The Murder of Laci Peterson
Family members, friends and ex-girlfriends describe Scott as generous and gentle. They say he didn't express emotion easilyhis strict father had taught him to keep his feelings in checkbut every once in a while something, a fight or a break up, would push him to the edge and he'd snap.
They got married in August 1997, while he was still in school. It looked like they were building a solid life together. She taught him about wine and food and pushed him to become a success. He let her take the lead, taking care of her and deferring to her, sometimes seeming almost like a henpecked husband.
But before he'd even finished his degree, there was a hint of things to come.
