All the people you will never know, that you brought to their knees.
Dedicated the Detective Esteban Flores and Family
Hai everyone. I am so sorry about the wait. I know that everyone is waiting for the smack down that has been presented over the proceeding two days. I did however have something last night that unfortunately could not wait. On advice of um, a person, I cannot discuss it here. Suffice to say it was well worth my time. Your Queen/Dean of Fuckery/ Law Professor/ Doctor of doctoring/ qualified sarcasm expert/and all around bitch will not let you down I assure you.
Before we start, I’d like to say something. When murders occur, you always remember the name of the perpetrator. Not the victim. Hell, I bet I can name every murderer of any noteworthiness from Ed Gein on up. It’s not something that gives me any joy, it just is. I’ve listed victims in other blogs because I think it is important that we never forget them. This victim was Travis Victor Alexander. He will always be thirty years old. When this is over, please don’t ever forget that.
I took copious notes all day yesterday so that we wouldn’t miss anything and again today. Enough notes that my wrist may never be the same (I don’t have documentation for that) There were some questions posed in the comments section that I am going to try and get to as well, but this is going to be an exceptionally long blog post so I may save them for tomorrow. When I say long, I mean bring a snack long. I have a ton of ground to cover. I also now know why Juan didn’t want to have Stabby’s super secret testimony stricken. It will become clear very shortly.
I present to you the most perfect song for these two days in the history of EVER.
Esteban Flores, consummate professional set aside his own grief to be in court today realizing that today was going to be the day that his pitbull was likely going to really need him. And he would have been right.
Please remember that this blog covers the two days of Dr. DeMarte’s testimony. Day 1. Court started with a motion to preclude Dr. DeMarte because there is no fucking way that Alfred E. or Jenny wants her anywhere near the stand. Nurmi said that they were not provided with documents regarding Dr. DeMarte and the pitbull snarled in the first 60 seconds of court. It was going to be that kind of day. I have now promoted the Judge back to Sometimes Judge Stephens because she said she was satisfied with the States word that they had indeed provided the documentation. Nurmi pitched one of his by now I am sure copyrighted fits that this put the defense at a disadvantage…because having a convicted murderer as a client totally doesn’t do that.
We next found out that Great Nana Dr. Sexpert and Dr.(not a doctor) Geffner would be back for sur-rebuttal. There are a couple more (my sources haven’t confirmed yet so I will let you know.) Nurmi, realizing his fit was not getting him anywhere asked for a delay so that he could interview DeMarte and while he was at it he motioned to preclude Detective Smith from testifying. Sometimes Judge Stephens wants Juan to call Det. Smith at Lunch. That was unfortunately not possible. There is a request for a chambers report from 10/30/14 to which Juan giddily said no objections and Nurmi had a complete meltdown. And sidebar.
After the sidebar Dr. DeMarte was called to the stand and sworn. Juan took her through her CV and the fact that she has been in private practice since 2012 and has testified in 5 criminal trials. Juan paced as he asked her if any judge anywhere ever told her she was not credible. She smirked a little as she said no that had never happened. Juan asked how many times she had met with the defendant and he spit the word defendant like it tasted bad in his mouth. His disgust is like a live thing at this point. Dr. DeMarte said she met with the defendant on 4 separate occasions for a total of about 17 hours. Juan, who was almost giddy asked if DeMarte disagreed with the experts. Juan asked her how she formed her opinions. She said she watches her subjects and doesn’t take just one piece of info as fact. She watches people to see how they behave. She explained how she does testing and interviews and how she testified in the first trial.
She went into the tests she did that showed that Stabby had high intelligence and between the shrieking of Jenny and the mayweapproach of Nurmi we got a sidebar. Me thinks that maybe they want the jury to think Stabby is a little slow now instead of all Einstein-y.
Stabby was shooting daggars at Demarte. Does anybody remember that movie Scanners. Well, Stabby was staring at Dr. DeMarte like she would really like it if her head would explode.
Juan brought up the trauma symptoms inventory and the DT immediately called for another sidebar. Oh it’s going to be a loooooong day.
