Peterson said her son has a request, too: He wants his wife's wedding ring, another diamond ring that he bought her, and a few diamonds given to Laci by her grandmother. Peterson said the rings and gems had been taken to a jeweler, for crafting into one ring.

"We want those," Peterson said. She said the Rochas picked them up from the jeweler.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So that is where the jewlery went...

Jackie's true colors come shining thru. She would be wise to simply SHUT UP. SHe sure has quite alot of "oxygen" lately!

I wonder if they will try to sell the jewelry for Scott's defense.

On Greta the other night when jackie called in, she said she had or would "leave the plants outside for the Rochas to pick up". tacky tacky. i lost all my sympathy for her then. I bet they know their son is a killer.

I am surprised the Rochas waited so long to go in and get the stuff. i am very happy that they have the jewlry.

re Jackie: if you are gonna be a witch, be a witch. don't go on tv and stretch the truth and lie.

"Scott didn't even know she had journals," Peterson said. "If she did, police have them."

I have much sympathy for the Rochas' but I can see how Laci's journals would be relevant to the trial. How is it, though, that her husband didn't know about them, but her mother did?

I wonder who the ring is being "crafted" for?

Boy, he didn't waste anytime melting down her wedding rings either.

Good morning, Bunny.

This article is sure written from the Peterson angle, isn't it?

Yeah, but WAIT JUST A MINUTE! How the HELL did her wedding ring get OFF her in the first place???????????? In such a way that Scott already knew where it was???????????? Ditto for the "other diamond ring he bought her", which she presumably also wore regularly????????

I wouldn't necessarily take that as true, that her husband didn't know she kept a journal. Jackie Peterson has been caught in several "factual misrepresentations" already.

Perhaps the journals were written at an earlier stage in Laci's life. If they were maintained recently, I can't imagine that the police wouldn't be interested in them.

Here's the excuse they will use on the ring. Her hands were swollen from the pregnancy, and she had not been able to wear her rings.

It will be interesting to know if Amy Rocha noticed if her sis had her rings on the night of the 23rd.

Thanks for the ping. This article, if true, bears out all the comments about the Petersons made by posters on yesterday's thread. There's a pattern: Jackie Peterson seems to be perfectly willing for the Rochas to have 1) non-saleable items, and 2) items which she KNOWS her own family could never justify keeping, such as the stuff from Laci's paternal grandmother to Laci.

Oh, but the exception is the salt and pepper shakers in the snail motif, of course. Gee, I'd think the Petersons could get a buck or two out of selling that at a yard sale. Big of them to let the Rochas have the salt and pepper shakers.

What was Laci's wedding ring doing OFF Laci's hand????

Her son is alive... all the Rocha's have is property to remember their daughter by...

Yes, apparently the Petersons are the primary source. I love Jackie's quote "They are not Sharon's". And she seems to be deluded that Scott is going to set up housekeeping later and needs the household items for himself ... he even wants the baby items!!!
