The first police officers who arrived at the Peterson
home on Christmas Eve said there were no signs of
foul play, but a few things, including this rug, did
arouse their suspicion. The rag rug was originally
scrunched up "like an accordion" against a door
leading out to the couple's vehicles. When one
officer pointed out the rug to Peterson, he said the
cat and dog had probably been playing. He then
straightened it out with his foot, leaving it in the
position that police later photographed it in.
