I predict that Scott Peterson will be found not guilty.

Well, I am truly sick and tired of heariing about Scot's SORRY a$$.
We are bombarded in the media about this trial DAILY. It's a good thing we have an election and weird weather to detract from the case's proceedings


I think he wil be found guilty...guilty...guilty. I base this on the taped conversations between Scot and Amber Frey. I've heard enough to see he had a lot to hide. He also proved he acted in a manner a worried and loving husband would not.

Amber Frey's testamony has only made this trial that much more sordid. I surely can't imagine that Peterson could ever be painted in a worse light than he is at the hands of Frey. His telling her that he was calling from France to explain his inability to spend time with her. Calling her while the candlelight vigil was being set up.

He later admits to Amber that he lied about being out of the country at all. His goose is cooked.

First of all, thank you for overcoming your nausea long enough to contribute. At this point, I'm just not sure how the jury will react and it is my own experience with the courts that second guessing judges and juries is an excecise in futility.

However, I agree with you, regardless of whether or not he is convicted, his "goose is cooked." Unlike OJ, he has no large community of supporters. Convicted or not, his reputation and credibility is shot.

There has been one interesting side note to this case. The Sherriff's Department has reported that he gets an inordinate amount of mail for a prisoner and that much of that mail is from female admirers. This is not unusual for men who are suspected of killing females. It is said to be especially true of Ted Bundy.

Does anyone here, especially females, have any insight into this.

It all has to do with the "BAD BOY" image.

Good observation. I think this should be an essential component to consider when evaluating the "Battered Woman Syndrome." It never ceases to amaze me that the men who treat women the worst are never lacking in women to abuse. One of the great paradoxes of life, I guess.

You would think that the feminist movement would be disseminating information telling women how to avoid slime like this. As long as abusive men keep getting there jollies with truckloads of women, there will be no shortage of abusive men.

I have never understood why these women go for the "bad boy" image. BUT, from what I have heard through this whole ordeal, Scott never hurt Laci prior to this. Could one man be so addicted to sex that he would kill his wife?

I don't know, Saylor. Nothing in this case makes sense. I'm really beginning to think that Peterson is capable of killing his wife if that what it might take to continue feeding his id.

I think that if the prosecution is accomplishing anything it is that Peterson is so sick that he could and would try to plan the perfect crime to keep from haviing his style crimped and in the absence of evidence to the contrary, he is the most obvious perpetrator.

The audio tapes prove pretty conclusively that Peterson's mind is about as twisted as it gets and if he would attempt to convince Amber that he was globetrotting while the hunt for his wife was going on, then he would be twisted enough to dispose of his wife.

The physical evidence may be sparse, but they are building a motive. He was obsessed with Amber and he would go to any length to be with her.

I don't know if that's enough to convict him, though. Oh and let's not forget my hunch.

I wrote a long response to this thread yesterday and got a power-outage.
Right when I was going to post it!
Anyways here's the short version....
Like I said before I believe Scott is guilty of murder and he's going to walk.
I don't think he's worried about his reputation and will probably flee the country when he's released.
In my opinion......
Scott was feeling really bored and tied down. It would only get worse when the baby arrived. Like another poster stated "He's a bad boy" and likes the ladies. Amber was just another *ship passing in the night*. How he got a rid of all the evidence is beyond me. He never told Amber that he killed his wife. All Scott is guilty of... is being a liar.
Maybe someday on a far-away island Scott will have one too many and spill his guts to another *ship in the night*.

I'm sorry you lost your post. That happened to me the other day.

Your post confused me so I quoted the two statements I found contradictory.

Can you clarify this for me?

Sorry about that GradyPhilpott..... I'm in a hurry, because we just might lose electricity again.

What I meant was that "I" believe Scott is guilty of the murder. However, due to the lack of solid evidence the jury will find him *NOT GUILTY*. You can't convict someone on just being a liar.

Did he do? No doubt in my mind. Will he be convicted? Not a chance. Why? Let me count the ways:

1. This is California - it took them two trials to convict the Menendez boys.
2. No physical evidence - people want their CSI follow the blood droplets evidence.
3. Garegos is a master of the "throw mud until something sticks" philosophy.