Finally Juan got to ask about the trauma symptom inventory. Juan is not a happy pitbull right at the moment. This was passed on to DeMarte By Dr. (and I say that term loosely)Samuals. He gave her the bubble sheet. The trigger answer by Stabby was non sexual attack by Stranger which we already know is a big fat non existent ninja lie. Dr. DeMarte said that because the answer was a lie the entire test is invalid. The Jurors are completely engaged and taking a shit ton of notes. Dr. DeMarte concluded a personality and adjustment disorder which is related to anxiety and a depressed mood due to the change in her circumstances. To paraphrase, the special little snowflake didn’t like that she was in jail. Goddesses don’t belong in jail. Yup, she described herself as a goddess. I’m totally serious.
Juan paced as he asked Dr. DeMarte to explain what an adjustment disorder was. It is an inability to cope with life changes. Juan smiled for the first time possibly ever when he said you mean like being in Jail? Dr. DeMarte smiled back as she answered in the affirmative. The vet looked relieved that Juan was so mellow at the moment and put the catch pole and dart gun down. Juan rocked back and forth and asked the good doctor if this was a mental illness. Dr. DeMarte was more than happy to explain that nope, nuh uh, not a mental illness. It is a psychological disorder.
Juan next asked when Dr.DeMarte got Geffners notes. She said Dec/14 and that he told her that she can’t release the data he’s given her. Dr.DeMarte told him that she didn’t need him to school her on this issue and that he quoted the wrong statute. (excuse me a moment please) ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahhaha. Thanks. DeMarte said that the way Geffner led the questioning was a problem. He provided the trauma. So the test was invalid.
Juan skipped back and forth to the prosecution table for goodboy treats every once in a while as he happily let Dr. DeMarte rip apart Stabby, Dr. Geffner, the defense premise and whatever else she felt like mauling.
Juan wanted to know about the PTSD test. She said she would consider it invalid because stabby used different answers and because Dr. Getagrip led her. He talked about things not on the test invalidating them.
Stabbykins, you know the special little snowflake that all of these bad men took advantage of, turns out bitch had an STD and she told Travis about it. He apparently was a little less than impressed about it. She says that he threw her down and she was all afraid and shit. She said she tried to protect herself by scratching Travis’ eyes but she didn’t want to hurt him. Now, if this particular statement makes sense to anybody here, please raise your hand. The defense had a collective stroke over the STD thing because god forbid anybody think Stabbykins was as promiscuous as a rabbit and a screaming match ensued that culminated in a sidebar. Defense claimed that the prosecution failed to disclose. I’d say maybe they ought to talk to their client about not disclosing things and maybe ChaCha better hit up a clinic on the way home. Just sayin’.
Juan now started to bring up all the holes in poor muffins story. There was a question about forced sex to which Stabby answered never. The next time she was asked it she answered sometime. Alfred E. turned the color of eggplant and called for a sidebar. The Jury got to tour the hallway and DeMarte was asked to leave the room. It was a long sidebar.
Nurmi was having a complete right there on the spot meltdown about the character assassination of his client. Sometimes Judge Stephens seems to be completely over this entire farce of a trial and told him to sit the fuck down. Over ruled. Everybody trooped back in and a completely giddy pitbull had Dr. DeMarte read into the record an affidavit from a relative of Stabbykins that said she was snide and a Bitch. And we have a sidebar. Next Dr. DeMarte read into the record that Gramma Stabby said that Stabby was always mean to her mother. The Grandparents also said that Stabby Einstein constantly corrected everyone’s grammar. Don’t you fucking hate that. I know I do. DeMarte gleefully said that those examples would be classified as aggressive and overbearing. DeMarte begins to bring up the Purple Plum and Nurmi immediately went for a sidebar. Sometimes Judge Stephens called a break. The pitbull skipped jauntily out of the courtroom on his way to a porterhouse steak and a nice run in the park.
