Scott and Laci Peterson's Families Argue
AP ^ | 2/27/5

Posted on 02/27/2005 8:20:14 PM PST by SmithL

Modesto -- Police stood watch over the home once shared by Scott and Laci Peterson after Laci Peterson's mother angrily confronted Scott Peterson's family as they hauled furniture and other belongings from the vacant house.

Police stood by on Saturday while the Petersons loaded the truck and then left. Officer Derrick Letsinger said authorities were called out "to keep the peace."

No one was arrested.

Neighbors reported a loud argument between Laci Peterson's mother, Sharon Rocha, and Scott Peterson's mother, Jackie Peterson, and his brother, John, as the Petersons carried belongings to a rental truck, police said.

Rocha left shortly after police arrived, but two people who had accompanied her stayed behind to photograph items loaded into the truck.

California values at their best.
Don't know about others here, but racing over to my murdering son's home to fetch a valuable ironing board would not be high on my priority list.

I would assume that the house and all possessions belong to Scott. Does killing your wife force you to forfeit all of your joint positions to her family?

Why the Peterson family is coming within a million miles of this is just amazing.

It would be nice if they would just throw this guy into a hole and the world would never have to hear from him or about him again,

From the article: Laci Peterson's estate owns at least half of the home. Scott Peterson and his parents own the rest. The home will be listed for sale in the next couple of weeks, according to Rocha's attorney, Adam Stewart.

It is a shame and frankly I do not consider his Mom a chip off the old block! They both are parents. One at the loss of a daughter and grandchild. The other the same and a son in prison. To say one hurts more than the other seems well sad.

I had heard the other day that Allred is representing a Peterson family member who has written another tell all of Scott and as usual Gloria says her story needs to be told.

Ahem, NO the all mighty buck is what is driving this family member.

That is because you have a shred of human dignity. Not everyone has this ... they don't even realize that they should be cowering in shame.

I'll say .. what a grave-digger Mrs. Peterson is. If she had any decency, after taking Scott's personal effects, she would've left with a shred of dignity.

So what is the murderer's mother going to do - have a garage sale with Laci's household goods? What tawdry behavior.
Didn't they take out a mortgage on their house to pay for Scott's high $$ lawyer? Look for Laci's things to show up on E-Bay.

Exerpt from Modesto Bee:

Rocha's attorney, Adam Stewart, said Rocha telephoned him from the house and told him about the argument with Jackie Peterson and her son. "I advised her to calm down and leave immediately," he said. "It could have been a more explosive situation." Stewart said he was surprised the Petersons showed up Saturday. He said he thought he had a commitment from one of Scott Peterson's lawyers to honor timelines to clear remaining items from the house. "But Jackie Peterson took matters into her own hands to move things out. I guess our timeline wasn't acceptable to Jackie Peterson," Stewart said. He said Rocha went to the house Saturday after someone told her the Petersons were there. Stewart said he talked to the police and requested that officers monitor what was going on. Stewart said no one but the Petersons and Rochas have a right to be on the property. He said someone with the Petersons "broke the locks on the house" so they could get inside. Laci Peterson's estate owns at least 50 percent of the home, and Scott Peterson and his parents own the rest, Stewart said. He said the home will be listed for sale in the next couple of weeks. Police said there were no major problems. "We were called out here to keep the peace, and we stood by while they (Peterson family) loaded the truck and then left," Letsinger said. Several times, Jackie Peterson, without the oxygen tank she usually carries, brought boxes out of the house and to the truck. John Peterson said the Rocha family already had removed electronic equipment, including a television and computer. Stewart said the Rochas have taken only what they're legally entitled to and what was important to them as far as Laci Peterson was concerned. John Peterson declined to say where the furniture and other items were being taken. Just before getting into the rental truck's passenger's seat, Jackie Peterson scoffed at members of the media gathered outside the house, "Is this entertainment in Modesto on a Saturday?" she asked. Scott Peterson is scheduled to be formally sentenced March 16. Mark Geragos, his Los Angeles-based attorney, filed a motion for a new trial. Judge Alfred Delucchi has sealed the motion and it will remain under wraps until prosecutors submit their response March 9.

There is no way he can PROFIT from her death; his part will go to Laci, therefore to her parents, as next of kin.

The tacky Petersons are stealing things that they have no right to.

Without letting the Rochas go through Laci's things.

I don't know how hard (or easy) that house will be to sell, but I predict that if the real estate agent puts the house up online with one of those 'interactive slide shows', it will quickly become one of the most popular websites in the world.

At least for a week or so. The ghoulish appetite of the public is seldom sated.

Is this really considered PROFITING from her death as (under CA law) he owned 1/2 of everything anyway. I would think everything would be split 50/50 between the two families, but don't know the legalities of this. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I agree with you that this activity doesn't shed a good light on the Petersons. They should have found a better way to handle things. It speaks volumes, doesn't it?

Found it...Anne Bird, Scott Peterson's half sister, has written a tell-all--Blood Brother: 33 Reasons My Brother, Scott Peterson, Is Guilty.

Is the Jackie Peterson that was arguing loudly and carrying items from the house, the same Jackie Peterson who was wearing an oxygen cannula every day at the trial?

Does killing your wife force you to forfeit all of your joint positions to her family?
=========================================

Actually, if the house was held in joint tenancy, which would be most likely, a joint tenant cannot kill the other joint tenant and end up with his/her interest in the property.

Yep. Wonder if Mrs Peterson had her oxygen tank with her when she was busy loading all the goodies into the U-Haul.

Somehow, I'd imagine that a family that can afford a $3,000 an hour attorney can afford Joe's moving company to take the $10.00 ironing board out of the house.

Peterson didn't wake up one day to become the philandering, lying, murdering sociopath he is. His upbringing has to have exerted some effect and, upon observing his mother's actions up to and during the trial and hearing about this latest dust-up, I think I see where some of it came from.

BTW Am I the only one who thinks Peterson's father is a wimp?

Don't think so. The house was an existing 'investment' presumeably co-owned with Laci. Sale of that asset would not be considered profiting from her death. In any case, I extracted a quote from the article and the article says that 'Laci's estate owns at least half' and 'Peterson and his parents own the rest'.

Sounds like it was the Rocha family who did the 'racing' over to the house. They're willing participants in this brouhaha.

...but racing over to my murdering son's home to fetch a valuable ironing board would not be high on my priority list.

I think Sharon Rocha has enough experience with Scott's mother to be ready for anything. Of course they raced over there.
