"People run away. People drown in the bathtub. And it happened to me."
|IL||"The public scoffed when Drew Peterson claimed his missing wife ran off with another man. But now when he says it "happens all the time," he can point to a Wheeling woman who vanished last week only to resurface after taking up with a Californian friend for a cross-country trip. "This happens a lot more frequently than people are talking about. This is just another case of what happened to me happening to someone else," Peterson, the embattled ex-cop whose wife, Stacy, vanished more than two months ago, said of the case of Anu Solanki" - "Here's another case," he said. "People run away. People drown in the bathtub. And it happened to me."|

Jan. 24. Return
|IL||"Drew Peterson's next-door neighbors, past and present, appeared before a grand jury Thursday to give testimony about the embattled ex-cop's missing fourth wife and his dead third one. Thomas Pontarelli, who lived next to Peterson and third wife Kathleen Savio on Pheasant Chase Drive, was the first to testify. He was followed by Sharon Bychowski, who lives next to Peterson at his current home on Pheasant Chase Court, mere blocks from his former residence. Bychowski said witnesses were present for both the cases of [Kathleen] Savio (snip) and Stacy Peterson" - "She said witnesses also testified in the case of Plainfield woman Lisa Stebic, who disappeared April 30." - "Another witness called in the Stacy Peterson case, Bruce Zidarich, said he was sent home before taking the stand because the session was running too long."|

The Amazing Kreskin
|"He will issue a news release next week with details of how he plans to assist with the investigation."||IL||"The Amazing Kreskin, the celebrity mentalist, announced Wednesday that he will offer his help in the search for Stacy Peterson, the missing 23-year-old mother from Bolingbrook. "I'm interested in becoming involved with this case, in more ways than one," Kreskin said. "Let's hope we can make a breakthrough on this." - "An Illinois State Police spokesman, Trooper Mark Dorencz, said Kreskin's agent had contacted law enforcement, but "at this time, we won't be granting any meeting with the Amazing Kreskin." - "Kreskin, who will turn 73 this month, had a weekly television program in the 1970s and, more recently, has been a frequent guest on TV and radio talk shows. He said Wednesday that he will issue a news release next week with details of how he plans to assist with the investigation."|

|"The donations are to be sent to an address in Indiana, care of Nicholas Harold Savio."||IL||"Now, relatives of Peterson's deceased third wife have made it an Internet trifecta with a site to raise money for battered women. But Kathleen Savio's sister was skeptical of the Web site and the relatives she says launched it. "I'm not touching this money. I have nothing to do with it," said the sister, Anna Doman. Doman said her brother, Henry M. Savio, also was unaware of any plans to raise money through kathleenkittysavio.com. Doman believes her sister, Susie Doman, and her father's son from his third marriage, Nicholas Savio, are behind the Web site. "I wish Nick would stop walking around saying he's my brother," Doman said. "He's my half-brother." Nicholas Savio was not well acquainted with Kathleen Savio or her two sons, Kris and Tom, she said. "The first time he saw Kitty's children was at her funeral," Doman said. The boys are 13 and 14."|

"the incident in the booking room was videotaped and Peterson was not on duty."
|IL||"A former police officer suspected in the disappearance of his wife will be defended in a police brutality lawsuit by an attorney hired by the town that employed him, his personal attorney said Friday." - "Police say Brownlee was arrested after a neighbor complained he was using vulgar language and was uncooperative, and that Brownlee's actions in the booking room required officers to restrain him. Brownlee was initially charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice, but the charges were later dismissed, according to his lawsuit." - "Village attorney James Boan declined to comment on the lawsuit." - "Brodsky said Brownlee included Peterson in the lawsuit in an "attempt to make money off the fact that Drew Peterson is being investigated." - "He [Brodsky] said the incident in the booking room was videotaped and Peterson was not on duty."|

