On Oct. 26, Stacy Peterson told her husband Drew, a policeman, she wanted a divorce. Two days later she was gone. Sounds suspicious doesn't it. Well even more so when you hear about his past.
Drew is 53 and 30 years his wife’s senior, having met and allegedly dated her when she was 17 and while he was still married to his then 40-year-old wife, Kathleen Savio. Stacy Peterson is Sgt. Peterson’s fourth wife and he has a total of eight children.
Drew allegedly told Stacy he was single when he was still married to his third wife. Sound familiar? Another wife-killer told similar lies concerning his marital status, Scott Peterson told Amber Frey he was a widower.
Drew allegedly threatened and beat his third wife, Kathleen, who he married less than three months after his second divorce. Of the 18 individual reports of domestic abuse from their household, at least half were related to allegations of physical abuse by one or both parties to the marriage.
After his divorce from Kathleen, things continued to be pretty ugly because of $2,000-per-month child support payments. One day Kathleen was found dead in an empty whirlpool-style bath tub. Her head reportedly showed signs of trauma and there was blood in her wet hair. It was ruled an accident.
Drew is now a suspect in Stacy's disappearance and of course denies any foul play. Authorities are also now investigating the death of Kathleen Savio.
