Statement Analysis: Jodi Arias: Memory Issues

"I can't recall" is the number one verbalized deceptive answer in court, according to many deception detection experts including Dr. Paul Ekman. 
In an open statement, a subject can only tell us what she does recall.  When in an open statement a subject tells us what she cannot recall, the analyst must be on high alert for deception.  Statement Analysis is in bold type. 






Jodi Arias said she grabbed a gun from Alexander’s closet to protect herself, pointing it at him but failing to halt his attack. “He got like a linebacker,” she said.

Jodi Arias, the Arizona woman charged with fatally stabbing her ex-lover 27 times and shooting him in the head in a jealous rage, testified Wednesday that she had no recollection of killing him.
The 32-year-old Arias has spent eight days on the witness stand recounting in precise detail one life event after another — from an abusive childhood to specific kinky sex acts and ex-boyfriends — but when pressed about how she killed Travis Alexander, she drew a blank, noting there was a “huge gap” in her memory from June 4, 2008.
Arias said she remembered getting in a fight with Alexander, possibly shooting at him as they tussled, putting a knife in the dishwasher and disposing of a gun in the desert as she drove from Arizona on her way to see a friend in Utah.
But when asked by her defense lawyer if she remembered stabbing Alexander, she replied:

No evidence yet corroborates Arias’ testimony that Alexander kept a gun. Also, her grandparents reported a .25-caliber gun missing from their Northern California home about a week before the attack, the same caliber used in Alexander’s killing. Arias said she knows nothing about the burglary.

“I have no memory of stabbing him. I remember dropping the knife, and it clinked on the tile. ... And I just remember screaming. I don’t remember anything after that.

A person can only tell us what they do remember.  
1.  No memory of stabbing
2.  Memory of dropping the knife, including sound hitting the tile
3.  "just" is only; screaming, yet she asserted to remember sound of clinking noise
4.  "I don't remember" in a statement here is deceptive.  

Note also the order that she does not remember anything "after that" yet the stabbing came before the dropping of the knife.

Deception Indicated. 
Arias said the fight started after a day of raunchy sex after she accidentally dropped Alexander’s new digital camera while taking racy photos of him in the shower of his Mesa home.
She said the mistake sent Alexander into a rage. He body-slammed her and chased her around the house “like a linebacker,” Arias said.

Jodi Arias is charged in the 2008 stabbing and shooting death of her lover, Travis Alexander. She faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder.

She said she then grabbed a gun from his closet to protect herself.
"I pointed it at him with both of my hands. I thought that would stop him, but he just kept running. He got like a linebacker. He got low and grabbed my waist, and as he was lunging at me, the gun went off. I didn't mean to shoot. I didn't even think I was holding the trigger," she testified, according to ABC News.

Note that he was "running";
Note that he got like a "linebacker"
Note that he "was lunging" and not "he lunged"

Note that "the gun went off" is passive; seeking to conceal responsibility. 
Note that she reports what she did not think
"But he lunged at me, and we fell really hard toward the tile wall, so at this point I didn't even know if he had been shot. I didn't see anything different,” she added.
Note that she reports what she did not know. 
"So he's grabbing at my clothes, and I got up. And he's screaming angry, and after I broke away from him, he said, 'f---ing kill you b----,'" she said.

Note the change of verb tense from past tense to present tense.  This change is noteworthy as it reduces reliability. 
Note how she uses past tense and present tense in the same sentences.

Arias faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder.

Authorities have said Alexander likely didn’t own a gun; there has been no testimony to back up Arias’ account that he kept one in his closet.
Arias’ grandparents reported a .25-caliber handgun stolen from their Northern California house about a week before the killing — the same caliber used to shoot Alexander — but Arias said she knows nothing about the robbery.
Arias also testified Wednesday about why she repeatedly lied about her involvement in the killing. She first told police she knew nothing about Alexander’s death, later blaming it on masked intruders before settling on self-defense.

Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander, whom she said was inclined to be violent. Arias said the fatal encounter began when she accidentally dropped his camera, sending him into a rage. At first, she claimed to have no involvement in his death.

I just have always heard ‘Don’t admit to anything,’” she told jurors in explaining why she denied involvement for so long.

