Chris Watts, who was convicted of murdering his wife and children in 2018, is currently serving a life sentence in Wisconsin. However, this has not stopped women from contacting him or visiting him at the location. According to Daily Mail, Watts has picked up “female admirers,” two of which say they have visited the Colorado native in prison.
As part of HLN’s new docu-series “Lies, Crimes, & Video,” which Daily Mail exclusively obtained a first look at, the public is able to learn a bit more about what has transpired since his conviction.
One of the women who currently makes trips to visit Watts agreed to be filmed for the show. Anna, as she referred to herself, divulged how he speaks about his late wife, Shanann Watts. “When Chris talks to me about Shanann, he talks about how great she was and how much he loved her,” she said. “Chris feels like he had a break in reality like he snapped, like he was demon-possessed.”
A second woman, who called herself Kate, did not wish to appear on camera. However, she did state that she too visits Watts in prison two to three times a week.
Additionally, the docu-series shines a light into his communication Watts and with his mother, as the show reveals a letter that he sent to her for her birthday. The correspondence comes ahead of what would have been his daughter Celeste’s fourth birthday.
“I’m still a Dad! I’m still a son! No matter what. Now, I can add servant of God to that mix! He has shown me peace, peace, love and forgiveness, and that’s how I live every day,” he wrote, adding that he believed he was a “changed man.” Watts also said that he wished he could be home “with everyone” to celebrate her birthday, but that they would have to instead settle for him being there “in spirit.”
The television show also revealed voicemails that his former mistress Nichol Kessinger had left for him in the weeks prior to the murders. “Hi, it’s me. I miss your face. Call me when you can, I guess,” she says in one while giggling.
During the affair, Kessinger would pose for Watts while wearing bikinis and the two would secretly find ways to meet up. He had also confided to her that he wanted them to begin a new life together. Since Watts’ conviction, Kessinger has moved homes, changed jobs, and stated that she had no previous knowledge of the murders. She has also said that she is “ashamed” of the affair.
Watts’ interaction with people outside of his marriage also included interactions on the dating app Tinder, according to Daily Mail, as at least one man and women have come forward to say they had sexual encounters with the convicted murderer.
The “Lies, Crimes, & Video” episode about the Watts case will air Saturday at 8 p.m. EST on HLN.
