Tiffany Mathis : It makes me wonder if he wasn't really expecting such a large media coverage and it made him shit himself, just a little bit. With all the stuttering, empty answers, he says "like" every 2 seconds, and a flat affect...he pretty much busted himself just by speaking.

Tobie Hand : The cameraman knew! He zoomed in on the marks on his neck

Joe Mamma : Fry him in a vat of boiling oil, please.

Kimock7 : Interesting psychological observations with this killer: at 3:11 he is laughing - yes laughing while answer questions while standing up with his arms crossed. If for a second, he thought he was going to get away with this, he is a very low IQ killer. It's actually good this interview was caught on film because future interviews with husbands who's wives go missing can be compared to this emotionless - compassion less asshole killer - may he be executed quickly.

Wendy Crayon : Monster!

Nova Time : Dog knows he's lying at 7:12.

Carlyn Fleming : The interviewer and cameraman suspected him 100% they are drawing out his reactions. Good for them. This is chilling.

hawkins 0416 : People like this should be put in solitary confinement and fed extremely healthy food to keep them alive as long as possible and have tv's installed behind bullet proof glass on all four walls and the ceiling, with high definition surround sound and home videos of his family and crime scene footage playing on a loop non stop 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Plumbles : 3.20 when he’s talking about them snuggling on the couches he says “I’m ne..” then starts stumbling over his words..what was he going to say? “I’m never going to do that/see them do that again?” 😱😱

Magdalena Martinez : HE HAS SCRATCHES ON HIS NECK!!! HELLO??

ana lenard : Who says i miss to tell them if u dont eat ur not gonna get a dessert? 😓 that is one wird comment ..

Marniee White : Those working dogs trying to tell y'all something! "Like" urgently!

Mike B : Thanks to her friend that was persistent on getting ahold of her that day. I'm sure he thought he had days to get his story straight and she knocked it down to hours .

Dirty Hippie : 3:22 he was about to say he wasn’t going to kiss the little angels but he stopped himself. And then on he was talking about the girls as if saying goodbye forever. It doesn’t seem to have been planned like it was a passion crime. He really seems distant from his wife and he really tries to act like a loving and concerned parent. But his feelings are not there.

KerryBerry1975 : Camera man zoomed in on the scratch on his neck. They knew they were interviewing a murderer.

Corey Mullis : He's reminiscing way to early! Hes talking about things to early as if they been gone for a long time, not 1 or 2 days. Its because he knows their gone and they wont be coming back, thats why hes reminiscing. This guy couldn't complete one sentance, like it was strait from his brain and not straight from his heart. When a person is speaking from the heart they don't stutter, because it's real and untainted. This man is another Scott Peterson a complete psychopath!

Kimberly Selepec : Never once did he say anything about missing his wife or concern for her or about her being pregnant. He does not talk about her like he loved her at all. He does talk about missing the children, but more for him and his needs, of what he missed.

Deborah D : My ex-husband was this kind of psychopath. He just never had the opportunity to do this. Seriously, people don't know what it's like to live with one of these sociopaths. They have no conscience, period., no matter what. Everyone thinks they are so normal .

kobo fan : He reminds me a lot of my ex husband: tall, fit, handsome, well-groomed...he was taking such good care of himself because he was busy attracting other women lol!! This guy obviously has a girlfriend and wanted to get rid of the wife/family (no child support etc)

Michele Paccione : Smiling and laughing when he talks about the family he murdered. Despicable.

guitarrowhead mv : Scratch on neck, no wedding ring on, speaking in past tense, no emotion.....have fun in prison you POS. How could someone wipe out their entire family? I wish I had a beautiful family like them, and this narcissist threw his away. Unbelievable. He’ll be getting a pink sock for Xmas for sure!

3115 Evelyn : That red mark on his neck was probably when shannan tried to defend herself):

PumpkinEskobarr : I just don't understand people who do these things. If you don't want your family or the responsibility, just leave and never come back. Forfeit your parental rights. Just go. Living with a broken heart that can be mended. But death... that's final. And he gets to live without a broken heart... because he is dead inside and a shell of a person.

vanessa southern : THE DOGS KNOW! DOGS SMELL DEATH. I wouldn’t be surprised it they saw something sinister when he was pulling bodies out house to hide. Dogs are clever.

