This is pathetic.  The Herrman's know what happened to this little boy. 
They get reduced restitution of 15K, 5K in court costs each.  They have let this woman get away with disposing of a boy she didn't like. There is no justice for this child.

Drew Peterson bites the dust!

The Prairie Chicken
September 6, 2012

Everyone in the world knows by now that Drew Peterson was found guilty this afternoon of the 2004 1st degree murder of Kathleen Savio, his ex-wife.  All that's left is the number of years he gets to live in the penitentiary.  I find 60 a nice round number.

The verdict itself was not much of a surprise but you never know for sure, one has to ponder the state of the judicial system and the results of these "sensational" trials, the effect of the media scrutiny on the entire cast from the judge to the victim.  It's all a crap shoot. 

Peterson's team of attorneys will, no doubt, have years of work filing appeals, fighting the inclusion of Kathleen Savio's hearsay statements. 

The Bolingbrook folks can rest assured that Peterson won't be skulking around the neighborhood any time soon, and if he ever gets an opportunity to do so, he won't have a position of authority to back up his bullying.

Hopefully, the families of Kathleen Savio and Stacy Cales Peterson, 4th wife of Peterson who is currently missing, will be able to contact the children of their dear lost one, something that has not happened since shortly after Stacy's disappearance.  The children have had no contact with their mothers families.  Peterson's way of getting rid of them for good. 

Various news web sources have reported that Stephen, Peterson's son from his first marriage has been raising his four younger siblings, apparently with Peterson's police pension of $6,000 monthly, more or less.  That pension should be withdrawn, with Peterson's crime having been committed while he was an active Bolingbrook police officer.  Stephen himself was fired from the same police department several years ago, so he'd have to find a job.  Bar's always need bouncers. 

Then there is Peterson's oldest son Eric.  He has stayed far away from the spotlight and drama of his fathers world.  All I've read about him was a statement that he had no feeling either way about his father.  No love, no hate.  His privacy should definitely be respected, but I still have to wonder why.

So now remains the last piece of this whole ugly puzzle.  Where is Stacy Cales Peterson?  At least when she's found, Drew Peterson will be easy to find.

Another foot found in Canada!

Right:  This old boot is NOT connected to this case.

Human Foot Found In Sasamat Lake, Canada

British Columbia has been riddled by eight human feet washing ashore in the province and another appendage was found on the shore of Sasamat Lake near Port Moody on Friday, The Vancouver Sun reports.
This is at least the ninth foot discovered in British Columbia since 2007...

Also read: Another severed foot found in B.C. waters
and: Two feet that washed ashore in B.C. identified from Seattlepi.com.

This one is a men’s size 12 black Cougar brand hiking boot, found November 7, 2011.  Authorities keep saying there is no sign of foul play.  Yeah?  Please, if my foot is ever detached from my leg, assume there HAS been foul play and work from there.

In May of this year, Charla Nash received a full face transplant at Woman’s Hospital of Boston. A team of 30 doctors, nurses and anesthesiologists worked for 20 hours to perform the extremely rare procedure - the third time the surgery had been performed there.

  In 2009, Nash was attacked by Herrod's 15-year-old chimpanzee, Travis, after Herrod called and requested her help in getting control of Travis, who was having an "off" day.   When paramedics arrived, they found that Travis had ripped off Nash’s entire upper jaw and nose, and had chewed off Nash’s fingers, shredding both of her hands.  Travis was killed by police on the day of the attack.

Warren Jeffs Guilty

The Prairie Chicken
August 8, 2011

Warren Jeffs finally is found guilty of raping two "child brides."  The penalty could be up to 119 years, 99 years for sex with the 12 year old and 20 for the 14 year old, if maximum sentences are given to be served consecutively.  The judge could be lenient, but we are talking about Texas.  The best I believe will be the judge allowing the sentences, what ever they may be, to be served concurrently. 

Why would these dimwits choose Texas, anyway?  I don't even exceed the speed limit when I'm in Texas.  They just don't fool around.  There are 400, give or take, people on death row and they actually execute around 15 every year. 

Here's hoping for a long sentence for this guy.  Life in Texas prison.  oh my...
