Drew Peterson: Wife Killer?
When police arrived at Kathleen's house, they didn't follow standard procedures for investigating a death of unknown causea potential homicide. Judging by their actions, they had already concluded that Kathleen's death had been an accident, despite the evidence to the contrary that would be obvious to officials like State's Attorney James Glasgow looking at the case three years later.
When Glasgow, who was not State's Attorney at the time of Kathleen's death, reviewed the case after the 2007 disappearance of Stacy Peterson, he said the death scene in Kathleen's bathroom appeared to have been staged to look like an accident.
The trooper on whose testimony the jury leaned so heavily had not been present at either the death scene or at the autopsy, nor had he interviewed Drew Peterson, whose new wife, conveniently enough, provided his alibi.
Nevertheless, Kathleen Savio's death was officially ruled an accident.
