That was part of the sister’s interview with Greta. It seems the Sgt. was flagrant about his affair with the teenager - his police officer colleagues thought it was a hoot!

What gives in the Bolingbrook community? Have to believe there are many skeletons in closets in that cr*ppy place.

False alarm on the Jeep - his 2 cars were already locked & loaded.

Trace Gallagher reports an airplane tarp was removed from the drainage pond.

Stacy’s sister’s timeline is compelling. Her interview and Kathy’s sister’s(3rd wife)interview are here (scroll down right column)

Is anyone watching Greta?

The sister’s friend Bruce was rather vague about the *painting* plans and it’s a little surprising that the husband would have allowed Stacy to participate in a *painting party* with another man...based on the claim that he watched her 24/7.

Stalking husband just reinforced by an anonymous friend who Greta just interviewed. (Looks like the next door neighbor).

Back to #3’s autopsy.

Drew Peterson’s wife Kathy #3 autopsy reviewed by Dr. Michael Baden.

Body showed bloody hair, bruising, lacerations. No alcohol or drugs. Normal heart & brain. No way a healthy young woman should have drowned.

Baden says, not an accident and should not have been described as such. New investigation should include a look at the medical examiner and the coroner!!!!!!

I love Dr. Baden;)

...why would a woman choose to be wife #4...

Well, I'm guessing she was no more than 20 when she was "naively thrilled" that this older man, a police sergeant, found her attractive. In other words, she hadn't yet gained the caution and wisdom which should come with adulthood. Assuming Tracy knew he'd been married three times before AND that wife #3 "drowned" in the bathtub, it would be interesting to know why she hooked up with him.

Lacy Peterson...Tracy Peterson. Strange.

I know this is a serious subject...(hope Stacey Peterson is hiding out trying to get away from her creepy husband)...BUT everytime I see that open mouthed, arched-eyebrow photo of Ms. Grace...I just think she is in her ‘Def-Com 4’ mode. Nanc probably hyperventalated on this case...

I dunno if he did it or not but she almost has the big eyed look of the “runaway bride” of a while back. As I recall the boyfriend was a prime suspect off the get go only to find out well, she done runned away.

According to info on this thread, she was 16 or 17 when he met her at a hotel she worked at (and he was working security).

Anyway, he was still married to wifey #3 and Stacey ends up pregnant with his child at 17 years old.

My guess is he caught her stealing or doing drugs and threatened to turn her in if she didn’t have sex with him.

Then, when she turned up pregnant, she needed someone to provide, and turned to him.

So, he gets rid of wifey #3, because she was already sick of him.

That is the ‘smell’ of things that I am getting from reading all the info on this case, so far.

No further mention of *a large item being moved out of the Peterson hom*

But Mark Fuhrman is obviously going to be a reporter on this case.

Jamie Colby repeated the statement that Drew Peterson made to her *he went to the airport to put a sticker on his plane* Much like Scott Peterson - he has to explain why he was at the airport if any witnesses show up!!!!

I believe Peterson and his buddy, Rick Sims - took a dead Stacy to the airport - were probably planning to drop her over a large body of water - but the plane didn’t have fuel or had problems...so they drove her to the woods and buried her.

He left the kids at home alone (Stacy’s sister saw them there and no cars in the driveway at 11:00 pm.)
At 2:30 a.m. next morning Stacy saw both cars back at the house.

Just checking to see if any updates...very astute observations you have made. I wondered (for a moment) why a 17 y/o would be attracted to someone so much older...than it dawned on me (too) that as a cop, he could use his position (looking the other way on drugs or maybe a trumped up theft allegation at the motel) in exchange for sexual favors (that resulted in the pregnancy).

From their photo together...he just looks creepy w/her.

...she was 16 or 17...

If so, I'm not amazed. Is there some information about her background that could possibly explain her involvement with a guy old enough to be her father?

While the law says, "innocent until proven guilty", I don't think individuals are bound by that law. I think the majority who have read about this case believe her husband killed her, to put it bluntly.

Do I get a prize for saying hubby is guilty? I’m sure someone will be along soon to argue with me...

Just the local media in Chicago. There were 5 of them on the weekly PBS Friday night talk show (Chicago Tonight, the Week in Review), and they all thought that since Fox News was covering this story, there was nothing to it and, "how could a police officer be involved in something like this?"

