There is very little information in all of the media covering this case that provides the time when the police were notified. Little, not none. The 13:30 timestamp below makes sense if we consider the whiteboard was drawn up within the next 15 minutes.

It was the action plan of what to do next, which resources to use, and how to co-ordinate with hotel staff. It’s also clear that the disappearance was noticed at 07:00 according to what was told to police on Day 1, whereas the media reported the disappearance at 08:00 [although various times were reported, ranging from 06:30 to 08:30].

If these times are accurate, it raises a disturbing question. Why did it take so long to alert the authorities?

#36 August 8th, 2018: “I kicked his sorry ass out of bed” #1yearagotodayCW

Shan’ann Watts wastes no time alerting everyone about her debacle. She starts off Wednesday morning venting almost hysterically about her situation. She tells Sara Nudd she tried to have sex with her husband [presumably after they arrived home from the airport], and Watts rejected her. Again, this event will later play into the psychology of his fictional versions after-the-fact. It’s also a major blunder of the cops that they didn’t question Watts at length on exactly what happened when he arrived home with Shan’ann on the night of August 7th, in order to set a general precedent.

Shan’ann’s admission that she’s not “cried this hard ever” provides perspective on just how emotionally compromised she was, and who wouldn’t be, given the stakes: drowning in debt, battling her in laws, pregnant, sick, husband possibly cheating and he doesn’t want the third baby, and two temperamental young children to look after…

Fullscreen capture 20190807 141823

The tantrums aren’t pleasant either. Shan’ann has fought back by reviewing her own phone data and holding this up as evidence; interrogating him, asking him to explain it. This too is going to turn the lights in his cockpit red.

Shan’ann refers to 12 separate texts where she begged him to talk to her but instead he was “asleep” at 19:00 or 20:00.  In fact, he wasn’t asleep, he was at Kessinger’s home throughout the month of July.

Fullscreen capture 20190808 132222

Shan’ann sending him “evidence” off her phone would also have vividly alerted Watts to a narrative – about him – that he had very little control over. And this was the thing he was becoming increasingly anxious about – how to make sure he stayed on top of his narrative. It was important his mistress didn’t get a different impression of him, especially not from his pregnant wife.

The arguing between the two also doesn’t sound as mild as it was in North Carolina, when they shared their living quarters with her folks. With them out of the way, Shan’ann is free to let rip on Watts, and she does:

“I tried talking to him after rejection last night, and me crying alone for an hour on the couch – he slept. I kicked his sorry ass out of bed and I refuse to sleep on the couch anymore this week. Told him to not come home today if he can’t tell me the damn truth on what the hell is wrong!”

Make no mistake, this is Shan’ann no holds barred, passive [crying] aggressive [threatening], putting her foot down, laying down the law. It’s unclear where Watts was sleeping in bed, whether it was the basement or in her bed. If he was in the basement why would she be on the couch?

Consider the irony of her telling him “not to come home if he can’t tell me the damn truth” and what he elected to do with her. He made her disappear, not come home, so that she couldn’t tell anyone the truth.

Also, consider the irony of Watts – for five weeks prior – having the run of “his house”, and the first night back his wife bullies him, threatens him, kicks him out of bed, all the while wishing he could be with Kessinger, but knowing he can’t because she’s around. In these emotionally fraught moment, the thought has to be clanging in his head:

I just wish I could get rid of her. 

Shan’ann also acknowledges for the first time that it’s not just a case that Watts doesn’t want the baby, he’d be prepared to kill the child – through an abortion.

At 08:06 we get a peek on Shan’ann’s intuition regarding the affair. It’s on her mind, but she’s not certain. One of the reasons for this is a pretty good reason Watts offers in his defense:

Fullscreen capture 20190806 004051

And hence, Shan’ann also told Amanda Thayer she wasn’t too concerned about an affair, because she knew, and he knew, “he had no game”. But this was a critical error on her part. It was also a neat psychological manipulation from him to goad her towards her own familiar contempt for him.

Fullscreen capture 20190807 141853

When Josh Rosenberg [Cassie’s husband] contacted Watts to ask about the baby’s gender, Watts must have felt his ears burning. Clearly, Shan’ann was waking up the neighborhood talking about them, and the baby.

