Your Thread – November 10

Sorry this is late! Here’s Monday’s thread.

Also, here’s the press release from Drew Peterson’s publicist Glenn Selig regarding today’s Dr. Phil show, which will feature the Peterson case. The show airs at 4 p.m. in the Chicago area.

(PRNewsChannel) / Los Angeles, Calif. and Chicago, Ill. / Drew Peterson has submitted to a lie detector test for a book, sat across the couch from ‘Today’ show host Matt Lauer for tough questions and answered live phone calls on ‘Larry King Live,’ but perhaps in the boldest move yet to prove his innocence the former police sergeant accused in the disappearance of his wife Stacy appears on ‘Dr. Phil‘ in front of a studio audience. ‘Dr. Phil’ is the second highest rated syndicated program in the US.  Dr. Phil McGraw holds an M.A. degree and Ph.D. in clinical psychology with a dual area of emphasis in clinical and behavioral medicine.  The program that’s being billed by the show as a “daytime exclusive” airs Monday.

“Drew has maintained from the start that he had nothing to do with either Stacy Peterson’s disappearance and Kathleen Savio’s death,” says Glenn Selig, Peterson’s publicist and spokesperson.  “He wanted to take Dr. Phil’s questions.  He was invited to appear on the program and he agreed.”

Selig, who was in Los Angeles when the show was taped late last month along with Peterson’s criminal defense attorney Joel Brodsky who appears briefly on Monday’s program, says the live studio audience members were riveted by Peterson’s responses.

“This is the first time Drew has been examined like this,” says Selig.  “I think people watching at home will find the program equally compelling.”

‘Dr. Phil’ is a nationally syndicated television program.  Check local listings for air times and channels.

  1. DP on Dr. Phil today.
    Tomorrow , another court hearing for DP.
    House/senate back in action this week.
    Keep your fingers crossed on Hearsay bill.

  2. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

    Derek Armstrong

    “I think Drew Peterson had everything to do with the disappearance of Stacy, whether it was because she ran away or because he harmed her. I think he is a sociopath,” Derek says during a taped interview. He gives his impressions of the former sergeant. “He was there to talk about his past, his triumphs, how great of a cop he was, how great a husband he was. When people call him a monster in the media, I think Drew Peterson actually likes it. Any type of celebrity is fine by him, as long as you don’t call him a liar. He doesn’t mind being the villain, as long as he’s the famous villain.”

    Derek joins Dr. Phil and Drew in the studio. “Did you come away with a feeling, a conclusion, about what you think happened in this case?” Dr. Phil asks.

    “I haven’t reached a final conclusion. I’m actually still investigating. His interviews with me did not make him look particularly good,” Derek replies.

    “Why did they not make him look good?” Dr. Phil inquires.

    “One of the things he said to me — he boasted about it — was, ‘I’m pretty good at the con,’ and that came from his police days.”

    Dr. Phil faces Drew. “Did you say that?” he asks.

    “I don’t remember saying that,” Drew says. “When I was working undercover, I had a pretty good ability to con people into believing I was something other than what I was.”

    “Can you con people?” Dr. Phil asks.

    “I believe, yes,” Drew answers.

    “Are you conning the police now?” Dr. Phil inquires.

    “No.”

  3. “It’s also been alleged that Stacy told her sister that she feared for her life. Do you believe she said that to her sister?” Dr. Phil asks.

    “Again, I don’t know. If she was trying to set me up for some sort or divorce or anything, that might have been a way to do it.”

    “In that you did have a pattern of calling each other all the time, why did you not call her the day she disappeared?” Dr. Phil asks.

    “I did, but she wanted her space,” Drew says. “That day I gave her, her space.”

    There’s actually quite a few pages of this stuff up at the Dr. Phil site. I’m going to stop copying now tho, since it’s easy to find there and…unfortunately, it all looks like statements we’ve heard before. :(

  4. Just a repeat of what he’s already said, almost word-for-word.

    “It is alleged that Stacy told one of her pastors that Drew killed Kathleen,” Dr. Phil says, reading from a graphic that appears on the big screen behind him. He turns to Drew. “Do you believe that happened?”

    “I don’t know. I can’t even answer for that conversation,” he replies. “I know for a fact that she had a deep crush on this pastor.”

    Drew Peterson is so up his own butt, he is delusional if he thinks statements like this are going to endear him to the public. He’s only cementing his cold, callous image with them. He can say and do whatever he pleases. His wives are dead and can’t defend themselves. This remark might not prove he’s a murderer, but it sure does prove he is a heartless, uncaring, unfeeling individual.

    He’s now, apparently, allowing his children to be used even more to his benefit. Come on, would anyone expect his kids to say they believe their father is a cold, calculated murderer, who took the lives of their mothers? Or, would you expect them to say what they did, living with a control freak like he is? I think that’s a no brainer!

    “A lot of hard things happened, and I had to deal with a lot. Despite all that, I got through everything. I’m a lot stronger from it,” says 15-year-old Thomas. “He’s more of a friend than a dad, and at times, more of a dad than a friend. He’s a great guy.”

    What’s interesting about that remark is that this same statement has been in print regarding Peterson’s son, Stephen. I believe that Tom was scripted to say exactly what he did!

    Those who know Drew and Steve Peterson say the men are more like best friends than father and son. Drew was Steve’s best man at his wedding last August.

  5. And sorry, upthread I said that the Dr. Phil link was to a series of video clips. There are a couple clips there but mostly it’s a written recap of the show broken down into sections.

  6. “You recognize this is three women and three separate sets of abuse allegations,” Dr. Phil points out.

    “Then why wasn’t this reported when it was happening, and why wasn’t I arrested?”

    That is a very, very good question. Maybe the current law enforcement officials will be able to answer that. And soon.

  7. No kidding, Rescue. It’s sad that poor Thomas states that he “…got through everything”. Kid, it’s far from over…

    And, nice of Drew to use the kids yet again. He claims they can’t play in the front yard but he’d fine pimping them out on national TV for his defense.

  8. I was reading an old interview with Vicky Conolly yesterday. It reminded me that it wasn’t just Stacy and Kathleen who received death threats from Drew. In addition, her home was also bugged and she was also stalked during the marriage.

    How can he possibly think that anyone believes him?

  9. Facs – he used these remarks quite frequently: I can’t answer to that, I can’t answer to those conversations, I don’t know….

    That’s okay, though. Because someone, many someones do know, and they can help refresh his memory.

    What kind of a man allows his minor children to be exploited on television by propping up their poor excuse of a father with glowing remarks? He’s a great guy, but their mothers are what, abusive, boob-job living runaways? Sorry, I don’t believe the boys were speaking freely and honestly.