Note the passivity:  she conceals who told her this. 
She also later told jurors how she left Alexander’s home and immediately began planning an alibi, traveling to see a friend in Utah after disposing of the gun in the desert to “throw the scent off for a little while.”
Her attorneys concluded their questioning of her Wednesday afternoon. Prosecutors are set to begin their cross-examination Thursday. She faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder in Alexander’s 2008 killing.
The trial has drawn attention for the explicit details Arias has shared about what she has described as Alexander’s “deviant” urges, which included anal sex and violent outbursts.
During previous testimony, Arias described how Alexander made repeated sexual advances while converting her to the Mormon faith during their initial courtship. She said she didn’t tell him to stop, but the sex made her uncomfortable because she felt it violated the teachings of Mormonism.

Geez this case is taking some twists and turns.

Pistorius Cop Facing Attempted Murder Charges.


Hilton Botha, the leading officer in the Pistorius Murder case, should be dropped from the investigation, say prosecutors.2:07pm UK, Thursday 21 February 2013

Video: Police Brigadier Neville Malila on the charges against officer Hilton Botha

Prosecutors have called for the police officer leading the Oscar Pistorius investigation to be dropped from the case after it emerged he is facing attempted murder charges.

Hilton Botha and two other officers is alleged to have opened fire on seven passengers in a taxi mini-bus in an attempt to stop it. It is claimed that the officers, who were on duty at the time, were drunk.

They were arrested after the event in October 2011 and charges were initially dropped but were reinstated by the state prosecutor in the days before the shooting of Reeva Steenkamp.

Prosecutors have now said that he should no longer be allowed to carry on investigating the case against the Olympian.


Oscar Pistorius arrives at court for the third day of his bail hearing
Speaking outside the court in Pretoria on the third day of Pistorius' baily hearing, Bulewa Makeke, spokeswoman for the National Prosecuting Authority, said: "Is he going to be dropped from the case? I don't know. I think the right thing would be for him to be dropped.

"Obviously there will be consultations between the two (police and prosecutors) to determine what is the best course of action."

The South African Police Service has confirmed the charges against the detective and launched an investigation which may see Botha suspended.

I have not been able to watch this trial. It is bad for my health. Every time this woman opens her mouth I find my anger and blood pressure rising. Has the prosecution not offered one objection or have they let her spew her garbage to her hearts content?

I am afraid that allowing her to testify this long she has been able to form a rapport with the jury as Casey Anthony did and they will vote with their emotions instead of their heads.

dadgum said...

Arias is narrating..with lots of pauses to create the story in present tense.

She 'didn't see anything different' is odd since he was shot in the face.the bullet passed behind his eye (or eyes) and lodged in his cheekbone, yet he saw to chase her and spoke.. then her testimony changes into present tense.

She also said she jumped up and grabbed the gun from a shelf she earlier needed a chair to reach.

Near the end of testimony, she said the man she murdered is 'in a better place..'. That she sent him to. Scary.

Second degree could have her released on a few years.....

Shelley said...

I really am afraid that she will get off. Especially since she would get the death penalty.

The juror seemed to ask the wrong questions a while back showing they doubted she was even involved. Which to me was showing their ignorance. And now, her "I cant remember" bs.

It all comes down to the prosecution. Lets hope they are smart and do their job and bring up the right points. Prove that the guy didnt go off while he was holding her waist (close proximity) and that it was not the first to occur but the last (no blood clotting so likly he body was already dead) due to the physical evidence that wuld be present.

And lets hope they didnt miss critial detils like with Casey and her foxfire searches. Which may have convicted her.

My biggest fear that will lead to a not guilty is that Travis who claims to be "mr mormon" did all these deviant sex acts with her. And that there is well, proof of that. With the taped phone conversations.... That they will be like, well, she told the truth about that... and belive her on the rest. Even tho I belive she taped those calls to add to her future plans to kill him just in case needed. To be able to say... "see, I told the truth". The tie her to a tree and do what he said he wanted to do her being the worst part I think.


The part that amazes me is the gun. No evidence he ever owned a gun.... and the same type was stolen from her grandparents home... But ok.

Lets hope, but I have a very bad feeling this girl will walk free. Just like she said.

Shelley said...

My last comment, 3 section down, I put "guy" but meant "gun"

See correction below.

It all comes down to the prosecution. Lets hope they are smart and do their job and bring up the right points. Prove that the GUN didnt go off while he was holding her waist (close proximity)

Today (2-21-13) at 12:30, Jodi will be cross examined by the prosecutor.

I have not been following this case, but I can'ty wait for this!

