The body of Laci Peterson may have been dumped near where her husband said he went fishing the day she disappeared.

That's according to a tidal expert who testified today in the Scott Peterson murder trial.

But the US Geological Survey scientist says he can't be absolutely certain. He could only say it's the "highest probability" that Peterson's body was dumped near where Scott Peterson went boating in San Francisco Bay.

The defense quickly attacked the findings as conjecture.

Peterson's attorney also noted that the expert looked into whether Laci Peterson and her fetus could have been placed into the bay separately. That scenario would support the defense theory that the baby was born alive -- proving that Scott Peterson couldn't be the killer.
