Just before her death Kathleen -- -- warns that if she turns up dead Drew Peterson is the killer.
For years there's been a battle in the courts over -- those statements should be allowed into evidence.
Alternately the courts decide there admissible.
When I sat down with Joel Brodsky -- attorney I asked him how he thought her statements will affect his case.
-- is such devastating -- -- powerful evidence.
As -- can't beat Dallas powerful as.
It's absolutely it's it's probably it's certainly a problem and the goods right now because the courts have said we're gonna let this -- -- -- -- ball back and forth.
This is not efforts -- well certainly it we'd much rather not have this evidence this you want on evidence these these statements and now it is the statements and I've seen them and obviously they've been under -- -- very nobody has not connect with the case -- CNET.
They're not as devastating as people let -- believe they are.
And -- certainly you know there's no -- out now.
He did it in those statements why was Kathleen forgive him.
I don't know if she was really afraid of him.
Did she make up those letters and statements that she made yet he was a letter writer and complain she would -- got a bad meal and -- Restaurant she would write a letter to the head of the chain.
If she felt that does she had been wrongfully denied engine insurance claim she would write a letter to the -- of insurance and to the head of the insurance company does -- have selfish.
Doctors actually testified.
And she was on a number of medications.
Including anti depressants.
And I think her neurologist at testified.
That she had he had treated her for being -- dizziness.
I think he called vertical.
You explain the fact that your client apparently called.
The mother of -- Children Kathleen -- -- bitch and that he should have had a cremate how do you think a jury will respond to that.
Well the first I have to believe it and then if he's.
The murderer he's -- an all that it was a murder and instead of paying they have the body buried.
He would have paid to have the body cream and it was his choice and he was -- navy -- he had to face on the facts that I wanted to see that then you know then you have to plot that this criminal mastermind theory kind of -- -- the -- -- because then you're gonna see such a criminal mastermind.
That he was able to enter a house without leaving Trace that it was able to commit a murder.
Without leaving any any evidence of doing it -- -- that pulling pathologist and investigators.
And that he was able to.
Get away with it for so many years and then he did everything -- put the cover his tracks and all of a sudden he forgot both conceal the most important thing about it.
-- was Drew Peterson ever charged with assaulting.
Kathleen -- you -- on number.
What the police were called to that residents many times.
There I think there were eighteen calls I remember correctly but most of those calls and really look at them are he's bringing it that hit late -- -- from the off from -- he's twenty minutes late.
You know love mine very miners up only a couple of those calls had to do with anything that where's -- -- -- -- -- jealous person.
Certainly it has one -- -- that -- testified.
And other witnesses and who get these states also testified that the behavior.
That's only one classifies as having it kills straight yes was true interest is divorcing states there was no divorce pending.
And I mean I know -- yet they hits they had sought marriage counseling with this pastor schori.
So if he's seeking marriage counseling.
There is I mean obviously there were issues but in on -- if you're one of the -- you don't -- marriage counseling.
Does true thing.
That Stacy is dead or alive now.
He believes that she is still alive that she's made a new life for herself.
That does she knows that if she came.
That their life would be over because not only a because -- of media the media publicity that would tractor.
And that she doesn't want -- like that she's made herself to be upset.
You'll for a change of venue to have this case tried some more questions and has yet cracked well I don't know that we might need it changes -- line.
Well depends on that your children you believe that you can get a fair test I mean there's a possibility.
Well even in this area.
Well I I'm hopeful that we'll be able to find twelve jurors.
Will be able to do that do the job and all the rules and decide this case on the evidence doesn't matter.
What they've heard in the media you think he'll testify.
Well that's obvious option I mean that's something that one you never really -- -- in -- the state.
The rest its case and then you have to make that decision yet so you've got this fifteen year old who's married four times one wife is dead.
The others missing and hasn't showed up in years do you really think that all this is just a coincidence.
-- this isn't the issue.
The question is.
Is -- evidence that he ever did anything.
Wrong that he had any involvement with either KFC's death.
Or course bases disappearance.
But why would -- -- predicted -- -- Why which you've reached out one force if she were afraid of him she's leaving him.
Well that's a speculation she's not a -- -- look at.
-- -- obviously believe.
That it would be -- -- benefit in the proper distribution.
Who paid through as bad as possible that make him seem like all horrible.
Threatening person you know that that that would gain her more sympathy more favor.
And and benefit her in the property distribution was gonna happen and obviously also she was obviously -- true -- -- left her for a moment but so it's just a lucky guy to wells is out you -- unlucky.
-- your wife dies an element disappears I would hope that he thinks he's unlocking quite suppose that is but it doesn't mean that -- and that he did anything wrong.
