Chris Watts has finally revealed just how he murdered his family in a shocking jailhouse confession obtained by DailyMail.com.
The killer father told investigators last month that he strangled his wife Shanann when she confronted him about his affair with mistress Nichol Kessinger.
He also revealed that he had sex with his wife just hours before that, when she returned from a work trip to Arizona.
Watts now regrets his actions, and at one point comments on how things could have been, stating: ‘Right now I’d have a 5-year-old…a 3-year-old…and more than likely, a one-month old son…and a beautiful wife…and right now it’s just me.’
Murderer and victims: Chris Watts spoke about what happened on the night his wife and daughters were killed in a prion interview last month (above just months before the murders)
Now ad then: A few hours later he spoke with Shanann before work and was confronted about his affair with Nichol Kessinger, which is when he strangled his wife (Watts in February on left duiring interview and on right in the only known photo of him taken the morning of the murders)
Mistress: Shanann believed that Watts was having an affair long before that day, but it had bee confirmed by a recent credit card charge (Watts and his mistress Nichol Kessinger above in July)
After strangling Shanann, which he said took less than four minutes, Bella came into the room and was informed by her father that her mother was asleep.
Watts then dragged Shanann down the stairs, at which point the couple’s other daughter Celeste was woken up and began running around the house with her sister.
Shanann was then loaded into Watts’ truck with her two daughters, who spent an hour in the vehicle with their dead mother’s body.
Once Watts arrived at his work site, he took Shanann’s body out of the car and then returned to kill Celeste.
He smothered Celeste with a New York Yankees blanket while choking her enck and then tossed her body in an oil tank.
Bella sat silently and watched as her father killed her little sister.
When he returned from dumping Celeste, Bella asked quietly: ‘Is the same thing gonna happen to me as Cece?’
Watts said he was not sure if he told her ‘yes’ or not at the time.
She put up a fight while he began to smother her in the same manner as her sister, making grunting noises and screaming out just before she died: ‘Daddy, no!’
Celeste was able to fit into the opening in the oil tank but Bella had to be manipulated said Watts, who next went about burying his wife Shanann.
He raked away some weeds but then dumped the rake when it broke, before putting her and his unborn son Nico in a shallow grave.
Watts then went home, where he tossed the Yankees blanket and his clothes in a neighborhood dumpster.
He said there was no master plan and he is still not certain how he managed to act normal around people after these events transpired in early August.
Watts also said he did not even try to think up an alibi at any point.
