It just SEEMS evil, didn't BS meter go off and tell him this was wrong and he shouldn't help? I realize it was before Stacy was officially missing, but still. Call me crazy and midwestern, but we don't keep blue barrels in our bedrooms here in Ohio.
    Tom Morphy is Drew's step or half brother (can't remember which offhand). He was afraid of Drew, IIRC. Drew chose him to help because he had a history of drinking and mental issues from ten years prior and Drew played on his weaknesses, imo. Drew is a very cunning individual.

    We should have a thread on Tom M. here if you want to read up on him.

    I found a few Tom M. threads, but here is one that discusses his initial response ending him up in the hospital.:

    That thought crossed my mind as well. Cassandra did say that Stacy never had any cash.

    Of course, they both talk inappropriately anyway so how Brodsky thinks telling everyone his client is "unconcerned" is beyond me.
    What do we expect him to say? He can't say, "My client is very upset at the possibility it is Stacy because he last saw her in the river in a blue barrel where he placed her." LOL

    Kelly Hollis said she and her husband, Steve, were hiking near Moose Island, a little further down the river, when they saw a blue barrel.

    "It was either late fall (2007) or early spring (2008) and at the turnoff, we looked across the river and saw a plastic blue barrel all by itself," she said.

    The Hollises immediately thought of Stacy Peterson but thought the barrel at the shore was "too obvious" to indicate anything sinister.

    "But it stayed in my head and a few days later I called the sheriff's police who put me in touch with the state police hotline," Hollis said. "I left a message with the story and the police said wait a few days and call back if I didn't hear from them, so I did."

    Hollis said she was never contacted by state police, but she found it "a little freaky" when she saw a news report saying a blue barrel had been found Wednesday.

    "We saw that quite a while ago. Could it have been there all along," she wondered.

    Coroner Patrick O'Neil said in a news release Thursday that his office is unable to discern the identity, race or sex of the skeletal remains. O'Neil says an expedited DNA analysis will likely take about two weeks.

    It is going to be a very long two weeks for those families. I feel so sorry for them.
    Merci beaucoup SS, I think this is a stock answer for a high profile case where everything has to be done exactly by ze book. The reason I think that is we read the pelvic bones were there and that alone to almost anyone with medical training would be able to tell the sex right away by their shape.

    I've watched Dr G allot and do think since nothing specific was found on the body that is related to a certain person, it would be inconclusive at that point anyway. That's what she'd say too. I mean this coroner didn't go into any detail at all, markings on bones, condition of bones, etc. I think it was planned to be inconclusive for now. I might be but it's IMO LOL

    Tom is DP's step brother............no blood relationship. Tom's father married DP's mother, and both brought children into the marriage.

    Tom was afraid of DP and helped DP move the blue container from the master bedroom to the Denali, not wanting to refuse his step-brother. But in a recent interview, TM stated that DP originally approached him a day or two prior to Stacy's disappearance, asking him to rent a storage unit in his name for DP to use. TM had the impression that DP was up to no good and refused to rent the storage unit.
    My posts are my opinion..........

    Stacy was ready to leave DP and perhaps she was rebelling against his control by carrying cash and hiding activities from him. He did not like it.

    Brodsky's Plan To Discredit Tom Morphy

    KING: Just this, if you would, Joe, it's been reported that when Drew took his stepbrother Tom home, Tom went and talked to his neighbor about what happened. Here's what the neighbor had to say on the "Today" show.

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    WALTER MARTINECK JR., DREW PETERSON'S NEIGHBOR: His eyes were sunken in the back of his head. He took me by my shoulders and told my I can't say anything, and he just told me that he thinks he helped dispose of Stacy's body.

    UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Why did he think that he had done that?

    MARTINECK: Because when he helped Drew, that's what he told me, when he had helped Drew take something out of the house, it was warm to the touch.

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    KING: All right, Joe, I would imagine as a good lawyer, you would have asked Drew about that?

    BRODSKY: Well, absolutely. And it did not occur. Tomas Morphy (ph) is a very troubled individual. In looking at his past, he has multiple psychiatric admissions, he has multiple DUI convictions. His wife, by the way, Tom Morphy's wife vanished 10, 12 years ago without a trace.

    So when you look at this individual, you really have to wonder how credible of a witness he is. And the fact that he may are repeated something to a neighbor doesn't make him any more credible. He's just a troubled individual. And his story doesn't seem to make sense because we're talking -- people talk about moving a barrel, and then the barrel becomes a tub and then the tub becomes a tote bag. In fact, the state's attorney in Will County has so much trouble in his testimony that they haven't taken him before the grand jury because of what has been reported about his memory lapses that have occurred.

    I haven't followed this case as closely as all of you have, but it doesn't keep me from forming an opinion about this. Maybe you all who know all the details about this can explain why I am crazy. Here's my theory: If this does turn out to be Stacy, what are the chances that someone involved arranged to have the body turn up now? Like someone that helped Drew dispose of the body, knew where it was, but was very very afraid of Drew to ever say a word. Now finally, Drew is behind bars and this person doesn't have anything to be afraid of anymore and the body magically shows up. Maybe that is all too "conspiracy theory", but I just don't believe in coincidences. I'm very very skeptical of the timing.

    I can't imagine what the families must be going through, because I am on pins and needles and am not connected to this in any way. I am very hopeful that at a minimum they will be able to identify this body so that this could be a resolution for someone's family.

    A lot of people put cash in their jean pockets. If I run into a 7-11 real quickly I may stuff my change in my jeans. I have even put jeans in the washer and washed money.

    I know nothing about forensics. Does anyone know if there would be enough DNA left on the clothing to do any good in identifying the person? It doesn't seem logical to me that there would be...but I really have little knowledge in forensics.

    I think it is a real shame that the woman who saw the blue barrel in the fall was blown off!!!

    You do make a good point. She did get a new cell phone and had been changing things.

    Wouldn't it just tick him off to know she was carrying cash and he didn't go through her pockets to rip her off? Sounds like Drew anyway.

    I don't think that this is a crazy thought at all! The same thing raised my hinky meter. Maybe someone was no longer afraid of DP..now that he's in jail.

    So see, you aren't the only skeptical one

    If she had been buried, I could see it being possible. Under the circumstances, if this is Stacy...it would be impossible for someone to arrange such a find if she was dumped into the river.

    LOL. I know SS. Wouldn't it be nice if he would man up and tell everyone where he put Stacy?

    I just thought unconcerned was a weird thing to say. Or at least not very well thought out Because Drew should be concerned that this could be his children's mommy and harm came her way by someone else, KWIM?

    On the other hand, Drew will stop at nothing in his story that she ran off with another man so I guess that's why he is unconcerned.

    I'm confusing myself
