Arias is much worse of a person than some thought. "Some" being myself included. Arias instructed her minion to create a letter to make Travis Alexander look like a monster. The letter will not be posted here because it is filled with inflammatory lies. Note, I did not attach "allegedly" to the fact the letter was initiated by Jodi. It was such a horrible act that she did not even deserve the benefit of the word "allegedly." Arias insults the true victims of child sexual abuse by making her false claims in order to serve her selfish desire to make Travis "pay" even more. For every false claim made, it reduces the chances a true victim will be believed. In her need for self-gratification, Arias has shown her true colors. Escaping responsibility for her actions was the only thing which mattered to her, and she would stoop to any level to do it.
Arias and her supporters seem to not understand that there is a huge difference between "possible" and "probable." There isn't much that isn't possible in this life; just because "possible" exists, doesn't make it fact. For example, it's "possible" that George Barwood, Sandra Webber, Rob Roman, and myself could be the same person using multiple profiles. Is it probable? No. It's possible that the person posting comments as Richard Speights after a 7-month absence is really another Jodi loving blogger who was attempting to bait me. Is it probable? It's a hell of a lot more probable than the chances the letter was written by Travis Alexander.
Because not many things fall within the realm of the impossible, guilt is decided upon the definition of what is reasonable. Hence, determination of guilt is " beyond a reasonable doubt." The same standards need to be used when determining the validity of the letter. Just because "Jodi says so" doesn't make it a fact. Jodi said she wasn't there when Travis was killed. Jodi said it was intruders who did it. Jodi said after she pulled out of Salinas, she only had two gas cans on her trip. All those things Jodi said proved to be false. Jodi was dishonest and a liar long before she ever murdered Travis Alexander, and the admission came right out of her fingertips during the G-Chat and in the pages of her journal.
The letter Jodi instructed to be created can be determined to be false for a number of factors. First, the date does not fit the timeline. In her blatant lie, she implied she was shocked to the point of vomiting when she walked in on what she claimed to have seen. She claimed the date was January 21st, 2008. The letter is dated January 21, 2007. Jodi's minion either made a mistake or Jodi instructed it to use the date of 07, forgot, and later changed her story to a version she thought might work better. The question is, why the hell would someone confessing to such a thing even date the letter? It would be as if they were trying to make an "official" record to be used against them at a later time by someone they could not trust. The perpetrator would not; a person trying to frame another for a bad act would.
Secondly, why would someone who wasn't sure if they could trust a person tell them they were guilty of the felony act of sexual abuse against a child? Travis knew Jodi was a liar; she lied to him several times, and she continued to lie to him. Jodi stated that Travis had a hard time trusting her and wrote about it in her journal. The letter Jodi instructed to be written implied a lack of trust as well:
If Travis could not trust Jodi, why the hell would he had volunteered the information something far worse than what she claimed she saw happened? If he were a pedophile, he wouldn't. It's not in the realm of reason. The nature of a pedophile is to protect their secret at all costs. They do not volunteer information, especially that which could end them up in jail, unless they are backed in a corner and have no way out. Per the lie Jodi told, she only caught him with a picture.
If we are to believe Jodi's story that the letter was real, which no one with common sense would, Travis would have had to be a complete fool. He would have had to be thinking "I know you don't know, you've given me countless examples not to trust you, but let me tell you my deepest darkest secret anyways. I did more than what you saw." And, if Travis was such a fool, how the hell could he have hidden the abuse Jodi claimed? It's not in the realm of reason. As JJ would say "If it doesn't make sense to your common sense, it's usually not true."
The third reason the letter can be determined to be complete bullshit is the fact the letter was written in the first place and ended up with Jodi. Per Jodi's elaborate tale, Travis did not come into contact with her until later that night, and he explained everything in person. So how did Jodi get the letter then? Why would he risk giving it to her if they were face to face and he could tell her what he needed to explain without the risk of creating a permanent record? Given the content, why would he have left the letter on Jodi's door step where anyone could have read it? Jodi had been bold enough to invade his privacy in the past; it meant the same thing might have happened with the roommate's invading Jodi's privacy. Writing the letter just does not make sense when Jodi was minutes away; it's most likely why she instructed her minion to date it 2007 in the first place. If the letter were permitted into evidence, the date would have come into question. Jodi would have only lied and claimed Travis made a mistake on the date.
