  1. Happy Halloween All!!!!

    Hopefully the Peterson children will be able to go out today and trick-n-treat. Maybe pops finally got back from NY.

    TGIF! Enjoy your day!

  2. morning everyone.

    happy halloween.

    I agree white, I do hope the kids can have a normal halloween, despite everything else.

  3. Good morning all. It’s very sad to think about their last halloween.

    Rescue posted last night a quote from a coroner jury panel member:
    “there was a police officer on the panel, and he indicated at the time he knew or knew of Peterson. And he indicated to the panel that he thought that Peterson was a good policeman. He was charitable and helped his neighbors, and so on and so forth. So I think that — I think that might have influenced some of the panel members, but I don’t know that for sure.”
    ———–
    Thanks Rescue, I knew I heard that before. So there was a cop on the panel after all. Plus the ill state cop doing his duty to serve and protect (his fellow officer).

  4. Lizanne – That was, in fact, H. Hardy. He was sent to the Inquest by the Illinois State Police, yet, I understand that he did not personally know Drew Peterson.

    I know this all seems confusing, but he was the only officer at the Inquest that has ever been mentioned.

  5. I just heard on the Mix radio station that someone e-mailed a tip to Mark Suppelsa that there is law enforcement activity going on at Peterson’s house right now and there were no news organizations over there. Mark Suppelsa said that he called it in to the news desk over at WGN..did anyone hear anything??????

  6. Yes, I am confused.
    I thought when they said ‘panel member’ that he was one of the 6 jurors, not just testifying as to the ISP investigation.

    Probably, maybe, someone egged his house in the spirit of Halloween.

    🙂 🙂 🙂

    Déjà vu all over again! Except that was in the summer wasn’t it?

    Is he still trying to find out what Sharon’s cameras are taping? 😉

  8. Reading from yesterday and thought you would find this interesting to say the least….

    Special Agent [Herbert] Hardy of the Illinois State Police.

    To the best of my knowledge Mr. Hardy is now retired from ISP?….along with a few others. If you bring up their names in conversation I’ll be happy to jump in and confirm that they too have retired…

  9. Or, toilet papering his trees, outside his house. Maybe that’s it.

    Sure hope not, though. Hope he’s seeing angelic spirits floating towards him, and it’s scaring the bejeevers out of him.

  10. VAN SUSTEREN: Now, we have heard, and maybe you could clarify this for me, that there was a police officer on this panel who knew Drew — Sergeant Peterson. Is that true or not?

    JAMES: He — there was a police officer on the panel, and he indicated at the time he knew or knew of Peterson. And he indicated to the panel that he thought that Peterson was a good policeman. He was charitable and helped his neighbors, and so on and so forth. So I think that — I think that might have influenced some of the panel members, but I don’t know that for sure.

    ————–

    I think this cop was a different guy, ‘on’ the panel.
    Hardy testified ‘in front of’ the panel (on behalf of ISP).
    How many either screwed up/swept up to get this kind of ruling?

  11. GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, HOST: “And I should tell the viewers that after you called me with this — and frankly, I missed it, and I thought it was extraordinary – – good work, Mark — but we went back and looked at the transcript from the coroner’s jury, the one from May 1. And just so that the viewers know, is that the Illinois State Police, Herbert Hardy, was testifying, and he says, in part, “The only thing we’re waiting for now is some phone records, to find out if certain phone calls were made when they said they were made.” – “There’s another part where even a coroner’s juror member said to the witness, to the Illinois State Police witness, “Are they verifying the phone records, correct, that the calls were made?” The witness, “Yes, those take quite a while to get. So yes, we’ve got phone records coming from her phone, his phone, Steve’s phone and the rest of it. So yes, we still have to verify that.”

  12. “The police officer was never at the death scene and was not present for the autopsy”

    11/08/2007 Mike Puccinelli (cbs2chicago.com) Reporting (VIDEO):
    “Coroner reviews study of Cop’s 3rd Wife’s Death”
    “Today officials released a document relating to the death of his 3rd wife. It’s 28 page transcript of an inquest where Kathleen Savio’s family believes Drew Peterson got away with murder.” – “The only police officer called to testify that day about that possibility, saying quote, CORONER: “Any signs of a struggle noted at the scene?” or defense wounds?” – POLICE OFFICER: “No, there was not” – CORONER: “Any signs of a struggle or defense wounds?” – POLICE OFFICER: “No, there was not.” – “But the report also notes that the police officer was never at the death scene and was not present for the autopsy where eight separate injuries were noted on Savio’s body.”

    And this also from http://www.acandyrose.com … related to my question above.

  13. Did he take an oath before this? How could he and still answer like that?
    It’s probably too late to take the pension (see DP), but isn’t it criminal to lie under oath?

  14. He testified at the inquest; however, he was not present at the scene of Kathleen’s death, nor was he present for the autopsy.

    So how did he know there was no sign of a struggle at the scene or no sign of struggle or defensive wounds when the autopsy was performed?

    My gosh, I would have made just as reliable a witness at that inquest. 🙄

  15. Liz, it sure makes ya wonder who this police officer was.

    Did he rely on something he was told? Why would he be testifying at the inquest? Wouldn’t that be hearsay?

    It makes no sense to me why someone who was not at the scene or the autopsy would have been asked to testify at the inquest.

    Hmm … Could it have been Stephen?

  16. I wonder how the panel members are chosen. It’s not like a regular jury call. I couldn’t find anything except the same blurb in almost all counties about it being 6 members of the ‘community.’

  17. Gatehouse, what happened at the GJ yesterday?

    Anyone new show up, or do you think they’re still listening to the wire tapes?

  18. Liz, that’s interesting. Is the panel selected for a specific time period and at the end of that time, a new panel is chosen?

    Do they call “witnesses” in addition to the panel?

    I don’t know how you could ask someone who wasn’t at the scene whether there was evidence of a struggle.

    Maybe this police officer must have been relying on what was reported by those who were there?

  19. Okay, I found something. 6 members are on the coroners inquest jury and are chosen just like regular court jurors; from the same pool.
    They hear the evidence from others (ie. Hardy, Doman, etc) and make the ruling.

    So the way I understand it there was a cop on the panel, and Hardy.

