2022.01.28 16:22 Ok_Particular8737 A Case for Not Guilty, and Maybe Even the Owl Theory
I am obviously late to the game, but wanted to post my thoughts because this is an interesting and polarizing case. I tried to offer some evidence that was not well highlighted in the documentaries, so curious what people think.
The Problem for Everyone in the Case :
Deaver, the Prosecution, and The Facts that Ruin Their Case:
- No one (Prosecution or Defense) can fully explain all of the blood patterns and diverse injuries
- In defense of Deaver, he had to create a scenario in where the blood and injuries were possible, because it was so hard to explain how all this could happen observationally.
- The Contamination of the Scene:
- Key Fact: Deaver arrived at the house around 5 p.m. Sunday. This is somewhere between 14-16 hours after Kathleen Peterson died
- Before Deaver's Arrival, all this happened to the crime scene:
- Approximately ten police officers had been in and out of the house
- Paramedics Ron Paige and James Rose were the first persons to respond to Defendant's home, followed by a fire engine crew.
- Key Fact for Fall: Captain Paschal noted that Mrs. Peterson had a significant amount of blood on the bottom of her feet, consistent with her standing in blood at some point.
- Sergeant Borden, who arrived at the scene that morning, testified that the blood on the waist of Mrs. Peterson's sweat pants was consistent with her sitting up at some point after she began to bleed.
- Todd enters the house shortly after the first responders accompanied by Christina Tomasetti. Tomasetti does not testify in court, but does provide written statements fully corroborating Todd's accounts and providing him an alibi
- Other "civilians" also entered the house and went unescorted into the kitchen and patio area near where Mrs. Peterson had been found. The civilians are Todd's three friends Christina Tomasetti, Heather Whitson, and Ben Maynor. They had all been partying together.
- The scene is completely unsecured as admitted by officers. Not necessary to read, but some proof: Defendant (Mike) and Todd were allowed to handle Mrs. Peterson, and to move about the house and handle and move various items. For example, Todd Peterson removed a cordless telephone that was laying on the stairs near Mrs. Peterson's body.
- At 3:07PM, at least 12 hours post-mortem, Michael Peterson hugs his wife in front of everyone. Todd has to physically grab his father and separate him from Kathleen's body. Kathleen's body was still producing wet blood at this stage
- Dr. Snell, the medical examiner, arrived at the house at 7:40 a.m. Dr. Snell was told that the scene had been processed, and walked up the stairs, along with a technician and detective, to check for blood stains other than on the bottom set of steps, but did not find any further stains. Deaver, in the video we all saw, could only reproduce the single droplet of blood in a beating scenario inside Mike's short by standing on the 4th - 5th step and beating her. There is no evidence to support Mike went up the stairs
- By the time Dr. Snell arrived at the scene, someone had moved the blood saturated towels from under Mrs. Peterson's head to the stairs leading to the kitchen. She testified this could have deepened her lacerations
- Dr. Snell wrote in his report that "[i]t appears that she hit her head on the step above the corner and then hit the floor in the corner of the stairs" and that "[b]lood spatter appears to support the scenario." Note: Dr. Snell is not certified in blood spatter analysis, only understands it. Deaver, who arrives some 10 hours later, is the only one "certified" to do so. However, Dr. Snell is the ONLY trained expert that observes the scene within a few hours. This is notable because of the aforementioned contamination of the scene
- CONCLUSION: Todd's 3 drunk friends, Mike, the first responders, and 10 or so police officers, the medical examiner who thought the scene was processed, completely hurt the integrity of the crime scene. Dr. Snell initially believe spatter analysis was consistent with blows related to a fall. Dr. Snell changes this later when presented with Deaver's analysis
- Misc. Suspicions That Point to Michael
- Luminol Shows Footprints to Suspicious Areas:
- The luminol testing was done after the police had been in the house for 36 hours. Not only this, BUT Police, Todd, Mike, Todd's Friends, Medical Examiner, and "UNIDENTIFIED NEIGHBORS" were walking around the house
- No attempt was made to photograph the luminol
- No diagram was made of the location of the reactions
- George (investigator) explained that it was just "track over track" and that "I just couldn't distinguish it because there had been too much walking." . No blood was found in the sink in the laundry room, or in the washing machine nor on a mop and bucket that were examined.
- The laundry room (where footsteps were allegedly observed) also served as a storage room for soft drinks and wine. Mike was permitted by authorities and is testified as having gotten a Diet Coke
- Suspicious Blood Pattern inside Mike's Short: There are a number of ways a pattern could have occurred. One undeniable possibility is a beating. Another undeniable fact is that Deaver could only get this pattern while standing on the staircase, above Kathleen, with a weapon. This contradicts other theories including that he smashed her head against the stairs with no weapon. It is also not supported by footsteps, and there is no evidence of Mike's footprints were on the stairs. As far as testimonies and evidence go, Mike never went upstairs.
