Drew Peterson, anxiously awaiting starting his new job at the Cathouse (the Moonlight Bunny Ranch Brothel) has his plans foiled by the Sheriff’s office of Will County, Illinois who arrested and charged him with first-degree murder in the 2004 drowning death of Kathleen Savio his third wife. The ex-cop now wears a red jumpsuit, handcuffeds and had shackles around his legs.
Drew’s 4th wife, Stacy Peterson, disappeared 19 months ago and hasn’t been seen since.
The news was bittersweet for Stacy Peterson’s family, who continue to wait for news about her disappearance.
“We have anticipated this coming. We have dreamed about it. We have been patient over it,” family spokeswoman Pam Bosco told WLS. “Now that it’s here, it’s almost a little bit calm. We’re waiting for the storm to calm now. The calm before the storm.”
Dennis Hof runs the Moonlight Bunny Ranch brothel made famous by its HBO show “Cathouse,” said in a new interview with Derek Hartley and Romaine Patterson on Sirius XM’s OutQ radio that it was his offering drew a job running the Brothel that lead to the arrest of Peterson.
“Absolutely, there’s no question about it,” Dennis said. “There hasn’t been one bit of talk about arresting this guy and all of a sudden he’s coming to the Bunny Ranch, they grab him. They were afraid he was a flight risk and was not coming back.”
Peterson was arrested on Thursday and indicted for the murder of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Savio was found in a bathtub on March 1, 2004, and was initially ruled an accidental drowning. Stacy has been missing since October 2007.
“We would cancel the show before doing a stunt like this,” an HBO rep said in a statement to Access.
Hof told Derek and Romaine that the offer he made to former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.
He claims the ex-governor’s people turned down the offer thanks to Blagojevich’s legal situation, which is also keeping him off the reality show, NBC’s upcoming “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!”
