Tonight Saturday (Apri 22 2023) “48 Hours” After a night out, two women were dumped outside hospitals by masked men
The April 22 edition of “48 Hours” airs at 10PM ET/PT on CBS. You can watch previous episodes at CBS and ParamountPlus. Florida man Trevor Summers manipulated his children into believing he just wanted to get back together with his estranged wife, Alisa. He even encouraged one of his daughters to leave a window open in Alisa’s home so he could slip in claiming he wanted to talk to her about making the family whole again. That daughter had no way of knowing the so-called reconciliation would turn into a horrific 55-hour ordeal – one that almost cost Alisa Mathewson her life. Correspondent Peter Van Sant and 48 HOURS report on what happened that night in 2017 and the case against Trevor Summers in “Alisa Mathewson’s Night Terrors,”
Once inside the house, Trevor Summers woke up Alisa by dripping water on her head. He told his 14-year-old daughter, Arden, to drive her siblings to his house and wait. Trevor Summers began a reign of terror that included tying Mathewson with a string of holiday lights, kidnapping her, sexually assaulting her and then trying to kill her, according to investigators. At one point, Trevor Summers even used Mathewson’s phone to record bizarre messages. In a wide-ranging interview with Van Sant, Mathewson opens up about that experience and facing her ex-husband while on the stand at his trial.
“He put a pillow over my face, and he pushed down with all of his upper body,” Mathewson says of that attack. “And I thought about my kids … And I, and I lost consciousness.”
