Kentucky cops say they have no record of Peterson sighting

The anonymous writer who claimed to have spotted Stacy Peterson in a Kentucky mall parking lot also claimed to have reported the incident to local authorities.

In a release, Boone County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Tom Scheben said the department had no record of any report regarding the Peterson case.

He said the department does not usually patrol the mall area but one deputy was in the mall that day to open a locked car. The deputy said he had not been approached by anybody about the Peterson case.

Drew Peterson opened the letter Sunday upon returning from vacation, his attorney Joel Brodsky said. The letter is postmarked Dec. 29 and speaks of a Nov. 18 encounter between the writer and Stacy Peterson, who has been missing since Oct. 28.g04b04be371ef5e3d4a9adc79c3fcc719a2ce77f930740d1.jpg

Her husband has been named a suspect in her disappearance. He has not been charged with a crime.

Brodsky said the letter has been handed over to Illinois State Police.

Trooper Mark Dorencz said the department had not received the letter as of 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

“It will be treated like any other lead and investigated thoroughly,” Dorencz said.

Here’s a copy of the letter sent to “Mr. Joel Peterson”:

  1. Maybe the Will County and District attorney can learn from the Georgia police that arrested the man who killed the jogger in Georgia. Within days they had the guy in custody for kidnapping! Then they were able to pressure him to squeal…and squeal he did, even brininging him to the body…now that’s good police work! And another thing…everyone knew Drew was having sex with an underaged teen…why don’t they arrest him for statutory least that’s something..lf not at least arrest him for being the most obnoxious person in the world!

  2. I really get upset when people note something is fact when they really have no clue.
    Mr Peterson did not in fact commit any rape crime..
    As a matter of fact OFFICER Peterson had persmission to date the 17 yr. old from the parents, but also had permission from the legal system and was well documented that he made sure that the police dept was aware and approved of a non sexual relationship with the 17 soon to be 18 yr old.

    Let it also be know that just 1 police report recorded only 1 incident of physical domestic violence at the home..It was a fight between Stacy and Savio !
    never any physical confrontations were ever levied against Oeterson.

  3. Believe it or not, some parents will give permission for even younger children, that doesn’t excuse it. What does an old man want with a teenaged girl? We call that perverted in the civilized world.

  6. POST #23 Glenn Selig, “Georgetown, KY”
    “I can assure you that is not a scam. It’s quite legit. I hestitate to even take time respond to such rediculous comments and to ignorant individuals who toss accusations like they’re footballs… I am the Exec. VP of Marketing for, with a background as an investigative reporter and consumer reporter for Fox News in Tampa. And we were just profiled on WFLA (NBC) TV in Tampa. I think this rumor needs to be put to rest.”

  7. From Kentucky letter…

    “….everyone thinks your guilty because of the press. Fox news has a evil woman named Kimberly Guilfoyle and she is an ex-prosecutor and she is attacking you and I am sure fox will attack me if I come forward, like the rest of the press. Good luck!!!

    Didn’t Selig get fired from Fox ?
