They seemed like the perfect couple. Scott and Laci Peterson were charming, dynamic and good-looking college sweethearts in love. On Christmas Eve, December 24, 2002, Laci mysteriously vanished from their home in Modesto, California. She was 27 years old and almost eight months pregnant with a son who they planned to name Conner. In a shocking twist that stunned a community experiencing loss and a riveted nation, Scott was arrested less than four months later and eventually sentenced to death in 2005 for the murders of his wife and unborn son. After Scott Peterson has spent 12 years on death row and as his legal team awaits answers to both an appeal and a legal petition alleging he was denied a fair trial, ABC presents a documentary on the murder of Laci Peterson featuring new reporting and interviews.
The Murder of Laci Peterson features ABCNews archival footage, including exclusive excerpts from interviews with Scott Peterson before he was arrested and Scott Peterson's father and mother, Jackie and Lee Peterson, before Scott was convicted. The documentary includes new interviews with Sharon Rocha, Laci's mother; Al Brocchini and Jon Buehler, former Modesto Police Department detectives who investigated the case; Nancy Grace, Geraldo Rivera, Dan Abrams, Court TV's Beth Karas and other reporters who covered the murder and trial extensively. The special also will reveal never-before-seen home video of Laci.
