Drew Peterson by mrsteabag on 21 May 2009 7:03pm
Recapping the story on the other headline hogging miscreant in Chicagoland: He's an ex-cop whose 4th wife, Stacy, has been missing for 18 months. He's stuck to his story that she ran off with another man and took nothing but a passport and a bikini. Two weeks ago he was indicted on charges of first degree murder in the death of his 3rd wife, Kathleen. (He's divorced from wives 1 and 2.) His defence lawyer has been on national tv many times in the last year and a half to plead his case in the court of public opinion. They've hired a PR firm, the same one that represents ex-Gov. B.
Well, yesterday a badly decomposed body and a blue barrel (Peterson's step brother, who has a history of mental illness and other issues, was given immunity to testify that he may have unwittingly helped dispose of Stacy's remains) were found in a river in the southern part of the county where Peterson resides. The state police, sheriff's department, coroner, and state's attorney are all being tight -lipped about it. Preliminary autopsy results and possible ID are expected later today or tomorrow.

He has an evil-looking face! I bet the prosecution will be all over his step-brother's mental illness. Even if those are Stacy's remains, they'll say the step-brother acted alone, or that he helped someone else.

The stepbrother was given immunity in exchange for his testimony to a grand jury investigating Stacy's disapperance. :).
Today's updates: the new judge is a woman who refused to lower the $20M bail, and someone contacted the state's attorney's office alledging that Peterson approached him about about a contract on one of the now deceased wives. That slapped some of the smug off his nasty kisser.

Sounds horrible. What a world eh?

My friend's uncle was convicted of murdering his wife 20 years after the fact. The body had been dumped in a barrel and submerged in a river, they used advanced DNA 20 years later and found blood on a piece of fabric (the body had long gone), they found his, his girlfriend's and the wive's. He's in jail now for 18 years.

18 yrs. isn't enough.
Re: Drew Peterson by kazzzz on 23 May 2009 3:02pm
No it isn't. He gets out on 2 years.

OMG, Kaz....that's...I can't find the words. What goes on in some people's minds is beyond me. I used to be an addictions councelor at a local center. After what some of my clients went through, and some of the behavior they engaged in, nothing surprises me anymore. Shocks, yes, but not surprises.

Then Dr. Phil had Drew Peterson on. That is an ongoing sick story.
Re: Drew Peterson by sighthound on 25 May 2009 8:11pm
Dr. Phil is an ongoing sick story, a total charlatan.

I'm with you there 100% Geraldine. He uses the same formulas for everyone, and people hang on his every word. My Aunt almost lives her live by his 'advice'.
I feel the saem way about the likes of Jerry Springer and shows like that, utter muckrakers making a living out of other people's misery. There's a Jerry Springer series here on Foxtel, the really bad episodes, and you have to pay EXTRA on your package to see them, as if the're a sporting event or something. It's unbeleivable, these shows are banned from my house, too much negative energy.
I question as to whether they're even real, or are they scripted? Do the 'guests' get paid to appear? You couldn't pay me enough to appear on a show like that.