  20. “The testimony from Special Agent Herbert Hardy at the May 2004 coroner’s inquest of Kathleen Savio’s death painted the 40-year-old’s demise as anything but fishy.” – “And our investigation shows that basically, after the coroner’s report and toxicology that she died from drowning,” Hardy says” – “We believe that the laceration from her — that she sustained to the back of her head was caused by a fall in the tub,” Hardy said. “There was nothing to lead us to believe that anything else occurred.”

    So…he testified. But who is the ‘we’ he’s referring to if he is not part of the panel?

  21. This is what Hosey says:

    “O’Neil ran the show at Savio’s inquest, but the star player at the proceeding was Special Agent Herbert Hardy of the Illinois State Police. Hardy was dispatched to testify, even though he only played a small role in the investigation of the woman’s death. He did not talk to Peterson or Stacy, and he never met with friends or family of Peterson and Savio. He did not attend Savio’s autopsy and never made an appearance in the second-story bathroom of 392 Pheasant Chase Drive to inspect the death scene.”

    “Unanswered Cries,” Chicago Magazine

    By David Murray

    **********
    In the days immediately following her death, records show that state police, who had been brought in to investigate because the matter involved a Bolingbrook policeman, presented the case to then State’s Attorney Tomczak as a potential homicide. The Chicago Tribune has reported that a state police investigator in this case also appeared before a grand jury at that time. A spokesman for the state’s attorney will not comment on the grand jury, but adds that when the current state’s attorney took office half a year later, in the fall of 2004, his administration received no indication that the case was ongoing.

    A coroner’s jury also looked into the circumstances of Kathy’s death. The coroner’s jury system, now widely considered anachronistic, involves a hearing at which the coroner questions investigators and other witnesses in front of a six-person jury. The jury rules on the manner of death, and its ruling is often factored into the state’s attorney’s decision as to whether to pursue the case. (In January 2007, Illinois law was changed to make the use of an inquest optional.)

    In the hearing on Kathy’s death, Will County coroner Pat O’Neil questioned Sue Doman. According to the transcript, Sue said it was “very hard for me to accept” that her sister’s death was an accident, given the impending conclusion of the divorce case and in light of her history with Drew. “She was just terrified of him.”

    Next, state police officer Herbert Hardy represented the state police’s opinion that the death was an accident. He wasn’t the lead investigator in the case and had not visited the crime scene. But he said Drew Peterson had an alibi, corroborated by his wife, Stacy. “His current wife was interviewed, his job was interviewed, all those neighbors around in his area were—were talked to,” Hardy testified. “We have no reason to believe at this time that . . . he was not where he said he was.”

    After just two witnesses and O’Neil’s presentation of the pathology and toxicology reports, the jury took less than an hour (as one juror told Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren) to determine that Kathy’s death was accidental.

    O’Neil told Chicago he thought all along that the proper ruling would have been that the manner of death was “undetermined.” In the aftermath of the inquest, he recalls feeling “kind of empty.” (O’Neil, a Democrat, is up for reelection in November. Recently, his Republican opponent, Charles Lyons, has made the handling of the inquest an issue in the campaign.)

    Sue remembers feeling shocked and defeated. “We left with our heads down,” she says. The family believed there was nothing else to be done. Their overwhelming feeling was, “We lost.”

  23. But who is the ‘we’ he’s referring to if he is not part of the panel?
    ————-
    The ISP investigators.
    The coroner’s jury is a panel of will county citizens hearing from ISP, Doman, Mitchell, etc. and ruling on evidence received.

    Hardy was not on the jury, he testified in front of it. I think he said ‘we’ because he wasn’t on the scene, but had to include himself to look as if he was part of the investigative team.

  24. Hey, a while back I mentioned seeing something about Stacy telling two people about Kathleen’s death. This is what Hosey said:

    “After Stacy vanished at least two men came forward to say she had had conversations with them about Kathleen’s death”

    So … guesses?

    The Pastor and Harry Smith?
    The Pastor and Scott Rosetto?
    The Pastor and Steve Cesare?
    The Pastor and …

Mark Suppelsa said that he called it in to the news desk over at WGN..did anyone hear anything??????

    The Bolingbrook Police Department squads appear to be watching the activities of ROY TAYLOR at the Bychowski house. I am wondering if Roy is up to some Halloween pranks?

    Thanks for the heads up LT.

  26. Is anyone else trying to find the names of the six people on the panel at Kathleen’s inquest?

    One was Walter Lee James who states that there was also a cop on the panel. But that’s as far as I’ve gotten. 😦

  27. I remember seeing a page with their signatures somewhere . . . it was hard to read to get the actual names.

    That was long ago.

    And it might be my imagination but I don’t think so.

  28. WALTER LEE JAMES, JUROR AT SAVIO CORONER’S INQUEST: “at the time, we were given three options to either come to a decision as to whether it was natural, homicide or accidental. We did not have at the time the option of determining “undetermined” status …

    http://www.acandyrose.com

  29. Two people- Probably Schori and Smith as they saw her within that last week, and they had privileged information, which I still think is not hearsay.

    If you find the page with signatures maybe I can use the photoshop on it.

  30. Wife of a Bolingbrook Police Officer

    MIMS: Well one of the ladies who signed off on is named, her last name matches the same as a Bolingbrook cop and I know there are reports that there was a Bolingbrook police officer on the inquiry board but with the signatures that I’ve received from A and W, you can’t read the last three names on there and one of them was like a Cockleeono (sp?) or something like that but the one we are looking at is one of the female names on there with the last name is the same as a friend of his that’s a Bolingbrook cop.

  32. That’s what I get out of the Elizabeth name too, Facs.

    Used to have a link to Bolingbrook police officers list … might try to find that again and see what last name could be wife of BB police officer.

  33. Well, it looks like we are all pathetically late to the guessing game.

    Hedidit posted back in August that Drew’s “police bud” on the jury was Dennis Pratl from the Orland Park PD.

  34. Good for HDI!

    I still want to know who the wife of the police officer friend of Drew’s was.

    Have to go out … maybe she’ll be back and give us that info too … and the real names of the ones we’ve been guessing at.

  35. Mirrors, Must be a slow crime day in Bolingbrook if the police are watching Roy put brakes on a car. Are you a neighbor spying or something? If you are, I would be worried about my tax dollars at work if that is what they are really doing. How do you know they are not watching Drew so no more women go missing around Halloween. After all isn’t that what happened to Stacy last year?

