Laci's things in tug of war

Laci Peterson's family and friends removed truckloads of items from the slain Modesto woman's house on Friday, touching off controversy between her family and that of her husband.

Police responded to the Covena Avenue home at about 10 a.m. after a security company reported that the alarm had been triggered, Capt. Greg Savelli said.

Officers determined that Laci Peterson's family and friends were removing items that belonged to Laci, said Savelli, who added that officers documented what was taken.

"We're treating this as a civil dispute over property," he said. "It was clear to the Police Department that this was not a burglary.

Peterson's husband, Scott, 30, has been charged with double murder and faces the death penalty in the killings of his 27-year-old wife and their unborn son, Conner.

Savelli said the fallout from Friday's property removal "was best handled between the families and their attorneys."

Adam Stewart, an attorney for Laci Peterson's family, said the family had been in contact with Scott Peterson's defense team, who had agreed to allow Laci's mother, Sharon Rocha, to go through the house on Tuesday. She was to be accompanied by representatives of the defense team, and all items taken were to be photographed and videotaped.

Scott Peterson's parents and lawyers expressed outrage that the Rochas did not follow the agreement.

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."

Rocha did not appear to be among the packers. Calls placed to the Rocha home were not accepted.

Seven vehicles loaded

Among the items loaded into seven vehicles were a crib, a rocking chair and a box with Graco printed on the outside. Graco makes such products as strollers, highchairs and car seats.

Laci Peterson's family announced Wednesday that it had hired attorneys to help recover items from the house. A list included her wedding dress, jewelry and Conner's crib.

Jackie Peterson told The Bee that the security company notified her by telephone in San Diego County that the house alarm had been tripped.

The property removal appeared to take Scott Peterson's defense team by surprise.

Matthew Dalton, an attorney with lead defense attorney Mark Geragos' law firm, drove to the house and asked reporters if someone had reported a burglary.

Dalton went to Stewart's Modesto law office Friday morning and dropped off some items requested by the Rocha family, Stewart said.

Monday, the defense team moved other items, including what appeared to be gifts, to the Modesto office of defense co-counsel Kirk McAllister, for transfer to Laci Peterson's family. But the items had not been picked up by Friday morning, McAllister said.

Stewart said in front of the home that it would be "ridiculous" to suggest that the Rochas broke into the home.

"I apologize for it coming down to this," he said. "This is not the way we operate. This is for Laci, for Conner and Laci's family. It is not for the media or Mr. Scott Peterson's defense in any way, shape or form. It's depressing that it's come down to this."

Stanislaus County Chief Deputy District Attorney John Goold said prosecutors had no legal authority over the house.

"It's not a crime scene," Goold said. " This is a civil problem between the Rochas and the Petersons."

The house title is in Laci and Scott Petersons' names, county records show. In such a joint tenancy, when one titleholder dies, the title goes to the other.

MODESTO -- Laci Peterson's family and friends removed truckloads of items from the slain Modesto woman's house Friday, touching off controversy between her family and that of her husband.

Police officers were dispatched after a security company notified them that the alarm at the Covena Avenue home had been triggered, Capt. Greg Savelli said.

Officers determined that members of the Rocha family and friends of Laci Peterson were removing items that belonged to the slain woman and documented what was taken, Savelli said.

Judge cites Peterson right to fair trial in denying report access

Judge cites Peterson right to fair trial in denying report access

BEE STAFF WRITER

Published: May 31, 2003, 07:16:56 AM PDT

A Stanislaus County judge on Friday ordered that arrest and search warrants remain sealed in the case against Scott Peterson, who is accused of murdering his pregnant wife and unborn son.

Superior Court Judge Al Giro-lami's ruling also ordered the autopsy reports for Laci and Conner to stay sealed.

Thursday, District Attorney James Brazelton reversed his position and asked to have the autopsy reports made public, and the matter is set for hearing June 6.

Brazelton's about-face came after part of the fetus's autopsy report was leaked to the media. Prosecutors said that portion was clearly "skewed in favor of the defense."

Defense attorneys, coroner's officials, police and prosecutors have denied leaking the information.

Friday, in his ruling on all the documents, Girolami said releasing them "might irreparably harm the continued investigation into this criminal matter."

"Despite the fact that the complaint has been issued and a suspect has been arrested, the investigation and search for both incriminating and exonerating evidence in this matter continues," Girolami wrote.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys argued that releasing the documents could impede Peterson's right to a fair trial and damage an ongoing investigation.

Girolami agreed, saying in his ruling that releasing the documents "might result in the evidence being destroyed and witnesses being reluctant to step forward."

A group of newspapers, including The Bee, are seeking to have the documents unsealed.

Right to view reports argued

Charity Kenyon, an attorney representing the newspapers, argued that the public's right to view court documents was fundamental in an open legal system.

