In the quiet suburb of Cheshire, Connecticut, Jennifer Petit and her two young daughters were killed in a horrific home invasion; husband and father William Petit was the only one who escaped alive. This gripping film explores the events of that shocking triple homicide that rocked the town and set off a politically charged death-penalty trial. The result is a disturbing revelation of police failures and untold personal dramas that point out the biggest tragedy of all: the crime could have been prevented at many turns.

Reviews about The Cheshire Murders

My only complaint is the discussions with family members about feelings got a bit tedious. I'm not taking away from their pain

Fascinating, disturbing story. Bumbling on the government's part is obvious, even though they won't admit it. My only complaint is the discussions with family members about feelings got a bit tedious. I'm not taking away from their pain; I just don't think some interviews added much to the film.

Sorry I bought it. can I get a refund?

Lots of errors in it. Poor taste. Brings back the night & following am. So many untrue things I wonder where the writer came up with these things? Not there when it happened probably. Listening to Cheshire gossip.

Five Stars

Horrible and fascinating. I had to pause several times because it was so uncomfortable to watch.

Excellent analysis

If you enjoy Forensic Files on TV, you should enjoy this presentation. But it does not out the local police department in a good light and they have not responded to the questions raised by the film.

Great documentary

Great documentary into this horrific crime. A must watch for those into crime documentaries.

Another good crime drama

Another good crime drama. A very sad story for that family. Such a senseless crime. I wish they would've focused more on the events of the crime but I understand being sensitive to the victim's family.
