Who’s Visiting Jodi Arias?

Image

 

Yes, people other than her lawyers are actually going to see her! On the excellent website ‘Justice For Travis’ (link below) they have posted a log of the people who have been visiting Jodi in jail. I never cut and paste from another site, that’s like stealing, but I will entice you to go there with some interesting tidbits:

1. There are more ‘friends’ visiting than official people or family members. I wonder if any of these ‘friends’ will stand up for her in court.

2. Most of the ‘friends’ visiting are male. This is creepy…are they expecting to have a relationship with this psycho? I mean we saw how her last one turned out!

3. The log goes from May to October and in October no family members visited. Are they distancing themselves or is this a ploy to prove she has zero support from her family for the upcoming trial? You know, like she said last time.

4. An investigator visited in August and September. Wonder what he/she is up to?

5. Wilmott seems to have taken the lead as she visits more often than Nurmi who did not visit at all in June, July, August, September or October.

6. There are more Doctors visiting-Wilmott brought in 3, one who testified in the trial and is a friend of Alyce LaViolette. Here we go again…

If you go to the link please scroll down to January 31 post. Also read the comments- some very smart people on there. Also you may want to know that posting a list or her visitors is not a problem as it is all public records- thank you Maria K. for getting this info!

Sochi Problems

ImageWater at one Sochi hotel. Stacy St. Clair tweeted that they told her not to use the water on her face as it contained something very dangerous. She said she then used Evian to wash her face and felt like a Kardashian.

 

I have always thought it would be amazing to actually attend the Winter Olympics. After reading some tweets at: #SochiProblems I am glad I can’t make it this time. Many are finding some very disturbing things, like missing floors, bad water (so bad they tell you it cannot be used on your face or body) and unfinished hotels (CNN booked 11 rooms and when they got there only 1 was ready). Construction seems to have been rushed, resulting in one 58 year old woman losing her home as construction fell on it. I have seen pictures of missing floors, unfinished venues and open manholes (watch your step!) For me the most disturbing thing is they are rounding up stray dogs and killing them. Apparently strays are common in Russia and fed by many, but they are concerned about the impression they might make so they have to go. A serious issue for some of the athletes is some of the jumps are too steep, resulting in one pro-snowboarder breaking his collarbone in practice. USA boarder Shaun White has shown concern and a European snowboarder has decided to skip these Olympics. The terrorist threat is also an issue, although it is at every Olympic event, however with the incompetence so far I am worried for all attending. Following are a couple of articles, and if you want more go to Twitter: #SochiProblems

Blade Runner Trial Coming

Image

 

Here is one trial I have really been looking forward to: Oscar Pistorius for the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.  This guy has a history of being violent and shot his girlfriend through the bathroom door in the middle of the night. He thought she was a burglar! Really? How many burglars use the bathroom? Why didn’t he just reach over to see if she was still in the bed with him? He couldn’t yell through the bathroom door: “Honey are you in there?” before shooting multiple times? And he lives in a gated community where I have heard his house is like a fortress. Also witnesses heard a woman scream before the gunshots! Finally Pistorius claimed that he did not have time to put on his ‘blades’ before shooting but the cops think he did based on the trajectory of the bullets. He had plenty of time to see if she was in the bed and he had to reach under the bed to get the gun. Here is a photo of the beautiful 29 year old Reeva Steenkamp:

I think they fought and he thought she was going to dump him! The trial will be televised and begins March 3rd.

Amanda Knox Guilty…Again

Image

 

So the verdict came down in Italy today and Knox has been found guilty. Remember she was guilty for the murder of her roommate then not guilty and now she is guilty again! Her response? “They’ll have to pull me back kicking and screaming to prison.” Another source says she is frightened and saddened by the conviction. I do not know enough about this case to give my opinion- any one out there want to give me theirs?

Arias Trial Date Set

We finally have a date for the retrial of the penalty phase in the Jodi Arias murder trial. Judge Stephens set the retrial for March 17th, but expect at least two weeks for jury selection. There will be no live streaming or media of any kind (including live tweets) so I will post updates as I get them. I have a link below -you may want to watch the video, the gentleman claims this was never a death penalty case I beg to differ!

Arias’ Cellmate Tweets The Truth!

Image

Wow…just wow! I have been reading the tweets from Jodi’s former cellmate and it’s very interesting. Here’s some of the goo stuff (and the link below for more!)

1. She catches Jodi in lies – about her brother running her facebook accounts.

2. Jodi apparently admitted her own Twitter account is a lie.

3. Casandra (the cellmate) says she “…will continue to speak the truth and expose my former cellmate Jodi Arias for the dangerous person she is today!”

4. Implies Jodi admitted lying to Troy Hayden (FOX news).

5. Made threats regarding the prosecutor- Juan Martinez.

6. Asks her if she is “…in a fog again?”

7. Says “I NEVER (1) time ever witnessed Jodi Arias cry…and I lived with her for 37 days!” (No surprise there).

8. Apparently Casandra and Jodi got into a Twitter war but Jodi has since deleted all her responses. I’m pretty sure they are still out there somewhere. And that the prosecution will use them. (Oh- I just figured out that if you press the little “View Conversation” on the comments by Casandra in the link below you can still see some of Jodi’s comments!)

9. Casandra says: “Jodi has no moral compass.” (Knew that too).

10. Says Jodi demonstrated no remorse and bragged openly that she murdered Travis Alexander.

Arias Trial in February?

Image

 

Things are getting interesting as the trial nears. The best info out there tends to be on the Justice for Travis facebook page (I have the link below). I do not think it is right to copy entire articles as that robs the original authors so please check out the link (I will give you just a hint of the stuff that’s going on).

1. Jodi is selling wrist bands. She should be selling Ginsu Knives.

2. She also got into a Twitter Debate with her ex-cell mate (there is a link on the site below). Then she deleted her tweets…but the prosecutor can still find them! Her celly had claimed she wanted Juan Martinez killed.

3. Jodi is now featured on the series “Snapped’ – Oxygen channel. Though I am pretty sure this was not a case of snapping…when you travel from North California to Arizona with a gun and a knife that’s not snapping in my book.

4. Steven Alexander wrote to the site below (you will need to scroll down a ways) and mentioned the trial is due to start mid- February and that the family wants to see justice done. 

We certainly have waited long enough for it.

Arias Update

Image

Judge Stephens finally made some rulings- all of which I am unhappy with. She has eliminated live feeds which I used to base all my summaries on during the trial. She also said no to twitter during the trial so I can’t update that way either. The good news- she can’t fire Nurmi and the trial will stay in Phoenix. She has still not ruled on the re-trial of the penalty phase date. I’m guessing next year some time, if it even happens. Here’s a a link to the article: http://www.azcentral.com/community/mesa/free/20131115judge-bans-live-tv-coverage-jodi-arias-retrial.html

Arias Fires Nurmi?

Image

 

Apparently last week Jodi wrote a letter to the judge about her desire to get rid of her defense counsel, Kirk Nurmi. She notes that she has not spoken to him since late May and that he has an “utter poverty of people skills.” Because of this letter nothing else has been settled in the case, including when they will get on with it.
