I’m sorry. 05:42 JA: That’s okay 05:43 FO: This is just formality, umm… and this is, you know, if I have to, you know, write up a report of what we talked about, at least so I know word for word what you said and there’s no mistakes. Okay, so it’s for your own protection or good that they we record it. 05:58 FO: Umm… and before we go any further I need to read you your Miranda Rights again, just to make sure that you understand.

Do you understand? 06:17 JA: Yes. 06:18 FO: If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you free of charge, before any questioning, if you want. Do you understand that? 06:23 JA: Mm hmm. 06:24 FO: Okay. The reason that I wanted to talk with you this morning -- there’s a couple of reasons actually. Umm…I have been privy to the investigation umm…and all of the evidence in this case umm… and to your conversation with Detective Flores yesterday and there’s…there’s really no…Umm…let me say this. It’s obvious to me that, you know, you’re not umm… You’re not our typical suspect. You know, you come from a good home, a good family. Your parents obviously care about you, umm that was evident, you know, when I talked to them yesterday. Umm…and you’re a bright girl – umm probably more intelligent than you were letting on yesterday, and there’s no question in my mind or any of the other investigators minds that you were the person that took Travis’ life, but what I need to know, what I’d like to know, and give you the opportunity to do is determine whether, you know, you’re a cold blooded, cold hearted murderer who slaughtered this guy or are you somebody that got caught up in circumstances and things got out of control, because I think that is what happened. Honestly! In looking at everything and all of the facts and in talking to people, you know, I think in every person that anybody could be capable of harming another person. I think it’s in our nature and, in general, most people suppress that. Umm…but I think given the right circumstances and, you know, the right time and the right place, anybody could be, you know, capable of harming another person. I see that on a regular basis. Umm…what I generally see are the, you know, the cold hearted ruthless types. What I don’t see very often, Jodi, are people like yourself that are intelligent, and spiritual, and caring, and umm…so I tend to believe that it was an incident or circumstance if you will. Umm…it looks as if, you know, this guy, Travis, umm…you know befriended you, you got into this relationship and it certainly looks to me like he took advantage of your generosity and your kindness. Umm…you know one of the other detectives had described him to you as a player. Umm…and I don’t think that that’s very far off from everything that I’ve seen, and I don’t think there’s a woman out there that hasn’t been umm…treated badly or taken advantage of by men like that, and I’m hoping, because you come from a good family and because you have, you know, a decent background, I’m hoping that you’ll be smart about things and make some good choices for yourself to help better your situation. When this hits the news, umm…and it will, it will go to the media, do you want to be portrayed as that cold blooded, cold hearted murderer because the media loves that. That’s not, you know, that won’t be our words or their words when they do a press release but that’s what the media will take a look at the facts and that’s what they’ll portray it as or do you want to be portrayed as a person that didn’t mean to have any of this happen – it just got out of hand and you’re remorseful? You know which way do you want to go? How do you want to portray yourself? (No response from Jodi) 10:48 FO: You’re a businesswoman, is that correct? (No response from Jodi) 10:51 FO: Okay. And you have a couple of different businesses going, Right? (No response from Jodi) 10:57 FO: So you’re a smart girl, Jodi, a smart woman. Umm…you got to have a lot on the ball to be, you know, your own businesswoman and balancing everything the way you do because it sounds like you had a lot going on and a lot of juggling and balancing. You’re obviously very organized, well read, umm… 11:20 JA: I would say well read but not organized. 11:23 FO: Not organized? Why so? 11:25 JA: Umm…I just…I procrastinate, so things… papers pile up and things don’t get filed on time and umm…I lose stuff and I find it later when I don’t need it anymore. You know, when I do need it I can’t find it. 11:39 FO: Okay. 11:40 JA: Just general stuff like that. 11:41 FO: Well, maybe you’re not as organized as I had thought so certainly… 11:45 JA: Well, I try, I mean I go through these periods where like today is devoted to organization, and then I’ll get organized and it will be that way for a little while and I’ll kind of let it slide and then I’ll have to go back and clean up again… 11:55 FO: Mmm hmm…all right. So, I think that you know the reason you’re here is I think that you should have at least one more shot at the opportunity to do the right thing. You know you say that you’re spiritual – those are my words not yours but that’s certainly what I got out of you know reading and looking at everything that umm…you have some sort of relationship with God or some sort of deep spirituality, and so did Travis, and umm…it sounds like, you know, you cared about what umm…Travis’ family thought of him umm maybe what they thought of you. I don’t know whether you ever met them. 12:45 JA: I met his grandmother. 12:46 FO: Okay. 12:47 JA: A few times.
