THE TV IN­TER­VIEW

Chat - - True-life Crime Busting -

Peter­son met ABC News pre­sen­ter Diane Sawyer in Jan­uary 2003 to pro­fess his in­no­cence. It was there, on live TV, that he ad­mit­ted to cheat­ing on his wife. By then, sus­pi­cion had al­ready turned to him...

‘Did you mur­der your wife?’ Sawyer asked. He shook his head. ‘No, I did not,’ he replied.

Through­out the in­ter­view, he re­mained com­posed. When asked if he’d ever hit Laci, he said he found vi­o­lence against women ‘the most dis­gust­ing act’. He also said he’d never go into his un­born son’s nurs­ery, but pros­e­cu­tors later al­leged he used it for stor­age less than a month af­ter­wards.
