Detective: Laci Peterson's body dressed in tan pants, contradicting husband's account

BRIAN MELLEY, Associated Press Writer Friday, November 14, 2003

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(11-14) 12:31 PST MODESTO, Calif. (AP) --

A police detective acknowleged Friday that he didn't follow up on a tip from a woman who claimed to have seen someone resembling Laci Peterson in a park on the day her husband says she disappeared.

Under cross-examination by attorneys for Scott Peterson, Detective Philip Owen said he didn't pursue the tip because he didn't think it was "going in the right direction."

Peterson's attorneys have suggested during the preliminary hearing, in its ninth day Friday, that detectives zeroed in on Laci Peterson's husband as a suspect, and ignored other leads.

Owen said he didn't feel the woman's tip was credible because it conflicted with other information detectives had received.

The woman, an employee at the Stanislaus County Hospital, told police she saw a woman who resembled Laci Peterson walking a barking golden retriever in the park near the Peterson home at around 10:45 a.m. on Dec. 24. The tipster reported that two men walking near the woman told her to shut the dog up.

On Thursday, Karen Servas, who lived near the couple, testified that she found Laci Peterson's golden retriever wandering in the street at "approximately 10:18 a.m."

Scott Peterson told police that he last saw his wife, who was eight months pregnant, on the morning of Christmas Eve as he left to go fishing.

Laci Peterson's remains washed ashore in San Francisco Bay in April, just three miles from where her husband said he'd been fishing that day.

On Thursday, Owen said Laci Peterson's body was clad in tan pants -- not the black pants her husband reported she was wearing when he left on his fishing trip.

The pants matched a pair bought on Peterson's account at a Modesto maternity store, Owen said. Her half sister, Amy Rocha, testified she was wearing tan pants Dec. 23 -- the last time anyone other than her husband reported seeing her alive.

Prosecutors contend that Peterson killed his pregnant wife later that night or early the next morning and then dumped her body in San Francisco Bay.

Owen was the third policeman to take the stand in Stanislaus County Superior Court to determine whether the 31-year-old fertilizer salesman is tried on murder charges in the slayings of his wife and unborn son.

Detective Al Brocchini, the first detective on the case, wrapped up his third day of testimony Thursday, revealing more details about what led police to keep their focus on Peterson.

On three days in early January, undercover police officers trailed Peterson to the Berkeley Marina -- the place he said he launched his boat to go fishing........

'TEE' TWIST IN LACI-SLAY ALIBI

'TEE' TWIST IN LACI-SLAY ALIBI

By HOWARD BREUER

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

November 16, 2003 -- MODESTO, Calif. - Avid golfer Scott Peterson not only told his sister-in-law about his plans to play golf the day he allegedly murdered his pregnant wife and dumped her off his fishing boat - he had a reservation at the course that he never used, The Post has learned.

"He had a tee time of about 9 a.m. or 9:30 on Dec. 24, and he never called to cancel it. He just didn't show up," said an insider at the Del Rio Country Club, where Peterson bought a $25,000 membership months before Laci's Christmas Eve disappearance.

The club discreetly booted Peterson out after the public began to suspect he killed his wife.

"He was such an avid golfer," the insider said. "It seems unusual that he didn't show up. It seemed that something else intervened."

Although Peterson's preliminary hearing on double-murder charges enters its fourth week tomorrow, witnesses have so far offered no testimony that Peterson went so far as to book a tee time at his golf club.

In recent court testimony, witnesses testified that, when Scott reported Laci missing Christmas Eve, he told police that he had planned to play golf Dec. 24 but he decided that morning it was too cold so he went fishing by himself at the Berkeley Marina.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys are not allowed to discuss evidence with the media because of a gag order. Officials at the upscale country club have repeatedly refused to discuss Peterson.

On Dec. 23 - the last time family members saw Laci Peterson alive - Scott told sister-in-law Amy Rocha that he planned to play golf the following day.