|Kentucky Sighting 11/18/2007 Anonymous Letter postmarked 12/29/2007||IL||"An attorney says a former suburban police officer suspected in his wife's October disappearance received a letter from a person claiming to have spoken to the missing woman. Joel Brodsky says former Bolingbrook police officer Drew Peterson opened the letter Sunday after returning home from vacation. It was postmarked December 29th. The letter's anonymous author claims to have seen Stacy Peterson and another man in a parking lot in Florence, Kentucky, in November. The writer says when he approached the woman and showed her a picture of Stacy Peterson, she asked to be left alone and then fled on foot."|

|-||IL||A&E Special "Who is Drew Peterson?", "This timely special looks at the controversy swirling around 53-year-old police officer Drew Peterson, whose wife, Stacy, 23, mysteriously disappeared in October 2007. Suspicions that Drew murdered Stacy arose when his second wife accused him of abuse and when the body of his third wife was exhumed and showed evidence of physical violence. Then, Drew's stepbrother came forward and claimed to have helped Drew carry a large plastic container from Drew's house that he now fears may have contained Stacy's remains. Now, family members say that Drew was a controlling husband and Stacy feared for her life. Is Drew Peterson innocent, as he claims -- or a serial killer hiding behind a badge?"|

Florence Police spokesman Capt. John McDermond said no one has contacted his department about the supposed sighting. McDermond first heard the story while watching the news Monday.
|"Scheben said sheriff's deputies do not patrol the mall, which is under the jurisdiction of Florence police"
||Oh||"She fled on foot, according to the letter, and the writer said he then asked a Boone County Sheriff's deputy in the parking lot to look for her. According to the letter, which was provided to The Enquirer from the sheriff's office, the deputy refused to "help him that crooked cop", presumably meaning Joel Peterson." - "Boone County Sheriff's Spokesman Tom Scheben said the office was not aware of the claim until the newspaper report Monday. An Illinois reporter provided the office with a copy of the letter and envelope, and inquiries from Illinois and local media prompted the office to investigate. Scheben said sheriff's deputies do not patrol the mall, which is under the jurisdiction of Florence police. Deputies do respond there to assist Florence and to help customers who are locked out of their vehicles, however. Florence Police spokesman Capt. John McDermond said no one has contacted his department about the supposed sighting. McDermond first heard the story while watching the news Monday. "I did call the mall to see if they had been notified by anybody, and they had not been, either," McDermond said. Mall officials plan to review surveillance camera tape, he said." - "Scheben said no other deputies had reported contact with the anonymous letter-writer as of Tuesday morning."|

|Florence, Kentucky Police Department know nothing of reported sighting claimed in
|IL||MARY FRANCES BRAGIEL, REPORTER, NEWSRADIO 780: "You know, I spoke to family members about this letter. They don`t believe it`s the least bit credible. I spoke to a spokesperson for the Boon County Sheriff`s Department, who says that the Florence -- you know, this took place in Florence, Kentucky, and the Florence, Kentucky Police Department handles that mall where Stacy Peterson was supposedly seen. And he asked his investigators. Nobody knows anything about the supposed conversation that the author of the letter had, you know, talking to an investigator, saying that he saw Stacy Peterson. I think the biggest question here, Nancy, is that the author of this letter claims they took a photo of Stacy Peterson. How come that photo wasn`t included in the letter?"|

|Brodsky said Peterson left Bolingbrook, Illinois on 12/26, said Peterson didn't drive through Cincinnati, Ohio and arrived in Orlando, FL on 12/29||IL||NANCY GRACE: You know, I was taking a look at this typed letter, and it was sent from Cincinnati. Now, Rosie, let`s see the map. Didn`t your client, Mr. Peterson, just go on a trip to the magic kingdom down in Florida very close to Cincinnati? - JOEL BRODSKY, ATTORNEY FOR SUSPECT DREW PETERSON: Well, he didn`t take that route. And he was in Florida already at the time so when this letter was postmarked. - GRACE: Really? - BRODSKY: Yes. - GRACE: How do you know what route he took? - BRODSKY: Because he told me. And he was already in Florida. I had spoken to him down there. He was already in Florida on the 29th. - GRACE: In Florida on the 29th. And this was postmarked on the 29th. Question: what day did he leave? - BRODSKY: He left just after -- just after Christmas. The 26th. - GRACE: He left on the 26th. You`re certain? - BRODSKY: Yes.|
NANCY GRACE: Sir, what route did your client take on the way down to Orlando? - BRODSKY: That I`m not 100 percent sure. I know he told me. I know he didn`t go near Cincinnati. And I know that he was, because I spoke to him, in Florida on the 29th.

