Murder charges in Manistee man’s 1995 disappearance

Manistee – — Two northern Michigan men have been charged with murder in the disappearance of another man 19 years ago.

It’s the second time charges have been filed against Pete Peterson. The first case was dropped in 2012 by the Manistee County prosecutor before an important court hearing.

The victim is Vincent Adamczak, a 41-year-old from Wellston. The attorney general’s office says he was last seen in 1995 but wasn’t reported missing until 2002.

The state says Peterson and Robert Knauss are expected to appear in court Wednesday on first-degree murder charges. It wasn’t immediately known if they have lawyers.

The attorney general’s office took over the case last spring.

In 2011, Rosemary Skrzycki pleaded no contest to being an accessory after murder and agreed to cooperate.
