Is evidence that raises new questions about whether they could have done to save the Pettit family?
Surveillance photos showed a child victim Jennifer Pettit Hawk an hour before his death. Was seen by the withdrawal and 15,000 … and told the bank teller was his entire family hostage in their home.
She said she needed the money for the rescue.
At 9:21, the manager of the bank made a 911 call.
“We have a lady who is on our bench right now who says her husband and children are detained at home … people are in a car outside the bank, which is receiving $ 15 000 to take to that if the police are told to kill the children and the husband, “said the bank manager of the 911 operator.
Prosecutors said Steven Hayes and Joshua Komisarjevsky were terrorizing the family. Dr. William Pettit beaten with a baseball bat and tied him to a pole in the basement. His two daughters were tied to their beds upstairs.
Investigators said they were tortured all night until sunrise, and the bank opened.
“They are bound, he said. She is taking, and 15,000 off your credit line,” said bank manager in the call to 911. “They said I would not do any harm if she returned there with the money and believe them.”
The officers were sent home, but according to police records, were told by the captain not to approach the house and stay back until they could establish a security perimeter.
Thirty minutes after the first 911 calls had not yet ambulances or fire trucks and emergency crews could not move in.
At that time, Jennifer was back home with the money, his family and the attackers.
William Pettit said he heard his family being tortured above.
Somehow, bound and beaten, he managed to escape, go to a neighbor’s house for help.
Minutes later, there was a ball of fire, and prosecutors said the suspects raped and strangled Jennifer Petit and burned the house.
The mother and her two daughters all died.
In court Wednesday, the judge had to dismiss all the principles. Photographic evidence was so disturbing, all the jury was crying.
