I was bothered by the text Jodi sent from Travis' phone too! But, I suppose the script writers felt that surely something occurred immediately prior to cause Jodi to go into full murderous rage mode.
That scene was quite difficult to watch.
I will say there was at least one incident that came out in trial that Jodi texted Lisa Andrews from Travis's phone something to the effect of "I'm with Jodi right now". I believe that was around the the time that Ttavis told her to go kick rocks abd move back to Yreka a month before his death.
So we know that she did text Lisa from his phone at least once.
I just think the movie sympathized with Jodi too much...
The actor that player Travis did great and I can tell he studied Travis's facial mannerisms, but I wish he had the humor Travis had. Travis was pretty silly and child like which is why he is endearing to me. he had a certain innocence about him that Jodi wanted to suck away like a Vampire.
And they made Travis look like it was all the sex that attracted him to her - it wasn't... He was a care taker and encourager. A fragmented person like Jodi is the very type of person Travis has a weakness for wanting to help. IMO
