Storyline

Laci Peterson is a pregnant mother to-be. On the eve of Christmas, she disappears. Her husband, Scott Peterson, and her whole family search for Laci. There are no signs of Laci anywhere. Months go on and on, and the media and public start to think that Scott murdered his wife. The Rocha family support Scott and defend him, until Scott's mistress, Amber Frey, holds a press conference admitting that she was having an affair with Scott, while he was married. Scott had told Amber that he was not married. This makes the Rocha family start to doubt Scott's innocence. Laci's mother, Sharon Rocha, always believed Scott to be a PERFECT HUSBAND, but now she doubts that. Finally the Rocha family publicly announces that they are against Scott. In 2003, Laci's body and baby wash up on shore, and she is officially declared to be murdered. The police arrest Scott and the movie ends here. Written by Brian

Tabloid Trash
22 March 2004 | by (Fairbanks, U.S. Territory of Alaska) – See all my reviews

The very first thing that's wrong with this movie is the fact that it was made. I mean, what we've got here is a movie about a man who may or may not have killed his wife. Intentionally or not I couldn't type too much and give away the ending to this story because the trial of Scott Peterson HAS NOT EVEN STARTED YET! Dean Cain gave a good performance as did many of the other characters. G.W. Bailey I particularly liked. Unfortunately the movie was rather bland and just ends with no resolution what-so-ever. This is tabloid trash that should've waited for a verdict. It was presented fairly, though, not leaning at all towards guilty (I know, I know and I do stand up for innocent until proven guilty but that is not always the what happens in the U.S. system of Injustice.) I smell a `mini-series' done by one of the major networks... someday after the trial actually starts and ends. Had this been a work of fiction, an original teleplay, it wouldn't have been so bad. My grade for this movie, for what was presented on the TV screen and not for anything relating to actual facts of the case: C
