MISTRESS DISTRESS

MISTRESS DISTRESS

By HOWARD BREUER

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

July 19, 2004 -- EXCLUSIVE

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — With only a few days until Amber Frey takes the stand in Scott Peterson's double-murder trial, she has told her family that she's tired of being dragged through the gutter by people who know nothing about her.

Smut king Larry Flynt has insinuated she's a prostitute. Trial observers expect her to be portrayed by the Peterson defense as a harlot who pursues married men, and possibly as a participant in Laci Peterson's murder.

In an exclusive letter to The Post and Fox News Channel, Ron Frey says his 29-year-old daughter is proud of the choices that led to her having two children out of wedlock.

"The other day I asked her how she was holding up and she told me, 'It's so hard to hear myself criticized by people who don't know me, especially when they take issue with my being a single parent. But you can choose to remain a virgin until you're married, and then never be asked. Or you can have consensual sex and get pregnant. Then you have two choices: terminate the pregnancy, or thank God for the blessing. I've chosen to give thanks for the two wonderful children I love very much.' "

Frey wrote that his daughter's words "brought tears to my eyes. I hope everyone .............

Peterson Trial

Fabrications, admissibility discussed

REDWOOD CITY -- Lawyers in Scott Peterson's murder trial Wednesday argued over previous testimony that defense attorneys said shows a detective lied on the stand.

Judge Alfred A. Delucchi had planned to discuss a motion on that issue and other matters behind closed doors, but appeals from media lawyers resulted in a public debate.

In the process, Delucchi revealed in court -- without the jury present -- two topics at issue: whether a detective fabricated parts of his testimony and the admissibility of television interviews Peterson took part in before his arrest..............

Peterson trial resumes with questioning of detective

Peterson trial resumes with questioning of detective

By BRIAN SKOLOFF

Associated Press Writer

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Detective Henry "Dodge" Hendee returns to the witness stand Monday in Scott Peterson's murder trial as defense attorneys continue their attack on the investigation.

Attorney Mark Geragos has been picking apart the case as an exhaustive search for hard evidence that turned up nothing incriminating.

In a barrage of sarcastic questions last week, Geragos forced Hendee to acknowledge at nearly every turn that searches of San Francisco Bay yielded nothing to link Peterson to the killing of his pregnant wife, Laci........

Police misconduct alleged in Peterson trial

Defense is accusing police detective of lying on the stand

The Associated Press
July 19th, 2004

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

REDWOOD CITY -- Modesto police Detective Allen Brocchini declared early on he was going to catch Laci Peterson’s killer.

"I probably told that to everybody," Brocchini testified during Scott Peterson’s preliminary hearing. "My intent was to catch … whoever got Laci."

The case, defense attorneys suggested, became personal for Brocchini -- Laci Peterson and her fetus were dead and someone had to pay.

Defense attorneys claimed the detective even told friends of the couple he was going to "take Scott Peterson down."

Brocchini denied making the statement, but acknowledged he tried "planting the seeds of suspicion" with friends and suspected early on that Peterson did the deed.

Now, with Peterson’s double-murder trial entering its eighth week, Brocchini has become a flash point as defense attorneys try to sidetrack the case with attacks on Brocchini’s character. .........

Peterson defense mocks cop's evidence
Attorney ridicules theory that defendant made cement anchors

Peterson defense mocks cop's evidence
Attorney ridicules theory that defendant made cement anchors

Diana Walsh, Stacy Finz, Chronicle Staff Writers
Friday, July 16, 2004

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

Scott Peterson's defense attorney staged a dramatic courtroom demonstration Thursday to try to discredit prosecutors' contention that the fertilizer salesman molded cement anchors to carry his wife's body to the bottom of San Francisco Bay.

Holding a block of cement found in Peterson's boat and the plastic water pitcher that a detective had suggested was the mold for the weights, defense attorney Mark Geragos showed that the two didn't match -- the pitcher was easily larger than the weight, was shaped differently and had a dimple the concrete block lacked.

It was an awkward moment for police Detective Henry Dodge Hendee. He had testified Tuesday in the Redwood City courtroom about how police had found the pitcher with cement residue in it in the warehouse that Peterson used in Modesto, but he admitted Thursday that detectives had learned at some point that it wasn't the mold.

Some courtroom watchers said it was also a victory for Geragos in his effort to persuade jurors that Modesto police and Stanislaus County prosecutors focused solely on Scott .........

Scott to pin slay on lover

Scott to pin slay on lover

BY MARY PAPENFUSS
SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Scott Peterson was posing as a rich bachelor when he took up with masseuse Amber Frey — who went to police after she learned her lover had a pregnant wife who was missing.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - Amber did it. That's what Scott Peterson's defense is expected to argue when prosecutors call their star witness in the double-murder trial: Peterson's mistress, Amber Frey.

Several legal observers believe defense attorney Mark Geragos will try to portray the young single mom as so desperate for a husband that she helped kill her rival, Scott Peterson's pregnant wife, Laci.

