Two children shannon worked at a call center for a local hospital and sold thrive products from home and raised their two daughters l. Thrive if you haven't heard of that is appropriate that they claim quote is a premium daily. Lifestyle plan to help individuals experience and reach peak physical and mental levels. You're gonna live look and feel ultra-premium like never before they made a pretty good living together and purchased a large five bedroom house in frederick colorado in two thousand thirteen along if they purchased their home they started to record quite a bit of credit card debt medical bills so they were really kind of living beyond their means. They mailed quite a bit of money together but Again you know. Chris really enjoyed spending money. He was apparently very very bad with money. And this again was another source of of a lot of trouble in their marriage financial problems being the number one cause of divorce. We just talk a little bit more about their financial problems A little bit later in the podcast. Facebook post from sheehan. Janine space would page painted a portrait of a very very happy married life. She called chris quote my rock and said that he was quote. The best dad us girls could ask for in quote. She said chris is the best thing ever. We had a storybook romance. Even bella saying about her love of her father senior quote. My daddy is a hero. He helps me grow up strong. He helps snuggle to he. Reads me books. Ties my shoes. You're a hero through and through my daddy my daddy. I love you in quote. Now with both christie's and janin's jobs. Their annual income was pretty cool. Nine ninety grand a year get bay. They filed bankruptcy in june of two thousand fifteen which is kind of kind of unusual in their bankruptcy filing listed a three thousand dollar a month mortgage and six hundred dollars a month in car payments with additional thirteen hundred dollars in monthly expenses. This all totaled forty nine hundred dollars in expenses every single month. These expenses combined with their mounting credit card debt and student loans and medical bills averaged out to a grand total of over seventy thousand dollars in unsecured claims on top of their mortgage their homeowners association will also suing him for one thousand five hundred thirty three dollars and eighty cents on top of all of their other debts and obligations so they were really kind of in some financial shit still had over twenty thousand dollars in income over and above all of their debts and bills. How on earth could they not have possibly made that work. That's that's almost two thousand dollars a month over and above what they used to pay their bills to. After they paid all their bills they still had two thousand dollars every single month. I just i simply do not understand how they were having such financial problems that they had to declare bankruptcy on top of all of this. Massive death of family was in from credit cards student loans and medical expenses. Chris was also having an affair. Being a co worker nicoli kissinger in continuously emailed and texted her. They spent time together even went on several vacations. Together they went skiing. They went hiking a couple of times. They spent quite a bit of time together. there were several posts on non nicole's facebook page that You know showed them pictures of them on. The ski slopes and chris had his arms around her and they were kissing really seem very very happy. I'm kind of surprised that you know. Knowing that he was he was married that she would post this kind of stuff to to facebook. Chris was also actually planning toll nicole that he was planning on leaving shannon to be with to be with her which of course only further fueled their relationship and made them you know she was almost kind of this fantasy escape for chris in you know he could he could be with her and pretend that his you know the troubles in the financial problems in the continuous arguing and things that he had washington. They kind of go by the wayside in in. He could kind of escape from that in and be be away from kind of the drudgery in day to day. Life of responsibility that he had at home shannon's prince nicholas in amanda. They shannon had expressed concerns of infidelity to them so shannon had kind of been suspicious. You know for a while before the murders christmas kristen shinhan's marriage was not in a good place. When all of this was going on again they had all of those. You know mounting financial debts and all of these other problems started to have sexual problems and things. You not surprising that you know with the affair and everything like that. That a lot of chris's sexual energies and sexual attention went to nicole. Instead of shannon shannon complain constantly about chris's lack of interest in her sexually and how focused more on working out then on her and the kids. Apparently chris recently lost quite a bit of weight and had this kind of new lease on life so he was almost. Were going through. Kind of this stereotypical midlife crisis. Where he started to take a lot of interest in himself in east eating. You know it used to be about two hundred and forty two and fifty pounds which was quite a quite a bit of weight and so he started working out and started really kind of shaping up his life in getting himself really a lot more presentable with again one of the very big sign that you know your spouses cheating if they start to take this renewed interest in their appearance and in how you know how they look to the outside world and how they might be attractive to members of the opposite sex. Even the police had mentioned that chris's recent weight loss look suspicious. When men begin to focus on their appearance. That is usually pretty strongly indicative of an affair. It's also probably didn't help with finance confidence. In their relationship and further fueled her suspicions that something was was not bright. Something was going on. I mean shinhan recognize that. This is a pretty big sign. You know he. He had never really been that focused on his appearance before and this complete drastic change in his behavior in his demeanor and in how he was beginning to present himself to the world and he started really focusing on his appearance in getting losing a lot of weight and starting to build muscle news trying obviously to become much more attractive to two other women shinhan caught onto this and notice this and it really really bothers her a whole lot. Chris corsino initially denied all of these allegations shannon confronted. Him you know is there. Someone else are you. Are you sleeping around. Are you having an affair. And of course. Chris denied it up and down and never really know gave any of that. Closure that peace of mind that that she probably needed You know he should have manned up in just admitted that you know. I'm not happy here or you know the you know..

