This is the second consecutive article regarding the Murder of Laci Peterson on this website. It has been almost 15 years since she and Connor (her unborn son) were killed. Scott Peterson - Laci's husband and Connor's father - was convicted of these crimes in November 2004.
What follows is a very telling signal described by Laci's mother, Sharon Rocha.
SHARON ROCHA (beginning at 7:43 in the above video): "I remember, the last time I saw Laci. She and I were sitting side-by-side. Scott was sitting on the floor. And we were watching TV and she said, 'The baby was kicking'. So I put my hand on her stomach because I never felt him - kick. She leaned over to me and she said, 'Mom', she said, 'Mom, Scott doesn't like to do this.' She said, 'I've asked to - you know, feel my stomach when - ahum, when the baby kicks and he never wants to touch my stomach'.
That really, really bothered me. And that was the last time I saw her."
Scott Peterson's behavior pattern of not touching and/or not wanting to touch his wife's stomach is profound. This is almost unbelievable distancing behavior and signals an enormous lack of affection for his unborn child and a diminishing affection for Laci.
Obviously, we have the advantage of knowing the unfortunate course of events. Yet, if you could travel back in time and speak with Laci Peterson (or if you ever come across a similar scenario), you would tell her that this specific lack of touching of her abdomen and/or Scott Peterson's lack of desire to feel his baby moving - are both dramatic signals of "affection drop-off". These tremendous red flags - tell us that (at best) Scott was actively in the midst of an affair - and he was already was planning on abandoning Laci and Connor. Moreover, this astounding lack of affection for both his wife and son were dramatic warning signs indicating the increased likelihood that they were both in danger.
