On Monday, a documentary that focuses on the widely-publicized Petit home invasion in Cheshire is set to premier. The film is critical of the Cheshire Police Department.
The film, entitled "The Cheshire Murders," is set to premier at 9 p.m. on July 22 on HBO, according to the New Haven Register. It focuses on the home invasion that took place on July 23, 2007 at the Cheshire home of Dr. William Petit, where Joshua Komisarjevsky and Steven Hayes murdered his wife and two daughters.
The documentary details the crime. It also questions how the Cheshire Police Department handled the invasion, as they allegedly waited outside while the Petit family was slaughtered, according to the New Haven Register.
Members of the Cheshire Police Department, including the chief, refused to be interviewed for the documentary, according to the New Haven Register. The two-hour documentary was made by husband-and-wife team David Heilbroner and Kate Davis.