"From the earliest days of the case. Ever since Shannon had been reported missing members of the public were fascinated. Perhaps because the Watson's live seemed to be an open book Shannon's facebook profile was public. She gave everyone a window into their world even people who never met her could feel like they knew her. It seemed unthinkable that this perfect family could have met such a horrifying end beyond Shannon's social media presence. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation was remarkably transparent about their work on the matter on November. Twenty second two thousand eighteen. Just a few days after Chris's sentencing. The bureau released its case file to the public. The file contained over two thousand pages of detailed notes reports and interviews relating to the murders for true crime fanatics. It was a gold mine of information. It invited people from all over the world to study and speculate on the Watts. Family tragedy. Crime Blogs reddit groups spring up to discuss every detail of the case for some Chris. Watts emerged as a sympathetic figure. Which meant the view Jeananne as the villain? Some thought Chris was telling the truth in his first confession they believe Shannon had killed Bella. Cc and not cress. They felt Chris. Watts suffered from post traumatic stress disorder which caused him to snap. They claim the disorder was caused by prolonged emotional abuse from his marriage to Shanahan. They circulated conspiracy theories questioning Sh- man's character digging for evidence that she was liar and a criminal. This kind of victim blaming is not uncommon after a tragedy doctor Sherry Hamby. A professor of psychology and founding editor of the psychology of Violence Journal relates victim blaming to the just world hypothesis. She explained. It's this idea that people deserve what happens to them. There's just a really strong need to believe that we all deserve our outcomes and consequences those who blame Shinhan for her own murder targeted. Her family with online abuse. Her Father Frank Ru Sak released a statement saying our family including John and her children and our grandchildren have been ridiculed. Demeaned slandered mocked in the most vicious ways. You can imagine we have been subject to false accusations. Fake facebook accounts hate speeches and a constant stream of ugly evil insults and attacks. Every time we turn around there is someone trying to capitalize on our tragedy by spreading false rumors and outright lies about Shannon and our grandchildren. The abuse was heartbreaking for a family already. Mourning others didn't outright blame Shinhan but they still tried to deflect responsibility from Chris some theorized that he wasn't himself at the time of the murders. They suggested that vitamin supplements and energy products had pushed Chris over the edge. Chris frequently used thrive products sold by Shinhan as a sales rep for lavelle. Chris had appeared in dozens of social media videos promoting these products but he later said that they had some negative effects including insomnia at one point he talked to investigators about using the dual burn patch for weight loss stating. I just know I felt different. I could go longer and longer each day and that was probably a bad thing. I don't think I was probably sleeping more than three hours a night. Chris also said his parents had received letters from people all over the world warning them that thrive products are not FDA approved and that they contain stimulants and could have mind altering properties. Internet commenters and bloggers seemed obsessed with the idea of finding some excuse. That could explain Chris's behavior. It didn't seem possible that Chris could have gone from the typical family man to a cold blooded killer overnight. But even though Chris's action seemed to defy in some ways. They fit a horrendous pattern. In many ways Chris matches the profile of the family. Anaya later a type of murderer who kills close family members in quick succession. These types of killers tend to be white men in their thirties. According to former FBI agent Brad Garret Garrett added that Family Anaya leaders are often motivated by a sense of losing identity. Thirty-three-year-old Chris Watts had nursed resentment for years about the way Shenice and controlled him eventually. This rage boil to the surface. Dr Neil Webb Stale. The Director of the Family Violence Institute at Northern Arizona University spoke about the watts case in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. He said some cases involving very violent controlling batters who are misogynistic who engage in lots of acts of domestic violence up until the time of the killing at the other end of the continuum. You're looking at more controlled. Repressed depressed individuals who may be on the edge of a psychotic break but this sudden break isn't necessarily