Murder victim Kathleen Savio’s brother made this public statement after hearing Drew Peterson’s guilty verdict of first degree murder. Kathleen’s mother said that “12 people did the right thing” in convicting Peterson.
Drew Peterson sat stone-faced as the courtroom gasped. Outside the courtroom, crowds yelled Loser! Loser! as defense attorneys stated their intention to appeal.
The jury was able to convict Peterson on hearsay evidence due to Illinois appellate court ruling that prosecutors could use eight statements made by both Kathleen before her death and by Stacy before her disappearance. The jury voted three times, coming back with 7, then 8, then 11 in favor of a guilty verdict. Juror Ron Supalo wanted to “sleep” on his decision, and ultimately could not find reasonable doubt over Peterson being at the crime scene.
Due to relentless investigating and fact-finding, a murderer has been convicted and now faces 20 to 60 years in prison. The sentencing hearing is scheduled for November 26.
Who will now come forward to offer information relevant to Stacy Peterson’s death? Stacy and Kathleen may have been at odds while living, but they are being heard in unison after their deaths. To those who know in part what happened to Stacy, Drew no longer has control over you. Come forward and give Stacy Peterson her justice.
