Drew Peterson’s adult son says he and his four siblings know their dad’s innocent of murder, the Chicago Tribune reports. “All of the children of Drew Peterson fully support their father and know that he is innocent of the charges against him,” Stephen Peterson said today in a statement. “We know him better than anyone else in the world and we know he is not guilty.”

“My younger brothers and sister, Chris, Tom, Anthony and Lacy, are staying with me,” the statement, released by Drew Peterson’s public-relations advisers, continued. “We miss our dad and are praying for his release every day.” (More Drew Peterson stories.)
