CHICAGO – Former police officer Drew Peterson says he isn't getting a fair shake in the media or from people who were his friends before his 23-year-old wife disappeared.
Peterson's face recently appeared on a piñata at a prayer vigil held for Stacy Peterson, who was reported missing Oct. 29 after she failed to show up at a friend's house.
"It's like they had this vigil for Stacy, and the next thing you know there's a piñata with my face on it," Peterson told the Chicago Tribune. "All these policemen who were my friends, and I would have jumped in front of a bullet for, don't even talk to me."
Drew Peterson, a suspect in Stacy Peterson's disappearance, denies any involvement and claims that his wife ran off with another man.
Stacy Peterson's family and friends have repeatedly criticized Drew for not helping search for his missing wife.
"He's going about his daily life as best he can under siege from the media that's around his house, taking care of his kids," Joel Brodsky, Peterson's attorney, told FOX News on Thursday. "He's just doing the best he can under this spotlight that he's in."
Earlier this week, authorities executed search warrants to review a GPS system in Drew Peterson's sports utility vehicle and seek physical evidence. Officials served a warrant on Peterson Tuesday, asking for the seizure of items containing plastic shavings, blood, bodily fluids, fingernail scrapings, palm or fingerprints, chemicals that may alter body decomposition and other "biological material that may be evidence of the offense of first-degree murder."
Authorities initially seized iPods, computers, backpacks, 11 guns, a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix and a 2005 GMC Yukon Denali.
A Nov. 1 warrant called for "all GPS records, cellular service records, logging records or any other electronic records in the possession of OnStar Inc." from a 2005 GMC Yukon Denali driven by Drew Peterson.
The latest warrant requested objects of blue plastic, lead weights, plastic shavings and scuff marks, circular impressions or carpet indentations or other plastic or barrel-like object.
It also lists dirt, gravel, soil and other material that might be tested to determine a vehicle's presence at a certain location; also guns, ammunition, knives and ropes that may have been used as a weapon or restraint, according to the Tribune.
The warrant seeks object that "have any of the following on them: blood, hairs, fingernails, bodily fluids, body tissue, DNA, fingerprints, fingernail scrapings, palm prints, saliva, urine, feces or other biological material which may be evidence of the offense of first-degree murder."
Joel Brodsky, Peterson's attorney, said the first warrant allowed authorities to search the cars but not seize them. The Tuesday warrant corrected that error.
