FINALLY! That scumbag Drew Peterson has been arrested for murder of his third wife and is still under suspicion in the disappearance of his fourth wife.
Drew Peterson, whose third wife died mysteriously and fourth wife vanished, had taunted authorities to come and get him — when he wasn’t clowning for the cameras. On Thursday, they came for him.
Peterson, 55, was arrested at an intersection near his home shortly after his indictment in the murder of third wife Kathleen Savio, who was found drowned in an empty bathtub of her Bolingbrook home in March 2004.
The former Bolingbrook police sergeant — whose bizarre encounters with the media, his neighbors and law enforcement played out on a world stage — will see his next act, the one that determines if he ever walks free again, unfold in a courtroom.
“Drew has steadfastly maintained his innocence regarding the rumor and innuendo that has circulated regarding the unfortunate death of Kathleen,” said Peterson attorney Andrew Abood. “Although he is disappointed with the decision of the state, he looks forward to the opportunity to once and for all prove his innocence in a court of law.”
The death of Savio, initially ruled an accident, was reinvestigated after Peterson’s then-23-year-old fourth wife, Stacy, disappeared in October 2007. Prosecutors said the Stacy Peterson case remained open Thursday night. In connection with the alleged slaying of Savio, Peterson faces two counts of murder and is being held in lieu of $20 million bail, said Will County State’s Atty. James Glasgow.
Smile pretty for the cameras now Drew.
