I truly hope that this is true. I cannot stand to watch the arrogance and lack of caring showed by Drew Peterson. I hope this will prove to be the remain of his missing wife and Peterson get the death sentance. Your Comments? Remains Found on River Bank Near Blue Barrel Could Be Stacy Peterson's or Lisa Stebic's The discovery Wednesday of a decomposing woman's body near the Illinois home of accused murderer Drew Peterson has the potential to blow huge holes in his claim that wife Stacy Peterson simply ran off with another man. A body was found in a barrel on the banks of the Illinois River.As Peterson, a former police sergeant, sits in jail on charges he murdered his third wife, Kathleen Savio, investigators in Will County, Ill. -- about 20 miles from Peterson's home in Bollingbrook -- are working to identify remains found on the banks of the Des Plaines River. But Stacy Peterson wasn't the only local woman who disappeared in 2007. Some say the body could be that of Lisa Stebic, a mother from nearby Plainfield, Ill., who disappeared in April 2007. "My honest feeling is hope the body is ID'd if it was Lisa or Stacy," Stebic's cousin Melanie Greenburg said. "I hope one of our families gets closure from this." But the fact that the decomposing body was found less than a mile from a blue barrel could be significant, as Peterson's stepbrother told "Good Morning America" in March that he helped Peterson move a heavy blue barrel from the Petersons' home into their SUV shortly after Stacy Peterson disappeared. http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=7642347&page=1

That would be good for family to get closure and that someone will be held for it.

Oh wow. I had not heard about this new discovery. While sad, knowing some family will be getting answers; whether it be Lisa, Stacy, or someone else, is good news in a sad way.

i still havent heard anything of whether it was her or the other girl. have you heard anything yet? i do hope which ever one it is that the killer gets the worst punishment possible. Drew just kind of reminds me of the arrogance of OJ you just feel hes gotten away with everything way to long.

I hope that someone gets some closure. If it is her, I hope her family can have some closure. I feel for all the families involved, it has to be so hard to not know.

I hadn't heard the latest on this story until now. I hope when they ID this woman Who ever the family is,they start coming to closeure! If this women happens to be Drew Peterson's fourth wife Stacy,I hope the police charge him with Stacy's murder,too! Ever since this story broke I felt Drew Peterson had killed his wife Stacy and got rid of her boby so good,no wonder it wasn't found! If it is not Stacy's body I still hope they find stacy's boby someday!

I guess we will have to wait for the dna and dental records in order to know for sure. This arrogant boastard needs to be hung out to dry.

I certainly hope that it proves to be one of the two missing ladies, and not some third poor unfortunate victim in the water. Part of me relishes the thought that this might be Peterson's nail in the coffin.
