Peterson, Frey had frequent contact

Scott Peterson exchanged at least 18 telephone calls with his girlfriend in the nine days before his pregnant wife disappeared, according to partial phone records. He also received at least 47 calls from Amber Frey to his cell phones in the three weeks after authorities believe he killed his wife and their unborn son, the records reveal.

All 65 calls -- totaling more than 3 1/2 hours -- were made at a time when Scott Peterson insisted that he didn't have a girlfriend.

Two of them came on New Year's Eve, the day more than 1,000 people attended a commun-ity candlelight vigil for the missing Laci Peterson.

Frey made more than 50 calls to police starting Dec. 30. Some of those calls were made after police were authorized to tap Peterson's phones, and court documents show the wiretaps picked up a call between Frey and Peterson as late as Jan. 20.

Frey figures to be an important prosecution witness in the high-profile case and has been protected by private guards.

Frey was not the only woman with whom Scott Peterson had an affair with, a source said. He had at least one other girlfriend during his five-year marriage, the source said.

The phone records reflect only a portion of the calls between at least four phones known to be used by Frey and Peterson.

The 30-year-old fertilizer salesman has pleaded innocent to murder charges. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

Frey, 28, has said she met and started dating Peterson in November, not knowing he was married.

The phone records from Dec. 14 to Jan. 14 also reveal that:

Frey, a Fresno massage therapist, called Modesto police at 1:43 a.m. Dec. 30. The call lasted 22 minutes. On Jan. 28, when Frey went public about her romantic involvement with Peterson, she cited the pivotal Dec. 30 call.

She made the call immediately after receiving two calls, starting at 1:24 a.m.

In the next three weeks, Frey exchanged at least 48 calls with Modesto police Detective John Buehler. She also called the phones of police Detectives Phil Owen and Al Brocchini twice each.

Frey's attorney said she has cooperated with investigators, who tapped at least two of Peterson's cell phones.

Authorities had an affidavit sealed Jan. 22 for a "search warrant for Scott Peterson's phone records," a Stanislaus County Superior Court order shows. It is unclear whether investigators executed the search warrant for the phone records.

But court documents show that authorities did use a search warrant May 28 in connection with the case for toll and subscriber information from five telecommunications companies: AT&T Wireless, Nextel, Cingular, Sprint and SBC. The companies provided investigators with dozens of pages of information, according to court documents.

Most of Frey's calls to Scott Peterson lasted five minutes or less. Only one, on Jan. 7, was longer; it lasted 100 minutes.

Frey and Peterson called each other an average of two times daily in the week before Laci Peterson was reported missing Christmas Eve. There were at least four calls on Christmas as media descended on Modesto to cover the disappearance. On Dec. 26, while volunteers combed the Petersons' La Loma neighborhood and a park, the number of calls shot up to 14. All calls were made between 3 and 9 p.m.

Frey put in two calls, on Jan. 10 and 14, to a volunteer search center based at Modesto's Red Lion Hotel. It is not known whether she spoke to volunteers or Scott Peterson, who regularly visited the center.

Peterson apparently spoke to Frey on the phone only once on Dec. 23, the day his wife vis- ited her doctor. Laci Peterson accompanied her husband that day to have his hair cut by her sister. Authorities have said they believe Laci Peterson was killed later that day or the next day.

On the day a judge agreed to let police tap Peterson's calls, Frey spoke with him at least twice. She called Buehler's phone number eight times that day. Frey hasn't spoken to the media, aside from the initial news conference revealing the affair and another staged by Gloria Allred, her Los Angeles attorney.

Allred declined Wednesday to comment on specifics surrounding her client's phone conversations with Peterson.

Nude photos of Amber Frey posted on for-profit Web site

Nude photos of Amber Frey posted on for-profit Web site

By John Coté
The Modesto Bee
(Published Thursday, September 25, 2003, 5:12 AM)

MODESTO -- A broker of photos for men's magazines has posted nude photos of Amber Frey on his Web site, and the Fresno massage therapist has talked with her attorney about suing him.

The broker, David Hans Schmidt, said he bought the photos and release rights from a Fresno photographer earlier this year. The Web site, where Schmidt charges $19.95 for access, came to light Wednesday.

Attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Frey as she prepares to be a witness in the Scott Peterson double-murder case, said her client has never relinquished rights to the photos.

Allred said her job is to defend Frey from attacks on her credibility that may come from Peterson's defense team and elsewhere.

Allred called the Web site "disgusting and an attempt to exploit Amber simply because she may be an important witness in a high-profile murder case."

"We have advised Amber of all of her legal rights against Mr. Schmidt and anyone who is involved in the sale and distribution of her images, and she will seriously consider her legal options," Allred said in a written statement released Wednesday.

When reached by phone, Allred declined to say what options were discussed or whether Frey would sue Schmidt.

"I hope she sues," Schmidt said Wednesday while traveling in New York. "You can print that. I hope she sues me."..........

September 25, 2003 --

The other woman in the Laci Peterson murder investigation was fully exposed yesterday - after a Web site started charging $19.95 for more than two dozen racy pictures of her.

Web site operator David Hans Schmidt posted 27 pictures of Amber Frey, 28, a massage therapist who had a fling with murder suspect Scott Peterson.

The photos were taken in 1999, Schmidt said.

"She responded to a local ad for nude models," said the Internet entrepreneur.

Frey is involved in the mystery surrounding Laci Peterson, a pregnant Modesto, Calif., woman who vanished last Christmas Eve.

Her body and the remains of her unborn child washed ashore near San Francisco in April, leading to Scott Peterson's arrest........

Frey may sue porn broker over online photos

Frey may sue porn broker over online photos

BEE STAFF WRITER

Published: September 25, 2003, 07:02:55 AM PDT

A pornography broker has posted nude photos of Amber Frey on his Web site, and the Fresno massage therapist and her attorney have discussed suing the man.

The broker, David Hans Schmidt, said he purchased the photos and release rights from a Fresno photographer earlier this year. The Web site, where Schmidt charges $19.95 for use, came to light Wednesday.

Attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Frey as she prepares to be a witness in the Scott Peterson double-murder case, said her client never has relinquished rights to the photos.

Allred said she is representing Frey to defend her from attacks on her credibility from Peterson's defense team and elsewhere.

Allred called the Web site "disgusting and an attempt to exploit Amber simply because she may be an important witness in a high-profile murder case."

Peterson could face the death penalty if convicted of killing his wife, Laci, and their unborn son.

"We have advised Amber of all of her legal rights against Mr. Schmidt and anyone who is involved in the sale and distribution of her images and she will seriously consider her legal options," Allred said in a written statement released Wednesday.

When reached by phone, Allred declined to say what those options were or whether Frey would sue Schmidt.

"I hope she sues," Schmidt said Wednesday while traveling in New York. "You can print that. I hope she sues me."

Allred contends that Schmidt never has produced an original document signed by Frey releasing her rights to the photos. Schmidt contends that he has a signed, legally binding release.

Peterson Informer Convinces Ex-Cop

Peterson Informer Convinces Ex-Cop

Wednesday, September 24, 2003

The inmate who claims he overheard double murder suspect Scott Peterson (search) talking about kidnapping his wife Laci convinced the ex-cop who gave him a polygraph test that he is telling the truth, the officer told Fox News in an exclusive interview.

Lt. Melvin King (search) told Fox News' Geraldo Rivera Wednesday that he was skeptical of inmate Cory Lee Carroll's (search) story at first, but changed his mind after their two-hour session.

"Mr. Carroll was able to convince me that he truly believes what he's saying has some validity to it," King said.

King, who has dealt with numerous inmate witnesses in the past, said they typically ask to cut some sort of deal for a plea bargain. But Carroll was different, he said.

"He was just the opposite," King told Fox.

Peterson, 30, is accused of killing his wife Laci Peterson, 27, and unborn son, Conner.

Carroll, a self-described petty property criminal, told investigators he first met Peterson last November at the City Lights strip club in Fresno, Calif...........

Okay I don't get this guy at all. He had a stunningly gorgeous wife, and he cheats on her with a very ugly girl? For that alone he should be convicted!

Guys, if you're going to cheat on your wife, at least do it with a woman she'd be impressed with!

