  1. I really can't understand why the police weren't over to their house asap! 33 minutes after the call! unheard of! They should be held accountable for their negligence!

  2. I think it's safe to leave out the "allegedly". It's pretty clear these two monsters murdered these good people who had much to contribute. I'm so glad he found a new woman and was able to move on. I'm glad he got a son to love so he never feels guilty for replacing his girls because that isnt what it was. His new son has beautiful angels watching over him.

  3. MONSTERS….how could people be so cruel…I thank him for having courage to talk about it…o my God!!!!! I hope them two are burning in hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. As much as I loved watching the Oprah Winfrey Show as a teenager, I noticed Oprah didn't have at least a box of Kleenex, ready to offer her guest, especially w/ this very horrific & traumatic experience he went through, he probably held his tears back, or didn't have any more tears to shed.. I cannot imagine his level of pain, my thoughts and prayers for him. Such a precious beautiful family. 😥💔

  5. He's right, God is not in control, yet. What a lovely sensitive, intelligent man. Lovely family, what a loss.

  6. God Bless this man and give him strength to keep going forward. His lovely wife and daughters did not deserve any of the torture.

  7. This indeed is a tragic story, But what comes to mind is , my People’s are women being raped our children being separated from us our husbands being whipped and tortured how can you expect a peaceful lifestyle from all of that

  8. Sir you are Brave. I commend you and I'm so sorry. This world need more of JESUS!!! I pray that your heart is comforted in knowing God has the last say so. I'm so sorry for you loss and pain. May God help you forever

  9. As a mom of girls I can’t even imagine what that mom was going through. The agony of knowing she had to leave her girls with these evil things. Bless you Dad. They’re in the best hands now. No more pain or suffering ever again.

  10. I remember this story so well.. horribly sad but so happy after some years this grieving husband and father was able to move on and remarry.. God bless and To his late wife and beautiful daughters RIP

  11. Omg this is horrific. How sad, those poor children and their Mum obviously, but abuse of children upsets me to the core

  12. Wow.. this poor man., way to early for an interview.. he clearly is still in shock and completely traumatized … his pain was palpable..

  13. I hope they hang the pictures of the people they murdered in their cells, that will be the best revenge.

  14. Wow… This is unbelievable how can there be so much evil I don’t understand… I was watching this video and I wanted to jump through the phone just to give him a hug and I feel so horrible for what he has gone through

  15. Gawd, just the next state over from me. Just why people do such horrible things for what gain. They did not take anything.

  16. Wow this poor man. I bet he wishes he could have gone with them. They’re in heaven waiting for you ♥️. I pray he finds some love and happiness 🙏. He’s a good man, lots of life to still live

  17. Do not let prisoners out on parole. Most of them do horrific crimes when they get out into civilization. For one, they hate society so they want to punish.

  18. O my God, this is very hard to watch. I am beyond angry and hurt for this family. So sorry for what happened.

  19. May God Bless This Wonderful Man and May He bring him the peace he needs to find during his time of grief , tremendous loss, and pain. In Jesus’s Name I Pray. Amen 🙏 Lizzie<3

  20. I understand that Oprah had to do this interview. But it’s just cringe worthy some of the question she asked.

  21. Has anyone seen the foreign film that used to be on netflix that is super similar to this story? -Horrific. Saddened that things like this really happen. I would be lost without my family):

  22. My heart goes out to this man to lose his wife and his two girls in this horrible way. This just breaks my heart.

  23. His wife went to the bank and she drew out money for these two no good, had she never went back in.

  24. God bless this man. He has managed to go on with his life. Here is an update.

  25. If the bank manager called the cops where were the cops you would have thought the cops would have been to that house immediately did somebody dropped the ball on that I can't imagine it would have took the cops 33 minutes to get there sounds like somebody needs to investigate that he's at the bank manager didn't call when he should have or the cops didn't respond to it like they should have but it definitely is a tragic loss I feel great Sympathy for the husband having lost all three precious ladies of his family may the good Lord give him strength

  26. And this is why I believe in The Death Penalty and we citizen's should have rights to protect our loved ones. Please don't ever over turn our Gun laws, for this reason

  27. He’s a child of god. If there’s any justice in this world or another realm, he deserves to be acknowledged for this horrible suffering, I feel only love and compassion for him. Bless him.

  28. Oprah, take the the time to come and hear the multitude of similar stories currently happening in South Africa durting the White genocide which is a daily occurence. All this while the media denies the existence there-of, and the perpetrators are never caught. Fear is our daily reality.

