These are questions that have never been answered by the people who believe Scott Peterson is guilty:
How do you justify the failure of the MPD to promptly investigate:
1. the sightings of Laci walking in the neighborhood on the morning of Dec. 24?
2. the Harshman tip?
3. the Aponte tip?
4. the 3 men with the van seen by Diane Jackson?
5. the Croton watch and the woman who pawned it?
6. the use of the home computer between 8:40-8:45 on the morning of Dec. 24?Jane, the answer I repeatedly get is, "they got the right man in the end, so it doesn't matter if they made some mistakes during the investigation." And some praise the MPD for not letting themselves be distracted with this stuff, but keeping their focus on Scott, and it paid off.
These same people refuse to even admit that the Medina burglary occurred on the morning of the 24th. Perhaps if they could take their blinders off long enough to admit that, they might start to take notice.
However, I have no idea what is necessary to get people to admit that the Medina burglary occurred in the morning of the 24th. We've proven Todd could not have seen the mail inside the Medina mailbox and that he lied about where he was on the 24th. The Aponte tip links Todd directly with Laci on the morning of the 24th, and there is other evidence that Laci was alive on the 24th.
But because people can't be given a precise timeline when it all happened, and not every detail can be supplied, they refuse to take this evidence seriously. Which is quite ironic given how many details Distaso flat-out admitted at trial the State couldn't provide.
There is still a $250,000 reward for information leading to Scott's exoneration. There's also a $5,000 reward for the recovery of Laci's croton watch. With so many people out there having enough information to benefit from these rewards, it's a real shame to let them go to waste.
