Just weeks before Drew Peterson faces a jury for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, Peterson’s defense team is trying to silence Kathleen Savio one last time. Joel Brodsky, Peterson’s defense attorney, has filed a motion that the trial not include “any evidence that Kathleen Savio was fearful for her life or expressed to anyone any fears regarding physical danger from Drew Peterson.”

When I first started on the case, right after Stacey went missing, I remember being at Sharon Bychowski’s house — Peterson’s neighbor. Sharon was so kind to everyone, opening her home to the media, and literally, anyone who wanted to help find Stacy Peterson. It was Sharon who first tipped off Greta and myself that she feared Drew had killed Stacey, because Stacey had told Sharon she was afraid of her husband, was planning on leaving him, and feared her for her life.

A few days into the disappearance of Stacey, Sharon had a house full of people, and I asked Sharon who the quiet woman with the dark hair by the window was, and she replied, “that’s Kathleen Savio’s sister, Kathleen was Drew’s third wife, she was found dead in the bathtub around the corner a few years ago.” “He probably killed her too,” Sharon added. I went over to her and the woman introduced herself as Anna Doman. When she learned who I was, she said she had something I might be interested in at her house — a box of stuff that belonged to her dead sister. Anna mixed no words when it came to Drew Peterson — she said that her sister’s death wasn’t an accident, and she knew who killed Kathleen. She believed it was Drew Peterson.

When I arrived at Doman home the next day with Mark Fuhrman, what we saw was shocking. A box containing Kathleen Savio’s private notes, documenting police visits to the home on domestic violence related issues, all acompanying legal documents, and a detailed handwritten diary documenting abuse by Drew Peterson. Anna said the police had never been interested in the writings, because Savio’s death was classified an accident. Also tucked inside the box was a copy of Savio’s autopsy report. Once we aired these notes on Greta’s show, and Dr. Micheal Baden concluded from viewing the autopsy report that Savio’s death was not an accident, but indeed a homicide, all hell broke loose to say the least. The State was forced to exhume the body of Kathleen Savio under intense media pressure, and the police finally came by and collected the box of Savio’s notes. It is these notes that Brodsky doesn’t want a jury to see. I can understand why he doesn’t — I have read them all, and they are very damaging to Peterson, they are very telling as to what really happened to Kathleen Savio.

Also, this Sunday at 8:00 p.m. on my radio show, we will be discussing why Peterson has NOT been charged with the murder of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, who is still missing. Are prosecutors waiting for the outcome of the Savio case before charging Peterson with Stacy Peterson’s disappearance?? Perhaps a very smart move on their part. Join my legal panel for the discussion and find out why.

Joining me tonight are Dr. Brian Russell Dr Russell is a
Forensic Psychologist and an Attorney and expert counsel in court cases that involve mental issues.

And Charlie Doman. Charlie is the nephew of Kathleen Savio and also worked for Drew Peterson for years at the bar he owned.

Yesterday, Drew Peterson, the ex-cop from Bolingbrook, IL, who sits in jail for the murder of his 3rd wife, Kathleen Savio (while his 4th wife, Stacy Peterson remains missing), is now selling his Harley-Davidson on eBay. As he sits in jail on a $20,000,000.00 bond awaiting his fate, his lawyer, Joel Brodsky, defended his actions. “He’s not using it this summer,” Brodsky said to local media. “It’s a nice bike, it’s rare, and he figured rather than let it depreciate, he’d sell it off.” After checking in on the auction, there’s a $50,000.00 bid on the Harley. Well, it just so happens that the lawyer’s fees to date are approximately $50,000.00. If you don’t think the normally $25,000.00 bike is worth $50,000.00, here’s why; there’s the possibility of having Peterson autograph the bike. Trial for Peterson is expected to start June 15th. Que circus music.

It’s been interesting watching the media report the story of my alleged participation in the autopsy of former Bollingbrook police officer Drew Peterson’s third wife, Kathleen Savio.

For all of you who preferred to regurgitate inaccuracies, and didn’t take the time to simply call to check the facts, here they are:

It was through my work on Greta’s show, that we uncovered documents leading us to facts that questioned the original classification of Kathleen Savio’s death as an accident, and exposed egregious errors by the Bollingbrook Police Department, the original coroner and the coroner’s jury. Dr. Michael Baden agreed that the findings indicated Savio’s death was a homicide. After reviewing the same documents, the State Attorney’s office decided to exhume the body of Kathleen Savio and perform a second autopsy. The family of Kathleen Savio, weary of the State Attorney’s office, discussed with me having an additional private autopsy done, but knew they could never afford such an expensive endeavor. I took their interest to Dr. Michael Baden, and he volunteered his time. I was already in Chicago covering the case, and accompanied Dr. Baden on every endeavor while he was in town. I asked permission of the family to be in the room with Dr. Baden while the autopsy was performed, and they agreed. I agreed with the Savio family that I would only film Dr. Baden, and no images of the body would ever be filmed or aired. The family knew Dr. Baden would be reporting his findings, whichever way they concluded. During the autopsy, which lasted approximately 3 hours, I took extensive notes and shot video. I never had any physical contact with the body of Kathleen Savio, nor participated in “performing” the autopsy in any way. There were a least 6 Illinois State Police troopers in the room at any given time, and the entire experience was handled with the utmost respect to the Savio family, and most importantly to Kathleen.

There is no magic wizard behind the FOX News curtain, pulling strings to influence the findings by one of the country’s finest Forensic Pathologists. In conclusion, if Drew Peterson’s defense attorney is basing his case on the fact that I was in the autopsy room of a woman his client likely murdered, I would suggest he size Peterson up for a few more of those fancy orange jumpsuits he seems to like so much.

Pastor Neil Schori (http://www.napervillechristian.org/) found himself thrust into the media spotlight when he came forward with information that Stacy Peterson confided in him shortly before she disappeared. She stated that her cop husband, former Bolingbrook police officer Drew Peterson, not only murdered his ex-wife, but Stacey helped cover up the crime. As Peterson sits in jail awaiting trial, Neil has just met with the State Attorney’s office again. Will Drew be charged with Stacey’s murder as well? Neil will talk to us exclusively for the hour about his experience, his struggles to come forward with what a parishioner told him in confidence, his own fears and his family’s fears of Peterson. Now known as the twittering Pastor (resurrectedheart.com), learn how Neil has used this experience to better his Ministry, the lives of others and his work helping other victims of crimes. Please join us with your questions, Sunday night 12/20/09 at 8:00 p.m. live at Blogtalkradio.com/Watts-Up-with-This.

Neil Schori serves as lead pastor of Naperville Christian Church in the Chicago suburbs. Neil has a Master of Arts in counseling from Lincoln Christian Seminary. Over the past 10 years, Neil has served full time in several pastoral roles, ranging from family care and counseling to community groups and assimilation.
