A tape of Jodi Arias surfaced following her police interrogation in 2008. In it she covers her face with her hair as you see above. She is highly conscious of her looks.
She grooms herself as she speaks to her self out loud. She can be heard saying “Jodi you should have put on your makeup. ” She appears to be very concerned about her makeup and her appearance for a number of reasons. Apparently Jodi has gotten by on her looks for a very long time. perhaps in her sick mind, she thought that if she looked her best all made up, the police officer would believe her and let her go because she looked so good. In essence she is thinking that if she looked good all made up she could seduce him into letting her go.
This shows how self oriented and narcissistic and completely deluded Jodi Arias was.
We see her in a confident pose with hands in back of her head. This indicates she is clearly not taking what is about to happen to her seriously. She is confident that she will be released and her body language shows this.
We also see her looking up and laughing. She has absolutely no remorse about what she did to Travis. She also laughs at no doubt thinking she will outsmart law enforcement whom she thinks will release her. She is showing an extreme example of duping delight.
She also sings about “memories” in her contest winning voice. The reason for is is self soothing, She is doing something to calm herself down and to get her mind off of the reality that will soon face her. It is a form of self soothing behavior.
Jodi even looks up at one point an sighs as though this is a big inconvenience for her.
Her rifling through the garbage can is also very telling. It speaks to her sneakiness and trying to get the edge over a situation. Perhaps she is thinking she can find a paper related to her with information that she can spin her way. In looking at this one can only imagine how she may have rifled through Travis’ garbage or his emails to get an edge over him with more information.
Finally we see her doing a head stand, which she does with ease. It is once again her way of dealing with all the pent up energy in her system. Even though she is not showing it outwardly, inwardly, there is a lot of anxiety beginning to surface. Once again it reflects her self soothing behavior.
At this point Jodi firmly believes in her mind that she will get away with murder. But her body language says otherwise.
It must have come to a huge shock to her moments later when she was booked and taken into custody.
