Hold your horses. Stop the press. Everyone on YouTube STOP. The professional is here. Well, almost. He’ll be here in about a year. Until the New York Bestselling author’s book The Perfect Father comes out, none of the research, blogs or books that have come before matter. CrimeRocket probably doesn’t matter either. Nothing matters. This does. Because when John Glatt’s book comes out we’re going to get a proper true crime narrative for the first time.
We know because in the description of Glatt’s book [which is already on Amazon], he describes his book as the “first major account” of the crime. The first major account two years after the fact…? Well, I guess that’s still normal timing, normal pace for the proper print publishing industry.
Shall we wait, hold all coverage of the Watts case, until the most credible figure has his say?
Thus far it appears [from the description at least] that Glatt seems to buy into Watts swinging both ways. What else does he mean by “sexual ambivalence”? If Glatt does go down that windy path – good luck.
Glatt also suggests when Watts made his first confession he admitted to smothering his daughters. Oh dear, that part’s not right either.
And his confession didn’t happen less than 24 hours after his plea to media. He confessed at around 16:00 to part of the crime on Wednesday afternoon, August 14th. The media visited Watts’ home on Tuesday morning to record his Sermon on the Porch.
Getting the “True Story” of Chris Watts might turn out to be a lot harder than it seems.
If Nut Gate happened on July 9th, Deeter Gate followed just five short days later. Watts was caught off guard by Nut Gate, and was still sort of finding his mojo in how to deal with Nut Gate, or respond to it, when Deeter Gate happened. On July 14th he was faced with another emotional emergency that distracted him from his wife’s crisis with his parents in North Carolina.
First things first – what was Deeter Gate?
And why Deeter Gate?
Deeter Gate was an emotional conflagration that erupted between Watts and his mistress on July 14th, when Nichol Kessinger visited 2825 Saratoga Trail for a second time. We know from various sources that Nichol was at the Watts home on the 14th, including from Watts and Kessinger respectively.
#6 July 9th, 2018: Nut Gate: “My heart is still racing 30 mins later and tears of anger…” #1yearagotodayCW
Why Deeter Gate? If Nut Gate was about nuts, Deeter Gate was about Deeter.
Nichol Kessinger wanted to be “first” in Chris Watts’ life.
Chris Watts slept in the basement on the last night he and Shan’ann were still together. And in North Carolina they slept apart for the entire week that he was there. In the latest book on Watts, he says he was read the riot act by Kessinger, and that although she said she wanted him to have a chance to sort things out with his family, when it came down it, she didn’t want him getting back together with Shan’ann while he was away.
If we accept this scenario, then it raises the question: when Shan’ann arrived back from Arizona, why would he sleep in bed upstairs? When he called Kessinger for 111 minutes, wouldn’t she have wanted to know the sleeping arrangements? What would he have told told her to reassure her?
At 23:52 in the video clip, Chris Watts is asked about the bed in the basement. Who is sleeping there? He stumbles over whether it was two or three nights ago. Given his spiel, that they were separating, and he was supposedly sleeping in the basement, why would he – on the night of the murders [the disappearance in his story] – sleep upstairs?
It actually makes sense given Shan’ann’s late arrival. All things being equal, had he not intended to murder her, and had they really been in the process of separating, then he’d have slept in the basement and neither of them would have seen each other the next morning. She would not have woken him up [and he wouldn’t have wanted to be woken up], and he would not have woken her up when he left [and she would not want to be woken after sleeping for two hours].
When we go through the Phone Data Review, we can see that the idea of separating, moving and selling the house had been broached before, which is why the spiel is so unlikely that he was desperate to talk to her then, at 04:00, about something she already knew. The reason he’s doing it, and the reason he’s not in his right mind [and why the whole thing doesn’t make sense], is because through this manufactured drama, he’s confirming to Kessinger that:
Through this Watts is essentially waving a wand and granting Kessinger [and himself] wish fulfillment, which makes total sense to him and her, but makes no sense to anyone else.
At 22:41 in the clip below, the officer asks about the children’s medications. Watts says Ceecee takes Singular every night for her allergies. Then there’s a minor slip.
OFFICER: She had the kids last night?
WATTS [Appearing very smug, his lower jaw hanging open in a dopey-sort of way]: Yes.
OFFICER: Or you had the kids?
WATTS: Oh, I had the kids.
At 30:27 in the clip below, after the officer asks Watts if he has any questions [he doesn’t, but he mentions calling hospitals], he follows up asking about Shan’ann’s medical history. Did someone say she was diabetic, the officer asks.
In response Watts does a nervous lip snarl, and then starts off saying “she had” [past tense], then corrects himself. There is a lot to say here about Shan’ann health, including her pregnancy, but he doesn’t.
There are several revelations in the new book about Chris Watts. Some of these revelations are apparently authored by Watts himself. I don’t believe the botched double attempted murders on his daughters [while Shan’ann was home], but I do think some aspects are true. Like the admission that the lovers had phone sex during their last 111 minute conversation on Sunday.
This conversation was their last chance to be together before Shan’ann returned [and possibly ruined everything]. The phone sex claim certainly makes sense given the context that neither Kessinger nor Watts have previously said much regarding what that conversation was about.
Below are a few excerpts from the discovery dealing with that crucial final conversation. Given the rabid coverage of this case, it’s weird the phone sex claim hasn’t come up [as far as I’m aware] in the media.
On October 4th, 2019, Britain’s Daily Mail tabloid published an exclusive “preview” of a new book on Chris Watts, Letters from Christopher by American writer Cheryln Cadle.
Near the end of the article, the following information appeared:
Cadle asked him about the claims that Watts gave his wife Oxycodone and he responded with conflicting stories, saying he had given it to her twice – once at her parents’ home in North Carolina to try to cause a miscarriage, and then immediately before her death. He later contradicted himself and said he only gave it to her once in North Carolina.
‘I asked him where he got the Oxy, and he told me that is one of the things he will take to his death,’ Cadle wrote.
The moment Chris Watts said he used Oxycodone [the actual letter refers to Oxycontin] but wouldn’t say where he got it from, it set a cat among the pigeons. On the CrimeRocket forums people immediately begun to spread rumors and gossip. This prompted stern warnings – at least from CrimeRocket – for folks to cease and desist.
What they didn’t realize was by simply attaching a name to this new murderous spiel they were actually implicating someone as a potential accessory in triple murder.
I don’t think this was intentional, and I don’t think Watts or anyone else foresaw this possibility, but you can imagine what it felt like to be one of those names thrown in the hat, and there have been a few.
CrimeRocket has certainly been clear from the get go that Chris Watts alone is guilty and responsible for the Watts Family Murders.
Following this turn of events, a source close to the Watts family contacted CrimeRocket on October 5th and provided the following statement which is from Chris Watts himself. Not only was this statement transcribed and sent via email, but an audio clip of the conversation from Dodge Correctional was provided to CrimeRocket as well.
Furthermore, Chris Watts consented to this statements being sent to and published on CrimeRocket, so there was no underhand recording made without Chris Watts’ knowledge. Chris Watts and the Watts family would like to clear up any confusion about where he got the Oxy from.
The statement reads as follows:
“I gave Shan’ann the oxy on either July 30th or 31st, whichever was the first day I got into North Carolina.* I got the oxy from the bin [in the basement]. It was in Colorado and it was on the plane and I brought it from my house.”
*Watts first day in North Carolina was July 31st.
