Randy, Uh oh, what's going on?

The I-Team has also been told by investigators that state police seized the Oakbrook department personnel files of two of Peterson's closest friends on the force. One recently resigned while under investigation for professional misconduct. The other was recently terminated for lying and unauthorized access of criminal files

Attention Mods! You can probably merge this with the police misconduct thread. The allegations are regarding Steve, Drew, and others.

Hi all. It is old news that was just reported by Chuck Goudi last night for no real reason. The ISP got the records before Thanksgiving. They talked to a few of Steve's coworkers but not to me. They told one of them that they see no need to talk to me. Steve has been before the GJ twice and is cooperating fully.

I think it was a rather slow news day on this case, since they didn't really find anything to report about the search, they wanted something to grab ratings.

Glad you're here Randy. I have a question. This was in the above ABC article


When Steve Peterson's current stepmother, Stacy, 23, vanished almost six weeks ago, he was on vacation, according to police sources - a vacation that he extended several times in November.

I know it has been said that Steve was recently married, and I figure he took time off for a honeymoon. And I am sure that since the disappearance of his stepmother, that he has felt under scrutiny and pressure. But has there been any other reasons for his "extending his vacation several times?"

If anyone watched Greta tonight (12/14/07), Sharon B was on talking about the Savio case and right at the very end she mentioned something about Steve cheating on someone named Jennifer. Sounded like his girlfriend.

So if I heard everything right, sounds like cheating runs in the family...

I would like to think he has nothing to do with anything illegal in this horrific saga, but I think if you cheat on your girlfriend then you are probably capable of cheating elsewhere in life.

RandyMucha
12-15-2007, 12:02 PM
I am going to chime in here with my opinion based on what I know of Steve today. I didn't know Steve when he dated "Jennifer" or if there even was a Jennifer. If he cheated as a young man in a dating relationship I don't think it is fair to make the leap that he would cheat on his wife today. He is very happily married to a great lady who wouldn't stand for any type of cheating, abuse, etc. In fact, I think she would kick his butt in a second if he stepped out of line. My dad cheated on my mom which lead to a divorce when I was a teen. I have never cheated on my wife. Please don't rush to judgement of Steve just because of who is father is.
My two cents, which adjusted for inflation is just about worthless. Thanks for reading.

My thought was this..if Steve and the girl he cheated on were living with Stacy and Drew at the time of KS's death, someone needs to find that girl.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. She might have some useful info.

With all due respect Randy, I am going to disagree. Working with and being an ex abuse victim, I can tell you that with boys who are raised in a home of a guy like Drew one of two things occur. They either turn out to abuse women in the same way their father did(does) or they grow up to be victims of abuse.

When you work at something long enough you begin to see patterns repeating themselves.

Without a true "conversion" of their hearts they are doomed to fail. It has nothing to do with how much they love their wives, it has to do with living what feels familiar.:twocents:

Bank Records: Drew Peterson Funneled $250G to Son After Wife's Disappearance



BOLINGBROOK, Ill. — Ex-police sergeant Drew Peterson transferred nearly a quarter of a million dollars to his son in the weeks after the disappearance of his wife, Stacy Peterson, in November, MyFoxChicago.com reports.
Prosecutors subpoenaed bank records that show Drew Peterson funneled the money to his son, Steve Peterson, an Oak Brook, Ill., police officer, after Stacy Peterson was reported missing on Oct. 28.

So can Steve Peterson be honest in his testimony to the GJ? He would have a lot to lose if he were involved, or knew something. He's in a tough spot, I think it would be hard to go against your father. Could the reason for DP transferring the $ is to "buy" his testimony? I hope he does the right thing- if he knows anything.

Well if Steve did live with Stacy and Drew at the time of Kathleen's murder then LE should speak with his girlfriend to see if she also noticed or heard anything around the time of Kathleen's death.

As far as the money Drew gave Steve we have known through Ric Mims about that transaction early in the case. I think that was money Drew gave Steve to either bail him out and hire an attorney if he was arrested.
Which makes sense combined with his comments that the children will be taken care of, etc at that time.

I wonder if Drew also thought of the possibility that his bank accounts could be temporarily frozen , considering that his wife was gone and the accounts could be joint.

If he had been arrested early on or if Stacy's body had been found, would Stacy's estate be able to keep him from accessing the money for his personal use?

susanWhile I am not sure about this case, in another case where the man killed his wife in front of witnesses...he was able to use "her" inheritance for his defense as they didn't freeze his accounts. He used every dime of it and had to be declared a "pauper" for his appeals.

I agree with Randy about government employees wanting every hour of work. They could have required him to work before and after the GJ hearing, and had him take personal time for the hour or two that he would have been in the Grand Jury. Remember, Steve had been on an extended leave and had just returned to work. Now that he is back on their schedules, the department won't be happy about him taking more time for anything.

