The ongoing investigation of what led a father to take the lives of his two young daughters and wife has taken a bizarre turn. Chris Watts, from Colorado, admitted to killing his pregnant wife Shanann Watts, after claiming he saw her strangling one of their girls on a baby monitor in a bedroom.
His accusation was hardly believable after his admission of disposing all three bodies and rumors had surfaced in the meantime that this seemingly doting husband and father was having an affair with his co-worker…at the same workplace where he buried Shanann in a shallow grave and submerged the bodies of his young daughters in crud oil tanks.
After Chris was arrested people have been trying to figure out a motive as to why he would commit such a gruesome crime and many thought that rumors of an affair and his wife threatening to leave him were the motive. Recently, someone stepped forward claiming that they were having an affair with him and expounding on that claim with some exceptionally unexpected details.
Everyone is shocked to find out who has come forward.
According to Faith Family America, Chris Watts, a 33-year-old husband, and father of two daughters has arguably become the most disliked man in America. He initially claimed that his pregnant wife, 34-year-old Shanann Watts, and their two children, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste, went missing — publicly pleading for their safe return back home.
However, the man later confessed to murdering his entire family. Their bodies were discovered on Chris’ company property; his wife, who was carrying their baby boy Niko, was found in a shallow grave and his daughters were found submerged in an oil tank.
Once the public learned of his confession, any sympathy had for the man turned into complete rage. Chris claimed he killed his wife after he witnessed her strangling their daughters on the baby monitor, then stashed all three of the bodies. The public did not buy his outrageous story.
An investigation on the case is currently ongoing. As the public awaits for more details, including the autopsy report, Chris’ alleged former lover has come forward.
In an exclusive bombshell report obtained from HLN, an unidentified man revealed some outlandish details of their affair. According to the alleged ex-lover, Chris was not “out” yet, but the two had an on and off relationship for ten months.
He knew Chris had children but did not know he was married until after their relationship began. After the truth came out, the anonymous person said that Chris claimed to be the “victim” of certain types of abuse.
“He told me that he was a victim of emotional and verbal abuse and he was trapped in a loveless marriage and he didn’t know any way out because of his kids — because of the girls,” the source said over the phone.
Only time will tell his real motive for murdering his family and disposing of their bodies the way he did. Many have wondered if he had any help in their murders. Only time will tell why he committed such an awful crime. As of today, Chris has not entered a plea.
