Eight months pregnant with her first child, a boy she and her husband Scott peterson had already named Conner, Laci was last seen alive on December 24, 2002-Several weeks after Scott said to his mistress, Amber Frey, that he was about to have his first Christmas since his wife’s death. Because when they met Scott had told Amber he was recently widowed.
Two days before Laci’s disappearance, “I had gone there with the intention of asking Scott to straighten my Christmas tree,” neighbor Karen Servas later told the Modesto Bee. “He was a little calm. Right before he walked through the door, uninvited, he turned to me and said, ‘Oh, by the way, we’ve picked a name. We want to name the baby Conner.
At Christmas, Servas continued, “I went over there and we looked at the news. A number of people were there: Laci’s friends, Scott, and Scott’s mother and father had just arrived in town. After the news I left and Scott said, ‘Why don’t you stay? We are going to dinner. I said, “No, I don’t eat meat” because there was a turkey that someone had brought to the counter. I felt really uncomfortable. I just wanted to come home.
Laci’s remains washed up on shore in the San Francisco Bay Area in April 2003 and on the same day they were positively identified Scott was arrested for murder.
He maintained he was innocent, but a jury found him guilty of the murders of his wife and unborn son and sentenced him to death. In August 2020, the California Supreme Court spilled the sentence, agreeing with the defense that there may have been a problem with jury selection that prevented the death penalty from being properly applied. In October, the High Court also ordered a review of Scott’s conviction, and it is possible that he will get a new trial. It was life sentence December 8, 2021.
