Police Sergeant's Wife Goes Missing
Husband's History May Present Clues


POSTED: 6:02 am CDT October 30, 2007
UPDATED: 11:26 am CDT October 30, 2007


BOLINGBROOK, Ill. -- State Police are searching for the wife of a southwest suburban Bolingbrook police sergeant.

"Because he's one of our officers, we thought it would be better to have an independent agency investigating," Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar said of the state's involvement in the disappearance of Stacey Peterson.

It was not clear how long Peterson, the 23-year-old wife of Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, has been missing. Illinois State Police Trooper Mark Dorencz at first declined to comment on the matter, but later said the state is handling the case as a missing persons investigation.

The Bolingbrook police department said Drew Peterson was not scheduled to work Monday. A message left for him at the department went unreturned.


According to an Illinois State Police news release -- which spelled her name Stacy Ann Peterson -- she was last heard from at 10 a.m. Sunday. She was supposed to help a friend do some painting, but never showed up.

Stacy Peterson is described as a white female, 5-feet 2-inches tall, about 100 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. She was last seen wearing a red jogging suit. She has a tattoo of a blue and yellow carnation on the small of her back and a scar across her stomach, the release said.

According to the release, Stacy Peterson frequents Joliet Junior College and her family reported her missing at 4 a.m. Monday.

Drew Peterson's previous wife, 40-year-old Kathleen Savio, was found dead in the dry bathtub of her Pheasant Chase home in March 2004. Drew Peterson and Savio were divorced and he was returning their two sons to their home after a weekend visit, but no one answered the locked door.

Peterson went to a neighbor's to call a locksmith. Once entry was gained, the neighbor went inside and found Savio's body in a waterless bathtub.

The investigation revealed Savio drowned. Her fingertips showed pruning from being submerged in water and her hair was wet when she was found. While there was no water in the bathtub, it may have drained out over time, as the plug was down, investigators speculated.

A coroner's jury ruled the death accidental. State Police investigated that case as well. No charges were filed.

According to one official, Savio was Drew Peterson's third wife, and Stacey Peterson is his fourth.

More than 20 years ago, Drew Peterson was fired from the Bolingbrook Police Department after the village board of police and fire commissioners found him guilty of disobedience, conducting a self-assigned investigation, failure to report a bribe immediately and official misconduct. He had been indicted two months earlier on charges of official misconduct and failure to report a bribe. Peterson was working under the auspices of the Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad at the time. Indictments alleged he solicited drugs in exchange for information about his agency.

The charges later were dropped. Special prosecutor Raymond Bolden said at the time that the charges were not provable.

Drew Peterson won reinstatement with the department in March 1986. Judge Edwin Grabiec ruled police and fire commissioners lacked sufficient evidence to find Peterson guilty of the charges.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call ISP Joliet District at 815-726-6377.

Yes, I agree about the hubby...but it seems odd to me... still may be a connection. Not impossible, but probably not, but maybe...

Bolingbrook Police Sergeant's Wife Disappears
Sergeant's Previous Wife Died In '04, Case Ruled Accidental


BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― State police are searching for the wife of a southwest suburban Bolingbrook police sergeant. The young mother went missing from her Bolingbrook home sometime after Sunday morning.

When family members last talked to the 23-year-old Peterson Sunday, they agreed to meet that day to paint a house. She never showed up and her sister filed a missing person report because she never went a day without talking to Peterson, who is a mother of two small children.

"Because he's one of our officers, we thought it would be better to have an independent agency investigating," Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar said of the state's involvement in the disappearance of Stacy Peterson.

Cassandra Cales, Peterson's sister, believes there is no possibility she walked away.

"If she did, she'd call," Cales said. "She knows my number. She has it memorized."

Peterson was studying to be a registered nurse assistant. Her husband, 53-year-old Drew Peterson, is a patrol sergeant with the Bolingbrook police.

Cales said Drew Peterson told her he did not know where Stacy Peterson was.

"She left, left him and wasn't coming back, taking a vacation," Cales said. "But I don't believe she would leave the kids."

The couple has two toddlers, 4-year-old Anthony and 2-year-old Lacy. Two older boys by a previous marriage live with the family.

The mother of those boys, 40-year old Kathleen Savio, died mysteriously in 2004 in her house in the same neighborhood. Savio was found dead in the dry bathtub of her Pheasant Chase home in March 2004. Drew Peterson and Savio were divorced and he was returning their two sons to their home after a weekend visit, but no one answered the locked door.

Peterson went to a neighbor's to call a locksmith. Once entry was gained, the neighbor went inside and found Savio's body in a waterless bathtub.

The investigation revealed Savio drowned. Her fingertips showed pruning from being submerged in water and her hair was wet when she was found. While there was no water in the bathtub, it may have drained out over time, as the plug was down, investigators speculated.

A coroner's jury ruled the death accidental. State Police investigated that case as well. No charges were filed. Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow has asked to re-examine the Savio case. She was Peterson's third wife. Stacy Peterson is his fourth wife.

A person who answered the Petersons' door declined to talk to CBS 2 Tuesday afternoon, but Sgt. Peterson has talked to police.

"He's cooperating fully with the investigation," said Lt. Ken Teppel of the Bolingbrook police. "The Illinois state investigation, I know the chief has spoken to him several times."

Stacy Peterson's family is offering a $20,000 reward for information about Stacy. Sgt. Peterson is taking personal time off from his job.

Stacy Peterson is described as a 5-foot-2-inches, 100 pound, white female with brown hair and eyes. She was last seen wearing a red jogging suit. She has a tattoo of a blue and yellow carnation on the small of her back and a scar across her stomach, according to a news release.

More than 20 years ago, Drew Peterson was fired from the Bolingbrook Police Department after the village board of police and fire commissioners found him guilty of disobedience, conducting a self-assigned investigation, failure to report a bribe immediately and official misconduct. He had been indicted two months earlier on charges of official misconduct and failure to report a bribe. Peterson was working under the auspices of the Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad at the time. Indictments alleged he solicited drugs in exchange for information about his agency.

The charges later were dropped. Special prosecutor Raymond Bolden said at the time the charges were not provable.

Drew Peterson won reinstatement with the department in March 1986. Judge Edwin Grabiec ruled police and fire commissioners lacked sufficient evidence to find Peterson guilty of the charges.

This is very disturbing. He got away with it once, so he thought he could do it again, probably.
And now there are more children without a Mother. :sad:

This guy had a bunch of ex wives and 4 kids, plus a newer, much younger wife in school. I wonder if they were having some financial trouble. Did she have life insurance?
Or was she developing a life of her own in order to escape him?

I'm always surprised that people are not more suspicious of someone who has had multiple failed marriages. It should be a red flag that something's not quite right, and that maybe this person is not someone who would be a good spouse.

These stories scare the H*ll outta me.  I recently left my husband who is a major control freak and is extremely emotionally and verbally abusive.  I know her husband is not an official suspect at this point but he could be the one who did something to her.  Just like Alma Mendez who's story is similar as far as leaving the husband.  I am always suspicious of the partner as so many of these female victims are killed by the men who profess to love them.  Very scary for a newly single woman.  You think that they would never do something like that, and bam...all of a sudden she's missing.

I have been reading alot about this case.  This girl was 17 when she met this married man and then became pregnant.  He would be what, 47 when they met?  Can you imagine your daughter at 17 introducing you to her 47 year old boy friend?  You would kind of have to wonder ..... not to mention his first wife ends up dead during their divorce.  Sheesh, very alarming.

You have to wonder, are we just hearing more about people killing their spouse as opposed to divorce or is it really happening more?  With child support & custody issues being what they are these days, I am prone to think men (seems like more so than women) are opting for murder over divorce.  Leaving alot of children with out mothers  :sad:

Bolingbrook Cop Speaks About Wife's Disappearance
Husband Says 23-Year-Old Is 'Where She Wants To Be'



Mike Puccinelli BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson commented Wednesday for the first time about the disappearance of his young wife Stacy Peterson. Meanwhile, prosecutors are taking a fresh look at the death of his ex-wife three years ago.

Sgt. Peterson says it was an unusual but fatal slip in the tub that caused the death of Kathleen Savio. He also took time to lash out on the media for, in his words, being more interested in the death of his ex-wife than in finding Stacy Peterson.

As CBS 2 West Suburban Bureau Chief Mike Puccinelli reports, at Stacy Peterson's Bolingbrook home police were on standby in marked and unmarked cars throughout the day Wednesday. While Drew Peterson and his kids remained holed up inside with no plans to go trick-or-treating. But CBS 2 did talk with his friend briefly outside the home.

"Drew is doing the best he can in a situation like this," Richard Mims said.

Drew and Stacy Peterson have been married for four years. She disappeared seemingly without a trace. Sgt. Peterson didn't want to go on camera but he did allow CBS 2 inside for a 10-minute conversation.

He described his last conversation with Stacy on Sunday night as being very unusual. He says she seemed "snotty."

He also said that her demeanor changed after one of her sisters died recently from cancer. He said she'd been under the care of a psychiatrist who had put her on the anti-anxiety drugs.
He also said he had no reason to suspect foul play in his wife's disappearance.

But Stacy Peterson's only surviving sister, Cassandra Cales, says Stacy lived in fear of the veteran police officer.

"She feared for her life," Cales said. "She wanted a divorce and was talking about getting a divorce."


Cales says her sister planned to meet with a divorce attorney on Monday. On Sunday she had planned to help a friend paint her home. When she never showed up, Cales started worrying.

"She told me if anything happened, if she disappeared she wanted somebody to know," Cales said.

So Cales called police before dawn Monday. Sgt. Peterson said he believes Stacy is "where she wants to be." He also said after she sees the media reports she'll either go deeper underground or she'll surface.

Police have been searching with canines and heat-seeking planes for Stacy Peterson. Sgt. Peterson said he thought it would be "very unusual" for Stacy to leave her children. He also said he has lived an honorable life and now people are looking at him with suspicion. He said that hurts.

This guy lashes out at the media for bringing up how his last wife died, seems like he doesn't want that talked about or investigated because he might have something to hide. Getting a little nervous Mike?

He also is now saying that the media needs to focus on his wife missing? Initially he blew it off saying that her mother ran off before, implying that Stacy just ran off... Now when we hear about how his last wife died under suspicious circumstances, he suddenly wants the media to focus on Stacy's case? He is doing some CYA - (Cover Your A**)

This guy probably was tired of divorces, he’s had two, so he off’s them because in his mind they are too much trouble. Also he might be worried that the truth would get exposed about him. Such as him not being a very honorable cop, or husband…

There was allegations about domestic abuse in the 3rd marriage and a restraining order against him.

I would so love for Stacey to be found alive and well and hubby not involved in her disappearance but realise the odds are against it. I also wish these folks would just get a divorce instead of ruining all the lives of those around them.

Off topic, Both of our children graduated at 17. When son was a freshman in college he became involved with his boss at his work study job. A married social worker. It scared me to death. I was afraid he was going to wind up dead.Son kept saying her husband was not a violent person and I kept saying anyone can become violent when pushed to far. I had to threaten her with getting her fired to get it to end. She did end it then thank God.

Kissyface please let your friends or family or someone know of your own fears. I pray they are unjustified but if you have them and you know him better than the rest of us. Stay safe. JMHO

HIS SIDE vs. HER FAMILY'S SIDE

His side: Sgt. Drew Peterson

November 1, 2007
BY DAN ROZEK AND STEFANO ESPOSITO Staff Reporters
Drew Peterson believes his missing wife left voluntarily -- even taking extra clothes with her -- and isn't a victim of foul play, the Bolingbrook police sergeant said Wednesday, breaking his silence on the puzzling disappearance of Stacy Peterson.

"I believe she's not missing. She's where she wants to be," he said. "I have no reason to suspect foul play."

His 23-year-old wife has been seeing a psychiatrist, taking Effexor, a prescription anti-depressant medication and struggling with "mood issues" since the cancer death last year of her sister, Peterson said during a brief interview in the couple's Bolingbrook home.

"Ever since then, Stacy has been different," the 53-year-old Peterson said. "There's been mood issues. She's been under the care of a psychiatrist."

That carried over into their last conversation, he said. She left their home Sunday morning to help a relative paint, then called him at their home at about 9 p.m. Sunday.

"She seemed snotty," Peterson said, describing the call as "unusual" though he wouldn't disclose details of what was said.

That call at 9 p.m. Sunday was his last communication with his wife -- and even then he said he didn't know where she was calling from.

"I don't know where she was when she called," he said.

Her relatives reported her missing about 4 a.m. Monday and there have been no signs of her since then.

Subhed
Illinois State Police said Wednesday they have used tracking dogs and an airplane equipped with a heat-sensing device to search for the 5-foot-2-inch tall, 100-pound woman, but have not located her.

Peterson, a 29-year veteran of the Bolingbrook Police Department, said he doesn't know why his wife of four years would leave him and their two children, ages 2 and 4, behind. She also adopted his children from a previous marriage, he said.

"I find that very unusual," he said of her absence. "She's a very good mom. For the last year or so, she's been very short-tempered, snapping on everyone, but still a good mom."

Stacy, who also took classes at Joliet Junior College, hadn't talked of suicide, Peterson said.

He said he thought their marriage was solid.

"I believed our marriage was good, but maybe she didn't," he said.

He believes the publicity surrounding her disappearance may prompt her to return, but added cryptically," there's other things involved."

Now taking leave from his job -- which he was set to retire from on Dec. 16 -- Peterson said he talked "for a while" on Monday night to state police investigators searching for his wife.

He said he found her purse, cell phone and even some clothing gone after she left their two-story brick home on Sunday.

Subhed
During the brief session with several reporters, Peterson banned any cameras, saying: "I would like to have my anonymity."

He sat at a desk in a first-floor study, with pictures of the couple's two kids -- Lacy, 2, and Anthony, 4 -- behind him on a bookcase.

Other pictures of the children and a photo of Peterson with his wife, sat nearby in the study.

Two sons from a prior marriage, now ages 12 and 15, also live in the house.

Peterson ripped media reports that Will County authorities are reviewing the 2004 death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, who drowned in a tub in her Bolingbrook home shortly after the couple had divorced.

A state police investigation concluded the death was accidental, but Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow said Tuesday he wants to take another look at the case.

"She just had an accident," he said. "Yes, it was an unusual accident."

That announcement, he said, has created public suspicion that he was somehow involved in her death -- something he adamantly denied.

"It bothers me. I've led an honorable life and people are looking at me sideways," he said. "It hurts. I just have to live through it."

He also complained that publicity surrounding his wife's disappearance had disrupted the family, even keeping his children from going Trick-or-Treating on Halloween.

"My klds can't even go Trick-or-Treat. I hate it," he said. "I'm a prisoner here."

He declined to answer a number of different questions, citing the ongoing investigation and family privacy.

"I'm not going to say anything that would jeopardize my family," he said.


Their side: Stacy Peterson's family

November 1, 2007
BY DAN ROZEK AND STEFANO ESPOSITO Staff Reporters
Stacy Peterson's family said Wednesday that the 23-year-old missing mother of two would never have abandoned her young children, ages 2 and 4.

"She's very sweet and caring," said Peterson's aunt, Candace Aikin, 48, of El Monte, Calif. "She's a very good mother to her children."

Peterson's uncle, Gary Cales, 68, of Hemet, Calif., agreed: "I know damn well she wouldn't go without them kids. I just know that for sure. That's the kind of mother she is. She loved those children."

Aikin said she is very close to her niece, and talks to her once a week by phone or e-mail. She said Stacy Peterson met her future husband about six years ago while she was working at a hotel in Bolingbrook.

Drew Peterson later got Stacy, then 17, a job at the Bolingbrook Police Department, Aikin said.

Aikin said Stacy Peterson grew up in Downers Grove and in Florida and Louisiana. Stacy's parents divorced when she was a little girl, Aikin said. Stacy lived with her father after the divorce, Aikin said, adding Stacy's mother had a history of vanishing without telling relatives where she was going.

"And then she would come back into our lives when she felt like calling."

Aikin said her family had concerns about Drew Peterson's character early on because he told Stacy when he began dating her that he had never been married.

In fact, Peterson had been married three times before.

Subhed
When Aikin first met Drew Peterson, "He seemed like a nice guy. He was always very nice to me."

But in recent months, it became clear that Stacy Peterson was miserable in her 4-year-old marriage, Aikin said.

Stacy confided to her aunt that her cop husband wanted to control her every move. Drew Peterson often asked his wife if she had a boyfriend, Aikin said.

"She was very stressed in her relationship with Drew," Aikin said. "She was on anti-depressants, and she couldn't even sleep at night. When I saw her this last time [in October], she was having a very hard time coping with her life. She just looked lost and confused."

Stacy Peterson told her aunt she wanted to divorce her husband, but didn't want to lose her children.

Aikin said she last spoke to her niece on Oct. 21.

"She sounded kind of frantic, like she wanted Drew out," Aikin said. "She was trying to kick him out. She said she would get back with me but she never did."

LOL -  :lol: That is sort of what I was thinking Jennifer34.  But all you monkeys know me pretty well, I would definitely be leaning towards the husband having something to do with this for many reasons and on many levels.  But also, like you said, if he truly had nothing to do with it, it sure does look horrible for him. 

I too feel so bad for the children of today they have to try to grow up in all this mess.

My theory, she wanted to leave him, didn't know quite how to go about that.  He is a cop and a control freak.  Couldn't take the thought of it.  Now he is going to be as arrogant as possible, blaming it on her depression, etc.  Yada yada...

I do hope I am wrong.  (PS - don't mean to make a generalization about all cops either).  Some of cops in this case histories however, are NOT good.

There are news helicopters flying over the airport now.
I won't make any mention on camera's, as it is an airport, however we have camera's on the doors. Maybe it would be a good idea to check them. I cannot make mention on anything involving security issues (cameras, pilots and who is leaving when) and I wouldn't want to say anything that could become an issue with the safety of me and the other people here so I won't mention anything about who does and doesn't leave the airport. I will say that it wouldn't be hard to fly out as a passenger and no-one know. Our hanger is staffed 24-7, but with it being cold out we close the hanger door to keep the bay warmer. There are alot of cars that drive behind the airport, but if your not looking for it, it could be missed. It's not unusual to have a car drive on the airport grounds, but they cannot get all the way around as we block the drive-thru area for civilian protection; we can't have someone driving in the area with the helicopter taking off at moments notice. I'm curious to know which area of the parking lot he claims she left the vehicle.

Stacy Peterson was last seen on Sunday and the last person who spoke to her over the phone was her husband. 

The couple has two young chidren ages 2 and 4.

The Drew Peterson, 53,  has denied any involvement in her disappearance, saying that she left on her own, however Stacy Peterson's sister has told WBBM her sister feared for her life. 

Cassandra Cales says she would talk to her sister Stacy Peterson every day. 

"She told me Friday night that she feared for her life and that she was telling me this, so that if she just so happened to disappear, it wasn't her and she wanted to be found."

Stacy Peterson is the fourth wife of Bolingbrook Police Sergeant Drew Peterson.

His third wife Kathleen Savio, 40, was found dead in a bathtub - a death that was ruled accidental. However, Will County officials have said they are taking another look at the case in light of the recent developments.

Bolingbrook police say Sergeant Drew Peterson told them he found his wife's car at the airport Sunday night.

A camera is aimed at the parking lot of the airport, and investigators have been trying to figure out if they can get images that will yield some clues.
The Illinois State Police have used tracking dogs and an airplane equipped with a heat-sensing device to search for the woman. Authorities also have found no indications of foul play.

Peterson said he thought the couple had a good marriage, ``but maybe she didn't,'' he said.
   
In fact, Stacy Peterson's family, while agreeing the woman was depressed, said the reason was she believed her husband was watching everything she did and had asked for a divorce.
   
``She just wanted people to know she was unhappy, and she didn't like how she was being treated,'' said her aunt, Candace Aikin, 48, of El Monte, Calif. ``In case she disappeared - if something bad happened to her.''

 Just another bit of info...He recieved 1 million dollars from his ex-wifes death. Weird, I thought they were divorced. I can see why she fell for him...rich man in a uniform. This is heresay, so don't hold me to this info. I'm giving it to you as I hear it and don't have time to make sure it's all accurate. I do, do more at work then write on here...I have to eat too!
 

From what I understand, Drew is devistated and looks it too. He thinks she left him for another man, but thats what they all say. Still don't know everything, but I hear Drew is not in custody. Conflicting stories.

I'm hoping she just took off and is too embarassed to show face now. Doesn't sound too good though.

They are using the airport resturaunt as a command post.

well that is definitely not good news.  I wonder how long it will take to find some kind of tangible evidence.  Sometimes the dogs (though it is very rare) give a false alert.  I wonder how many dogs alerted.  If it were more than one, then I would say they have probably found some kind of traces.  If it were only one dog, they may need to do it again.  Sad but true, time is of the essence and the more time that goes by, as we all know, the more evidence gets "lost".  I really hope the alert was false and they find this young mother.  If it turns out to be homicide though, at least she had the foresight to let her family members know that she was in fear.  That will make them investigate him more thoroughly.  Sad sad sad.  Prayers for Stacy, her children and her friends and family.

Massive Search Underway For Cop's Missing Wife

Stacy Peterson's Family Believes She May Have Been Killed
BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― Family and friends of a missing woman from Bolingbrook are launching a massive search effort this weekend.

As CBS 2's Rafael Romo reports, Stacy Peterson, 23, has now been missing for six days. Her husband, Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, was the last one to see her this past Sunday.

Two searches for Stacy Peterson were planned for Saturday. Neighbors were conducting the first search at the Petersons' house. That search was already getting underway at 8 a.m.

Later Saturday morning, neighbors planned to search the DuPage River Greenway.

On Friday night, a friend of Drew Peterson's spoke on his behalf. Ric Mims has been the sergeant's friend for years, and he says the 53-year-old veteran cop would have been incapable of harming his wife.

"I know in my heart there's no foul play. I want to say that one more time, I know in my heart there's no foul play," Mims said. "I stand by my friend."

But Stacy's family is not so certain.

"Something happened to her," said her sister, Cassandra Cales.

Stacy's family fears that she might have been the victim of foul play. They plan to look around Bolingbrook for her on Saturday.

Cales told CBS 2 West Suburban Bureau Chief Mike Puccinelli on Friday that her sister had been in fear for her life and had said so before disappearing. Cales said Stacy Peterson had been expected to help her paint last Sunday, but never showed up.

Later, Cales said, she called Drew Peterson, and she said what followed was a mysterious conversation.

"And I hear a bunch of noise and shuffling, and car ignition keys, you know, like he's starting a car, and he's like, 'I went out running around looking for your sister. She left me,'" Cales said.

Cales has said she did not believe her sister would leave without her children.

On Friday afternoon, investigators searched a manhole near the Peterson Home on Bolingbrook's Pheasant Run Court, looking for clues. Police divers also searched a retention pond near the home.

The two-day search of the retention ponds ended with no result. Authorities continue to investigate numerous tips from the public.

But in spite of the family's worst fears, police continue to investigate the disappearance only as a missing persons case.

"I'm just hoping some way, she's out there still," said family friend Bruce Zidarich.

Stacy is Drew Peterson's fourth wife. Questions also remain about the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, who drowned in a whirlpool-style bathtub three years ago. At the time, the Will County coroner's office ruled the case accidental, but the Will County state's attorney's office has reopened the case.

SATURDAY UPDATE: Pond Search for Clues of Cop's Missing Wife Comes Up Dry

 
BOLINGBROOK  (WBBM) ― Dive crews again searched a retention near the neighborhood of a  missing wife of a Bolingbrook police sergeant. But they left without recovering any clues, taking nothing with them

Meanwhile, the woman's sister is afraid of what might have happened to her.

Stacy Peterson, 23, was last seen on Sunday. Illinois State Police have searched the home she shared with her husband, Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson.

Drew Peterson remains in his home.

The police dive teams continue to search retention ponds just up the street. They searched the pond on Thursday before darkness halted them and Friday until dusk. Viewing conditions under water are zero visibility. They originally planned to continue for several days to clear the whole pond. A cadaver-sensing dog was in one of the search  boats.

It is located a short distance from their home on Pheasant Chase Court in Bolingbrook. It is also near the business where Drew Peterson told family members that he found Stacy's car on Sunday night.

Stacy's family and loved ones say Drew Peterson told them the mother of two children left him for another man and likely flew to Jamaica.

•Cassandra Cales (pictured) said her sister Stacy would never leave her children.

Cales said she believed her sister was in danger and had in essence been stalked by her husband.

"When she told me Friday night she feared for her life, I was suspicious so I wanted to stay in contact her, so I saw her Saturday night," Cales said. "We spoke, we talked all day, we text messaged. When I left her Saturday night, she said she'd call me when she woke up. She never called, and I just got really worried."

Cales had been expecting her sister to help her paint with a friend on Sunday, but five hours after Stacy had been expected, she had not shown up. Cales said began "calling her cell phone, calling the house, I was calling everybody, and then finally I broke down and called Drew."

Cales said she reached Sgt. Peterson at 11:26 p.m. Sunday.

"I called him and I heard a bunch of noise and shuffling and car ignition keys like him starting a car," Cales said. "(Drew Peterson said), 'I went out running around looking for your sister. She left me,' I said, 'While what are you doing, where are you at?' He goes, 'I'm at home, where are you at?' I said, 'I'm at home in my garage,' sitting a couple blocks away."

Cales said she was certain Sgt. Peterson was lying when he said he was home, since she had just left the Peterson house. She went straight to police, who spent Thursday executing warrants at the home.

When Cales finished filing missing persons reports before dawn Monday morning, she said she drove back to Stacy's house and discovered that both cars were in the driveway, whereas earlier that night they had been missing

"He said that she called him at 9 o'clock and said she left her car at Clow Airport (a local airfield), and that she was leaving; going on a little vacation," Cales said. "I wouldn't be doing all this if I believed it."

"I'm doing what you asked," Cales said in tears. "I'm here to let you know that I will find you."

Cales said her greatest fear is, "That he did something to her."

Drew and Stacy Peterson have been married for four years. She is his fourth wife. In 2004 Sgt. Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, was found dead in a bathtub just down the street from the Petersons' current home.  It is a whirlpool-style tub. Savio's sister said she does not think it would be possible for her sister to drown in it.

The Will County Coroner's office ruled Savio's death an accident. The current Will County State's Attorney, James Glasgow, was not in office at the time of the incident, and has decided to take a second look.

Raking the bottom
BOLINGBROOK | Divers search pond for woman, State Police take interest in aircraft


November 3, 2007
BY STEFANO ESPOSITO AND DAN ROZEK Staff Reporters
As divers probed a murky pond Friday searching for clues in the disappearance of Bolingbrook mother Stacy Peterson, Illinois State Police zeroed in on her cop husband's micro-light airplane.

Divers spent nearly seven hours painstakingly scouring the pond, near Clow Airport in the far southwestern suburb, but came up with nothing in their search for Peterson.

RELATED STORIES• Police search airport, pond for missing woman

And State Police were at a hangar at Cushing Field, about 65 miles southwest of downtown Chicago, for about an hour Friday morning, said Michael Hudetz, a flight instructor at the airfield and owner of A&M Sports, a company selling micro-lights.

Hudetz said he showed investigators Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson's two-seater Aquilla Trike and the hangar where Peterson keeps it.

"They asked a lot of questions," Hudetz said. "They seemed very interested in how it works. They wanted to know where the people sit, where they put their feet. They wanted to know how the [aircraft's] parachute works."

Investigators also asked Hudetz if there were any "barrels" at the airfield.

"One of the guys I shook hands with was wearing thin plastic gloves," Hudetz said.

But State Police were "very vague" about why they were at the hangar Friday, Hudetz said.

The divers, who were aided during the morning by a cadaver-sniffing dog riding in a boat, didn't find any items that could be linked to Stacy Peterson's disappearance, authorities said.

Husband being 'cooperative'
There was no specific tip or information that led police to search the 2-acre pond, said Trooper Mark Dorencz, a State Police spokesman.

The pond is a few blocks from Peterson's home and sits at the end of the runway at Clow Airport, a small public airstrip.

"We're basically just covering the area [near the home]," Dorencz said, adding the investigation into Peterson's disappearance remains "a missing person's case."

Divers from the Naperville and Plainfield police departments stretched a cable across the bottom of the pond, then two divers slowly swam along the cable, feeling along the bottom for objects. After the divers completed each sweep, the cable was moved a foot or two along the bank, allowing the divers to swim back across and search a new area of the pond.

Peterson was reported missing Monday by worried relatives. Her husband, Drew Peterson, told investigators he last saw his wife Sunday morning and last spoke to her by phone Sunday night.

Drew Peterson, 53, wasn't questioned Friday by investigators, but "he's been cooperative," said Master Sgt. Luis Gutierrez, another State Police spokesman.

Peterson didn't talk to reporters still parked outside the family's home.

About 11 a.m., Peterson rode out of his driveway on a motorcycle, with a red-white-and-blue bandanna pulled up to his eyes.

About two years ago, Hudetz trained Drew Peterson to fly his micro-light, which runs about $20,000 new, the flight instructor said.

"He was actually a private pilot before that," Hudetz said. "He flew regular airplanes. He seemed like a very nice guy."

Sometimes Peterson flew alone but he had also flown with his wife, Hudetz said.

 im posting this here, because the other thread was aparently closed. im new to all this message board stuff, so who knows



OK, lets play! what do YOU know about her family?
well, i know that they lost a sister, lacy, who was 2 in a house fire. The lost baby jessica at 10 months, to crib death, which set mom over the edge....tooo much for her to handle, and she began the cycle of leaving and coming back. this devestated the kids.
stacy lost her sister and best friend tina last year after a 20 month long battle with colon cancer. it has been said that she was depressed and on meds for that....well, drew had stacy convinced that tinas death was nothing more than assisted sucicide, so yeah, that was a huge struggle for her. BTW it was not like that at all....tina died of cancer....the meds used were to keep her comfotrable, not kill her. this is know as FACT!
he was very controlling. FACT! at tinas funeral, he was never more than 5 steps away from her....watching her in such a way that was dam creepy to everyone who saw it.
the first time i met him i knew nothing about him at all....and i instantly had a bad feeling about him....very shady.
when stacy met him, he told her he had never been married, later it came out that he was divorced, and finally, when she got pregnant, it was found out that he was just getting divorced. yes, stacy did not make the best choices in the situation. but he wooed her. she came froim not much and he offered her the world, and she, being a starry eyed teen ager, with a knight in shining armor, well....the rest you know.
as for her family...they have been throuh so much and have risen about IN SPITE of it. now, there is the matter of the brother, yelton, in prison and this sexual predator crap;.....he was dating an underage girl whos sister tunred him in.....he isnt the most upstanding man, i agree, but he isnt a pedofile either, like drew made him out to be. in fact, the under age thing, well, drew knows a thing or two about that, EH?
and yes, the sister, cassandra has a deep voice....so what! she is struggling with the loss of her sister, ANOTHER sister.....how would YOU be!?!
stacy was afraid of her husband......i know this personally, from her mouth to my ears. she wanted to leave, but feared loosing her kids, or her life.
i kow for a FACT that IF she went underground, she would have at the very least told her aunt candy! she would have NEVER EVER put her family through this, as she knows what it is like, not to mention the kids...no, she isnt like her mother in that way.
so, no, she didnt come from the most stable family in the state....so what! what does that mean?
nothing......it means this girl is missing. vanished with out a trace. and knowing stacy, she didnt leave of her own accord.

I wonder what insurance policies Drew Peterson might have on this wife and if they are comparable to the ones from his third wife.

I don't think she would leave her children as Stacey seems very connected to her own family and would have some support for them there. 

Note the State Police have been called in so as not to have the local PD investigating one of their own.  Excellent move and worthy of citing as example for all to follow when a police officer is involved.

Anna - good question regarding the insurance policy on Stacy.  I don't think Drew is going that route however with Stacy.  It would have to be an accidental death and it sounds like if she's found dead, he'll try to claim suicide.  Of course life insurace wouldn't pay out in the case of suicide.  If she's not found, Drew will claim she simply ran off which I don't think she'd do.  So IMO, he's trying to get out of being divorced a 4th time and paying child support and possibly alimony.

Klaas,

I think some life insurance policies will pay on a suicide if it happens so many years after the policy has been in effect.  Long period of time like three or five years but some of them do pay.  Just made long enough that a person can't take out a policy and then commit suicide instantly.

I was thinking he might have taken out the policy when the children were born and used that as an excuse for needing one.

But surely he would not be that stupid and obvious, just a passing thought.

I maintain hope and prayers for her safe recovery but do not believe she would have left her children with such a strong tradition of family ties.  Let's hope she was fearful and got to safety but by now she would have seen the news and search and I don't think she would put her family through this as her sister does not seem to think that likely either.

.

Spouse under scrutiny
MISSING BOLINGBROOK MOM

November 3, 2007
By JOE HOSEY Staff Writer
BOLINGBROOK -- The police have searched his house and seized his property. A media horde has camped in front of his home. A crowd of in-laws criticize him. But at least one man feels for the police sergeant whose wife disappeared nearly a week ago.

"I know what he's going through," said Craig Stebic, the Plainfield pipefitter who has a missing wife of his own. "Especially with you media and everything."

Stebic, the husband of the vanished Lisa Stebic, has weathered police and media scrutiny for more than six months.

Sgt. Drew Peterson is on Day 6 and already has shown signs of strain, briefly venturing out in front of the media with an American flag bandanna covering his face, dark sunglasses and an NYPD baseball cap pulled low over his eyes before running back inside Thursday. Then on Friday, witnesses say he drove away from the media throng on his motorcycle with the same bandanna covering his face.

Peterson's missing wife, 23-year-old Stacy Peterson, last was seen Sunday morning. She apparently was heading to meet the boyfriend of her sister Cassandra to help him paint a house but never reached her destination.

Cassandra and other family members since have expressed their suspicions of the 53-year-old Drew Peterson in the media.

Drew Peterson was still married when he met 17-year-old Stacy Cales while she was working as an overnight desk clerk at Spring Hill Suites on Remington Boulevard. Their March-November romance spelled the end of his marriage to his third wife, Kathleen Savio.

Within years of Drew Peterson filing for divorce, Savio died under mysterious circumstances.

Her body was discovered after Drew Peterson attempted to return their two sons from a weekend visitation. No one answered the locked door and Drew Peterson, who lived down the street from Savio with his new wife Stacy, sought help from a neighbor. The neighbor called a locksmith, and once entry was gained, went inside to find Savio's body in a waterless bathtub.

State's Attorney James Glasgow has revisited the case to see if it warrants criminal charges, but "the missing persons case is the immediate concern right now," said Glasgow's spokesman, Charles B. Pelkie.

Divers search pond
The missing persons case continued Friday with police divers searching a retention pond near the Petersons' home on Pheasant Chase Court.
State police also have turned an eye to a micro-light airplane owned by Drew Peterson. Investigators were at a hangar at Cushing Field in Newark, about 30 miles west of Joliet, for about an hour Friday morning, said Michael Hudetz, a flight instructor who also sells micro-lights.

Hudetz said he showed investigators Drew Peterson's two-seater Aquilla Trike and the hangar where Peterson keeps it.

"They asked a lot of questions," Hudetz said. "They seemed very interested in how it works. They wanted to know where the people sit, where they put their feet. They wanted to know how the (aircraft's) parachute works."

Investigators also asked Hudetz if there were any "barrels" at the airfield.

About two years ago, Hudetz trained Drew Peterson to fly his micro-light, which run about $20,000 new, the flight instructor said.

"He was actually a private pilot before that," Hudetz said. "He flew regular airplanes. He seemed like a very nice guy."

Sometimes Peterson flew alone, but he had also flown with his wife, Hudetz said.

The search for Lisa Stebic, which passed the six-month mark last week, continues as well.

But police working that case have dropped the nicety of labeling it a missing person investigation, revealing in July that they had concluded Lisa Stebic was not involved in an accident or forcibly abducted. They believe she was a victim of foul play, and that Craig Stebic knows something about her disappearance.

Latest on Missing Cop Wife Stacy Peterson… And A Behind The Scenes
by Greta Van Susteren
This is behind the scenes…

Late last night on the way home after the show I spoke to Mark Furham — he was driving away from the scene of Sgt. Peterson’s house with my producer Steph Watts. Mark told me the local police are annoyed with me since we read on the air the portion of wife #3’s letter where she complained that she had called the police on her then husband Sgt. Peterson multiple times and included in the letter that the police did not take reports. (Our panel also seized upon this statement in the letter.)

As you know, wife #3 was found dead in the bathtub and it was ruled ‘accidental’ (Dr. Baden does not agree with this conclusion.)

I told Mark he should tell the police that they are welcome to come on our air and state that reports were taken (contrary to the letter of wife #3) - and to tell them that I want to be sure to get the facts absolutely right.

I am curious now, however, why so many reports taken and apparently no action taken????? or did wife #3 complain to the police, make a report but then back out of pursuing it? That does happen… The police need the help of the complaining party to pursue domestic violence claims.

I hope we get the answers Monday and I hope the police will join us to explain. And let me be plain: I want to get this right..and I want to be fair to all parties.

Yes, that happened. I saw it on Fox earlier today. A young woman (neighbor or friend) said that some search experts were coming in -- the same ones that searched for Natalee Holloway in Aruba. She had Natalee and Aruba by name but did not have the name of TE. Later in the afternoon or evening Fox had a banner on its news story naming Tim Miller and Texas Equisearch.

Hi PV!  This is great news!  From what I understand thought TES is pretty busy tomorrow and is on another search next weekend.  Maybe TES will go out during the week?

Hi, Klaas. I was up in that area this week. My dad passed away and we had a funeral near there. Very sad but he was 85 and accomplished a lot. Anyway, they are quite stirred up about this case on the local news. One of the newspapers reported that Greta and Mark Fuhrman were on site. You might have noticed that this is not far from Plainfield where Lisa Stebic lived. The plane is an interesting addition in this story. It's about thirty miles to Lake Michigan. You could conceivably fly twenty miles out over the lake and back again, for a total of one hundred miles -- no big deal, and there are no recreational boaters out there at this time of year to see you drop something.

The plane is an ultralight, not a normal closed cockpit plane so I'm not sure if he would use that.  There is a large blue plastic tub that appears to be missing from the house as well.

Family, friends search woods for missing Bolingbrook mother
By Emma Graves Fitzsimmons

Tribune staff reporter

9:48 PM CDT, November 3, 2007

Giving up hope that missing Bolingbrook mother Stacy Peterson is alive, her family and friends are now focused on finding information to help with the investigation into her disappearance.

Dozens of people combed a forest near her home for several hours on Saturday looking for any traces of the 23-year-old, who disappeared last Sunday. Their search through the wooded Knoch Knolls Park came up empty, but the group planned to return with more people on Sunday morning.

Peterson's sister, Cassandra Cales, said the family no longer believes she is alive.

"We're going to get to the bottom of this," Cales, 22, said during the search. "I just want whoever did this to her brought to justice."

Cales also confirmed Saturday that her sister said the Friday before she disappeared that she feared for her life and wanted a divorce from her husband, Drew, a Bolingbrook police sergeant.

Neighbors posted fliers at local malls while friends created a Web site to pool information on her case. Some searched the DuPage River a mile from her home by kayak; others walked a cadaver dog through nearby wetlands at Whalon Lake Dog Park.

Meanwhile, her sister pieced together a timeline of accounts from friends and family of the days leading up to her disappearance.

It was a coordinated effort by a community hungry for an explanation into her disappearance, especially as the national media have descended upon the quiet southwest suburban neighborhood.

Drew Peterson, 53, has been interviewed by police in his wife's disappearance. The couple have two children, ages 2 and 4, and Drew has two sons, ages 13 and 14, from a previous marriage. His former wife and the mother of his sons, Kathleen Savio, drowned in a bathtub accident in 2004, but prosecutors are now reviewing that case.

Authorities are calling the Stacy Peterson case a missing-person investigation, but those who knew her best suspect foul play and say Peterson never would have skipped town without her children.

Peterson was reported missing to the Illinois State Police early Monday after she failed to meet her sister Sunday to help paint a house. Her husband said he last saw her about 10 a.m. Sunday, and last spoke with her about 9 p.m. Sunday when she called on her cell phone to say she was leaving him.

Authorities were not performing any searches on Saturday after divers spent Thursday and Friday dragging a 5-acre pond at Bolingbrook's Clow International Airport, just blocks from the Peterson home. Drew Peterson, who is licensed to fly a plane, said he found his wife's car in Clow's parking lot Monday.

State Police on Friday searched a hangar at Cushing Field in Sheridan where Drew Peterson kept a plane, according to Michael Hudetz, a flight instructor at A&M Airsports. Cushing Field is about 38 miles west of Bolingbrook.

Among those helping in Saturday's search was Anne Bielby, who has never met Peterson, but wants to see a happy ending to the story.

"This is my hometown, so it's personal," she said. "You can't not look. As more time passes, you lose valuable clues." The Web site dedicated to Stacy Peterson is findstacypeterson.com.

No, I suppose an ultralight would not be efficient. The Chicago Tribune says at 8:17 tonight that the family believes she's dead:

An Alert for everyone who wishes to help in the search for missing Bolingbrook mother, Stacy Peterson:

Tomorrow (Sunday, November 4) at 10:00 a.m. they're having another search that will meet at 6 Pheasant Chase Court in Bolingbrook, Illinois....

That is in the cul-de-sac in front of Stacy's house.

We are asking everyone to help to get the word out to your mailing list about the search.

They NEED as many volunteers as possible are needed to help cover search areas!
Equusearch is coming in tomorrow, but it's going to take them some time to get things set up, so in the meantime others are organizing searches to try and find Stacy.

Wife's e-mail shows troubled marriage
BOLINGBROOK | Volunteers searching for missing woman

November 4, 2007
BY STEVE WARMBIR Staff Reporter/swarmbir@suntimes.com
Friends and family of missing Bolingbrook mother Stacy Peterson vowed to continue their search today through a heavily wooded area near her home, while a recently uncovered e-mail sent by Peterson sheds new light on the troubled relationship between her and her cop husband in the days before her disappearance.

About 60 volunteers spread out Saturday morning along a jogging trail and a large wooded area around Route 53 and Royce Road in Bolingbrook. They also blanketed area stores with fliers. Peterson's husband, Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson, left his home Saturday morning and did not join in the search effort.

Stacy Peterson's sister, Cassandra Cales, did participate but told NBC5 she believes her sister is dead.

"No, she's not alive," Cales said, echoing the fears of many searchers.

The search will resume at 9 a.m. today, with volunteers asked to meet at Peterson's Bolingbrook house on Pheasant Chase Court. Employees from a professional search company from Texas are expected to volunteer as well beginning today, said one search coordinator, Roy Taylor, whose mother is a close friend of Stacy Peterson's.

Illinois State Police have expressed interest in a barrel once at the Peterson home. Searchers focused on that but came up empty Saturday.

One searcher, Mike Cepuran, who said he knew Stacy Peterson since she was a little girl, paddled a kayak as part of the search along the DuPage River. Cepuran found a barrel -- but it was empty.

Police divers have searched a nearby pond, and investigators also have examined a micro-light airplane owned by Drew Peterson.

Friends and family called Stacy Peterson "a good person" who would never leave her two children. Worried relatives reported Stacy Peterson missing on Monday.

'Keep me in your prayers'
On Oct. 17, she e-mailed a family friend, expressing concern over her deteriorating relationship with her husband. The e-mail was provided by the friend, Steve Cesare, to the Naperville Sun.

"i have been arguing quite a bit w/my husband," Stacy Peterson wrote.

"as i mature with age i am finding that the relationship i am in is controlling, manipulative and some what abusive," she wrote in the e-mail dated Oct. 17. ". . . tomorrow is our 4 year anniversary and I am not as excited as the years that have past.

". . . if you could keep me in your prayers i could use some wisdom, protection, and strength."


Stacy Peterson is the fourth wife of Drew Peterson. His third wife, Kathleen Savio, was found dead in an empty bathtub in her Bolingbrook home in 2004. The death was ruled accidental.

Drew Peterson and Savio were divorced at the time. Their two sons inherited the $1 million life insurance policy Peterson held on his ex-wife, court records indicate.

Just Spoke to Producer Covering Sgt Peterson / Stacy Peterson

by Greta Van Susteren
I just spoke to Steph Watts, producer on the ground in Illinois covering the Stacy Peterson disappearance story.  It has been exactly one week she has been gone and still no sign.  He said Tim Miller and EquiSearch is due there tonight.  EquiSearch is very experienced at organizing searches.  As you might know, organization is key to avoiding duplicate searches or even contaminated evidence.

If the husband were able to get her body into a container and out of the house, he would probably head farther away than the local retention pond, IMHO. It's a short drive to I-55 and from there he could go west toward Iowa on I-80. You get miles and miles of farm country out there, including some hills and canyons around Starved Rock State Park. Because the most recent wife was found in the home, he would want the next one to be found far far away, wouldn't ya think? Or not found at all.

I agree.  TES should be meeting with the state police since they are in charge of the case.  I really hope they have some ideas of where to look.

Fox News interviewed the recipient of the e-mails from Stacy. He said that her husband was very controlling and gave this example: Stacy's sister had fallen ill with cancer and so the recipient of the e-mail offered to drive her to visit. Her husband would not allow her to go because he would be driving her. He went on to say that most of their communications were via e-mail because of her husband.

There wasn't any hint of an affair or anything like that, he was simply a friend.

Another Peterson search, but still no clues
By Jeff Long

Tribune staff reporter

8:08 PM CST, November 4, 2007

With their ranks swollen by increasing media attention, about 90 volunteers combed rural areas near Bolingbrook for a second day Sunday for clues to explain the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, the wife of a Bolingbrook police sergeant who was last seen Oct. 28.

Family, friends and strangers who just wanted to help fanned out across wetlands at Whalon Lake, part of the Will County Forest Preserve District, about 4 miles from the Peterson home. They also searched around Indian Boundary Park and other rural, wooded areas.

But they found no evidence to help police, said organizer Roy Taylor, son of the missing woman's neighbor.

"The family just needs to know," said Peterson's stepsister Debbie Forgue of Westchester. "We need to find her."

But by now, the relatives fear they will never find Peterson alive.

"I don't think we're looking for a person that's alive at this point," said another stepsister, Kerry Simmons of Riverside.

Taylor said Texas EquuSearch, a non-profit organization involved in hundreds of missing-person cases over the last several years, has agreed to join the search for Peterson.

As Forgue and the other volunteers inched across the wetlands surrounding Whalon Lake on Sunday morning, they looked for any unusual signs of disturbance in the ground. Local stores have donated two-way radios to assist the volunteer searchers, and about 600 fliers have been posted throughout the community.

Peterson, 23, a mother of two, was reported missing to Illinois State Police on Oct. 29 after she failed to meet her sister the day before to help paint a house.

Divers from the Naperville Police Department spent Thursday and Friday searching a 5-acre pond at Bolingbrook's Clow International Airport, just blocks from her home.

Her husband, Sgt. Drew Peterson, 53, has said he last saw her about 10 a.m. Oct. 28 and last spoke with her about 9 p.m. that day when she called on her cell phone to say she was leaving him.

Search For Missing Mom Brings In Houston Experts

Stacy Peterson's Neighbor Bothered By Earlier Conversations With Stacy, Early E-mails To Friend Ask Friend To Keep Her In Their Prayers

CBS 2's Rafael Romo, Katie McCall, and Mike Puccinelli contributed to this report.
BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― Ninety people came out to look for Stacy Peterson Sunday, and a search and rescue group from Houston is scheduled to meet with her family to take over their search efforts. Peterson's loved ones believe they are looking for her body.

As she and other friends plan the next search for 23-year-old Stacy Peterson, friend and neighbor Sharon Bychowski is haunted by what she says were many conversations about Peterson's desire to divorce her husband, Bolingbrook police sergeant Drew Peterson.

Update on Stacy Peterson Disappearance
by Greta Van Susteren
UPDATE - (MORE AT 10pm tonight on ON THE RECORD)

We have just obtained some documents in connection with of Sgt. Peterson’s wife #3. She kept a log of abuse…and we are working on corroborating the documents and you will hear more at 10pm tonight ON THE RECORD.

Plus, Sgt. Peterson has 18 incident reports at work - many of which may be insignificant and we are hearing that many are. The Police Chief will explain the incident reports tonight and discuss the investigation into wife #3’s death. Note he was not the Police Chief when wife #3 died so it was not his job at the time to investigate.  Note further that when he became Chief, no one alerted him to this now suspicious death.

This is unbelievable. I am an old friend of Drew's second wife. I moved away years ago and we lost touch. I heard the story on the radio and I got chills. Went home and watched the news. Saw a picture of the wife who died and for a moment panicked thinking it was my old friend. Long dark hair, she wore hers the same way. It wasn't until I heard her name that I realized this was not my old friend. Drew was very jealous, would not ever let her go any where or do anything. He spied on her, accused of of things, and they had major fights. He was married before her and had 2 boys who are probably in their 20's by now. I'm so thankful it was not her. I always hated how he treated her and am glad she was #2 not 3 or 4. He may not be guilty of anything, but he was certainly not a nice husband.

An article appeared using my friend's name. Her name was Vicki. She had no children with Drew. He had 2 boys with his first wife and Vicki had a good relationship with them. She had a daughter of her own from a previous relationship. She was a good mom. They lived on Seminole Drive at the time. Drew was under investigation at that time and he was very stressed. Drew treated her the same way her treated these next two wives. Extremely controlling. Lots of fighting and I told her many times that he was treating her badly. She had to lie to him even if she just wanted to have coffee with her girlfriends. He always made sure we knew he carried his damn gun. They bought a bar out in Montgomery, IL. I don't know how that turned out. My husband and I only went there once. I saw her again in the hospital after she was involved in a bad car accident on the way home from the bar. I moved away about a month later. We lost touch. This whole story gives me chills. I just am glad to hear she got away from him. I pray for these last 2 families. I hope for the sake of the children that Drew did not have anything to do with all of this. My heart tells me different.

I just returned from volunteering at the Person's neighbor's home where I was handing out fliers to be posted in establishments throughout the region. I took some to post in and around Lockport and Homer Glen.

Today they are coordinating with Tim Miller EQUUSEARCH and the police for tomorrow's field search. Tim and Roy took off before I packed it up and left myself. I will help in the search effort tomorrow.

The media is swarming the place and Stacy's best friend and neighbor gave a great interview this morning. She's a strong woman and a heck of an advocate for Stacy. Stacy has a lot of strong support. I spoke with her cousin who popped in to pick up some fliers and she is experiencing the same thing that Lisa's family is experiencing with the stress and the unanswered questions. She felt as I did about Stacy after reading a copy of the Email that was provided to the press, and that was that Stacy seemed to be quite mature for her young age of 23. It must have been extremely difficult to come to the understanding about the position of the relationship and make the decision to move forward and get out. That takes a great amount of personal strength and courage, especially given her situation.

I hope Stacy and Lisa are both found soon so the families can have closure and begin the healing process.

Tim Miller appears to be a remarkable man. They can have as many as 1800 people searching a huge radius. Speaking of that, does anyone have any ideas where they can establish a command center to run their search operation? They are in need of that and if anyone has any suggestions, please bring them forward. Tim Miller's group is an all volunteer group as an FYI. They will come in to do searches simply by a family member's request.

Hopefully, it is not information you need but it's good to know just in case or to pass along to someone who does need to know about it.

Roy was telling me about all the people Tim's group has found and it appears rather remarkable.

Matt, Roy was very thankful for your help yesterday.

Also, Free, the gentleman who provided the 6 wheelers has offered the use of his entire fleet of them in the search for Stacy. I'm certain he would do the same for Lisa.

Transcript of Dr. Baden's analysis of the 3rd wife's autopsy report:

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,308199,00.html

Mysterious Death of Drew Peterson's Third Wife
Monday , November 05, 2007


  This is a rush transcript from "On the Record ," November 2, 2007. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, HOST: Stacy Peterson, wife number 4 of Sergeant Drew Peterson, is missing. She has not been seen since Sunday. And complicating matters for Sergeant Peterson tonight is that his third wife's bathtub death is now being re-investigated. A prosecutor has re-opened the investigation into her death. It was declared an accident at the time. The coroner said she drowned, but did she?

Joining us is forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden. Dr. Baden, we have gotten a copy of the autopsy report from wife number three's family.

DR. MICHAEL BADEN, FORENSIC PATHOLOGIST: Right.

VAN SUSTEREN: I take it you've looked at it now.

BADEN: I have it right here.

VAN SUSTEREN: And your thoughts on it?

BADEN: It is not an accident. The hair, her head hair, was soaked in blood, as the medical examiner says, and she had a laceration, a blunt force laceration on the top of her head. She had a dozen other black-and- blue bruises and scraping abrasions of the extremities and of the abdomen. It looks as if she — from the description that she was beaten up, apart from drowning. Her heart was good. Her brain was good. There were no drugs in her body on toxicology. There's no reason for her to have drowned. Adults don't drown if they're in good health.

VAN SUSTEREN: Dr. Baden, what would possess a coroner to call it accident? When I looked at it and I saw the hair full of blood, I thought, What's that? But I figured I just — you know, I went to law school and not medical school. What would possess this coroner to say this was an accident?

BADEN: Well, the doctor who did the autopsy, the pathologist who did the autopsy just said drowning. The non-physician coroner, who's elected, determined that it was also an accident. And he just made a mistake. I don't know...


VAN SUSTEREN: How is that a mistake? I mean — I mean, you look at it — I mean — I mean, is it an easy mistake, I should say? I mean, is this a close call, as you look at this?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: No.

VAN SUSTEREN: I mean, you don't have the body to examine. You're looking at the report. But is this a close call, in your mind?

BADEN: No, it's not a close call. It should not have been called an accident.

