Another Sign That The Drew Peterson Case is Self-Destructing
Joliet, IL—Retired Bolingbrook police sergeant Drew Peterson was arrested after Illinois law was changed to admit hearsay evidence normally barred from American courtrooms. He’s been locked up since June of 2009 in the Will County Jail here in lieu of $20 million bail.
The case against Peterson is based upon hate, gossip and the greed of relatives seeking a windfall through their civil action against Peterson. Any evidence that supports murder is as thin as it could possibly be.
The Sun Times, Joseph Hosey crusade against Peterson has ended with the sticky departure of the reporter who made the story personal long ago so many half-truths he published. Hosey had his own profit making plan for the Drew Peterson Story.
Now comes Tommy Peterson, the son of Drew Peterson and the late Kathleen Savio who has just turned 18 years old. The younger Peterson's maternal grandfather brought suit against the elder Peterson on behalf of Tommy who was a minor at the time. The lawsuit was about taking control of Drew Peterson’s estate with an anticipated judgment. That case has taken a giant step backward as Tommy Peterson now has the authority to withdraw from that case.
Thomas "Tommy" Peterson
Attached is a letter from the younger Peterson. I know this lad misses his mother and would not support his father if he thought for a moment that his dad killed her. It’s now obvious that the case against Peterson is going to make its sunset unless or until some real evidence surfaces to the contrary. If Peterson is tried and acquitted, that case can never be brought against him again.
Here is the letter:
