How were the actions devastating to the defense? I've heard that implied but I fail to see how this undermines the defense case, whatever that is.

"Jackie Peterson said the people who went into the home Friday had "absolutely no permission to be in that house. I have a lot of empathy for Sharon, but she does not have a right to go in our house and take what she wants."

"our house!" Huh?

Is Jackie Peterson's name on the deed?

It's okay for the Peterson family to go into the house any time they want, but Laci's family couldn't? These people are sick. I think someone should check to see just what it is Jackie Peterson has been inhaling from that oxygen tank!!

no, not to the defense, upon the victims family, Rocha and Grantski! Most of these breaking news items since Geragos took the case, are all coming from his defense team, and him. So, no, it is not devasting to Geragos, he called war on the this! KTVU story..

Oh, I see. I thought you meant that the Rocha's taking some of Laci's possessions would be devastating to the defense case.

Hmmm... let's see - the deed was in Scott and Laci Peterson's Name. When one dies, the title transfers (if I read that right) to the one still alive, therefore the house belongs soley to Scott Peterson, so no, Laci's family had no legal right to enter that home and start removing items...

You are correct though I don't think it makes a difference to the actual court case on either side.

Story was told that security company called police, but police said...no Jackie Peterson was the one that called police. Jackie Peterson had told Gretta on Fox via telephone that they had no problem with Rocha's going into home. Scott Peterson is not the only liar in the family.
Peterson lawyers say Rocha's defiled the crime scene that the Peterson's had been in many times ! Peterson's defense is sure winning the P.R. game...ha ha

Yeah, I don't see how it makes any difference, unless, for example she WAS killed in that house, and we later find that Laci's family removed something that could have and should have been used as evidence... But I doubt the police (I'm assuming the police were competent, but you never know) would have let them continue if that were the case...

Here is a part of it. Read the last line.

http://www.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0305/30/lkl.00.html

KING: We'll get back to our panel at the bottom of the hour. We're going to spend these moments on the phone with Lee Peterson, Scott Peterson's father, and Janey Peterson, Scott Peterson's sister- in-law. Lee, what did you make of the occurrences today of going to the house?

LEE PETERSON, SCOTT PETERSON'S FATHER: Well, I think it was best summed up by Matt Dalton. He's one of our attorneys there, and he was at the house while this was going on, and he turned to the media and he said, has anybody filed a report on this burglary? And I believe there were police officers standing right there. And he repeated that several times. Has anybody reported this burglary? I mean, this was a burglary. My -- that home and its contents are my son's possessions.

KING: But don't you have any sympathy for the mother wanting some of the possessions of her late daughter?

L. PETERSON: Larry, I do, and we had an arrangement with Sharon's attorney and with the district attorney that after we, meaning Mark Geragos and the team, videoed the inside of the home, something we needed to do for our defense, we would -- we would allow access to Sharon. She knew that. Her attorney knew that. In fact, he advised against her going in that home. I heard that on an earlier segment on MSNBC.

KING: So she broke the agreement is what you are saying.

L. PETERSON: She broke the agreement, and she uses as an excuse that she is devastated by the autopsy results -- reports on little Connor. Well, my wife Jackie was devastated, as was I. I mean, my wife could not leave the house yesterday, but instead of grieving, Sharon apparently planned this break-in. There were half a dozen vehicles at that house, and I'd like to to -- you know, Nancy says, well, all she wanted was the wedding dress and a few sentimental things. Well, I saw at least three pickup trucks full of furniture, full of cartons, God knows what going out of that house.

KING: Let me ask Janey something, Lee. Janey, what did you think of the release of that autopsy, portions of that autopsy report?

JANEY PETERSON, SCOTT PETERSON'S SISTER-IN-LAW: Well, it was very difficult. I think you, you know, when all this started, we all kind of stopped ourselves from going down that path of thinking of that most horrific, gruesome thing that maybe could have happened, and when some of these realities start coming out, you know, you are forced to face it. Then it is very difficult, and, you know, we all have children and this is just another example of -- I mean, even the day that Laci and Connor were identified, our family found out on national television. You know, it's a very difficult way to have very tragic circumstances in your life being handled. You know, we all have kids in school who are exposed to the Internet, and you know, we don't know what's going to pop up in their face at any given moment that they don't already know.

KING: This whole thing is a tragedy. Janey, naturally, you believe in the innocence of your brother-in-law.

J. PETERSON: Absolutely.

KING: His attorneys have said that they know who might do this. Do you think you know who might have done this?

J. PETERSON: Yes.

KING: And that is?

J. PETERSON: You know, all I can say is that -- is that it amazes me how far their investigation has come once they were handed the tips, and started -- and started following up on all the witnesses and the reports and...

KING: You mean your investigation?

J. PETERSON: Exactly. When Scott was arrested.

KING: Are you saying that you know how this happened? You know who is responsible?

J. PETERSON: I don't know specific details, but, you know, just in watching how their investigations has gone and knowing, you know, they encourage us in generic ways to let us know that they're definitely...

KING: Someone else did it.

J. PETERSON: Yes.

KING: Lee, are the investigators for you turning the information over to the police? Or is it just being used as a trial weapon?

L. PETERSON: I don't know a lot about that, Larry. I know that the police investigators are following our investigators around, for whatever purpose. You draw your own conclusion there, but...

KING: Do you back up what Janey said? Do the investigators tell you that they have leads that tell them that someone else did this?

L. PETERSON: Oh, yes. Yes. No question.

KING: When was the last time you spoke to Scott, Lee?

L. PETERSON: I spoke to Scott today. He was -- I'll tell you where Scott was. He was in with Matt Dalton, one of the attorneys, in fact, the fellow you showed on your little clip there, and he was preparing a list of sentimental things that he thought Sharon would like. This is the kind of young man he is. And he was doing this when he was -- excuse me, when Matt was called away because of the break-in in the house.

KING: How did Scott react to that break-in?

L. PETERSON: He was -- he said, "I can't believe it, dad, why would they do that?"

One of the attorneys last night on Larry King (I think the great Nancy Grace) said there has not been a death certificate issued yet, so legally Laci is still part owner. WHEN Scott is found guilty he is entitled to ZILCH except maybe his very personal belongings (undies etc) and the house goes to Laci's family anyway.

I think the Peterson's, Mark Geragos and especially that Dalton guy are all making this much worse for Scott because those that didn't hate him before this do now!!!!

That may be, but it's not Jackie Peterson's house either, and the fact that she calls it "our house" is totally out of line.

I haven't heard if Laci had a Will. Does anybody know?

I also watched Greta's show on Fox last night. I thought she was going to have some of Laci's friends on talking about the Peterson marriage. I don't remember seeing that. Can anyone fill me in on it. Was there anybody actually on, and if so, did they give any new insight into the Scaughty/Laci marriage?

No, by law it's now SCOTT'S house. Which means that HE decides who has the right to go in, and who doesn't... but don't let little things like facts get in the way or anything...

Silly me. I don't understasnd why the house and its contents, including Laci's possessions, should be accessible to the Peterson family but off limits to the Rochas. They are acting like it is THEIR home, and the Rochas are interlopers. Why should they have control? The Rochas certainly have as much right to enter as the Petersons. Their daughter owned that home, as well.