  10. “I think Stacy ran off with somebody else. I think she got tired of the life she was living. It was a little bit overwhelming for her. She had four kids. She was 23 years old. She just had a situation where her sister died a terrible death from cancer, and I think a combination of all those things was too much for her, and she ran off,”

    Nothing new here. What does strike me though is that he always attributes her desire to leave with being ‘overwhlemed’ with her parenting role. This, even though he swears she was an excellent and devoted mother. It’s bizarre that he attributes her leaving him to her grief over Tina’s death. That doesn’t make sense on any level.

    What he never mentions and what really makes sense is that she was tired of him, that she no longer wanted him, that she had sought out a lawyer and planned to divorce him and take the kids with her.

    There are dozens of people who will attest to that, and yet he never will admit to that fact or how it could have played into his story about her running away. If he wanted to make up a believable story, why not go with the most realistic motivation she might have for leaving?

    Because that’s what he couldn’t face, that’s what he refused to accept, and that’s why he killed her.

  11. Hi you 2!

    Thanks for the link. What he says about getting Tom Morphey a job should be verifiable (or not ;-) ) . Sounds like more b*llocks.

    Is the court date this week for jury selection?

  12. If Drew was being so kind and supportive, why on earth would Tom make up this incredible lie before Stacy was known to be missing?

  13. Poor kids. That “buddy” thing with his kids is common enough and probably true. His false bonhomie covers his dealings with them, too. The Judge behaved similarly…one trick he employed when the children were small was if they asked him something for which his answer would be “no”, he’d pretend not to understand what they were saying, and then distract them. I saw them tremble with frustration .

  14. Yeah, I can’t imagine a narcisist like Drew taking on the role of a loving father. I can imagine him being authoritarian and then the “goofy friend” in turns. Whichever is going to feed his need at the moment.

    Bucket, I’ve heard Drew’s story about taking Morphey to apply for a job before. But remember, Morphey was “too intoxicated” to actually apply…so there’s nothing that can be verified. Naturally.

  15. On the Dr. Phil thing he said ” they had to cancel the interview”…..which indicates that there was an appointment. This could, of course be one of those embellishments of his…..but he said it. On tv.

  16. Facs – this time, on Dr. Phil, he said: He was so intoxicated or high on something that I had to cancel the interview, and we couldn’t follow through with it,” Drew responds.

    He didn’t say he had to call and cancel the interview. He merely said he had to cancel it. At the local Jewel, for example, there’s an in-store computer screen to sit at and apply for a job. Same with Target.

    So, let’s move on to the next ridiculous statement!

  17. Here’s an idea: Drew knew that Morphey lost his job and needed money. When Morphey calls Drew and asks for a ride to a job interview, Drew agrees. But once Tom is in the car with him, Drew hits him with a different proposition. Drew will pay him if he helps him out with something, but he has to be quiet about it. Morphey agrees and blows off the interview.

    The rest you know about…

  18. Remember, if we believe Tom’s friend, Walter Martinek, Tom tried to give him the money that Drew had paid him for his help.

    * * * *
    I seem to recall that we heard that partiular slant from Brodsky in the first instance. DP just blamed her sister’s death.

  20. “Kathleen also addressed letters to prosecutors saying, ‘His next step is to take my children away or kill me instead.’ Did she do that?” Dr. Phil asks Drew.

    “Kathy loved writing letters to people, and telling on people,” he replies. “Whether she wrote these letters or not, I don’t know. I can’t answer for that.”

    Ahh, so it was Kathleen’s love of letter writing and ‘telling on people’ that made her beg for help from the assistant State’s Attorney. Kind of a hobby-type thing. Ah, OK.

  21. “I was a policeman. Policeman do not get involved in physical confrontations with their wives…”

    Trying…to keep a straight face.

    Next on Dr. Phil. ‘Allegations of Sexual Abuse Among the Clergy.’

    “I was a priest. Priests do not abuse altar boys…”

  22. “I did, but she wanted her space,” Drew says. “That day I gave her, her space.”

    I wonder when Stacy allegedly told him she wanted her space. And is it just more bad luck on Drew’s part that of all days, he gaver her space on that day …

  23. None of this nonsense on Dr. Phil proves he murdered two of his wives. But, he’s digging himself in deeper with his jury pool because he’s delusional.

    I want to know if Kathleen’s second and third autopsies will show that she had anything under her fingernails that might be helpful. Or, if there’s any marks anywhere on her body that match an object that a police officer might carry with them – a gun, baton, handcuffs. I want to know if there is any way to determine if there’s any imbedded tissue from a killer’s beating within the victim’s tissue.

    I want to know if there’s any way he can prove that he wasn’t near Kathleen’s house during the approximate time of her death, and the hours afterwards that were needed to clean up the scene. I want to know if law enforcement can prove or disprove his whereabouts by cell phone records (pings), and/or his official movements while on duty during the time of her approximate death. I want to know what calls he made, either personal or official, during the estimated time of her murder, and where he was when these calls were made.

    I want to know how he is going to prove he was home that night with Stacy, with Stacy now being gone? Stephen or Jennifer, perhaps?

    I want to know if he obtained a copy of his cell phone records and can prove, once and for all, that the rumors are not true and that no calls were made to him by Stacy, something she told she did to Pastor Schori.

    I want to know what law enforcement asked him during the approximately 65 minutes he was interviewed by an investigator after he orchestrated the discovery of Kathleen’s body.

    I want to know what law enforcement asked Stacy during her interview.

    I want to know if Stephen and Jennifer were in the house, whether they were questioned, and what they were asked during law enforcement’s investigation of Kathleen’s death.

    I want to know why the investigating officer never subpoenaed the phone records in the first place, and why Officer Hardy merely brushed off the fact that they were still waiting for them.

    I want to know why the death inquest was concluded before pertinent, important information wasn’t yet available that would back up the alibi of the victim’s ex-husband, and why six panel members were allowed to sign off on something that wasn’t complete.

    I want to know why he portrays himself as a victim of Kathleen’s abuse and trashed her in a book, when it was he that left her for a 17 year old, and it was she that was found dead prior to the resolution of a divorce settlement. It was he that gained financially from her death.

    I want to know why Alex Morelli, his ex-partner, who’s also a witness to Kathleen’s antiquated Will, no longer wants anything to do with him.

  24. Those are all valid and good questions, Rescue and hopefully LE has asked them and has recorded the answers into evidence.

    I’m OK with not knowing all the answers. But I really hope that investigators have looked into those things.

  25. RE: rescueapet 11/10 (HARD HITTING QUESTIONS)
    I for one would love to see this man answer even one of your questions. I think he is guided by what he can answer and how he should say it by Brodsky. Too bad, you can’t be the Lawyer to grill him. He would be so done! jmo pj

    Also, if anyone can figure out the link I left and why it won’t come up, please let me know. The link seemed chopped up, from what I typed out.. Oh well, I’m not exactly ‘Computer Material’ LOL pj

  26. Here’s the spin on today’s appearance. Yawn. Dr. Phil is stumped?

    Where in the whole interview did Peterson say or do anything that proves he DIDN’T murder either woman? I’d say it’s just ratings and bunk.

    Dr. Phil: ‘You Have to Make Up Your Own Mind’ on Drew Peterson
    ‘Dr. Phil’ focuses an entire show on Drew Peterson as he faces questions about his missing wife, Stacy, and the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.

    Drew Peterson on ‘Dr. Phil.’

    Los Angeles, Calif. and Chicago, Ill. / After sitting across from Drew Peterson on the ‘Dr. Phil’ Hollywood set for a taping of the talk show, host Dr. Phil McGraw seemed stumped on Peterson’s guilt or innocence: “You know…you have to make up your own mind,” he tells viewers through the camera lens.

    Dr. Phil McGraw stared into Peterson’s eyes for more than one hour as the former police sergeant answered a barrage of questions about the disappearance of his wife, Stacy, and the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.

    At the end of it, McGraw, known affectionately as “Dr. Phil,” acknowledges there is no evidence of a crime or, even if there was, that Drew Peterson was involved. He concluded: “It defies logic. It defies common sense. Something’s not right here. I just don’t have an answer.”

    It’s been more than a year since Stacy Peterson disappeared from her Bolingbrook, Ill. home leaving behind a husband and her children. Though Drew Peterson has been implicated by police as being involved in her disappearance, Mr. Peterson has steadfastly denied any involvement. He also has said that he had nothing to do with the death of Kathleen Savio. He has not been charged with any crime.

    Since Stacy disappeared, Drew Peterson has submitted to a lie detector test for a book, sat across the couch from ‘Today’ show host Matt Lauer for tough questions and answered live phone calls on ‘Larry King Live,’ but perhaps in the boldest move yet to prove his innocence, the former police sergeant appeared on ‘Dr. Phil’ in front of a studio audience.

    “The media has portrayed Drew as being quite sinister but I think Dr. Phil and the studio audience saw someone quite different,” says Glenn Selig, Peterson’s publicist and spokesperson. “He is a trained police officer who has learned not to show emotion to the public. He jokes even about serious matters to cope with crisis. But around people he knows and loves, he’s quite different.”

    ‘Dr. Phil’ is the second highest rated syndicated program in the US. Dr. Phil McGraw holds an M.A. degree and Ph.D. in clinical psychology with a dual area of emphasis in clinical and behavioral medicine.

    “Drew has maintained from the start that he had nothing to do with either Stacy Peterson’s disappearance or Kathleen Savio’s death,” says Selig. “He wanted to take Dr. Phil’s questions. He was invited to appear on the program and he agreed. I hope this show lets people see that there’s more to Drew than people know.”

    Selig, who was in Los Angeles when the show was taped late last month along with Peterson’s criminal defense attorney, Joel Brodsky, who appeared briefly on Monday’s program, says the live studio audience members were riveted by Peterson’s responses.

    “This is the first time Drew has been examined like this,” says Selig. “I think people watching at home found the program equally compelling.”

  27. Man, you can’t read that press release and not laugh. I mean, belly laugh. It’s pathetic. The audience was riveted?

    “The media has portrayed Drew as being quite sinister but I think Dr. Phil and the studio audience saw someone quite different,” says Glenn Selig, Peterson’s publicist and spokesperson. “He is a trained police officer who has learned not to show emotion to the public. He jokes even about serious matters to cope with crisis. But around people he knows and loves, he’s quite different.”

    Yeah, he’s quite different around people he loves alright. As long as they’re in the age range of 22 years old and he can love them with all his might.

    Except for his wife, who he loved to death.

  28. Grrrr. Stupid tornado warning! Will someone please update us if there is anything we haven’t heard before on Dr. Phil?

  29. Wow, way to take a quote out of context and cobble together a paragraph to make it look as if Dr. Phil agrees that there is no evidence of a crime.

    The quote from Dr. Phil that is in the bolded part above is from a closing statement he makes while walking alone backstage and is incomplete as given above. This is the whole sentence:

    “Well, you have to make up your own mind. As I said, just for me, from my opinion and I’ve studied the situation a lot…it defies logic. It defies common sense. Something’s not right here. I just don’t have an answer.”

    It’s obvious in the clip that he is referring to Drew’s account of things not the suspicion surrounding Drew Peterson.

  30. Maybe Dr. Phil looked “stumped” to Glenn. I think to everybody else he looked disgusted and saddened. It’s very clear to me from his questions and demeanor (and his closing statements) that he strongly suspects that Drew is guilty.

    Even in the clips you can see Dr. Phil telling Drew that his answers don’t make logical sense.

  31. Selig can spin all he wants Facs.

    Selig can’t answer the question of whether or not Drew Peterson was at or near Kathleen’s house at the time she was murdered, who his alibi is going to be now that Stacy is gone, whether he received any calls from his missing wife’s phone to his while he was supposed to be next to her in bed, and whether he can prove he had nothing to do with influencing the investigation into Kathleen’s death.

    Oh, and Selig can’t answer for a fact whether Drew Peterson knew or didn’t know Officer Pratl, the one that was on Kathleen’s death investigation panel. You know, the one where Drew is quoted as saying in a news video he doesn’t know him, but the officer claims to have known him at the time he sat in on the death panel.

    Selig might want to explain why Stephen Peterson’s ex-girlfriend hired a criminal defense attorney at appeared before the GJ for hours in the investigation in to the deaths of Kathleen Savio and Stacy Peterson.

    This spin he puts on interviews just don’t do it for me.

  32. What a stupid putz Peterson is. He admits he is a con and cons people, but he can’t explain why he didn’t get all the questions quite right during a polygraph exam?

    Con gone wrong?

  33. I know. I know. It’s all spin and money and white noise. The real story has nothing to do with the celebrity of Mr. Peterson or anything he might say or how his PR person might spin it…but it’s still annoying.

    Some reporters are lazy and they are going to just quote a press release verbatim. We’ve seen them do it before. It’s a pity.

    I just try to take comfort in knowing that ultimately this won’t matter. What matters is what is going on in the investigation, and what is going to happen someday in a court of law.

  34. Joel shares his final thoughts. “There is no evidence that one could present in a court of law that Drew had any involvement in Kathleen Savio’s death, or had anything to do with Stacy’s disappearance,” he replies.

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

    Maybe yes, maybe no.

    DPeterson hasn’t been charged yet, so how could Brodsky possibly know what evidence law enforcement does or doesn’t have?

    Another stupid remark that falls flat.

  35. Did anyone hear Drew say that his cell phone pings put him near the ship canal that night because “I was looking for her. I was looking for my car.”?

    According to his timeline he didn’t leave the house that night until after she called him at 9 pm. In that phone call allegedly she told him that she had left the car at Clow airport, which is right next to his house.

