Media Alert: Publicist Confirms Drew Peterson Took Lie Detector Test for Book

Glenn Selig says Drew Peterson agreed to take a polygraph as part of an investigative book on the disappearance of wife Stacy Peterson and the death of ex-wife Kathleen Savio. - September 24, 2008

(PRNewsChannel) / Tampa, Fla. and Chicago, Ill. / Drew Peterson's publicist released the following statement after receiving multiple inquiries to confirm a report that Drew Peterson has taken to a lie detector test as part of an upcoming book by an independent author:


"The media criticized Drew Peterson for refusing to take a lie detector test in connection with the disappearance of his fourth wife Stacy or the death of his third wife Kathleen.  Derek Armstrong, the author of Drew Peterson Exposed, insisted that Mr. Peterson take a polygraph examination before he would consider conducting an independent investigation of the Peterson cases.

"Mr. Peterson has long wanted an independent and unbiased investigation into the disappearance of Stacy and the death of Kathleen because he felt he has been given an unfair and slanted portrayal in the media.  He wanted the whole story told and a thorough examination of the evidence.  When various authors were talking with us about their interest in writing a book with Mr. Peterson's cooperation, Mr. Peterson was most encouraged with Mr. Armstrong because he is from Canada and therefore has not been tainted by the tabloid media hype.

"Against the advice of his criminal defense attorneys, Joel A. Brodsky and Andrew Abood, Mr. Peterson agreed to take a polygraph.  Mr. Brodsky, acting on Mr. Peterson's instruction, arranged for the test and selected a Chicago-area polygraph examiner with 34 years' of experience and past chairman of the Grievance Committee of the Illinois Polygraph Examiner's Assoc..  Mr. Peterson took the exam at Mr. Brodsky's office over the spring.   Mr. Armstrong did not pay for the polygraph to avoid any appearance of impropriety.   The polygraph examiner charged his standard fee of $500 per examination, and will not receive any further compensation.

"Since the test and results are part of Mr. Armstrong's investigative reporting effort, it would be unfair--indeed wrong--for us to reveal the results and our 'spin' on what they mean before he does.  Mr. Peterson, after all, took the exam at his urging.  Also, neither Mr. Peterson, nor his attorneys or publicist has seen the book, so we don't know how the polygraph results figure in Mr. Armstrong’s investigation.

"Mr. Peterson had no editorial control over Drew Peterson Exposed, and has not, and will not, receive any compensation for his cooperation with Mr. Armstrong. 

"As you know, Mr. Peterson has unwaveringly denied any involvement in the disappearance of his fourth wife Stacy or the death of his third wife Kathleen Savio.

"Although we understand the interest in what some might call this 'dramatic' development in the case, we would caution everyone to refrain from making any assumptions about the polygraph results. 

"We further ask that you respect Mr. Peterson's privacy and allow him to focus on being a father to his young children because he is not making any public comments at this time."

Media Note:  Drew Peterson, Joel Brodsky, Andrew Abood and Glenn Selig will not be available for any interviews on this subject for now.  This statement is all that's being said about the book at this time.
