Peterson Son 'Extremely Disappointed' In Verdict

Thomas Peterson took to Facebook to express his displeasure over his father being found guilty of murdering his mother.

Three hours after his father was convicted of killing his mother, wrote on his Facebook page that he was "extremely disappointed."

"During the past 5 years...I got to see full grown adults act like children, and now they are parading around my front door," Peterson wrote about 6 p.m. Thursday. Just before 3 p.m., the much-publicized murder trial of his father, , ended with a guilty verdict.

Thomas Peterson . He was the last defense witness called to the stand.


Thomas Peterson testified that he never suspected his father killed his mother, that Drew Peterson was "very, very shaken" after his third wife—and Thomas Peterson's mother— turned up drowned in her dry bathtub in March 2004, and that he'd "never seen anyone so sad" as his father in the wake of his mother's death.

Thomas Peterson sounded pretty sad himself in the wake of his father's murder conviction.

"Who do I have left?" Thomas Peterson wrote on his Facebook page.

According to his post, Thomas Peterson has returned to the Philadelphia area. He attends college at the University of Pennsylvania.

Thomas Peterson's Facebook post went on to say:

"Who do my siblings have left? Oh yeah...the pastor, the lawyer, my aunts, and all of my mom's friends who LISTENED to my mother's pleas and DIDN'T do anything about it. Now she is dead, and you went forth to break the Constitution to blame my dad. I'm sorry, but that doesn't seem very believable to me...but since the rest of the world thinks otherwise, this is your fault, you should have come forward earlier. Now, I have a broken family without a salary, and some woman who sees it important to bully me over the internet because of my Dad. I hope you are all happy."

When he's not at college, Thomas Peterson, his younger brother and two younger half-siblings live with his older half-brother Stephen Peterson.

moved into his father's house after he and his wife Teresa divorced. According to sources, he has taken care of his younger half-siblings for the three years and four months their father has been in the Will County jail.

Stephen Peterson is the son of Drew Peterson and his first wife, Carol Hamilton.

Stephen Peterson lost his job when he was fired from the Oak Brook Police Department in February 2011. Stephen Peterson had let Drew Peterson stash some guns at his North Aurora home before the Illinois State Police got around to searching his father's house in Bolingbrook.

Even though he's in jail—and now prison bound—Drew Peterson pulls in a pension of about $6,000 a month.

Wow, Volpe, is the male organ your idea of what makes a man? Well, I'm not a man, and I grew up with a father who was an abuser. So, take your trash talk, and your big ego, and stick it.

Watchful Eye , boohooh!!!!!
Jesus Verdin September 07, 2012 at 09:23 PM
do you think he cares about your opinion, haha this was posted on facebook for his friends and family not for some jerk
amanda September 07, 2012 at 09:27 PM
Yall need to grow up and leave the kids along. They are grieving they lost a mother now they lost their father. Leave them be
SSC September 07, 2012 at 09:34 PM
Obviously Tom is going to side with his dad, who wouldn't support their father? The poor family, the 2 kids in elementary school who won't know a mother and now won't ever have a dad. I do not claim to know if the conviction is right or wrong, but I wish people would think about the whole situation before celebrating the destruction of this family.
Deb September 07, 2012 at 09:49 PM
Very well said Watchful Eye! Can't believe that anyone could side with this arrogant lowlife. Drew Petersen got just what he deserved.
Pro Life Crusader + September 07, 2012 at 09:56 PM
Watchful eye I will not even stoop to your ignorance level and retort to your comment the way I really want to. You have no clue what Kathy told my wife and I about her family! Also you don't have a clue what I know about Tommy and Kris. Do you? I wonder what the F.B.I. found in Kathy's belongings regarding Tommy and Kris and who should take care of them in the event something happened to Kathy and Drew! Care to guess who's name was on the paper? So do some research before you spew diarrhea from your mouth.

