Did Chris Watts strangle his daughters?

Chris Watts, a deranged killer, confesses to suffocating his two kids to death before putting their bodies in oil tanks. He also confessed to murdering his pregnant wife, Shanann Watts, in the same manner before burying her remains in a shallow grave. He claimed that he killed them so they wouldn't suffer and would be able to join him in heaven.

Watts has been charged with first-degree murder for the deaths of his wife and children. A judge has ordered him to remain held without bond as he waits for his trial to begin.

Watts has said that he didn't want his daughters to see what he had done, so he took them out of their beds and killed them. He has admitted to hiding their bodies in oil tanks on his property until he could dispose of them.

The couple's three other children, who were not involved in the murders, have been placed in the custody of their aunt. She says she doesn't know why Chris Watts did this or how he could have committed such atrocities, but she believes he is responsible for killing his wife and children. She has requested that no further questions be asked of her regarding what happened due to her young age. She has also declined to comment on what type of relationship she had with either of the parents.

What did Chris Watts say about his wife’s murder?

Watts had previously described his wife's murder as a spontaneous act of passion and had not previously acknowledged to planning or even considering the killings. The letter obtained by the Daily Mail is also the first documented occasion in which Watts acknowledged to attempting to murder his daughters previously. In it, he wrote that after killing his wife, he "felt guilty about what I had done and knew that I needed to kill my daughters too to save them from suffering the same fate as their mother."

He went on to write that because he failed to kill them when he had the opportunity, he decided to move forward with his plan to leave the country with the girls. In the letter, Watts said that he killed his wife so he could start a new life with the girls and live in peace away from his former life of crime. He concluded by saying that he was sorry for what he had done.

Watts has been held in Colorado's infamous El Dorado Correctional Facility since his arrest in July 2018. He is scheduled to be sentenced on January 8th, 2020.

What happened to Shannan Watts' baby?

Shanann Watts' fetus had been ejected from her corpse, which her husband, Chris Watts, had buried in a shallow grave. He dropped his children's remains into two oil tankers where he worked. Four days later, the bodies were discovered. Shanann's corpse was discovered near the tankers in a shallow grave. She had given birth just months before she died.

Watts claimed that he and Shanann had argued about her wanting another child while they were married. He said that she took out a restraining order against him but later dropped it. He said that this caused him to kill their daughters because he couldn't stand to see them in pain. A judge granted Shanann a permanent protective order against Watts. He is being held without bail until his next court appearance on August 19.

The couple had met when Watts moved to Boulder to work as a rock drill operator. He originally from California, he had moved to Colorado to be closer to his brother. His brother lived in Boulder so they decided to move together. They got married in Las Vegas in 2009 after only dating for a few months. They had two children together: a son named Charlie and a daughter named Ava.

After learning that she was pregnant with their third child, Shanann told Watts that they needed to discuss their future together. He agreed but then went back to working on his job site. She said that this made her feel like he didn't want to be part of their family anymore.

Did they find Chris Watts' daughters?

Chris Watts, how did you get your girls into the oil tanks? Shanann's body was discovered in a shallow grave, and the girls were placed in oil tanks on Watts' previous employer's land, the Anadarko oil and gas plant. The employees there called police when they couldn't get inside the woman's room because it was locked from the outside. A security guard heard something falling into the tank and thought it was water, so he opened the door. That's when he saw the body of Shanann Watts.

The Anadarko staff also told police that they had not seen or heard from Watts since his wife's death. They said they believed him to be either dead or missing himself. Police said they found evidence that showed Watts had shot himself in the head at some point after the family went missing.

Watts has been charged with first-degree murder for his role in his wife's death and with kidnapping his daughters, three-year-old Lyric and one-year-old La'Grace. He has not entered a plea to these charges and is being held without bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for November 29th.

Watts has admitted to killing his wife but has denied knowing that her body would be found under their house. He has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to the murder charge.
