Witness the exact moments when police knew Chris Watts was guilty in his family’s disappearance and the eventual found murder of his pregnant wife (Shanann) and two young daughters (Bella and Celeste). We’re going to analyze Chris’s body language from police body cameras to show you when police knew he did it.
Chris Watts is the Frederick (northern Colorado) man who eventually admitted to murdering his pregnant wife (Shanann Watts, pregnant with Nico Lee Watts) and two young daughters (Bella Watts and Celeste Watts) on the morning of August 13, 2018. Early that morning, Chris Watts covered up the scene of his crime by loading his deceased pregnant wife and two young daughters into the back seat of his work truck, which took him about 50 minutes.
His pregnant wife, Shanann, was found buried in a shallow grave in an eastern Colorado oil field (CERVI 319) where Chris worked and the bodies of his two little girls were found dumped in oil tanks. I live just 40 minutes south of where all this happened, so this case literally hits close to home.
At first Chris Watts claimed his family was just missing and that’s where we’re going to start in this video. We’re going to watch through police body cameras how this first day unfolded and I’ll point out Chris’s body language which caused police to really suspect he was guilty. Since cameras are now everywhere with doorbell cameras, police body cameras, and cell phone cameras, it’s shocking to witness first-hand how everything unfolded and then unraveled quickly for Chris that first day.
In the comments: What do you think Chris Watts was thinking about when he was watching his neighbor's security camera footage?
Give this video a thumbs up so I know you liked it and I’ll do a follow up video on the FBI’s interrogation tactics used on Chris Watts, which got him to finally confess.

The cop wasn't touching his face he was grabbing his collar on his vest, resting his arm. Many cops do this when they're standing and talking to someone.

Thank God for loyal friends like Nicole and GREAT police work. These two, Nickole and the cop(his bodycam as evidence) broke this case. Chris did not get time to clean and destroy evidence, because Nickole was like Perry Mason-she left no stone unturned.

Well, normally when they say "If they'll do it for you, they'll do it to you" referring to men who leaves their wives usually for younger looking women, only to do it again to them once a certain amount of time has passed. Rarely does it mean "Hey lady, if he's willing to kill his wife and basically three kids for you, guess what happens to you and yours in the extraordinarily unlikely event he got away with this to begin with?"

Inserting videos of the little kids playing and living in the house, next to footage taken right after the crime makes it even sadder. They were so small. How could anyone kill his own kids ?? what a scum bag......

Chris is like "That's so thoughtful of you neighbor, having one of your cameras focused on MY driveway, that's really good looking out for your neighbor... god damn it." Burn in hell you piece of shit. He could've prevented it too that's probably what he's thinking about with his hands over his head. Thank God he's a fucking moron.

Chris Watts is a modern day cult hero to thousands of people. To have the guts and the clarity to do what was a very difficult thing in such an extremely confusing high pressure situation from an excruciatingly high level of social media driven female toxicity is absolutely amazing!!! I hope to one day be able to prove my metal in a similarly heroic way.

See I’m really good at accessing situations and analyzing people. When the video first started automatically seemingly right off the bat I could tell that something was not adding up. The fact that he took so long to get to the house In a situation like that, from how he acted when he pulled up to the house. Everything he was saying his body motions were all extremely defensive and he was compulsively lying. And look into his eyes, number one tell of a liar or someone who’s guilty and when I looked into his eyes I see a killer.

In the Comments: What was Chris Watts thinking here?
A Alan B

I think he was picturing what he had done. Everything was supposed to be "cool" on the surface. So he was trying his hardest to be calm. He was so calm it was weird. He wasn't running around coming up with any ideas. He was trying to play it off like it was no big deal she was at a friend's house with the kids. I think that everything th hat unfolded that day was a nightmare and he knew he was the killer. I'd like to think that this scared the living shit out of the coward to watch with police as he monstrously loaded his dead wife and baby Niko into the truck. Chris Watts has admitted that the girls were alive and well. They rode with their pregnant strangled mother to the ultimate gravesite, and their doom. Watts explains this was about 45 mins to an hour drive when you see him leave that morning. He goes straight to his worksite to get rid of his wife's body. He then makes the deplorable decision, at this point, cold and calculated, to smother Cece. He does this in front of Bella. Mommy is already buried. Cece stopped fighting back, and he took her body to the first oil tank. Bella was perhaps standing in the truck, watching all of this from the window. Chris comes back for her. She says, "the same thing me now?" Chris moves. He claims her last words were, "No daddy." in her soft sweet voice. I hope you rot in Hell Chris Watts.

Some people do not deserve to have a family and kids. How can a man kill his own children? One day he was playing with them and the next he smothered them. I am sure he was psychologically evaluated before his sentence but deserves solitary confinement for the rest of his life if not the death penalty.

Dear Derek! Please make your next body language analysis video about Roman Zadorov's investigation, regarding the murder of the 13 year old girl Tair Rada in Israel 2006. Or at least please watch the fascinating 4 episodes series "Shadow Of Truth", I'd love to hear your opinion about this case, it's fluding the public in Israel with controversy. Thanks!

One discrepancy in your video is that Chris didn't kill his daughters at the house, but he actually strangled them in his work truck. So they were still alive in that security camera footage. Chris is despicable.