Back from the break the pitbull mentioned that Dr. Sexpert and Dr.(not a doctor) geffner said Stabby lacked self esteem. He asked Dr. DeMarte if the statement she was about to read might just sort of refute that maybe just a little. Dr. DeMarte said yes and began to read. Stabby once pretended not to know Yreka and asked some hot dude to show her around. She also gave her number out to a guy on the way back from Travis’ memorial service.
Juan paced again as he asked Dr. DeMarte if in her opinion Stabby was a victim of Domestic Violence. She said uhhhh, not even close. Travis was never violent with any other women ever according to records and interviews. Juan then asked if there was a difference between physical and verbal abuse. DeMarte said yes but their interactions were normal. Was there a pattern of verbal abuse. She said no. Stabby was furiously scribbling horns onto doodles of Dr. DeMarte and Juan. That poor little golf pencil is going to snap if she puts much more pressure on it. Juan stopped in front of Dr. DeMarte and asked what would be crossing the line. She said the text message from the 26th was inappropriate, but Travis was angry because she had been intrusive, crossed boundaries and lied.
Next Juan, with all the skill of a ballet dancer brought out that in her past interviews Stabby had never indicated any domestic violence by her parents. DeMarte had asked about substance abuse by her parents and she had answered in the negative to those questions as well. She never said she saw cocaine, or saw her father use cocaine. SIDEBAR.
Juan pirouetted and handed Dr. DeMarte a paper to read. And I quote. My parents never physically or sexually abused me. End quote. Samuels notes from 12/09 corroborate this statement.
Juan had a shit ton more evidence and all four idiots of the apocalypse were having fits. Jenny screeched in that sound like nails on a chalk board, Nurmi wanted an approach and Cha Cha was trying to distract Stabby with her funky disco earrings. After another sidebar during which time Sometimes Judge Stephens told Nurmi to give it up we got some evidence.
Exhibit 886 was admitted an interview with Zeyna C a childhood friend. It stated that no abuse occurred by either of Stabbyy’s parents and that Jody loved nothing more than playing victim. every juror in the place is taking notes.
Exhibit 888 admitted Aimee L – Cousin. She is not aware of any physical abuse or sexual abuse to Stabby or her siblings. She was never even spanked. all the kids were spoiled.
Interview Julie Arias-half sister. Parents said that Stabby was purposely secretive and didn’t want her parents to know anything about her life.
Juan, who now had an almost shit eating grin on his face worked hard to keep his voice from going into singsong mode. Juan wanted to know if Travis was officially dating anybody while he was testing 12 women at once. DeMarte gave an unequivocal no. Stabby meanwhile was in a deep philosophical discussion with ChaCha about her goddessness and how she couldn’t understand why nobody was paying attention to that particular mitigating circumstance.
The pitbull asked if Dr.DeMarte knew that Stabby kept her relationship with Bobby Juarez (the ninja bread man) a secret? DeMarte said yes. Juan then with much glee handed the Dr. an interview of Sandy and Bill otherwise known as mom and dad Stabby. Nurmi may have objected himself into a hernia he is working so hard to keep this particular piece of evidence out. Stabby apparently had a fear of abandonment and engaged in behavior to pull people towards her and then
stab them 29 times…hang on I read that wrong, and then create conflict.
Juan looked over at Detective Flores who quickly flipped him a goodboy treat before he continued. He offered Dr. DeMarte one but she passed. Next up was a text between Michelle and Travis and of course WE HAVE A SIDEBAR!wcp;wihhetdzgivw. Yeah, head off of keyboard. (I don’t have documentation for that.)
Juan looked a little less than impressed that the idiots are fucking with his flow and he smacked the text down on the overhead loud enough that a couple of people jumped. The vet slowly reached for the dart gun and Detective Flores pulled out the squeaky nurmi chew toy. The text was about Stabby spying on Travis. Another text said that he doesn’t know for sure if she slashed his tires but he caught her twice spying on him making out with someone. Dr. DeMarte explained that this behavior came from her fear of abandonment and her unrelenting continuous pursuit of Travis. My hand is getting sore, can we all just agree that the chick is whack and call it a night? No? You need to read the rest? Fine, I love you guys so fine.
