The Bullet

An issue in the trial is whether the bullet recovered from Travis Alexander’s cheek was hollow point. This is significant, as the ammunition stolen in Yreka was reported to be hollow point, suggesting Jodi didn’t stage a burglary to obtain a gun.

From the penalty retrial:

“Oh, one more thing, Detective: the shell casing there — it’s not a hollow point is it?” Nurmi asks. Flores answers, “Can’t tell.”
