    The difference now is we have a defendant who is telling his story about what happened. He has not been found guilty so since he is the only witness and he says Shanann killed their two children then we have to allow discussion on whether this is true or not. If a member wishes to believe Chris Watts is telling the truth then we must respectfully let that person express their opinion as long as it is within TOS.

    Please alert if you see a post that violates our terms of service. It is not a violation of our TOS if someone expresses that she/he believes Shanann murdered her children. Until we have a guilty verdict or until Chris Watts changes his story we will allow discussion on this topic.

    Thanks,
    Tricia

    Hey Everyone,

    A bit of clarification.

    Please, no more discussion on the viability of Shanann's company or whether her company was or wasn't a pyramid scheme. No more digging up documents or complaints or anything to do with the function of the company. The fact is Shanann's company is not what we are discussing.

    If want to discuss if job stress may have contributed to Shanann and Chris' relationship problems please make sure it is in the realm of reality and not the Twilight Zone.

    Thank you,
    Tricia

    I am posting the evidence we know of again as some have asked. If anyone has other evidence to add please copy and add.

    Evidence of triple murder:

    1. Dad claims he saw a blue child on a baby monitor at night.

    2. The coincidence of two people, unrelated by blood, both reacting to something in a short span of time by losing their minds and committing homicide, defies reason.

    3. The coincidence of those same people both committing homicide in the exact same manner -strangulation- is unlikely.

    4. A father passionate enough with love for his children, to kill at the sight of them being harmed, would be desperate beyond reason to save them. But:
    a. Dad failed to call 911 to try to save his children. Even if he thought they were beyond help, a parentslove is so intense they will desperately and irrationally try for help that will never come.
    b. There is no account of him throwing off the mother and working desperately to revive them or resuscitate them. Hell, total strangers have performed CPR on a child's corpse in rigor. (Cooper Harris case). But a passionately loving dad didn't even try in this case?

    5. The dad failed to call 911 after killing his wife in a supposed fury of emotion.

    6. Dad also failed to run screaming onto the lawn for help or in anguish.
    In cases of such Greek tragedy magnitude either 5 or 6 usually comes into play.

    7. This entire scene - the "emotional argument", the vicious strangulation of two children, the father witnessing the incomprehensible and reacting with murderous fury and anguish - all of it was totally silent. Except for the poor dog howling that night. How do we know? Because the houses are in close proximity and neighbors mentioned hearing nothing but the dog the next day IIRC.

    8. CW did not scream or wail in anguish so great that it caused him to murder his wife. Not one report of such sounds.

    9. CW supposedly lost his mind in grief and anguish. However he regained it in moments in a manner that does not comport with a true mental break. In cases we have seen where people lose it and commit murder, they are typically either wailing on the lawn and to 911 operators or they are in an apparent psychotic state- not lying about what happened, not covering it up, not able to function normally at all. See thumbnail of Julie Schenecker as an example of what this looks like. Police interview Julie Schenecker after kids found dead

    10. CW, after such an insanely, horrific Greek tragedy of a scene, calmly loaded up the bodies of his wife and children in order to conceal their deaths and dispose of them. We know this because a neighbor stated she witnessed him leaving. (No reports of wailing and she said, IIRC, the truck drove normally. So no veering, spinning of tires or other signs of lack of composure). And it's apparently on video.

    11. CW, a man passionately in love enough with his kids to erupt in murderous rage when they're harmed, did not attempt to give them a burial that comports psychologically with the love and bond parents have with their kids. Death Rituals Reported by White, Black, and Hispanic Parents Following the ICU Death of an Infant or Child
    A Global History of Child Death

    12. Instead he dumps them in two separate vats of oil. Not together. No way to commemorate their lives. Concealed. Discarded. In a manner that veers from any known traditional burial rite of any kind.

    13. CW went to work and monitored the ring video of his house. After the horrific Greek tragedy he just endured. He went to work. And monitored the video of his front door.

    14. CW left a few voice messages and sent some texts to the wife he knew was dead, thus calmly concealing what happened.

    15. CW calmly called SW's friend after she came to the door and he saw her on the ring video. He asked what was going on. We know this because he stated as much and this is corroborated by the friend.

