Authorities are moving forward with their investigation into the disappearance of a missing Bolingbrook woman and could exhume the body of her husband's previous wife on Monday to take another look at her mysterious death.

Volunteers continued their search efforts at 10 a.m. Monday, hoping to find a clue to the disappearance of 23-year-old Stacy Peterson, who has been missing for more than two weeks.

Meantime, authorities have been planning to exhume the body of Kathleen Savio, the third wife of Stacy's husband, Drew Peterson, who has officially been named a suspect in Stacy's case.

Body Of Drew Peterson's Third Wife To Be Exhumed

Investigators are reviewing the death of Sgt. Drew Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in her bathtub in 2004. NBC5's Kim Vatis reported Monday that investigators will exhume Savio's body to further the investigation.

A spokesman for the Will County State's Attorney's Office isn't saying when the exhumation will occur.

State's Attorney James Glasgow said evidence strongly suggests that someone killed Savio and tried to make it look like an accident in 2004. At the time, her drowning was called accidental.

Glasgow moved to exhume the body in the hopes of gathering more information in the case and on Friday a judge signed his petition to exhume the body.

Tent placed over Savio grave

As the search for a missing Bolingbrook woman enters its third week, officials plan to exhume the body of her husband's third wife.

Kathleen Savio's grave is covered by a tent as officials prepare to exhume her body on Tuesday. Savio, who drowned in 2004, is the third wife of Bolingbrook Police Sergeant Drew Peterson.

Preparations Made For Kathleen Savio's Exhumation

Authorities are moving forward with their investigation into the disappearance of a missing Bolingbrook woman and could exhume the body of her husband's previous wife on Monday to take another look at her mysterious death.

Investigators are preparing to exhume Kathleen Savio's body. With her ex-husband, Drew Peterson, a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, close friends are struggling to believe his story.

As CBS 2's Katie McCall reports, the people who searched for Stacy Peterson Monday are certainly focused on finding her, but they are also interested in finding out what happened to Savio, Drew Peterson's third wife.

Reporters stationed outside the Peterson home Monday were greeted by a man who appeared to be Drew Peterson's brother. He brought out a video camera, took a few shots, then went back inside.

3rd wife's family feels torn

As authorities erected a maroon tent near Kathleen Savio's grave in Hillside Monday to exhume her body, family members found themselves grappling with mixed emotions: relief that authorities were reinvestigating but also a fresh onslaught of grief.

For one thing, said Melissa Doman, Savio's niece, how do they rebury her?

"When we have a good idea, we'll call together family members and go from there," she said.

A strongly worded commentary on the death of Kathleen Savio, the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, and the suspect Drew Peterson. And a call for a review of other cases!

Crews Exhume Kathleen Savio's Body

~snip~

The body was exhumed in the 7 a.m. hour Tuesday. After a back hoe and two men with shovels opened the grave, a crane was used to hoist Kathleen Savio's casket from a plot at the Queen of Heaven Catholic Cemetery in west suburban Hillside. A little more than an hour later, the casket was placed in a van that took the body for a new autopsy at the Will County coroner's office.

The Will county coroner and state's attorney were present for the disinterment, along with Illinois State police investigators. Also present was the Rev. Chris Groh, who is chaplain of the Joliet Police Department. He came because Savio's family had requested a Roman Catholic priest, and led officials in a brief service.

Will County law enforcement did not want anyone in attendance other than investigation officials. That included Savio's family members, who expressed disappointment that they could not attend.

Autopsy underway on Savio's exhumed body

An autopsy is being performed on Kathleen Savio, the third-wife of Bolingbrook Sergeant Drew Peterson. Peterson's current wife, Stacy, has been missing for two weeks.

After a Catholic priest offered a prayer at the site, Savio's body was exhumed from her grave early Tuesday morning.
"We were all raised Catholic. And it's something very sacred, which is why we wanted complete privacy when this was done," said Melissa Doman, Kathleen Savio's niece.

News helicopters hovered overhead as Savio's casket was lifted out of the ground and placed in a vehicle headed to a morgue. An autopsy will be performed by an independent medical examiner.

Expert Performs 2nd Autopsy On Kathleen Savio

Crews Tuesday morning exhumed the body of suspended Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson's third wife. The coroner said the autopsy was completed Tuesday night and the cause of death was still ruled as drowning.

