Drew Peterson has allegedly confessed to a fellow inmate that he killed his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson. Stacy has been missing since January 2007. Peterson is currently being charged with the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio.
TMZ got a story about how Peterson told an inmate about how he killed Stacy Peterson and where he disposed of her body. As soon as the inmate got the information from Peterson, he went to the authorities.
Authorities have gone to the location Drew Peterson named and located a digging spot. They are currently digging there today. Authorities reported that they indeed hit a solid substance while digging. No further information is ready yet. Police do believe the body could be buried there.
Why do all the maps show W. Grange Hall Road as being WEST of Peoria, and all the recent articles say the search is going on EAST of Peoria?
I started a new thread titled [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=106117"]Theories Based on LE Search in Peoria Area - June 5, 2010[/ame]
I thought we could use that thread to discuss theories based solely on this latest breaking news of the LE search northeast of Peoria, Illinois.
Let's leave this thread strictly for updates on the LE search, and post theories and speculation about how Stacy may have ended up buried in the Peoria area, if indeed, it turns out her remains are found there.
I've posted my theory and hope others will post their theory and we can discuss possibilities.
Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Tom Burek speaks with occupants of an official vehicle leaving the Big Hollow Sportsman's Club in rural Peoria County, Ill. Saturday, June 5, 2010. Investigators picked their way across a muddy stretch of remote central Illinois Saturday as they followed a lead into the disappearance and possible homicide of the fourth wife of former suburban Chicago police officer Drew Peterson. Peterson already faces a murder charge in the 2004 killing of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. No one has been charged in the 2007 disappearance of his subsequent spouse, Stacy Peterson, and her body has not been found.

I hope this comes back to bite him in the butt! (JB)
In reference to Saturday's developments, Brodsky said that "the current report about Stacy Peterson is just another in a long line of baseless allegations against Drew Peterson. Ever since Stacy disappeared there have been numerous rumors, gossip and reports about Drew. The one thing these reports have in common is that they always prove to be false, and there are never any facts or evidence to back them up.
"There has never been one single factual piece of evidence regarding either Stacy's disappearance or death of Kathleen Savio that shows Drew is guilty of any wrongdoing," Brodsky said.

Police Dig For Stacy Peterson's Body Near Peoria
CHICAGO (CBS) ― In a muddy, remote wooded area east of Peoria, authorities are digging on yet another potential site for the remains of Stacy Peterson, fourth wife of ex-Bolingbrook cop Drew Peterson. ...
local 5pm news getting ready to start here in Chicagoland
some other info posted
according to the 5pm news the news conference is scheduled for 5:30 so they are only reporting the same stuff we already know at this point.
If this wait is unbearable for me...imagine what it is like for her family
Sitting. on. hands.
"...Investigators contacted Alwan Friday and asked to search his land northwest of Peoria. After receiving his consent, police brought in equipment and got to work. Authorities do not believe Alwan had any involvement in Stacy's disappearance, sources said."
So, Hosey says that the State Police and the owner of the property that they searched are going to hold a joint press conference in the property owner's new restaurant, called the 309.
Maybe it was publicity for a new restaurant?
Just drove by.... not a ton of traffic down that road. Helicopters flying overhead. Entrance to the specific property is blocked off (as seen in the photos above).
Waiting on pins and needles!
The TMZ pics show a tent/canopy in the background. IMO that's pretty promising that something's been found....
Thanks It's Not the Nanny. Local info is always the best....
Bolingbrook home to the search area. Please note Peoria is coming up as Dunlap for the search location.
Yep - it is Dunlap!
I think the tent might only be indication that they COULD find something. IMO, it's a smart thing to do, because what if a helicopter flies over the second they dig up something important? Unfortunately, those photos might end up in the media and that could be hurtful for a lot of people. Or, if it's a barrel they find, it could be info they don't want to release just yet.
i want this site to contain Stacy, but I seriously doubt this site will provide any evidence. With DP having knowledge of decomposition, I can’t imaging him leaving Stacey’s body in a blue barrel. Unless it the barrel contained dozens gallons of HCl, HNO3, or H2SO4 her DNA would remain available for testing upon discovery. If serial killer DP is as clever as he “wants to be”, he would have made her body non-recoverable like the Stew-Maker in Mexico.
The PC should be starting about now...Anyone have a live link? TIA
