Police seize Savio bathtub

rot-roe. Not looking good for ole Drewsky. What's that old saying, Karma is a bitch? hehehe...

BOLINGBROOK To be used in future prosecution of homicide of Drew's 3rd wife, officials say

June 1, 2008

State Police investigators probing the death of Drew Peterson's third wife have custody of the bathtub where the woman was found dead in 2004, authorities said.

Investigators hauled away the tub in recent days for use in the future prosecution of the homicide of Kathleen Savio, said Charles Pelkie, a spokesman for the Will County state's attorney's office.

The bathtub removal was done with the full cooperation of the family that now owns the home, Pelkie said. The family was compensated, a source said.

Savio, 40, was in the midst of a nasty divorce from Drew Peterson, then a Bolingbrook police sergeant, when she was found dead in the bathtub of her Bolingbrook home on March 1, 2004. There was no water in the bathtub, and her hair was drenched with blood from a head laceration.

Her death was first ruled an accidental drowning, but investigators reopened the case after Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, disappeared Oct. 29 from their Bolingbrook home.
A new forensic exam in November ruled Savio's death a homicide.

The Sun-Times has reported that Stacy Peterson told a clergyman her husband boasted he killed Savio but made it look like an accident. Drew Peterson has been named as a suspect in Stacy's disappearance...
