Garth Stapley, one of The Modesto Bee's lead reporters on the Scott and Laci Peterson case, shares the story behind the story. He describes staking out jurors in a parking garage and debunking a defense theory that Laci was captured by Satanists.
Since her daughter became one of America's best-known murder victims five years ago, Sharon Rocha has seen her son-in-law sentenced to death, lobbied for a fetal protection law that was signed by President Bush, written a best-seller and donated some of the proceeds from it to help those who search for missing people.
Modesto Bee staff writer Garth Stapley talked with six jurors Dec. 13, three years to the day after they deemed Scott Peterson worthy of death. Topics ranged from keeping alive the memory of Laci Peterson to attending her husband's execution.