"Geragos has already tried to lay the foundation that Amber Frey was somehow involved in Laci Peterson's murder," said Dean Johnson, a former San Mateo County prosecutor who is following the trial.

Geragos has already grilled Frey's pal Shawn Sibley - who played matchmaker for the Modesto fertilizer salesman and Fresno masseuse - about when the women first learned Scott was married, and not the rich bachelor he pretended to be.........

She is proud of the fact she sleeps around and doesn't take resposibility to protect herself against having children who then have no full time daddy?

She is a real piece of work

I can see how the defense won't have a hard time portraying her as a loser

If no-one asked, she must not have been looking in the right places. I have an unmarried sis like that. Couldn't figure out why none of the males in the singles bars ever asked her to marry them.

Hopefully she was misquoted. Maybe she is proud of the fact she didn't choose to kill her babies when she became pregant.

At least Amber didn't abort those two precious children of hers.

I just hope that her testimony helps nail Peterson. After that, hopefully she can (and will) fade back into obscurity.

As for Larry Flint, who yanked his chain? That POS needs to find a rock to crawl back under.

Would her father be dumb enough to write a letter like that and would her attorneys not have known? If this is true; Amber has got one fact wrong. While it is admirable that she chose to have her children; they do need a father; prefrably one that is married to their mother and lives with them.

I was listening to Scott's interviews with Jodi Hernandez and Ted Rowlands. It's almost painful listening to the weenie little voice of Scott speaking on those tapes.

While he comes off as a mild-mannered, calm guy, there is commentary surrounding the tapes in which they tell the viewer that Scott was very precise, and very domineering, in his instructions to the media people as to how his interviews were to be used. For example, he was adamant that they not be shown until after 6 p.m. Maybe the Hollywood talent scout wouldn't be able to get to a TV till after 6.

The reports of his media savvy belie the innocent, washed-out appearance he cultivated in the interviews. It appears to me that he is actually very controlling. This tells me that he is also very anxious. I've never seen an ultra-controlling person who didn't also appear to be very anxious.

One thing I wish the DA would get to is the presentation to the jury of that sign Scott made in early January, 2003, for the volunteers. In it, he refers to having "talked" to Laci, and to having "felt she could hear me". It was so obvious that he was speaking of the dead. Then to cap it off, he couldn't just sign it "Scott Peterson". He puts endless miles of distance between him and Laci by signing it, "Laci's Husband".

It's like he wanted to disappear right after Laci "disappeared". He wanted to be invisible. One has to wonder why.

After she was gone, he was in complete control: only he could bring her body back. HE was the only person on earth who really knew what everyone wanted to know: where she was. She was 100% his possession. He could now stop being anxious, knowing that it was an impossibility for her to ever have any experience that didn't involve him. Or, for that matter, to ever have any experience at all, period.

I think once she was gone, all his anger towards her dissolved, and she became some sort of sacred symbol, something he had all to himself, which no one else could ever know about or touch. I don't think he ever wished she were still alive, though.

All this control, all this peace he was feeling, all dissolved when the first of the 2 bodies was found on shore. Which, IMO, is why he never showed the slightest intention of returning north to be involved in the recovery of the bodies. Suddenly the bodies were no longer a sacred shrine--they were frightening, deadly objects which could destroy him, and he wanted to get as far as he could away from them.

"But you can choose to remain a virgin until you're married, and then never be asked."

As my mother used to tell me, guys think, "Why buy the cow if you can milk it through the fence?" Men are putting off marriage because there are more and more idiots like Amber Frey.

She might not be very moral in who she sleeps with but not killing her children even though they might have been inconvenient would make you think she's not a killer.

Are you saying that the men are not complicit in this sort of behavior?

Scott Peterson didn't put off marriage. But when he had a decent wife, apparently that wasn't good enough for him.

Good point.

She is what she is, but it just so happens that when you want to find out secrets about an unsavory guy like Scott Peterson, you have to go to his intimate associates who usually are... ta-da!... unsavory. Birds of a feather flock together.

Her so-called morals are not the question here. The question is what Scott Peterson did or didn't do.

Look at the tiny minds who have been posting on this thread b/f you made your post. They can't keep their eyes on the ball. That's how the media makes fools of so many people: they bring in so much background noise, and the more weakminded get distracted.

The question is: did Scott Peterson kill his wife and baby, or not?

Who the heck CARES about Amber's life, other than whether the man she slept with in Dec. 2002 is a MURDERER?

Her private life is obviously a mess, but I suspect the reason so many are calling her a prostitute is because she is a massage therapist. Many people associate m.t.s with the "massage parlors" which is a whole different kind of thing. When this story first broke, a lot of people made that particular leap--but so far as I've been able to find out, I think she was legit.

Yes it does.

Scotts number one motive for killing his wife was to be with Amber. He told her his wife was "dead", remember?

Geragos wants the Jury to believe that Amber was just a slut who wasn't worthy enough to "kill" for. Keep that in mind.

