Peterson About to Win in Court
They have no eyewitnesses, no confession and no DNA to show ex-Bolingbrook cop Drew Peterson killed Kathleen Savio — only disputed secondhand statements and conflicting autopsy reports.
That limited, sometimes contradictory, circumstantial evidence means Will County prosecutors are going to have a hard time convincing jurors the now 58-year-old Peterson murdered his third wife, legal experts say.
“I think it’s really going to be tough for the state,” said attorney Paul DeLuca, a former prosecutor in Cook and DuPage counties now in private practice.
Will County taxpayers are most likely going to get soaked should Peterson be cleared. Every day this psycho has been in jail (and yes, we believe he killed both wives), is going to be viewed as a day served to settle a political vendetta. They've even passed a "hearsay law" that flies in the face of hundreds of years of precedent in order to present what has to be the weakest murder case in Illinois history.
