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.
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.,0,6934274.story?coll=chi_tab01_layout

The families of a police sergeant's third and fourth wives have banded together to get to the bottom of what befell their loved ones.

"I like to think of it as one big family," said Pamela Bosco, a longtime acquaintance of police Sgt. Drew Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, who has been missing from her Pheasant Chase Court home for 16 days.

Bosco feels Stacy Peterson's relatives, for whom she is acting as a spokeswoman, and that of Peterson's third wife, share a family bond in dealing with "terrible things happening to women.",4_1_JO13_MISSING_S1.article,2933,311156,00.html

Authorities in a Chicago suburb exhumed a body in the investigation of a local woman's disappearance.
Investigators dug up the body of Kathleen Savio Tuesday morning in their continuing investigation of Stacy Peterson’s disappearance. Her husband, Drew Peterson, has been named a suspect in the case.

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.
The body of Kathleen Savio was exhumed this morning and taken to the Will County morgue, and authorities said an autopsy on the third wife of a Bolingbrook police officer whose fourth wife is missing will be conducted later today.

Results of that autopsy are not expected to be available to investigators for several days and will not be released to the public, the Will County state's attorney's office said in a statement.

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.
I just saw a promo for tomorrow's Today Show - it said Matt Lauer was going to interview Drew Peterson. Hmmmm.

The Today Show starts at 7 AM EST - it's on NBC.
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.
