    I don’t see the purpose of making a movie. Other then he actual murder/disposal itself, EVERYTHING was recorded!!!!!

    BBM, this part horrifies me every time, the tape of seeing her little shadow run up to him, and him bundling her into the car with her dead mother... why did he carry on and kill his girls??? He has 45 minutes drive to think and stop and he killed them anyway. It literally breaks my heart to think of what those poor girls went through in their last hours. I come on and off this thread, of all the cases I've followed this one just breaks me every time. The only solace I take from it is if there is a heaven, Shanann has her 3 babies with her and he can never hurt them or anybody else again MOO

    Such a beautiful sentiment, not ashamed to admit it made me cry :(

    I wish the victim’s families could at least have a say in whether these books, TV movies or movies could be made by selling the rights to the story. I can’t imagine being a parent and having my daughter and Grandchildren murdered and then TV movies are made from my tragedy and book authors also make money and having absolutely no say whatsoever in it. It makes me sick.

    Thank you to whomwver recommended the YT channel for True Crimes in Colorado. These are really well done and I hadn't known about them before.
    Also finally got to hear that creepy giggling by NK. Seriously, gives me a very incomfortable feeling. That is just not "normal" and has major horror movie vibes.

    I admit to watching this type of show (the Lifetime movie) in the past but for some reason it really feels different with Shannan. I think because of the family's public plea for peace? I admit to having watched the Elizabeth Smart one and Diane Downs...Susan Smith.... My friend in high school acted in the role of the 'rape victim' in another. But this time it's too much for me. Weird.

    I agree with all of the above. And, IMO, this was a textbook case on how law enforcement works. I believe students will study this case for some time to come. I don’t think they could have done a better job than they did, and at great personal costs to themselves.

    RSBM.

    Amen to that. And that, alone, is ample proof that everything the Watts have said about Shanann is false, IMO. The kind of person they describe doesn’t have friends like NA.

    Every single person who has met Shannan said she was a cool chick except for the Watts...even Chris' friends who were tainted Chris' opinions said that she was always nice to them.

    I watch many older crime shows and current ones that do interviews, and after seeing this case and it's video interview, I cringe when they are doing the interviews and judge them as to what they are doing wrong and thinking they could have gotten a confession if only they did what Tammy and the FBI did with this case. Nail them in to an excuse for what they did, then work from there.

    MOO

    I believe it was me who recommended them. I think their series on NK is great. There's another coming! I'm glad you liked them.

    With that delay between the first partial confession and the plea (and discovery), the Watts were able to get their narrative out there with the help of several prominent social media sites who held watch fests making fun of her and blaming her for the murders. But it's hard to rework an early narrative, after podcasts like Murder Rap Sesh (We were allowed to talk about that here and it's gone anyway) became popular overnight and they slammed SW. One of the owners of that podcast even said that the first time she saw CW on the porch interview she thought he was cute and had great white teeth. And, she added, she hated Shanann instantly. (roughly podcast 6 is when the bashing started, and ended with the fake autopsy about 16)

    That is how the narrative got set but now with the help of Cindy Watts' horrible interviews burning SW, I think any interested person knows where the whole "anti" thing came from. And then OMG all my broken pieces. And I think it's faded away, the virulent anti-Shanann sources have pretty much self imploded. (IMO)

    If Sandi really is writing a book, I will read it. I would like to hear more about Shanann the person, growing up, teen, younger 20's. Making a real estate investment at some 23 years, living rent free for several years, and re-selling the house without a loss is remarkable, IMO. In the middle of the deepest housing crisis and recession since the 1930's depression

    None of those people met her thanks to CW. I still can't understand anyone who believed that first confession. Deep down in my soul I know Grandpa Watts knew that was a pile of caca too - and he slipped up in the interrogation room too because he knew the real COD.

    I imagine this must be a difficult day for the Rzucek family. Holding them close in thought and prayer.

    Thinking of you also, @Colorado303. (((Hugs)))

    Happy Heavenly Birthday, Shannan.

    I lit a candle for Shan’ann this morning. I hope the Rzucek family and Shan’ann’s friends are able to take some small comfort knowing there are people from around the world thinking of them.

    I spent the evening reading and watching Youtubes on this case. You think you've kind of moved on and get drawn right back into it. It doesn't feel "resolved" and NK is a big part of that.

    I'm seeing that the Rzuceks will be doing a PC at 4pm today about the internet trolls. It was from Denver Channel, so I'm assuming it's 4pm Denver time, but not 100% sure yet.

    I'm so sad that their pain is compounded. Def makes me feel conflicted as a true crime "buff" to continue to watch the different shows about the case.
