Saturday, September 8, Neil Schori discusses his role in the trial of Drew Peterson on
Justice with Judge Jeanine
After almost five years of guarding his testimony, Pastor Neil Schori finally got the chance to tell a jury about his conversation with missing Stacy Peterson which helped the jury return a guilty verdict in the trial of Drew Peterson, charged with 1st degree murder in the bathtub death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in 2004.
Schori repeatedly turned down recent interview requests to preserve any breach of integrity in his testimony before the trial, and it seems it was a smart move as the guilty verdict was read today, September 6, 2012, and justice was served for Kathleen Savio. The jury requested readings of two key witness testimonies, that of Neil Schori and divorce attorney, Harry Smith, before concluding their deliberations and finding Peterson guilty of murder in the first degree.
Justice with Judge Jeanine host, Jeanine Pirro, is a former Westchester District Attorney who successfully prosecuted many murder cases before joining Fox News Channel in 2006.
In 1978, Pirro started the first domestic violence unit in a prosecutor’s office in the nation. Additionally, in 1997, she was appointed by then-Governor George Pataki to chair the New York State Commission on Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board, whose research helped pass increased protection for domestic violence victims.
Pastor of Naperville Christian Church, Neil Schori has been active in promoting the church’s role of assisting victims of intimate partner violence for the last several years.
In 2008 Neil Schori and Susan Murphy-Milano met in Naperville Christian Church, the church attended by Stacy Peterson before she went missing. At that meeting a unique new tool was created for victims of abuse, like Stacy and Kathleen before her, the Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit©. Murphy-Milano subsequently wrote the book, Time’s Up: A Guide on How to Safely Leave an Abusive Relationship with explicit instructions and blank forms for victims and advocates to use to create individualized safety planning, documenting the abuse in the form of witnessed, notarized and video taped testimony should she/he go missing or be incapacitated.
Had Stacy and Kathleen created an EAA, Drew Peterson would have been arrested and charged much earlier, saving Illinois taxpayers millions of dollars in investigatory funds. The Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit© (iEAA), developed by Wetstone Technologies, is currently available as an app from the Apple App Store or iTunes, and soon will be available for the Android market. There are also opportunities to be involved with victim assistance at the website Document the Abuse. Com, as well as detailed information on the EAA.
