If Scott (through his mother) starts saying "she took them off to wash dishes", I think I'll scream. She had a DISHWASHER!!

She had a maid too.

HMMM! Now that's an interesting idea--I sure hadn't thought of that! IF that's what happened, I'd say THAT is some good proof of premeditation!!

Yes, so often I see where Scott did something really stupid--like calling Amber--and I think "Is he crazy? Does he WANT to get caught/convicted?" But the thing is, I'm making the mistake of not thinking as he is: in his mind, he's not going to get caught. He thinks he can get away with it--as you said.

They could be very important if she wrote of her relationship with her husband.

Amazing how some people will "go for the gold" in a tragedy.

In typical cases I would agree. But in this case with their pregnant daughter being murdered, and Scott's incredible deceit and incesent lies turning their world beyond upside down again, I think the Rocha's are justified. They tried to do it the polite way, then the legal way, and they are just sick of being victimized by Scott, his family, and now his lawyers. I don't blame them a darn bit.

If anyone is going for the gold I would say it's Scott and his family. They weren't going to give Laci's jewelry (from her grandmother) back to the Rocha's and I would bet that their plans for it were to make some needed cash not to fondly reminisce the wife that Scott murdered.

Sure did! I think that the fact that Laci's wedding ring is not at the bottom of the ocean is a very telling point. I just don't know quite what it tells, yet. I hope to find out.

Scott tried to sell the house, sold her car, no telling what might have happened to her things as they had people going in and out of the house. He showed himself to be completely uncaring about her.

Hope they left the mop, we know how Scaught loves to clean up.

Jackie Peterson is a witch and a liar like her son. Did anyone catch her lie about who called the police on Sharon Rocha ?

swollen fingers or no swollen fingers...can someone post the picture of Laci in her red pantsuit (that looked as though was taken at Christmas time)? Maybe that will show us if she had them on or not?

I'm sure the police know about the journals. They spent two days in the house, and you can bet they went over it with "a fine tooth comb".

Agree, recall that he was scared when he was first arrested, but now that he has his high-powered attorney (and his new suit) he saunters into the courtroom as if he owns it and everyone around him.

The ring story could be cleared up right away...ask the jeweler when/who brought the rings in.

If the rings and diamonds were to be reset, I know of no woman who would not go to the jeweler herself to pick out the new setting...

Just a guess,....I think Scott took them in after and was having them reset for Amber....

If there wasn't ONE thing of Laci's in the house, then why didn't Greta ask her what happened to Laci's things? This woman sounds stranger and stranger.

So do I and I still wash dishes in the sink. You don't stop washing a few dishes in the sink just because you get a dishwasher.

Jackie Peterson's lucky I'm not Laci's mother. Right now she'd be turning blue, because I would have wrapped her oxygen hose around her neck and pulled it tight!!

ROFLMAO that's a good one!!!!

Yes, but with a dishwasher (and a maid) would you wash so many dishes in the sink that you felt you should take off your rings? I do the same thing--use dishwasher, but wash some things in the sink, but I don't have marathon dishwashing sessions where I have to soak loads of dishes in the sink, so I never see the necessity of removing rings b/f washing a dish or two.

Try the Laci Peterson website for the picture. I don't know how to post pics or else I'd do it. Thanks for your help.

"Modesto police had long ago relinquished control of the home, but Peterson's defense attorneys had barred Laci Peterson's mother, Sharon Rocha, from entering the home because of concerns that such an entry might taint the crime scene."

DEVIL!!!! Read this,, now! The DEFENSE ATTORNEYS are saying the HOUSE *IS* a CRIME SCENE!!!

Jackie Peterson lies about who called the police.
Jackie claimed the security company called the police.
The police said no, that it was Jackie Peterson who called them to complain....Jackie Peterson had also told Gretta on Fox news via telephone that she had no problem with the Rocha's being in the house.
Now Peterson's scumbag lawyers say Rocha's may have planted evidence and have defiled the (crime scene?) where the Peterson's have been several times !
Peterson's defense is failing to win hearts and minds, I think. Scott Peterson is not the only liar in the family.

If one presumes Scott guilty of murdering Laci and Connor, then any attempt by Scott or his family to claim or keep items connected to Laci or Connor seems an outrage.

However, if one presumes Scott innocent, as we know his mother does, then it is perfectly reasonable that she would be horrified that the family was acting like Scott had no claim to the baby's things or gifts received on their marriage, or any other item they bought as a couple, or even Laci's own things.

I can understand and sympathise with the unrestrained anger of the Rocha's, but also the mother's goggles that Jackie Peterson has on.

Really, technically, at this point most of the items mentioned belong to Scott. It would be better if the Rochas and Petersons cataloged all the items, agreed not to disburse them or liquidate them, and then settled the matter once the trial or trials are over.

If Scott were to be convicted of murder, then naturally the proper disposition of the items would be to Laci's relatives. If not, there would probably be a civil trial that would determine if Scott had rights to the contents of Laci's estate.

Jackie sounds like she believes in that old saying: "What's mine is mine and what's yours is mine!"

I find it all so interesting how Scaughty was so hot to sell the house and Laci's SUV, but then wanted to keep the baby furniture and her jewelry. The car was sold before they even found her body. If her personal vehicle meant so little to him, and he could part with it so easily even before knowing the outcome of his wife's disappearance, one is led to believe that his concern over the dispersement of the rest of Laci's items would hold little or no interest to him, except for what he could make monetarily off of them.

Yes, Jackie sure DID say, "Sharon can go in the house any time she wants."

Oh, dear. Jackie. Your big mouth. You gave your consent to enter the house--on national TV. And you are the holder of the house's owner's power of attorney.

If there's consent for Sharon to enter, how is that a burglary? Jackie's mouth does it again!

Another reason to not believe Jackie's tale that "the security company called police" is that the Rochas went to the neighbors and warned them that they'd hear an alarm. Apparently they thought of the alarm ahead of time. So they surely called the security company, too. So the security company must have known that this was shaping up to be a non-police matter.

From the very beginning Jackie Peterson has shown her true colors, much like her spawn has done.

Y'all heard that the Petersons are asking that everyone involved in the "burglary" yesterday be arrested. Per CNN.

Other items, she said, Scott and Laci acquired as a couple - such as two white chairs and an end table. "They are not Sharon's," Peterson said.

They ain't yours either b!tch!

Mega L. O. L.!!! Guess the Petersons will now proceed to make a claim on the homeowner's insurance. "We made a police report, just like you said we should. Okay, now pay our son!" Would dearly love to know how far they got with that--if that's what they're doing.

Don'tcha LOVE that? "Scott will need the food processor to keep house." No, Jackie--you need all that stuff to sell now, to try to raise a few pennies for Scott's expenses. Oh, and the Rochas can have the "bedding" that went with the crib! Isn't THAT big of her? That's b/c pre-owned crib bedding probably wouldn't sell for much, whereas a crib and rocker would go like lightning at a yard sale.

It's all too silly for words. If they sold all of Laci's belongings, including the rings it would amount to a few days of Geragos's rate. Therefore if the Peterson's had any class at all they would have handed over all of Laci's belongings to the Rochas weeks ago. Even if their son was innocent it would be a result of his OWN idiotic selfish behavior that he is in jail. Even more reason to give Laci's belongings to her family. ENOUGH ALREADY!
