Who is Chris Watts?

Chris Watts is a dad who was convicted for the murder of his pregnant wife and two daughters after their bodies were found at a nearby oil plant.

Cops say the Colorado man confessed to killing them just hours after appearing on the TV appealing for help.

He pleaded guilty to their murders during a court appearance on November 6, and was sentenced on November 19.

His guilty plea came after a plea deal to avoid the death penalty.

Watts earlier claimed he texted his wife numerous times but didn't receive any response

The 33-year-old was arrested on August 21, 2018, on suspicion of murder by police in Denver.

His wife Shanann and the couple’s two young daughters were found dead at the oil and gas exploration site where he worked.

Shanann was 15 weeks pregnant with their third child at the time.

On November 6, 2018, Watts sobbed in court as he pleaded guilty to five counts of murder in the first degree, three counts of tampering with a deceased human body, and one count of unlawful termination of a pregnancy.

The request not to seek the death penalty came from Shannan’s family.

Watts had previously denied the charges and even made a tearful TV appeal for his family’s safe return after they were reported missing in Frederick, Colorado.

Shannan’s body was found buried in a shallow grave and the girls had been dumped in oil tanks on the property of Watts’ former employer – the Anadarko oil and gas site.

Chris was having an affair with Nichol Kessinger

He was employed at the site which is located near the family home in Frederick, on the outskirts of the Mile High City.

Watts sent his mistress Nichol Kessinger a chilling text message that his family had “gone” at around 3.45pm on the day his wife and kids were reported missing.

Ms Kessinger recalls receiving the emotionless and cold message, which followed a dozen normal messages they had shared throughout the working day.

Reading the news, she became even more confused when she realised journalists were outside his house, and she was horrified to learn he was still married to a woman who was 15 weeks pregnant.

Ms Kessinger had starting dating Watts in early July, 2018 believing he was separated and at the end of divorce proceedings.

Evil Watts slaughtered his entire family

Where is Chris Watts now?

Watts is currently serving life in prison without the possibility of parole.

He can be found locked up in Dodge Correctional Institution, Wisconsin.

As we mentioned earlier, he was spared the death penalty after agreeing to a guilty plea on nine counts

Chris was found out thanks to his web of lies

What is the documentary about the case?

The Netflix documentary American Murder: The Family Next Door was released on September 30, 2020.

The documentary explores the deaths of Shanann Watts and her two daughters.

The true-crime documentary, which runs for one hour and 23 minutes, brings viewers into the grim mystery leading up to the deaths of 34-year-old Shannan Watts and her two young daughters, who were reported missing in their hometown of Frederick, Colorado.

Director Jenny Popplewell pieces together archive footage, social media posts, self-shot videos, text messages, and police phone recordings to reveal the twisted backstory that leads up to the murders.
