I think the comments here prove that 99% of the people who are utterly convinced he killed his wife are people who just don't like his mannerisms. He comes across as detached and above it all and a bit of an intellectual showoff and that clearly grates on people. But think about it: he was in jail for eight years and his mannerisms never changed, even when all hope appeared to be gone. No one in his family, not even his mortal enemy sisters-in-law, have ever suggested that his mannerisms changed after Kathleen's death. If anything, they've suggested that he must be brilliant at hiding his true nature because he behaves the same now as he did before. Don't you think his kids would have gotten weirded out if their dad suddenly started putting on some kind of stilted charade? Face it, this is the way the guy has been his whole life; it's not an act. The reason his kids and friends don't see through his odd behavior is because it isn't odd to them, and being quirky and detached and obnoxious doesn't mean he's a murderer.

His wife is dead, and yet he still manages to make it about himself. Guilty. I do not believe in coincidences. Both Elizabeth and Kathleen found dead at the bottom of the stairs, Peterson being the last to see either of them. Nah. Even with the Netflix series being completely biased and one sided, I never for one second believed that he was innocent.

After I finished watching the Netflix series I believed Michael Peterson was innocent, but having done some further reading I realise a lot of evidence was left out. I also think both Michael and Todd were lying. What I can't work out is what the motive was. If it was Kathleen's life insurance policy then pretty much all of that would've been spent on his legal defence (and not all of it went to him anyway). I can't believe money was the sole motive. So what was it? I'm also intrigued that David Rudolf still maintains Michael's innocence. As a lawyer he would not need to risk his reputation by explicitly stating such a belief - he must have a reason to do so, whatever it might be.

Ags Connolly how did michael even fund all that? The chuckling and laughing all the time with him was disrespectful and the constant homo sexual innuendos was inappropriate to say the least considering

He claims that he was outside on December 9 by the pool. Did anybody look at the temperature? It was in the 40s. Who sits out by the pool for hours Until 2:40 AM right! Not even remotely believable. I think he pulled her down the stairs he didn’t need a weapon his hands were the weapon! Watch Netflix where he’s playing with the kids. At one point he shakes the kids legs pretty darn hard.

I would not have found him guilty as no direct evidence, was his son in the house? Why is he not a suspect? The Owl theory is credible.
kimrecreant 7 months ago
I expected he was innocent when I started watching The Staircase, until I heard the 911 call. Is she conscious? What? That what? said it all. He'd rehearsed the call and didn't expect that question. Then lying to his own defence team about being bisexual - watch the way he did it when they told him about Brad's statement. He's guilty all right.

If I came inside to find my wife in that much blood, with 7 bone-deep lacerations in her skull, I’d be like “fall down the stairs my ass- find the person who did this cuz clearly someone was here”. But no, to him this was so clearly a “fall down the stairs” that any other possibility was out of the question? Please, that alone is enough for me to believe he did it. Nobody sees that much blood and immediately assumes it was an “accident”. Come on. Anyone who thinks this guy is innocent is either trolling you or doesn’t know all the facts.

Lupe Melendez yeah, you should find the video that shows the Italian speech detective. She analyzes his guilt just by the words he chooses and not the tone of his voice. She says he wanted to show she was still breathing by calling and reporting that so they wouldn’t know she had died hours ago. He’s batshit crazy this guy. And he’s disgusting. Every mannerism while he is talking is lascivious and greedy once you read some of his emails. He is always putting on a show 24/7.

Mark Rota 8 months ago
An Italian lady who does statement analysis came up with an explanation why there was little or no cast off blood in the area surrounding the staircase. It was because there was no weapon. Michael Peterson bludgeoned his wife by holding her in his bare hands and smashing her head against the staircase steps and wall baseboards. He hit her against these items hard enough to create the cuts on her head but not hard enough to crack or crush her skull.
Russell Speak 9 days ago
I agree. you don't look around for a weapon when caught up in the moment, you use the enviroment. He bashed her head to make the injuries look like a fall down the stairs. He's a fiction writer, he'd know the medical examiner would be looking closely at the injuries. But he wasn't smart enough to stop the spatter going up his shorts.
FantasyPNTM 24 days ago
If he bashed her with his own hands he’d be bruised, and there would be spatter on his shirt. There was nothing on his short. If he bashed her against the walls, the walls would’ve been damaged.
jjoeyj83 1 month ago
Mark Rota what an expert in the medical profession he must be. To bash her head exactly hard enough to cut it and kill her without any trauma at all besides the cuts. No skull fractures. No brain damage. All by feel? What a legend he is. You realize how stupid that sounds, right?
Mark Rota 7 months ago
Confessions are always welcome! The evidence really doesn't point to an outside attack. Yes a drop of blood was found near the home entrance, but all of the rest of the blood was confined to the lower end of the staircase. You're right, she must of lived for quite a while until he finally called 911. The blood on the staircase was apparently quite dry by the time paramedics arrived. This all points to a spontaneous rage type murder. Blood was found on the bottom of her shoes. This evidence suggests he attacked her twice. After the first attack she got up and stepped in her own blood, then seeing she was still alive he attacked her again.
Cat S. 7 months ago
Mark, Wouldn't it be the best if he just signed in as some woman on YouTube and told the truth? Like, oh.perhaps he grabbed a forked garden tool and hit her as she was walking in the house from behind. Just a guess. a theory, really. Then she started running for the stairwell to get away and maybe perhaps he hit her a few more times till she went down and then he tried to choke her and I don't know maybe after that he staged the scene while she was laying there dying for 2 hours. again it's just a guess. ;^)

