    I am just finishing up Juan's rebuttal and am SO anxious...I haven't been as diligent or devout in my Baptist-ness as I should, but I haven't found myself praying so ardently for anything in a LONG time. I'm praying for wisdom for this jury...but I almost feel as though I don't need to because to me, the photos that shockingly portray TA's death that managed to survive even after being deleted and put in the washing machine are the greatest example of God's hand in this JUSTICE that we are all about to witness.

    It's coming....

    The first time I watched her on HLN, I thought WHY is this woman screaming, wow, neither my hubby or I can stand to watch her.

    Or asking the Judge for permission for the DT to get Jodi something to eat.

    So JW & JA taking notes during Juan's final argument? What for? Why? Show's over kids. Do you think it's just busy work?

    Thanks Alexander Family Fan:

    I have already said my prayer but will fast on Sunday if a verdict is not reached by then. Hope everyone sees this post!

    I seriously cannot watch her! The TV's all get muted if I see her, period.

    Could NOT BELIEVE it when she saddled up behind Juror #8 earlier today, trying to engage him & his wife in conversation... pathetic!!!!!

    She has NO shame, zero, nada. I think I can't watch her because it's embarrassing! If I'm all alone in the room, it's so awkward!! uggghhh

    Yes they are.
    I don't remember exactly, but not longer than an hour ago.
    Yes. 8 men and 4 women. 10,15 and 17 are alternates.
    They chose to deliberate from 9-4:30

    It was actually the Wendi Adriano case. Someone posted this great link earlier this week where some of the jurors from that case gave an interview. It's a great read.

    I copied this from page 1 of the "a view from the inside" thread.

    Jurors are 1.2,3,4,6,7,9,12,13,14,16,18 Godspeed to them:please:


    paste from KBisme


    Quote:
    Ok, so I'll start on my notes. First, I couldn't see Jodi from where I was sitting because an interns head was blocking my view of her. I did have a great view of the jury though, so almost all of my notes are about them. I'll first start with adding my take on each of them to Anita's awesome list. I made a list of my own because I wasn't as smart as PASA (she printed Anita's list and had it with her). My comments are in purple.

    Jurors

    1.Church Lady- Mid 50's, short hair, no make-up, glasses.
    This lady looks absolutely disgusted the whole time. I never once saw her look in the direction of JA. Not ONCE. She either stares straight forward or looks at JM.

    2.Trump-Guy in 40's, lots of hair, car salesman look.
    I called this guy "Comb Over" he had his head resting on his hand almost the whole time. He also never looks at JA. He seemed to be paying attention, but also seemed bored.


    3.Housewife-She is a big lady (tall and heavy set, not obese) with a very sweet face, no make-up.
    Interesting different view today. I called her the "Angry Neighbor Lady" Lol. I wrote that she follows along, but has a constant "sour puss". I don't know if it's just "her look" or what, but she seemed to be frowning every time I looked at her.


    4.Grandpa-Bald, sweet faced older man that looks like my grandpa.
    I also named this man Grandpa. He does have a sweet face and seems the "calm" type.


    5.excusedTricolor-Early 30's, short, stylish haircut with three colors, reminds me of one of my hairstylists.
    This is the only one I remembered Anita's name for because her hair stood out, Lol. She reminded me of my best friend. She probably gave more facial expressions than any of the others. She is very engaged and took a fair amount of notes.


    6.Nancy-Lady in her 50's, lovely face, reminds me of Nancy Reagan with glasses, short sassy haircut.
    I called her Spikey Hair. Anita's description is better. She was the only one I saw look at Jodi when the jury first walked in. She took a lot of notes.


    7.Paul Rudd-Younger guy, mid-late 20's with spiky hair, sweat jacket, looks like the actor Paul Rudd.
    He does look like Paul Rudd, but with shorter hair. He's a good looking young man.


    8.Excused)The CEO-Good looking man, mid 50's with goatee. Can see him being the jury foreman.
    I called this guy "The Dad". He looks nothing like my dad, Lol, but for whatever reason... I got a fatherly feel from him.


    9.Willy-Old hippy with long white ponytail, thin, small build.
    This guy looked PIZZED the whole time. He seemed to be staring towards the media lady or just into the corner. I only saw him look at JM or JA maybe once.


    10.(alternate)Barb-Female, 40's, has the "sexy librarian" look, wearing a form fitting sweater, slender build and voluptuous. If ANYONE on the jury is offended by disparaging comments regarding breast augmentation, my guess is it would be her. She is the only juror I couldn't see very clearly; just when she entered and exited the courtroom and when I stretched up out of my seat to gawk at her.
    I called this lady "Plain Jane" She was very hard to see from where I was, but I could tell she was taking notes quite a bit.


    11 (excused)Excused for duration of the trial due to illness.Poquito-Little Mexican guy (maybe 5'3) with long graduated pony tail, lots of facial hair and piercings.
    I called him "Paco" He was hard to see too, but mostly because he was slouched down in his seat I thought he'd fall off Lol. At one point he was bent over instead of slouching, but still very hard to see.


    12.Neil-Early 50's high forehead, glasses, looks very nervous and turns red easily. This is the guy that makes KCL nervous.
    I called this guy "Jim" I wrote "very hard to read".


    13.The Wrestler-Younger good looking guy, large build.
    I called this guy "The Jock" He reminded me a little of Oz on American Pie (Chris Klein).


    14.Old potsmoking CPA (I have no idea why I wrote this, i have ZERO recollection of this juror. He did not make any impression on me, other than when I was going down the rows naming them.)
    I called this guy Sleepy. He swiveled in his chair a lot and fell asleep at least twice. He was also slouched down in his chair.


    15.(alternate)Elderly Man-This man is definitely the oldest juror, he occasionally uses the headphones to listen to the proceedings that Jodie's Auntie uses.
    I called him "Captain" He has a very intense gaze. It's hard to describe but he gives off a stubborn and no bs vibe. Maybe ex military or something?


    16.Maureen-Red haired, glasses (the red might be too red to be a natural ginger) If I had to guess one Mormon on the jury, it would be her.
    I called her The Secretary. She took a lot of notes and had a "polished" look to her. She had her whole body turned facing Jodi. I barely saw her look at JM. She was the only one that really made me feel nervous at all.


    17.(alternate)Pony Tail-Young girl, pony tail, plain, pony tail and sweats.
    I called her frumpy lady. Not in a rude way... it's just the word that came to mind. Very plain. She took a lot of notes.


    18.The Artist-Bald, attractive, glasses, 50's-60's, large build, holds his notebook on a binder as if he's going to sketch. He looks around the gallery a lot. I thought we met eyes a couple of times, but who knows, that room is so huge!
    This guy also had a very intense gaze. He took some notes. He rubbed his face and tapped his fingers to his lips a lot. He wasn't the only one doing stuff like that, but I'll get into that in my notes.

    Juan would never purposefully do that anyway. He knows perfectly well the jury can read the transcript when that particular question and answer discussion was going on.

    99% of the posters I have seen have always thought she sliced a tendon from the slippery bloody knife blade that day. I am sure that none of the jurors were surprised when Juan brought that out.

    IMO

    I was thinking they have an hour and a half, first they need to pick a forman, then take some time to get to know each other, maybe there will be something for them to eat and drink, then the forman will ask how everyone feels, Hopefully they will all feel the same, quilty of course, then send a note to the judge saying "we're ready". LOL maybe wishfull thinking
