Chris Watts, the convicted murderer who killed his pregnant wife and their two little daughters two years ago has reportedly been disciplined in prison after his belongings were found in another prisoner’s cell. Watts has lost some prison privileges after his underwear, petroleum jelly, assorted toiletries, and books were found in the cell of Dylan Tallman, Knewz reported. Reports also stated that Watts is frequently in touch with Tallman’s family. He not only reportedly called the fellow inmate’s mother multiple times, but his parents also contacted the mother and girlfriend of Tallman with messages. However, the content of the messages is not known yet. Though the kind of relationship Watts and Tallman share with each other is not known, it seemed it has something to do with religion. Some reports also claimed that the pair are writing a book of prayers together. Insiders have said that the name of the book would be ‘Revelation in the Reckoning’ and Watts selected Tallman to work with since the latter has previously published a book of prayer.

It has been said that the 33-year-old’s inclination towards religion happened after he was jailed for murdering his 15 weeks pregnant wife, Shanann Watts, and daughters --four-year-old Bella and three-year-old Celeste -- in 2018 after being confronted over his extramarital affairs. The murderer has earlier said that with the help of his prayer he was trying to connect with his dead wife and kids. “[Watts] has kind of renewed his faith and talks to the victims through prayer. The victims are his family,” an inmate report issued by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections Bureau of Classification and Movement noted. It added that the man was trying to “distance himself” emotionally from his dark past.

Watts is currently behind bars at Wisconsin’s Dodge Correctional Institution after being shifted from Colorado for security reasons earlier this year. “There’s a lot of curiosity about him in prison. He’s the most high-profile inmate and what he did is incomprehensible, so everyone wants to know more about the case,” a source said.

This comes a month after another report said that Watts was spending his jail days corresponding with several women. A source said, “He got a lot of letters at first. Many of them are from women who thought he was handsome and felt compassion for him. He had nothing better to do, so he wrote them back. And he started having penpals. A couple of them stood out, and they've kept in contact." When asked if Watt’s past disturbed the women, the insider added: “Believe it or not. They [women] have compassion for him, despite what he did."

Though it was not clear how many letters Watts had received, the source said there were "more than 10." "Some of the letters are angry. A lot of them are from people of faith who want to pray for him. But then he gets letters from women who want to connect with him, you know, romantically. He responds because he doesn't have anything better to do,” the source explained.
