Peoria, IL– A cellmate of Drew Peterson’s believes his cellie had an accomplice in the disposal of his wife’s remains, and that accomplice is talking to police.
Peterson, in prison awaiting trial for the murder of wife no. 3, Kathleen Savio, reportedly told his bunk buddy the identity of the individual who helped him bury Stacy Peterson, according to TMZ.
Will County Sheriff’s Office then approached the alleged accomplice, who in turn led them to private hunting grounds just outside of Metamora, Illinois.
With the landowner’s permission, Cadaver k9’s were used to confirm the possible burial site, which immediately led police to the exact location of what is alleged to be that of the remains of Stacy Peterson, inside an enclosed metal drum.
Further confirmation, possibly through the use of ground penetrating radar, (GPR) indicated their is a large container consistent with the witness account, within the soil.
The Illinois State Police was dispatched to guard the property overnight, and crews will begin digging this morning.