Fullscreen capture 20190806 005941

Cassie would later tell the cops that Shan’ann only texted her because she didn’t want Watts to hear her talking about him. She knew she wasn’t supposed to be discussing their problems with others. More than likely, Watts have been clear that he didn’t want her to air their dirty laundry in public, especially after what happened during Nut Gate with his folks. Shan’ann agreed, but then went behind his back and communicated anyway. Josh asking him about the baby proved that Shan’ann had broken her word to him, and this made him vulnerable in his affair.

This…I have to put a stop to this. How do I put a stop to this?

At 15:11 Watts made a change to Shan’ann’s contact details, perhaps to prevent Kessinger from seeing anything on his phone. Given what was happening, there was likely to be a flurry of histrionic traffic between him and his wife.

At 19:25, Kessinger Googles “marrying your mistress”. This day was also a rendezvous with her at the office, and a break at long last from the loveless drama and bitter feuding after the last week. Watts also apparently told her then – immediately after arriving back – we’re getting a divorce. At this point, he had told Shan’ann that they were incompatible and didn’t want the baby. It’s also on this day that she tells Nickole Atkinson and Cassie Rosenberg she will fight for full custody. August 8th is thus the first time he mentions divorce, but also tells her he’s not in a hurry. 

In the Phone Data Review cursory remarks are made about a critical conversation Shan’ann has with Nickole and Cassie at 22:19 on August 8th, littered with expletives. Part of this conversation includes Shan’ann asking for the pregnancy reveal Taylor Welsch is organizing, to be cancelled – as per Watts’ instructions. This is obviously an issue for him. Shan’ann also asks her friends not to post anything on Facebook. [This is the day prior to Watts scrubbing his Facebook profile].

Fullscreen capture 20190808 135134

I have mentioned in the past that if Watts saw this particular exchange, where both Shan’ann and Cassie say “fuck him” and conspire to take his house, this more than anything else would have prompted him to take the gloves off. It’s also possible he did see it if they had shared access to the iCloud, as many couples do. From the discovery we know that at a certain point they did share access.

It’s unfortunate that Shan’ann was indiscreet about the private issues of their marriage. Watts had only just confided in her, and he did so reluctantly and with difficulty. She could be discreet about certain issues when she wanted to be, such as their money troubles. If it suited her, Shan’ann could keep secrets. But even if her husband asked her to do so Shan’ann didn’t seem to have any qualms about going behind his back, after all, fuck him,  she wore the pants, she was the one in control.  Below is a sample of some of the actual text messages sent between Shan’ann, Nickole and Cassie on August 8th.

fullscreen-capture-20190215-211626fullscreen-capture-20190215-211628fullscreen-capture-20190215-211631fullscreen-capture-20190215-211634fullscreen-capture-20190215-214901fullscreen-capture-20190215-221928fullscreen-capture-20190215-222249fullscreen-capture-20190215-222638

After a long day of venting and whatnot, by the end of it Shan’ann seemed to have a change of heart. She realized she didn’t have a choice in the matter. She couldn’t afford to be a single mother without his full salary, and three kids to raise in Colorado. The in Colorado bit is especially telling. It suggests she’d considered living with the kids elsewhere, where it was cheaper.

Presumably that night Watts slept in the bed in the basement. Bear in mind Shan’ann had told him earlier that day not to bother to come home unless he told her the truth that night. Well he had. He wanted a divorce. Didn’t want the baby. And didn’t want her to do a baby reveal, or talk about it on social media. They also discussed the house and their financial constraints. Maybe Shan’ann provided a sticky solution. If the Rosenbergs moved in, they didn’t need to move out, did they?

Probably that same day  at work [and later that night, from the bed in the basement] he let Kessinger know how serious he still was about her. How serious was he? He was getting a divorce and loved her, and wanted to marry her. Shan’ann – he told her – had already called the realtor. It’s happening. For her part, Kessinger elected to help find him an apartment to facilitate the separation/divorce. 

Page 570 of the Discovery Documents appears to refer to this aspect of the timeline – August 8th. Kessinger started looking for apartments from this day, the day after his return from North Carolina.

Fullscreen capture 20190808 141926Fullscreen capture 20190808 141655

At 23:08, a few hours after returning from the Ultrasound, Shan’ann is alone in bed, looking for reading material for her husband. He just needs therapy, and some counselling.

#35 August 7th, 2018: “Scared to death…I really don’t want to leave here” #1yearagotodayCW

August 7th, 2018 was a Tuesday, the last Tuesday Shan’ann or the girls would ever live through. It would also be the last time the Rzuceks would see their daughter [and sister] and granddaughters [and nieces].

