Just now on Nancy Grace - apparently one of the jurors for Kathy Savio’s inquest confirmed that the jurors were not given the option to call her death *undetermined* - only natural, homicide, suicide or accident.

The family spokesperson for either Savio or Stacy (not sure) said that she could not imagine Drew Peterson confiding in a *teenager* that he was responsible for Kathy’s death.

It is possible that Stacy may have, over time, found out more about Kathy’s death and was too scared to face the truth. Not so much *covering* for that monster, but not confiding in anyone. If she learned the truth perhaps she recorded her thoughts on paper or a computer.

Time will tell concerning Stacy I suppose.
But one thing that is crystal clear is that this man’s co-officers certainly knew this was a homicide and they covered for him.

Because they are the ones with authority - they should be the ones facing the music and being held accountable right about now.

Whether the young naive teenager knew anything seems secondary.

Interesting discussion on why, if Drew Peterson has been called a *suspect* he has not been arrested - might he flee jurisdiction - and what about endangering the children who is keeping isolated from other family members??

Theory is that he is not a flight risk - that the Grand Jury will soon hand down an indictment and he will then be arrested. Law enforcement has him in a vice-grip and are watching & waiting for him to slip up.

Family member is going to look into how to get custody of children away from Peterson.

“””But one thing that is crystal clear is that this man’s co-officers certainly knew this was a homicide and they covered for him.”””

The neighbor who went with Peterson & the locksmith - the guy who actually found Kathy in the bathtub - still thinks it was an accident...Peterson found the perfect useful idiot!!!!!

Don’t know that an ambulance & EMT were called - but you are correct about the first response police officers - they should have secured the *crime scene* and processed evidence. I am not sure anything of that nature was done.
Then, the City Medical Examiner and the Coroner - were complicit in the *good old boy* approach....by not fully informing Jury members on the facts, the science or the law.

Several heads should roll - you are absolutely correct!!!

The possibility has been raised that Peterson could have hired a hit-man - he had access to plenty of money from Kathy’s death, as guardian of their children who she named as beneficiary in her $1million life ins. policy.

He could have also had help with Stacy’s disappearing - he claimed she took $25,000(?) in cash from a home-safe. That may have been the kill-for-hire money. That way, if the hit-man were to be picked up, the money was *stolen* and Peterson is in the clear!

I know that’s a ludicrous scenario, but Peterson is a sociopath, not a scientist.

It really does matter who you are and what your local connections are.

I am still shocked and disgusted with many people in our local community who are willing to “overlook” our local OJ’s little problem with murder simply because he funds local sports programs and donates to local charities.

If his missing wife’s family had more money and influence you can bet these same people wouldn’t be so forgiving.

I am amazed when seemingly good decent people will try to justify their defense of a wife beater and wife killer.

OK..rant over (for now :) )

It has to do with some sort of leftover feudal genes - needing a Royal or an aristocratic class to worship.

As recently as the 20th Century, we witnessed the phenomenon in this Republic - with the Royal Kennedys - and- with the Hollywood pseudo-aristocracy.

We have clearly forgotten the 2nd Commandment:

*Thou shall have no other Gods before me*

I’ve heard nothing about wives #1 and #2 except that he has 2 kids by each wife for a total of 8. One of the male adult kids (Eric?) disowned him around the time wife #3 died.

I think cops (from another jurisdiction!) need to look into any missing former girlfriend’s of this guy. He just might turn out to be a serial killer.

I believe I heard the neighbor identify himself as Peterson’s friend. He has been helping him out in various ways and swears that he trusts Peterson’s account of things. So he’s more than a useful idiot neighbor. He has hitched his wagon to Peterson’s reputation and wants to back that up in order to make himself look credible. Otherwise, he would have taken the more obvious approach of wanting to know what exactly happened to Kathy, because the whole scene was so bizarre and incomprehensible.

Peterson certainly knew how to *work* that neighbor. He pulled up in a police car and asked for his help.

Not sure anyone would refuse, or be suspicious - in fact the neighbor/friend is still unable to accept that he was *used* by Peterson.

There was another person in the house - Stacy’s best friend. Would like to hear her account as well. The guy was careful not to release her name during that interview.

On the matter of wives #1& #2 - it was stated that the authorities had interviewed *all relevant people* and we were to assume that included the former wives.

Thanks for reinforcing the statement by one family member that Peterson fathered eight children. Only six have been identified - perhaps he has two illegitimate children by other women!!!!!!! Like the Cutts creep!

Good local coverage here:
http://wgntv.trb.com/

especially comments from inquest jurors; “a police officer was on the jury who said that Drew Peterson is a great guy and would never....”

It had a huge influence on the outcome..Walter James, one of the jurors said he had a lot of questions about a gash in Kathy’s neck and where did the blood go?

I have to warn you - the format is very confusing - nothing like FReeRepublic topics, pings and FReepmail.
No continuity, but the comments are quite good and civilized.

We could still post updates here- there are a few of us still posting new information.

http://cbs2chicago.com/local/drew.peterson.stacy.2.564863.html BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― A source tells CBS 2 sister station WBBM Newsradio 780 that search teams are investigating something they found 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 that resemblked or what was 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. Texas Equusearch founder and head Tim Miller would not say whether the discovery was believed to be a shallow grave or something else, or elaborate otherwise on what it was. Miller would not say exactly where the discovery was made, but said it was not in the Green Valley Forest Preserve near Naperville where teams had been searching earlier. 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.

False alarm!

Apparently someone buried their dog in a woodland grave.

From Fox News - Petersen is going after the lady neighbor.

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.

With the media camp growing outside his Bolingbrook home, Sgt. Drew Peterson took his case to Geraldo Rivera Saturday.

Off-camera, he insisted he had nothing to do with his wife’s disappearance and complained to the Fox Network broadcaster that stress caused by media coverage has caused him to lose 25 pounds.

“I’ve done nothing wrong,” Rivera quoted Peterson as saying. “I’ve been cooperating fully with police.”

Police on Friday, however, said Peterson hasn’t offered them any help in more than a week.

Except Peterson did not take his case to Geraldo - Geraldo pushed him.

There are just so many people to keep up with - I believe Equusearch has found two areas of interest and will show them to State LE for further investigation.

I hope they find her. The third wife’s death should never have been listed as an accident, same as Anna Nicole’s was no accident.

Questionable Behavior has a good blog on this case.

If and when they find Stacy’s body - Peterson is a goner!

I believe he asphyxiated Kathy in the toilet. Just enough water to suffocate her - water in her sinuses but not her lungs.

I have this gut feeling Peterson paid another pilot $25k to drop Stacy’s body over Lake Michigan. Probably a drug dealer acquaintance with a larger airplane. She’ll wash up on shore wearing a bikini and clutching her passport.

Well - so much for Greta’s blog - a lot of good people - but too many weirdos. A very primitive format - CyberBabylon.

Greta has adopted this case as her own - with several Fox colleagues...including Mark Fuhrman. She interviewed “Lisa” daughter of 2nd wife - step-daughter of DP - who was abusive to herself & her mother.

Will just watch from the bleachers;)

Would be interesting to hear more from the first two wives. DP’s stepdaughter stated that at least one of them is still scared of him. Also wish that Greta would cover Daniel’s inquest.