The expert pathologist brought in to do the autopsy has completed 9,000 in his career. No ruling has been made yet about the manner of death, but authorities expect a ruling will be made within a couple of weeks at which point it should be known whether Savio died by accident, homicide or an unknown reason.

Stacy's Uncle: 'Today' Interview Was To Get Lawyer

Continued dissection of an interview that a Bolingbrook police sergeant gave to the "Today Show's" Matt Lauer on Wednesday has included comments from friends and neighbors of Stacy Peterson, the officer's wife.

Drew Peterson flew to New York to appear on the morning news show and share his side of the stories of his missing fourth wife and the death of his third wife, whose body was exhumed Wednesday morning as part of an ongoing investigation.

Peterson has been named as a suspect in the 2004 death of Kathleen Savio, and a second autopsy is to be performed on her body.

On Thursday, Stacy Peterson's uncle, Kyle Toutges, spoke with NBC5's Dick Johnson and Zoraida Sambolin about his impressions of the Today Show interview.

Court Filings for Estate of Savio

JOLIET -- Although we don't know much about Stacy Peterson's disappearance, we know other things.
They are found in files at the Will County Courthouse.

A will emerges

A year after Savio's death and the beginning of the legal proceedings to settle her affairs, a will emerged. It was submitted in court on March 23, 2005. Hand-written in capital letters, it was scrawled across two pieces of lined notebook paper and witnessed by Alex J. Morelli and Gary L. Marcolina.

Division of property issues

The will names James B. Carroll, Drew Peterson's uncle, executor of the estate, according to a document filed in court by Kavanagh, who apparently had some concerns.

Both of Peterson's wives feared 'accidents'

With the search for missing Illinois mother Stacy Peterson wearing on and another woman's exhumed body under examination, friends and family members of both women grow increasingly suspicious of her husband, Drew, despite his insistence Wednesday that he had nothing to do with either case.

"He's not asked anybody if we know where she is. Maybe because he already knows where she is?" said Sharon Bychowski, a friend of Stacy's.

Peterson's second wife tells her story
She recalls he threatened to kill her, make it look like an accident

By Erika Slife |Tribune staff reporter
11:16 PM CST, November 15, 2007


"For the last two weeks, Vicki Connolly has watched in disbelief and with conflicting emotions as controversy swirls around her ex-husband, Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson.

She doesn't know whether he had anything to do with the disappearance of his current wife, Stacy Peterson, who has been missing since Oct. 28, or the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, who died mysteriously in 2004.

But in the first interview granted by one of his ex-wives since Stacy's disappearance, Connolly, 48, said Thursday that during their marriage an increasingly controlling Peterson told her he could kill her and make it look like an accident. While she couldn't believe he would ever do it, something prompted her to confide in Bolingbrook police officers who she considered friends. "So they would know he said these things to me," she said.

She said Peterson would hit her but not hard enough to go to the hospital, and not often enough for her to expect it. It made it worse, she said, that she never knew it was coming. "It was mind games; it was head games," she said."

A long article with lots of information on their relationship.

Another autopsy planned for Peterson's 3rd wife

A noted forensic pathologist is expected to conduct a private autopsy of a Bolingbrook police sergeant's third wife, who drowned mysteriously in 2004.

Michael Baden, the former New York City chief medical examiner, was brought in at the request of Kathleen Savio's family.

"It's not for law enforcement purposes; it's for the benefit of the family," said Charles Pelkie, spokesman for Will County State's Atty. James Glasgow.

Man who found body of former officer's third wife defends officer

A man who found the body of former police officer Drew Peterson's third wife in a bathtub three years ago says when Peterson saw the woman for the first time he was obviously surprised and distraught.

"He checked her pulse right away to see if she was dead or alive. Then he was, 'Oh my god, what am I gonna tell my kids? What am I gonna tell my kids?'" Steve Carcerano said today.

Expert: Peterson's 3rd wife was slain

The ex-wife of a Bolingbrook police sergeant found drowned in her bathtub three years ago was murdered, according to a noted forensic pathologist who autopsied her remains Friday at the request of her family.

Former New York City chief medical examiner Michael Baden said in an interview with Fox News personality Greta Van Susteren that the remains of Kathleen Savio showed bruises that indicated a struggle, leading him to conclude her death was a homicide, not an accident as a coroner's jury previously ruled.

"I don't think there's any possibility this was an accident, and I don't think there's any indication this was suicide," Baden said.

Drew's history of cheating

Dave Brown has Drew Peterson, in part, to thank for a fantastic 26-year marriage.

"I'm so glad Drew let her go," Brown said of his wife Carol, who was married to Peterson from 1974 to 1980. "She's the most leveled-headed and good-looking person on the planet."

Carol Brown, now 50, was the first wife of Peterson, the former Bolingbrook police sergeant named a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife.

Attorney: Don't Make Savio's Death 'Entertainment'

In response to a conclusion by an independent pathologist that Drew Peterson's third wife died in a homicide, Peterson's attorneys said her death "should not be a source of entertainment."

As CBS 2's Rafael Romo reports, nationally renowned pathologist and former New York City chief medical examiner Dr. Michael Baden concluded that Kathleen Savio died in a homicide. He said it was evident that she had been the victim of foul play after just taking a first look at Savio's body, which was exhumed earlier this week.

"My experience has been normal, healthy adults don't die accidentally in bathtubs, period," Baden said.

Peterson's 1st wife describes doting husband

Carol Brown was five months pregnant with Drew Peterson's first child when she had a miscarriage. She had been bed-ridden in the weeks before, and Peterson was by her side, bringing her food and "always being very supportive of me," she said.

It would have been the couple's first child, and Peterson was devastated, she said. Speaking publicly for the first time since the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, Peterson's fourth wife, Brown, 50, described her ex-husband's support during the traumatic pregnancy and painted a more nuanced portrait than the increasingly controlling and suspicious husband described by his second wife and relatives of other wives.

Drew Peterson Says He's Coping During Ordeal

There are new comments from Drew Peterson Sunday morning. They come after a third autopsy was performed on his third wife, casting more doubt on the circumstances surrounding her death. CBS 2's Rafael Romo reports on what Peterson had to say.

Speaking to reporters outside his Bolingbrook home Saturday night, Drew Peterson said he's coping with his situation.

"I'm just ready for anything that may come," he said. "So I'm just working through the days. I'm doing fine. I'm just, uh, I lost 30 pounds. Jenny Craig has got nothing on me 'cause I lost 30 pounds through this ordeal, you know, it's very nerve-wracking."

Missing Mom's Early Romance Hid Dark Future Ahead
Toward the End, Stacy Peterson Wanted a Divorce, Friends Say
By CHRISTINE BROUWER

Nov. 18, 2007

"By all accounts, Stacy Peterson once loved her husband, 53-year-old police sergeant Drew Peterson.

But by the time she vanished from her home in Bolingbrook, Ill., three weeks ago, friends say she had grown fearful of the man they say mentally abused her, and had decided to end the marriage.

"She would always look over her shoulder," said family friend Bruce Zidarich of meeting Stacy in the weeks before she went missing. "She said, 'I'm gonna tell him that I want a divorce.' ... It came up more and more often."

It wasn't always that way. Stacy Peterson's disappearance, say her relatives and friends, capped an explosive seven-year relationship that started with a teenage girl swept off her feet with attention and gifts from a man 30 years her senior, then turned progressively sinister as her once-loving husband grew increasingly controlling and suspicious, forbidding her to see family and friends, and accusing her of infidelity."

and

""Stacy Cales was just 16 years old when she met Drew Peterson, according to her sister, Cassandra Cales. She had recently graduated high school a year early and was working the night shift as a receptionist at a local hotel.

"He was a night commander," Cales said of Drew Peterson, who was in his late 40s at the time and a two-decade veteran of the Bolingbrook Police Department. "He used to go in there and check on her -- you know, sweep the hotel and make sure that everything was okay."

The pair started dating. But Stacy, still underage, didn't immediately tell her family about the new man in her life. Drew Peterson was married at the time to Kathleen Savio, his third wife."

Drew Peterson disputes autopsy results

Former Bolingbrook police officer Drew Peterson, named as a suspect in his fourth wife's disappearance, this morning disputed the findings of an independent pathologist that his third wife was murdered.

Or rather, his lawyer did.

In his second interview within five days on NBC's "Today" show, Peterson's attorney, Joel Brodsky, did most of the talking, clearly frustrating interviewer Matt Lauer.
