Geragos finds this case intriguing because he thinks the accused is innocent? Ha, methinks what Geragos is intrigued by is the status of his own rep, which took a hit when Scott "I'll Dye My Hair & Fool Everybody!" Peterson was convicted. Good luck, Geragos - you'll need it.

I Pray that God gives Geragoes the strength to defend Paul, an innocent man! The REAL victim here is Paul Zumot, not Jennifer. [Portion removed due to disrespectful comment or offensive language] God bless Paul Zumot, his family and Geragoes!!

Stop DV, you claim that Geragos is intrigued by this case because of $$$$, [Portion removed due to disrespectful comment or offensive language] At least he makes an honest living.

I think it's interesting that Lisa asserts that Geragos makes an honest living. I guess it depends on the definition one is using...

Lisa, do you think it's in good taste to post the things that you are the way that you are? There are certainly ways to demonstrate your support of the accused w/out disparaging the victim - that's in very poor taste.

I agree with Lisa 100% . [Portion removed by Palo Alto Online staff]. God bless Bulos Zumot, his family and friends. [Portion removed by Palo Alto Online staff]. Maybe you all should be smart for once, go hire a PI and try to find who really is behind her demise rather then wasting taxpayers money!

Lisa-
Regardless of guilt, it's not possible here to be more of a victim than Jennifer. She's gone.
