Drew Peterson Named Suspect in Stacy Peterson Missing Persons Case, Kathleen Savio’s body to be Exhumed

Drew Peterson, the husband of missing Stacy Peterson, was officially named a Drew Peterson5suspect today by police. Although previously not named a suspect, it was rather obvious that all signs pointed to Drew Peterson as the most likely individual that police were focusing on in the disappearance of his wife.

His actions have been peculiar to say the least and it would appear according to reports that the pressure may be reaching a breaking point.

“I would say right now that Drew Peterson has gone from being a person of interest to clearly being a suspect,” in the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, Illinois State Police Capt. Carl Dobrich said during a news conference. “I would say this case has shifted from a missing-person case to a possible homicide case.”

Also today, authorities have announced that they will exhume the body of Drew Peterson’s 3rd wife, Kathleen Savio, who died in 2004.

Peterson’s third wife was Kathleen Savio. Her niece, Melissa Marie Doman, said family members support the decision by the Will County state’s attorney’s office to exhume Savio’s body.

Family members have long suspected that Savio didn’t drown accidentally in her bath tub as ruled by the coroner’s office, Doman said.

“I am all for it, along with the rest of my family, because something just was never right,” said Doman. “I can’t really say who, but someone did something. I don’t think it was an accident.”

Cop Suspected in Wife’s DisappearanceStacy_Peterson

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — Authorities probing the disappearance of a police officer’s wife said Friday he is now considered a suspect in a potential homicide investigation, and that the death of an ex-wife three years ago appeared to have been staged as an accidental drowning.

Authorities received court approval to exhume the body of an ex-wife of Bolingbrook Sgt. Drew Peterson as they continued the search for his wife, Stacy, who was last seen Oct. 28.

Illinois State Police Capt. Carl Dobrich said Peterson, 53, has moved from being a person of interest in the disappearance of his 23-year-old wife to “clearly being a suspect.” Dobrich also said the case was now a potential homicide investigation.

“We have mixed emotions right now,” said Pamela Bosco, Stacy Peterson’s adoptive stepmother. “We’re sad, but we needed to move on, and this is something we’ve needed to hear for a long time.”

UPDATE I: Geraldo interviews Drew Peterson

With the media camp growing outside his Bolingbrook home, Sgt. Drew Peterson took his case to Geraldo Rivera Saturday.

Off-camera, he insisted he had nothing to do with his wife’s disappearance and complained to the Fox Network broadcaster that stress caused by media coverage has caused him to lose 25 pounds.

The interview came on a day when more than 100 volunteers — though not Peterson — scoured forest preserves and ponds looking without success for 23-year-old Stacy Peterson.

In another twist, two of Stacy Peterson’s relatives entered the couple’s home and removed the ashes of Stacy’s deceased sister, who died last year of cancer.

  1. I know this isn’t the main point, but I am a little confused about one detail. Was Peterson still married to Salvo when she died March 2004? Because the articles all say that he married his 4th wife 4 years ago, but that would have been prior to Salvo’s death.

  2. Does anyone know if he killed his first two wives, or if they are still alive? I hear about all the rest but not about the first two?

  3. [...] Drew Peterson had been named a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife Stacy Peterson. Stacy Peterson has been missing since October 28 2007. Drew Peterson’s third wife, Kathleen Savio, mysteriously drown and died in a bathtub. The death was originally called an accident, but has since been ruled a homicide. However, the present arrest is not related to his previous wife’s death or disappearance. It can be speculated that at least Peterson will be in custody while authorities continue to investigate the case of missing Stacy Peterson. [...]

  5. Today, Peterson made an embarrassing slip when he told “Good Day Chicago’s” Jan Jeffcoat he told his children their mom was on vacation and never coming back. Jeffcoat asked him why he said “never.” He first said he didn’t say that but later said it was a slip of the tongue.
