I’m seeing some Tweets about a search for Stacy Peterson being conducted today in the same area where a search was conducted in November.
Search dogs and police units are reported to be out on Black Road in Shorewood. This is the Hammel Woods area so it’s likely that investigators are continuing with the search efforts that occurred there a month ago.
At the time of Stacy Peterson’s disappearance, her friend Scott Rossetto was residing in Shorewood. Drew Peterson’s step-brother, Thomas Morphey, has testified that the day before Stacy was last heard from, Peterson indicated that he wanted to take care of the Stacy “problem” and intended to direct suspicions to Rossetto.
Rossetto was set to testify at Peterson’s murder trial that Stacy had told him that Drew had killed Kathleen Savio, but his testimony was ultimately barred. He now resides in Germany where he is an army nurse.
Calls from Stacy Peterson’s cell phone to Drew Peterson’s phone were placed from the Shorewood area on the night of Stacy’s disappearance. According to Morphey, he was standing in a park in Bolingbrook, holding a cell phone that had been given to him by Peterson, when several calls were received showing “Stacy” as the caller. One could theorize that Peterson placed the calls himself from Stacy’s phone in order to draw attention to Rossetto.
I’ll update if and when I learn more.
Best of luck to the searchers!
