(Newser) – One year after being found guilty for the murder of his third wife, Drew Peterson's letters from prison reveal his true fears about a place he's called home since he was sentenced. Peterson's former attorney, Joel Brodsky, revealed the letters exclusively to WFLD in Chicago. In them, Peterson writes: "I feel I'm going to die in here. If the inmates don't get me I'm gonna be killed by the cruel guards. … Prison is all the nightmarish things that one would think. … I'm in a cell the size of a broom closet, peeling paint, rusting fixtures, I have no TV or anything and I haven't been out since I got here."