spontaneous. Fbi Agent Garrett said that family and neither leader crimes are often premeditated the anger leading up to the murders often builds up for weeks or months beforehand but while these individuals may spend many hours contemplating murder. The usually don't put a lot of careful planning into their crimes. They don't often think of future consequences when they carry out the murders. Instead according to agent Garrett they focus on the immediate need and gain of the moment these men often confess after the but sometimes create an alternate version of what happened as Chris did eventually however Chris repudiated his former lies in February of two thousand nineteen. Chris sat down for an interview with the investigators who had handled his case in the interview. He gave a full confession to the murders. He emphasized that Shannon was a good mother who would never hurt her children. He told investigators he didn't want anyone to bash finance memory. He wanted to clear her name and give her parents closure by speaking out. Kris spoke until his throat was dry. He talked for hours. It wasn't something he wanted to do but it was something he felt he had to do. He had to share everything to get the whole story out. Perhaps his confession put an end to all the speculation and the gossip may be then the fervor would finally go away and his family could stop reliving. This hell Chris spoke flatly about the last morning with Shannon and the girls he hurt his own voice recounting the horrors but his mind and body felt somewhere else. He still couldn't feel the weight of it all even after months of prison. He wondered if it would ever fully hit him or if he would remain like this forever detached from reality perhaps he had permanently destroyed. The part of himself that was capable of confronting the truth. Perhaps he was better off without.

Strife doctor after conducted twenty year study surveying forty-nine couples about their family relationships at the end of the study.

She breathed easier. Maybe it was a mountain air or maybe it was the chance to escape. From the stresses of normal life. The trip was good for Chris to he could be such a homebody. He hardly ever made time to go out and meet. New People if you asked him who is best friend was he'd probably say his father. Shinhan thought it was about time he left. His Comfort Zone tried new experiences and left old things behind after all. That was what marriage was really about. Getting a fresh start embarking on a new adventure just the two of them together after the trip twenty. Shinhan desperately wanted to move to Colorado. She thought it would be good for twenty-six-year-old Chris to get away from his family whom she called possessive and controlling. Chris's mother made it clear that she disapproved of Shanon and the move but Kris told her he didn't care. Shannon was his family now within a few months. Chris was hired to work at a Ford dealership in Longmont about thirty miles north of Denver. Colorado early thousand twelve staying with Shannon's France while they figured out a more permanent arrangement. Shinhan joined Chris about a month later she was able to secure a job at the same Ford dealership in the sales department. People at the dealership. Like the couple Shannon's boss. Greg allure called her sweet as can but he also noticed something else in a later interview. He said that Chris was very passive. Shannon was very aggressive with him bossy. Do this do that telling him what to do. Dominating the relationship. Many of the couples other friends and family saw the same dynamic an action. Chris always seemed to follow. Shannon's lead even Shannon admitted that Chris didn't like confrontation psychological researcher and clinician. John M Godman conducted a study on sixty married couples in which he measured the vinyl signs of spouses during a verbal disagreement. He found that men had higher pulse rates and elevated blood pressure compared to women he theorized that men have a lower tolerance for marital discord because they feel physiologically overwhelmed by it. They therefore may be more likely to avoid conflict rather than address it. This can be dangerous. According to Dr Goldman in an interview he said having a conflict free relationship does not mean having a happy one there are conflicts that you absolutely must have because to give in is to give up some of your personality. Chris often complied with John's wishes. Thinking it would make life easier in the short term. He didn't realize long-term Toll. It could take on his psyche even so christened. Shannon's relationship dynamic didn't give their boss Greg any cause for concern. He said they were just an everyday American couple. Greg had no way of knowing that that couple was under an enormous amount of emotional strain stress. That would only get worse after they said till death. Do we part.

