After Laci's disappearance, Anne opened her home to her half-brother. "The entire time that I saw him, I never saw any grief," Anne says. "I never saw any sadness. I actually never saw him looking for Laci."
According to Anne, the room Scott stayed in had a view of San Francisco Bay where authorities were searching for Laci's body. "Every time they looked in the bay and Scott was in our living room watching TV, he would get really upset and his tone was different," Anne says. "He was a little bit louder, 'Why are they wasting their time? Why are they looking there? They're looking in the wrong place.' And I could not understand why he was saying these things."
Anne says the moment that she began to think her brother was guilty came on April 14, 2004 when she called Scott to tell him that the bodies of a woman and baby had washed up in the bay. "When I told him they found the body of a woman, he just kind of sounded almost robotic: 'They'll find out it's not Laci and they'll just keep looking,'" Anne says. "It was when I said they found the body of a baby that all this kind of energy—his tone, yelling, 'Who would do such a thing?'—that just made me stop and think: Why be concerned about the baby and not the woman? I knew something was wrong."