SCOTT SIGNALS AMBER ALERT

By HOWARD BREUER

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

November 15, 2003 -- MODESTO, Calif. - Scott Peterson's defense may subpoena his former mistress Amber Frey in a bold gamble to put the prosecution's ace witness on the stand early, lawyers close to the case said yesterday. It became clear last week that the prosecution would not call Frey as a witness during Peterson's preliminary hearing on charges that he murdered wife Laci Peterson and their unborn son Connor. That hearing is now in its second week.

But when Peterson is eventually tried, Frey could supply damaging testimony about her extramarital fling with Peterson, and provide crucial motive evidence.

Defense lawyer Mark Geragos refused to confirm or deny a report by the Fox News Channel that he's issued a subpoena for the blond massage therapist. But the lawyer said yesterday he has the right to make Frey testify.

"If I want her, they [prosecutors] have to produce her," Geragos told The Post.

A legal analyst said the defense could benefit from the unconventional move.

"Up to now, it's always been believed she'd be damaging to the defense, but maybe Geragos has something on her - he was clearly upset when the prosecution said they weren't going to be calling her," said Fox News Channel legal editor Stan Goldman, a law professor at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

"I spoke to Mr. Geragos and he told me no final decision has been made," said Gloria Allred, Frey's lawyer. "There will be no decision on that until at least Monday.

Even then, she added, "the defense will still have to show .......

Judge may accept DNA evidence

Judge may accept DNA evidence

Last Updated: November 14, 2003, 03:41:00 PM PST

3:37 p.m., PST: Judge Al Girolami is leaning toward allowing mitochondrial DNA evidence in Scott Peterson’s ongoing preliminary hearing, the judge said this afternoon.

But he agreed to hear one last argument from each side. Girolami did not say if he intends to issue a ruling when court adjourns for the day at about 4 p.m.

A subhearing on mitchondrial DNA testing has been woven into the larger preliminary hearing since it began Oct. 29. The Peterson proceeding is breaking new ground because mitochondrial DNA analysis has never before been used for forensic evidence in California courts.

Two FBI experts have testified that such testing is accepted in the scientific community, while a defense expert said it is unreliable and vulnerable to contamination.

The issue is important to both sides of the Peterson case. A prosecution theory relies on a test showing that a hair found in Peterson’s boat could have come from his pregnant wife; authorities say the defendant could have used the boat to transport his wife’s body.

Peterson is charged with murdering Laci Peterson and their unborn son, who was to be named Conner.

Girolami, however, said he has “issues” with the relatively small database used by the FBI for mitochondrial DNA analysis. It has only 5,071 samples, with only 1,833 from Caucasians.

Also this afternoon, defense attorney Mark Geragos appeared to suggest that a hair from Laci Peterson could have attached to a tracking dog in her home, then fell off in the boat when officers asked the dog to try picking up the missing woman’s scent.

The hair has taken center stage of a legal battle, with disputes over whether it broke in two while in police custody or whether another hair was introduced into the original sample.

Rodney Oswalt, a state Department of Justice criminalist, acknowledged under questioning by Geragos that he did not conclude that two fragments were parts of the same hair.........

Officer tried to trap Peterson Detective testifies that he prodded suspect's friends, mistress for clues.

Officer tried to trap Peterson Detective testifies that he prodded suspect's friends, mistress for clues.

Bee News Services
(Published Thursday, November 13, 2003, 9:40 AM)

MODESTO -- A detective who spent Christmas Eve questioning Scott Peterson and the next four months trying to find his missing pregnant wife testified Wednesday about how officers enlisted Peterson's friends, neighbors and mistress in the effort to snare him.

Detective Al Brocchini said he called friends of Scott and Laci Peterson to point out news articles about his extramarital affair and a $250,000 insurance policy Peterson took out on his wife. The insurance policy information later turned out to be inaccurate.

The officer said he asked neighbors to provide tips and tried to get friends to prod Scott Peterson for details about what happened to his wife.

The remains of the 27-year-old substitute teacher and her unborn son washed ashore in San Francisco Bay in April only a few miles from where Peterson said he was fishing Christmas Eve when she vanished.

At one point, Brocchini made a note that he "was attempting to plant the seeds of suspicion" in the mind of a friend of Laci Peterson's.