HOPING TO SEE THE PROSECUTER GO FOR THE JUGULAR - JUST LIKE SHE DID WHILE MURDERING TRAVIS ALEXANDER.
IT WAS PRE-MEDITATED ALL THE WAY, AND SHE CONVENIENTLY HAS AN ANSWER FOR EVERYTHING - AND HAS CONVENIENT MEMORY LOSS AS WELL.
I HOPE SHE ENJOYS DEATH ROW.
MOST SINCERELY,

It looks like she is about to strangle him in that one picture. Men should be very careful about treating sex like a sport, not only is it wrong, but you never know what kind of a psycho you are going to run into. Women should be careful, too, but, I think, (I hope), they already know this.

shmi said...

With all the stops and starts, the prosecution isn't making any points. Starting to feel like a disaster. He needs to change his tactics.

This case is more like the Spider Savich murderess than the "she who shall not be named" murderess.

Spider was a handsome guy who was killed by his lover who found out that he had other women.

Travis was a handsome guy killed by his lover who found out that he had other women.

Crimes of passion where a person kills their lover, are not like killing your toddler and throwing her in a swamp.

Look on her face during cross, arrogant. Wow, she REALLY thinks she is smarter than everyone. DANGEROUS "woman."

She is the chameleon who acted as if she were game for anything sexually with Travis. She was not "taken advantage of." She used her privates as leverage to get him, to climb the ladder to a "better" life. Look at her room at grandma's house, compare to how Travis lived. She was ULTRA RAGED that she couldn't be Mrs. Travis Alexander.

Liar - Lies and more lies....no end to her lies.

Anonymous said...

Kind of "traumatic!" LOL, when she claims to have seen pedo action! What?

She is a low life liar!

Calling Flores, Flores each time, instead of showing respect by calling him, DETECTIVE Flores as everyone does - she feels disdain for Detective Flores because he saw through her bulls**t.

She deserves the needle, more humane that what she did to Travis.

I like how she is dressed like an innocent school girl for court. I bet she never wore her glasses previously. And her little pig tail on the side.... I hope the jury looks at all the prior pictures - no glasses, dressed much differently, bleached hair, and certainly not a quiet little girl.

Vita said...

I have watched Jodi on the stand. I saw her as it was her side of the story. Her defense atty asking her questions.

She has a memory of a steal trap. She not only offers an exact month, but an exact event. She at times went even deeper and offered an exact moment in her recollection of her past. Past meaning years prior, not of Travis, he was not known. She in her youth. She within her " saids" responding to her Atty on the stand of her past, her life, her travels, her boyfriends. Not once does she ever say, I had a friend who was female. Red Flag. No female friend was ever part of her past. She doesn't like women. Her alike Casey Anthony. They bait other women to climb over them, to get what they want. As they are to them less than. Choosing only women who were established upon their own hard work. Preying upon the females to manipulate the Alpha male " against their target female". Sociopath

JODI - her meek mild librarian look, it was when I was 17 add any age, she is 32 at present.

" it was June, year XX, and week of XX, he was, they were, I was of this event, he, I, they,: emotions they felt, actual saids by each person who was, places with detail. She recalls and names everything except the paint color on the wall.

She to detail and offer as if it were a screenplay by play.

Travis ?
Yes, I killed him.
I don't remember what happened.
She can recall the kitchen sink and everything of, has a perfect well fitting answer for any question, Occasion. Hmmph. Her one word she replaces love with is WARM, Warmth. Was this of her own felt, her adrenaline to rise, that she " did not want" anyone to be close her. She in some sick way protecting them. Her past.

She is robotic, canned, no reverse allowed unfeeling being. I hold myself on a pedestal - psycho yes, yes. She is alike Ted Bundy. Never look back? no it's their past that is their fancy.

They love to relive it. They know though if they offer the jury, the truth, they will no longer have an audience. They then drag it out, and make it as theatrical as they are allowed. * the Shock of the listener/jury* by their own admittance would be " Game over" for Her, as it would have been Bundy.

They the jury have listened and slept through her drivel. They the jury have seen/viewed the barbaric execution upon Travis Alexander (photos). She admitted she killed Travis, and her Atty is claiming self defense.

Self Defense is a practicality isn't it -within this trial. As there is nothing else left, but to be practical. Of Process. She is guilty, she said it herself. I killed him.

Anonymous said...

Vita, I have noticed many others say Jodi Arias reminds them of Ted Bundy, same M.O.

Ted Bundy was a predator, highly skilled Liar. Highly NPD.

Shame TA did not report her for stalking him. Not easy for men to do, I guess. A man should take a crazy, manipulative female stalker seriously! TA realized after a while his friends were correct, there is something extremely off about her, however, she would not let go of him.