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, then how — then how can you say it was a mistake, if it's not a close call?

BADEN: Well, because it depends on the qualification of the coroner. Medical examiners have to be physicians. Coroners are often funeral directors.

VAN SUSTEREN: But the doctor who did the autopsy, when he hears that it was — it was in the news that it was an accident, I'm sure. I mean — I mean, what was he thinking of...

BADEN: Right.

VAN SUSTEREN: What was the — the man or woman who did the autopsy thinking when the coroner, who's not a doctor, says this is an accident? Wouldn't you think that someone would speak up, if it's as obvious as you say?

BADEN: Well, three years later, I think that the — an investigation is now being done to answer that very question that you're raising, Greta. And if that question had been looked into three years ago, possibly his wife wouldn't be — have disappeared at this time.

VAN SUSTEREN: It — and I suppose that it would make — it might be helpful — would it be helpful to exhume her, if she wasn't cremated? We only have 15 seconds.

BADEN: It might be — it would be, and under these circumstances, to see further whether there were any fractures or other injuries that were overlooked initially. There's no evidence that they took X-rays, for example. It would be important to exhume the body and do X-rays to see if there are any subtle fractures.

VAN SUSTEREN: And I must admit, if I were the prosecutor, I'd also take a look at the coroner and the medical examiner to see what was what, if it's...

BADEN: Absolutely.

VAN SUSTEREN: ... as obvious as you say, because I'll tell you, you know, it certainly doesn't look good, even as a layperson reading it, and now I hear you say this. Dr. Baden, thank you, sir.

BADEN: Thank you, Greta.

FYI - It's my understanding from reading various forums she was cremated

Texas group to help in Peterson search
By Hal Dardick and Erika Slife

Tribune staff reporters

12:54 PM CST, November 5, 2007

 The family of Stacy Peterson, the wife of a Bolingbrook police sergeant who disappeared eight days ago, is getting help from a national group in trying to find the 23-year-old mother of two young children.

Tim Miller, founder and director Texas EquuSearch said Monday in Bolingbrook that he has been in contact with the Illinois State Police, who are handling the investigation.

When asked what his group could add, he said, "We know this much: If nothing is done, there's zero chance of locating her."

"We have a lot of resources. We are here. We are ready to get started."


Stacy Peterson's sister, Cassandra Cales, who contacted EquuSearch, said she was comforted by the group's presence. "I was prepared for the worst, but I hope for the best. I just want to bring her home."

Miller would not disclose any search plans. "We're not going to take a chance on her being moved," he said.

EquuSearch's involvement came after groups of volunteers failed to find any trace of Peterson during weekend searches. She went missing Oct. 28, two days after telling her husband, Sgt. Drew Peterson, 53, that she wanted a divorce, according to Stacy's family members.

State police have searched Peterson's home and other locations, including a pond at nearby Clow International Airport, in what is still classified as a missing person case.

Peterson's previous wife, Kathleen Savio, was found drowned in her bathtub in 2004. Her death was ruled accidental, but Will County State's Atty. James Glasgow, who was not in office when that determination was made, is taking another look at the case "with an open mind," said spokesman Charles Pelkie.

Miller's 16-year-old daughter, Laura, was abducted and murdered in 1984, said Cindy Wisdom, case manager for the not-for-profit group founded in 2000. Miller's group initially used horse-mounted volunteers but the search methods have evolved.

They now employ helicopters, all-terrain vehicles, drone aircraft, sonar and other high-technology tools, but people on horseback are still utilized. "There are a lot of places a horse can go that even an ATV can't," Wisdom said. The group has opened cases on more than 800 missing people. It has found 300 and the remains of 76 others, Wisdom said.

"The idea is to bring home missing persons, dead or alive," she said.

In late September, the group found the body of Naomi Arnette, 36, the mother of seven, in a shallow grave in a wooded area about three miles from her house in Sadorus, south of Champaign, she said. Arnettte's husband, Robert, has been charged with her murder.

Police target 7 areas in Peterson search
Texas group poised to assist effort

By Hal Dardick and Erika Slife

Tribune staff reporters

2:50 PM CST, November 5, 2007

 Police today are searching seven "areas of interest" in their effort to find Stacy Peterson, the wife of a Bolingbrook police sergeant who went missing eight days ago, an Illinois State Police spokesman said.

Master Sgt. Louis Gutierrez declined to identify the areas being searched, but said all are based on the weeklong missing person investigation led by his agency.

At each site, seven police officers and a canine team, consisting of a handler and cadaver dog, are looking for Stacy Peterson, a 23-year-old mother of two young children.

Meanwhile, Cassandra Cales, Stacy's sister, contacted Texas EquuSearch and asked for the national organization's help in looking for Stacy, said Cindy Wisdom, case manager for the not-for-profit group founded in 2000 to help authorities find missing persons.

Tim Miller, the group's founder and director, is in the area speaking with Stacy's family and trying to set up a meeting with law-enforcement authorities, Wisdom said. "We don't enter a case unless family or law enforcement contact us, and we don't move forward with a case unless law enforcement agrees to work with us," she added.

Gutierrez said state police had yet to decide whether to bring EquuSearch into the effort. "We have been contacted by them."

After meeting Monday with Stacy's family and friends in Bolingbrook, Miller was asked what his group could add.

"We know this much: If nothing is done, there's zero chance of locating her," he said. "We have a lot of resources. We are here. We are ready to get started."

Miller would not disclose any search plans. "We're not going to take a chance on her being moved," he said.

Cales said she was comforted by the group's presence. "I was prepared for the worst, but I hope for the best. I just want to bring her home."

EquuSearch's involvement came after groups of volunteers failed to find any trace of Peterson during weekend searches. She went missing Oct. 28, two days after telling her husband, Sgt. Drew Peterson, 53, that she wanted a divorce, according to Stacy's family members. She is his fourth wife.

State police have searched Peterson's home and other locations, including a pond at nearby Clow International Airport, in what is still classified as a missing person case.

Peterson's previous wife, Kathleen Savio, was found drowned in her bathtub in 2004. Her death was ruled accidental, but Will County State's Atty.

Greta, You raised a very basic question Friday—how could the Coroner make such an obvious mistake in ruling that the death of Drew Peterson ’s Wife #3 was Accidental Drowning rather than Homicide given the history of spousal abuse, the order of protection, the autopsy evidence of a bloody beating before drowning, and the fact that healthy sober adults don’t drown accidentally in bathtubs. The death should have been classified as a Homicide which would have triggered a full police investigation. The Accidental classification required no further investigation. Similarly, the Coroner’s classification that the second Stanley sister died of Psychogenic Epilepsy—a here-to-fore unknown cause of death—has also raised concerns about the accuracy of death certifications.
Greta, the medical investigation of murder in this country is a national disgrace. One half of all U.S.counties have elected coroners rather than medical examiners who are physicians appointed on the basis of merit. Most coroners have little or no medical or scientific background (usually required only to be a U.S. citizen of voting age) and they have the legal responsibility of determining cause and manner of unnatural deaths. About ten states do not have a single forensic pathologist in the entire state. There are 60 murders every day in the U.S.; in more than half the perpetrator will not be convicted (so much for the perfect murder–most are!!) –and in some murders innocent people may be convicted. The medical/forensic investigation of murder is very uneven in this country and is conducted according to local county or state laws.(Almost all murder is local!) Perhaps we should consider establishing a federal Forensic Sciences General position to create a bully pulpit to improve unnatural death investigation in the entire country as the Surgeon General position has been able to improve public interest and research into natural diseases such as lung cancer, heart disease and breast cancer. michael baden

My cow died last night, so I don't need his bull. I'm with you, I'm just not buying his excuse that he needs to clear his head. More like, "the heat is on and I'm getting the hell outta here!"

He thinks he is as slick as an eel, now saying she called him and said she was leaving him.  :roll:

There was a bloody beating before the drowning and it was still ruled an accident??? The Coroner must be 2 tacos short of a Mexican Platter! That makes NO SENSE at all.

And I never knew some of the facts that Dr Baden mentioned in his email to Greta! WOW. Thanks for posting that and I give a big thumbs up to Dr Baden for speaking out about the outrageous state of equivocal death analysis in the country.

Peterson’s neighbor committed to finding missing woman

By Don Grigas, dgrigas@mysuburbanlife.com
GateHouse News Service
 Mon Nov 05, 2007, 05:22 PM CST


Romeoville, IL -

Sharon Bychowski, next-door neighbor to Stacy Peterson — the Bolingbrook mother of two who has been missing since Oct. 28 — said she is committed to finding Peterson and bringing her “back home.”

“There is no question, we will eventually find Stacy and bring her home,” said Bychowski. “I think I’ve slept two hours in four days, but I don’t care. I owe Stacy that much.”

Bychowski has spearheaded an effort by local volunteers to search for Peterson, and over the weekend more than 75 volunteers searched area wetlands, parks and lakes seeking clues into Peterson’s disappearance.

The search turned up no clues.

But by Monday afternoon, a team from Texas EquuSearch, a nonprofit organization specializing in conducting searches for missing persons, had arrived in Bolingbrook to set up headquarters at a local church, Bychowski said.

“They are out now establishing a headquarters at a local church and will be out looking for Stacy again tomorrow morning,” she said.


A man who identified himself as a member of the search team specializing in underwater sonar said Monday’s windy conditions would delay the search operation until Tuesday.

Illinois State Police spokesman Trooper Mark Dorencz said state investigators had searched  seven locations unsuccessfully on Monday.

Stacy Peterson, 23, wife of Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson, was reported missing by family members seven days ago.

Stacy’s sister, Cassandra Cales, said the last telephone contact she had with her sister was at about 10 a.m. Sunday. After that, all attempts to reach Stacy by cell phone were unsuccessful.

Drew Peterson, a 29-year veteran on the Bolingbrook Police Department, said he spoke to Stacy at about 9 p.m. Sunday, at which time he said Stacy told him she had left him.

At 4 a.m. Monday, family members filed a missing persons report with Illinois State Police.

Family members and friends close to Stacy said she never would have left her two children, Lacy, 2, and Anthony, 4, regardless of the circumstances.

Cales recently said she does not believe her sister is still alive.

“Whether or not I think Drew had anything to do with the disappearance is irrelevant. What is important is that Stacy felt threatened, and recently told me if she were to disappear, it would not be the result of an accident,” Bychowski said.

Stacy Peterson recently told Bychowski she wanted to get out of the marriage, Bychowski said.

Stacy Peterson first met Drew Peterson when she was 17, but over the last six years “Stacy had matured and wanted to get out,” Bychowski said.

Bychowski spent the last two days organizing volunteers from the garage attached to their home, and over two days more than 75 volunteers fanned out to walk through wetlands, parks and along bodies of water seeking clues into Stacey’s disappearance and distributing hundreds of fliers.

Bychowski said she knew Stacy and Drew Peterson for more than three years and Stacy “was a feisty person, quite a person” who regularly visited the Bychowski home.

“Her two children, Lacy and Anthony, were always here and Stacy came over almost daily. Sometimes she would cook for us in our kitchen,” said Bychowski.

Bychowski said she does not believe Drew Peterson’s story that Stacy called him Sunday night and told him she was leaving him for another man.

“That whole story is a farce, a bunch of bologna,” she said.


On Thursday, investigators from the Illinois State Police executed a search warrant for the Peterson home at 6 Pheasant Chase Court.

After a five-hour search, two vehicles were impounded, as well as cartons of other items. State police have not released the contents of the cartons removed from the Peterson home.

“Prior to the search warrant being executed, Drew came over and asked me if I would move his car into our driveway for him. I told him he could move it into the driveway but not the garage. We weren’t going to hide his car for him,” Bychowski said.

“I just didn’t feel comfortable with that request,” she said.


Shortly after Stacy Peterson was listed as missing, Bychowski said, Drew Peterson was asked for a photograph of Stacy Peterson to advertise her disappearance.

“He said he didn’t have one, even though the family went on a cruise recently in which Stacy personally told me she spent about $500 on photographs. To say there was no photograph of Stacy was ridiculous,” Bychowski said.

Authorities continue to list the case as that of a missing person, not a criminal investigation.

Last week the Will County state’s attorney’s office began re-examining the March 2004 case in which Drew Peterson’s third wife, Kathleen Savio, died in her bathtub while the two were going through a divorce.

According to Chuck Pelkie, spokesman for the state’s attorney’s office, “unique and unusual circumstances” surrounding Savio’s death triggered a review of the case.

Attempts to reach the Will County state’s attorney’s office today were unsuccessful.

Bychowski said the goal of the intensified search — she said EquuSearch has, in the past, provided up to 1,500 people as volunteers — is to keep the case fresh and in the public’s eye.

“All it could take is one small clue, something someone might have missed, to help locate Stacy,” Bychowski said.

Last week state police also searched local ponds without success.

Bychowski, who said the four children living in the Peterson home now are being cared for by one of Drew Peterson’s adult sons living in North Aurora, said she no longer is in contact with Drew Peterson.

“When he publicly said Stacy left him and implied she was with someone else, I couldn’t believe it. Drew just threw her under the bus, then backed up over her a few times,” she said.

New Tip Line, High-Tech Help In Search For Woman


Husband In Another High Profile Missing Woman's Case Offers Support To Drew Peterson

BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― While police investigators have been focusing on specific areas searching for missing mother Stacy Peterson, a group of volunteer searchers have brought in some heavy equipment to aid in the search.

As CBS 2's Dana Kozlov reports, the Illinois state police searched nine areas Monday, ending the effort around 6 p.m. A spokesperson says they found nothing.

Stacy Peterson's friends and family say they just want some sort of closure and hope an intensified search will give them that.

The not-for-profit group Equusearch has set up headquarters at the house next door to the Peterson's. The professional search team is looking for a command center, recruiting volunteers and will soon launch a full scale search for the 23-year-old mother of two.

The director of the group announced he would bring high-tech equipment, horse riders and volunteers to the search, but wouldn't say where they'll start. "There may be somebody who knows where she is. If we share it, we're not going to take a chance on her being moved," Tim Miller said.

Dennis Watters is the latest person to join the search. He's in town assisting Texas Equusearch and plans to use his sonar equipment to scan area lakes, ponds, rivers and quarries.

"We've recovered numerous bodies with it," Watters said. "It's gonna allow us to take very detailed pictures of the lakes and quarries in the area."


Peterson's been missing for more than a week. Her husband, Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, says he last spoke to his wife on October 28.

Miller says he hopes his cadre of volunteers can help.

"I think there's strength in numbers, so once we get our plans together we'll be calling for volunteers," Miller said.

Stacy Peterson's friends and family say she recently told them she was in a manipulative and controlling marriage.

"She did say to many of us, not just me in confidence, but many of us, that if anything happened to her it was not an accident. He killed her," said her friend and neighbor Sharon Bychowski.

The mystery is similar to the case of Lisa Stebic, the Plainfield mother who vanished last April. Her husband Craig Stebic, told the Chicago Sun-Times he relates to the Bolingbrook cop, saying, "I know what he's going through."

"Craig has cut us off from seeing Lisa's children. And yet I was almost speechless to hear that he found time to make sympathetic comments about drew Peterson," Melanie Greenberg, Lisa Stebic's cousin, said.

Bolingbrook police said they investigated 18 domestic complaints between Drew Peterson and his third wife, Kathleen Savio, who died accidentally in a bathtub in 2004.

"She told me that he would kill her; it would look like an accident but it wasn't," Savio's sister, Sue Doman, said.

Doman said Savio asked her to take care of her kids.

The Bolingbrook police chief said there were no domestic complaints between Drew Peterson and Stacy Peterson before now.

Friends and family have set up a new Web site, FindStacyPeterson.com, in hopes someone can provide clues into Stacy's disappearance.

Also, the Illinois State Police have set up a Stacy Peterson Tip Line at (815) 740-0678.

Texas Equusearch helped comb Aruba for teenager Natallee Holloway two years ago. She has never been found.

Now here's a smart group of law officers who are letting TES come in to help them. I had the pleasure of riding with Tim Miller and Donna Jou's father when they were in town concerning the missing young girl, Donna Jou.

Too bad LAPD and others powers in the LA tourist town and tourist county, Orange County didn't let TES come in right away. I even saw areas that could have been of great interest for evidence but as the weeks, months went on the area was clovered or cleaned.... who knows what evidence is lost now.

MISSING MOM SEARCH TEAM NEEDS HELP
HUNDREDS OF VOLUNTEERS HOPED FOR TO LOOK FOR STACY PETERSON TODAY


November 6, 2007
By Stefano Esposito sun-times news group


She has not slept in days. She's all but certain her sister is dead. But Cassandra Cales said Monday evening that the search for Bolingbrook mother Stacy Peterson must go on.

"She is giving me the strength and energy I need to push on," Cales said of her sister. "I haven't really slept in six or seven days. I try to sleep, but I just can't."

An all-volunteer Texas team that helped in the search for missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway in Aruba is expected to lead search efforts this morning, Cales said.

The Texas EquuSearch Mounted Search and Recovery Team is equipped with divers, helicopters, dog teams, horses and foot teams. The founder of the team, Tim Miller, said he will have 15 people from his group but hopes "hundreds" of volunteers will show up for the search at 8 a.m. today at the Westbrook Christian Church in Bolingbrook, not far from the Peterson home. Plans are to search five "water areas" and two quarries.

"We have been extremely successful in the past," he said, adding that his team has helped find 250 people alive and the remains of 73 other people.

Another of the missing woman's relatives wonders where police investigators were Saturday and Sunday, when dozens of volunteers combed the area near Peterson's home looking for clues.

"Where are the police on this one? What are they doing?" said Suzan Robison, one of Peterson's aunts.

A spokesman for the state police said Monday there's a reason police weren't out searching during the weekend.

"We were actually in the process of organizing searches for [Monday]," said Trooper Mark Dorencz, a state police spokesman. "I can assure you we are working on this case day and night." Dorencz said teams of eight officers and a search dog focused Monday on seven areas, which he declined to identify.

Are investigators talking to Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson?

"We are focusing on Stacy and finding Stacy," Dorencz said.

Although Stacy Peterson told relatives in the days leading up to her disappearance last week that she was afraid of her husband and wanted a divorce, Drew Peterson is not considered a suspect in the case, Dorencz said.

"He has been cooperative in the investigation," he said.

Bolingbrook Police Chief Raymond McGury said the department received no reports of problems in the marriage.

Fresh look at a past death
Investigators will try to talk to Stacy Peterson's children to see if they know anything of her whereabouts.
"We would like to talk to the kids," said Charles B. Pelkie, spokesman for State's Attorney James Glasgow. "We will be taking steps to make that happen in the near future."

Stacy Peterson is Drew Peterson's fourth wife. His third wife died under mysterious circumstances in March 2004. Glasgow is turning a fresh eye to that case to see if the death of Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, warrants criminal charges.

Stacy and Drew Peterson have two children, ages 2 and 4. Drew Peterson also has two minor children from his marriage to Savio and two older children from a previous marriage.

Another missing mother
Glasgow's office has been trying to get information from the children of another missing mother. Their efforts to speak with the children of Lisa Stebic, of Plainfield, have been thwarted by their father, Craig Stebic, who police have labeled "a person of interest" in the case.
Lisa Stebic has been missing for more than six months. Searches and billboards have failed to turn up any clues to her whereabouts. Police initially talked to her children, but the state's attorney's office would like to do a more in-depth interview. At the advice of his lawyer, Craig Stebic has forbidden that.

"We made it clear we want to talk to these children, too," Pelkie said. "It's the same position. We'll be taking steps in the near future to find out what these children know about the disappearance of their mother."

"We would like to talk to the kids," said Charles B. Pelkie, spokesman for State's Attorney James Glasgow. "We will be taking steps to make that happen in the near future."

Wonder why they have not talked to the kids yet?  Maybe Drew will not let them, like Craig Stebic.  It just seems to me, regardless of your feelings for your spouse, good or bad, that is the other parent of your child.  Unless you have something to hide, wouldn't you want for the sake of your children to help find that person and if your children for their own sakes want to talk to the police, or might could help, wouldn't it be encouraged?

I can tell you, I have absolutely NOTHING for my husband's ex-wife.  His daughter at 15 went missing with a friend in Fl about the same time as Natalee.  Fortunately, it was a couple of hours, and the out come was good, but still, when my step daughter's mother called distraught, to give us the details, in the midst of her dragging him through court, no less, all of that went out the window and everything focused on finding this kid.  My heart went out to her. 

I guess my point is, if you love your kids and you aren't hiding anything, mad or not that she may have ran off with some one, do what ever it takes to find her for your kids ...

This is just infuriating to me.  I know they are looking for evidence and have to build a case, but I am pretty sure Ray Charles could see what has happened here.

God Bless Tim and the other searchers and I pray they find her.

Volunteers Join Search For Stacy Peterson

Steve Miller Reporting
 
CHICAGO (WBBM) - The search for Stacy Peterson, the Bolingbrook woman missing for eight days now, is getting some help from a Texas- based group of volunteers.

WBBM's Steve Miller reports.

The group is called Equusearch, and its founder is Tim Miller, whose own daughter was abducted and murdered in Texas in 1984.

Stacy Peterson's sister Cassandra Cales says she is relieved now that Miller and his group have come to Bolingbrook to help search.

"We spoke until about 4 in the morning and we discussed everything... and he just took over.  And it felt good."

"Now that Tim Miller is here with Equusearch, I just feel like ten pounds of weight off my shoulders, you know?  It doesn't mean I'm stopping.  I'm still continuing."


Illinois State Police say nine areas were searched yesterday. Each team had a canine unit - and that an airplane searched each of the nine areas.

State police have set up a hotline for tips on Stacy Peterson's whereabouts: 815-740–0678.

I have tremendous confidence in TES!  My prayers are with them today for this search.

Klaas will keep us updated, I am sure and will be watching for any news.

Maybe my divorce was exceptional but we would never do anything that would negatively effect our kids and they are adults now.  This man is our age and old enough to know better.  But then considering what he is suspected of, I guess failure to consider the children is minor in comparison with what he may have done.

Has war been declared on women and children and I missed it?  What's going on these days!

Court filings tell story

November 6, 2007
By STEWART WARREN STAFF WRITER
JOLIET -- Although we don't know much about Stacy Peterson's disappearance, we know other things.

They are found in files at the Will County Courthouse.

Knit together, these facts tell something about Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson, the missing woman's much-older husband. For example, while married to another woman, Drew Peterson, 53, owned several businesses and life insurance policies -- and that third wife later was found drowned in a bathtub without any water.

Fourth wife Stacy Peterson, a 23-year-old mother of two, hasn't been seen since Oct. 28. The young woman was supposed to help family members paint a house, but never showed. Drew Peterson claims his wife simply deserted him, but a family member reported her missing.


Savio's death

In early 2002, Drew Peterson and Kathleen Savio, the third wife, began divorce proceedings, according to court documents. They had been married about 10 years and had two children. In late 2003, Will County Judge Susan O'Leary dissolved their marriage. Their divorce was "bifurcated," in this case meaning they were allowed to divorce before their common property was divided, according to court documents.

Then in March 2004, a neighbor found Savio dead in the dry bathtub at her Bolingbrook home. It was an accident, Will County Coroner Patrick K. O'Neil ruled. The 40-year-old woman suffered blunt trauma and a lacerated scalp, injuries consistent with a fall that could have knocked her unconscious, according to the inquest. By that time, Drew Peterson already was involved with the then-Stacy Cales, who was 17 when they met.

After Savio died, there was a Will County probate case to settle her financial affairs. Well-known local lawyer Dick Kavanagh was the public administrator of Will County, a governor-appointed position. Simply put, the public administrator tries to find the fairest way to settle an estate after a death, among other things.


A will emerges

A year after Savio's death and the beginning of the legal proceedings to settle her affairs, a will emerged. It was submitted in court on March 23, 2005. Hand-written in capital letters, it was scrawled across two pieces of lined notebook paper and witnessed by Alex J. Morelli and Gary L. Marcolina.

A man named Alex Morelli is a Bolingbrook police officer, and Herald News archives show a man named Gary Marcolina is a developer in the Crest Hill area.

"This day March 2nd 1997 Drew Walter Peterson and Kathleen Savio Peterson, both being of sound body and mind, do hereby bequeath all of our worldly possessions to each other in the event of either of our individual deaths," begins the will filed with court documents.

If they died together, the couple wanted everything to go to certain people, among them Tom and Kris Peterson, their children, and Eric Drew Peterson and Stephen Paul Peterson, Drew Peterson's children from another relationship.

The will lists some of their assets:


• A Golden Rule life insurance policy valued at $100,000


• A Monumental Life Insurance policy valued at $125,000


• A Prudential Life Insurance policy valued at $308,137.59 -- "Beneficiary Merchants Bank Oswego to pay off note for Sud's Pub in Montgomery," according to the will.


• Bolingbrook Police Pension fund of more than $50,000


• A piece of real estate listed as 9 Clay Court, Montgomery


• The Blue Lightning Corp., or Sud's Pub, 1250 S. Broadway, Montgomery


• Da Page Corp., Fast 'N' Accurate Graphics, 87 Eisenhower South, Lombard


• A quarter interest in CMYK Corp., listed as a printing business in "Lombard-Naperville," according to the will.


Division of property issues

The will names James B. Carroll, Drew Peterson's uncle, executor of the estate, according to a document filed in court by Kavanagh, who apparently had some concerns.
"After my appointment as administrator, I conferred with attorney Harry Smith with respect to the status of the property settlement portion of the divorce proceeding ... (He) advised me that there were three major issues with respect to the division of property ... 1. Whether Kathleen's estate would be entitled to any portion of Drew Peterson's pension; 2. The valuation of the business known as the Blue Lightning Corp., which has been sold with all of the proceeds going to Drew Peterson; and 3. The value of the house, and whether Kathleen Peterson's estate would be entitled to receive not only her one-half of the proceeds of any sale, but an additional portion of the remaining one-half as an offset for the cash taken by Drew Peterson from the sale of the (bar)," Kavanaugh wrote in court documents.

On April 8, 2005, Will County Judge Michael Powers entered a judgment in the financial aspects of the divorce case. It awarded Drew Peterson the Blue Lightning Corp. and all the proceeds from the sale of the couple's home, according to the court documents filed by Kavanagh. The judgment also mentions what seems to be a fourth life insurance policy.

"(It) provided that Drew Peterson would not be obligated to fund any college expenses for the minor children of the parties due to the fact that life insurance on the life of Kathleen in the amount of $1 million had been payable to the children," according to the document.

As part of the judgment, Carroll agreed that some money from Savio's estate should go to someone other than the four children. "The effect of the judgment was to transfer anywhere from $144,117.65 to $288,235.31 (one-half to all of the proceeds of the home sale) from the four children who were the beneficiaries of the estate ... to Drew Peterson," according to court documents.

Kavanagh didn't approve of that move, apparently.

"The actions of (Carroll) were not in the best interest of the estate or the beneficiaries," he wrote in a court document.

All she knew was abuse, turmoil

November 6, 2007
By Jennifer Golz Staff writer
Abuse, alcoholism and instability were key characteristics of the Cales children's household growing up.

It may explain why Stacy Peterson, 23, found what she thought to be stability and security in the arms of a man 30 years her senior, Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson.


Linda Cales, 54, last saw her stepdaughter five years ago, but has remained in contact with her throughout the years. Cales married Stacy's father, Anthony Cales, in the mid-90s and remained in the family and children's lives until their divorce in 2002.

"She was blinded by the security," Linda Cales said of Stacy's marriage to an older man. "(Drew Peterson) is the same age as her father, in fact he's a year older than her dad."

But it wasn't a father-figure that Stacy was seeking, Linda Cales said, at least not a father like her own.

"The abuse was there," she said. "He would want to discipline the kids and spank them when he was drunk. He would say things to the girls like, 'You better be nothing like your slut mom.'"

It's been nearly 10 years since Stacy's mother, Christie Cales, has been heard from, as she has seemingly disappeared without a trace. But in the early years of Anthony and Linda Cales' marriage, Christie was still around.

"She always up and vanished and then all of a sudden she would show up wanting to see the kids," she said. "She wasn't exactly the model mother.

"I was taking care of the kids and they looked at me as if I was Mom."

When Linda and Anthony Cales decided to divorce around 2000, it was their stepmother with whom the kids wanted to live, according to Linda Cales.

Seeking stability
According to Dr. Nadia Persun, associate professor of psychology of North Central College, children need a routine in order to feel safe and stable.
She says Stacy may not have had the ability to recognize danger because of her unstable past.

"A child who is misguided and handicapped emotionally may be obedient and submissive, and if someone comes with ill intentions, they may be manipulated because they may lack confidence and an internal compass," Persun said.

And at just 17 years old, Stacy began dating a married Drew Peterson, who was then 47.

"His wife (the now deceased Kathleen Savio) divorced him because she found out about the affair," Linda Cales said. "At that point Anthony should have stepped in.

"If I would have known about it, I would have flown to Illinois and said, "Oh no, this is not going on."

Her father's alcoholism, coupled with abuse and the lack of a home base may have contributed to Stacy having a lack of identity and therefore seeking comfort in an older man who could tell her what to do and who she was, Persun said.

"It makes you more likely to become prey to someone if they have ill intentions because you are more hungry for affection and more in need to find stability," she said.

Linda Cales says Stacy's mistake was telling Drew Peterson she wanted a divorce, something friends and family have confirmed since the mother of two went missing nine days ago.

"You get the hell out and then file," she said. "If you're afraid of the man, you don't tell him you want to divorce him.

"I know Stacy," Linda Cales said. "I was her stepmom for six years; she would not have left her kids."

Search Team Combs Forest For Stacy Peterson

Team Founder: 'Something Probably Bad Happened To Her'
 Reporting

Mike Puccinelli ROMEOVILLE, Ill. (CBS) ― A national organization known for finding missing persons joined Tuesday in the search for Stacy Peterson, the 23-year-old Bolingbrook mother who has now been gone for nine days.

As CBS 2 West Suburban Bureau Chief Mike Puccinelli reports, Peterson disappeared just one day before she was supposed to meet her divorce attorney. She was married to Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, who was three decades her senior.

The non-profit group Texas Equusearch has set up headquarters at the house next to the Peterson, and has now launched a full-scale search for the mother of two.

On Tuesday, Equusearch brought in more than a dozen professional searchers, accompanied by about 30 volunteers. The group's leader said the cold conditions likely kept some more volunteers away on Tuesday.

The leader, Tim Miller, also said the winds Tuesday will prevent them from launching their drone aircraft, but ground and water searches should not be tremendously affected by the adverse conditions.

"We're here for one reason, again, and that's because Stacy's missing," Miller said. "Unfortunately, I think enough time has gone by that we still hold that little glimmer of hope, but we've worked 790 of these cases, and past experience lets us know that something probably bad happened to her."

As of 11 a.m., searchers were looking for Stacy on the Isle a la Cache Forest Preserve, located on an island in the Des Plaines River.

Drew Peterson has not shown up, and so far has not assisted in any of the searches. He said he last saw his wife Sunday morning, and claimed to have spoken to his wife Sunday night. He said she told him she was leaving him.

But Stacy's family calls this absurd, and said she would never willingly leave her children.

Friends and family have set up a new Web site, FindStacyPeterson.com, in hopes someone can provide clues into Stacy's disappearance.

Also, the Illinois State Police have set up a Stacy Peterson Tip Line at (815) 740-0678

 Donations needed!!
I just returned from the command center in Bolingbrook. I took coffee & instant hot chocolate & cups etc. I was shocked, there were hardly any donations at all.

In fact, one of the volunteers had just left to go to a grocery store to buy things.

I have notified several local radio stations & tv stations to get the word out. I could not believe that there was hardly anything there, figured that they would hardly need what I had brought.

Anyway, I picked up flyers & donation sheets for hubby to put up at work.

I saw one helicopter flying near the church and about 3 tv stations in the parking lot of the church.

There were 3 volunteers in the small room at the church, all wearing green shirts with findrachel.com on the back of the shirts.

There wasn't much activity by the church, the volunteers had left out of there already.

On my way home, I saw a Buffalo Grove, Il. ( which is up north of Bolingbrook) squad car about 2 miles from the Peterson home, by a creek with a search dog.

I went past the rock quarry but if they were there, you could not see as the driveway in is long & you cannot see much.

Hopefully, the radio & tv stations will get the word out that they need donations.

They have no phones in the room, other than their personal cell phones, so there is no way to reach them, but just drop off donations, they will be greatly appreciated.

They did not ask me to do this, but I felt like I should try to get more help for the volunteers who are giving up their time & effort.

Someone needs to call some of the local restaurants and stores to bring food and water and beverages for the searchers.

I think someone would respond if asked directly.  Each will think another doing it.  I hope they just ask directly and say what they want--sandwiches, drinks, whatever but a specific direct request would stand the best chance of getting a response.

This is Odd…by Greta Van Susteren
Not home?

I am on the phone with my producer Steph Watts in Illinois and here is what he is telling me: the Illinois State Troopers have been to Sgt. Peterson’s house twice (two thirty yesterday afternoon and again at ten thirty last night.) They have some papers to serve him….we don’t know if subpoena, search warrant, arrest warrant, grand jury summons or something insignifcant but here is the headline: they can’t find him (or at least that is what Steph is hearing…)

An hour ago Steph spoke to Sgt. Peterson’s good friend Ric who confirms that Sgt. Peterson is not at his house. However, Ric is in telephone communication with Sgt. Peterson.

It is very possible - and even reasonable - that Sgt. Peterson would want to get away from the glare of the media. The media is parked out in front of his house. What strikes me as odd is the thought - we have no proof - that the Illinois State Troopers don’t know where he is. Would you not think they would stay in constant communication? Maybe they are and we just don’t have that information…

As soon as we have an update, we will post it.

Smaller-Than-Expected Crew Continues Search For Peterson
Mom Missing Since Oct. 29

POSTED: 1:32 pm CST November 6, 2007
UPDATED: 2:11 pm CST November 6, 2007


BOLINGBROOK -- A smaller-than-expected group of about 40 volunteer searchers turned out today to poke through brush near the Des Plaines River in hopes of finding out what happened to missing Bolingbrook mom Stacy Peterson.



(http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o100/klaasen3/Sub2/Search1.jpg)

(http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o100/klaasen3/Sub2/Search2.jpg)

(http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o100/klaasen3/Sub2/Search3.jpg)

 

The cold, windy conditions kept a volunteer group, Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery Team, from using search dogs, horses and an aerial drone in the hunt for the 23-year-old Peterson, who was reported missing on Oct. 29.

That left the bulk of the searching up to about 40 volunteers who gathered at a Bolingbrook church this morning, then spread out to several sites in the Bolingbrook area.

That number “is far less than what we anticipated,” said Tim Miller, director of the Texas-based search team.

“We’re kind of getting off to a slow start, a cold start,” Miller added.

One group of about 15 searchers waded through brush and tall grass along a utility right-of-way not far from the Des Plaines River near Romeoville.

“That wasn’t easy at all,” said Fred Stanford, as he pushed through brush 10 feet tall.

Aside from finding several old shotgun shells and a few empty, rusting 55-gallon drums, the searchers there turned up no signs of Peterson by 11:15 a.m.

Some searchers knew Peterson while others like Stanford were strangers but wanted to help.

“I just live in the area and think it’s my duty to get out and do this,” said Stanford, a Bolingbrook resident.

Suz Elder, who brought her granddaughter along with her in the search, went to church with Peterson and decided she should do what she can to find the missing woman.

“She’s a friend of mine,” Elder said. “I guess we’re just trying to eliminate the places she could be."

OTR Producer Steph Watts On the Phone Right Now ! What’s Going On At Sgt. Peterson’s Home?
by Greta Van Susteren

WHAT IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW AT SGT. PETERSON’S HOUSE? AND WHERE IS HE?

5:49pm - Producer Steph Watts is on the phone to me right now……he is outside Sgt. Peterson’s home and there is no other media. As Steph was just standing there,  3 unmarked and 2 marked police cars arrived. Two of the unmarked cars pulled into the driveway…police got out and went around to the back of the house….gone about 5 minutes…then returned to their cars and left. They had papers in their hands.

The other unmarked left a short time after and now the two marked cars remain.

Note: they did NOT knock on the front door and Sgt. Peterson’s friend Ric told Steph awhile ago that Sgt. Peterson is in his home.

What’s going on? We are trying to figure it out…..

In the link above, there are photos from this morning's search. I just returned from the afternoon search as I had to get home to tend to earthly matters.

I was teamed with Matt in this morning's search and in the photo on this news article, Matt is the one with the orange gloves.

We covered a lot of ground but there is sooooo much more to cover. Those who wish to searhc for Lisa should consider joining in the search for Stacy because you never know what you will find.

I found a bone that is most likely a deer bone, it was old. Not too far from is was a dear skull as Matt expertly revealed to us along with the young one's approximate age based on the teeth structure.

Tim Miller wasn't able to get any of the drones in the air due to the forceful winds. He called me on my cell and asked if I had any contacts that may be able to assist there since yesterday I sent them the contact info for Clow Airport. Long story short, on such late notice (less than an hour ago), we couldn't get any planes or helicopters for the search effort but we will have some tomorrow morning. Tim said it's hard to tell how long their team will be here but they should be here at least till the weekend and beyond that just depends.

The search will continue tomorrow with volunteers meeting at the church at 8:00 AM. For anyone interested, please join the effort and meet us tomorrow morning at 1175 Lily Cache Lane, Bolingbrook.

I saw Melanie when I first walked in and she was there when I returned from the 1st search about 11:30 AM. We set out on our 2nd search at about 12:40 PM. Melanie was still there and was giving interviews throughout the day, I presume.

We could use more help if anyone can volunteer the time.

Peterson Searchers Find Clue At Construction Site


Mike Puccinelli BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― Professional searchers and volunteers stepped up their search for a missing Bolingbrook woman on Tuesday.

CBS 2 West Suburban Bureau Chief Mike Puccinelli reports they may have stumbled upon a clue to the disappearance of Stacy Peterson.

The 23-year-old mother of two has been missing for nine days. Tuesday, more than 40 searchers spent most of the day combing through wooded areas in and around Bolingbrook for any sign of her.

They were joined by professional searchers from Texas Equusearch, a group that's assisted in more than 700 searches around the world. They did find something interesting at a construction site. The founder of the group says he plans to show the find to police first thing Wednesday morning because the area could possibly have been used to conceal a body. However, search leaders would not elaborate on the find.

Also Wednesday, the family of Stacy Peterson is calling on voluntters to meet at Westbrook Christian Church, 1175 Lily Cache Lane in Bolingbrook at 8am to join the search for the missing woman. They say they need all the help they can get.

Pam Bosco, a close family friend of Stacy Peterson's family they still have hope, and while they realize the searchers could return with bad news, they're anxious for any information. "We all need closure to some degree, so whatever the searchers bring to us will be an answer," Bosco said.

She also said Drew Peterson, Stacy Peterson's husband, is not allowing Bosco to see the couple's two children and she expressed concern about Drew Peterson's demeanor.

"I don't think there's been any expression of any emotion," Bosco said. "Drew, if you're concerned, if you're angry, saddened, something, we want to know how you feel, help us, help us find Stacy."

Drew Peterson has not assisted in any of the searches. He said he last saw his wife the morning of Sunday, Oct. 28, and claimed to have spoken to his her that night. He said she told him she was leaving him.

CBS 2 also contacted one of Drew Peterson's sons from his first marriage. He didn't want to go on camera, in part he said, out of fear of his dad.

Friends and family have set up a new Web site, FindStacyPeterson.com, in hopes someone can provide clues into Stacy's disappearance.

Illinois State Police have set up a Stacy Peterson Tip Line at (815) 740-0678.

Or afraid of what he might do later?  Maybe more needed not from that area who would not have to live around him.  Better yet, put him in jail while searching.

I know, I know they have to have evidence and all that but still, then people would know where he was and he couldn't see who was searching.  Maybe they have found something.

I think if Stacy was alive, she would have spoken out by now.

New Search Warrant Executed In Search For Woman

BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― Prosecutors say a new search warrant has been issued and executed for the home of a Bolingbrook police sergeant whose wife has disappeared.

As CBS 2's Mai Martinez reports, the Petersons neighbors said investigators arrived at the home at around 8 p.m. Tuesday night. They were escorted by Bolingbrook police. Neighbors also say that Stacy Peterson's husband, Drew Peterson, was not home at the time of the search.

Neighbors told CBS 2 the state investigator police went into the home with a nylon bag and a camera. They reportedly spent less than an hour inside, but when the investigators came out, neighbors say, they clearly had something in the bag but it was not apparent what that was.

This is the second search state police have executed at the Peterson home since Stacy Peterson was reported missing last week. The missing woman's friends and family say Tuesday night's search is a good sign that the investigation into her disappearance is moving forward.

"My street has been nothing but cars to cars, and we've all been in there, in the entire neighborhood really waiting for what's going to happen," said Stacy Peterson's neighbor and friend Sharon Bychowski. "We just really want to make you guys focus that our ultimate focus here is not about Drew tonight. It's really about finding Stacy Peterson and bringing her home."



Meanwhile, volunteers and members of the nonprofit search group Texas EquuSearch spent the day looking for 23-year-old Stacy Peterson, who has been missing since October 29.

CBS 2 West Suburban Bureau Chief Mike Puccinelli reports they may have stumbled upon a clue to the disappearance of Stacy Peterson.

Searches for missing Bolingbrook woman come up empty
By Matthew Walberg and Erika Slife

Tribune staff reporters

6:37 AM CST, November 7, 2007

 Scores of police and volunteers combed more than a dozen areas in search of a missing Bolingbrook woman without success Tuesday.

Illinois State Police investigators searched for Stacy Peterson at five locations—using all-terrain vehicles, cadaver-sniffing dogs and an airplane fitted with infrared sensors—but found no sign of her, said state police spokesman Luis Gutierrez.

Meanwhile, nearly 50 volunteers joined a search organized by a private group, Texas EquuSearch, to comb six wooded areas and three bodies of water around Romeoville and Bolingbrook.

The group's founder and director, Tim Miller, said searchers were looking for any patches of earth that appeared to have been recently disturbed. Miller said a few sites identified in Tuesday's search would be re-examined Wednesday, including one at a construction site.

Investigators Tuesday night executed a new search warrant at the home of Peterson's husband, Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, 53. Will County state's attorney's office spokesman Charles Pelkie said he couldn't offer any details about the warrant.

Peterson, 23, was last seen by her husband on Oct. 28 when she left the couple's home on Pheasant Chase Court to help her sister Cassandra Cales paint a home.

Her husband told police he last heard from her that night, when she called him on her cell phone.

He later said his wife called to tell him that she was leaving him, and that he believed she was with someone else—a statement her family disputes.

Cales pleaded Tuesday for more volunteers after fewer people than expected showed up to join the search, and Miller said a similar missing-person case in Ohio drew 1,800 volunteers. "We didn't have as many people today as we were hoping for, but that's OK," Miller said. "I think the weather conditions held us back."

Sherrie Mills, a close friend of Stacy Peterson, said she has slept only about three hours in the last day and a half, spending much of her time driving around looking for locations where a body might be hidden.

"It's very frustrating," Mills said. She praised investigators for the way they were dealing with friends and family and for their quick response to tips.

"I think the state police are doing a great job," Mills said. "I feel . . . [they are] trying to cover as much ground as they can."

Drew Peterson started dating Stacy Cales when he was 47 and she was 17, and they married two years later. But her family said the marriage of four years had grown troubled, saying the sergeant—married three previous times—was controlling. They said that two days before her disappearance Stacy Peterson told her husband she wanted a divorce and told her sister that she feared for her life.

Gutierrez said investigators went to the Petersons' home Monday with papers for the police sergeant, but no one answered the door. He would not describe the papers, saying only that they were part of the investigation.

Greta,
I want to clear this up. So much happend right before I went on the show, Steph called to tell me that he was running late due to the State Police being at Drew’s. Right after that Drew called me, and contiuned to call during the broadcast.I made a mistake when you ask me the last time I talked to him, I sorry but as my suspicions grow, This is taking it’s toll on me, I feel like I am walking around in a daze. The phone calls that I recieved from Drew right before your show shook me up. ( yes I have access to my phone records to prove he was calling me.)

Not sure.  If he was looking over to another room, maybe someone was watching from afar, through a crack in a door.

Mim's is definately looking at someone for reassurance.

Update from Bolingbrook, Illinois…. From The Producers on the Ground There
by Greta Van Susteren

If you watched last night’s show, you know that last night (about 8pm-9m central time) another search warrant was executed at the home of Sgt. Drew Peterson and his missing wife Stacy. Sgt. Peterson was NOT home at the time. Something was carried out of the house but we have no idea what it was.

Right now our producer and former LAPD Mark Furham are on the ground in Bolingbrook continuing to cover the story. They are speaking to people who know Stacy and Drew…family members….neighbors….searchers…police etc. (And here is a tease: Steph just called me with, “you won’t believe this!” He then told me and I agreed it was weird….and said, “get a second source.” If what Steph told me can be confirmed, there is another very strange development in this story. (It is so strange that I dare not mention it until we are 300 per cent sure!!) Check back here because I will post it the SECOND we get it second sourced.

I agree he is looking at someone.  Was he looking at someone who set up the camera in his house.  I found this guy to be very strange and he was hiding something.  I keep watching his actions and I did notice when he slipped up.  What I am wondering is if this guy help his friend dispose of her body.

Maybe Mim is trying to signal with his eyes where Peterson is or being held hostage or something.

If Peterson has a cell phone himself, I can't believe they do not know exactly where he is.  Maybe just watching to see what he will do next.

I wonder what Greta finds so strange and if she will tell us.

Could that police report be enough with all the injuries listed in it?  I could understand the water could have slowly leaked out of the tub, mine does leak slowly, too, but perhaps there were injuries that were just too inconsistent with a fall in a tub?  I mean something like injuries on both the front and back of the head for example.  Or scratches that would be just totally inconsistent with something happeneing in a bath tub.

I don't know but I do think that having him off the streets might also make people talk more.  Problem is, unless he is held without bail, he might have the money to make bail and be right back out again silencing people who might otherwise tell what they know.

But wouldn't it have to be Savio as they are still looking for Peterson and have no evidence of anything yet?

We had a case here a few years ago that seems eerily similar.

Here's all I could find (but I didn't look too hard).

Greensboro, N.C. - Pretrial motions in murder trial of Tim Buczkowski, who is accused of drowning his first wife in a bathtub. He is expected to be tried later on a charge of drowning his second wife in a hot tub in Pennsylvania.

BTW- he was convicted...

This was posted at the CTV forum:

Just found this at: http://www.state.il.us/COURT/Circui...GrandJuror.asp:

THE GRAND JURY
The Constitution and laws of Illinois provide that no person shall be brought to trial for a crime punishable by death or by imprisonment in the penitentiary unless either the initial charge has been brought by indictment of a grand jury or the person has been given a prompt preliminary hearing and a judge has found probable cause.

In cases presented to the grand jury, the grand jury has a dual function. It determines that a person should be charged or prosecuted for a criminal act when it finds there is probable cause to believe the person has committed an offense. At the same time, it protects the innocent from unfounded accusation of crime and from the trouble, expense, and anxiety of a trial when there is, in fact, insufficient evidence to believe the accused is guilty of any criminal offense. The grand jury thus stands between the citizen and the State, pledged to bring before the Court, to answer to a charge of having committed a crime, persons against whom there is evidence of guilt and to prevent the unjust indictment of those who are accused of crime without sufficient evidence or because of private motives or popular feelings.

From what I saw on Greta last night Dr. Baden said the autopsy shows she had been beaten up.  She had blood soaked hair and dozen different bruises on her body. Fresh bruises on her body.

Right San - how did they miss that? or was this all about corruption? I think I can take a guess knowing what his job title actually is...

A few years ago . . . maybe like 9 . . . there was a Treasury or State Dept employee that was found dead on a Monday or Tuesday.. right after the Thanksgiving weekend. Well, she apparently took off all her clothes and then beat herself to a bloody pulp....and guess what - yep..ruled suicide.

Grand Jury …

by Greta Van Susteren
As many of you know, before I jumped ship from law to media, I was a criminal defense lawyer.  If I were Sgt. Peterson’s lawyer - guilty or innocent - I would not let him testify before the grand jury without a grand of immunity.  And, in usual circumstances, this is not the type of case where a prosecutor would give a spouse immunity.

I doubt a prosecutor will give him immunity…if I were the DA, I would not….no matter what we all should think (eg presume innocent), we are suspicious of him, and thus he is the liikely TARGET of the grand jury and no prosecutor in his right mind would give the target immunity. Greta

The third wife had written a letter to the DA that in the event of her death, he should be suspected and yet that just got ignored?

Message from Colleague FNC’s Jamie Colby
by Greta Van Susteren

My colleague Jamie Colby (also a lawyer…and she was in Illinois last week) just messaged me that Sgt.Peterson’s wife #3 (the one who died in a bathtub) was NOT cremated.  This means that the authorities may elect to exhume her body in their re- investigation.  What would they look for? Dr. Baden can tell us best…but I do know one thing, they would look for fractures since that might indicate this was not an accidental death.  It would not be a proof - only a clue indicating.

Of course they also will look at other important clues: hair full of blood….bruises ..

I suppose a defense attorney could say somthing hit her on top of the head and then she got into the bath tub, etc.  They always explain everything away no matter how farfetched.

Peterson searchers include group on horseback
By Matthew Walberg and Erika Slife

Tribune staff reporters

1:38 PM CST, November 7, 2007

 Volunteers on foot and horseback, in boats and airplanes, resumed their search Wednesday morning for Stacy Peterson, 23, the Bolingbrook mother who has been missing for 11 days.

Close to 60 volunteers turned out, including a team of eight women and their horses from the Fox Valley Trail Riders. The women--carrying machetes, pliers and fence cutters--are experienced in clearing brush, said Marni McClennan, owner of Newark-based Saddle Up Stables and organizer of the equestrian search group.

Meanwhile, volunteers with sonar equipment resumed their search of a nearby body of water on private property in Plainfield, said Dennis Watters, of St. Louis, who volunteered the use of his equipment. "I think we're going to pick up where we left off yesterday."

Tim Miller, director of the non-profit search and rescue group Texas EquuSearch, which is organizing the volunteer effort, said dogs and all-terrain vehicles were also in use this morning at four locations, and he expected a helicopter and small plane would scan the areas this afternoon.

"Everyday we'll generate more people, and it will get bigger and bigger and that's good," Miller said. "There's a lot of strength in numbers, and the more area we cover, the chances are we come up with something."

Police suspended their search effort Wednesday morning in order to review evidence that has been collected, said Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Luis Gutierrez.

"They're re-evaluating all the evidence they have and are deciding where to go with the case," Gutierrez said. He said he did not know whether there was a possibility that the case could be reclassified as a death investigation or a criminal investigation today.

Stacy Peterson was last seen by her husband, veteran Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, on Oct. 28 when she left the couple's home on Pheasant Chase Court to help her sister Cassandra Cales paint a home.

Drew Peterson, 53, told police he last heard from her that night, when she called him on her cell phone.

He later said his wife called to tell him that she was leaving him, and that he believed she was with someone else--a statement her family disputes. She is Peterson's fourth wife.

Gutierrez would not discuss what investigators took from the Peterson home late Tuesday night when they executed a second search warrant at that location in less than a week. He said police were inside the residence for about 90 minutes and no one was home at the time.

Hello Everyone:

Let's look at the facts as we know them about how DP 3rd wife's body was found.  DP brought back the children after visitation.  He took the kids to the door, door was locked, he knocked, no answer.  He went to a neighbor's house and asked to use the phone to call a locksmith?  What is WRONG with that?  Why would he call a locksmith?  Maybe try a phone call, leave a note saying you weren't home, I took the kids back with me?  And why would a locksmith let him in?  He didn't  live there! Then he sends the neighbor in to discover her body in the bath tub? Is it me or is this establishing an alibi/timeline?  This just stinks to high heaven!  And finally why did it take SP disappearance for all of this to come to light?  Maybe it's not "what you know" but "who you know".

I agree 100%.  This guy stinks and he's been allowed to manipulate the system.

I'd really like to know more about wife #1.  Rumor is that she is also dead of "natural" causes.  If that is the case, the only wife that has survived is the one he had NO KIDS with.

Search for Peterson widens with boats, horses, ATVs


Bolingbrook, IL -
Dozens of volunteers fanned out throughout the Bolingbrook and Romeoville area by 10 a.m. Wednesday, targeting a handful of sites organizers hope will lead them to Stacy Peterson, the 23-year old mother of two who was reported missing Oct. 29.

Teams of searchers prepared to work on foot, horseback and in boats looking for clues into Peterson’s disappearance.

Texas EquuSearch is coordinating the volunteer effort while state police are in charge of an investigation into the disappearance of Peterson, who is married to Sgt. Drew Peterson, 53, a 29-year veteran of the Bolingbrook Police Department.

The state police and Texas EquuSearch are not working together.

Texas EquuSearch began searching for clues into Peterson’s disappearance on Monday afternoon, and by Tuesday morning teams of searchers were heading to several target sites, including Veterans Woods in Romeoville and a Plainfield-based private fishing and hunting club near 135th Street and Essington Road.

“We spent a few hours at the private club yesterday before our motor went out, but it is too good a site to pass up because there are so many little secluded slivers of water inlets, so I’ll spend as much time as I can there today,” said Dennis Watters, a professional fisherman from Moro, Ill., who made the trip to Bolingbrook Monday.

Watters said his sophisticated sonar can detect shapes up to depths of 80 feet.
“If someone made a mistake and put Stacy’s body underwater, I’ll find her, even if she is submerged in algae or mud,” Watters said.

Watters did not identify the private club in Plainfield, but said an official of the club told EquuSearch team members Drew Peterson had made inquiries into using the club “to go shooting,” Watters said.