You are correct and I agree, but that is how screwed up the Oak Brook PD is. This was brought up on another thread. All I can say is call the Chief, Tom Sheahan, 630 990 3000 and complain about the waste of tapayer dollars. Steve did NOT enjoy the spotlight that the uniform and squad car brought upon him.

That was a statement made by Sharon the neighbor on Greta last night. I didn't know Steve back then and can't say whether or not there even was a Jennifer, much less if she lived in the house.

Randy, I hope you are right about Steve. But I'm concerned for him because he accepted a quarter million dollars from his dad. This act alone, makes him suspicious. Everyone says how manipulative D.P. is, but Steve strikes me as a man that is smart enough to stay away from suspicious behavior if he isn't involved.

Perhaps it's just protecting his inheritence, but I say the money is not worth it. JMO

I agree with your thoughts on the fact that his own son who is a Police Officer was wired with over $500,000. The one word you said was "accepted", if DP wired the money into Steve's account(s), doesn't necessarily mean that Steve "accepted" the money. Just that money went into his account(s) from DP. (his Dad).

IMO, Steve is old enough and has just recently left to go on a honeymoon. Also, it has been said loves his nephews and niece and has even babysat them many times during this ordeal.

Actually, I feel sorry for him having to walk this tight rope, son of a police officer that is not only suspicious of one killing, but two! Also, money being shown going into his accounts by his father (who is the one under suspicion of murder), and still having to worry about the welfare of his nephews and niece, and still maitain a newly wedded marriage.

Wow, I am just overwhelmed by just typing all that, let alone actually living it!!

Don't know where to post this. Help me if you can. I've been hearing about Kathleen's will being found a year after her death and vaguely heard, or thought I heard, that Drew's older son was a benificiary. The BarnGod interrupted me and I didn't catch it all. It was about the same time as the Fox reporter was talking about a total of $250,000 transferred to Steve. Something also about a couple of BB cops witnessing the will also. A search on this forum turned up nothing.

BarnGoddess:

I can say the $250,000 transferred to Steve is correct, actually, the quote now is a "$500,000 transferred to Steve". In how many accounts or even if it was one account has not been establshed yet.

A will being found after a YEAR of Kathy's death was discussed somewhere and yet, it was also mentioned that "witnesses" to that will did consist of police officers.

Frustrating when you can't hear everything!! LOL

It might be in one of the Kathleen Savio's threads. I'll go check, but maybe chico or someone else can provide the posts.

Thanks Littledear, I did hear that of the total of $250,000 that $150,000 was done in one big transaction. From that I would take it that the rest was trickeled into his account.

You're right and according to DP's version of the story this would be perfectly innocent since (according to him) Stacy already took $25,000, and left to be with one of her six (?) boyfriends. So he trusts his son and doesn't want her to have access to any more of the money. ;)

He knows that he has NO REMORSE for his killings, but just maybe, being the egotistical person he is, he thinks (I created) the children, so he, in his mind transferring the money to his son's account(s) (Steve) makes him feel in his mind he is a "good" guy.

He actually could care about the children since they have not been removed from his care yet!!! (Which, there has to be 100 WS'S and 100 find.stacy. posters have been wondering............why???????

I don't know what's in his mind (and don't really want to :D) but I do think the kids are safe since he still can control them. Maybe Steve was raised in the same controlling manner and even though he's grown now still knows what dad is capable of? Stacy became a threat to him when she said she wanted to leave and especially if she knew about Kathleen's death.

reading what you said, in a psycological theory, DP and Steve can connect as "males, but in DP'S mind any female that doesn't meet/obey/etc. him is not good enough and has to be eliminated.

But Steve, does not believe in that, he believes in the honor of the "blue" code (police) which both him and his father have in common.

No one has seen DP for a few days now and all the media have left, so we can only assume that DP is hat home with all the children. Yet, even here and on the findstacy.com site, no one has come forward and said they feel the children are in danger.

I don't think the children are in danger of DP physically hurting or killing them, but I do worry about them and feel there's a lot of emotional abuse in that house if he's as controlling as has been reported. The children are also without their mothers, and this is probably especially hard for Kathleen's kids who have now lost twice. :(

Randy, I hope you are right about Steve. But I'm concerned for him because he accepted a quarter million dollars from his dad. This act alone, makes him suspicious. Everyone says how manipulative D.P. is, but Steve strikes me as a man that is smart enough to stay away from suspicious behavior if he isn't involved.

