Murder trial jurors says they wore color-coordinated clothes out of boredom
Among the many questions that arose during Drew Peterson’s murder trial, one of the least weighty but most perplexing was — what on earth were jurors trying to say by meticulously coordinating their clothes each day?
They wore all yellow, then all green, blue and black. They wore alternating red, white and blue once in a hint of the American flag. The display that caused the biggest stir was when all 16 wore team jerseys — mostly supporting the Chicago Bears and White Sox, although there was one for the Green Bay Packers.

“It was a way to pass the time,” explained Patricia Timke, an alternate juror, noting the group couldn’t talk about evidence during the five weeks of testimony. “We had long discussions on colors to wear each day. It took time to work out.”
