American news figure as Scott Peterson's mistress, witness at his sensational trial, and author of a book about him and their relationship called "Witness: For the Prosecution of Scott Peterson," published in January 2005. She testified at Scott Peterson's trial August 10–24, 2004.
Frey's parents divorced when she was five years old. She attended community college and worked as a stripper but subsequently earned her certificate in massage therapy. Introduced to Scott Peterson by her best friend who had met Peterson at a business conference, Frey and Peterson had a blind date on November 20, 2002 in Fresno, CA. They hit it off and he wooed her with champagne and strawberries and lots of attention and charm. He did not tell her he was married.
Their relationship grew hot and heavy over the next few weeks but in early December, her matchmaking friend confronted him about his marriage. He told Amber that his wife had died and that he would be away on a fishing trip over the Christmas holidays. But on December 29, 2002, a friend of Frey's who was a police detective told Frey about Laci Peterson's existence and disappearance. Frey then contacted police and cooperated with their investigation of Peterson, including taping some of her conversations with Scott. On January 24, 2003, at a press conference, she admitted that she had called police on December 31, 2003.
Frey's attractive slim blonde looks earned her a lot of media attention after she admitted that she had been involved with Scott Peterson. Some photographs of her in the nude that had been taken years earlier were sold to the press. She was accused by another woman, Michelle Hart, of being Hart's husband's lover while the Harts were married. And pictures taken of Amber Frey and Scott Peterson while they were dating found their way to People magazine, reportedly sold by a friend of hers.
Never married, Frey has two children, Ayiana Frey, born on February 20, 2001, and Justin Markovich, born on April 27, 2004. She had begun dating Justin's father, David Markovich in January 2003 just after she broke up with Scott Peterson. In late January 2005 Frey and Markovich were involved in a bitter dispute over visitation rights.
A movie based on Frey's book was made for cable TV and released in spring 2005.
