Scott And Laci Peterson’s Romance Before He Murdered Her When She Was 8-Months Pregnant

Laci and Scott Peterson seemed like a picture-perfect couple. In 2003, the Modesto, California couple became household names when the pregnant 27-year-old disappeared. Her body was found washed up on the beach. Scott became a suspect and was eventually convicted of first-and second-degree murders of his wife and unborn son.

But who were Laci and Scott before the crime? As In Touch Weekly shares, the two met as college students while they were attending California Polytechnic State University. She as an ornamental horticulture major and he was studying agricultural business. They initially met at a party but ended up bumping into each other at  Pacific Café in Morro Bay, a restaurant where Scott was working. It was Laci who made the first romantic move by giving him her phone number. He then called to ask her out.

The first few dates didn’t go all that great. She was interested in many of his hobbies, like

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
