    You can truly tell that you care about this by the little gleam in your eyes. It's almost like an undiscovered fire opens and burns with anticipation. You can also tell in how you talk. You talk very openly, bubbly, and just overall invested in the story. .•♫•Believe in the unbelievable•♫•.-ℏᾰ!ℓḙʏ Իḙḙṧḙ

    Why does everybody think that the other lady that died in Germany was his ex wife
    It wasn’t
    It was his two adopted daughters mom they were never married
    He got granted the custody of them

    I think that the owl theory is correct however that doesn’t explain the death of the 2 sisters birth mother even though the wounds on the head were very very similar

    I've never heard of this case. I don't know what to think. I don't think he's innocent. If his other wife died in the same way, it definitely points to murder. I don't think it's a coincidence. I think what happened with Kathleen is Michael stabbed her and then put her on the stairs to make it look like she fell on the stairs. I don't think you can get lacerations like that on your head just from falling on the stairs and having a big pool of blood around you. It doesn't make any sense. I definitely think he killed her but I don't really know about the motive. Maybe it could be what she found out about but it could also be something entirely different.

    I watched the whole series in two days. While watching, I was convinced he was innocent all the way through, until the credits rolled on the final episode, and I just thought to myself he's guilty. The documentary just seems so biased and off. He may be able to come across as harmless, but he gives me weird vibes and is someone I definitely wouldn't want to be left alone in a room with

    I felt as though he was guilty until the owl evidence surfaced. With the other woman dying I could see that as being a coincidence. My only problem with that is he seems guilty minus the part of him not giving in. If he was the murderer after all this time, seeing as he thought he’d spend life in prison why wouldn’t he just admit it and shut it down

    The owl theory could actually be true regarding the evidence part..however, his family friend also had the same marks on her head and it seems super suspicious for me that two people in his life both died from..owl attacks? They should have tested the owl feet theory on his family friend also to see if those matched the wounds on the other womans head.

  • forturtles

    As soon as you said that his late wife was found the same way Kathleen was, I just had this gut feeling that he definitely did it. There's more evidence against him then there is to prove him innocent. But the way America's Justice System is set up, with all it's corruption and greed, it's almost always easy to get away with murder. Still the death of Kathleen Peterson is tragic, and she should be remembered with respect. I really enjoyed this video, Hailey! True Crime is totally my thing, and I would love to see more videos of you talking about different cases like this.

    He doesn't kill his wife. Just because he's an asshole here and there doesn't mean he will kill. Dang, adding unrelated topics to the case, proof of him being an asshole to make him a murderer doesn't make sense. The jury is problematic indeed.

    it literally has all the logical evidence, the second was murder because it was wayy to similiar, maybe after his wife died he started having gay love interests and then killed the second girl in the same fashion to cover it up

    I could actually see the owl theory, people are commenting 'wouldn't she have screamed?' but honestly if she's like me then no, she would've gone into flight mode and tried to get inside as fast as possible, and for me one glass of wine is enough to make me headachey and tipsy so maybe her balance was off and she didn't realize how badly she was injured, she probably tried to head up stairs to their master bathroom (to check her injuries) and ended up falling.
    as far as the husband goes I think he was in shock during the 911 call, I feel like he's probably the sort of guy who thinks he needs to lie in order to be accepted, he probably was gay to begin with but grew up thinking that it wasn't an option and stayed closeted, his other wife may have encountered something similar, I know the saying 'lightning never strikes twice' but some times it does and sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction.

    This case sounds a lot like a forensic files case, I can’t remember the names of anyone but i do remember the facts. For starters a wife and her husband had lived in a secluded small run down house. Nobody had heard from the wife in years until she was later found dead in her bed. The 911 call made by her husband and seemed very relaxed and clam like he had killed her. I can’t remember how she died but i think it had something to do with a disease or mental condition that left her unwilling to leave her own home because she was embarrassed of herself. They found the husband not guilty and is now a free man. Let me just point out I had been shown this video in a forensic middle school class and is really interesting I’m sorry I can’t remember the important details but it would be amazing if you could do a video on this 😊

    No one finds it weird that in the whole process of this murder investigation, Micheal Peterson and his team thought the best thing for them to do was to make a documentary? A COMPLETELY biased documentary, might I add. I can only hope that if I was tragically found dead, my husband’s first and only thought would be to find who did it, not immediately start filming everything to prove his innocence

    Maybe he beat her with a branch that had owl feathers on it.
    He sounded literally sincere on the 911 call. Weird his son showed up. My husband died from his motorcycle flipping due to a lady blocking both lanes with her SUV. He layed the bike down but it hit a pot hole and flipped him off.
    He didnt have a scratch on him. He was in a induced coma a week before he died. He had not a scratch and he was only driving less then 25mph. His scull was completely fractured. No blood.
    It seems to me that she had been attacked and maybe tried to go up the stairs and fell back down.
    But the fact that there was another woman who died the same way is odd. The marks on her scull could of been caused from a number of things. Maybe he attacked her and let her bleed out before he called 911. I mean wouldnt he know if she was attacked by an Owl???
    Ive been attacked by a bird and yes it hurts i wouldn’t say a baseball bat but it is similar to being hit in the head by something and yes it causes you to bleed.
    I just think somethings not right i dont think he is completely innocent.. The computer thing i dont find odd my brother nearly died and i was on the phone texting ppl after the ambulance took him to the hospital. Im not sure if you mentioned it but what was the actual cause of death?

    I've first seen this case on Discovery Investigation and I totally believed back then that he was guilty of his wife murder. Seeing the Netflix documentary I was so excited to see it but when I did... I've felt like the balance was towards his part "of being innocent", I've hated the fact that his kids stood by him so deeply disregarding Kathleen like she wasn't even human or ever existed like he raised them by himself. Made me so mad but I've watched it all and I still believe he killed her and his ex wife from Germany. He is a liar and a very manipulative person and I feel nausea only by hearing his voice and when you've said about his relationship with the Netflix chick... I am so done with him hahah. Killer 100%. Btw loved the approach on this video.

    What if Kathleen Peterson was outside, in her front yard. Suddenly an owl attacked her, she rusehd inside her house, running away from the owl, she went to the couch, and after she was just scampering around trying to get rid of the owl. Kathleen runs upstairs, but the owl is still attacking her, and while running upstairs, she loses her balance, tries to hold on the wall, giving the wall blood. She tumbles backwards, her footprint was already there, bc she had ran up the stairs. So the owl leaves, and Kathleen just bleeds out, already having lost blood. Making the owl guilty, for some damage.

    Maybe they were in an argument and his anger got the best of him and killed her and he realized what he had done and tried to make it seem like an accident.
    I don’t know, and maybe a personality disorder???? I don’t even know it’s another thing that popped through my head.