  36. There is a Charles D. Hodges serving as field representative for the Metropolitan Alliance of Police.

    Metropolitan Alliance of Police 684 W. Boughton Road, Suite 204 • Bolingbrook, Illinois 60440

  37. Thanks Facs, yes I can see it now– Elizabeth maybe Samson-Verde then with Jim Pretto and Dennis Pratl and looks like one other guy I can’t make out.
    Walter called the cop a “he” so it must be the Pratl guy. Gotta wonder about him.

  38. I just read that there will be two seperate searches this weekend. One team on land and another doing a water search with the boat.

    Good luck to all searching!

    Again, I hope that Stacy listens to Drew’s plea and shows herself.

  39. Well, from what I understand it looks like B96 was advertising a contest where you could win tickets to their “Jingle Bash” if you trick or treat at Drew’s house.

    The cops came to his door to tell him to put his “No Trespassing” signs.

    Drew called Steve Dahl’s show and said that he had tried to get some tickets by claiming he was dressed as himself but it didn’t work.

    Dahl told Drew that B96 was more his demographic since they have more 17-19 year old girls listening and that once Drew is legally single, the date wtih Drew show can be revisted on his show.

  40. Drew called in a second time to say “trick or treat”. They gave him a Ludacris CD.

    The caller after Drew said he was dressed as a blue barrel.

    If you want to download and listen. Drew’s calls are towards the end
    =========================

    The ONLY thing “entertaining about that is BUZZ’s voice!

    He so sounds like Tommy Chong!!!!!

  43. I just want to comment on the Kathleen Savio case and why this was not looked into properly from day one and that is because Drew Peterson was not under suspicion of anything at the time.

    For all intents and purposes at the time of Kathleens death he was still a “good cop” and ALREADY ON THE SCENE when his collegues were notified , so he was able to direct the investigation to his advantage and his collegues would not look into anything with too much fervour as he already had all bases covered.

    His luck ran out however when he tried again with Stacy and as a result EVERYTHING is being looked into now !

    Considering his luck held out for 29 years, that must surely be a record of note !!

  44. I think that he had it better planned out than with Stacy, 2many.
    But there were a lot of domestic incidences and the sisters claim which was completely ignored etc etc.
    Good or bad cop it should have been investigated when they were in the middle of a multi million dollar financial settlement that is suddenly poof not a problem anymore.
    How many other cops are getting away with felonies?

  45. Yes, but if paperwork is not presented and Drew made sure nobody paid too much attention to finer details and had his buds vouch for his good character, that pretty much made it an open and shut case as it indeed turned out for him.

    Getting her demise on paper as an accidental drowning cleared the way for him to claim on Insurance policies and as you say the financial settlement all going his way.

    Nobody investigated anything because nobody was looking at Drew too closely at the time.

    Now they do the hornest nest has been stirred ……..

  46. Yes, 2many, but regardless of how much he oozed charisma and was loved by all, there had to be someone in law enforcement who thought enough about another human being’s life that they would have followed through on the death investigation by pursuing follow-up inquiries. Again, reverting back to the cell phone records, Hardy acknowledged them, said they were waiting to get them, and would compare them. Knowing this one bit of information about how it never went any further, where does that bring us to now? Did Hardy make it up because he was giving the guy a break, did someone convey that to him and he accepted it, or was it all just smoke and mirrors to get her death ruled an accident just because Peterson was a great guy? It wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to see that her sister was crying foul, but, yet, everyone must’ve just assumed that just because Kathleen didn’t get along with her ex, it wasn’t worthy of their attention. For Pete’s Sake, the guy was a sergeant on a suburban police department, not the Sheik of Arabia. Why did his ex-wife that her death was ramrodded through the system without a second though?

  47. It was all smoke and mirrors because Drew Peterson had ways and means to pervert the course of Justice.

    All that is what’s being looked into right now, hence the length of the investigation.

    Keep in mind had Stacy not disappeared the Kathleen Savio case would have never gone anywhere, let alone being reopened as it was already over and done with four years ago.

  48. I think Hardy just went along with everything, he had no clue. He dropped the ball, just waiting to retire.

    If Kathleen did anything it was to be strong, a fighter (who was frequently instigated) which can be spun in many ways by an ex. He admits he would just laugh at her and she’d get madder. So emotionally immature.
    I’m sure after 30 years in the system; one hand washes the other. At that time, I agree 2many, that might be all one had to hear was he was a cop and it was assumed he was a good one.
    But BB cops had the history on him, and they let the ball go too. Very wrong all around.

  49. These women had the misfortune to be married to Drew Peterson.

    He would have been charming when he swept them off their feet, the man of their dreams.

    Little did they know and by the time they did, they were tied down with small children and an easy target for his Sociopathic and Malignant character.

    There is a James Coughlin & Juli Coughlin listed as officers in the 2005 & 2007 annual report.

    Don’t know if that is the one Mims referred to, but they are the only “C” names that could possibly be husband and wife.

    Also, never did quite figure out why RICHARD BERG was called to testify, PO of over 20 years, I think he was on K-9 unit. Don’t know if he was the K-9 officer that Drew sold his dining room table set to that was pictured in the Enquirer.

    Below is Danya’s article about RICHARD BERG:

    *Update* Kathleen Savio’s sister testifies before grand jury
    May 15, 2008 · 9 Comments

    By Danya Hooker, dhooker@mysuburbanlife.com

    A sister of Drew Peterson’s deceased third wife testified Thursday before the grand jury investigating Kathleen Savio’s death and the disappearance of Peterson’s fourth wife, Stacy.

    Savio’s sister Anna Doman confirmed she had testified but declined to comment any further as she left the Will County Court Annex building Thursday.

    Bolingbrook police officer Rich Berg also testified Thursday and declined comment.

    Doman is the second family member called to testify before the grand jury. Last week, her sister Susan Doman testified, as well as Steve Maniaci, Savio’s boyfriend at the time of her death.

    Savio was found drowned in a bathtub in March 2004, shortly before she and Drew Peterson were to finalize the financial terms of their divorce. Although the death was ruled accidental at the time, investigators reopened the case in November after Stacy Peterson disappeared Oct. 28.

    An independent pathologist for Will County recently ruled the death a homicide. Police have not named a suspect.

