From the onset, his friends suspected and named Jodi Arias as a perpetrator and stated the victim told them she had stalked him and previously slashed his tires. While Travis Alexander referred to Jodi Arias as a stalker, it didn't stop him from sleeping with her. In fact, photographic and video evidence taken from the day of the murder shows the two had sex hours before the murder.
Arias first said she wasn't in Mesa, Arizona at the time of the killing, then after she learned that authorities had proof she was in the house, she said two ninjas broke in and committed the heinous act. She finally stated that she killed Travis in self-defense, as he had put "mortal terror" into her.
After eight days of direct testimony, prosecutor Juan Martinez has grilled Jodi Arias retelling her lies and forcing her to admit to the jury that she had been untruthful from the beginning. On Feb. 27, 2013, he introduced evidence that Jodi Arias premeditated the murder by purchasing gas and gas cans out of state in order to deflect her trial. Her license plates were on her vehicle upside down as well.
Arias's grandparents gun was stolen weeks before the murder and a bullet casing retrieved from the crime scene was of the same caliber as the one stolen from Arias' grandparent's home. The murder weapon nor knife used in the murder have been found.
Arias has also claimed severe memory loss regarding the murder and has repeatedly stated, "I don't know, " or "I don't remember" when asked specific details regarding the murder.
