Scott Foley and Dave Annable Share Their Thoughts on the Psychological Thriller Final Vision

Investigation Discovery continues its month-long rollout of movies about mayhem and mystery with the premiere of the twisted psychological thriller Final Vision, starring Scott Foley as Jeffrey MacDonald, a respected U.S. Army Green Beret doctor who is suspected in the murder of his wife and young children, and Dave Annable as Joe McGinniss, author of the 1983 best-selling true crime book Fatal Vision, which spells out his impression of the events of that fatal night.

To this day, MacDonald has maintained his innocence and is hoping for a new trial that will throw out the guilty verdict and set him free, while until his death, McGinniss stood by his belief that the doctor was guilty.

Interestingly, the two actors who play the roles have differing beliefs as to MacDonald’s innocence or guilt in line with their characters, which they shared with Parade.com in this exclusive interview.

Scott Peterson Murder Trial: 15 Years Later – Us Weekly

Nearly 15 years after the disappearance of Laci Peterson in Modesto, California, it’s a case that continues to baffle a nation.

It was Christmas Eve 2002 when the 27-year-old mom-to-be, more than eight months into her pregnancy, vanished from her seemingly perfect life while walking the family dog. Initially, her husband, Scott Peterson, reported her as a missing person, and their families never suspected he had committed the crime.

So it came as a shock to many when Scott was charged in the disappearance – and ultimately the murder – of his wife. Police became suspicious of the fertilizer salesman due to inconsistencies in his stories, and his calm demeanor throughout the investigation.

Scott and Laci Peterson: The saga that TV won’t let die

Time was when everyone in the United States, it seemed, wondered what happened to Laci Peterson, Modesto most famous mother-to-be.

The story exploded when her husband’s mistress came forward in early 2003, and again when Laci’s body and that of her unborn son were recovered on the shore of San Francisco Bay. Intrigue reached fever pitch when Scott Peterson was arrested for double-murder and sent to death row after a long, captivating trial in 2004 that spawned made-for-TV movies, books and countless headlines and hours of cable commentary.

The ruckus then died down for several years, allowing Modesto time to heal out of the national limelight.

Until now.

Truth and Lies: The Murder of Laci Peterson,” airing Thursday on ABC, is just the latest in a string of television specials about the compelling case — the sixth this year, with two more scheduled in the fall. AE Network’s “Read more at: http://www.modbee.com/news/article173093346.html
