The search for Stacy: Week in review

Sorry this is late folks. We’ll get back on the regular schedule this week.

Here’s the a look at some of the week’s developments in the Peterson case. Please note, updates are current through 2 p.m. Sunday. Please check back often for updates. you can also visit the Bolingbrook Reporter online at www.mysuburbanlife.com for the latest breaking news.

• Drew Peterson’s attorney filed an appeal Tuesday, April 22, requesting the court to reverse a Will County judge’s decision to reopen the estate of Peterson’s third wife Kathleen Savio. The judge’s April 17 decision removed Peterson’s uncle, James Carroll, as executor and appointed Savio’s father and sister as administrators of any new assets that come into the estate. Savio’s family had petitioned for the reopening in preparation for a possible wrongful death lawsuit against Peterson. Brodsky argued the two-year statute of limitations on filing such lawsuits has passed and that the Savio’s family’s petition does not meet the legal requirements for reopening an estate.
• On Wednesday, April 23, Brodsky said his client has legally transferred ownership of 11 firearms seized from Peterson’s home to his son Stephen, an Oak Brook police officer. Brodsky said he will file a motion within a couple of weeks asking the court to force state police to give the firearms to Stephen Peterson.
• Peterson and Brodsky appeared on MSNBC’s “Verdict with Dan Abrams” on Thursday, April 24. Peterson denied claims by several people that he was controlling and abusive to his wives and ex-fiancee. He also maintained his belief that Savio’s March 2004 drowning was an accident and that his missing wife Stacy Peterson is alive and with another man.
