Eatery Once Owned by Petersons on EBay

A restaurant once owned by Scott and Laci Peterson (search) is for sale on the auction Web site eBay (search).

One of the restaurant's current owners, Fabrizio Paolozzi (search), worked for the Petersons when they owned The Shack, a sports bar and grill in San Luis Obispo the couple opened in 1998 before moving to Modesto.

Coincidentally, Paolozzi is engaged to the daughter of a man who sat on the jury during Scott Peterson's double murder trial. Peterson was convicted and sentenced to death for killing his wife and the eight-month-old fetus she was carrying.

Paolozzi and two friends — Stephen Aggarwal and Cody Scheel — bought the restaurant from a person who purchased it from the Petersons when they left the area.

The current owners hope to capitalize on the notoriety, posting it on the Web site as "Restaurant for sale Sports Bar & Grill Scott Peterson."

"It's just a way to get our name out there and let people know that the place is up for sale and to get more offers," said Aggarwal, 27. "If they're interested because of Laci and Scott ... it's not my concern."

Scheel said the eBay posting has received more than 8,000 hits in one month, but the owners haven't received any firm offers.

The business is listed for sale at $199,000. It is one of more than 100 Peterson-related items listed on the Web site.
