The shovel can be purchased for $9.99 or less depending on where you live. I thought the defense attorney might be able to use this on his interviews as he shovels his way out from under the mounds of garbage that are piling up on the Drew Peterson case.
Today, Illinois States Attorney's James Glascow office issued the final results in the death of Officer Wife Kathleen Savio. The medical exaimer's report: ruled Kathleen's death a Homicide. In a bold move, Drew Peterson's legal counsel Joel Brodsky, a Chicago attorney, appeared on the Nancy Grace show by telephone. A skilled defense attorney whose client is suppose to be innocent would not be defending and disecting a medical exaimer's report line by line on national televsion. In case you missed the lamb roast with Nancy Grace this evening, here's the link:
If your client is not guilty, your first words should be " That's good news, now lets find her killer, my client is innocent". Those words of sincere interest to find Kathleen Savio's killer were never even touched upon during the interview with Nancy Grace.
In addition, this opens up the Savio family law suit that was filed just weeks ago holding Drew Peterson, potentially liable in civil court for her death.
January 2008 news when Savio Family hired a lawyer:
BOLI NGBROOK, Ill। (CBS) ― Former Bolingbrook police sergeant Drew Peterson is about to face another legal battle, this time involving the family of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Savio's relatives just hired a big-name New York lawyer. CBS 2 West Suburban Bureau Chief Mike Puccinelli has an exclusive report on a new lawsuit. It's a 40-page document that lays the groundwork for Savio's family to sue former Peterson in civil court. On page three it says, "your petitioners are prepared to initiate a wrongful death cause of action against drew Peterson on behalf of the estate of Kathleen Savio" whose death the document goes on to say " was not an accident and it was not suicide." "The problem with that is, first of all they have to prove it was in fact a wrongful death, it was something other than an accident or suicide," said CBS 2 legal analyst Irv Miller. "But even more important, if they establish that, they still have to establish he's the one that did it." But before the wrongful death suit can be filed, Savio's estate has to be reopened. Thursday's notice of motion asks a judge to do just that. In the motion the Savios also ask that James Carroll, the executor of Savio's handwritten will, be removed from the case. As an uncle of Drew's they say he has a conflict of interest. They also say Carroll "wasted and mismanaged the estate" by permitting all "the assets of the marriage to pass to Drew Peterson, and away from the beneficiaries of the estate." That, they argue, goes against Savio's wish of having all her "worldly possessions" go to her children. "They have a pretty good argument to name a neutral individual to take over the estate as opposed to someone who is directly interested since that person is a relative of Drew Peterson," Miller said. The filing also contains a document showing that immediately after Carroll was named executor of Savio's estate, Carroll, acting as his own attorney, fired Savio's divorce attorney. Sixteen days later during final divorce proceedings a publicly appointed administrator noted that no one representing the children's interests was present in court when all of the couple's assets, other than Savio's life insurance, were awarded to Drew Peterson. He said the effect of the judgment was to transfer anywhere from $144,000 to $288,000 from the four children who were beneficiaries of the estate to Drew Peterson. One person who was familiar with the case wouldn't go on camera but summed up the division of assets this way saying, "They screwed the kids to benefit Drew Peterson." The Savios' new attorney, John Q. Kelly, is New York lawyer who represented the estate of Nicole Brown Simpson in a successful civil suit against OJ Simpson. He confirmed his involvement in the case. Peterson's attorney, Joel Brodsky, said, "They'll never be able to prove Drew did anything wrong, or caused the death of Kathleen Savio. If by some miscarriage of justice they get a judgment against Drew -- the money would be going to Drew and Kathy's children anyway. It's a fruitless act."
Stacy Peterson, wife #4 is still missing. I am wondering why the Illinois State police are not seeing through on the letter Peterson says he received from an unknown person from Peoria, Illinois back in November 12, 2007 who says they spoted "Stacy Peterson at a Kroger grocery store with a pudge." I will bet you anything Drew Peterson is behind this mysterious letter. An abuser always wants to leave a crumb behind ( its a catch me if you can ego trip)and in my opinion this mystery letter, is no mystery at all , if it's postmarked, this should lead police to where Stacy was buried. Isn't Drew's favorite show C.S.I. anyway? Or was this done by someone else in an old case he once worked on in the early days of his career?
