Jodi Arias and Witness Tampering
In August of 2011, Jodi received a visit from a long time supporter, Ann Campbell. During the visit, Jodi asked a guard to give Ann two magazines. One was Star Magazine and the other was Digital Photo Pro. During trial, Martinez didn’t say why the guard decided to take a closer look, but during closer inspection found what looked to be a coded message. Contained in Star Magazine were numbers 43 40 56 20 37 54. Each of the numbers corresponded to a page in Digital Photo Pro. All together the coded message was..
“You fucked up what you told my attorney the next day / directly contradicts what I’ve been saying for over a year / get down here ASAP and see me before you talk to them again and before / you testify so / we can fix this / interview was excellent! Must talk ASAP!“
The intended recipient of the message remains unclear. However, based on court documents, the magazines were intercepted just a few weeks after the prosecution interviewed Arias’ ex-boyfriend, Matthew McCartney, and just four days before a pre-trial hearing.
