Chris Watts played out terrifying 'rape fantasy' during one-night stand with woman he met on Tinder months before murdering family
The woman, Amanda McMahon, divulged the details of her March 2018 encounter with Chris Watts to an investigator.
While Chris Watts has already been convicted and sentenced to multiple life sentences without parole in the murders of his pregnant wife, Shanann, and their daughters, Celeste and Bella, details about the double life he led are still emerging. The latest concerns a one-night stand he had with a woman he met on dating app Tinder where he was allegedly "fast and aggressive" and played out a "rape fantasy."
According to the Daily Mail, the details of the date and the one-night stand was laid out to investigators by one Amanda McMahon, who revealed that she met Watts at the parking lot of a local Chic-fil-A one night in March 2018. She said she was aware that their meet-up was not arranged so they could start a relationship and that both of them just wanted to have sex with one another.
She told investigators they made their way to her apartment so they could sleep with one another and that the experience was uncomfortable because he was "rough" and "really fast and aggressive," but admitted that Watts did not seem like a killer.
In his report detailing his conversation with McMahon, the investigator wrote, "When I asked her to explain she said Watts was very rough and described seeing Watts’ face and tattoos. I asked Amanda to tell me what happened after they left the Chick-fil-A. She said Watts followed her to the apartment, [redacted]. Upon arrival, they went inside her apartment and described things as 'really fast and aggressive.'"
The Mail reports that when the investigator pushed her for further details, McMahon hesitated and asked for an attorney to be present because she was afraid of incriminating herself, and only continued when she was given reassurances that she was being treated as a witness in the case and not as a potential suspect.
McMahon then divulged that she felt "humiliated" because of Watts' rough behavior, telling the investigator it was "weird" and that he "tried to stick it in her butt." She also said Watts pulled her hair and put his arms around her neck, claiming she had to push him off her at one point and describing the night as a "rape fantasy" for the killer.
She said she didn't suspect anything untoward from Watts and that "no radars went off or anything," but it was scary because he was in her home, explaining she learned of the murders through Shannan's best friend Nicole Utoft. McMahon explained she saw Utoft's post about Shanann being missing and connected the dots.
Once reports of Watts' infidelity became common news, McMahon said she realized she was probably one of the many women he had slept with and wrote the same on a Facebook group. "I can personally attest to Chris cheating," she posted. "I didn't know he was married. I swear I didn't know anything about him having a family. We met on Tinder."
Watts pleaded guilty to multiple counts of first-degree murder on November 6 and was sentenced to five consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole. According to the Daily Mail, he was transferred from the Weld County Jail to the Colorado Department of Corrections following his conviction, with estimated discharge date stated to be "12/31/9998" in his inmate information.