I'm a little ashamed to admit to this, but watching Volpe d'ouchebag get all worked up on these blogs has become a guilty pleasure of mine; kinda sad to see the trial end in that aspect! Given how passionate he gets in discussing DP and how everyone is wrong and DP is always right, I think there needs to be an investigation into Volpe and all of his aliases....maybe he was an accessory to the crime. Bring him in for some intense questioning regarding Stacey. My gut tells me he knows something about her disappearance; he protests a bit too much whenever the discussion gets too real. I'm just sayin.... But seriously, leave the kids alone. People deal with trauma and grief in different ways and Thomas is dealing with it the way most 19 year olds would: he's venting on Facebook. May God bless and comfort the Peterson children now and in the years to come. In time, their hearts will soften and hopefully peace will find it's way into their lives.
Watchful Eye September 07, 2012 at 10:59 PM
Volpe, if you know so much and Kathleen Savio (Peterson) confided in you and your wife, then why is she dead, her husband, your buddy, having been convicted of murder? At one point, you came around here and said, while you were attending the wake for Kathleen, your wife wondered if Maniaci could have killed her, You read Tom Peterson's commentary. You claim to be in the inner-circle of the Peterson friends, why didn't you man-up and help her? You're one of the BB cops that worked with Peterson and could have. What, didn't you want to get involved, or were you another one those that was intimidated by that murderer? Did he scare you too? Or did he con you into thinking Kathleen was the troublemaker, not him? I guess so. You come here and claim to be so knowledgeable about the Kathleen and Drew. Are you proud of how you helped her? You keep reminding us here how much you know. You sure didn't know how to stand up to Drew though, did you? YOU let Kathleen down, if you claim to have been so intimately involved in their lives. No wonder no one here pays any attention to you. We can all see you're making yourself out to be more important than you are. Maybe you are one of the "adults" Tom Peterson is talking about who could have been instrumental in saving his mother from a horrible death. Tell us how you know so much more than the rest of us, then tell us why you didn't help Kathleen. Okay, big shot?

