I am not sure how many of you have been following this case, but I fear the outcome is not going to be good. This man has had four wives, and one of them died under suspicious circumstances and now this one is missing. http://www.nbc5.com/family/14455029/detail.html?dl=mainclick NBC5.com Missing Woman's Officer Husband Has Troubled Past Sergeant's Third Wife Died From Drowning POSTED: 6:02 am CDT October 30, 2007 UPDATED: 8:17 pm CDT October 30, 2007 BOLINGBROOK, Ill. -- State police are searching for the wife of a southwest suburban Bolingbrook police sergeant. "Because he's one of our officers, we thought it would be better to have an independent agency investigating," Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar said of the state's involvement in the disappearance of Stacey Peterson. NBC5's Phil Rogers reported Tuesday that Will County authorities were looking into the one of the officer's previous marriages for clues into the disappearance of his current wife. It was not clear how long Peterson, the 23-year-old wife of Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, has been missing. Illinois State Police Trooper Mark Dorencz at first declined to comment on the matter, but later said the state is handling the case as a missing persons investigation. Drew Peterson said he heard from his wife Sunday evening, when she called from her cell phone and told him where he could come and retrieve the family car. Drew Peterson's previous wife, 40-year-old Kathleen Savio, was found dead in the dry bathtub of her Pheasant Chase home in March 2004. Drew Peterson and Savio were divorced and he was returning their two sons to their home after a weekend visit, but no one answered the locked door. Peterson went to a neighbor's to call a locksmith. Once entry was gained, the neighbor went inside and found Savio's body in a waterless bathtub. The investigation revealed Savio drowned. Her fingertips showed pruning from being submerged in water and her hair was wet when she was found. While there was no water in the bathtub, it may have drained out over time, as the plug was down, investigators speculated. A coroner's jury ruled the death accidental. State police investigated that case as well. No charges were filed. Rogers reported that Peterson's third wife had been granted an order of protection against Drew Peterson, saying, "He wants me dead." The order of protection was dismissed 10 days later. The Will County State's Attorney's Office said they were reviewing the circumstances of Peterson's former wife's death three years ago. The disappearance of Stacey Peterson was being investigated by the Illinois State Police, Rogers reported. The Bolingbrook Police Department said Drew Peterson was not scheduled to work Monday. A message left for him at the department went unreturned. Rogers reported According to one official, Savio was Drew Peterson's third wife, and Stacey Peterson is his fourth. More than 20 years ago, Drew Peterson was fired from the Bolingbrook Police Department after the village board of police and fire commissioners found him guilty of disobedience, conducting a self-assigned investigation, failure to report a bribe immediately and official misconduct. He had been indicted two months earlier on charges of official misconduct and failure to report a bribe. Peterson was working under the auspices of the Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad at the time. Indictments alleged he solicited drugs in exchange for information about his agency. The charges later were dropped. Special Prosecutor Raymond Bolden said at the time that the charges were not provable. Drew Peterson won reinstatement with the department in March 1986. Judge Edwin Grabiec ruled police and fire commissioners lacked sufficient evidence to find Peterson guilty of the charges. According to an Illinois State Police news release -- which spelled her name Stacy Ann Peterson -- she was last heard from at 10 a.m. Sunday. She was supposed to help a friend do some painting, but never showed up. Stacy Peterson is described as a white female, 5 feet 2 inches tall, about 100 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. She was last seen wearing a red jogging suit. She has a tattoo of a blue and yellow carnation on the small of her back and a scar across her stomach, the release said. According to the release, Stacy Peterson frequents Joliet Junior College and her family reported her missing at 4 a.m. Monday.
