Search For Stacy Peterson Called Off
It should not be a huge surprise to most folks that around 6pm, the forensic anthropologist working with State Police gave up his search.
Nothing was found during the day-long search.
A police source was asked if he was optimistic about the lead — which reportedly came from a prison inmate — the source said: “I’m not convinced yet, put it that way.”
Police were digging in an area close to the Kickapoo River outside of Peoria that was extremely muddy due to recent heavy rains.
Police had told the family that the tip was a good lead.
TMZ reported the tip came from another inmate, however that has been refuted by the Wills County Sheriff’s Department.