Vita said...

Anon who replied to me.
Makes one wonder, of the people she did have " relationships with" her age from 16 on up - prior to Travis. Her days of traveling, roaming.

She spared them? this why she speaks of her past shared with them? it's her testament to them, each individual, as they are more than likely watching. Why her memory is so detailed and intimate.

You are the one who " I let go of" - spared.

They to witness her today and know what she did do. They sitting back 2013, putting the pieces together. Her own admittance to be the glue that they are now gaining closure on. She, who they did not know then, is now much clearer. They these individuals were of her stepping stones, relationships with her, that she was memorable, not in a positive way.

She sending them (in her own way), her long drawn out tales, were her reality or theirs?

Is it for her? on the stand, alike writing them a letter, accounting for each significant moment.

" They" these individuals, were once her plan, yet she moved on from them. Lucky You

You survived me. As she has all but said it herself what she is. She is a parasite. When a bigger better opportunity " host/next vic" came into the picture, she leapt off, moved along.

Travis gave her something that no one else did? what was it? He came to her as unconditional? seems to be her nemesis. It' didn't compute in her head, as it was something she was very foreign to. Parasites do not need nor want " friends".

Friends, ahem, infiltrators do not equate in a parasitic world. This means one has to die, in order for the other to live.

Amaleen6 said...

All that minute detailing of her sexploits with her victim, and claiming she was uncomfortable with it, felt degraded, yadda yadda.....Wouldn't feeling uncomfortable and degraded be stressful and affect her memory? You know, like when she killed him?

i couldn't beleive she mad the statement that she was going to kill herself but she "nicked herself a little bit, and it stung so hurt so bad i couldn't go through with it" but she thought NOTHING of stabbing TA 27 times, so hard one nearly severed his spinal column then cuts his throat ear to ear and whines for sympathy like she deserves ANY... that was nearly as harsh as going to his memorial service and thinking "he forgave her cuz he's in a better place" please AZ PLEASE lock this evil witch up forever til they can give her the needle...

I agree.her arrogance is astounding! She is so caught up in herself, she doesn't even realize how she looks right now.meaning,her attorney allowed lengthy explanations,whereas jm,only allows her to give straight, direct answers. This throws her of because I feel that is her way of shielding herself. Jm doesn't was a full on explanation that detracts from the (obvious) truth. When he stops her from her "story",you get a glimpse of her aggravated thooughts.she doesn't like him being in control at this point. It would seem,in her sarcastic answers,its her way of "trying "to put him in his place. He pulls back,just enough,and then is back at it.this angers her,but she has a show to put on,so she can't "show" her anger.so she in turn arrogantly answers in a vague, and sarcastic manner. This is what, I believe, he (jm)wants. To trip her up,and for her to show her true colors..she is very narcissistic. Which will eventually be her undoing. She obviously sees herself as the "victim",and feels "justified in her actions.she, herself,led Travis to believe his actions,towards sex,and towards her was.."OK".why would she do this,you might ask?.isn't it obvious? ? To "MOLD" herself into what she perceived to be what travvis wanted. She wanted the whole package,marriage, a family,money,and etcetera. In her mind Travis took it all away and she wasn't going to let that happen. So when he realized,their "relationship ",was unhealthy, and not what he wanted at all,he ended it...once and for all. All the "work" Jodi put into this "relationship "was going down the drain. My thoughts are,if Jodi couldn't have Travis,nobody could..that,in my opinion, is why she killed him. The overkill, was her way of letting out her fury,and to "show him" who's boss. She essentially won.the subsequent degradation, is just her way of finishing him off. Essentially she is getting the "last laugh",if you will. She is sick, and twisted. Jm is just laying his foundation, she is putting the nails in her own coffin.

Jodi gets what she can out of someone, but doesn't move on till she has the next in the bag. Travis being her best catch so far. Then HE dare decide it was over, NO! She won't have it. I'm sure she told him, before he died, 'you don't dump me".
But I will give her, she already had the next one in the bag, and was 'dry-humping' him, within hours of killing Travis.
Life goes on for the likes of Jodi Arias. I hope there is not some loser, sitting in the jury box, fantasizing about how it would be with Jodi, and let her go because of it.
She has a new boyfriend outside of jail, just in case, and a girlfriend in jail. Hopefully the girlfriend is a convicted killer.