Watters did not say how recent Peterson’s inquiries were, and club officials could not be reached for comment.

Stacy Peterson's husband visits courts complex
Drew Peterson's lawyers: 'Nothing to say'

November 7, 2007
BY DAN ROZEK, JOE HOSEY AND STEFANO ESPOSITO

The police sergeant husband of missing Bolingbrook mother Stacy Peterson visited the Will County courthouse complex in Joliet for about two hours this afternoon.

A grand jury is meeting in the building he entered, which also houses the Will County State's Attorney's offices.

(Rich Hein/Sun-Times)

But neither Sgt. Drew Peterson nor the two lawyers who accompanied him would say what they were doing there.

"This is an on-going investigation," said attorney Fred Morelli. "We have nothing to say."

Drew Peterson -- clean shaven and dressed in a dark suit and tie -- would not respond to repeated questions from reporters. Moments later -- about 3:30 p.m. -- the sergeant and his lawyers left the courthouse complex in a gray Volkswagen.

State police investigators have said Drew Peterson is not considered a suspect in the disappearance of his wife, who was last heard from by family Oct. 28.

Drew Peterson's ex-wife, Kathleen Savio, drowned in her bathtub in 2004. In light of Stacy Peterson's disappearance, Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow has said they are reviewing the circumstances of her death.

In a late development Tuesday night, Illinois State Police investigators executed a search warrant at the home Stacy Peterson shared with her husband. Authorities offered no details on what they were seeking.

Earlier Tuesday, a smaller-than-expected group of 50 volunteers searched grassy areas along the Des Plaines River near Romeoville and a section of Veterans Woods Forest Preserve, but found no sign of the 23-year-old Stacy Peterson.

The poor weather conditions were blamed for keeping volunteers away and for preventing the all-volunteer Texas EquuSearch Mounted Search and Recovery Team from using its search dogs and an aerial drone.

"We will continue until we find Stacy," said Pam Bosco, a family spokeswoman. "I do believe in the end we will have answers.'"

The search continued today.

Police apparently returned to Peterson's Bolingbrook home late Tuesday afternoon. Two investigators walked around the home's fenced backyard, but didn't enter the home, neighbors said.

Stacy Peterson was last seen Oct. 28 at the home, where she resides with Drew Peterson, their two young children and Drew Peterson's two sons from a previous marriage. Drew Peterson has said he believes his wife left voluntarily, possibly because she had become involved with another man.

Her relatives, though, have disputed that claim, saying she wouldn't leave her children. She had told them in recent days that she feared her husband and planned to divorce him.

Will County authorities expect to soon question her two stepchildren - ages 12 and 15 - to see if they can offer any information that will help solve her disappearance.

"We have plans to do that in the very near future," said Charles Pelkie, a spokesman for Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow. "We want to find out what the kids know about [her] disappearance.''

Family Of Bolingbrook Cop's Deceased Wife Speaks
Sister Of Drew Peterson's Late Third Wife Says She Thinks He Harmed Her


 Reporting
Mike Puccinelli JOLIET, Ill. (CBS) ― The search continues for missing Bolingbrook mother Stacy Peterson. Meanwhile, after not being seen for days, her husband, Drew Peterson, made an appearance in Joliet.

CBS 2 news partner the Naperville Sun saw Drew Peterson leaving the courthouse annex at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. It was rumored that he would be there for grand jury proceedings but officials would not confirm that.

CBS 2 West Suburban Bureau Chief Mike Puccinelli made a trip to the coroner's office on the fourth floor of that building where Drew Peterson was spotted. An official asked that he leave. When asked if the building was a public building, the official responded, "Not today." That, as prosecutors discussed whether to exhume the body of Drew Peterson's third wife.

Three and a half years after Kathleen Savio was found dead in a bathtub, her sister is speaking out for the first time for her desire to see her youngest sister exhumed from her eternal resting place.

When asked if she would support the exhuming of her sister, Anna Doman said, "Yes, if that's what it takes. In a minute."

That's because Anna Doman says Kathleen always believed that her husband, Drew Peterson, would hurt her.

"She told me she'd never make it to the end of the divorce. She'd never make the property settlement," Anna Doman said. "That's a shame."

Anna Doman said Kathleen Savio told her she knew she would be killed. And although she's never said publicly that she believed Drew Peterson killed Kathleen, she's not holding back anymore.

When asked if she thinks Drew Peterson killed Kathleen Savio, Anna Doman said, "It's hard to say… yeah, I do. …He had the most to gain – money."

She says there was $1 million in life insurance and a more than $600,000 estate that stood to be divided.

"She would have gotten half. Instead she got none," Anna Doman said. "He got it all."

When Kathleen Savio died, Melissa Doman lost her favorite aunt. But she thinks of the woman she called Kitty every time she looks at her daughter.

"When I had my daughter, I named her after my aunt, so that no matter what I'll never forget," Melissa Doman said.

Savio's family will never forget a loving mother and sister, who is always in their hearts, a woman whose story they are telling now because she no longer can.

"How in the world could anyone say it was an accident?" Anna Doman said. "The cut was on the back of her head, and she was on her face in a waterless bathtub. Give me a break."

CBS 2 tried to reach Drew Peterson Wednesday but he did not return calls. Anna Doman says she has not spoken to authorities since Stacy Peterson went missing, but says she is now ready to.

Posted on CTV from the podcast at Gretablog:

Greta's latest podcast is up .... lots of new stuff.

The family & Tim Miller are meeting with the PD because the family wants the FBI brought in.

DP has full living quarters in the basement of his house, not able to be seen from the outside, and they believe he has been in there the whole time.

Ric is the one that flew up with Tim today, checking out a spot that DP & SP frequented, a remote location where they rode motorcycles.

The attorneys at the house today were criminal attorneys. The grand jury is investigating the combined cases of SP & Katherine as they are intermingled.

Yes but if you saw him on Greta last night, he was acting very strange, like he was starting to think some bad had happened to Stacy and Drew might be resposible.  Also, he went up in a plane with Tim Miller today to show an area they Drew would go to.  Maybe he's trying to throw the investigation off, or maybe he's changed his mind about his buddy Drew.

Court filings tell story

November 6, 2007
By STEWART WARREN STAFF WRITER
JOLIET -- Although we don't know much about Stacy Peterson's disappearance, we know other things.

They are found in files at the Will County Courthouse.

Knit together, these facts tell something about Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson, the missing woman's much-older husband. For example, while married to another woman, Drew Peterson, 53, owned several businesses and life insurance policies -- and that third wife later was found drowned in a bathtub without any water.

Fourth wife Stacy Peterson, a 23-year-old mother of two, hasn't been seen since Oct. 28. The young woman was supposed to help family members paint a house, but never showed. Drew Peterson claims his wife simply deserted him, but a family member reported her missing.


Savio's death

In early 2002, Drew Peterson and Kathleen Savio, the third wife, began divorce proceedings, according to court documents. They had been married about 10 years and had two children. In late 2003, Will County Judge Susan O'Leary dissolved their marriage. Their divorce was "bifurcated," in this case meaning they were allowed to divorce before their common property was divided, according to court documents.
Then in March 2004, a neighbor found Savio dead in the dry bathtub at her Bolingbrook home. It was an accident, Will County Coroner Patrick K. O'Neil ruled. The 40-year-old woman suffered blunt trauma and a lacerated scalp, injuries consistent with a fall that could have knocked her unconscious, according to the inquest. By that time, Drew Peterson already was involved with the then-Stacy Cales, who was 17 when they met.

After Savio died, there was a Will County probate case to settle her financial affairs. Well-known local lawyer Dick Kavanagh was the public administrator of Will County, a governor-appointed position. Simply put, the public administrator tries to find the fairest way to settle an estate after a death, among other things.


A will emerges

A year after Savio's death and the beginning of the legal proceedings to settle her affairs, a will emerged. It was submitted in court on March 23, 2005. Hand-written in capital letters, it was scrawled across two pieces of lined notebook paper and witnessed by Alex J. Morelli and Gary L. Marcolina.
A man named Alex Morelli is a Bolingbrook police officer, and Herald News archives show a man named Gary Marcolina is a developer in the Crest Hill area.


"This day March 2nd 1997 Drew Walter Peterson and Kathleen Savio Peterson, both being of sound body and mind, do hereby bequeath all of our worldly possessions to each other in the event of either of our individual deaths," begins the will filed with court documents.

If they died together, the couple wanted everything to go to certain people, among them Tom and Kris Peterson, their children, and Eric Drew Peterson and Stephen Paul Peterson, Drew Peterson's children from another relationship.

The will lists some of their assets:


• A Golden Rule life insurance policy valued at $100,000


• A Monumental Life Insurance policy valued at $125,000


• A Prudential Life Insurance policy valued at $308,137.59 -- "Beneficiary Merchants Bank Oswego to pay off note for Sud's Pub in Montgomery," according to the will.


• Bolingbrook Police Pension fund of more than $50,000


• A piece of real estate listed as 9 Clay Court, Montgomery


• The Blue Lightning Corp., or Sud's Pub, 1250 S. Broadway, Montgomery


• Da Page Corp., Fast 'N' Accurate Graphics, 87 Eisenhower South, Lombard


• A quarter interest in CMYK Corp., listed as a printing business in "Lombard-Naperville," according to the will.


Division of property issues

The will names James B. Carroll, Drew Peterson's uncle, executor of the estate, according to a document filed in court by Kavanagh, who apparently had some concerns.
"After my appointment as administrator, I conferred with attorney Harry Smith with respect to the status of the property settlement portion of the divorce proceeding ... (He) advised me that there were three major issues with respect to the division of property ... 1. Whether Kathleen's estate would be entitled to any portion of Drew Peterson's pension; 2. The valuation of the business known as the Blue Lightning Corp., which has been sold with all of the proceeds going to Drew Peterson; and 3. The value of the house, and whether Kathleen Peterson's estate would be entitled to receive not only her one-half of the proceeds of any sale, but an additional portion of the remaining one-half as an offset for the cash taken by Drew Peterson from the sale of the (bar)," Kavanaugh wrote in court documents.

On April 8, 2005, Will County Judge Michael Powers entered a judgment in the financial aspects of the divorce case. It awarded Drew Peterson the Blue Lightning Corp. and all the proceeds from the sale of the couple's home, according to the court documents filed by Kavanagh. The judgment also mentions what seems to be a fourth life insurance policy.

"(It) provided that Drew Peterson would not be obligated to fund any college expenses for the minor children of the parties due to the fact that life insurance on the life of Kathleen in the amount of $1 million had been payable to the children," according to the document.

As part of the judgment, Carroll agreed that some money from Savio's estate should go to someone other than the four children. "The effect of the judgment was to transfer anywhere from $144,117.65 to $288,235.31 (one-half to all of the proceeds of the home sale) from the four children who were the beneficiaries of the estate ... to Drew Peterson," according to court documents.

Kavanagh didn't approve of that move, apparently.

"The actions of (Carroll) were not in the best interest of the estate or the beneficiaries," he wrote in a court document.

Tim Miller is so non-threatening I think he can work on that Mims guy.  Besides, if his buddy Peterson has nothing to hide, Mims should not have to lie or throw off the investigation, should he?

Unless he is involved in it in some manner himself like after the fact accessory.  But I did get the feeling last night he is afraid of Peterson just like everybody else seems to be.  Must be something about that man.

Klaas,
You are right, the only one that survived is the one who would not stand to receive any money long term.  Maybe they should also be looking at the first wife as well.

You'd think getting away with something would make these kinds of people want to lie low for a bit but it just seems to encourage a sociopath.  They then are convinced they are smarter than everybody else and can commit the perfect crime any time they want to.

There are few times I have much to offer in cases.  However, in this case, I do know a few things about this particular area.

As a bit of background, it is cold in this area, and getting colder.  For some that never experience winter, winter has arrived.  In the past, bodies left in fields, or other places around this time remain undiscovered until warm spring days.

Cold like when you open your freezer door and smell the dry cold air.

Bolingbrook is a community surrounded by acres of forest preserve, wetlands, some rural, and located near the interstate.  The area they are searching has creeks, lots of retention ponds, quaries, and other interesting places that one could hide a body.  Keep in mind that a body will decay very slowly in the cold, and freezing weather.  Little or no odor.

There are miles of trails, forrested areas, parks, lots of construction too.  I was talking to someone earlier and they pointed out a few other possibilities.  Lots of golf courses, recycling centers with piles of wood chips, and compost, and the interstate that goes on to Iowa.  Just a quick trip and you're miles away in the country.  Lots of roads being widened and moved to make room for more subdivisions.  No traffic, just piles of dirt.  Some construction has stopped for the winter.  

There is also a fishery in the area.

Is Stacy's family still around?  Mother?

A lot of people are found in this area because it is high traffic interstate, close to Chicago and to rural areas.  They may remain undiscovered for long periods of time.

There was a boy found after Natalee disappeared in 2005 and he was never identifed.

Here is a youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jawz1JcGENw

He was found west of Bolingbrook.  

With regard to rumors, is Stacy's mother still alive?  My friend who reads elsewhere said there is rumor that she disappeared as well.

Whiskeygirl is right about the winters in Dupage county and its gonna make the search efforts that much tougher if she is not found soon :(

Stacy's mother disappeared when Stacy was 15.  Stacy's mother had run off in the past, a couple days here...couple days there but had always returned.  When she disappeared she seemed to have gotten her life back together and it was strange for her to disappear completely.  The family has not heard from her in 9 years.  They looked for her, and found nothing.

I have friends in the area and this is a hot topic.  I've walked my dogs in those forest preserves, years ago (remaining dog is to old now). 

Here is one big area that allows access, would probably not be real busy this time of year - they also have a map - this is just a few miles north of where they are looking...

http://www.mortonarb.org

With the cold and all the building, construction sites, etc., someone could hide a body for a short time, and return later to move it. 

Other big place in the area...Fermilab

OK - on Greta tonight it was mentioned that Kathleen's big wedding ring was missing (prior to her death) and that Kathleen thought that Drew had taken it.

It was also mentioned that Drew had given Stacy a very large ring about a week or so before she disappeared.

TONIGHT - Greta mentioned on her podcast that Stacy's family was asked to go to Interstate Police headquarters.  Wonder if they found THAT ring in Drews house?  Wonder if it's the SAME ring that Drew had given Kathleen?  Could Stacy's family been asked to come down and identify the ring?

WhiskeyGirl,

How cold does it get there at night now?  Would it get below freezing already?  It won't snow soon, will it?  That could really cover things up.

They better hurry!

Yes, Kathleen seemed to think DP coming into the house and helping himself to things especially kept in locked box.  If he still had access to the house when he should not have, that is the opportunity part of a crime.

Is this correct?

Wife no1:What does she think?
Wife no2: Still extremely fearful of her X husband
Wife no3: Died suspiciously in the bathtub after seperating from him
Wife no4: Missing

******* - nobody knows anything about wife #1.  Rumor was that she died (natural death) but then someone else has said that's not true.  I don't think she's dead.  I wish Greta or someone would find out about her.

I'm thinking she doesn't want to be found, especially considering recent events.

Bolingbrook is considered part of the western Chicago suburbs.  According to the Chicago Tribune its 39 degrees right now.  Close to freezing.  I know there has been some isolated sleet (freezing rain) this past week.

Winter coat and furnace time.

Ha, ha!  It's only 32 in Huntsville, AL right now with:

...HUNTSVILLE... DECATUR... GUNTERSVILLE...SCOTTSBORO... FORT PAYNE...CULLMAN...LYNCHBURG... FAYETTEVILLE...WINCHESTER 324 PM CST WED NOV 7 2007
...FREEZE WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO 8 AM CST THURSDAY...

FREEZING TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED AGAIN TONIGHT AS A HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM DRIFTS INTO THE CENTRAL TENNESSEE VALLEY. LIGHT WINDS AND CLEAR SKIES FOR A MAJORITY OF THE NIGHT WILL CAUSE TEMPERATURES TO DROP BELOW FREEZING. LOCATIONS THAT DID NOT EXPERIENCE SUBFREEZING CONDITIONS WEDNESDAY MORNING ARE LIKELY TO DROP BELOW FREEZING TONIGHT. FOR MOST LOCATIONS...A SECOND HARD FREEZE IS EXPECTED.

A FREEZE WARNING IS ISSUED WHEN FREEZING TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST TO THREATEN OUTDOOR PLANTS. THOSE WITH AGRICULTURAL INTERESTS IN THE WARNED AREA ARE ADVISED TO HARVEST OR PROTECT TENDER VEGETATION NOT IMPACTED BY FREEZING CONDITIONS WEDNESDAY MORNING. ALSO...POTTED PLANTS NORMALLY LEFT OUTDOORS SHOULD CONTINUE TO BE COVERED OR KEPT INSIDE AWAY FROM THE COLD.



But this is very unusual this time of year and will warm back up after tomorrow.

I hope.

It is cold and will stay that way for several months.  Likely the car windows (if outside) will be covered in frost.

It would be hell to be out in the open as it has been windy.  I can usually tolerate the cold, just turned the furnace on Sunday.  However, I had to get out the heavy duty winter coat yesterday.  Fall is just a memory...

It doesn't take much to freeze small ponds, lakes, retention ponds, and waterways.  If a pond is aerated they don't freeze over as quickly.  Even lake Michigan will freeze around the edges.  A lot of people go ice fishing and the small lakes (and other water bodies) stay frozen (a frozen crust you can walk on) until about mid to late March.

The earth will freeze a few feet deep and no one will be digging any holes in the ground.  Pipes freeze and burst inside walls, and under the streets.    

I keep thinking of all the construction.  Much of the construction stops due to the cold and won't start up until spring.  Golfers are out until there is some snow that sticks around.  Golfers are a hardy lot up North and a little cold doesn't scare them off.

 I was just over reading the Bolingbrook message boards on Topix
http://www.topix.com/forum/city/bolingbrook-il

and read a few interesting things:

One poster speculates that DP will never accept the prospect of prison and will either "go on the lamb" or "eat lead."

SP's friends are planning on going to search near the Royce Road quarry area tomorrow (the same area we talked about today)

Many close to the family are hinting that some things will be coming out that will be quite surprising -- much like Greta's tease.

Good BPD officers are upset that DP is giving the entire department a "black eye" and would like to see him brought to justice according to one poster.

One poster is speculation that the reason the family was called to the ISP was to discuss using TES resources to look for Lisa Stebic as well while they are here.

STEBIC CHILDREN TESTIFY BEFORE GRAND JURY
Craig Stebic Not Allowed In Grand Jury Room

POSTED: 10:09 pm CST November 7, 2007
UPDATED: 10:45 pm CST November 7, 2007


CHICAGO -- Sources said Wednesday the children of a missing Plainfield woman spoke to a grand jury. NBC5's Anna Davlantes reported that authorities have wanted to talk with the children of Lisa Stebic for months, but their father, Craig, had refused to allow the children to speak to anyone about the case. Lisa Stebic disappeared six months ago

Sources said Stebic and his children came to the Will County Courthouse, where a grand jury had been seated. It was the first time the Stebic children have spoken to anyone investigating the case.

Craig Stebic has been named a "person of interest in the case," and has refused to let his children talk to authorities.

It gets very cold even this far south but for a couple of days then it always warms back up, like to sixties in day time so nothing ever freezes hard like ponds.  Our water pipes freeze and burst because they are too shallow, just inches under dirt and not wrapped, etc.

Extreme cold would make it much harder to use the dogs searching, too.  Wind also.  The searchers look all bundled up so if this weekend is nice weather, and they have a big turn out on Saturday when some are off from work, maybe that will be all the time they need.

If this man is as he is being portrayed, he has thought this out beforehand, however, and had a place in mind.

The sister of the third wife was saying how he cleaned the bath tub after police were there and gathered up a basket of laundry and took away with him.  Had the neighbors go in to actually find her body even.

He appears to know just how to work the system perfectly and distance himself just enough from the actual event.

I didn't know a parent could prevent children from speaking with authorities.  That is very troubling and doesn't seem right to me.

Those TES guys are tough.  They get the extreme heat and cold both in Texas and they can take lots more than we can I suspect.  Cowboys and all that but the average person showing up to help might not be.  I know they stay warmer walking and moving about, too.

Lots of hot coffee for them would be nice.  I wonder if anyone has contacted local restaurants or if they are afraid to donate or what?

Coroner: Sergeant’s 3rd wife’s death should have been ’undetermined’
Posted 11/7/2007, 11:24PM, by Gary Bishir
BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (AP) — The 2004 death of a Bolingbrook police sergeant’s third wife should have been ruled “undetermined,” the Will County coroner said Wednesday.
No charges were filed after Drew Peterson’s former wife Kathleen Savio, 40, drowned in a bathtub in March 2004 and a coroner’s jury ruled the death accidental. Peterson’s fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, has been missing for 11 days, prompting authorities to review Savio’s death.


“Certain aspects of Kathleen Savio’s death raised concerns for me as well. In my professional opinion … at the very least, her death should have been ruled ’undetermined,”’ Coroner Patrick O’Neil said in a statement. “The coroner’s jury unfortunately ruled otherwise.”
At the 2004 inquest, the coroner said Savio drowned, even though there was no water in the bathtub when she was found. Investigators have theorized that the water must have drained out of the tub.

Savio had obtained an order of protection in 2002, alleging a pattern of physical abuse and threats, according to court records. Drew Peterson has denied having anything to do with his ex-wife’s death.

On Wednesday, searchers organized by the private group Texas EquuSearch combed areas looking for 23-year-old Stacy Peterson, who was reported missing Oct. 29. Illinois State Police say her disappearance is being investigated as a missing persons case.

Drew Peterson visited the Will County courthouse complex in Joliet for about two hours on Wednesday. The building houses the Will County state’s attorney’s offices, along with grand juries and other court services.

“This is an ongoing investigation,” Peterson attorney Fred Morelli told the Chicago Sun-Times. “We have nothing to say.”

Drew Peterson, 53, a sergeant in the Bolingbrook Police Department, has said his wife phoned him and told him she had left voluntarily for another man. But Stacy Peterson’s family has said she feared her husband, was making plans to divorce him and would not have willingly left her children.

That general area is full of hotels, meeting rooms, restaurants - fast food and otherwise.  I wonder if TES has a contact person in the area?

The area borders DuPage County (someone mentioned this county earlier) and DuPage is well developed.  I remember those areas being very generous with regard to donations, it was always a matter of finding someone to ask and pick up the donated items.

Bolingbrook just got a major development that includes a Macy's, Bass Pro Shop, Panera, and many of the other big box retailers.  There seems to be a McDonald's every 5 minutes down the road.  The older parts of Bolingbrook are smaller and working class.  The newer parts have million dollar homes and golf courses.  Bolingbrook is a nice mix of people, and the community has done a lot to make themselves family friendly. 

If someone were going to hide or dispose of a body, that would be the area to do it in.  There are so many possibilities.  If someone has lived in the area, they know where the isolated parts of the communities are.

Dumpsters - shopping malls, stores, apartment/condo complexes, construction site, restaurants, public parks, forest preserves, etc.  Garbage pickup is probably more than once a week, and automated. 

Someone posted information about a business in 'Lombard' - a community a few miles away.  I've been to that business park and a few around it.  Older, no view from the street, secluded in the midst of development.  I think it would have been easy to put something in a dumpster, no one would see you.  Deserted.  Garbage pickup has already happened a few times since she disappeared.

That area also has a lot of animal and people organizations.  I wonder if anyone has contacted them on behalf of searchers?

THURSDAY - How Crazy Can This Business Get? (Don’t Answer…)
by Greta Van Susteren

It is Thursday morning and I am in NYC — but I expect to head back to DC late morning unless OTR Steph Watts call me from Illinois to divert there.  We have been working on an interview there and I have been on standby for days….ready to go.  I figure the chances are great today for the simple reason I don’t have any clothes packed with me here in NYC and these things always happen at the worst times.

Incidentally, to answer the question, “how crazy can this business get?” - I need to give you some behind the scenes from yesterday.  Early yesterday morning I got acall (which turned out to be FALSE FALSE FALSE information) that Sgt. Drew Peterson’s first wife had coinicidentally died the night before of natural causes.   Steph and Cory (OTR Producer Cory Howard) began that investigation (meanwhile they had a ton of other things to do in Illinois.)  Their investigation was hampered by the fact that wife # 1 lives (yes, LIVES) in another state.  As the day passed, a SECOND person said the wife #1 died the night before.   Now we had two sources, but it just did not seem right (so we did not, of course, report it) and we were also fearful that our 2 sources were really one source — that they had both learned the information (false) from the same person.

Well….it was not until about 7pm that we confirmed that wife #1 is ALIVE AND WELL (and that it was just a crazy - and lousy - rumor floating around Bolingbrook, Illinois.)

This is not the only rumor that we have had to chase down…and yes, in virtually every story we get rumors that we chase down that turn out to be false (sometimes true…)  It makes us crazy to have to do it - especially since we have so much else to do on the stories during the day.  But what is our choice, not chase down them?   So…that’s the inside story…and you have to figure that for all we do know and tell you on the air, there is lots we have done behind the scenes that turns out to be zero and just wasted energy

QUESTIONS FOR HUSBAND | Drew Peterson called before grand jury as hunt for wife goes on


(http://media1.suntimes.com/multimedia/peterson.jpg_20071108_08_37_24_20-116-165.imageContent)

November 8, 2007
BY DAN ROZEK, STEFANO ESPOSITO AND KARA SPAK Staff Reporters
Eleven days after Stacy Peterson vanished, her police officer husband was called to testify Wednesday before a Will County grand jury.

Hours later, Coroner Patrick O'Neil said the 2004 death of Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson's previous wife should not have been ruled accidental.

"Certain aspects of Kathleen Savio's death raised concerns for me, as well," O'Neil said in a statement released Wednesday night. "...It was my opinion that, at the very least, her death should have been ruled 'undetermined.' The [six-member] coroner's jury, unfortunately, ruled otherwise."

Accompanied by two lawyers, Drew Peterson spent about two hours Wednesday afternoon inside a Will County office building in downtown Joliet, then left hurriedly about 3:30 p.m.

Peterson, 53, who was clean-shaven and dressed in a dark suit and tie, didn't respond to questions from reporters as he hustled out of the building with one attorney, then jumped into a waiting car driven by another lawyer.

Lawyer: '... nothing to say'
"This is an ongoing investigation," attorney Fred Morelli said as he left the building with Peterson. "We have nothing to say."

Through a spokesman, Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow declined to comment on whether Peterson was called before the grand jury or why he was in the building across the street from the Will County Courthouse. It holds several courtrooms and a number of county offices, including Glasgow's office.

But sources confirmed that Peterson was called before a grand jury, which hears testimony from witnesses and has the power to return indictments against criminal suspects.

Stacy Peterson's sister, Cassandra Cales, said family members were told that Drew Peterson had been called before a grand jury but otherwise had little information.

Cales said Wednesday that relatives weren't told if the grand jury was specifically looking at the Oct. 28 disappearance of Stacy Peterson or if it was considering the death of Savio, Drew Peterson's third wife.

Savio was found dead in a bathtub in her Bolingbrook home after her divorce from Drew Peterson. The 2004 death was ruled accidental, but since Stacy Peterson's disappearance, Will County authorities have said they are reviewing the case. Cales said she's not upset if the grand jury is focusing on Savio's death. "I don't mind people looking into that," Cales said.

"We just know he was called in," added Pam Bosco, a spokeswoman for Stacy Peterson's family. "We just hope it was for Stacy's case."

Illinois State Police investigating the disappearance of 23-year-old Stacy Peterson have repeatedly said that her husband is not a suspect and declined to say whether they think she was a victim of foul play.

"We're still focused on finding Stacy," said Trooper Mark Dorencz, a State Police spokesman. "This is a missing persons case."

Drew Peterson has said in interviews that he thinks his wife of four years left him voluntarily -- perhaps for another man.

Relatives have disputed that claim, saying the mother of two young children would never disappear for days without contacting someone. Bosco described Stacy as someone "who was always in contact with her family."

100 volunteers on the lookout
Cales and other family members met for about an hour with State Police on Wednesday, but Cales declined to offer details about the meeting.

The meeting and grand jury appearance took place as nearly 100 volunteers continued looking across the region for Stacy Peterson.

Volunteers on horseback scoured vacant land along the Des Plaines River near Romeoville, while other searchers used sonar equipment to check ponds in Plainfield, and an airplane fitted with a high-resolution camera scouted for signs of the missing woman.

Coroner on ex-wife's death: It wasn't an accident
Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2007 statement from Will County Coroner Patrick O'Neil regarding the 2004 inquest into the death of Kathleen Savio, third wife of Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson:

"My legal obligation as the coroner is to preside over inquests and to present testimony and evidence on all unnatural deaths to a coroner's jury in a neutral fashion. This is exactly what I did while presiding over the inquest in the death of Kathleen Savio.

"The six-member coroner's jury heard testimony from police and reviewed toxicology, autopsy and police reports involving the investigation into Kathleen Savio's death. In addition, the coroner's jury heard concerns voiced by Kathleen Savio's family members that they believed certain aspects of her death were suspicious.

"After hearing all the evidence, the coroner's jury convened in private and ruled that the manner of Kathleen Savio's death was an accident. The cause was listed as drowning.

"Certain aspects of Kathleen Savio's death raised concerns for me, as well. In my professional opinion, having served at the time as the coroner for 14 years, it was my opinion that, at the very least, her death should have been ruled 'undetermined.' The coroner's jury, unfortunately, ruled otherwise.

"At the time, I had every confidence the police agency that investigated her death would present its reports to the state's attorney's office for review. Sgt. Pat Collins of the Illinois State Police obtained the assistance of State's Attorney's [Jeff] Tomczak's office on March 3, 2004 in his investigation. Any criminal charges that might have resulted against any individual would have been the responsibility of the former state's attorney

"It must be noted that a state's attorney's office may file criminal charges in a case regardless of a ruling by a coroner's jury that a death is accidental of the investigation warrants such charges.

"Finally, a change in state law that took effect in January 2007 gave Illinois coroners the option of bypassing the jury process and ruling on the manner of death independently, based upon their professional review of the evidence in a death investigation. This option has enabled coroners to remove a great deal of uncertainty from the process. Had this option been available in 2004, the ruling in this case would have been different."

Well, I just hope like most control freaks DP is afraid to let any remains out of his control and has done something foolish to keep control of them, IF he is guilty of wrong doing in this instance.

Jennifer, these heat pumps just don't work well when it is this cold, at least I have never had one that did.  Mine ran all night and it was still chilly.  This could have been agricultural disaster but the drought had already killed everything here anyway.

Hang on!  Gradual warming trend is on the way.

This Press Release is - in my view - SHOCKING
by Greta Van Susteren

This is very, very interesting….as you know, we have been looking into the death of Sgt. Peterson’s wife #3 in the bathtub. It was ruled an accident in 2004- see below.  Was it? and Worse, why was it? We got the autopsy to double check it since we wanted to be thorough in covering this story. What we read stunned us. We read in her autopsy report that her hair was full of blood and that she had bruises. It certainly looked suspicious to me…but what do I know? I went to law school…not medical school! So we showed it to an expert - Dr. Baden - and Dr. Baden said her death is a homicide. I asked him if it were a “close” question and he said no. Then we continued to probe and probe and probe…our producers went to the coroner’s office and we talked to the police and called the prosecutor’s office. The coroner himself is now speaking out — but I am more scandalized than before. Yes, it is a coroner’s jury that decides…but if you read his release (see the red below), he was likewise suspicious and what did he do???? ZERO …or close to ZERO…read below and then POST YOUR COMMENT: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS????

I don't think I have ever heard of this coroner's jury aspect.  Here, I think, the coroner just rules.  And as Dr Baden was saying recently the coroner is elected and is not necessarily trained to do this.  Most often it is a local mortician!  No one much seems to want the job, either.  I don't think this county pays much for it at all.

I think it should be required to be an MD or at least someone trained in medicine in some way as to recognize what they are looking at.

Stacy Peterson Search Continues; Email Indicates Trouble
Posted by Holliston at 11/8/2007 12:12 PM and is filed under Missing,Stacy Peterson 


Stacy Peterson has been missing now since October 28 leaving behind 4 children and a husband.  Her family doesn't believe for a second her disappearance is voluntary as her husband Drew has maintained.  In fact, much like the Brandi Laurent case, nothing adds up.  Texas Equusearch is coordinating the search efforts in the Chicago suburb of Bolingbrook, Illinois along with a group of volunteers.  Among the searchers is Cassandra Cales, Stacy's sister.  Drew claimed the last time he saw Stacy was when she headed over to her sister's to help paint.  I'll have more from Cassandra later today.  Another searcher is Steve Cesare, a good friend of Stacy.  He received an email from her a week and a half before she disappeared indicating a troubled marriage.  Steve sent me that email today.

hello.   i did have the boys over last weekend, but i also had aunt cany and my cousin and grandpa as well as all of my kids.  we had a birthday party and all sorts of stuff so it was crazy.  i didnt want to exclude you at all but was more so hopeing that i could have them again soo and it would be more intimate.  the kids were all over!   dont worry i wont forget you.  im sure you understand.  i was also thinking that my aunt candys time w/them is so extremely limited that i didnt want to take any away from her. 
as far as me staying out of trouble.....not really.  i have been arguing quite a bit w/my husband.  as i mature some w/age i am finding that the relationship i am in is controlling, manipulative and some what abusive.  as i try to help make changes to this he has become argumentative.  tomarrow is our 4 year aniversary and i am not as excited as the years that have past.  i dunno?!?!?!?!   we'll see whats to happen i guess.   if you could keep me in your prayers i could use some wisdom, protection, and strength.
thanks alot

More on this story soon.

Stacy Peterson would not be the first policeman's wife to fall victim to the "thin blue line".  I would not be surprised to hear that Drew's coworkers knew he was an abuser and a cheater.

Poor Stacy didn't learn anything from being the "other woman".  He cheated on his then wife and probably cheated on Stacy as well.  He apparently abused them both . 

And his kids are scared of him.  Nice.  Real father of the year type of guy.

I predict DP will eat his gun before this is all over.

JMHO

Subject: From Urgent….

Just spoke with Chuck Pelkie, PIO for Will County States Attorney office - to find out the latest regarding the review of Kathleen Savio’s (Drew Peterson’s 3rd wife) death.

“We are talking seriously about taking steps to exhume her (Savio’s) body… decision will be made in very near future… (wont say when, States attorney office needs to talk to Savio’s family first)

“States Attonrey office still reviewing what legal steps need to be taken before exhuming the (Savio’s) body”

“there were red flags upon initial review of Kathleen Savio case…. her death continues to be under review. “

“Illinois State Police investigated (Savio’s death in 2004) and sought advice from the Will County States Atty office within days of her death”

“the Will County coroner’s ruling (on Savio’s death in 2004) did not preclude the Will County States Atty office from following up on the case. “


FYI -
** Former Will County States Atty, Jeff Tomczak, was in office from 2000 - 2004, and reviewed the case in 2004 when Kathleen Savio died. Tomczak ran for re-election in Nov. 2004 and lost to current Will County States Attorney James Glasgow. Tomczak’s father, Donald, also a politician, was charged in 2004 with soliciting bribes in the city of Chicago’s Hired Truck scandal.

Volunteers are making progress
Tim with TES told the reporter that a lot of leads are coming in and there have been a lot of developments. "I'm very optimistic that this case will be coming to a close shortly, not going to say today or tomorrow, but I think there are some things that are happening. I think we just need that little tiny bit of luck to go along with all these efforts and I think this is going to come to a close."

(Tim usually chooses his words very carefully, so if he's optimistic, I think that's really saying something!)

Volunteers continue search for Peterson
By Matthew Walberg and Erika Slife

Tribune staff reporters

1:33 PM CST, November 8, 2007

 About 60 volunteers resumed the search Thursday for Stacy Peterson, the Bolingbrook mother who was last seen Oct. 28 by her husband, Sgt. Drew Peterson.

Spearheaded by the rescue organization Texas EquuSearch, the volunteers were dispatched to areas throughout Will County on horseback, on foot and by boat.

Rebecca Marinellie, 18, of Lockport, showed up to the makeshift command center at Westbrook Christian Church on Lily Cache Lane on Thursday shivering in jeans and a light sweatshirt. Marinellie said she met Peterson, 23, through nursing classes at Joliet Junior College and wanted to help.

"I know Stacy from my class. She struck me as the nicest person in the world," she said. "I was talking about a problem with a classmate one day, and she jumped in to help me, and she didn't even know me."

Roy Taylor, whose mother lives next door to the Petersons and who is helping orchestrate the search, said organizers Thursday were most worried about feeding their volunteers. All week, local businesses have been donating lunch, or volunteers have picked up the tab.

"We need food," he said. "We'll have all these volunteers come back for lunch, and we'll have nothing to feed them. Yesterday, we were able to hook it up. Today, it's not looking good."

Meanwhile, boaters used sonar equipment to search the Elmhurst Chicago Stone Quarry in Plainfield.

Taylor said the volunteers spent two days combing the marshes, but now were planning to move into deeper areas in the water-filled quarries.

One bright spot in the effort was a Wednesday night donation of an industrial printer, ink and 20,000 pieces of paper for fliers. Dave Nolen, who recently moved to the area from Cleveland, told organizers he saw a flier this week and wanted to help, Taylor said.

For the most part, volunteers tried to keep their spirits up, but Taylor acknowledged it was getting harder to hold onto hope they would find Peterson alive.

"I [would be] happy to have her call and say she's in Hawaii having a great time, but at this point, I don't think it's going to happen," he said.

He criticized Peterson's husband for his lack of support in the search.

"He has not taken any part of this. He has not gone on TV to plead for her to come home," he said. "He has done nothing but protect his own [rear]."

Peterson, 53, has been out of sight in recent days except for a visit Wednesday afternoon to the Will County Courthouse.

Illinois State Police officials continue to point out that the disappearance of Stacy Peterson – who is Drew Peterson's fourth wife -- is not even a criminal investigation; it remains a missing person case.

Will County state's attorney's officials have, however, said they're reinvestigating the death of Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, 40, who divorced Peterson shortly before she was found dead in a bathtub at her Bolingbrook home in 2004.

Will County Coroner Patrick O'Neil said late Wednesday he disagreed with the finding of an inquest that her death was an accident.

"It was my opinion that, at the very least, her death should have been ruled 'undetermined,'" O'Neil said in a statement.

Savio's family believed the death was suspicious, O'Neil noted. Her family, which has furnished a copy of her autopsy report to the Tribune, welcomed the reopening of the investigation and said it begged police at the time not to close the case.

Previous descriptions of the scene have noted that while the bathtub was dry, Savio's hair was soaking wet. But the autopsy states that her hair was "soaked with blood." It notes a one-inch laceration on the back of her head and numerous small bruises and abrasions all over her body.

No evidence of drugs or alcohol were found in her system, according to the report. The forensic pathologist who performed the autopsy said the cause of death was drowning and wrote that the "laceration to the posterior scalp may have been related to a fall in which she struck her head."

O'Neil noted that if a recent state law allowing coroners to bypass the jury process were in place in 2004, the ruling would have been different.

He said he had "every confidence the police agency [Illinois State Police] that investigated the case would present its reports to the Will County state's attorney's office for review." Jeff Tomczak was state's attorney at that time, and O'Neil said that any criminal charges would have been his responsibility, and that criminal charges could be lodged regardless of a coroner's jury ruling.

Officials in current State's Atty. James Glasgow's office have discussed the possibility of exhuming her body.

"Are we open to it? Are you kidding?" asked her sister, Anna Marie Doman. "She'd be having a party up there. I know [exhumation] is kind of creepy, but if that's what it takes, that's what it takes."

Medical records and letters obtained from Savio's relatives outline a pattern of alleged abuse and frustration with a lack of action by Bolingbrook police.

In a November 2002 letter to a Will County assistant state's attorney, Savio mentioned Peterson's relationship with his current wife.

"When I found out Mr. Peterson was having an affair with a minor . . . he began to get very violent," she wrote. "Their [sic] has been several times throughout my marriage with this man where I ended up at the emergency room in Bolingbrook for injuries, and I have reported this only to have police leave my home without filing any reports."

Bolingbrook police officials issued a statement this week in which they confirmed 18 domestic calls to the home, but said they always investigated fully. They also noted that they turned the Savio investigation over to the state police, as they have the Stacy Peterson disappearance.

Peterson's mother, Betty Morphey, said her son has done nothing wrong. "I stick by him 100 percent, like any mother would," she said.

Prosecutor Wants Kathleen Savio Exhumed

by Jamie Colby
Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow’s investigation into the 2004 death of Kathleen Savio, Drew Peterson’s third wife takes a new turn this hour. His office is speaking right now to the Savio family about exhuming Kathleen’s body. The Savio family has already said publicly they support the exhumation of Kathleen’s remains for further review.

The prosecutor is not obligated to get the family’s permission to do this but his office tells me he believes this is the right thing to do. What can be learned by looking at Kathleen Savio’s remains three years later? A second autopsy might not be possible but her remains could be thoroughly re-examined. The prosecutor is also not bound by the determination of the jury that heard the inquest and ruled her death an accidental drowning.

I’m also being told for the first time today that the Illinois State Police visited the previous State’s Attorney Jeff Tomczak within days of Savio’s death in 2004 “seeking guidance”. I’ve also learned that Tomczak’s file on the case is slim…there is very little paperwork available on that meeting with police or whatever investigation previous State’s Attorney Jeff Tomczak conducted. Why is that? One source suggests Drew Peterson may have had “connections” that limited the scope but I see no concrete proof of that.

My sense is for the Savio family the current State’s Attorney James Glasgow is giving the case the review it should have had initially.

Stacy Peterson’s disappearance is still being classified a “missing persons” case. I believe it is significant that the two Peterson cars taken by police a week ago have not been released. It’s been reported too that when police returned to the Peterson home executing a second search warrant they found what they were looking for.

I’ve asked a neighbor of Stacy how the children are doing. They are staying with Drew Peterson’s son Steve who is a police officer and is married. His wife works with the FBI. This neighbor believes the kids may have been interviewed by authorities. This would not be uncommon but Illinois police are not commenting on this part of their investigation.

Stacy’s neighbor tells me she believes Drew has found safe haven with former Bolingbrook police officer Mike Robinson and that Robinson has provided Drew she says with new cell phone and car. I’ve called Drew at home and the answering machine has an outgoing message from Stacy.

Here is the new poster being put up in the search for Stacy. A salesman for HP came to the search location and donated 20,000 pieces of paper, a printer and ink so that volunteers could better get the word out.

Search Team Founder Inspired By Personal Tragedy
Texas Equusearch Founder Tim Miller Created The Organization In Memory Of His Slain Daughter

CHICAGO (CBS) ― The drive to find Drew Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, is now leaning on the skills of a man from Texas who is on a personal crusade. As CBS 2's Suzanne Le Mignot reports, the man who founded Equusearch never forgets what gave him a new mission in life.

"Every day I think about Laura," said Texas Equusearch founder Tim Miller. "Every day I miss Laura and again, the grieving process is very long and painful."

On September 10, 1984, Miller's daughter Laura was abducted while walking home from a payphone. Seventeen months later, the 16-year-old would be found dead in a field a short distance from her home. Laura's killer has never been found.

"I made a promise at that time to God and the Lord, never leave another family alone again, so I just didn't know there'd be this many families," Miller said.

In his daughter's memory, Miller founded Texas Equusearch in 2000. To date, the organization has taken part in more than 850 search efforts and located close to 250 people, reuniting them with their loved ones.

"All the families we've helped because of her death, I look back, and her death wasn't in vain," Miller said.

With more than 840 volunteers nationwide, Texas Equusearch members look for missing people on horseback, on foot and by air. They even have their own infrared equipment and use sonar. Among the high profile cases they've been involved in are the Natalee Holloway disappearance in Aruba, the search for pregnant mother Jessie Davis in Ohio, and missing college graduate Stepha Henry in Miami.

"I know this for a fact, there's one thing worse than having a murdered daughter, a murdered loved one, and that's knowing they're probably out there dead somewhere and never being able to say goodbye," Miller said.

Miller says the best feeling he's ever had was reuniting with their families three children that were the focus of Amber Alerts. The organization is supported solely through donations and volunteers.

Drew told police four different stories. They didn't say what they were though.
Well, they sure weren't truthful! Atleast 3 had to be lies and I'm voting that all four were lies.

Whenever you have someone so unstable in his finances or his social relationships you find there is pathology in other areas of their lives too. This man seems to have some trouble finding wives that have any degree of longevity. At some point in time, he is going to run out of women who are lining up to marry him.

Alot of men fail the "one life, one wife" rule without being guilty of homicide. Some men even go through four or five wives without having ever resorted to homicide. Its just that as dysfunction is repeatedly displayed the odds increase. One arson investigation task force had pared down its suspect list to three men and then decided their best bet would be to concentrate first on the man on that list of three who had so many marriages and so many auto accidents. Turned out the task force made the right choice that time too.

Officials may exhume body of Drew Peterson's 3rd wife
'HE DID MANY, MANY THINGS TO HER' | Kathleen Savio told family death 'may look like an accident, but it wasn't'  

November 9, 2007
BY DAN ROZEK AND STEFANO ESPOSITO Staff Reporters
When Susan Savio got the news that her sister had drowned in her bathtub, she immediately wanted to know one thing: Did Drew Peterson kill her?

Kathleen Savio had told family "that if she would die, it may look like an accident, but it wasn't," Susan Savio said in a newly released transcript from a coroner's inquest into the death of Kathleen Savio, Peterson's third wife, who died in 2004 after they divorced.

Joshua Giovencon, a former schoolmate of Stacy Peterson, the 23-year-old missing wife of Police Sgt. Drew Peterson, searches with other volunteers at a construction site in Bolingbrook.
(AP)



"She was terrified of that -- [of] him and him threatening her," Susan Savio said.

The documents were released Thursday as Will County officials considered exhuming Kathleen Savio's body. Her unusual death is getting a second look as teams search for Peterson's current wife, Stacy, missing since Oct. 28.

Savio's relatives say Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow told them Thursday he had decided to exhume the body. The prosecutor's office could not be reached to confirm that.

"We want this to be very private," said Melissa Doman, Kathleen Savio's niece. "We had to bury her once, and we don't want a media circus."

Thursday evening, Drew Peterson was seen outside the Bolingbrook home he shared with Stacy Peterson, barking to reporters, "The media is terrorizing my kids."

'Deathly afraid'
In 2004, a six-person coroner's jury -- agreeing with the pathologist who did the autopsy -- concluded the 40-year-old Savio's death was an accidental drowning.
But Will County Coroner Patrick O'Neil said this week that certain "aspects" of Savio's death raise concerns and that it should have been ruled, at the very least, "undetermined," but he was bound by the jury's ruling.

Savio's relatives have said in recent days that she was "deathly afraid" of her ex-husband. Susan Savio voiced those fears in her testimony during the 2004 inquest.

"He did many, many things to her. He wished only for her to go away."

Savio's body was found in an empty bathtub in her Bolingbrook home. She had no drugs in her system. Savio had a laceration on the back of her head that the pathologist speculated may have been caused by a fall. Her hair was "soaked with blood," he wrote in his report.

In the inquest transcripts, a State Police special agent testified there were no signs of foul play. Special Agent Herbert B. Hardy said Savio's hair was wet and there was a small amount of blood in the tub from the wound at the back of her head. Hardy said investigators concluded the cut came from a fall in the tub.

Drew Peterson was interviewed in the wake of his ex-wife's death, Hardy testified, and nothing Peterson did or said aroused suspicions.

In an interview last week, Drew Peterson criticized Will County authorities for taking another look at Savio's death, insisting it was clear she died from an accidental fall. Though the tub was empty when her body was found, he said State Police conducted tests and determined the plug sealing the tub drain leaked, allowing the tub to empty.

"She just had an accident," he said during the Nov. 1 interview. He and Savio already had finalized their divorce and were moving on with their lives at the time of her death, Peterson said.

Drew Peterson was returning the couple's two sons when her body was found. The house was locked, so he asked a neighbor for help and waited for a locksmith.

The neighbor went in first, Peterson said.

"I didn't want any trouble," he said. "I stood outside, then I heard screaming and went in."

Group Expands Search For Stacy Peterson

Wife Of Bolingbrook Police Sergeant Has Been Missing Since Oct. 28

Rafael Romo BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― It has been almost two weeks since anyone has seen Stacy Peterson, a 23-year-old mother and wife of a Bolingbrook police sergeant.

As CBS 2's Rafael Romo reports, Drew Peterson is not a suspect in his wife's disappearance, but has come under scrutiny by her family. He is not talking to anybody about the situation.

Meanwhile, search crews continue to look for Stacy Peterson, and are asking for more volunteers.

"Today the search will continue, and tomorrow if we don't find anything today," said search team member Lisa Loper. "But we're also in great need of food and drinks for the volunteers."

Two teams of volunteers gathered Friday morning at Westbrook Christian Church, at 1175 Lily Cache Rd. in Bolingbrook. In addition to donations of food and drinks, they are looking for paper products – such as cups, plates and utensils, for the volunteers. Donations may be brought to Westbrook church.

Stacy Peterson's friends and family consider hear disappearance highly suspicious. Meanwhile, officials are taking another look at the death of Kathleen Savio, Drew Peterson's third wife, who drowned in a bathtub three years ago. Will County coroner Peter Siekmann says he thinks a coroner's jury was mistaken when they declared her death accidental. Read More Here

As part of the search on Friday, volunteers will be using a powerful sonar boat in the historic Illinois and Michigan Canal, and a number of lakes yet to be determined.

Sonar boat owner Dennis Watters explained how he intends to help in the search.

"God forbid that she's in a lake or whatever," Watters said. "If she's in there, we will see her body. If we run across a car we see a car, we see boats."

Gary Peterson is a member of Equusearch, a volunteer organization from Texas helping in the search for Stacy Peterson. He said they will bring in a drone Friday afternoon that will be flying in the marshy area near Lemont.

"Each morning I pick three of four target areas, target priority areas that we want to search and we assign people and they go out and they search these pieces of property," Peterson said.

Drew Peterson has maintained that Stacy left him voluntarily and called him to say she had done so. But Stacy's family insists she would not have abandoned their children.

Klaas,
I wonder if that little bitty airplane would bear the weight of a second person if that person only weighed, say about a hundred pounds?

Could a person take someone up in a barrel or something and drop they somewhere I wonder?  Now that would be very hard to find if they dropped them in deep woods or far away in a lake or river?

Or would they have to land and dispose of a container or how could that tiny plane be used in some manner to assist in the concealment of a crime?  I think it may have been because DP says he were there to put a sticker on it that day she disappeared.  Did he take it plane out and do ones that small have to file a regular flight plan?

So many questions with this very complicated man.

440 pounds max payload...it would be close

How much do you figure Drew to weight?  I'm thinking he must weight at least 220, maybe more.

WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON IN ILLINOIS
 
   
 

 
Growing up outside of Chicago, Illinois, I have lived through the horrific John Wayne Gacy murders of the 1970s. This one time children's entertainment clown, befriended 33 young boys and eventually kidnapped, tortured and brutally murdered them. Gacy then buried the bodies in and around his own home. It was a frightening and shameful era for the state of Illinois, but since then, for the most part, my home state has flown under the radar as far as infamous crimes are concerned. Until recently, that is.

The year 2007 has been a mysterious one, to say the least, in this Midwestern prairie state. While kidnappings and murders pop up on our national news channels every single day, it seems crimes in Illinois are becoming a repeat and disturbing topic on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and others. It begs the question: What the heck is going on in Illinois?

Lisa Stebic

A Plainfield, Illinois mother of two, Lisa Stebic was going through a rough patch with soon to be ex-husband Craig when she disappeared on April 30, 2007. She had previously told friends and family members that Craig threatened her life on several occasions. Craig Stebic claims Lisa left for work and simply vanished. He refuses to let their two children be interviewed by police which raises yet another red flag. There has been no sign of Lisa since that fateful day in April.

The Vaughn Family

On a recent family road trip supposedly to a water park, a terrible tragedy occurred. According to Christopher Vaughn, he pulled his SUV off the highway and suddenly his wife Kimberly pulled out a gun and shot and killed their three children in the back seat injuring Christopher in the process. The crimes occurred in mid-June in the town of Channahon, Illinois. Days later, police investigators uncovered a more probable scenario. They now believe that it was Christopher Vaughn who shot and killed his entire family and then purposefully injured himself to solidify his original story. Family members and close friends claim the family appeared to be happy throughout the years. Vaughn is now awaiting a trial.

Nailah Franklin

On September 18, 2007, a 28 year old Chicago pharmaceutical representative named Nailah Franklin never showed up for a meeting a work. Her abandoned car was soon found in Hammond, Indiana. Friends say Nailah was receiving threatening phone calls from a man she dated briefly. Unfortunately, nine days after she went missing, Franklin's body was found at a Calumet City forest preserves. This case is still under investigation.

Alma Mendez

On a beautiful fall October afternoon, Alma Mendez took her usual jog in South Chicago Heights at the Saug Trail Woods. Hours later, this mother of three was nowhere to be found and her car was just as she left it; steps from the trail. A by passer noticed articles of clothing floating in the Saug Lake, where the 39 year old woman was eventually found. There are currently no suspects in this case.

Staci Peterson

Staci Peterson of Bolingbrook, Illinois is 23 years old and the mother of two. She married Drew Peterson who is 30 years her senior and a local police sergeant. Drew has been married a total of four times. Oddly enough, his third wife was found dead in a bathtub. Conflicting coroner's reports show that she drowned even though the tub was supposedly dry. There was also blood found at the scene. Now, on October 28, 2007 Staci has gone missing and police have searched the Peterson home and questioned Drew. Several friends of Staci have reported that she told them if anything ever happened to her, Drew would be responsible. The case is being thoroughly investigated and the search for Staci continues. On a bizarre side note, the couple's two year old daughter is named Laci Peterson.

