Joel Brodsky media blitz goes on. He hasn’t been able to talk with Drew but he can talk with the media. He’s on the Today Show. He gives the same party line – Drew understands the seriousness of the charges, that’s what he does–he jokes, he is innocent, he doesn’t have to prove anything, weak circumstantial case, he can account for his whereabouts and the timeline is impossible.
And then he brings up the lie detector test again – the fact that Drew passed the relevant questions about Kathleen Savio. But any lawyer should know that partial evidence has no meaning. He wants Savio’s half to count – he can’t discount the fact that Peterson flunked 3/6 questions about Stacy – if she said she was going to leave him and her present whereabouts.
He better get a grip and stop mentioning the lie detector test. He comes off desperate and frightened and, frankly, unprepared.
I think the final straw for the Grand Jury was Drew making his teenage sons go on the Early Show and say what a great dad he is. It’s clear that wrongful death lawsuit was perfectly timed. It was meant to distract him and hope he said something…and that he did. He said he told Stacy’s children that she was on vacation and that she was never coming back. He didn’t realize it. Weird pause. And then the got angry at the end, which resulted in him forcing his kids to go on TV.
Justice might have been slow in coming but it will be full. Stacy will get her justice as well. There’s a moratorium on the death penalty in Illinois so that’s not on the table and he’s so old (55) there’s no reasonable way he can bargain down the time. And he might just end up in jail until his trial.
His children are the ones who are suffering and who will always suffer – especially when they realize that their dad took their mom away from them and then looked them in the eye and lied to them for years. And then there’s Drew’s oldest kids and Christina Raines’. Just sad and sick that one man can cause such grief and eternal brokenness.

Homemade video off the TV – but it shows how haltering Brodsky’s speech is when he lists he reasons why Drew is non-guilty and his desperateness about the lie detector test.