    Drew Peterson is a suspect in his wife’s disappearance, which police are calling a potential homicide. He has denied any wrongdoing in either case and has not been charged with a crime.

  51. In the days immediately following her death, records show that state police, who had been brought in to investigate because the matter involved a Bolingbrook policeman, presented the case to then State’s Attorney Tomczak as a potential homicide.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Oke maybe above is your answer.

    Somewhere between Drew Peterson and the then State Attorney Tomczak the case went from a potential homicide to something not worthwhile investigating…………

  52. Let’s see, four years ago I believe Tomzcak had a problem with slandering someone, falsely arresting the Fox father, and his own father was being investigated for corruption. hmmm.

  53. A spokesman for the state’s attorney will not comment on the grand jury, but adds that when the current state’s attorney took office half a year later, in the fall of 2004, his administration received no indication that the case was ongoing.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Oke another point of interest.

    So between Kathleens death and the fall of 2004, her case went from a potential homicide to “no indication the case was ongoing”

    Would be interesting to see exactly at what point her case nose dived into obscurity and at whose directive (!!)

  54. There is a James Coughlin & Juli Coughlin listed as officers in the 2005 & 2007 annual report.

    ————–

    That could well be the last name of the six. It looks very close to that. How could that be maneuvered- two cops on the jury? They are chosen randomly I thought. Can the commissioner request members?

  55. So between Kathleens death and the fall of 2004, her case went from a potential homicide to “no indication the case was ongoing”

    Would be interesting to see exactly at what point her case nose dived into obscurity and at whose directive (!!)

    ************

    Okay, I can see the direction the investigation took, but why?

    She was, most likely, murdered by Peterson for financial reasons. With her gone, he gained a large amount of money. Was there any indication in any of her letters that she was afraid of him because he thought she may expose any wrongdoings he may have been involved with?

    If he was, in fact, involved with any wrongdoings, they certainly would have been tied-in with his job. Did it go beyond him – in other words, was there large amounts of money involved, possibly having to do with drug dealings and/or goods that included others. Others that he, in turn, could expose if he needed to call-in a few favors?

    Because, it seems it would have to involve other people in substantially unsavory dealings to warrant him getting a pass regarding his ex-wife’s death investigation.

  56. Without a doubt Drew would not have been getting a pass regarding his ex-wife’s death investigation just because he was such an amicable fellow as another poster already observed as well.

    Kathleen has openly said “Drew is a man with many secrets”

    How many secrets and what they entail are probably being investigated right now.

    His timeline has swelled to book size and at some point there were close to 100 investigators on the case.

    That should be a pretty good indication what they are looking at and what type of secrets Drew Peterson is harboring.

  57. Does anyone know if Steve Carcerano (once Drew’s neighbor) was ever a BBPO at one time? I also don’t think I have his last name spelled right.
    He was the locksmith who opened the door for
    Drew and another female neighbor to see what was going on with Kathleen.
    I remember two of Drew’s friends being mentioned as ex-cops. I think the other one was Mike Robinson. Yikes, could that be right? I have my suspicions about that guy..possibly helping Drew out in the Stacy disappearance. Either way, these two men seemed to owe Drew for favors at one time or another. Carcerano has moved away, and never wants to see Drew again from what I have heard. Just hearsay, but both have been before the GJ. Could Carcerano have been on the inquiry board..if he had been a Cop at that time. Perhaps I have this all wrong. Drat! jmo pj

    BOLINGBROOK — Drew Peterson’s Halloween started with a radio station’s trick but the embattled ex-cop said it wouldn’t put him off from dispensing treats to neighborhood children.

    “There will be candy available at the Peterson house for trick-or-treating fun,” Peterson said shortly after two people showed up at his door Friday morning to win a radio contest, followed by the cops pulling up to put a stop to the shenanigans.

    Peterson said radio station B96 (96.3 FM) told listeners the first people to trick-or-treat at his home would win a free cell phone.

    “The police heard about it,” Peterson said, and the law showed up to intervene.

    Police Chief Kevin McCarthy said the situation outside Peterson’s Pheasant Chase Court home had “really calmed down” by the afternoon and that the radio station agreed to pull the plug on its contest.

    “One of the lieutenants called the radio station and told them to knock it off,” McCarthy said, noting that Peterson has a “no trespassing” sign on his lawn and that interlopers risked arrest.

    McCarthy also pointed out that the village’s trick-or-treating hours did not begin until 4 p.m. McCarthy said he was under the impression that the radio station was giving away concert tickets to the contest winners.

    A call to 96.3 FM inquiring about the incident was transferred to a voicemail box in the marketing department. The station failed to return the call.

    Peterson’s next-door neighbor, Sharon Bychowski, a close friend of his missing wife Stacy Peterson, found it ironic that Peterson, a self-proclaimed “jokester,” seemed not to enjoy the radio station’s prank.

    “So the jokester can’t take a joke,” Bychowski said.

    BOLINGBROOK — A potential key piece to the Stacy Peterson puzzle is back in the neighborhood.

    Tom Morphey, the stepbrother of Drew Peterson and the man believed to have helped the serial marrier carry a suspiciously warm barrel out of his house hours after his fourth wife was last seen alive, is home again in Bolingbrook.

    Peterson even claims to have recently bumped into his stepbrother in a local Meijer store, and says his stepbrother was so scared he went “poof” and disappeared.

    Morphey’s girlfriend, Sheryl Alcox, disputes this account. She said she was with Morphey when they saw Peterson and, while Peterson has never been shy when he has seen her solo, he steered clear when he spotted her in the company of her live-in boyfriend.

    “He didn’t come near us that time,” Alcox said, adding, “Every single time he’s walked up to me in that store when I was by myself.”

    Morphey’s tie-in
    State police named Drew Peterson a suspect in the “potential homicide” of his fourth wife, Stacy, who vanished just over a year ago.
    Shortly after she disappeared, reports claimed Morphey helped Peterson carry a warm, blue barrel from Peterson’s bedroom to the driveway and his waiting Yukon Denali.

    Upon learning Stacy had been reported missing, Morphey was hospitalized after overdosing on sleeping pills. Peterson visited him in Naperville’s Edward Hospital.

    Morphey then became scarce.

    Alcox, at the time, said he was in “therapy.” Other sources said he was in police protective custody. Peterson has repeatedly said the authorities had put Morphey someplace to “dry out.”

