How Shanann Watts’ Friend Helped Stop Chris Watts From Getting Away With Murder
When Shan'ann Watts didn't show up for a doctor's appointment in mid-August, her best friend Nickole Atkinson immediately called police. "I can't get a hold of her," she told cops. Atkinson's quick action may have helped preserve valuable evidence, stopping Chris Watts, Shan'ann's husband, from getting away with the murders of his pregnant wife and daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste. When Watts returned home from disposing of the three bodies, police were already waiting for him.