She fails to show respect for the Judge, for the Detective Flores, imho fails to show respect for everyone in that room. She failed to show respect for herself. I read there a pics of her on the net showing her most private's innards! SICK! Saying she loves her mother, more of her lies. She doesn't appear capable of loving anyone.

Travis woke up to her real nature too late. I can't imagine Jodi as a loving, healthy mother to a child. No way, no how! She is just hollow.

I am against child beating, however, in her case, I change my mind. LOL. I feel for her parents, she seemed incorrigible for the start. Her looks yesterday were enough to scare the bejesus out of anyone. She had the darkest, ghoulish looks! Carrie (from the horror film) move over, Jodi has taken your spot.

WOW, what a moment. This "woman" has NO SHAME. She deserves the death penalty, if was a man, it would be done in a heartbeat. If she is man enough to kill in such brutal fashion, she is man enough for the death sentences. She should never be allow to walk amongst the free. I do believe she would kill again.

On Travis Alexander Blogspot he put up some writings of his book( Chapter 1) titled "Raisiing You". In the intro credit was given to another woman for future editing of the book.. At trial, Jodi speaks how she edited that and wanted Travis to give her credit, she basicLly said that she spoke to him that I don't want to be your friend even if u are embarassed by me, etc etc....
Well, here is Also a part I found in the writings that are Travis' words>>>> But I was scared of bathing because if I once got the bathroom floor wet and my mother accused of me of urinating on the floor and threw me half way through a wall.
Folks, no wonder Travis was so helpless in that shower!!
Jodi got him, in one of his main fears as a child..Travis also would turn his back as his mom would beat him, hence(famous word) the many many knifings to the back..
I think the first 2 knifings were to the head. They were done with such force, she chipped his skull, then he turned and that pic of him with shocked eyes was taken, blow it up and notice the bloody water running downbehind his ear onto his neck... Jodi has mentioned that's her favorite picture of him...
My hope is the trial brings up this insert in his writings...

Peter - anyone who would like to take a stab at this.

Jodi, is verbally with Prosecutor JM about her "Memory Issues," on first day of cross 2/21/13

JM ask, "you have recent problems with your memory?"

JA: "define recent."

JM: "since you started testifying."

JM; "we're talking about your memory problem."

JA: "don't know that I really call it a problem. I just don't remember everything single thing that has every happened to me in my life."

JM: "we are talking about your memory issues."

JA: "I wouldn't call them memory issues, ok, but my memory."

Jodi continues to mince/scramble words and meaning. JM is looking for a direct answer and she dances around the answers in her demon like fashion.

She digs herself into a grave by smirking and restraining laughter - FOR ALL TO SEE - claiming that decimal, tone, content, "sort of" a combination of those factors equate into her losing her memory! WTH!

THEN ULTRA ARROGANCE: with the following: she says she has problems with her memory or loses her memory “Usually when men like you (meaning JM) are screaming at me or grilling me or someone like Travis doing the same."

WOW, just mind blowing how arrogant and how deceptive she is!

Jersey Jane,

Thanks for sharing. I want to read Chapter 1 by Travis when I have the opportunity.

The she devil exploited his kindness and his weaknesses. He worked to make himself a better person. He was too trusting as good people often are. He wanted sex, totally normal and she offered it gladly. Was he really a virgin until he was 29-30?

She seduced him and then in she devil style turns everything around. True Sociopath, never accept responsibility. She takes pleasure in causing pain to others, a monster indeed.

Sadly our tax dollars are being wasted on the long process of her defense. She would kill again, of this I have no doubt.

Wow! She lied her way through the whole interrogation, saying so easily "I didn't hurt Travis, I didn't take him, I didn't take him, I have nothing to do with his death."

She tried to argue and come up with ways out of the solid physical evidence prooving she was at the scene. Wow!

Peter: One thing Arias says regularly is "at this point" or “at that point.” She said it on 48 Hours, she said it when she was being questioned by Det. Flores, and she's saying it at trial. What, if anything, does "at this/that point" mean?

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?


Look at my web blog :: Whogotbarz.net

Wow! It is all in the details! I missed hearing the chair testimony and her needing one to reach the upper part of the closet and the last statement stating that the person she murdered (Travis Alexander) is in a better place! Uuugh! Also the statement about no one should have their life taken reminds me of what Ted Bundy's Mom said. Also she has some of the characteristics, a lot of them like Ted Bundy, grandiose narcissism, stalking, uughh. Scary! First degree and no less, I pray that it is common sense that the jury uses and not over analyzing the truth. The truth stands on it's own.
