The first week the trial of former LaFayette Police Officer Sam Parker wrapped up with Georgia Bureau of Investigation forensics experts testifying trace amounts of Theresa Parker’s blood were detected on the rear bumper of her SUV, which prosecutors allege was used to transport her body.
Friday afternoon’s testimony was largely concerned with the two roughly playing card sized traces of blood found on the rear bumper area of Theresa Parker’s Toyota Four Runner, stored at the residence she shared with Sam Parker until just before her disappearance.
Sam Parker, a former police officer, is accused of killing his estranged wife, Theresa Parker, who was last seen on March 21, 2007.
District Attorney Leigh Patterson alleged earlier the SUV was used to take Teresa Parker’s body to another location.