Resz7 : The police probably saw right through him immediately.

Lee R : He was trying to set up timelines. She got home at 1:48am...Her buddy came by at 12:10 the next day. All precise times. He knew he was busted. The walls caved in. Who says “her people” about their wife? He strangled all three of them.

Susan Smith : This guy probably has a girlfriend and wants to be free, and not pay any child support. That probably is the motive.....and maybe an insurance policy on the wife or kids as an added bonus. This guy should be executed.

Natalie Wood : He is almost smiling... Not a look of a worried man. Bastard. You're going straight to hell

The Geordie Golovkin : ALSO he has a scratch on his neck🧐 Indicates he’s been in a physical struggle.

Scott Cornelius : He should of taken some acting lessons prior to this interview.

tekkieman : Emotionless. No feelings. Ice cold... Classic psychopath - using people as objects and throwing them away when they are no longer necessary. You never know who is sleeping next to you....

starrypluto : I have no words... this is a mad mad world. Spiritually devoid. Sad. Dead. Empty.

Bill Lee : I've shown more emotion after I've lost the remote control to my television. I said to myself two days ago this guy did it. What an absolute lunatic. He actually looks relieved. Unbelievable.

Jenna Kay : “Shannan, Bella, Celeste..IF YOU ARE OUT THERE, please come back.” As if they may or may not be “out there”. This was chilling and uncomfortable to watch... And DUH people, the cops knew it was him that’s why he’s sitting in jail, awaiting trial for murder right now.. And from all I’ve read and seen about this case, this man was not happy that she was pregnant again. I know that for a fact because if you watch the video were she brakes the news to him, it’s very clear to see he’s not happy about her pregnancy in the video. Also he was possibly cheating(which I’m willing to bet big money on that he was cheating) and/or starting to feel the financial burden.. But through all that a normal person would get a f*ckig divorce if they were really that unhappy. I REALLY NEED TO KNOW what drives a person to do something like this... Like what happened to this man, and may others just like him in the past, that made it physically psychologically and emotionally possible for him to kill all of them, then stuff their bodies in oil tanks.. Beyonddddd comprehension. One last thing.. at 7:16- that’s not a man who is feeling pain or guilt for the horrendous acts that he has committed.. that’s a man thinking to himself “holy f*ck..... I just completely f*cked myself with this interview”. It’s disturbing and creepy how I can tell that that’s exactly what he was thinking that very moment 7:17.

anthony reyes : He said, "I just want them back", but he's head moving sideways like saying NO I DONT WANT THEM BACK... body language said it all...

Mikey Lee : All the detectives in the comments lol

Lizz Marie : “My kids are my life...” and yet, you took their lives. Makes me sick

El Hayah : that's the danger of thinking that evil has to appear different from us. Evil is within all humans. It doesn't have to come from another country, state, family or be a different color. It's next door, hidden in minds and hearts...could be your friends or a successsful white CEO.

Dyral Washington : Here's my take on the MOTIVE : I don't know if anyone else can tell but this man is Gay and has been living in denial (undercover) for some time and I wouldn't be surprised if his late wife some how discovered that and made him go into a rage, just my theory from reading his vibration. News reports say they had financial problems but that's a unlikely source to cause a man to completely snap and murder his beautiful wife and kids, just reading his vibration I can tell that he's on the DL and maybe somehow his wife caught wind of that, that would account for the "disagreement" they had the day of her disappearance. Leave a comment and tell me what you think.....

Amy Meloney : AND THE 'OSCAR' GOES TO......(The dogs are barking like crazy....they found something! )

Nina Cal6 : He doesn’t even know how to pretend like he gives a shit. But you would think there would be some horror left on his face after what he did and what he put them through.....but there is absolutely nothing. He’s void and heartless.

Hannah Hudson : You can tell he is GUILTY throughout the whole interview! Notice how he isn't wearing his wedding ring? And the redness on his neck. Disgusting!

mariana Jackson : I know the detectives loved that he was such a idiot to do these interviews showed them that he was the one they should be looking at..such a narcissist!

Jim Scofield : Phony as a $3 bill!!! How do you do this to your own babies, then stand in front of cameras and lie to the world!?!? Special place in hell for you buddy!!!