- Changing of Story: This is more opinion than facts: Mike apparently mentioned to someone (reportedly a "medic".) that he was simply turning off the pool lights. He was still in shock when the medics arrived, and the medics are not trained to take statements. A medic could have misconstrued what Mike was suggesting as it was almost 3AM and he may not expected that Mike was "hanging" outside that late. His story, however, was consistent once he started giving official statements. If someone has more info on his initial statement, that would be helpful
- He murdered her on staircase: Everything I have read is that 1) this would result in the exact brain damage she did not have 2) Mike did not have the splatter consistent with this on his person.
- FROM DEFENSE: "During cross-examination, the defense was for the first time provided a report revealing that [Deaver] used alternative light sources to examine Defendant's shirt and found no blood spatter."
- "2 Hours Lapsed. He hid the weapon" Approximately 30 officers, in five search teams, searched outside the house. A group of homicide investigators were assigned to search the interior of the house. No weapon was found, nor any indication that someone with blood on them left the property, walked out of the house, or down into the basement. This is preposterous that anyone thinks Mike could have left the house, after committing this bloody mess of a murder, without a trace of evidence to show this.
- But he did it in Germany too!: Please note these key facts:
- German doctors responded to the scene and determined that Mrs. Ratliff died of natural causes, which in turn caused her to fall. An army CID investigator came to the scene and found nothing inconsistent with the finding of a natural death.
- A subsequent autopsy confirmed that the death had been caused by intracranial bleeding, which in turn caused the fall.
- Dr. Barnes (examiner) explained that Mrs. Ratliff had von Willebrands disease, a bleeding disorder, and had been complaining of headaches. There were no signs of struggle at the scene, and German medical personnel found bloody spinal fluid consistent with intracranial bleeding, with subsequent scalp lacerations sustained during a fall on the stairs
- A slide of brain tissue was prepared, and eventually reviewed by the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. After reviewing the material provided, the Chief of the Division of Forensic Pathology agreed that the death was "sudden unexpected death due to spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage complicating von Willebrand's Disease.."
- Conclusion: Several professionals concluded that she had died due to natural causes. This is corroborated by sworn testimony that Elizabeth was complaining of severe headaches. Only on exhumation, where half of her brain remained, did North Carolina professionals decide decades later that it was blunt force trauma.
- The Judge later agrees this should not have been admissible to the trial.
- Bloody Footprint on Kathleen's Sweats: I can offer thoughts, but not facts.
- Kathleen was wearing baggy sweats and lying on the floor. Even if Mike beat her to death, he could have stepped on a folded piece of her sweats prior to taking his shoes off. When taken off Kathleen, it would look like it is on the back. This appears to have occurred prior to anyone arriving to the scene because Mike was not wearing these shoes upon arrival.
- The Blood was Dry
- Mike says it has been 45 minutes. Let's go ahead and say its been anywhere from 30 minutes to 60 minutes. Blood can dry this fast, but not pools of blood. This is where conflicting reports come in
- The paramedics and fire crew testified that the blood, including the blood on Mrs. Peterson, appeared to be dry. In reports written shortly after the events, which described the blood, the first responders did not indicate that the blood was dry.
- When Mrs. Peterson's body was subsequently moved, her clothes were saturated with blood that was still dripping per Medics. This implies that while blood may have dried ON her, there is still a lot of wet blood around the scene.
- I hypothesize that the paramedics thought they were responding to a DYING woman rather than a DEAD woman. I think the "blood is dry" became semantics that clearly blood was dry around the scene which was not what paramedics expected (per 911 calls) and signifies she was already dead upon arrival which is significant information for an EMT. Wet blood is still present in multiple reports
- Injury to Thyroid: According to Dr. Radisch, the injury to the thyroid was the result of direct trauma, such as in a case of attempted strangulation. However, none of the other indicia of strangulation, such as petechia or internal bruising and hemorrhaging, were present. Dr Radisch agreed that well respected pathologists would never find evidence of strangulation solely on the basis of this injury.
- Still, this is certainly favorable evidence for the Guilty crowd, but not damning because of the lack of other signs of strangulation.
- She only had "trace" amount of Valium. She has between 5 - 15 milligrams in her system. My research suggests this would be between 1 - 3 doses while drinking 2 - 4 servings of alcohol. I will let the reader decide on its significant, but this is clearly not trace.
- Any Others? Curious if I Missed Some Key Arguments for Guilty?
