PEREZ: "Now among those who watched Drew Peterson's interview on the TODAY show yesterday was one man who had a very brief but emotional meeting with Stacy."

JOHN LAMANTIA: "Very nervous, very fearful, very timid."

PEREZ: "That's how John Lamantia remembers Stacy Peterson when he met Stacy Peterson April 13th, he noted it in his calendar. It was a day Stacy Peterson accidently crashed into his parked car [in a coffee shop parking lot]."

LAMANTIA: "She didn't want to go through insurance."

PEREZ: "So the two made arrangements to fix the car on the roe. Lamantia works as a social worker and counsler. He says Stacy opened up to him about her marriage, said it was troubled and that she was physically abused."

LAMANTIA: "She went into the story of telling me basically she had to leave her house because she was fighting with her husband and the arguement got heated."
