Drew Peterson seems to be the face of the age of the World Series of Poker. He has been to the big table (World-wide attention); face-off with the Rounders ( Larry King, Geraldo & etc.). He strutted and studded his way around tormenting the families of his victims. The Morons in the Media gave Drew what he demanded.
Now Drew is drawing dead. Didn't care to muck the cards. The Bluff is called. Pay up.
Let's see. Can anyone remember who won the World Series of Poker in 2007? I can't. Nor, do I care to do so. It will be the same with this goof.
The exception being the many, many people to whom this self-absorb louse brought anguish and sorrow.
Illinois State Police Capt. Carl Dobrich said investigators tracked more than 1,100 leads in Savio's death and the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, amassing some 500 gigabytes of digital information.
"Our journey has been far and wide; it has been exhausting," Dobrich said at a Thursday night news conference.
Thursday's arrest was coordinated by state police to take place when Peterson was away from home, where his four children were staying. But it also occurred shortly before an 18-month term expired for the special grand jury investigating Savio's death and Stacy Peterson's disappearance.
Glasgow denied the grand jury's time limit had anything to do with the timing of the arrest or the quality of the evidence against Peterson.
"We moved when we felt the time was appropriate, and we're very confident in our case," Glasgow said.
A major concern in the case was the issue of violence against women, an undercurrent that had driven national interest that only grew stronger as Peterson's antics grew more bizarre.
"Clearly we've had a serious situation with violence against women ... and we want to send a strong message that that is a grave and serious matter. It's not a laughing matter as has been made with this case."
Glasgow said he will prosecute the case himself.
Police arrested Peterson at 5:35 p.m. in a traffic stop at Lily Cache Lane and Weber Road in Bolingbrook.