My theory on the murder itself. Laci found out about Amber - she and Scott argued and he strangled her in the heat of the moment. He wrapped up her body, sunk it in the bay and reported her missing.

The only chance of justice for this woman is if the DA can pull off a closing argument similar to that of the Skakel trial.

I'm beginning to come to this conclusion myself. You seem to have pretty good grasp of this trial, the California culture and jurisprudence, in general.

Thanks.

Laci would have had to find out...Scott & Amber talked on Scott's cell phone every day.

Question - remember when they arrested Scott. He had dyed his hair, grown a gotee, had a passport and had $10,000 cash with him. Why hasn't the DA brought that up? (or have they?) This doesn't make him look like an innocent person. AND...if he was innocent, why would he have all that? It sure looks like he was trying to skip town.

I'm not sure if this was brought up in the trial. Peterson states that he dyed his hair to protect himself from the media. He had the cash because he had closed some sort of cash deal, I don't remember what. He actually had his brother's passport, for reasons I don't remember and he was near the border because he has relatives there and I think that's where Frey lives.

This is not an innocent guy. His whole life was a lie. The question is, did he kill his wife?

Thanks for bringing these matters up.

So, it seems he had answers for everything! The sad part of this whole deal is that he will probably profit from all of this. I am sure that he gets something for the movie that was made. He will probably do interviews (from jail if convicted) and of course, he will write a book. I mean, look at Bill Clinton. He's not a murderer but he is a liar and a cheat. He had an affair while he was PRESIDENT of the US and wrote a book about it. Now, he is making a fortune. $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $

Well, it looks like Geragos will get to cross-examine Frey next week. It really looks like the prosecution's case has been made. I don't think they can impugn Peterson's credibilty anymore. We really don't know anything more about him than we did before Frey took the stand. We just have a clearer picture of how twisted Peterson is.

I don't think Gerogos will do anything more than point out what a tramp Frey is and sit down. If he has a bombshell to drop, he better do it soon.

I don't think the prosecutions will add anything new.

saylor, I don't beleive it was the "addiction to sex" that "drove" Scott Peterson to kill Laci,...... I beleive the reason's Scott killed her is;
1) Some men find very pregnant women (their size) disgusting and gross, they know it's the fault of the infant growing inside the woman that makes the woman's body this way.
2) Scott did not and does not want any biological children of his own,..... he has stated that in a few of the phone calls to Amber.
3) He did not want to share the center-stage in his and Laci's life with anyone, not even his own baby.
4)He apparently prefered being with a non-pregnant, slim woman than with a very pregnant wife.

It is possible that Scott did tell Laci about his affair or someone that was friends with Laci may have seen Scott and Amber together and felt that Laci had a right to know that Scott was cheating on her, let's say this is the case and this friend of Laci's told Laci that Scott was having an affair, then Laci confronted Scott,...... Scott admits to the affair and Laci tells him to get out, that she is filing for a divorce and taking everything in the divorce, plus she will see that Scott will pay a nice sum of money every month for child-support.
Scott becomes totally enraged at Laci because of the threats, specially the threat of paying for a baby he never wanted to being with, he loses all sane thoughts and in his rage he killed her.

I don't think Scott was addicted to sex,........ it was the viagra in his pocket that he was popping, that caused his "flag" to stand at attention that was addicted to sex,

I'm pretty sure that Scott Peterson did it. 99.9%.

But that is an interesting thought about her Mom and Step-Dad.

Scott is such a liar about things but they don't have any solid proof on him that would link him to the murder

I really haven't followed this whole murder/trial from the begining, I know alot of people have.

I just find it amazingly curious how when the defense finally gets their opportunity to question the girlfriend, "There's been a potential development in this case." At the request from the defense attorney:

www.courttv.com...


I wonder if they located some info on Frey in regards to her other relationships.

I read somewhere after her married ex- boyfriend's wife gave birth, she went to the hospital to look at the baby.

Why would Frey do that? Isn't that kinda ballsy?

(If I can locate the source of that article, I'll edit/post it here).

Ballsy? I'd say that was sick. Was she stalking him?
What the heck was going on in her trampy brain?
STRANGE!

Ok, ok, sick and ballsy! (Actually, that's pretty scummy!)

I agree, was she stalking him?
