Jodi Arias Is Getting Death Threats & Tweeting From Jail, Prison File Shows
The 38-year-old, who was found guilty of murdering her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, is serving a life sentence in a prison in Perryville.
GOODYEAR, AZ — From threats to her life to arguments over being denied a haircut, a newly released inmate file provides a window into what convicted murder Jodi Arias' life is like behind bars.
Arias's inmate file was released to 12 News by the Arizona Department of Corrections.
In 2008, Arias stabbed her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, numerous times inside his Arizona home before shooting him in the head. She was sentenced to life in prison.
On May 13, 2015, while conducting a mail scan, a corrections official found a letter written to Arias that indicated potential trouble. It read, "No cause for alarm (as of yet) but you do need a heads up."
The file also documents threats to Arias' life.
According to the document, an unamed person and a female accomplice have stated that they are going to put funds on the books of another inmate in the prison so that the inmate "can do harm to you."
In a separate incident, Arias told an officer that an inmate began yelling at her, saying, "I'm going to [expletive] kill you [expletive] the same way you killed [redacted name]." The person was likely referring to Travis Alexander.
Arias told a corrections official the harassment is getting worse by the day, and she asked for her recreation time to get moved to avoid it.
In her file, Arias has just one disciplinary infraction — for disrespecting staff.
The report said that in February of 2016, Arias was upset because she was denied a haircut by a particular barber she requested — and called the barber who denied the request "an offensive term."
According to one report, Arias posts messages on social media through a friend.
Corrections officials say that on one occasion, Arias directed a friend to tweet that she had no hot water for several days at Perryville.
Arias' friend Donavan Bering previously posted messages dictated by Arias, according to ABC News.
But Bering and Arias appeared to have had a falling out: In 2015, Arias stated that Bering was on her "s$#t list" for allegedly locking her out of her Twitter account.
Now, an account with Jodi's Twitter updates is reportedly being maintained by another friend outside of prison.
Also detailed in the file is that several family members have come to see Arias, according to the visitors list.
Marc McGee, a friend of Alexander's, was also reportedly on the list.
