15 Minutes With... 1st Segment with Steven Hayes - Cheshire Home Invasion/Murders
On July 23, 2007 - In the quiet Town of Cheshire, Connecticut, Steven Hayes, and his accomplice Joshua Komisarjevsky bound, and robbed the Petit Family. William Petit, husband and father was beaten but managed to free himself and seek help. Hayes and Komisarjevsky would then further their heinous crimes when Komisarjevsky raped 11-year-old Michaela and coaxed Hayes to also rape and strangle Mrs. Petit. The two killers would then douse the women and the home with gasoline and set it on fire and flee, only to be captured about a half a block away. This crime shook the Town of Cheshire to its very foundation and destroyed a beautiful and loving family. These two individuals took three innocent lives that day as well.  Listen as Hayes talks not only about the why's, what's and who but gives first-hand information about that fateful day. He also delivers several messages not previously out there. Last but not least, listen as he sends a strong message to those who are on the same path as he was and those following a life of crime. Hayes and Komisarjevsky were both originally sentenced to death for their crimes however their sentences were changed to Life Without Parole when Connecticut repealed its Death Penalty. Both men deemed security risks were transferred to Pensylvania in 2016 where they remain today. What is it like on the inside? What are the messages Hayes is sending? You might be shocked at quite a few things in this first segment as he speaks with us.
