Drew Peterson: It's 'very lonely' without Stacy
CNN ^ | March 24, 2008 | Associated Press

BOLINGBROOK, Illinois (AP) -- Jobless and with no prospects, Drew Peterson spends his days taking care of his four children: cooking meals, washing clothes, helping with homework. All the while, he does so knowing that most of the world believes he killed his last two wives.

Nearly five months have passed since Stacy Peterson vanished from the couple's home in this Chicago suburb.

Peterson is a suspect in her disappearance, and authorities are also trying to determine if he had any role in the 2004 death of his ex-wife.

The 54-year-old former police officer knows that he could be locked up anytime, and that is part of why he allowed The Associated Press into his home for an exclusive interview.

Oh Yeah ... so I guess killing her wasn’t such a good idea ...

Just when she “disappears,” the magic hamper, the magic oven and the magic kids’ chaufer all break down at once. What are the odds?

If he's so lonely, why isn't he looking for her?

Guess that’s why he put himself out there as an eligible bachelor so quick. I feel for those kids, though.

I can’t even imagine what they’re going through! The older ones have to KNOW that their dad’s a wife/mother slaughterer. I’d be asking for grandma & grandpa!

“It’s very lonely without Stacy”

This guy is either the unluckiest joker alive when it comes to women, -OR- the guilt inside him is eventually going to drive him to confess, or to off himself.

The kids need prayers, since I doubt their Mom is coming back.

He’s either innocent, or totally shameless.

Or just kill the SOB in his sleep. I’ll bet he keeps his bedroom door locked. Come to think of it, if I were one of the kids, I’d keep my bedroom door locked, too.

I'll bet he thinks the kids have imbibed in his kool-aid...but they can't be that stupid.

I had thought I saw something recently where they arrested him. Did they just take him in and then later release him?

As for his sleeping habits, I believe he’s an ex-cop, he’s probably sleeping with a pistol within hands reach.

On the same par as this guy:

Guess it is time to get another wife, and this time, think before you murder, it gets real old being mommie too.

"the guilt inside him is eventually going to drive him to confess, or to off himself."

From what I've seen of him on TV, he must be a total sociopaath. No guilt, consceince or empathy. Major creep-o.

He's a celebrity now, he said, in the same way Scott Peterson was before his arrest in the death of his pregnant wife, Laci, and the way people still wonder about O.J. Simpson.

******************

What a bizarre thing for him to say. He seems oddly arrogant.

Isn’t this like that saying, “You can’t have your wife and kill her, too.”

He is not supposed to have any guns. Cops took them all.