SerenaLoveL, He paid his lawyer with her 401K $387,000 he pulled out and then he made his own parents give him money over and over again and his brother gave him three hundred thousand and his exwife Patty gave him $, then he tried to get Caitlin's money from her the 1.4 million life insurance and they went to court and she won because he changed the paperwork to his name but Kathleen never signed it. He'll never be able to fully pay his lawyer or payback anyone that lent him hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Cat S. 7 months ago
SerenaLoveL, If it were your Mom that was laying at the bottom of the stairs after taking care of your whole family and this guy taking advantage of her and cheating on her the whole time you might feel differently about what you might think is a rush to judgement. You wouldn't let anyone get away with doing that to your Mom.

Fay Kitnightly 8 months ago
SerenaLoveL Agreed. There are experts who have testified on both sides, coming to completely different conclusions. Of course, lawyers hope to find experts who support their side, BUT the experts cannot lie on the stand (they'd be at major risk of losing their license, not a risk that anyone but a minute percentage take). It's clear that we simply don't have the evidence to prove anything either way.

Sociopathic laden Peterson utilizes denial and rationalizations to cope with the reality that he took his wife's life in a very brutal fashion. His kids finally wised up and moved across the United States from him.

He would not have been so accepting were he not guilty. Besides which he had loads of time to write in prison so it was no punishment. This was no Netflix movie with details omitted. This was a real murder and you are listening to a glib-tongued psychopath.

dmichael100 8 months ago
I have noticed a common response of accused persons who are most likely guilty. They say I didn't do ANYTHING - using the most broad-non/specific word possible. Here Peterson also says EVERYTHING the prosecutor said was wrong. Of course, neither of those can be true. Peterson did SOMETHINGS (whether legal or illegal) and EVERYTHING the prosecutor (or anyone else) says is not false- even if his theory of the case does not confrom to reality. Later Peterson does say I did not hurt Kathleen which is more specific but those I have seen interviewed who are obviously innocent most often are more specific I did not kill her - or at least they don't use the I didn't do ANYTHING phrase- which sounds much like a child caught with his hand in the cookie jar. I think the ANYTHING stands for anything I wasn' justified in doing in the accused's mind.

The genuine tears he sheds at the end of the interview are a direct contrast to the ‘grief’ he displayed on the 911 call or whenever he tried to squeeze tears out while talking about his wife.

an owl killed her, they even found owl feathers in her hair. the person who did the autopsy on elizabeth was clearly biased, the doctor in germany who responded to the accident and who obviously had a neutral point of view ruled that it was a brain hemorrhage. i trust that way more than i trust the person who did the autopsy and declared homocidal assault. it does look bad but he didn't do it. the gashes on her head look suspicious but they proved that it wasn't a fire poker and furthermore there was no backsplash of blood on the ceiling that would indicate a beating motion. all these things prove he didn't do it in my opinion. he was just one very unlucky dude.and they used his bisexuality against him. fucking southern homophobes. gay people will always be treated like shit and more suspiciously. fuck that. and the fact that you think he looks creepy or looks like a liar doesn't make him a liar. not everybody can be genuine and have it come across. have any of you told the truth and you weren't believed? i sure have.it's not that hard to demonize somebody and make it seem like everything they say must be a lie. your bias is thinking for you.
jjoeyj83 1 month ago
Ferlynn my gosh. At least admit that your opinion (albeit biased) is completely uninformed. You say that someone can have their head beat against stairs with no skull fracture. That may be true, but no trauma at all to the Brain? Nope. Not even a plausibility. To sustain that many blows to the head, with no signs of head trauma at all aside from the lacerations themselves, it’s not scientifically possible. You’re entitled to your own opinion. But id at least attempt to base it on facts if I were you.
Julie Om 3 months ago
Emily Sikora bs sorry but owls dont behave like that, even if they did owls are light so wouldnt have the strength, they could only fly to attack something if they have the space too speed up- not in a staircase -and she wouldv been screaming- yet the dogs didnt bark? No way
Ferlynn 7 months ago
Rachel Lefebvre There are plenty of people who have had their head beaten against something and not fractured a skull. That’s not at all unusual. It’s likely more common than dying from bleeding out after falling down a few stairs.