I think we have to get off the mindset of having PROOF that this guy Snott did the dirty deed. Anyone in the middle of the night, under the protection of darkness and the fact they are alone with the victim, can carry out a killing so that nobody is a witness. Does this mean the perfect crime has been committed or that Snott is going to walk ? Because of the fact he and Laci were always alone, one has to discount the fact that no direct proof of a homicide exists, so one has to move on as to motive and who benefits from such an act. Just because nobody saw him do it or dump off the body, his whole personality comes into play. Here Amber has stepped forward to say this creep has extensively lied to her and is probably the murderer since he has the most to gain from Laci's death, HER ! Up until now the cops can only theorize about most things but here with Amber you have a motive and proof this guy wrote off Laci long ago as he made all these plans with Amber and after affirming those plans he went out and bought a boat, the very day he told Amber about their future. The rest of the case from here are Snott's lies to the media and the cops, his inability to go out and search for her (since he knew where the body was) and the final act was when the body waa identified and Snott was headed for the border after her body had been identified, no acts of grief here. Whether it's the World Trade Center disaster or any missing persons case, you see relatives and loved ones always holding out hope until the very end then upon proof of the demise of their loved one, there is devastation because there no longer is any hope . We certainly saw this in Laci's parents but what did we see in Snott ? This is what the jury has to focus on and not all this trivia MG is bringing up in order to distract the jury's thinking and to create doubt.

I have unjustly called Larry King a prostitute!

I read "Larry King" where it said "Larry Flynt". Sorry, Larry King! You are not a prostitute! (Well, except MAYBE in some sort of metaphorical sense...)

Okay, so who is this other Larry? Wonder if HE'S a prostitute? Does he have high morals? Is he the heir presumptive to Bill Bennett as number one arbiter of America's moral IQ?

Yes, father would. He is known for speaking out...On the internet forums people savage Amber...He is simply going to cause more gossip and condemnation from internet and media "judges"....

I am interested in Amber because of her relationship to Scott. Her life , past, morals, have no interest except as they relate to this case....She isn't on trial.

She can vouch it's her voice on the wiretap recordings with Scott...Perhaps she really doesn't have anything of value to add except to verify Scott's behavior toward her..before and after Laci's disappearance.

Of course men are "complicit," by definition. They follow the course of least resistance.

Throughout the history of our culture, women have understood that they are a "civilizing influence" on men. When women give up that role, men are far more likely to be "uncivilized."

One of the biggest ironies of the women's movement is that, in the name of "equality," young women are being conditioned to behave like the fantasies of the most selfish, irresponsible men. Making themselves easily sexually available, with no strings, and no responsibility placed upon the men. How can they be so stupid?

By the way. For the others on the thread, this was just an aside. I was just struck by the stupidity of Amber's remark.

I agree that it has no bearing on the credibility as a witness. I think Scott is guilty, and I hope he "Freys."

Sorry. I couldn't resist.

Amen, amen, amen!

I want to hear VERY SOON that they've put into evidence many more of the things that we have found out--things that strongly point to guilt. No. 1 on my list right now is the sign Scott made. (You've seen it, haven't you? It's very eerie.) In it he speaks of Laci as one would speak of the dead.

And then they'll play the Sawyer interview in which he referred to her as being "at peace".

And in closing arguments, the prosecutor MUST take those two statements by Scott, the sign, and the Sawyer remark, and tie them together, and ask the jury, "WHO is at peace? The dead!! To WHOM would you speak when they are not physically present? The dead!! WHO might you 'feel' has answered you when they are not physically present?? The dead!! And ladies and gentlemen, he said these things in JANUARY, full THREE MONTHS before the bodies were found!"

I think Geragos has a plot to put the jury into a coma with his detailed cross, repeating and questioning each tiny bit of testimony and search action ..whether it is important or just monotonous...He wanted to be sure the jury understood the police found nothing in the bay despite massive searches, (therefore implying Laci was never there?)

I think the policeman will be back with the sex offender/ parolees investigation report so Geragos can imply they obviously overlooked likely killer of Laci, did a sloppy investigation, withheld this from the defense, another red herring.

By the way, I totally agree with your take on the "at peace" remark. As a matter of fact, when you so correctly pointed out that the dead are at peace, it gave me the willies.

I completely agree with you about the so-called women's movement. There certainly is a rich irony there, which you have aptly pointed out.

A further humorous irony is found when we consider that so-called feminists have repeatedly pushed passage of ridiculously nitpicking laws which purport to control how men and women treat each other. I will resist the urge to say that these "sexual harassment" laws are an attempt to push heterosexuality into a closet.

But the irony is that these "free-thinking feminists" come off sounding like overly-straitlaced Victorians. They appear to be worried that a man might somehow harm an unescorted woman by speaking to her without the proper respect. I can't help but laugh when I think how they have painted themselves into a corner.

IMO, Amber's father is kind of flaky.

The fact that he prefaces his public statements by saying, "I do not speak for Amber, nor for her attorney" tells me that they are trying very hard to rein him in.

He sounds like he wants to hog center stage. Sorry, Dad, this ain't about you. Period. And, come to think of it, it ain't really about your daughter, either.
