A very detailed study of Dr. Kevin Horn’s testimony in the Jodi Arias trial concerning the autopsy and the autopsy report of Travis Victor Alexander concludes, with a great degree of certainly, Dr. Kevin Horn committed perjury on the two occasions he testified under oath in the Jodi Arias trail. The report reveals probable false statements on several issues and points.
Dr. Kevin Horn’s apparent perjuries are as follows:
Dr. Horn claimed the statement in his autopsy report, “The dura mater and falx cerebri are intact,” was a typo. His autopsy report does not support this statement.
Dr. Horn misrepresented his autopsy report, a legal document he neither discredited nor disproved. This legal document is a sworn statement of truth. To testify otherwise is a conflict of truths, and two opposing truths cannot coexist.
Dr. Horn asserted the .25 caliber bullet “must have” passed through the right anterior lobe of Travis Alexander’s brain. His autopsy report does not support this statement, and Dr. Horn stepped outside his role as scientist by stating opinion as fact.
Dr. Horn dogmatic asserted a bullet passing through the front lobe of a human brain would automatically cause incapacitation. This is an outrageous statement no one in medical science can or should ever assert. It’s like asserting, all old men involved in traffic accidents die.
Dr. Horn speculated Alexander’s lung could have been incised or pierced when the superior vena cava had been injured. The autopsy report does not support this statement.
Dr. Horn’s failure to correct the prosecutor’s assertion a stab wound to the superior vena cava or to the lung could cause the ear to bleed. This is a medical impossibility, and Dr. Horn allowed the statement to go unchallenged during his expert testimony, giving credence to the prosecutor’s statement.
All Dr. Horn’s apparent false statements deprived the defendant a fair trail by unfairly and wrongfully undermining material evidence supporting the defendant’s claim of self-defense.
Detective Esteban Flores spent four or five years claiming Dr. Kevin Horn had told him Alexander had been shot first. He made such statements in television interviews and even testified to the same during a pre-trial hearing under oath. At trial, Detective Flores changed his story to say Alexander had been shot last. The change in his story deprived the defendant a fair trail by unfairly and wrongfully undermining material evidence supporting the defendant’s claim of self-defense and constitutes perjury.
That Dr. Kevin Horn receives no apparent benefit for lying on his own volition, it automatically follows that, since the prosecutor would benefit solely and greatly through any perjuries by the medical examiner, prosecutor Juan Martinez would have ample motivation to suborn perjury in this capital case.

Is prosecutorial misconduct and perjury business as usual for the legal system in Arizona? It appears so to a worldwide audience, a worldwide audience of would-be tourists who watched this trial with ever-widening eyes. This world audience had not all become mesmerized by HLN’s coverage. From comments on social media, they tended to see the truth of this thing.
If Jodi Arias cannot receive a fair trial from the Arizona courts, then what safeguard do these tourists have to protect themselves from the same corrupt legal system? People want to visit the Grand Canyon, admire the saguaro cacti along Interstate 8, and see all of Arizona’s natural wonders. These people, these would-be tourists do not want to experience the nightmare of going on a short Arizona vacation only to spend the rest of their lives in an Arizona prison due to prosecutorial misconduct and corruption.
Arizona is one of the most beautiful states in the Union, a draw to millions of visitors every year. Juan Martinez, Dr. Kevin Horn, and Detective Esteban Flores have managed to turn this State into one of the seediest places on earth, on national television no less.
There is no place for corruption in our legal system. Corruption leads to legal tyranny, and then nobody is safe.
I encourage Arizona Governor Janice Brewer to order Attorney General Tom Horne to investigate Medical Examiner Dr. Kevin Horn of Maricopa County for perjury and conspiracy to commit perjury and any other crimes associated with the same in the capital case against Jodi Arias.

I encourage Arizona Governor Janice Brewer to order Attorney General Tom Horne to investigate Prosecutor Juan Martinez for conspiracy to commit perjury, witness tampering, subornation for perjury, and any other crimes associated with the same in this capital case against Jodi Arias.
It is not a prosecutor’s place to decide guilt and then manufacture testimony in support of prejudice. We find truth where it lies, not where we want it to be or where we think it ought to be.
Let truth prevail.
