Scott Peterson, convicted of murdering his wife Laci and unborn son Conner, has a glimmer of hope for his innocence thanks to the Los Angeles Innocence Project’s efforts to reexamine his case.

The project argues that Peterson’s rights were violated during the trial and points to potential new suspects involved in a robbery near the crime scene.

They are pushing for DNA testing on evidence like a hammer and cloth from a blood-stained mattress.

While uncovering new evidence may be a long shot, DNA testing could potentially lead to a new trial.

The case’s outcome could set a precedent for other high-profile cases, showcasing the impact of evolving technology on old cases.
