During the July 15, 2008, conversation, with Mesa, Ariz. Police Det. Esteban Flores, Arias said “If I am found guilty I won’t have a life… If I killed Travis I would beg for the death penalty.”
She is seen telling Flores she was not anywhere near Alexander’s home at the time he was killed. The detective then revealed found photos on a digital camera recovered at the murder victim’s home, which indicate she was there.

“You sure it was me?” she asked Flores. “I was not there. I didn’t hurt Travis.”
Flores told Arias her blood, hair, and palm print were all left at the crime scene and offered to show her the photos police recovered, saying, “There’s pictures of you lying on the bed in pigtails.”
“Pigtails,” Arias replied appearing to be surprised, according to ABC 15.
She agreed to view them, and said, “There’s a morbid curiosity. I want to know how he died… I mean I am curious…”
Arias’ trial recessed shortly thereafter, but is slated to reconvene on Tuesday.
Arias, 32, is accused of murdering Alexander, 30, by shooting him in the head with a gun police believe she stole from her grandmother, slashing his throat, and stabbing him 27 times. After police recovered a camera memory card with images including Arias dragging Alexander’s lifeless body along the floor, she admitted to killing him, saying it was in self-defense.
