Did Jodi secretly change her hair color?

Juan Martinez argued in closing as follows:

Well, one of the other things that she does as part of this premeditation or part of what’s going on is, if you want to do something like this, it’s a good idea that when you show up that people not recognize you at the place where you are going to commit this murder. And so if you have blond hair and you saw the photograph of her with the blond locks and the black dog and when they told you that that’s the same colour, do you remember that line of questioning that went on with Lonnie Dworkin, their expert on computers. The question was asked, well, do you think that this hair here with the dog looks the same as the one where’s she laying back, do you remember that line? Like he some sort of expert on hair colour. You don’t need anybody to tell you what the hair colour was when she was there with the dog. You can see for yourself. You don’t need the prosecutor or anybody to tell you. But you do know one thing, you were also shown photographs that were also taken on June 3rd of 2008 about this same time and you saw the hair colour, didn’t you? Are you going to believe Mr. Dworkin and the defendant or are you going to believe your eyes?

However, Jodi did not have blond hair when the photograph of her was taken with Jewel:

She has some lighter brown hair, and some darker brown hair, but she is not blond, as Juan Martinez claimed.

Juan’s claim “And so if you have blond hair and you saw the photograph of her with the blond locks and the black dog..” is misleading, and so is any suggestion that Jodi changed her hair color as part of a premeditated murder plan.

[ To Do : make a a transcript of the evidence of expert Lonne Dworkin on this. ]
