This guy makes my skin crawl.
Former police officer Drew Peterson ,you know, the ex cop who misteriously loses his wives (4) usually by death. Now a prosecutor says, at a hearing Friday, that Peterson tried to hire a hit man to kill his third wife. The State’s Attorney said during the bail reduction hearing Friday that Peterson tried to solicit a hit man for $25,000 to kill her. The former Bolingbrook, Illinois sergeant has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder for ex wife Savio’s death in 2004.
The couple was going through a divorce when Savio was found dead in her bathtub with a gash to the back of her head.
The hearing concluded with the judge denying Peterson’s request to reduce his $20 million bail. Thanks- who wants to see this guy get out only to remarry?
In case you forgot, Peterson has also been named a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson. He has been working hard on obtaining a fifth wife.
Savio’s death was ruled a homicide after exhuming her body and performing a new autopsy. Peterson was arrested earlier in the month. Prosecutors said Peterson was a flight risk because he knows how to disappear and knows he faces 20 to 60 years in jail if he’s convicted.
In addition, the state told the court that Peterson knew fact of the case that only the killer would know.
On Thursday, police realized that were facing obstacles in identifying the body found along an Illinois river bank near Peterson’s home since the corpse is missing its head, arms and skin.
Many believe could be that of either Peterson’s missing fourth wife Stacy — was clad in only women’s underwear and shreds of blue jeans that held a small amount of money.
Since the corpse lacks a head, hands or feet, it has complicated identifying the body through dental records or prints.
