BOLINGBROOK, Ill., Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Police appear no closer now to solving the disappearance of 23-year-old Stacy Peterson of Bolingbrook, Ill., than when she vanished a year ago, CNN reports.

After reviewing evidence gathered by Illinois and federal authorities, CNN says her husband, retired police sergeant Drew Peterson, 54, remains a suspect. But the celebrated case -- the subject of books and intense cable television news coverage -- hasn't progressed.

Drew Peterson said that last Oct. 28 he awoke at his home to find his wife gone, saying he later received a phone call from her telling him she was leaving him for another man. Police confirmed there was some activity on Stacy Peterson's cell phone at the time, CNN reported.

But, police say, Stacy Peterson had confided to friends and her sister in the days preceding her disappearance that she was afraid of her husband and wanted to leave him.

"If anything happens to me, he killed me. It wasn't an accident," Stacy's sister quoted her as saying, CNN reported.
