Drew Peterson was found guilty in the murder of his fourth wife, Kathleen Savio. Her body was found in a waterless bathtub in 2004. The 40-year-old's death was originally ruled an accidental drowning, but after Peterson's much-younger fourth wife Stacy Peterson vanished in 2007, Savio's body was exhumed, her death investigation re-opened and her death determined to be a homicide.

Peterson now faces a maximum 60-year prison term when sentenced in Kathleen Savio's death on Nov. 26.

Tom Peterson's Facebook post reads:

"To say the least...I'm extremely disappointed. During the past 5 years...I got to see full grown adults act like children, and now they are parading around my front door. Who do I have left? Who do my siblings have left? Oh yeah...the pastor, the lawyer, my aunts, and all of my mom's friends who LISTENED to my mother's pleas and DIDN'T do anything about it. Now she is dead, and you went forth to break the Constitution to blame my dad. I'm sorry, but that doesn't seem very believable to me...but since the rest of the world thinks otherwise, this is your fault, you should have come forward earlier. Now, I have a broken family without a salary, and some woman who sees it important to bully me over the internet because of my Dad. I hope you are all happy."