    If Morphey is an important element in unraveling the mystery of what happened to Stacy, he has yet to tell his story to the special grand jury empaneled for that very purpose nearly a year ago, Alcox said.

    Back home
    State police spokesman Lt. Luis Gutierrez declined to comment on Morphey’s role in the investigation or whether he had been in police custody.
    “We’re not going to give that information out,” Gutierrez said. “We can’t comment on that issue.”

    Regardless of where he has been, Morphey is back now in his Thistle Drive home. Alcox would not say where Morphey was when he was gone, or why he wasn’t, but said the separation from her boyfriend was difficult.

    And Morphey was not the only one displaced after Stacy disappeared.

    “Me and my kids had to be gone for a while,” Alcox said.

    ‘She was fantastic’
    Alcox said she met Stacy Peterson soon after taking up with Morphey in 2000.
    “Stacy, yeah, she was wonderful, she was fantastic,” Alcox said as she insisted the young mother would never abandon her children to run off with another man, as Drew Peterson has accused her of doing.

    Even though her boyfriend has returned home, Alcox has said her life has not returned to normal.

    She does not know if it ever will, unless Peterson is charged with Stacy’s murder, she said.

    “I pray to God he will be,” she said. “I’ll be in court every day.”

  60. Bucket,

    Good Morning! Boy, I thought I was the only one that got up early on a Saturday. Just read article on line as well.

    Once again Peterson has a different angle on the story.

  61. Good luck to the searchers today, may they bring any lost or missing soul home today.
    Does anyone here know if they will be doing water searches today with the boat/sonar get-up thingy ?

    Peace Out

    Peterson’s stepbrother is back home

    November 1, 2008
    By JOE HOSEY Staff Writer and DAN ROZEK

    BOLINGBROOK — A potential key piece to the Stacy Peterson puzzle is back in the neighborhood.

    Tom Morphey, the stepbrother of Drew Peterson and the man believed to have helped the serial marrier carry a suspiciously warm barrel out of his house hours after his fourth wife was last seen alive, is home again in Bolingbrook.

    Peterson even claims to have recently bumped into his stepbrother in a local Meijer store, and says his stepbrother was so scared he went “poof” and disappeared.

    Morphey’s girlfriend, Sheryl Alcox, disputes this account. She said she was with Morphey when they saw Peterson and, while Peterson has never been shy when he has seen her solo, he steered clear when he spotted her in the company of her live-in boyfriend.

    “He didn’t come near us that time,” Alcox said, adding, “Every single time he’s walked up to me in that store when I was by myself.”…

  63. Morphey’s girlfriend says that Morphey has not appeared before GJ yet…

    If Morphey is an important element in unraveling the mystery of what happened to Stacy, he has yet to tell his story to the special grand jury empaneled for that very purpose nearly a year ago, Alcox said.

  64. An arrest coming soon, and, possibly, an explanation as to how things unfolded and why at Kathleen’s first death inquest.

  65. OK ANYONE HERE HAVE INFORMATION ON RESKO , I thought someone on here said he knows stuff of drew peterson if you have any links please post them please I need information.

    would appresiate it greatly 🙂

    Radio contest pulls its Peterson prank

    November 1, 2008
    By JOE HOSEY jhosey@scn1.com

    BOLINGBROOK — Drew Peterson’s Halloween started with a radio station’s trick but the embattled ex-cop said it wouldn’t put him off from dispensing treats to neighborhood children.

    “There will be candy available at the Peterson house for trick-or-treating fun,” Peterson said shortly after two people showed up at his door Friday morning to win a radio contest, followed by the cops pulling up to put a stop to the shenanigans.

    Peterson said radio station B96 (96.3 FM) told listeners the first people to trick-or-treat at his home would win a free cell phone.

    “The police heard about it,” Peterson said, and the law showed up to intervene.

    Police Chief Kevin McCarthy said the situation outside Peterson’s Pheasant Chase Court home had “really calmed down” by the afternoon and that the radio station agreed to pull the plug on its contest.

    “One of the lieutenants called the radio station and told them to knock it off,” McCarthy said, noting that Peterson has a “no trespassing” sign on his lawn and that interlopers risked arrest.

    McCarthy also pointed out that the village’s trick-or-treating hours did not begin until 4 p.m. McCarthy said he was under the impression that the radio station was giving away concert tickets to the contest winners.

    A call to 96.3 FM inquiring about the incident was transferred to a voicemail box in the marketing department. The station failed to return the call.

    Peterson’s next-door neighbor, Sharon Bychowski, a close friend of his missing wife Stacy Peterson, found it ironic that Peterson, a self-proclaimed “jokester,” seemed not to enjoy the radio station’s prank.

    “So the jokester can’t take a joke,” Bychowski said.

  67. prudancejuris // November 1, 2008 at 2:59 am

    Does anyone know if Steve Carcerano (once Drew’s neighbor) was ever a BBPO at one time? I also don’t think I have his last name spelled right.
    He was the locksmith who opened the door for
    Drew and another female neighbor to see what was going on with Kathleen.

    Can you tell me where you find this information? Steve’s always maintained in public (e.g., intereview with GVS) that a locksmith was called, not that he was the locksmith.

  68. I remember reading somewhere that, at one time, for a short time, Mike Robinson may have been a police officer.

    From: acandyrose.com

    Who is Mike Robinson? ~ ~ ~ ~

    GRETA: Whose Mike Robinson, is that the, is he a police officer?

    MIMS: I believe Mike Robinson was a police officer for a short time.

    GRETA: And now does what?

    MIMS: Heating and air I believe, heating and air conditioning.

  69. Did he have a criminal record before? Wouldn’t that have kept him from becoming a policeman?

    I don’t know … I’m just asking.

  70. Yes, a background check is definitely done before a recruit is put through the academy, neighbors are questioned, family members questioned.

    I don’t necessarily believe or think this is true about Mike Robinson being a one-time p.o., but I just wanted to point out that I, too, remember seeing that referred to somewhere, since it was asked by a blogger upscreen.

  71. Of course, he could have been a police officer and then decided the other side (the life of crime) was more to his liking. 🙂

    Rescue, do you know anything about Steve C. being the locksmith as opposed to being there when the locksmith arrived?

