Watts' mother-in-law was first to call police when her daughter and grandchildren went missing

A Colorado woman and her two tiny daughters were murdered by her husband and reported missing by her mother.

On August 2018, Christopher Watts, a 33-year-old Colorado man murdered his pregnant wife and his two tiny daughters, reported The Sun, on November 16, 2018.

Shanann Watts, 34, and her two daughters Bella, and Celeste went missing on August 13, after supposedly leaving the house that morning to attend a play date. Shannan's mother reported them missing, but they were never seen again, reported The Denver Post on November 22, 2018.

“She stated that Christopher is acting, ‘Weird,’ and out of the ordinary. She said that Christopher is telling people, ‘He has to go to work,’ and that just doesn’t seem right. She felt that he is going out to pour oil on the bodies to dispose of them somewhere.”

COURT TRANSCRIPTS REVEAL HARROWING DETAILS

Watts was found guilty at the Weld County Courthouse of murdering his pregnant wife, Shanann, and their daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste, and was sentenced to life in prison.

The Denver Post obtained the case file and court transcripts through an open records request which was made available after Watts' sentencing and reveal hitherto unknown details of the chilling crime.

Even though Watts pleaded guilty to the murders in order to avoid the death penalty, he has refused to answer questions pertaining to the crime and his motivations for strangling his pregnant wife and smothering his daughters.

SUSPICIOUS MOTHER-IN-LAW REPORTED HER DAUGHTER MISSING 

Sandra Rzucek, Shanann Watts’ mother, reported her daughter and granddaughter's missing the day after their disappearance when she failed to get in touch with her daughter or obtain a satisfactory response from her son-in-law. Rzucek immediately suspected Watts of being involved in the disappearance and transmitted her suspicions to the Police, referring to his "strange" behavior. 

WATTS PLEADED GUILTY ON 9 CHARGES

Even though Watts pleaded guilty to the murders in order to avoid the death penalty, he has refused to answer questions pertaining to the crime and his motivations for strangling his pregnant wife and smothering his daughters.

Watts and Shanann had had what appeared to be a happy marriage until she started suspecting her husband of having an affair when he began acting coldly towards her.

A WEB OF LIES AND A CHILLING MESSAGE TO WATTS' MISTRESS HINTING AT THE CRIME

Watts was indeed involved in an illicit relationship with a colleague, Nichol Kessinger.

Kessinger was told by Watts that he was in the middle of a divot«rce when their relationship started and even helped him house-hunt for an apartment where he could receive his children for parental visits on weekends.

When Shanann Watts and her daughters disappeared, Watts seemed unconcerned and sent Kessinger cryptic messages hinting at the crime, and Kessinger discovered that he was still married and that his wife was pregnant.

A horrified Kessinger contacted the Police and revealed that she was having an affair with Watts, and showed them the text messages she had received from her lover.

Watts was charged and convicted on 5 counts of murder: 3 counts of Murder in the First Degree for Shannan and the girls, and 2 counts of murder of a child who has not yet reached the age of 12 and the defendant was in a position of trust for Bella and Celest Watts.

Watt's parents still believe that their son is innocent, and was railroaded into pleading guilty by his defense attorney and the prosecutor.
