When we look back at the trial of serial killer who received the death sentence, Ted Bundy, it was reported that he showed no emotion.
When we look back at the reaction of Scott Peterson who was convicted to death for killing his wife and unborn baby, we all witness that he had a mask like facial expression and showed no emotion.
Now we have seen the same thing with Drew Peterson. As soon as the verdict of Guilty was read for his killing his third wife Kathleen Savio, it was reported that Drew Peterson showed no emotion.
The lack of emotion is very typical of a sociopath’s reaction when found guilty. They detach and tune out as though the situation had nothing to do with them.
They may even joke and make light of their situation. It was overheard that after hearing the guilt verdict Drew Peterson said “I guess that ruins my Christmas.”
His “joke” clearly reflects that he feels no remorse for what he did.
Peterson will be spending the rest of his natural life behind bars where like most sociopaths will insist he did nothing wrong and how it was everyone else’s fault he is in prison.
This sociopath will be where he deserves to be so he can no longer seduce, marry, and harm women who fall prey to him.
Peterson fancies himself as being irresistible to women.
Like many sociopaths, his seductive personality lured them in. The fact that he was a policeman and considered to be on the right side of the law, initially made many women feel safe and secure But once he got them into his clutches, it was a different story.He became controlling and abusive.
Thank goodness 24 year old Christina Raines father put an end to their engagement a few years ago as her father told the press that Peterson was trying to control his daughter and use her as a doormat to watch his kids.
The young woman’s father was her savior as he came to Peterson’s home with police in tow to collect his daughter as they were escorted to an from he home by several police cars.
Peterson who was over twice the young woman’s age blamed her father and the press for the breakup as in typical sociopath form said, “
“This is what the media always does to me,” “As soon as the story got out on Chrissy, I knew it would be a problem for us.”
If you listen close enough to what a sociopath says, they will often reveal themselves as Peterson did in his Nightline interview years back where Peterson old the reporter, “I’d be wary of me too” when asked about Christina Raines’ family. He also admitted when the romance is gone in his relationships, he tends to have flings and move on.
Thankfully, his comments sparked a fight between the couple and Christina Raines returned the engagement ring and a cell phone.
Lucky Christina Raines was 24. Unlucky Stacey Peterson who is still missing, was 17 when he began his affair with her while still married to third wife Kathleen Savio. Kathleen was 10 years his junior when he married her.
Most of the women he married or went after were very young or very petite. These were women Peterson felt he had some control over.
I had the opportunity to briefly see Peterson when I was at CNN. Peterson was there to do the Larry King show and was in the makeup room where, according to the makeup artist, he hit on her. She reported to me that he stared directly into her eyes and wouldn’t break his gaze as he stared directly into her eyes while she applied makeup.
Perhaps Peterson wanted to see if he could control or even destroy this curly haired, glasses, wearing, pierced, very short statured, woman with colorful and strange tattoos all over her arms and chest and neck.
The alleged eye stare was no doubt his test to see if he could assert any control over this odd looking woman.
Most likely Peterson has played this staring game with many other women. Those who , blink, turn away or those whom he senses are intimidated by his stare are the ones , if circumstances allowed, he no doubt took to the next level of seduction.
Even though Peterson will live out his years behind bars, don’t be surprised if you hear that Peterson has landed another relationship.
Unfortunately there are emotionally disturbed women out there who are attracted to men behind bars and who feel empowered by defending them. They have the illusion the criminal would never do any harm to them because they are so special and they have control over the situation.. That is only true to an extent that the perpetrator is behind bars.
But little do they realize that sociopaths like Peterson will still be the ones in control as he plays mind games with them and most likely engaging in his familiar manipulation and emotional abuse, so typical of a sociopath.
