Social media is speculating that Watts’ new girlfriend is one of his sister’s pals. That’s Anna on the right and Watts’ blonde sister beside her, second on the left.
If true, this suggests Watts’ family set up the “girlfriend” to appear be a sort of neutral spokesman to communicate Watts’ latest version of events to the media.
Anna’s reference to the word “leash” is also exactly the same word Watts’ himself used during the Second Confession.
He told KESSINGER that it felt like she had a leash on him and she was able to tug him away from SHANANN. – CBI Report, page 5