The testimony came as the defense continued cross-examining Brocchini, the first detective to investigate the disappearance of the pregnant woman. The defense has claimed investigators focused suspicion on Peterson and failed to catch the "real killers."

Defense lawyer Mark Geragos also renewed his claim Wednesday that investigators neglected to notify him of surveillance tapes of the Peterson home. He called the failure "a problem of monumental proportions" and said it could lead to a request to dismiss the case.

Brocchini said he took part in discussions with other officers about themes that mistress Amber Frey should discuss with Peterson to coax a confession from him during phone calls she was secretly recording.

Brocchini said he gave Frey a tape recorder Dec. 30 and bought equipment at a Radio Shack store to help with her taping. Investigators hoped Peterson would not realize she was cooperating with them, the detective said.

Laci Peterson's mother and brother, Sharon and Brent Rocha, also ......

I knew what she wore the last time her sister saw her alive was going to play a huge part in this trial.

Laci was found wearing the same maternity pants as she wore to her sister's hair salon. HA! He killed that evening, before she had a chance to undress and ready herself for bed.

I'm wondering...do you think it's possible that Scott himself saw a pregnant woman dressed in black and white walking a dog on the morning of the 24th, and deliberately described Laci's clothes that way so that others who saw the other pregnant woman would think they had seen Laci?

"Up to now, it's always been believed she'd be damaging to the defense, but maybe Geragos has something on her - he was clearly upset when the prosecution said they weren't going to be calling her," said Fox News Channel legal editor Stan Goldman, a law professor at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

It does look like weakness on the prosecution's part not to call his former girl friend. From all the leaked "news" about their numerous taped phone calls, one might have thought those calls and her testimony would be a key element in the prosecution's case.

And that "one hair" thing is troublesome. Granted that the one hair supposedly came from a pair of pliers, still, having lived with a spouse and then our kids, for years, one hair of any of our heads could turn up in anyplace. Laci allegedly didn't know about the boat, and the pliers were in the boat, so that's not good for him, but one hair is the prosecution's great proof?

The crucial question here seems to be whether she was wearing tan pants or black pants when she was killed. It's worth remembering that at the time she was more than eight months pregnant... which means that she couldn't fit into her usual clothes and probably had bought special maternity clothes that she could get into. If she was like a lot of very pregnant women, that meant that she had only two or three pairs of slacks that she could wear in her shape (most women don't invest a whole lot for maternity clothes since they can only wear them for a month or two). Very probably she had ONLY the tan and the black to choose from, and might have switched from one to other at least once during a day.

The boat may have been new but were the pliers?

Was the hair just sitting there or wrapped entangled in the pliers?

Was it a broken hair or was the root attached?

These questions about the hair will tell the tale.

The woman, an employee at the Stanislaus County Hospital, told police she saw a woman who resembled Laci Peterson walking a barking golden retriever in the park near the Peterson home at around 10:45 a.m. on Dec. 24. The tipster reported that two men walking near the woman told her to shut the dog up. On Thursday, Karen Servas, who lived near the couple, testified that she found Laci Peterson's golden retriever wandering in the street at "approximately 10:18 a.m."

The problem is that the witness saw someone who she thought was Laci in the tan pants after Scott left for the Marina.

Yes, in the tan pants. I read it several times to make sure it was the tan pants on Christmas Eve Day.

But also notice that she thought that she saw Laci with her dog a full half hour after a neighbor had found the dog wandering. That might negate the 'Laci in the tan pants with two men' theory.

You are right. Even after reading it several times I confused the statement of the first witness and the Detective's statement about the pants. I thought that I had heard a report that the woman who saw the lady with the two men say that she was in tan pants.

I need to get my comprehension skills checked.

Laci accompanied Scott to her sister's hair salon on the night of the 23rd, right?

For anyone to have seen her on the morning of the 24th walking her dog, she would have had to have put on the same pair (or another pair) of tan slacks.

It doesn't wash. I saw a pregnant woman walking a dog past here last evening --- and I cannot tell you what she wore. I don't have any recollection of her attire.

