Final Brief in Habeas Appeal has been filed

From the final brief in the habeas appeal:

As these two thumbnail sketches show, the jury had one question to resolve: was Laci alive when Scott left for the warehouse and Berkeley Marina? If so, then Scott was innocent. If not, then he was guilty.

If Laci is alive and walking McKenzi after Scott leaves for the warehouse, he is innocent.

If indeed “Laci witnessed him [Steve Todd] breaking in” then -- regardless of whether Todd is involved in Laci’s actual disappearance and murder -- Scott is innocent.

If Conner Peterson lived beyond December 24, Scott is innocent.

If just one of those things is true, Scott is innocent.

The Albany Bulb

Here are some photos I took at the Albany Bulb on a field trip with some friends.  Notice the presence of the red algae, as Pin Kyo testified there was a red staining on Laci's clothes that might have been algae.  Notice also the very large pipes, and also the one that has rocks in it that are the form of a body.  Made us think it might have been a tribute to Laci.  I personally think along the shores of the Albany Bulb is the most likely place Laci lodged for those 3 1/2 months.  It was intertidal, allowing for successive barnacle settlements, as Laci had barnacles of varying sizes on her skeleton and her clothes.  At the time of Laci's disappearance, the Bulb was inhabited by an ant-cop homeless population, who naturally would not dial 911 if they saw a body there and have their sanctuary invaded by media and police.
