Back on the block

The house where Laci Peterson was probably murdered is back on the block. Gee, I can't imagine what would keep people from wanting to live there.

Seriously, though, I can't help but think of all the dreams Laci had when she and Scott bought this house. They put in a pool, she planned to raise her kids here. The California real estate market, even in Modesto, is a tough nut to crack for a young couple, and she must have been overjoyed to start putting down roots.

Little did she know how infamous the little green house would become. Almost every room in the home has been pictured in tabloids, true-crime books and other sources. Even the Modesto Bee has a photo slideshow. Although I know the furniture in the home is not the Petersons', it gave me a little bit of a jolt to see one of our tables -- the black one with the individually stone tiled top -- in one of the rooms.
