Since his arrest and trial in 2018, the murderer has been getting letters with racy pictures from his women admirers.
Chris Watts, who was convicted in Colorado of murdering his pregnant wife and their two young daughters, has been sending "racy" letters to his female admirers, according to People, citing an unnamed source. Since his arrest and trial in 2018, the murderer has been getting a letter from women. "They send sexy pictures, and he responds," a jail source told the magazine. "Many women regard him as attractive and misunderstood. They send a large number of letters."
Watts has communicated with the source several times, according to People reporters. Watts is serving a life sentence in a federal prison in Wisconsin. According to the magazine, prisoners are allowed to send and receive non-threatening letters, but pornography is prohibited. There are no rules against suggestive images. "He has nothing else to do," according to the source. "In this way, he feeds his ego. Because he is not well-liked in prison. He's being held in protective custody. These letters are his only means of communication."
Watts pleaded guilty four years ago to suffocating his wife, Shan'ann, and suffocating their daughters, Bella, four, and Celeste, three. As per police, he killed his family because he was having an affair with a coworker who thought he was separated from his wife. Watts, 35, is now imprisoned in Wisconsin. In his cell, he has a Bible and several family photos. According to the source, Watts began receiving more mail after the 2020 release of a Netflix documentary about his extraordinary case. The documentary, American Murder: The Family NextDoor, investigated the case from beginning to end. "I'm not sure what he's hoping to gain from these letters," says the source. "However, these women are extremely important to him. They are truly all he has."
The documentary depicts a failing marriage and claims that while Shanann was ready to fight to save their marriage, Chris had already checked out and was looking for a way out. According to People, when the documentary was about to be released, the employees inside the prison were waiting for it to be released. He's the most well-known inmate, and what he did is beyond comprehension, so everyone is curious about the case."
To tell the story of their deteriorating marriage and Shanann's murder, American Murder: The Family Next Door also includes police bodycam footage, Shanann's social media posts, and a police interrogation video. "Chris is aware that every aspect of his life is available for public consumption," the source says. "He despises it. It makes him feel a great deal of shame. But he also understands that he brought it on himself."
Chris strangled Shannan inside their Colorado home on August 13 before driving her body, along with Bella and Celeste, who were still alive, to an oil field where he worked. Chris then stated he choked to death his daughters in the back of the car before burying their bodies in oil tanks. He buried Shannan's body in a nearby shallow grave.