Peterson attorney, Joel Brodsky
"Yes. It was her cell phone to his cell phone, and I know the Illinois State Police have those cell phones. They have those SIM cards"
|IL||JOEL BRODSKY: We don`t just have somebody who disappeared. We have somebody who called him and told him she had found somebody else and she`s leaving. - NANCY GRACE: Has that call been tracked? Has that call been verified? I mean did she call on his cell phone? Her home phone? - BRODSKY: Yes. It was her cell phone to his cell phone, and I know the Illinois State Police have those cell phones. They have those SIM cards. - GRACE: Well, have you gotten evidence of that? I mean the cell phone bill would come there to the home, would it not? - BRODSKY: The Illinois State Police has impounded all those records. - GRACE: No. - BRODSKY: I can`t get to them. We`ve tried. - GRACE: No. No, no, no. That bill would come to his home, would it not? - BRODSKY: No, that -- that record, those phone records have been impounded by the Illinois State Police. We could not get to them. - GRACE: I`m not asking whether you can issue a subpoena duces tecum for documents. - BRODSKY: No. - GRACE: I`m saying that would be on a valid monthly bill that would come to Drew Peterson`s home. Did he get it? Did he show you the bill and go look, here`s the phone call? - BRODSKY: No. That bill didn`t come. The Illinois State Police have impounded all those records. We do not get that bill. We do not have those records. They have them.|

"Drew Peterson picks up his mail Jan. 7, accompanied by Michael J. Robinson (background), a friend who was accused Monday in a beating a former girlfriend and her friend. Robinson was freed on bail Wednesday."
|"Court records show the intimidation charge was lodged after Robinson was accused of calling the third woman and threatening to hurt her if she spoke to investigators"
More on this story under 01/16/2008
|ILL||"Robinson was with the two women in an apartment complex elevator about 3:30 a.m. Monday [01/14/2008] when he quarreled with his ex-girlfriend, 32, over a phone call and began choking her, said Bolingbrook police Lt. Ken Teppel. When her friend, age 40, tried to intervene, Robinson allegedly punched her in the face, authorities said. Robinson dragged his ex-girlfriend and the friend into the apartment of a third woman and again tried to choke the ex-girlfriend, Teppel said, and when the friend tried to separate them, Robinson punched her in the face several times, knocking her to the floor. Robinson left, and when police arrived, they saw bruises and cuts on the friend's face, Teppel said.|
Bolingbrook police sought a warrant for Robinson's arrest on battery charges, but given his friendship with Peterson, Glasgow referred the case to state police, Teppel said. He said the charge of witness intimidation was not lodged by his department. Court records show the intimidation charge was lodged after Robinson was accused of calling the third woman and threatening to hurt her if she spoke to investigators. Robinson has a lengthy history of arrests on a variety of charges, including a 1993 conviction for unlawful delivery of a controlled substance for which he was sentenced to 4 years probation."

|Peterson hires Publicist||IL||"A former police officer named a suspect in his wife's disappearance said he's hired a publicist and isn't talking about his days on the force because he could soon be getting paid to tell his story." - "Peterson would be happy to talk about his police career with approval from a Florida publicist he's hired, he said. But the publicist told the Sun-Times that Peterson can't talk about those days because there's a deal in the works for someone else to tell the story."|

