BREAKING: DA’s request to seal autopsies of Shanann Watts, children DENIED

The Weld County District Court has denied the prosecution’s request to seal the autopsy reports for Shanann Watts and her children, who were killed in August, siding with the argument presented by a group of media advocacy associations.

In a court document filed Friday, the court denied Weld County District Attorney Michael Rourke’s request to seal the autopsies of 34-year-old Shanann Watts, and two children, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste, saying it lacked “subject matter jurisdiction” on the issue. – Times.Call

Now we await the next move from the Weld County Coroner’s Office. Will they file a separate action in court to keep the autopsies sealed?
