    After pursing Drew Peterson for 1 1/2 years after the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, authorities in Illinois closed in Thursday, arresting the former Chicago-area police sergeant on two counts of first-degree murder in the drowning death of his third wife.

    Peterson — who launched into the national spotlight after Stacy Peterson's suspicious disappearance in October 2007 — is being held on $20 million bond, police and prosecutors said Thursday night at a news conference.

    Peterson, 55, hasn't been charged in Stacy Peterson's disappearance. But he now is criminally accused of killing Kathleen Savio, the third wife, who was found at home dead in a dry bathtub on March 1, 2004.

    I actually think it was because he was slick enough to do away with any tangible evidence and knew better than to say anything to incriminate himself. He might be dumb but he isn't stupid. I hope that he goes away for a long long time if he did do it. My opinion is that he did. Nobody loses more than one wife "suspiciously" and it not be a coincidence.

    I'd call poking the prosecutors with a stick and rubbing their nose in it with his antics a bit on the stupid side. ;)

    Now if he would man up and tell what he did with Stacy the world would be a better place. Well, my mind anyway.
    I think so and steady steps will prove to be very fruitful.

    Agreed. Lets hope they don't flub up the prosecution and trial.

    We seem to have a few issues with our law enforcement cases in Chicagoland these days. :(