One piece missing from the timeline puzzle is the family haircut at Hair Jazz. Although the media has reported on it, it’s not mentioned by anyone else. It’s also not mentioned whatsoever in the 1960 page Discovery Documents.

fullscreen-capture-20181021-003141

The family haircut likely happened on the morning of their last day in North Carolina. This is a guess, of course, but it’s based on the fact that the family decamped almost immediately after arriving, to Myrtle Beach, and spent a few days there. It’s also assumed the haircut didn’t happen over the weekend, or on the Monday when Watts was out of town on his own, visiting his family. So Tuesday seems to be a likely candi-date.

During this haircut on Tuesday morning, Sandi’s co-workers at Hair Jazz also noticed Watts appearing to be standoffish, while Shan’ann was excited about her pregnancy. Watts may have been annoyed by being double-timed, in the sense that several women would be twittering about their baby, meanwhile Shan’ann knew full well his feelings on the subject.

This was another instance where he would have felt pressured, or even coerced. Shan’ann, in her giddy excitement, may also have mentioned not being able to wait for the gender reveal with her pals back in Colorado, perhaps promising to share the details on Facebook so her folks and them [at Hair Jazz] could see as well. This too would have set off the alarm bells in Watts’ mind.

So on Tuesday morning, Sandi cut her son-in-law’s hair, as well as the girls’. Probably she cut, trimmed or colored Shan’ann’s as well, but we don’t know that for sure. We have no idea whether this played in Watt’s mental preparation, or if it did, how much. But consider the mental picture of each family member, one-by-one, being “processed”. Each one is covered in a black shawl while someone stands behind them with a sharp, silver object. And gradually, snip-snip-snip, pieces of the body fall to the ground and are swept away.

One thing is certain, cutting the hair shorter of everyone involved helped Watts limit the evidence trail. Remember, the only traces of anyone found at either crime scene was a blonde hair on the east thief hatch [Ceecee’s], and hair fragments in the rear of the pick-up.

Fullscreen capture 20190807 131837

Strangely there is no mention of hair fragments in the discovery either, even though this appears in the media narrative.

Now let’s drill down into the Phone Data Review.

Fullscreen capture 20190807 125919

The colorful description is worth noting here. Watts wasn’t just anxious, he was “scared to death”. And he really was. The conundrum he found himself in ultimately drove him to commit triple murder. The operative emotion therefore was fear of what Shan’ann would do or say within the overarching drama of wanting to preserve his love affair with Kessinger.

We also have confirmation here that Watts wasn’t intimate with Shan’ann “all week”, and the change in his demeanor was such that Shan’ann said she no longer recognized him, and even “no longer [felt] safe with him.” This was all useful intuition from Shan’ann, but instead of acting on it, she decided to ignore what her head was telling her and go with her heart.

At 16:26, about half an hour prior to their flight, Shan’ann needles Watts for more information.

“Something else is wrong that you’re not saying…”

She suspects he’s cheating on her, but is hoping he isn’t. Even if he is, if he can’t tell her then perhaps that’s because he still loves her. [This assumption was a critical, and fatal error].

Just before 23:00 Watts arrives home with Shan’ann and the kids, the latter likely already sound asleep. There is certainly context for psychological preparation here. In effect Watts is sharing Shan’ann’s journey from the airport to their home before it actually played out in the wee hours of Monday morning, August 13th – just 5 days away at this point.

Watts would have seen how tired Shan’ann was, and also how she would have entered the house, when she would have gone upstairs, and with what.

In a more general sense, Watts was happy to be home. It meant he’d see Kessinger again at work the next morning, and at work he’d be free of the shackles of home. Watts had told Kessinger he’d tried to save his marriage in North Carolina, but that Shan’ann wasn’t interested. I’m speculating on this point, but if Kessinger found out about the pregnancy, Watts may have said then he wasn’t the father, and for that reason Shan’ann didn’t want to stay in the marriage [implying she was leaving him for the father].

In any event, Watts was inverting the reality. He wanted to leave his wife for Kessinger, but he knew Kessinger would feel guilty to be the one breaking up the party, so to speak. And she was. So Watts pretended it was Shan’ann who wanted out, but for that to work, he needed Shan’ann to shut up about him, and the baby, especially on social media.

