Colorado Mom Shanann Watts Allegedly Killed by Husband Chris Watts Gushed About Him Online
Chris Watts reportedly confessed to killing his wife and two children.
A Colorado woman who was allegedly killed by her husband had recently gushed about their relationship online.
On Facebook, Shanann posted at length about her bond with her husband.
"I love Chris! He’s the best dad us girls could ask for," she posted June 19, together with a screenshot of a text message showing a picture of an ultrasound.
Shanann and her daughters had been missing since Monday from their Frederick home. On Tuesday, Watts gave an emotional interview, pleading for his family's safe return.
Asked if he had argued with his wife before her disappearance, he cryptically replied, "We had an emotional conversation," and declined to elaborate further.
By Wednesday, Watts had reportedly confessed to the murders of Shanann, Bella and Celeste, telling law enforcement officials, "I killed them all."
Police said Thursday that they had found Shanann's body at her husband's workplace and have "strong reason" to believe they know where the girls' bodies are.
Watts is being held in Weld County Jail, where he was booked on three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of tampering with physical evidence. He has not yet entered a plea.
He appeared in court Thursday, where a judge ordered him held without bail and told prosecutors to formally file charges by Monday afternoon. He set a Tuesday hearing to review the case.
