    Why wasn't this poor woman's death rulled a homicide when she was found? :mad: How could all this evidence have been ignored? Her death was ruled an 'accident'.

    A new autopsy in the Savio case reveals bruising consistent with a struggle.

    There was a 1-inch blunt-force laceration on the back of her head, five scraping abrasions and six blunt-force, black-and-blue bruises on her extremities, abdomen and buttocks, the autopsy said

    You just took the words right out of my fingertips Paintr. As I was reading your posts, that is exactly what I was going to ask. I think someone needs to pay the piper on this one. IF they had not ignored what seems to be very obvious signs here, Stacy would still be alive. Plain and simple.

    This is complete Bullchit. I think the people responsible for looking the other way carry just as much guilt as drEWWWWW himself and they should be brought up for charges accordingly. This makes me beyond pissed, it makes me sick. I can't imagine how it makes her family feel. I hope Kathleens sons are aware of this, as much as it will hurt them to hear it, but maybe that will make tellin' the truth a bit easier when it comes to trial time for the dirtbag.

    I want nothing more than to wipe that smug grin offa his chin, and I pray they have what they need in order to do so.

    I have to say, I am enjoying the quiet of late from his mouthpiece Brodsky. I can't stand listening to him either. Those two are certainly a match made in he!!...........

    Peterson attorney Joel Brodsky dismissed the allegation, saying it was one of many claims that he would disprove.

    Peterson remains in jail, awaiting trial.


    Sorry TallCoolOne, but Mr Brodsky wasn't completely silent. lol

    I wonder if Mr Brodsky knew these results were about to hit the media and that was one reason he wanted the trial delayed.

    I am curious as to who did the very first autopsy and how could any coroner, even semi competent at his job, miss these indications. :waitasec:

    At the time, an autopsy determined Savio had drowned and a coroner's jury ruled the death accidental. State police Special Agent Herbert Hardy had informed the jury that an investigation turned up no indications of foul play in Savio's death.

    State police renewed their interest in Savio's death when the next wife - the now 24-year-old Stacy - vanished in October. State police have labeled their investigation of the young woman's whereabouts a potential homicide.

    I heard on the news that much of the new autopsy was based on the notations made on the first autopsy (where bruises, etc., were apparently ignored for purposes of finding cause of death but were still noted in the report.)

    ETA -- I must have misheard this. The newest autopsy report was not based partially on the first autopsy, but on the second, more recent one.

    Kathleen's body was embalmed and placed in a sealed casket so tissue would be much better preserved than a body left lying in the open.

    Savio's family has long voiced suspicions about the circumstances surrounding her death. In a lawsuit filed by the family, it is alleged that Peterson went to Savio's house on Feb. 28, 2004, to "brutally ... stalk, attack, repeatedly beat, then drown,” his third wife. Savio survived the attack for an unknown period of time before drowning, the lawsuit says.

    Soon after, Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow announced he was reopening Savio's case and said the scene of her death appeared to have been staged to conceal a homicide.

    Savio's remains were exhumed in November of 2007. Forensic pathologist Larry Blum examined her body and prepared the autopsy report released Thursday by Glasgow's office. A third autopsy was conducted by celebrity forensic pathologist Michael Baden at the behest of Savio's relatives. After his examination, Baden announced live on cable television his belief that the death was a homicide.

    So where is this State Police Special Agent Herbert Hardy? And why can't he be charge with conspiracy and for covering up a murder for his pal, Drew Peterson?

    I'm having to pull info from waaay back in my brain. So forgive me if I'm recalling any of this incorrectly. I believe the initial agent handling the case was on vacation or something and Hardy was only handed the case days before the hearing and was going off of what LE at the scene reported, who were Drew's friends.

    Just bouncing off of your post to add more. I believe the the original ME said his hands were tied by the Jury's ruling, but has aknowledged he could have overidden their decision. I don't think he's ever offered up a reason why he didn't.

    Now what I find really interesting is that somehow or another a LE friend of Drew's did end up sitting on that jury. He painted Drew in a very positive light to the other jurors. A few of the other juror's aknowledged that those statements influenced their decision. So I wanna know exactly how this cop ended up sitting on this jury. If it was purposeful, I would love to see this guy charged with OJ or Accessory after the fact.
