Investigation Discovery Revisits the Petit Family Murders More Than 10 Years Later

It’s been more than ten years since Cheshire, CT residents Jennifer Hawke-Petit and kids Hayley and Michaela were murdered in cold blood by two men who broke into the family home in the middle of the night and held them hostage for hours. Only the father, Dr. William Petit Jr., survived after having been beaten with a baseball bat and tied to a pole in the basement.

On Monday night’s episode of People Magazine Investigates on Investigation Discovery, People Editor-in-Chief Jess Cagle and Jennifer’s sister, Cynthia Hawke-Renn, recounted a particularly disturbing moment — when Jennifer went to the bank to cash a $15,000 check hoping to pay off her family’s captors.
