It's been more than 15 years since Laci Peterson vanished on Christmas Eve in 2002, but people still have questions surrounding the pregnant brunette beauty's death — like what did her house look like? Watch the video above for details on the home she shared with Scott Peterson, who is currently sitting on death row after being convicted of their murders.
According to People, the 1949 bungalow-style house was purchased by Gerry Roberts for $390,000 following Laci and her unborn son Connor's murders — more than double the $177,000 price the Petersons had first paid for it. By 2006, Gerry had been trying to sell the house for five months and was facing foreclosure when an unnamed married couple stepped in with interest. They later bought it for just under its $350,000 asking price.

A now 45-year-old Scott recently spoke out about what it was like to learn he had been convicted in the case. During a phone call to his sister-in-law Janey back in August, he said, "It was just like this amazing, horrible, physical reaction that I had," he revealed of hearing he was convicted of first- and second-degree murder. "I couldn't feel my feet on the floor. I couldn't feel the chair I was sitting in. My vision was even a little blurry. And I just had this weird sensation that I was falling forward — and forward and down and there was going to be no end to this falling forward and down, like there was no floor to land on. I, I was staggered by it. I had no idea it was coming."
The phone call marked the convict's first public statements about the horrifying case in more than 10 years. In 2012, Scott's lawyer filed an appeal of his sentence, arguing that the jury was affected by the widespread coverage of the case and that the evidence was insufficient. The court must respond to the appeal by the end of this calendar year, otherwise, he is slated to be executed by 2021.
