Piers Morgan calls out ‘self-delusion’ of love-triangle killer

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Convicted Connecticut love triangle murderer Sheila Davalloo has broken her silence to the media for the first time in 15 years.

Speaking from New York’s Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women — the inspiration for the jail in the Netflix drama “Orange Is The New Black” — she sensationally claims she is innocent of two savage crimes which shocked America.

“I just feel like people don’t know me,” said the 48-year-old, who, in 2012, was found guilty of the bludgeoning to death of her rival Anna Lisa Raymundo in Stamford, CT, ten years earlier.

‘I just feel like people don’t know me.’

Davalloo, currently serving 25 years for the attempted sex game murder of her husband, Paul Christos, received a further 50 years of incarceration for the homicide of Raymundo, 32.

Should she live to 110, her total sentence will end in 2079.

“It [the evidence] is not the truth,” Davalloo told a skeptical Morgan. Wearing a crucifix around her neck, the Iranian-born prisoner was dressed for the cameras in a simple red top, gray skirt and black tights.

While she admitted her role in Christos’s case, she denied wanting to kill him. She also insisted she was nowhere near Raymundo’s apartment when her then co-worker was stabbed in the face and beaten about the head with a dumb bell.

Davalloo’s argument centered on her insistence that traces of her DNA found on a faucet in Raymundo’s bathroom were a result of cross-contamination by police. She also denied the motive put forward by the prosecution, maintaining that she could have easily divorced her husband rather than killing him.

The brutal events occurred after Davalloo became embroiled in a clandestine affair with Nelson Sessler, the 32-year-old fiancé of Raymundo. All three worked for Purdue Pharma in Stamford.

When Raymundo was found dead on November 8, 2002, Davalloo was never considered a suspect. Sessler lied to cops about conducting another relationship.

Police in Hawthorne, NY, arrested her in March 2003 for repeatedly stabbing her husband during a kinky sex game at their tony Pleasantville, NY home.

It involved Christos being blindfolded and handcuffed while he tried to guess what his wife was touching him with. After poking him with a paring knife, she stabbed him twice in the chest. Davalloo then drove him to the hospital. Once in the car park at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, NY, she stabbed him again, nicking his heart.

“I have no good explanation for any of it,” Davalloo told Morgan, referring to the sex game gone wrong. She then claimed that she and Christos often engaged in “consensual” violence such as slapping and punching.

Cops connected the crimes in Westchester and 20 miles away in Connecticut when detectives noted that Davalloo called Sessler (later revealed as her lover) soon after stabbing Christos.

Remarkably, the voice of the 911 caller who anonymously alerted the authorities to Raymundo’s plight the previous November matched Davalloo’s. The caller claimed she was a neighbor but was never traced.

On February 18, 2004 Davalloo was found guilty of Christos’s attempted murder. She was sentenced to the maximum of 25 years in state prison without the possibility of parole.

It wasn’t until February 2012 that she finally stood trial for the murder of Filipino-American Raymundo, whom judge Richard Comerford described as a “good soul” and a “charitable person.”

Davalloo, who represented herself, was convicted a day and a half after jurors began to consider their verdict. Crucial to their decision was her voice on the 911 call and evidence of her blood on a faucet in Raymundo’s bathroom. She had tried to clean herself up after the slaughter and had accidentally cut her arm in the struggle with her victim.

At the end of their meeting filmed by Plum Pictures, Morgan told Davalloo: “The saddest thing for me is your apparent self-delusion. You’ve convinced yourself you didn’t do it.”
