“The documentary has a more up-to-date, DIFFERENT ending.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThereu0026#39;s more crime here than just one alleged murder.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis version does highlight the strains within the family, which are huge. (I think Kathleenu0026#39;s sisters would have had Peterson summarily shot immediately after Kathleen was discovered at the bottom of the staircase.)u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI read another theory awhile back, without making the all-important connection to this case. Basically, an owl did it. Seemingly absurd on the face of it, but awfully plausible as you look deeper. Kathleenu0026#39;s head injuries are consistent with an owl attack. Maybe an unindicted co-conspirator?”
