Killer Dad Chris Watts Tells All About His Mistress and His Murders
Read the most shocking revelations from the killer Colorado dad's jailhouse interview.
Nearly four months after Colorado dad Chris Watts was convicted in the grisly murders of his wife and little girls, authorities have released an audio confession that sheds light on how he apparently snapped and snatched away their lives.
On Feb. 18, investigators sat down with the 33-year-old Watts at his new home: the Dodge Correctional Institution, a maximum security lockup in Waupun, Wisconsin. As one detective explained to Watts, “We just really want to get into the mindset of what happened, and you can imagine this is really important for us in the future, when we’re talking to a guy that’s in your position. To say, you know, ‘This isn’t really a monster. This is more like a Chris Watts.’”
In the five hours of tape, Watts discusses strangling his wife, Shanann, and loading her body into the back of his work truck. His daughters—3-year-old Celeste, or CeCe, and 4-year-old Bella—were still alive and in the backseat as he drove their mother to an Anadarko oilfield where he worked, and where they, too, would meet their end.
