COLORADO (state) — Wife called her husband to be her “rock” and also “the best dad that they could ask for” in what appeared to be a perfect life on social media. But the social media is off and we stay with a different picture which ended with her and her daughters’ lives this week. Colorado homicide investigators are now building a case against her husband.
Shanann Watts and her husband Chris were in a deep financial strain. Chris is accused of killing her and their 2 daughters.
Almost 3 years ago, they filed for bankruptcy, citing more than $70,000 in debt, according to the local news.
They had a combined income of $90,000 in 2014. But they also had tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt.
Colorado homicide investigators have arrested the husband.
On Wednesday, Chris Watts, 33, was arrested and held on 3 counts of 1st-degree murders. The accusation includes killing his 34-year-old wife and their daughters Celeste, 3 and Bella, 4.
The body of the woman who was also 15 weeks pregnant, was found Thursday. Anadarko Petroleum, the company where Chris works as an operator, owns the property.
There is no immediate information about the motive of the incidents or how the 3 were killed.
On Monday, Shannan Watts and her children were first reported missing – just days after returning from a 6-week-trip to visit her family in NC.
The FBI and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation launched a massive search for the three joining in on Wednesday.
During one of the interviews with Police Chris lamented to her reporters how much he missed them, saying he missed telling her daughters to eat their dinner etc.
Hours later he reportedly confessed to murdering his wife and 2 daughters. Police subsequently arrested the man, and they’re preparing to throw the book at him.