All of these mysterious crimes have occurred within a six month period. They have also been committed in a 60 mile radius of one another leading law enforcement to wonder if any of them are possibly connected. Investigators do not believe they are related at this time, but continue to research all possibilities. Still, it certainly makes you wonder what the heck is going on in Illinois?

Klaas,
That sounds about right for his weight to me.  Hard to tell since he is always wearing a coat and has something over his face most of the time so hard to know if he is fat or what.

But if he took that little plane up, shouldn't there be a record at the airport?  I bet it would land in a cornfield, too.

220 + 100 + 10 for container = 340 with a hundred pounds to spare.  So even if he weighs more than that, I don't think a hundred pounds more.

I don't necessarily think this is what he did but just thinking out loud.  Container tied to airplane and once aloft, cut the rope?  Just thinking of opportunities to dispose of Stacey's remains if he did something to her.  Or maybe that is more like a possible method.

Maybe he went up to look for a good, remote place to later drive to.

I don't know.  Just hope they find her soon.  She could well still be alive and so fearful of him she is hiding.  That's why I wish they would put him in jail!  Now, not later.

Pretending not to have a key.  Why, he even had to call a locksmith to get in!  That in and of itself if very odd.  Why would he want inside so badly?  Why not leave a note to come get the kids when she got back home?  How did he even know she was inside in the first place and not out shopping for example?

Police: Husband considered suspect in disappearance
Search continues for Bolingbrook woman

 By Evelyn Holmes

(http://a.abclocal.go.com/images/wls/cms_exf_2005/news/local/wls_110807_savio_peterson.jpg)
Kathleen Savio and Stacy Peterson, Sgt. Drew Peterson's third wife and fourth wife, respectively. Savio died in 2004 and Peterson disappeared on October 28, 2007.



November 9, 2007 - Bolingbrook Sergeant Drew Peterson is now considered a suspect in the case of his missing wife, according to Illinois State Police.

Stacy Peterson, 23, was last seen on October 28. She is Sgt. Peterson's fourth wife.
Because of his status with the Bolingbrook Police Department, the investigation into Peterson's disappearance was taken over by Illinois State Police.

Illinois State Police Captain Carl Dobrich said Sgt. Peterson, 53, has moved from being a person of interest in the disappearance of his wife to "clearly being a suspect."

Dobrich also said the case was now a potential homicide investigation.

Dozens of volunteers are aiding in the search for Peterson in and around her Bolingbrook home. Friends and family said she would never leave her two young children alone.

The change in the status of Sgt. Peterson from 'person of interest' to 'suspect' comes as prosecutors got permission to exhume the body of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Savio was found dead in her bathtub in 2004. The death was originally ruled accidental.

"There's no doubt in my mind this wasn't an accident," said one official.

In a petition the Will County state's attorney filed Friday listing the reasons authorities want to exhume Savio's body, prosecutors said a review of evidence in the case "is consistent with the 'staging' of an accident to conceal a homicide."

Prosecutors said they reviewed photographs of the crime scene and autopsy, the autopsy protocol, and police reports.

". . . The one-inch gash in the back of Kathleen Savio's head did not render her unconscious, which would have been necessary for her to accidentally drown in the bathtub," the petition stated.

Will County Circuit Court Judge Daniel J. Rozak signed the petition granting the exhumation Friday. It was not immediately clear when the body would be exhumed.

"There's only one person that stood to gain anything from her dying," said Melissa Doman, Savio's niece. "Her ex-husband, Drew."

Sergeant Peterson denies involvement in either case.

"After the divorce, before the property was settled, he took out another life insurance policy on my aunt. So I've been told. I haven't seen the policy or anything, but that's just what I've been told by family," said Charles Doman.

Is he a suspect in the homicide of Kathleen Salvio as well or did they not address that as yet?

I know it is sad to think about because we hold out hope for the possibility of her being alive.  When you look at this sick individual these women didn't have a chance.  I also have wondered if he might be involved in more murders.

Last night at the very begining of Greta he said to the news people that the media was terrioizing his kids.  Imagine that.

Yes, I can believe he would like for the media and all the searchers to just go away.  So he is now a suspect but has not yet been arrested?  If he is arrested I hope they deny him bail.  I think people would be more cooperative if he weren't lurking around watching and scaring people.

Hey kids the choppers are back in the area circling Drew’s house. there are at least two of them so things are finally picking up steam. Even with this now looking more and more like a murder. Equisearch still needs help in the search. For those of you available to help search parties start forming at 8:00am and also 1:00pm at Westbrook Church in Bolingbrook(1 1/2 block east of Weber rd). most days there are around 60 people they can use well over 100. If you can’t help with that maybe drop a case of water or something off at the church for the searchers. Any and all donations i’m sure would be appreciated.

Drew Peterson has officially been named a suspect in the investigation...

UPDATE: "I would say right now that Drew Peterson has gone from being a person of interest to clearly being a suspect," Illinois State Police Capt. Carl Dobrich says during a news conference today. "I would say this case has shifted from a missing person case to a possible homicide case." More to come.

They should have put him in jail days ago as I think he is running around destroying evidence as he goes and using the kids as a cover for that as well.

Yes, they need to get those kids away from him in a big hurry.  Rick has changed his mind and thinks Peterson is involved and former friends are really afraid of Drew Peterson.

And they are leaving those little kids with him????  That's insane.  They better get them and be very careful in doing so.

Trick him away from them and take them really fast.

Sharon, Rick and Tim think Peterson may be losing his marbles?   :shock:  2 o'clock in the morning?

Yes, they need to get those kids away from him in a big hurry.  Rick has changed his mind and thinks Peterson is involved and former friends are really afraid of Drew Peterson.

And they are leaving those little kids with him????  That's insane.  They better get them and be very careful in doing so.

Trick him away from them and take them really fast.

What are they waiting for?   :2doh:

I don't know Anna.  It makes me sick that those kids are with him.  Not sure what the law says but someone needs to find a way to get them out of there...NOW.

If he was acting crazy last night, one more night is too risky.  Yes, I agree.  I have a very bad feeling for those kids, it's really bothering me.  If he does decide to kill himself and they are there, I have no doubt he would take them with him just to spite Stacey's family.

If even Mims is saying he was acting crazy, then I think he was and someone should use that as a reason to remove them.  Danger ot himself and or others.  I am beginning to wonder if the cops are afraid to even approach him about that for fear it will trigger some event.

This has all the makings of really not ending well. All the signs are right there and I really have to wonder why no one is doing anything.

Heaven forbid something terrible happen to those children and the police are going to have as much explaining to do as the coroner does who did the initial autopsy on Peterson's 3rd wife.

Now A Suspect, Drew Peterson Loses Police Powers

Authorities: Stacy Peterson Likely Dead In Homicide


BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson has been stripped of his powers, and authorities are looking at him Saturday morning as a suspect in the disappearance of his wife.

As CBS 2's Rafael Romo reports, Drew Peterson, 53, was a member of the Bolingbrook police force for 29 years – six years longer than his missing wife Stacy has even been alive.

Stacy Peterson has been missing for nearly two weeks, and Drew Peterson has insisted that she left him voluntarily and called to say she was doing so.

But on Friday, Capt. Carl Dobrich said, "Drew Peterson has gone from being a person of interest to clearly being a suspect."

Dobrich added, "I would say the case has shifted now from missing persons case to a potential homicide."

Late Friday, two Bolingbrook police officers came to the Peterson house with written notice that Drew Peterson is no longer one of them; that pending an internal affairs investigation he is suspended from the force without pay. Peterson never came to the door.

This is the first step the police department takes before firing an officer.

In addition, a neighbor of Drew Peterson's said she might be seeking an order of protection. She said a couple of nights ago, Drew Peterson approached her constantly screaming her name, and she and her family do not feel safe anymore.

Stacy disappeared on Oct. 28. After her family filed a missing persons report, police conducted two separate searches at the Peterson home, on the house, the vehicles, and a trailer, Dobrich said at a news conference Friday.

"Subsequent to that search warrant, we went back several days later on another search warrant based on information that was learned after the first search warrant," Dobrich said.

Based upon the information learned since then, police have concluded that the case had gone "from a missing persons case to a potential homicide case," Dobrich said.

"Early on, we looked at this as a missing persons case, but also believed strongly that based on the (Kathleen) Savio investigation (into the death of Drew Peterson's third wife) and the information that we were gleaning within the first 24 hours of the missing persons case with Stacy, was starting to strongly point to Drew Peterson being a person of interest," Dobrich said. "I would say that right now, Drew Peterson has gone from being a person of interest to clearly being a suspect."

Dobrich hinted that evidence was found in the recent searches of the Peterson house, perhaps computer evidence which is changing the nature of this case.

A neighbor of Drew Peterson said she and her family are afraid to stay in their house at night, and they may seek a restraining order to keep him from their house. It stems from an incident in which she called police after she said Drew Peterson approached her in her driveway, repeatedly screaming her name.

"The thing that really concerned me most of all is that he would go into my backyard and do it again, while the police officer's in the front of the yard," said neighbor Sharon Bychowski. "That sounds just like someone that's coming a little unglued."

Stacy Peterson's friends and family consider her disappearance highly suspicious. A spokesperson for Stacy's family talked with reporters Friday night.

"It's been a whole range of emotions for me -- but, there is some relief in the fact that we are making progress with the case," said Pamela Kay Bosco.

And, she had this message for Drew Peterson: "Be honest with yourself -- come forward -- give information to police if you have anything... just be honest."

Volunteers continue to search for Stacy Peterson. They are gathering Saturday at the Westbrook Christian Church, t 1175 Lily Cache Rd. in Bolingbrook, and plan to search the Green Valley Forest Preserve near Naperville.

Meanwhile, the Will County state's attorney's office announced Friday they plan to exhume Kathleen Savio, who drowned in a bathtub three years ago. Her death was ruled accidental at the time, but authorities now say tell-tale signs of trauma including bruising and head injuries found on Savio's body may mean her death may have been staged to appear accidental.

From Nancy Grace transcripts..11/8/2007

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: How in the world did he get away with dating a 17-year-old girl? It is illegal in Illinois. If an 18-year-old boy is caught having sex with a 17-year-old girl, he is arrested and then has to register a sex offender. How did he get away with it?

LALAMA: That`s a good question. But Joe Hosey from "The Herald News," my understanding is he claims he went to the department, said, I have a 17-year-old girlfriend, and they said, No problem, right?

JOE HOSEY, "HERALD NEWS": I don`t think he necessarily went to the department. The department found out about it, and they went to the state`s attorney`s office, he says, and he was given an opinion that it was OK. The problem -- she was 17, he was 47. That`s legal unless he`s in a position of authority. The department was saying as a police officer, he`s in a position of authority, but apparently, the state`s attorney`s office felt otherwise.
      ------------------------------------------------------------------



ROCKWELL: I got to jump in because the only thing that`s really problematic right now that he has to face is the fact that he`s committed himself to that phone call that was allegedly made. And he may be sorry that he said that if they can`t prove it. The only other thing that I can say is he might have called her phone. He might have called her phone.

LALAMA: Yes, let`s let Mike explain how that might work. He says, She called me at 9:00, said, I`m leaving you for somebody else. He could have messed with the cell phones, correct?

MIKE BROOKS, FORMER D.C. POLICE, CNN LAW ENFORCEMENT ANALYST: Well, as an investigator, I`d say, OK, Mr. Sergeant Peterson, where were you at the time you made that call? And then he`s going to commit himself, Well, I was at this location. OK. Fine. Then go back, take the cell records, see how many cell sites had the call -- her phone had been through, as opposed to where his phone was at that particular time. They can do that to see what cell site the phone was picking on at the time the call was made, and what time -- and where he was and what cell site he was near when he received the call. There better be some good distance between that, or else he could be in some serious trouble.
     ---------------------------------------------------------------------


Haven't been able to find anywhere if the kids have been removed safely. This guy is a loose cannon IMO and if he is guilty of crimes in both of his wives cases, must also be extremely arrogant to think he could get away with it.

Texas Equusearch resumes hunt for Stacy Peterson

 
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) -- Kathleen Savio tried to get someone to believe that her life was in danger. She told authorities, who charged her with domestic battery instead of her husband Drew Peterson. Savio told her family that if she died, no matter what it looked like, her death would be no accident.

•Now, prosecutors are searching for Peterson's fourth wife Stacy, calling Peterson, a police officer, a suspect in her potential homicide. And three years after she was lowered into the ground, prosecutors now plan to exhume Savio's body in the hopes it will give them clues to how she died.

Today, Texas Equusearch, a private firm which specializes in finding missing people, especially homicide victims whose bodies have been dropped into water, resumed its work in the hunt for Stacy Peterson, Drew Peterson's current wife.
She  was last seen Oct. 28. State Police Capt. Carl Dobrich said Peterson is no longer merely a person of interest in the disappearance of the 23-year-old but "clearly" a suspect. He said the case is now a potential homicide investigation.

"We're sad, but we needed to move on, and this is something we've needed to hear for a long time," said Pamela Bosco, Stacy Peterson's adoptive stepmother.

Peterson has said that his wife phoned him and told him she had left him for another man. His attorney, Fred Morelli, has not returned calls seeking comment.

Authorities said that during their initial visit to the Peterson home after Stacy was reported missing, Drew Peterson gave his consent for a search, but limited the number of officers and the area.

The family of Stacy Peterson, who was studying nursing at a nearby junior college, has said she feared her husband, was making plans to divorce him and would not have willingly left her children, ages 2 and 4.

•There's no doubt in my mind it (Savio’s death) wasn't an accident," Will County state's attorney James Glasgow said.

Glasgow's petition to exhume Savio's body argues that the "evidence is consistent with the staging of an accident to conceal a homicide."

A coroner's jury ruled the 2004 death of Kathleen Savio, Peterson's third wife, an accident, even though there was no water in the bathtub where the 40-year-old's body was found face-down, her hair soaked in blood from a head wound.

Investigators theorized the water had slowly drained.

Glasgow said his office has reviewed photographs of the crime scene and autopsy, the autopsy protocol and police reports.
They determined the blood evidence was not consistent with water slowly leaking out of a tub, that the one-inch gash on the back of Savio's head was not sufficient to render her unconscious, and that abrasions on her body were not consistent with falling on a smooth surface like a bathtub.

Glasgow, who took office more than nine months after Savio's death, also said that indicated Savio had sought a domestic violence complaint against her husband.

Peterson was never charged, but Savio was twice charged in 2002 with battery and domestic battery, Glasgow said. She was found not guilty both times.

Jeff Tomczak, the state's attorney at the time that domestic violence charges were filed against Savio and when she died, did not return calls seeking comment.

Savio's niece, Melissa Marie Doman, said family members support the exhumation. She said relatives have long suspected that Savio didn't drown accidentally.

"Something just was never right," said Doman. "I can't really say who, but someone did something."
According to court records, Savio had gotten an order of protection in 2002, alleging a pattern of physical abuse and threats. Drew Peterson has denied involvement in his ex-wife's death.

Savio's sister, Susan Savio, told the coroner's jury that her sister feared Drew Peterson.

In a transcript of the coroner's inquest, Susan Savio told the six-person jury that her sister told family members "if she would die, it may look like an accident, but it wasn't."

• The Bolingbrook Police Department announced that Peterson has been relieved of duty and placed on suspension without pay pending completion of an internal affairs investigation and hearing.

Foul play debated in ex-wife's death

suburbanchicagonews.com/bolingbrooksun - JOE HOSEY - November 9, 2007

JOLIET -- A State police investigator downplayed the possibility of foul play in the death of a Bolingbrook cop's third wife nearly four years before his fourth wife disappeared.

The testimony from Special Agent Herbert Hardy at the May 2004 coroner's inquest of Kathleen Savio's death painted the 40-year-old's demise as anything but fishy. — continued

I think it is hilarious listening to some of these defense lawyers on the talk shows complaining about how the body of his 3rd wife is being exhumed and how the cause of death is being brought into question.

But these seems defense lawyers would let their mouth overload their tails and want a stay of execution or a delay in a trial or a miss trial if they found new evidence that could help their clients, no matter how irrelevant or credible or not credible the evidence is.

Cop once fired over claim of betrayal
UNDERCOVER | Peterson was accused of outing fellow officer to killer

November 10, 2007
BY STEFANO ESPOSITO AND DAN ROZEK Staff Reporters
Retired State Police Lt. Col. Ronald Janota hasn't spoken to Drew Peterson in more than a decade, but Peterson is a man he hasn't forgotten and will never forgive.

In 1985, Janota was Peterson's boss at the Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad -- working out of a "clandestine" office near Joliet, Janota told the Chicago Sun-Times this week. Peterson, for reasons Janota said he has never been able to explain, allegedly sabotaged one of the squad's drug stings and gave the identity of an undercover narcotics agent to a convicted killer under investigation for dealing drugs, Janota said.

"We found out from different sources that the identity of an Illinois State Police officer was revealed to the [killer], by Mr. Peterson," Janota said. " . . . We immediately notified the undercover officer that his life was in jeopardy."

Added Janota, "Putting a fellow officer's life in jeopardy is unforgivable as far as I'm concerned."

But Peterson tells a far different story of the incident, which led to his temporary firing in 1985. And Peterson got his job back after he appealed the Bolingbrook Board of Police and Fire Commissioners' decision to fire him. In 1986, a Will County judge found Peterson's firing to be "excessive."

Peterson began working as a Bolingbrook police officer in June 1977, according to court documents his lawyers filed in the appeal of his firing. Peterson had previously been a military policeman and was responsible "from time to time . . . for the security of persons such as President Gerald Ford [and] the King of Siam," according to the court papers. Two years after being hired at Bolingbrook, Peterson received a "police officer of the year" award, according to court documents.

Peterson didn't admit leak
Beginning in 1978, Peterson was assigned to the Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad, a joint operation of state, county and local officers from Will and Grundy counties. But Peterson got in trouble in 1985, when he revealed to his supervisors that he'd embarked on a solo narcotics investigation of a convicted police killer and drug dealer -- the same man a State Police undercover officer was investigating, according to court documents.

Although he knew about the other probe, Peterson never told his supervisors about his own investigation until it hit a dead end.

"You had better take your guns off -- I have something to say that's real bad," Peterson allegedly told his supervisors at the time.

But Janota alleges he also learned Peterson had leaked the undercover agent's identity to the drug dealing suspect.

"Obviously [the squad's investigation] had to be terminated immediately," Janota said.

Then-Bolingbrook Police Chief William Charnisky recommended Peterson be fired, and the village police and fire board terminated Peterson.

But two separate appellate court judges on different occasions said the firing was excessive. Peterson's lawyers have said he was just trying to put a dangerous criminal behind bars, that he never did anything illegal and never divulged the identity of the state undercover agent.

But Charnisky told the Sun-Times this week: "My opinion was that his conduct was unbecoming of an officer and he shouldn't have been reinstated."

I have been wondering if he had help and this just confirmed to me that he did.

I agree San.  I think there were many people affraid of Drew, maybe because he "had something" on them.  He would have no problem getting one of them to assist him, IMO.  However, they may also be speaking to investigators now.

Missing Illinois Mom's Neighbor Reports to Police Cop-Husband's Odd Behavior
Saturday , November 10, 2007


BOLINGBROOK, Ill. —

A neighbor of an Illinois woman filed a police report against the husband of an Illinois woman and recalled seeing the mother of two sitting at the end of her driveway in tears a week before she disappeared.

"’He's all packed up and I want him to go,’" Sharon Bychowski told FOX News Stacy Peterson said. Six boxes allegedly filled with Drew Peterson’s belongings sat in the couple’s open garage, she continued.


A close friend and next-door neighbor of Stacy and Drew Peterson, Bychowski said she filed a police report on Thursday after Drew Peterson showed up on her lawn at 11 p.m. and began shouting her name: "'Come here, Sharon. … I want you,’" FOX News’ Jeff Goldblatt reported she said.

Bychowski, who at times baby-sits the Petersons’ two children and took them trick-or-treating this year, said she is staying in a hotel under a fictitious name to avoid the area and is contemplating seeking an order of protection against the suspended Bolingbrook, Ill., police sergeant. On Friday he was named a suspect in Stacy Peterson’s disappearance.

On Saturday, Drew Peterson’s mother defended him in a telephone interview with FOX News.

"He didn’t do anything," Betty Morphey said. In response to a question about Drew Peterson’s refusing to let officers search his home, she asked: "Would you want people going through your house?"

Peterson, however, did give a tour of his house to FOX News' Jamie Colby.

Click here to read Jamie Colby's blog: "Inside Drew Peterson's House."

Peterson was suspended without pay on Friday, pending the outcome of an investigation of an incident several months ago that apparently violated Bolingbrook’s no-chase policy, a source said.

Peterson, the shift commander that night, reportedly granted permission to an officer to chase a suspect, who crashed into another vehicle after speeding nearly 100 miles per hour, opening the department to a potential lawsuit.

"None of them have been very much help to him," Morphey said of Peterson’s fellow officers. "They turn their back on him. I find that very disrespectful."

Police said they planned to exhume the body of Drew Peterson’s third wife, Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in a bathtub in 2004. The coroner had ruled the cause of death an accidental drowning.

"Drew Peterson went to being a person of interest to clearly a suspect," said Illinois State Police Capt. Carl Dobrich at a press conference, adding that the case has shifted to a potential homicide case.

"There's no doubt in my mind that it wasn't an accident," James Glasgow, the Will County State's Attorney, said.

Will County Coroner Patrick O'Neil, who reviewed Savio's autopsy, said earlier this week that there were aspects of her death that concerned him.

The autopsy report found that Savio had a one-inch "blunt laceration" on the left side of her scalp, her "hair is soaked with blood" and she also had abrasions or bruises on seven different places on her body.

Family members long have suspected that Savio didn't drown accidentally, Melissa Marie Doman, Savio's niece, said.

"I am all for it, along with the rest of my family, because something just was never right," Doman said. "I can't really say who, but someone did something. I don't think it was an accident."

When prosecutors learned of Stacy Peterson's disappearance, they reopened the investigation of Savio's death.

Stacy Peterson was reported missing Oct. 29 after she didn't arrive at a friend's house. Drew Peterson began dating Stacy when she was 17. They have two children, ages 2 and 4.

Drew Peterson recently told reporters that he believes his wife is alive and said he is being treated unfairly in this case.

Drew Peterson divorced Kathleen Savio, but financial issues hadn't been finalized when her body was found in her bathtub in 2004. There was no water in the tub

BREAKING NEWS

Source: Peterson Searchers May Have Made Discovery
Source Tells WBBM 780 That Search Teams Might Have Located Shallow Grave
BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ¯ A source tells CBS 2 sister station WBBM Newsradio 780 that search teams might have located a shallow grave while searching for missing Bolingbrook mother Stacy Peterson.

Meanwhile, her husband, Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, has been stripped of his powers, and authorities are looking at him Saturday morning as a suspect in the disappearance of his wife.

Sources told WBBM Newsradio 780's Mary Frances Bragiel that something suspected to be a shallow grave was found by search teams from the professional search group Texas Equusearch, which has had members searching for Stacy Peterson for the last week.

But police would not confirm the information, and the location where the suspected grave was found was not disclosed.

http://cbs2chicago.com/local/drew.peterson.stacy.2.564863.html



FYI - this may be absolutely nothing.  Red is in touch with Tim and I'm sure we'll find out soon enough if it's Stacy.

I hope they did find Stacy.  Does he still have his kids after what we have learned about this POS.

The system failed wife #3 and I blame law enforcement for her death and Stacy's death.  This lead to a man thinking he could get away with murder once again.  Now we have 4 children without their mother.  They were left with a man who really is no father to these children.

Last night when I was watching Greta they were talking about the press conference they had during the day.  Mark Fuhrman said someone asked a question if they thought Peterson had help in the disposal.  The man talking looked over at someone else (not sure who it was) and the man shook his head no and the guy turned and looked at the camera and said we can't answer that at this time.

I have been wondering if he had help and this just confirmed to me that he did.

I agree San.  I think there were many people affraid of Drew, maybe because he "had something" on them.  He would have no problem getting one of them to assist him, IMO.  However, they may also be speaking to investigators now.

I agree Klaas.  Like you said even Bobby Cutts needed help.  Here we had a big rought and tough in shape police officer and he needed help.

I know his parents are up there in age but know one is going to tell me they didn't know what kind of animal their son was.  I'm sure they witnesses plenty of bruises on all his wives over the years.

Search for Stacy will continue tomorrow.

Another day and a bit of hope.  I was so hoping they had found her.  Drew had so much time.  He could have taken her body anywhere within what, 14 hours round trip?  And, if he premeditated her murder, as a police officer to boot, he could have had any number of calzones do the deed.  Did Stacy have life insurance?  I truly believe she has been murdered and I think most of the people in this forum and in Bolingbrook agree.  What about that mysterious blue barrel?   Is there any construction site or road work going on?  What about the cadaver dogs picking up a scent from the garage.  What items did they find in the house which I believed was "what they were looking for"?  And those kids, why can't Stacy's family demand visitation?  Or better yet, why can't LE demand to see them to be sure they are okay?  Time keeps ticking and Drew is so arrogant!  There has to be a clue somewhere!  I truly believe if she were alive she would call a family member.  The fact that Drew is not searching is so troubling as well.  Another Scott.  I read the reports on AMW and they read like a sad story.  How long will the Texas group search?  I wish all of her family and friends strength as they face each new day and hope they know how many are praying for them throughout the country.

More News out of Bolingbrook, Illinois - Sgt. Peterson / Stacy Peterson Story
by Greta Van Susteren

We get lots and lots of tips about the Sgt. Drew Peterson matter — both about Stacy, and about his wife #3, Kathleen Savio.

From a very good source, we have been told that one of the jurors in the Kathleen Savio inquest jury was a police officer. We are now hot on the trail to find out if that is true or not. But, a word of caution: just because someone is a police officer and Sgt. Peterson is one, too, do not assume anything sinister. For all we know, they did not know each other or could even hate each other. We are merely chasing it down as an interesting piece of information — we try and chase everything down to be as thorough as possible.

Now for some distressing news about the Bolingbrook Police Chief …pic below…

(http://gretawire.files.wordpress.com/2007/11/chief.thumbnail.jpg)

And this bothers me immensely - I have just been told (I assume it is true) that there is a petition circulating asking the CURRENT police chief to step down. This is WRONG!

First, the CURRENT Chief (Chief McGury) was NOT the chief at the time of wife #3’s death (if anyone should step down it is those involved in that inquest and investigation!) THIS IS AN IMPORTANT DISTINCTION –this did not happen under his watch but under a FORMER Chief.

Second, not only has the current Chief done nothing wrong in connection with the Stacy Peterson investigation, he had the courage to do the right thing!. When he learned about the disappearance, and because Sgt. Peterson works for his Department, he passed the investigation to the Illinois State to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest.

It is terrible to WRONGFULLY target public officials. I do hope those who live in the community defend their Chief.

What do YOU think about this???

 My Update

I am home from the command center & the search areas. I was able to meet & talk to Focus Factor, Marlee, Liliputian & Old Fart.

They had more than enough food (YEAH) and enough help inside. The number of volunteers searching was about 140.

Found out news reported 40 searchers the other day & truth is it was only about 15 to 17.

There wasn't much to help with, they had plenty of help with inside things, so we talked to several people for a while & left. Found out they had to be out of the church as a headquarters by 5 p.m. today & as of the time I was there, no plans for a new headquarters yet.

No plans for a search tomorrow, going to use it as a day to regroup & hopefully start again on Monday.

I did see Sharon the neighbor there several times & of course Tim Miller of Equusearch, he looked very tired.

Although I am familiar with the area near the Peterson home, I drove around some of the search sites and other near areas. For all the times I've been in that area, I never noticed just how difficult this search is going to be.

It's like looking for a needle in a haystack. So many wooded areas, fields overgrown with weeds, rock quarries & so many retention ponds, not just by subdivisions but also in a all the industrial parks, which there are many of those within 2 or 3 miles of his house.

We swung back thru the church to see if they needed help loading up the food but there wasn't even a place to park and lots of people inside, so we figured they did have enough help.

We did see Sharon again outside & Old Fart.

This is an overwhelming area to search, maybe need more like thousands than a few hundred.

I do have one tidbit that I didn't get at the search center. (Nothing I heard there will be posted here.)

A lady that works for my husband went to get her hair cut last nite. She found out that Stacy also got her hair cut at the same place as they were talking about her & said the stylists there all liked Stacy but didn't like her husband. Said he would come with her & tell them how he wanted her hair cut!!!!!! Said he was very domineering over her.

Saw many sattelite news vans, didn't see Geraldo, but Focus Factor did. Odd, did not see one State Police car anywhere in the area. Perhaps they were somewhere else doing their own search.

Before we left to go there, local news had his mother on the phone, she said he was innocent, that she never knew of any restraining order taken out by Kathleen, never knew they had any problems, never knew Stach & DP had any problems etc. said they "don't need this at their age"!!! Said her husband had had a heart attack & she was trying to keep him from all this.

Then talked to some people who said it was on TV that his parents just arrived at his house but later heard it was his brother & sister, so not sure the parents went there or not.

The little kids are there with DP, but not the teenage ones.

So for now, we will have to wait & see if they find a new command center & how long EquuSearch will be here helping.

Is there a picture of the blue barrel?  I've driven throught that area and a couple of ideas come to mind.  Barrels are used along the road for construction.  Sometimes they put them by exits, lined up like bowling pins.  I believe some are used as a kind of 'cushion' in case someone hits them.  I've seen barrels in front of toll booths, along the side of the road, all kinds of places.

There is quite a bit of construction going on in that area.  If you look at the map that was posted, you'll see "55", if you panned east of the map, you'll see a "355", a north/south road that was added may 10 years ago.  There is major road construction to take 355 past 55 (south) and hook it up to the next large interstate, I believe is "57" (not sure if this is the exact number).

Winter is setting in fast.  Many companies are trying to get as much done on road construction as possible.  It's difficult, if not impossible, to pour concrete in freezing weather.  So, I imagine if someone put her in an area that is scheduled for concrete, she may already be under.  The tollway is 3 lanes in that area.  They use machines to do much of the work, and the 'driver' is not near the base of the road.  

I'm not sure anyone would notice a bit of gravel or dirt that was disturbed.  Probably think someone driving to fast or under the influence just went off the road and messed it up.  Pour it on, gotta get it done before everything freezes.

Another thing about the cold for those that never lived where it freezes.  When it gets cold, all the bugs are killed off.  No mosquitos, no flys, no ants (I think the ants hibernate).  If someone made a shallow grave, the site will soon be covered over with tree leaves.  Who would notice that the ground has been disturbed?  All you see is a carpet of leaves, and naked trees.

Bolingbrook is part of the out expansion of civilization from Chicago.  Lot of smaller roads being build, lots of houses, lots of strip malls, lots of forest preserves.  Lots of undeveloped forest preserve land.

Where could a body be dumped?

Dumpster - Bolingbrook is surrounded by many apartment complexes, condo developments, construction sites.  Any of these would be emptied on a regular bases.  Could she be in a landfill?

Water - Lots of retention ponds, lakes, ditches, quarries...could someone hide a body/barrel in the inlet to a retention pond?  Who looks at or cleans these?  In many areas, they 'cap' the inlet pipes with heavy duty grates to keep kids and pets out.  

Many of these areas have small airports.  Would this barrel fit in with others?  Are there places the BB police patrol and have access to that others would not?  Areas that are secluded?

Geraldo - transcribed by Snicker at CTV (thanks Snicker!):

Geraldo Update:
DP blames the media for terrorizing him and his children and for his 25 pound weight loss. Refuses to discuss either case per his attorneys' advice.
Knows KS's body will be exhumed on Monday.
Parents and relatives visited today and brought DP meals.
Similarities with Scott Peterson -- courted the media, tide of public opinion shifted, now he's "being terrorized by the media."
Review of fact about KS's death, discovery of her body, autopsy.
DP told GR that he is not surprised he is now a suspect in the disappearance of SP.
Pam Bosco -- Cassandra went into DP's house to retrieve Tina's ashes and is still there. Kids are crying.
Neighbor Sharon -- DP has never even asked her if she has heard from SP. Sharon believes that SP met with foul play.
Pam -- Wondering why they have not returned.
Sharon -- SP's kids are going to miss their mother. There is not going to be a good outcome.
GR -- Will go back to DP's house to see why Cassandra has not come out yet.


GR Update:
Interview with Richard Mims
Has known DP for decades and housesat for DP when the media became too much for him.
He's hiding out because a lot of strange things are going on with the case. I'm afraid of what might happen to me. Afraid of DP and the police department. With DP's strange behavior it's better that I just stay away from him. DP doesn't like betrayal. He thinks RM betrayed him and told him so. RM said his gut tells him that DP may be responsible for SP's disappearance.
DP said SP left that morning, but Sharon said both cars were in the driveway from 11:00am - 1:40pm.
RM apologized to Sharon for backing DP and now thinks the preponderence of the evidence points at DP.
Pam went to DP's house to see what's going on.
After the break, GR will discuss Kathleen Savio.


GR Update:
Martin, Debbie, and Cassandra have come out of DP's house and back to Sharon's house. DP was friendly and glad that they came over to get the ashes. Everyone was friendly. The kids were playing. Only Martin went in the house. DP said everyone's portraying him as a monster. DP said he's saying things to the media for a reason and Martin agrees for with his reasons. (Huh???) Martin said the kids are fine. Martin "hemhawing" when asked if he thought he was looking at a killer when he was speaking with DP.
KS kept documents in a briefcase which tell the story of what she was going through.
After a break they will talk with KS's family

GR Update:
KS's sister: DP was running around the house with a clothes basket gathering things up--took it out to his care. She asked what he was doing and he said he was gathering stuff for the kids. She is suspicious because Drew was in the house before the police arrived and then he was cleaning up the mess in the bathtub "so the kids won't see it."
Letter sent to KS October 2001 that stated DP was having an affair with a 17 year old and that many people, including the police chief knew about it. GR reading the letter from KS to the SA. Niece and nephew of KS have always been suspicious of KS's death and suspected DP. KS was a happy person and was planning on throwing a divorce party. Aunt Kitty was their babysitter. "She was murdered and he had something to do with it." Kitty told the family that she had these documents in a briefcase and if anything happened to her, they were to be sure they got the briefcase.
Neighbor Steve described the day KS was found. Body discovered with hair over her face, blood coming from her nose, did not notice blood-soaked hair, body was discolored. DP ran up the stairs and became very emotional. Nephew asked Steve if his name was on the incident report. Suspicious because they never heard of Steve until recently and never heard before that this guy was even there. Nephew wonders if Steve works with dead bodies because his description is extremely detailed. Suspicious that Ric Mims is off the scene and then Steve suddenly shows up. Steve claims his name is all over the reports. GR reading the autopsy report that says KS's hair is soaked in blood, but Steve says that that is absolutely untrue. Steve says he spoke periodically since KS's death and last spoke with him last September. Steve is questioning why none of this came out at the time. KS's family saying it wasn't because no one tried to get it out. Steve saying that all this stuff is being brought up about a coverup, but as a police officer, I would think it would have been brought up immediately. GR said he will discuss this in detail with medical experts and it seems this was an open and shut case of incompetence.



GR with doctors Baden, Wecht, and Spitz.
MB: It was a mistake--no disease, no drugs or alcohol. Adults don't drown in a bathtub.
CW: Concur with MB. Collegiality and internal loyalty among officers pales when compared to any other kind of relationships. (I think he was trying to say the opposite: other relationships pale when compared to the collegiality and loyalty among officers?) This case cries out for an involvement for justice at this time. 3 1/2 years ago should never have been signed off as a drowning.
JS: It is unlikely with the history and the gash in the head, this entire thing does not make much sense.
Interrupted for a break--mentioned earlier discovery by TES of a shallow grave . . .


GR Update:
Tim with TES: We were several places of interest. We have two areas of interest (would not say they were shallow graves). Police will go out and look at these areas of interest.

Cassandra Cales stated that she thinks that DP is responsible for SP's disappearance.

Let me make this very clear;

The phone conversation I had with Drew didn’t concern me much, till the media people started evalluaitng the call with me. That’s when I got CONCERNED. Then when I stopped by the pd to meet Tim Miller, I recieved some very evil looks from members of the pd and Tim felt something too cuase he said” you got to get out of here quick” Later I discussed this with him and he told me that he got a BAD feeling from one of the pd officers.Then I got SCARED!!!!!

Here are some thought from a friend.

Would a police officer have access to heavy duty body bags and gloves?  I think so.

Could an ultralight take off from somewhere other than an airport?  Could it fly below the radar in the area?  Would radar even notice an ultralight?  Does it need to file a flight plan?

I believe there are model airplane fields, and other such places in the BB area, open areas.

Could someone have secured a body in a HD bag, to an ultralight and taken off?  Could the cargo have been 'dropped' from a not so high altitude into an existing landfill?  One that is active?  Or some other place?

Could an ultralight be transported in an SUV?  Where do people store these things?

BTW, BB does have a newspaper, but my source said it is only published once a week.

Neighbor Who Found Savio Speaks Out
Carcerano: 'It Was Something I'll Never Forget'


POSTED: 10:13 pm CST November 8, 2007
UPDATED: 11:07 pm CST November 8, 2007


CHICAGO -- A man who said he was there when a Bolingbrook police sergeant found his third wife dead in a bathtub told his story to NBC5's Anna Davlantes Thursday.

Kathleen Savio, who was married to Sgt. Drew Peterson, was found dead in a bathtub of the couple's home shortly before their divorce became final. Savio's family has said it wanted the case to be reopened. With the disappearance of Peterson's wife, Stacy, authorities have turned their attention to Savio. Questions have mounted about whether Savio's death was truly accidental.

At the inquest, Savio's sister testified that her sister told her "if she should die, it may look like an accident, but it wasn't.

"She was terrified of him. He always threatened her."

Steve Carcerano, who was Peterson's neighbor when he was married to Savio, said finding the body would be forever fused into his memory.

"It's something you'd see in a movie; it was something I'll never forget," he said.

Peterson has summoned his neighbor to the house, because Peterson said he hadn't heard from his estranged wife in nearly two days, Davlantes reported. Peterson told Carcerano, who was a locksmith and was going to be at the house soon, to open up the house and see what was going on.

"I went from the closet to the bathroom," Carcerano said. "It looked like there was a rubber exercise ball or something in the whirlpool. When I looked down, it was Kathy. She was naked -- she was dead -- hair over her face."

Carcerano, who said Peterson was steps behind him when the body was discovered in the home that Savio and Peterson owned, described Peterson's reaction when he saw Savio's body.

"He ran upstairs and upon seeing her, he just broke down and started screaming, 'Oh my God, oh my God! What am I gonna tell my kids?'" Carcerano said

The Will County coroner is challenging the accidental ruling (no comma) and said in a statement on Wednesday that "certain aspects of Kathleen Savio's death raised concerns for me as well. In my professional opinion, having served at the time as the coroner for 14 years, it was my opinion that, at the very least, her death should have been ruled 'undetermined.'"

Carcerano said he has never thought twice about Savio's death being ruled accidental, until now.

"It certainly makes you think," he said. "I'm not going to sit here and lie about it."

Davlantes reported that official records document a history of alleged abuse in the marriage, and Savio's family said it would like to have her body exhumed to allow the coroner to reinvestigate her cause of death.

A few more thougths about the tollway extension -

355 extended past '55' (from Klass map) to '80'...opened to bicycle/runner for opening celebrations this weekend - 12 mile stretch.  Not open to vehicles yet.  Exits are to farmland.

Landscaping is not completed, so could someone bury a body there?

Accross the street from the new mall there is a lot of construction, retention ponds, a wetlands between Janes Ave & 355 just south of the Meier grocery.  Did anyone search the wetland/retention?

There are also a lot of sewer line construction, big box retailers, etc.

Whiskeygirl - thanks again for that info.

If I don't respond to a post in this thread it's because I'm busy watching the CTV forum, Gretawire, the NH thread and the front page of SM.  Also checking RU and 24ora on occasion.  So I can't really interact, only bring article and info to the thread.

Thanks for understanding  :wink:

A few more ideas ~

What vehicles does DP have access to as a police officer?  

Do any of these vehicles ave GPS or other location tracking that might offer some clues as to where he may have been at the time Stacy disappeared?  The time leading up to her disappearance or the days after?

Perhaps part of a 911, computer aided dispatch system?

Perhaps their personal vehicles had some kind of tracking system as well?

Klass...thanks for all you do.

Helpful post by Snicker at CTV:

To the best of my knowledge:
Wife #1 - Carol - two sons with DP, one of which is the PO who has reportedly taken care of the younger ones during this ordeal
Wife#2 - Victoria - no kids with DP
Wife#3 - Kathleen - two sons, both teenagers now and Stacy adopted them after Kathleen's death
Wife#4 - Stacy - one daughter and one son
Two additional children of DP, mothers unknown
Total DP children = 8 per Kathleen's sister

 CLTV just reported live that ISP has called off tomorrow mornings search for SP. They would not comment why but CLTV states ISP asks people not come out for search.

I actually listened to the video and they did say it.  Tomorrow is Veterans Day and there are activities in Bolingbrook.  The church which is the command post was holding services.  TES is taking a day off.  I just think it's due to those reasons and nothing else.  TES will be back searching Monday.

 Stay tuned.......There is a specific reason ISP called the search off.

I have no doubts it is unrelated to 355 opening. That would have nothing to do with anything.

My prediction was that there would be charges/an arrest by Monday.

I am keeping my fingers crossed.

I hope they have someone watching the certain areas they want to search.  I feel uncomfortable with them taking off.  This guy has friends in many places and lord knows what they will do if they know they aren't searching especially if they were getting close to where she was.  Look at what Aruba did they moved the body.

Monday is Veteran's day, not Sunday, right?  Maybe they just don't think enough would search on a Sunday?

But people are off from work on Monday I think so they could then, lots of them.

Specific reason does sound like something should be expected tomorrow, however, so we shall see.

I just with those two little kids were not in the care of this very strange and violent person who is their father.

This guy is a combination of Joran and Dennis Jacobs.  He is a dirty cop and no one is going to tell me that his fellow officers don't know.

As far as I could tell -- and I just came home from there after being there since Monday -- the ISP has not done a thing to support the search. As a matter of fact, I went with Tim to an interview in front of Drew's house yesterday and we got there just in time for it to start --it was live -- Tim parked on the curb where the cul de sac curved. The ISP told someone else that was with us that Tim needed to moved his car because he was parked too far out in the street from the curb. WTF!!??? So there's the support from the ISP!

Also a suspecious spot was found--suspecious enough to call in LE to check it out. This was the first time they were called out all week for anything. I went with LE and Tim to check it out and LE said that yes it did look like it could be something and they would take a good look at it on Tuesday. Again WTF????!!!!

(Can you tell it frustrates me? LOL)

It must be frustrating to see this happen.  Did anyone take pictures of the suspicious spot? 

I'm not familiar with how the ISP operates other than the service they provide on the tollway.   :wink:

I wonder how they schedule technicians?  A suspect spot could relate to a number of missing persons cases and perhaps to some unknown person that was dumped.

Would the ISP go out and tag or identify the spot?

Hi Marlee - Thanks for all the volunteer work you have been doing in the recent months. You have our support and you are certainly recognized a Victim's Rights Advocate...You are doing a great job..

I believe it's going to take a miracle to find SP. It's the legacy of Paulus Van Der Sloot . . . and a lot now know it -> unfortunately. Professional Bodybuilder Craig Titus and his professional bodybuilder wife used the exact words - no body no case - in the case where they killed their assistant.. So many people now know it's hard to prosecute someone without a body.. In the Titus case - LE found the body in a burned out Jaguar in the dessert. They are both charged with premeditated murder - destruction of evidence and a corpse.

Given enough time and diabolical motives - someone with an LE background - most likely paid attention to a good bit of the details that will make it hard to find SP. Drew Peterson knew he could be triangulated by his cell phone and probably did not take his with him when he disappeared Stacey.

Miracle do happen... and maybe there will be one here. It certainly will not be for lack of effort...

 - anyway - Good Job Marlee . . . thanks for making missing persons a priority in your life.

There is a special place in Heaven for you.

November 11th, 2007 at 11:01 am
OK, for those of u news junkies who r waiting for updates……………There is nothing going on at Drew’s house this morning. 2 local news vans and a national SAT truck are out front. The guy from the stretch limo went into the Sat truck. Drew’s brother left the house for about 25 minutes and came back with a bag. Breakfast I presume??????????? Several people showed up at Sharon’s house to search, but the search was called off due to the weather and they were given flyers to distribute.
That’s all the news for this Sunday morning !!

Is it me for did anyone find that spectacle at Drew's house last night to be "unbelievable" for lack of a better word?  No offense to the news agencies, they have a job to do but where were the cops (ISP)  if for no other reason than for "crowd control"?  Geraldo was there going into the house and talking to Drew.  The kids were sent into the house to get the ashes?  Maybe I'm a bit over cautious but Drew is an alledged murderer!  Why weren't the police there?  It was kayos from what I could tell on Geraldo's show.  Is this a police investigation or a circus?  I have never seen anything like it! 

Scott Dugan's post this morning reiterates the fact that no police are in the area.  Are they just going to let these civilians take the law into their own hands and have a free for all.  Surely someone from the ISP was watching this all come down on television.  Why did they not go there and control this?  What if someone had gotten hurt?  What if Drew took them hostage?  The many scenarios that could have happened are endless.  Thank goodness they didn't. 

At this stage of theinvestigation, (which I feel may be very close to the arrest of Drew for Kathleen's murder,) I hope none of these "activities" come back to haunt them.  It just seems to me that things are too laid back as far as police surveillance and investigation are concerned.  The family is getting impatient and are taking the law into their own hands.  We all know how important the ashes of Stacy's sister were to her but are they worth another person's life?  I'm sure Stacy would not have wanted them to do that.  Please, please these people need to be patient!

Family members and neighbors may speculate on who Drew really is but perhaps they don't know the real man they are up against and if this guy gets his fuse lit, there could be some awful consequences.  If any of the family is reading this.  Please be careful, don't unnecessarily place you or your children in danger.  Call ISP first before you do anything.  This is an ongoing police investigation.  There is a search ongoing for Stacy.  This is not CSI, for you it is a real life nightmare. If you are concerned about the children with Drew go to Child Services and see if they can assist you in checking on their welfare. Please everyone, be careful!

They haven't said or confirmed whether DP went up in that plane in the past couple of weeks, have they?   There was another case from NY, I think, where a doctor was suspected of using his plane.   This whole case creeps me out, from his dating a 17 year old at the age of 47, number of failed relationships, his line of work, the children involved and, of course, Stacy's disappearance.  (I'm sure there is more that I haven't included, but it's enough  :sad: )

The problem with the plane is we are talking a really small airport.  One of the posters at CTV works at Clow and said even there there probably wouldn't be a record.  Drew's plane wasn't kept at Clow it was kept at Cushing which is even smaller than Clow.

False Alarm Saturday In Search For Stacy Peterson
Remains Of Dog Found By Search Party Saturday
BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― After a false alarm, Stacy Peterson search crews came up empty again. Now with focus turning to Drew Peterson's third wife, a man familiar with that case is speaking up, as CBS 2's Mike Puccinelli reports.


Kathleen Savio's death was ruled an accidental drowning, but now police say teh killer staged the crime scene to make it look like an accident.

The man who found Kathleen Savio dead in a bathtub three years ago talked Saturday evening about the moment when Drew Peterson entered his ex-wife's home and looked at her dead body lying naked in a drained bathtub.


"I looked right into his eyes, right when that happened," said Steve Carcerano. "He was very emotional right away."


Carcerano says he still maintains Peterson's innocence.


But Savio's niece and nephew say that's ridiculous. They say Sgt. Peterson killed his third wife. And they say Friday's decision by the Will County State's Attorney to order her body exhumed was something Kathleen would have wanted -- so that in their view, justice delayed is no longer justice denied.


"At least to us we know that we were right and that she was right because she's the one who said he's going to kill me," said Charlie Doman, Savio's nephew.


Melissa Doman says she just wishes law enforcement officials had taken Kathleen's numerous claims of abuse seriously years ago.


"There's a lot of people who didn't take it seriously and because they didn't, my aunt's gone and poor Stacy's missing now for almost two weeks," said Melissa Doman.


Saturday Martin Forgue and one of Stacy's half sisters went to Stacy's house to recover an urn containing the ashes of Stacy's late sister Tina who died recently from cancer. Forgue said Peterson looked and seemed tired. He also said the 53-year old cop tried to explain why Stacy is missing.


"He just said that she left, circumstances were all weird, all this stuff is blowing up around him and people are twisting some stuff, making him look like a monster," said Martin Forgue, a relative of Stacy's.


Peterson remained in seclusion Saturday in his home. He said, "no comment," when asked if the children were going to be staying with someone else. Peterson's children were ushered into the house by a relative Saturday amidst a media throng.



There will be no search Sunday. Search teams will go out again on Monday.

Saturday's search for Stacy Peterson led search teams to discover the remains of animal bones Saturday. Sources told CBS 2 sister station WBBM Newsradio 780 that search teams from the professional search group Texas Equusearch came upon what was suspected to be a shallow grave.

Texas Equusearch founder and head Tim Miller would not say where the discovery was made, but said it was not in the Green Valley Forest Preserve near Naperville where teams had been searching earlier Saturday. He said they had been looking about six miles from the search command post -- the Westbrook Christian Church, at 1175 Lily Cache Rd. in Bolingbrook.

Peterson's husband, Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, 53, has been stripped of his powers and authorities are looking at him Saturday as a suspect in the disappearance of his wife. He was a member of the Bolingbrook police force for 29 years – six years longer than his missing wife Stacy has even been alive.

Stacy Peterson has been missing for nearly two weeks, and Drew Peterson has insisted that she left him voluntarily and called to say she was doing so.

But on Friday, Capt. Carl Dobrich said, "Drew Peterson has gone from being a person of interest to clearly being a suspect."

Dobrich added, "I would say the case has shifted now from missing persons case to a potential homicide."

Late Friday, two Bolingbrook police officers came to the Peterson house with written notice that Drew Peterson is no longer one of them; that pending an internal affairs investigation he is suspended from the force without pay. Peterson never came to the door.

This is the first step the police department takes before firing an officer.

In addition, a neighbor of Drew Peterson's said she might be seeking an order of protection. She said a couple of nights ago, Drew Peterson approached her constantly screaming her name, and she and her family do not feel safe anymore.

Stacy disappeared on Oct. 28. After her family filed a missing persons report, police conducted two separate searches at the Peterson home, on the house, the vehicles, and a trailer, Dobrich said at a news conference Friday.

"Subsequent to that search warrant, we went back several days later on another search warrant based on information that was learned after the first search warrant," Dobrich said.

Based upon the information learned since then, police have concluded that the case had gone "from a missing persons case to a potential homicide case," Dobrich said.

"Early on, we looked at this as a missing persons case, but also believed strongly that based on the (Kathleen) Savio investigation (into the death of Drew Peterson's third wife) and the information that we were gleaning within the first 24 hours of the missing persons case with Stacy, was starting to strongly point to Drew Peterson being a person of interest," Dobrich said. "I would say that right now, Drew Peterson has gone from being a person of interest to clearly being a suspect."

Dobrich hinted that evidence was found in the recent searches of the Peterson house, perhaps computer evidence which is changing the nature of this case.

A neighbor of Drew Peterson said she and her family are afraid to stay in their house at night, and they may seek a restraining order to keep him from their house. It stems from an incident in which she called police after she said Drew Peterson approached her in her driveway, repeatedly screaming her name.

"The thing that really concerned me most of all is that he would go into my backyard and do it again, while the police officer's in the front of the yard," said neighbor Sharon Bychowski. "That sounds just like someone that's coming a little unglued."

Stacy Peterson's friends and family consider her disappearance highly suspicious. A spokesperson for Stacy's family talked with reporters Friday night.

"It's been a whole range of emotions for me -- but, there is some relief in the fact that we are making progress with the case," said Pamela Kay Bosco.

And, she had this message for Drew Peterson: "Be honest with yourself -- come forward -- give information to police if you have anything... just be honest."

Meanwhile, the Will County state's attorney's office announced Friday they plan to exhume Kathleen Savio, who drowned in a bathtub three years ago. Her death was ruled accidental at the time, but authorities now say tell-tale signs of trauma including bruising and head injuries found on Savio's body may mean her death may have been staged to appear accidental.

Lots fields and river searched, Mr Drew is very smart not to put at fields, dogs can find easy.

Could it be stored in a storage lockers? Romeoville has storage lockers on route 53 south of 135 street where the belair drive in movie was, if anyone here been searching. the storage lockers could hold the answers, if Mr Drew have a storage locker it will not be on his name. it will be a good idea to have dogs walk around the lockers... 
 


Given that this is often a hiding place, I hope they have all in the area been searched with the dogs.

This part caught my eye.

"Lots fields and river searched, Mr Drew is very smart not to put at fields, dogs can find easy. Could it be stored in a storage lockers?

I don't know where I saw this - maybe a movie, a TV show, new reports - but I never forgot it. For example, someone puts a body in a sealed container and takes it to the storage locker. I've also heard about bodies in freezers in storage lockers, but that would have to be arranged ahead of time. We know that Drew planned this. Perhaps he bought a freezer months ago and stored her there. Then years later, the police find the locker and body.

The one nagging thing is that he didn't leave any clues behind. I would consider him very smart, cunning and cagey. As a policeman, he would know what to do without leaving any traces behind. Maybe they will never find her body. Too bad they can't legally "water board" him to get him to talk.

I believe he will go down for something. It would be ironic if he goes down for the bathtub murder of Kathleen, which they are working on now.

