  1. Is that an actual photo of Watts’s cell? I recall he read a paperback involving murder which many found inappropriate, but I never heard which title/author it was.

  2. I read about this in the documents. Wasn’t he written up for taking this book when he was only allowed a Bible? Interesting though – you’ve found the book title.

  3. That doesn’t look like such a horrible little sanctuary to reflect on why you’re in there. It’s about the size of a Pod 51 hotel room in Manhattan I stayed in. Granted it caters to hipsters and you weren’t locked in it. 🙂 How many hours a day is he locked in that cell? Anyone know?

    • I think it looks kind of cozy. He was supposed to be in 23 hours with 1 hour out but soon, if not already, he’ll have more time to participate in activities. He has a monkish side to him and with books, prayers, group therapy, snacks, meals, letters, phone calls and visits, I reckon he’ll do just fine.

  4. Soon the Watts home will be sold. It looks as if no one wants to shovel the snow off his driveway. Phil Spector’s castle went on the market this week for 5.5 million. It’s been touted, likely by Realtors, as “just another mansion with a past”, and “warm and inviting.” I really don’t think so. Maybe it’s been upgraded, but pictures of the interior and the way Spector lived look beyond creepy. He collected odd objects and things, and guns. Watts might feel comfortable in his cell – much like the cell-like feel of his basement accommodations, smaller now, but with a single bed. At some point he will be allowed to take classes. He says he wants to help other inmates but how. I don’t think he’s had an epiphany yet, if he ever does.

    • I think the epiphany is on its way; he has a multitude of time in which to think. I believe he’ll help others. He’s got that quiet way about him that puts people at ease. Agent Lee seemed positively giddy and flirtatious in his presence.

      • Interesting point CBH, this was something I was contemplating the other day when listening to the interview; do you think the agents actually ‘like’ Chris Watts? Are they just playing the part to build a rapport? It then led me to imagining how I would be in his presence, I just don’t know, can you like someone that has done something abhorrent?

        • Due to the kind of work they do, they can hate the crime but love the criminal. Detectives have admitted to growing fond of serial killers, and yes, I believe they do like Chris.

      • He’s among his peers now – murderers, con men, thieves and liars. He can keep living an inauthentic life and might have to in order to survive in prison. But help others? Not in the way Doris Tate helped prisoners. After Sharon was murdered she spent ten years in a mental fog and breakdown. Then she pulled herself out of it, went to every one of Tex Watson’s parole meetings, and started teaching prisoners that they had the power of choice. Watts is still not copping to what he did, not really. And honestly I don’t think time to think is going to change him at all.

  5. Maybe the guard wants him to reflect on what he’s done.
    Or, he’s buddied up with a prison guard, sneaking him good reads.
    What’s next? Can they do that?
