The Missing Bathroom Photographs & Missing Memory Card

in Latest News by

Before I get started with today’s post, I’d like to clarify one specific point which crops up in the comments from time to time.

Basically, in a retrial, new evidence can be introduced. It’s just like the first trial never happened. New evidence, new attorneys, new jury, new witnesses, new strategies, new everything can be used in a remanded case for retrial.

One of the very reasons a case can be overturned and remanded for new trial is new evidence.

For further specific clarification, click here to visit Legalmatch.com and read the section titled: “What is the Difference Between a Retrial and an Appeal?” It explains precisely and concisely what a retrial allows.

Following on from that, here’s an updated version of an early 2016 post — featuring 2 conflicting testimonies, the mysterious missing memory card evidence, and the equally mysterious missing photographs of someone “on the floor of the bathroom bleeding profusely” which Flores directly referenced in his report – even though nobody has ever seen them since.

Here goes…

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Check out this picture of the camera found in the washing machine. This was taken before the “official” crime scene pics & numbered evidence markers were added.

Note that the memory card is actually IN the camera, next to the battery, (indicated by the arrow):

camera-pic

And here’s the official crime scene photograph of the camera in the washing machine, from a different angle:

camera-pic 2

How cool is that? First you take an in-situ picture of how the evidence was originally found (i.e. the pic above with the arrow)… then you rearrange it a bit… make it look how you want it to look… then add the numbered evidence markers and take the “official” photograph.

Here’s where it gets even more interesting.

Heather Connor testified that the memory card was found separate to the camera at the bottom of the washing machine. Based solely on the photographs alone, that’s simply not the case. The memory card is clearly visible in the camera in the first photograph.

Watch the clip of Heather Connor’s testimony (below) where she clearly states: “There was a memory card inside the washing machine that was also collected”:

Forward the video to the 1:33:20 mark and you’ll also see a picture of item #37, where Heather Connor states – “That is the memory card that was originally in the washing machine and then was collected as item #37.”

Moving on…

When Detective Melendez testified, he stated that the memory card was already IN the camera when he received it, and therefore it could have been protected from water. That ties in with the picture at the very top of this page – but it directly contradicts Heather Connor’s testimony.

Watch the clip (below) to see that part of the Melendez’ testimony:

Now, if (as Heather Connor testified) there was a card found & collected separate to the card found in the camera which Melendez received… that would mean there were actually 2 cards found in the washing machine that day… although only the 1 card ever gets mentioned and/or brought into trial, namely Exhibit #215 as referenced in both video clips above — which is the blue SD card where all the “deleted images” were supposedly extracted from.

Here’s a photograph of the actual SD card produced during the Melendez testimony:

Sony Duo SD memory card Exhibit 215

Now, I’m not saying either witness was lying per se. They were just testifying as to what they saw and/or received.

Heather Connor stated she found the SD card (or “a” SD card) loose in the bottom of the washing machine drum… and when Melendez got the camera from the washing machine, he stated the SD card (or “a” SD card) was already in the camera.

So if they are both telling the truth, that means there were 2 SD cards… which subsequently raises the questions — [1] what happened to the OTHER card, and (more importantly) [2] what exactly was on it?

Here’s what I think happened:

Someone at some point (most probably Flores) viewed images from both cards that were found in the washing machine. After that, selected images were put together (and date/time stamps ADDED), all prior to the camera being handed over to Melendez.

As far as I recall, back in 2008, the camera wasn’t technically able to add time & date stamps to the photographs, therefore any date/time stamps were added after the event. How convenient.

So what about the “missing” photographs?

By “missing” photographs I mean the ones that Flores saw (on one of the memory cards) but deliberately withheld from evidence — for reasons I’ll cover shortly.

Here’s an excerpt from Flores’ Probable Cause Report (from 2008):

Flores quote mesa police probable cause report 2008

Here’s what it says:

On 6-19-08 I received the images located on the memory card found in Travis’ digital camera. The digital card had several pictures on it including some, which had been deleted. The deleted pictures were of Travis naked in the shower, just before his death. The first one was time stamped on 6-04-08 at 1722 hours. There were several pictures of Travis as he was clearly posing for the camera. The last picture taken of Travis alive was at 1730 hours. Some of the following pictures were of a subject on the floor of the bathroom bleeding profusely.”

Did anyone see any photographs of anyone on the floor of the bathroom bleeding profusely?

No we didn’t… and nor did anyone else.

Gloria Esteban - Jodi Arias is Innocent -com

Setting aside the fact that Flores is a lying POS at the best of times — (which is why he got demoted immediately after the trial) — he saw those bathroom pics, even though he couldn’t (for whatever reason) identify whoever was “bleeding profusely” on the bathroom floor. What’s more, he even made direct reference to the photographs in his Report. Therefore, the pics exist – or at least they did exist until Martinez got himself involved and had Flores lose them.

