LACI & CONNER
FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS
   ANNE ELIZABETH GRADY-BIRD
was born as "Baby Latham" in July 1965 in San Diego County
to unmarried
Jackie Latham.  A private adoption was arranged,
just as was for her half brother,
Don Chapman a year earlier.

She was raised in San Diego attending local schools. 
She was the second adopted child of Geraldine &
Thomas Grady who had also adopted a son, Stephen
earlier.  They also have two birth children of their own.


Anne located her birth mother, Jackie, not too many years ago.
Scott was
unaware of his "new" siblings until just before he and Laci
were married!   Laci & Scott attended Anne's 2nd wedding, to Tim J. Bird .
She lives in Berkeley, CA with her husband and has two young sons.


After her brother, Stephen decided to search for his birth parent's,
Anne decided to do the same.  She located Jackie sometime around 
the time that Scott met Laci.  Until that time, Scott  was unaware of Anne.


She has finally come forward.  On July 11, 2003, (story below) she
appeared on the news, stating she loved Scott and that he was a caring
and loving person.  She also stated that Scott had stayed with
her several times. And that they continue to write to each other.


According to a source close to Anne, Stephen, Anne's  brother, had
worked during High School with none other than
JOHN LATHAM PETERSON.
Both Stephen and John were unaware they shared the same sister!

Here's the news script from KOVR, Sacramento, from Noon. It first
ran last night on their 10PM News, but there was no script posted.

SCOTT'S SISTER

FOR THE FIRST TIME SCOTT PETERSON'S HALF-SISTER IS SPEAKING
OUT.   SCOTT SPENT A LOT OF TIME WITH HIS SISTER, ANNE, IN
HER BERKELEY HILLS HOME TO ESCAPE ALL THE MEDIA.


EVEN THOUGH SCOTT IS CHARGED WITH THE MURDERS OF HIS WIFE LACI
AND THEIR UNBORN SON CONNER... ANNE SAYS SCOTT IS INNOCENT.


"
I absolutely love and adore Scott... He is a wonderful, is a wonderful person."

IT COULD BE SAID THAT ANNE'S EXISTENCE WAS A PETERSON
SECRET.  SCOTT
DIDN'T LEARN ABOUT ANNE, OR ANOTHER
CHILD HIS MOTHER,  JACKIE GAVE UP FOR ADOPTION
... UNTIL RIGHT   BEFORE HE AND LACI GOT MARRIED.


ANNE SAYS EVER SINCE SHE WAS REUNITED WITH SCOTT
AND THE FAMILY, THE TWO HAVE BEEN VERY CLOSE.


BECAUSE THERE IS A GAG ORDER, ANNE COULD
NOT DISCUSS SPECIFIC
DETAILS IN THE CASE.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Also, someone on the CourtTV forum who saw this local report said
that Anne's brother Steve was also on and said that she has been
upset ever since Laci went missing. The poster also wrote that Scott
sends Anne letters written on little golf pads with little golf pencils.
