In what might be the mother of all jailhouse confessions, TMZ is reporting that Drew Peterson blabbed to a fellow inmate how he killed missing wife Stacy Peterson, and who his accomplice was. The inmate allegedly told cops, who tracked down the accomplice, who took them to private hunting grounds outside Peoria, where he said the body was buried in a metal drum. Cops stuck prongs in the ground, TMZ notes, and have found something that could be a metal drum. They're expected to begin digging this morning.
