[correction and update]
Social Service or Child Protective Services should make a visit to Drew Peterson’s house. Stacy’s children ages 2 & 4 have been without her for a year and now Peterson’s fiance, Christina Raines, 23, has moved in with her children ages 4 & 5. They reportedly met in 2003. They have been dating for four long months – but he frequents the restaurant she works at.
Peterson is alleging her fiance’s ex boyfriend “Mike” is stalking him – including at home.
The alleged stalker is NOT THE FATHER OF HER CHILDREN.
How much concern is Peterson showing for all four of those children if the stalker is truly stalking him at home? Especially if he is as jealous and abusive as Peterson claims.
Can’t someone intervene on behalf of the children? Someone has to stop this madness and keep those children safe.
Rob Stafford’s “A Day in the Life of Drew Peterson” just aired the 10 o’clock news. Peterson tried to portray himself as Mr Mom but the reality that came through – Stacy’s children are motherless.
ROB STAFFORD: The spokesman for the Will county states attorney told me today that one of the cases – either the murder of Kathleen Savio and the disappearance of Stacy Peterson will be resolved this year, sooner rather than later. The Grand Jury is still meeting.
Has to be the murder of Kathleen Savio. Then what happens to Stacy’s children during the trial and beyond?
UPDATED: Peterson’s fiance, Christina Raines’ uncle spoke yesterday with Chicago Breaking News’ ERICA SLIFE:
JOE RAINES: It’s unbelievable. I don’t get it, but what are you going do? She’s an adult.
It’s just crazy that she would make a decision of this magnitude knowing what’s out there.
Yes, but her children aren’t adults and are relying on her judgment and at the mercy of Drew Peterson’s sociopathy. Someone needs to drag her out of there. Her father has had an active role but she is 23.
The notion has Raines’ family members worried. Her father, Ernie Raines, filed several police reports with the Bolingbrook Police Department over the weekend requesting well-being checks on his daughter, and to also document that his daughter had moved in with Peterson, said spokesman Lt. Ken Teppel.
Just an observation. What type of home life did Peterson’s alleged fiance have that would lead to her have two children so young and find it ok – desirable even – to move in with someone who is her father’s age?