LisaDawnn 7 months ago
I absolutely can't stand the way he speaks. His inflections go up a pitch at the end of his sentences. It's as if he's unsure of what he's saying so he changes his cadence to make it more believable. There's also this blanket of denial wrapped around him (and the girls too). He is extremely disingenuous and loquacious. That man harbors many many many secrets. From possibly fathering Margaret to suspicious deaths (Liz & George Ratliff and Kathleen ) to secretive sexual escapades and everything in between. He was already called out on not having a war injury like he wanted everyone to believe so we already know he's a masterful liar. He also never adopted those girls (another misnomer to make him look better)

No worse feeling than watching them leave for someone else knowing they are not looking back even though they acted like they were so invested. They'll put on a great act and have you believing them until they leave and never think twice.
Lynn Parker 8 months ago
LisaDawnn He is a STORYTELLER. As he talks he doesn't seem to hone in on any one point. His story is like a tree that continuously branches out and you cannot get a clear answer from him. I hate to say it but it's almost like Kathleen doesn't exist to him. He just doesn't talk about what is going on like I would expect one too. Notice how he talks about different people worrying about HIM? Narcissistic. My ex was a con man. Able to move from one stage of life. And from one woman to another effortlessly as if I or the other women didn't exist. Because once he decided he was through with that part of his life, he was. His mind went forward, no looking back in remorse or guilt( he stole and took from many) not much of a conscience, he could never understand why I was so upset that years of my life was wasted on a con man and I had issues getting over the betrayal. Normal people do struggle with recovering from being used and betrayed. Psychopaths or Con artists do not. Michael Peterson's way of speaking is to continuously misdirect the conversation from the intended audience and at the same time to try and convince whomever is listening that he is being genuine. I believe he is guilty of murdering at least one woman, Kathleen. I'm not sure if he got the idea to kill her from the woman in Germany's fall or not. A lot of storytellers get their ideas from elsewhere. I believe he killed Kathleen.

Kimberlee Foster Her Blood Alcohol level was.07 Thats is not even close to being impaired. If they had consumed 2 bottles which he states in the 1st episode. They both would have been hammered. Why would you let your wife walk in to the house by herself from the pool. Plus why would they be at the pool in dead winter in sweats and flipflops.

LisaDawnn Thankyou. Your comment was so spot on. I get quit wound up when people comment without having fully watched and dug deep into the back ground of this manipulative story teller. I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but to me, this man is so transparent. He holds many secrets inside , but the older he gets the more afraid he should become, of what is waiting for him. His pathetic rambling will not help him then.

There is something totally OFF about this guy. So MUCH was left out of the documentary that explains a MOTIVE AND MEANS. He was broke, she had the money, his two sons were thousands in credit card debt she refused to settle, finally Michael called his EX and begged her to mortgage her house and settle their debts. The one son hated Kathleen and REFUSED to talk to police. He eventually spent 4 years in Federal pen for making a pipe bomb and planting it at Duke Un. (some deal about his ID) another patholgist says Kathleen also had trauma to her throat where she had been choked, and likely her killer OR killers repeatedly banged her head against wooden stairs creating lacerations. His footprint in blood was found on back of her pants, at some point she stood up and slipped on blood before being finished off. THE ONLY person with income was Kathleen $145,500 salary ,he did not have much in assets. The house was in bad repair, the fence around pool was broken and house was not being maintained. IMO he killed in a rage or his son did and they colluded to cover up. His son I think it was Todd was THERE when police arrived. The ONLY reason Petersen is not still in prison is because the MORONIC FBI agent Deaver perjured himself and totally screwed up the evidence ad he had on at least 35 other cases. More than one person walks free because Deaver lied about evidence and some were set free or new trials granted as with Michael Petersen. The guy is CREEPY!! Sociopaths and psychopaths and narcissists can lie and act and people believe them. Because of DEAVER and mistakes made in investigation of original crime -- Petetson lives on.

CD Projekt This was in 'Written in Blood'. I personally haven't vetted author, Diane Fanning so I am assuming her facts were checked out. According to her, George Ratliff died in his sleep at the tender age of 34 while in Grenada. Nothing to do with combat or any training accident. His autopsy ruled his death as 'undetermined'. His wife, Liz, died 2 years later (found on the staircase in Germany) I just found it very strange how Michael Peterson is in contact with George's brother Tom who appears to be gay. Is there a connection? Me-thinks MP might be a serial killer.
