- The Latest Installment of the Hit AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY Franchise Debuts Wednesday, November 29 at 9/8c on ID -

(Silver Spring, Md.) - On Christmas Eve in 2002, 9-1-1 dispatchers in Modesto, California receive a particularly harrowing call from local resident Ron Grantski - his 27-year-old, expecting stepdaughter, Laci Peterson, is missing. Investigators and family frantically search for the pregnant woman, retracing Laci's every move in hopes of finding the missing mother-to-be and her unborn son, Conner. Laci's college sweetheart husband, Scott, chronicles the day for police; but when details of the timeline don't quite add up, detectives turn their suspicions on him. Now, 15 years after Laci's shocking disappearance, America's leading true crime network Investigation Discovery (ID) goes back to explore each twist and turn of this heart-wrenching case in SCOTT PETERSON: AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY. Created in partnership with American Media, Inc. (AMI) and Jupiter Entertainment, the latest installment of the record-breaking AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY franchise delves into the mysterious disappearance of Laci and the disturbing dark side of Scott, the monster behind her murder. The two-hour special, SCOTT PETERSON: AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY, premieres Wednesday, November 29 at 9/8c, exclusively on ID.

"The disappearance and murder of Laci Peterson and her unborn son, Conner, is, perhaps, one of the most heart-breaking, traumatic true stories of all time," said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. "This latest installment of AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY will transport our viewers back to each pivotal moment of the investigation and trial, unraveling a very distorted web of lies that reveals the monster Scott Peterson really is."

"Once again, ID is able to leverage the unrivaled archives and news-gathering resources of American Media, Inc. to present this tragic story in a new and illuminating way that will break fresh ground and offer never-before-seen details of what remains one of most captivating American murder mysteries of the last 50 years," said Dylan Howard, Dylan Howard, Chief Content Officer of American Media, Inc.

SCOTT PETERSON: AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY is a thorough, unabridged look at Laci Peterson's disappearance and murder from top to bottom. From the initial missing persons' report filed, to the shocking discovery of Scott's double life, the two-hour special unravels the twisted web of lies, deceit and betrayal behind one of the most compelling homicides in US history. SCOTT PETERSON: AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY features all-new and exclusive interviews with those closest to the case, including Laci's stepfather, Ron Grantski; Scott's ex-girlfriend Amber Frey; and Laci's friends, Stacey Boyers-Birdsong, Lori Ellsworth-Haints and Rene Tomlinson. Additional notable interviews include Jon Buehler and Al Brocchini from the Modesto Police Department, who were the lead investigator and lead detective, respectively, on the case, and Cliff Gardner, Scott's appellate attorney.
