PEORIA (LALATE) – PHOTOS. The body of Stacy Peterson, Drew Peterson’s fourth wife, might be found Saturday. Reports of Stacy Peterson’s body found first surfaced on May 21 2009; at the time, local news claims the remains discovered could be missing Lisa Stebic or Stacy Peterson.
Stebic’s cousin Melanie Greenburg told ABC at the time in 2009 the following: “My honest feeling is hope the body is ID’d if it was Lisa or Stacy. I hope one of our families gets closure from this.” Yet today new reports that Stacey’s body might have been found.
There are indications today that Drew Peterson may have given an alleged jailhouse confession to an inmate that Stacy’s body was buried are outside Peoria, Illinois.
Stacy Peterson’s remains have been missing since October 2007. Peterson was 24 at the time. Her mother Christie Cales is also missing. Stacy married Drew in 2003 in Bolingbrook, Ill.
Peterson is currently in jail awaiting trial on the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, found dead March 1 2004, just weeks after the couple’s divorce. Her death was ruled an accidental drowning until the body, exhumed four months later, proved her death a homicide. Drew Peterson has remained in jail since May of last year on $20 million bond.
Peterson was engaged to Christina Raines, but that wedding (that would have been Peterson’s fifth), was stopped in 2009.
