Scott Peterson’s Last Voicemail To Wife On Day She Went Missing Has Been Released: ‘I’ll See You In A Bit Sweetie’

On Christmas Eve, 2002, at around 2:00 in the afternoon, Scott Peterson left a message for his wife Laci on her cell phone.

She was eight months pregnant at the time, and the couple was expecting a baby boy, whom they planned to name Conner.

“Hey beautiful,” the message begins before cheerfully going through the mundanities of domestic life, shopping and family obligations.

That evening, Scott would tell a friend, “Laci’s missing.” In April of 2003, the remains of Laci Peterson and Conner would wash up on the Northern California shoreline, and Scott would eventually be sentenced to death for their murder.

The new AE six-part docuseries “The Murder of Laci Peterson” goes inside the Laci Peterson murder case, re-examining the crime that shocked a nation. It’s premiere episode, which aired last night, played that final message Scott left on his wife’s cell phone, presumably after he had already

Scott Peterson: Then & Now

Scott Peterson has been on death row for 14 years. He was convicted of the 2002 Christmas Eve murder of his wife, Laci Peterson, and their unborn child, Conner, in Modesto, California. Scott was convicted without any forensic evidence, but rather on a series of circumstances that made him look very suspicious: Having an extra-marital affair, lying to his wife and her family, and being caught by police in San Diego having dyed his hair and goatee, with a car full of money, clothes, and other personal effects. He’s been languishing in prison ever since.

However, many reports from inside Scott’s cell paint quite a nice picture: a luxurious life behind bars, if you will. Scott is currently launching an appeal on his case, and with the airing of the two-part special Snapped Notorious: Scott Peterson, which can be watched online, we’re taking a look at what Scott’s life was like
