Let me first express to the entire family of Laci Peterson that I absolutely mean no disrespect to you in my letter of disgust with The Bee's recap of your tragedy (Dec. 23 and 24,
Page A-1.). Your family has suffered enough.
This five-year recap is yellow journalism at its worst. It's over. She's gone; he's convicted. My knowledge of the case is television and newspaper coverage. Do I think he did it? I'm 80 percent convinced. But the death penalty based on circumstantial evidence? No way.
This is a 5-year-old murder story. Let it be. Your next and final coverage should be if and when he is executed.
