In Analytical Interviewing, we are careful in asking our questions, as we may teach someone how to lie if we introduce new wording. Here, from Facebook, is the questions the jury had for the D/V expert, which indicate their thinking. Please see the Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/Justice4Travis
We learn what they are thinking from the wording in their questions. These are not the jurors from the Casey Anthony trial.
Do you honestly believe that hitting and kicking your parents is normal behaviour at any age?
You keep saying that Jodi doesn’t match your definition of manipulative. Is it possible that your definition of manipulation differs from others?
You mentioned Travis was in a 7 year relationship with Deanna. Are you aware of anyone interviewing her to determine if she was a victim or survivor? Did you interview her?
Considering only the written conversations and journals can you say you saw an escalation?
If you were to only consider the written conversations and journals, excluding your interview with Jodi, did you see abuse?
Do you believe that Jodi was subjected to sexual degradation at the hands of Travis?
You say Jodi lies started after she killed Travis, how could you possibly know this?
Did you ever see evidence that Jodi was openly sharing all of her most private sexual details with her family and friends? Would you consider that deceptive?
Do you think it is deceptive for someone to not share the most private and intimate details of their lives, like their sexual activities, with their friends and family or do you consider it normal to keep those things private? If normal, why do you think Travis’ attempts to keep those things private was deceptive?
Would you characterise your knowledge of June 4, 2008, as light or incomplete? Are you confused on any of the details of that afternoon?
Don't you believe that Travis making comments about a 12 year old girl while having a phone sex conversation with Jodi is fundamentally different to Travis allegedly masturbating to photos of young boys?
If a couple has an argument that takes all day to end can they still be in a healthy relationship? Would that type of argument indicate abuse?
Is it possible for 2 people to be abusive to each other?
Can you explain what you mean by a burst of anger? Can a 10 or 20 minute rant be described as a burst?
You stated that it’s more common for someone to have a burst of anger, then calm down. Is it possible that Travis' rants seem longer because they are viewed in text form?
You stated that you have chosen not to take cases in the past because you did not believe an individual. Did you take this case, in part, because you believed Jodi? If you did not believe her, would you have chosen to turn it down? If you start out believing an individual, doesn’t that, by default, set up a prejudice?
You mention that stalking could fall under the abuse and battery columns in your continuum. If that is true, why is stalking excluded from those columns? Is your continuum incomplete? Why not list all appropriate bullet points for the appropriate column?
You told us that you like to meet with each individual before analysing the relationship. We have heard Jodi’s side of the story. Can you tell us Travis' side of the story?
Who, from Jodi’s past did you intervieww that were able to rule out Jodi’s manipulative behaviour?
Do you have any evidence other than Jodi's word that Travis made her tear out pages and write only positive thoughts?
You testified why things could’ve supported her statements however, is it possible the incidents of abuse reported by Jodi were reported after the fact as a secondary gain to benefit her?
Can you explain how Jodi can remember physical abuse incidents so vividly but does not write anything, not even a reference to her feelings, in the journal?
You seem to believe that when the argument began bet. Jodi and Travis prior to the Havasupai trip that he called her upstairs to pursue an argument. How do you know he didn’t want to get the issue resolved and calm her and that he was embarrassed in front of the Freemans?
Regarding the text msg from Travis to Jodi where he is upset about her BS story from Michelle or Elaina, what exactly was the BS story that Jodi told Travis? Where did you get this info? You stated that Travis was lying in this message, how do you know this for sure? How can you know that Jodi's B.S. story was not a lie? [Not the subject but the actual story that was told.]
Speaking of blackmail and being threatened, are you aware if Jodi threatened Travis by saying she would let out that he was a paedophile? Does that mean anything to you.
Is there a type of stalking that a person is comfortable around someone in person but are afraid of them or what they are capable of when they are not around?
What is the manifesto you referred to during your testimony?
Of the times you have testified in other cases, how many of these were in def. of men?
In all the evidence you reviewed, was there any indication anywhere of Travis claiming stalking by anyone else other than Jodi.
Did Travis discuss abuse of Jodi or any other women in his journal entries?
Do you handle cases where the female is the abuser?
How can you say that Jodi and Travis' relationship was abusive with no proof other than what’s on paper and Jodi's word?
Do you consider someone that says "no jury will ever convict me" to be a person with low self esteem?
When interviewing Jodi you claimed you did not asking leading questions. If someone asks a question that elicits a simple y/n response, would you consider that a leading question?
You said other sources said Jodi was not manipulative, who are these sources?
How do you know tone, inside jokes etc if you cannot get both sides?
Regarding non verbal communication, do you think that you can read through a string of text messages, emails etc between two people and know exactly what the non-verbal communication is?
Would your analysis of this relationship change if, hypothetically speaking, you found out the stories of Travis being violent and masturbating to children were made up?
Other than what Jodi has told you, in what other sources did you see evidence of physical violence by Travis?
Would you have adjusted your belief in the level of abuse if you had been given access to everything except the interviews with Jodi?
If you had been given access to everything except interviews with Jodi how would your opinion have varied, if at all?
How many men have you testified for in criminal court?
How do you know Jodi received spider man underwear from Travis on Valentines day? Did you see them? Pictures? Or anything else?
Have you given her anything else? Have you ever had any physical contact with her? Hugs, friendly touching etc?
You bought Miss Arias books, apologized when meeting her and bought her a magazine subscription. Did you do anything else to establish a relationship with Miss Arias?
Jodi went through Travis' emails, messages and inbox. Did you take any of that into consideration when making your assessment?
When Jodi went to confront Bianca, can't that be seen that she did it because she was jealous?
On the one side, we have demeaning multiple verbal slurs, a slap, a shove, a chokehold and a lunge perpetrated on Jodi. On the other, we have a gunshot to the head, a 4” deep slit throat and close to 30 stab wounds delivered by Jodi to Travis. Is not the perpetrator of the greatest domestic violence Jodi?
Answer : No
Please explain why you feel Jodi is not manipulative either before or after the killing based on the review of statements and interviews.
