Convicted murderer Drew Peterson doesn't believe he'll make it out of jail alive.
Peterson's former lawyer Joel Brodsky shared portions of a letter a despondent Peterson wrote him earlier this year from his solitary cell at Menard Correctional Center in southern Illinois.
"Joel, did you ever feel that something was going to happen before it does? I feel I'm going to die in here. If the inmates don't get me I'm gonna be killed by the cruel guards," Peterson wrote in the letter.
Peterson also complained of living in a cell the size of a "broom closet," with "peeling paint and rusting fixtures."
"I have no TV or anything and I haven't been out since I got here," Peterson wrote. "The food is terrible and I'm in solitary confinement," he wrote.
The ex-Bolingbrook police officer was sentenced for murdering Kathleen Savio in 2004. He's a suspect in the 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.
Peterson was sentenced to 38 years in prison and his projected parole date is May 7, 2047, when he'd be 93.
