Peterson was then indicted on that murder, and is in jail awaiting trial. The police are still looking for his last wife's body, and it looks like they may have found it.
Two, that we have heard of... No. 3 and No. 4
Peterson was married to his first wife, Carol (Hamilton) Brown, from 1974 to 1980. They divorced after she learned about his infidelity
Peterson married his second wife, Victoria (Rutkiewicz) Connolly, in 1982. Connolly has alleged a history of abuse during her 10-year marriage to Peterson, as has her daughter who lived in the household during this time, from the age of 8 to 17 years.
In 2007, Connolly stated that Peterson “was a legend in his own mind”. The couple divorced after Peterson started dating Kathleen Savio, who would later become his third wife
Peterson married Kathleen Savio (born June 13, 1963) on May 3, 1992. Their divorce was finalized on October 10, 2003. It was reported that between 2002 and 2004 police were called out to the Peterson house 18 times on domestic disturbance calls
On March 1, 2004, Kathleen Savio’s body was subsequently found in a waterless bathtub. Her death was initially ruled an accidental drowning
Peterson married Stacy Ann Cales (born January 20, 1984) on October 18, 2003. She disappeared on October 28, 2007. Stacy Peterson was officially reported missing in the early hours of October 29, 2007, after her sister, Cassandra Cales, failed to hear from her when expected. Drew Peterson claims that Stacy called him at 9 p.m. on Sunday to tell him that she had left him for another man and that she had left her car at Bolingbrook’s Clow International Airport.
****Drew Petersons attorney, Joel Brodsky, called the most recent search patently ridiculous.****
Hey Joel - perhaps Stacey was murdered and buried by the *other man* she ran off with. Don’t tell us you forgot Drew’s alibi...that would be really stupid.
That was Scott Peterson - who murdered his pregnant wife Laci.
There is a Michael Peterson who murdered two women (one wife) and was recently convicted.
Drew Peterson former Illinois cop - 4 wives maybe murdered two.
Thanks for the ping!!
I too though how stupid for an ex-cop to be confessing to anyone in the jailhouse.
That was Laci Peterson.
Wow. He could be a serial killer, or at least on his way to it.
Cops have taped off a section on private hunting ground in Peoria, IL. It appears officials have set up a tent inside the restricted area.
Prediction. They won’t find Sh*t.

There may be a break in the search for Stacy Peterson, the fourth wife of former Bolingbrook police officer and accused killer Drew Peterson.
Illinois State Police are at a private hunting ground near Metamora — a town 12 miles northeast of Peoria — and are reportedly digging for a metal drum that may contain human remains.
Working with new information in the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, authorities are set to dig in search of her body Saturday in an area east of Peoria, sources said. Officials confirmed a search for human remains is underway Saturday morning.
Illinois State Police confirmed Saturday that they are currently following a lead in rural central Illinois regarding Petersons disappearance and have set up a media staging at a location near Peoria, according to an ISP release.
Sources do confirm that law enforcement, using dogs, searched a hunting area east of Peoria Friday. They are set to return Saturday to dig in an specific area.
Sources told a reporter Stacy Petersons relatives are also at the scene.
Her poor family. I can’t imagine the pain they are going through.
Is Michael Peterson the one who had two wives who “fell” downstairs?
Lacey Peterson. Different husband. Currently on death row in Cali.
Two that I know of?
God, in my next life remind me never to marry anyone with a last name that sounds anythng like Peterson.
I must admit, I wanted to marry Paul Peterson when I grew up. We all did. (Really dating myself)
