Dec. 14, 2002 – Laci attends Christmas party alone (left). Scott says he’s working. Scott attends holiday party with mistress, Amber Frey (right). Laci will go missing ten days later. 

On Christmas Eve day, 2002, an 8-month pregnant woman went missing from her home. A large-scale search was started right away, but suspicion immediately fell upon her husband, Scott Peterson. 

This episode will be a little different for OUAC. I have a special co-host, Yolanda Norris from the Not Perfect or Functional Podcast who will be discussing the case with me. Yolanda is my sister so this is a real holiday treat for me – and I hope it will be for you too!

Also, while you may think you know this story, we’ve come at it from a different angle. First, it will be in response to the A&E program “The Murder of Laci Peterson” in which they lay out a case for the reasons some believe Scott Peterson was tried in the media and should have been found not guilty.

Second, we will do a deep into the background and psyche of Scott Peterson to give our take on why we think not only is he guilty, but that there were signs pointing to how and why Scott may have been able to so casually murder his wife and unborn son. 

This episode is Part One of a two-part special episode. Part Two comes out tomorrow! Happy Holidays!
