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.

This is really a shame... Although I hope they find Stacy's body... it is a truely sad ending for such a pretty girl whose life ended before it could even begin. And this smug Idiot... He gets what he deserves in Prison... I have ZERO compassion to someone so hateful.



My thoughts are out to the family of Stacy... Although this would put an end to the questions it also puts an end to her...

It is a small gun club, heard it's been there 30 years. People just go there to skeet shoot. Think it is a private club, but people can bring friends. Only open one day a week, so empty the rest of the time. The property they are searching belongs to someone who lives behind the hunting club. It is a 150 acre farm. Belongs to a prominent businessman here in Peoria. He is not involved. It is a cattle, soybean farm. He gave them permission on Friday to start looking. They returned today.

Hunting Ground: a large piece of acreage usually owned by a group of men in partnership that is rich with game to hunt. It's sole purpose is for hunting, sometimes also partially farmed/planted with crops that the wild game like to eat. Most often(in the midwest)its for the purpose of hunting white tail deer.

Neighbor just said two large black suburbans with tinted windows just pulled out of the site. Don't know if that means anything. The tent is probably up because it has been raining on and off all day.

Thank you for the meaning of "HUNTING GROUND"
I'm a big city girl where we are not allowed for have guns of any kind or to hunt anything. There are no animals here to hunt.

Update: The dig is over for today and will likely not resume tomorrow, said Illinois State Police Sgt. Tom Burek. Burek declined to say whether anything was found.



He added that it's possible that they'd start digging again Monday.



The diggers had carved out a 10-foot-by-10 foot section in an area that was very difficult to navigate, Burek said. As of now they have let go the anthropologist they had brought in for assistance. The tip is "significant in the fact that we're here," he said.

FROM CHICAGO SUN TIMES WEBSITE:



TMZ.com was reporting that it came from another inmate who said Drew Peterson told the fellow inmate where he buried his fourth wife. But both police and Peterson’s attorney scoffed at that report.



“The tip did not come from an inmate at the jail,” said Will County Sheriff’s spokesman Pat Barry. “The people I've talked with have no knowledge of anything.”



“Drew couldn’t talk to somebody if he wanted to,” said his attorney, Joel Brodsky. “I heard it’s a friend of a friend of a friend — there’s nothing there. I think TMZ should stick to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.”

[“Drew couldn’t talk to somebody if he wanted to,” said his attorney, Joel Brodsky. “I heard it’s a friend of a friend of a friend — there’s nothing there. I think TMZ should stick to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.”]



Said by the equally smarmy lawyer of the smarmy client.

No just a minute TMZ!



Yesterday, Originally posted Jun 4th 2010 9:52 PM PDT by TMZ Staff, you said: "Authorities then put prongs in the soil and hit a mass below ground that could be the drum in question."



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



Now WTF!? Did they find a "mass" or not. If they found it/something yesterday, they wouldn't still be "searching", they'd be gathering evidence/digging! WTF!?!?

Douchebag, is that one word or two? Spell check says two.
Drew Peterson is a big, fat, incarcerated douche bag.