On Saturday I think there was close to 120-130 searchers, more than enough food, water, paper products etc.

I spent a fair amout of time being a parking lot attendent.  :D  The church was having 2 after noon recitals and we were asked to have searchers park  in the back-side lot so I picked that task.

Exhumation order--"staging of an accident"
Ric Mims: "I think anyone who's a threat to him should be concerned."

New reports as of tonight:
Tim said they had some areas of interest. Tim went back to TX to get more equipment for use in the searches. Tim believes she will be found in the water. Looking for blue barrels in the water.
Kitty's letters to media, ASA, handwritten notes about anything ever happened to her all kept in a briefcase.
Current SA would not say the previous investigators dropped the ball, but did say that something just wasn't right with KS's death being called an "accident."
More after the break.

Three detectives in DP's house today? Reporter didn't see it.
Two plain-clothes ISP officers canvassed the neighborhood today, but couldn't really get anyone to say what it was about. Reporter assumed it was to continue their investigation.
Exhumation of KS may be tomorrow--has not been confirmed. Family would like it to be as private as possible.
Tim Miller found a 7' X 3' area that appeared to be a shallow grave yesterday--doesn't think it is related to Stacy, but could be related to the Lisa Stebic case

As far as I could tell -- and I just came home from there after being there since Monday -- the ISP has not done a thing to support the search. As a matter of fact, I went with Tim to an interview in front of Drew's house yesterday and we got there just in time for it to start --it was live -- Tim parked on the curb where the cul de sac curved. The ISP told someone else that was with us that Tim needed to moved his car because he was parked too far out in the street from the curb. WTF!!??? So there's the support from the ISP!

Also a suspecious spot was found--suspecious enough to call in LE to check it out. This was the first time they were called out all week for anything. I went with LE and Tim to check it out and LE said that yes it did look like it could be something and they would take a good look at it on Tuesday. Again WTF????!!!!

(Can you tell it frustrates me? LOL)

It must be frustrating to see this happen.  Did anyone take pictures of the suspicious spot? 

I'm not familiar with how the ISP operates other than the service they provide on the tollway.   :wink:

I wonder how they schedule technicians?  A suspect spot could relate to a number of missing persons cases and perhaps to some unknown person that was dumped.

Would the ISP go out and tag or identify the spot?



Any further information on this "suspicious" spot?  Where was it?  Any pictures?

Search firm's chief heads to South to help find missing teens
Crews to focus on water before ice sets in

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/...hi_tab01_layout

Highlights:
The director of a national search firm that has been scouring fields and woods for Stacy Peterson said Sunday he is leaving Illinois to start searches for two missing teens in the South. Tim Miller, founder and director of Texas EquuSearch, has been organizing daily searches for the mother of two who was last seen by her husband Oct. 28.

Miller said he spent Sunday reviewing last week's findings, including hundreds of aerial images. In the coming days, volunteers will scale back the ground search and concentrate on bodies of water before icy temperatures make those searches impossible, he said. "I don't think it's going to be long" before searchers uncover something, he said. He added, however, that he felt the same way last Monday. Miller said he is leaving because of searches for missing teenagers in Alabama and Georgia but would return to Bolingbrook midweek. "I will be back," he said.

If Kathleen Savio was murdered, other, terrible questions loom

The urgent question, "What happened to Stacy Peterson?" is now at least temporarily eclipsed by the question, "Why wasn't the cause of Kathleen Savio's death investigated more thoroughly back in 2004?"

 Savio (right) was the third wife of Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson, and she was found dead in her bathtub shortly before their divorce was to be finalized.
(http://blogs.chicagotribune.com/news_columnists_ezorn/images/2007/11/10/stacypeterson.jpg)(http://blogs.chicagotribune.com/news_columnists_ezorn/images/2007/11/10/savio.jpg)

 Stacy Peterson (left) is, of course, Sgt. Peterson's fourth wife , and her Oct. 29 disappearance has become the latest in the sad series of real-life  mysteries that grip cable-news watchers coast to coast. 

Friday, when the Illinois State Police took the highly unusual step of naming Sgt. Peterson a suspect in his wife's disappearance, we learned from Will County prosecutors that,  gee, in retrospect, Savio's death three years ago had "signs indicating it was a homicide."

Savio's  wounds and the blood evidence were inconsistent with the ruling  made at the time that she'd accidentally drowned in the tub, prosecutors said.

In their petition, prosecutors wrote that the head wound "did not render her unconscious" and that "evidence is consistent with the 'staging' of an accident to conceal a homicide."

"The abrasions that were seen on her left buttock and her elbow are not the type of injuries that would occur on a smooth surface as those in the tub area," Will County State's Atty. James Glasgow said....

"No one drowns in a bathtub without being unconscious," Glasgow said, adding the (independent  medical) examiner will look for "fractures of bones [and] subcutaneous bruises that could indicate choking or other injuries" (in a new autopsy)...

Glasgow appeared to back up members of Savio's family who have said Peterson threatened to kill her and abused her physically, but that police and prosecutors never charged him.

Was the earlier ruling an oversight?  An error made in haste? Or did Sgt. Peterson get the  benefit of  doubt in the murder investigation and in the domestic abuses cases because of his status as a police officer? And who is ultimately accountable for these decisions?

Such questions demands furious scrutiny: If the suspicions of the Illinois State Police prove true,   Stacy Peterson may have paid for that ruling with her life.

Post by: Patti on November 12, 2007, 04:07:47 AM
I just read the autopsy report on Kathleen Savio - Shocking!

I am not a doctor, but after reading the report, it appears that there was a struggle.  There is bruising on her arms, thighs and hands not to mention the contusion to the head.  The finger prints to the chest area could indicate that she was pushed or held under water.  However, I read that there was no water in the tub.  The findings of drowning is based on the cone of mucus found in the nose.  Is it possible that she may have been beaten in that tub, or, merely, placed in the tub after the fact?

Surely, if she had drowned in the tub, after hitting her head, the hair would be washed clean of most, if not all of the blood.  However, the description of there being dried blood throughout the hair indicates to me that there was no water in the tub, in which she was supposed to have drowned in.

Another thing that is troubling is the condition of the lungs.  The autopsy doesn't mention any fluid in the lungs.  And again the doctor clearly states that he bases his conclusion on the fluid that had discharged and formed a cone from the nostils, she may have simply had a cold, as the autopsy clearly states that there was a minimal sign of bronchitis.  She may not have drowned, at all.

Drowning or no, the other injuries, especially the brusing at the elbows indicate, to me that she was pushed (again consistent with the finger prints to the chest area) and probably fell, catching herself on her elbows at such a force that would cause a bruising of that area.  The bruising of the right index finger is classically what is called a "defensive wound" and is consistant with her taking a beating.

Now the only question is:

How does a coroner ignore the obvious and indicate a, mere, drowning when a person is displaying signs of a struggle?  How can a woman who, according to the autopsy, is in good health come to have a contusion to the skull area?  Surely, there is no indication of a heart attack, aneurysum, or stroke.  There is nothing, that would indicate that the blow to the head could have come from passing out from natural causes.  Besides, while people slip in bathtubs and drown all the time, that is pretty hard to do with no water present.

There is somthing very wrong in Will County that has been ignored.  Had there been a fair investigation into the death of Kathleen Savio, Stacy Peterson would still be with us.

I suggest that Will County check their records for any unsolved cases in their area involving the beating deaths of women, even prostitutes.  Obviously, this officer of the law would have had plenty of opportunities to come in contact with women both in dating and in the execution of his job.

I think the storage unit is a possibility.  That surrounding area has quite a few.  From memory, here are some that are older and not as secure as they make newer facilities.  Nonsecure = no fence, security card/number access, no video, etc.  I'm not sure if anyone would notice if someone left a body in a locker. 

There are also quite a few vacant industrial/commercial buildings. 

Here is a map of county forest preserves, for the county north Bolingbrook, "DuPage County".  I believe the Peterson home would be in the rectangular area that is used for a 'key', lower left hand corner.  For reference, note "O'Hare" airport upper right corner of this map.   Also note where '355' and '55' would meet at the bottom of the map.

http://www.dupageforest.com/preserves/preserves.html


Here is a map of the "Will County" forest preserve district.  In the 'orange' colored section (click to expand) you can see Bolingbrook in the upper right hand corner.  Much of Will County is not developed.

http://www.fpdwc.org/countymap.cfm

For those that are 'map' inclined, note the junction of '355' and '55' is at the eastern boundary of Bolingbrook.

Volunteers to search again today for Stacy Peterson

November 12, 2007
BY ANNIE SWEENEY Staff Reporter

The volunteer search for Stacy Peterson will resume this morning, the family of the missing Bolingbrook woman said.

The search for Peterson, who was last seen Oct. 28, was halted Sunday at the request of Illinois State Police, a family spokeswoman said.

Pam Bosco said State Police asked them to hold off Sunday, but this could not be confirmed with investigators. Texas Equusearch, the rescue group leading the search for Peterson, a 23-year-old mother of two, had already planned to take a break Sunday to review its maps.

"We were told as the investigation got more in-depth, they wanted it to be more controlled," Bosco said, referring to the rescue group.

Volunteers who showed up Sunday to help search were asked to distribute leaflets. But the ground search will resume at 8 a.m. today at Westbrook Christian Church, 1175 Lily Cache Lane in Bolingbrook.

"I believe we will resolve this," Bosco said. "We don't want to lose hope that we're going to find her. We'll eventually find the answers and resolve this case."

Peterson's husband, Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, has been named a suspect in her disappearance.

Investigators are also reviewing the death of Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in her bathtub in 2004.

Email from The Scene: FNC’s Jeff Goldblatt Outside Sgt. Peterson’s Home
by Greta Van Susteren
Email just received from FNC’s Jeff Goldblatt: 

The email below is to just give you the behind the scenes…it takes you inside our work….and also note how rumors arise, and we are compelled to chase them down ….just in case they are true:

From: Goldblatt, Jeff
To: Van Susteren, Greta
Sent: Mon Nov 12 11:39:30 2007
Subject: Morning

There is rampant speculation out here in Bolingbrook among some of my competitors covering this story. The latest rumor: that a relative or friend of Drew Peterson has committed suicide, because the heat of police questioning got to him. It’s mind boggling how misinformation gets spread on some of these stories. Then again, it’s our business to gather information, and you still have to turn a story, even when police aren’t talking.

FYI: the Will County State’s Attorney will not reveal when the exhumation of the body of Kathleen Savio will take place. However, it seems as if today is unlikely, because of the observance of Veteran’s Day. Typically, this is a day for families to visit cemeteries to pay respects to loved ones, and it seems implausible that a high-profile exhumation would take place, and potentially disrupt those visiting other gravesites.

Have a good one…

Note: Jeff emailed me again to make sure you know that neither Sgt. Peterson’s brother nor Ric Mims (his friend) is dead. The above is meant just to show you how rumors send us scrambling…

Greta, could you find out if Drew’s attorney (Fred Morelli) is at all related to Alex Morelli, the Bolingbrook policeman who witnessed the ’supposed’ will of Kathleen Savio.

Maybe someone from Bolingbrook would know.

I spent every day last week working with EquuSearch on the ground searching for Stacy Peterson. I also worked the weekend prior with family and friends of Stacy searching a nearby preserve. I do not know Stacy nor did I know the family or any close friends prior to the search efforts.

Plainfield Mom who has posted here so graciously brought food for the EquuSearch volunteers today. She is a wonderful person and is always willing to help. She also helped in the massive Lisa Stebic search at Silver Springs State Park and she attended the six month vigil that was held for Lisa a couple of weeks ago (where I met her in person).


I am currently active in the search for the missing mother of two, Lisa Stebic. From 9:00 AM to nearly 7:00 PM all day yesterday, Sunday, another devoted person and I searched for her remains. The other individual is just as dedicated as I am to finding the remains of Lisa Stebic. We will not give up and pray that Justice will be served. It is very important to both of us that justice be served.

The ground search for Stacy was terminated for Sunday and the focus now is on the water by utilizing sonar technology as the information EquuSearch is in possession of lead them to believe this is where she will be found. It appears that there will be limited ground searching done with horses and on foot. Through my close friend, we were able to provide Tim Miller of EquuSearch a helicopter on Wednesday (or Thursday) of last week and then arranged for a plane on Saturday (no helicopter available on such short notice) for the search efforts. There is a lot of water area to cover in this region. I heard the helicopter pilot was amazing, allowing them in very remote areas and getting almost close enough to reach out and touch the ground.

It is so wonderful to see so many people coming together in a united front searching for nearly a needle in a haystack all in the efforts to give the family hope and to see that justice will eventually be served. Most of us on this planet are still a really great bunch of people! Everyone pat your back if you fit into this great bunch!

With respect to the media being on top of the search efforts in live fashion; I understand this is the hottest story since Lisa Stebic went missing but I also understand the delicate nature of the situation and the mindset of the beast behind the crime, as is apparent by the way he hides under his cowboy bandanna covering his face. I pray that the media does NOT get a hold of any information about a legitimate discovery of the body until AFTER the man is arrested, or at least if they do get a hold of such information they wait until after an arrest is made to broadcast it. I fear that prior knowledge of a legitimate find will lead him on a “Jim Jones” mentality path and he will not only take his own life but that of his children as well. We must all take special note to remember the children in all of this for they are victims and will continue to be victims over and over gain for a long time to come.

The man [Drew Peterson] is a coward and it is apparent that he choses to not do what is right. I realize that one is presume innocent until proven guilty but I also know that just because one is “presumed” innocent doesn’t mean that it’s not possible for their guiltiness to be as obvious as a fat dog.

I beg the media to please report “responsibly” in this delicate and highly stressful situation. More than using kid gloves, please, tread wisely; always with the thought of the well being of those children in mind and what could potentially happen to them should the person who has them in their care feel threatened by the information that is being presented in live media coverage.

Love your reporting, Greta.

I asked the same question a couple of days ago...then I heard on the news this morning (can't remember what station--Fox, perhaps) that DHS or whatever for Illinois cannot do anything until he is arrested. Sounds pretty weird to me, but that is what was said.

I don't believe that because people have said he was "acting crazy."  Not all people acting crazy get arrested.

Sounds like he has some more of those friends of his in Children's Services to me.

No kidding Anna, you know you hear everyday of people loosing custody of their childred for way less than this ... If and when they do arrest him, how is that going to work with the children?  It's almost like setting them up to be in a bad situation.  We could only hope and pray there is much more going on than we are aware of ... Who takes responsibility if God forbid something does happen?  Oh, yeah, AFTER the fact, we get the president to sign some law?

I just hope a pray for the children it doesnt turn out to be too little too late type of situation.

I wonder if they are already afraid to approach him on this for fear of what he would do?  They need to get him far away from the children like ask him to come to police station to ID something or other and then snatch them while he is away.

But I bet he would take the kids to the station with him.  I think he is already using them as a sort of shield, too.  I sure hope I am wrong but does anybody else get that feeling or is it just me?

Another email just received from my colleague FNC’s Jeff Goldblatt …..he is at the scene in Bolingbrook, Illinois (and make sure you listen to GretaCast in the the blog entry below…it is a conversation with Sgt. Peterson’s friend - maybe ex friend now - Ric Mims…you can listen / eavesdrop on our convesation by clicking on the blue box..)

Subject: Here ya go

A ray of hope this afternoon among those looking for Stacy Peterson. Family spokeswoman, Pamela Bosco just held a press conference in Bolingbrook to brief reporters on today’s search, which included 70 volunteers. She says, Illinois State Police has provided search teams with new information about new areas, which will be searched tomorrow. “We were given…some information, that police have had, that we were now provided, they are leading us into another area.” Bosco was short on specifics on the location for tomorrow’s search. And I don’t blame her. After all, her first mission is to find Stacy…not to aid reporters.

On another note, it seems likely that tomorrow will be the day to unearth the body of Kathleen Savio. A tent was put up today at the suburban Chicago cemetery where Savio was buried nearly four years ago, presumably to give the Savio family their privacy. I talked to Kathleen’s niece, Melissa, a few hours ago. She was hopeful that the exhumation would take place at night. She stressed how appreciation to the media for helping bring to light the suspicious manner of her aunt’s death.. The family believes the media has helped shine the truth on the death of Kathleen. That said, they feel the exhumation should be a family affair, with the media kept away.

It is absolutely ironic that after all these years the families of Kathleen Savio and Stacy Peterson have formed this pact of solidarity. Remember, Drew and Stacy said their “I Do’s,” a mere 8 days after the finalization of Drew’s divorce to Kathleen. And Stacy Peterson had just given birth to her son Anthony. When asked by a reporter today about the imminent exhumation, Pamela Bosco said, “I think both sides are very happy. I think it will provide a lot of answers to the questions we have and hopefully, progress the case a little bit faster than it is.”

Have a great show tonight. I’ll be back here early tomorrow morning.

 Dan Abrams Update:
Pam Bosco said that SP's mother leaving their family has nothing to do with SP's disappearance and the circumstances were completely different. She said "Disappearing is not an inherited trait, as far as I know."
New evidence re KS's death was discovered during the investigation of SP's disappearance and that evidence formed the basis for the reopening of the investigation into KS's death and the exhumation of her body.
Dr. Kobilinski stated that KS's death is suspicious and detailed why.
The exhumation is expected to take place within the next 24 hours. Should take 4-6 hours.
Dr. K said exhumation and examination of her body may not produce any further evidence as to COD if her body has deteriorated to much to determine anything new.

 Greta Update:
SP Missing Person case is now a Possible Homocide
Interview with Wife #2's (Victoria) daugher Lisa (in profile so she protects her privacy). Her mother was married to DP from 1982 to 1992--while Lisa was ages 9-17--and she lived with them during their marriage. DP was extremely strict and sometimes not very nice. He punished her by hitting her with a belt and he handled the discipline in their home. From the outside their marriage looked good, but it wasn't. He was very abusive and watched every move her mother made. Victoria was not allowed to have friends or talk to family--only person DP wanted her to have in her life was him. Lisa did not see, but heard the physical abuse of her mother. He did a lot of mental abuse to her mother. Victoria wanted out because DP had not been faithful to her for many years. He was dating KS while married to Victoria. Their house and business was tapped and he was doing everything he could to protect his assets. They found out afterward that the phones had been tapped. DP still talks to Victoria. He just seems to pop up. DP talked toVictoria a couple of months ago. Her mother is still cordial to DP -- feels she has to be because she is still afraid of him. DP has told her mom that he can hurt her and she feels obligated to be nice to him to protect herself. DP called to tell Victoria that KS had died, that it was an accident and some people might try to contact her. Victoria wondered about DP's involvement in KS's death. Lisa told Victoria about Stacy's disappearance. Lisa wanted her identity protected because she feared DP her whole life, but she no longer does, so she's not hiding from him now, she just wants to maintain her anonymity now. Victoria is still very cautious and careful now because she's extremely scared of DP. The whole idea of DP being loose now causes Victoria to be fearful because DP told her "I could kill you and make it look like an accident." She relayed this to her daughter within the last couple of weeks.

Greta Update
Interview with Dr. Baden and Steve (friend of DP who claims he first saw the body of KS after death)
KS was found sitting up, but leaning forward to one side with her head down and her hair over her face.
Dr. said due to the levitity, KS would have died several hours before she was found and he would want to know where any suspects were during the time period earlier in the day.
No evidence that she was preparing to take a bath or had just finished a bath--no bathrobe or towels set out in the bathroom.
The tub was a small oval whirlpool bath.


Greta Update:
SP's mother disappeared when she was 15. Mother had a pattern of visiting for a week, disappearing for several months, visiting for a week, and disappearing again, etc. But the last time she left she never returned. SP's parents were divorced before her last disappearance and he had remarried.
Christie Cales (SP's mother) left and never returned not long after her second daughter (Lacy) died. Another daughter died previously.
Yelton Cales (SP's brother) is in prison right now for sexual assault -- victim was 15 and he was 23.
SP's father Anthony Cales is alive, but not a big part of the family's life. There was alcohol abuse.
Sisters Cassandra and Tina were very close to SP. Tina died last year of colon cancer and it was her ashes that were retrieved from DP's house last weekend during GR's show.

My theory is that Stacy didn't have a good child hood, and Drew came along and sweet talked her (lied to her) and manipulated her into thinking he was Mr. Perfect. Psychopaths tend to be sometimes good liars and very deceptive and manipulative.

I think as time went by and the smarter and the more street smart Stacy got, she wanted out. She didn't want to be abused anymore. So she tried to leave, Drew found out and killed her. Power and control being the motive. She wasn't going to be his property, and his ego cannot take being left, so he killed her.

I think Stacy was VERY courageous, and she had learned a lot since she was 17. It is so sad that Drew found out and murdered her.

I think Illinois has the death penalty, because this evil monster deserves it.

I say we beat him up, drown him, bring him back and them slit his throat and dump his body somewhere and be done with it. That would make the punishment fit the crime.

I agree.

On Dana tonight Wendy Murphy talked about vigilante justice tonight and how she understood why people are doing it more and more.  People have lost their faith in law enforcement because of people like Drew Peterson and other bad cops.  In this case it would be well deserved.

 I've been thinking long and hard about KS "drowning" in the tub and this is what I've come up with after reading the autopsy report and listening to reports:

Given the description of KS's body in the autopsy, she was probably in a fetal position with her head toward the left end of the tub where the faucet is (it is mounted off-center toward the left as you're looking at the tub) with her legs bent under her (the tub was too short for her to sit with her legs extended), leaning toward her left side with her head down and her hair over the top of her head.

Lividity is the pooling of blood in the lowest areas of the body after death, so if her chest was the area of the lividity, her head would have to have been on the bottom of the tub probably facing to the right. Fingerprint blanching (blanching is like when you press your arm after a sunburn and it stays white for a few seconds--blanching is areas void of blood or discoloration) was noted on her breasts, left thigh and calf. If her arms had been held toward her chest (in a defensive posture) between her chest and her left leg postmortem, the spots where her fingers and arm were pressed would have less visible lividity (blanching).

Her hair was soaked in blood--which may have appeared wet but not necessarily wet with blood since the blood would have darkened after being there so long. Her eyes were closed and her tongue was clenched between her teeth. There was wrinkling (or "pruning") of her left hand and palm indicating they had been submerged in water for a while (maybe her left hand landed between her legs and not pressed up against her chest as her right one was).

There was a 1" laceration on the left side of her head near the bump where the head head begins to slope down to her neck, a 3" x 1" irregular shaped abrasion on her left buttock, a 1" x 3/4" faint purple bruise on the outside of her left thigh, 3/8" circular bruises midway up both her shins, three oval purple bruises 1-2" in diameter on the lower quadrant of her abdomen, a circular 3/8" abrasion on her left elbow, 1/2" and 1/4" linear abrasions on her right wrist, and a circular 1/8" abrasion on the top of her right first finger.

From the above I surmise her attacker probably filled the tub with water ahead of time, maybe when she was not at home, and when she arrived home, he attacked her, made her strip her clothes off through intimidation with the nightstick, forced/drug her upstairs, manhandled her into the tub and held her head under the water. She may have received the laceration on her head by fighting to lift her head out of the water and hitting it on the faucet. She may have received the matching bruises on her shins either by being struck across the legs with a night stick, by being attacked from behind and falling forward against a stair or by being lifted into the tub while struggling against the knee high tiled wall around the tub. She probably received the circular bruises to her stomach from the end of a nightstick, the abrasions on her left buttock and elbow were probably from being dragged to the bathroom; and the rest of the injuries were probably defensive wounds. The drain may have been opened slightly by hitting the lever during the struggle, so the water drained out rather than staying in the tub as the attacker expected it to. Any water that may have gotten on the floor or other evidence of a struggle was probably cleaned up with bathtowels from the bathroom.

KS's sister said that when she arrived at KS's house DP was running around the house picking up laundry and throwing it into a laundry basket, which he later took out to his vehicle. My guess is the clothes Kathleen wore when she was attacked and the "clean-up" towels were the items DP removed from the house.

Authorities Exhume Cop's 3rd Ex-Wife's Body, Search Continues for Missing 4th Wife Stacy Peterson
Tuesday , November 13, 2007


 BOLINGBROOK, Ill. —

Authorities exhumed the body of a Chicago suburb cop's third ex-wife Tuesday to take a second look at how she died nearly four years ago after investigators reopened the case following the disappearance of his fourth wife.

A crane hoisted Savio's white casket from the Queen of Heaven Catholic Cemetery west of Chicago as a Catholic priest stood by on the family's request to watch the body being unearthed.

Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson, 53, is a suspect in the disappearance of his current wife, Stacy Peterson, 23. Stacy Peterson's family reported her missing on Oct. 29 after she didn't show up at a friend's house.

Kathleen Savio, Drew Peterson's third ex-wife, was found dead in a waterless bathtub in 2004. The coroner who reviewed Savio's death questions the autopsy, which ruled it an accidental death.

The autopsy report found that Savio had a one-inch "blunt laceration" on the left side of her scalp, her "hair is soaked with blood" and she also had abrasions or bruises on seven different places on her body.

Despite this, Dr. Bryan Mitchell — the forensic pathologist who conducted the initial autopsy — wrote in his opinion that her death "is ascribed to drowning."

The exhumation will likely review the first autopsy, conduct a toxicology report and x-rays to determine if there were any broken bones, said Katherine Ramsland, who has worked on exhumation teams in potential criminal investigations.

"They will reexamine based on a new hypothesis of what happened," Ramsland said, a forensic psychology professor at DeSales University. "They have a reason and they're now going to look at her body against this new hypothesis."

Investigators are likely reviewing Drew Peterson's marriages to determine if there is a history of domestic abuse or any behavior patterns that would indicate the possibility of foul play, Ramsland said.

"Somebody who is going to kill another person isn't just going to act out of the blue," Ramsland said. "Certain behaviors point to it."

State's Attorney James Glasgow has said evidence suggests that someone killed Savio and tried to make it look like an accident.

Documents show that Savio filed for an emergency order of protection from her husband, writing in the file that "he wants me dead and if he has to he will burn the house down just to shut me up."

The family of Stacy Peterson hopes that the exhumation of Savio's body will lead to some more answers that could help in the search for their loved one.

"We're anxious for it," said Pam Bosco, a family spokeswoman. "I think it will provide a lot of answers to the questions we have and hopefully, progress the case a little bit faster."

Stacy Peterson's family says she would have never left her two young children. Drew Peterson said his wife called him to say she was leaving him.

Charlie Savio, Kathleen Savio's nephew, was upset about media coverage Tuesday morning at his aunt's grave.

"It's one thing that her two kids lose her," Charlie Savio told FOX News. "Then, they have to lose their mother figure (Stacy Peterson). And now they have to see their mom's coffin coming out."

No family members were at the exhumation because of late notice from authorities.

This is so sad on so many different levels... Especially those little children.  My heart breaks for them.  Even though they are so young - they know something is going on, that their mommy isn't there, they know something isn't right.  God Bless those babies.

About Kathleen - I read where the autopsy said something about a "cone" in her nasal passages indicating drowning... WOuld they not take it a bit further and see if there is water in the lungs???  I saw no mention of that. 

What really gets me, is that common SENSE would make you question the original autopsy findings.  No water in the tub? hair soaked in blood?  bruises?  the cut?  no evidence of alcohol or drugs, yet a young healthy woman drowns in a bathtub?  Come on!  From pictures, that tub doesn't appear that large...

I sincerely hope there will be some answers from the exhumation.  Perhaps if answers are found they may lead to answers for Stacy.

by Greta Van Susteren

 This press release (below) just forwarded to me by OTR Producer Steph Watts (on the ground in Bolingbrook, Illinois):

[Programming note: tonight at 10pm ON THE RECORD you will hear from one of the jurors at the coroner’s inquest that concluded Kathleen Savio’s bathtub March 04 death was an “accident.”  The guest wants to respond to things said or implied by the coroner - who incidentally, as noted below, was at the exhumation….don’t miss this interview!)

Press update: Kathleen Savio exhumation

JOLIET – The body of Kathleen Savio was exhumed early today (Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2007) at Queen of Heaven Catholic Cemetery in Hillside.

Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow, Will County Coroner Patrick O’Neil and investigators from the Illinois State Police and the state’s attorney’s office were present during the exhumation.

The area surrounding the gravesite was contained to law enforcement officials and cemetery personnel during the exhumation.

Kathleen Savio’s family, however, had requested a Roman Catholic priest be present. To respect the family’s wishes, the state’s attorney’s office contacted the Rev. Chris Groh, who is chaplain for the Joliet Police Department and a trusted member of Will County’s law enforcement community. Father Groh led a short prayer service at the gravesite. He was joined by the Rev. Patrick Pollard, Archdiocesan Director of Catholic Cemeteries for the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Kathleen Savio’s remains were transported to the Will County morgue. An autopsy will be conducted by an independent medical examiner later today. Results of the autopsy are not expected to be available to investigators for several days. The autopsy results will be part of the ongoing investigation into Kathleen Savio’s death and will not be released to the public.

Autopsy planned on Savio's exhumed body
Search continues for Peterson

 By Dan Ponce
November 13, 2007 - An afternoon autopsy is planned on the exhumed body of the ex-wife of a suburban Chicago police officer whose current wife disappeared two weeks ago.

Bolingbrook Police Sergeant Drew Peterson is a suspect in the disappearance of his current wife, Stacy. Now, investigators are taking another look to see if his ex-wife's death was suspicious.

Kathleen Savio's remains arrived at the Will County Coroner's Office Monday morning for forensic testing. Investigators hope the second autopsy will reveal new information as to how she died.

At the request of Savio's family, Will County officials held a brief service before her body was removed from the grave. The Joliet Police Department chaplain led the small group in prayer. Will County State's Attorney Jim Glasgow was there along with representatives from Illinois State Police and the coroner's office.

Around 6 a.m., police arrived at the entrance of the Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Hillside. The exhumation started around 6:30 a.m. and only lasted about an hour. The remains were taken away out the back entrance in a blue county van.

Kathleen Savio, the third wife of Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson, was found dead in her bathtub in 2004. Her death was originally ruled accidental -- but last week, the Will County coroner said it should have been classified as undetermined.
Savio was in the midst of a divorce with Drew Peterson when she died. Her friends and family say she feared for her life. In a letter she wrote to the state's attorney two years before her death -- Savio wrote that Peterson would kill her.

"There are strong indications that it was a homicide, and again, that's why we're doing the exhumation because there are tests that need to be done that weren't done during the first autopsy," said James Glasgow, Will County State's Attorney.


Sgt. Peterson, who was relived of his duties with the Bolingbrook Police Department last week, has been named suspect in his wife's disappearance. Stacy's disappearance is now being called a 'potential homicide' by police.
Relatives of Stacy Peterson hope the Savio case strengthens their efforts to find her.

"I'm happy for that family that maybe they will have closure, what they thought happened all along. The truth might finally come out. And it will, you know, possibly help our case as well" said Carrie Simmons, Stacy Peterson's relative.


Peterson maintains his innocence in both the Savio and Stacy Peterson case.
Results of Savio's autopsy may take days to be returned, and Will County officials say they won't be public.

Interresting post on Greta's blog:

Comment by Margaret from Bolingbrook
November 13th, 2007 at 7:47 pm
Greta- When I was in high school we lived next door to the Petersons on Seminole Ln in Bolingbrook. At the time, Drew was a K-9 officer. Our dog, a shepherd and his dog used to run side by side along our back fences. This used to piss Drew off so bad, because it wore away the grass that he would beat his dog. It was not uncommon for my mother to be yelling at him from the back window to stop beating his dog. On one occasion his wife appeared in the front of the house crying and with a black eye. She had two teenage sons and they both were very quiet and kept to themselves. My father (also a cop) gave Drew permission to “watch” me and if he saw me on the streets or with my friends to send me home, which he did on only one occasion. He was then as you see him now on TV, Sunglasses, No smiling or reactions. Just stone cold. Subsequently, I went on to do my inernship with the Bolingbrook Police Dept. and became a Police Officer in Chicago. People knew this man was an abuser, but there is a Code when you are a cop to never tell on another cop. Police protect eachother. No one in my neighborhood, my parents included called the Police on Drew when he beat his wife or dog. Back then, you just kept quiet. Im sure that is why his wife’s death was called “accidental”…..

I thought that under the US Justice System ... a suspect in a murder investigation is arrested ... not allowed to walk around free without bail.  Also ... it does not make sense that Peterson would be handed a summons to appear ... after all he is a suspect ... just arrest him.

He is obviously a dangerous unstable person who has a collection of firearms and ... his children have not been apprehended.

What are the respective government agencies waiting for?

I feel like I am in the twilight zone.

He will not be in the NY studio in the AM and that's why I said it might be taped, OR, Matt is onsight.  Matt Lauer would have had no idea that DP would be in court tomorrow...The Today Show is early AM, so it will air before DP goes to court....jmo

Update from Greta's blog:

UPDATE at 10:53 from our Fox Files:

Illinois State Police tell Fox News they have subpoenaed Paul Peterson, the brother of Drew Peterson to compel him to appear tomorrow before the Will County Grand Jury

.Additionally, Steve Carceano, who found the body of Kathleen Savio nearly four years ago, tells Fox News that he has been summoned to testify tomorrow before the grand jury.

The grand jury usually convenes in Will County on Wednesday’s. Drew Peterson appeared last week before the grand jury, but sources say he refused to answer the majority of questions, instead pleading the 5th.

 Summary of Matt Lauer interview with DP on the Today Show:


New developments re KS:
SA exhumed KS, autopsy has been performed, evidence is consistent with "staging an accident to conceal a homocide"
Review of Stacy's disappearance, search continues
It will be several days before 2nd autopsy results are known
(per ML, DP flew to NY last night to appear on the show today)ML Watching the exhumation, I wonder what you're thinking
DP It's a shame her rest in peace had to be disturbed. I understand why they have to do it. If they think they can find something to explain why she died, they should.
ML There has been a lot of media attention on you and they are right outside your door. How are you handling that?
DP It's been harder on the older kids. The younger ones pretty well accept what has happened. I told them Mom went on an extended vacation.
ML How do you feel to know that LE consider you a suspect?
DP I think they've always considered me a suspect from day one.
ML SP asked you for a divorce two days before she disappeared. (ML read the email sent to friend by Stacy saying she was unhappy and DP was controlling and manipulative, etc.)
DP I dont' think those were her words, that's not her vocabulary. I think this is a made up email.
ML (Showed Kerrie Simons saying SP told her "if something happens to me, you need to look for me" because she was concerned something would happen to her.) What do you think about that.
DP I don't know.
ML How did you view your relationship with your missing wife?
DP In the beginning it was very romantic. But after her sister died of cancer, she lost her faith, she was on medication and seeing a psychiatrist, and she was on an emotional rollercoaster.
ML Did it ever get violent?
DP I don't believe it was ever violent.
LM Either it was or it wasn't.
DP There were a few incidents when we were fighting and I was in her face--she hated being cornered. One time she hit me in the head with a frozen steak. Once I tried throwing her in a pool at a party and she came up swinging even though it was all in jest.
ML You've told people she said she is left to be with another man.
DP She never told me she was seeing another man, or maybe she did. But I believe she is with someone else.
ML Either she did tell you that or she didn't.
DP She found another man, those were her words. She was a great mom.
ML How does a great mom leave her kids?
DP I don't' know.
ML Police say you're not cooperating.
DP I am. I've given them a full account of what happened.
ML Why haven't you taken part in search for your missing wife?
DP I'm such a media sensation right now, I believe I would hamper the search. She is gone, she's where she wants to be.
ML KS drowned in her bathtub, it looks now like it was staged to look like an accident.
DP I was one of the first people there that day. I met with KS's best friend and I was planning the next day to go into her home because I hadn't heard from her in a few days and that was unusual. Her neighbor and best friend wanted to go in that night, so we went over there and went in the house. I didn't go in the house, I stayed outside because she always accused me of things, like coming in her house and stealing things. After she was found and her friend was screaming I went in and felt her pulse, but didn't want to touch anything else.
ML I understand you received a one million dollar insurance policy after KS died?
DP That money was put into a protected account for the kids.
ML What was your relationship with KS like?
DP KS came from an abusive family. At first it was very romantic. After the kids she became very emotional. We had a very competitive relationship of "one up-man-ship"--who was smarter, who was stronger. At first she was very beautiful, exciting, a lot of fun, got along with my kids from my previous relationship. We'd go out to dinner, to shows . . .
ML Can you look me in the eye and tell me you didn't have anything to do with the death of your third wife or your missing wife?
DP I can look you in the eye and tell you that I had nothing to do with either of those incidents. I am not afraid of LE, I'm more afraid of the media.
ML You're a police officer, you know how this goes and how they build a case. Within the next day or so, you could actually be charged with something serious.
DP I expect I will.

Summary of second segment (didn't transcribe, was busy editing the above info)

DP expressed concern about the constant media attention and strongly stated he wants them to back off. When asked if he is afraid of being arrested, he responded, "I'm afraid because when I spoke with my attorneys on Monday they told me it would cost at least $250,000 to defend myself in just one of these cases. I'm here asking if any attorneys out there would be willing to take my case and help me out." DP said both KS and SP came from dysfunctional families. ML asked him how he ended up with such similar women and DP said he didn't know. DP said he talked to Geraldo the other day, invited him into his home, and while they were sitting at the kitchen table talking, Geraldo was coaching him on what he should say in his statement that Geraldo came out of the house and read. ML commented on how calm DP was in the face of what was happening in his life. DP said he was just really upset with the media and how they have portrayed him. When asked what he would say to SP if she's out there, DP laughed and smirked and said, "Call home and tell us where you are." Then at the end of the interview he said he hopes this interview has helped his case and that the media will back off, but if they turn up the heat, then he has wasted his time coming here.

I saw only a 30 second clip of his interview and you are right he is a POS.  He wants the press to leave his family alone.  They aren't bothering his family they are bothering him and know what I say tough sh!t on him.  I guess it sucks when you don't have the power anymore to scare people away and everyone of your friends are distancing themselves from you.  That says a lot.

I was somewhat shocked that Matt Lauer actually sat with him earlier.  I watched the segment this hour.   Glad Matt asked about his calm demeanor, because I was seeing the same, and that's when DP moaned about the press, which he also claims is one reason he hasn't helped search (the other reason is that he feels she's where she wants to be....gone).  DP said he thought the email was a fake.  The vocabulary & statements were not anything Stacy would use or say.  :roll: Star Jones & Al Roker discussed afterward, and Star basically said wth is he doing?  He's got 2 possible cases he can be charged with and he's on TV.  What a dumbass, POS.

I'm not convinced that DP is involved in the death of Ms. Savio. It really could be just an accident.

Her injuries do look suspicious, but according to the autopsy report, they 'could' be in line with a fall in the tub. Then there is the issue of the locksmith. DP needed a key to get in the house and didn't apparently have one. That's why he called the locksmith. Seems odd to me anyway.

Then (If I have this right) he was returning the kids from a visit. When did he kill Ms. Savio and stage the crime scene if the kids were with him? Again - seems odd to me.

I'm not on anyone's side here - just pointing out a few areas that don't seem to make any sense.

Wed Morning Note: Sgt. Drew Peterson Was Up Early This Wednesday Morning!
by Greta Van Susteren
Good Morning!

If you got up early today, you might have seen Sgt. Drew Peterson on the Today Show. He was in NYC to make the appearance on the early television show. I missed it — but will see it when I get in to work today. While I know he is not a fan of ON THE RECORD — it was our producer Steph Watts who delivered wife #3’s autopsy report and other documents to the police which started the boll rolling on investigating wife #3’s death (they did not have the documents) — I am a bit surprised. When he did not want to do our show from Illinois, we offered to fly him to NYC or DC to do ON THE RECORD but he was adamant that he did not want to because, as he told us, he wanted to be home when Stacy returns home. Of course that statement was made more than a week ago and lots has happened since then — and he may have just given up hope that she will return home. And of course he has no obligation to do our show and while I promise to be fair to him and let him talk — I understand. As an aside, I remain suspicious of him…but things are not always like they might appear. Don’t forget - runaway bride! (By the way…Sgt. Peterson will enjoy this - everyone in the media thought he was home in Illinois last night…apparently his brother was at his house and everyone was fooled thinking the man going in and out was Sgt. Peterson….I don’t know if it was a deliberate attempt to fool the media or not — if it was deliberate, yes he out foxed all last night! Since we are so closely following him and the story, I don’t blame him if he wants to slip us. I would want to do the same. )

The lock smith story was part of his alibi to show he did not have access to her house.  He was returning the kids but the other night Dr. Baden said the way the blood flowed to the front of her body showed she could have been already dead about 6 hours.  As far as the kids we don't know if they were in school or not and he picked them up after school for his visitation.  He could have also had a family member watch his kids while he committed the murder (visit to grandma's or his brother).  She had many fresh bruise on her body that was not consistent with a fall in the tub.

I think DP has a completely distorted view of the whole situation.  You don't have 4, not 1 or 2, but 4 wives terrified of you, not for a period of time, the WhOLE time.  Like a 20 year span.  Notice he is not afraid of the cops, just the media, duh ... the cops have worked well for him in the past.  

So basically all of his relationships stared out romantic and then each of his wives got emotional and went nuts?  What are the odds of that happening over & over?  He may have convinced himself, but he is the only one, imo.

Rob,
I did read somewhere that he had programmed his car opener to let himself in & out of KS's house.  I think the locksimith thing was just for his alibi as well.  I also don't think they will ever prove anything against him, probably because the only one that knows the truth or could testify is now missing .. just my thoughts ...

Little kids sleep sometimes, Rob.  Take nap in afternoon, etc.

However, why wouldn't he just leave a note for their mother to call him when she got home and think she was just away and late getting home?  What made him think he needed a locksmith and all the drama and witnesses?

I agree with ya'll - he is a POS!  I get a baaad feeling from him...I just hope that the LE is being meticulous with all this, and I bet they are to avoid bad press. Dotting all the I's and crossing all T's.

He has a history of abuse..notice he says that these women came from abusive homes and he implied they had "mental problems"  Pfffttt. 

I hope we are able to get some info from the Grand Jury Inquest.

Is he a killer? Ex-cop on missing wife, death of third
Ex-cop says wife No. 4 likely took off with a man, denies killing wife No. 3


By Mike Celizic
TODAYShow.com contributor
updated 5:55 a.m. PT, Wed., Nov. 14, 2007

As police re-examine the suspicious death of his third wife, retired Illinois police sergeant Drew Peterson tells TODAY his missing fourth wife told him she met someone and probably ran away with him.

Peterson, 53, appeared calm and determined Wednesday as he discussed reports that he is a suspect in the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, whose body was exhumed Tuesday. He told host Matt Lauer that he is not concerned about the police investigation into both cases, but is angry that the media is camped out in front of his house and has all but convicted him.

“I can look you right in the eye and tell you I had nothing to do with either of those instances,” he said, adding, “I’m not afraid of law enforcement. I’m afraid of the media.”

Peterson was still married to Kathleen Savio when he began dating Stacy, when she was 17 and much younger than him. After Savio told him she wanted a divorce and complained to relatives of alleged abuse, she was found dead in a bathtub of the couple’s Bolingbrook, Ill., home. Her death, now being re-examined, was listed as accidental drowning, even though the tub was bone-dry.

Peterson married Stacy, and the couple have two young children. Peterson said his missing wife, now 23, told him she had met another man before she disappeared on Sunday, Oct. 28. She was supposed to help family members paint a home, but never showed up.

Peterson told Lauer he understands why Illinois State Police have reopened the investigation into the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, because police often suspect spouses in untimely deaths.

“It’s a shame that her rest-in-peace has to be disturbed for something like this,” Peterson said.

Impeccably groomed and completely calm, Peterson said that he has not told his two young children by Stacy Peterson, Anthony, 4, and Lacy, 2, that their mother is missing and may be dead. When news reports about her come on the television, he said, “We usher them to another room.” Asked what he has told them, he replied, “Basically, ‘Mom’s gone on vacation.’ ”

He said the scrutiny he’s been under has been much harder on his two teenage sons by Savio.

Lauer asked Peterson whether Stacy told him she was seeing another man before she disappeared.

“She never told me she was seeing another man,” he said, but then changed that to: “Maybe she did. ‘She found somebody else,’ ” he added. “Those were her exact words.”

He said that his relationships with both Stacy Peterson and Savio were roller-coaster rides and characterized both women as emotionally unstable.

Stacy Peterson, he said, was on drugs for mood swings and had been unpredictable since the death of her sister by cancer. Other than playfully trying to throw her in the swimming pool at a gathering, he said he never hit her or abused her, contrary to claims by her family and friends.

“One time she hit me in the head with a frozen steak. I never hit her, never raised a hand to her,” he told Lauer.

When confronted with an e-mail to a family member in which she said she was in an abusive relationship, Peterson said, “I don’t think those are her words. I think that’s a made-up e-mail.”

As a policeman, he understands why he is being investigated.

“I think they’ve always considered me a suspect,” he said. “The husband always is.”

Peterson’s statements contradicted almost everything Stacy Peterson’s family told TODAY one week ago. On Nov. 7, her half sister said that the 23-year-old housewife and mother wanted out of her marriage and said she would not have left her suburban Chicago home without her kids.

“I don’t believe she would ever leave her children,” Kerry Simmons told TODAY co-host Meredith Vieira. “She loved those kids to death.”

Stacy Peterson’s family say she took up with Peterson when she was just 17. She got pregnant by him when she was 19, which is when Kathleen Savio found out about the affair and left Peterson. Shortly thereafter, she was found dead in her bathtub. Originally ruled an accidental drowning, police now think the death may have been a homicide that had been staged to look accidental. Her body has been exhumed by police for a second autopsy.

Stacy Peterson disappeared just days after asking her husband for a divorce. Police initially treated it as a missing person’s case, not searching the couple’s home until last Thursday. Her family and friends, though, are convinced that the young woman is dead and that her husband is responsible.

“She told many [people] that if anything happened to her, it was not an accident,” one relative told NBC News.

Peterson: Based on media, I'm as guilty as they come
STACY PETERSON CASE | Body of Drew Peterson's 3rd wife exhumed

November 14, 2007
BY MARK BIEGANSKI Staff Reporter

In an exclusive interview today with NBC's Matt Lauer, Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson said he believes his missing wife, Stacy, isn't dead, but has run off with another man.

"If you were me, or if you were the average citizen on the street who's read about this case or seen it on TV, would you think you're guilty?" Lauer asked.

"Based on the media coverage, I'm as guilty as they come," Drew Peterson said.
"And yet you still maintain there is no guilt," Lauer added. "You have no connection to any of these situations?"

"I think my silence has painted me guilty in the media," Drew Peterson said.

He asked reporters to, "leave my family alone."

Drew Peterson said Stacy would ask for a divorce after her sister died on a regular basis "based on her menstrual cycle."

Lauer asked Drew Peterson about an e-mail Stacy wrote to a friend a week before her disappearance, in which she said, "I am finding that the relationship I am in is controlling, manipulative and somewhat abusive ... if you could keep me in your prayers I could use some wisdom, protection and strength."

"I don't think that's her words," Drew Peterson said. "That doesn't sound like a thing that she would say. That vocabulary is certainly out of line for her. So I think this was fabricated as a lot of things have been throughout this case. This is a madeup e-mail"

Drew Peterson described his relationship with Stacy as romantic in the beginning, but that after her sister passed away, she took a "downside" with her emotions, causing her to see a psychiatrist and go on medication.

Drew Peterson denied that his relationship with Stacy was ever violent, but acknowledged several instances when the two would have verbal "in your face" confrontations.

"She hated being cornered," Drew Peterson said. "One time she hit me in the head with a frozen steak."

Peterson acknowledged that there were mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of his ex-wife, Kathleen Savio, but said he didn't know what, if anything, the exhumation of her body would accomplish.

''It's a shame her rest in peace has to be disturbed for something like this,'' he said.

Drew Peterson described his relationship with both women as troubled, saying both came from troubled homes and struggled with depression.

But he denied involvement in either case.


Drew Peterson told Lauer he was one of the first people to discover the body of Savio in her bathub. He said at the time he was the watch commander of their town when it happened and that he met with Savio's best friend because he hadn't seen Savio for several days.

Drew Peterson said the two called a locksmith to go into the house, but that he remained outside when the locksmith arrived. Lauer asked Drew Peterson why he didn't enter the house, to which he said that Savio was always accusing him of things and that she didn't want him in the house because she thought he would steal something.

"When I heard screaming, I went inside and she was dead in the bathtub," Drew Peterson said. "I felt a pulse -- I don't know if she was dead or alive. So I felt her pulse, and being a policeman, I didn't want to touch anything."


"You've said on occassion that Stacy came to you and said she was seeing someone else -- that there was another man," Lauer asked. "Is it fair to say that you believe that Stacy right now is with that other man?"

"She never told me she was seeing another man ... well, maybe she did," Drew Peterson told Lauer. "But I believe she's with someone else right now."

Drew Peterson told Lauer he believes police have always suspected him for Stacy's disappearance.

"They've always considered me a suspect. The husband always did it. It's just a title to progress their case," Drew Peterson said.


"Do you have anything you can present to me that might prove your innocence?" Lauer asked Drew Peterson.

"No," he responded.

Peterson pleaded with America's laywers to take on his case and to help him prove his innocence.

When asked what he has told the couple's children about Stacy's disappearance, Peterson said, "Mom's gone on a vacation."


Lauer asked Drew Peterson if he’s ever participated in the search for Stacy, which he indirectly responded with no.

 
“I’m such a media sensation right now,” Drew Peterson said. “If I go out and search, the search will be hampered. Why would I look for somebody I don’t believe is missing. She’s just gone. She’s where she wants to be.”


Savio's relatives hope an autopsy conducted Tuesday after her body was exhumed from a suburban cemetery will confirm their suspicions that her mysterious 2004 death was a murder, not an accident.

"I'm hoping we get all the answers we need," her niece, Melissa Doman, said hours after Savio's casket was removed from its grave at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Hillside.

They're still upset, though, that it took more than three years -- and the disappearance of another woman, 23-year-old Stacy -- to prompt Will County authorities to review Savio's death.

The 40-year-old Savio had recently divorced Drew Peterson when she was found dead in a bathtub in her home on March 1, 2004. Her death at the time was ruled an accidental drowning.

But when Stacy Peterson -- Drew Peterson's fourth wife -- vanished from their Bolingbrook home on Oct. 28, authorities decided to take another look at Savio's death.

"That's what bothers me, personally," said Doman, 28. "No one really looked at it before."

Last week, Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow announced authorities would exhume Savio's remains, saying there were "strong indications" that her death was deliberately "staged" to look like an accident. Glasgow wasn't in office when Savio died.

Her grave was opened early Tuesday with Glasgow, Will County Coroner Patrick O'Neil and Illinois State Police investigators on hand. In less than an hour, her casket was lifted out and taken to the Will County coroner's office, where a forensic pathologist conducted an autopsy later in the day.

Authorities won't have results for several days -- but said no information would be released publicly because of the pending investigations of her death and Stacy Peterson's disappearance.

'Very difficult time for them'
The 53-year-old Drew Peterson last week was formally named a suspect in Stacy's disappearance, though authorities haven't commented on whether he is a suspect in his third wife's death.

Peterson has denied playing any role in Stacy's disappearance. Reached Tuesday at his Bolingbrook home, Peterson declined to comment on the exhumation or Savio's death.

Later Tuesday, an Illinois State Police investigator delivered documents to Drew Peterson's home, though the officer wouldn't comment on what was delivered.

Peterson testified last week before a Will County grand jury. A spokesman for State's Attorney Glasgow said Peterson wasn't served with another subpoena, though he wouldn't comment further on the paperwork.

Savio's family members are anxious to learn whether the autopsy will show the mother of two was slain -- and if the examination might turn up evidence that could be used to prosecute her killer. In the months before she died, she had told authorities that she was afraid her former husband might harm her, Doman said.

"My aunt was trying to reach out, and no one listened," Doman said.

Before Savio's body was exhumed, a Roman Catholic priest offered prayers at the grave site. Savio's family had requested a priest be present during the exhumation, said the Rev. Chris Groh, a Joliet Police Department chaplain who was at the cemetery.

"It's a very difficult time for them," Groh said of Savio's relatives. "Hopefully, they'll have some answers to the questions that have been in their minds for a while. Maybe that will help them move forward."

What in hell did any of his former wives see in him?!

Personally I think he is one of those manipulative charmers. He used his position as a policeman to give the impression of a protector. 

The remarks he made about the email sent by Stacy to her friend being made up as those words aren't in her vocabulary.  What the heck?!! He is doing his best to project her as being a dimwitted mental case! 
 :smt013

Furthermore!  I believe that I heard or read that he started dating Stacy when she was 17!  She was 17 and he was in his late 40's?  Come on - wasn't he playing with jail bait right there?  What are the laws in that state?  I am sure he promised to protect her and she fell right into his trap. Oh, I hope that Stacy is found, and soon.

JUST IN!!!! Update in Sgt Peterson Story
by Greta Van Susteren

Spoke to OTR Producer Steph Watts a few seconds ago….he got his hands on information about Sgt. Peterson’s resignation. Sgt. Peterson handed it in, the Chief of Police denied the request to resign because there are internal charges pending. The Chief of Police then sent a letter to the Mayor Claar and members of the Board of Fire and Police Commission - they overruled the Chief. As a result Sgt Peterson has officially resigned (his resignation accepted), he will get his full pension and the internal charges will not be further investigated (and we don’t know now - but we may be 10pm eastern for ON THE RECORD - what those internal charges are..whether they are significant charges or insignificant charges.)

We have just learned that the Chief wrote the Mayor and Commission saying he did not want to accept Sgt Peterson’s resignation because of the internal charges - charges that would result in his termination (thus denying him his pension.). The Chief wrote that he thought the public entitled to an open hearing on this. Note that we do not know the internal charges - but it is a red flag that the Chief thought the charges would result in termination. That suggests to me that the internal charges are significant ones - but I can’t be certain without knowing the charges. We will have much more at ten pm on ON THE RECORD.

