Tom Peterson, the son of Drew Peterson, issued a statement on his Facebook page following his father's guilty verdict Thursday.
Drew Peterson was found guilty of first degree murder in the death of his third wife Kathleen Savio. Savio is Tom's mother. Tom testified in his father's defense during the trial.
The statement reads:
“To say the least...I'm 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. Who do I have left? 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.”
