Paris Bennett murdered his four-year-old sister when he was just 13 years of age

In the documentary, Piers interviews a criminal for an extraordinary case, which involved Paris Bennett murdering his four-year-old sister when he was just 13 years of age, and is due to face parole. Piers has interviewed many criminals for plenty of his documentary shows including American serial killer Alex Henriquez for a one-off show, Serial Killer with Piers Morgan. The journalist even spoke to HELLO! about how difficult he found the experience, admitting he felt "revulsion" and "sickened".

He told HELLO!: "It's hard to hide revulsion. I have a young daughter and when you see the ages... and you see the devastation caused to so many lives by the deaths of these young people, obviously you think about your own family and how you'd feel and you feel sickened. Often I'd go home to the hotel, pour myself a large drink and have a long, long hot shower and just try and drain it out of you because you just feel sickened."
