SN 2 | EP 24 | Scott Peterson: Unraveling the Lies
Massage therapist and single mom Amber Frey had had her share of romantic woes. She was looking for a genuine and honest man, who was ready for a serious commitment. So when she met charming and handsome Scott Peterson, she thought he just might be everything she was hoping for. He was smart, successful, and most importantly, he was great with her daughter! Amber fell hard, and Scott was equally smitten. But one day, Scott confessed that before meeting Amber he had been married, and recently lost his wife. Not wanting to pry into an already-painful subject, Amber merely asked Scott if he was ready for another relationship so soon. Scott assured her he wanted nothing more than a beautiful future with her. As the holidays approached, Scott prepared to travel to Europe on business, and gave Amber a PO. Box in Modesto for her to send him mail. Amber thought it was strange, after all, Scott had told her that he lived in Sacramento. Feeling uneasy about Scott's whereabouts Amber decided to ask a friend, a Fresno police officer, to run a little background check on Scott Peterson. And when the background check was completed, the news was horrifying. It turned out that Scott was still very much married to a 27-year-old woman named Laci who was eight months pregnant. Worst of all, Laci had been missing since Christmas Eve, and everyone seemed to think Scott was involved! Amber's hopes and dreams of a long lasting relationship with Scott were shattered... and she would soon find herself as a starring witness in one of the most highly publicized and horrific criminal cases the nation had ever seen. Scott was eventually found guilty of murdering his wife and unborn child, and sentenced to death by lethal injection. Amber knows her name will always be associated with the horrific murder case, so dating has been tough. She spends her time and energy being a single mom and focusing on her family and her faith. She has not spoken to Scott since 2003.
