50 People in 50 days: Stacy Peterson's disappearance remains a mystery

Editor's note: Nancy Grace's new show on HLN, "Nancy Grace: America's Missing," is dedicated to finding 50 people in 50 days. As part of the effort, which relies heavily on audience participation, CNN.com's news blog This Just In will feature the stories of the missing.

This is the 43rd case, and it was shown Wednesday at 9 p.m. on HLN.

Not long after 23-year-old Stacy Peterson disappeared in October 2007, the search became overshadowed by suspicions against her husband, Drew Peterson.

Stacy Peterson was the former officer's fourth wife. They began living together in Bolingbrook, Illinois, while he was going through a contentious divorce from his previous wife, Kathleen Savio. She was later found dead in a bathtub in 2004.

Police have investigated the sites of several remains for Stacy Peterson near the couple's home without success.

Meanwhile, Stacy Peterson's disappearance prompted authorities to reopen the case into Kathleen Savio's death, resulting in murder charges against Drew Peterson in her death. He is awaiting trial, while the families of the two victims await answers and justice.

Watch Nancy Grace Monday through Sunday starting at 8 p.m. ET on HLN. For the latest from Nancy Grace click here.

      Teresa, could you PLEASE use some more punctuation? Like some periods, or commas or something? Your post is VERY hard to read and understand as it just rambles on for a paragraph. with only one period and one comma. And you might want to do some spell check also. And WHAT is 'coral punishment'? Something to do with the ocean maybe? Do you mean 'capital' ie death penalty?

      Possibly meant "corporal" punishment? And yea, what Sherri said. I just kept having images of them beating Peterson over the head with a piece of coral for punishment.

    No argument that these women are sad victims of a monster. HE WAS A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER. I have met many officers and One judge and many government officials WHO DO NOT DESERVE TO HAVE THE AUTHORITY THEY POSSESS! The majority of my sad discoveries are in UTAH. A cult is a cult and why this place is filled with drew petersens is the birds of a feather syndrom. They may have political advantage here but PLEASE NOT WASHINGTON TOO!!!!

      There is no such word as irregardless. I don't blame you for this grammatical error, I blame the lousy educational system this country has. As for poor Teresa, when you want to be taken seriously, please take the time to type it in proper english. To do what you did was just lazy.

    Dear 'meee', I'm sorry the story of a missing woman who was likely killed at the hands of her husband is 'boring' to you. God forbid you ever have to live through a nightmare like this with any of your loved ones.

    Ms. Grace, I thank you for still remembering my friend, even after all of this time. You've always been such a strong voice in the search for Stacy & justice for Kathleen. Thank you & God bless you.

    Did Drew Peterson take his airplane up the night Stacy Peterson disappeared? The airport which houses his plane would have that record.

    Nancy gets on my last nerve, and I no longer watch her show. I do not like the way she talks to the lawyers on her show, she asked them to "weigh in", but if they do not say what she wants to hear then she starts making fun of them with this stupid "2nd verse same as the first", etc. She even told them to 'kill his mike' on one guy because he was proving her wrong. UGH find somehting more important to do with your time.
