On June 9, 2008, the butchered body of Travis Alexander was found in his Arizona home with twenty-nine knife wounds, his throat slit, and a gunshot to the head. The prime suspect was Alexander's ex-girlfriend, Jodi Arias, who lied for years about her involvement before finally resting on an appalling claim: she had killed Travis in self-defense. Soon, graphic stories about the Mormon couple's relationship and their lurid sexual encounters emerged, launching a trial filled with sex and deception and raising substantial questions about Arias's deceit-filled world.
Now, with unbridled access to the case, award-winning broadcast journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell unearths Jodi's history to illustrate the disturbing pattern of a murderer in the making. Using insider accounts from those closest to Travis and Jodi, she separates fact from fiction, reporting on the bizarre and explicit stories that have shocked and fascinated the American public. Complete with photos and Velez-Mitchell's fresh insights, Exposed takes readers behind closed bedroom doors to uncover the truth behind the secret life of Jodi Arias.