I can't handle this. The press gets my news. Like what like what's GonNa Happen to me? What's my job GONNA be like? Never show my face again in public. Lazy Dog Yeah Not. Welcome back to the Lazy Dog. Unlike it is true doglike lazy dog like it's true like she cannot. She was staying with some family member. That like inched. Hurl concern was like are people going to find me and they were like well. We don't even know where you are but if you're staying with a family member it's probably only a matter of time. She was only concerned about herself throughout this whole thing as if she was like public enemy number one at any point. It's that whole like someone GonNa kill me. You're not special even you Nicole. Who's at the center of this whole thing? So she's starve room show. She's the victim here roly but maybe she thought she was playing at. This was a good way to play it but What's the end game for her? I mean it's misguided. Was it a good way to play it because she can has. I think that she is trying to distance herself from the situation makers of seem more caught up in it because she despite the fact that we now know that she'd been googling. Shinhan for like a year before she ever got together premiums. She made it seem like she didn't know until they were like eating for a week or so that he was events still in a relationship she had trouble saying her name like herden true. Here's little Tian so there was a friend of Chris who we can only take that so far like that only means so much. But he said that Shannon's mom pronounce her name. Shannon and that Shinhan made it as AJ apostrophe an instead of Lake S. A. J. An which is I think just regular out. She spelled it. She made it that after her. I think she was divorced so like after her first divorce or I like major relationship part lake. Pardon me if I'm wrong I do believe she was. This is her second marriage. She added the Apostrophe as yeah new me instead of sham is unsure of sand It gives it a little flair touch. Id Edie Edie knowing sewer back in the investigation room and the table is set up with four chairs and the tables up against the wall. The shorter end of the table. And Tammy is sitting across from Chris at on the sides facing basically towards the door away from the wall and then when Tammy comes back and she says John. The seat that she was in the new detective whose name I think. She says his Chris at one point. But I think it's like detective. Tom Addy now officer. Conrad Officer Conrad. Okay so see. I think his name might have been Chris too. Because there's like to Chris's into Nicole's on this story okay. That would make sense. 'cause when Tammy comes back and she's like. I brought Kristen and so okay so officer Conrad Basically comes up to Chris you sitting on the opposite side of the table from Tammy and says to him. Can I sit next to you? Which makes Chris Watts down a seat? So this is a classic. Psychological manipulation is making the person that's being interrogated feel like the physically literally box. I can't I mean I would like to think that after all of the video I've watched these things that I would killa like. I would like to think that I would stick that landing like I would just kill it. I'd be like ought not. I'm not boxed in I would go to psychological place but like it takes a real. It takes a real calculated person to get that far. So you can't. It's so hard to be. I was in a bally's a- bally's gym. This is twenty twenty five years ago but I took a free tour with a buddy and they they got me in the Gallison. The office and it was like the guy they were trying to sell. Us membership. It was the guy behind the desk. And then he's to other muscleman and they they basically just bullied us into joining bally's and thankfully I was smart enough to look at the contract and see that I could get of it. You know but like they were not letting US leave that room until we signed up for a year membership. And it's very hard eight hard not to join. Not only are you joining bitch but like try to counsel that you literally short of Calling Your Credit Card Company and reporting fraud leg. There is like it is so difficult to quit. It's like when you call. Time Warner Herb. Whatever and you say like I WANNA cancel my cable and they're just like how about free cable for a year with all the movie channels scenario like Ra fine and like. Meanwhile you're paying for that box every month or whatever aid is it is such a scam and such a rocket and honestly those thrive tactics that's true. Mlm shot think the manager gets like. Do you think that they do it? By like how many memberships you can get a month and then you get up the at bally's for example I mean. Yeah it's I mean it's it's it's a good question it's hard courts are har- sales but like but but so much less right right. You know I was twenty two or something. Crazy like yeah. We all have such high hopes swimmer. Joining gyms I remember. Oh sorry go ahead no I was just GONNA say. I don't think I currently belong to a gym in where I work. That's very reasonable and very accessible. But I haven't joined one. I've never been the Tour since the bally's incident. That's where where do you. Where's your office now? Bearing Riverbank. Okay as you say. The classic is that Gold's gym in Hollywood gun. The classic like affordable. Slosh like I know for my gay. Bff It's like kind of market but like it's like a hipster me market. No weird like are you a Hollywood gay working out or are you like a dad or are you. Just some random guides steroids or like or using local girl like me. Who's lost joined the gym like I. Okay todd I joined the L. A. Fitness by the Klay. Like you always have such great hopes for yourself right like I when I got my job at Uber Girls. Oh my God I