Neighbor Testifies At Peterson's Hearing


Bruce Zidarich, a former boyfriend of Stacy Peterson's sister, may have been the last person to talk to Stacy before she disappeared. He testified that Stacy told him she wanted out of her marriage so badly that she even floated the idea of having sex with another man in front of Drew so he would stop loving her and let her go.

He said after Stacy vanished, Drew told him she took $25,000 and went to Jamaica with another man.

Also testifying was Sharon Bychowski, who lives next door to Peterson and was a good friend of Stacy's. Bychowski told the judge that about a week before Stacy disappeared, she saw Stacy sitting out front of her house crying.

She said Stacy told her she wanted a divorce but "Drew wouldn't go, he wouldn't leave, she didn't love him anymore," adding “having sex with him made her skin crawl."

Bychowski said Stacy also told her "if I disappear, it's not an accident. He killed me."

Peterson's attorney Joel Brodsky suggested Bychowski made that quote up, saying it sounded strangely similar to what Peterson's third wife Kathleen Savio allegedly told her sister before she died. Peterson is now charged with her murder.

“What she did was take a clip from Kathy, about it being an accident, and tried to stick it into Stacy’s case,” Brodsky said.

Bychowski broke down crying as she testified about telling Stacy she should write her fears down somewhere. She sobbed uncontrollably telling the judge that Stacy responded: “It doesn't matter. I'm already dead. He's going to kill me."

“She was staged. It was prepped; it was rehearsed, I’m sure that the crying was part of that because to go from being calm and answering plain questions to hysterics, almost on cue, it’s kind of ridiculous," Brodksy said.

Bychowski also testified about gifts Stacy showed her, including a ring. Bychowski said Stacy told her Drew gave it to her thinking it would make her stay, but Stacy told her it wasn't going to work.
