    Just a thought, could Shannan’s baby be fathered by someone else? Could she have been having an affair? He said in an interview that they tried for a long time to conceive with both of the girls, but she got pregnant without trying the last time. Maybe she told him the baby wasn’t his, this angered him enough to murder her? What are your thoughts?

    Sociopath & psychopath are both malignant narcissism.
    Sociopath is disorganised & has anxiety from their actions. Psychopath is organised & has no anxiety from their actions.

    Sadly Chris, his mom and Niki fits that profile of narcissism even if in different way. Clearly Nikki and his mom has no sympathy at all for the situation. Him I think he had emotions it’s just he kept to himself allowing to grow into something dangerous inside. It wasn’t out of the blue he planned and fantasized. I can only imagine how much his family badmouthed Shannon that last day in NC to him. I do believe whatever they said gave him permission even a justification for what he wanted to do. His sense of entitlement was grown by his mom, and in a way a weakness by his dad. Just watched how they behaved since the moment his dad arrived at Colorado, the book and interviews. Unfortunately his mom did reward him for not been difficult like his sister. In a way he learned to invisible not to bring trouble or stress into the family to get love and developed into a sick personality.

    Since we are talking about Watts psychological reasons for what he did I say this. And this is absolutely NO REASON for murdering his family. I see a pattern of Shanaan being very outgoing and busy with her sales of her company. The pattern continues with Shanaan coming across as wearing the pants in the family. She spent money like crazy reports said, yet she gets upset when a restaurant bill comes in at 62 dollars that Chris spent. Did she get upset because she already suspected Chris was cheating and this bill looked like dinner for 2? Or was she so controlling that she was nagging him? She drove the Lexus and he drives his company truck, not owning a vehicle of his own. The pattern again is how she apparently had him participating, not wanting to, in her company business. Basically time after time he had to do what she said. I'm only saying this to see why this man went off the rails in such a horrifying way. His kids shoved in oil tanks. Eeek. Did he feel stuck in Shanaans life? If so why didn't he just divorce? I think the moments before he killed her she and he were arguing and she may have threatened him with never seeing his kids again upon a divorce. Did this rage him into murdering? And why the kids too? This guy is a piece of work. Sad.

    This case is always on my mind. I just can't believe how they looked like such a perfect family and such a horrible thing happened.

    He meets NK in July at the start of the affair by the middle of August he kills his family, I honestly believe he was infatuated with NK and was blinded by pure lust he wanted a new life and the only way was to annihilate his family ..

    You're depicting my former husband. Senior Vice President of a large financial company. He has destroyed my life, just because he can, just for sport. I used to wonder why he copied what I was doing, my gestures, and my compassion. He was mimicking me. When I first discovered he was a "Covert Narcissist, Community Narcissist" I was relieved. Now after years of reading about Narcissists and Psychopaths, it so upsetting.

    I think his family knew what he was capable of doing. He didn't cry out for forgiveness regularly as a young man, for no reason. Him being so innocent and perfect, according to his parents. Who knows what they covered up? They all said they would do anything for him, regardless. Check out what crimes was taking place as he was growing up, cold case files etc. These killings came so easy for him and they were family, his! Him snickering that he tricked investigators, took you back to him tricking his teachers in school. Perfect criminal not perfect person.

    I should just finish the interview before commenting. I don't believe this guy was a psychopath or sociopath he may have had some antisocial personality disorder traits. Chris was a overall good guy. He's not that brilliant to be able to fool the whole world around him all of his life. People loved him. Trusted him. Shannan adored him. The children idolized him. You can't fake that!!! I believe he genuinely loved them all. I believe that we are all capable of meeting our dark side at various capacities. So then we are all dormant psychopaths!! Chris Watts is a man. Raised by a father who did not teach him to show emotion. Chris Watts is also a Taurus. They are very grounded good natured people. They love a bit of a chase in romance. When they secure what they want they can be ideally romantic. They don't necessarily get outwardly emotional as the rest of us. They feel things like love and joy and anger and sadness they just aren't as expressive about it. They tend to make great husbands when they settle down, they are excellent fathers they are overall good natured people. He was introverted he prefers small intimate gatherings vs large social settings. He prefers to be to himself vs a group of friends. He met someone else lust was mistaken for love. A light switched on. His life started to close in on him he felt suffocated by Shannan desperate to fix her marriage with him as she should have and all he wanted was to get out. The rift between his family and her was also bothersome. There was no support from them in regards to Shannan. The demons began manifesting his soul and in a short time he became very dark. Then the light switched off. What would be the perfect storm of events to set us off? Are we are all then dormant psychopaths???

    The fact that he saw murdering his family as a viable option and that he could go on to live a fulfilling and productive life. leads me to believe there was a subconscious break from all foresight and reality.

    Chris parents are not in any position to forgive their son for murdering his wife!!!! Or his children!!!! Only Shannans parents could forgive him for murdering Shannan, and only Shannan could forgive him for murdering the little children!!! He can NEVER be forgiven for murdering his children as the only one who COULD forgive him is dead…and I hope that Shannans prents will NEVER forgive him for murdering their daughter.

    Now Chris is counseling other inmates in prison because he's embraced Christianity and is studying the bible!! Try as you might Chris, you will never ever EVER be the "good guy" again.

    One thing I learned is stop being jealous of social media couples because you really never know what's going on behind closed doors
    Behind the scenes their marriage is falling apart so they overcompensate on social media by trying to present the illusion that everything is perfect.

    In CW prison interview he told detectives that he can't express emotions like other people
    He was a narcissist who cared about how others seen him thats why he freaked out when he was in interrogation and he was terrified that his coworkers would find out so he really did care about his image but dont get it twisted he was always the devil in disguise he didn't just 'snap'

    I know I'm really late with the comments….I've been intrigued with psychology most of my life (What makes them do that??? 🤔), but fate made me a legal secretary.
    I'm planning on going back to school, criminal law and psychology is my target. Not for a future career, I just want to learn.
    Something not many professionals consider is astrology. Criminals, from thieves to serial murderers, all come from certain astrological signs. There are patterns! 🤤 Check your clients' birthdays, it's pretty interesting.
    All astrological signs have their negative and positive sides, but some are better at being psychopaths or dupers. Chris Watts is a taurus, taurus men (we all have our faults) can be pros at duping.
