    I believe Jodi Arias was assisted by her father, His Gun was stolen, so he had to be on high alert, Jodi was the thief, or he himself. Jodi might of confided in her father, and he insisted on helping her, to ensure she wasn't over powered. Jodi said he could lift 500 lbs. In one photo of travis, he's posing, but his eyes are distressed, he's nude, and seems to be holding up 2 fingers, possibly a last ditch effort to assist in the investigation of the murder he knew was coming, this was not a normal pose, his eyes are distressed, The car rental dude said Jodi had a guy with her. Additionally, Jodi said a man and a woman Ninja committed the crime, she might of felt crime scene evidence or eyewitnesses reports might of shown a man and a woman were at the scene.

    my only question is...was it normal for Mr. Alexander to keep knives in his bedroom closet or where did the knife actually come from???

    and the time of the killing..ha..she wanted to have her usual sex play with him before she did the dirty deed......and that photo of him in the shower [just his face] is terrifying..his eyes look like he was in emotional pain..and the rope and knife..another story..she used that one to say Travis had brought a knife upstairs to cut the rope and she grabbed in in her fantasy self defense..that was HER knife she brought for the kill..and gun she stole from her grandfather..and personally I don't think the prosecutor was too hard at all..did u hear her answers to him??..she has the ego of a super star..

    I cannot for the life of me comprehend what ANYONE that has seen the pictures of the the crime scene and his autopsy photos when even begin to think that the Prosecutor went to far... In my opinion he was too easy on her. No only did she slaughter him she was evading police, altered the crime scene, tried to destroy Travis' character, but she gave two other stories before the one that is playing out at trial that make zero sense. For shame, for shame!!!!

    I agree with Beth. The look on his face was not one of a happy person. While watching today the crying looked fake. She was able to talk clearly and around her eyes didnt turn the least bit red. I hope the jury can see thru the lies and give Travis and his family justice.

    If Jodi had murder on her mind intentionally she could have killed him after he went to sleep early in the morning.Furthermore how,if she is such a liar, can one believe her if she says she killed him? Maybe someone else did it and she is afraid to tell?

      I'm not sure how much of this trial you have actually seen...Because even the premeditation has been proven to me...With the gas cans, no cell phone use, NO purchases at all in AZ. She definitely wanted no one to know she was there at all.

      Bull Carp That chick is a cold hearted killer. Why didn't she kill him while he was sleeping? Cause she wanted him to suffer.She wanted him to bleed,so he would feel her pain. She got great joy in killing him, now she needs to pay for the pain she caused Travis. She did it, she admitted to it, she admitted to it all on the stand. Even what she couldn't "

    Why is everyone saying that Jodi Arias "broke down", while testifying.
    To me, she is faking. Completely.......

      I am shocked that all the commentators say she "broke down" and was "sobbing". I watched one re-run after another and I never saw a tear. She kept dabbing at her nose, but I didn't see one tear around her eyes. These "breakdowns" are for two reasons - to get the sympathy of the jury and to buy some more time to concoct her responses to the prosecutor. She's a self-centered actress, but a bad one.

      Travis wasn't taking her to Cancun with him and she was enraged by that. His punishment for that was a brutal death.

    Because I work, I have missed most of the trial, at least on the defense side. I am not saying she is innocent but when I see those photos of the closet I see a very strict OCD behaviour. Definitely not an expert, but I would worry if it wasn't mentioned on at least the defense side.

      OK, I am not saying in any way that Travis deserved to die; however, I am saying that, again, another woman is exploited for her body, abused mentally, probably told she is not good enough marriage material and has been pushed to her absolute limit and flipped-out. Not everyone has the same tolerance level and Jodi was definitely addicted to Travis and he to her, sexually. I think temporary insanity should have been her defense. How many women have found themselves in the same situation? Alot, but most don't react the way Jodi did; they just feel like it.

        ...hence the reason she's completely guilty. We all get mad at people, but only a few of us go kill them.

      OCD for sure and the prosecutor has gone way too far. He is acting like the animal he is trying to prove that she is in my eyes.

      OCD..?..no, don't think so..more like a guy who came from nothing and was proud of what he accomplished..and had his closet just the way he wanted it..alot of ppl dream to have a nice closet..

    Midi arias doesn't want to look at the horrible pictures of Travis but what about HIS mother and family!

    The last photo of Travis Alexander looks like he was shocked and scared by his killer while he was in the shower. The look on his face is chilling. It looks like someone has a gun aimed at him. This disputes Arias' whole false testimony about her time with her victim. She stalked and killed him. This photo is evidence of his fear!
