Drew Peterson’s wife missing 10 years: All that’s happened since

From early on in his wife Stacy’s disappearance, Drew Peterson passed himself off as a devil-may-care serial marriage victim, unfairly suspected in the death of one wife and the disappearance of another.

Stacy Peterson has now been gone for 10 years — she was last seen on Oct. 28, 2007, and reported missing the following day — and by now even Peterson’s son Stephen Peterson has admitted that his father’s joking attitude is “not funny anymore.”

Even early supporters like his son came to believe that there was no good explanation for the disappearance of Stacy, Drew’s fourth wife, and the passing of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in a bathtub in 2004.

Authorities took a new look at Savio’s death after Stacy Peterson disappeared. A jury eventually convicted Drew Peterson of Savio’s murder, and he was sentenced to 38 years in prison.
