If you've never heard of Drew Peterson, let me give you a quick thumbnail.
Peterson is a former Bolingbrook, Il cop who has had a peculiar run of extremely bad luck. Actually, it's not so much Drew that has had to suffer the misfortune, as the women he so dearly loved. Simply put, Drew Peterson is a douchebag who beats up women. Human scum. The kind of guy I wouldn't mind scraping up my knuckles on. Drew Peterson is a piece of shit. (that's just my opinion of course)
Peterson's second wife, Vicki Connolly, has alleged that she was beaten by Officer Peterson for the entire duration of their marriage (her second as well), and her daughter has said that her step-father, our beloved Drew, beat the shit out of her too.
Peterson denies both of those allegations vehemently.
His 3rd wife, Kathleen Savio, drowned in the bathtub. Kinda. Her body was recently exhumed, and forensic types are now saying that she drowned after being placed in the bathtub following a struggle.
Drew denies any involvement in Kathleen's death, ...vehemently.
Our man Drew's somehwat single at the moment.
He's a kind of a widower.
His 4th wife Stacy went missing in October of 2007, and while Drew claims Stacy ran off with another man, many believe that she was murdered. Include me in that group, and I'm not just basing that on a hunch. I've heard things from people I trust, and the shit is going to come out very soon on this guy.
Now, Peterson is engaged to be married a 5th time. Christina Raines, a 23 year old mother of two has ackowledged that she's engaged to the 59 year old former police sergeant. Raines' family is extremely angry about this development, and have expressed their anger in our local media.
Hey, speaking of our local media.....some time ago, Peterson began phoning in to the radio show of one Steve Dahl. You may recognize Steve's name from his infamous "Disco Demolition" held back in '79 at old Comiskey Park. On Steve's show, Drew Peterson would take calls, answer questions, joke around with Steve a little, and basically had himself a grand old time. He once was the star of a "Dating Game" bit where 3 women called in and tried to win a date with Drew.
He was feeling a bit like a local celebrity.
He was something akin to Blago in the criminal-turned-celebrity department, only Drew didn't extort money from people (like Blago, allegedly) ....no, Drew murdered people, allegedly.
Anyway, after a short stint, Steve Dahl decided he'd had enough, feeling a bit creeped out by the whole thing (my words) Dahl ix-nayed Officer Peterson from his radio show,
And so, Peterson began calling Mancow Muller's show. What a great time Drew has been having! Right up until yesterday, when Stacy Peterson's sister, Cassandra Cales, called in to Mancow, and ON THE AIR directly accused her former brother-in-law of murder.
I'm smelling a reality TV show.
