    Peterson Attorney Seeks Items' Return
    By DON BABWIN – 7 hours ago

    JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — Guns, two vehicles and other items seized from Drew Peterson's home after his wife disappeared should be returned, an attorney for the former police officer said Wednesday, arguing authorities are trying to "vex" his client.

    John Carroll, who spoke at a hearing in Will County Court, also belittled the warrant that allowed for the seizures after Peterson's wife vanished more than a month ago. He said it's only reasonable if Illinois State Police believe Drew Peterson used all 11 guns to kill his wife and both vehicles to transport her body.

    "That's ludicrous," said Carroll, one of the former Bolingbrook police officer's attorneys.

    "There's not even an indictment," Carroll said, adding there is "just innuendo."

    Authorities have called a suspect in his wife's disappearance but he has not been charged.

    Stacy Peterson was last seen Oct. 28 and reported missing by her family the next day. Drew Peterson, a longtime member of the Bolingbrook Police Department until he quit after his wife's disappearance, has said he believes his wife left him for another man and is alive.

    Prosecutor John Connor defended the warrant and authorities' decision to keep the seized items, saying defense attorneys are "attempting to put a clock on the state (police) in their investigation." He said it's far too soon to talk about returning all the items.
