    Convicted wife-killer Drew Peterson reportedly was jumped by another inmate at an Indiana prison -- only about a month after the Illinois ex-cop moved to the new facility for security. The inmate, who was not identified, attacked Peterson with a food tray on March 29 in a dining area of the maximum-security federal facility in Terre Haute, a source told The Chicago Tribune. Peterson wasn’t seriously hurt and was separated from the prison's general population afterwards.

  • Cocky ex-cop Drew Peterson screams his innocence, gets 38 years in prison for wife's murder

    JOLIET, Ill. – Drew Peterson showed nearly no emotion during his murder trial. Yet the once famously jocular ex-Illinois police officer screamed out his innocence before he was sentenced to 38 years in prison for his third wife's death. The outburst Thursday suggested reality may be settling in for Peterson, who for years casually dismissed suggestions he killed Kathleen Savio in 2004, or that he was behind the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson. Savio's death was initially ruled an accident. But after Stacy Peterson disappeared, authorities took another look and reclassified Savio's death as a homicide.

    JOLIET, Ill. – DEVELOPING: Jurors convicted Drew Peterson of murdering his third wife Thursday, capping a sensational, five-year legal saga that began after the swaggering former Illinois police officer's fourth wife vanished. Peterson, 58, faces a maximum 60-year prison term when sentenced. Illinois has no death penalty. The prosecution built its case almost exclusively on circumstantial and hearsay evidence, including testimony about what Peterson's wives had told friends and acquaintances before the one died and the other disappeared. The verdict was a vindication for Will County prosecutors, who gambled by putting on such a case and then committed numerous stumbles...

I went back and picked a post from November 07 through April 08 about this guy. If you need a comprehensive update on this guy's story, now that he's FINALLY been arrested for the murder of ONE of his wives. Also, beloved granddaughter pic time.

    Looks like it’s bride number 5 for Drew Peterson. “Yeah, he proposed and she accepted,” Peterson's attorney, Joel Brodsky... But Brodsky added, “I guess he's got to get divorced.” Peterson said he does not believe his marital status should prevent him from becoming engaged. “I was married to Kathleen when I was engaged to Stacy," ... Kathleen — Kathleen Savio, wife number 3 — was the victim of an unsolved March 2004 homicide. Stacy — wife number 4 — vanished in October 2007. “Last time I had a relationship, you guys screwed it all up," he said of 22-year-old tanning...

    The Blog belongs to Paula Stark & Len Wawczak. They are the two "friends" of Drew Peterson who allegedly wore a wire and recorded conversations with Peterson over a 7 month period of time. Len also posed as the girl "Ashley" online and has the text messages between Peterson and himself on the site. They have been interviewed on FOX recently where they talk about their experience and say Peterson will be arrested shortly. It seems to me that if they did work for the police and they are giving details of what was said(in the taped conversations)it could really...

    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...

An arrest has been made in the Burk murder.

Could Drew have been concerned about the bag of worms such an action might bring about in view that it's...
