Travis Alexander was stabbed by ex-girlfriend Jodi Arias. The 32-year-old is accused of his murder on June 4, 2008.
Alexander’s body was found in in the bathroom shower of his apartment in Mesa, Arizona, with 27 stab wounds, a bullet to the head and his throat cut from ear to ear. Arias claims it was in self-defense, she said he was a controlling sexual deviant. Evidence emerged earlier in the trial that showed Arias killed Alexander while she was photographing him nude in the shower.
Alexander’s friends claim that Arias was stalking him and was “possessive and jealous.”
Alexander was raised in Riverside, California, with three brothers and four sisters: Gary Alexander, Greg Alexander, Tanisha Alexander, Samantha Alexander, Hillary Wixcox, Steven Alexander, and Allie Tilghman.
One of his sisters is Samantha Alexander, she is a Carlsbad, California police officer. Samantha said:
“Everyone loved Travis. His life was about helping other people and making the world a better place. He was a great person and very religious. This doesn’t usually happen to people like him.”
Samantha sat in the front row during Arias’ trial, repeatedly rolling her eyes when she made allegations against her brother.