    16. CW rushed home - blowing stop signs and with beating heart, according to him- when CW came to the house and expressed alarm. The first time we have heard of a hint of emotion on his part since the horrific murders of his kids supposedly by his wife and his heat of passion killing of her, occurs when he the authorities are about to get involved.

    17. CW cooly lied to the friend about where SW was supposed to be that day and why she wasn't at home. After he lost his mind the night before. He is calm and able to work to conceal those events.

    18. There is not one hint of brief reactive psychosis or drug induced psychosis in CW's demeanor and behavior since 5:15 am the morning of the deaths, nor the next day as he gives calm and detailed interviews to the media. His pupils are normal. He is not slurring speech. He does not have a vacant stare. He exhibits no delusions or paranoia. He is not showing emotional lability. (I'm no expert in psychology but have seen a few psychotic people due to psychotic breaks or drugs and it's easy to research).

    19. CW shows no anguish, depression, grief, concern, sadness or despair during his stoic media interviews, despite having supposedly been so deranged by his passionate love for his kids that he killed their attacker. His eyes are dry. Not red. No signs of puffiness from weeping. His face is smooth and calm. He looks well rested. No bags under his eyes. He smiles. He grins. He smirks. All with the knowledge that his insane wife savagely murdered his precious babies causing him to lose his mind with anguish. And with the knowledge that the people he loved so fiercely it caused him to kill, are rotting in separate vats of oil.

    20. CW calmly and continuously lies to the media about the whereabouts of his dead wife and dead children.

    21. CW systematically works with LE to track down his wife and kids. Brainstorming. Supplying numbers and addresses. Calling people. All the while knowing they are dead and decomposing.

    22. CW is questioned and lies about having an affair. A motive in many murders of wives.

    23. SW was pregnant. (A circumstance present in vast numbers of murders of spouses or parents by men).

    24. Some people and report that CW seemed distant with his wife and kids in the weeks leading up to this monstrous event.

    25. CW was not hospitalized for any reason after this tragedy.

    A couple of things from the CO model jury instructions:

    D:01 DIRECT AND CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE—NO DISTINCTION

    A fact may be proven by either direct or circumstantial evidence. Under the law, both are acceptable ways to prove something. Neither is necessarily more reliable than the other.


    E:03 PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE, BURDEN OF PROOF, AND REASONABLE DOUBT

    Reasonable doubt means a doubt based upon reason and common sense which arises from a fair and rational consideration of all of the evidence, or the lack of evidence, in the case. It is a doubt which is not a vague, speculative or imaginary doubt, but such a doubt as would cause reasonable people to hesitate to act in matters of importance to themselves.

    Isalybra,

    Thank you for joining us. I know that it is a painful time for you and other friends of Shanann. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I don't mean to overload you, but these are things I'd like to know if you are to able to give us information:

    1. Do you know where we could find a floorplan of the Watts home? Does the housing development have a name, so we can look for their floorplan online?
    Can you look at the2 attached floorplans and see if they are correct? I may have the girls' bedrooms wrong. I don't know which patio option.

    2. Are there low windows on the side of the garage that Nikole's son would be able to see Shahnann's car inside the garage? Or could it be that the garage's front roll-up door
    wasn't locked? Is there an outside side door to the garage that could have been unlocked? (There is one in the floorplans below)

    3. Do you know where the Amazon Echo was located in the Watts home other than than the kitchen? Was there more than one Echo? If so, where were they located? Alexa could have recorded the murders.

    4. How many flat screen TVs did the Watts have and where were they located?
    I ask because smart TVs, especially Samsungs, can eavesdrop and record the audio inside your house. The TV(s) and Google Voice on Shanann's cellphone could have recorded the murders.

    5. (Was a question about Dieter that has been answered)

    6. I'm confused about the day and time at whch the neighbors 2 doors down heard Dieter barking in a terrible way as if he had been injured. They said they called the police for a wellness check and everything was ok. Do you know what day and time this happened? Was Dieter still in the Watts house when the cadaver dogs where searching the house?


    7. RE: Financial stress. There has been a wide range of speculation about what kind of
    salary Shanann was earning --- anywhere from less than $20,000 up to $80,000 and beyond. Can you give us an idea of what she actually was making (not including the
    car allowance)?