Peterson wants Denzel [Washington] in movie of his life
|IL||"The convoy of TV trucks was gone. Not a single reporter was in sight.
Only the fluttering "Caution. Do Not Enter" tape encircling a neighbor's front yard hinted at the frenzy that, until recently, enveloped Pheasant Chase Court. And Drew Peterson liked it that way.
"It's a great break -- it's almost like I can live a normal life," said a relaxed-looking Peterson, sitting in a burgundy leather chair behind a wooden desk in his home office one morning last week."|
"They're hot on the trail of my family and friends," a sarcastic Peterson said of the grand jury."
"In the adjoining living room, Anthony and Lacy -- the two young children he has with Stacy -- squabbled in front of a huge TV that played cartoons. "Anthony and Lacy, I'm talking to people," Peterson called out in a voice more fatherly than stern. "What happens if you're bad? Go up to your room." Prepared to sell his story. Lacking the media swarm, and apparently with no place to be, Peterson chatted about a range of subjects, from his love of flying to the actor he'd most like to see play him in the movie version of his life. "I look a lot like Denzel [Washington]," he joked."

THE WILL 03/02/1997
FULL Transcipt HERE
The 03/02/1997 WILL was hand written by Drew Peterson
CRAIG WALL: "Now that long forgotten Will, evidence in the investigation."
Alex Morelli, Drew's former partner in the BBPD says he wants nothing more to do with Peterson
Gary Marcolina, Drew's best man at his wedding refused to talk to the media
Drew's Uncle, James B. Carrol declined to comment
|IL||01/15/2008 Craig Wall (www.myfoxchicago.com) reporting FOX NEWS EXCLUSIVE (VIDEO):|
"Drew Peterson's Will With Kathleen Savio Subpoenaed by Grand Jury"
CRAIG WALL: "The date of the WILL, March 2, 1997, nearly seven years later almost to the day Kathleen Savio would be found dead in her bathtub. That simple handwritten statement would become her Last Will and Testament." - "It had been a bitter divorce. Her husband was in the middle of an adulteress affair with 19 year old Stacy Peterson and while Kathleen remembered to change the beneficiaries on her life insurance there was still that WILL." - "So despite the divorce, Drew Peterson got all her furniture, jewelry and the money from the sale of the home, about $288,000 thousand dollars. He was also named guardian of the children's million dollar trust fund." - "But take a close look at the will."
DREW PETERSON: "There really wasn't nothing sinister about it, just something simple if something happen if we were on vacation." - "I wrote up the WILL with Kathleen's instructions and we simply had a couple friends that were over to witness it and that was that simple."
CRAIG WALL: "Those friends turned out to be Peterson's former partners in the Bolingbrook Police Department and according to the Savio family, Drew's best man at their wedding. Alex Morelli, Drew's former partner says he wants nothing more to do with Drew and has nothing positive to say about him. He said Drew has turned his world upside down. Best man, Gary Marcolina took off when we tied to talk to him. The old Will names James B. Carrol, Drew’s Uncle, names him executor and gives him full control. He confirmed the account that he was going on vacation but declined to comment further. Once the Will was admitted into court, Carrol promptly fired Kathleen's attorney and discharged another lawyer appointed by the court to watch out for the best interest of the children. So Mr. Carrol had an obligation not to be looking out for Drew but to look out for Kathleen."
CRAIG WALL: "So who does it appear the executor was looking out for in this case?"

Joel Alan Brodsky
is charged, Brodsky may bring in other lawyers to assist, but "it's my show," "I drive the bus." he boasted"
|IL||"In a city rich with big-time defense lawyers, Joel Alan Brodsky seemingly came from nowhere to land the hottest criminal case in the country as Drew Peterson's attorney. After all, Brodsky has never defended a homicide case. He is on more familiar turf handling drug cases and civil lawsuits. Brodsky is a glib, aggressive lawyer who has been hustling among courthouses in the city and suburbs for 25 years." - "If Peterson is charged, Brodsky may bring in other lawyers to assist, but "it's my show," he boasted during an interview last week at his South Michigan Avenue office. "I drive the bus." Snatching Peterson as a client was a watershed moment for Brodsky, who over the last decade has weathered his own personal and professional problems—divorce, bankruptcy and the loss of his law license for three months due to disciplinary action. He talks with an eager confidence but battles, too, with stresses from his higher profile."|
