American Murder: The Family Next Door killer Chris Watts admitted that he still has vivid memories from the day he murdered his wife Shanann and their two children.
The convicted murderer – who features on a new Netflix documentary – revealed in a newly released confession that whenever he closes his eyes, he hears his oldest daughter’s final words, begging him not to kill her.
"Daddy, no!" four-year-old Bella Watts screamed as her father moved in to smother her with the same blanket he’d used to kill her sister Celeste, three, moments earlier.
"I hear it every day, when Bella was talking to me," Watts told police, "When she said, ‘Daddy, no!'"
Watts, who was transferred to a prison in Wisconsin, spoke for hours with authorities in February 2019 from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.
He is currently serving multiple life sentences after pleading guilty last November to the murders of his pregnant wife, Shanann, 34, and the couple’s two daughters in August 2018.
According to People, Watts agreed to discuss the details of the murders after reportedly finding religion.
He detailed how he and Shanann had sex after she returned from a business trip to Arizona.
However, hours later he jumped on Shanann – who was on her back in their bed – after a fight in which he told her he didn’t love her, and she threatened him with leaving him and taking their children.
During his confession, Watts said he believed Shanann began praying as he started strangling her, and that she did not try to fight off the fatal attack.
He claimed that he drove 45 minutes to a remote oil field with Shanann’s corpse in the bed of his truck and their daughters – who were still alive at this point.
"During the ride, the girls were dozing on and off, held each other, and laid in each other’s laps," the CBI report stated from his confession.
"If I was thinking, this wouldn’t have happened, or any partial hint of what I feel for those girls and what I feel for my wife, then none of this would have happened. So I wasn’t thinking," he said.
Before burying hid dead wife in a shallow grave, Watts said he smothered Celeste, who went by CeCe, in the backseat, inches from Bella.
After dumping Celeste’s body in an old field, he returned to kill Bella, who "asked him in her soft voice, 'Is the same thing gonna happen to me as Cece?'"
"He is not sure if he told Bella ‘yes’ like a horrible person," the report added.
Viewers have been left "sickened" after tuning into the documentary when it dropped on Netflix on September 30.
On Twitter, one said: "This is horrific. You really think you know someone. #netflix."
"Takes a lot to bring me to tears. But the last 15mins of this has broken me. I actually shed a few tears and not an emotional guy, but this got me…" added a second.
And a third wrote: "I'm sick to my stomach over this Netflix documentary 'American Murder: The Family Next Door."
American Murder: The Family Next Door is available to stream on Netflix now.