  72. I also found this online from November, 2007, referring to Morphey:

    Prosecutors have not called Morphey to testify before a grand jury examining the 23-year-old woman’s disappearance because he has “memory lapses” about loading the barrel into Peterson’s GMC Yukon Denali, the source said.

    Drew Peterson visited Morphey in the hospital, the source said.

    Last Friday, the Sun-Times reported that a neighbor told police he saw Drew Peterson and another man loading a barrel into the SUV.

    Illinois State Police have seized the Denali among other property taken from the Petersons’ Bolingbrook home. Tests conducted on the vehicle at the State Police laboratory had not been completed, a source said last week. But another source said police located pieces of blue plastic on the back end of the Denali.

  73. noway, I’ve read both, that Steve Carcerano was a locksmith, but that a locksmith was called to open Kathleen’s door.

    It can make your head spin faster than Linda Blair’s on the Exorcist!

  74. Come to think of it, you know what? I don’t ever remember reading anything about the individual (the “locksmith”) that opened the door. Whether he opened the door, gave Drew the bill and drove off, whether he waited outside with Drew while the neighbors went it, whether he went in with them. Never heard anything mentioned about him, come to think of it. Hmmmm.

  75. I’ve searched online and looked at both books for info about “the locksmith” but I’ve yet to see him identified anywhere.

    Maybe John McCain knows his name. Didn’t he get so used to calling people “Someone the Something” that her called Biden “Joe the Biden” the other day? 🙂

  76. The locksmith company was IDd on SYM.

    No mention of the actual locksmith’s name … and in Steve C.’s interview on Greta, he talked about the locksmith as if he were another person …

  77. Am watching video … so we can “see” DP saying that, not a print article in which he is “misquoted” … 😀

  78. Heres the article

    Stepbrother in Peterson case defended by family member
    By Matthew Walberg
    April 16, 2008

    Spurred by the most recent national TV appearance in which Drew Petersonsought to discredit a stepbrother who said he and Peterson moved a largecontainer the night Peterson’s wife vanished, the man’s brother said thepublic needs to know what’s really happening.
    Tom Morphey, Peterson’s stepbrother, has put his life on hold, spendingnearly six months in seclusion, as he tries to help authorities investigatingthe disappearance of the former Bolingbrook police sergeant’s wife, said hisbrother John.
    “Tom’s not a whack job,” John Morphey said in his first public interview.”It just kills me to see and hear this stuff about him. Drew says [Tom’s] aliar, but Tom was coming forward with his story to me and to other peoplebefore Stacy was even reported missing.”
    Tom Morphey, 40, has been in protective custody. His brother, 41, saidDrew Peterson enlisted Tom’s help to remove a large blue container from thePeterson home Oct. 28, the night Stacy, then 23, vanished.
    Authorities have called her disappearance a possible homicide and Petersona suspect. But Peterson, 54, who has not been charged, says his wife left foranother man. Peterson has downplayed Tom Morphey’s account, saying he has adrinking problem and struggles with mental illness.
    “I really don’t want to bad-mouth Tommy,” he said Friday night in aninterview with CNN’s Larry King. “He has some serious emotional issues. Hewas losing his house, losing his wife. He had a drinking problem. He had asuicidal problem. So I really – and he is a family member – so I reallydon’t want to bad-mouth him here.”
    John Morphey said his brother told him substantially the same story that hetold his friend and neighbor, Walter Martineck, who went public with hisaccount in December.
    John Morphey said his brother told him that he met Drew at a coffee shopnear Peterson’s home on the night of Oct. 28. They talked awhile, thenPeterson drove Tom Morphey to a nearby park and left him with a cell phone andinstructions not to answer if it rang, his brother said. Peterson drove off.After awhile, the phone rang, and the name “Stacy” appeared on the caller ID,Morphey said.
    “I believe he set my brother up with that phone call,” John Morphey said.
    When Peterson returned, the two men reportedly went to his house and movedthe container from the home to the back of Peterson’s 2005 GMC Yukon. JohnMorphey said his brother told him Peterson seemed very nervous as he drove himback to his home, a few minutes away in Bolingbrook.
    The following evening, Tom attempted suicide, John Morphey said.
    “I was on the phone that night when my brother swallowed those pills,” hesaid. “He told me, ‘That’s it, I’m done. I’m taking a bunch of pills.[Peterson] is going to get me anyway.’
    “He said that he thought he may have inadvertently helped dispose ofStacy’s body,” John Morphey said. “I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.”
    John Morphey said he quickly hung up the phone and called 911, andparamedics took his brother to a hospital for treatment.
    Morphey noted that for almost six months he has not spoken about Petersonor his brother, but after testifying for two hours Thursday before a specialgrand jury investigating Stacy’s disappearance – and after seeing Peterson’sCNN interview – he wanted to counter what he said is an inaccurate portraitof his brother.
    Morphey acknowledged his brother struggled with alcoholism and manicdepression but said he quit drinking after completing a six-monthrehabilitation program in the mid-1990s and began taking medicine fordepression.
    “He became this totally different person. He became a different Tom, a TomI’m proud of,” John Morphey said. “He has a past, like anybody, but for thepast 10 years or so, he’s been a responsible citizen, taking care of [hislongtime girlfriend’s] three boys, showing them right from wrong.”
    John Morphey said he believes Peterson reached out to Tom for help becausehe has always been too trusting and loyal. “He doesn’t say no to people, evenwhen he should,” John Morphey said. “He’s loyal to a fault. Put it this way:His sophomore year of high school, he was playing football [at Hinsdale SouthHigh School] and one of the guys on his team picked up the ball and ran thewrong way. Tom blocked for him.”
    For his part, John Morphey said he supports the search efforts led by StacyPeterson’s sister, Cassandra Cales, and Roy Taylor, the son of Drew Peterson’sneighbor.
    “Cassandra and Roy are heroes,” he said. “I’m behind them 100 percent.”
    He recently let searchers use a boat he and Tom, both avid fishermen,restored together. Embedded in the varnish is a picture of John and hisbrother as young kids, holding up fish they’d caught.
    “We are very happy that we have his support in finding Stacy,” said PamBosco, a spokeswoman for Stacy Peterson’s relatives. “I think it makes a bigstatement on the case, and backs up what we’ve been saying all along.”
    Peterson’s neighbor, Sharon Bychowski, said John Morphey called severalweeks ago.
    “He said, ‘I would like to offer you my boat.’ It’s been used pretty muchevery day this week,” she said.
    Morphey said he believes his brother will be “thrilled” to know the boat isbeing used to help find Stacy.
    “The boat’s a lot like my brother. When we got it, people didn’t think itcould ever amount to anything, and now it’s being used for such an honorablepurpose as this.”

