Peterson Case Being Probed as Homicide

From Times Wire Reports

Police said Wednesday that their investigation into the Christmas Eve disappearance of missing pregnant woman Laci Peterson, 27, has become a homicide case.

Police, reversing more than two months of treating her disappearance as a missing-person investigation, declined to provide reasons for the change.

Craig Grogan, the department's lead homicide investigator, said the shift has prompted a new $50,000 reward for information that leads to her location and recovery.

Previously, the Sund/Carrington Memorial Reward Foundation had offered a $500,000 reward for information leading to Peterson's safe return home.
