There are some new details that have been released about the ongoing investigation with Chris Watts and his murdered family. At this time, we are asking our readers to pray for everyone involved.
Chris Watts is facing three charges of first-degree murder, two counts of killing a child under 12 years old, one count of unlawful termination of a pregnancy, and three counts of tampering with a deceased body in connection with the deaths of his pregnant wife and their two children.
The latest news, however, is leaving millions in shock after discovering Watts had a secret male lover during his marriage to his wife. A man has come forward claiming he had an affair with Watts. The two met on a gay dating app, according to the man.
"An unidentified man told HLN's Ashley Banfield that he had a sexual relationship with alleged triple-murderer Chris Watts, calling him 'one of the most gentle people I've ever met,' according to a tweet.
The unidentified man says that Watts told him that he was a victim of emotional abuse and that his marriage was in shambles. He said that Watts told him he didn't know what to do due to the children.
"Let's go on record saying I don't know if any of it is the truth, but he told me he was the victim of emotional and verbal abuse," the man said in an anonymous phone call to the news outlet.
"And he was trapped in a loveless marriage, and he didn't know any way out because of the kids," the unidentified man said.
Police officials say that Watts killed his kids and pregnant wife before dumping his daughters' bodies into an oil tank in a remote oil site north of Denver, Colorado. When police arrived, Watts told them that his wife killed their girls and Watts said that he then attacked his wife out of rage.
At this time, the investigation is still ongoing. We are asking our readers to pray for the investigation and for everyone involved.
