    I also heard that Martinez gets another shot at her. Is that true?

    The last I heard, he does not, and that it was the judge's call. Honestly, what's the point? She'll just tell more lies and not remember anything important. He might call some rebuttal witnesses, and I'm sure he'll drive it all home in his closing argument.

    From reading blogs and other forums, there are some who truly believe that Travis was a pedophile. There is no evidence to support this.

    ^ Really? I haven't seen that, and I've been reading quite a bit on this case too. I know there's a "jodi is innocent" blog but I don't take that crap seriously because it's the same people who had the "casey is innocent" website and maybe the "scott peterson is innocent" site too. I agree there is no evidence whatsoever of pedophilia, so I can't imagine what would convince anyone otherwise.

    The guy might have had issues that weren't consistent with the "mormon face" he put out to his friends, but that's about it. I admit when I first started with this case, I really thought he played Jodi, and I still kinda do, but the guy had NO clue who and what he was dealing with. She's the one who lied, by making him think that their casual sexual relationship was ok with her. He should have known better, but I think he was very naive for a 30-year old man, and certainly no match for someone as devious as her.

    I think the idea comes from the phone sex conversation, and the comment he made about Jodi sounding like a twelve- year old. Phone sex, dressing up and role playing, it's all fantasy. But to take that and spin it to make Travis look like an abuser is wrong. I don't feel he was perfect. But he was murdered and justice needs to be served.

    Geez, I can see where some might find that comment inappropriate but it's still a stretch. Maybe he said that because Jodi was talking in that sing-song little girl voice. She sounded sooo different on that tape than she does in the courtroom. Having a "schoolgirl" fantasy is also a far cry from wanting to molest little boys. I'm not an expert by a longshot but I always thought that pedophiles had a gender preference. Not both boys and girls.

    Of course Jodi does nothing but lie, but she did say one thing that made me wonder, and that was a comment about Travis possibly being molested as a child. From what I've read, he had a really bad childhood before his grandmother took him (and siblings) in. He wrote about it in his blog...his mom being a meth head, verbal and physical abuse--he doesn't mention sexual abuse but it's certainly plausible in that situation. Maybe he confided something to Jodi and she spun it into her tale. Who knows.

    Also in his blog, the last entry was a few weeks before his murder, about his quest for a wife. I know some people think this Cancun trip was Jodi's last straw and it might have been, but this entry had to hit her hard. He basically announced to the world what he wanted in a partner, and she wasn't it. Pretty chilling that he said "Desperately trying to find out if my date has an axe murderer penned up inside of her"...

    I don't remember if his blog was posted here before, but it's kinda interesting. And sad.

    Maybe, maybe not. The thing about the Spiderman underwear, it seemed more like a joke.

    The jury asked her why he wanted her to wear Spiderman underwear when he said earlier in one of the phone calls that he hated Spiderman.

    She then said something like the underwear reminded him of a child he was close to who liked Spiderman. Basically, throwing in another unsupported pedo accusation as backup for her original uncorroborated pedo accusation. Amazing.

    ^I see. When I first started following the trial, I thought the underwear gift was ironic, making a joke about something he didn't like. Why keep pushing the pedophilia story if there is no evidence to support it and no witnesses or accounts to corroborate her claims? Grasping at straws to save her own skin.

    I thought the Spidey underwear gift was based on something from the Charlie's Angels movie?
    Watching her add exrta lies on top of her old lies yesterday was so shocking to me. I could see her making stuff up on the spot.

    She is trying so hard to come up with the right answers.

    ^ Yep, Cameron Diaz dancing in the spiderman underwear. It was supposedly in a Valentine's gift package he sent her. Of course no one brought that up in trial, but I've seen online speculation. And it makes more sense than what Jodi said it meant.

    I only heard it from Nancy Grace or someone. If the PA meeentioned it I missed it. Maybe a juror will ask?

    "if you find me guilty, it's because of my bad choices'. I know her lawyer wanted to throw up his hands and run.


    Death is too good for her. She gets off on manipulation. She should spend the rest of her days in a concrete cell with no human contact, not even that one hour 'yard time'.

    I wish one of the jury questions was whether she was on Thorazine or some other anti-psychotic medication.