The fifth reason the letter should not be believed is that it did not even match the lies Jodi told. Jodi implied that Travis never touched a child; to prevent it from happening he made a 'deal' with her not to stay the night at anyone's house who had children. The letter claimed he did hurt a child. The letter also implied that Travis had "toys" which Jodi never saw, and he got rid of them. However, in her lies on the stand, Jodi claimed she saw the toys one day, and they used them for sex.
The fourth reason the letter can be determined to be the act of a hateful woman are the obvious signs of forgery. It was a cut and paste document created by multiple sources.
"Frustrations" is a combination of multiple words, the "T" coming form a darker source.
The word "THE" is smaller because it was cut from an entry in which Travis was writing smaller.
The word "THE" is smaller because it was cut from an entry in which Travis was writing smaller.
For the most part, the period placement does not appear to match Travis' usual habit of writing. Travis placed his period almost immediately after the last word. There was the occasional floating period, but for the most part it appeared almost immediately after. One would have to use multiple documents to account for the amount of times it occurred in Jodi's fake letter.
Jodi had Travis' journal and instructed her minion to use it to create the letters. Shortly before Jodi left Mesa, Travis' journal came up missing. He eventually believed Jodi took it. Jodi knew things about his personal life and time with Lisa Andrews that she should not have. Jodi lied and stated it was a Michelle K who told her, but Travis saw right through her lie. The day after he called Jodi out for lying, he wrote in his journal a passage which indicated he was suspicious Jodi stole his old one.
"I wouldn't be surprised if my journal were stolen and most my time with Lisa was in there."
During the G-Chat fight, Travis finally confronted Jodi about his belief she took his journal. The fact she knew things about his time with Lisa validated his suspicions. Of course Jodi denied it; she was a liar. Jodi had his journal and instructed her minion to use pages from it to create the letters to help her escape responsibility and justice for her crime.
Jodi used his journal just like I used the copy of the family letter to create the following Jodi "confession" note. Now, just imagine what I could have done if I had an original copy that was not smudged up.......
Should my copy of a "confession" letter be believed? I guess her supporters would say "no." But why not? It's in her writing, after all.......
Travis' written words from other sources were rearranged in order to give them a different meaning. Mike LeBlanc has demonstrated how simple it is to rearrange something someone has written in order to change the context:
Jodi's original statement in a letter to Ryan:
Changing the context of it:
The fifth reason Jodi's letter should not be believed is the same reason my copy of Jodi's 'confession' should not be believed: It is only a copy. If the letter was real, why the hell would Jodi make a copy, keep it, and allow the originals to be destroyed? And, it wasn't just one original destroyed, Jodi claimed all her original letters were destroyed. It's an unreasonable statement to believe. If the letter were real, keeping the original could have meant the difference between life and death for Jodi; Or, at least had granted her freedom one day. The fact that Jodi was not even willing to state who she got the letter from is a big clue that they were not real. If the letters were real, telling the court who gave them to her could only have helped her. If the letters were fake, telling the court could have ended up landing her co-conspirator in jail.
Each time I look at the fake letter, another sign it was a forgery pops out at me. The last was the placement of the periods. The fake letter has them placed too far apart. Travis rarely did that. In order to provide as many examples as is shown in the letter, multiple different samples of his writings would have to be used.
The sixth reason the Jodi's letter can be determined to be fake: The spacing in between the words is not indicative of Travis' writing. Apparently, as noted in his writing, Travis did not believe in placing a sufficient space between his words; sometimes it appeared as if he was writing one long word which should have been four or five.
The space between words in Jodi's fake letter appear to be further apart than Travis' habit of writing. Sometimes he placed larger spaces. However, usually his words were crowded together:
A blow up of the letter really shows the difference when compared with a sample of Travis' writing.
Jodi's supporters will always choose to believe what they want to believe no matter how much it goes against common sense. When they use the obvious fake letters to label Travis a pedophile, they are just as guilty as she is in causing damage in the fight against child sexual abuse. With every false claim presented, it increases doubt when the real ones come out. No child should ever have to go through facing doubt when they come out, but it happens because of people like Jodi making her false claims. Whoever helped her make those letters should take a look at themselves and realize what their actions say: "The real victims don't matter as long as the lie can help Jodi out."
