Drew Peterson: Dietition, Handy Man, Co-dependent…

"Chrissy's diet consisted of cigarettes, chocolate, diet pop and beer."

The complete 24-minute interview with CBS’ Mike Puccinelli is up at the CBS website now.  I found it much more interesting than the three-part “package” they put together for the news.  Drew was asked many more questions than they included in the news segments or in the latest story on their web site.

  1. Drew is very composed for the whole interview, but at 4’27”, when he’s asked how long he’s known Ernie and Chrissy, notice how he touches his face.

    Often, when people touch their faces under questioning, it betrays some tension or apprehension. Some people say that it marks a lie.

  2. Also, someone asked whether or not Drew had ever arrested Chrissy? We get a little closer to an answer here:

    PUCINELLI: What about Ernie? How long have you known him and the family and Chrissy?

    PETERSON: Chrissy’s twenty-four now and I knew her since she’s been fifteen, so I’d say about nine years old—or nine years. At fifteen she was basically a little hellion. She was getting into fights, she was getting into trouble all the time and as a policeman I was there dealing with her issues, with her dad—for her dad.

  3. Drew Peterson: ‘Innocent People Go To Jail’ Reporting
    Mike Puccinelli CHICAGO (CBS) ―

    Drew Peterson in his Bolingbrook home opened up to CBS 2’s Mike Puccinelli about Peterson’s recent breakup with Christina Raines. (Feb. 6, 2009)
    CBS

    “A good father, a good man.”

    That’s how Drew Peterson describes himself. Prosecutors call him a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.

    He’s also being investigated in connection with the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in a bathtub.

    Peterson, who maintains his innocence, said he doesn’t know if he’ll ever do time in connection with those events.

    “Innocent people go to jail all the time,” he told CBS 2’s Mike Puccinelli. “And guilty people get set free, so I don’t know.”

    Peterson said he’s been railroaded by the media.

    “In the court of public opinion, I believe everybody has me guilty,” he said.

    Some members of that court care enough to write. And it’s not all hate-mail.
    Peterson says he gets several letters a week. One is from a man in Maple Park who tells him to keep fighting and that he’s getting a raw deal.

    But right now Peterson has to deal with evidence stacked up against him that could be provided by two men –- Neil Schori and Thomas Morphey. Sources believe Morphey helped Peterson dispose of Stacy Peterson’s body on the day she disappeared.

    “I think (Morphey has) attempted to take his own life a few times, and now all of a sudden he’s become a hero to his family when before he was nothing but a loser to his family,” Peterson.

    Neil Schori is Stacy’s pastor. He’s gone on the record to say Stacy Peterson told him that Drew Peterson killed Kathleen Savio.

    “If that was actually said to him, why didn’t he come forth and say something back then?” Peterson said. “Instead of saying, ‘Go home and make it work with your husband. If I was any type of minister or law enforcement official and someone told that to me, I would get that woman out of the house and to a safe place.”

    Stacy Peterson didn’t get out of the house until she disappeared without a trace some 15 months ago.

    Neither Pastor Schori or Morphey is talking to the media.

    But sources say Morphey never attempted to take his life until that day out of fear of what he might have helped Peterson do.

    Drew is once again on a slanderfest of everyone that could be a potential witness against him.

    Drew seems to be the one that has “hero syndrome” where he has to be the one who swoops in and saves all these little girls and younger troublemakering guys in the neighborhood. Makes one wonder if the guys he buys things for have to pay the same price the little girls do…

    I mean the guy is saving Chrissy’s life by giving her vitamins and everything!!

    It is interesting that he leaves out “good husband” when describing himself.

  5. Facs – How do you get things to be in quotes in this forum? I know how to do it for other sites but it doesn’t work the same way here.

  6. TAI, and everyone else. This blog doesn’t recognize the code used by proboards and other forums. If you want to customize your comments, you’ll need to use good old HTML (and only some tags are accepted).

