Nickole Atkinson told the cops to come check on Shan’ann because she had diabetes, as well as lupus

The strange thing about knowing more is it often raises more questions. Take this excerpt from page 552 in the Discovery Documents. Nickole Atkinson, when she alerted the cops told them Shan’ann had “known medical conditions” that included diabetes.


Interestingly, Nickole also went the extra mile to actually go to the doctor’s office [apparently in person] to check whether Shan’ann was there. She was told directly that Shan’ann had never showed up. Then she literally tried to get into Shan’ann’s house, not only via the front door but via the garage door. She even had her son looks inside the small square garage windows to see if Shan’ann’s Lexus was inside. And then they were preparing to break down the front door when Chris Watts swooshed in.

Interestingly, when the cops wanted access to Shan’ann’s phone and banking details, Chris Watts plead ignorance of both. He said [and this is nuts] he had the password for the bank but couldn’t remember the username. When he said he had no clue what Shan’ann’s password was for her phone, Nickole came to the rescue again – and allowed officers to see that there had been zero activity on her phone since she arrived home at 01:48. Incidentally, this further supports the contention that she was murdered IMMEDIATELY upon arriving home.

If they’d argued over any period of time, one can imagine her contacting someone, including her mother and best friends on Facebook.

If Shan’ann did have diabetes, and Nickole seemed pretty clued up on many aspects of Shan’ann’s interior life [including her OCD], then it shows to what extent Shan’ann really wasn’t the picture of physical, mental and marital health she was portraying so exhaustively on Facebook to her Thrive flock.


If Shan’ann had been more honest – transparent is the better word – and acknowledged her husband’s unhappiness [rather than the opposite], who knows, she might still be alive today. Chris Watts HAD to have figured that Shan’ann’s online fairy tale about him was, in a real sense, his best and most enduring alibi. And let’s face it, initially it have many of us confused if not fooled altogether1_Chris-Watts-Shanann-Watts

    • Possible that Nickole was going by information Shanann had given her. Shanann allegedly had diabetes, lupus, and fibromyalgia – these three combined could have had a more debilitating effect than they appeared to have. Watch her videos and you see an energetic woman with near perfect skin. (No lupus rash – although not everyone with that disease has the rash) She spends time in the sun on her vacations. The “health” bars she consumed list two g of sugar, but listed elsewhere on the ingredients list is 12 g of “sugar alcohols”. “People with diabetes MISTAKENLY think that foods labeled as “sugar free” or “no sugar added” will have no effect on their blood glucose. Foods containing these sugar alcohols need to have their calorie and carbohydrate contents accounted for- po in your overall meal plan, as it is carbohydrate that raises blood glucose levels. Since many people typically overeat “sugar free” or “no sugar added” foods, their blood glucose may be significantly elevated.”

      There is no way of knowing for sure if Shanann had all these illnesses – possibly she did. If so, she was supremely lucky as lupus and diabetes can be life threatening, and fibromyalgia is a dreadful, painful condition.


    • Perhaps…If I was that concerned about my friend I would have done the same. Or maybe Shanann had gestational diabetes. Either way, she is a hero in my book!


  1. Yes gestational diabetes is a temporary condition during pregnancy.

    Nick In reference to what Shan’ann did after arriving home…my eyes are red from all the reading I’ve done amongst this document dump, but I did read something and I’m curious if you saw it. Don’t ask me where in all those documents, or who wrote it or texted it, can’t remember, but I read Shan’ann tried to make a purchase online at 2:30 AM and her credit card was declined. Can’t recall the item but it was not expensive. If I run across it again I’ll let you know, but my point is that she would’ve been alive at least until 2:30.


  2. Or that Chris was the one who had diabetes. Further down in the text from 1405 Sandi describes Chris’s strange behavior with the children in particular during his trip back to NC but then on p. 1409 in her p.s. states “the only reason Chris got fit was because diabetes runs high in his family and Sha’nann wanted him to live forever.”

    • Chris may have made his decision to kill the children as early as the trip to NC and was detaching from them so he could approach the murders with a cold heart.
