We’ve reached a conclusion here folks, and by the end of this Peter will be apprehended. First though, there were more fuck ups to be made in the investigation. More and more evidence headquarters were set up across various areas only leading to important information being completely looked over. Peter was also spoken to several more times, but really why was he? The investigators didn’t even check up on his alibis. Then one night in 1981 Peter picked up a woman he intended to kill and little did he know she would be the one to end it all.
Thank you to David White for being such a trooper and helping me with this research!