Deanna and Lisa told DeMarte that Stabby always showed up uninvited. No, I don’t know why this isn’t hearsay, I just write it. Dr. DeMarte and the king of the courtroom are doing a spectacular job of dismantling the defenses psychological diagnosis brick by really stupid brick.
Next is a text between Travis and someone regarding a missing diamond ring. Jenny objected, but more out of habit than because she thought it might actually work. Sometimes Judge Stephens said a quick “Bye Felicia” and it was admitted.
The Transcripts just kept on coming. The next one was taylor S. And we have a sidebar because at this point why the fuck not. The transcript of Taylor Surely’s interview was admitted. travis told her he dated Stabby for several months He told how Stabby hacked his facebook, emails, and entered his home uninvited.
Juan then gracefully transitioned into conversations with Sky Hughes. Sky caught Stabby listening outside of a bathroom door while Travis was on the phone, and found her waiting behind a closed bedroom door while he was talking to Deanna Reid. She followed Travis all over the house. She said that when Travis said he didn’t want to see Stabby anymore she got exceptionally upset.
Exhibit 907 was brought out to be entered and I thought this may be the one that pushed Alfred E over the edge. Darryl Brewer. Nurmi Objected like they were closing down his favorite icecream parlor. and we have a sidebar. Once again Sometimes Judge Stephens told Nurmi to get stuffed and the exhibit was admitted. According to Daryl Brewer said he was afraid he was getting too involved with Stabby. She was clingy and needed and it caused him to begin to pull away. Nurmi looks at the next item up for review and I swear his head exploded a little.
The next transcript was from Matt McCartney. Matt McCartney stated that he moved to get away from Stabby. He tried to break off the relationship but she cried a lot and threatened to off herself (which would have saved a shit ton of money)He felt bad so he continued to date her but with no physical contact. At that moment a sharp noise was heard in the courtroom. It was the golf pencil that had been snapped in half. Matt stated that he needed space from her needy clinginess. She displayed the same stalker tendencies that she had with all of her other boyfriends.
Dr. DeMarte chimed in now. Borderlines tent to have very fast attachments to other people. They idealize them but can devalue them just as quickly. Stabby drove to crater lake to confront Bianca, not exactly the m/o of a wilting flower. DeMarte said that Stabby moved fast with her feelings. She devalued Travis by killing him but then started courting other men on the way back from the memorial. DeMarte said that Stabby’s friends called her a chameleon and could change personalities depending on who she was with.
Dr. DeMarte painted a very vivid picture of a very unstable person. Nurmi who just as an aside looks a lot like he sat on a hand grenade asked for an approach before the next bomb went off. Sometimes Judge Stephens maybe feeling bad for him allowed it.
The next piece of evidence was a text from Travis to Stabby
It gets old when you dramatize everything. you moan when you can’t make PC(no clue) you hung up on me. Now you are on your own. DeMarte said that being dramatic along with anger is part of boarderline.
Juan, who you could have almost forgotten was there so engrossing was Dr. DeMarte slapped a letter up on the overhead from Stabby, on valentines day. It tells Travis that her anger can be very destructive Seething violent outbursts when she feels criticized.
It was brought out that Stabby kicked her mother. give it another week and I bet we find out Stabby was the one beating people with a wooden spoon.
Like a magician pulling out a bouquet of flowers, juan brought out the transcripts of 2/14 regarding stabby’s totally fake suicide talk. The go over Stabby’s statement about nobody convicting her and then how she amended it to say it was because she planned to be dead but the paper cut was to stingy. Then she thought suicide by advil but for whatever reason that didn’t work out.
Juan spun, bowed and finished his cross of the effervescent Dr. DeMarte. Court was called for the day and Alfred E is up to bat tomorrow. Good luck with that Alfred E.
So, that is it for tonight kids. On the sur rebuttal train we for sure have Dr. Sexpert and Geffner. There may be two more, but I can’t say until I confirm. Sorry. As soon as I know you will know.
