It started as a joke, but then became suddenly serious. I never found what prompted Pete to take the joke as far as he did, but here we are. I was originally told the shoes belonged to his brother, and every time Jace made him mad, Pete would throw his favorite shoes around the pole so they would quickly become ruined.
Now having been to Pete’s house, I know he doesn’t have a brother. And that the shoes he keeps destroying are his own and represent one of his major sins. A sin that coincided with a murder in town.