Perhaps it's just protecting his inheritence, but I say the money is not worth it. JMO

While I think Drew is a slimy creep, I'm going to hold judgment on this money thing until we know more. Drew's a lying maniplulative user and abuser, but if he's thinking that he'll have to go to jail, might lose his retirement from the BPD, and someone will have to raise his four children, this might be money for that purpose. It would be a huge burden for a newly married 28-year old to suddenly inherit four children. The financial burden would be enough to perhaps end his marriage. So, I realize that in the light of DefendDrew.com, this looks very suspicious, but we really do have to keep in mind that these four children still have to have a place to live and will have to have all the things that it takes for them to grow up. Yes, the older two have trust funds from their mother and Stacy's life insurance policy has yet to turn up (yes, I'm certain there is one), but that money would go a long way to easing the transition to Steve and his wife. So, thus far it looks like this is Drew's money and he really does have the right to do with it as he pleases. Yes, if some of it came from joint accounts, it may look worse, but we all know Stacy won't be coming back to raise her children. If Steve and his wife can provide the children with a loving stable home and they are willing to do it, then I think that is great. I know some have thought that Cassandra would want the kids, but at her age, that would be a huge responsibility. Hopefully, she can be in the children's lives in a major way, but they still need two parents. The money thing seems to be the least of worries right now. Steve cheating on a girlfriend? This seems like gossip to me that is totally unimportant and irrelevant at this juncture. JMO

What's so interesting about the will is the time it emerges and the fact it is hand written in all capitol letters. Seems to me that with the money they had tied up in businesses and other assets they would have had a will drawn up by an attorney and sealed with the state when they executed it. Most people with those kinds of assets do not leave a handwritten will..in all capitol letters, witnessed by only friends of their husband vs their own firends and family. Most married couples execute a will together. That alone should have sent up a red flag.

That's exactly what I was thinking that in addition to him being a cop (and in danger of being killed in the line of duty) they had businesses and children together and a person in that position would normally have a Will drawn up by a lawyer just to make sure everything is "legal" and can go to the beneficiaries without any questions.

You're right in that would have been the mature thing to do, but a handwritten will would be awfully difficult to forge. Many people their age with minor children don't have wills at all because most people their age (at that time), just don't think they are going to die soon. It's strange but I don't recall anyone ever thinking it wasn't legitimate. Even if they weren't getting along (and we know many of their problems now), when there are children involved, in the event of the death of one parent, the children would be raised by the surviving parent and the decedent would most likely want their assets to benefit their children. Maybe I'm missing something, but even though it's not very professional it was a will that apparently was valid in the state of Illinois.

I find it unlikely that in the future, any woman will make a will with Drew Peterson (tongue in cheek).

Not doubting you, but where and how much is the trust fund for Kathleen's children. Would this be from her life insurance? I haven't seen one. I have heard DP say something about her life insurance being in trust for her kids, but I really am not conviced of that. If he took out the policy and paid the premiums, I would believe he's the primary beneficiary.

Actually, I've expressed fear. I'm especially worried about the welfare of the little daughter. DP has already shown a willingness to cross the legal boundaries of age by dating a 16 year old (that's how old Stacy was when he first started going after her). He's constantly bringing up sex, sexual prowess, sexual situations, etc. And he's admitted he's not going to get a date any time soon.

It's a terrifying thought.

BarnGoddess, I saw Drew interviewed early on (I think Matt Lauer) and he was asked about the million dollar life insurance policy that Kathleen had and he did confirm it, but said that it was left in a trust for her two children.

Now, later on, I heard (can't remember where) that Drew hadn't been aware until AFTER her death that Kathleen had changed the beneficiary from Drew to the two sons.

Thanks thesleuther. Interesting that she could change the beneficiary. The BarnGod has to keep up a life insurance policy on his wife per his divorce agreement. We sat down with our agent about all our policies both on him and the one on her. The ones on his two children were turned over to them to continue the premiums on their own. The one on his wife cannot be cancelled voluntarily per his divorce decree. Funny thing is the BarnGod is the beneficiary, LOL. We tried to get her to agree to cancelling this policy, but she's too bull headed and stupid to understand that the only one is benefitting is her ex. She's tried to get their son made sole beneficiary, and excluding bypassing their daughter, but she can't. She's called me every name in the book, trying to get the beneficiary changed. Unfortunately for her, the BarnGod is the beneficiary and will stay that way unless he changes it himself as HE owns the policy. To really p**s her off, I'm secondary beneficiary before their daughter and son.

So, who owned the policy on Kathleen that she could change the beneficiary? If it was hers, then did she pay the premiums?

My stepdaughter (her daughter) is getting married this coming Spring and the ex wants me to pay for it along with the BarnGod, but then she's demanding I stay home and not attend. Not going to happen. My darling stepdaughter says she feels I am more of a mother to her than her own mother, and if anyone stays away, it's her. She probably will as she hates her fiance.

I would say, based on our own experience, that Kathleen probably did own the policy. Maybe I'll have to e-mail Greta the question.