    So, why would he be searching for the car ner the sanitary shipping canal?

  36. “Kathy liked writing letters to people, telling on people”

    Anybody else think ‘telling on people’ is a weird thing for a policeman to say?

    ______________
    I missed parts of that interview … if anyone has a link to the recorded version, it sure would be interesting to check out exactly what he said.

  38. Noway – you need to pay for DVD or transcripts at the Dr. Phil site, but they are available.

    I have it recorded on my DVR so I can watch again and confirm but he definitely said that. I can do a transcription of that part if you guys want.

  39. I noticed Selig sitting in the audience at the end shots. Did anyone see anyone else there that we should recognize?

  40. I did notice Drew’s eyes getting squintier and wetter as the the interview progresses. You could visibly see the tension building up in his body. Especially around the time Dr. Phil said that it defied logic that Stacy would just disappear, that he felt she had to be a victim of foul play.

    I found the whole show depressing, but I do want to watch it through once more at least to pay attention to Drew’s body language, etc.

  41. Noway – I’m just thinking it could get yanked off youtube quickly once it appears since they do sell DVDs of the show. If you do see it there, I’d watch it as soon as you find it.

  42. Yes, Facs, I was very astonished at his remark about driving by the Canal, looking for his car. He knows they have him pinpointed as being near the Canal and he came up with his version of why that is.

    Did anyone get the idea that he’d look pretty bad taking the stand at a trial? He didn’t give any compelling reasons or act in a way that would give reason to think he’s being looked at as a suspect vindictively, or he’s the wrong guy.

    Oh, and seeing his teen boys having to answer questions about him while he’s standing there staring at them made me feel bad and gave me the creeps at the same time. Would anyone have expected them to say anything but that he’s a great dad? Sad.

  43. Oh, by the way, for anyone that missed it. He did confirm he’s with a new hottie, and he doesn’t want to debut her until she’s ready.

    Isn’t that special?

  44. Wonder if she was in the audience … debut her? Were those his words?

    I cannot watch any more Drew Peterson video. I roll my eyes so much, I’m afraid they’re going to get stuck in the top of my head.
    :roll:

  45. Noway – he made comments that he is with someone, but he’s not ready to divulge or debut her (my words, not his) until she’s ready to face all of the scrutiny. I don’t remember his exact words, my point to was say that he’s not shy about admitting he’s in a relationship.

  46. As to him being at or near the Canal.

    I’d like to know if law enforcement recovered anything when they were searching the Canal.

    Is there really a missing laptop and did they find it?

    Did they find her purse and belongs in the Canal?

    Did they find her passport in the Canal?

    So, once again, who cares what he said, what Dr. Phil asked, what Dr. Phil thinks, what Brodsky says and thinks, what Glenn Selig thinks, or what Derek Armstrong thinks.

    What matters is if there’s enough evidence, circumstantial or otherwise, that can lead to charges and a trial.

    Oh, and he said the ISP did a test on the water draining out of the tub, and it took 2hrs, according to him, so the idea that she drowned in a dry bath tub is ridiculous, according to him. That was the first I heard that LE did a test of the water draining. Anyone else hear that LE did that test?

  47. Thanks, Rescue.

    I would like to hear from her too … not that I think it would help me to understand how anyone could get involved with him, but I’d still like to hear from her.

    There is, of course, a high danger of eye roll syndrome hitting me. ;)

  48. Dr. Phil Show:

    Phil: Well the phone records show that you were near the Chicago sanitary and ship canal the day she went missing. Were you there?

    Drew: Yes, I was driving through that area.

    Phil: What were you doing here?

    Drew: I was looking for her her at a couple spots I thought she might be and I was looking for my car that she was driving.

    Wikipedia:

    Stacy Peterson (born January 20, 1984) went missing on October 28, 2007. She was officially reported missing in the early hours of October 29, 2007, after her sister, Cassandra Cales, failed to hear from her when expected. Drew Peterson claims that Stacy called him at 9 p.m. on Sunday to tell him that she had left him for another man and that she had left her car at Bolingbrook’s Clow International Airport.

    Polygraph Reply:

    To the question ‘Did your wife Stacy call you on Sunday, October 28th, 2007, and tell you that if you wanted the car it was parked at the Clow Airport?’ you answered Yes.

    Greta Van Susteren show:

    VAN SUSTEREN: All right. Now, what Cassandra has told us, What Stacy’s sister, had told us is that about 11:00 o’clock on the night of October 28, that she made a phone call to Drew Peterson, her brother-in- law. Is that the pinged phone call, at least as far as we can figure out from the leaks — I mean, we haven’t confirmed that ourselves yet at FOX News, but is that the pinged call that sends them to the canal?

    ELMAN: Yes. She — Cassandra is saying that she was at — she was outside of Stacy and Drew Peterson’s home when she called Drew Peterson, frantic about Stacy, and that that was when — that is the ping that they’re using from his cell phone to — because he was saying he was home, and she knows he wasn’t there because she was outside his house.

  49. I know it’s the evidence that matters to the case, but it is nice to catch Drew in a lie since he will insist on appearing publicly to tell ‘his side of the story.’

  50. Facs – Am I confused here, or did Ric Mims, I believe it was, say that he did go and get the car from a different location than at the airport.? In other words, I thought that when he retrieved the car from the airport, he didn’t bring it home – he parked it somewhere else instead, and then had Steve help him retrieve it from the other location.

  51. Well… I got this from Nancy Grace (via ACR):

    RICK MIMS: “Stacy supposedly called and told him [Drew Peterson] that she found somebody else, she`s taking a vacation, If you want the car, it`s parked over at Clow.”

    MIKE BROOKS: “And if that — what did he say what time that was?” – RICK MIMS: 9:00 o`clock, 9:00 PM”

  52. I found what I was thinking about – on acandyrose.com:

    Mims asked what he could do to help, and Drew told him to stay over, that he and Steve had to go get Stacy’s car, which Drew said he’d stashed at a neighbor’s house after first bringing it home from the airport Sunday night.” – “I wondered why he’d moved Stacy’s car somewhere else….

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

    I’m not clear on whether he brought it home from Clow and parked it in the driveway, or whether he took it straight to another location from Clow when he went to retrieve it? I do know that he did not allow LE to search the car in the early days of Stacy’s disappearance.

  53. Also from Suburban News (via ACR):

    “Bolingbrook police now say Drew Peterson told investigators Stacy called to tell Drew that her vehicle was at Bolingbrook Clow International Airport and that he should pick it up. According to Ken Teppel, spokesman for the Bolingbrook Police Department, Drew Peterson told police he went to the airport and retrieved the vehicle. “(Drew Peterson) told us Stacy called him Sunday night to tell him the vehicle had been left at the airport, and he said he went there to recover it and brought it home that night,”

  54. Again from Greta:

    CASSANDRA: “So 2:30 a.m. I drove by the house and both cars in the driveway. So then my friend Bruce calls Drew and says ‘hey she home?’ And he goes no. ‘Well, her car’s in the driveway?’ ‘Oh she called and told me she left it at the whachamacallit’ and he’s like what do you mean the whachamacallit? He’s like hang on let me get my head straight, she left it at Cushing field, er Clow or whatever the one that is back there.”

