Lenny and Paula: Drew Peterson tossed evidence at my house!


July 25, 2008

BOLINGBROOK -- The couple claiming they spied on Drew Peterson for nearly seven months and recorded his conversations for the cops said Thursday that Peterson "disposed" of what they believe was evidence during a visit to their home in December.

"He disposed of things in my presence on my property," said Paula Stark, who with her husband, Len Wawczak, said she wore a wire at the behest of the state police and surreptitiously recorded Drew Peterson's conversations.

The state police suspect Peterson in the "potential homicide" of his missing fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, and are also investigating the March 2004 death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Savio's death was first ruled accidental but declared a homicide in the wake of Stacy Peterson's October disappearance.

Stark said her husband was not home when Peterson showed up at her residence. She declined to specify what exactly Peterson got rid of or how he did it.

"(Peterson) knows what he disposed of at my house," Stark said. "That's on the tape, and that's something I won't take to my grave."

Stark and Wawczak, who had avoided the media through Wednesday, granted numerous interviews and allowed television crews into their home Thursday.

Geraldo Rivera's brother and show correspondent, Craig Rivera, flew in from New York to meet with the couple in the afternoon.

Posing as AshleyAlso Thursday, Wawczak admitted to carrying on a fake romance with Peterson over the Internet, posing as a young woman named Ashley.

Peterson's attorney, Joel Brodsky, questioned what would motivate Wawczak to pretend to be a woman while chatting online with Peterson. Brodsky also said that while he did distrust Wawczak, he was not convinced he or Stark actually wore wires for the state police.

Brodsky said he first grew suspicious of Wawczak in March, when the couple said state police confiscated a gun Peterson had given them after his firearm owner's identification card was revoked. They later said they surrendered the gun to state police themselves.

"Oh yeah, I knew he was a snitch from the time the whole gun thing went down," Brodsky said.
Claim contradictedWawczak said he was not bothered by Brodsky's comments.

"I know what we have," Wawczak said. "Drew knows what we have too."

Wawczak also called Peterson a liar, saying the former Bolingbrook police officer's claim that he'd arrested Wawczak regularly was not true. Wawczak said Peterson never arrested him, which police Lt. Ken Teppel corroborated.

Teppel, however, said he arrested Wawczak one time himself, picking him up on a disorderly conduct charge in 1999.

If Paula Stark knew what Peterson was disposing of & did not tell the police, doesn't that make her an accomplice? Or at least with- holding evidence? If she & Lenny Wawczak are such upstanding citizens, why did they wait so long to go to the police? Also, it seems like it would be harrassement or entraptment or blackmail for Lenny to pretend he's a woman flirting online with Peterson. What could he possible get out of doing that? Now I do not know Drew Peterson, but unfortunatley I did know Lenny & Paula when I was in my late teens. Based on my own personal experience with them, they are nothing but loosers & scammers.

Drew Peterson is nothing but pig shit. He stole this son's inheritence after he murdered their mother. Now her son's are learning how to live life ala Peterson. How sad. Peterson will rot in hell. No doubt about it.

Does it really matter what kind of people Paula & Lenny are? They got people thinking about Stacy again and look into his 3rd. wife death. I too grew up with Paula and Lenny (Paula is my cousin) and no matter what people think about them they did something, What did you do?

Lenny and Paula are just a couple of grave robbing thieves who are focused on money and incablable of carring about anyone. They should be looked at a little closer if you ask me.

I have to disagree with you. It takes a lot of guts to go up against a policeman in the Chicago area, even in a suburb like Bolingbrook. I don't care what they have ever done or said in their lives prior to Drew, they have brought at least a chance of justice to Kathleen and Stacy. I wish the best for them. And I still hope Drew burns in hell. The cocky-ness of his voice coming out of that ugly face is absolutely disgusting.