am like fucking killing it in my new. Corolla and I am going to drive to York. Lay and I'm GONNA get that L. A. Fitness membership right next to the are not going to be my life. I'm just GONNA go see movies at the arclight and go on buyer. Okay so I join and I joined partially just because they have a pool because I love like swam. That was my growing up the the best workout for your body rates so I was like. I'M GONNA join the LA fitness by Join I like go and like bring my gym bag that day to work out for like an hour. I was there for like thirty minutes and I just. I can't handle being watched because I have really long limbs and I know everything I do. Looks fucking awkward. Like I need to work out like in prison like I need to work out. Place were known the fucking looking at me right and so I turn around after twenty minutes and I quit the gym. I was like hi just joined like an hour ago. I WANNA quit. I got out of it and that was probably the easiest only way you can get in and out of gem contracts as if you quit after being there for half an hour show them if you get up there and they get to see you look. I tried the elliptical and in front of all these people. I'm freaked out and I WANNA go home bio Lipton ice tea but from that Fuckin- vending machine for a lead in that. That's all you're gonNA get from me but I will say that is a nice con to run legged if you if you have a credit card that can like pass the test. You're GonNa get that refund on the first day maybe driving around. La and joining different gems for twenty four hours. Maybe there's something in that absolutely think about encounter Munari if nothing else. I do WanNa tell you about this while we're on the topic of Amway which we talked about three hours ago I have found a great way to do Amway Amway Extreme couponing now. I found out that a lot of women in this is my my thought. It's Zemo joining like Amway. I have found out that. There's these extreme couponers that coupons so hard and get so much free stuff that they have like weekly yard sales where they sell all of the dial soaps and all of the whatever house to their neighbors at lake three two to three dollars cheaper than they sell it in the store and the neighbors come out like crazy. They're buying the soap and all that stuff in all of this stuff is are things that they basically got for free bonding I think that. That's the most brilliant idea in America if you're going to spend all that time like doing the facebook recruiting people from high school. I spent all that time doing that. You gotta just extreme coupon. Yeah they there's shows and their shows now right that have been on. God's found out about that. The yard sales is not so smart because they always show people like basically doing disaster preparedness. But like like. Yeah hoarding and then having to front throw out like or whatever. Yeah that's yeah. I mean that almost almost makes it worse while I mean if you've got to throw forty hours a week and something ilise may get something. We're almost definitely going to be profitable. Yeah Oh yes have. You seen the Lulu Arro- shed lakeview vice. Did a documentary about it. It's like this company where you just buy patterned dresses and leggings and Stephanie Web. No say kind.

You could be very successful at this if you got in the right time and you had that exact personality like this isn't some for someone who thinks they can mold themselves to be that like you. Just have to be unnatural. Cheerleader effortlessly. Like life of the party Miss Congeniality like that has to be you in order to do well at this and she had that I think for sure whether it's false or not like it feels like in the greater scheme of things in life or you like is that woman on facebook selling me stuff really my friend. No but she's like a long warmth I I believed her real Shannon. I think that she was actually very passionate about this. And also I thought the actor sold it So the neighbor comes knocking on the door. Lets herself in Welsh? Name was doing her livestream. I love that dynamic right away that you sat up of just the neighbor that sort of lets herself and Zuber's and she's like what's this about baby number three like she has no fucking time for any of this shit which is what so true about Real Life Nicole. Atkinson that I stand like I actually am A. I'm a huge. I would do anything. I'd pay ten thousand dollars at a charity lunch for two to meet with my girl. Nicole Atkinson. I think she's everything. Yeah I see. I was confused when we talked briefly over email when you mentioned the coal And and I thought you were talking about Nikki. Nicole Nicole cast and Jerry the mistress and so I was like I was taking what you told me over email about Nicole and applying it to the other Nicole. I kept thinking this is adding. This doesn't seem like molly like this. No but I was just like why was just kept waiting because you were like the way. They portrayed her like I don't know but anyway but now it was April. Teluk is the name of this actress and I want to say that. She's like serving me. Lake almost like Kathryn Hahn levels of Lake Sidekick movie moments where I'm just like she's so bible and Jennifer coolidge like One because I mean this picture also of her on her IMDB's iconic. She looks like she's like backstage at A. Wwe event like shifts unbelievable. I love her. She's great so she's like by the way Chris has been looking great lately. Inchon's all like yeah you know. He's he's really striving striving he's lost a bunch of ladies feeling good about himself. Can you believe that the Chris Watts we knew once had as an extra sixty five pounds on him I can? That's hard to. It's hard for me to Magin Him Chubby. She wouldn't have been Chubby but Chubbier soft. I can't I dunno