Greta was already on with John Gibson. I bet she knew it then. She said that Scott's attorney was going to have a problem on his hands (paraphrasing, of course).

Body weighted down with cement anchors per police.

If true, bay side LE over the past few days must have gone over the sea floor near the discovery site. Different than the place searched before???

She was so beautiful.

That's it: a beauty. Not just a pretty face, but a kind of joy and wonderment and goodness.

Police said they would hold a 6 p.m. news conference on the development, which they would not immediately disclose.

You are some fast typists.
Bout time - don't ya think.
Hopefully I'm not lumped in with the fruitcakes from the old Westerfield threads - though I was not totally convinced of his guilt at the time of trial. Since then - with the things that have come out - I'm convinced he did it - I still wonder just how. Anyway - I think this case seems really different than that one. I don't think Scott could have acted any more guilty.

No... That's Scott Ritter.

That's too bad, he was really good on Three's Company.

They must have connected something of his with the murder. It has to be beyond just that it was Laci and her baby son. Muddy shoes, location to where he said he was fishing, a smoking gun - rope or something.

KFI AM 640 reported that the Modesto Police were promised that if the bodies were Laci and Conner, that they could make the announcement.

I'm kinda leaning toward letting all the bubbas have him in prison as their girl friend. He's sooo cute (well, he was until they got a hold of him--heh heh. I'm bad.).

Err, because may it is the largest media market on the West Coast?

On second thought...why would this LA station have it first? Not a network affiliate, is it??? (I know you know telecommunications)

LE knew where he was all along as did Scott's attorney according to Rita Cosby. Scott was hiding out.

At least, now Laci's family and friends can have a service for her without Scott. I would also hope that Scott's parents would stay the hell away for their sake. After all, they have made excuse after excuse for him. Makes me sick.

**Laci Peterson hasn't been seen since Christmas Eve, when her husband says he left her to go fishing. Scott Peterson says he used a marina about three miles from where the two bodies were found near Richmond.**

And today is GOOD FRIDAY!!

She was killed on Christmas Eve

and her killer is arrested on Good Friday

oh my goodness!

Hey Kim, who were all the freepers that thought Westerfield was innocent because he just didn't look like the kind of guy who could have killed the little girl?

I'd be interested in following their reactions to this case.

His defense will say that it was an accident and that he panicked and then hid the body. It won't work, but they will try and possibly seed enough doubt to save him from the death penalty.

Which may actually be a fate worse than death for someone like him. Locked up for years or forever.

Brace yourselves for the endless procession of unemployed lawyers spewing "There's no proof here" and "Wait! How do we know she didn't dismember herself". As a means of promoting their wantoness and , thus, their effectiveness as souless defense attorneys.

Right, like the lawyers who kept insisting that Vince Foster shot himself after he drove to the park without his keys.

It sure will be interesting to hear what his defense will be, won't it?

So happy that the Rocha family has a chance of justice for Laci and Connor.

This ought to put Scott's mom over the edge, huh?

Rita Cosby says he was arrested a half hour ago in San Diego.

And Scott Peterson's mother probably has the next several dozen press conferences already lined up.

Scott (if he indeed did it)is more evil. He is cold and caluculating. Murdering his wife on Xmas eve, motivated by alleviating himself from the finacial burdon of a wife and child he did not love, and motivated by the prospect of chasing young blonde skirts wherever he could.

Andrea Yates is guilty, she did it, she needs to away from society....but I believe that she was mentally ill at the time. Voices in her head, an uncontrllable compulsion to carry out the atrocities on her kids, whatever. She called the police on herself after she emerged from a psychotic episode. She is sick, twisted and despicable. But not, in my opinion, on the level with Scott.

No one could ever think you were a fruitcake. I have one of your posts bookmarked somewhere..it still gives me chills. It was something to the effect that maybe he had gone in before, to look at Danielle was she was asleep..I bookmarked it because we soon found out he DID DO THAT..to his nieces--after you wrote that post.

You make a good point. The press has already presided over the trial and execution of Scott Peterson. Given the mass media's legendary skill at getting the story wrong at almost every turn, I'm reticent to light up the torch and find the pitchfork. Unless there was an imbedded news correspondent in the Peterson living room on Christmas Eve, I find the notion of eating what's been fed quite bland and in much need of salt.

That said, I think Scott Peterson drew more than enough suspicion with his erratic (stupid?) moves -- such as selling the vehicle and trying to sell the house while the spotlight is shining directly on him.

I hope the irony has not yet been lost on anyone -- an act committed Christmas Eve may be solved on Good Friday.

God likes to make a point. Either Peterson's falsely accused and is going to suffer for something he didn't do... or there's a little Justice (with the capital "J") in the universe...

Killing your wife and about-to-be-born son on Christmas Eve is worth lots of extra credit.

Yes, but so does keeping dead people in your refrigerator and eating them...

Nonetheless, it's all down hill from here. You've witnessed the high point - the arrest. From here on out {barring a confession} the medias purpose will be to troll for ratings by mucking up what is now so very clear. Sadly, many will obligingly jump into the abyss of denial and second guessing. If Jerry Rivers comes back from covering the "hallowed ground" in the Middle East, you'll know "it's on"!
