Just four months before he was found dead in his Arizona home, Travis Alexander called police and reported that his car tires had been slashed, according to records obtained exclusively by ABC News. The incident, described as “criminal damage,” lists Alexander as the caller and his Mesa address, but Alexander did not report who he suspected was responsible.
The call, made to the Mesa Police Department on Feb. 2, 2008, has not been introduced in court, despite testimony regarding tire slashing from multiple witnesses during the four month-long trial of Jodi Arias, Alexander’s ex-girlfriend accused of his murder.
Arias, 32, is charged with first degree murder and could face the death penalty if convicted. Closing arguments are expected to begin late this week. She initially denied killing Alexander, 30, but claimed two years later that she killed him in self-defense.
