Think that will ever find your sister.
Illinois state police is so working hard and so mine were all working together and doing searches and -- there's no rush now because -- is convicted and he's never gonna be coming out.
And do you think that the fact that -- was convicted will cause more people to come forward.
Hopefully I urge them to come forward.
Because they have nothing to worry about now if you can harm them and there's also a reward out there.
How are -- -- children because Sandra -- do you know how they're doing.
I'm not sure through has denied mean visitation and so is Steven.
And the sad part about it is your sister Stacy his two children.
All lost their mother obviously and now their father's going to be imprisoned probably for the rest of -- life.
Where do you think these kids will end -- going.
I'm not sure.
I guess we just have to wait and see and hopefully.
There's some than that I can do to get some sort of visitation at least -- -- and see them how -- are they now focus on her.
Seven and nine.
So hard so hard -- -- -- you wrote the book.
Yeah -- it's -- afterward that trial every day I saw you there are op.
How does Stacy Peterson's case the -- that you wrote about compared to the evidence you're -- -- savvy of this case which led to a conviction.
This a lot more evidence in species cases -- -- who is direct evidence you have to repentance from Drew Stafford how more -- who says he held -- carry a blue barrel out of the house of blues stage his body was inside.
There's much you say much more phone triangulation showing where drew was or Tom Moore he was.
Bit normal body but that.
Doesn't mean you can have a prosecution.
Well and and -- -- full well known now that we've got to prosecutor who's you know will -- go to the mat on this stuff Candace Aiken.
-- -- -- -- Did you do you know did you you know Drew Peterson.
Yes what was your impression of the guy.
He was always nice to me -- it I always just treated him nice because he was somebody that -- -- and I wanted to honor term.
And I mean we never had any stats -- anything but as time went on did it seem that your niece was -- comfortable.
Yes tell us about that when I was there in October right before she disappeared.
She was very I could -- that -- very uncomfortable there is a lot of stress and the marriage and she.
-- a lot of anxiety.
Was -- -- statements that true Peterson made that I think you were ready to testify to in the Catholic savvy a murder case.
That the judge of course didn't allow you to testify to what what were those statements.
The statements where that.
She wouldn't we we're looking for they had came to California and they were looking for house and and just randomly he dissent that he could kill and make it look like an accident.
And -- states he said not with this ticket now.
Not with this -- you down.
Very interesting what did you think that that was bizarre at the very -- yeah that was pretty and you know I mean no one's ever said that.
Had any kind of conversation like that in front of me.
All right it could Sandra gonna go to you if it your sister's husband was going around saying to an -- that he doesn't see that often.
Are to his wife's aunt you know I think you'll make it look like an accident you were around Stacey.

Before she went missing.
-- is quite stressful for her.
She wasn't like there all issue basically won my support and being there with her throughout do.
The whole time through that weekend so we plan to see each other every day until Monday when she had the appointment scheduled to see an attorney.
And so she was planning to divorce Drew Peterson.
And did she ever tell you why.
Job in just his controlling us you know she couldn't have a life she.
She loved him dearly and she.
Prove it tried proving its -- but he just was jealous and obsessive and wouldn't let her have friends and it just to -- -- -- to patrol honor did you hear the testimony and I am quite sure did have Harry Smith the attorney that your sister co.
How old are on the way and Harry Smith said that that that night that Kathleen was murdered that he came home and you know -- he put a woman's clothes in the laundry I mean if she ever told you that.
Can't because center.
-- I lost to some news talk in my ear -- okay all right just haggard did your sister ever tell you.
That drew told her all that she found through the night of -- murder watching a woman's clothes.