  55. Got it Rescue!

    12/17/2007 (National Enquirer) “Stacy murdered in Bed. Stacy’s final minutes of terror”

    “Mims asked what he could do to help, and Drew told him to stay over, that he and Steve had to go get Stacy’s car, which Drew said he’d stashed at a neighbor’s house after first bringing it home from the airport Sunday night.” – “I wondered why he’d moved Stacy’s car somewhere else,” Mims told the ENQUIRER.

  56. What could have been in that car that was the reason he then moved the car from their home to a different location, and why did he involve his son, Steve, in doing so?

  57. And, (all caught up now) why did he not initially allow LE to search that car although he did allow them to search the Denali? And why did he ask Sharon if she would move the car into her own driveway?

  58. I think I remember Lenny mentioning something that is on the tapes, where he said “Drew called thePolice stupid for thinking Kathleen drowned in the Tub. (He called them stupid)” I think, after bing knocked around he may have put her head in the toilet to kill her, then put her in the tub. Just a guess on my part.

    As to Steve, I remember around this time last year it was reported that he was going to take a week to go on a honeymoon. In the end, he ended up asking for more leave off right after Stacy disappeared. I have always felt Drew had some help outside of Morphey. I still have my doubts about Steve and Mike Robinson.

    As to Steve’s ex-girlfriend, (Jennifer)? She may very well have heard from Steve how his Father wanted to get rid of Kathleen. If this was the case, could she not be held accountable for not coming forth with information like that? For her to have a defense attorney, only leads me to believe she has some explosive testimony that has required her to get an Attorney. She was going with Steve, did live at the house with him for a while.

    Maybe this is wishful thinking, but I really do feel the GJ has some very incriminating info on Drew. Here again, having the ‘Hearsay Bill’ put into play, might go a long way to taking this guy down. Just a supposition on my part. I believe his day in court will come, and in the end, he will get what is coming to him. pj

  59. What if LE found something in that Canal that is a personal belonging of Stacy’s?

    What if LE has recovered the evidence that Lenny & Paula claim he disposed of on their property?

    Some people have theorized that he destroyed her remains in a quarry, or something to that effect, but that does seem to be the case after this remark in interviews with Armstrong:

    In one of the excerpts, Peterson says he worries what will happen to him if his fourth wife turns out to have died.

    “She comes up dead or something, they’re going to be looking at me,” he tells Armstrong. “That’s got me a little concerned.”

    If they can charge him with Kathleen’s murder and even try him before ever charging him with Stacy’s, why not just continue to look for Stacy’s remains, hoping to find her? There’d be no logic in charging him with both crimes at the same time, so if Kathleen’s murder is the first trial, they’d still be able to continue to gather whatever they can that’s connected to Stacy. It would seem logical that Kathleen’s murder would be the first matter, and, hopefully, if powerful and strong enough evidence is available, maybe LE would have leverage to use against him in Stacy’s.

  60. I wonder……..Is there enough evidence for the
    GJ indict on KS’s case ?

    I wonder….How long before we know something from the GJ on either SP, KS and LS case ?

    I wonder….How many Thursday will it take until
    they go through the rest of the “overhears” ?

    Kind of like…I wonder…How many licks does it take to get to the center of a toosie-pop ?

    This case makes my head hurt some days
    but it breaks my heart everyday.

  61. Might just be rumor, but all that talk about Stacy’s car and who moved it where and when they did it made me think of this:

    Did Drew not ask Sharon to move Stacy’s car into her driveway or garage?

    Or was that just rumor?

  62. For noway 406: I think you are right noway. I seem to remember that too. But why do I think I also remember her turning Drew down? I am going to have to go back and look over some old posts.
    I think Sharon may have felt there was foul play involved, and would not want to do one favor for Drew. I also think who ever mentioned it above, that it probably was Lenny and Paula’s that Drew dropped the car off .

    I guess the LE has one shot at this thing. They don’t want any missteps here. I think the one
    case that can work is Kathleen’s. I guess so much hinges on the ‘Hearsay Bill’. I also can’t help feeling, even without the ‘Hearsay Bill’ they can get him on Kathleen’s case. The sooner those kid’s are removed from him the better. It is sickening to see him use his two Teen sons as pawns in a chess game. How very sad. pj

    Might just be rumor, but all that talk about Stacy’s car and who moved it where and when they did it made me think of this:

    Did Drew not ask Sharon to move Stacy’s car into her driveway or garage?

    Or was that just rumor?

    ================

    Yes noway, Drew did ask Sharon to hide his car for him.

    Sharon did say she wasn’t going to hide it for him.

    Drew also said if she was worried about getting her fingerprints on the car she should wear gloves (!)

    It is in a very early interview.

  64. Just to elaborate,

    Drew wanted Sharon to hide his car in her garage.

    Sharon said he could leave the car in her drive way if he wanted, but she wasn’t going to hide it for him (in her garage)

  65. Yeah, you go look in and around the CS&S Canal, even though she took $25,000, her passport, and her bikini. For the Canal. Yeah, makes sense.

  66. I saw that too, HDI. There were two dogs that looked like long-haried dachshunds. I thought Drew didn’t like dogs in the house because they are messy.

    Don’t tell me they staged a play date with puppies for the cameras…

  67. Did anyone else get a creepy vibe when DP said that he was giving Stacy “her space” and that’s why he didn’t call her phone the day she went missing?

  68. Sshe “rang” and said she is leaving and the car is at “what-cha-ma-call-it, let me get my head straigth, the car is at the Airport”.

    why would she ring and tell you that ?

    “because she wanted me to have the car”

    In Drews own time line he went “looking” for Stacy for 3 HOURS after she “called” and from the next day onward he says:

    “why would I look for someone I don’t believe to be missing ?”

    Confused yet ???

    ——————–
    Cassandra Cales at findstacypeterson.com posted ISP link saying this is the boyfriend of Drew’s former wife.

  71. Must be a CO-IN-CI-DENCE.

    Like so many other co-in-ci-dences.

    Life’s just full of co-in-ci-dences in Bolingbrook.

  72. Well. So DP did drop a clanger on Dr. Phil…..funny, it’s not mentioned in Selig’s press release, because it’s a bit of a biggie, huh.

    Drew doesn’t look for things which are not missing.

    Stacy told him the car was at Clow at 9pm.

    Drew looks for non-missing car for the next few hours.

