Jodi Arias Allegedly Penned a Manifesto Behind Bars

We're admittedly a little obsessed with manifestos. Last year, we asked a number of local creatives to write their own manifestos, which we paired with local designers who created a series of posters . . .

But we doubt we'll be doing the same for Jodi Arias.

In case you haven't tuned in to our coverage on Valley Fever or watched the news for the past few months, Jodi Arias is accused of killing ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. Alexander was found in his house in 2008 with multiple stab wounds, a slit throat, and a gunshot to the head. Evidence at the scene pointed toward 32-year-old Arias, who's currently on trial in Phoenix.

And turns out, she wrote a manifesto of her own.

This week, prosecutor Juan Martinez asked psychotherapist Alyce LaViolette (an expert witness for Arias) about a manifesto Arias had written while behind bars in Yreka, California.

LaViolette admitted to hearing about the manifesto and confirmed that Arias was "signing or autographing copies of the manifesto" but that she hadn't seen it herself.

According to court records, the manifesto was not entered into evidence, and the contents of her manifesto are still unknown, but we'll be sure to outline what's sure to be a work of literature when it's released.
