Chris Watts Lifetime Movie: Is it important to get the details right, and which one is TOTALLY wrong?

Do you know the game “spot the differences”? You hold up one picture, compare it to another and then it’s a matter of vigilance: how many things are different? In true crime, where a crime is dramatized – always a worthwhile exercise – the apposite question to ask is whether these differences matter. Do they?

Something is very wrong in one or more of the images provided here. Does it take a True Crime Rocket Science to figure it out, or can you?

Debunking The TCRS Myths About Chris Watts

The YouTuber below has provided a debunk for the “Chris Watts is a narcissist!” No, actually he isn’t video. What do you think, does she succeed?

I’ve also provided a third video which has an interesting if dubiously relevant explanation of the “covert narcissist”. The scary part is I think I have some of those traits, but doesn’t saying that outright mean I’m not “covert” by definition?

So what am I?

True Crime In Colorado: Promising New Lines of Inquiry into Nichol Kessinger

The undiscovered country of true crime is undoubtedly social media. Ordinary people leave digital breadcrumbs of themselves online, willy-nilly, randomly, arbitrarily but also authentically. These are off-the-cuff but more important, timestamped and related to a key inner circle of people. These hidden networks reveal plenty about the true social dynamics of the key role players.

Once a crime happens, typically attempts are made to scrub compromising online activity. Kessinger did an impressive job in destroying her virtual identity, but as is typically the case, she wasn’t able to scrub everything.

The True Crime in Colorado channel has done some good work recently in developing the Kessinger narrative in a meaningful way [as opposed to the ongoing conjecture that has been mostly baseless].

They’ve followed a few leads using Venmo notifications,* and trying to connect these to the discovery as well as timeline-related texts sent between Watts and Kessinger. Fleshing out the timeline is integral to cogent True Crime Rocket Science, which is why there seems to be some – not a lot, but some – new insight here.

The bottom-line with these possible connections to Trent Bolte, Danielle and others, is it provides the cursory apparatus to interrogate the beginnings of “dark things” Watts suggested in his letters to Cheryln Cadle. Were these dark things sexual?

Latest Conspiracy: “Nichol Kessinger’s truck spotted on August 15 [exclamation mark]”

YouTubers are really scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to come up with new Chris Watts-related stuff. It wouldn’t even be fair to call this stuff “tenuous links” to the case. It’s linked to the case in the same sense that the sky above the house, and gravity under it are also linked to the rest of the neighborhood. Correlation doesn’t not imply causation, they say, but even these images aren’t correlated to actual people involved, that’s how poor the standard of true crime application is by these folks.

The latest tail-chase is car spotting, preferably red or white vehicles, using the Bodycam footage. In YouTubeLand the standard to meet is weak visual coincidences and an audience that wants to stay in Wonderland.
