Two truckers have identified Drew Peterson as the man who they say asked them to deliver a package at 3:30am the morning after his wife, Stacy, disappeared, Illinois police said yesterday. The drivers say they refused, reports the Chicago Tribune, but the ex-police sergeant issued an angry denial to ABC News, calling the claim "totally fictitious."
The drivers say the man identified as Peterson and a companion asked them to take a package to an undisclosed location, where the two men would finish transporting it. Peterson continues to deny involvement, but the incident has offered hope to Stacy's family members eager for a breakthrough. "The fact that the police is releasing [this information] means they're getting close," said a family friend.
