27 Stab Wounds: The Jodi Arias Death Penalty Case

The couple in happier times
The couple in happier times

No, it's not Jodi who was killed in a gruesome manner but she murdered her boyfriend of five months, 30-year old Travis Alexander in Arizona. That was not all, Jodi shot him in the face, slit his throat from side to side and stabbed his heart. She made sure he would be dead.

It's not a question about if she did it, she admitted it, but the "why" because Jodi has changed her story five times and now claims it was in self-defense after Travis went into a rage when she dropped his camera.

Oh really?

Maybe the real reason was a jealous woman because Travis was breaking up after meeting another woman. It's very likely this is the reason, jealousy makes one do very odd things especially when coupled with a person who is possessive-just read about John Lennon after he met his first wife, Cynthia. If he caught a guy looking at her with desire, there would be a fight. He would even write a song in 1972 called, "Jealous Guy".

Jodi reminds me of a black widow because the day of murder, the couple had sex together. She even took photos after she killed him, then originally said that the murder was by two intruders. The weird thing is that she tried to destroy the camera after the crime by tossing in the washer. It did not work. Police were able to get the photos mentioned included one that shows Jodi dragging him after she had killed him. How this photo was taken is a mystery but it is certainly a "bad" omen for her.

The state prosecution is asking for the death penalty. Unless the heavens show mercy on Jodi, she is a dead woman walking.
