(Newser) – After repeatedly refusing requests from the family of his missing wife that he submit to a polygraph test, suspect Drew Peterson is now requesting to do so on national television. Representatives for the former Chicago-area policeman—whose wife, Stacy, has been missing since October and is presumed dead—have been in contact with producers from Moment of Truth.

Drew Peterson insists Stacy—his fourth wife—simply ran off with another man, Fox News reports. Peterson's third wife also died under mysterious circumstances, found dead in a bathtub in 2004. The death was recently reclassified as "homicide staged to look like an accident" after authorities exhumed Kathleen Savio's body for another look. (Read more Stacy Peterson stories.)
