The Jodi Arias saga has held the nation's attention since the charismatic young woman was first arrested for the 2008 murder of her one time boyfriend Travis Alexander. All eyes were glued to the goings on inside an Arizona courtroom and now an Arizona news agency has been granted exclusive access into the forensics lab that processed the evidence in the Travis Alexander murder case. The evidence examined by Mesa Forensic Services would ultimately lead to Jodi Arias being found guilty of the first degree murder of Travis Alexander.

Arizona news organization 3TV was granted exclusive access to the lab and spoke with Kimberly Fiorucci, the facility's administrator about the Arias case. The night Jodi Arias killed Alexander the pair had been spending an intimate evening together, having sex and taking photos of one another in erotic positions. At some point the night turned tragic and Alexander was stabbed more than 20 times, his throat was slashed and he was then shot in the head. Once the crime scene was processed forensic scientists began to piece the night back together.

"It came down to, at that crime scene, documenting that scene. You don't know what's important. But visually, it's your one chance to see what's in the scene," said Kimberly Fiorucci to 3TV. The lab techs working the Arias/Alexander case where given all of the evidence collected at the crime scene and began checking for DNA to see who they could place at the scene when Alexander was killed. Fiorucci told 3TV that the procedure in the Arias case was no different than any other murder scene the processed.

In an example of their procedures Fiorucci explained to 3TV: "If we are given a shoe in the lab and they asked for DNA, we would say do you want who wore the shoe, do you want the blood that's on the shoe, do you want the tread mark to see if that was the print left behind the bottom of the shoe?" When Arias was first questioned by police she told them she was nowhere near Alexander's home when he was killed. DNA evidence processed by the Mesa lab proved Arias was lying.

When 3TV asked Fiorucci what the odds were the DNA evidence was wrong or flawed somehow she responded "We're talking in the quintillions. Over a million times the Earth's population." DNA was not the only link connecting Arias to Alexander's home on the night of the murder. Arias' bloody hand print was discovered on a wall of the house as well as strands of her hair. When presented with this evidence Arias changed her story saying she was at the house when the murder occurred but did not do it.

Arias invented a story about masked intruders killing Alexander but sparing her life. The DNA evidence was once again presented to Arias who admitted she killed Alexander, but in self-defense not cold blood. The DNA, photos and other things taken from the crime scene convinced the jury Arias was guilty and they pronounced the verdict as such. The same jury could not decide if Arias should be sentenced to life in prison or be given the death penalty. A new jury is going to be sworn in to determine her fate. No trial date has been announced.
