For the Prosecution of Scott Peterson
Add to Wish List
Amber Frey's life was full of blessings: an exciting new
business, a beautiful home, and most of all, her infant
daughter, Ayiana. But Amber had been through some unhappy
relationships, and she longed for a true and loving partner.
In November 2002, she went on a blind date with Scott
Peterson. He was handsome, charming, thoughtful, and
romantic. Best of all, he was single and ready to settle
down . . . or so he said.
Their connection was immediate. Over the next few weeks,
Amber and Scott grew closer and closer. Scott won her over
with his warmth, humor, and intelligence, and he even won
the heart of little Ayiana. Before long, he began to speak
of the beautiful future the three of them were destined to
share as a family.
Soon enough, however, Amber began to suspect that Scott
Peterson might not be the man he claimed to be. On December
9, he broke down in tears and told her that he had been
married, but had "lost" his wife. This was weeks before Laci
Peterson, eight months pregnant at the time, was even
reported missing. Scott Peterson hadn't lost her, but
clearly he was planning to.
Suddenly a relationship that seemed full of promise was
turning into Amber's worst nightmare.
Amber launched an investigation of her own. The moment she
was able to confirm her worst suspicions, she contacted the
Modesto Police Department, in northern California, and
offered to do whatever she could to help. She began secretly
taping her conversations with Scott, pressing him for
information but never letting on that she had heard the news
of Laci's disappearance. Those conversations became the
basis for the prosecution's case against Scott Peterson for
the murder of his wife and unborn child.
Amber's whole world was turned upside down in the process.
She lost her privacy, as every detail of her life was
scrutinized by the media, who couldn't seem to get enough of
this tragic, heart-wrenching story. But she soldiered on,
looking deep inside herself and drawing strength from her
