GRETA VAN SUSTEREN:, "ON THE RECORD" HOST: Do Drew Peterson's teenage sons know something, and will they be called before the grand jury? The grand jury is investigating the bathtub death of Kathleen's wife — of Peterson's wife number three, Kathleen Savio, and the disappearance and potential homicide of Stacy Peterson, who is wife number four. Many wonder whether Drew Peterson's two teenage sons will be subpoenaed to testify in front of the grand jury. The two sons are Kathleen Savio's children, ages 13 and 14, and both adopted by Stacy.
And in other Peterson news tonight, police have just released a call log of 19 domestic calls to the Peterson residence. But our next guest says the police reports are not what they seem.
Joining us live is Sergeant Drew Peterson's friend, Steve Carcerano. Steve, good evening. Nice to see you back. And what you can tell me about these phone calls?
STEVE CARCERANO, FRIEND OF DREW PETERSON: As you could see, the 19 phone calls — I think you have a copy of it, I faxed it to you today — are not abusive type of calls that I think the public has the impression of. These are minor calls due to visitation, et cetera. And I just think that he — the public is thinking that they're much more than what they actually are.
VAN SUSTEREN:: All right. So maybe I should, you know, figure out a way to put them on our blog, you know, what you sent us, because that might, you know, help at least to explain that. Have you — do you still see Drew all the time?
CARCERANO: I haven't seen Drew in about four days.
VAN SUSTEREN:: When you last saw him, how was he doing?
CARCERANO: He was doing fine. He was, you know, obviously trying to stay out of the media. And he was doing fine, just with the kids.
VAN SUSTEREN:: Steve, one of the things that I remain immensely curious about is, apparently, he gave the Illinois State Police a timeline as to where he was, beginning sometime in the morning on October 28, leading into the time when Stacy was reported missing. Have you asked him where he was on October 28?
CARCERANO: I have never asked him that question. I have never asked him that question since it was on your show that one night.
VAN SUSTEREN:: Do you have any curiosity as to where he was?
CARCERANO: Yes, of course, I have curiosity. I have no problem asking that question. I'm sure that he would answer it for me, if I asked him.
VAN SUSTEREN:: Well, would do you that for us? Because, you know, if — you know, if there's a good explanation, you know, just like you come on here and tell us there's a good explanation for these phone calls and it's not quite as it may seem when it was reported — you know, it would probably help us, you know, if we had the explanation because then we'd back off. You know, we'd — you know — but we don't have that. You know, we're sort of left in a mystery. Can you understand that?
CARCERANO: I can totally understand it. Just like you said last night, though, he doesn't have to tell anybody. I can't, you know, force him to tell everybody the story. Will he tell me? Yes. Will I divulge what he tells me? That's another story.
VAN SUSTEREN:: All right. Well, it may be something that might be — do a good job of sort of — if he's sort of sick of us as the media, and I totally understand that because we've been — you know, we've been trying to get the information, is that if — you know, if we — if we get that information, you know, it might be that, you know, we back off and at least, you know, we can focus more on the search. So that might be a good thing.
By the way, have you seen — have you seen the boys, his teenage boys?
CARCERANO: I saw them the other day when I was there, and they were fine. They were doing fine.
VAN SUSTEREN:: And the two younger ones, as well?
CARCERANO: Just running around, having a good old time.
VAN SUSTEREN:: Do you — has anyone — have you heard anything about whether or not the two teenage sons, who were home on the 28th, the 13- year-old and 14-year-old — whether they're going to be subpoenaed from the grand jury? Have you heard anything about that?
CARCERANO: I actually talked to Drew about that, and I believe they already talked to a state mediator towards the beginning of the investigation. I believe the older one talked for about two-and-a-half hours, and the 13-year-old talked for about 35 minutes. But being subpoenaed to go in front of the grand jury, I don't believe that's going to happen.
VAN SUSTEREN:: Why do you say that?
CARCERANO: I — I talked to Drew about that today, and I guess they had a choice back then, and he thought it would be better to have them talk to a mediator that was appointed by the state.
VAN SUSTEREN:: But that — I mean, is that Drew's choice, or (INAUDIBLE) I mean, has the prosecutor said, I'm not going to ask the grand jury to issue the subpoena, or is that Drew's decision?
CARCERANO: I don't know the answer to that question.
VAN SUSTEREN:: All right. Well, Steve, if you can help us out and get that timeline because, you know — you know — and I'm going to see about putting this summary of the phone calls up because I'm trying to get it up, you know, in the — you know, in a fair way. If you can get us that timeline that he's given the Illinois State Police, that would be very helpful, and maybe we'll all back off a little bit. Steve, thank you. It's always nice to see you.
CARCERANO: OK — also...
VAN SUSTEREN:: Yes. Go ahead.
CARCERANO: Thank you. About the Thomas Brownley thing that came out in the media — and that's one of the reasons why I wanted to come on your show and talk about these 19 domestic calls because there's things like that now that have come out, and it's totally false again about him breaking this person's thumb. And that's one of the reasons why I wanted to come on your show and just set the record straight with the 19 domestic calls. Thank you very much.
VAN SUSTEREN:: I agree. And that's why, Steve, it's often, you know, very helpful for you to come on, and even if Drew would come on to clear these things up. Nobody has any interest in getting them wrong, so I appreciate it. Thank you.
CARCERANO: Thank you.
