Judge seals autopsy report on Peterson and unborn son

At the request of prosecutors and defense attorneys, a judge sealed the completed autopsy reports for Laci Peterson and her unborn son Thursday.

"What we're trying to do is protect the defendant's right to a fair trial," Chief Deputy District Attorney John Goold said. "That's our major concern, the case itself. Nobody wants to see this stuff splashed across the Internet."

Court documents filed Thursday indicated that neither side had received the reports.

A statement from the Contra Costa County coroner's office said the reports would be delivered to the Stanislaus County district attorney's office within the "next few days."

The reports were completed earlier than expected, and Contra Costa officials were preparing to release them Thursday afternoon, Stanislaus County prosecutors said.

Prosecutors requested that the coroner withhold the documents until "further investigation" could be completed, Stanislaus County Superior Court documents show.

"We don't have a legal right to withhold these documents without a court order," said Jimmy Lee, a spokesman for the Contra Costa Sheriff's Department. "We have to follow the law."

Thursday morning, Judge Al Girolami ordered the reports conditionally sealed, pending a May 27 hearing on the matter. He also directed the coroner's office to provide the report to prosecutors, who would give a copy to the defense.

Girolami also ordered the remains held at the Contra Costa coroner's office until further notice.

Papers' challenge to be heard

"SORRY ON THE LARGE IMAGE, IT WAS THE BEE'S FAULT".....;o)

I am not sure if you know this or not
but here is what you do. In fact Jim Robinson has
asked that we use the dimensions in the URL's for
images that way people don't have to wait for them to
load before other printing loads on.

When you go to properties to find the URL.
Look at what dimensions they have. In this case
it was 1312 high by 2000 wide. If the picture is
HUGH! like this one was divide each number by 4.

You will then use < img height=328 src="Put URL Here"width=500 >
Don't put any spaces between the (< )and img. same at the end no space between the (500) and >

HERE IT IS! A SMALLER PICTURE.

This Geragos strategy of leaking the gory autopsy details could backfire on Scotty boy big-time. Apparently the thinking is Scotty could never do such a thing and even if he did, the police can't show enough evidence that he did. But what if the police can show that he did, then not only did Scott kill her, but did a Manson-like Helter Skelter thing on her and the baby at the same time. Then it's not just a "simple" murder but a horrendous mutilation as well. Scott is certainly capable of this, and in fact, could have even done it to make it look like it wasn't him. Another suspect is not going to be found any more than in the O.J. case. And Geragos is not going to try to acquit Scotty, he's going to try to convict the police. All of this is very predictable, typical low life defense attorney smoke and mirror tactics.
