From the CW interview tapes: CW: Closure, you know, I mean my parent still think, I told them I plead guilty for a reason. And I told it to them and when they had that video phone thing Colorado the day before I plead guilty. Like I plead guilty for a reason. I didn’t just — I knew other people were watching I didn’t just go in and be like, just say anything, like they seemed to take it okay.. Tammy: What made you do that, Chris? What made you plead guilty? CW: I didn’t want them to go through this for two or four years. I didn’t want my attorneys to lie for me for four years. I mean, they would have done anything I told them to do. I don’t see how they can do that, that’s what attorneys do, like they take their defendant and say hey what happened, okay we’ll go with that story. Like I told them everything I just told you guys and it’s just like they got together well if they ever offered plea deal would you ever want it? Just plead guilty to it? I’m like, yeah, If we can end this, end this. Back in September I told them that. Tammy: Really? CW: Yeah but, it was way too early and prosecution was still doing their investigation, grabbing evidence and all kinds of stuff. That really wasn’t on the table. I think it was around Halloween that’s when the prosecution went to Frank and Sandy and Frankie’s house and was talking, if we could end this would you be open to that? And that’s when the whole death penalty all of that conversation happened. I guess they were surprised that it would just be over.. .. CW: I mean I told John and Kate and Sophia and Amy (his attorneys) if we can just stop this, I know everybody’s telling me to fight this, there’s not enough evidence for this and that and I’m like, “No”. Honestly, this needs to end. For Frank and everybody to have to fly back to Colorado every single time and get reminded of this, I’m sure it’s never going to go away, but to have to come and talk about it, have other people talk about it, have, you know, all three of you get on the witness stand and say what they saw, what they’ve seen, what they heard on tapes and everything like that…I don’t want people to have to relive that over and over and over again for years. Like, if I could just end this for everybody and there was any closure at all they could start then instead of 2022, that way it would only get worse…for everybody. Tammy: So did it have anything to do with you not having the death penalty? CW: No like honestly, when I was sitting it that cell, I felt I should die.