  29. He doesn’t even have anything of his daughters or wife to hold on to. I can’t even imagine the pain.

  30. Omg this is horrific the poor man. I cant even imagine. You can see the light is just deflated out of him. 😪

  31. Its evil men & crimes like this, that are completely justified to be punished with the Death Penalty, PERIOD! that poor darling man! 😡😩😢🤬

  32. My niece had gone to summer camp with Michaela years ago. She was devastated about what happened to her and her family. It's horrifying what those monsters did. Mr. Petit remains in my thoughts. 😔

  33. Heavenly Father….. have mercy on that man… and all of us…..we call upon your name, this is too much on us…

  34. Another reason to keep repeat felonious offenders in jail……it is past time to flip the switch on these two.

  35. I pray for God to wrap his arms around this man and give him the strength he needs daily. So so sorry for his loss. I think this is one of the worst things I've ever heard. Praying for strength for you Doctor xoxo

  36. I cried when this happened and still crying today those poor little girls and momma I hope these monsters die from lethal injection I cant imagine what haily and mckayla omg raped went through rip you angels😭😭😭

  37. There certainly is a lot of racist comments. Instead of taking the time to make racist comments, get off your duff and make the time to change the law.

  38. The most horrible thing ever imaginable, my prayers and thoughts go out to the husband and family of the mother. I remember my mother told me this story when i was young – my grandmother had a huge bungalow house, they were very well off. This was when my mom was still a kid. One night, my grandmother was up late and saw two men trying to pry the front door open. The kind of men who would have only one thing in mind, not robbery but assault. The door was a foldable sort of metal grate. She braced herself against the door and they poked knives through the slats to get her. Her arms and body were sliced all over but she never gave up, until the men left. God knows what would have happened if not for my grandmother’s bravery.

  39. We should all support mental health reform, it may save future lives, because I cannot help but think the people who did this needed treatment long before they did this. So sad. Why as a society we do not identify, educate, and treat people who are not well. It reminds me of an abused dog who bites someone then we kill it to protect others. Only this is far worse.

  40. So instead of people these criminal to death, they just let them stay in prison for life and the victim taxes is paying for them to stay alive in prison. America system is amazing! Right!

  41. After hearing this story, this is why I always make sure no one is following me home. It's so tragic. May those angels rest in peace.

  42. I remember when I saw this on the news, & sobbed, still sobbing. Bless his heart and the strength he has to continue. This is another reason we shouldn’t have sanctuary States, it’s so unsafe. I pray for him and his life. I truly feel he can help others. It’s so heartbreaking how the world has become.

  43. This is why I have 2 gates, stone wall, surveillance, flood lights, 5 dogs and many weapons at my house. I hope those men are dead and burning in eternal hell.

  44. This poor guy. Hate to say this but I bet his brain injury with that bat will cause serious problems with his brain, maybe even early dementia. I hope not though. A big blow like that to the brain is bad. Even a younger person would have an issue. His poor daddy having to tell his son. Those poor children and wife. I say death penalty. They don’t deserve to breathe the same air decent people do. They are corrupt and they have blackened minds hearts and souls when they hurt that child and her sister and his wife. The lack of sleep he has had, also causes damage to the brain. We as humans need sleep. Without it it causes major problems. And can cause dementia.

  45. How can anyone slaughter people ? What in the world goes on in the minds of these monsters? Death penalty isn't good enough! Life in prison too damn easy!

  46. He is right it is not God’s will. It is the corrupt and evil will of the men that did that. I wish we all were protected from evil..but the fact is it can happen to any one of us.

  47. That's why people arm themselves and why it's so important to protect the 2nd Amendment! The police often times can't get to you in time so you must protect yourself!

  48. وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ غَافِلًا عَمَّا يَعْمَلُ الظَّالِمُونَ ۚ إِنَّمَا يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ تَشْخَصُ فِيهِ الْأَبْصَارُ
    [Ibrahim : 42]
    (14:42) Do not think that Allah is unaware of what these unjust people are doing; He is only deferring their case to the Day when all eyes shall stare with consternation.

    مُهْطِعِينَ مُقْنِعِي رُءُوسِهِمْ لَا يَرْتَدُّ إِلَيْهِمْ طَرْفُهُمْ ۖ وَأَفْئِدَتُهُمْ هَوَاءٌ
    [Ibrahim : 43]
    (14:43) They shall be running in terror with heads uplifted and eyes fixed upwards and hearts becoming void.

  49. https://www.courant.com/news/connecticut/hc-dr-william-petit-htmlstory.html. This story has as good of an outcome as possible. He has remarried and has a son. He’s now a state representative in CT and fights for victims rights. Still, like he says, the pain from what happened to him is still raw.
