Good episode? Give it some love!
What caused Chris Watts to kill his pregnant wife and two toddler daughters, and then hide their bodies on the grounds of an oil installation? Chris Watts seemingly had a happy family life and a wonderful marriage to his wife Shannan, but there were cracks showing and he had started a torrid affair with a coworker.  He soon began to resent his wife, and eventually strangled her, and then smothered his two daughters.  Later, he confessed his terrible and unthinkable crime to detectives and to his family.

On today's episode, we review the disturbing details behind the infamous Watts family murders, with an intense discussion about the facts of the case, including a deep dive into the family life of Chris and Shannan, as well as the roots of their relationship.  We also discuss the many different opinions so far from other shows and followers of this case, and analyze what makes this case so different from other family murders we covered on other shows.
