Thank God Only Celebrities Get Away With Murder
Drew Peterson was married four times. The first two wives alleged
that he beat them, the third wife originally drowned in an inch of
water, and the fourth wife vanished into thin air.
According to Drew Peterson, it was all just a set of odd
coincidences. Thankfully, the state of Illinios didn’t see it that way
and invoked the Doctrine of Chances.
The Doctrine of Chances is rarely used in the court of law, but it
asks the simple question, “How can the same thing happen twice?” In the
case of Drew Peterson, if one wife accidentally dies, it’s probably not
likely that the next wife will suffer the same accidental fate.
And after exhuming the body of his thrid wife, Kathleen Savio, the
coroner confirmed what everyone suspected and overturned the initial
ruling and declared her death a homicide.
I don’t know, maybe Drew Peterson saw O.J. and Robert Blake’s trial
on Court TV and thought that he could not only get away but also cash
in on the media attention surrounding his wife’s disappearance. After
all, he did offer himself up to a radio station for a “Win A Date with
Drew Peterson Contest.”
I have to admit Drew, your plan almost worked but I guess you didn’t realize that only celebrities get off for murder.
