    What do YOU think the prosecution will use in the rebuttal case? Discuss it here:

    For SURE this will be rebutted imhoo.

    Most likely he will have the friend testify that went to the range with him.

    I am thinking this will be rebutted by the ME and perhaps the blood spatter analyst

    1) there was no stipulation
    2) the trajectory did not match
    3) the round landed on top of blood
    4) most likely the spatter does not match that location for a shot (in that area of the bathroom)

    If Matt does not take the stand for the defense he will be called to rebut Arias' testimony (he is the only witness to seeing marks per Arias). He is also will testify, most likely, that Arias was trying to tamper with his testimony/tampering with a witness.

    I think Juan can rebut all of this camera/picture nonsense by calling the camera expert to testify to how the camera works to delete and take pictures. This camera could not snap off unintentional pictures if it was dropped in delete mode

    oh fgs I hope he rebuts this with the ME. No way he was doing any such thing after he was shot thru the frontal lobe

    guessing here: but I think the state will call their mental health expert to provide another reason for Arias to lie the way she does (esp as there is an absence of any corroborating evidence of abuse)

    I think we may see the car guy again. He goes over the cars with a fine toothed comb and I am sure he has a checklist of what was in the car when it was rented to Arias.

    I can also see Juan showing him the picture of her mug shot and asking if her hair was a different color... then showing him another picture of her with blonde hair and him matching it up.

    <kinda scary considering that Juan can rebut any of the defense CIC which includes 8 complete days of Arias' testimony! :eek:>

    hopefully Juan could come up with some sort of rebuttal for the fibers. Arias claims it is rope and she took it with her. Hopefully they can rebut that rope carp and tie the fiber to one of the bedding items, etc.


    (fwiw I have never seen rope have fibers that are one inch long <belch>)


    the rope story is just another example of her trying to make the forensics fit her story vs the truth of the matter

    I hope and pray that Juan rebuts the time of the murder that arias claimed on the stand. I kind of hope that he let her ramble on and lock herself into her latest version because he has something up his sleeve..

    I am sort of hoping he has some sort of reenactment with a stopwatch (not sure if that is possible)

    here is some info I posted on the other thread about diaphragm spasm (loosing your breath). It takes as long to just recover from that as the entire murder sequence did fwiw

    I definitely think the trajectory of the bullet will come into play in rebuttal. No way does her story line up with the evidence. It was more of an execution style.

    Nurse, maybe you can tell us: if someone were to receive a bullet wound the way Travis did, would they be able to utter complete sentences? I figured he'd have blood gushing out of his mouth.

    absolutely not. (it was thru the frontal lobe)

    (I concur with the ME's testimony.. he wouldn't be able to move let alone speak and attack her and rip at her clothes)


    **I sooooo hope they have a someone with a medical background on the jury... from what katiecoolady is posting from the courtroom one of the jurors was taking a lot of notes during the gun testimony so hopefully someone on the jury also has a lot of knowledge of handguns and knows she couldn't load the gun and fire on the guy at that trajectory the way she was claiming.. utter bunk):twocents::twocents:

    I just hope there is one person on the jury who has had the breath knocked out of them. They will know what she said is not possible. When it happened to me I was down a good while.
    Not sure I am using this thread right, So please let me know if I am not on the right track.

    My hope is that he rebuts more about the pristine shape of the closet and makes more of that if she presses that that is where the fight started and where she got the gun. We all know no struggle took place there. No linebacker hit.
    I played many a football game in my day. All brothers, they don't care if you are a girl. When you take a hit like that, You are down. Especially in that closet. He would have hit her and pushed her into the wall.

    I wonder if some of the things he left open ended was so she could make more of a mess of it on redirect and he could pummel her again.

    grandpa's gun

    I hope we see more about this. ie if they can show she wasnt where she said, with her sister, no reception, etc. (of if MM is involved, this could come out)

    Slam dunk for pre-meditation

    JM referenced Matt so many times during cross it just seems inevitable he will be part of the rebuttal.

    I think we may hear about the hair dying issue. Whether from Darryl, Matt, Car Guy or directly from a Salon. He got her to agree where she got her nails done might have had hair services too. More premeditation.

    Hoping we hear from computer guy that there were no pedophiliac materials found on recovered laptop. Along with detectives who searched his home verifying no pictures of that nature were found. This accusation is the most vile. It needs to be refuted with hard evidence. If Travis was in fact engaging in such deviant behavior, and did not know he was going to be killed on June 4th, his home and or computer would have had evidence of such. Of all the lies this one is the most vicious and hurtful to family, friends and his memory.

    That's what I thought, and I am not in the medical field! I also know hardly anything about guns and know for a fact her story doesn't match the angle of the bullet... And bullets don't lie. So for what it's worth, an average american can figure out that it's a load of bullhockey!

    I know I've seen it mentioned at least once on one of these threads about an interview with one of Travis's sisters. Does anyone know if there is video available? I looked on youtube but couldn't find anything.

    I know this is OT but I can't find the thread for website problems (is it gone??).

    Is anyone else having a lot of trouble with WS lately? It keeps freezing up for me and then I can't get back on for 5-15 minutes. It's very annoying!! And it doesn't seem to always correlate with there being a lot of people on here, it appears random.
