Chris Watts says his daughter visits him in prison, claims to have had a phone conversation with his slain wife
Watts was convicted for the brutal murders of his two daughters—four-year-old Bella and three-year-old Celeste—and his wife Shanann, who was pregnant with their unborn son Niko, last August in Fredrick, Colorado
Chris Watts, who is serving five life sentences with no possibility of parole at the Dodge Correctional Institution—a maximum-security prison in Waupun, Wisconsin, has claimed that he has been communicating with his slain daughters and wife.
Watts was convicted for the brutal murders of his two daughters—four-year-old Bella and three-year-old Celeste—and his wife Shanann, who was pregnant with their unborn son Niko, last August in Fredrick, Colorado.
Watts spoke at length to author Cherlyn Cadle through letters and interviews for her upcoming book 'Letters from Christopher', Daily Mail reports.
According to Watts, his daughter Celeste aka Cece visited him in prison and danced for him. He says he is hopeful of her coming back, along with the rest of the family. In the letters to Cadle, he also spoke about his wife Shannon reaching out to him through a phone conversation.
"I had a dream Cece was dancing next to the chair in my cell. When she was dancing, all of my folders on the chair started moving... Then I woke up. I'm hoping she comes back! I hope everyone comes to visit me," the 34-year-old told the author.
However, he refused to submit to psychiatric testing in prison and claimed that he was not mentally ill.
"Christopher and his mother have both told me he has never been tested for mental illness," said Cadle, who also claimed that Watts—who still maintains that he is not a murderer—is striving to maintain a "good guy image" in hopes of being released on good behavior.
Watts reportedly told Cadle that he felt darkness looming over him in the weeks that lead up to the murder of his entire family and that he was put under a spell by his mistress Nichol Kessinger who apparently wanted to mother his first son.
"Christopher told me that he had never thought of demonic things before or felt there was demon possession. He has also talked about how he felt God gave him three chances to pull away from Nichol but he did not listen to any of those voices. He also talks at length in his letters about the visits he gets from his daughters in a jail cell," Cadle revealed.
The book, Letters From Christopher, is on pre-order and will be published on October 7.
