Chris Watts

There was no question in the minds of our people that Chris Watts knew something about the disappearance of his family from the minute he failed a polygraph test.

Chris admitted to his father that he had killed Shanann Watts in response to increasing pressure from law enforcement. He revealed where he had concealed the bodies as well.

Chris initially asserted that Shanann murdered their daughters, which is why he killed her. However, he later admitted to killing his wife and daughters.

By entering a guilty plea, he was spared the death penalty in exchange for five life sentences and 84 years in prison for his role in the murders of Shannan, Bella, Celeste, Shannan’s unborn child, and Shannan.

Chris spends his days in prison communicating with his many pen pals

Chris Watts is detained at the Waupun, Wisconsin, Dodge Correctional Institution, which offers the highest level of security. He was initially detained in Colorado, but for security purposes, authorities transferred him to Wisconsin.

Watts prefers a solitary existence in prison, where parents who murder children are not well-liked. According to a source who spoke to People, Chris is an outcast even among his fellow inmates:

“No one wants anything to do with him. He’s on the lowest social tier of the entire prison. He’s in protective custody because if he’s around other inmates, he’d be in real danger.”

Initially, Watts had his cell, but he now shares one with fellow child killer Marcus’ MJ’ Johnson. Fellow inmate David Carter told The Daily Mail that Watts and MJ get along. Carter stated that the pair are hugely unpopular in prison, but correctional officers do an excellent job of keeping them safe. He said:

“Chris gets a lot of death threats from other prisoners and so does MJ because of what they both did. So they weren’t able to put either of them in with just anyone. Many of the officers in Dodge think both he and Dylan Tallman are POS – but it’s their job to protect him and they do it well.”

In Carter’s opinion, given the hostility Chris Watts encounters both inside and outside, Dodge is the safest location for him. In prison, Chris continues to get a lot of letters; some express appreciation and sympathy, while others express danger to his life. He spends his time answering to fan correspondence, a source told People:

“He got a lot of letters at first. Many of them are from women who thought he was handsome and felt compassion for him. He had nothing better to do, so he wrote them back. And he started having penpals. A couple of them stood out, and they’ve kept contact. They have compassion on him, despite what he did.”

Watts forwards mail to other prisoners since he is unable to respond to all of it. Even when some of his admirers send him money, he doesn’t get anything in return. The money, which can occasionally reach $1,000 each week, is used to pay off Shannan’s family’s wrongful death lawsuit against him. The judge mandated Watts to provide Shannan’s family $6 million.

Chris is reportedly in touch with his mistress Nichol Kessinger

After reviewing his phone records, the authorities learned about Nichol Kessinger’s liaison with Chris. Kessinger was crucial to the prosecution’s case against Chris because she was uncomfortable with Chris’s cool response to his family’s abduction.

Later on, Watts would admit that he murdered Shannan in order to date Nichol. After making the revelation, Nichol became the subject of slanderous emails from those who accused her of being responsible for Shannan’s passing. Nichol took a new identity and disappeared when the lawsuit was resolved.

Based on letters Chris wrote to her from prison, author Cherlyn Cadle was able to learn more about Chris’ mental state in the days leading up to the killings. Cadle was informed by Watts that he committed the crimes in order to rekindle his romance with Nichol. Cherlyn stated to Fox News:

“I knew in my heart right then and there that this was the real and true confession. He said it was planned right away. It was premeditated. And he wanted to clear the slate. He wanted to start over. He didn’t want to bring any baggage into the new relationship. And there was a good-sized insurance policy.”

“He planned the murders… [his affair] had such a hold on him… He was so obsessed with her,” Cadle added. She absolved Cadle of any responsibility in the murders and painted Chris as a demented killer. “He would just stand there and just daydream about what it would be like to kill her,” she added.

Watts told David Carter that he believes that Nichol Kessinger contacted him via a letter. “He told me she said she needed to speak to him and clear some things up,” Carter divulged. “He wouldn’t tell me exactly what she had said.”

Carter admitted to Cherlyn that he still had feelings for Nichol and thought some of the letters he had been receiving were from her. He insisted that Nichol used aliases to elude detection, but correctional personnel quickly discovered this and began keeping an eye on his mail.

David believes that Carter has found intimacy with fellow inmate Dylan Tallman. Dylan’s then-girlfriend, Christa Richello, denied the relationship’s existence during an interview with The Daily Mail. “They are indeed lovers,” Carter insisted. “They spent all their time together and officers told me that they were in a relationship.”

Chris believes that he will get out of prison and is working on an appeal.