  73. Sometimes it’s so hard to be a good liar. I see his dilemma……which sounds more stupid:

    I’m looking for Stacy who must be on foot or in someone else’s car out by the canal.

    I’m looking for my car which was at Clow at 9 but maybe the handbrake wasn’t on.

  74. I haven’t bought it myself to check, but it was reported on drewpetersonkills that the part about Drew looking for the car near the canal has been excised from the Dr. Phil transcript(!!)

  75. Good morning, everyone, and good afternoon Bucket.

    LOL @ you, Bucket. I hate when the handbrake isn’t on and the car takes on a mind of its own. That must be it. Drew must have gotten vibes that the car was nearing the Canal, and he set out to rescue it.

    I think the fact that Dr. Phil’s show did some delving and was one of the first to ask an intelligent, in-depth question, rules the day. Kind of makes you wonder if they probed LE and got that pip of a question to ask Peterson on-the-spot, since it seems to have thrown the suspect off a bit!

    _____________
    Now that is interesting. But just because it’s not in the transcript doesn’t mean he didn’t say it … I’m sure Facs wasn’t the only one recording his interview … LE did too. :)

    OT … response to WonderWoman:
    According to the official Tootsie Roll website, over 50,000 children have written in since the launching of the commercial in 1970, claiming they know how many licks it takes. Their responses have ranged from 100 to 5,800.

    Three independent research studies have been carried out to determine the answer. Engineering students at Purdue University devised a “licking machine” that showed an average of 364 licks are needed to get to the center. Using 20 human volunteers, the figure was 252. A doctoral student at the University of Michigan created another licking machine and came up with an average of 411 licks.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tootsie_Pop

  77. Not surprised the machine took more licks…a machine would have to incorporate salivary enzymes. Amylase breaks down sugar to hurry it all along. O—

  78. Good morning. LMAO @ Noway.

    I wonder….Is there nothing Noway is NOT
    capable of finding information on.
    Girl you ought to get a research company going
    your amazing.

    Hmmmmm I wonder…What else can I ask that I have always wanted to know ?
    I’ll have to sit and wonder on that one a bit.

  79. rescueapet // November 10, 2008 at 3:27 pm

    What a stupid putz Peterson is. He admits he is a con and cons people, but he can’t explain why he didn’t get all the questions quite right during a polygraph exam?

    Con gone wrong?

    From the beginning of this whole thing, people just read things to their liking, no matter how far from the facts. (Not saying this in particular is far).

    But where did DP say he was doing nothing but conning people? He simply said that he FELT he could con – and it was leading back to his undercover days.

  80. Wonder, I’m a fountain of information on stuff you didn’t really want to know. ;)

    IMO it does not look good for Drew to admit he was good at conning people … whether or not it was “back in his undercover days” or not. He seemed proud of it though.

  81. bucketoftea // November 11, 2008 at 5:38 am

    I haven’t bought it myself to check, but it was reported on drewpetersonkills that the part about Drew looking for the car near the canal has been excised from the Dr. Phil transcript(!!)
    ****************************

    They were looking at that “slideshow” page at Dr. Phil’s that contains the highlights of the show in transcript form. It was up before the show even aired and that part was never in there. There is a lot of the show that is not transcribed or included there.

    If you want the complete transcript you need to pay $6 to download it.

  82. noway406 // November 11, 2008 at 10:17 am

    A licking machine? Well, imagine that. ;)

  83. whatsinthemirror:
    But where did DP say he was doing nothing but conning people? He simply said that he FELT he could con – and it was leading back to his undercover days.

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

    Um, I read that he admitted to being good at conning people. I never said he was “doing nothing but conning people.” As far as things leading back to his undercover days, I did read that he took the bold step of blowing the cover of a follow officer. What is that called?

  84. Yes supposedly he did blow the cover of an ISP officer back when he was working narc.

    And still there are people who somehow think ISP would cover for him!

    And that is how almost everyone running these internet trials chooses to spin things – however it works for them – common sense be damned.

  85. Yeah, but see, whatsinthemirror, we all here aren’t the ones that may have his future fate in our hands. We’re just bloggers here, expressing our opinions, given the enormous opportunities we’ve had thrown our way by Peterson himself, his appearances and his statements. Peterson and Brodsky have their spin, you have your spin, I have my spin.

    So, as long as we’re not the ones that are going to be sitting on his jury, I guess it’s safe to say we can judge him however we wish. No apologies or explanations are owed to anyone. Because no matter what I think or you think, or what anyone else on the blogs thinks, he’s still going to get a fair trial based on who his defense helps pick as his jury, if and when he’s charged with a crime. If that’s not the case, well, then, maybe Peterson and Brodsky should just quit going on all of their tv shows and STFU.

  86. I wonder….Could it have been said better than Rescue @11:36 am??

    I think not. Well said Rescue.
    WONDERFUL Post :)

  87. Your welcome. I really don’t think it could have been said any better. Now lets get back to work ladies. LOL

  88. facsmiley // November 11, 2008 at 11:31 am

    So waht’s your spin, whatsinthemirror ?

    Con man? Maybe so. I have a very strong suspicion that this is some sort of an in your face con. Yesterday’s Dr. Phil strengthened that believe.

    Oh and I believe Dr. Phil McGraw had his credentials (license) yanked in CA. No doctor.

    If you want to question something. Ask how come “Dr.” Phil can’t consistently look someone in the eye and bring up a question? He stares down at the floor.

  89. Wonder – I really do wonder why Peterson continues to frequent the news shows, when, IMHO, he’s only making things worse as he does. Even with all of the past appearances he’s made, if he took a hiatus for a while, maybe people would forget a lot of the stuff he says and does and would actually start with fresh minds and thoughts. He just doesn’t seem to get it, does he?

  90. Drew Peterson doesn’t look straight on at the camera either when he consistently makes the statement about Stacy:

    “show yourself.”

  91. I wonder….What will this afternoon bring ?
    Wish I could stay and wonder with my
    fellow bloggers.

    Superman has other plans for me today which include getting a new jacuzzi. Sorry OT but I am
    stoked about this. I am go giddy. BBL
    Have a WONDERFUL afternoon.

  92. Credentials: Joel Brodsky had his law license suspended for a suspicious action of signing a dead person’s name to a check.

  93. Wow, I happened upon this quote from Peterson’s ex-wife, Vicki Connelly. This was as early as two weeks after Stacy’s disappearance (11/16/2007):

    “I believe that man had a disease to his ego. He’s a legend in his own mind,” Ego drives the abuser.

    “He really led a double life. But what fed his ego was his line of work, how he could deceive people,” she said. “When he’d come home,
    he’d be the exact opposite. He could do it and he could do it with no problems.” He is doing it right now only the stage has changed and he has a worldwide audience to convince and play.

  94. “Dr.” Phil’s show is set up so as he is some sort of supreme being, able to squash down upon those he wishes.

