The sister of Kathleen Savio is expected to testify Thursday afternoon in front of the grand jury investigating the disappearance of Bolingbrook resident Stacy Peterson and the March 2004 drowning of Savio.
Susan Doman is the first of Savio’s family to testify before the grand jury. She showed up at the Will County Court Annex building in Joliet with her daughter, and made a brief statement.
“We miss my sister very much,” she said. “This has been a horrible situation and we just want justice to be served.”
Doman is one of five family members who petitioned the court to reopen Savio’s estate in preparation for a possible wrongful death lawsuit against Drew Peterson. Peterson is considered a suspect in the October 2007 disappearance of his wife, Stacy. Peterson was also married to Savio, who was found dead in the couple’s bathroom tub.
