|-||ILL||07/18/2002 Bolingbrook Police Incident Report filed by Kathleen Savio
of July 5, 2002 "Criminal Trespassing," "Unlawful Restraint" "Domestic Battery" filed against Drew Peterson (Transcribed by www.acandyrose.com)|
"Kathleen advised that she again told him to go, he said that he would go when he wanted and then he looked out the window. He thew one of her garage door openers down and he left the residence. She then called her attorney Harris Smith, her friend Steve Maniaci, her sister Susie Lizak and her neighbor Mary Ponterilli. She advised that her attorney advised her to file a report but she was afraid to file because she believed Drew was unstable and had warned her that if she called anyone he would deny it. During the time of the incident Kathleen advised that three times the telephone rang but Drew would not allow her to answer it. Those calls she later learned were from her sister Susan Lizak, the next door neighbor child, 12-year-old Nicki and her friend Steve Maniaci."
Later this date [07/18/2002] I spoke with Steven P. Maniaci, m/w (BLACKED OUT AREA). The following is a summary of that conversation.
"Steven advised that on Friday, 07-05-02, he received a telephone call from Kathleen at approximately 12:15 or 12:30 p.m. He was on a motorcycle ride. She was upset and wanted him to come over. She told him that Drew got into the house by using a garage door opener. He popped out of a room as she was coming down the stairs with laundry. He wouldn't let her leave. He grabbed her a few times and made her sit down. She told him if you are going to kill me just do it. He pulled a knife and asked her where she wanted it. He was wearing a swat uniform. She did not mention if he had a gun.
Steven went and saw Kathleen later that day. She told him that she did not want Drew arrested or reprimanded. He also advised that he was aware that previously Drew cut a hole in the garage drywall to gain entry into the family room."

"Grand jury scheduled to meet for at least 4 more months, prosecutor says"
"Today [01/24/2008 Will Co Grand Jury] we talked about mostly some stuff that went on with the Savio case, some surveillance things I did with Drew on her," [Ric] Mims said, shivering outside the Joliet building. "We followed her a few times. He'd have me watch her a few times at work while he did whatever it is he needed to do. "I was helping him. I thought he was going through a divorce, and just needed somebody to help him." - "He said that he and Peterson, a former Bolingbrook police sergeant, would communicate by two-way radios, and that Peterson suspected Savio was having an affair. The surveillance took place in late 2003 or early 2004, Mims said, which would have been after Peterson was already married to Stacy but before his divorce settlement with Savio was finalized."
"When asked if he felt bad about his participation, Mims said his biggest regret was the day he met Peterson. "I was not participating in [any] harassment. I never participate in any harassment," Mims said. "At the time, I was just helping a friend. . .with this, what I thought was going through a divorce. I thought he was just trying to find dirt on her for a divorce. I regret the day I met Drew Peterson now, to tell you the truth."

"Well, it would be someone with a key or it would be someone with the garage door opener, or someone who knew how to pick a lock."
|ILL||02/21/2008 (Greta OTR) "Drew Peterson's Third Wife's Death Officially Ruled a Homicide"|
ANNA DOMAN, KATHLEEN SAVIO'S SISTER: "Well, it would be someone with a key or it would be someone with the garage door opener, or someone who knew how to pick a lock. And I don't know anyone else who had a key. I didn't even have a key. She had had the locks changed. I don't know who had a key. I don't know if Drew had a key or not. I believe he had a garage door opener. I am not positive. I believe he did."
GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, HOST: The other theory is that she let somebody in. Did she have any sort of — did she have a romantic interest at the time? She was separated from Drew, actually divorced. They were about to do their property settlement.
ANNA DOMAN, KATHLEEN SAVIO'S SISTER: She did have a boyfriend. Yes, she did have a boyfriend.
GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, HOST: Do you know where he was that weekend?
ANNA DOMAN, KATHLEEN SAVIO'S SISTER: I don't think he was with her that night. I mean, she was by herself that evening. He's a very busy guy. He's got his own business and he's got a lot of things going on, so — he tried to spend as much time as he could, but he lived in the northern suburbs, so you know, he couldn't just drop over, you know, that easily. I don't think he had a key, though.

|"Just before Doman testified, the grand jury heard from Steve Maniaci, who was dating Savio at the time of her death, Doman said."||ILL||05/08/2008 "Sister of Peterson’s former wife testifies before grand jury"|
"The sister of Drew Peteron’s deceased third wife testified Thursday before the grand jury investigating that death and the disappearance of Peterson’s fourth wife Stacy. Susan Doman, sister of Kathleen Savio, declined to comment on the details of her testimony but said her family is still reeling from her sister's death four years ago."
"Doman said Thursday was her first appearance before the grand jury and that no other family member has testified. Just before Doman testified, the grand jury heard from Steve Maniaci, who was dating Savio at the time of her death, Doman said."
"Lisa Ward, daughter of Drew Peterson's second wife Vicki Connolly, also testified Thursday but declined comment as she left the Will County Court Annex building in Joliet. Ward previously told Fox News Channel's Greta Van Susteren that Peterson had threatened to kill her mother and that he had the home's phones tapped. Connolly appeared before the grand jury April 3 but declined to comment on her testimony. She and Peterson were married for 10 years, starting in 1982. The two divorced when Connolly found out Peterson was having an affair with Savio."

"If he was smart, he took the Fifth," Brodsky said of Maniaci. "If it was my girlfriend who was found dead, and it was declared a homicide, and I had the code to the alarm system, and there were no signs of forced entry, I would have a lawyer with me."
|"Maniaci spoke to Savio on the phone two nights before she was found drowned in her dry bathtub in March 2004"||ILL||05/08/2008 (suburbanchicagonews.com) "Attorney: Police have tunnel vision"|
"Sue Doman, the sister of dead third wife Kathleen Savio, said Savio's former boyfriend, Steve Maniaci, testified before her Thursday. Maniaci spoke to Savio on the phone two nights before she was found drowned in her dry bathtub in March 2004."
"Did couple break up? Peterson's attorney, Joel Brodsky, claims Maniaci and Savio broke off their relationship the weekend before she was found dead. "If he was smart, he took the Fifth," Brodsky said of Maniaci. "If it was my girlfriend who was found dead, and it was declared a homicide, and I had the code to the alarm system, and there were no signs of forced entry, I would have a lawyer with me." Maniaci could not be reached for comment. Savio's niece, Melissa Doman, disputed Brodsky's assertion. "No. If memory serves me correctly, he was at my aunt's wake," Melissa Doman said. "Why would he be there if they broke up?"
"State police have not named suspects in the Savio homicide." - "Brodsky said that instead of focusing on Peterson for Stacy's disappearance case, police should be turning an eye to others. "They're got tunnel vision," Brodsky said. "I'm not just whistling Dixie."
