Dear Travis Alexander

Dear Travis Alexander,

You have no idea who I am, however, I know all about you. I guarantee your family wishes I had no clue. I shouldn’t know who you are and what your personal life was like. I shouldn’t have the ability to read e-mails & text messages you sent with no intention of being read aloud to an audience and used against you.

Gosh, if only you could be a fly on the wall… feasibly, maybe you are?

Your murder shouldn’t be plastered all over national news as a form of entertainment & curiosity.

Regrettably I inform you that I can’t look away.

I can’t look away from your siblings tortured eyes as they have sat and waited for your death to be punished for years. I can’t look away from Jodi’s evil eyes & twisted smirk. I can’t look away from Juan Martinez as he pushes and fights for you. I can’t look away from the defense counsel, as they reach and grab for their next outlandish excuse.

You may not have been as holey as your religion wanted you to be; that’s okay. You loved yourself some ladies & that’s okay. There were people you were close to that didn’t know all of your secrets & ya know what?…That’s okay too.

You were human & that is not a defensive strategy for murder.

Nothing could ever justify the cruel, devilish way you were forced to leave earth. No magic can bring you back to your family & friends. The love and support your family has for each other and you shines much brighter than any words Jodi or her team can muster up.

There have been obscene delays & blows to your character. The number of distasteful allegations are something Jodi & her team should be embarrassed of. The odds are not in her favor, of that I’m sure. God works in mysterious ways; karma works abstrusely.

Jodi Arias will get her hell. Maybe in the form of the death penalty sentence everyone has been waiting for. If not, I hope that your family & loved ones can gain some peace in the sheer fact that this circus of a trial is over.

Your soul continues to shine. There is no evil strong enough to take that.

With Love,

Jen

  1. Reblogged this on Properly Ridiculous and commented:

    As a second jury was unable to come to a unanimous decision regarding convicted murderer, Jodi Arias’ fate… she will now be sentenced to life in prison. As Travis Alexander’s sister, Tanisha walked out of court today, she told reporters, “The real justice for Jodi Arias will come in the afterlife” …
    And, I couldn’t agree more.
    I’m happy there’s finally some closure for the Alexander family, but certainly not happy about the outcome.

  2. Terrific post. Even though none of us knew Travis or his family or what they could possibly feel, you captured so much of what the rest of us have thought and felt. Maybe he wasn’t an angel, but none of us are, and we don’t deseve the fate that followed him. She’ll get what she deserves one day….on this side, or the other.
    Nicely done.

    1. Thank you. I’ve always been a bit of a trial junkie – but this case was just like nothing I’ve ever heard before. I am very happy that the Alexander family will not have to sit through the appeals of a death verdict – I hope they are able to finally find some peace.
