When is Psychopath with Piers Morgan on TV?
You can catch this show TONIGHT (June 27, 2019) .
You can watch it at 9pm on ITV.
If you miss it you can watch it on the ITV Hub after it has aired.
Who is Paris Bennett?
Bennett is a diagnosed psychopath said to have an IQ of 141, classifying him as a genius.
Experts say he holds personality traits such as extreme egocentricity and a lack of ability to love.
He killed his little sister Ella 12 years ago when he was just 13 at their home in Abilene, Texas.
Bennett had once intended to target his mum, Charity, but killed his sister as a way of getting to her.
He said on the show: “For many years, there was just this hot, flaming ball of wrath in the pit of my stomach and it was directed at my mother.
"And one of the reasons why I chose to kill my sister and not someone else is because I knew that by doing that I could hurt my mother in the worst possible way, because I had always known, as a child, that the most devastating thing to my mother would be the loss of one of her children, and I found a way to take away both her children in one fell swoop."
He added: “Yes, I did commit a monstrous crime but does that one mistake define my entire life…I don’t think it does.”
However despite experts diagnosing him as psychopathic, Bennett claimed in a previous interview he did not suffer from any mental illness.
He told the Investigation Discovery channel’s The Family I Had in 2017: “I chose to do my crime and I take full responsibility for my crime. And I wouldn’t say there was a predisposition to what happened. I’m not insane and I don’t suffer from any mental illness.”
What will happen on Psychopath with Piers Morgan?
In 2007, Paris stabbed to death his 4-year-old sister, Ella.
This was no impulsive fit of rage, but a cold, deliberate act planned for weeks beforehand and born of festering resentment.
In Bennett’s first interview on British television he admits to Piers that the murder was driven by a calculated desire to inflict pain and misery upon his mother, Charity – who in a unique format twist is watching the encounter as it unfolds on a TV monitor in a nearby room.
Paris Bennett said: “Yes, I did commit a monstrous crime but does that one mistake define my entire life…I don’t think it does”.
Charity has stood by her son even though she fears that when he gets out, Paris could still harbour violent intentions towards her.
Unlike many of the American murderers Piers has interviewed, it is likely that one day he will walk out of prison a free man. Despite his heinous crime, Paris is first eligible for parole in 8 years’ time.
The situation is now even more complex as Charity has a younger son, Phoenix.
Charity fears that, after his release, they both could be a target for Paris’ psychopathic resentment.
As Piers burrows into the workings of Paris’ psyche over one intense hour, the interview is also viewed by a former elite FBI profiler and one of America’s leading criminologists.
What has Piers Morgan said about Psychopath with Piers Morgan?
Piers has revealed he was banned from being in the same room as psychopath killer Paris Bennett over fears he'd be murdered.
The 54-year-old presenter has interviewed a number of murderers behind bars over the years, but this was the first time that he was not allowed to share a space with them.
Speaking on Lorraine , the Good Morning Britain host explained: "I have sat with a lot of killers, I did the Killer Women series and Serial Killer and so on, very dangerous people.
"I have never felt quite as chilled in a bad way as I was by that guy, because he was so intelligent. A genius level IQ, very articulate.
"The FBI profilers we brought in to advise us said: 'He'll have done his research on you very thoroughly, he will try and play you, he will be manipulating you', and I really felt that.
"I felt like I was in psychological combat with this guy."