Ususally, and find it odd that Mark Dalton, Geragos's law partner, would be fired? Wonder what he did, cause it is rare that I hear that an attorney is fired, let alone one such as Mark Dalton?

I heard on Fox News the other night that Scott's parents are thinking about firing Geragos. They are unhappy with his defense of Scott.

But Gerardo said that if they do, this will surely put Scott in the mouth of the death penalty.

And since Geragos has a gag order on him, he can't come forward and retaliate.

"Okay I don't get this guy at all. He had a stunningly gorgeous wife, and he cheats on her with a very ugly girl?"

Attraction is in the eye of the beholder. There are a lot of guys who prefer cute to beautiful, and I can see a certain attraction to Amber. She looks to be the kind that's a sleeper in public but a passionate sort in private. I've known many of that type. In fact, Amber's a lot more my type, going strictly by appearance, than Laci. To each their own, as it goes.

don't agree with Geragos threat of the "mouth of the death penalty"

Hummmmm, me thinks Geragos knows the evidence is stacked against scaughty if he says that kind of statement.

Kirk McAllister would do just as well representing scaughty. He knows the ropes of the courts, just costs is an issue for him to get paid.....

Thanks for the update, RB! That's a lot of calls! Even a lot in the week b/f Laci "disappeared". That many calls... seems like Laci would eventually have known that something was up. That bolsters the theory that maybe there was finally a knock-down drag-out fight...

My experience has been that men rarely find a woman as good or as good looking as the wife on whom he is cheating. I've always said that. It happened to me and I'm still amazed at his second choice. She took him for everything he had and even got him to sign over his insurance to her when he was nearly dead. What a beauty. My sons and I were stuck paying for his funeral and stone and I wasn't even married to him then.

Oh no! Geragos didn’t say this. He can’t say ANYTHING with the gag order on him.

It was Gerardo that said it. If the family dumps Scott’s attorney’s now, it would surely go against Scott.

That’s why I said that I bet Geragos is spinning like a pin-wheel because he can’t come forward and SAY anything about what is being said. Everyone else is talking and he is not allowed to. Heh!

This happens a lot these days often it because
the husband has preverted things he can't and even
would not want to do with his wife and
the girl is some tramp who will do the preverted things
with him.

Often goes with the territory that the girls who
are willing to do preverted things are ugly because
even if they were pretty at first that lifestyle
ruins their looks.

I can't wait till the transcripts of those calls are made public. It will say alot about Snotty's frame of mind before, during and after the murders. Give us a look at what he was really up to while the search was going on and he was behaving in such a bizzare manner.

Most affairs have nothing to do with the marriage. It is in fact all about the one who is doing the cheating. Which I believe is all a part of the narcisstic behavior.

Devil - Laci's family said that the FIRST night of the search (Dec. 24th) quote "all Scott did was talk on the phone"!! You could tell they found it offensive. He really wasn't "into" the search and why should he have been - he knew they weren't going to be finding her.

She made the call immediately after receiving two calls, starting at 1:24 a.m.

I wonder who the two calls she received were from? Her sister? or Scott who might have said something that led her to believe he had done something?

I guess we knew all along that there were quite a few calls to/from Amber but seeing the numbers is really shocking. All of this while his preganant wife is missing. His insolence is amazing and I think, when all of this is put together, a jury will find this very incriminating. BTW I notice one phone conversation with Amber was 100 minutes (January 7th). Is that close to the time they started searching the bay? Anyone remember? Maybe he dropped some hints.

NE: CONVICT: SCOTT PETERSON PLOTTED WITH TWO HITMAN TO MURDER LACI

NLR- MURDER, EXTORTION AND DRUGS

by Don Gentile and Michael Hanrahan

New picture: of strip club, nazi low riders logo

synopsis

Scott Peterson met with two neo-Nazi gang members to arrange the murder of his pregnant wife Laci! That is the shocking claim of California convict Cory Lee Carroll, whose lawyer says he passed a lie detector test confirming the murder for hire story.

And an NE investigation has uncovered exclusive details of the alleged plot.

Scott told his mistress Amber Frey, "I didn't do anything to Laci, but I know who did." He was referring to Laci's disappearance. Now Carroll's story of neo- Nazi hit men could throw new light on that cryptic comment.