Two additional aspects we ought to bear in mind relate to a broader context. The first has to do with Vivint, and the second with Anadarko.

a). VIVINT

While Watts was away in North Carolina, Nickole Atkinson and her son Nicolas dogsat. They were looking after Deeter. During this time Watts would have been in-tune to how the home security system could keep him up to date on their movements. This was also mental preparation in the sense that he had an idea how the security system could track comings and goings, and what that looked like. At the same time, given his secret daily dalliance with Kessinger, he knew the loopholes in the security.

b). Anadarko

We have no idea what Kessinger and Watts discussed when they spoke on the phone, and there are virtually no text messages between Watts and Kessinger that weren’t scrubbed.

In the photo taken at Myrtle Beach where Watts is “standoffish”, he’s on his phone, and we know a lot of that activity included the regular transfer of images – specifically of Kessinger. What we don’t know, as mentioned, is the substance of their communications besides the pictures. Aside from the lovey dovey stuff, and perhaps plans for the future, and aside from how Watts was framing what was going on with him and his wife in North Carolina, Kessinger may have casually communicated work issues from time to time.

She may have mentioned leaks or safety issues at several sites, and what the operators were doing, and where. Perhaps CERVI 319, and/or other well sites came up during these conversations.

In conclusion, on page 588 of the Discovery Documents, we see Watts told Agent Lee he wasn’t sure whether Shan’ann told anyone about their possible separation.  We know she told her mother, and her mother told her colleagues at Hair Jazz. We don’t know when that happened however. We don’t know whether, when the couple went out the door, whether Sandi confided with her colleagues in a gossipy kind of way, that her daughter and son-in-law were arguing, and that he told her he wanted a separation. It’s difficult to imagine Shan’ann not telling her family immediately, and Watts had to have anticipated this too.

Trouble was, Shan’ann was in a bind with Thrive. How to play a Thriving divorce while pregnant? Wouldn’t it be smarter to keep up the pretense that they were married and Thriving to keep the income they desperately needed, rolling in? And this was perhaps Watts’ critical mistake. He didn’t know what it would look like, how it would play out or who Shan’ann would tell. As it turned out, Shan’ann told everyone about her pregnancy regardless. The next step for Shan’ann was broadcasting the happy news on Facebook.

#18 July 21st, 2018: 12 Weeks: A Thrive event in Moore County, or Drag Racing at Bandimere Speedway – which would be your poison? #1yearagotodayCW

On Saturday, July 21st, Shan’ann was 12 weeks pregnant. She put this image up on her Facebook page.

37578946_10155571525926935_1201367550294753280_n

Many have speculated whether Nichol Kessinger saw this image or others like it. In the noise of Thrive crap, they would be hard to spot, and it took me a long time to find this one. As it turned out, the day Shan’ann reached 12 weeks coincided with a Thrive local event. According to Shan’ann’s Thrive badge she was a 80K VIP promoter [and this was also part of Shan’ann’s bio on Facebook], which is the second highest ranking. Addy was at 200K.

Meanwhile, back in Colorado, Watts was with Kessinger at the Bandimere Speedway. Compare in your mind the fun of promoters selling powders to, and recruiting each other on a Saturday, to this:

On July 21st we also have confirmation [not that it’s any big surprise] that Watts was deleting a lot of the content on his device.

Fullscreen capture 20190718 232259

Based on what he said during his Second Confession, Watts was clearly having the time of his life with Kessinger, including on this day. Being with her, here, brought back fond childhood memories. He had to feel a bitter resentment rising when he compared this happy, vivid reminiscing to Shan’ann causing havoc with his folks in North Carolina.

At the same time he felt she was costing him a fairy tale, Kessinger seemed to be offering him another, and he was tempted. One year later, based on what’s still on Watts’ phone and what he deleted, it’s obvious which life he preferred, and what choice he was slowly gravitating towards.

#13 July 16th, 2018: Fairy Tale, but with Interruptions #1yearagotodayCW

On July 16th, Watts is showing signs of being completely smitten. He’s taking photos of flowers and Googling Dave Bunk Minerals possibly to buy Kessinger a gift. He’s also taken it upon himself to fix Kessinger’s Toyota. What this shows is he’s become not only fixated on Kessinger, he’s already embarking on a new life and lifestyle with her.

Fullscreen capture 20190708 110939

He’s able to do this because of the unprecedented space Shan’ann gives him – 5 whole weeks.

