A woman who used to work with Jodi Arias while she lived in Palm Desert spoke out about Jodi Arias on Jane Valez Mitchell this afternoon. Former co-worker "Veronica" (didn't want to give her last name) spoke to JVM today and provided interesting insight into the Jodi Arias she knew and worked with.
She described Jodi as being "absolutely obsessed" with Travis Alexander - leaving multiple messages for him, and even driving to Arizona after getting off work to see him. When asked about her observations about Arias, Veronica said "all that's missing was a rabbit in a pot on the stove" - referencing the "Fatal Attraction" movie starring Glen Close.
She said that Arias was determined to get Travis Alexander and have a family with him. When asked about her courtroom persona she said that Jodi always had a "flat affect" - she could get into trouble at work and have absolutely no reaction. Sound familiar? JVM asked her if she believed Arias was bothered that Alexander was going to take another woman to Cancun, she said "oh yes, that threw her into a tizzy". Veronica was never contacted by the prosecution and isn't involved in the trial or case, but she did comment that she absolutely believes Arias was capable of the premeditated murder of Travis Alexander. She was that obsessed.
Naturally this is one person's observation and not proof of anything. I believe HLN does their homework before they allow somebody to come on their show, so chances are "Veronica" did in fact work with Arias and she seemed to have a strong opinion based on the things she heard and saw working with Jodi Arias. Interesting.
More observations were made today as Arias seemed to change her commentary around Travis to glowing words of love. She was defending him in many cases, and it has been suggested that the defense team has a copy of their expert witnesses reports on Arias and are now tweeking her testimony to better match that of a battered woman. Trial resume tomorrow morning.
