Chris Watts’ parents still SUPPORT evil murderer son but say they live with tragedy of losing grandchildren ‘every day’

THE parents of twisted killer Chris Watts have revealed they still support their evil son but live with the tragedy of losing their grandchildren "every day".

The couple spoke out after watching the Netflix documentary, American Murder: The Family Next Door.

It discusses the brutal 2018 murders of Shanann Watts and the couple's daughters Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, after their bodies were found at a nearby oil plant and Watts was convicted after an astonishing confession.

Ronnie and Cindy Watts, who say they will always love their murderer son despite his horrendous crimes, claim the 35-year-old killer knows "nothing" about the new program, after reports he is feeling "shame" over it being aired.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Cindy, 64, said: "Chris doesn't know anything about the documentary, we told him nothing about it.

"People come up with all these narratives. None of it is true. I'm living it, and I have been living it every single day for two years.

"It's nothing he hasn't lived through, he saw it, they didn't even show all the conversations that Christopher had with his dad, they didn't show anything, there was so much left out.

"Ronnie and I watched it on Saturday night. I was shocked to see videos that I thought were private of Shanann and the kids, showing me on the slip and slide in the backyard.

"There are things that are private, everything doesn't have to be documented. I would have preferred those not to be in there, but they were, and there's nothing I can do about it.

"There's not one day that goes by that I don't wake up with them on my mind, I go to sleep with them on my mind, I will never, ever get over this. It's something that stays with you."

Ronnie and Cindy say they regularly speak to the twisted killer and claim he's "heartbroken" and has turned to religion, spending days in his cell writing in his prison journal.

Ronnie, 63, added: "He has not been able to watch it [the documentary], he was never told about it or asked about it.

"It was about typical of what I thought it would be, I wasn't shocked by any of it really.

"They asked if we wanted to see it before it was released, which I declined to, [but] I wanted to see what the narrative was going to be.

"He's taking it one day at a time, just like we are. We still love our son no matter what and we miss our grand babies. We're trying to move forward but it's a very hard task."

Watts sobbed in court as he pleaded guilty to five counts of murder in the first degree, three counts of tampering with a deceased human body, and one count of unlawful termination of a pregnancy.

The request not to seek the death penalty came from Shannan's family.

He remains behind bars at the Dodge Correctional Institution in Waupun, Wisconsin.

"He has moved into general population and has a job now, but I can't talk about that any further," Ronnie added.

His former confidante, Cheryln Cadle, a true crime author who is releasing a new book, The Murders of Christopher Watts, after writing to him and visiting him in prison, has also watched the program.

Cheryln's book will feature all of the handwritten notes the 35-year-old sent her in full for readers to see.

During their correspondence, Watts revealed gruesome details about the August 2018 murders in Colorado and how he smothered his 35-year-old wife and children.

"Her eyes filled with blood; as she looked at me and she died. I knew she was gone when she relieved herself," Watts recalled after killing his wife in a bombshell letter to Cheryln.

Watts – who had been having an affair with his co-worker Nichol Kessinger – indicated in the letters that he thought about killing his family in the days leading up to their deaths.

He wrote that he secretly gave Shanann the opiate painkiller Oxycodone to kill their unborn child, telling Cadle: "I thought it would be easier to be with Nichol if Shanann wasn’t pregnant."

Cheryln last spoke to Watts late last year and admits their conversation "wasn't the friendliest" after a communication breakdown, and she still has dreams about being face-to-face with the murderer.

"By that time I was just kind of sick of his stunts, trying to control the narrative," she told The Sun.

"He thinks he can control you with his mind, and that's what he tried to do with me.

"Being in the presence of someone, you look at them and their eyes turn black, it does something to you.

"I still have dreams about looking at his face when he would say certain things, it's caused anxiety.

"I was never a person who had anxiety issues, but spending time with him the way that I did…

"Looking back on it all, there are a few things I wish I'd done differently.

"This case is unbelievable, the interest there has been. I wish I'd taken things a little slower."

She says the last time she spoke with Watts he was "dead set" against going for an appeal, adding he is "very afraid" to go back to Colorado after receiving death threats.

Cheryln added that she's disgusted he still has a "fan club" with numerous women still writing to him in prison, according to her sources.

"He's got a real fan base of people that believe he's innocent," she said. "He likes that attention, but as time goes by people are going to drop off.

Cheryln added: "I especially wish his family well and for them to be able to come to terms with what has happened. And for the Rzuecks [Shanann's family] to be able to heal. I’m so sorry for their huge loss.  

"As for Christopher, I hope he can find some contentment where he is and hopefully he can use what has happened to help other inmates that come through the system."
