    Yes, and IIRC, her autopsy had bruising on only one side of her neck and her hyoid bone was not fractured which would also make sense with your scenario.

    "I didn't want my attorneys to lie for me for two to four years ... They would've done anything I told them to do," he said. A few weeks after his arrest, Watts said he confessed to his attorneys that he killed his family. Watts told investigators he doesn't regret taking a plea deal, but had not thought he would be in prison for the rest of his life.



    Wait a minute...Is he saying that his attorneys would have lied for him? Because I am pretty sure that is illegal and can get one disbarred.

    They 100% do NOT feel sorry for him. They're just very, very good at their jobs.

    I guarantee they're disgusted by him and view him as a bizarre and disgusting creature that is necessary to analyze.

    You know, I don’t know whether to believe this account he gave or not. He added such detail, it makes it hard to dismiss. I can’t let myself trust a liar’s words completely. If ever there was a doubt to ANYONE if he’s a human psychologically, the detail here should prove that to be false. (I know we on WS have NEVER doubted that he’s an evil “pod person”, but I’m just making that point.) I’ve barely scratched the surface of these new docs. Just throwing my .02¢ in. jmo

    Yep. I wonder whether he knew that or not and if the public defender's will have something to say about it? I know their policy is that they don't talk about cases...

    Chris Watts gives gruesome details about how he murdered his wife and 2 daughters in a newly released interview with investigators

    [...]

    While his guilty plea assumes guilt for all three murders, he had previously said that he only killed Shanann after she smothered their daughters.

    He finally assumed responsibility for all three murders in an interview with investigators last month, from the federal prison where he's serving his three consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole. INSIDER obtained transcripts and audio of the interview from the Colorado Bureau of Investigations on Thursday.

    In the new interview, Watts gave a distressing blow-by-blow of the morning of the murders, and said he regrets the decision every day.

    [...]

    Watts said there's a part of him that feels like the idea of killing his wife was "implanted" in his mind and he "had no control over it."

    During the trial, when a prosecutor said that it takes two to four minutes to strangle someone, Watts said he wondered, "Why couldn't I just let go?"

    [...]

    He said he then wrapped Shanann's body face down in a bed sheet and dragged her down the stairs to put in his truck.

    [...]

    When he came back inside the house, Celeste was waking up in her bedroom, so he took both girls and put them in the back of the truck on the bench seat. He said each brought a blanket, and Celeste brought a stuffed animal.

    At that point, he said it felt like someone else had control over him.

    He said he put a gas can into the back of the truck because he felt like he could kill himself at the oil site where he worked and planned to dispose of Shanann's body. Ultimately, he told investigators he decided not to go through with that plan because he feared he could hurt more people if something caught fire at the site and exploded.

    [...]

    At 3:31 in the interview, he tells them that he looked up the lyrics to Metallica’s “Battery” because NK told him she liked the song and wanted to know what it meant.

    That is odd.

    I'm at the part where he is saying he thought about doing himself in, but didn't want to hurt anyone else who was in the area of the oil tank site.

    There weren't ANY people in that area, were there? It's in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Anyway, it's amazing how fast he recovered from the notion of doing himself in, JMO.

    He really, really wants people to think there is something human inside of him and he wants pity. He's absolutely pathetic. All JMO.

    They actually STUDY how to do this and they're so good they have people here convinced that they're actually sympathetic to this creature.

    I think his confession might have something to do with the DA saying he will never tell the truth. Perhaps he thinks offering a confession (riddled with lies throughout) makes him somehow "different" or "better" than other family annihilators. In a twisted way, he sees confessing and reading the Bible as his chance to be a "good boy again".

    His "devil made me do it" confession is maddening and still cowardly but at SW's parents can get some relief from SW's reputation being salvaged.

    Per the interview CW never believed SW plane was delayed.

    He assume that SW and NA were somewhere talking .

    The agent tells him no her flight was in fact delayed and CW says oh.

    Could he have been thinking that she was Talking to NA about him and his CC charges or of a possible affair in general?

    Could he have been laying in wait?

    Just musing and found it an interesting little tidbit....MOO

    IMO, that's an outright LIE. My hinky-meter hit 100% when I heard that.

    Chris Watts Has Photos of Slain Wife and 2 Daughters in Prison Cell: 'Talks to Them' Every Day
    Family murderer Chris Watts speaks every day to photos he keeps in his prison cell of his slain pregnant wife and two daughters, according to his February confession from inside a Wisconsin prison.

    Watts, 33, also told investigators from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation he reads a book to his daughters every night, and also reads the Bible.

    [...]

    Watts, who claims he did not plan the murders, told authorities “every time he sees pictures of Bella and Celeste, he doesn’t understand how it all could have happened,” according to a CBI report obtained by PEOPLE.

    [...]

    Watts also opened up about what he claims are his newfound religious beliefs, and what his life has been like behind bars.

    While incarcerated in Colorado before being transferred to Wisconsin, Watts said he was taunted by the other inmates, who “would yell at him at night and would explain to him all the ways he could kill himself in his cell by drowning himself in the toilet or hanging himself.” He said “he didn’t kill himself because he felt like he may have a different purpose.”

    He said he prayed to be transferred to a different facility, and when he was, it “felt like God moved him to [the prison] for a reason.”

    Watts told police he “tries to keep a ‘low profile’ in the prison.”

    I think it's harder to tell what he meant without the full context being present. But doesn't he mean that if he hadn't told his attorneys the truth and instead decided to go to trial that if they'd presented him as innocent in killing the children that they would have effectively been lying for him? They wouldn't have known they were lying, they would have been doing their job as defenders, but he would have known they were presenting a lie to the court and jury.

    YES, and it is clear they are trained to always leave it on a light, good note. Hence the very friendly chit chat even at the end. They don't love talking to this man. They need to always make sure to leave things on good terms in case they ever need to go back to get more information for profiling, further information, etc. It is all an act, people. And that is also why I believe that they are likely not permitted until they have left their career to write books or give interviews. They need to maintain their credibility with people like him to do their jobs. MOO
