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.
