Sergeant's Previous Wife Died In '04, Case Ruled Accidental
Oct 30, 2007
[Excerpts] State Police are searching for the wife of a southwest suburban Bolingbrook police sergeant... It was not clear how long Peterson, the wife of Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, has been missing... According to an Illinois State Police 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 5-foot-2-inches, 100 pound, white female 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... 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... Once entry was gained, the neighbor went inside and found Savio's body in a waterless bathtub... 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. 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... 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...

At 4 a.m. Monday, her family went to the Illinois State Police to report that she was missing... Contacted at his home this afternoon, Peterson declined to comment. "I'm waiting for my attorney to advise me," Peterson said. "If he feels I should make a statement then I will. If he advises against it, then I won't."
