A Web forum set up by friends and family of Stacy Peterson was shut down last week.
The Find Stacy Peterson forum was set up shortly after the young Bolingbrook mother disappeared Oct. 28 and served as a gathering place for thousands of people across the world to discuss the case and offer support to Peterson’s family.
A message announcing the forum’s closure Thursday states the site will be reconstructed to become an information-only site.
The forum’s parent site, www.FindStacyPeterson.com, will remain intact and continue to provide information on upcoming searches and events.
On Tuesday, Drew Peterson’s public relations firm released a statement saying Peterson had filed two complaints, one with the FBI and one with local authorities, against the site for intruding on his personal life. The full press release is available at www.prnewschannel.com.
Drew Peterson is the sole suspect in his wife Stacy’s disappearance. He has denied any wrongdoing and has not been charged with a crime.