    “Dr.” Phil is a big man, I believe well over 6 feet tall. However he has it set up where his chair is like 6 inches higher than Petersons. So essentially he dwarfs Peterson in order to give the perception of power.

    Also the little table and water is not there for both Dr. Phil (DP) and Drew Peterson (DP); it is there only for Dr. Phil. Again an edge. And the water is not even touched.

    OMG! They are both “DP”! This HAS to mean something. Quick Wonderwoman, use the golden lasso.

  95. Facs thanks for putting me right re the transcript, and LOL at UM licking machine.

    Hiya rescue! Great find. Who was it who said,”He has the knowledge, the means and the mind to do it”?

  96. Woo, boy, I think it’s time to back out of the room slowly and take a break. Going to go have a nice cold glass of water, with ice in it.

  97. whatsinthemirror

    Con man? Maybe so. I have a very strong suspicion that this is some sort of an in your face con. Yesterday’s Dr. Phil strengthened that believe.

    * * * * * * *

    What do you mean by “in your face con”?

  98. “He has the experience, the knowledge, the means, and the mind to do that,” she said, her voice trailing off. “That’s all I’ve thought about. … I’m still working through it. I’ll be honest.”

    Right, Bucket. It was Vicki Connelly!

  99. OK, here’s a funny bit from yesterday:

    PHIL: In that you did have a pattern of calling each other all the time, why did you not call her the day she disappeared?

    DREW: I did but she, there was…she wanted her space. She wanted her space so that day I gave her her space.

    PHIL: Because there are those obviously who say you called her, you didn’t call her because you knew she couldn’t answer, but you’re saying you didn’t call her because you were giving her space.

    DREW: Correct.

    So did he call her or did he not? He says both.

  100. I think Peterson said exactly what he wanted to say on that show. I absolutely believe he was very satisfied with how it all went.

  101. What do you mean by “in your face con”?

    I mean a con that has been a con from day 1 and no one has even seemed to consider it. i.e. it has been right in everyones face but they have been looking elsewhere.

  102. Nancy Grace talks over people and is abrasive. Geraldo baits and insults, Dr. Phil’s chair is taller than his guests’ and he hogs the water. Dana Pretzer fawns over and panders to his guests. So what?

    None of that changes what a guest has to say.

    Drew Peterson doesn’t have to make any appearances on any TV or radio shows. It’s completely up to him where he appears, how he acts and what he says. As long as he’s going to continue to make public appearances, he’s fair game for discussion.

  103. I’d never seen Nancy Grace or Greta vanS until all this and I was a bit shocked. I expected the likes of Greta on CNN and the likes of Nancy on Fox. Go figure. Nancy speaks in exclamation marks and Greta writes with them. I lol when Nancy Grace did her shock/horror take at the top of her voice about Casey Anthony’s outrageous purchase of “luxury beauty products” like shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush.

  104. Facs, I think Drew’s “I did” was in reference to him having the pattern of calling Stacy every day and the “she wanted her space” in reference to him not calling her that day.

    Because his cell phone records will clearly show whether or not he called her that day.

    And he’s saying he didn’t call her because he was giving her space.

    At least that is what he said on Dr. Phil on November 10, 2008.

  105. So, I’m counting two gaffs from Drew on Dr. Phil’s so far.

    1. The part about driving around the Cal Sag looking for a car that he knew was parked a couple blocks from his house.

    2. Saying that he both did and did not call Stacy on the day she went missing.

  106. Drew also said that he and Stacy called each other frequently when Dr. P made a statement to the effect that he called Stacy constantly. I don’t have it verbatim, so don’t chew me out if I’m not completely accurate here.

    I took note of that because it’s he that has been known to call her at least 8x while she was at the beauty salon with Sharon. So, I am sure the phone records will be able to show if there’s any lopsided phone calling going on, and why it’s not unreasonable to question him as to why, on the particular day she never came back, he didn’t call her at all.

    Also, he claims that he later found out that she was having affairs (is that the word he used?) with three or four other guys. I can’t wait to see him prove that one.

  107. Also, he claims that he later found out that she was having affairs (is that the word he used?) with three or four other guys. I can’t wait to see him prove that one.

    Actually the word was seeing.

  108. I think seing means different things to different people.

    Was she seeing Rosetto at Denny’s? Was she seeing that guy from school when they went out for drinks just before she disappeared?

    Who knows?

    But it could prove out she was in fact seeing people?

  109. Peterson believes his fourth wife ran off with another man, and he told Avila that he is angry with Stacy.

    “Very much so, without a doubt,” Peterson said. “She left for somebody else, and there’s been several affairs discovered. So yeah, I’m pretty mad.”

    http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/LawAndJusticeLinks/story?id=4188921&page=1

    It almost sounds like two different things to me. She left FOR somebody else. AND. There’s been several affairs discovered. So yeah, I’m pretty mad.

    JMO … but it makes me think that Stacy discovered several affairs, not the other way around.

  110. This is what he said, Noway>

    PHIL: Did you have any theory about who she would have run off with at the time?” Dr. Phil inquires. “You weren’t aware of her having an affair?

    DREW: Not when she ran off, no. Later we found out that she was seeing a few people. And to what extent she was seeing those people, I don’t know.

    So he has backed off to the point that she was ‘seeing a few people’ and even that he doesn’t know the level of intimacy. We know she met some of her fellow students for drinks and that may be all he has been able to verify as well. Interesting.

  111. When I was reading Vicki Connelly’s Chicago Tribune article today, she is quoted as saying:

    “We had bugs in our house. He put a microphone in our kitchen and taped our conversations. He was cheating so much he wanted to make sure I wasn’t,” she said. “His whole thing with us is that, ‘I need to know my family is safe at home and you’re not going to be doing anything you shouldn’t be doing’ — and that enabled him to do whatever he wanted.”

    Now, I might be reaching here, but I would not consider it far-fetched that he, in fact, did the same thing with Kathleen and Stacy, because I sure can’t imagine him quitting cold turkey if he’s a chronic stalker, especially while being married to a young, attractive woman.

    Remember how it’s been described, the night before she disappeared, while Stacy and Cassandra were at the house talking, Drew blew in while on the clock, looking mad and perturbed about something? My guess would be that he knew exactly what was going on in that kitchen at any given moment!

    What in the world did he do with those tapes, do you wonder?

  112. Facs, since you have Dr. Phil recorded and I was only going by the words posted, I’ll defer to you on there being two pointes of interest (so far) from the Dr. Phil show.

    Sadly, this thread is always too fast to correct spelling errors. It only results in an almost-double post.

  113. Well hope everyone has a nice day. I’m off to see the doc to get my wrist checked. Maybe this cast can stay off – and I can itch it.

  114. Well hope everyone has a nice day. I’m off to see the doc to get my wrist checked. Maybe this cast can stay off – and I can itch it.

