Family: Woman feared for life
Missing Bolingbrook wife wanted divorce, her aunt says
Two days before she disappeared, the wife of a Bolingbrook police sergeant told her husband she wanted a divorce, the missing woman’s aunt said Thursday.
A day later, on Saturday, Stacy Peterson told her sister she feared for her life, said Suzan Robison, Stacy’s paternal aunt.
Sgt. Drew Peterson, Stacy’s husband, “was a very jealous, very controlling person,” Robison said. “He followed her. He tracked her with GPS on her cell phone, called her constantly.”
Family member Kerry Simmons said Stacy kept in the home a journal that contained notes about fights she had with her husband. “She documented everything,” Simmons said.
Charles Pelkie, Glasgow’s spokesman, said the warrants also gave police the authority to search a 2005 GMC sport-utility vehicle and a 2002 Pontiac coupe at Peterson’s home.
Peterson later told the Tribune the police took the computer and his guns.
at least five police divers entered a pond at Bolingbrook’s Clow International Airport, where a manager said police earlier this week tried unsuccessfully to review previous images from a Web cam. Federal Aviation Administration records indicate Drew Peterson is licensed to fly a plane, but manager Joe DePaulo said there were no records that Peterson had used the airport.