I've tried to pinpoint when DP changed, and I think it was about the time that the information about Tom Morphey helping him move a blue container from the bedroom to his Denali the night of October 28th. Just a day or two before DP was smug and horsing around with the media, and then he changed and wanted the media to stop hounding him.

Police Chief: Peterson's Actions Obstructed Official Investigation
Hinsdale-Clarendon Hills, IL Patch

Peterson's son did not disclose he was in possession of his father's weapons while State Police executed a search warrant on Drew Peterson's home following the disappearance of Stacy Peterson.

(snipped)

"Oak Brook Police Chief Thomas Sheahan testified Thursday night that he believed Officer Stephen Peterson held back crucial evidence while the Illinois State Police were trying to find his missing stepmother, Stacy Peterson. Stephen Peterson is the son of Drew Peterson, currently in prison on charges that he murdered his wife Kathleen Savio in 2004.

The hearing was held to determine whether Stephen Peterson, 31, should be dismissed from the department. Prosecutors are accusing Stephen Peterson of deliberately hiding three of his father's firearms while state police searched Drew Peterson's home in October of 2007.

"[Stephen Peterson] understands that a weapon could have been used in a crime against his young mother. He also understands that within the three weapons there could be fingerprints, DNA, fiber," said Sheahan."

I read an article after the big snowstorm recently, in the midwest, that stated that they cancelled the meeting because of the large amount of snow, but have never heard anything about it being rescheduled.

ETA: Here is the article

Oak Brook dismisses Steve Peterson from police force
Officer Stephen Peterson's claim about hiding weapons was 'self-serving'

--snipped--

"Drew Peterson's oldest son just lost his job at the Oak Brook Police Department.

The Oak Brook Board of Fire & Commissioners on Saturday found Officer Stephen Peterson guilty of obstructing the police investigation of his father's missing wife, Stacy Peterson, by allegedly hiding his father's guns after she vanished."

Ole Drews laugh probably has a lunatic sound to it by now. IMO, he should just give it up and say where Stacy is. It's not like he's gonna be allowed out anyhow. The Will Co. AG is really keeping up on him and Steve.

I think they will probably end up filing charges on one or two more in this case after the trial, if it ever goes to trial.

I'm sorry to have to ask this, but maybe someone could fill me in. I have not followed his cases lately because he (DP) is such a scumbag that it absolutely makes my skin crawl to even think about that man, much less his crimes and disgustingly evil personality.

What role has SP played in the deaths? I totally missed any news on him. Thanks so much!

There has been conjecture for a good while that SP and one or two others might have helped to dispose of Stacey's body. But what is known for sure is that when DrewP expected to have his weapons taken from him, he gave one to SP to keep for him. (That weapon happens to be the one that the DA has tried to get DrewP on illegal weapons charges on, but hasn't been able to get a conviction.) SP didn't turn the gun over and didn't report to anyone that he had the weapon. So I guess it was for hiding a weapon for a known suspect of a crime.

This is an article that explains the circumstances surrounding SP's firing really well. It was the guns, but it was also because he failed to disclose that he received a quarter of a million dollars from DrewP before his arrest.
http://plainfield.patch.com/articles/oak-brook-sacks-petersons-cop-kid

The article also gives more detail about why and how DrewP was fired years ago, before he won his appeal and was rehired. I knew he was allegedly running an unsanctioned investigation, and possibly endangered another LE. But this article alleges that he was also extorting an alleged crime boss.

OT has anyone else noticed that Hosey has changed papers he is reporting for? Now with the Plainfield Patch.

IMO they should be with their respective MATERNAL families. No doubt about it.

My heart aches for DP's older son's though.. and who they COULD have been. Especially his 18 year old. With him as a "father", they never had a chance. Kids just don't grow up evil. These poor young men were brainwashed and coached and live in fear of their father's anger. And like most young boys, long for their father's approval. DP uses that.

DP uses his children as pawns in his chess game of life, and eliminates anyone in his path that may irritate him, interfere with his agendas, or cost him money.

all just moo

JUSTICE FOR KATHLEEN & STACY.

DrewP's words



"When I gave Steve my guns there was no investigation to impede," Peterson said. "They were my favorite guns, and I was going to give them to Steve when I retired anyway. I only gave him three of the dozen or so guns I owned, and I kept most of my guns in my house and the police confiscated them all, so how could giving him those three guns impede anything?"

Drew Peterson's Cop Kid Bids to Win Back Badge

"The lawyer for Drew Peterson's Oak Brook cop son has filed papers in DuPage County Circuit Court in a bid to get his badge back.

The attorney, Tamara Cummings, put the blame for the firing of Peterson's son Stephen Peterson on Oak Brook Police Chief Thomas Sheahan.

Cummings, the general counsel for the Fraternal Order of Police, called Sheahan's actions "vindictive, retaliatory, unfounded, excessive and part of a pattern of harassment" in the complaint for administrative review she filed Friday."
