4:21 pm
4:22 pm
today on segment to the notorious california murder case that put scott peterson on death row, peterson's wife lisi and their unborn son connor were killed just before christmas in 2002, i interviewed him in 2003 before his arrest. now there are questions about
4:23 pm
the evidence used to convict him.>> we the jury find the defendant, scott peterson guilty . >>reporter: when scott peterson was found guilty of double murder and sentenced to death 13 years ago his family began the long process of trying to get him a new trial, his mother jackie passed away three years ago but the rest of his family and his legal team continues to fight for his freedom. >> ultimately the goal is justice for lacey and connor we have an unsolved crime and everyone thinks it is soft and it's not. might daughter is eight months pregnant and she's been missing since this morning. >>reporter: she was eight months pregnant when she disappeared from modesto in 2200 is messy. they searched through the peterson's home and her story touch people around the world, hundreds of volunteers help to search for the mother to be that they did not know but had
4:24 pm
fallen in love with.>>reporter: initial searches turned up nothing in her family believed she had been kidnapped while walking the dog. >> please bring our daughter home. >>reporter: police immediately folk and is -- focused on scott because of the way he acted the night she was reported missing. over the next few days while investigating in searching the home they focused on scott but lisi's family came to his defense. >> we love scott, he loves lisi, they love each other. >> there is no evidence whatsoever that points to him, they were way off base assuming that. >>reporter: a few weeks later everything change, peterson it turned out had a girlfriend name amber frey. >> scott told me he was not married, we had a romantic relationship.>>reporter: before going public she worked with police recording more than 12
4:25 pm
hours of phone conversations with scott peterson. >> i could care for you. >>reporter: on new year's eve just before a vigil for lacey scott was on the phone with amber pretending he was in paris. >> are you there? i am near the eiffel tower. >>reporter: the tapes proved pivotal at trial and michael wister number 4. >> he was not in paris and he was casually speaking to his lover on the phone what they were looking for his wife? >>reporter: it took jurors eight days to reach the verdict . >> i would not be surprised if his conviction was not overturned. >>reporter: there was never forensic evidence tying him to the murder. no scratches, no fire evidence no murder weapon, nothing that ties him to the crime.
4:26 pm
>>reporter: the night before she disappeared she talked with her mother by phone at 8:30 pm, prosecutors believe she and her baby were killed sometime later that night or the next morning. they believe scott then transported her body in the back of this pickup truck to his warehouse where he had an office and storage shed, they believe he moved the body into the 14 foot fishing boat which he then drove to the berkeley marina to dump his wife and son in the san francisco bay. even prosecutors admit they are not sure how he did it. >> i've never seen a case where the prosecutor did not prove how, when or how.>>reporter: the evidence shows that at 8:40 am the morning she was missing someone was online at the peterson home, shopping for women's clothing and a sunflower umbrella stand. lisi had a sunflower tattoo on her ankle. then at 10:30 am scott logged onto his warehouse computer for 26 minutes sending a holiday
4:27 pm
email greeting to his boss and looking up how to assemble a woodworking tool he recently purchased. >> at the time according to the state kid killed his wife earlier that morning and she was in the truck, outside on a public street and he was inside on the internet looking up how to send holiday greetings, that is a psychopath. people that think he is a psychopath that is taking you and the rest of the family for a distorted ride by not admitting guilt, what do you say to them? >> i guess i would circle back and ask them what piece of evidence makes you think he is guilty and be specific. >>reporter: the most damning evidence is that lisi and her son's body washed up where he was fishing. >> that is the probable cause but his alibi was so widely publicized. >> of course it is
4:28 pm
incriminating, everyone knew where he was an anyone killed lacey knew where to put him. >>reporter: his attorney and family believed he was convicted because of his affair with amber frey and the audio recordings played for the jury. >> how did you grapple with that not knowing how he did it? >> my believe is that was a typical soft kill, strangulation in the home. >> without leave evidence? >> no. the fact that no one can tell you how he did it is not nearly as important as the fact that they can tell you that based on all of the evidence and testimony he did do it.>>reporter: the peterson case is the subject of three new documentaries. a witness said he observed a pregnant woman being put into a van in the third titled trial by fury that makes the case that scott could be innocent is expected for release next year. >> if you think scott peterson
4:29 pm
is innocent and should be released, you are wrong, he should not be released and he is not innocent.>> his family and attorneys think otherwise if they think he did not do it who do they think dead? >> they think she was kidnapped and maybe interrupted a burglary that took place across the street from their home around that time on christmas eve or she was out walking her dog, there were reports of her being out walking the dog and then she was kidnapped and then they believe because she was kidnapped in the case got so much publicity that the people that had her knew what to do with the body and throw it in the bay because it would frame scott peterson. that is what they believe. what is interesting is everyone thinks he did it but when you look at how he did it, that is what the family says, if you think he did it, tell us how?
4:30 pm
we were just discussing that when you start to connect the dots it is difficult to do. >> coming up we talk more about this on the verdict with our leave -- legal expert about the ballot measure that would expedite the death penalty process and how it will affect scott peterson and other cases on inmates from death row. and the ceo of grubhub is feeling the heat, it is a food delivery service and we will look at his letter to employees that some believe threatened from supporters, coming up after the break.
4:31 pm
4:32 pm
4:33 pm
the ceo of the food delivery startup grubhub says he welcomes employees of all political beliefs, this is after a firestorm after a postelection email, the companywide email said i absolutely reject the nationalists and hateful politics of donald trump, if you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation. he said that to all of his employees and he said he was not asking for people to resign, he says he intended the message to just say that his company does not tolerate discrimination in the work place. can anything be done for trump supporters? michael cardoza is here. it seems like a knee-jerk thing
4:34 pm
from the ceo who blasted out but how can this come back to haunt him? a young ceo with his heart in the right place, we do not want that type of attitude in our company but it is not something you say to everyone because if you voted for trump you will fill very uncomfortable there and you could say it's a hostile work environment and i am out of here and now i am suing you or if they fire you later they've certainly given a good cause of action to come after him so the heart is in the right place but not very smart. speaking of donald trump is the president-elect and will be president soon. is he exempt as commander-in- chief expected they have to push legal actions back? >> the best i can do is go back and say remember paula jones worked in arkansas and brought a lawsuit against president. clinton for sexual offenses
4:35 pm
while he was the governor. the supreme court went through that and said perfectly fine, it is outside the scope of your job and not within the job description. that lawsuit can go forward. the women that are thinking about or are suing donald trump will have a clear street to go down or an avenue to go down to sue him because he is president they can go. >> the death penalty, californians voted to expedite the process, what happens to those people like scott peterson that we were talking about that are on death row? he has both of his appeals already briefed and filed and rebutted. i think they're waiting on one state rebuttal and they are locked and loaded, does this affect him? to see up to go backwards? how will it be handled? >> it was a great piece and you
4:36 pm
and i went through that, we were both down there during the scott peterson trial and to have lived that is something i certainly will never forget. as i looked at your piece today i thought away, that brings up memories. does he have to go back and do other things? no, they will move forward with the appeal and with the proposition 66 did is streamline the process. keep in mind that once a death penalty verdict comes back then they have to appoint an attorney and under today's circumstances the supreme court believe it or not takes three, to five years just to appoint an attorney. >> what this proposition did was open up and say if you do appeals than the guesswork, you will do death penalty appeals. i do not know how they will get away with that because a lot of attorneys are going to say i am not qualified to do death
4:37 pm
penalty is and i'm not doing that. it is not indentured servitude and they will have problems without me want to get it done within five years, can they get it done within five years expect it is a possibility and there is due process but there will be a lot of legal arguments and not does not obviate the supreme court of the united states because after we are throwing california than the person convicted says let's go to the supreme court now. >> it will be a work in progress and we will have to see how it pans out. >> it will be interesting and we hope it doesn't turn out like texas where the executed two people that were later exonerated. that's why you don't want to go too fast, you cannot undo that. thank you michael cardoza. to san jose where there was a suspected drunk driving crash at forth in santa clara right outside of city hall, one pedestrian was killed in a tv news crew was injured. a suspect did drunk driver in a white pickup crash -- caused
4:38 pm
the crash and an elderly man walking in front of city hall was killed in a tv reporter in a news van suffered minor injuries. >> it is more upsetting to realize you have so many pedestrians in this area and a lot of vehicular traffic and obviously something bad happened here and caused a collision and it's possible that the pedestrian was an innocent victim. the driver of the car involved was not hurt. anti-isys is making strides in iraq is the battle wages on the fight comes amid accusations of war crimes by syrian rebels. and updates to overcome. tracking the weekend forecast with some raindrops and temperatures on the downtrend with all of the clouds, we will see you back here in just a minute.
