I don't think this solves the crime but it is an interesting question! I remember seeing some old videos of MP during his mayoral campaign in Durham -- they are in possession of the local TV stations of the area and that's just MP the politician. His columns in the 90s were explosive, sarcastic, and confrontational. Many people in Durham thought he was a smug jerk but other people loved him. He was definitely not loved by all, yet, many people voted for him in the mayor primary. Hope this helps.

I would love to see their home videos. I think it's possible he had been a jerk for a long time and murdered Kathleen in a rage, but he calmed himself down and became more in control of himself when he realized he was going to be held responsible this time.

I think he was horrible to Patty and eventually he became horrible to Kathleen. He never should’ve been in a monogamous relationship to begin with

I'm from Durham and can confirm he's always been that way. Not a different person after.

How did you know him?

He was a very public figure who was out and about everywhere in the years leading up to Kathleen's death, and I once ran into him in a professional context. In later years, I've seen him and his family at the swimming pool shown in the documentary.

Was his personality different? How?

Not to the casual observer. He's always come across as a grandiose narcissist with a side of mania and a combative stance towards the world. Sadly, I see those same traits in the videos his son Todd has been posting recently to his Instagram.

We're *that* close to solving it! Now, imagine that the video taken months before Kathleen's death features Michael in the woods, putting dead mice on a mannequin's head...
