Baby Connor's body was found virtually intact, outside of Laci's body and with a noose around his neck. This would imply that he was born prior to Laci's death. Leaks of the autopsy report have indicated that Laci's pelvis was intact so he could have been delivered via c-section. Was he killed right around 36 weeks? Or was it closer to full term?
It is extremely odd that these bodies show up floating in the bay near where Scott has proved he was, months later. Why would he say that's where he was if there was a possibity of the bodies being recovered there? It seems more like he is being set up. It's too coincidental. And if Connor and Laci weren't killed as soon as they were kidnapped but a few weeks later, then that would clear Scott since the police were watching him and there is no way he would have been able to dump the body later on.
Also it sounds like Laci and Connor's bodies were not that decomposed due to being in water, not like they would be if they had been in the bay for four months. That area had been searched, it seems like those bodies would have turned up much earlier unless they had been dumped there later on. Things just aren't adding up. We do not like or support Scott Peterson? He is reportedly the scum of the earth, but a murderer? We think not.
If Laci was dead and the baby was born via coffin birth vaginally, he would have come out with her cervix being intact because she could not have thinned and dilated for the baby to come out without any damage being done to the cervix.
Coffin Birth is a bizarre and extremely unlikely theory compared to the simple explanation of the clerk in Longview Washington, who said that Laci Peterson was trying to control the extreme anger of her captor with the sweet-talking claim "my husband always kidnaps me when he takes me out to dinner." It has been a quarter century since the term ‘coffin birth’ or ‘sarg geburt’ appeared in the medical literature. This old phrase was used to describe an unusual grim parody of one of life’s greatest moments. It happens when a pregnant woman spontaneously delivers her child after her own death. The gas that builds up in her decomposing body can build up enough pressure to propel the baby through the birth canal. This odd occurrence has taken place throughout history, albeit RARELY. Scientists have even found paleopathologic evidence of a case of coffin birth in Europe of the dim past, before recorded history. Today, modern embalming customs have made coffin birth so rare as to longer be described in typical medical textbooks.
Unfortunately, while everybody assumed that Scott Peterson had murdered Laci, her kidnapper escaped.
There are more than 8000 unsolved murders in the state of California and Laci and Connor will unfortunately belong in that ledger of this sad statistic until the killers are caught. It is not Mark Geragos's responsibility to find out who killed Laci Peterson and his exhuberant enthusiasm in that regard, was naive at best.
POSTSCRIPT: Unfortunately, victims like Scott Peterson are a dime a dozen.