  115. So it’s gone from affairs to seeing someone>/i> and the extent to which she was seeing them is unknown.

    Maybe a cup of coffee was just that: A cup of coffee.

    Maybe it means more in Drew’s world, so it was an honest mistake.

    *insert barf smiley of your choice*

  116. There’s also the discrepancy between Drew saying that they are currently using PIs to search for Stacy and the recent quote (I think from Armstrong) saying that they had stopped.

    That’s not such a biggie though since 1.) I cannot find the Armstrong quote and 2.) it would only be a discrepancy between what Drew claims and what Armstrong claims. Armstrong could easily be mistaken.

  117. Facs, didn’t Armstrong say he was still investigating this case? If you have time, watch when he says that and tell me if you see Drew raise his eyebrows slightly or if it was all my imagination. Thank you.

    About the PIs … how much online searching can they do? I mean if any credit or debit cards that she had access to have not been used … what other online stuff would they look for?

    Maybe cell phone … her cell phone has not been used (assume they were watching her account online). But what else?

    My brain has frozen. I’ll be back later this afternoon when it’s thawed.

  118. Dr. Phil inquires. “You weren’t aware of her having an affair?

    DREW: Not when she ran off, no. Later we found out that she was seeing a few people. And to what extent she was seeing those people, I don’t know.

    ********

    Funny thing, though, he was aware that she was “seeing” Scott Rosetto enough to confront him while he was sitting with Stacy in a Denny’s, heh?

    Funny thing that the cell phone call from Stacy’s phone to her husband’s phone was made from the area of Shorewood, where, coincidently, Scott Rosetto happens to live.

    That Later we found out that she was seeing a few people remark shows me that Peterson needs to take his big foot out of his mouth!

    Stacy Peterson had told her husband she planned to meet [Scott] Rossetto [35-year-old registered nurse from Shorewood] at the Denny’s, Rossetto said. Drew Peterson told her not to go, and when she defied him, Drew Peterson showed up at the restaurant in his Bolingbrook police sergeant’s uniform and sat down at their table. He didn’t rant or rave. He was “quiet mostly,” Rossetto said.” – “he [Scott] said they met at Denny’s at about 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 19. That’s when Drew Peterson arrived, staying for about 15 minutes. It was the first time Rossetto had met him, he said.” – “He asked me how I’d react if my wife was with another man,” Scott Rossetto said.” (courtesy of acandyrose.com)

  119. One other funky thing is that Drew again dismissed the idea that Stacy and he had marital problems by saying that Stacy asked for a divorce on a monthly basis coinciding with her menstrual cycle.

    But then on Dr. Phil, this:

    PHIL: It’s also been alleged that Stacy told her sister that she feared for her life. Do you believe she said that to her sister?

    DREW: Again I don’t know, and if she was trying to set me up for some sort of divorce or anthing that might have been a way to do it.

    It’s like he’s lied so often and is working so hard to stick to the script that he has no idea what it sounds like anymore. He started out saying a year ago that the marriage was hunky dory and that Stacy was never serious in her threats to divorce him, but now he offers that Stacy might have been ‘setting him up’ for a divorce (whatever that means).

    A year has passed and the public has a lot more information than we did before; including statements from family, friends, and a lawyer about her intentions to divorce him as well as the ultimatum she gave him to get out of the house by the end of the month.

    Yet, he still sticks to the story of ‘troubled’ Stacy and her ‘goofy’ menstrual cycle making her do ‘silly’ things. He’s so screwed here because any deviance from that script just makes him sound like an outright liar…and a pathetic one.

    Facs, didn’t Armstrong say he was still investigating this case? If you have time, watch when he says that and tell me if you see Drew raise his eyebrows slightly or if it was all my imagination. Thank you.
    ******************

    I’ll rewatch and try to get a screenshot if he does. :)

  121. Facs, it almost appears that, in a sick sort of way, he’s giving out the best that he and his lawyers have to offer by way of a defense.

    I don’t remember the verbatim language, once again, and I am merely paraphrasing, but didn’t Dr. Phil find it odd and strange that if he is alluding to the idea that they were still “romantic” and a loving couple, how is it that he didn’t see it coming that she was taking off with a man for the high seas?

    Also, I absolutely recall that he made the disgusting remark, without any regard for Pastor Schori’s wife and children, that Stacy had a crush on him, but not offering any facts or basis for making that remark. Other than past remarks by him that she dressed inappropriately when seeing him, according to him, and craved male attention.

    Here, again, is a point. Shortly after Stacy had met with Pastor Schori, he received a phone call from Drew Peterson. How is it that, on Dr. Phil, he professes not to know anything about Stacy’s “seeing” men, but at least two of them had contact with Peterson during or shortly after being with Stacy? Now, that defies logic.

  122. State Police also have sought video surveillance tape from businesses on Illinois Route 59 just north of Plainfield and south to Shorewood, one source said.

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

    Wonder if the Judge has any of this surveillance tape in the extensive recordings given to him by law enforcement, heh?

  123. LOL, I guess I should elaborate on the video surveillance tape from business on Rt 59. That involves the area through which Peterson may have passed through when using Stacy’s cell phone to call his, the Shorewood area.

  124. Nice example of Joel’s tendency to speak too quickly is when he refers to Drew telling stories and then quickly changes it to “gives his version of what occurred”.

  125. Oh, Drew, Drew.

    “Stacy’s family and friends have said it is not the first time Peterson accused his missing wife of infidelity. They said that at her sister Tina’s funeral in 2006, as Stacy walked with her late sister’s husband, Drew asked her if she was sleeping with him.”

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

    There was a strange moment when Dr. Phil mentioned that it seemed strange that if the relationship was still ‘romantic’ why he didn’t search heaven and earth for her when he found out she was missing.

    It’s as if Drew doesn’t even hear the question, like he thought Phil was asking something else because he immediately answers, “I don’t know. I don’t know.” and then suddenly it seems to register and he replies that he believes he has done all he can to look for her.

    It really wasn’t an “I don’t know.” kind of question. I got the impression that his brain was on auto-pilot, stick-to-the-script mode and that he and Joel had rehearsed questions and answers and that he came up with an automatic response to what he thought Phil was about to ask him rather than what was actually asked.

    Like I say, after a year of reports, leaks and research, a lot of what Drew says just seems bizarre. But that’s what happens when you start out with lies. You’ve got to stick with them to the bitter end.

  127. Drew Peterson – Vicky Connolly – Jeffrey Archer – Cal Sag

    Drew Peterson – Stacy Peterson – Cal Sag

    Co-in-ci-dence or MO ??

  128. Drew deserves a Pullitzer prize for getting his time line published in a book and then go on t.v. to completely and utterly contradict everything.

    That sure is a sign of the greatest master of fiction if ever there was one !!

  129. What a weird incestuous world:
