I think the dismemberment is due to natural causes, such as being in the river. As much as I dislike DP, I can't see him cutting up her body. On the other hand, if he had someone else dispose of her body, that's another story. MOO

Something happened that day and Drew killed Stacy. He couldn't handle the body removal himself. He had no choice but to get help. HE HAD TO GET HER OUT OF THERE. He knew that since Stacy was scheduled to be with her family, that if she didn't show up they would be calling. And when they couldn't reach her by phone, they would be looking for her. He's a policeman. He knows the drill. A search warrant could be executed quickly and he NEEDED TO REMOVE HER.

Yes, Tom seems to have had problems in the past and Drew tells anyone who will listen that Tom is unstable. But, ask yourself this question....If you desperately need help for a chore that might later turn out to be the surreptitious removal of your dead wife's body, who do you ask: the most decent honorable person you've ever known, or one whose past is a little shaky and might be easy to discredit?

I think the answer is clear.
I wish I felt as confident as you do but for some reason from the very beginning of the blue barrel saga it just doesn't make sense to me. It does seem like something DP would do in order to send LE on a wild goose chase.

While I respect that you believe he had to have help I just don't see that he had to have any help to remove a 100 pound body. He is not that puny and the adrenaline would be pumping overtime, imo.

But we will see and I hope we all know the correct answer one way or the other one day.

imoo

Somehow for some reason I see DP just laughing his a^^ off as everyone scrambled to look for the infamous blue barrel. I find him that diabolical. I think he lives to pull the wool over people's eyes as if it is one big joke. He is a jerk no doubt about it but he is not a stupid man. If he had been stupid then he would have been arrested months ago. I just feel he was playing a game to throw LE off their game. Being a police officer for 29 years he knows how they think.

He certainly looks capable of moving a 100 pound body right by himself. He knows the less anyone else knows the better. If one other person knows something then it is not a secret.

I just feel that the blue barrel is a red herring but I would love to be wrong.

imo
I agree. DrewP knows men that reportedly would be able to keep a secret. He has other family members, fellow officers and reputably had some organized crime ties. But instead of asking them for help, he turned to someone who he seems to view as 'weak.' To me that doesn't make sense. Unless the plan was that TM would tell what he knows if needed, if the disappearance is investigated. To me it sounds like more of a diversionary tactic.

Now if TM was able to say we left the body here, LE would go there and search. DrewP knows this. But that is just one place. Insead DrewP has made sure there are multiple places, the airport where the car was, the airport where the ultralight was, TM with the drop off place and a storage area. The more places there are, the larger the search area. DrewP was making the search area so big, with the goal that they wouldn't be able to search all of it.

I think DrewP used his knowlege of forensics and people to lay false trails in the hopes that LE would be so busy running them down that they would never be able to come up with the right one.

One rumor in the case is that DrewP knew someone with a crematory and that Stacy was cremated with another scheduled body. That her ashes are now mixed with that persons. One theory I have seen is that DrewP got his hands on some chemicals (acid) and that Stacy was dissolved, then the barrel disposed of (thus the need for the three days.) I have seen other similar theories on other cases, but have never seen any of them proven.

I agree with your assessment of DrewP and I believe that his joky folksy personality is also a diversion, he uses it to hide what he is really thinking. He says things that he knows will anger people, to keep them thinking about what he said, not what he isn't saying. After all, he can't be prosecuted for being a chauvinist. I do think he had visions of getting away with it, and making money off it at the same time. I do think that he enjoyed being in the spotlight.

I think Stacy's car was there when she left at 9;30am and gone when she returned.

It makes sense that if Drew killed Stacy that Sunday morning before she left the house, and was going to claim that she went to see her grandfather at the assisted care home, he'd have to do something with her car. If he left her car in the driveway, people would say "how did she go see her grandfather if her car is still here?"

Most people think that Drew drove her car to the nearby airport that was just around the corner from their house, left it there and walked back home - about a five minute walk.
Yeah, my theory is that the kids were sent to their rooms and told to close the doors and Stacy was taken out and put into that car before it was moved. DrewP is autocratic, if the kids were told to go to their rooms and close the doors, they would have done it.

The one thing that Drewp didn't want to risk was that the kids might go into the br and see Stacy and I think he would have gotten her out of the house right away. There was also the danger that Sharon or Cass might stop over and expect to see Stacy. So her car had to go, so that he could say she left. After that, he started setting up diversionary tactics and at the same time trying to give the impression that it was just another day and he was just another husband whose wife left him.

While he was away from the home that first time, I think he probably was setting up arrangements to move Stacy's remains somewhere. Then after the little ones went to bed that night, DrewP started moving cars, and disposed of her remains.

I think that Cass surprised him, I think he thought he would have one more day before Cass made a report if he couldn't convince her. So that is an advantage, she didn't wait that one more day.

The three days after? I do think that DrewP was doing something related to Stacy. When he was near the home he covered his face so that people on the street wouldn't recognize him. Then all of a sudden he quit hiding and started mugging for the camera.

The single striking change in his behavior, to me, you summarized in the last paragraph. Why did he go from Secret Squirrel to Top Cat?

My opinion is that he will NEVER admit what he's done. Imagine admitting to your youngest children that you killed their mother. Then imagine admitting to you older children that (1) you killed their birth mother and then (2) that you killed their adoptive mother. Drew Peterson will NEVER admit wrongdoing.

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! Great to read the posts here and all of those who remember so much Especially Leila. You are good

After reading all this I'm struck by how DP changed his MO (in MHO serial killing ways) regarding Stacy. He KNEW he couldn't leave Stacy in the house and claim an "accidental" death. Can't you just picture it? No way he could have this happen to a SECOND wife.

He knew he had to move her and fast. This makes me think that he had very little time to move her body. Cassandra was all over him like a fly on chit. I so hope this is Stacy and Drew made a mistake in thinking he could get away with this.

JOLIET, Ill. - Some of the Midwest's highest-profile unsolved crimes -- including the disappearance of Stacy Peterson and the slayings of five women in a clothing store -- may be investigated by suburban Chicago law enforcement agencies that have banded together.

Authorities in Will and Grundy counties, along with the Illinois State Police and the FBI, are forming a Major Crimes Task Force, officials said at a news conference Tuesday.

He spent the day doing things that require witnesses. By that, I mean that going to the airport with a couple of kids, taking them over to Sharon's and being gone only 15 minutes, etc., hwas a way for him to leave a trail of witnesses that he was involved that day with life's mundane things.

Just getting away with enough time to drop a container with his wife's body is difficult and scary enough. On a strictly common sense note, there simply wasn't enough time for dismemberment. In addition, Drew Peterson is a coward, he simply wouldn't have had the guts to do something so grisly.
Hi Thesleuther, I give you a as well as a thanks for that post.

I can't imagine him risking the physical slaughtering of Stacy's body either. Not only because of his cowardice, but also because of the possibility forensics would tell a tale on him down the road. Eventually LE would track his whereabouts that day {and the next 3}, and the spatter and grisley blood bath would be still traceable, up to 7 years. And I know that for a fact, as a great and well trained Human Remains Recovery dog or blood specialist dog can go back at least that far.

Remembering Eddie and Keela from Madeleine McCann's case. They are exceptional dogs tho, among the very best in the world. Keela, the blood specialist, can even differentiate between fresh live blood and the blood from a dead body. xox

I anticipate more news in the week to come. And I have the maps imbedded in my mind, visualizing that whoever's body this was that landed on that stretch of riverbank, she will be named and the story of how she got there will be told afterall. I have faith in that. Afterall, whoever put this body there never looked into the future, and how nature works, and that in the end, the evidence will tell the final and true story. xox
I think I didn't do a good enough job of comunicating what I meant earlier. My appologies. I honestly do not know if the barrel was found upstream or downstream. I have now seen reports saying both and will confess I am confused on that point.

What I was really trying to say, is if additional remains or bones were found, and if they were in the water, and if they were a mile away from the original remains, then there had to be something very closely nearby that prompted them to do a thorough search right there. In water, particularly in fresh water, there is absolutely zero chance of finding anything such as a bone simply by doing a broad or random sweep. You simply will not find anything unless you have a pretty good idea that it is down there and a fairly limited area. Say no more then 50 to 100 yards square. The speed with which they located the remains indicates that they had something that pointed them to that somewhat specific area.

This assumes that the bone was actually found in the river, and not on the shoreline or on shore. Early reports said it was in the water. But that may have just been talking head news show exuberance.

Well said Panthera, and I almost always agree with you. Now if this is my 3rd post in a row, well I'll say, Good Golly Miss Molly, where is everyone?

Hi Faefrost, I understand completely what you are saying. I thought that myself about finding something pertinent in water unless it was floating and hooked up in some way.

In the link where they talked about the Sat finding/s, a thank you to the searchers was also given.

That told me that searchers had come upon this discovery about a mile upstream and was probably followed up immediately by these men from the crime lab and investigator who needed assistance getting down to the exact location thru Dow Chemical property. I don't know this as a fact, only an assumption on my part due to the way the article was written.

No news today? I was so hoping we would get another tid-bit or 2.

xox

PS: Don't worry about the upstream/downstream part of it. Both were stated in links and journos are often wrong about the facts they give out. I could write a thesis on that

I agree, for all the reasons you've stated. Also, Drew didn't have time to dismember her body.

Yes Leila, maybe up to 3 days to dismember and distribute her remains.

I still wonder about the liability of him doing this, as if it were ever discovered where he carried out this possible dismemberment , current 'state of the art' forensics would rule and most likely tell a tale on him. IMO

If I were a police officer I would worry about that and get rid of her body in the most simple way I could. Give her to the river in a weighted box to let time be on his side. Proving he had done it after many months might be difficult at best.

We will see. We just don't know yet if this is what happened. But very seldom do we ever see a perfect crime, actually, almost never. xox

This makes a lot of sense! If Drew backed Stacy's car up in the driveway as close to the garage or partially in the garage, and brought her body out through the door leading from the house to the garage, he could quickly place her in the trunk and then drive the car out of the neighborhood to the airport around the corner. That would account for the cadaver dog hit on Stacy's car.

I think that trip to Cushing to put the FAA stickers on his ultralight was a cover for making arrangements for her disposal. Perhaps he met someone at the airport?

The three days of "head clearing" has always bother me.

This is a great idea! Sometimes bringing in new people brings a fresh perspective to a problem, and this might prove to be the case here.

Thanks! :blushingsmiley:

It's been so long since the beginning of this case, and everyone here is bringing forward some of the major topics of discussion at that time. I find that someone will mention something and it jogs my memory.

"If we can bring somebody to justice, that's good," another crew member said.

He's talking about Drew Peterson, the ex-cop and accused murderer who's long been suspected in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy. Many searchers believe it was her remains that washed up on shore about three-quarters of a mile from Mugzy's Saloon, where family members have launched search efforts.

And they were out yesterday again when one man says they found evidence: an arm bone from shoulder to elbow. He wanted his identity withheld but praised the efforts of the volunteer searchers.

This May 24th article states that family members were searching. I never heard that before.

While I respect that you believe he had to have help I just don't see that he had to have any help to remove a 100 pound body. He is not that puny and the adrenaline would be pumping overtime, imo.

But we will see and I hope we all know the correct answer one way or the other one day.

Like you, I can see how a man would be able to remove a heavy container by himself, given the right situation I would expect that I would be able to do it if necessary. However, there may be some reasons why DP did ask for help.
If the container was difficult to manuver to bring from the upstairs. He couldn't risk getting strange marks, scuffs along the walls or drag marks on the floors, are floors all carpeted or would they be tile/wood?
If he had struggled with Stacy before she was dead, it's also possible that she managed to get some very good kicks/hits in (oh I so hope she did!) DP may not have been at his best physically! By the time the container was moved, several hours had passed, the adrenelin that would have been surging through his body would have lessened. He IMO would have been feeling weaker because of that also.
Can't forget his arrogance, why would he need to put himself out when he can get someone he views as beneith him to help. The mistake he made was in thinking TM would not talk.
Imo Drew has a pattern of bringing other people in to help with things, remember how he had his friend come to Kathleens house so someone else could find her body? He liked to have other people involved, in his mind he was the puppet-master of all.
