Casey Anthony and Scott Peterson Are Not Pen Pals

Despite reports that California death-row inmate Scott Peterson is writing letters to Casey Anthony, police say the story is not true.

Several people close to the case said Wednesday that Anthony, who is accused of killing her two-year-old daughter Caylee, had received letters in jail from Peterson, who sits on death row in San Quentin State Prison for killing his wife Laci and their unborn son Conner three years ago.

After that report was published in the Orlando Sentinel, police began investigating. They say Anthony has never received a letter from the convicted killer. The paper says the story may have originated with Anthony herself, who talked to a corrections officer about mail she received.

A spokesman for her lawyer says Anthony had received a letter from a person with the last name Peterson who lives in San Diego, but nothing from the convicted killer. The spokesman said Baez screens his client's mail and would know if any correspondence had taken place.

None of the sources who spoke to the newspaper saw the actual letters.

A spokesman at San Quentin State Prison in California says the prison does not track Peterson's mail. And the spokesman said he did not believe that any letters came from the prisoner.

The cases do share striking similarities:

Casey Anthony reported in July that her daughter Caylee had disappeared after being left with a baby sitter in June. Caylee's body has not been found, but Anthony was recently charged with first-degree murder.

Scott Peterson reported his wife Laci missing in December 2002. The bodies of his wife and unborn child washed ashore in April 2003 in the San Francisco Bay. Peterson was convicted of the killings and sentenced to death in 2005.

Both Casey and Scott maintain their innocence.

It would not surprise me if Casey Anthony claimed to be receiving mail from Scott Peterson, even if she didn’t. I mean, look at how many other things she’s lied about! She probably thinks this adds to her mystique!

Oh what a lovely, murderous family they would make. They’d have babies and then kill them!

Although there are some things alike in the two, like being sociopaths. there are marked differences. Peterson reported his wife missing quickly, he went on television, he went to vigils (while on the phone) he spoke publicly. Casey has done none of those things. She is mute. She is cold. If she had at least faked concern like Scott did we would not view her as inhuman. Her lack of any response is a huge mistake and Baez should recognize that.

All i can say is what would drive any mother to kill her own child?? I just don’t get it…is it to hard to love them or what??

CONGRATS TO BARACK OBAMA-OUR FIRST BLACK HANDSOME PRESIDENT. maybe he will get in the white house and change some things and laws for killers like Casey and Scott. why are they still aloud to breath our air, when they took it upon themselves to decide if anyone else could. (eye for eye) people would stop all the senseless killings.
