The brown van that some neighbors say they saw near Laci Peterson´s home around the same time she disappeard has now been seized as police evidence. The 1987 Dodge is being searched at a state crime lab now.
Scott Peterson´s defense attorneys asked for the search. They say the van may have belonged to members of a a satanic cult who kidnapped and killed the pregnant 27-year-old substitute teacher.
Stanislaus County prosecutors say they have already looked into the owners of the van, and cleared them of any involvement in the case.
Scott Peterson is accused of killing his wife Laci and their unborn son, Conner.
