Father of Drew Peterson Love Interest Concerned Over Letter

Posted:

Drew Peterson’s love letters from jail are raising concerns for the father of another woman who Peterson has professed his love for.

That man, whose daughter was Peterson’s one-time fiancée, is sharing more jail house letters that he himself received from the accused wife killer.

Ernie Raines reached out to FOX Chicago News after seeing the story aired earlier this month about Drew Peterson's pen pal lover.

Raines shares that woman's concerns that Peterson may not be innocent of the death or disappearance of two wives as he claims.

The letters Raines has received have him worried what might happen to his daughter if Peterson walks.

Peterson said in a handwritten letter to Raines:

“I really love your daughter very much, and I would have been a good caring husband to her.”

In these letters, the accused killer pledged his love for Raines' 26-year-old daughter,
Christina.

Peterson went on in the letter to say, “I never intended to fall in love with Chrissy, but the more time I spent with her, I did.”

Chrissy, a mother of two, was living with and engaged to Peterson two years ago, around the time he was arrested for the murder of his third wife, and all the while suspected in the disappearance of his fourth wife.

“Like I told her,” Raines said, “You're alive now, but being with him for while, you might not be.”

Peterson tried to convince Raines he had good intentions, writing: "If I do get to marry Chrissy, I promise to always treat her like a princess."

Raines doesn't believe a word of it.

“He's a rat on two legs that's what he is,” Raines said, “And he has no morals.”

One of Peterson’s attorneys said Raines is just letting his imagination and paranoia run away with him.

But Joel Brodsky did confirm Peterson has had an on-and-off relationship with Chrissy, which she continued even after his murder arrest.

Chrissy's attorney denied a request for an interview, and would not show us any of her letters from Peterson.

Raines said he wrote Peterson with a stern warning.

“I told him, I hope you rot in hell and get a good rest, because you're going to need it,” Raines said. “I told him stay away from my daughter.”
