    Just caught up reading the last thread. Gitana1, thank you for explaining the technicalities of the law and how defense attorneys work. It has been really helpful. Love your posts.

    Can someone explain why the Denver media blurred out the parents' faces after not blurring them out, but the article linked above shows the mother's face? I'm confused, but I've missed a lot of posts (lots of breaking news on the forum today).

    I've never seen that blurring done unless it was a victim of sexual assault or an undercover cop or someone who really needs their identity kept secret.

    It was bizarre, as their faces were not blurred out in other news broadcasts.

    I haven’t been able to find out their reasoning for it.

    CW pled guilty. What is she hoping to accomplish with all this whining?

    "Chris Watts’ attorneys blocked his family from any discussions with him about his decision to plead guilty to the murders of his pregnant wife and two young daughters, his mother told 9NEWS.

    Cindy Watts said she and other family members were told not to correspond with her son or speak with him – edicts she told 9NEWS were handed down by his court-appointed public defenders.

    “We were denied contact with our son, from August through October,” Cindy Watts told 9NEWS. “When they called us down to Colorado, they said we were going to discuss the plea deal with Chris, and we were never able to do that.”

    They said in one of the clips his family didn’t want to appear on camera. At least that’s what I remember hearing.

    Ha! That’s rich.

    Hard to believe that a guy who could treat the bodies of his family like that, and calmly lie on national television, could have any involvement in the murder of his children.

    The delusion is strong with those people.

    She wants him to go back and change his guilty plea. She wants some defense attorney to step up and represent him. She thinks the public defenders have forced him into this. Insanity.

    I've been wondering about that too! I'm starting to wonder if now the Watts' requested it after the fact, after public backlash from their interviews.

    This is such a mess now. I fully understand at this point why Shanann made references to getting away from "drama" in her home office video. And I can relate, even though my husband's family isn't NEARLY to this level, just apathetic.

    These interviews are incredibly eye-opening!
