One picture seemed to prove that Jodi Arias was guilty for the murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. Viewers were completely enthralled by the details about the case, which are now being revisited in the new Investigation Discovery series Jodi Arias: An American Murder Mystery —
especially because it seems like Jodi could have gotten away with the murder if it wasn’t for one particular picture of her foot standing next to Travis’ body.
In Episode 1, investigators told the story about how they searched the crime scene at Travis’ home — five days after he was brutally murdered — and they found Travis’ new digital camera inside of a washing machine.
“Whoever put that camera in the washing machine put it in there intentionally to destroy the camera,” legal analyst Beth Karas revealed during her interview. “However, the little memory card was not destroyed.”
Detectives were able to recover a set of images from the memory card and they contained images that were taken on June 4, 2008 — the day Travis died. The photos seemed to depict Jodi and Travis lying naked in bed together between 1 and 2 p.m. just hours before his murder, and there were also photos of Travis naked in the shower at around 5 p.m. — but that’s when the photos get gory.
A series of blurry photos were taken either during or after Jodi allegedly attacked Travis, and one of them was clear enough to show the back of Travis’ head with blood streaming across his neck with Jodi’s foot standing right next to his body.
Travis’ roommates discovered his body in the shower of his bathroom on June 9, 2008 — and he was brutally stabbed 27 times, his throat was slit, and he suffered a gunshot wound to the head. Jodi was immediately considered a suspect and she was later found guilty of first-degree murder. She is currently serving a life sentence without possibility of parole.
