Furthermore, it wasn’t going to work.” She said Peterson drove Stacy’s body around more than two hours away to a spot known distinctly to him.
Media reports at the time said Raines affirmed before a Will County amazing jury, however, she was not called as an observer in the Savio murder preliminary. “I’m not satisfactory on precisely what was advised to the fabulous jury,” “Fellow prisoner Secrets” maker and field chief Allison Willoughby told the Tribune. “I do realize that around then she was coming from a position of what she accepted to be valid. Over the long run, I accept possibly she’s framed new feelings and viewpoints looking into it and discovered new facts through those reflections.”