As a result Sgt Peterson has officially resigned (his resignation accepted), he will get his full pension and the internal charges will not be further investigated (and we don’t know now - but we may be 10pm eastern for ON THE RECORD - what those internal charges are..whether they are significant charges or insignificant charges.)

More on Sgt Peterson Resignation
by Greta Van Susteren
We have just learned that the Chief wrote the Mayor and Commission saying he did not want to accept Sgt Peterson’s resignation because of the internal charges - charges that would result in his termination (thus denying him his pension.). The Chief wrote that he thought the public entitled to an open hearing on this. Note that we do not know the internal charges - but it is a red flag that the Chief thought the charges would result in termination. That suggests to me that the internal charges are significant ones - but I can’t be certain without knowing the charges. We will have much more at ten pm on ON THE RECORD.

What the heck is going on with these people.  Why would they want to give this guy his pension when he clearly abused his power and doesn't deserve one cent.

Show the world how they support their murdering police force.  This guy was like an internal hit man for the police force.  I wonder how many special favors he did for people in power.

I heard the WBBM report too.
Not only is TES thinking of not coming back BUT…the guy with the sonar boat said that the ISP is no longer sharing info that might aid in the search.

Don’t think the burned bodies have anything to do with this. IMO.

As far as I know... any Pension fund that your are vested in ... you are entitled to UNLESS certain criminal activities can be proven occured on the job & maybe even realated to the your job.   :smt102
Internal investigation...to me sounds more procedural than criminal type actions.

Another Update on Sgt. Peterson’s Resignation - and A Disappointed Police Chief
by Greta Van Susteren

(http://gretawire.files.wordpress.com/2007/11/chief.jpg)
(Above pic is the Chief of Police in Bolingbrook, Illinois)

All day long I have been blogging about the acceptance of Sgt. Peterson’s resignation from the police department — the acceptance of the resignation opposed by the Chief of Police. The Chief wants to conduct a full investigation of Sgt. Peterson and can’t do it if Peterson is allowed to resign and is no longer on the police force.

I now have a copy of the letter that Chief Raymond J. McGury sent the Members of the Board of Fire and Police Commission — who overruled the Chief thus making way for the resignation of Sgt. Peterson.

Here is a quote from the Chief’s letter -

“[a]s the Chief of the Department, I deserve the opportunity to do the right thing. For these reasons, I will not accept Sgt. Peterson’s resignation. You may choose to do so. I will await your decision.”

And, as noted above, he was overruled and Sgt. Peterson resigned and there will be no internal investigation of Sgt. Peterson.

A copy of the letter was sent to Mayor Roger Claar, Village Attorney James Boan, and BPD Command Staff.

This may sound stupid, but this morning when DP was on the Today show, talking about his disdain for the media attention, I had a thought that he really liked it and might have aspirations to be on a news panel some day, like Bernie Kerik ended up doing. (tarnished NY commishoner who just plead not guilty to tax fraud) 

Denying the Chief's request, is questionable, but could have been a business like decision based on 'damned if we do and damned if we don't'.  Internal investigations are performed by a special unit, if I'm not mistaken.  Lord knows what could turn up in the process.

I have no idea why an internal investigation can NOT occur even if he resigned. They would be basically looking at the conduct of one of their former officers and any that may be in cahoots with him. That's not that complicated.

As for the resignation itself. Well, that one is easy. He's simply protecting his pension in the event he is convicted of any of the multitude of crimes / charges that could be coming his way. Let's face it - he's a suspect in one case, and a possible suspect in another. Things are not looking too good for Drew right now. Regardless, he / SP / First Wife have children and that pension (even if he is charged, convicted, and sent to the slammer) is going to pay for their upkeep. They will need clothes, education, medical, and emotional support. That's all going to cost a pretty penny.

DP is always one step ahead - now isn't he? He appears to have a good attorney to offer the advice about resigning and keeping that pension.

Couldn't have that, could he?

hmm... why would she need a million? future income?

If her children were named the primary beneficiaries there was no way he could get it.. unless he was named the guardian of the children. There could be some malfeasance here, but this is hard to prove if he is the guardian.

If her children were the contingent beneficiaries then the money would have been left to her husband - Drew. He could do whatever he wanted to do legally. Had Drew died before the children, then the children would have moved into the primary slot.

Insurance is often used for fraud. It's hard to prove in a case like this.

There are several previous posts on the insurance and the attorney representing her estate protesting and then even yet another will leaving everything to DP written on an envelop and witnessed by a couple of his friends.

Very convoluted but it was I think three smaller policies, not one big one.  Posts about it are in this thread somewhere.

Adoption v Guardian.

She could adopt them. And did. Even a 70 year old man could adopt a 40 year old man that have no relation. It's not against the law. And it's happened.

In the event of a divorce, and she was proven to be the more competent and financially stable, she could get the kids. Even if she was not more financially stable a judge could rule that DP is liable for all future support til age 18 of all the kids.

However, not too many justices are going to go against a cop with no record (that we know of)....taking into account that had SP not disappeared and simple divorced DP.. there prolly would have never been an investigation into the death of Ms. Savio.

Does DP have a motive involving divorce v disappearance? probably yes. Could be either financial or emotional.

I would have to guess that the letter Kathleen Savio wrote to the DA saying DP was going to kill her combined with Stacey saying she feared the same thing or maybe Stacey had learned something incriminating to DP over the years might have given her custody.


Speaking of those little kids, why does he STILL have them????  That is maddening!

If he is acting crazy as his friend said, they should have already been removed.

What ever happened to calling her sister or trying her on the phone.  I'll tell you what happened because he already killed her.  This guy had a lot of time to cover his tracks.

When they interviewed the daughter of wife #2 DP made a comment to his then wife "he is protecting his assets".  He had her phone tapped.  Right now he is not getting paid I think because he is suspended without pay.

sweet move Anna!!! :lol:

You're right.. the owner names the beneficiaries. The Beneficiary only needs to have an insurable interest in the owner.

If the owner and beneficiary have no insurable interest, that could be relegated as fraud.

That opens the time-line up on DP. Now he needs to account for more than one afternoon. I would say that would give him ample opportunity and time.

Anna - on the date of his resignation he was not convicted of anything. I don't like it either, but thats the way it is. He'll keep the pension. A good part of that is his actual money that he contributed. It's the law. It was just change because of a lot of teachers molesting their students and keeping their pensions. This has been pretty much changed nationally and is a states issue. Most states acted after the rash of teachers keeping the pensions after being convicted. Public employees forfeit the pension when a conviction occurs.

In some strange way, I find some things that seem to run parallel in these two cases.

She ran away.  I didn't search for her because she isn't missing.  What if she was abducted?  What if the person she is alleged to have run away with has harmed her?  Is holding her hostage?  Wouldn't you want to know?  Who is this mystery man?  Anyone name names yet?

I wish she would come forward and clear this up, let us know she's safe.  If they found her I'd kick her ass in front of her mother.

So much in common between these two, despite the differenc in age and location.

Rob,
I was thinking more about some crime he may have committed than the pension.  Doesn't seem right if he was being investigated for criminal activity or possible criminal activity.

They shouldn't be able to just drop the investigation like that just because somebody resigns if they have broken any laws or are thought to have done so.

I agree with you.  I will say, not all cops are this way.  My husband is a Lieutenant for the police department in the town we live in.  He has been a cop for almost 25 years.  I have seen LE around here take down bad cops.  My husband is the one that original people that told me about this case and he hates it that a few dirty cops make good cops look bad.  My suspicion from listening to the chief of police....Peterson was being investigated and the chief got overruled.  I am willing to bet there could still be charges from outside the department that would carry criminal charges.  IMO - getting the pension is not all bad.  His kids still have to be taken care of and when "Peterson" ends up in prison, who ever ends up taking care of the kids will be able to collect from that pension plan.  These kids are paying a huge price....a price no child should have to pay.

I agree that the pension will benefit his kids.  What bothers me is that he didn't make this move for his kids.  If he was that concerned he would have never murdered his wives.  He is using his kids as a shield.

I watched the beginning of Drew's interview on TV someone posted on photobucket.  I'm wondering why they don't "play along" with his stories and
USE THIS LINE OF QUESTIONING (which maybe they weren't allowed to ask?):

Q:  Drew - you said you felt that you & Stacy had a good marriage and maybe she felt differently, now that she is missing (or he said something like that).  Did you see any signs prior to her disappearance that she was seeing another man, as you say she is with someone else now?

Q:  Did your teenage sons say there was anything unusual the day/week before she disappeared?  Was she talking to anyone?  Did the boys see anyone?
What do the phone records show?  Do they show she was on the phone to someone else a lot?  Any money missing out of bank accounts?  Other things missing?  Suitcases packed?  First indication of anything being off?

Q:  Drew what were you doing the day of her disappearance - the whole day?

Q:  Drew, you said you had a good marriage, so was everything just fine until one day you got a call and she said "I found someone."  You say those are her 'exact words' and then she disappeared.  And based on that, you are calm and confident that she is "where she wants to be."   You believe this is completely easy to comprehend and accept that out-of-the-blue she did this, as a "good mother" and all?(!!!?)

Q:  Drew - when you say you waited outside when the neighbor went in to check on KS, because KS accused you of stealing - why do you think she would accuse you of that?

Q:  Drew - when you say Stacy didn't like being cornered/backed in a corner [I can't remember the words], did you corner her a lot? 

----------------
Also, things that don't jive:

Drew shows no sorrow or grief and upset that his wife went suddenly missing, who he said he had a good marriage with and she is a good mother.
Why isn't he saying how shocked or hurt he is? playing that his story is true.

If she did "run off" with another man, someone would have spotted them with all the media coverage.  Why isn't he addressing that, but is acting like it is the most normal thing to have one's family member disappear off the face of the earth.
Maybe disappear, but not with media coverage like this!

His comments about his young kids are especially strange.  In the summer I work at child development centers with very young children.  I can tell you that all day long they cry for their Mom (or Dad).
For him to say the younger kids can be played with and can accept their circumstances - I am getting this remark because he lived through the other kids losing their Mom and he just keeps going on like no one is missing! - life as usual!
I believe if she went missing and wasn't murdered by him, he would have said when asked how the small children are - oh they are very sad and keep asking for their Mom!   It is very hard on them.  Duh!  Of course they are sad!
It says Stacy's family (sisters) are having a hard time - what about her small children?

How about these lines:
"She's just gone."  Huh? :shock:
"She's where she wants to be."  Yeah, right! :roll:
What strange lines.
Any "good mom" of small children wants to be with her children, no matter how sexy or great this other guy is.  Can't buy his story! :2doh:

Sorry, but if your spouse disappeared, even if you were a police officer, how could you not show that you were hurt and upset!!!!  He showed nothing!

He appears unhuman to me.  I thought his eyes closed a lot like he was lying - he was looking down.  I also thought his mouth hung open when they asked about Kathleen Savio.

Welcome Aly!

I don't have time to read your entire post right now.  GRETA is covering the case tonight and Dr. Baden has some new info.  Starts in one minute.

Mark Furhman thinks the Chief is on to something regarding DP pension.  He said he wants to invesitate him.  If they allow him to resign there won't be an investigation by Internal Affairs.

A few comments ~

Given past history, has there been any discussion about DP having a girlfriend?  Might this person know something?

Are the mothers of any children born to other than the four wives disappeared or deceased?

Where did DP live prior to establishing himself in Bolingbrook?

Dr. Baden has agreed to do an independent autopsy.  They have to sort out the other legal issues.

I'm glad Dr. Baden may do another autopsy.

I'm going to miss the legal panel.  Let me know what they think about Drew talking.

Ted Williams said if she was with another man he would have known who this other man was.  Her cell phone records would tell all.

Michael Cardoza doesn't think going on the air was a very smart thing to do.

Bernie Grimm thinks he did well.

Greta said she thought Matt's questions were riveting.  She couldn't keep her eyes off him.  Bernie of course made fun of Matt.

I am very bothered by this guy who found DP's wife in the tub.  Something isn't right.  Why the hell is DP calling him after his interview and asking him how did he think he did.  I get a strange feeling this guy is hiding something.

Ted I think it was also said that she would not be depressed if she ran off with another man and DP said she was depresssed.  She would be happy.  I tend to agree with this.

WG,
DP has always seemed to have another one lined up so I do wonder if he has a new girlfriend himself.  He married Stacey seven days after the previous divorce was final and they already had a child.

He is saying he came home from work and Drew stopped him in the street while he was in his police car.  What I am wondering is if this guy actually helped Drew get in her home.  If I am correct this guy is a locksmith.  He is painting Drew as a saint.  Drew's good friend Mims is keeping away from Drew because he is afraid of him.

Yes, and he tried to say KS hair was not soaked with blood when the autopsy said it was.  She had black hair so how would one tell just by looking?

Also wouldn't blood smudges have come off a tub filled with water?  Know what I mean, just sort of soaked off or never stuck to the sides where water was?  Something odd about all of that.

You do know some family members claimed to have found her!  I believe it was Kathleens sister and nephew?  Why would this guy claim to have found her?  I don't believe they would make that up.  He sounds like he has another agenda.

From Nancy Grace transcripts..11/8/2007

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: How in the world did he get away with dating a 17-year-old girl? It is illegal in Illinois. If an 18-year-old boy is caught having sex with a 17-year-old girl, he is arrested and then has to register a sex offender. How did he get away with it?

LALAMA: That`s a good question. But Joe Hosey from "The Herald News," my understanding is he claims he went to the department, said, I have a 17-year-old girlfriend, and they said, No problem, right?

JOE HOSEY, "HERALD NEWS": I don`t think he necessarily went to the department. The department found out about it, and they went to the state`s attorney`s office, he says, and he was given an opinion that it was OK. The problem -- she was 17, he was 47. That`s legal unless he`s in a position of authority. The department was saying as a police officer, he`s in a position of authority, but apparently, the state`s attorney`s office felt otherwise.
      ------------------------------------------------------------------



Seems like the States Attorney's office didn't do their job on this one. They had reason to look at him on two separate occasions!

My thought also,SAN  DP calling this guy instead of a family member to open the door, was his back up plan.
DP knew his wife was dead( IMO) and he needed someone else to discover her dead body, not himself.
DP set this guy up.

This guy stated that he wasn't in contact that much with DP and that their kids went to school together.  He said he went over Drew's house a couple of times since wife #3 died.  Now all of a sudden they are best friends and he is speaking to Drew a few times a day.  My question is WHY?  Drew's best friend no longer believes him and others are keeping their distance.  Common sense would tell you that Drew is a murderer and this guy is putting his life and family at risk by talking to this murderer.  I would want him far away from my family.  JMO.

Bodies Found At Excavation Site
Posted: Thursday, 15 November 2007 9:08AM

LEMONT, Ill. (WBBM) -- The Cook County Sheriff's department has confirmed that two bodies have been found in the unincorporated Lemont area - near the DuPage County line.

WBBM's Steve MIlller reports.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Penny Mateck says about 7:3o a.m., a construction crew found the bodies near Route 83 and Jeans Road.

Workers were on the scene - in the process of paving a 9-and-a-half mile bike path just west of Highway 83.

Those workers tell Newsradio 780 the two bodies were found on the bike path near some paving equipment.

More than one of those workers says the bodies may be that of a woman and a child, wrapped in blankets.

That is not confirmed yet by the sheriff's office.

Sheriff's department spokeswoman Penny Mateck says evidence technicians are on the scene.

At Least 1 Body Found In Suburban Excavation Site
Sheriff's Police, Medical Examiner On Scene
Reporting Kris Habermehl

LEMONT TOWNSHIP, Ill. (CBS) ¯ At least one and possibly two sets of human remains have been found at an excavation site in southwest suburban Cook County between Burr Ridge and Lemont.

The body or bodies were discovered at the site just off Route 83 and Archer Avenue, in the river basin between the Sanitary and Ship Canal and the Des Plaines River.

The remains were covered in sheets and blankets, and it was not learned if that happened before or after the people died. It appeared also that one set of remains was bound by either cords or rope.

There was no indication of the identification of the dead, or how the person or people died.

Cook County sheriff's police detectives and county Medical Examiner's office investigators were on the scene as of 8:30 a.m. They were examining tire tracks and other trace evidence near the scene and taking photographs.

The Medical Examiner's office would only confirm that one body had been found.

There was no immediate evidence that the bodies found were related to any current missing persons cases.

Is Drew in denial - or hiding something?
http://www.suburbanchicagonews.com/...RSON_S1.article

November 15, 2007
By Jennifer Golz Staff writer
Drew Peterson appeared on NBC's "Today" show to clarify misconceptions about himself he believes the media has created.

But Naperville-based psychologist Laura Faynor-Ciha says the interview left her with more questions than answers. "He sounded disconnected from the situation in an overall sort of way, and what does that mean?" she said. "Is he separating himself from the pain and loss of family or from something he did wrong? "The interview didn't clarify that for me."

Peterson granted his first national on-camera interview to Matt Lauer on Wednesday in New York. He spoke about his marriages to his third and fourth wives: the deceased Kathleen Savio, and missing Stacy Peterson, whose disappearance is as mysterious as the death of her predecessor. Peterson, 53, has been named a suspect in the Illinois State Police's investigation into the possible homicide of the 23-year-old Bolingbrook mother of two, who was last seen Oct. 28, two days after she reportedly told her cop husband she wanted a divorce.

"Stacy would ask me for a divorce after her sister died on a regular basis...it was based on her menstrual cycle," Peterson said told Lauer. "He certainly seems to give women's hormones a lot of power," said Susan Ahmari, a psychiatrist with Linden Oaks Hospital at Edward. "But I'm not sure hormones are so erratic for women so frequently. "I think it's something people joke about," she said. "Even women joke about PMS affecting their moods if they're irritable, but for it really to affect women's behavior in a significant way is very uncommon." Assuming Peterson was correct in his testament to Stacy's mood swings, it would have been even more uncommon for him to have married two women affected by the hormones so much that it resulted in the demise of each marriage.

Peterson's third wife, Savio, 40, was found dead March 1, 2004, in a waterless bathtub of the Bolingbrook home she once shared with her then ex-husband. Although the death was ruled an accidental drowning at the time, the case has been re-opened by the Will County state's attorney and her body was exhumed earlier this week for further forensic testing. During the interview, Peterson described his relationship with both Savio and Stacy in similar manners. "In the beginning it was very romantic," he said of both wives, but later went on to call each relationship "an emotional roller coaster." "At first it was very romantic, until she had children," Peterson said of Savio. "Hormones kicked in and again it was an emotional roller coaster."

Faynor-Ciha said Peterson is not the first and won't be the last husband to complain about his wife's hormones. "But not every man who complains about his wife's hormones has a wife who goes missing or who is mysteriously found dead in the bathtub," she said. She said Peterson is distancing himself from his relationship with both women, so much that he's also distancing himself from the children he fathered with each. "It's when our children were born, not 'her children'" she said. "It sounds like the children and hormones have gotten in the way of him staying connected in those relationships." Peterson told Lauer he hasn't told the children he shares with Stacy that their mother is missing, instead saying she's "on vacation."

Both mental health professionals noted Peterson's detachment and lack of emotions during the interview. "I think the overall tone of his interview is generally way removed - removed from responsibility about what could have happened to her (Stacy)," Faynor-Ciha said. The denial could be a coping mechanism, or it could be something else. "We don't know if the source of denial is that he has done something wrong and he's covering it up, or is he not wanting to deal with the fact that he over-reacted and pushed things too far in the relationship," Faynor-Ciha said.

When confronted with the e-mail Stacy wrote to a friend that described her relationship with her husband as "abusive," Peterson denied they were written by his wife and insisted they were fabricated. Peterson seemed to fumble when asked by the morning news anchor about his claims of Stacy having run off with another man. "She never told me she was seeing another man," Peterson told Lauer, and then just as quickly changed his response to, "Well maybe she did. She 'found somebody else,' that was her exact words."

Even if Stacy was depressed, it's not enough cause for Ahmari to believe she would run off without another word to family and friends. "Just because you're depressed doesn't mean you would be completely irrational and impulsive," she said.

2 bodies found near Lemont
Tribune staff report

9:35 AM CST, November 15, 2007

 
 
Two bodies have been found near southwest suburban Lemont, and the Cook County medical examiner's office sent personnel to the scene.

The discovery was made early this morning near Jeans Road and Illinois Highway 83 near the Des Plaines River and the Chicago Sanitary & Ship Canal, according to police officials. The area is near the Cook-DuPage border.

Helicopter footage from the site showed the remains bound and wrapped in white sheets. A Lemont village official said the police chief was notified by officials that the body of a man and a woman were found at the site.

Cook County sheriff's officials were on scene this morning, but the department spokeswoman could not immediately provide information.

Stacy Peterson wasn't the type to date around. With the exception of her husband, whom she met when she was 17 and married when she was the 19-year-old mother of his fifth child, she only had one serious boyfriend as a Romeoville High School student. That boyfriend, Ralph Chira, talked about her Wednesday. He discussed his surprise when she started dating Drew Peterson, a man 30 years her senior, how Peterson proposed to Stacy two years before they married, and how Chira's experiences with Stacy don't jibe with Drew Peterson's statements on the "Today" show. Drew Peterson reiterated Wednesday his wife left him for another man. State Police are calling Drew Peterson a suspect in a possible homicide investigation.

A high school psychology teacher paired Chira with Stacy for a class assignment that involved her walking him around the school blindfolded. He bumped into a railing on a second-floor balcony. She grabbed his arm, nervous he would fall. "She was about to cry," said Chira, now 26 and the manager of a Meijer meat department. "She was so heartfelt with everything she does. She was just really concerned." The chance encounter spurred a three-year romance that included two proms, dinners out and the first serious romantic relationship for both.

Chira said while he knew he wouldn't go to college, Stacy started at Joliet Junior College right after graduating from high school. She was studying nursing there before disappearing Oct. 28. Though he said they were both falling in love for the first time, the pair never discussed starting a family. The only discussions involving children were how not to have them, he said. In 2001, Chira and Stacy broke up after he said he started spending more time with his friends. Weeks later, she told him she met Drew Peterson. "She told me he was older, a Bolingbrook police officer," Chira said. "She worked overnight [at a hotel], and I guess he would come in there and make her feel safe."

Soon thereafter, Chira said she told him Drew Peterson had asked her to marry him, though he was married to Kathleen Savio. Stacy told Chira she said yes. She never mentioned Savio, who divorced Peterson in 2003 and was found dead in a bathtub in 2004. Stacy and Drew Peterson married after his divorce in 2003 and the birth of their son.

Chira said he saw Stacy frequently shopping at Meijer. He said he saw no outward signs of the depression or moodiness Drew Peterson spoke of on "Today." Nor did he remember any unusual behavior associated with her menstrual cycle. Peterson claimed Wednesday she would ask him for a divorce when she got her period. "She seemed happy," Chira said of the last time he saw her, about six weeks ago. Unlike Drew Peterson, he has participated in searches for her

Body language experts: 'Something doesn't smell right'

http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/...-body15.article

November 15, 2007
BY SHAMUS TOOMEY Staff Reporter/stoomey@suntimes.com

NBC's Matt Lauer told Drew Peterson he seemed "extraordinarily calm and collected." Body language experts aren't so sure. After watching the interview, Lillian Glass said Peterson's hard swallowing, clenched jaw, rigid posture, shoulder movements and more left her unconvinced about what Peterson told Lauer.

Another expert, Kevin Hogan, said Peterson's rapid eye blinking could indicate nervousness -- or deception. Glass, also a communication psychologist, took issue with what Peterson said and how he said it, including focusing on himself more than his missing wife. "When you look at all of those, your gut reaction is, something doesn't smell right," Glass said. Sitting rigid in his chair suggested Peterson was trying to control himself, she said. Lifting his shoulders during answers suggested he wasn't telling the truth, she said. Hogan found it odd that Peterson laughed after asking his wife to "come home." "Is he guilty of the disappearance, I don't know," Hogan said. "Is he acting out of character for a normal person, very much so."

Witnesses go to Peterson grand jury
Officer on TV show as Will panel meets


http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/...hi_tab01_layout

As a Will County grand jury called in witnesses connected to Sgt. Drew Peterson on Wednesday, Bolingbrook police dealt with the likelihood they will not be able to hold him accountable for possible departmental violations because he quit.

Also on Wednesday, Peterson's appearance on a network TV morning show to discuss the disappearance of his wife, Stacy, and the mysterious death of his ex-wife fueled more turmoil in his Bolingbrook neighborhood.

Shortly after 1:30 p.m. in downtown Joliet, Steve Carcerano, 39—the neighbor who discovered the body of Peterson's ex-wife Kathleen Savio in her bathtub in 2004—walked into the Will County Court annex where the grand jury was convened. When he left hours later, Carcerano said he did not testify but expected to return next week. Also summoned to the grand jury was Bolingbrook Police Officer Alex Morelli, whom sources describe as a close friend of Drew Peterson. A person by that name signed as a witness to the 1997 will of Savio and Peterson. Morelli declined to comment on whether he testified. Later, he could not be reached for comment on whether it was he who signed the will.

Wife #3 and Wife #4 Had a PHYSICAL Confrontation….
by Greta Van Susteren

Well….divorces are rarely “pretty” …and emotions run very wild (understandably) especially when someone cheats in a marriage or a relationship….the Sgt Drew Peterson/Kathleen Savio/Stacy Peterson apparently was no different many of these terrible situations…

….Things got so bad among the 3 of them that there were hospital visits…..and at least one involved the women (read the bottom part of the article for details about allegations of a physical confrontation between Kathleen Savio (#3) and Stacy Peterson (#4)….and yes, never dull…

Cop Denies Involvement in Wife's Death
By DON BABWIN – 16 hours ago

ROMEOVILLE, Ill. (AP) — Nobody listened when Kathleen Savio said she was afraid of her husband. But now, three years after she was found dead in a bathtub in what was ruled an accidental drowning, authorities are paying close attention.

They suspect she was killed. But that theory did not dawn on them until her husband came under suspicion in the recent disappearance and possible murder of his new wife.

Drew Peterson, a former police office in suburban Bolingbrook, denies any role in his wife's disappearance, saying she told him she was leaving him for another man.

Stacy Peterson, 23, was reported missing Oct. 29, the day after failing to show up to help her sister paint a house. She was 17 when she began dating Peterson. He was 47 and still married to Savio.

Peterson believes his wife has left him for another man, and said he has no plans to look for her because he thinks she left willfully.

"Why would I look for somebody who I don't believe is missing? She's just gone. She's where she wants to be," Peterson told NBC's "Today" show.

Peterson's troubles began during his marriage to Savio, who died in 2004.

She left behind a trail of clues about the couple's stormy marriage, including an order of protection she filed in 2002 after Peterson allegedly knocked her down, ripped a necklace off her and left marks on her body. Savio wrote in the order that she feared Peterson could kill her.

"He wants me dead, and if he has to, he will burn the house down just to shut me up," she wrote.

A coroner's report includes testimony from Savio's sister, who said Savio warned relatives that if she died, it may look like an accident, but it would not be.

Authorities have not said Peterson, now 53, is a suspect in Savio's death. But they have reviewed autopsy photos, police reports, court documents and even exhumed her body as they point the finger at Peterson in Stacy Peterson's disappearance.

"I would say that right now Drew Peterson has gone from being a person of interest to clearly being a suspect," in his fourth wife's disappearance, Illinois State Police Capt. Carl Dobrich said last week.

Peterson downplayed any similarities between the two cases, but said his relationships with both women were troubled. Both suffered from emotional problems, he said. He denied having anything to do with the two cases.

"I can look right in your eye and say I had nothing to do with either of those incidents," he told NBC.

Authorities have been tightlipped about the specifics of their investigation, including what they hope to learn from examining Savio's body. Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow said some tests that should have been conducted on Savio's remains never were.

In the final days of her marriage, Savio traded battery allegations with her husband, who resigned from the police department this week.

Drew Peterson twice convinced the state's attorney's office to bring battery charges against his wife, but she was acquitted both times. Peterson never was charged, although Bolingbrook police have said officers investigated 18 domestic calls involving the couple.

Savio's family suspects police were trying to protect one of their own.

"She called it the 'good old boys club,'" said Charlie Doman, Savio's nephew. "Cops taking care of cops is what it was."

Among the documents Savio's family has kept for years is a copy of a letter they say she sent to an assistant state's attorney in Will County, claiming Peterson had beaten her several times, but police declined to file reports.

They also have a report from a suburban Chicago hospital that Savio visited in 2002 for treatment of a sprained wrist after what she said was a confrontation with Peterson. The report includes a notation by someone, possibly her doctor, that Savio said her husband was a Bolingbrook police officer and that the police would not take a report on the incident.

Documents relating to Savio's domestic battery arrests are gone. According to her family, she had the arrests expunged from her record. A spokesman for the Will County state's attorney's office said authorities have found little paperwork on the arrests, and it is unclear who Savio was accused of attacking.

But Savio's family said that, in one of the cases, the alleged victim was Stacy Peterson. Doman said Stacy Peterson became pregnant while Drew Peterson was still married to Savio.

An emergency room report provided to The Associated Press by the family contains a notation that Savio was injured during a confrontation involving someone named Stacy. Savio, her family said, was arrested after the two women argued.

"He staged it to make it look like a battery," said Pamela Bosco, a close friend of Stacy Peterson's family.

Savio's family is relieved to see authorities investigating their long-held suspicions about Peterson.

"Finally, they're paying attention," Doman said. "They're looking at everything that they had there already."

The Illinois State Patrol Is Asking The St. Louis County Search Squad For Help
YouNewsTV™
Story Published: Nov 13, 2007 at 7:18 PM EST

Story Updated: Nov 13, 2007 at 7:18 PM EST

By KBJR News 1

Watch the story

The St. Louis County search and rescue squad has been called to assist in one of the most talked about cases in the country today.
23–year–old Stacy Peterson of Illinois has been missing for over two weeks.

The Illinois State Patrol contacted the St. Louis County Rescue Squad due to its expertise and advanced equipment.

"We've been very successful in search efforts here in St. Louis County and in Northeastern MN and I think the authorities in Illinois are aware of our track record," said St. Louis County Sheriff Ross Litman.

Stacy Peterson's sister has said she believes Stacy was stalked by her husband Drew Peterson who is a sergeant in the Bolingbrook, Illinois police department.

Stacy was last seen on October 28th.

Her car was found near a pond in Bollingbrook. Authorities believe her body may be in that pond. (I think this may be incorrect info)

Suspicion was cast on Drew Peterson who was in the process of a divorce from Stacy.

Drew has been married three times. One of his former wives was found dead in a bathtub in 2004. (we know this is incorrect, he's been married 4 times)

That death was initially ruled accidental but Stacy's disappearance has re–opened the case.

Saint Louis County's expertise is in underwater searches.

The squad has both a remotely operated underwater vehicle and a sonar scanner and has become proficient in dangerous underwater searches.

"Any time you put a dive team under water or ice you are taking a risk. Diving is dangerous," said St. Louis County Sheriff Ross Litman.

The squad plans to stay in Illinois for the remainder of the week.

In the wake of Stacy's disappearance, Peterson's first wife's body was exhumed today for further investigation.

JUST IN: Email from OTR Producer Steph Watts
by Greta Van Susteren


OTR Producer has been on the ground in Bolingbrook, Illinois since almost the day Sgt. Peterson’s wife Stacy vanished…he just sent me this email (and in my effort to give you the behind the scenes, I am posting his email to me):

 

From: Watts, Stephen
To: Van Susteren, Greta
Sent: Thu Nov 15 11:48:34 2007
Subject: Thursday Not Good News From Bolingbrook

Its bitter cold today in Bolingbrook and that’s not good news for searchers as most of their efforts are focused on bodies of waters.  Its been almost 20 days since Stacy Peterson went missing. Once the cold weather takes hold, freezing the lakes and ponds and snow begins to accumulate it will push the search for stacy off to the spring. This leaves little hope for  investigators, stacys family and everyone involved.

2 adult male bodies found near Lemont
By Gerry Smith

Tribune staff reporter

10:52 AM CST, November 15, 2007

 The bodies of two adult males were found early today in a forest preserve in unincorporated Cook County, Sheriff Tom Dart said this morning.

The bodies were found near southwest suburban Lemont.

The discovery was made early this morning near a newly paved bicycle path. The site is near Jeans Road and Illinois Highway 83 near the Des Plaines River and the Chicago Sanitary & Ship Canal, according to police officials. The area is near the Cook-DuPage border.

Helicopter footage from the site showed the remains bound and wrapped in white sheets.

An earlier report identified the bodies as belonging to a male and a female.

Authorities erected a white tent over the bodies.

So if a cop commits a crime or does something awful, all he has to do is resign and he is off the hook?

That's almost as good as no body/no case!

Not buying it.

I agree with you.  I will say, not all cops are this way.  My husband is a Lieutenant for the police department in the town we live in.  He has been a cop for almost 25 years.  I have seen LE around here take down bad cops.  My husband is the one that original people that told me about this case and he hates it that a few dirty cops make good cops look bad.  My suspicion from listening to the chief of police....Peterson was being investigated and the chief got overruled.  I am willing to bet there could still be charges from outside the department that would carry criminal charges.  IMO - getting the pension is not all bad.  His kids still have to be taken care of and when "Peterson" ends up in prison, who ever ends up taking care of the kids will be able to collect from that pension plan.  These kids are paying a huge price....a price no child should have to pay.  

Thanks
Carolyn

I agree that the pension will benefit his kids.  What bothers me is that he didn't make this move for his kids.  If he was that concerned he would have never murdered his wives.  He is using his kids as a shield.

I agree with that, IMO - this man (if you can call him that) does not really care about anyone or anything except himself.  I think that includes his kids.  The only reason I think it is a good thing is that my guess is at some point this guy will either end up in prison, on the run, or killing himself (most cops will choose death before prison). I just think the pension is important for the kids as some point as whomever ends up caring for the kids will need the financial assistance that they could get by petitioning the courts to garnish the pension.  If there is not pension what so ever, the kids are out of luck unless he is dead and the kids can collect social security.

Thanks
Carolyn

You never know when you will learn that additional piece of information that solves the entire matter. It can be tedious and it often requires to re-investigate and re-investigate and re-investigate…etc.

It also requires re-interviewing people….helping people remember things…..helping to trigger their memories.

The girlfriend.  In a previous conversation Greta had with Ric, Ric mentioned that years ago Drew was dating a girl, I think her name was Monica.  Monica's brother didn't approve of Drew dating her.  The brother was found hanged in his garage and it was ruled a suicide.  Friends didn't think he would kill himself.  One of the first officers on the scene was Drew.  This was many years ago, I think before marriage #3.

Say officer under scrutiny for fate of last two wives acting inappropriately
By Mike Celizic

Drew Peterson’s behavior and words during interviews with TODAY and NBC News did not match up with what would be expected from someone whose wife had abandoned him and his children for another man, two analysts said Thursday.

Body language expert Tonya Reiman and NBC analyst and former FBI profiler Clint Van Zandt reviewed the tapes of Peterson talking exclusively to TODAY’s Matt Lauer on Wednesday and saw a man sitting back with legs spread wide in a position of arrogance. They said they also saw a man who showed no anger or frustration or concern for his children, who have been left without a mother since the Oct. 28 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy.

“Just indifference, pure indifference,” Reiman told Lauer after analyzing the tape. “[Peterson’s] wife is missing, and you notice that there’s really nothing going on with his expressions. You don’t see any remorse, you don’t see any anger, frustration.”

She and Van Zandt were most struck by Peterson’s response when Lauer asked what he’d say to his missing wife.

“Come home,” the former Bolingbrook, Ill., police sergeant had responded with a laugh and a shrug. “Tell people where you are. That’s all I can say.”

“Where’s the ‘I’m-in-trouble-right-now-’cause-you’re-missing’?” Reiman wondered. “Where’s the anger, where’s the frustration? I would be pleading as opposed to laughing.”

Van Zandt wondered why Peterson showed no apparent concern for his children. He has two teenage sons from his third marriage to Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in her bathtub four years ago while she was negotiating a divorce from Peterson.

Originally ruled an accidental drowning, the investigation into her death has been reopened after Stacy Peterson disappeared. He also has two sons, ages 4 and 2, by Stacy Peterson.

A person worried about those children, Van Zandt said, would have begged a missing spouse to at least send a message to those children.

“They’re scared to death, they’re frightened, they’re not sleeping at night. Do this for the sake of the children. I’ll give you the divorce tomorrow,” would have been the expected response, Van Zandt said.


Finally, some emotion
In a later interview on Wednesday with NBC News, Peterson had gotten emotional about his children, but only in response to a question about what would happen to them if he is charged and found guilty with killing either Savio or Stacy Peterson.

He briefly choked up when saying, “If my kids are OK and provided with, I’m OK with anything that comes. If you’re trying to get me to cry, you’re close.” 

Van Zandt also found it difficult to believe that the 53-year-old Peterson, a cop for 30 years, would be unable to provide any evidence that his 23-year-old wife of four years had, as he claims, found another man. He said Peterson’s responses made little sense in the context of what has been reported about the couple’s troubled marriage.

“This is a guy, we’re told, who wouldn’t leave his wife alone. He followed her to college, he monitored her cell phones, he knew who she saw socially,” he said. “Number one, he ought to be able to say, ‘Here’s her cell phone records. Here’s the name of her boyfriend.’ Number two, he can’t give us one name, one example of who this mysterious person she may have run off with is.”

Then there’s the question of opportunity, Van Zandt continued, saying, “Nobody yet has raised a hand and said, ‘This woman who’s raising four children, going to college, keeping a household, being followed everywhere by her almost stalkerlike husband, would have time to develop a boyfriend.’”

Stacy Peterson’s uncle, Kyle Toutges, confirmed that observation in a separate interview on Thursday from Chicago with TODAY’s Meredith Vieira.

“None of us knew of another man,” he said, speaking for her family. “Her husband, Drew, was on top of her all the time, there was no way she had time to be with another man. He knew where she was every minute.”

Asked for his reaction to Peterson’s laughing request to his wife to come home, Toutges said, “He knew where she was, and he knew she ain’t coming home, that’s what it said to me.”

Anna,
 Well first this Rick was all buddy buffy with Drew.. defended him, then turns aroud and is scared shitless of him.
 In the convo with Greta.. she asks when is the last time you have spoken to Drew?  Well before Rick said he wasn't accepting calls from him .. and then in this convo he says a day or so ago he missed a call from him??  :smt102 Sooo.. IMO made it sound like he maybe would have taken the call if he wasnt busy?  And why on earth. if this man is so scared shitless of DP.. would he be talking to media and planning interviews on tv? Just seems strange IMO. Do I make any sense?  lol

I wonder how many more sleletons in this creep's closet?

I believe he is arrogant because he knows they won't find Stacy. Wondered if that had something to do with TES not going back. Just a thought.

Yes, but if you are scared of some psycho like DP, going very high profile and public can be your best defense.  They can't off you if everybody is looking.  Would be much too obvious.  I think he is scared of DP because of the way he was rolling his eyes in TV interview with Greta almost like a hostage trying to indicate DP was in the next room or something, like a message for help?

So if I were really scared, I'd be saying I was and that I thought this guy was after me, etc. as a form of preventing him from making good on any threats, etc.

Does that make any sense?

We have just learned that yes, Dr. Baden, will be doing an autopsy on Kathleen Savio — Sgt. Drew Peterson’s wife #3 who has been exhumed. He is doing it on behalf of her family — not on behalf of the prosecutor. The prosecutor has his own medical examiner doing one. The question, as you know, is the cause and manner of death. Was her death an accident? or a homicide? We know that there was some leaking into the casket over the years so there will be a great challenge for the medical examiners than if the casket had been perfectly sealed….more information to come…

Greta will be covering the case in about 20 minutes.

Being reported DP is on MSNBC - this is some of what he said (as posted by someone on Greta's blog:


MSNBC just had a clip of DP and I quote “she was spoiled!” “she wanted a boob job, she got one, she wanted a tummy tuck, she got one, hair removal, blah, blah blah….she wanted anything that kept her as the center of attention! “And I gave it to her, I pampered her, it’s my fault she WAS spoiled!” All of this said in the PAST tense!! He said “because she’s not with me now” is why I talk about her in the past when Matt L. asked him about it.

Once again Steve Carcerano is providing a blow by blow detail of a fight between Kathleen and Stacy.  Every time this guy seems to be around to provide detail to certain incidents.  This guy is FOS and he is disputing stuff that Drew Peterson did to his wife.  Once again he was on the phone with Drew today.

Mark Fuhrman said DP is a stalker and he victimizes himself when things go wrong.

Mark Fuhrman said the one statement they missed on the today show of what Drew said and he caught was that Drew said "If they do find evidence it was fabricated."

Jeanine Pirro said she would bet her house that this is a homicide.

Michael Cardoza said it may be criminal but good luck that Peterson did it.

Bernie Grimm said put me on the deed to your house.

Jeanine Pirro said know what Peterson did he said set it up that somebody went into the house.

I'm glad they are doing an autopsy on KS - a few years late.

I think this sounds like a story on crime library - like someone posted that it was like the black widow male version.  And someone else said "death is following him."   That is how they finally caught some of the murderers on crimelibrary, is that everyone around them kept dying!  (or disappearing).

I hope they will look into the death of DP's former girlfriend Monica's brother who didn't like DP and ended up being found hanging in his garage and DP was the one who found him.  If this is a true story, someone needs to check out this death also! :silent:

I agreed with the psychologist that DP was disconnected in his interview - unfeeling and cold and showed no upset and confusion of his supposed story that his wife walked out on him.
Of the fact he spied on SP constantly, yet has no idea who she left with.
The story is bogus about her leaving with another man.

The comment about DP laughing when he requested his wife to come home (I didn't see it) is freeeeeeaky!!!!!  And "Toutges" (not sure who that is) saying, "He knew where she was, and he knew she ain't coming home, thats what is said to me."  That is chilling!!! :shock:

I think they need to drive him crazy by following him constantly until he cracks.  I have heard of murder cases like that - its possible.  Just don't let him alone - keep on it and hope he cracks. 
He has talked out of both sides of his mouth and contradicted himself so many times. 

I haven't heard him say anything kind or loving about someone who was his wife.  Other than she was a good mom.  A lot of crap and bad talk about SP.  Also KS sister said he would always talk KS down in front of the boys too.

I also find it strange he groups the two women together saying they were both emotionally disturbed and they were both from bad homes.

He's a women user and when they have kids and are no longer romantic and when they figure out he is mean and controlling and no longer is wearing his nice mask -he disposes of the women.

Yes, it is very TELLING that he is speaking of SP in the past tense!!!!
OMG
Unbelievable officer of the law and husband and father.

Peterson's second wife tells her story
She recalls he threatened to kill her, make it look like an accident

By Erika Slife

Tribune staff reporter

11:16 PM CST, November 15, 2007

 
For the last two weeks, Vicki Connolly has watched in disbelief and with conflicting emotions as controversy swirls around her ex-husband, Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson.

She doesn't know whether he had anything to do with the disappearance of his current wife, Stacy Peterson, who has been missing since Oct. 28, or the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, who died mysteriously in 2004.

But in the first interview granted by one of his ex-wives since Stacy's disappearance, Connolly, 48, said Thursday that during their marriage an increasingly controlling Peterson told her he could kill her and make it look like an accident. While she couldn't believe he would ever do it, something prompted her to confide in Bolingbrook police officers who she considered friends. "So they would know he said these things to me," she said.

She said Peterson would hit her but not hard enough to go to the hospital, and not often enough for her to expect it. It made it worse, she said, that she never knew it was coming. "It was mind games; it was head games," she said.

Peterson, who did not return phone calls Thursday, has denied being abusive to Savio or Stacy Peterson.

Police have described Peterson, 53, as a suspect in 23-year-old Stacy's disappearance and are reinvestigating Savio's death. Will County State's Atty. James Glasgow said her death appeared to have been staged as an accident. Savio's body was exhumed Tuesday.

Peterson, who is not charged with any crimes, has denied involvement in both cases.

"He has the experience, the knowledge, the means, and the mind to do that," she said, her voice trailing off. "That's all I've thought about. . . . I'm still working through it. I'll be honest."

This much Connolly knows: She was married to Peterson for 10 years, beginning in 1982. They raised each other's children from previous marriages. They operated a bar together. She stuck by him through his infidelities and during legal problems in the 1980s—until she finally "caught him cheating on me with someone with my own eyeballs."

"The thing with Drew Peterson, and I'm sure if [Savio and Stacy Peterson] were here to comment they would say the same thing, when it was good, it was wonderful, it was great," Connolly said. "But when it was bad, it was really bad."

She met Peterson in a Bolingbrook bar in the early 1980s. She was there with her friends to see a favorite band.

"This man, just oozing of confidence, he wanted to dance with me and buy my girlfriends drinks," she recalled. "And he set his eyes on me and it was like he was going to get me. He couldn't get me to move in with him fast enough."

At the time, she was married, a relationship that was already ending. She said it was only three or four months after her divorce that she moved in with Peterson. He was so persistent, she said.

"He thought he took me away to a better life. He definitely felt that way. It's ironic," she said. "In his eyes, he did believe that."

It's a pattern Peterson continued in his next two relationships, she said.

Several days after his wife's disappearance, Peterson told the Tribune that when he met Stacy, he had an "uncontrollable need to take care of her." On Wednesday, Peterson told the "Today" show that both Stacy and Kathleen came from troubled homes.

Henry Savio, Kathleen's older brother, disputed that assertion. "No, we're OK," he said. "She was a very strong woman." He added that Kathleen owned her own condo and worked as an accountant.

Connolly said she also was well off when she met Peterson. She had a steady job at a bank and drove a new car. But she thought it was romantic that he wanted to save her.

In hindsight, his motive is now clear, she said.

"I believe that man had a disease to his ego. He's a legend in his own mind," she said.

The couple's honeymoon ended about two years after they were married. He worked with the Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad as an undercover narcotics officer. He was a talented officer, she said, and his success poisoned his outlook.

"He really led a double life. But what fed his ego was his line of work, how he could deceive people," she said. "When he'd come home, he'd be the exact opposite. He could do it and he could do it with no problems."

His zeal for his job, though, led to a brief downfall. According to court documents, Peterson was fired in 1985 after the Bolingbrook Fire and Police Commission found him guilty of official misconduct, disobedience, failure to report a bribe and self-assigned police action. At the time, he was working on a case against a reputed drug dealer.

Connolly declined to comment on the case, but she said it was during this time she learned of his first of many affairs. But she forgave him.

In 1986, Peterson was reinstated after a Will County judge overruled the commission's decision. And his controlling behavior intensified, she said.

"We had bugs in our house. He put a microphone in our kitchen and taped our conversations. He was cheating so much he wanted to make sure I wasn't," she said. "His whole thing with us is that, 'I need to know my family is safe at home and you're not going to be doing anything you shouldn't be doing'—and that enabled him to do whatever he wanted."

When tensions would boil over, the police came to the house a few times, she said, but added, "the police were our friends," and no reports were filed.

Finally, about 1992, she had enough. By this time, he was already having an affair with Savio, she said, and it was easy for them to divorce. She called it amicable.

Now, although remarried and living on a farm Downstate, she still feels resentment when looking back on her life with Peterson.

"We had such a great life and he blew it. It wasn't good enough for him. He had four great wives who did everything for him. And it was never enough for Drew Peterson."

Earlier Thursday, the Bolingbrook Police Pension Board voted unanimously to give Peterson his pension, saying the law prohibited it from taking any other action, even though one board trustee expressed apprehension.

"While I understand the pension statutes, I'm not comfortable with the decision we have to make today," Trustee Alyssia Lee said, reading a prepared statement. "I am aware that if I am the only no vote, Sgt. Peterson will receive his pension. Therefore my decision is based solely on the statute."

Attorney Richard Reimer issued a news release explaining the board had no alternative but to grant Peterson's request for retirement and give him his $6,067.71 monthly pension.

"While the trustees . . . are sensitive to the intense scrutiny placed on Sgt. Peterson and, unfortunately, the Village of Bolingbrook, the Board is required to grant Sgt. Peterson's benefits without delay, as to do otherwise would expose the trustees to liability for breach of their fiduciary duties . . .," the release stated.

A grand jury has subpoenaed witnesses in the Savio and Stacy Peterson investigations. A source familiar with the cases said Drew Peterson exercised his 5th Amendment rights when he appeared last week.

State police searched a water-filled quarry Thursday and coordinated a ground search with about two dozen of Stacy Peterson's friends and relatives, finding nothing.

thx klaasend & oldfart

strange about the eyes -
maybe unconscious reaction to interior lying

I had noticed he closed his eyes a lot during an interview
someone else noticed he "blinked" a lot

All his wives are collaborating each other's story!
No surprise.
Funny 2nd wife would say it was so good at the good times, when it was so bad at the bad times.
To me that would be all bad.
It has to be safe and nonthreatening all the time for me to say it is good.
But I have seen both in my life so I can say that.

Sergeant Peterson Blames Missing Wife for Media Circus

Aired November 15, 2007 - 20:00:00   ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.


MIKE BROOKS, GUEST HOST: Tonight: After weeks of hiding out and lashing out at the media, it seems Drew Peterson just can`t stop talking. The veteran police sergeant continues his media blitz, still denying he had anything to do with his third wife`s mysterious death or his fourth wife`s disappearance. He says 23-year-old Stacy Peterson left on her own, and now says he`s angry with her for creating this media circus.
And with the a second autopsy under way of wife number three, more witnesses reportedly called before a grand jury.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The husband of missing woman Stacy Peterson making his case on national TV yesterday, denying he had anything to do with her disappearance more than two weeks ago. Well, now Sergeant Drew Peterson says he still believes Stacy left him for another man. Meantime, a man who knew Peterson`s previous wife says a grand jury has been talking to witnesses about her death. Kathleen Savio was found dead in her bathroom in 2004. It was ruled an accidental drowning at the time, but her body was exhumed earlier this week after suspicion that her death may not have been an accident.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BROOKS: Good evening. I`m Mike Brooks, in for Nancy Grace. Tonight, Drew Peterson speaks out yet again.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Still more questions than answers (INAUDIBLE) mysterious death of Drew Peterson`s third wife, previously camera-shy Peterson talking to the media yet again, some shocked at what Peterson has to say, this as witnesses reportedly called to testify before a grand jury.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I was actually on my way home that evening from work. Drew pulled up next to me in the police car. It so happened that we were on the same street, and he asked me to go to the house within the next 10 to 15 minutes. He said he was trying to drop off the kids for, like, the last day-and-a-half, and she wasn`t answering the door. And that wasn`t like Kathy not to do. If he was a couple of minutes late, she would, you know, be right on the phone with the police department.

He came -- after her best friend came into the bathroom, I yelled out her name a couple times. She started screaming, and that`s when Drew came running up the stairs right into the bathroom. I`m looking at her. You know, he did check her pulse, and then started screaming out, What am I going to tell my kids?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BROOKS: Good evening. I`m Mike Brooks, in for Nancy Grace. Thanks for joining us. Well, it seems that Drew Peterson just can`t stop talking to the media. His fourth wife, Stacy, still missing, wife number three -- her body was exhumed the other day and another autopsy done, and he says that she is the one creating this media circus.

And the person he spoke to most recently is with us here on set tonight. Joining me here in New York is Jon Leiberman, correspondent with "America`s Most Wanted." Jon, thanks for joining us.

JON LEIBERMAN, "AMERICA`S MOST WANTED": You got it, Mike.

BROOKS: So what did he have to say?

LEIBERMAN: Well, I got to tell you, I`ve been hammering away at Drew, saying I want to see him out searching for his wife, for his fourth wife...

BROOKS: Right.

LEIBERMAN: ... and I want him to call on her to -- you know, I want him to actively help in the search. So I called him today to ask him to do that, to tell him to come on "America`s Most Wanted" and let`s help bring Stacy home.

BROOKS: And what`d he say?

LEIBERMAN: In the course of our conversation, he says that he`s angry with Stacy because, I have this circus surrounding me and my family. So he`s angry with her for that. And I asked him the question, Do you want Stacy back? And he interpreted that to mean did I mean did he want her back to be his wife...

BROOKS: Right. Right.

LEIBERMAN: ... and live in the house. And he says, Whether I want her back anymore is questionable, he says. I hope she exposes herself to be alive and well. And I said, Drew, is she alive and well? And he says, I`m hoping she is.

BROOKS: I`m hoping she is. Now, how was his whole demeanor with you?

LEIBERMAN: It`s amazing, Mike. He is calm. He`s cool. He`s collected. He wasn`t rattled at all. He said he was frustrated by the fact that our host, John Walsh, had gone on some shows...

BROOKS: Right.

LEIBERMAN: ... and basically convicted him. He did say, you know, he`s innocent until proven guilty. He said that to me. And he reiterated that he had nothing to do with the disappearance of Stacy or the accidental death, what was ruled accidental, of Kathleen Savio, his third wife. But very calm, I mean, almost eerily so.

BROOKS: Well, you know, yesterday, he was on the "Today" show with Matt Lauer, and he -- again, out in front of the media he says is creating this whole circus. Let`s take a listen to what he had to say with Matt Lauer yesterday.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SGT. DREW PETERSON, SUSPECT IN DISAPPEARANCE OF STACY PETERSON: She never told me she was seeing another man. She -- well, maybe she did. But I believe she`s with somebody else right now.

MATT LAUER, "TODAY": Let me just go back to did she or did she not say to you, I`m seeing someone else, Drew?

PETERSON: It wasn`t put like that. She found somebody else, that was her exact words.

LAUER: And you believe that she is now not dead, that she has actually run off with another man.

