A “Today Show” cap signed by Drew Peterson is back on eBay but the auction is having even less success then the first attempt to sell the item.
The cap originally went on the auction block May 14 but was taken down several days later. At the time, one person had bid the minimum $1,000.
A description of the cap says it came from Peterson’s appearance on the “Today Show” earlier this year to discuss the Oct. 28 disappearance of his fourth wife Stacy and the March 2004 drowning of his third wife Kathleen Savio.
Peterson is a suspect in his wife’s disappearance. Authorities recently reclassified Savio’s death as a homicide but have not named a suspect. Peterson has denied any involvement in the mysterious fates of his wives and has not been charged with a crime in either case.
Peterson has said he signed the cap for a friend who later gave it to her mother, who apparently is behind the auction. The listed seller goes by “arkhyn” and is the same eBay member who put the cap up for sale originally.
The seller did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment Monday night.
The latest auction went live on Friday, again with a starting bid of $1,000. As of Monday night, no one had placed a bid.
News of the May posting created a stir as national television pundits derided the listing.
The latest entry contains this disclaimer: “This auction in NO way seeks to promote or glorify hatred or violence. This item is sold ONLY as a piece of TV memorabilia as this particular signature was made at a historical TV appearance event for those who are interested in such memorabilia. Again, I do not condone acts of violence and wish to remind everyone that Drew Peterson is still innocent until proven guilty by the American Legal System and assumptions of guilt of any non-proven crime are not my fault. Stacy Peterson’s disappearance has not been confirmed to be involuntary at this time and so she cannot be labeled a victim of “human tragedy” at this time, despite the fact that this auction has nothing to do with her other than her disappearance was the topic of discussion on Drew Peterson’s Today Show appearance. eBay listing policies have been carefully reviewed to make certain that this listing is not in violation of the prohibited items policy.”