So, just like the local PD needed somebody else to do the investigation, the local media needs somebody to investigate the corruption that led to this story. In Chicago, the media is usually part of the corruption.

Oh, how we miss Mike Royko!

‘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.

Cesare has known Stacy since she was a young girl, as he dated her older sister Tina in the 1990s. The two kept in touch after Tina died last year of colon cancer.

Cesare last saw Stacy two months ago when she surprised him at work with a picture album of her sister’s from when the two had dated.

“I couldn’t imagine this family going through any more tragedy,” he said. “They’ve been through plenty.”

Stacy’s mother disappeared a decade ago, seemingly without a trace. And before that, Stacy lost two sisters, one in a house fire and another to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, according to a family friend. A brother of Stacy’s has continuing legal troubles.

Those childhood hardships may have led Stacy to marry a man 30 years her senior.

“It was the picture of a controlling older man and I was always very cautious of it because this is a guy you don’t want to mess with, so I always kept my distance,” Cesare said.

Drew Peterson made it easy for Cesare to keep his distance because Stacy’s husband limited her phone use.

“Don’t worry about calling my cell anymore, or the house phone. I have talked with Drew, so no worries,” Stacy wrote in an e-mail to Cesare.

“I don’t think she ever had time to get away from him,” he said.

According to Cesare, this included when her sister battled cancer in a downstate hospital.

“I tried to arrange to drive Stacy to see her sister,” he said. “We were going to go for the day and would be back that night but her husband wouldn’t let her go with me.

“It didn’t make sense because we were going to see her sister and he wouldn’t let her go.”

Great finds Maggief.

Does anyone know if the State Police searched the plane that Drew Peterson owns? Check flight records?

I think that plane is important - Drew Peterson’s stupid statement that Stacy was at the airport - leaving with a boyfriend is beyond sociopathic lying!

I doubt that the first two wives has as much of a problem with him.

He might have been an upstanding, eager policeman.

Being a cop is hard. Being a cop’s wife is no picnic.

Sooner or later the years of being ‘on the beat’ take their toll.

Midlife crisis just adds to that. You decide to trade your 40-year old in for two 20-year olds.

And, you don’t have to depend on money or looks, since you have a badge. You can ‘get’ anything you want.... you are a cop. You have power....

And when things go wrong, it’s easier for you to have your brothers squelch it.

She was 17 when he was over forty. She may have even been 16 when they first had sex. They got married when she was 17 and pregnant.

So,.... that’s rape (sex with a minor), is it not? Was she not underage, or is my math bad?

[EDITORS NOTE: We get many comments regarding Florida and our posting of the age of consent as 18. You should understand that our definition of “age of legal consent” is the age at which a person may consent to sexual contact with ANY person not in a position of authority, etc. Using our definition, the age of consent in Florida is 18.

According to a family member - *his police buddies knew*. That whole department needs cleaning out!!!

So I guess she wasn't thrilled with the ring hubby gave her as he claimed. This bozo is SUCH a bad liar.

Their two sons inherited the $1 million life insurance policy Peterson held on his ex-wife, court records indicate.

Maybe it's me, but I'd be concerned if somebody took out a million dollar policy on me. Especially if that person was beating me.

Even though the 3rd wife changed the beneficiary from hubby to children, on the $1million life insurance policy - (maybe $2million for accidental death) Daddy Drew probably was appointed guardian of that money.

Perhaps he is able to take child support out of their inheritance.

How much do you suppose he spent on that aircraft???

It’s an unusual case - murder without a body.

It was supposed to be featured on this past sat’s 48 hrs (A Time To Kill)but got delayed until the 10th because of the football game.

They got a guilty verdict in May, that was just tossed by the judge this past fri.
It will be at least a year before a new trial.

AMW - I thought - deals mostly with locating fugitives?

We know who did it - it just looks like they’re going to have to come up with more evidence in this coming year to seal the deal.
Since Fuhrman seems to be good about finding weaknesses in investigations - or spotting things that may have been overlooked before, I thought he might be good for this.

Those of us who are obsessed with the Anna Nicole Smith and Daniel W.Smith deaths(murders) wondered how to contact Mark Fuhrman - believing he was probably writing a book.

This might offer a way to contact him:

If there is going to be a retrial - he might be interested.

Thank you! I’ll give it a try.
Yes...the DA is appealing the judge’s recent decision, and that will take approx 9 months alone.
It does look very likely there will be a retrial sometime next year.
