Lisa Stebic


Lisa Stebic ~ Missing Since April 30, 2007

I didn’t remember hearing about her disappearance in 2007 but remember custody battles. When the body was found in the Des Plaines River recently, it was stated the remains could be Lisa Stebic or Stacy Peterson. Both women lived outside of Chicago, Stacy in Bolingbrook and Lisa in Plainfield. Both women are the same height and only a 20 pound difference in weight. Both deserve to come home.

Lisa Stebic, a 38 year old mother of 2, last seen by her husband, Craig, on April 30, 2007. Lisa worked at a local elementary school in the cafeteria. She had worked the last day seen and was home when her children got home from school. Craig was a former private investigator.

Lisa and Craig were in the process of divorcing but still living in the home together. On the day Lisa disappeared, she mailed a petition to her attorney seeking to have Craig removed from the home.

Craig filed for divorce in January 2007 and cited irrconciable differences. Lisa’s complaints against Craig were: “unnecessarily relentless, cruel, inconsiderate, domineering, and verbally abusive”.

It was reported that Lisa had a few dates with a divorced man in the weeks prior to her disappearance. It was not speculated she ran off with another man and left her children. Lisa’s family said she would never leave her children.

On the night Lisa disappeared, Craig was the last person to see Lisa. He had sent the kids to the local store to buy candy, leaving him alone in the house with Lisa. He stated he was working in their backyard. He said Lisa took her purse and her cell phone and left on foot. He later stated he thought Lisa was picked up for an exercise class or went to the gym. Her vehicle was still in the garage. Lisa’s cell phone, credit cards and bank account have not been used since her disappearance.

Blood was found on a tarp in Craig’s truck. He claims it was deer blood but 2 different law enforcement officers state the blood was Lisa’s. I found a Nancy Grace transcript where the blood was confirmed to be Lisa’s.

May 22, 2007: Craig was denied sole custody of Alexis (12) and Zachary (10).

October 20, 2007:Craig cut off all communication between the children and Lisa’s sisters. He had already barred her parents from the couple’s home and has not allowed his wife or their children to speak to them for the last two years. When they attended parties for extended family members, the children were not permitted to speak to their grandparents, who often were standing in the same room. No explanation was given. The children continue to live with Craig Stebic. I will update this story if I am able to find any more information concerning the custody issue.

Craig Stebic cooperated at the beginning of the investigation and turned over the family computer but he refused to submit to a polygraph test. His attorney told him it was an unscientific tool. Craig ordered his children not to speak with authorities about their mother. A few days after Craig was named person of interest in Lisa’s disappearance, he filed a motion to have the divorce proceedings dismissed.

If the blood was found in his truck, why hasn’t he been arrested? Finding blood is not necessarily a sign of death. If it had been a large quantity to suggest Lisa was deceased, it would possibily have been a different outcome. Also, it was not like in other cases, the smell of death. The grand jury failed to indict him during the 18 months in which they indicted Drew Peterson in the murder of his 3rd wife, Kathleen Savio. Prosecutors were forced to subpoena the children of Lisa because of Craig’s refusal to allow LE to question them. Craig brought the children to the Grand Jury hearing but was not allowed in the room at the time of questioning. Since the Grand Jury is sealed, it is unknown what the children were able to contribute to the investigation.

Here is another case of suspected controlling of a spouse. If Lisa were alive and just ran off as Craig stated, why did he file a motion to dismiss the divorce? As of this date, no charges have been filed against Craig and he continues to raise their children.

Illinois has two beautiful missing women who allegedly were married to controlling and domineering men. It must be very hard on each family awaiting the autopsy of the remains found so they can have closure. Unfortunately, only one will be able to have closure, at this time. I wish they could find both of them so that justice can be served.

Investigators continue to search Des Plaines River and continue to find more bones, one being a leg bone. This was just reported on the Nancy Grace Show.

    Lisa ran off with her boyfriends is what I read somewhere, that true?

    • The Will/Grundy Major Crimes Task Force, consisting of 36 local law enforcement agencies, will begin operating June 1. This task force consists of fifty-seven officers from departments large and small sharing resources when called to investigate. Of the cases they will be working, according to Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow, is the April 2007 disappearance and potential homicide of Plainfield’s Lisa Stebic. So, according to this major task force, Lisa Stebic is considered a potential homicide victim.

    michellefrommadison – It was mentioned that she had dated a man a few times but there was never anything about her running off with him. It was never suspected by anyone. She has not used her cell phone, credit cards or her bank account since disappearing.

    Drew Peterson’s one statement said that Stacy ran off with another man but LE has dismissed that too, I believe.

