Drew Peterson's third wife was murdered and did not accidentally drown in the bathtub as originally thought, a pathologist says. Bruises on the body of Kathleen Savio suggest she was beaten to death in 2004, the Chicago Tribune reports. The autopsy took place after police named Peterson, a former Chicago cop, a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife.
"I don't think there's any possibility this was an accident, and I don't think there's any indication this was suicide," the pathologist said. Savio's family said she had feared for her life while living with Peterson, a sentiment echoed by Peterson's second wife in interviews this week. Meanwhile, Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy, has been missing for more than two weeks.
