Former Jodi Arias Detective Calls Case A ‘Travesty,’ Details Her Bizarre Behavior

Ten years after the death of 30-year-old Travis Alexander, a new limited series is airing an exclusive interview with the detective who investigated the case that landed Jodi Arias behind bars, Fox News reported.

In 2008, Alexander, a Mormon salesman living in Arizona, was discovered dead in his shower with nearly 30 stab wounds and a bullet in his head. 

His girlfriend, Jodi Arias, was arrested for the murder, with prosecutors claiming that she planned the killing after Alexander broke up with her.

Arias was found guilty in 2013 of first-degree premeditated murder. She was sentenced to life in prison without parole, and she remains behind bars at the Arizona State Prison Complex in Perryville.

Now, Nathan Mendes — the detective who arrested Arias — is speaking out for the first time in a three-part Investigation Discovery series called “Jodi Arias: An American Murder Mystery.”

Details Slowly Emerge About ‘Suspicious’ Deaths Of 4 People Found In New York Basement

Police are currently investigating a series of deaths that occurred in an apartment in Troy, New York (a city about 160 miles away from the state’s capital), after four bodies were discovered in the basement.

According to CNN, at about 1 PM on Tuesday, police responded to a call from a property manager who found the four unresponsive individuals. The identities of the dead have not yet been revealed; police are waiting to confirm with next-of-kin before names are released. A potential cause of death was not announced, and it is not known if the dead all belonged to the same family.

It isn’t yet known whether or not the deaths are part of a larger series of incidents, although Troy Police Capt. Dan DeWolf believes this to be a stand-alone situation. DeWolf urged residents in the area to remain cautious until the case is solved.

“Unfortunately, it’s horrible, terrible, sad, especially at this

Congress Faces Pressure To Reveal Details Of Privately Settled Sexual Harassment Cases

According to the New York Times, members of both the Democratic and Republican parties are urging Congress to end the culture of secrecy surrounding sexual harassment accusations within the United States government. Their plan includes reforming the ways that claims about misconduct are handled in private, often resolved in out-of-court settlements (using tax payer money), which protect abusers from public accountability.

The discussion comes in the wake of John Conyers stepping aside as the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee. Conyers is the longest-serving member of the House. He had recently been accused of inappropriate behavior towards women. He is now under investigation from the House Ethics Committee.

“I deny these allegations, many of which were raised by documents reportedly paid for by a partisan alt-right blogger. I very much look forward to vindicating myself and my family before the House Committee on Ethics,” Conyers said in a statement.

8-Year-Old’s Brother Details Grisly Abuse He Allegedly Suffered From Mom’s BF Before Death

A California teen testified in court on Wednesday about the constant abuse he claims his 8-year-old brother suffered at the hands of his mother and her boyfriend, resulting in the younger boy’s death, People magazine reported.

The boy, Gabriel Fernandez died as a result of an eight-month-long period of abuse by his mother Pearl Fernandez and her boyfriend Isauro Aguirre, according to prosecutors. The couple were “conspiring together to deceive everyone in order to torture [him] to death” after the boy moved in with them in 2012, prosecutors said to NBC Los Angeles.

Aguirre, 37, and Fernandez, 34, have both been charged with murder in the boy’s death, and both pleaded not guilty. Gabriel’s brother, Ezequiel, testified in Aguirre’s case while Fernandez’s trial is still pending.