Chris Watts's ripped so she's excited to show her new option and found this new APP that keeps track of all of your credit card charges. Just in case your purse gets stolen and then that's when they get in the dig about Chris spent was she's like let's be real like you can track your husband through that. I'm GONNA keep forgetting her name. Amber Amber in the movie. Okay so because I want to call her by her name just to make sure that Nicole Atkinson gets do absolutely isn't confused with our our villain so she says that they're going to be in North Carolina for six weeks her and the kids. She's going to get to see their families do some relaxing. Chris is GonNa join like halfway through. That seems like a lot to me for a newly pregnant woman to bring her to kids across the country and be away from her husband for three weeks even at her parents house so she has her friend to take video for her. She needs to make a father's day video for Chris. Yes this this was a red flag. Red Flag I mean as I sincerely goes. It's odd to have your friend do it? It's like a show like she. She could have done that. She films so much on our own anyway. She could have been by herself making a father's Day video for Chris. It was like a very impersonal personal message. I think she really believed it. I also just don't understand why it had to be video because there's so many ways to say this. I know for me the last thing I would want like if it was like a boyfriend or I've never I've never been married so I don't know that deep bond but I can imagine it would be the same. I would never want like a video of my boyfriend telling me he loves me. I won't like a Card Lake. I would feel so uncomfortable watching video cam you personally. I want my husband to join Kamio Kamio from another celebrity like a third tier celebrity. Telling me that my husband or being celebrities do you want me to refer you on Cameo I can give you a cameo code and people can order cameos from you. I'LL ZIP it right over. I'm on there. I only charge thirty bucks. I really don't have much say to people and I'm sure they don't want to hear from me but it's really it's really once you're in you're in baby. Hey Look I'm certainly bucks ability. Seven people bought cameos for me. Then it must be the easiest business in the world. Watch like I sound like. I'm selling a pyramid scheme right. Now get three other people to you under you also hard to find people to Cameo you do get your referral code. But it's hard to find people that feel like they need to join Cameo. Yeah it's it's Yeah I think I would have to sit down and think about it for a little bit So she says video. Hi Chris I just wanted to say that we are so blessed to have you in our lives and you do so much for us and you take such good care of us and you're the reason I was brave enough to say to agree to number three. You're so incredible and we're really lucky to have you our lives happy father's Day so I'm almost like infused if this is like creating proof that he wanted the third baby. Oh Wow I'm I'm just I just don I don't understand why else is needed to be filmed again. This isn't like a criticism but I'm just looking at the highlights of what was said in the video and I feel like in this. I only exist. Yeah yeah so I mean I think I don't actually know if I've seen this but I believe I feel like that's a strange thing to fabric. Okay so Chris and Shan go out on a date that night. This is going to set up a little bit of their dynamic tough to watch. I thought I this I mean it was. It was rough it was. I thought this restaurant I was by the way like a half upscale. Dining plays have sports bar. And then I realized it's there in the doubletree restaurant and that's the strive conference behind Oh I did not even. Wow So. They're having this like sort of a tiff which will here in a moment. Right in front of the thrive family. So things were messy. I think she. She says hydrocarbon people off camera. And I thought I'd just thought like. Oh she's you know she just. She's very sociable. She knows people. She's trying to get like constantly trying to get customers so she's just. Yeah no I actually. I agree with you. I think because it is probably true either way. I think she plays well in town. Really she's someone that would know people at the local restaurant. No matter what I watched it the first two times I watched this. I thought that was like a half Dave and buster's and that we were sort of seeing like rolling lands or something pollution hitches. That's it looks like and I was like. Is he facing the screens? I'm like is this asshole. Watching football during dinner turns out. Just strive conference. I also want to say you guys won't be able to see this but imagine it. Shenanigans Wardrobe I include was. It was like she bought around being able to show her patch a lot of cold shoulder tops and like tops with cutouts and we could always see that patch and of course with thrive much like my patch that I used to help cure my lazy I. When I was a child my mom would draw like big bird or whatever I wanted on there for the day. Those thrive patches are for style honey. They have Cheetah Leopard Neon tie-dye Lake. They consider any sort of aesthetic. You may have. And they think they're cute with their Pasha's fresh or the very first shot of her. I thought she was wearing bedia. Sam like a bondage gear just for two seconds. Because the way it's cut. It's like these straps straps and then the the big old psychedelic thrive patch on the arm. She she did love an off the shoulder top and I actually do think it's Kinda sweet that this is what they interpreted date night outfit. It's like same. T shirt is home but Sparkley All right let's play ten. Oh five to eleven thirty four you so sixty.

