(Newser) – Suburban Chicago neighbors of the former cop suspected in the mysterious disappearance of his wife Stacy Peterson received chilling notes in their mailboxes yesterday saying that the young mom is in a graveyard. One neighbor also found dozens of photos of grave sites scattered in her yard, reports the Chicago Tribune.

"Creepy. Oh my God, creepy," said one neighbor. She also discovered a Christmas stocking with a copy of the National Enquirer taped to it hanging from her mailbox and spray-painted with Stacy's name. State police are investigating. Husband Drew Peterson is suspected in Stacy's disappearance two months ago and in the death of a former wife.
