Lifetime releases trailer for “Drew Peterson: Untouchable”

No doubt you’ve already seen this preview of the Lifetime movie, Drew Peterson: Untouchable, which is based on Joe Hosey’s book, Fatal Vows.

Intercut between scenes of a violent domestic struggle, Rob Lowe as Drew Peterson would appear to be re-enacting the episode in which Sharon Bychowski was terrorized by her next-door neighbor using a remote garage door opener. According to Bychowski, she had lent the opener to Stacy Peterson who left it in the family’s Denali. After her disappearance the SUV was impounded by the state police and then returned to Sgt. Peterson who discovered the opener while going through the car’s contents. He then used the opener to open and close Bychowski’s garage door in an attempt to intimidate and frighten her. According to Drew’s lawyer, Drew found a number of garage door openers and was simply testing them all to see what they would do.

As for the catch phrase “I’m untouchable, Bitch”, it’s a nice cheesy touch but probably didn’t happen. This is how Bychowski related the story to Nancy Grace back in March 2008. “He walked on the sidewalk, looked at my house, smiled, and then he hit the garage door. Then he hit it a second time, as if to say, I’ve got your garage door opener. Ha, ha, ha.” The incident caused Bychowski to call police and seek a restraining order.

If you’ve been following the case, you’ll recall that this wasn’t the first incident with Drew Peterson and a garage door opener not his own. Prior to Kathleen Savio being found dead in her bathtub, Peterson used a pilfered garage door opener to gain access to the house he had once shared with her. According to letters and a police report, Peterson cornered Savio inside her house where he threatened and berated her for an extended period of time. This is the incident that prompted Savio to write, “He knows how to manipulate the system and his next step is to take my children away from me or kill me instead.”

Yesterday, Joel Brodsky told the press that he had played the trailer for Peterson over the phone and that Drew found it to be “hilarious”.

It would seem that Peterson’s lawsuit to block production of the movie was completely unsuccessful, and he will not be seeing a dime of the proceeds.

Drew Peterson: “Society, you can kiss my butt!”

I spent some time transcribing the CBS 2 interview with Drew Peterson, and while doing so I noticed that for the most part Drew remains very composed and reticent. The few times that he does gesture or react I found noteworthy, especially if you are a follower of the Lie to Me or Eyes for Lies style of analysis.

I made some screen captures of those moments.  What do you think? When Drew reacts, are his reactions telling us something about what he is hearing and saying, or is he just a guy with a couple of itches and a sense of humor?


TIME: 01'18"

PUCINELLI: Do you love her?
PETERSON: Like she says, “I thought I did.”

At this point Drew was just asked if he loves Christina Raines. He uses the very words that Chrissy used in an interview when she was asked if she loved him. Then he laughs at his joke. Contrast his emotional state to hers when she spoke those words.

Stacy Peterson’s family fires back after Drew’s ‘Larry King Live’ appearance

Stacy Peterson’s friends and family were back on the offensive Saturday morning as they met to denounce claims her husband made on CNN’s ‘Larry King Live’ show Friday night.

Less than 12 hours after Drew Peterson told King that his wife Stacy had left him for another man and that his neighbor “has been acting emotionally disturbed,” those close to the missing Bolingbrook mother shot back.

“It’s all the same lies,” Stacy Peterson’s sister Cassandra Cales said. “Drew’s out there trying to make everyone believe that my sister was medicated and [blaming] her menstrual cycle, and that she just up and left her two kids. That’s just not true.”
