Drew Peterson's Wife -- The Search Scene

6/5/2010 11:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained photos of the scene where authorities are searching for the remains of Drew Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.

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.

Per the Peoria Journal Star, the cops may be back on Monday AM... weather in the area today has been very stormy and WET.

update:Drew Peterson’s attorney, Joel Brodsky, called the most recent search “patently ridiculous.”

I'm sure TMZ just forgot to mention that.

It's not like they would be biased against Drew.

So, if the informant took cops to the site & they connected with something that could have been a metal drum, why is this taking so long to recover that object?

Everything is still taped off and locked down, so they aren't done looking. We just had a tornado come through here. If they did not have everything secured that will be a problem. Huge rains and an actual tornado on the ground about 10 miles away. I am Chicago person located to rural America, so I didn't know about a hunting club either. They do deer hunt there also, the other writer was correct. No one here really knows the story, because we are 3 hours south and they don't cover much Chicago news. Even landowner did not know the story until we showed him on the internet. We were living in Chicago when this happened. So we know what a big deal it is. I just hope they find her for her family's sake. This is so sad. I just can't imagine he would talk and I would think they would have found something by now.

They're not going to find anything.

I don't think they will find anything either, but this area is so hidden that whoever gave the location would have to know the area. It seems too specific to be nothing. Not many people know the road is there. It's the only thing that makes me think it could be possible. The informant had to know how to get back there.

They are announcing flash flooding because of these storms. Kickapoo Creek is right where they are looking. That probably isn't good. I hope they found enough today, because it may have been washed away. Mr. Peterson gets lucky again?

I heard that Peterson is completely isolated from other inmates and therefore could not have communicated with the other inmate.

the guy that leaked info to the police lives on west james road in peoria. a week ago, he was arrested for beating his ex girlfriend and her current boyfriend in a chicago house. in an attempt to get off of those charges, he told cops he had info on the drew peterson case and that is how they came to this place for the search.

Hunting ground around Dunlap Illinois? Jim Thome and Tim McGraw are rumored to have land they use only to hunt on in that area of Central Illinois.
