A Closer Look at the Other Man in Nichol Kessinger’s Life – Jim the Geologist

Highlighted in yellow in Nichol Kessinger’s Verizon call log [below] is an unusual entry at an unusual time. It’s a one-minute call to someone in Milwaukee at 06:16 on the morning of August 13th, roughly when Chris Watts was arriving at CERVI 319 with three dead bodies in the rear car seat behind him.

Although Jim Gutoski is not named once in the 1960 pages of discovery, Kessinger’s friend Charlotte Nelson is.

Gutowski and Nelson are mutual friends on Facebook, and like Kessinger, Gutowski has been educated in geology.

Jim Gutoski had a profile on LinkedIn associated with Sunburst Consulting, however it’s since been removed.

Kessinger refers to “her buddy” at 1:52:10 in the clip below, and off-and-on describes how she knows Jim, but begs the investigator not to involve him or ask him any questions for the next five minutes of the conversation.

    • I noticed that but I think that’s another one of his attempts at humour as he seems like the jokey, larrikin type of guy.

      Sociable, educated, intelligent, worldly, humorous, extroverted & confident is what I surmised from details about him in this post. The POLAR opposite of Chris.

  1. Just where is Jim from? I live in Florida and Collier County is in Naples, Florida, I used to live there. Stetson University is also in Florida but it’s a law school. Says he graduated from Stetson in 1980? High school in 1976? That puts him graduating law school in 4 years? Extremely rare! And why go to law school to be a geologist? Something hinky about his profile!

    • Yes, she is a homewrecker. Think about it, she knew cw was married right from the beginning. Most people who fool around with a married man have no respect for themselves or other people, you know what kind of girl she is. Of course she’s going to have backups ,and if you notice I didn’t say backup I said backups.


    • In the new confessions he says he was at her house everyday that Shannan was gone funny he comes to town the day after she is supposed to get back. Or was it an unplanned emergency trip to help a friend and thats why she doesn’t want him involved


    • Ikr? My guess is that the gas and oil industry pays them well and they reconcile their own beliefs by thinking their work is to minimize the environmental damage done by fracking. The gas and oil industry spends a lot of money to convince their Republican friends (hunters and farmers tend to support environmental conservation efforts too) that this is in their best interest. Creating jobs and pouring money into the economy is a pretty strong motivator/argument in the many ads they run. But to support the science-isn’t-real crowd really takes some mental gymnastics.


  3. Jim honestly looks gay. He’s in pics with another man, and dressed feminine. That was obviously Nichole’s gay best friend. Maybe he had something to do with knowing the plans.


  4. When Chris is talking to cops it sound like he said he threw something and she wasn’t supposed to be there ..If I’m right maybe when he went to the basement to pack he was mad and picked up something and tossed it across the room and it hit his wife and she said she was calling the police and he grabbed her,then the kids cause it was not fair to them cause some other place on the tape he says this..


  5. If Jim phone is registered in Wisconsin and he’s in another state it will still appear she called Wisconsin. Just like when she calls Chris while Chris is in Colorado but the billing shows a North Carolina number. Jim was coming to visit her on Monday which is why she called him.

    NK called him twice on Monday, at 6:16am and at 3:32pm.

    He arrived at her place on,about or after 3:45pm on Monday August 13, as she reported to the cop in the video.

    • Take a look at how many calls she makes to Jim in the rest of her phone records, from 13th Aug through the verizon detailed billing she gives the cops (Discovery) Is he CW’s replacement?
      Interestingly, the ONLY time her voice shows any nerves, and quavers – is when she first mentions Jim in her police interview …
