    Wow - that video in the second interview. After the newscasters show the clip of CW parents, they talk more about the case and say there is a "letter" that CW wrote to his sister at some point and said, "If anything happens to me, look at my wife," and that the family says that proves Shanann was unstable. That is the first I have read/seen of this "letter." Have we discussed that at all here? (49 threads I may have missed!!)

    ETA more detail: This is also the video where the reporter asks, "What happened to this kid from Pine Forest High School?" showing an innocent picture of CW. And his mother says, "What happened? He met Shanann."

    The newscaster also says in the clip, that the Watts family felt that "Shanann was dangerous and that they didn't even go to the couple's wedding."

    MOD NOTE

    Do not sleuth NK beyond what is being revealed about her in MSM. NK is another of CW's victims. This appears to be a very similar situation as Amber Frey in the SP case and Amber was a victim of SP's.

    Do not make negative insinuations about NK's character or sleuth her family. Remember who the villain here is: CW. CW destroyed his family on his own. NK is just more collateral damage.

    Thank you.

    Thank you. This is exactly what I think. I really can't bear to read one more post that even hints that NK should have googled CW, or should have checked his social media, or should have searched the court records. They had been together for what, 6 to 8 weeks? And she was 30 years old. I've known women 20 years older than that who have been duped by men.

    CW is a PREDATOR. He preys on the weak, the vulnerable, and the trusting. None of the women he dated, married, had affairs with, or whatever are to blame for any of CW's despicable actions. These women are victims. Period.

    Hi Everyone,

    It has been a wild few days right?

    About the woman, Nichol Kessinger, who came forward and honestly told her story of dating Chris.

    Please remember there was nothing she could have found in a Google search or even a background check that would have given her a hint about
    Chris Watts and what kind of person he was. He told her he had a wife and 2 kids. Granted he did say he was getting divorced but that doesn't mean the
    divorce papers could be found online at the time. If Nicole asked Chris why the divorce papers were not online he would have come up with a very plausible.
    explanation.

    I would greatly appreciate if everyone would back off from their negative or judgemental comments about Nichol. She is living a nightmare. She doesn't need strangers judging her.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    Tricia

    Please continue the discussion here and remember the following:

    Do not personalize your posts. Attack the post, but not the poster. Nothing in your argument should be directed at another WS member personally.

    Do not bring rumors from FB here. In particular, do not bring rumors about NK here. NK is a victim of CW's. Don't sleuth her family or her job history.

    Stay on topic and be mindful that you are not power posting. Allow everyone to take a turn stating their opinion on whatever is being discussed. There is no need to answer every single post just because a thought pops into your head.

    Thank you.

    I was relieved to hear Scott Reisch confirm (latest video linked earlier) that there can be no appeal against conviction, with a guilty plea. It makes sense but it was in the back of my mind that he might be able to come back at a later date and say he wasn't given a psych evaluation or some such nonsense, and didn't know what he was doing at the plea hearing.

    So his right to appeal (with certain criteria) only relates to sentencing.

    Not a complete transcription, but here are some comments about CW's interrogation, his Dad, and the airport from Mom's interview:

    At the 8:15 mark:
    CW picked his Dad up at the airport and they drove to the police station.

    "And Chris still didn't say anything to him. Nothing. He had already been interrogated seven hours...and he was going in for another interrogation."

    "The next thing, after five hours, they called Ronnie and said, your son wants to talk to you before he tells us anything."

    Beginning 9:05:
    "So, he was going back to the airport when his public defender called him and told him to come back."

    "So, that's when Ronnie met his public defender. And, so, talked to her for a while and uh, they kept in touch with us and let us know what's going on."

    "The next update I got was Ronnie called Jamie and told them they found their bodies."

    Seattle1 , in regard to the airport trip and the confession, what you stated in your reply is what I thought you said in the OP. I was confusing other details from other posts in my response. I understand now. Thanks!
