Does Drew Peterson Have a 'Friend' in Sneed?

The county jail has Sun-Times columnist Michele "Michael" Sneed down as a friend of accused wife-killer Drew Peterson, but what does the future hold for them?

Back in June, when attorney accompanied columnist Michele "Michael" Sneed to the Will County Adult Detention Facility for a visit with the accused wife-killer, jail records listed the Sun-Times scribe as one of Peterson's "friends."

Now, a mere three months later, it looks like Peterson's going to find out if he walks free or he's prison bound for what will surely be the rest of his life.

So in the event Peterson's sprung and skates on the murder rap, will he and Sneed continue their friendship? How about if he's convicted and goes to the joint? Can he count on Sneed to be a prison pen pal?

Unfortunately, we may never know.

We called Sneed a couple times to ask, but have yet to hear back from her.

It looks like we'll just have to wait and see what happens after the verdict, which may come as early as Wednesday.

Until then, sit tight and keep an eye—or an ear—out for what Sneed is hearing.

whichever way the jury decides, I am just glad that I won't have to look at his smug, smirking, self righteous ugly face any more.

Sneed's only interest in Peterson is in order to get a good story. She's only using him & Brodsky to get ahead in her job, as any journalist would. Peterson's only friend is Brodsky.

A friend in Sneed, is a friend indeed!

It sells papers and that's what Sneed is interested in. I may even pick up a Sun Times after the conventions are over!!! If I do it will be just to read Sneed. I never thought much about it, but, why isn't the family there??? That does not look good for Drew even though there may be a great reason.