  79. Morphey noted that for almost six months he has not spoken about Peterson or his brother, but after testifying for two hours Thursday before a specialgrand jury investigating Stacy’s disappearance – and after seeing Peterson’s CNN interview – he wanted to counter what he said is an inaccurate portrait of his brother.

    The way I’m reading this, it was John Morphey who testified – not Tom.

  80. Maybe he never appeared before the GJ in a literal sense. Maybe he was at one location via videoconference.

    Just a thought.

  81. Because you don’t listen to what every other witness is a case has to say, and then listen to the man who says he helped move the body.

    It just wouldn’t make sense. IMO

  82. Considering there are about 5 or 6 different “locksmith” stories circulating, it is still not overly clear who actually opened the door that night.

    If a locksmith was indeed called that night, wouldn’t this person have given very important evidence at the original hearing, so why is it still so unclear who actually did what to the front door of Kathleens home the night she was discovered dead.

    Funny there was also a big discussion on another Board with Joel Brodsky re Drews ability as a lock picker and his lock picking kit with Joel Brodsky stating to pick a lock with a lock picker would take a “couple of hours” and Drews lock picking kit was just a cost saving gadget to benefit home owners from Police having to break down their doors. (!!).

    Joel also stated he ask a locksmith company (and gave a name) for their advise re his statement.

    Now why did Joel not just ask the same locksmith that opened the door that night.

    I’m sure that man would remember that particular occasion if a woman is found dead inside (!!)

  83. Yes, great pains were taken to explain that although Drew does own a set of lock-picking tools and received some training in picking locks, that he only ‘fooled around with’ it one time and never really learned to use the set. And yes, I’ve seen the statements he’s made about how very, very long it takes to actually pick a lock. Quite a bit of fuss.

  84. Re: Noway406 Nov 1st. 2:02pm question:
    As far as Steve Carcerano being the locksmith that opened the door. I remember reading something that I thought Ric Mims had mentioned about Steve Carcerano knowing how to pick a lock like Drew. That Drew may have taught Carcerano how to pick a lock. Drew himself had been in and out of Kathleen’s house a few times, while Kathleen was at work..Ric was keeping an eye on Kathleen’s car at work. (Thats when they were friends then) I just saw this info recently again,..perhaps it was mentioned in the book Armstrong did for Drew. Why wasn’t there more information about the locksmith’s name that was supposedly called to Kathleen’s house. It would not surprise me one bit if Carcerano helped Drew out by picking the lock. They were close friends at the time. With all the names thrown out there back last year, until tonight from the one above post, I have never heard the name of the so called locksmith
    that was called to the residence. I find that very strange. You can check with Ric Mims, he sure knew how good Drew was with his locksmith kit. This is what I remember. Perhaps my details are fuzzy. jmo

  85. Takes a couple of hours to pick a lock? Even if just one hour, where is that in the story? …it took ages, it was cold, yada yada yada.

  86. Funny to me that the newspapers report the trickortreat radio shennanigans, police called and so forth, when the interesting story is how he called steve dahl not once but twice afterwards, and what a particularly pathetic figure he posed.

    Has he had his last limo ride?

  87. bucket,

    Good morning!
    I was listening to Steve Dahl show at work on Friday. At times during the conversation, Peterson’s voice seemed a bit shaky or nervous.

    Just tried getting into the “Help Us Find Stacy Peterson and got this message…

  88. Hiya whitey!

    LOL I’m a fraud….I’m not getting up very early, I’m 6 time zones ahead of you.

    ??? could be technical?

  89. Hi everybody, and a good afternoon to you, Bucket.

    Shaken when the police turned up? I hope he has to be scooped up into a basket when they come for him with charges! And, to be above to see it on tv would make it extra special!

  90. I seriously doubt that they will arrest DP at his
    residence. Too much risk of it turning into a spectacle. Yeah yeah I know everyone wants to see it. It will happen during a court appearance or as he is arriving at one. At this point I am starting to doubt any arrest without the body of SP, and now rumors abound of Tom Morphey
    not testifying before the GJ.

    Hearsay smearsay. I find it difficult to believe that the States Attorney is waiting for a bill to pass to arrest DP for KS’s murder. They will need alot more than her statements made about DP’s abusive behavior. Sure sounds like they are putting all thier eggs into one basket.

    The GJ will probably carry on into the new year at the rate its going.

    This case needs a BIG TIME PRAYER !

  91. I think the significance of the passing of the hearsay law wouldn’t involve statements of absuive behavior, but more likely Stacy’s statements to the Pastor and one other individual that Drew had killed kathleen.

    If prosecution could give the judge reason to believe that Stacy was killed to keep her from testifying against Drew in Kathleen’s murder, then that hearsay would become admissable in court.

    As far as I know, the law would only come into play as it pertains to murder charges against drew for killing Kathleen.

  92. I agree Fac’s however, a judge would still need to allow it. Oh if they could just find SP. I think he would be arrested immediately.

    The Dana Pretzer Show On Scared Monkeys Radio – Listen LIVE Tonight at 9PM Eastern

    Guests Include Drew Peterson and Attorney Joel Brodsky, Victim’s Rights Advocate Jacque Hollander, Author Fred Rosen, WNDB Radio News Director Mark Williams and Tim Miller of Texas EquuSearch Discussing The TES Return To Orlando

    Dana brings us a massive show this week with some high-profile guests:

    Drew Peterson (husband of missing Stacy Ann Peterson) and his attorney Joel Brodsky comment on the news media reports of Drew’s pending indictment and arrest.

    Jacque Hollander, victim’s rights advocate and rape victim, updates us on her case.

    Author Fred Rosen discusses his new book, Deadly Angel.

    Mark Williams, WNDB Radio News Director, updates us on the Caylee Anthony case.

    Tim Miller of Texas EquuSearch shares details on the TES return to Orlando, coming later this week.

    **********************************

    So…if you can bear to listen to more whining by Drew and Joel and more pandering and fawning from Dana, give it a listen.