- THE OWL THEORY
- Thesis: The Owl Theory has several merits, although I am personally a skeptic. The Defense and Prosecution are having a difficult time 1) explaining the blood spatter (both existing patterns and lack thereof), 2) how she got the odd mix of injuries 3) if he murdered her, with what?
- I point you to Mike's lawyer, David Rudolph, website for a baseline of circumstantial evidence that supports this theory: https://davidsrudolf.com/thestaircase/the-owl-theory/
- From documents: Paramedics Ron Paige and James Rose were the first persons to respond to Defendant's home, followed by a fire engine crew. The front door was open, and there were drops of blood on the walkway leading to the house, and some smeared blood on the door. Rose testified that it is not uncommon for people who call 911 to be anxious about when help will arrive, and to walk out to meet the paramedics as they arrive. As far as I can see, Mike Peterson did not recall and never corroborated opening the door in any timeline, statement, or recollection
- So why is the front door very intriguing?
- The door has to be open for the Owl Theory (or an intruder)
- The odd shape of the lacerations caused a lot of issues for prosecution. The Owl Marks could have been notable but not deep. If so, when she did fall as she panicked, the lacerations from the fall could have been influenced by existing wounds. This could, of course, also be true if Mike killed her with a prong-shaped murder weapon. Although no such weapon was found
- Conclusion: I just can't fathom why the door is open except that Kathleen running from something, or Mike going out to see if paramedics were there. Since Mike doesn't ever suggest he did this, I don't see how this is not significant. Any thoughts here?
Finally, one thought for innocent (rather than not guilty). Why would Mike beat Kathleen bad enough to injure her, but not bad enough to stop her from sitting up, standing up, and then falling again? We have strong evidence that she at least did do that. Wouldn't Mike be concerned about Todd coming home or her waking up and leaving? Also, what was he doing in the interim period before she got up?
I am happy to outline the evidence for Mike being guilty that is hard to explain away, and is not talked about in the documentaries much. That said, it is almost all circumstantial.

2022.01.28 16:22 alolan_vulpix_kinnie Drafting a food/cooking mechanic for my game, looking for feedback.
I'm trying to draft a food and cooking mechanic for my West Marches game, can I get a reality check?
In town, players will be able to have meals cooked for them that provide the potential to gain powerful buffs for their next outing.
Meals consist of two ingredients, a primary and a secondary. Each ingredient consists of a trigger and an effect. Some example effects might be "Your AC is increased by 1." or "You may add 1d4 to damage rolls you make." or "You have the Interception Fighting Style" to and some example triggers might be "until the end of your next turn, after you regain hit points." or "while you're Poisoned." or "Whenever you're underwater."
Choosing a meal would be a matter of choosing a primary and secondary ingredient and sticking their effect and trigger ,respectively, together into a unique buff that lasts until the next meal players eat in town (or, in the case of especially powerful effects, last until they're activated x number of times). Players are also encouraged, though not required, to come up with a name for their recipe for a bit of worldbuilding flair. (Basilisk Egg + Glittercheese = Craggy Omelette, anyone?)
The town would start with only a couple of ingredients in its kitchen, but sidequests to uncover or secure new, more powerful foods gives an unfathomable amount of potential adventure hooks.
A big part of my campaign-to-be is researching foes and planning ahead, and I believe this adds an interesting layer of strategy and an incentive for the party to plan ahead and eat appropriately for the challenges they're intending on facing.
One thing I'm a bit afraid of an unintentional "staple food" rising to the top and the party just ordering that in every situation, but one potential workaround I can think of having a random ingredient marked as the "ingredient of the day" that changes from time to time and that imparts a special effect independent of its regular effects, like an additional +1 AC or resistance to a certain damage type or whatever, or Spices that can only be applied to certain types of ingredients (Eggs, Vegetables, Meats, ect.) and have a similar effect?
Am I crazy or does this sound good?

2022.01.28 16:22 sulovimileo How do you prefer spending your holidays?
I noticed that I prefer spending my free time (e.g. holidays) mostly doing pretty much nothing.
I might clean the place or force myself to do some things I didn't find time for during the busy times, or draw, but 'naturally' I'm prone to doing nothing.
By 'nothing' I mean I would eat, spend time online, just sit thinking about whatever, maybe go out in the park, listen to some music I can't afford to listen to during my 'normal' non-holiday life as it's too stimulating for me.
Imo, normally I am very hardworking and diligent, I like to get things done even though they I am easily drained, but on holidays I'm just existing.
Sometimes I feel guilty because other people seem to be doing things on holidays and I've never been like this.
Do you notice something like this about yourself?