Nick : I watched without sound. He body language and facial expressions are not that of a grieving/worried husband. If you had to guess, you would think this interview was some mundane, barely newsworthy fluff story.

K It : He's laughing from around 3:15 to 4, instead of making himself cry. He couldn't bring up any emotion but his true feeling of happiness & relief that they're dead. I think when he brings up memories of "missing them cuddled up on they'd Minnie mouse couch" that those were the times he looked at them thinking how he would kill them. He's nervous & scared he'll be found out, rocking himself. I do believe he confessed because he was sure they would figure it out & he wanted a lighter sentence. He truly is a monster like someone said before me, hiding beneath the facade of his portrayal of a normal caring human. Idk what happened to make him put himself first so ruthlessly but he chose it, knowing it was wrong. Proven by his near perfection show he puts on for people around him. Watch out for these types people. You can tell from chronic lies you catch them in & pretend remorse. Don't make excuses for their behavior. Avoid them no matter how charming or good-looking they are. They've accepted who they really are & know they cover it up. Recognize & never get caught up with this type. If you are, make them think they don't want you anymore, point out your defects they've never liked. Manipulate to escape making them think it's their idea. They can be stalkers only because of their ego, not love. I'm not a psychologist but I know this type.

3d Gichboy : Why get married and have kids then if all you're going to do is end up killing them instead of being their protector? I mean, what would motivate a man to do such?? A new woman? Then why not run off with her and escape your familial obligations? Why murder EVERYONE!!!??? What good would that do ANYONE involved in this situation?? Did he honestly think he'd just kill them and go on his merry way without anyone raising any questions?? Just wow!! What a horrific and inhumane act!!

Higher Higher : Something interesting... the use of the word 'back' when he says "please come back, please bring her back". This is usually phrased as "please come HOME" in any/most of these types of cases. Bringing someone BACK is usually used when someone's died - "I wish she'd come back/nothing can bring him back" - this man is sick. Also, the reporter asked "what would you like to tell your WIFE" and he's taken to speaking to a non-existent captor, rather than directing his message/plea at his wife. Strange all round.

Joyce Nesselhauf : To see this man lie so straight-faced and directly at the interviewer is bone chilling. To talk about his children and wife like they were still alive knowing he killed them just leaves me speechless. He doesn't want to look as bad in the media so he's blaming his wife for killing the kids now and then he killed her. He wants to be some kind of hero, like, I just love my kids so much that I avenged their deaths. She didn't any more kill those kids than I did. How any one could think that killing their family is a way to solve whatever problems they're having is just horrendous. If you listen closely, he tells the truth to some extent, but in a skewed way. "When I left for work at 5:15 they were still here." Yes, because he hadn't put their bodies in his truck yet. He left for work around 5:30. The defense wanted to check Shanann's nails for DNA. I'm sure he killed her in a way that she couldn't fight back because they haven't said one word about scratches on him. The marks on his neck don't look like scratches to me as much as just a red pimple or something. It's crazy that he let the police in to the house with all of Shanann's stuff still there that a woman would normally take if leaving; purse, phone, car. It's like he decided to kill them and left it right there without any thought to anything else. How could he not know he would get caught? Did they or will they give him a lie-detector test? Does anyone know? It's like the act of killing them just stood alone. He had it all - a decent job, a nice house, beautiful family. Evidently that wasn't enough or good enough. When the name of the woman he was having an affair with comes out, and it will, her life is over. Sometimes a person can hide the fact that they're married, but not in a town that small. The death penalty would be too good for this guy. Nah, he needs to sit in solitary confinement for the rest of his life with no connection to the outside world. Let him wonder what day/year it is. Let him go slowly out of his mind. He won't think about his kids or his wife. He'll think about his loss of freedom, his mistress, the trips he can't take anymore. The devil is coming for you Chris Watts. Hope you're ready.

DearMakeUpDiary : What a terrible actor he is. Good that his bad skills revealed the truth to the world. It was pretty obvious. He must be really stupid to do something like that and think he'd get away with it. Now he lost his family, his friends and lost his own life (freedom). Why not eliminate himself from the picture in the first place? He was the problem NOT THEM. The poor innocents involved didn't have to pay with their lives! I hope justice is served ASAP.
