A new 100-page inmate file for convicted killer Jodi Arias, reveals that she has thrown a fit over a haircut and complained about receiving death threats while behind bars.
Arias, now 38 years old, was found guilty in 2013 of first-degree premeditated murder of her ex-boyfriend, 30-year-old Travis Alexander. He was discovered dead in his shower with nearly 30 stab wounds and a bullet in his head at his home in Mesa, Arizona, and prosecutors claimed Arias planned the killing after Alexander broke up with her.
The convict has been in custody since her murder trial started, and she is currently serving a life sentence out at the Perryville prison in Goodyear, according to 12 News, a local NBC affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona, which obtained the document.
Arias spent the first two years of her prison sentence in maximum custody, and nowadays she mostly stays confined to an 86-square-foot cell. But she is allowed to have a cellmate and she can socialize with other inmates outside of her cell.
But, she doesn't seem to be socializing too well.
The document also explained how in 2016, Arias once wigged out when she couldn’t get her hair cut by her preferred stylist. She is said to have called an official who delivered the bad news an offensive name.
The new document revealed that people have threatened to kill Arias.
In 2015, while conducting a mail scan, a corrections official found a letter addressed to Arias that triggered worry. It said that a person “and a female accomplice have stated that they are going to put funds on the books of some inmate there so that the inmate can do harm to you." according to 12 News.
In another incident, Arias told an officer that an inmate threatened her, reportedly telling her, "I'm going to [expletive] kill you [expletive] the same way you killed [redacted name]."
Arias has reportedly complained about several threats and has asked the prison to transfer her for safety.
Still, the convicted killer seems to be finding ways to communicate with the outside world.
During one phone call, Arias reportedly told a friend to tweet for her so that she could effectively complain about an alleged lack of hot water at the prison for several days.
