Heard of Drew Peterson? He’s the 53 year old retired Bolingbrook, IL, police sargent who’s 23 year old wife, Stacy, went missing on Oct 28. Well, he lives close to me.
Drew Peterson has been a laughable, self-centered suspect from the beginning. He’s entertained and appalled me with his American flag scarf over his face, multiple interviews on the Today show, interviews with Dr. Phil and now, on his own website. www.DefendDrew.com was set up by Drew Peterson and his attorney to help with defense costs.
Now, the DefendDrew.com website is either down or their server has been overwhelmed by traffic. They said they got over 1 million hits yesterday. It’s contents are pretty consistent with everything he’s said or done over the past month. One photo of Drew and Stacy and then 6 Paypal “Donate Now” buttons at the bottom with amounts from $5 to $250. If 0.1% of the alleged 2 million visitors to his website donated $5 each, then he would get $10K. I can’t see more than a fraction of a percent of the people donating anything.
Update: The lawyer closed the site after just 36 hours stating: 1. they “achieved what they wanted” and 2. it was a lightning bolt attracting too much attention. It’s a marketers dream! Too much traffic. Let’s write this recipe down: 1. kill 3rd wife, 2. kill 4th wife, 3. wear American flag scarf over face, … Launch hugely popular website!
DefendDrew.com shows “closed”. No HTML, just the word closed. What’s really weird is that the site is hosted in Hong Kong. Who in the world hosts their site in Hong Kong, the land of expensive real estate?
