Rape suspect Greg Peterson unapologetic in suicide note
His courageous victims were telling the truth, district attorney says
In his note, however, Peterson called the "delusional thinking" of his accusers "stunning." He said the idea of "innocent until proven guilty" was non-existent in his case. Peterson also claimed the only person he ever pointed a gun at was himself.
He also encouraged his supporters to now file a wrongful death suit, calling it the only way "to fully expose this tragic and motivated murder." He challenged his friends to "make my accusers famous" by revealing their motives. Peterson also expressed frustration with his attorneys for not saying more and letting him "fight back."
"I meet my Creator in a few short minutes, so I have no reason to lie. I want the world to learn from this tragedy and to hear my side of the story that never got told," he wrote.
On his Facebook wall, many of his friends expressed their desire for "the truth" to be revealed for Peterson's family. An obituary was also posted, noting that a graveside service would be held in Omaha on Thursday.
The suicide note ended with, "I love you all very much, even the fair-weathered friends. God bless you."
