The Weld County District Attorney's Office released fresh recordings of Chris Watts, the Colorado man who was sentenced for killing his pregnant wife and two daughters in August. The new videos, which surfaced on Thursday, show him transferring the bodies of his family to a truck.

Reports state that the video recordings were captured by a home security camera nearby, which were later obtained by KCNC. In the clips, Watts can be spotted walking down his driveway and moments later he can be seen reversing a truck.

In another part of the video, the accused appears to be near the vehicle and placing something in the truck's back. He can also be seen holding an item which appears to be a red gasoline can in the video. The vehicle is later spotted moving towards the front of the driveway before leaving eventually.



 

 



 

Weld County District Attorney Michael Rourke, while talking to KCNC, said that the same vehicle seen in the video was used by Watts to carry his dead family members — his pregnant wife Shannan Watts and their two young girls Belle and Celeste. He reportedly used the truck to move their bodies to an oil and gas company where he was employed previously, according to the attorney.

The girls' bodies were later discovered by authorities submerged in an oil tank while their mother was buried in a shallow grave.

The 19th Judicial District Attorney’s Office also released a set of documents and interview associated with Watts on Thursday, after Denver7 made open records requests regarding the documents.



 

In one of the videos released by the Judicial District Attorney's Office, Watts can be seen confessing to murdering his wife while investigators question him over a period of several hours. He also confessed to his father that he killed Shannan in a rage.

Watts was given three consecutive life sentences after he pleaded guilty earlier this month to killing his wife and children. The family was reported missing on August 13, following which Watts made a feigned public appeal for people to find his family members. Reports stated that the plea deal also included one count of unlawful termination of a pregnancy and three counts of tampering with a deceased human body.