    Tim Miller’s interview will undoubtedly be more interesting. 🙂

  94. IMHO, they HAD a body when Kathleen died. They blew it big time. Sounds like all the clues were there to begin with, but nobody cared, nobody paid attention and nobody followed through.

    I’ve read enough about “no body” prosecutions lately to surmise that LE will go the extra miles needed to cement in the minds of jurors that, even though Stacy’s remains may not have been found, all evidence points to her murder. A man shouldn’t be allowed to walk free because there’s no body. At least, give the jurors a chance and let them decide. Not pursuing it because us armchair detectives have blogged pro and con doesn’t make it. Let the jury sort through the evidence and make the conclusions. Not the bloggers.

  96. Sorry … hit submit before I was done.

    What previous connection to Drew was there (if any).

    Interesting (to me) how close his last name is to Aikin (as in Stacy’s aunt).

  97. Hi All!

    Just wanted to let everyone know that this weekend went well. Sat we had more searchers show than last week and they all searched with an amazing amount of determination. The K9 SAR team was with them on Sat and also went out alone today to search.

    Next week we will be having a professional team come in so we will not be having a volunteer search ( the areas they will be in are too dangerous for volunteers). We had thought about doing a seperate volunteer search but are going to give our entire attention to the professional team, I hope you understand.

    Thank you again to all who came out and searched, and to all who kept us in your prayers. I will be posting in regards to the next volunteer search as soon as I can.

    Please keep the dogs, their handlers, and the rest of the Search and Rescue team members in your thoughts this week as they prepare for the upcoming search. Thank you!

  98. noway,

    Thanks for posting the messsage, had seen it on the other blog. I just read the crud on the blog.

    There’s a saying that goes, “time heals all wounds”. However, it seems it may take forever, for the deep wounds to be healed.

    It’s time for all to regain the focus which is to find Stacy Peterson.

    Just a rumor. He said, she said, etc.

  100. Don’t forget, please, to focus on the reason why Kathleen was buried as an “accident” victim in 2004, when it was obvious she was beaten to a pulp the day she was found in a bath tub. Because, that’s where the questions lie. The evidence was there all along, and it’s unimaginable that even her sister couldn’t convince the officials that Kathleen’s life was worth a thorough investigation. Why did Peterson get a pass the first time, who’s responsible, and what’s going to be done about that?

  101. rescue,

    To answer your questions…..IMO…

    Good old boys club……..

    Seems like BB, coroner, old Will County states attorney and possibly ISP…….

    Glasgow……….

  102. I wonder if anyone has officially complained about this cover up ? BTW Rescue I finally got a response from BBPD via email. Basically told me if I had “evidence” of any incompetence,misconduct or cover ups to contact guess who ? Illinois States Attorney’s Office or the FBI.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++

    How do we know that was the first time DP got a pass ??

    Maybe the lenghty investigation because he got passes before ?

    Why was he reinstated after he ratted out one of his own and put the man’s life in danger ?

    Doesn’t that look like another pass already ?

  104. For those who didn’t listen to Pretezer, there was nothing new. Joel accused Glasgow of speaking out about an arrest because of the impending election and in the next breath praised him…referred to him as “Jim”.

    They talked a little about media coverage, Geraldo, gun charges being bogus, rehash of the polygraph results, etc.

  105. Thanks, Facs … I forgot to turn it on … glad I didn’t miss much.

    The locksmith info is the same as was posted at SYM.

    I haven’t heard from Bash as to why she thinks the locksmith and Steve Carcerano are one and the same …

    And Fuzz, thanks for the update on the searches.

  106. Dang, I’m sorry for not getting back to you sooner about the locksmith query, Noway! My brain must be on vacation in a *much* warmer place than the rest of me is stuck in right now… 😦

    So far, the ONLY place I have seen it mentioned that Steve Carcerano actually *was* the “locksmith” that opened Kathleen’s home that night is in the NY Post article, excerpt below:

    ***
    On March 1, 2004, Peterson was bringing the boys to Savio when he found the home locked. He asked a former neighbor, Steve Carcerano, a locksmith, to open the door.

    ***

    At this point, I’m thinking the reporter might have just gotten their notes mixed up. I just thought it was strange when I first read the article, and since it kinda stuck in my mind, I was wondering if there was possibly more to it. I mean, when you think about it, so far Steve & DP are the only ones on record who were actually “there” when the “locksmith” came and did his or her open sesame magic on Kathleen’s locked abode… so what’s one more lie between best buddies/partners in crime?

    Hurm… has anyone come across anything that mentions *specifically* which door to Kathleen’s home was breeched by the “locksmith” du jour? Was it the front, back or garage door?

    And where in sam dickens did the name of the alleged locksmith suddenly appear? I was all over JB’s arse trying to get that info when he was still playing paddywhack the queries at SYM. Where did the info come from, and how reliable, or not, is it?

    Gotta admit it plum shocked the shitake mushrooms right out of me when I saw what might actually *finally* be the answer to a query I posted so dang long ago just tossed out matter-of-factly in a post here by a drive-by…

    So, if the info is accurate, *THANK YOU* mystery poster!!! 🙂

    However, if it’s not, then I say we tar and feather that miserable lying sack of shitake mushrooms… though I must admit I’m more partial to the idea of the alpha hotel writhing in agony as they slowly sink into a lime pit whilst “The Best of William Shatner” blares loudly in their ears. That’s probably a little too over the top though, huh?

    *SIGH*

  107. OOPSIE! Just realized that it wasn’t a “mystery poster”- it was Facs!

    Hurm… maybe I should be the one who gets tarred and feathered! :0

    So, where *DID* you pick up this info anyhoot, Facs? Did JB finally have an all-too-brief moment of clarity, or what? 😉

  108. Hello Basherette,

    I remember this as well about who opened the door at Kathleens:

    ***

    On March 1, 2004, Peterson was bringing the boys to Savio when he found the home locked. He asked a former neighbor, Steve Carcerano, a locksmith, to open the door.

    ***

    After that the locksmith story got more and more complicated (!!)

    I also remember you could not get your simple question answered about who actually opened the door or what the locksmiths name was.

    What could be so difficult for Drew to remember who opened the door ???

    Unless of course so many lies were told that Drew/Steve/Joel can’t get their story straight and an “official version” had to be made up at a later date.

    Sort of like the time line ………….

    My guess is still no locksmith was called at all.