The series of intermittent  phone calls between Watts and his wife in the afternoon, lasting almost 33 minutes, looks to be argumentative, again. Bear in mind this is only the first week after Nut Gate, and Nut Gate remained a serious issue even when Watts finally traveled to see his folks in North Carolina a few weeks later, in early August.

While we have the impression that Watts wanted a new life with Kessinger, and that’s why he murdered his family, in reality he was already in the new life to a large extent before the crime. The crime was committed to allow him to stay in that life, for the status quo to continue.

Each time Shan’ann called him she painfully interrupted his fairy tale, reminding him that eventually he would have to make a choice between one life and another, one face and another. This is how and where the psychology of premeditation takes root – maybe not consciously at first, but through many small triggers, desires, thoughts and wishes. And over time someone emerges as a preferred choice, and someone else as an increasing threat to that perfect present, that fantasized Happily Ever After.

#10 July 13th, 2018: Chris Watts checks Facebook #1yearagotodayCW

Unusually on July 13th – which was also Friday the 13th in 2018 – Watts called Shan’ann. Seven minutes later he called her a second time. Two hours later Watts logged into Facebook. We don’t know for sure, but it’s possible Watts had been alerted by his folks at this point that Shan’ann had blocked them on social media [or vice versa], and that Shan’ann had ranted about Nut Gate.

Fullscreen capture 20190708 110854-003Fullscreen capture 20190708 110909

When Watts returned from work he called Shan’ann, then called her back a few minutes later. In all Watts called Shan’ann four times that day and they spoke for a total of 25 minutes. These conversations were probably highly-charged, argumentative and aggressive.

Is this the “demon possession” Watts is referring to now from Dodge prison?

#8 July 11th, 2018: Before and After Work Calls, and All Smiles on Social Media #1yearagotodayCW

Shan’ann is still doing all the calling, typically first thing in the morning before Watts goes to work, and in the afternoon, shortly after he arrives back. Where is Watts when he receives these calls? At home, or with Kessinger?

Fullscreen capture 20190708 110854-001

This also raises the question, if his GPS-rigged work truck was always parked at home, Watts probably drove to Kessinger in the Lexus early in the afternoon, after work, and at the crack of dawn, before work. Her home and his his were close to each other, and his was on the way to work coming from Kessinger’s home.

This could also explain why the garage sensor was “intentionally” broken – all those trips through the garage door weren’t just him going to work, it was him returning the Lexus.

Meanwhile, Shan’ann’s social media around the same time is all smiles and positivity. While she’s hating on Watts’ folks she love love loves her “energy, mood support, patience and just feeling great”. She’s on her “A” game, clearly wearing her patches during the pregnancy, and doing the Thrive-themed pregnancy spiel. Her first trimester is “ideal” and she’s off to color her hair.

Fullscreen capture 20190705 222223Fullscreen capture 20190705 222229

Was Nichol Kessinger really not reading these posts on Watts’ wife’s public profile? And wouldn’t Le-Vel have been concerned about one of their promoters using her social media to go nuclear on her own family like she had on July 9th?

#7 July 10th, 2018: Nut Gate Aftermath #1yearagotodayCW

It’s unlikely Watts knew about Shan’ann ranting about his folks on social media on the day she posted them [July 9th]. From the Phone Data Review Watts only appears to be aware of it three days later on July 13th, and July 14th, when he – atypically – logs onto Facebook.

24 hours after Nut Gate Shan’ann is surprised her husband is quiet and distant. Watts admits “being short” to her, but he tells her he still loves her.

Fullscreen capture 20190708 110854

When Watts tells Shan’ann he wants to clear his head, what he’s really saying [if only to himself], is he wants to clear his head of her. And a month later, he succeeded.

#6 July 9th, 2018: Nut Gate: “My heart is still racing 30 mins later and tears of anger…” #1yearagotodayCW

This post is likely to be controversial, and trigger venting, so take a deep breath before reading further, and remember, we’re trying to understand the people in this scenario and why they did what they did.

We don’t want to project or transfer who we are onto them. Whether we think peanuts or tree nuts were the real problem, or whether Nut Gate was justified or irrelevant isn’t the point – it’s what they thought, how they reacted, and how the dynamics played out in terms of their personalities.

Now, to appreciate just how much is missing from the Discovery Documents, and Phone Data Review in particular, have a look at this vanilla version of July 9th.