  3. naplesfl34102

    Update: The bones found in Des Plaines River are neither Lisa Stebic or Stacy Peterson. The remains are those of a male.

  4. michellefrommadison

    Who would have thought that the media and many blogs were all wrong again about that. Now, anyone that thought Drew Peterson was involved in that fiasco needs to just step aside and allow Justice to prevail. 🙂

  5. Here’s a little bit of gossip related to the Lisa Stebic case.
    In Chicago there was a long time, well respected television reporter named Amy Jacobsen. Amy worked for the Chicago NBC affiliate and was assigned to the Stebic case. Amy was also married with young children.
    Apparently Amy was getting chummy with Craig in the course of reporting the story about Lisa. One day, while preparing to take her children to the East Bank Club to go swimming, Amy received a call from either Craig or his sister inviting her to Craig and Lisa’s house for a BBQ and a swim in their pool. Amy accepted the invitation and went there with her children.
    Supposedly, neighbors had been seeing Amy at the house quite often and notified the other local Chicago news stations where Amy was seen on Craig’s deck, in a bikini, talking on her cell phone.
    The CBS affiliate got videotape of this and aired it as their top story. The next day Amy was fired. Amy claimed her motive was to gain Craig’s trust and a possible confession. Others felt her behavior was inappropriate and her firing was justified.
    It’s been about two years now and Amy is occasionally reading the news on a local radio show her husband has filed for divorce and she’s suing the CBS station for airing the video. I don’t know on what grounds.

    As the world turns….

    I was told by someone that followed that case that Drew’s wife was considered by some to be what some call a “slut”. Sounds about right for a wife to run off with a boyfriend(s).

    • I’m not sure what you’re getting at. Are you insinuating that Stacy Peterson (btw, this is the Lisa Stebic thread) abandoned her children, family and friends, without one word since, to be with a boyfriend and because she’s a “slut”?
      Just asking…

  7. michellefrommadison

    Actually, she did run off, according to the authorities at several points, and she left her kids to be with her boyfriend(s), which is hardly uncommon these days.

    • Okay Michelle, lets do it your way.
      Where exactly did the “authorities” get this so called information? From Drew?
      Are there missing person reports from the instances that she ran off with her boyfriend? Did Drew make police reports? Is this documented somewhere or did it come from her innocent, victim of circumstances, long suffering saint of a husband?
      Please provide your sources.

      • michellefrommadison

        The authorities got the information during their searches which is verifiable through the internet and from the F.O.A. (Freedon of Information Act) which can be filed by anyone. “From Drew?” No, from the disclosed evidence of his current case. Missing persons reports that she ran off with her boyfriend(s)…? Yes. Sources: stated above.

  8. I have searched and found nothing on Stacy having run off with a boyfriend other than statements made by Drew Peterson. In fact, what I’ve read is LE believes Stacy was abducted. Michelle, if you have documentation from Law Enforcement substantiating that Stacy ran off, please send it to me. I’d like to review it. Thank You.

    You are obviously not looking in the correct places Shadowingcrime. And, I have provided the links to them and you are welcome. Has Drew been released yet do you know? Was kind of busy and haven’t checked lately. Thanks for your support in the “girlfriend issue” since it is fact and does appear to be what happened…….. again. 🙂

  10. MichellefromMadison, I am trying to verify your facts, as I’d prefer to post facts than speculation. I will continue to search. Thank yo for your input

  11. michellefrommadison

    Great ShadowingCrime, glad to see you want to become educated. Now, verify away. Here’s a copy of a post I just made for someone seeking the same info. “Many of these facts are obtained two ways: through the use of the F.O.I.A. (Freedom of Information Act) DJ and the rest is obtained from secured sites within, but not openly available through the access of the internet. The easiest and simplest way I can describe that fruitful way to first to advise you to follow your employer’s guidelines, that’s crucial in this situation. Then, if allowed by your employer, access the secured-sites and you will need to enter in your vicinity numbers, your branch number, your precinct number, your badge number and your authorization codes in order to proceed. Once verified and approved, you will have tons, literally, of information at your disposal, although most secured sites prevent any copying and pasting or listing of the base-site information because it is all linked through categories as you already know. But, the information is available if you are willing to put forth the effort to verify. It becomes easier the more you access those sites, because your previous choices are always “highlighted” so you can speed through them much quicker when you return, so you don’t have to go through all the rigamarol you had to the first times you accessed these. I think the easiest way for me to describe these sites are that NASA has tons of sites available to access the detailed information about the shuttles, but you need the proper clearance and to follow specific procedures to really access them or to know what it is that is actually displayed. Many banks, the NCIC, and other financial institutions do the same. So, the crimes and the misconducts of Predator Grace are absolutely available, you just need some clearance to access the nitty-gritty since CNN spends untold amounts of money to shield the public from many of the crimes of this Predator that has helped to end the lives of victims of crimes in the past; verified and proven. Also, like I mentioned, I have never made up any lie about anyone, not even Nancy Grace. It is only those uninformed and ill-informed that would ever make that claim as you do. Visit those sites, and you can apologize later. Also, I do not hate her as you claim, she has never done anything to me, and as far as I life, I have a great and fantastic life, thank you very much.”

