An incisive, unflinching account of the shocking, summer 2007 Connecticut crime that is still making national headlines, Murder in Connecticut examines what happened to Dr. William Petit, his wife Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and their two daughters, Hayley and Michaela, in the early morning hours of July 23 in the quiet town of Cheshire–and how their community rallied bravely around the sole survivor of this vicious home invasion.

 

Who was the Petit family? How were they marked for murder by their killers, Joshua Komisarjevsky and Steven Hayes? How could these men have dreamed up such a crime? And will these horrifying murders–with startling similarities to the case in Truman Capote’s classic In Cold Blood–really be the impetus behind sweeping parole reform laws that will not only affect Connecticut, but all of America?
