Jodi Arias claimed that she was innocent but soon it would be revealed that she was behind the brutal murder of her ex-boyfriend in 2008.
Footage from Jodi Arias: An American Murder Mystery – first airing Sunday – shows the moment the killer was confronted with the truth that she killed Travis Alexander.
Arias was 30 when she met Alexander and the two embarked on a whirlwind romance that only lasted a few months but continued after with numerous sexual encounters in 2006.

Even when Alexander began dating other women, the the two regularly saw each other and Arias grew more and more jealous.
Alexanders body was found on June 9, 2008, in his Meza, Arizona home. He was found with a gunshot wound to the head, a slit throat and a plethora of stab wounds to his body.
‘I just want to offer any assistance I might have. I was a really good friend of Travis’,’ Arias said during an early call with Mesa, Ariz. Detective Steve Flores.

She was already being identified as a suspect by friends of Alexander.
‘I heard that he passed away and I heard there was a lot of blood,’ she added.
‘I heard that his roommate found him or his friend found him or people were….I’m sorry, it’s odd. I’m just upset.’
And in an in-person meeting with Arias following additional phone calls, Detective Flores told the woman that her alibi trip from Yreka, California, to Salt Lake City, Utah, was questionable.
Flores had problems with the route Arias said she took during a trip and it was then that he told her that she had been at the house
‘So, this trip took you a little over 48 hours. I have a problem with this trip,’ Flores said.
‘If you slept for 10 hours, it would still leave 18 some odd hours. That’s when Travis was killed.’
And while Arias tries to assert that she wasn’t near Meza, Arizona, the detective calls her out.
‘You were at Travis’ house, you guys had a sexual encounter, which there’s pictures. And I know you know there’s pictures, because I have them,’ he said.
A camera had been found in Alexander’s washing machine revealed that the two had had a sexual encounter the day of his murder and featured Arias naked in bed.
And the revelation was all that Flores needed.
‘There’s no doubt in my mind that you did this. None,’ he said.
‘So you can go until you are blue in the face and tell me you weren’t there and you had nothing to do with it. I won’t believe you.’
Arias would deny that she did the crime even at that moment.
‘There’s no reason for it,’ she stated.
‘There’s no reason why. There’s no reason I would ever want to hurt him.’
Flores then showed her photos that were believed to be gone but were found in the washing machine
The clip ends with Flores reading Arias her Miranda Rights.
Arias was eventually found guilty of murder in a highly publicized trial detailing all the kinks and fetishes the two had been involved in.
She was sentenced to life in prison.
The three-day special starts on Sunday and will be shown exclusively on Investigation Discovery at 10pm Eastern.
