Pedersen, a 33-year-old mother of three, doesn't much care for the murder suspect's ex-fiancée, Lourdes Lopez, whom she called a "dipshit" in a Dec. 3, 2004 letter. Pedersen had plenty on her mind as she wrote a Nov. 30 letter to Schwartz, including Lopez, a book deal, Richard Parrish (the Tucson lawyer and author) and Schwartz's court-appointed lawyer, Brick Storts.
Pedersen's letters were disclosed as part of the material seized during a March 10 search of Schwartz's cell at the Pima County Jail. That search was based on the odd-ball, guilt-shifting relations Schwartz allegedly cultivated with the cons, grifters and losers looking to sing in advance of their sentences. Read on, and you'll have little wonder why Storts, in a May 17 motion, is asking Judge Nanette Warner to seal the Pedersen letters:
I officially want to have your head examined. Why did you ever in a million years have an attraction to Lourdes? I feel like your instincts should have kicked in and warned you that she was not sincere. By the time you get this letter we will have discussed her Channel 9 interview. I cannot believe she is an educated professional woman. All I can think of are the 2 times she called me! The first, to warn and threaten me. The 2nd she thought I was someone else. She took me back to being a high schooler, "Bradley and I are engaged." Then I realized who it was. I felt like saying, "Oh really dumbass. That was my parents' truck he used to move out of your house you stupid twit. And this is Kristin, not Karina." I should have said it.
I need to ask you some questions about book rights. I need to talk to a writer, someone who can write a biography about you and a publisher and get it locked in so no one else will. I think everyone's attitude is "Brad's story is going to be in my book" (including your ex-girlie Lourdes). No Way! Same with the attorney Richard Parrish. He wants to write about the experience of being your lawyer.
I really like Brick Storts, Brad. He is so cool.
I love you B.A.S.