"They disappeared the watts family seemed like the perfect family of four going on five but now all hope of seeing them to get want my head Nicole deleted text between herself and Chris in the first place what was she trying to hide well her explanation was simple she said she was grossed out out by Chris after finding out from news articles that he wasn't separated from his wife and Shannon was pregnant when she disappeared so understand what she's asking you believe now is that she only learned this when she read it in the newspaper she hadn't clicked on her she hadn't gone to her instagram she hadn't gone to her facebook she hadn't any investigation at all he just told her at work I'm separated getting a divorce just waiting for the paperwork to go through and she said okay she didn't look she didn't check she didn't do anything that takes nothing more than a click of a mouse we know she knows how to click that mouse because we know she clicked it about mayor raid man says he's leaving his wife we know she collected about getting a wedding Dan we know she collected about other things but never clicked it look into his current living situation. I'm sorry I have a hard time with that but we'll come back to that so what did she deleted well it was mostly just lovey-dovey back and forth Chris might have been shy and soft spoken in real life in cold disconnected when texting his own wife. But in his conversations with Nicole he comes across like a real life Romeo or at least a Don Juan Wanna be some of the recovered text messages from s. two Nicole read as follows hope you had a great night beautiful miss you get home safe sweet dreams my sexy gotta Chris sent that text message the evening of August eleventh two days before he brutally murdered Shat in and his two innocent children and it seemed Chris also wanted Nicole to see the best in him he sitting cold this text about his character I'm about loyalty truth wholeness and being dedicated I don't like playing games and less it's role playing wink face Emoji I'll give you a minute to throw up in your mind south it's interesting that Chris points out that he's all about loyalty and truthfulness when he's deceiving both his wife and his mistress according to her apparently you can tell he's lying when his lips are moving he's lied to his wife lion to his mistress maybe he's lying to himself but when somebody starts telling you that they're loyal and truthful and dedicated only thing that's gonNa make me more nervous than that if they start telling me they're a deacon in the church coach when people just start urban this up unsolicited talk about red flags is like a navy flag on the end of the deck that's just how odd you said is to me arguably one of the most telling tech's Chris sent in the cold during their mini communications was this Chris rights be being in your life is something I crave here's why that one is important to study this wasn't a man saying he craved sex with this woman plenty of affairs are purely physical they're just about lust know what Chris was saying was he wanted to be in this woman's life but did Chris S. crave being in Nicole's life enough that he felt like he needed to erase his own that he felt like he needed to erase the family he had in his current life everybody has asked the question if he wanted out so bad get a divorce wanted out so bad just leave abandon them anything is better than family annihilation why would you do that why would you have to do that if you don't want to be there leave but a narcissist sees things only from their point of view and understand from his point of view if he can just a radical these people from the face of the earth then a he becomes the victim Oh poor Chris B there's no alimony there's no child support there's no legal fees in fact it could turn into a profit center awhile Shannon the girls were visiting her family in North Carolina Chris was keeping busy working out trying to look his best and wooing his mistress with racy text and love letters he was loading country and reggae songs by Nicole mushy greeting cards with giant hearts all over them in one handwritten letter Chris wrote.

in the family Chris Watts well he just isn't acting the way you would think a distraught husband and father would under the circuit stances up to this point all police had to go on was a feeling a feeling that this father wasn't frantic wasn't crying Oh he just didn't seem worried you have to allow for individual differences when people are in crisis there is certainly a range a range of human behavior a range of human emotion that you expect when someone's family early their loved ones those that they should be heavily invested in are in danger or Mrs and he just didn't seem to be anywhere on a continuum of what one would expect even allowing for individual differences we talked last episode about how both police and the media almost immediately turned their focus towards Chris and it's easy to see hi between his suspicious actions leading up to and following his family's disappearance as well as his seemingly cold behavior Oh Chris did all the criteria for a prime suspect add to that the fact that when you look at statistics takes in this kind of case over ninety percent of the time it turns out to be the spouse so there is a huge pile of mounting evidence that's causing beliefs and media to take long and hard look at Chris Watts but now Chris had agreed to take a polygraph test four police rush he did really to no one surprise he had failed seemed like the moment of truth was about to come police were finally closing in on Chris he was in the interrogation room he had failed a lie detector test there was no more running away there was nowhere to run investigators were on the edge of their seat ready to pounce they knew the man across from me knew more than he was saying about the disappearance of his family and they wanted to hear it they wanted to know what happened and they weren't to know it now because there was that small hope that sliver of optimism that maybe just maybe