xx Peterson "clearly" a suspect in wife's disappearan
« Reply #1 on: Nov 9th, 2007, 8:09pm »

By Matthew Walberg | Tribune staff reporter


On the same day a judge ordered the exhumation of the body of his third wife, Bolingbrook Police Sgt. Drew Peterson was named a suspect in the disappearance of his 23-year-old fourth wife, who has been missing for nearly two weeks.

"I would say right now that Drew Peterson has gone from being a person of interest to clearly being a suspect," in the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, Illinois State Police Capt. Carl Dobrich said during a news conference. "I would say this case has shifted from a missing-person case to a possible homicide case."

Earlier today, Will County Judge Daniel J. Rozak granted a petition to exhume the body of Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio.
Savio, 40, was divorced from Peterson when she was found dead in her bathtub in what was ruled an accidental death in 2004.

Will County State's Atty. James Glasgow said Savio's death had "signs indicating it was a homicide."

In the exhumation petition, prosecutors said a review showed "in part that the 1-inch gash on the back of Savio's head did not render her unconscious, which would have been necessary for her to accidentally drown in the bathtub," according to the petition.

It also states that Savio's head wound would have bled profusely, but that blood evidence in the tub was inconsistent with accidental drowning followed by water slowly leaking out of the tub. "[This] evidence is consistent with the 'staging' of an accident to conceal a homicide," the petition says.

The petition notes that Savio's family fully supports the exhumation. It also noted that Coroner Patrick O'Neil suggested the exhumation.

Bolingbrook police also said today that they had relieved Peterson of duty and suspended him without pay, pending the completion of an internal-affairs investigation.

His name was not mentioned in the exhumation petition. Peterson, 53, said last week that his ex-wife's death was an accident and that he had nothing to do with it.

Savio was found dead just weeks before a settlement of a divorce with her husband was to be finalized.

During their investigation into Stacy Peterson's disappearance, Dobrich said the last time her husband was cooperative with police was when they first executed a search warrant at the couple's Bolingbrook home last week.

Today, volunteer group Texas EquuSearch continued looking for any sign of Stacy Peterson, with more than 80 people helping out, according to Gary Peterson, who is coordinating the search for EquuSearch.

He said volunteers were spread around the area, from Whalon Lake Dog Park in south Naperville, to areas near Rock Lake near Romeoville, to a grassy area near the Leows theater off Interstate Highway 55 in Woodridge, and in Yorkville in Kendall County, where volunteers included four people on horseback.

xx Missing Illinois Mom's Neighbor Reports Cop-Husban
« Reply #3 on: Nov 10th, 2007, 7:57pm »

BOLINGBROOK, Ill. ó A neighbor of an missing Illinois woman filed a police report against the woman's husband and recalled seeing the mother of two sitting at the end of her driveway in tears a week before she disappeared, she told FOX News.

"íHe's all packed up and I want him to go,í" Stacy Peterson reportedly said, according to neighbor Sharon Bychowski. Six boxes allegedly filled with Drew Petersonís belongings sat in the coupleís open garage, Bychowski said.

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. Ö I want you.í"

Bychowski, who at times baby-sits the Petersonsí 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 Petersonís disappearance.

On Saturday, Drew Petersonís mother defended him in a telephone interview with FOX News.

"He didnít do anything," Betty Morphey said. In response to a question about Drew Petersonís 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 Bolingbrookís 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 Petersonís fellow officers. "They turn their back on him. I find that very disrespectful."

Police said they planned to exhume the body of Drew Petersonís 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.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

xx Stacy's Uncle: 'Today' Interview Was To Get Lawyer
« Reply #4 on: Nov 15th, 2007, 4:11pm »

Drew Peterson flew to New York to appear on the morning news show and share his side of the stories of his missing fourth wife and the death of his third wife, whose body was exhumed Wednesday morning as part of an ongoing investigation.

