Chris Watts is still in contact with the lover for whom he murdered his family, according to a fellow inmate: report
Chris Watts, who is serving a life sentence for the murders of his wife and two daughters, is said to be in communication with the girlfriend with whom he murdered his family in order to start a new life in 2018.
Nichol Kessinger, who changed her identity and vanished after Watts’ arrest and conviction, still writes to him under a new name, according to a fellow inmate.
David Carter, who was released from prison in February, told the news source, “He told me she stated she needed to speak to him to clear some things up.” “He wouldn’t tell me what she said exactly.”
Watts, a former oilfield worker, killed his wife in their Colorado home in August 2018, then went to an oil site and suffocated his two kids with blankets.
His wife’s body was discovered buried at the worksite, while his daughter’s body was discovered in an oil tank.
Watts was having an affair at the time of the murders, telling investigators months later that his girlfriend “never pushed him to get rid of his family,” but that their relationship may have “contributed” to his choice to murder his wife and daughters.
Watts stated he murdered his family because he didn’t want to pay child support and was afraid his wife would seize their Colorado home in a divorce, Carter told the Daily Mail.
“I don’t buy any of that,” Carter told the news organisation. “I have a lot going on in my life, but I’ve never wanted to come to a halt and murder my entire family because I wanted things to go my way.”
Watts met Kessinger at work in June 2018 and began having an affair with her almost immediately, staying at her house frequently and going on vacations with her.
On the day he murdered her, Shannan told Watts she knew “there was someone else.
” Watts denied it, but said the marriage was failing, at which point Shannan informed him he’d never see his children again, according to Watts.
Watts claimed he strangled his wife following that chat.
Watts was a frequent liar, according to Kessinger, who told the Denver Post in November 2018 that he misrepresented his relationship with his wife to her.
She told the Denver Post, “I don’t think there is a rational explanation for what he did.” “It’s a stupid and horrifying act.”
