    May 2013 – Dr. Horn's testimony: Dura mater was not intact. “Typo” on ME report. (This is ridiculous because a "typo" is usually a one-word mistake. In this case, the remainder of the report supports the conclusion that the dura mater was not penetrated and Travis may have not been incapacitated. In what world is that a "typo"?)
    May 2013 -- Det. Flores' testimony: He must have originally misunderstood Dr. Horn. (We must assume he also misunderstood the medical examiner's written report.)
    Could Travis have still been able to function after being shot in the head?
    Here are some Internet quotes regarding the effectiveness (or, better yet, the ineffectiveness) of .25-caliber guns and their bullets:
    Colonel Jeff Cooper, one of the 20th century's foremost experts on the use and history of small arms, once said about the little .25 caliber: "If you must carry a .25 caliber pistol, do not load it. For if you load it, you might use it. And if you shoot somebody with it, and they find out about it, they’re likely to be very upset with you."

    If in fact Travis Alexander had been attacked the way the State is alleging, he would have sustained multiple wounds on both hands, bilaterally, that is, on the outside of his hands and the inside of his hands. He would have also sustained bilateral wounds on the inside and outside of his arms from the elbows down. There are no such defensive wounds.
    One possible explanation is that he had his hands and arms around her when she began slashing in those final moments.

    The State also contends that the gunshot was last based on the fact that the bullet casing was found on top of a pool of coagulated blood. First of all, during such a violent event, there is no telling where a bullet casing might end up after the shooting. And is there any proof that those who found his body didn't accidentally kick it (maybe with that unknown boot that left an unidentified bloody print at the scene)?

For if you load it, you might use it. And if you shoot somebody with it, and they find out about it, they’re likely to be very upset with you."
    "While a .25 ACP beats the heck out of not having a gun at all, it’s simply not adequate at stopping a determined attacker."
    ”The people getting shot with these mouse guns aren’t typically incapacitated immediately, but linger and die in the hospital later on. Do you want to halt the threat now or later?”
    Or this: "We hear of an unfortunate woman who, during a nighttime asthma attack, confused the small handgun she kept under her pillow with an asthma inhaler and proceeded to relieve her symptoms. It was not a fatal mistake, partly because she used a 25 ACP, which everyone knows is not sufficient to clear sinuses."

    Round point vs hollow point bullets:
    The gun stolen from Jodi's grandfather's house in late May 2008 was loaded with hollow point bullets. According to the State's theory, Jodi removed these more powerful bullets and replaced them with the less powerful round point bullets. But the State gives no theory as to why someone plotting a murder would do such a thing.
    For information about the difference between round and hollow point bullets, see this YouTube video.
    Bullet casing:
    The State also contends that the gunshot was last based on the fact that the bullet casing was found on top of a pool of coagulated blood. First of all, during such a violent event, there is no telling where a bullet casing might end up after the shooting. And is there any proof that those who found his body didn't accidentally kick it (maybe with that unknown boot that left an unidentified bloody print at the scene)?
