OUTSIDE CHICAGO -- Former federal prisoner Jonathan Lee Riches has sued Bill Belichick, George W. Bush, Steve Jobs and Perez Hilton, and now he's filed a motion in the Drew Peterson case claiming he was the convicted wife-killer's lover.
"Drew Peterson and I were in a sexual relationship in the 1990's and Drew forced me to commit identity theft to finance his sexual lifestyle," Riches wrote to the court in a "motion for the right to be heard under the victims rights act."
Riches claims he used a stolen credit card to "buy Drew Peterson a sex outfit from adam & eve of officer friendly and Drew forced me to wear it for him while we watched the 1980's police academy series and Drew used to call me hightower and Drew and I went to dance against my will in will county at the blue oyster bar and we did karaoke with tom cruise before he was a top gun pilot and Drew used to chase me in my neighborhood as the dukes of hazzard and boss hog was sold to muslims under drews direct orders."
In his letter to the court, Riches claims his alias is the name of alleged Aurora, Colo., movie theater murderer James Eagan Holmes.
Riches does quite a bit of name-dropping in his Drew letter, claiming connections to Rod Blagojevich, the actual James Eagan Holmes, the Masons, President Obama, Sirhan Sirhan, Morgan Freeman, Jerry Sandusky, O.J. Simpson, Hurricane Katrina, Jimmy Hoffa and Rihanna.
Riches, 35, was released from federal prison on April 30. He did nearly eight years for wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and aiding and abetting. He was convicted in a federal court in Texas.
According to his letter to the court and his Facebook page, Riches now lives in West Chester, Penn.