against all odds they were still alive Chris Watts who on the outside seem like the perfect husband and father was about to be exposed as anything but you're listening to the devil beside me Chris want story husband father killer was about to thick police knew they were teetering on the edge of something big they wanted a confession and they knew they were close to getting one but first Chris would reveal something so damning that it was hundred percent confirmed to investigators that they were on the right track what was it you guessed it a secret mistress waiting in the wings and Chris had been promising and planning to start a new life with her I'm not much on coincidence to begin with but even if I was I was following this story this was way outside the bounds anyone that tended to believe in coincidence but this affair could this be the nail in his coffin was this motive you did Chris's new love cause him to want to get rid of his old one and do so at any cost was he narcissistic enough to believe leave that he just wipe the slate clean he could start fresh no complications of divorce no child support no problem if he could just get rid of everybody he could just start over fresh Kris told police he had met another woman at work who he admitted had quote taken his breath so now Chris has not only failed a polygraph test that directly asked him if he was physically involved in Shannon disappearance and if he knew her current whereabouts he also handed police a giant clue on a silver platter that he had been carrying on an extra light though he thought hey I'm better off to bring this up on my own for maybe he was trying to buy himself some time I mean after all he had just failed a polygraph about his missing wife and daughters maybe he was trying to divert attention away from the more important matter the whereabouts of his family and get them to look at the salacious detail of an extramarital affair think about it when Oj went on trial what did the prosecution open up with did they open up with hard and fast facts about the murder no they opened up with circumstantial evidence about the fact that he wasn't a good husband they sacrificed primacy with the jury 'cause you see the process futian gets to go I think about when you were a kid and you and your siblings were playing and somebody knocked over a lamp what came to your mind I get to Mama before anybody else because the first one to tell the story was riding on a blank slate if you've got to mama before they did and got to tell your story before they did you had a much better chance of being believed and getting out of trouble and when you look at what happened in the Oj case if that had hard and fast evidence about his murderous behavior they would have talked about that but they didn't they talked about the fact that he wasn't a good husband so maybe without realizing what he was doing Chris was saying look if I can I'm talking about the fact that I'm not a good husband if I can get him talking about the fact that I'm having an affair if I can get them talking about that that will give me time to do a better job of covering my tracks maybe he wanted to move the bodies maybe he wanted to do something to create more of May's because he was narcissistic enough to believe that his story what he had been telling himself was going to sail better than it action we did as you've heard me say your story goes a whole lot better when you're the only one telling it but when people start asking begins even a narcissist figures out pretty quick. Yeah this isn't going over quite like it was when I was telling it to myself in the car so maybe he was buying time investigators didn't go for the deflection they tried to guide Chris back to their main prize already locating Shannon girls and locating them right now but despite them putting the pressure on him for answers Chris still maintain that they were at the house when he left and that he had no clue what could've happened to them police knew that the only way Shannon in her girls Have left that House on August thirteenth was in Chris's car no one had been seen leaving the House that day except for Chris and we know that because it was appeared on a neighbor's surveillance camera that just overshot their property and just caught the driveway the garage the traffic pattern of the ars at the watts residents eventually after hours of questioning that seemed to go nowhere Chris asked to speak to his father running now let's think about that and put it in context for many as I said Chris naively narcissistic -Ly an immature seem to believe if he could just wipe the slate clean what he would ask any questions does one week they would be there next week he would move somebody else in and everybody would just go oh well okay that's how a narcissist this things they look at it from their point of view and their point of view only that's how immature and emotionally underdeveloped. Chris Watts was so it was no surprise when a grown man says I won't speak to my daddy dislike a kid getting in trouble I want my mommy but here wasn't when I want my mommy it was I want my daddy the wheels were coming off and they were coming off fast and he was immature in his coping mechanisms were cratering fast and he said I won't daddy he said is ready to share his story but he wanted daddy there because daddy make everything okay they were more than happy to oblige ride his dad entered the room and every word was captured on video surveillance in the police squad room where there is no expectation of privacy This would be Chris Watts first confession but it would be far from his last the story Kris told he admitted he he had killed his pregnant wife Shawan but he claimed he only did it in a fit of passion because he was enraged when he discovered that she had murdered their daughters let's just take a listen to what Chris initially confessed to his father listen carefully to how he tries to Walk a careful line of saying yes I killed her but it was the moral high ground. This was a moral high ground act.
