Cops have taped off a section on private hunting ground in Peoria, IL. It appears officials have set up a tent inside the restricted area.

As we previously reported, cops received a tip that Peterson and an accomplice buried his fourth wife Stacy inside of a metal drum on the hunting grounds.

UPDATE: Authorities called off the search for the day at around 6:00 PM local time.

Hey sc1432: This is Drew, not Scott. He's in jail for killing Lacey Peterson awaiting the death penalty.

they only put up a tent when they find something so the news people cant see from the air and to preserve the evidence. They have something!

We live near this area. From what I am told it is a very isolated, single road back to it. Someone would have to know the area, it would not be found accidentally. The fact that someone led them to that location means they knew where it is. It is not just off the side of the road. It is a narrow, gravel road. The informant must have know this area. I live close by and never knew it was there. I hope they finally found her, for the sake of her family.

Great job TMZ!
As far as the death penalty for Peterson, There is a only a moratorium on the death penalty in Illinois. It has not been abolished. Peterson could be sentenced to death. Whether or not it would ever happen would depend on what happens in the legislature.



With Van der ****, Peru only allows the death penalty in a few cir***stances. None would apply to him. He will go to prison.

WTG TMZ!! Harvey you are letting your respectable news underpants show again! LOL! Keep it up! I'd rather hear you put your investigative chops into something like this as opposed to LiLo, ANY DAY!



You have my attention now.



The tent: They would have put that up right away. They are treating it as a crime scene to protect any forensic evidence in the chance she IS there. It would be stupid and slip shod to take two shovels and just start heavin' away, just to have it blow up on them in a court room. She is dead. The point now is to prosecute the s*** bag who killed her. They are going to need every last piece of evidence they can collect. The utmost of care needs to be taken. My personal feeling is in total agreement, yes they've likely found something, and its likely Stacy, god rest her soul.

They just had a press conference in Peoria. Fox chicago carried it live. They are searching a 10' area and say it was a very reliable source, but won't elaborate on who it came from.
