    I still think he's lying and hiding under the cloak of God and religion because it doesn't make any sense and it never will and I think we will never know the truth from his lips unless he says he was a selfish bastard looking for a new start with his mistress, which eventually would have ended up in horror as well because based on evil!!

    Bravo. You have so eloquently summed up how I feel. Thank you.

    I honestly didn't think I could feel worse about this case, even if I knew the supposed finer details. Turns out I was so wrong. I have felt sick all day. Oh Bella, my heart breaks. Shanann's family and friends, my heart breaks. It's just awful and I am sickened to think CW might be getting off on drip feeding this ****.

    Yep. And he said Bella was supposed to start school in a week and was on a playdate the day she was scheduled to start. In addition to being a psychopath he’s also quite the idiot.

    I don’t think he’s getting off on this.

    He killed his family because they were in the way, and not for the pleasure out of doing so.

    A serial killer for instance, would enjoy reliving his crime. He would also enjoy the notoriety.

    The psychology is different here.

    He likely wants to be seen as doing the right thing.

    He’s not trying to cause pain, although that’s exactly the byproduct he will produce.

    Was Bella supposed to start kindergarten the Monday they were missing? I remember him saying Bella was supposed to start school the next week.

    Was her kindergarten going to be at the Primrose school or at a different school?

    Thanks, I'm a little confused about the school thing, but there's no confusion in my mind about him being a psychopath and an idiot.

    For the Aussies: the release is due at 2am Melbourne time.

    Though I’m not sure how long it will take for anyone to upload it where we can all access it of course

    I know he did, but was she actually supposed to start kindergarten the Monday they were missing? That's what I'm confused about.

    No I don’t think so, I think she was just going to daycare (at Primrose) that day, while the Kindergarten classes began the following Monday.

    That was my understanding anyway, I could be wrong

    Yes, they were supposed to start the day they went missing, at Primrose.

    And yes, he did say they were supposed to start the next week, but that was a lie.

    Haha, yes there are so many confusing things in this case, but CW being a psychopath and an idiot is definitely not one of them!

    Just when I think I understand the school thing, I find I'm confused again. I just don't like to be confused and it's not anyone else's problem but mine - lol.

    From above:
    “This sick f*** enjoyed scaring her. He did it on purpose.”

    This automatically reminded me of the doll pic.

    Maybe he was trying to scare them. Maybe he thought it was funny.

    (Thank you, JEM1975. Yes I do remember you from some other local cases. It’s extra disturbing when it’s local. All the visual reminders, etc.

    PS: I’m never going to the Lazy Dog. I wouldn’t be able to concentrate, let alone eat!)

    —-

    Mass Guy, jumping off your last sentence “He’s not trying to cause pain, although that’s exactly the byproduct he will produce.”, he would had to have known that the content of his revealings would add an excruciating amount of more pain on the family (if that was even possible). I know LE wanted to talk to him and he’s “found God” and all this stuff, but something bugs me about this. I don’t really know what I’m trying to say here.

    Let me put it like this. Did he think that coming clean would be in the best interest of the Rs, was this a consideration that he thought they should know this truth? The Rs of course deserve to know the truth, but was the truth in their best interest?
    I don’t know how to explain my thought right now. :(

    Maybe he didn’t think about any of this one way or another. And just answered LE as directed. We will see today if he even mentions the Rs.

    ETA: To any grandmas out there, I wonder if you’d rather not know. Maybe this will be addressed on DP Monday.

    Christopher Watts Murder Case: What Drives a Man to Kill His Family? – Rolling Stone
    March 6, 2109

    [...]
    In the larger context of family annihilation cases, Watts’s case is somewhat unique. For starters, there is no evidence that he tried to take his own life after killing his family, as most family annihilators do. “The person who does it feels like they’re sparing their family from eminent financial harm or ruin or embarrassment, so they kill their family and themselves,” Berrill says. In fact, mere hours after their disappearance was reported, Watts appeared on local TV to plead for their safe return, and his web history reveals that he was happily planning a relationship with his new girlfriend, Googling jewelry and secluded weekend getaways.

    Websdale believes this behavior may have stemmed from Watts’ belief that he could get away with the murders. “I think the fact that he didn’t commit suicide…may speak to this aggressive, narcissistic kind of personality, which says that he thinks he may be able to get away with this,” he says. “It speaks to the fact that he’s very very much self-centered and [felt] entitled to do these things.”
    [...]
    While he hasn’t revealed his motive, judging by the prosecutor’s report that he had argued with Shannan about wanting a divorce shortly before the murders, it seems that he was simply driven by a desire to start a new relationship with another woman, without being burdened by his family. “He [likely wanted to] preserve his right to pursue a relationship he wanted to pursue, and ideally without being incarcerated,” Berrill says. bbm

    I believe the OP is referring to one of CW's alleged affair partners that said she met CW on craigslist.
    You are correct that SW met CW after Facebook friend referral.