This is the way Martinez rolls apparently — and this is certainly not the first time that trial evidence has gone AWOL under his watch.

So WHAT exactly did those bathroom photographs depict?

More importantly, WHY did those specific photographs never get brought into evidence?

I could ask the same question about the now infamous “bathroom boot print” photograph that never even got discussed during the trial — but that can wait for another day.

Let me also clarify something here:

This post is not intended to contradict Jodi’s testimony or her account of TA’s unprovoked attack. It is solely intended to highlight the fact that Flores & Martinez saw the additional bathroom photographs, but then ultimately decided it would be in their best interests to exclude them from evidence as they didn’t quite “fit” with their M.O.

It’s not that Martinez ever had anything against Jodi… or that he ever really gave 2 shits about the worthless piece of abusive & retarded inbred Mormon pedo-scum MF he was representing.  Not at all. He just likes to “win at all costs” regardless of all factors — as we know from all the ethics & misconduct complaints currently stacking up against him from all angles.

The thing is — those “missing” photographs probably validate Jodi’s testimony regarding the sequence of events — hence the exclusion. This of course is the same “sequence of events” that Flores gave 3 different versions of under oath. Go figure.

For anyone thinking the camera & memory card stuff is old hat, it’s not.

Why?

Because if there were 2 memory cards in the washing machine — and the photographs & testimonies certainly confirm that to be the case — that means the other (2nd) memory card (and all its contents) was deliberately concealed and/or disposed of… which is not too dissimilar to what happened to all the phone SIM cards, and all the child porn images found on TA’s laptop.

So while many people may think this case is over and done with… nothing could be further from the truth. There’s still a long way to go.

Let’s fucking do this.

UPDATE: The JAA Appellate Fund total currently stands at $105,247.77 — so let’s be sure to keep the momentum rolling so the fund total can push on towards the ultimate target of $250,000. That in turn will help towards covering all the legal fees associated with appealing Jodi’s wrongful conviction.

All donations via Justice4Jodi.com go directly to the fund. It is also the ONLY website authorized to collect donations.

In addition, please DO NOT, under any circumstances, donate through any other website or Facebook page/group claiming to be “official” and/or acting with Jodi’s approval or authorization. The same applies to any “Jodi Membership Clubs”, groups or fake Trust funds that have been set up. These sites are bogus – they continue to steal money from Jodi’s future – and they should be actively avoided. If you are aware of any such sites, please help Jodi by clicking here and reporting them.

Remember… each day that passes takes us one day closer to Jodi’s release date.

The Mysterious Stench of Decomp & BS

in Latest News by

.
Following on from Jade’s last post… and the fact that numerous people were in & out of TA’s house between June 4th thru June 9th… all seemingly oblivious to the decomposition stench… today’s post features several photographs from inside the house, taken after CSI had left. This should give you a good idea of the layout in relation to the master bedroom, the air vents, the bathroom, the staircase & the areas where the roommates lived.

Pic #1 – The main staircase:

The doors to the master bedroom are at the very top of the stairs, which everyone would have passed while going to and from their rooms. Also note the air conditioner vent directly above the bedroom doors.

Pic #2 – The roommates area:

Looking left from where the above photograph was taken is where the roommates lived. The top left of that picture (above the door frame) also appears to show another air conditioner vent.

Pic #3 – The master bedroom doorway:

This is the double-door entrance to the master bedroom at the top of the stairs (as in Pic #1). For reference purposes in the next pictures, note to the right of the door where the carpet has been removed.

Pic #4 – The Master bedroom closet/hallway view:

Taken from the far end of the bedroom, this is the view looking back at the main bedroom doors, one of the closet doors, and the hallway leading down to the bathroom.

Pic #5 – The view from the  bathroom:

Taken from the bathroom, this is the view looking back down the hallway. Cupboard door to the left… closet door to the right… the piece of wall removed far left of the hallway… and the piece of carpet removed (as in Pics #3 & #4).

Pic #6 – The shower:

Moving to the right from Pic #5 above, this picture includes the 2nd closet door and the shower.

Finally, this is a segment from the now infamous Flores Report, highlighting the decomposition stench that was encountered upon entering the house – which strangely enough, nobody else noticed up to that point in time…

(Click the image for a close up view in a new window)

Flores Report text

The yellow highlighted text reads: “There was a strong odor associated with a decomposing body all over the home. This odor was evident as soon as we entered the front door.”

Going on the above pics… the location of the master bedroom… the stairway… the air conditioner vents… and how the roommates & friends were in & out of the house countless times that same week — the the fact that nobody noticed any decomposition stench certainly raises a load more questions.
