WAUPUN, WISCONSIN: Chris Watts, who is serving a life sentence for the 2018 murder of his pregnant wife and two daughters, will be celebrating his 38th birthday on May 16 behind bars. However, according to the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, none of the inmates, including Chris, will receive any special privileges or accommodations on their birthdays. Although, he does receive tons of love letters from twisted women who believe he is wrongly convicted. 

Currently housed in the maximum-security Dodge Correctional Institution in Waupun, Wisconsin, Chris resides in the general population and works as a custodian within the facility, as confirmed by the DOC. Previously, he was serving his sentence in Colorado but was relocated to Wisconsin for security reasons in 2018.

Chris Watts finds comfort and attention through letters from twisted admirers

Last November, an inside source revealed that Chris has been engaging in letter correspondences with multiple women for several years. The source disclosed that women send him provocative pictures, and he responds, with many of them finding him attractive and believing he is misunderstood. "They send sexy pictures, and he responds," the source told People. "There are a lot of women who think he's handsome and misunderstood. They send a lot of letters." "He's got nothing else to do," the source said. "So he feeds his ego in that way. The only outlet he has is with these letters."

Chris Watts and the murder of his family

Chris was convicted in 2018 for strangling his wife, Shanann Watts, in their Colorado home and smothering their daughters, Bella Watts, 4 years old, and Celeste Watts, 3 years old. After murdering Shanann, Chris took her body to his workplace at an oil company and buried her there before killing his two daughters. He pleaded guilty to the murders and received a life sentence. The crime was also portrayed in the Netflix series 'American Murder: The Family Next Door'. 


The investigation concluded that Chris committed the crimes due to an extramarital affair with a co-worker who believed he was separated from Shanann. In the days leading up to the killings, Shanann had expressed concerns about their marriage to a friend, unaware of the imminent danger she faced. As Chris marks another birthday within the confines of prison, he continues to serve his sentence without any special treatment.