PETERSON: I believe that, yes.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BROOKS: That was video of Drew Peterson yesterday on the "Today" show, a stoic Peterson tells his version of what he believes happened to his missing wife, Stacy.

I want to go right out to her -- from Los Angeles, to Bethany Marshall, psychoanalyst and author of "Deal Breakers." Bethany, you`ve seen this. You`ve have heard what Jon had to say about his whole demeanor, and you`ve seen, you know, other news clips of him. What do you think of his body language and his behavior?

BETHANY MARSHALL, PSYCHOANALYST: I have so many thoughts. The way he`s sitting back and his legs are planted in front of him, it`s as if he`s arrogant, he`s indifferent. I thought about all the research about sociopathy, which is sociopaths have very low levels of anxiety and that`s why their conscience doesn`t form (ph) because they`re not afraid of getting into trouble. So they tend to go in front of the camera, even if they`ve committed homicide, because they don`t really think they`ve done anything wrong.

During the interview, he expresses no concern for his children, other than when Matt Lauer says, What will happen to the children if you go to jail? Then he gets a little emotional when it`s all about him. For someone who has, like, a stalker-type mentality, who is literally on top of his wife all the time, he presents not one theory about who she went away with, not one cell phone record, not one story about who it might be.

And at the very end, when Matt Lauer says to him, Do you want to say anything to her, he kind of turns into the camera and laughs. And I don`t know the exact quote, but something like, you know, Come home. But it`s as if he doesn`t really know she`s there. I think that the overall picture is of indifference and as if she really doesn`t -- he doesn`t really think she`s around.

BROOKS: You know, and he says that she took of with somebody else. And you know, we talked yesterday with one of Kathleen Savio -- wife number three -- with one of her relatives, who said that he was extremely violent towards Kathleen Savio. And yesterday also on the "Today" show, he says -- Matt Lauer said, Did you ever hit her? Peterson said, "Never, never hit her, never raised a hand to her. And then he goes on to say, I don`t believe our relationship was ever violent. There were a few incidents where Stacy and I would have verbal confrontations, and I`d be in her face and she hated being cornered. And one time she hit me in the head with a frozen steak."

What do you think of that, Bethany?

MARSHALL: Well, what I really think is -- I thought about the pattern of spousal abuse, where the man kind of stalks, belittles, blames. He`s on top of the woman all the time. And then when she reacts, he says, Oh, kind of out of control, aren`t you, little missy? And that was kind of the reaction he had with Matt Lauer on the "Today" show. It`s as if the women were unstable, hormonal, they were getting their periods and then they would, you know, threaten to leave him.

He said at one point that he had tossed her into the pool at a party and she came out swinging. But he had very little insight as to why she actually might be angry with him. So it was really the lack of insight seemed to fit the profile of an abuser, and the externalization of blame and blaming the victim.

BROOKS: Well, Bethany, as you were just saying, he was trying to blame it on everything but himself, all these other outside things. And he went on to say yesterday, "I`m not trying to be funny here. Stacy would ask for a divorce after her sister died on a regular basis. I`m not trying to be funny. And it was based on her menstrual cycle. It was like any moment she had when she was unhappy with something, she would want a divorce."

I want to go out to Pat Brown, criminal profiler and author. What do you get by this guy`s behavior, as a professional profiler, Pat?

PAT BROWN, CRIMINAL PROFILER: Well, one of the reasons he is starting to blame the menstrual cycle of this woman is because when he got her at 17, she was controllable. That`s why he wanted a younger girl. And then she had two kids, she became a mother and she became more of a woman, and she said, Wait a minute. I don`t think I like the way I`m being treated. So she started fighting back.

And you know, he has a badge. He can use that on the job, but you can`t use it at home. So he`s frustrated because in his work, he gets a lot of -- you know, he gets his power and he gets his control. But at home, apparently, after a little while, he loses it.

BROOKS: Do you agree with that, Bethany?

MARSHALL: I completely agree with that. But I also think that it shows a lack of insight into why she was angry with him. If she`s continually threatening to leave, it`s because she really doesn`t want to be with him. And in the interview, he failed to ever link that to his own behavior.

BROOKS: Let`s go out to the phones. Mary from Washington, D.C., my home town. Good to be with you.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Thank you. My question was, have they ever explored the possibility that he may have paid someone to knock these wives off, or you know, to do that? That`s the reason why he`s able to act so relaxed, because technically, he didn`t do it himself?

BROOKS: Jon Leiberman, has that ever come up?

LEIBERMAN: Yes. That`s an excellent question that the caller had. We have sources inside the investigation theorizing that maybe he did have help. And that`s one thing they`re looking at right now as they piece together the timeline of this case. Who did he have contact with in the days leading up to Stacy`s disappearance? And then who was unaccounted for in that period of time?

And I got to tell you, Mike, another scary thing, actually, and that`s why I think Drew is so insecure -- we have sources inside this investigation who say that he tapped the phones of each of his four wives repeatedly to monitor their conversations and to see who they were talking to.

BROOKS: And that goes back to the whole thing Bethany was talking about, and Pat, about the controlling -- about how controlling this guy was.

LEIBERMAN: Absolutely.

BROOKS: You know, now, there is a grand jury that is sitting right now, involved in this case, and there have been a number of witnesses back and forth, you know, from the courthouse to this grand jury. We hear, Jon, that Paul Peterson, Drew`s brother, and another Bolingbrook police officer have been in front of this grand jury. What do you know about that?

LEIBERMAN: One thing that it appears that the grand jury wants to explore, Mike, is who in the Bolingbrook Police Department had the inside on this whole investigation back when Kathleen Savio died in the bathtub?

BROOKS: Right.

LEIBERMAN: Because they were initially at the scene. Then state police were called in once they realized that this was a Bolingbrook cop`s wife who was dead.

BROOKS: Right.

LEIBERMAN: But there have been a lot of questions about, Did Bolingbrook try and sweep this under the rug? So one thing that they`re trying to paint in front of the grand jury is, What did these Bolingbrook cops know? What did Drew say at work about it? And of course, what did he say about Stacy and his other relationships.

You know, a lot of people told us that Drew had a lot of women on the side...

BROOKS: Interesting.

LEIBERMAN: ... all throughout his career at the Bolingbrook Police Department, and everybody around knew about it.

BROOKS: That`s very interesting, that he had women on the side, because we heard again from one of Kathleen Savio`s relatives yesterday that the confrontation between Kathleen and Stacy took place in the car while he was still married to Kathleen and Stacy was in the car. And he handcuffed her and then called police, where he probably should have been calling the police on himself.

Let`s go back out to the lines. Steve from Michigan, thanks for being with us.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Hey, thanks for having me on. I was just wondering, why is he disguising his identity? Every time you see him being interviewed, he is looking down at the camera, like the footage you`re showing. Coming out of his garage, why does he have his face covered? It seems to me he`s got something to hide.

BROOKS: Pat Brown, what do you have to say about that?

BROWN: I think the reason he did that when he was being pursued by the media was that they were coming into his territory and they were -- it was on their terms, not his terms. And he didn`t appreciate that, so he was saying, Look, you`re not going to be able to take the pictures you want of me. I`m going to cover that up.

But when he can call the shots, when he got, you know, the request from the "Today" show to go on, he said, OK, I`ll do that. Now he thinks he`s in control, he can plan everything he wants to do and do the perfect interview. At least, he thought it was a perfect interview.

BROOKS: Let`s uncage the lawyers. With us here in New York is Richard Herman defense attorney, and out of Atlanta, Renee Rockwell. OK, Richard, he`s your client. This guy, all of our panelists for the last couple of weeks have been saying, Look, he should just stay at home, stay in his house and keep his mouth shut.

RICHARD HERMAN, DEFENSE ATTORNEY: You heard that devastating analysis by Dr. Bethany Marshall. That`s exactly why a defense attorney does not want their client talking to the press. Any move he makes is going to be criticized. There is nothing he can do to gain favor with the public or with anybody right now. He has to wire his jaw shut. He has to go on a vacation. He has to stay out of the public eye right now. Every move he makes is being criticized and it`s being evaluated the wrong way. He`s getting destroyed in the public`s view.

BROOKS: Do you think that he is any better off today and yesterday after doing that interview with Matt Lauer than he was the day before?

HERMAN: Mike, he`s absolutely worse off. If it goes to trial, this prosecutor is looking to make a name for himself. He`s got to get votes to win an election. He looks like he`s got tunnel vision here. It looks like he`s going to indict Peterson on something. And these tapes are going to be played to the jury. It`s really bad this guy`s talking. I cannot believe it! It`s incredible.

BROOKS: Well, you and I don`t agree very often, but Richard, I have to agree with you on that.

Now, Renee, he`s asking for an attorney. Get your airfare from the cheapest airline you can find and get on down there. Why would he be on TV, national TV, soliciting for an attorney?

RENEE ROCKWELL, DEFENSE ATTORNEY: And you know what, Mike? Attorneys will stand up and line up for free to represent a case that`s going to have a lot of media attention. But think of what he`s doing when he`s giving these interviews, Mike. He`s actually committing himself to, I have never been violent with my wife. I have never done this, I have never done that. Those words will come back to haunt him, Mike, because this isn`t an interview that you can throw out and say, Hey, I wasn`t read my rights, I wasn`t this -- this has no police involvement. This is in front of the media, so it will come back. He needs to shut up and not say anything else.

BROOKS: Well, I think we have a consensus from the defense attorneys that, Oh, that`s what he needs to do is to shut his mouth, stay in his house and listen to his -- and listen to whoever`s been giving him legal assistance. I don`t know who it is, but they`re not giving him right assistance.

ROCKWELL: No, he does not have a lawyer, I promise you, because no lawyer would let him do what he`s doing.

BROOKS: But he probably thinks he`s smart enough so he can handle it.

Let`s go out to the phones. Sandy from Arkansas, thanks for being with us.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Thank you. My question is -- I love your show, first of all.

BROOKS: Thank you.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: And this is for the defense attorneys. But I`d like to know if there`s any way -- first of all, I don`t agree with the defense attorneys. But I`d like to know if the pathologist, maybe Dr. Michael Baden or whoever, can get some DNA from her hair, even though it was still full of blood, if there`s still any way they can pull DNA from her hair?

BROOKS: Well, you know, it`s very interesting you bring that up. The NANCY GRACE show has been able to confirm with Kathleen Savio`s family that an independent autopsy will be conducted by the Savio family, independent of the other autopsy by Dr. Blum (ph) that is being conducted as we speak. And this one is going to be conducted by noted forensic pathologist Michael Baden. So that`s a very good question.

But I`m going to throw that question out to Dr. Marty Makary, physician and professor of public health at Johns Hopkins in Washington, D.C. What do you think they can glean from this?

DR. MARTY MAKARY, PHYSICIAN, PROF. OF PUBLIC HEALTH, JOHNS HOPKINS: Well, there`s probably realistically very little that he`s going to be able to glean from this. I mean, it`s been years. And common things being common, autopsy aside -- and there`s no such thing as an independent autopsy, just like there`s no such thing as an independent counsel. Common things being common, a middle-aged person that dies in the bathtub -- I mean, what do you think?

BROOKS: I tell you what. We`re going to -- we`ll get right back to that.

But tonight`s "Case Alert." Several investigations under way in the death of a 40-year-old man tasered at the Vancouver airport, and it`s all caught on video. Robert Dziekanski appears to confused and lost at the arrivals area. According to reports, he was unable to find his mother for hours. Video shows him throwing a computer and breaking a glass table and a window before officers arrive. Then, unable to communicate with police because he speaks Polish, he walks away. Then officers taser and subdue him. Moments later, Dziekanski goes unconscious.

And tonight, check out all the new messages about Nancy and the babies and the twins, plus photos and video. It`s all on CNN.com/nancygrace. Click on Nancy`s baby blog.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I also think that every woman in America should be appalled that that was his direction (ph), that while she had PMS issue that she wanted a divorce. I think he should be ashamed of himself. I think he should be looking to find Stacy.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BROOKS: I`m Mike Brooks, in for Nancy Grace. Well, Drew Peterson back in the spotlight again. He says he doesn`t want the attention and he blames it all on his missing fourth wife, Stacy, for creating what he called "this media circus."

Well, part of this media circus today was "America`s Most Wanted" correspondent Jon Leiberman, who`s joining me here on set. Jon, as we talk about this more and more, how is her family -- how is her family reacting to him being on TV all the time?

LEIBERMAN: Oh, they`re so distraught over it. I mean, think about it. And all the searchers too. I mean, every time that Drew goes on television or talks to us and says, You know what? Stacy walked away. She doesn`t want to be found. She`s with some guy -- it just throws -- it`s just -- it throws salt in the wound to this family who`s missing a loved one and to the dozens and dozens of searchers out there who are looking for Stacy day in and day out and praying and hoping that they find her.

BROOKS: Let`s talk about this cell phone. She was last seen when?

LEIBERMAN: She was last seen earlier in the day on Sunday, that Sunday.

BROOKS: And then he spoke to her about 9:00 o`clock?

LEIBERMAN: He claims that she called at 9:00 PM, and at that point, she relayed the fact that she was leaving him.

BROOKS: Now, we talk a lot about cell phone technology. Now, he says that she called him on her cell phone. We know that they`ve done two search warrants of the house. They took out computer records, cell phone records, everything else. And they probably have subpoenaed -- I know as a former investigator, I would have subpoenaed the cell phone records already.

LEIBERMAN: Oh, yes.

BROOKS: Won`t they be able to tell through this technology, you know, that it wasn`t just, you know, her going, Hey -- dialing her phone up, Hey, how`re you doing? And then, you know, dialing -- getting on his phone...

(CROSSTALK)

LEIBERMAN: It would ping in the exact same area.

BROOKS: Exactly.

LEIBERMAN: As you know. But was he under duress somehow? Was he -- we don`t know. Maybe he made a mistake, and maybe that`s the mistake that will bring him down. We don`t know. But we do know that police clearly have evidence. They have chinks in his timeline. They have contradicting testimony, enough to come out and call him the suspect in her disappearance.

BROOKS: Yes, I mean, he -- we went from nothing to then, during the press conference, they called him -- he`s going from now a -- you know, a - - you know, to a suspect, you know?

LEIBERMAN: And you notice, Mike...

BROOKS: A person of interest to a suspect.

LEIBERMAN: And you notice it happened after he spoke to the grand jury and they spoke -- the police spoke to the two older children of Drew. There are problems with his timeline and his story.

BROOKS: We`re going to talking about that.

But tonight "Case Alert." Verdict in the case covered on the debut of the NANCY GRACE show. Just moments ago, a jury finds former high school football coach David Temple guilty of murdering his wife, Belinda, Temple found shot to death in her bedroom closet. For years, David Temple remained calm, claiming that it was an intruder, but police eventually found enough evidence for charges. Temple now faces life in prison.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: In a network interview, Drew Peterson says he has nothing to do with the disappearance of his wife, Stacy Peterson, or the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Peterson has never searched for Stacy. The former police sergeant claims he was never violent with the 23- year-old missing mother of two.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BROOKS: I`m Mike Brooks, in for Nancy Grace. Well, he claims he was never violent with wife number four, but we know different with wife number three.

I want to go right off to the phones, to Lorraine in New Jersey. Thanks for calling in, Lorraine.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Hi. I have a question. How come they -- my question is, how come they`ve never done a lie detector test on him, if he`s so -- says he`s -- he didn`t do anything? How come they`re avoiding that?

BROOKS: Well, you know, I can -- let me answer that for you. I can tell you, Lorraine, that`s one of the first things I was talking about, you know, one of the things that investigators -- it`s a fantastic investigative tool. He was cooperative with the police early on, but then he says -- he said he lawyered up. But apparently, he`s not being cooperative with police anymore, and I would -- you know, right now, he has -- I`d say if you have nothing to hide, take a polygraph.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He swears he`s telling the truth, but is Drew Peterson hiding secrets about two of his wives? The mystery begins on October 28. That`s when Peterson, a veteran police sergeant, reported his fourth wife, Stacy, missing. The search for the 23-year-old began almost immediately, but while family members, volunteers and police looked for Stacy, her husband did not.

But authorities think Peterson knows exactly where Stacy is. They say he may have killed her. The case, however, do not end with Stacy. There are also questions about this woman, Kathleen Savio. She was Peterson`s third wife. She died under mysterious circumstances. Three years ago, the body of the 40-year-old was found in her bathtub. At the time, she and Peterson were getting divorced. Her death was ruled an accidental drowning. Police unearthed Kathy Savio`s casket, exhuming her body for an autopsy, hoping it`ll answer the questions her family continues to have.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

MIKE BROOKS, GUEST HOST: I`m Mike Brooks, in for Nancy Grace. Thanks for being with us. Well, as Drew Peterson continues to put his face in front of the media, his fourth wife, Stacy, is still missing, and third wife, Kathleen Savio, has -- right now, her body exhumed the other day, and is undergoing another autopsy. As we come to air, the NANCY GRACE show has been able to confirm that the Savio family`s request to have an independent autopsy done by another medical examiner, aside from the one right now who`s doing this, Dr. Blum -- this one is going to be conducted by noted pathologist Michael Baden.

Now, I want to go to the first autopsy. And Jon, I want to talk to you about that. The first autopsy took place -- I had some real problems with it as an investigator. Number one, the Illinois state police investigator who testified at this coroner`s inquest -- he was not even there at the scene. He didn`t observe the scene. He wasn`t present for the autopsy. You know, I`ve been involved in cases like this. I`m going to go to the scene and I`m going to be there for the autopsy. That`s one of the problems I have. There`s some other problems.

Kind of take us back and set the scene at that -- at that now could-be crime scene, where before it was an accidental drowning.

JON LEIBERMAN, "AMERICA`S MOST WANTED": It`s a laundry list of potential problems, Mike. Number one, the autopsy didn`t show any water in Kathleen`s lungs, which clearly, you would have to have for a drowning. Her tongue was clenched between her -- her mouth. And generally, in a drowning, you go unconscious. The muscles relax and your tongue is not clenched in your mouth.

Another problem in the same -- the same state police...

BROOKS: Right.

LEIBERMAN: ... investigator you referred to took Drew Peterson`s alibi hook, line and sinker. He said, I was with my family over the weekend, the few days prior. And he didn`t do any digging, this state police -- he just kind of signed off on it and said, OK, he was with his family, so it must be accidental.

So many other problems. There was no water analysis done between the water in Kathleen`s sinuses...

BROOKS: Right.

LEIBERMAN: ... to see if that`s the same water that came out -- that was in the bathtub, as well.

BROOKS: Right.

LEIBERMAN: I mean, so -- the drain was closed, yet they say the water somehow had to have dripped out. It just doesn`t make any sense.

BROOKS: You know, a lot of other things, too. Number one, she was -- it was an empty tub. Her hair was still wet. She had a laceration on the back of her head. And the autopsy -- autopsy number one said that there were contusions over other parts of her body.

Dr. Marty Makary, physician and professor of public health at Johns Hopkins, OK, does this make any sense to you? The dry tub, the wet hair, the cut on the back of the head that they said was consistent with her falling in the tub and knocking her unconscious, other contusions on her body, the clenched tongue -- does any of this make any sense to you? And try to help us explain why this would -- her body would be in this condition.

DR. MARTY MAKARY, PHYSICIAN, PROF. OF PUBLIC HEALTH, JOHNS HOPKINS: I think the two of you just completed the autopsy and there`s probably no need to do one.

(LAUGHTER)

MAKARY: I mean, these made sense to anybody. I mean, what did she have, a sudden stroke or a heart attack at age 41, at the time when the bathtub was full of water? I mean, there`s no reason somebody should have a laceration or a tongue that`s not retracted in the back of their throat if it was a natural death.

BROOKS: Very interesting. So is this Dr. Blum, and now probably Dr. Baden -- are they going to go now, take a look at the body, see if there`s anything they can glean from this new autopsy after the body has been exhumed? And then what else are they going to be looking for, Doctor?

MAKARY: Essentially, this is going to be a documentation mission. It sounds like the first autopsy just did not well document the injuries and put them together with a reasonable conclusion. So what they`re going to do is get that down on the record and have the people that need to be there in the room.

BROOKS: Very interesting. I want to go back out the lines. Susan from Ohio, thanks for joining us.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Thank you, sir. It`s such a great privilege to speak to you, Mike.

BROOKS: Good to have you on.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: And I want to say congratulations to Nancy and to her new family that`s born, and I am thinking of her and praying for she and the newborns.

BROOKS: And I can tell you that she appreciates your thoughts and your prayers. She`s probably watching us right now.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Thank you, sir. I`m retired from the medical field, and I find this case you`re discussing this evening very, very fascinating. And my question to you and to Nancy is this. What would be the motive for Drew Peterson killing one or both of these ladies? Was the motive -- if he did this crime or crimes, is it insurance money or is it other relationships, or was there another factor? Has his personal life been investigated to a greater degree to define whether or not there was some sort of motive for him doing this?

BROOKS: Pat Brown, criminal profiler, author of "Killing for Sport."

PAT BROWN, CRIMINAL PROFILER: Very simple. For a psychopath, people are either useful or they`re in the way. And if they`re no longer useful - - in other words, they`re not the good wife you want them to be, they`re not doing anything for you and you want to move on and get some other women, then they become in the way.

And most of us, when somebody becomes in the way, we divorce them. But then the problem is you have to deal with them the rest of your life, and you have to pay money, either child support or alimony. You certainly don`t get any insurance money. So for a psychopath, if they`re in the way, kill them. Then you don`t have to deal with them at all, and you get money and you can just be free forever. It really works well if you don`t get caught.

BROOKS: Bethany Marshall, I want you to weigh in on that question also.

BETHANY MARSHALL, PSYCHOANALYST: Pat Brown`s brilliant, and I totally agree with her. And she`s really talking about splitting, too. When you`re with me, you`re good, and when you`re away from me, you`re bad. What also comes to mind is that 44.4 (ph) percent of all homicides occur over disputes around property and money. And I know that Kathleen Savio was -- he wasn`t wanting to pay the $2,000 in child support a month. And then also, if Stacy Peterson was on the brink of leaving the relationship, he might have had to divide the property and to support her in some way. And we also know that women are at the greatest risk of homicide as they`re about to leave a relationship.

BROOKS: You know, I want to go back out to the lawyers, Renee Rockwell in Atlanta and Richard Herman here in New York. These statements and everything we`re seeing on TV of him up there running his mouth, are these going to be admissible in court, should he be indicted?

RICHARD HERMAN, DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Well, he should not be indicted because there`s no case in either one of these. And as far as...

BROOKS: Oh, Richard! Come on! What do you mean, there`s no case in either one of these?

HERMAN: No case -- listen to me. There`s no case in either -- Mike, by the way, it`s primetime. I told you before. I bought you a tie. It`s an extra long tie for you. It goes great with that shirt. Come on, buddy.

BROOKS: I appreciate that. But sometimes the answers you give, I think your tie`s a little too tight, so you got to loosen up a little bit, boy.

(LAUGHTER)

HERMAN: They will be admissible in court, thought, and that`s why he shouldn`t be talking right now.

BROOKS: What do you think, Renee?

RENEE ROCKWELL, DEFENSE ATTORNEY: The statements will come in because they`re not statements that were involuntarily given to law enforcement. But the best thing that could happen to him defense-wise is if he got indicted right now, the state wouldn`t be ready to present any kind of case. There`s no evidence. There`s no evidence that there`s even a homicide in wife number four or wife number three.

BROOKS: Well...

ROCKWELL: So the best thing would be an indictment because he could file speedy trial, and once you get tried once, Mike, that`s it. They`ve got one crack at you, and that`s it.

BROOKS: Well, they`ve got one crack at you. Now, Richard, how long do you think this grand jury is going to continue?

HERMAN: Oh, this grand jury`s an investigative grand jury. This thing could go on for six months, renew it, maybe a year, who knows, Mike? I mean, this autopsy -- what`s going on now, this exhumation of the body, is an absolute disgrace. The forensic pathologist will tell you they`re not going to find anything now that they didn`t have before. None of those soft tissue injuries are going to show up. They`ve all been decomposed. There`s nothing except fractures that were found in the initial one. This is a disgrace. This is just done for the public, to win votes. That`s what`s being done now.

ROCKWELL: But Richard, can I jump in on this...

BROOKS: No, you know -- win votes? What are we talking about votes here, Jon?

LEIBERMAN: This is ridiculous. Yes, they may not even need to have any substantive differences...

BROOKS: Right.

LEIBERMAN: ... in the autopsies because now they`ve gone back, they`re looking at documents. They`re looking at restraining orders. They`re looking at a pattern of behavior leading up to Kathleen Savio`s death. So they may not even -- they`re now looking at all of what the autopsy will show through a different pair of glasses now.

BROOKS: Right. And Richard -- Richard and Renee, can you say timeline? Doesn`t add up here, folks.

ROCKWELL: Well, you know what? But he`s the one that`s making the timeline. That`s why defendants should never say anything because once you say it, you paint yourself into a corner. But regarding this exhumation, they might be doing this not only to see if he`s squirming a little bit, but to see if the -- what was presented and the authorities that were involved first time around didn`t cook something up and maybe not present a fair finding. And maybe somebody else was involved in the undetermined or accidental finding of a drowning.

BROOKS: But can you say Scott Peterson?

(LAUGHTER)

(NEWSBREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: ... mother of two, 23-year-old Stacy Peterson, southwest suburban Bolingbrook, gone, massive searches, suspicion finally cast the way of the husband, Bolingbrook police Sergeant Drew Peterson, who is now an official police suspect. He maintains his wife ran off with another man and hasn`t participated in any search efforts.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: If this was my wife, I`d be out here, you know? I`d be doing all I could. This is just wrong.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BROOKS: I`m Mike Brooks, in for Nancy Grace. Well, looks like Drew Peterson is still making the rounds on the media outlets. Just yesterday, he had an interview on the "Today" show with Matt Lauer. Let`s take a look at that.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MATT LAUER, "TODAY": Can you look at me straight in the eye and tell me that you had nothing to do with the death of your third wife, Kathy, or the disappearance of your fourth wife, Stacy?

SERGEANT DREW PETERSON, SUSPECT IN STACY`S DISAPPEARANCE: I can look right in your eye and say I had nothing to do with either of those incidences.

LAUER: Do you have anything you can present to me that might prove your innocence?

PETERSON: No. I don`t know what to tell you. Just let the case unfold as it does.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BROOKS: That was video of Drew Peterson on the "Today" show. Peterson calmly denies having anything to do with his third wife`s death or his fourth wife`s disappearance.

I want to go back out to Jon Leiberman. Jon, the grand jury meets every Wednesday, you were telling me.

LEIBERMAN: Right. Right.

BROOKS: How many people have been before the grand jury so far?

LEIBERMAN: It appears four have been in front of the grand jury. So this is a slow process.

BROOKS: Right.

LEIBERMAN: And somebody mentioned earlier, they`re really in no rush to indict because they do need to build a case. We know they got a lot of physical evidence out of the house in the way of cell phones, computers, weapons. Drew had a lot...

BROOKS: What kind of weapons do they have?

LEIBERMAN: Drew had a number of rifles, apparently, in the house. They had -- this is also a guy, Mike, a lot of people don`t know -- he`s a martial artist, as well. Drew Peterson knows martial arts. I mean, he`s very skilled.

BROOKS: Very interesting. Now, he has resigned. He is no longer a Bolingbrook police sergeant. He just resigned. When did he resign?

LEIBERMAN: Earlier this week, Monday, he turned in his resignation.

BROOKS: He turned in his resignation. Now, he has 39 (SIC) years on the job, as we say. I had 26, he has 39. I know I get my pension every month. Now, he`s resigned now. Is he eligible for a pension still?

LEIBERMAN: Drew is entitled to $6,000 a month.

BROOKS: Whoa! I was with the wrong department.

LEIBERMAN: Yes, $6,000 a month, unless he`s convicted of a felony in connection with his employment as a police officer. So let`s say he`s convicted and let`s take...

BROOKS: Right.

LEIBERMAN: ... a few steps (INAUDIBLE) Let`s say he`s convicted of some felony in this case.

BROOKS: Sure.

LEIBERMAN: He will probably argue that he deserves the pension because whatever the felony is wasn`t in direct connection with him being a cop.

BROOKS: So what you`re telling me -- and again, we don`t want to convict the guy.

LEIBERMAN: Right.

BROOKS: But if he is found guilty of any crime, he will still get his pension! Oh!

LEIBERMAN: Unless -- unless it can be proven that it was a felony in connection with him being a Bolingbrook police sergeant.

BROOKS: A job-related felony. Unbelievable.

Tonight, CNN "Heroes."

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

FOREST WHITAKER, ACTOR: Unfortunately, right now, tumors of the brain are the biggest cause of death in children, really, over leukemia. And I don`t think people really understand that or know.

Hi. I`m Forest Whitaker, and my hero is Dr. Keith Black, who is a neurosurgeon and researcher who has saved many lives in his work.

DR. KEITH BLACK, CEDARS-SINAI, LOS ANGELES: There`s nothing more frightening than a brain tumor. It affects our ability to speak, to feel, to interact with the environment. We`re dedicated to finding effective treatments for that.

WHITAKER: My grandmother had a brain tumor. They told us that it was inoperable and that she wouldn`t live out the year. And my mother and my sister, they found Dr. Black. And he did conduct the surgery, and she lived about nine years from that time.

BLACK: You get to help people. You get to try to have an impact on the lives of people facing very difficult problems.

What you see here is probably a metastatic tumor. This should be a very good patient, actually, for the gamma knife.

One of the most important things I think that we can do is to reach back into the community, is to provide for the next generation who, hopefully, will do even better than we`ve done in making discoveries. So we`ve created a program called Brainworks, and we bring about 200 students in from low-income schools. They get to be a neurosurgeon for a day.

WHITAKER: They`re able to play around with neurological toys, looking through microscopes, doing surgery on different things and having discussions where their voice is being heard.

BLACK: Some of the students, they`re now getting ready to apply to medical school. They want to go into neurology, science, as a result of that exposure.

WHITAKER: It`s that seed that I think it gives to people, that seed of hope when people come and sit in this chair, that seed that those kids have when they hear that, Yes, I can do that, he did that. He`s allowed them to embrace their futures and believe in their dreams. He`s a hero.

BROOKS: Now over to Headline News. Glenn Beck, what`s up?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

GLENN BECK, HOST, "GLENN BECK": Well, as politicians waste time by finger pointing and name calling, drug lords continue to wreak havoc along our southern borders and creep farther and further inside our states. Somehow, I`ve gotten pulled into the mix, but it`s just a dirty trick of misdirection, and I`ll have all the details and tell you what side I`m on in just a bit. I bet it`s the same side you`re on. Then Congressman Tom Tancredo is running a controversial new ad that pairs (ph) illegal immigration and national security. We`ll talk to him about the real dangers and the necessary solutions to keep you safe. And oh, O.J.`s back in the news! Next.

BROOKS: I`m Mike Brooks, in for Nancy Grace. First I just want to thank Richard Herman for this nice tie. It`s almost as nice as the clip-on ties he wears on the show every night. Richard, thank you very much. I do appreciate that. It`s not Brioni (ph), but it`s not bad. Thank you.

HERMAN: Proper gentleman.

BROOKS: Thank you, sir.

I want to go right back out to Jon Leiberman, correspondent for "America`s Most Wanted." Jon, we get a lot of calls asking, What about wife number one and number two?

LEIBERMAN: Yes, it`s a great question. Wife number one of Drew`s was a high school sweetheart. They met very young. Wife number two, they were married for about 10 years between the early `80s and early `90s. And he met wife number three while he was still with wife number two.

BROOKS: Out to Anna from Indiana. Anna, you got a question?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes. I`d like to know if her body, Kathleen`s body, was (INAUDIBLE) still in the bathtub when the police got there (INAUDIBLE) removed because if he was removed, he should have known better than that. He`s a cop hisself. And over the weekend, Geraldo interviewed the neighbor that said he found her in the bathtub first, and the way he described it, she was...

BROOKS: Yes. No, I can tell you, Anna, that the body was in the bathtub when police got there and when he found it.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I was actually on my way home that evening from work. Drew pulled up next to me in the police car. It so happened that we were on the same street, and he asked me to go to the house within the next 10 to 15 minutes. He said he was trying to drop off the kids for, like, the last day-and-a-half, and she wasn`t answering the door. And that wasn`t like Kathy not to do. If he was a couple of minutes late, she would, you know, be right on the phone with the police department.

He said he was trying to drop off the kids for, like, the last day-and-a-half, and she wasn`t answering the door. ????

Didn't the autopsy say Ms Savio was dead for approximately only 6 hours? How could her hair remain 'wet' and her fingers 'pruny' for 36 hours.

Looks like a huge inconsistence to me. In my opinion Drew's whereabout for the 36 hours he indicates need to be throughly examined. He provided a clue himself.

So the Grand Jury summoned "Steve" but he didn't get on the stand.  They reserved the right to call him at a later date.  I would think what he had to say VERY important.

How can a person drown with their head above the water level of a tub?  I would like to know her EXACT position in that tub as it has never been really clear to me the exact positioning.

Rob,

I hope Dr Baden is able to make some sort of determination in his autopsy.  He mentioned on TV that she had lividity in her upper chest which would not be consistent with sitting up in tub nor even fetal position.

But even if ruled a homicide, still a long way from proving who did it.  Interesting it happened post divorce but before their finances were divided.

How convenient!

Indeedee Girl.. you're so right. DP has a motive tree sprouting up. It's impossible to know EXACTLY which motive could be the catalyst at this point imo...confusion sometimes helps a suspect as no clear motive exists...but a hodge podge of motives if you will. If he is ever charged in the case, I believe the prosecutor will need a clear understanding of his motives to get a conviction.

I would not be surprised if the new autopsy preformed by Baden yielded no results. I believe even I heard him mention that... or it could have been another coroner..A cracked skull might not even be definitive unless it could be traced to a implement.

someone posted where did he put the body? :2doh:

I was thinking why aren't they searching his house?
One of the news guys toured his home and said his basement was really creepy.
Some murderers  put bodies there.  Well???

I was thinking that if he did murder KS - I believe he did - that he did it at her home.  So maybe he would do the same with SP and hide it in the basement.
I  know he belonged to the K9 unit some neighbor had said at one time, so he would know how to cover  up all the clues. :silent:

also, since he is in the house, it may be right in front of their noses, but he supposedly restricted the tour of his home, remember.

also, why haven't we heard anything about where he was the day SP disappeared???

An implement like a policeman's night stick?

Baden seemed encouraged last night I thought on Greta.  The Coroner is allowing him to use his complete autopsy facilities as he can no longer take his own instruments on flights, etc.

Perhaps there will be something like microscopic traces of stain used on night stick, etc. that could provide some clue.

Yes, circumstantial is always tough.

That *would* be a good choice... good thinking.

But as far as motive - an affair might not be good enough. He cheats on wife # 2 with Ms Savio and wife #2 is not dead. That shoots down a new woman as a likely reason and a jury will quickly recognize that.

This is going to have to be a financial motive imo. DP *claims* he spoils SP. That's not going to look to good.

If you love your wife and children - a bit of spoiling is not bad... in-fact could prove you sacrifice so they may have.

On the autopsy - I think we are all going to have to accept these results one way or the other.

Can't deny pension to Peterson: board; Suspect in wife's disappearance has right to retire from police, attorney for trustees says
 
Dan Rozek and Joe Hosey, The Chicago Sun-Times
 

His wife is missing but his $72,000-a-year pension is safe.

Despite being named a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife, former Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson on Thursday was granted his full, $6,067.71-a-month police pension.

Three days after Peterson submitted his resignation, the police pension board voted 5-0 to authorize the retirement benefits -- with trustees saying they had no choice but to approve the payments for the 30-year department veteran.

The pension board "has no statutory authority to withhold, delay or deny Sgt. Peterson the benefits which he has earned," trustees said in a written statement. By law, Peterson can lose his pension only if convicted of a felony related to his job as a police officer, trustees said.

"I'm not comfortable with the decision we have to make today," Trustee Alyssia Lee acknowledged before the vote. "I have to uphold the law."

The pension board's approval came as police, family members and volunteers continued searching for 23-year-old Stacy Peterson, a Bolingbrook mother who vanished on Oct. 28.

Last week, Illinois State Police investigators called 53-year-old Drew Peterson a suspect in his wife's disappearance, which they labeled a "potential homicide."

On Tuesday, investigators exhumed the body of Drew Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, to conduct tests aimed at determining if her 2004 bathtub death was a murder or an accident.

During a nationally televised interview, Peterson on Wednesday denied any involvement in Stacy Peterson's disappearance or Savio's death. He also pleaded with attorneys to step forward to represent him if he is charged in either case.

Peterson's TV appeal for legal help, however, has cost him one of the two attorneys who had already agreed to represent him.

Lawyer Gary V. Johnson, who had accompanied Peterson to his Nov. 7 grand jury appearance, has dropped Peterson as a client because of the TV appearance, a source close to the case said. It's unclear if Peterson's other attorney, Fred Morelli, will continue to represent him. Morelli couldn't be reached for comment.

Despite the pension vote, Bolingbrook Police Chief Ray McGury said he still hasn't accepted Drew Peterson's resignation. He wants Peterson to face departmental disciplinary hearings for alleged misconduct that isn't related to the ongoing criminal investigations.

But pension board attorney Richard Reimer said Peterson has the right to retire.

"There's no authorization to stop a retirement," Reimer said Thursday.

Bolingbrook's police and fire commission likely will decide that issue when it meets next week.

Joe Hosey is a reporter with the Herald News.

Greta,

I just found out that Paul Peterson was a licensed locksmith in IL his license expired in 2002. I bet that’s one of the reasons that Paul Peterson was Called in front of The Grand Jury! Just because his license was expired dosen’t mean he didn’t help out his brother Drew!

Paul Peterson’s license can be checked out at http://www.idfpr.com then click on professional regulation license look up one there select locksmith the put in the last name in then the first initial.

Then you will get the record

Dr Baden Update
by Greta Van Susteren

It is now 3;13 central time and Dr Baden - I was just told - is still doing the autopsy on Kathleen Savio. He started at 1;19 central…I have no idea how much longer he will be doing the autopsy …

no land line call or cellphone call from Stacy’s cell phone was made to Drew - Wow, I did NOT know that one! AMW guy calling it a big fat lie that Drew told about receiving call from Stacy.


And they are just now finding this out or how long have they known this info?  I think this should've been one of the first things they did, checking the phone records.  Not that I am surprised in any way.  I know he is lying.  I can feel it.

snipped
I hope they will look into the death of DP's former girlfriend Monica's brother who didn't like DP and ended up being found hanging in his garage and DP was the one who found him.  If this is a true story, someone needs to check out this death also! :silent:
I agreed with the psychologist that DP was disconnected in his interview - unfeeling and cold and showed no upset and confusion of his supposed story that his wife walked out on him.
Of the fact he spied on SP constantly, yet has no idea who she left with.
The story is bogus about her leaving with another man.
Quote

Welcome Ali!


I totally agree with this.  I wonder what this girlfriend and family are thinking now.  Something is just a little to coincidental along when you add all the other missing/dead people in DP's life.  They need to check it out, but not sure if they could prove anything from a hanging, unless he killed him in another way, then hung him.  But is should be checked!

There will be a search effort tomorrow beginning at 8:00 AM. Participants and volunteers are asked to meet at the Country Inn Suites in Bolingbrook.

A candlelight vigil will be held beginning at 4 PM at Kathleen Savio’s home at 392 Pheasant Chase Drive in Bolingbrook, then we will walk to Stacy’s home at 6 Pheasant Chase Court, Bolingbrook.

Volunteers are needed for the search as well as to tie ribbons and arrange the candles for the vigil

Thanks - I see she hasn't been updating, but did add a disclaimer to her comments section. Wonder if that has something to do with a minor comment I left she didn't post. LMAO!

The woman lets anything go through and I had to say something.... I prolly should have known better.

Ok - now on to the homicide.

What if Baden and the county coroner come to a differing conclusion? What then? And what if DP has an alibi (not that I think he does)...but how are they going to link him to this alleged crime? Any ideas?

He could have motive, but does he have opportunity?

Another thing, if they don't find Stacy soon, it will not be until next spring when the weather gets better. Or a hunter stumbles over her - which I doubt...she's hidden very very well in my opinion.

the tox report didn't indicate anything unusual. Maybe they didn't screen for a specific poison???

I saw no drugs in her system.

It's just a gut feeling, but Drew's cockiness tells me that he's been particularly shrewd in hiding her remains. The noose is tightening fast around the SOB's neck right now, and I hope the kids are safe.

Drew is a suspect. Does anyone know what they actually have on him? other then suspicion of-course. There must be something and he keeps going on TV, and one of his attorneys have split . . . He sure doesn't seem to be sweating it.

With Scott Peterson, he never helped search and jogged and played golf -> all highly suspicious...With DP -> he says no reason to search - she left with another man.

This looks like all the need is a body because they have 'other' evidence - I'm curious. Like always. LOL....of course a body is always needed, but this case looks like it could go forward without a body.

His alleged phone call from Stacy is not adding up . . but beyond that - what do the LE have?? any ideas?

I don't know what they have, Rob, but I certainly agree with you, he doesn't seem to be sweating it at all. He's arrogant and confident. That brand of confidence reminds me of Joran, after it was well established that ALE or the "powers that be" were there to make sure the truth would be hidden. There's a feeling to this, IMO of a good ole' boy network within the police force, and I believe that Drew is not the only one that knows exactly what befell Stacey and where she is. JMHO

By the way, it's bad form to keep that avi in this thread!  :lol:  :wink:

Dr. Baden said Kathleen's head could have been pushed down in the water of a much stronger person which would show no bruises.

He said he doesn't think there is any possibility that this was an accident.

He said the autopsy tells you what happened and the police tell you who done it.

Drunk or Drugs were ruled out.  He said what should be looked at are certain poisons.

Dr. Baden said there were bruises on her hands like she was fighting off somebody.

New member with a few comments....
Wife #2 may not have challenged DP in anyway and may have been happy to just get out with her life (or her daughters) so left with no mutual assets ..... and she didn't stand to get child support or alimony so..... no ongoing drain on DP's income and he already had #3 in his pocket so to speak.
As far as SP being in his house, that is an interesting comment.  His being so controlling and worried about money, the new in thing is to have a secret room buit into your house as a "safe" room.  Its very possible that he may have done this.  I wonder just how well LE searched his house, if they actually searched it? 
His being so confident makes me wonder about hiding spots around BB.  Since he's a long time resident and I'm sure on good terms with the public works department, etc. maybe he's aware of even more remote, unlikely spots to hide/bury a body.  In the past, BB did not allow construction past 10/31 on roadways so most projects have to be completed by that date.  Perhaps he used that to his advantage and buried the body under a newly paved roadway?  On the west edge of town (within minutes) they are reconstructing a road and there was heavy construction there a short time ago and I believe still ongoing being a joint venture so . . . as well as other areas of town.
Just my thoughts.

Yep, Dr. Baden said it was a homicide. There was a lot of water in the casket which made the autopsy more challenging. It makes me furious that ANY family is sold arrangements to lay a loved one to rest with assurances that their remains are well protected and in those horrific instances that dictate an exhumation, it's discovered that things weren't sealed properly. How would anyone know? Regardless of the outcome of this, and I know it's not the priority for that poor family, but I wish they'd sue the crap out those responsible for the leakage. On behalf of all of us that are so vulnerable to being shistered, I hope they make a break the bank!

Steve Carcerano said Drew has been very calm.  He lived two doors down from Kathleen.  He is saying Kathleen had a boyfriend at the time of her death and they were dating about a year and a half.  He said Drew had already called the locksmith.  He said he is not surprised by what Dr. Baden said.  Greta asked him was she a well liked neighbor and Steve said absolutely.  Drew Peterson granted full $72,000 per year police pension.

Welcome doubtingthomas.  I agree the reason why wife #2 survived is because she wasn't entitled to anything and she was just happy to get out of the situation with her life.

If there was one person who would know spots to bury someone it would be DP especially if he was planning it.  Drew was the commander of the neighborhood watch.  I also believe he had help and the police know this.

Possibilities -

1. Drew Peterson has murdered Ms Savio.
2. Someone unknown has murdered Ms Savio, completely unrelated to Drew Peterson.
3. Someone unknown has murdered Ms Savio because of something Drew Peterson did -> revenge or vengeance.
4. Someone unknown to all parties has murdered Ms Savio and is still on the loose.
5. A friend of Drew Peterson has murdered Ms Savio on the orders of Drew Peterson.
6. A friend of Drew Peterson has murdered Ms Savio without the knowledge of Drew Peterson.
7. A neighbor saw that Ms Savio was alone and took the opportunity to murder Ms Savio.


Observation -

1. The original coroner made a mistake in the case of Ms Savio and could have cost another person their life.
2. The original coroner made a mistake and others could have had the same critical flaw occur in their case.
3. The original coroner could have made a mistake intentionally to protect Drew Peterson.
4. The original coroner and crime scene technicians made critical errors in the crime scene investigation.
5. If the crime scene investigators made the possible mistakes - they could may overlooked evidence either to implicate or exonerate Drew Peterson.

Just thought of something - has anyone ever seen a police department act with such disregard for the deceased / murdered wife or ex-wife of a colleague before?

That alone is shocking.

When a cop is killed in the line of duty they go ape sh*t. And when a relative is killed / murdered (even if it is not clear) they do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of it immediately. No stone is left unturned.

In this case - it seems they couldn't get Ms Savio in the ground fast enough.

Well, he did already have a child with his then underaged girlfriend, right? 

Apparently DP did routinely threaten the life of each of his wives, even the #2 as he told her he could kill her and make it look like an accident.

My EvilX does not like to pay alimony.  Maybe I should watch it!   :shock:  He once told me he could kill me with curare and no one in this country would even know to look for it.

Hey San - in the autopsy report did you see a rape kit diagnostic? I don't recall seeing that. I could have skipped over it or just forgot it was included.

Another point - Drew Peterson gives a huge clue when he does not go into the bathroom where Ms Savio is found. He sure doesn't want his DNA or prints in that area for a reason.

I know he said he didn't go in because he didn't want to be accused of stealing anything - but what cop is accused of that?  and with all the crap he was getting away with anyway - why would that be an issue if dating a 17 year old wasn't?

Drew Peterson is trying to sanitize his possible involvement in the case and in the location of her death.

A question that I have is why, if DP couldn't reach KP in how many days to return the kids, didn't he involve his own PD?  Why call a locksmith after how many days?  I would have thought that'd be a smarter move to cya.  Arrogance perhpas?  I mean, what he did seems so rehearsed and narrated.
Also mentioned on gretawire and topix were a couple comments about the red-light cameras being taken offline/suspended right after SP went missing.  Some say they only activate (flash & click picture) when a red is run, but I don't think that is 100% accurate.  Would they not be in standby mode when the light turns yellow and start taping so that they would be sure to catch the entire violation?  Yes, they might flash when the red is run but I would think they starting taping sooner.  One of the posters said that these pictures are all reviewed by traffic officiers before the ticket is actually sent to the offender so is it possible they saw him in his vehicle at the wrong place and time?  And yes, if you're thinking clearly you could probably avoid them but...can't help wondering.

I agree DP was keeping away from the bedroom for a reason.  He setup her neighbor a made him go in the house to look.

I think they should do some investigating of the  boyfriend who "hung" himself in his garage  at the time his sister was dating DP.  He did NOT like his sister Monika dating him.  And wouldn't ya know, but who's the first cop on the scene to find him.  DP!    I wonder if his family wonders about it or what they think.  I just find it a little to coincidnetal, wherever DP is, and things aren't going the way he wants, people end up dead/missing.   I really think they should check it out.

Also,  if anybody DID help DP,  I think it's that Steve friend who keeps on defending him.  His poor friend Rick finally came around to his senses, I feel sorry for him, but at least he's man enough to admit, but HE's even afraid for HIS life!

Anna,  the good 'ol boys were the problem during Kathleens death.  I think the ISP are going head first and are working there hardest to solve this, now, which is why the BB PD aren't working it.  They don't have a choice anyways with the media all over and now Dr. Baden's autopsy.  (It ain't Aruba anymore) I understand Dr. B did this pro bono for them, because he got to know them personally and felt the urge to get to the truth for them.

BTW - WELCOME DOUBTINGTHOMAS!

I agree Dihannah.  The family of the ex girlfriend should request an investigation on the death of their son.

Steve is getting on my last nerve.  He is defending him a little too much.  He is all of a sudden best friends with Drew.  Why?  I also believe DP brother is very involved.

Yes, I agree about the brother of his girlfriend Monika.  It does seem mightly strange that he just decides to hang himself after stating his opinion of DP.  I also can't understand how the BPD could just ignore the fact their married officier (I'm assuming he was a sergant then) was dating a young SP who was 16/17 at the time.  That should have sent up red flags considering KP's many reports of abuse, etc. Makes one wonder what else the BPD looked the other way on too for DP. 
I also wonder if other governmental agencies are involved in the search/investigation.
Thanks all for the welcome.

Welcome, Doubting,

I am trying to get this straight in my mind.  DP was married to Kathleen but having an affair with underaged Stacey.  Kathleen files for divorce.  Divorce is granted and 7 days later DP and Stacey are married and they already have a little boy several months old.

Then how long was it until Kathleen was found dead?  I know it was after the divorce was granted but before any agreement or ruling on division of assets.

DoubtingThomas,  I know it's been mentioned on Greta's show before.  If I remember correctly, his boss (don't know DP position at that time), asked his boss about it and somehow they said it was ok.  In otherwords, he ACTUALLY got there blessings though they were not thrilled about it.

Makes me think of that 17 yr old boy who went to prison for sex with a 15 yr. old and did 10 yrs.  Just recently got out!   They were BOTH underage. But it's ok for a 47 yr old man to date a 17 yr. old, get her pregnant while still married to Kathleen?  DP was older than her own father and stepkids who were older than her! Now to me THAT is statutory rape.  But seems DP could do no wrong and can get away with ANYTHING!  Until now, HOPEFULLY!

Anna, I'm a little confused with that exact timeframe too, but his 2nd marriage ended during his affair with Kathleen and I'm not sure when Monika (who's brother hung himself over them) was in the picture.  I heard today him and 2nd wife were married from 1982 to 1992, or wait, was that first wife.  Heck I can't keep track other than, his pattern is to get married, have an affair, leave the current wife for girlfriend, over and over, until he decided to kill 3rd wife and 4th comes up missing.  He makes Scott Peterson look like a saint!

Thanks, Dihannah,

I guess more will be known as the investigation progresses.  I did get the impression from Dr Baden tonight that he still has some things to look over in regard to the previous autopsy of Kathleen Savio.

It has crossed my mind that maybe DP told Stacey something about what happened to Kathleen and later came to regret it.  She was trying to leave him and that is always the most dangerous time.  Dr B said he was going to see the actual tub if the people living there now will allow him to do so.  He is very good at what he does.

My EvilX does not like to pay alimony.  Maybe I should watch it!     He once told me he could kill me with curare and no one in this country would even know to look for it. 

.OMG Anna - I am hoping you are not talking about your ex.  Please tell me no.
I had an abusive first time and now have a best friend/husband, but lived in fear for so long.  Do take care.
:-|

He told wife #2 that he could kill her and make it look like an accident.  I believe DP has killed way before wife #2.  I don't know when his ex girlfriend's brother was found dead.  Was it after wife #2 or before.  I would be looking into even more unsolved murders.

San - this is like crimelibrary stories of those people no one suspects until someone realizes that everyone around them is dying.

- Did Stacy's Mom disappear before she met Drew?
I thought she did.  Otherwise . . .
- Then the girlfriend, Monika, had a brother who disapproved of Drew found hanged and it was Drew who found him.  (not sure either if it was before or after wife #2)
- Then KS wife #3 found dead
- Then "poof" no more SP wife #4
(I thought there was one more??)

So maybe other disappearances who were found by him or other.
How about investigation by outside agency into the missing  persons and deaths not solved in DP  jurisdiction????? :-x

Also, I agree that KS could have been killed by DP associate, but don't believe an unknown to Drew - especially with all the threats he gave and especially with the timing of being before finances were figured. :-?

I've said this before, but I feel so bad for Stacy, whether she knew something about Kathleens murder or not.  She was only a child in my mind when she met Drew.  She did have an alcoholic/abusive father and a mother who left when whe was 15.  She was so young, vulnerable and naive.  She had a stepmother who cared and tried, but can only do so much at some point.  That Asshole took advantage of a young and naive girl.   Only when she grew up and matured, did she realize what she got herself into and actually tried to get away, with small children in the picture.    I'm sure the fear was even greater IF she knew anything about Kathleens death.  However, I don't think Drew was stupid enough to have faith in such a young girl to keep her mouth shut, so my guess, is she doesn't know about the "murder", just truly believed it was an accident.

I have 2 daughters close to Stacy's age, and I can't even begin to imagine what the families are going through.  I would have been kicking my daughter's all the way home if they hooked up with such an older and shady man.   Of course that's easier said than done, especially at 17......

Dihannah1 -

Yes - she was sooo young and vulnerable and naive.
He was experienced and wooed her - young girls love attention - so much as to be blinded!
Also, I am sure he brainwashed her that KS was a terrible person - remember they say he keeps protraying himself like the victim.

I do not think she knew of KS murder.  She looks happy and relaxed in what I believe are the earlier pics and with the story I see and hear about her - can't believe it.  Also, Drew didn't seem one to confide in his wives - he had such secret lives with each one with other stuff on the side.
I saw a downloaded video from FOX of interview of Cassandra, SP's sister, and the pics of SP with Cassandra are really cute - of two sisters who are such good friends.
Cassandra seemed so despairing, in anguish, and heartbroken in the interview after SP went missing.
It was very much what you would expect of a family member.
exactly the opposite behavior of DP tape I saw of his interview.

