On March 6, 2013, a new video was released that shows slain Ariz. man, Travis Alexander, speaking about a near death experience he had during a robbery. Also in the video is Jodi Arias, the woman currently on trial for murdering Alexander in 2008.
Jacob and Hollie Mefford provided the video to HLN’s Dr. Drew Pinsky, who aired the footage on his show Wednesday night.
The video was shot in 2006 after an Oklahoma City convention, according to HLN. The cable network reports that Hollie “felt compelled to videotape” Alexander telling the story of an experience he had that left him shaken and thinking about his mortality.

In part of the video, Alexander can be heard saying, “[The robber] put me down on my knees and was asking for the phone—and he said I had like five seconds to distribute the wad. I’m seeing myself face down, blood, full of blood… and I’m like, this is death. This is death.”
Alexander added, “They say your life flashes before your eyes—well, I can’t say that—but it’s amazing how many thoughts that you can distribute… get out of your mind in a few seconds.”
Arias just wrapped up her testimony on Tuesday, and on Wednesday she returned to the stand to answer questions posed by the jury. ABC News reports that the over 100 questions asked by jurors indicates they are skeptical of her story regarding the killing of Alexander.
Prosecutors argue Arias, 32, killed Alexander, 30, in cold blood as he showered in his Mesa home in 2008. He was stabbed 27 times, his throat was slashed, and he was shot in the head. After initially lying about his death, she admitted killing Alexander, but claims she did so in self-defense.
