No one believes Chris Watts. We didn’t. The cops didn’t. The media didn’t. Shan’ann, Nickole Atkinson and Amanda Thayer also found it hard to believe he was having an affair. His parents said they didn’t believe his confession either. But one person did believe him. Nichol Kessinger.
According to Kessinger, their affair was “brief” and she barely got to know him. Yet, she believed him when he said he was getting divorced. Believed him. Didn’t she check to make sure?
Now, we don’t know for sure exactly who, what and when Kessinger Googled, nor her precise online habits. We do know she covered her digital tracks and swept away a lot of online breadcrumbs.
This does raise a critical question: did Kessinger know Shan’ann was pregnant and continue with the affair regardless? Chris Watts knew. Did he really not tell her, or did he tell her and they continued their dalliance regardless?
