gasp: but now that you mention is, doing laundry sounds more fun. :floorlaugh:

    I agree! If Juan's walk through the murder wasn't exactly right, I believe it was VERY close to what actually happened. Must freak her out to know they can put together the scenario so completely with her having planned it out thinking she had covered all her tracks. (gas, car rental, "robbery" of the 25 caliber, etc)

    Wonder if the men on the jury with SO's asked them tonight "Have you been faking?" "You have? What else have you been lying about?"

    Agreed. Along with being angry, he sounded humiliated at the same time. I also think she has tapes/pics/videos of every man who has been within 2 feet of her. Locked away somewhere, for future use to use against them.

    I guess she didn't have earphone, bluetooth, speaker phone.....

    I don't know that a woman needs two hands because she needs extra simulation, but I'd be way across the border of TMI to explain a couple of reasons a woman might need two hands.

    I think Jodi thought the cops would think it was two killers by using two weapons. From what I've seen it's unusual for a single killer to use two different weapons.

    Then when they could prove that she was there she came up with the ninja stoy. JMO
