Tonight Saturday (February 11 2023) “48 Hours” Investigates in “The Kidnapping of Michelle and Breea Renee”
Tonight, The February 11 edition of “CBS 48 Hours” airs at 10PM ET/PT on CBS. You can watch previous episodes at CBS and ParamountPlus.
Michelle Renee’s daughter Breea was 7 years old when three masked gunmen broke into the bank manager’s Vista, Calif., home in November 2000 and held them hostage all night. They told her she would have to rob the bank where she worked, or they would die. In the morning, the abductors told them they were strapping them with dynamite that they would detonate if Renee didn’t follow their instructions. With her and her daughter’s lives on the line, she walked into the bank and walked out with $360,000. Once the gunmen had the money, Renee raced home to find her daughter still alive and called for help. Responding law enforcement officers discovered the dynamite was fake. Renee would provide a key lead that would help investigators crack the case. But when the suspects went on trial, the ringleader falsely claimed Renee masterminded the bank robbery and that they’d had an affair. 48 HOURS contributor Tracy Smith reports on Renee’s story of what happened and the trauma that she and her daughter have had to live with in “The Kidnapping of Michelle and Breea Renee,”