Peterson has been named as a suspect in the 2004 death of Kathleen Savio, and a second autopsy is to be performed on her body.

On Thursday, Stacy Peterson's uncle, Kyle Toutges, spoke with NBC5's Dick Johnson and Zoraida Sambolin about his impressions of the Today Show interview.
"I didn't believe it," he said of Drew Peterson's appearance.

Peterson told Matt Lauer that his wife, Stacy, had left him for another man.

Toutges said that Stacy Peterson's family does not believe that the 23-year-old would have left her children for any reason.

"She loved her kids," he said. "She adopted Drew's kids from a previous marriage. She took care of all those kids."

When Johnson asked Toutges why Drew Peterson, who has refused to talk to anyone in the local media about his wife's disappearance, would suddenly decide to give an interview on national television, Stacy Peterson's uncle said, "He needs a lawyer."

In fact, Peterson made a plea for a lawyer during the interview with Lauer, saying that it would cost him thousands of dollars to defend himself against allegations, should he be brought to trial


"That (the lawyer) and to try to put on that he didn't do anything. Why is he afraid of the media if he didn't do anything?" Toutges said.

"If she ran away with another guy, (Drew Peterson) would know where that guy is, his shoe size, everything about this man. He's a police officer ... he would know," the uncle said. "That girl had no time to find a man that she would leave her kids for."

He said there was no indication to any family members that Stacy Peterson had met someone new.

Toutges said that searchers intend to keep looking for his niece until they find her.

xx Grand Jury Probes Death of Ex-Cop's Wife
« Reply #5 on: Nov 16th, 2007, 8:34pm »

By DON BABWIN

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) ó Authorities searching for a former police officer's wife plan to question a man who says he was there when the officer first saw the body of his previous wife, the man said Friday.

Steve Carcerano, a friend of Kathleen Savio's ex-husband Drew Peterson, said he was called by a grand jury looking into Savio's death and is to testify next week. Illinois State Police have said Peterson's brother, Paul, also was subpoenaed by a grand jury.

Investigators initially said Savio's death was an accidental drowning when she was found in the bathtub three years ago. But now, with Peterson's fourth wife missing for more than two weeks, authorities are re-examining the circumstances of Savio's death.

Her body was exhumed this week at the request of Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow, who has said after examining evidence he believes her death was a homicide staged to look like an accident.

When Peterson first saw Savio's body, he was obviously surprised and distraught, Carcerano said.

"He checked her pulse right away to see if she was dead or alive. Then he was, 'Oh my god, what am I gonna tell my kids? What am I gonna tell my kids?'" Carcerano said.

Peterson, 53, who resigned this week as a Bolingbrook police sergeant, has not been named a suspect in Savio's death. But he is a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth and current wife, Stacy, who was last seen Oct. 28 and whose case authorities have called a possible homicide.

Drew Peterson has an unlisted number. He has denied any involvement in either case and said he believes his 23-year-old wife left him for another man and is alive.

Vicki Connolly, Peterson's second wife, told the Chicago Tribune that during their marriage an increasingly controlling Peterson hit her and told her he could kill her and make it look like an accident.

Connolly told the Tribune she did not believe Peterson would ever kill her, but confided in Bolingbrook police officers whom she considered friends.

"So they would know he said these things to me," Connolly told the Tribune.

The husband of Peterson's first wife told WGN-TV on Wednesday his wife hasn't talked to Peterson in more than 10 years. But he said his wife never has mentioned Peterson being violent or threatening.

"She didn't have any of that kind of problem with him that long ago," said Dave Brown.

Documents released by Savio's family show she had accused Peterson of once stealing her car while she was in church with one of her children. According to one letter the family said was sent to Will County prosecutors in November 2002, she also accused Peterson of beating her a number of times so severely she "ended up in the emergency room."

She also described in the letter one time she believed he would kill her: "He pulled out his knife that he kept around his leg and brought it to my neck."