She said SP told her she was getting a divorce and Cassandra was the one who said I am scared for you.  Then Cassandra said Stacy leaned over and whispered that she was scared for her life (- so I guess they were in a room in SP house).
She said SP talked about getting the children out safe.  Cassandra said she left and they texted each other.  Cassandra was going to come back Saturday? just to be with SP.  Then she disappeared.  Something like that - my sound was off, so that is what I got out of it.

From the Chicago Sun

The story of Drew's first wife

November 16, 2007
BY KARA SPAK Staff Reporter
Dave Brown has Drew Peterson, in part, to thank for a fantastic 26-year marriage.

“I’m so glad Drew let her go,” Brown said of his wife, Carol, who was married to Peterson from 1974 to 1980. “She’s the most leveled-headed and good-looking person on the planet.”

Carol Brown, now 50, was the first wife of Peterson, the former Bolingbrook police sergeant named a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife.

Carol Brown was the first wife of Drew Peterson (inset). They graduated from Willowbrook High School in Villa Park and married while she was still a teenager.

Attention has turned to Peterson’s first two wives after Stacy Peterson vanished Oct. 28 and the body of Peterson’s third wife, Kathleen Savio, was exhumed Tuesday. Authorities are taking a new look at her 2004 death, initially ruled an accidental bathtub drowning.
In a published report, Peterson’s second wife, Vicki Connolly, said Peterson had struck her when they were married and told her he could kill her and make it look like an accident. Peterson denied that Friday, saying, “Vicki is just mad because I cheated on her.”

Carol Brown’s husband does not allege Peterson abused Carol Brown during their marriage. “Drew did not physically abuse her,” Dave Brown said Friday.

Carol Brown divorced Peterson, though, because he cheated on her — with a woman who wasn’t Vicki Connolly, Dave Brown said.

State Police interviewed Carol and Dave Brown on Thursday night, asking them if they thought Peterson was capable of harming somebody. The Browns were told not to discuss the interview.

Carol Brown declined to be interviewed. She is worried about the effect it would have on her children with Peterson — Eric and Steve — as well as on her relationship with business clients.

Peterson, Carol Brown and Dave Brown are all graduates of Willowbrook High School in Villa Park, where Peterson ran cross country. Peterson and Dave Brown graduated in the 750-member class of 1972. Carol Brown is three years their junior.

Dave Brown, 53, a remodeling contractor, has known Peterson since junior high, when both were in accelerated classes together. They weren’t close but did play tennis together after high school.

The two both noticed a young Carol when she was a freshman at Willowbrook and they were seniors. “She was the prettiest girl in the freshman class,” Dave Brown said. “She’d look at you, and you’d think ‘wow.’ ”

Peterson joined the Army after high school and married Carol when he was 20 years old. They lived for a while in Virginia, where he was stationed to get military police training. “He always wanted to be a cop,” Dave Brown said.

The Petersons moved back to Illinois in the mid-1970s. Dave Brown, at the time, was attending the University of Illinois and driving back to Villa Park on weekends to work as a bouncer at a bar called 10,000 Horses (now known as DiMito Time). “The place was packed,” Dave Brown said. “It was the best singles bar around.”

Peterson would stop by, sporting long hair as part of his look as an undercover cop. “He would come in and just hang out to see friends,” Dave Brown said.

A year after Carol and Drew Peterson divorced, she married Brown. The two raised Eric and Steve Peterson and had a child of their own, Lauren, now 23.

Peterson regularly paid child support, and either he or his second wife, Connolly, would pick up the boys for regular weekend visits. Aside from normal family hiccups, everyone got along, Dave Brown said.

“I never competed with Drew to be a dad,” Dave Brown said. “I was a stepdad. They knew that. They were loyal to their father. And that was fine with me.”

When the boys moved out of the house, the Browns saw Peterson less. They never met his third wife, Savio, but met Stacy Peterson a few times. She is more than five years younger than Peterson’s sons with Carol Brown.

“She’s a kid,” Dave Brown said. “A lot of middle-age guys act like that’s a dream. I think they’re nuts.”

The last time Dave Brown saw Peterson was at his son Steve Peterson’s wedding in August. Since the disappearance of Stacy, the Browns have been flooded with calls from the media and old friends.

“We talk all the time about it,” he said, but declined to say if they think Peterson had any role in Stacy’s disappearance or Savio’s death.

Dave Brown said Eric Peterson hates the attention with “people banging on his door.” Steve Peterson has been on vacation out of the country.

Vicki Connolly, who was married to Peterson for 10 years beginning in 1982, said in a published report that Peterson took steps to control her, including placing recording devices in their home. He would hit her and play mind games on her. The two divorced after Peterson and Savio began an affair.

Connolly’s adult daughter, Lisa Ward, who lived with Connolly and Peterson when she was a child, told reporters Friday she feels lucky that her mom made it out of the marriage alive.

“Of course,” Ward said. “My mom is a very strong woman for being able to.”

Peterson dismissed Ward’s comment on Friday, as well.

“Lisa’s mad because I'm a strong disciplinarian,” said Peterson.

The man Stacy went to in trying time
ROSSETTO |

November 17, 2007
BY JOE HOSEY AND JANET LUNDQUIST Herald News
 
Investigators in the disappearance of Stacy Peterson have turned an eye to a Shorewood man from her past she reached out to just three weeks before she vanished.

Searches have been conducted in the area around the home of 35-year-old Scott Rossetto, and authorities have called him before a grand jury this week, he said.

A police source, however, said investigators do not count him as a suspect in Peterson's disappearance. Instead, the source said investigators have speculated that Peterson's body may have been dumped near Rossetto's home in an effort to frame him as the killer.

A police source said Rossetto and Peterson, 23, were romantically involved, but Rossetto insisted they were not. He said he only knew her because his brother and a friend had dated Peterson years ago, before she married former Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson.

Rossetto said he had not heard from Stacy Peterson in years when she called him last month.

"All of a sudden she called me once out of the blue about three weeks before she disappeared," Rossetto said. "That was the first contact in six years I had with her. She said she was just going through some stuff and just found my phone number."

Rossetto declined to discuss his recent conversation with Stacy Peterson, saying, "I can't tell you anything." He also refused to say whether she spoke of any trouble in her life.

The two exchanged messages, but never made plans to meet, he said. "We were friends," Rossetto said. "We talked every once in a while. But that's it." Police tracked down Rossetto through phone and text messages.

State Police have branded Drew Peterson a suspect in the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, his fourth wife. And authorities exhumed the body of his third wife last week to see if she really drowned in her bathtub as initially believed.

The suspicions swirling around Drew Peterson, 53, have not frightened Rossetto.

"Let him [try to get me]. I don't give a crap," Rossetto said. "Why would I be afraid of Drew? What is he going to possibly do to me? He's more than welcome to try busting into my house."

Rossetto said he was not tempted to indulge in an affair with Stacy Peterson.

"No. I didn't want any baggage," he said. "Sorry, she had a lot. She was married to a Bolingbrook cop and could've made my life miserable. I wasn't risking it. And I knew Drew well enough to know to stay away from her."

Rossetto said he didn't know that police are looking at him as a lover of Stacy Peterson's.

"I'm sure Drew probably thinks that, but I could care less about what Drew thinks," he said.

Drew Peterson said Friday he knows little about Rossetto -- but he knows of him.

"I heard of him," Drew Peterson said, but added that he had "no idea" how long the Shorewood man may have been involved with his wife.

"The police are looking into it," Drew Peterson said of the connection between Stacy Peterson and Rossetto, although he would not elaborate. He said police have not approached him about Rossetto.

Rossetto said he met Drew Peterson only once. Asked if Stacy Peterson was afraid of her husband, Rossetto said, "I'm not confirming that."

Rossetto said his brother dated Stacy Peterson for about two months years ago and they broke up when he left for the Army. "When my brother left for the military she started dating Drew and we haven't seen her since because he cut off all ties with us," he said.

Drew Peterson has repeatedly said he feels Stacy Peterson abandoned their family and likely ran off with another man. He recently appeared before a grand jury, as did his brother, Paul Peterson.

Drew Peterson, who in the last week traveled to New York City to appear on a national talk show, said the daily grind of police and media scrutiny is wearing on him.

"I'm just tired," Drew Peterson said. "It wears on you, you know?"

As soon as I read this it popped in my mind that DP could have possibly buried Stacy near his home. I wonder how far away he lives from DP.

This guy could care less what Drew Peterson thinks of him.

Need for control drove Peterson, families say
By Erika Slife, Josh Noel and Gerry Smith

Tribune staff reporters

November 18, 2007

Whether Drew Peterson was sitting in his squad car watching her as she left the mall or calling her eight times while she got a haircut, Stacy Peterson was accustomed to being the main object of her husband's attention, her family and friends say.

Ultimately, though, Peterson, a former Bolingbrook police sergeant, had a need to control his wife that got to be too much, they said. Last year, while her sister Tina was dying of cancer, Stacy would stay at her home, sometimes for long stretches. One day, Drew showed up unannounced to see if she was cheating on him, her sister Cassandra Cales said.

"That's when she said, 'You know, I can't do this anymore,' " Cales said.

Stacy, 23, told her husband she wanted a divorce days before she disappeared Oct. 28, her loved ones say. Peterson, 53, says she ran away with another man. He has not been charged with a crime, but police labeled him a suspect in the "potential homicide investigation."

The disappearance led authorities to re-examine the death of Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, 40, who was found dead in a dry bathtub in 2004. A coroner's jury ruled the death accidental, but officials—and an expert brought in by the Savio family—now suspect it may have been staged as an accident. Her body was exhumed Tuesday.

Peterson has denied involvement in the death of Kathleen and the disappearance of Stacy.

The portrait of Drew Peterson that has emerged from scores of interviews is of a charming man who stops at nothing to win the hearts of the women he desires. In an interview published in the Tribune on Friday, his second wife, Vicki Connolly, spoke of the extremes she experienced with Peterson: wonderful at times, and "really bad" at others, including threats on her life.

As each marriage wore on, Peterson became increasingly controlling and suspicious—even though he was the one who was already onto his next affair, according to relatives and his second wife. And as Peterson got older, the age gap between he and his wives grew.

His first wife was just three years younger than Peterson. When he was a senior at Willowbrook High School in Villa Park, Peterson began dating a freshman, Carol Hamilton. Three years later, the two married and moved to Falls Church, Va., where he was stationed in the Army.

Now remarried, she declined to be interviewed, but her husband, David Brown, said Peterson never threatened her physically during their four-year marriage. He was, however, "very controlling."

"If she wanted to go out on her own, he wouldn't like that," said Brown, who has known Drew since they were kids.

The couple moved to Bolingbrook, where Brown would see Peterson at a bar. Peterson, he said, had hair down to the middle of his back and told people he was working undercover.

While Carol was pregnant with their second child, she discovered he was cheating on her.

"When she found out he had a girlfriend and confronted him with it, he didn't want to get rid of the girlfriend," Brown said. "There were some problems before they had kids, but once they had kids is when things really went downhill."

The couple divorced amicably in 1978.


In 1982, Peterson married second wife Victoria O'Neil, who was 23 at the time. He was 28. They met at a Bolingbrook bar.

Vicki had a daughter, Lisa, from a previous relationship, and she said Peterson's desire to have Lisa call him "Dad" was nearly obsessive. Lisa's real father was not welcome in the home, Vicki said.

"[lisa's father] didn't fit into our little realm," Vicki said. "It took a lot of years for me to see that. In Drew's eyes, I was in his world and he didn't want any interference."

He said he preferred Vicki and Lisa remain at home, where he knew they were safe, she said. That left time for his career—and multiple affairs, she later learned.

Peterson performed his job with fervor, but landed in trouble in 1985. The police commission found him guilty of official misconduct, disobedience, failure to report a bribe and self-assigned police action. The trouble forced the couple to sell their home and move in with his parents, Vicki said. But in 1986, he was reinstated after a judge overruled the commission.

Vicki decided to leave Drew, mostly because of his affairs.The divorce was amicable, Vicki recalled, because Drew was already involved with the woman who would become his third wife, Kathleen Savio.

Kathleen didn't know Peterson was still married when she started dating him, her brother, Henry Savio, said. "He told my sister that he wasn't married and that he didn't have any kids when he met her," he said.

Kathleen, or Kitty as she was known to relatives, was around 28 at the time, working as an accountant and looking to get married, her brother said. They met through a friend, and Savio said Peterson, about 10 years older than his sister, swept her off her feet.

"He's a charmer," he said.

The couple married in 1992 and had two boys. Throughout the 10-year marriage, Savio said he never felt comfortable about it.

"I was kind of on my guard all the time," Savio said. "[Peterson and the kids] would do crazy stuff with my sister. They had a staircase at my sister's house. They would tie her up and roll her down the stairs. It was the big joke of theirs. I would say, 'What's wrong with you? Why would you let them do that stuff? There's no respect.' She would say, 'It's fine.' "

Don Bolger was a reserve police officer and neighbor. Bolger, 68, said Peterson was a "businesslike and professional" cop and a friendly neighbor who seemed to get along with his wife. He insisted that his boys call Bolger "Mr. Don."

"He's a good guy, and they seemed like very happy people," Bolger said. "Kathy was very pleasant and a very good mom."

Steve Carcerano, who lived two doors from Peterson and Savio, called the couple "great neighbors." He said Peterson was always quick to lend a tool or help unclog pipes.

But the marriage disintegrated. Medical records and letters obtained from Savio's relatives outline a pattern of alleged abuse and frustration with inaction by Bolingbrook police.

Carcerano, who would discover Kathleen's body in the tub, said the abuse may have gone both ways. Twice after their separation, he said, he saw Savio lash out at Peterson and Drew respond with restraint.

Once, Carcerano said he helped Peterson move out of the home he shared with Savio. She became angry and smacked Drew in the face with an extension cord, then spit on him, he said. "He laughed it off and said, 'You see what she's doing?' "

Drew was still married to Kathleen when he met Stacy Cales. She was just a teenager—her sister, Cassandra, says she was 16—when she met Drew. Stacy was working at SpringHill Suites hotel. Drew was night commander, and his partner was dating a woman who worked there. Drew started hitting on Stacy.

Cassandra said Drew was still living with Kathleen but was sleeping in the basement. Stacy would sneak in and spend the night, she said.

Peterson's need to be in control kicked in even before the two married, said her close friend, Sherrie Mills, who used to be married to one of Stacy's cousins.

Mills and her husband, Eddie, hired Stacy to work at their flooring company in 2001. After three or four months on the job, Mills said Peterson made an unusual request. "He was drinking with Eddie one night and told him, 'You need to fire her, but don't let her know that I told you to fire her,' " Mills said.

Despite Sherrie's protests, Eddie did it. Mills believed it was because Peterson wanted her reliant on him. "To me, it was because he didn't want her having money or independence," she said.

They married in October 2003, and unlike his previous wives, Stacy never worried about Drew cheating because he seemed so keenly focused on her.

Cassandra said Stacy told her that she feared for her life the Friday before she disappeared. In a whisper, she told her sister that if she disappeared, Drew killed her. She whispered because she was afraid he had bugged the house.

The night Stacy disappeared, Cales said Peterson told her: "I will not let her divorce me."

In August, Carol Brown, his first wife, saw Drew for the first time in years at the wedding of their younger son. Peterson told a story about placing his gun on a desk to intimidate "some union guys" who came into his printing shop, Brown said."He was acting like Mr. Tough Guy at the wedding, and I don't remember him being like that," he said.

My Conversation Today With Drew Peterson
by Jamie Colby

While the media remains camped out outside Drew Peterson’s Bolingbrook, Illinois home he is inside and so are his and Stacy’s children. Drew is screening calls but took mine late this afternoon after I started to leave a voicemail. It sounded like the kids were playing in the background. It’s been reported Drew has told them Stacy is on a vacation.

I’m surprised we aren’t talking more about how these four young children are doing. “The media is making it really tough on my kids” Drew told me today. “Are they back in school?” I asked. “Yes” he says “I wouldn’t keep that from them”. I’m told that Drew’s oldest, about to turn 15, is very smart and hasn’t missed a day of classes since Stacy vanished. Stacy and Drew have a 2 and 4 year old but Stacy also adopted two of Drew’s older children….two boys he had with Kathleen Savio.

I’m sure the media outside the Peterson home is disruptive to the children and I don’t know if the older ones know why the trucks, reporters and lights are there. The early morning I was outside we saw Drew’s son leave for school but we did not shoot him with our cameras.  He is a teenager who has one Mom who died in 2004 and now another missing three years later.  We also did not show the younger children the day they were carried out when the police arrived to execute their search warrant.  It’s unclear if any of them know anything about what happened to Kathleen Savio or Stacy Peterson but that is for the police, not news crews to find out in our judgment.

Drew said he would be on the show tomorrow (Drew’s Mom was on last week and you can listen to that interview in a post below) and I hope he will keep his word.  If Drew does do the interview it will be on when I anchor Fox News Live 12 noon eastern on the Fox News Channel. 

Drew confirmed to me that as a result of his resignation from the police department he will keep his pension and he told me he is interviewing and deciding on attorneys who will represent him as developments into the investigation of Stacy’s disappearance and Kathleen Savio’s death progress.  Though he has not been charged with any crime he told me today he “wants to be prepared”.

In the meantime, Drew and his four children (two older ones live in other towns) are inside their house tonight…a house from my tour inside clearly designed to meet the kids every need. Every inch designed Drew proudly told me weeks ago when he took me room to room…by Stacy.

Can somebody please tell me if they heard what DP was doing the day SP disappeared??  Please.
It has been a few weeks but I never heard what his alibi was. :-|

Did anyone see him that day?
Did he ask anyone to watch the kids or drop them off - the little ones.
I only heard about his supposed phonecall from SP that I believe he was unable to substantiate.
Was he at work???
Did his neighbors see him?
Drive anywhere?
Anything.

I just read the FP post about Dr. Baden's findings.
How many years was this covered up for and why and by who ?
Did Stacey know Drew did it ? Did she have the goods on  him ?
Was she part of the alibi of Drew's wherabouts when Kathleen was killed ?

Hello Greta Fans!

I just wanted to pop in during our lunch break at the Hotel. The Stacy Peterson search continues. We had a generous amount of volunteers show up and come out to search. I even ran into someone who goes to school with my son who knew him…small world.

The ribbons for the vigil are being cut and tied as I write this and everyone is just sitting around trying to warm up. It’s chilly and wet out there. My dog Reilly has been working so hard and he is a wet, muddy mess right now and smearing it all over the back seat of my car! The poor thing. I’m going to bring him out a piece of sausage pizza (or maybe two) to make him feel better!

The news crews are here and a reporter followed my team to our search location, as well as other reporters keeping with the other teams. All the volunteers are so wonderful to give so much of their time to help find Stacy Peterson.

To all those who were on my team: Thank you so much for covering so much ground and for sticking to the rules! 

Greta, thank you for all the attention that you have brought to the Stacy Peterson case.

Okay, I am off to feed my puppy dog!

Bye for now.

The story of Drew's first wife

November 17, 2007
BY KARA SPAK Staff Reporter
Dave Brown has Drew Peterson, in part, to thank for a fantastic 26-year marriage.

“I’m so glad Drew let her go,” Brown said of his wife, Carol, who was married to Peterson from 1974 to 1980. “She’s the most leveled-headed and good-looking person on the planet.”

Carol Brown, now 50, was the first wife of Peterson, the former Bolingbrook police sergeant named a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife.

Attention has turned to Peterson’s first two wives after Stacy Peterson vanished Oct. 28 and the body of Peterson’s third wife, Kathleen Savio, was exhumed Tuesday. Authorities are taking a new look at her 2004 death, initially ruled an accidental bathtub drowning.

In a published report, Peterson’s second wife, Vicki Connolly, said Peterson had struck her when they were married and told her he could kill her and make it look like an accident. Peterson denied that Friday, saying, “Vicki is just mad because I cheated on her.”

Carol Brown’s husband does not allege Peterson abused Carol Brown during their marriage. “Drew did not physically abuse her,” Dave Brown said Friday.

Carol Brown divorced Peterson, though, because he cheated on her — with a woman who wasn’t Vicki Connolly, Dave Brown said.

State Police interviewed Carol and Dave Brown on Thursday night, asking them if they thought Peterson was capable of harming somebody. The Browns were told not to discuss the interview.

Carol Brown declined to be interviewed. She is worried about the effect it would have on her children with Peterson — Eric and Steve — as well as on her relationship with business clients.

Peterson, Carol Brown and Dave Brown are all graduates of Willowbrook High School in Villa Park, where Peterson ran cross country. Peterson and Dave Brown graduated in the 750-member class of 1972. Carol Brown is three years their junior.

Dave Brown, 53, a remodeling contractor, has known Peterson since junior high, when both were in accelerated classes together. They weren’t close but did play tennis together after high school.

The two both noticed a young Carol when she was a freshman at Willowbrook and they were seniors. “She was the prettiest girl in the freshman class,” Dave Brown said. “She’d look at you, and you’d think ‘wow.’ ”

Peterson joined the Army after high school and married Carol when he was 20 years old. They lived for a while in Virginia, where he was stationed to get military police training. “He always wanted to be a cop,” Dave Brown said.

The Petersons moved back to Illinois in the mid-1970s. Dave Brown, at the time, was attending the University of Illinois and driving back to Villa Park on weekends to work as a bouncer at a bar called 10,000 Horses (now known as DiMito Time). “The place was packed,” Dave Brown said. “It was the best singles bar around.”

Peterson would stop by, sporting long hair as part of his look as an undercover cop. “He would come in and just hang out to see friends,” Dave Brown said.

A year after Carol and Drew Peterson divorced, she married Brown. The two raised Eric and Steve Peterson and had a child of their own, Lauren, now 23.

Peterson regularly paid child support, and either he or his second wife, Connolly, would pick up the boys for regular weekend visits. Aside from normal family hiccups, everyone got along, Dave Brown said.

“I never competed with Drew to be a dad,” Dave Brown said. “I was a stepdad. They knew that. They were loyal to their father. And that was fine with me.”

When the boys moved out of the house, the Browns saw Peterson less. They never met his third wife, Savio, but met Stacy Peterson a few times. She is more than five years younger than Peterson’s sons with Carol Brown.

“She’s a kid,” Dave Brown said. “A lot of middle-age guys act like that’s a dream. I think they’re nuts.”

The last time Dave Brown saw Peterson was at his son Steve Peterson’s wedding in August. Since the disappearance of Stacy, the Browns have been flooded with calls from the media and old friends.

“We talk all the time about it,” he said, but declined to say if they think Peterson had any role in Stacy’s disappearance or Savio’s death.

Dave Brown said Eric Peterson hates the attention with “people banging on his door.” Steve Peterson has been on vacation out of the country.

Vicki Connolly, who was married to Peterson for 10 years beginning in 1982, said in a published report that Peterson took steps to control her, including placing recording devices in their home. He would hit her and play mind games on her. The two divorced after Peterson and Savio began an affair.

Connolly’s adult daughter, Lisa Ward, who lived with Connolly and Peterson when she was a child, told reporters Friday she feels lucky that her mom made it out of the marriage alive.

“Of course,” Ward said. “My mom is a very strong woman for being able to.”

Peterson dismissed Ward’s comment on Friday, as well.

“Lisa’s mad because I'm a strong disciplinarian,” said Peterson

Geraldo just finished a segment about the case.  I didn't see all of it, but he had Dr. Baden, and the Camorotta (sorry, I didn't look back for correct sp of his name)--the guy who found KS in the tub, on air....he seemed shady to me.  Last question Geraldo asked was 'what did you think when you saw this woman in that tub?'  'C' ended up stating that he can't answer that...it was just something he didn't expect to see.  (this followed his comment that Baden had made up his mind prior to the autopsy....Baden replied that it was a fact because of the initial report and the added info at the recent autopsies)  Geraldo wanted to know if he thought someone harmed her or if he thought it was suicide or an accident.  ??? I think anyone would have some thoughts...then or afterward.

Mr Rosetto is said to reside in Shorewood. Shorewood is approximately 16 miles SW from Bolingbrook, by car depending which route you take/time of day 20 minutes, 30 minutes max.  Its right down I-55.
Also wondering about timeline.  Was it morning where SP was supposed to meet friends to paint and was it that night where her family started a missing persons or the next day?  And DP who said he spoke to her at 9pm?  Anybody know his alibi for the day she went missing? Can't help but wondering about spots he could have hid her depending on time available to him.

Here is a timeline that was posted on CTV:

Timeline
Please add to this and make corrections as needed.

Stacy Peterson, age 23, is described as a 5-foot-2-inches, 100 pound, white female with brown hair and eyes. She was last seen wearing a red jogging suit. She has a tattoo of a blue and yellow carnation on the small of her back and a scar across her stomach, according to a news release.

Sunday, October 28, 2007:

9-10am: Stacy is exchanging text messages with Bruce Zidarich, the BF of her sister Cassandra Cales.
>They were making tentative plans to paint a house the family rented for Stacy/Cassandra's brother Yelton (who has been sent back to jail). To get out of the lease, they needed to repaint the walls white. They had previously painted them in a vibrant palette.
>Bruce calls her cell around 10, and according to Bruce, it went something like: Stacy: I'm lying in bed but awake, let me know when Cassandra wakes up.

Later she did not answer calls.

Family started to worry, having been told that Drew was watching Stacy and tracking her movements, checking up on her. He would circle the parking lot at Joliet Junior College to make sure she was in class (pre-nursing, 1 course this semester); he would circle the parking lot if Cassandra and Stacy were in a restaurant to be sure no male was meeting them.
*neighbors have gone on record saying the same, that Stacy feared Drew and wanted to divorce.

Cassandra went to the Downers Grove PD to report Stacy missing, she was directed to go to Bolingbrook PD. When she went to BPD, she was directed to take a drive past the home to see what cars were there, and to report Stacy missing to IL State Police.

Drew claims Stacy called him at 9pm to let him know she had left him, and to let him know he could find her car at the airport. (Clow Airport, a small private airstrip near their home).

Cassandra said the cars were not there at the Peterson home at 9pm.

At 11pm, she stopped at the house on the premise of turning in fundraiser money. The door was answered by Stacys (step)son and he told her "Mom and Dad had a fight this morning" and "he is out looking for her".

Cassandra called Drew and she could hear car keys. He asked "Where is your sister?"

She then went to IL State Police.

Dr. Baden Will Have More Information
by Greta Van Susteren


Dr. Baden, as you know, did an autopsy on Kathleen Savio (Sgt. Peterson’s wife #3.) He concluded the manner of her death is homicide…but Dr. Baden is not finished. He took some samples from Kathleen Savio to conduct some further testing — eg to see if there was any poison in her system at the time of her death. Note that we have no information that she had poison in her body — Dr. Baden is just being thorough.

(http://gretawire.files.wordpress.com/2007/11/chief1.jpg)

The picture above of Dr. Baden was taken Friday night in Bolingbrook, Illinois about an hour before ON THE RECORD began. The picture below is of Dr. Baden and Chief Raymond McGury talking a short time before the show.  We did the show in a building that houses many municipal divisions — including the Chief of Police’s office…hence he wandered down to see what we were doing.

So, if we go with the timeline, DP was out looking for SP at 11pm per the son. Was he himself home all day before that?  Otherwise, that leaves him roughly 10-13 hours to think up a plan/dispose of the body.  With that much time he could of killed her in the morning, put her in temporary hiding spot and later he could have driven to SE/SW Wisconsin.  It was noted (I don't recall whether it was at  time of initial house search or when they relieved him of his weapons upon becoming a suspect) that he had quite a gun collection in the home. Now I realise that he most likely didn't use those weapons but since he's a collector, what would it have taken for him to purchase a gun from a local gun show in WI (easy to do, where they usually ask no questions) and have used that gun since it would be unregistered/untraceable to him anywhere?  He could have disposed of the body and gun in SE/SW WI where it is now deer hunting season in full swing.  Accidental deaths have been known to happen or hunters sometimes don't bring down their targets and they keep going to expire later on.  If he was counting on her not being found period or not found until spring, no one would think the smell of decomposition strange in these areas.  Just my thoughts and opinion.

Hundreds turn out for Peterson vigil

November 17, 2007
BY BRIAN STANLEY Staff Writer

BOLINGBROOK--About 200 people, 50 members of the media and two black dogs made the walk Saturday evening from the residence of the late Kathleen Savio to Stacy Peterson;s house.

Friends and relatives arranged the candlelight vigil which covered the two blocks separating the residences of Drew Peterson's third and fourth wives.


Stacy Peterson, the 23-year-old wife of the 53-year-old Peterson, vanished from the couple¹s Pheasant Chase Court home 22 days ago. State police have called the case a "potential homicide" and named Drew Peterson a suspect.

Pink and blue ribbons were tied around every lamppost and tree on Pheasant Chase Court as supporters were given candles with paper cups around them to block the wind and rain.

"This vigil is keeping the awareness out there," said Shawn Cothron, a Bolingbrook resident who spent Saturday morning searching a forest preserve for Stacy Peterson. Cothron has been searching because one of his relatives is a friend of Drew Peterson¹s 15-year-old son.

"I just want to help find some answers, especially for the kids. I think that's what everybody wants," he said.

Some at the rally made signs which read, "2 Beautiful Women plus 1 worthy cause = justice"; "No one is above the law" and "Watch out. We're P.M.S.-ing. Grrr!" Bolingbrook police officers stopped traffic to allow the vigil past the intersection of Lilly Cache Lane. Some neighbors watched from their windows while others came out and joined the procession as it passed by.

When the vigil reached Stacy and Drew Peterson's house, marchers who had been carrying signs set them on the front porch.

Anne Tarbell doesn't know Stacy Peterson or Kathleen Savio, Drew Peterson's third wife who was found dead in her bathtub, but the Bolingbrook woman traveled with the procession despite needing the use of a walker.

"I can't stand that women are being beaten up and murdered," she said.

"Domestic violence has to end."

Peterson's 1st wife describes doting husband
By Gerry Smith

Tribune staff reporter

10:07 PM CST, November 17, 2007

Carol Brown was five months pregnant with Drew Peterson's first child when she had a miscarriage. She had been bed-ridden in the weeks before, and Peterson was by her side, bringing her food and "always being very supportive of me," she said.

It would have been the couple's first child, and Peterson was devastated, she said. Speaking publicly for the first time since the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, Peterson's fourth wife, Brown, 50, described her ex-husband's support during the traumatic pregnancy and painted a more nuanced portrait than the increasingly controlling and suspicious husband described by his second wife and relatives of other wives.

In an interview published in the Tribune on Friday, Drew Peterson's second wife, Vicki Connolly, spoke of the extremes she experienced with him: wonderful at times, and "really bad" at others, including threats on her life.

Brown said Drew Peterson never threatened her or abused her during their six-year marriage between 1974 and 1980. She acknowledged, however, that he was a study in contrasts, a charming teenager and doting young husband who also could be controlling and, eventually, unfaithful.

Police have described Drew Peterson, 53, as a suspect in the disappearance of Stacy Peterson and are reinvestigating the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, whose body was discovered in a bathtub in 2004.

Asked if she thought Drew Peterson was involved in either case, Brown said, "I can't answer that."

Brown has declined numerous requests for interviews, allowing her current husband of 26 years, David Brown, to speak for her.

Meanwhile, she has watched media reports on the Peterson case in disbelief, never considering that the lanky teenager she met her freshman year of high school could be capable of murder.

At Willowbrook High School in Villa Park, Carol Brown and Drew Peterson met through a friend of Peterson's, who was a senior at the time. Back then, Brown said, she was drawn to his charismatic and outspoken personality.

"He was very outgoing, always told a lot of jokes," she said. "He was very confident."

The couple went on dates, with Peterson bringing her flowers, taking her to movies and his senior prom.

Three years later, in 1974, they married. After Peterson briefly attended the College of DuPage, the couple moved to Falls Church, Va., where he trained as a military police officer.

"That was always his ambition to be a police officer," she said.

They later moved to Bolingbrook, where they went out to dinner with other police couples. She rarely went out on her own, she said.

"He didn't really like me going out at night with friends," Brown said. "But he wouldn't hold me hostage and say, 'No you can't go out.' "

Peterson, by contrast, was out almost every night as an undercover police officer, she said. Then, when she was pregnant with their second child, she discovered that Peterson had been cheating on her.

"I thought he always had respect for me, but I guess when you stray in a relationship, you don't have respect for the person that you were doing that to."

In 1980, Peterson filed for divorce and appointed an attorney. Brown, who was not working at the time, could not afford a lawyer, so Peterson's attorney oversaw the divorce proceedings.

"That would be the controlling-type thing that he would do," she said. "He'd want things his way, and I'd want things my way and I think that's normal in any divorce relationship."

As for Peterson hiring an attorney to mediate the divorce, Brown said, "What kind of ethics did that lawyer have that he would represent both of us?"

Still, Brown was given full custody of their two children, and in 1981, she married David Brown, who was in Peterson's class at Willowbrook High School.

Though she received only $250 per month in child support, "if the kids ever needed anything extra, whether it was sports equipment or extra fees in school, I would ask him and he would pay it," she said. "There was no argument ever."

Peterson rarely attended his sons' sporting events, but Brown and her husband would be joined by Peterson's second wife, Vicki Connolly.

In August, Brown saw Peterson for the first time in years at their son Steve's wedding. By then, Peterson was married to Stacy Peterson, but he arrived at the wedding alone.

"I didn't feel like I needed to have much contact with him," Brown said.

In March 2005 a handwritten will was filed, it was dated March of 1997 and gave all assets to the spouse should one of them die
Assets DP received after KS died:
$533,000+ in life insurance
$1 million life insurance police for kids that DP controls
Businesses - value unknown, but both were sold
House sold for $288,000
Grand Total is well over $2million
Given the history of DV and the suspicious nature of her death DP should have been looked at much more closely at the time of the coroner's jury into KS's death.
Henry, KS's father, says he believes that DP had something to do with KS's death, but "you have to prove it."
Glad that Baden proved that KS was killed and did not accidentally drown.
Father thinks she was beat up and then drown as Baden said
DP is scheduled to be back on the Today show tomorrow morning
What question would you like to be asked of DP?
Father says he doesn't want to talk to him - can't look at him.
Nick would like to know why?
Savio family never saw a dime of the money DP received after KS died.
Craig Rivera interviewed Steve Cesare
SC dated Tina years ago

When he heard SP was gone, he was very concerned because of the email he had received from her recently that said DP was controlling, manipulative, and somewhat abusive.
When Tina was in the hospital more than 2 hours away, SC offered to take SP to the hospital to visit Tina, but DP said she was not allowed to go.
Tina told SC that she was very cautious of DP because she believed that DP killed KS.
SC looked right at the camera and spoke to DP: "Drew, you were lying through your teeth! These are real (hand on emails) and I'm real! You need to tell us what you did with her (SP)!"

Why Was Drew Peterson a “No Show”?
Saturday, November 17th, 2007

Drew Peterson was a “no show” on Saturday’s show and perhaps he will reconsider Sunday.  When I’d spoken with Drew Friday - after an answering machine at his home with Stacy’s voice answered and he screened the call before picking up - he said he would do the interview. That was prior to Dr. Michael Baden’s stunning autopsy conclusions which Greta broke On The Record later Friday night.

Even though Drew Peterson hasn’t been charged with any crime and in fact on Friday learned he will get his police department pension, he may have re-thought his agreement to come on the show after hearing the news that Kathleen Savio’s death has been ruled a homicide by such an experienced and credible forensic pathologist.

Drew told me by phone Friday he is interviewing and selecting a “team of attorneys” so that he is prepared for whatever is ahead in this investigation. He’d made a public plea for an attorney willing to take his case when he appeared on the “Today Show”. Maybe he was advised not to do the interview today or he may simply and suddenly have “no comment”.

Drew told me four days after Stacy disappeared - as I sat in his living room -  that he welcomed the re-investigation of Kathleen Savio’s death. “The conclusions” he told me “will be the same”. As most of you know that turns out to not be the case. In addition to explaining how he came to his manner of death ruling, Dr. Baden told me on our show today that one of the jurors during the inquest into Kathleen’s death was a police officer that knew Drew Peterson.

Do you think Drew had connections and caused a cover-up in the original investigation? This new investigation has a new police chief and new state’s attorney in charge and if Drew did hamper the prior investigation it’s a safe bet because of that we’ll learn about it.

As for the children - the original topic for today’s interview with Drew - all four children remain in Drew’s care and custody and we do not know if any of them learned the news of this new Kathleen Savio independent autopsy ruling. The two older children are Kathleen’s and Drew’s (adopted by Stacy after Kathleen’s death in 2004) and certainly they are old enough to read the paper or check headlines on-line.

Drew continues to deny any involvement in either his third or fourth’s wives death or disappearance respectively but I wanted the opportunity to ask him how he is explaining all of this to his children. I’ve left several messages and I’ll let you know if he agrees to talk to us on tomorrow’s show Fox News Live, Sunday 10am eastern.

Peterson to appear on 'Today' show again
Tribune staff report

7:10 PM CST, November 18, 2007

Drew Peterson, whose fourth wife, Stacy, has been missing since Oct. 28, will make a second appearance on the "Today" show Monday morning, according to the show's producers.

Peterson, 53, will join "Today" show host Matt Lauer for a live interview during the first hour of the NBC show, which starts at 7 a.m., to answer questions about the latest developments in the case. Peterson will not be in the studio, but he will participate from an undisclosed location, joined by his attorney, Joel Brodsky, of the Chicago firm Brodsky & Odeh, said Megan Kopf, a spokeswoman for the show

Peterson previously appeared on the Today show on Wednesday. He said he thought his wife had left him for another man and asked her to come back to their Bolingbrook home.

Peterson, who was a 29-year veteran of the Bolingbrook Police Department, has been named by investigators as a suspect in the disappearance of his 23-year-old wife

Statement from Sgt. Drew Peterson’s Lawyer
by Greta Van Susteren

UPDATE - See below.  I want to make sure you have the chance to read all the documents and releases that we receive.

There are two important points to keep in mind in reading the statement of Sgt. Drew Peterson’s lawyer below:

1/ What did the state’s medical examiner who did the autopsy the day before Dr. Baden conclude? (that is not yet released….)

2/ Dr. Baden did NOT say Drew Peterson killed wife #3. In fact, he specifically said on ON THE RECORD on Friday night that he could not tell from the autopsy — he could only tell the manner of death (not who did it.) No one has named Peterson a suspect in her death — and an investigation should be commenced that is wide open and not focused on one person. Good investigators don’t have their suspect first and then collect evidence to prove it — they do the reverse: they gather evidence to see who their suspect is.
 
Peterson statement:

We are the attorneys for Drew Peterson. We have seen Dr. Baden’s T.V. interviews regarding his autopsy of the remains of Kathleen Savio, which originally appeared on the FOX New Channel which we note is part of the FOX Entertainment Group. The results of Dr. Baden’s autopsy on Ms. Savio do not surprise us, not because we believe they are accurate, but only because Dr. Baden had indicated over a week before he had performed the autopsy that he believed Kathleen’s death was not an accident. While Dr. Baden is an eminent and renowned pathologist, we do not know his motivation for donating his services, and the nature of his arrangement with the FOX Entertainment Group. It has been reported that FOX paid for Dr. Baden’s trip to perform the autopsy, and his first interviews were on the FOX Entertainment owned FOX News Channel. All we wish to say is that Kathleen’s death should not be a source of entertainment.

We are also compelled to respond to one of Dr. Baden’s statements regarding his autopsy of Kathleen Savio. Dr. Baden is quoted as saying that ANormal healthy people don’t die accidently in bathtubs@. We are troubled by this statement. Even assuming that Ms. Savio was a Anormal healthy@ person, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that in 2006 alone there were 126,563 bathtub/shower related injuries in the U.S. based on 3,147 reported incidents, including 4 reported deaths, for people between the ages of 21 and 65. A great many of these reported injuries included lacerations, contusions and abrasions from falls in bathtubs. Also, of the 6 bathtub/shower related deaths reported to the Consumer Product Safety Commission in 2006, 2 included deaths by drowning.

We are concerned that there may be a rush to judgment in the Savio and Peterson investigations fueled by the media attention. Our hope is that the authorities are not swayed by what may prove to be inaccurate statements, or by media created pressure, and will only be influenced by confirmed facts and hard evidence.

Once again, for the sake of Mr. Peterson’s children who are caught up in this affair, we ask that the media exercise restraint. Mr. Peterson will comment through our office when such comment is appropriate. Otherwise, there will be no comment.

Ex-cop addresses suspicions in disappearance
Suspect in missing wife’s disappearance urges her to ‘publicly show herself’
By John Springer
TODAYShow.com contributor
updated 6:01 a.m. PT, Mon., Nov. 19, 2007


Nearly a month after his fourth wife went missing and a week after the body of his third wife was exhumed, former Illinois police sergeant Drew Peterson is finally doing what many legal experts said he should have been doing from the start.

Peterson is “lawyering up.”

In contrast to his exclusive appearance last week on TODAY, Peterson, 53, left most of the talking to attorney Joel Brodsky during a second live interview on Monday. TODAY co-host Matt Lauer spent much of the interview trying to get Brodsky to let Peterson answer questions about his reaction to pathologist Michael Baden’s opinion that Peterson’s third wife, Kathleen Savio’s death in 2004 was a homicide staged to look like an accidental drowning in a bathtub.

Brodsky answered for Peterson, whom police have named a suspect in both the death of Savio and the Oct. 23 disappearance of the woman Peterson married soon after Savio died, 23-year-old Stacy Peterson. Brodsky said that Baden, who conducted a second autopsy last week at the request of Savio’s family, had made up his mind that the third Mrs. Peterson was murdered before he examined her remains on Friday.

“Dr. Baden, with all due respect to him, is a renowned pathologist, but he had a pre-existing opinion before he did the autopsy,” Brodsky said, pointing to interviews Baden granted a cable news network. “His conclusion was a self-fulfilling prophecy.”

After a back-and-forth with Brodsky about what Peterson would and would not be allowed to comment on, Lauer finally got to ask Peterson a question.

“Mr. Peterson, are you upset to learn that she may have been murdered?” he asked.

“Yes, I am upset to hear something like that. Very much so,” Peterson said.

Brodsky took issue with Baden’s statement on another program that people rarely die in bathtub accidents, saying statistically it is quite common.

“We do disagree with his finding. The first autopsy, from what I understand was very thorough. They concluded it was an accident,” Brodsky said.

‘Walking a fine line’
Noting that Brodsky was continuously blocking questions intended for Peterson, Lauer appeared a bit frustrated but was determined to get answers from him.

“It appears now that I’m going to be walking a fine line between what you want to tell me, Mr. Brodsky, and what Mr. Peterson is allowed to tell me,” Lauer said.

Peterson did say that there is clearly animosity between himself and his second wife, Vicki Connelly, but he was not aware of it until she spoke to the Chicago Tribune. Connelly said Peterson, who resigned last week from the Bolingbrook, Ill., Police Department, told her he could kill her and make it look like an accident.

“He has the experience, the knowledge, the means and the mind to do that,” Connelly told the newspaper.

Asked about the comment, Peterson said only, “I thought we were friends.”

Brodsky would not allow Peterson to confirm or deny the comment.

“People that are divorced are always making accusations and comments about each other. This is simply a comment by someone who went through a divorce with Mr. Peterson,” the lawyer said.

‘Kids need a mom’
Peterson, who is not charged with any crime, repeated his public plea last week for Stacy Peterson to return home to care for the couple’s two young children. He continues to believe that she ran off with another man, leaving him to answer questions about her strange and sudden disappearance.

“Are you worried about her, Mr. Peterson?” Lauer asked.

“Of course,” he replied. “Your wife leaves and I have kids at home, you are very much worried about her.”

“Although you think she is with another man, are you worried that she may never come back to be a mother to these children?” Lauer pressed, after wrestling with Peterson’s lawyer again to find a question he could answer.

“Yes, I am,” Peterson said.

“Kids need a mom … Basically, I’d like to have her publicly show herself now and clear all of this up.”


A county coroner’s report on the second autopsy of Kathleen Savio’s body is expected to be finalized in late December. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for New York City, has said publicly that his examination of Savio’s body on Friday leads him to conclude that she struggled with her killer and that the scene was staged to look like an accidental drowning.

“I’m convinced she was the victim of a murder. ‘Who done it’ is up to the police to resolve,” Baden told The Associated Press.

Attorneys, as a rule, do not like targets of criminal investigations to give interviews at all. Peterson, however, has said that he has been speaking to NBC News, in part, to get the media to stop camping outside of his home. But he does so at his own peril.

If he is charged, his public statements about the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, Savio’s death and his rocky relationship with both women could be used to impeach his credibility if he were to testify differently at a trial.

I was hoping that Ric might have answered my question about Steve. I guess he really can’t say too much, but it sure would be good if he could share more with us.

Anyway, I had a reason for asking, because I DID speak with a very close neighbor to Kathleen this past Saturday. I live 5-6 blocks away from DP, and I knew this woman lived closer to DP than I did, but until talking with her Saturday, I just didn’t realize HOW close. I know her from activities our children our involved in. She lives 4 houses away from Kathleen’s former home.

She says the neighbors ALL knew about the domestic violence calls and the problems in the Peterson home/marriage. It was common knowledge among the neighbors, but NO ONE stood up to help because of who Drew was. They were too afraid and didn’t want to make an enemy of this man. He was a police officer, they felt helpless to do anything.

Never thinking that it would result in murder, but that most neighbors suspected it was. Still today - most everyone in the neighborhood believes he is guilty of both Kathleen’s murder and Stacy’s probable murder BUT NO ONE WILL SAY ANYTHING BECAUSE OF THEIR FEAR OF HIM.

Lawyer for Peterson Expects No Charges

1 hour ago

CHICAGO (AP) — A lawyer representing a former police officer suspected in the disappearance of his wife said Monday he does not believe his client will face charges stemming from the investigation.

Speaking on NBC's "Today" show, lawyer Joel Brodsky also criticized the media for their coverage of Drew Peterson, who resigned as a Bolingbrook police sergeant after his 23-year-old fourth wife, Stacy, vanished three weeks ago.

Police have named the 53-year-old Peterson as a suspect in her disappearance, and authorities have called the case a possible homicide. He has denied any involvement in her disappearance.

"We do not expect to be charged in these cases," Brodsky said. "This is out of control. It's a rush to judgment fueled by people, by entertainment and people seem to want to be entertained by what's going on."

Brodsky, who began representing Peterson on Friday, declined to let his client respond to most questions during Monday's short interview.

Peterson, whose children with Stacy Peterson are 2 and 4, answered "yes" when asked if he was worried she may never return home. "Kids need a mom," he said.

Asked if he was worried about his wife, he said: "Of course. Your wife leaves you and I have kids at home, you're very much worried about her."

Peterson reiterated that he thinks his wife left him for another man. "I'd like to have her publicly show herself so we can clear all this up," said Peterson, who has older children from an earlier marriage.

Stacy Peterson, who was studying nursing at a junior college, disappeared from the couple's suburban Chicago home Oct. 28. Volunteers have been canvassing fields, lakes and construction sites near the family's Bolingbrook house, but have found no traces of the woman.

Still, the investigation into her disappearance caused prosecutors to reopen the investigation into the death of Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, whose body was found in a bathtub in 2004.

At the time, authorities ruled her death an accidental drowning, but investigators exhumed her body last week at the request of a prosecutor, who has said after examining evidence he believes her death was a homicide staged to look like an accident.

A pathologist who conducted another autopsy on Savio's body for her family said last week he believes the woman was murdered.

Peterson has also denied any role in Savio's death. He was asked Monday for his reaction to speculation that Savio was murdered. "Yes, I'm upset to hear something like that said. Very much so," he said.

 MumInOhio:

Could you repost a small clip of the dating bit you wrote to oldcrabby?  I couldn't find it.  I was interested to see it also.  I went back and found the long Nancy Grace transcript you posted, but couldn't see this bit.  I guess because he covered up her body so well, whatever horrible thing he did to it, he is so super confident it won't be found.

It is astounding that he terrified the neighborhood so bad according to greta's words posted by klaasend that the whole neighborhood knew of the domestic violence but was too afraid of the police officer husband.  That is toooooo scarey!  Yikes!  A whole neighborhood in fear of a police officer.

Also, does it mean anything when he uses refers to himself not in the first person - he keeps distancing himself, right?  When he says, "you would be upset" instead of "I was very upset."   Also, again, his body language lacks any emotion or showing of anyone being upset.  Seems to act like it is just everyday someone disappears off the face of the earth.
These women stayed so long with him.   Jeeeeeeez.  the poor kids. :-x

Woman's body found in vacant lot in Harvey
By Jason Meisner

Tribune staff reporter

7:37 AM CST, November 19, 2007

 The body of an unidentified woman was found overnight in a vacant lot in south suburban Harvey, authorities said.

The partially clothed body was discovered Sunday evening in the 15000 block of Maplewood Avenue, according to a Cook County medical examiner's office spokesman. Investigators were able to determine the body is that of a Caucasian woman but no approximate age was available.

She is not believed to be connected to any of the recent well-publicized missing persons cases.

The woman was pronounced dead at 7:25 p.m. Sunday at the scene, the spokesman said. An autopsy is scheduled for this morning.

The body appeared to have been chewed by animals before it was found but no other trauma was evident, authorities said.

Harvey police were not immediately available for comment.

Peterson search takes break;
Effort to resume after Thanksgiving, family friend says
 
By Brandi Watters and Karoun Demirjian, Chicago Tribune. Brandi Watters is a freelance reporter; Karoun Demirjian is a Tribune staff reporter. Tribune wire services contributed to this report.
 

For three weeks, volunteers have combed the landscape of the southwest suburbs looking for 23-year-old Stacy Peterson, but the search will be put on hold this week for Thanksgiving.

Roy Taylor, a family friend helping to lead the effort, said Sunday that searchers will continue to gather information, review maps of the area and coordinate a search planned for the weekend after Thanksgiving. Those who wish to continue looking for the missing mother of two are welcome to do so, Taylor added.

"We have volunteers that want to search, so we're not discouraging them ... but we can't be liable if they're on someone's property or something," he said.

Peterson was last seen Oct. 28, and her husband, former Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, has been named a suspect in her disappearance. The disappearance prompted investigators to re-examine the mysterious 2004 drowning of Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio.

Savio's body was exhumed last week, but official autopsy results have not yet been revealed. Her death was originally ruled an accident.

An independent autopsy, requested by Savio's family and conducted by former New York City chief medical examiner Michael Baden on Friday, reached the conclusion that Savio died after a struggle, and that her body was placed in the bathtub where she was found.

On Sunday, Drew Peterson's attorney Joel Brodsky questioned the legitimacy of Baden's examination.

"The results of Dr. Baden's autopsy on Ms. Savio do not surprise us, not because we believe they are accurate, but only because Dr. Baden had indicated over a week before he had performed the autopsy that he believed Kathleen's death was not an accident," Brodsky said in a statement.

Drew Peterson, who retired last week after 29 years at the Bolingbrook Police Department, has repeatedly denied he had anything to do with Stacy Peterson's disappearance and says she left him for another man.

On Monday morning, he is set to make his second appearance on NBC's "Today" show, producers said.

On Sunday, Stacy Peterson's family members reacted to reports that she had called an old friend, Scott Rossetto of Shorewood, three weeks before her disappearance.

"It almost sounded like they were making it sound like he was a romantic interest. I don't know how anybody is automatically assumed to be a romantic interest just because someone makes a phone call," said Kerry Simmons, Stacy Peterson's stepsister.

Simmons said the missing woman was planning to leave her husband, but not for another man.

"She was ready to do this on her own. She had contacted an attorney and [was trying to] find a place to go with the kids," Simmons said. "She wanted to make sure she could get out with the kids so that they would be safe and not have him come after her."

Despite her worries, Simmons said the search will continue.

"I don't think we get discouraged, but everybody's getting tired, that's for sure," Simmons said.

From Nancy Grace transcripts..11/8/2007

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: How in the world did he get away with dating a 17-year-old girl? It is illegal in Illinois. If an 18-year-old boy is caught having sex with a 17-year-old girl, he is arrested and then has to register a sex offender. How did he get away with it?

LALAMA: That`s a good question. But Joe Hosey from "The Herald News," my understanding is he claims he went to the department, said, I have a 17-year-old girlfriend, and they said, No problem, right?

JOE HOSEY, "HERALD NEWS": I don`t think he necessarily went to the department. The department found out about it, and they went to the state`s attorney`s office, he says, and he was given an opinion that it was OK. The problem -- she was 17, he was 47. That`s legal unless he`s in a position of authority. The department was saying as a police officer, he`s in a position of authority, but apparently, the state`s attorney`s office felt otherwise.
      ------------------------------------------------------------------

Seems like the States Attorney's office didn't do their job on this one. They had reason to look at him on two separate occasions!

[then has to register a sex offender. How did he get away with it?

The problem -- she was 17, he was 47. That`s legal unless he`s in a position of authority. The department was saying as a police officer, he`s in a position of authority, but apparently, the state`s attorney`s office felt otherwise.
     
Ok, some one please explain to me how it is legal if your 47 dating a 17 year old, but illegal for an 18 year old?

And is a policeman not a person "in authority" 

I am confused?

San- why would he say IT'S?  Why didn't he say SHE's not here. 

Keep talking Drew, you are digging yourself deeper every time you open your mouth.

Exactly Klaas.  Klaas do you know if he is getting paid for these interviews that he did with the Today Show.

It's = Body.

Not sure about Today or Fox, I don't think he gets paid for the show, only lodging and transportation.  He did an interview today in his back yard with People Magazine and I'm sure they do pay.

Jennifer - it doesn't make sense to me either.