    8. Was there any indication that their home was in danger of foreclosure by the bank
    (not HOA)?
    Did Shanann's mom co-sign the current mortage?

    9. The health of Bella and CeCe seemed very fragile, due to much more than just nut allergies. Shanann had a category on her Pinterest page titled FMF that included pins about Periodic Fever Syndrome that affects children. Did Bella & CeCe that's why they had surgery in March to remove their adenoids and insert ear tubes? Did the girls have frequent health crises?

    10. How many baby monitor display screens did Shanann have and where were they located? Were they split screen so you could see Bella's room and CeCe's room
    at the same time? Were they color or black-and-white? Did their baby monitors
    record or upload via wifi to a Cloud? Do you know the model number or name of the Summer Infant monitor that the Watts owned??

    11. Do you know if their Ring doorbell would record the vistor on Shanann's cell phone or Cloud whether she answered the alert or not?

    Thanks so much!

    (Apologies to WS posters if these questions were discussed earlier. I've had trouble keeping up due to the time zone difference and thread lockdowns.)

    @BelleIsle Wow. I didn’t even think about the fact that if his story was true, he would have still been responsible for the death of his unborn son.

    I’ve viewed this case as the majority of us on here have, that he killed them all, and made up a ridiculous story to cover himself.

    I didn’t even consider that aspect, that even in his scenario, he killed his unborn child. Chilling.

    That is another thing that makes me disbelieve his account of what happened.

    If he really did see his two babies die, right before his eyes, why would he kill his unborn child in the next moments?

    He could have stopped her by shoving her, pushing her out of the door, etc etc. Tying her up, knocking her out, etc. He didn't need to kill his son.

    From AB 9/10/18
    1. Canines tell quite a story.
    2. During CW interviews on porch. You can hear, off camera, CW consenting to canine search.
    3. Not uncommon for suspects to agree to canine search. They believe they’ve cleaned up sufficiently, but you can’t hide scent.
    4. Expert explains dog barking inside CW house.
    5. Dog barking can mean they picked up human remains scent. Where they bark in a certain place in a house, they’re picking up scent in that location. Dogs can tell them where something is or isn’t.
    6. If bodies were in house for short time will scent be there? From the moment a person dies there is death scent, but it takes time for the death scent to overpower live scent.
    8. We don’t know what the barking in CW’s house means, depends on how dogs were trained, or if they were even cadaver dogs.

    Well, that was a waste of 20 minutes!

    Regarding the dog segment on AB, neither Ashleigh nor the dog handler on set knew for certain that the dogs at the Watts's home were cadaver dogs. These dogs very well could have been dogs who search for missing persons. I found the segment a bit on the sensational side.

    If new members want to state that they believe SW killed her kids; Then please state why. You don't have to be a verified insider to give your opinions.

    I am believing law enforcement.

    I am taking what family, friends, and neighbors say with a level-headed, non-emotional grain of salt.

    I am ignoring what acquaintances, high school classmates, past honeys, wannabe friends, non-verified people who put themselves out there, and trolls have to say.

    Somebody close thread 19–Jesus.

    Long day and hangry. Now going for dinner.

    Report and delete my post, I don’t care (ha). Rebel.

    AB 9/19/18 (cont.)
    1. Baby Monitor. SW’s January’s diffuser birthday video clearly shows the baby monitor displaying images on night stand. CW said he saw goings on in bedroom on that monitor.
    2. Size of image is so small it’s really hard to determine what’s going on. There are red and green lights that change when there is movement in room.
    3. Monitor has scan feature that automatically toggles every 8 seconds.
    4. Images in nighttime mode are black and white. Even if lights were on, it’s impossible to see blue skin color.
    Questions from viewers
    1. What happens to house? CW can sign house over to interested family members.
    2. Explain unlawful termination of pregnancy. CO doesn’t have murder charge for unborn fetus. But this law means he terminated pregnancy without lawful authority.
    3. Could CW have dug grave before killing SW? Doesn’t seem likely.
    4. Will Defense use SW’s Lupus against her meaning that having Lupus would lead her to do things she wouldn’t normally do? Very thin, wouldn’t use medical condition that the victim allegedly has, wouldn’t put much stock in it, if you blame the victim you’re in trouble.