Fullscreen capture 20190708 110841


Scroll down from here to the end of the post, and all that mess is the messy business of family dynamics and human psychology. It doesn’t fit into the neat, black and white confines of a few lines in the Phone Data Review, yet it’s absolutely integral to understanding criminal motives and the underlying mechanisms of what drove a man to annihilate his family.

For an amateur investigator glossing through the timeline, this incident would be easy to miss. The only telltale clue that shit had really hit the fan from the official Phone Data Review is Watts putting himself on record by saying:

“It’s not fucking cool at all…”

36413465_10155526569601935_4512621073031757824_n

But it takes a real sleuth who knows his way around social media to dig up the true meat and potatoes of what went down that day.  Shan’ann vented on the afternoon of July 9th, perhaps not just about nuts – that was just the trigger. She had a lot on her plate. The pregnancy. Her lupus. Her husband becoming cold and distant. And the widening maw of a money malaise that just wouldn’t go away.

So when Shan’ann tore into  Watts’ mother, she was really crying tears of anger at the world.

fullscreen-capture-20181020-094102

In the post above, which I analyzed in more detail in TWO FACE TWO POLLYANNAS, Shan’ann implies this wasn’t the first time there was a nut incident with her in laws. It could be the pistachios were out earlier in the day, and then the ice cream came out later, or that the pistachios were found on a different day and then “today” – again – another issue.

fullscreen-capture-20181020-095137

So we see when Watts called his mother, Shan’ann was there and overheard it. This also seemed to set her off, hearing Cindy lay down the law not only to her, but to her son, and indirectly to her child, and Shan’ann felt powerless as a result.

fullscreen-capture-20181020-094518 (1)

As much as we can sympathize with Shan’ann, Facebook is not the place to vent about family.

We know that as the deadline approached for Shan’ann to announce the gender of her baby, Watts was dreading her doing this as it would spell the end of his affair with Kessinger. If Nut Gate proved anything, it was once Shan’ann felt scorned, she would turn to social media to weaponize her anger, and she didn’t care how many lives she burned in the process.

One year on there are many who still say:

Why didn’t he just get a divorce?

This is why. This was over nuts in icecream. Imagine the reaction over a full-blown affair with a coworker while she’s pregnant, while they have no money, and one that will lead to divorce and losing her home?

Why didn’t he just get a divorce?

It’s also worth noting that Shan’ann applies a double standard here. She claims in her posts above that she doesn’t have any tree nuts in her home. In fact, like many children were serious allergies, Ceecee was particularly allergic to peanut butter.

This is repeatedly stressed in the autopsy report. Meanwhile Shan’ann took this photo of a jar of Jif creamy peanut butter in her own kitchen.

One year on we ought to ask:

Did Shan’ann overreact, and if she did, did that seal her fate?

The answer to this question isn’t what you or I think, it’s what her husband thought. And we know now what he thought. In the CBI Report Watts was asked about Nut Gate and whether it had any impact on his thoughts, feelings and emotions. Not surprisingly, it had a huge impact.

While it’s overly simplistic and reductionist to say Shan’ann’s venting gave Watts the license to vent as well, human psychology, and criminal psychology, does often work that way. But clearly, there is a difference between burning someone close to you on social media, and blocking family, and triple murder. In terms of social symbology however, there’s absolutely no difference.

#5 July 8th, 2018: The Day Before Nut Gate #1yearagotodayCW

July 8th was a Sunday. It didn’t start off well. Watts texted his wife at 05:15 in response to questions about not calling her [or answering her calls] the night before. [He was with Kessinger at the Orchard Mall, watching Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom].

Watts’ excuse was that he fell asleep.

We don’t know what Shan’ann’s answer was to his text, or whether she answered at all. Watts was prompted to call Shan’ann shortly afterwards.

In both his “confessions” Watts claims he was asleep when Shan’ann arrived home from the airport, and in his Second Confession that they had sex and then that they slept afterwards, a period that couldn’t have been longer than three hours.  It’s difficult to believe Shan’ann would want to get the airport off her [as Watts claimed in the First Confession], but be okay to have sex and not want to wash up, or remove her make-up afterwards.

In any event, on the day before Nut Gate Shan’ann was not happy with her husband. At 16:44 she called him and spoke for 22 minutes, her longest conversation with him thus far. On Sunday night, like all the other nights in July, Watts slept at his mistresses home.
