Chris Watts has revealed how he murdered his family.
And it’s heinous.
He allowed attorneys and law enforcement officers to question him. The interview was videotaped and will be made public later this week.
Since learning some of the details, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the little girls and their last moments on Earth.
They loved their daddy.
They didn’t know him as a scary monster. But he is. More evil than anyone could have imagined. Heartless.
He killed his wife first, after she was sleeping. As he was wrapping her body in a sheet, the oldest daughter, Bella, woke and entered the room. She asked, “what are you doing to mommy?”
He loaded his wife’s pregnant body into his truck. Then he put both little girls, still alive, in the truck as well.
He drove 45 minutes to the oil well site where he was employed, and dumped his wife’s body onto the ground, next to his truck.
His little girls watched.
Then, he grabbed the favorite blanket of 3 year old Celeste, and suffocated her.
Next, he turned to the four-year-old. She pleaded with him,
“Daddy, please don’t do to me what you did to CeeCee”.
Her autopsy shows that she fought him.
I know we live in a “civilized society” (but do we?). In the USA we have the privilege of a humane Justice System.
But some criminals deserve the same punishment they dealt their victims.
I hope Chris Watts is not protected within the safety-bars of a solitary confinement cell. 😡
Shanann, Bella, Celeste and baby Niko,…we remember you.
May you rest in God’s embrace.