  12. Are we talking about Lisa Stebic running off with a boyfriend or Stacy Peterson?

  13. MichelleFromMadison, I do not know who you think I am, but there is obviously a mistake. I’ve made no statements about you or how you feel about anyone. This is a new blog site and a new screen name for me.

    I do not have clearance for secure website as you. I am not with any law enforcement or new agency. So I do not have access to the resources that you seem to have. It would be nice, but I am not in a position to get any security clearance through any worksite.

    I can only speak on the information I have access to. You information is most interesting but I am unable to verify it.

  14. michellefrommadison

    According to Drew, the one who ran away and is in hiding with her boyfriends and abandoned the kid(s). Isn’t the other one that couldn’t use the bathtub correctly?

    • Are you seriously defending this dirtbad, murderer! “one tht couldn’t use the bathtub correctly?” Please! That just makes you look really stupid! So is that what Drew has said, that Kathleen Savio couldn’t use the bathtub correctly? What kind of defense is that! A very weak one!

  15. michellefrommadison

    Well, S.C., there are over 1,500 people on those secured sites this second. And, I have seen not one person contest this verifiable information about Predator Grace, and some even suspect criminal charges coming against her soon.

  16. michellefrommadison, are you refrencing Lisa Stebic or Stacy Peterson?

  17. michellefrommadison

    In what regard Mrs Merrick?

  18. In your posts where you say “she” ran off with her “boyfriend(s)” and is a “slut”, are you referring to Lisa Stebic or Stacy Peterson?

  19. michellefrommadison

    Does it really matter since both of them got similar references like that.

  20. You know, after hearing your non-facts and semi incoherent ramblings I totally agree with you.
    Lisa Stebic, Stacy Peterson, Nancy Grace and every human or animal ever born with an X chromosome is nothing than a lying, evil slut. They and we all deserve to be murdered or locked up in jail or a mental hospital.
    These poor men are being abused and manipulated by us wily women. It sickens me!
    Thank you for enlightening us all.

    Can you say misogynist?

  21. naplesfl34102

    Neither Lisa or Stacy ran off with another man. Drew has always tried to say that she had so the focus would be taken off of him. The families of both women said they would never leave their children. I believe it was Stacy who took her children with her everywhere.

  22. naplesfl34102

    MrsMerrick – I read about the reporter who was swimming with Sebic. She lost her job over that one. She was trying to “get to know” Craig and get a story. She got one alright!

  23. Shadowing was wondering if Jacobsen and Craig Stebic were possibly dating. I don’t think so, but, there is basically no news regarding Lisa or Craig Stebic.
    As a matter of fact, the only time in recent memory that I can think of Lisa being mentioned was when the body was found in the river recently and the speculation was that it could’ve been Lisa or Stacy.
    It seems the story has just faded away.

  24. Mrs. Merrick, I found the same. Nothing new on Lisa Stebic other than when it was speculated the body recently found might be hers. I keep looking.

  25. Thank for by yourself, it was a end result of the discovery of a Terrific, since i was not wrong coming in direction of your site, since articles below unbelievably distinct, consequently i would like in the direction of thank by yourself for the reason that oneself require in direction of percentage for a ton of Those .

  26. Well we now know that Stacey Peterson did not run off with “another man” and I do not believe that to be the case of Lisa Stebic either. Her husband was some kind of former private investigator, so he knows a bit about hiding crime & probably about committing also. Lisa came up missing after he conveniently sent the kids to the store for candy or whatever. Her purse & its contents including credit cards or bank accounts have never been used since her disappearance, so why would she “take them with her”? We all know Lisa did not run off & leave her children. The authorities know who is responsible for her disappearance. They probably don’t have enough or the kind of evidence they want to make the charges solid to bring about a conviction. However, the long arm of the law reaches far. Someday the truth will be revealed, this is Spiritual Law. So. Mr Stebic enjoy the rest of the days that you have with your secrets. But remember, there is “nothing hidden that shall not be uncovered”. They have innocent people sitting in prison & on death row for a crime they did not commit, yet they have guilty people still walking around enjoying everyday life as if all is well. God sees all & knows all. I feel for her children who have had to grow up without their mother, under the thumb of a father who is responsible for her disappearance.
