Peterson, who maintains his innocence, says that multiple people saw his wife Laci before her disappearance.
Peterson made the claims in a phone call with A&E, who are producing a new documentary on him, according to Fox News.
"I wasn't the last one to see Laci that day. There were so many witnesses that saw her walking in the neighborhood after I left," said Scott, who is currently being held at the San Quentin State Prison. Several witnesses have, in fact, come forward to say they saw Laci walking her dog after she vanished on Christmas Eve of 2002.
"Every hour I could buy to keep the search going is all solved if I bring Laci and Conner home," he added.
Scott also discussed his feelings upon being sentenced to death: "It was just like this amazing, horrible, physical reaction that I had. 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 upcoming documentary, titled "The Murder of Laci Peterson," will feature a longer conversation with Scott on his case and a discussion with his mistress Amber Frey, who proved to be a key witness in the trial.
