Investigator: Peterson Wiretaps Weren’t Complete

An investigator who recorded phone calls Scott Peterson´s phone calls after his pregnant wife vanished, acknowledged today the wiretaps did not capture all

Peterson´s calls.

Peterson´s defense attorneys are seeking to discredit calls suggesting Peterson lied to his mother about following up on a tip that his wife might have been spotted in Washington state.

On January 30th of 2003, Peterson talked to a reporter about a possible sighting of his missing wife Laci in Longview, Washington.

The following day, he told his mother he discussed the tip with authorities in Longview when, in reality, he hadn´t talked to anyone there.

That came from yesterday´s testimony from Stanislaus County investigator Steven Jacobson.

But under cross-examination today, Jacobson acknowledged that Peterson actually had called the Longview police on January 30th.

It´s just that authorities didn´t properly record the call.
