San Andreas, Ca — A foundation in memory of the late Laci Peterson and her son Conner has donated $10,000 to the Calaveras County Sheriff´s Department for the purchase of diving equipment.
In January of 2003, the Sheriff´s Department assisted in the search for Laci and her unborn son Conner. Deputies assigned to the Dive Team conducted search operations at Lake Tulloch in Copperopolis.
The bodies of Laci and Conner were later found in the San Francisco Bay. In the highly publicized case, her husband Scott was found guilty of murder.
Since the inception of the Laci and Conner Search and Rescue Fund, $130,000 in grant money has been donated to twenty-three organizations in five states.
