BREAKING: Drew Peterson Arrested
Joliet Herald News ^ | 4/7/2009 | Joe Hosey

Posted on 05/07/2009 4:10:12 PM PDT by JennysCool

BOLINGBROOK – Authorities arrested Drew Peterson Thursday near his Bolingbrook home for the murder of his third wife Kathleen Savio, according to police sources.

Police took Peterson into custody at Weber and Lilly Cache roads.

Savio, 40, was found dead in a dry bathtub in her Bolingbrook home in March 2004.

At the time, Illinois State Police failed to find anything suspicious and her death was ruled an accidental drowning by a coroner’s jury.

Not that I think he didn’t do it, but they better have more than what is stated in the article.

"Innocent until proven guilty" does not mean that he can't be arrested and held on suspicion until proven either way in a fair trial.

Amendments to the Constitution

Article 5:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

OH OH OH!! I just read Dr. Lee’s book on this (and other) cases!!!!

Now I must update my book report immediately. Oh wait, it isn’t IN the book. Dangit, I’ll just have to talk non-stop about tomorrow with all my other forensic groupie classmates!

This guy’s wife’s crime scene is one we’ll be studying this quarter and we are excited so I’m SURE it will be discussed tomorrow.

Well...let's see.

Fill the tub...take a bath. Stand up to dry off...reach down to pull the plug or change the toggle thingy..slip and fall hit your head...and drown before all the water drains out?

Probably other scenarios.....

I think the guy is probably guilty...but I am just throwing things out there...........

WOMEN! Don’t marry anyone named “Peterson”.

We have Scott, Drew and Michael.

I’m just teasing, but seriously! Is there some mutant gene from like 1672 that traveled down the path to pop it’s head up in this decade???

No, dangit. We are stuck with power point photos of the crime scene.

Actually, THIS case is even more reason for study than a blood spatter or another such case because of the few relative clues.

But thennnnn we’ll get into the autopsy reports and such. At least the things they’ll allow us to see or have already been released. The rest is under seal.

Blood spatter is next quarter.

The case here is not in Chicago but in a nice western suburb of the Windy City. The city of Bolingbrook is located in conservative, Republican Du Page County. My sister lives a stone's throw from Peterson's home.

Good, speedy Republican justice in the court system. I hope Drew didn't buy any ripe bananas just before he was arrested.

Latin lesson from the movie TOMBSTONE


Wyatt Earp (Kurt Russell) is running the Faro table in a crowded saloon with an inebriated Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer) standing by. A group of cowboys enters noisily led by Curly Bill Brocius (Powers Boothe) and Johnny Ringo (Michael Biehn).

Ringo (stepping up to Doc):
And you must be Doc Holliday.

Doc (acting careless, drunk, and not looking very well):
That’s the rumor.

Ringo:
You retired too?

Doc:
Not me. I’m in my prime.

Ringo (sarcastically):
Yeah, you look it.

Doc:
And you must be Ringo. Look, darling, it’s Johnny Ringo. The deadliest pistoleer since Wild Bill, they say. What do you think, darling? Should I hate him?

Kate:
You don’t even know him.

Doc:
Yes, but there’s just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don’t know, reminds me of ... me. No. I’m sure of it, I hate him.

Wyatt (to Curly Bill and Johnny, holding up hands in peace-making gesture):
He’s drunk.

Doc (taking another drink from his tin cup):
In vino veritas.
[a Roman proverb that translates to “In wine, is the truth” or “Wine loosens the tongue”]

Ringo:
Age quod agis.
[literally: “do what you are doing”
meaning: “Pay attention to what you are doing”
or “You’d better be careful” or “Watch what you say”]

Doc:
Credat judaeus Apella, non ego.
[a phrase from a work by Horace, literally:
“Let Apella believe it; not I.”
meaning: “I don’t believe you”
or in this case “I do not fear you.”
or “Tell it to the Marines, not me” ]

Ringo (while patting his revolver):
Eventus stultorum magister.
[”Experience is the teacher of fools”
or “Fools have to learn by experience”]

Doc (half-whispering and with a heightened intensity):
In pace requiescatum.
[”Rest in peace” or “It’s your funeral”]

Tombstone Marshal Fred White:
Come on boys. We don’t want any trouble in here. Not in any language.

Doc Holliday:
Evidently Mr. Ringo’s an educated man. Now I really hate him.

It gets confusing...

Add these names and it gets almost eerie:

Lacy Peterson, 4-year-old daughter of Stacy and Drew

Tracy, California, town where Sandra Cantu was murdered

Tracy McLaughlin, Leonard Padilla's associate who stayed in the Anthony home