Below is the testimony concerning Diana Campos, the nurse who saw a dogwalker and friends at 10:45am. She gave no color on the pants but the looked like sweat pants. Is that what designer maternity pants are supposed to look like?

11 Q. Okay. And she said that she thought that that was
12 on Thursday; is that right?
13 A. Correct.
14 Q. And she said to herself, "I know that girl," and
15 she then realized that that was the same subject she saw
16 walking through the park; isn't that correct?
17 A. Yes.
18 Q. She said she was sure, otherwise, she would not
19 have called the police; isn't that correct?
20 A. That's what she said.
21 Q. Okay. Now, you -- she even further described the
22 female as having hair that was short, down to about the
23 shoulders, dark in color; is that correct?
24 A. Yes.
25 Q. She said the hair was straight and that the female
26 looked six to seven months pregnant; is that correct?
27 A. Yes.
28 Q. She said she was wearing a white top and what
1311
1 appeared to be sweat pants, but she didn't know what color;
2 is that correct?
3 A. Yes.

Wait a minute. This Ms. Campos is supposed to be a nurse? And she was taking a smoke break while at work?

That doesn't sound right to me. I don't know a single "higher-level" medical professional, such as a nurse or doctor, who smokes. This is not to say that maybe some of them might not have got hooked at an early age, and maybe succumb to smoking in privacy. But I just find it hard to believe that a nurse would be casually taking smoke breaks while working at the hospital. Besides, since when do nurses have that much time on their hands when at work?

The above is not an absolute. It's just my own experience, which is all I have to go by.

I guess that is what her sister was looking for in the house the day that the police took her in; no wonder she came out crying; she couldn't find the tan pants.

And yesterday Yaelle told me that Scott got the permit to fish on the 23rd and the 24th on the 20th -- that sure sounds like premeditation to me, especially with the 24th tee time.

My husband doesn't permit smoking in his offices, but one doctor (associate) goes outside in a patio to smoke.

Husband has told me that two of the hospitals where he has privileges still provide a smoking room or area for employees, which, presumably include nurses.

Not only did he miss a tee time at a club he had joined recently but also said it was to cold to play golf so he decided to go fishing.
If it's to cold to play golf it's to cold to sit in a boat on a windy bay.

That's amusing, since virtually every place else makes people go outside and stand around looking like criminals, lol. Looks like this particular hospital, the one where Ms. Campos worked, made them go outside to the back fence. I guess we'll find out later if she's really a nurse.

And btw, I also find it odd that if she saw this conflict, this pregnant woman being cussed at by these two "dirty men", that she didn't at least alert security. But I guess we'll find out later if Ms. Campos really saw what they said she saw. And if she saw it at 10:45, it wasn't Laci walking McKenzie. (Maybe Geragos will say that even though McKenzie was back at the house at 10:18, Laci picked up some other dog and was walking it, see...)

Yes, the sister was brought to the house specifically to locate the clothing Laci wore to the hair salon. NOW, we know she didn't find it.

Yes, Scott bought a 2 day fishing license --- an odd thing to do considering he told several people he planned to play golf.

I wonder if they'll check to see if he was clever enough to have reserved a tee-off time at the club?

I think the hospital worker is full of you-know-what.

(cough, cough, cough) I don't smoke anymore (tried it, inhaled, liked it, quit when I got pregnant), however I would guess that about 75% of the nurses that I know started smoking *during* nursing school.

Oh, the stress and the pressure!

I used to take my mother to the hospital for blood tests once a week, and I often saw nurses in the smoking pavilion. This was about 3 years ago, and I was surprised to see so many still smoked.

LOL, YOU'RE a big help to my theory! Okay, so Nurse Campos was out there hacking her lungs out. (Hey, smokers, don't come and get me, I've been known to take a puff myself.)

Smoke?

Oh. You meant that other thing. Yeah, that too.

Also, imagine what Amy must have felt when she surely found any black maternity pants and white longsleeved shirt Laci owned right there in the house.

LOL! Now that we've nailed her, who or what is next?

Oh you're so right. Amy had to be totally devastated. It's all so sad.
