'World's Most Litigious Man' Files in Peterson Case, Says He's Drew's Lover

A Pennsylvania man famous for filing bizarre lawsuits is now part of the Drew Peterson case.

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.

The Guinness Book of World Records planned to honor Riches as the World's Most Litigious Man in 2009, according to an ABC News story. Riches responded by suing.

Hey Mr. Concerned (NL), I am not sure why you are being so mean to Mr, Hosey. He does an amazing job covering the Drew Peterson story and believe it or not but this case has gotten National Coverage since Drew was charged with the murder of his third wife Kathleen Savio and is the only suspect in the disappearace of hos 4th wife Stacy. I agree that this is a goofy story but IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT DREW PETERSON, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. If you are not interested in the story, then don't read it. Just don't see any reason to bash Joe for doing his job. He is a very well respected reporter and goes over and above what it takes to get us all the details of whatever he is reporting on.

Bratski12 - Chester If you don't like my comments you don't have to read them. Last time I looked I still had the right to the freedom of speech. We are nailed in the media every day for not preforming 100% even when we have given all there is to give. I'm not shedding any tears over this article just stating my point of view - just as you are too.
