Fox Chicago News reported Wednesday night that documents stolen from an Illinois State Police car and dropped off at the station reveal new information in cases involving former Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson.

The information includes a timeline of what investigators think happened to his fourth wife, Stacy, who disappeared in October 2007, a list of 59 leads and the police report from the night his third wife, Kathleen Savio, died.

The documents include information already made public, but with new details reportedly indicating Stacy was dead by 10:59 a.m. the day she vanished. That night, investigators alleged, Peterson removed the body with his stepbrother in a "large blue round plastic container weighing approximately 150 pounds with [a] screw-on top with clear plastic protruding from outside."

Investigators believe Peterson may have disposed of Stacy's body in a quarry in the Bolingbrook area, according to the files. Wednesday, state police searched the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal in Romeoville and Lockport for evidence connected to Stacy's disappearance.

Peterson is the suspect in Stacy's disappearance. Authorities are also taking a second look at the March 2004 death of Savio.

Peterson has not been charged in either case and denies wrongdoing. Peterson said he didn't know the specifics of what Fox would air but said he wasn't worried. "Any timeline they have is purely speculative," he said.

Peterson and attorney Joel Brodsky said they were to meet with Fox last week about the files, but it never materialized because Brodsky wanted to see them first. A spokesman for Will County State's Atty. James Glasgow said the documents will not compromise the cases or pressure Glasgow to file charges before the investigations are done.