Charles Pelkie, a spokesman for the Will County State's Attorney's Office, said it remains unclear if that letter ever came to the office. He said it was not in the files Glasgow read when he began reinvestigating Savio's drowning.

But many allegations in the letter are consistent with those Savio made in an order of protection filed against Drew Peterson in 2002, as well as accounts given by her family members.

Carcerano said he never once saw Peterson strike or shout at his wife in anger, though he said he saw Savio attack Peterson.

"I've seen her slap him in the face right in front of me, seen her spit in his face and chasing him around with an extension cord, hitting him with it," Carcerano said.

Attorney Fred Morelli, who once represented Peterson, said he never heard the knife claims about his former client.

"That's the first I've heard of that," Morelli said. "That's crazy. ... (Peterson) was a very pleasant, personable fellow. Other than that, I don't know."

xx Ex-Cop's Lawyer Disputes Autopsy Report
« Reply #6 on: Nov 18th, 2007, 7:59pm »

By ASHLEY M. HEHER

CHICAGO (AP) ó An attorney for a former police officer suspected in the disappearance of his current wife disputed Sunday a renowned pathologist's recent conclusion that one of the man's previous wives had been killed, not accidentally drowned.

The circumstances of how Drew Peterson's third wife died in 2004 has become part of the investigation into the former police sergeant's missing wife, Stacy Peterson, a 23-year-old mother of two who has been missing since Oct. 28. Police have named her 53-year-old husband as a suspect in her disappearance, and authorities have called the case a possible homicide.

The body of Drew Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, was exhumed from a suburban Chicago cemetery 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. An official autopsy was conducted but the results will not be available for days.

At the request of Savio's family, Michael Baden, a former New York City chief medical examiner, conducted another autopsy on the woman's remains on Friday, and said he believed the 40-year-old's death was not an accident, as a previous autopsy indicated. He concluded she died after a struggle, and her body was placed in the bathtub where she was found.

Drew Peterson's attorney questioned the legitimacy of Baden's work.

"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," lawyer Joel Brodsky said in a statement Sunday.

Drew Peterson, who resigned last week from the Bolingbrook police force, has not been named a suspect in the death of Savio, from whom he was divorced. He has denied any involvement in either case and said he believes his wife left him for another man and is alive.

His attorney also questioned a financial arrangement between the forensic investigator and Fox News, which paid to fly Baden to Chicago, where he conducted the autopsy for Savio's family.

Baden, who is often associated with high-profile cases including as a defense witness in music producer Phil Spector's murder trial this summer, said he performed Savio's autopsy for free.

"All we wish to say is that Kathleen's death should not be a source of entertainment," Brodsky said.

In an interview Sunday with The Associated Press, Baden said his initial conclusion that Savio was slain was based on his review of her case. "They should have called it a homicide in the first place," he said.

He also defended his conclusion from the autopsy, saying it was not influenced by his previous opinion or his position as a paid commentator on Fox News.

"I had a pre-existing opinion before I did the exhumation. I did. But that's why exhumations are done, to make sure the pre-existing opinions are correct," he said. "The findings are independent."

Baden is a regular contributor to "On The Record with Greta Van Susteren," Fox News spokeswoman Diana Rocco said. Fox News paid for his trip to Chicago in order for Baden to appear as a guest on the show that evening, she said.

His other former wives have cast contrasting portraits of him, saying he could be charming and supportive, then controlling and abusive.

Speaking publicly for the first time, Peterson's first wife, Carol Brown, told the Chicago Tribune for a story published Saturday night that he never threatened or abused her during their six-year marriage. But she said he could be controlling, and while she was pregnant she found out he 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," she said.

xx Search for missing woman resumes, hampered by cold
« Reply #7 on: Nov 25th, 2007, 12:08pm »

Tribune staff report


The family of Stacy Peterson searched for the missing woman again Saturday, but the cold weather made the outdoor hunt more difficult.

