Drew Peterson Grilled by Amy Jacobson, Geoff Pinkus and The Public
Chicago, IL—Amy Jacobson once again proved her mettle as an investigative reporter when she went face to face with Drew Peterson last night. It was on Geoff Pinkus’ Livin’ Large Radio Show that Derw Peterson and his lawyer, Joel Brodsky answered those biting questions so many inquiring minds wanted answered.
Jacobson never missed a chance to hit Peterson with a skillfully crafted questions and great follow-ups. On the other side was an experienced professional cop/witness/suspect with 30 years of police work on his resume. I don’t know if Jacobson exposed any information that would solve the mystery but she followed the first rule of every investigator, she kept the suspect talking.
As for the interview in general it was timely, interesting and informative. It was great radio that showcased an obvious resurrection of news reporter, Amy Jacobson.
It was the strikingly similar case of Lisa Stebic, the wife of a private investigator, Craig Stebic in another Chicago area probe by Jacobson that sidelined her career. Jacobson caught some unjustified flack for her courageous effort to solve that case.
…And as for the, Will County State's Attorney… When Drew Peterson is answering questions, their investigators are always listening. A few wrong words and a criminal court jury may hear a recording of this and other interviews. Peterson is either very crazy or very innocent.
WIND Radio and Geoff Pinkus deserve a salute for giving their listeners a great show.
