Radar Online reports that Alexander, 30, entitled the May 18, 2008 post “Why I Want to Marry a Gold Digger.” In it, he wrote about being a single man and how he wanted to change his mind set from dating to being married.
“Desperately trying to find out if my date has an axe murderer penned up inside of her and knowing she is wondering the same thing about me,” Alexander wrote. “That’s usually when I think myself into a panic and start acting weird in consequence to trying so hard to act normal.”
He noted his perfect woman would be spiritual, attractive, articulate and someone who wants to have children.
In addition, Alexander wrote, “...there is one thing that I have come to appreciate as much or more than all the others. I don’t know how to label this quality except to say that it is the quality to appreciate the qualities in me.” He added, “This life is a beautiful life. A life that is all the more beautiful when we find someone of like mind, heart and spirit to share it with.”

Arias is accused of slitting Alexander’s throat, stabbing him 27 times, and shooting him in the head in his Mesa home in June 2008. The two had only dated for a few months after meeting in 2006 at a convention in Las Vegas. They broke up in 2007, but reportedly continued to have sex until the day Alexander was killed.
Although Arias initially denied killing Alexander, on a memory card found in a camera that had been put through a laundry cycle, police discovered images of Arias and Alexander in their final sexual encounter, as well as photos of Alexander showering just prior to being murdered. Some of the pictures appear to have been snapped accidentally when the camera was dropped, such as one showing the victim’s bloody body and another depicting Arias dragging him across the floor.
Due to Arias’ demeanor, she has been compared to the infamous Fla. mother acquitted of killing her own daughter, Casey Anthony.
