Killer Chris Watts has revealed the horrific details of how he killed his two young children, four-year-old Bella and three-year-old Celeste (Cece), in an unsettling jail letter addressed to true crime author Cheryln Cadle.
The letter revealed that he attempted to smother his children before strangling his pregnant wife, Shanann, at their home in Frederick, Colorado.
Nonetheless, his attempt to murder his children failed, since they awoke with bruises and psychological distress from the torture they had been through.
During the multiple conversations he had with law enforcement and FBI investigators following the August 2018 series of killings, the oil fields worker did not acknowledge the initial murder attempt.

According to the Daily Mail, the disturbing and carefully described letter was addressed to Ms Cadle, who maintained contact with the murderer after his incarceration.
She engaged in multiple conversations through several debates and a collection of Watts’ letters, which served as the foundation for her book “Letters From Christopher,” which was published in 2019.
In the letters, which were acquired by the Daily Mail, Watts expresses in writing: “August 13th, morning of, I went to the girls’ room first, before Shanann and I had our argument.
“I went to Bella’s room, then Cece’s room and used a pillow from their bed (to kill them). That’s why the cause of death was smothering.

He added: “After Shanann had passed, Bella and Cece woke back up. I’m not sure how they woke back up, but they did. Bella’s eyes were bruised and both girls looked like they had been through trauma.
“That made the act that much worse knowing I went to their rooms first and knowing I still took their lives at the location of the batteries.”
According to the Mirror in the letter to Ms Cadle, Watts said that he had been plotting the murders for a while.
He wrote: “August 12th when I finished putting the girls to bed, I walked away and said ‘That’s the last time I’m going to be tucking my babies in.’ I knew what was going to happen the day before and I did nothing to stop it!”

He also confessed in the note that he had slipped a painkiller to his wife in the hope of inducing a miscarriage. “I thought it would be easier to be with Nichol if Shanann wasn’t pregnant,” he wrote.
Watts appeared to have turned down multiple interviews before he was in contact with Ms Cadle and he hoped that the book could be his “story of redemption”.
However, the author does not condone Watts’ evil actions.
