Travis' friend: Jodi had 'creepy' request day of memorial

  • Jodi Arias, on trial for the murder of her ex-boyfriend, claims self-defense
  • Prosecutor Juan Martinez says that there is evidence of premeditated murder

Jodi Arias has accused ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander of a number of things since she has taken the stand, including physical assault and bullying her at times.

Arias and her attorneys claim she killed Alexander in self-defense, even though she had given authorities other stories about his death in the past.

After Alexander’s body was found in June of 2008 at his Mesa, Arizona home, Arias told police she was not involved in his killing. She later told investigators that she witnessed two intruders break in and kill him. Eventually, Arias said she killed Alexander in self-defense.

On Wednesday night, HLN's Dr. Drew talked to Travis' former roommate Aaron Dewey who said that he remembers that when Arias was in town for Alexander’s memorial, she had an odd request.

After picking Arias up from the home where she was staying while in the area, Dewey noted there was “plenty of extra time before the memorial service."

He further explained, “She asked me if we could take a quick detour and go by Travis' house to see the home before we went over to the memorial service,” adding, “looking back, knowing what she's done now, it's pretty creepy that less than two weeks after the killing, she actually wanted to return to the scene of the crime.”

Dr. Drew On Call airs Monday through Wednesday on HLN at 9 p.m. ET.  Follow the show on Facebook and Twitter @DrDrewHLN.
