I got bored with all of this and watched a "Weeds" Showtime marathon instead. Then I flipped the channel and there was Jodi again. She was not as she portrayed herself. She was a waitress, having most recently worked at "The Purple Plum" and "Casa Ramos" plus bar tending at the imaginary "Margaritaville" which was made up by her. Now, Ryan Burns was supposed to be yet another good boy. She told him she was a waitress. Do you think he thought she was wife material? I would imagine it got around in PPL circles that she was an easy target and would suck on anyone's ears who would let her. Skye and Chris described her sucking on TA's ears and necks even when in their home, around their kids. They saw a shift in demeanor with Jodi such that they banned her from their house. That should have been a wake up call to TA.<quoted text>
Contrast this with Travis laying dead in his shower for 4 days and not one soul checked on him. This multi-faceted, caring, compassionate individual who had a STALKER!!! A creepy gal who wouldn't go away. Who TA was afraid of. Who everyone should have been afraid of, it seems.
What went through the minds of the other conference call individual(s)when TA missed the call? What about all the other calls/texts/IMs from his dear friends? Unanswered. Did that fit in with TAs normal behavior? Did it not concern his friends? Hell, dozens of things could have happened to TA. Accidental things. I can't say that any of his buds did a drive-by or a pop-in at the residence. Did any of them call each other and compare notes on TA's whereabouts?
TA even missed some LDS event....still no problem....still no visit.
It seems Mimi waited until pretty much the last hour to follow-up on this Cancun trip. I think she tried to contact him a few times. Did she think he was "ditching" her? I probably would have. I wonder if she was pizzed or concerned when she went to his home.
They sure managed to gather quit a posse together when he was discovered, though. Did any of them throw-up? Seriously.
Oddly, to me, it seems Chris Hughes was in Cancun when he got the info on TA's demise. No phone call with his protege and BFF prior to leaving? You know, plan the itinerary. Banter about TAs casual trip with Mimi?
What did everybody think TA was doing for 4 days?
I would have stuck with the intruders....
Can a jury work on a "hunch"?
I don't think Mimi really wanted to go on the trip and was having second thoughts. She allegedly told TA that if he wanted to take someone else, that would be okay with her. Maybe she was even thinking about not going. I get called to be reminded of groups I attend and called afterward if I don't show up, the same day. My friends get frantic if I don't call them back, so I at least text them if I don't feel like chatting. Did Jodi leave so many messages that TA's inbox was full and no one could voicemail him?
I watched Juan Martinez's closing arguments on You Tube, some of it anyway. The crime scene still doesn't totally make sense, but I had someone, formerly in LE, tell me that unless they looked at the whole house, inside and out, that they couldn't make sense of it without seeing everything. I agree.
I did learn that there are two scenarios set up for Murder 1 and that as long as all 12 vote yes on one scenario or the other, she is guilty of Murder 1. I hope this is the case. They are supposed to start at Murder 1 and if they can't stomach giving her Murder 1, they can go for murder 2. If they get a hung jury, it will be labeled mistrial and she can enter a plea bargain as I don't think the judge would allow another almost 2 million tab to the State of Arizona.
