THE TV INTERVIEW
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.
