The chilling case of the "Monster from Denver" shook the peace in Colorado, United States, during 2018. Chris Watts, who strangled his wife Shanann and suffocated their two little girls, 3 and 4 years old, received a life sentence for the multiple Murder of his own family.
Two years after what happened, Watts celebrated her 36th birthday in confinement plagued by segregation, contempt, and with the bit of comfort of "pen pals."
Chris Watts is in protective custody at the Dodge Correctional Institution, a Wisconsin maximum security prison. There is "a real danger" for him in the company of other inmates, a source told People magazine. "He killed children. There is a defined hierarchical order in prison, and someone who hurts or kills children is in the background", he explained.
The 36-year-old man is considered an outcast, which means that he is at the lowest level of the prison hierarchy. Not even the security guards interact with him for his crime.
Watts's activities are limited to 23 hours a day, as he can barely go out for a bath or exercise. The magazine revealed that he has a Bible and several family photos that keep him company inside his cell. However, one of her most constant hobbies is corresponding with friends. It's true can do right soon," the authorization said.
According to investigations, the man had an extramarital affair with a co-worker who thought he was divorced. In the middle of the separation with Shannan, Watts strangled his wife and took her body to an oil field, later suffocating their daughters Bella and Celeste, 4 and 3 years old.
Although the latest messages from Shanann, revealed by American Murder, suggest that she had no idea that her husband would strangle her. People assure that day before her death; she expressed to one of her friends the concern about her marriage.
She was 15 weeks pregnant when she was killed. Just a few months earlier, in May 2018, she had shared the news with a video in which she wore a shirt with the caption: "Oops, we did it again" and showed Watts breaking into a smile upon learning of the pregnancy.
By then, the now-convicted man was already in a relationship with Nichol Kessinger. He told him that he was sure that the baby was not his. However, the theory of infidelity by Shanann was ruled out by the authorities.
Now that he is behind bars, Watts is forced to spend Christmas confined and despised by everyone in prison. "I used to be a big fan of Christmas: decorating the house, spending time with the family. And you know 100% that it will never happen again, and that's your fault. He is in a hell of his own making, "said the anonymous People source.
Everything indicates that Watts will appeal his sentence because, according to the source, he is still a young man with a challenging experience in prison. "Live like this for the next 50 years. It is apparently a doom more harmful than death," he said.
