Travis Alexander's body was discovered sitting in his shower on June 9, 2008, in his Mesa, Arizona home. He had been dead five days, and his two roommates had been living under the same roof with his lifeless body. They thought he was on vacation in Mexico.3Alexander had been shot once in the head and stabbed 27 times.4 His neck had been cut ear to ear and all the blood had been washed from his body.3
Downstairs police found his bedsheets in the washing machine along with a digital camera with 8 photos on the memory card. These photos showed Jodi Arias naked on his bed, Alexander posing nude in the shower and finally two shots of his lifeless, bloody body. Police said the camera had gone off on accident when it captured the dead body. It was the photos and a bloody left palm print that prompted police to arrest Arias.
