Hey guys & girls, I have just joined here after spending days upon days reading each thread on the Travis Alexander murder. I am so grateful to be able to come on board as it's a really nice group of people here.
Please forgive me for the jumping right in the deep end here, but I have some troubling questions.
I have figured out the "Accidental Image" of TA and Jodi and there's a reason why everyone here was having a hard time figuring it out. Part of the image was cut off / cropped in most of the news media, so I went
and found the image shown in court and pointed out a few things I noticed.
Jodi is on her knees, you can see the sole or underside of her sneaker/trainer , she is LEFT handed so this matches up to the wound bleeding over the right shoulder first.
This image also matches up to the image below where you can see that the tile
meet and match up as indicated in the above image. The blood pooling and the round head shape also match up to this being the area where TA's throat was slit.
We know Jodi had a camera, but the camera strap was left in the bag in the master bedroom, (The witness on the stand said the cord was unopened in the original packaging) The camera was found in the washer without a strap.
We know the murder and pictures were all time stamped within 1 minute, so the murder and pictures took 1 minute and 38 seconds (Max)
My questions are :
A: How was Jodi able to take these images in 1 minute whilst murdering TA? without any camera strap to hold the camera?
B: How was she able to drag TA's body with the camera and the camera accidently snap an image of the ceiling?
C: Travis is alive in the image above as his arm is flexing , this image (imo) shows Jodi halfway through slitting his throat. Travis would be able to lift his arm for a few seconds before succumbing to dizziness and unconsciousness
Did Jodi set a timer on the camera? if so , how was she able to keep travis down long enough to pick the camera up and set the clock?
The roommates said that for 5 days they had not noticed any foul odors whilst staying in the shared house. He even said he got home at around 6pm.
Enrique Cortez Jr: My work was usually from 8-4:30 in Tempe doing check fraud. At the time I was using the bus because gas was over $4.00/gallon. I would drive to Superstition Springs Mall, catch the 61 westbound, and got off at Priest and Southern. The ride was probably about an hour and 15 minutes. That bus ride home that day was probably what kept me from walking into a bad situation since I probably got home around 6 or later
Hang on a second, we know Jodi was most likely still there at 6pm! she was placing clothes in the washer. The Prosecution believe she was most likely there for up to 1-2 hours after.
The murder happened within a few minutes, she had to clean herself up, gather her things, drag Travis to the shower and take her time down in the laundry room.
Am I to believe that the roommate who got home 1/2 hour after the murder never saw Jodi? never noticed anything at all?
The roommate's ride home takes 1 hour and 15 mins. Which if he left say, from around 4:40-4:45 pm - this would take him up to around 6pm.
The Roommate says
You also have to remember how big the house was (4500-5000 sq ft) and how the master suite, including the bathroom, occupies only one side, with the other bedrooms on the opposite side of a huge loft from the bathroom's location. That Monday night was the first time I was noticing the smell because it took that long to finally leave the bathroom and reach that side of the top floor
We know Mimi Hall (first person on the scene, Monday, day 5) who took the stand last week stated "As soon as we walked through the front door it smelled bad"
The smell travelled from upstairs down to the front living area , so when Mimi Hall walked through the front door she could smell it.
So why would it take 5 days to reach the other side of the loft upstairs, a shorter distance away? Not to mention the fact that the roommates have to walk through the Front Door
and go up the Stairs
Doesn't add up. Didn't they use the laundry room, kitchen - (at the bottom of the stairs) in those 5 days? am I to believe they didn't eat downstairs, feed the dog, notice the dog barking? (Mimi said the dog was barking and running around, hadn't been attended to in 5 days)
Mimi (Marie) Hall noticed the smell right away , so why didn't the roommates notice the smell, they had been living there for 5 days after the murder.
How could they only notice it that Monday?
My Mind Boggles.......
