Notorious killer Chris Watts was convicted of murdering his pregnant wife and two young daughters in 2018, but as prosecutors revealed, he’s received love letters from female fans.
The unbelievable revelation, coming in an ABC7 story, noted that dozens of letters have been sent the killer’s way from adoring admirers.
That includes one woman who sent a picture of herself in a bikini to arouse his interest. Another woman assured him, “In my heart, you are a great guy,” and yet another noted, “I’m hoping to brighten your days.”
Watts strangled Shanann Watts and smothered their daughters, four-year-old Bella and three-year-old Celeste, in a highly-publicized 2018 case. He eventually pleaded guilty to the charges and is serving multiple life sentences for those crimes.
And yet, even with all the adoration he’s getting, Watts still allegedly has feelings for the mistress that reportedly played a role in the murders.
According to a report from Inquisitr, “Watts apparently murdered his wife and daughters because he wanted to be with his mistress, Nichol Kessinger. The two are still lovers, according to an inmate who did time with Watts.”
That story went on to note that Kessinger was a co-worker of Watts’ at Anadarko Petroleum. The two met at work, and after Watts reportedly lied to Kessinger that he was separated from his wife, they began an affair.
“Investigators believe Kessinger never knew Watts indented to kill his family,” that story noted. “Still, many remain convinced that Kessinger somehow played a part in the murders. The woman was ‘inundated with hate mail’ for a long time, so she changed her name and went into hiding to rebuild her life.”
The Daily Star, reporting on the story, noted that true-crime TV host Nancy Grace commented on his case and the fan mail on her podcast, registering the disbelief that many had upon hearing about the love letters.
“My point is, who are these nuts that are ‘in love’ with him?” she asked. “He didn’t have a trial, he pled guilty under oath, he admitted he’s guilty. He’s not innocent deep, deep down inside. Who are these people?”
