Prosecutor Jim Hardin agreed police never found a murder weapon, but told jurors the State could prove beyond a reasonable doubt that something fitting the description of the missing blowpoke is what killed Kathleen Peterson.

Shortly before the trial ended, David Rudolf entered a brass blowpoke into evidence, telling jurors it was accidentally found in Michael's basement by an unspecified person at an unspecified time. The jury paid little attention to Rudolf's blowpoke since it wasn't in the condition the bloodied and bent murder weapon would have been in. Rudolf on the other hand, thought the newly discovered poker was the central piece of evidence in Peterson's trial.
