If you take the time to read Travis Alexander's blog where he put some excerpts from his book, "Raising You" you will read that Travis learned (before age 10 when he ran away from home) that if he turned his back, beatings didn't hurt as much when the blows landed on his back and shoulders.

That's kind of creepy to know because that is what he apparently did when Arias attacked him with a knife. He just instinctively turned his back to her, but she was more talented than his mother at inflicting pain. She was not trying to just inflict pain. She had murder on her mind. She wanted to eradicate him.

He also stated his one phobia was roaches which also came from his childhood upbringing.

One question. Why did his grandparents wait until he was 10 to intervene? I guess they did not know that the first SIX years of a child's life are the most important.

Has anyone read his blog or excerpts from his book he planned to publish titled "Raising You"?

His family should publish it after the trial with an afterword about what happened. Sad.
