Stacy Peterson cast a long shadow over her husband’s trial in Savio's death, even though Judge Edward Burmila didn't allow her name to be spoken in court. It was hearsay evidence from Savio’s attorney Harry Smith that led to Drew Peterson’s conviction. Smith testified that Stacy Peterson told him Drew Peterson murdered Savio.
Drew Peterson has long contended that Stacy Peterson ran away from him and doesn’t want to be found. A year after her disappearance he told the AP, “If I was a little girl and the focus of all this media attention, I wouldn't be coming back. Why would a little girl come back to that?” Search parties conducted by authorities and Stacy Peterson’s family have proven fruitless; Drew Peterson’s stepbrother believes he may have helped him dispose of Stacy’s body; and Drew Peterson irritated neighbors by taking down their memorials to Stacy.
Wherever she may be, maybe Stacy is laughing at her husband's current run of luck. But we doubt it.