MODESTO, Calif. (AP) - A judge ruled Friday that an autopsy report on the deaths of Laci Peterson and her unborn son should remain sealed along with other search warrant and arrest records.

Superior Court Judge Al Girolami said releasing the information could hamper the murder investigation and prejudice public opinion before a trial begins.

Girolami is scheduled to hear more arguments June 6 from prosecutors preparing a murder case against Peterson's husband, Scott Peterson. Prosecutors on Thursday asked that the autopsy reports be released to the public. They argued that media leaks of the reports are biased toward the defense.

Girolami also ordered that leaks of sealed information stop and indicated he would consider a gag order to stop the prosecution and defense teams from talking to the media.

Scott Peterson, 30, is accused of killing his wife and unborn son, whom the couple had planned to name Conner, last December in their home. Laci, 27, was eight months pregnant at the time. The bodies washed ashore in San Francisco Bay last month.

Contra Costa County authorities concluded their autopsy report earlier this month, but did not disclose the cause of death.

Several media outlets have released details of the coroner's report, and a spokeswoman for Laci Peterson's family members said Thursday they were "devastated" at hearing autopsy reports without warning on television.

The leaked reports indicated the unborn son had plastic tape wrapped around his neck and a significant cut across the shoulders.

Meanwhile, friends of Laci Peterson removed several personal articles Friday from the single-story Modesto home where she and Scott Peterson lived.

MOM'S MOVING MOMENT

MOM'S MOVING MOMENT

By HOWARD BREUER and MARSHA KRANES

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

May 31, 2003 -- Laci Peterson's mother - shattered by the graphic details leaked from the 25-page autopsy of her unborn grandson - yesterday began removing her slain daughter's belongings from the home she had shared with her accused murderer husband, Scott.

Sharon Rocha, accompanied by several friends and relatives, was seen at the Modesto, Calif., house removing the rocking chair Laci had bought to use when she nursed her infant son, as well as unopened Christmas gifts, clothing, chairs, lamps and artwork.

In doing so, she ignored the advice of her lawyer, Al Clark, that she wait until he, Scott Peterson's lawyers and court officials work out the procedures to be followed when she entered the house.

Modesto police arrived while Rocha was there, and she and her entourage left a short time later after packing seven cars full of Laci's belongings.

Hours later, lawyers representing Laci's family and Scott Peterson started haggling over whether removing the items was legal.

Scott Peterson's mother, Jackie, expressed outrage that the items had been removed since Laci's family had "absolutely no permission to be in that house."

Scott Peterson has pleaded not guilty to killing his wife and their unborn son.

Laci's family said Wednesday that they had hired lawyers to help them retrieve a baby crib and jewelry from the home.

Meanwhile, Clark told Fox News his client's anger over the grisly revelations leaked from her daughter's and grandson's sealed autopsy reports drove her to go get her daughter's possessions.

A family spokeswoman said Rocha was "devastated" by the reports describing how the near full-term fetus of her grandson Conner had plastic tape wrapped around the neck and a large cut across the chest when he was found in the shallow waters of San Francisco Bay last month.

Yeah, the Modesto police stood by and watched so it MUST be ok...

I seem to recall lots of instances where the police just 'stood by' and let things happen - such as the destruction of the 911 Memorial Fence, since it was 'Private Property', - that must have ben legal, too. or maybe how the police stood by and watched Christopher Kime get beaten to death in the Mardis Gras celebration in Seattle - I guess that means beating people to death is leagl too...

My point is, just because the police stand by and watch something happen, it doesn't mean it's not a violation of the law - it could mean it's policemen who are not clear on the law... sad to say, that's happening more and more in recent decades :(

"The thing that makes me not like what they did (aside form my own twisted sense of legalism) is that they had a list of 22 items, which they paired down to 16, of things they wanted of Laci's... 7-8 truckloads of stuff makes me seem to think they took a LOT more than they originally wanted. That raises all kinds of alarms in my head..."

Thanks for pointing this out......it caught my attention, too.

In the red pant-suit photo it appears as though her finger is elevated over her diamond ring on her ring finger. Although it should show when she crosses her fingers. Wish we could get a bigger look at this.

The police made a list of everything they took out of the house; they only took things that belonged to Laci.

If one of the things on the list is "Grandma's wicker chairs," that's four BIG chairs.

To hell with the games, and the mother-in-law, and all that stuff - if they couldn't reach an agreement with the family, they could have taken the probate court route - I would have respected them for that. Now, to me, they look like a bunch of meterialistic looters of the dead...

There would have been nothing left.............. You don't know scum, don't you? lol

No. Because he told the police to stand by and let someone enter another person's home and remove property that didn't belong to them. THAT is why he's a moron. He aided and abbetted theft...

if you had several types of vehicles, in all 7, lets say, a suburban, couple of pick up trucks, various sizes, some cars, how much do you think in furniture can they legally hold? Not a heck of a lot if bulky items, and those items were of the items listed? Take into consideration, no tarp or ropes on the vehicles for tying down the items, and the ability to see from the rear view mirror is necessary too. I think you, rightly so, reading way into this. Good though too. keeps sanity....LOL....