Watchful eye too bad you are a women!!
Watchful Eye September 07, 2012 at 11:07 PM
Tell us big shot John, the BB police guy who can't defend Drew enough or shut up long enough to admit his guilt, were you one of the officers who answered any of the 18 calls? Tell us, if you are so involved as you like to come here and shoot off your mouth about, if she confided in you that she was estranged from her family, did she confide in you that she was scared of Drew? Because, I find it laughable that you would post something that bizarre, but you've never fessed up to being one of the guys that enabled that mad murderer. Did you answer one of her calls and blow her off, like the rest of them did? You have to live with yourself, and judging by the way you come here and stick up for that lowlife garbage, it must be tearing you apart. How else can you justify trying to blame Kathleen's death on everyone but the man who killed her?
Watchful Eye September 07, 2012 at 11:20 PM
Too bad I'm a woman? Thank you. You just proved what kind of a "man" you really are. A violent character, I see.
Watchful Eye September 07, 2012 at 11:23 PM
I'm done here, John. You knew Kathleen. Kathleen is dead. She was murdered by your co-worker. Share with everyone how much you really know. Stick your foot in your big mouth some more. Nighty, night.
Watchful Eye September 07, 2012 at 11:25 PM
Yeah, I do enjoy seeing him wig out the way he does. Get him to tell you, Charles, how much inside information he has that the rest of us don't. But, remember, Kathleen is dead. Why is it that this insider couldn't help her if he's such a hot shot?
Watchful Eye September 07, 2012 at 11:26 PM
Or what? Are you threatening me?
Watchful Eye September 07, 2012 at 11:35 PM
Is that how you reacted when you answered Kathleen's calls, John?
Pro Life Crusader + September 08, 2012 at 12:00 AM
Watchful eye let's see! I never handled a call between Kathy and Drew! I stopped by Kathy's house several times in 2002/03 to see how she and the boys were doing. Told her advice several times who to call and where to go for help. Talked to her a few times when she worked at Red Lobster and gave her guidance and support . Also watchful eye, get your stupid facts right. Officers filed the necessary reports and had Supervisors respond to Drew and Kathys domestics. Once the reports are filed it was up to the Chief and his administration to handle Drew then. Do you even know how procedure works? Apparently not. As far as the vulgar comments, is it apparent to you the fake Volpe is leaving them. Why don't you flag them then. Still haven't answered as to who's names were on the papers in Kathy's belongings about Tommy and Kris that the F.B.I. found. Do you?
Stephanie Wilson September 08, 2012 at 12:47 AM
I think any man that would use the k$&@ word is no man what a shame. If you are a police officer you should hold yourself to a higher standard instead of using all kinds of vulgar words. These poor kids Re all going to suffer not just Drews and Kathleen's but Stacey's also. How foes anybody explain where Stacey is? We all know Drew got rid of her to so come on.
Pro Life Crusader + September 08, 2012 at 01:37 AM
Stephaine are you slow here. Fake Volpe is leaving the vulgar comments. Please learn the game the fake scum Volpe is playing. If you look a few of the fake comments were deleted by patch. So don't come here on the attack if you don't know what's going on!'
Please September 08, 2012 at 01:39 AM
You are amazingly weird too! Like very weird Like freakishly freaky.......I hope you don't have kids or are married. If so get mental treatment for everyones sake. Just sayin....
Volpe d'argento UNO September 08, 2012 at 01:42 AM
Stephanie. Is it that time of the month for you ? Pay attention , its the fake Volpe d'argento UNO leaving the vulgar comments.
John Morelli September 08, 2012 at 01:48 AM
Not only is he a police officer but he is a mentally ill police officer....Bolingbrook at its BEST
Partyof5 September 08, 2012 at 03:31 AM
Thomas Williams September 08, 2012 at 04:45 AM
How about the millions he stole with a fake will after he killed Kathleen. How about the 240K he gave his other criminal son after he disappeared Stacy. You need to stop blaming everyone else IT WAS DREW and no one else.
Thomas Williams September 08, 2012 at 04:51 AM
He will be losing the pension. when he went to Kathleen's house in uniform using a police car he was not on duty. That is a class 3 felony that he is going to be charged with. they aren't done with him yet.
Thomas Williams September 08, 2012 at 04:51 AM
Or a con like his father
Pro Life Crusader + September 09, 2012 at 01:59 PM
It will be the new norm and the law from now on in Illinois to convict anyone and everyone just on hearsay laws w/o any physical evidence. Great court systems we have.
RobynD323 September 09, 2012 at 07:22 PM
While I feel very sorry for the Peterson children. They're in this position because of their father's greed & love for money. It is not, the people who convicted his father, Drew. It is a jury of 12 who believed the evidence beyond a responsible doubt. No constitutions were changed to convict Drew either. Again, more poison Tom has been fed.. Tom is the typical child from a criminal domestic violence family. These children are often very angry and blame 'others' for their unhappiness. Never realizing it's the faulty abuser who's the culprit of their unhappiness. Years of therapy will help Tom. His father has poisoned his entire thought process, and he's high jacked Tom's innocence. In actuality Tom is as much a victim of his fathers dysfunction as his two dead wives were. He just doesn't realize it yet. Tom will one day understand, Drew deprived him of his mother's LOVE by murdering her. Something so precious. In addition, many people wish to love Tom (Kitty's family) but again, Tom is a typical child of CDV. His father has poisoned his mind towards those people who have never, ever, done anything but fight for justice for his Mom. Why would any "normal" child be so angry? Because children of CDV are the biggest victims of this epidemic against women. Sending you love & Light Tom. Love your Mother's family. They're not who Drew has said. It's not anyone's fault but your father's he's in PRISON for life now. Murder is wrong my dear.
Deb September 09, 2012 at 08:37 PM
Thank you RobynD323! Your comment is not only heart-felt & well written but oh so true. Thanks for making such an intelligent & well thought out comment. Here's hoping that Drew Petersen's children get the help they need. I'm so worried for them.
DIANE KAY November 06, 2012 at 07:22 PM
I hope Drew Peterson rots in jail for the rest of his psychopathic life. Award his pension to his children so that their guardian will be able to give them a decent life and supply the monetary things they will need. If we are all lucky-- Drew Peterson will drop dead in jail. But I hope that Bubba makes him his "girlfriend first."