    To blockquote a section of your comment you would enclose that section between an opening and closing blockquote tag, like this:

    <blockquote>your content here</blockquote>

    Which will end up looking like this:

    your content here

    Maybe I can make a page with a little menu of allowed HTML tags…

  7. Thanks facs. I know some good old html code so I’m OK. But a little cheat sheet for cutting and pasting would probably be helpful and make it faster. 🙂

  8. M. Robinson had another 9:30 am court appearance this morning. Anyone know what a settings motion means? When will this guy ever go to trial?

  9. Thanks Noway.

    Bear in mind that a ‘comment’ is not the same thing as a ‘post’, so the first link wouldn’t actually apply to your comments.

    I always lose that smiley URL!

  10. Facs, maybe you could set up a section of links that apply to this site.

    I thought the Visual Versus HTML Editor section might apply to comments too? But no?

    ***

    Grandam – This is what is the basic definition I have found in a few places (none for Illinois) that explain what “Setting for Trial” may mean:

    If the court finds the action ready to be set for trial, it shall enter an order setting the action for trial, fixing a date for trial, and setting a pretrial conference, if necessary.

    Source: http://www.flsdivorce.com/Q&A/how_is_a_family_law_matter_sched.htm

    So it looks like it is just a court appearance where they may determine if they are ready to have another court appearance to set the date for the actual trial.

    It takes a long, long time for most cases to go to trial – especially if they have a lawyer.

  12. From the video (http://cbs2chicago.com/video/?cid=48) regarding Kathleen’s death (around 6:55/23:56) … Drew clears it up for us (how someone drowns in a dry bathtub).

    He says that the State Police did a drain test when they did their initial investigation. They filled the tub with water and the tub drained in 2 hours.

    He then goes on to say that his boys complained about the tub saying they could not take a bath for long because the plug was broken.

    I have a 9-year old, and while he prefers showers anyway, one hour would be long enough for a bath.

    I see Drew has now put a dollar figure on Chrissy’s kids moving in ($2,000 for beds and bedding).

    ***

    He actually said something about that in one of his first comments about her leaving. He said something like he had just spent thousands of dollars on furniture.

  14. Drew always appears a chatty, amicable guy full of stories about his benevolence and generosity towards others, yet in amongst it is a pile of criticism and humiliation of the same recipients of his so called “kindness”.

    Only Drew can say “if people would leave him and Chrissie alone it would work out for them” and in virtually the same breath brutally critisizes her personality,lifestyle and background (!!)

    He just doesn’t get it he is only demonstrating what a terrible judge of character he is if after more than 30 years in the Police force, he still doesn’t know a loser if he sees one !

  15. PUCINELLI: She has two kids and they both moved in with you?

    PETERSON: Two little kids. A little girl, four, and a little boy, five.

    PUCINELLI: And you invested in those kids.

    PETERSON: Oh yeah, I spent about $2000 accommodating them moving into the house. I bought bunk beds for them and bedding. I wanted the kids to have their own place to sleep –have their own bed—have a feeling of belonging . So, yeah I invested in them quite extensively.

    Doesn’t it seem as if the interviewer meant ’emotionally invested? Sad that Drew took the question to be about money.

  16. I still can’t get over how utterly demeaning to Chrissie (or women in general) his account is re the engagement and especially the ring.

    According to him Chrissie asked him about five or six times for an engagement (!!)

    That sounds like a big put down straight away or he would have heard her the first time (!)

    Also if his feelings for her were so “overpowering” as he claims, why would he let HER ask him five or six times in the first place (!)

    Next he really puts the boot in big time by saying he just went to a drawer with costume jewellery and rummaged around for a ring.

    To make matters worse, he even goes as far as saying “it wasn’t a very good ring”

    He is putting himself on such a pedestal that he is looking down on Chrissie from a great height !

    I can’t believe he actually thinks this story makes him look good or makes him look like the “good guy” he so desperately wants to portray.

  17. Facs in #18 said: Doesn’t it seem as if the interviewer meant ‘emotionally invested? Sad that Drew took the question to be about money.

    Yep. Seems he does that a lot. The loved ones in his life have a dollar figure attached to them.

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

    Yeah another of his acts of utter “generosity” that he supplied beds and bedding for Christinas children.

    How else were they supposed to sleep at his house ?

    Drew makes it look like Christinas children were street urchins that never slept in a bed before (!)
