JOLIET, Ill. - Days before a Stacy Peterson vanished, she told a divorce attorney Harry Smith that husband Drew thought she suspected he had killed his previous wife and suggested extorting money from him to keep quiet, the lawyer testified Monday.
The dramatic details provided by Harry Smith were the first in more than three weeks of testimony that recounted Stacy Peterson talking directly about Drew Peterson's alleged involvement in the 2004 death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio...
Drew Peterson remains the only suspect in Savio's death and Stacy Peterson's disappearance...
...Smith said that Stacy Peterson had called him for her own divorce, but he told her he could not represent her because he thought it was a conflict of interest, (he having represented Kathleen Savio before her death.)
He told her that plan might be dangerous, but Stacy Peterson said her husband would never try to hurt her and that she had too much dirt on him at the police department. "She wasn't concerned about her safety," Smith said.
[before Savio's murder] a judge had told Harry Smith and Peterson's attorney that...Savio would be allowed to keep the couple's Bolingbrook home, receive a share of his police pension, receive child support and some money from the sale of a bar the couple had owned. "He was not happy, he was angry," said Smith recalling how he watched Drew Peterson's lawyer explain to him what the judge had told him... ewww, I'll bet he was po'd. what an evil man.
