I was gonna say the rest is history very grim my nightmarish history that -- to use you never had a relation with -- Now so did you move when you heard that Travis had been murdered.
Did you like so many others immediately suspect that she had perpetrated the crime.
Yeah out we we there was many of us who knew immediately that she was the one that did it and and there was nothing that is not what she had a criminal history or anything like that.
But it was just some really weird things that she would do weird behavior the way she acted the way she.
Followed him from when he would go on dates -- would you know she knew there's things in the -- that where she's been referred to as stocking.
So you know we -- we knew all of that stuff than.
And -- so when -- When -- as soon as we got the word that he was murdered everyone knew immediately it was -- even people who didn't know Jody that well.
Would suspect that and yet.
The help me here our entire Baghdad David gives them an -- preferred -- -- -- -- -- -- prior to our partner but I have to differentiate you from Dave hall.
So even though you didn't know -- -- -- -- to use so well.
You immediately thought she had.
Murderer on her mind -- summaries.
I did know her well -- and she worked on my team and -- I took calls from her and worked with her quite closely.
Well yes people who did not know her well.
Even suspected that it was her.
And and they've all -- sitting in court now did anything -- In terms of the testimony surprise you this week.
You know nothing has surprised me yet in this trial.
Other than the fact of how overwhelming.
The evidence is against our -- they had a pretty airtight case.
But what I'm seeing as they sit in the courtroom just blows my mind how how she can even think about getting off on this.
Do you know any.
Of error men.
Or women for that matter who will support her contention that Travis Alexander.
Was violent toward her -- -- You know I was on the phone today with.
One of Travis -- Former girlfriend sand.
Spoke at length about their relationship and -- can tea.
Everyone that I know.
That had any relationship.
Of significance with mr.

And it would be completely out of his character to show violence towards any female ever.
-- the -- that's -- says about you did call you first.
Do you think -- areas will take the witness stand in her own defense.
I hope so I really -- -- help the world gets the chance to hear.
From her as she has all the evidence of all of -- versions of her story put on the stand in house -- explained.
The bold faced lie is that she's told to the world over and over and over.
Inducted David years.
I absolutely think she'll take the stand and here's why I say that I think she'll take it because she knows that she has a wave with men.
And I think that she's gonna try and get -- somewhat the men and that jury.
To say there's no way -- you know that you to believe her story that she did it in self defense.
All right it will be yes certainly intriguing to watch and see if you -- that she certainly is an attractive.
Defended the studies -- attractive defendants do better I would juries especially then then not ugly ones do go figure de Paul thanks doctor David Hughes thank you both on.
