Has anyone looked into the Scott Peterson case beyond what the media presented?
I highly suggest reading the book "Presumed Guilty" by Matt Dalton. He was one of Peterson's former attorneys.
Now it's been a few years since I have given it a read, but I was absolutely fascinated by it. I even made everyone in my family read it. Some things
I got from this book were that
1. The police had it in for him from the beginning, and threatened to eventually "get him"
2. Peterson never voluntarily took out a $250,000 life insurance policy on Lacy. He in fact, tried to get her a $100,000 life insurance policy, but
Lacy complained and wanted to match Scott's. They did so 20 months beforehand while purchasing their house. It's recorded, but the police lied about
it to the Rocha family.
3. There was also a long history of pregnant women found dead in the bay area. They were mutilated the same way as Lacy. Hands and feet missing, head
missing too. Check out Evelyn Hernandez. And there was actually a drawing of a dead pregnant woman dismembered in the same way Lacy was dismembered
right near where Lacy was found. Satanists were commonplace in this area.
4. In Scott's defense, Lacy's Ob/ Gyn testified that she suffered from herpes since she was a teenager, and thus they had trouble with getting her
pregnant. Scott was the one paying the costly fertility treatment. Scott was the one making his son a new room.
5. There were multiple (6 I believe) credible witnesses that saw Lacy, at the time that Scott took of for his fishing trip, including a retired police
officer who saw her.
6. Police photos have shown items in slightly different locations, which suggests tampering.
7. There was a van going around the neighborhood at the time which was harassing a few women for about a month or so. This van was also seen by the
retired police officer, right near a pregnant lady walking her dog.
8. Scott was in Mexico after the killing for business. If he wanted to flee, he could have done so then.
There is much more in the book, I can't recall everything. Like some of the defense's testimony was thrown out in court because it was
"irrelevant" or something to that extent.
But all things aside, there is no proven motive, no cause of death, no conclusive evidence, NOTHING.
And if I was Scott, and the police were out to get me from day one, and it looks like everythings going to hit the fan for him, I would in no question
try and get out of the USA also. I have no faith in the justice system through my own experiences.
Television is a tool of mass distortion. And Television most definitely convicted this man instead of an untainted jury.