Besides, media was there filming the event. You saw?

***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. *****

How do you like this one, Mass?

they had a list of 22 items

And just to keep it FAIR, Geragos had that list of 22 things; of those items they requested he delivered TWO OF THEM, two lamps and 3 tiny Christmas presents.

Why didn't he give them all 22 things on the list, including her wedding dress? Think Scott wanted that for "old times sake?" Think that had something to do with her murder?

Well, just because they had a list of 22 things they wanted, doesn't mean they have to get everything on the list - maybe a few of the things they wanted were gifts they gave to both Laci AND Scott - in which case, I don't see how they have any claim to those types of things (such as the China, the Glass Memento Box etc...)...

The Wedding Dress though, for example, should have been handed over pronto...

Whether or not it belongs to them is a matter for the court decided, I suspect.

But since the Petersons WERE moving stuff out of the house, I think they had every right to go in and get precious items that they might have been scared they would never see again.

The very idea of the Petersons DOLING out a few items at a time is disgusting. How dare them.

".....they only took things that belonged to Laci."

Well, I'm still a little hazy on what's considered individual property and what's considered joint property in a situation like this. Do you have a link to a source that lists the precise things that were deemed to belong solely to Laci?

Yes, I do. She said there wasn't anything left in the house that was Laci's. That had to send Sharon over the edge.

Plus the fact that Jackie said that "it was the first we've heard of it," "they could have gone in any time," while they KNEW they had been BEGGING to get in there for over a month.

Plus, Geragos intended to go with them, and film them while they were there! Imagine, they wanted privacy and peace to mourn their daughter and HE intended to horn in on that, too!

And for Geragos' associate to not just insinuate, but SAY on national TV that they probably planted evidence is beyong the pale.

No, I don't. But I think you're parsing. A college diploma is not joint property -- especially when the person who gets it is probably the one who killed her.

This is true. In the begining the Rochas were very supportive of Scott and his family. Can you imagine what is going through the Rochas minds right now? He had a girlfriend, sold her car, tried to sell the house. Allegations from friends that Scott hit Laci? Besides grief, they're replaying everything to see why they were so blind about their daughter's husband.

There were a couple of things that Scott did like smirk at Laci's memorial service, and the odd choice of words that he used in that thank you note that seemed odd. However people do odd things when they're in shock or grieving. I cut the guy some slack until he started selling things.

The Rochas have a lot of class. The Petersons don't have any, and I wish they'd remember that Laci's baby was their grandson also and show some respect for the dead. They have a right to be supportive of their son, but can't they do it another way?

Geragos knows things haven't been going his way, ie the satanic defense scenario). I think he wanted to yank the Rocha's around a little bit and see if he could create a diversion from his obvious problems delivering on witnesses and other promises he has made to prove Scott's innocense.I think he know by reneging on the Tuesday date, and invoking war talk,with the Rocha's attorney, it would goad Sharon Rocha into action. I think he knew Sharon's state of mind, and as I said earlier he would gladly sacrifice her sanity and wreck her peace of mind, for his defense effort. To him its just another casuality in attempting to get Scott off.

News Anchor: "the body of Laci Peterson and her unborn child washed up on the shore today."

Scott: "Hmm, hey pops...wanna go play golf in La Jolla today, it's such good weather."

yeah, he's clearly innocent.

And Scott is taking her jewelry and giving it to other people.

Where's the fairness?

BTW, if CA is like NC, gifts given TO HER are her property and not joint property.

I'd rather they have it than he give it away to his new girl friend. Sue them.

I was thrilled to see the Rochas turn the tables on him.

Sorry, I think the Peterson's and Geragos are a bunch of 5150s.....

All I can say, I have seen what happens to people in divorce cases. relationships that don't quit until you see the light bulb click on at the end, other family member distress cases, and the bottom line, I can tell just exactly the stresses the Rocha's are going thru, pure hell!

and the crazed notion of actions Jackie, Lee Peterson and the Geragos/McAllister teams are doing, pure shameless. Maybe that explains why McAllister hangs his head long when in these court hearings. What SOBs....

getting all fired up.... ;o)

At least Sharon and family won't be charged with double murder for taking Laci's things. Scotty won't need them. No matter if legal or not legal, I am very glad Sharon got some of Laci's things. If the Petersons weren't insane she would have probably been happy with a few things. my guess is she would puke looking at anything that was truly just Scott's.

My sister had a wedding dress ripped out of her hands by an ex as they were going through a divorce and she was pregnant as well. (Iranian ex)

So you can only imagine how contentious it's going to get with murder involved.