About 75 people scoured a park near Peterson's Bolingbrook home, but the brush was thick and had ice in some patches, said Beverly Baridon, 53, a volunteer from Wheaton.

"It was cold and we all had runny noses, but everyone wants to find Stacy and bring her home," Baridon said.
The group started at 9 a.m. at the Bolingbrook Recreation and Aquatic Complex at 200 S. Lindsey Lane and by the afternoon had called off the search without finding anything.

The FBI is expected to join the search for the missing mother of two early this week, opening the possibility of "technical assistance of the U.S. Navy" if needed, officials said Friday.

Investigators asked the federal agency for help in providing manpower and to lend its expertise, if required.

Peterson disappeared Oct. 28. Her husband, former Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, has been named a suspect.

Investigators also recently exhumed the body of Drew Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, to perform a new autopsy and see whether there was evidence of a homicide. Savio's death had been ruled accidental at the time.

Peterson, 53, has denied involvement in both cases.

xx Bank Records: Drew Peterson Funneled $250G
« Reply #8 on: Dec 15th, 2007, 9:24pm »

BOLINGBROOK, Ill. ó Ex-police sergeant Drew Peterson transferred nearly a quarter of a million dollars to his son in the weeks after the disappearance of his wife, Stacy Peterson, in November, MyFoxChicago.com reports.

Click here for the video report at MyFoxChicago.com.

Prosecutors subpoenaed bank records that show Drew Peterson funneled the money to his son, Steve Peterson, an Oak Brook, Ill., police officer, after Stacy Peterson was reported missing on Oct. 28.

Steve Peterson twice has testified before a grand jury investigating the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, 23, a mother of two, but declined to comment on the financial transactions.

Sources said Drew Peterson, 58, transferred to Steve Peterson nearly $250,000 from several bank accounts, including joint accounts he held with his wife. He reportedly wrote as many as six checks, with one for more than $150,000, investigators said.

Drew Peterson declined to comment but his attorney, Joel Brodsky, said, "Iím sure if thatís true, and I donít even know whether or not it is, Iím sure that there are legitimate reasons for it."

One legal expert said the former Bolingbrook, Ill., police sergeant may be trying to protect his assets in case he is sued.

The sister of Kathleen Savio, Drew Petersonís third wife who was found dead in an empty bathtub, said the family is considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Drew Peterson, who was in the process of divorcing Savio at the time of her death in 2004.

Savioís death was ruled an accident, but her body was exhumed after new questions surfaced during the investigation into Stacy Petersonís disappearance.

A second autopsy was performed and new evidence suggests she may have been murdered, authorities said.

State police also are seeking a new search warrant for additional cell phone records relating to Drew Peterson.

"When you get into a grand jury investigation where theyíre going over the same area two and three times, that to me Ö shows you that they donít have anything or what they have is extremely confusing and contradictory," Brodsky said.

Brodsky said he is not worried about what is found on the records.

Stacy Peterson was reported missing after she failed to show up at a friend's house. Drew Peterson claims she left him for another man, but Stacy Peterson's family says she would never leave her children behind.

xx Attorney: New Photos Might Be of Missing Woman Sta
« Reply #9 on: Feb 3rd, 2008, 6:43pm »

An attorney for Drew Peterson has turned over new photos exclusively to FOX News that he says might be of Peterson's missing fourth wife Stacy.

The lawyer told FOX News' John Gibson and Heather Nauert of "The Big Story" that he got the pictures from a retired police officer who said he saw Stacy Peterson in Thailand.

Drew Peterson says he can't be 100 percent sure that the photos are of his missing wife, who vanished in October and is presumed dead. Peterson is a prime suspect in her disappearance.

Also Thursday, Peterson, a former Illinois police sergeant, said he wanted to divorce Stacy. He has insisted that his wife is alive but ran off with another man.

Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, died under mysterious circumstances in 2004, when she was found in a bathtub. Her body was exhumed for further forensic analysis, and officials have reclassified her death as a "homicide staged to look like an accident."