Carroll, 34, a Fresno motel maintenance worker with a record for theft and possession of stolen checks- allegedly met Peterson at the City Lights strip club in Fresno last November, the same month Peterson began his affair in Fresno with Amber.

As Peterson and Carroll ogled the strippers and played pool, Scott learned that his drinking buddy had a criminal record. Peterson wanted to know if Carroll knew anyone who would steal Laci's car so Scott could fraudulently collect on an insurance claim.

Carroll accepted $300 from Peterson, according to Carroll's attorney Frank Muna. The two had several phone conversations after their first meeting. And Muna says that on November29, Peterson came to a Fresno motel room Carroll rented to meet two friends of the jailbird, "Skeeter" and "Dirty", members of the Nazi Low Riders, a vicious racist gang whose members are well known in the California prison system.

Muna claims Carroll told him he left the motel room when he realized Peterson didn't want his wife's car stolen- he wanted his wife kidnapped. Carroll had no doubt that Scott wanted to hire the neo Nazis to do away with his wife.

Carroll also revealed that Skeeter and Dirty were known to drive a beige van and camper combo with orange stripes.

A witness reported she saw a tan van parked across the street from Laci's home the morning of Dec.24, the day Laci disappeared.

According to state records, Carroll was jailed last December before Laci went missing and did not get out till July. Muna said his client was unaware that Laci had disappeared and her body had later been found because the jail he was in was in lock down, meaning inmates never got to see the news or read newspapers.

Carroll contacted Muna when he got out of jail and Muna had him take a lie detector test, which he passed.

Lead detective Craig Grogan and D.A. investigator Kevin Bertalotto met with Carroll in a Fresno jail, where he is locked up on a parole violation. They cannot comment becasue of the gag order in the case.

Carroll wants nothing for coming forward in the case. There are problems with his story however. Scott's relatives say he was nowhere near Fresno on Friday Nov. 29.

Three days earlier, Scott was at Disenyland with Laci. The next day, the 27th, Scott's relatives threw Laci a baby shower. The 28th was Thanksgiving. Laci and Scott celebrated the holiday with his family in San Diego. On the 29th, the relatives say Laci and Scott left for their home in Modesto, an eight hour drive- although that does not rule out the possiblity that he drove to the Fresno motel after dropping off Laci at home.

Russ Heimerich, a spokesman for the California Department of corrections, told the NE that Carroll was in jail on a parole violation from last Dec.10 to July 2, but he was not in a lockdown situation. He was in two correctional facilities that are privately run, housing low to minimum risk prisoners.

In another new development in the case, The NE has learned that police divers recovered an anchor in San Francisco Bay that they believe was used to weigh down Laci's body.

As the NE has previously reported, cops believed Peterson made 5 anchors and he could only account for two of them.

On Sept 19, LE divers returned to the bay "to look for another anchor."

Could be really, really big! Wonder how long it'll take forensics to determine if that anchor was Scott's? And wonder if they're still looking for other body parts? That could be huge!

If they found the anchor and believe it is connected to this case, I'd guess that they found other stuff....like a piece of rope or tarp.

Wonder what those homemade anchors look like. We always used those BIG tomato juice cans.

I don't understand why Scott would tell them that he made 5 anchors if a couple were missing??

I had the clear typo. Should have been per not pre.

Vert also means go straight or up or correct.

Pervert means to change form the correct or proper.

Debase etc...

I think he kind of caught himself there. He had too many things to explain. That was early on. Evidence of cement and cement-mixing were evidently all around in various places, such as at his warehouse. Apparently he had to come up with an explanation as to why all this cement powder and the bags of the stuff were all over the place, so he told them he'd been making anchors. Bet he wishes he'd never said that, now.

Have you looked at this thread yet? That last article posted on here says they found an anchor that they think was used to weigh down Laci's body!

Maybe they found 5 BIG tomato juice cans with cement residue in his garage? (just guessing, of course!)

The guy practically handed them the evidence for solving the crime. He just never expected the bodies to surface.

He would have been better off burying the bodies 20 miles from home on a two hour time schedule. He got TOOOOOOOO clever.

I almost missed it in the article myself, while skim reading.
