Drew Peterson, a convicted murderer formerly in state custody, has been moved to a holding facility in Joliet.
This follows his son’s confession that he believes his father to be guilty of murdering two of his wives.
Peterson entered custody in 2012. He was convicted of the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, who died in 2004.
Drew Peterson is suspected in the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson. She disappeared in 2007, causing suspicion to arise.
Savio died in a supposed drowning in the bathtub in her’s and Drew’s Bolingbrook, Illinois, home. Peterson was a police sergeant for the town.
His situation sounds like a typical “who-done-it” TV episode.

His fourth wife went missing in 2007, Peterson claims that the last he heard from her was a phone explaining that she’d left him for another man, police find the case suspicious and reopen the tragic death of his third wife.
The Chicago Tribune reported that Stacy Peterson has “never been found,” but the circumstances surrounding her disappearance are very odd and curious, suggesting that there was a bigger problem behind it than just another man.
The news source also said that Peterson attracted negative attention during the investigation through his behavior.
Drew Peterson was convicted of Savio’s murder and sentenced to 38 years in prison. Peterson has been held in the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC).
Now, the convict has been transferred to a holding facility in suburban Joliet; no reason has been given yet for the move.
An inmate of Drew Peterson’s, Antonio Smith, has since claimed that the convicted murderer admitted to Stacy’s murder during a private conversation.
While such conversation does not hold weight in a court, it would seem that Smith is not the only person who believes that Drew killed Stacy.
