Actually, killers who "overkill" their victim generally know their victim quite well. All the anger they've been harboring against this person explodes in the killing. IF what the defense is claiming is true, I don't think Scott needed to be on drugs to do it. He had plenty of anger and resentment to fuel him.

Someone on another forum reported seeing Ted Rowlands report this morning saying that head, hands and feet were gone.
Also, said that there were "hundreds" of people who said they saw Scott that morning ... including one man who saw him at the marina at about 6:30 and watched him with binoculars. Saw him towing something ... or something floating by the boat (Laci?).

Very possible. Almost every story I've seen on Peterson said he was usually calm and collected, rarely lost his temper, which is why I suggested maybe he was on drugs.
But there's also the factor of someone who never releases emotion, then all of a sudden it comes out in a huge fit of rage. Either way, given the nature of the crime Peterson can't claim it was a crime of passion should he decide to plea, it's death penalty or life all the way.
