By now everyone knows Chris Watts' story. Watts is currently serving three consecutive life sentences and two more concurrent life sentences as well as three 12-year sentences for separate accounts of tampering with a deceased human body in the murders of his pregnant wife and two daughters. Now there have been leaked transcripts of a book that is said to have been written by Watts' mother, Cindy Watts, and people are not happy about it.
The leaked chapters of a book titled "All My Broken Pieces" reportedly written by Cindy Watts and Kathleen Jamie Watts under the alias "Sarah" have appeared on Facebook as well as Reddit, and are written from Cindy Watts' point of view about her son's murder of his family. Many feel that Cindy is pointing blame at Shan'ann Watts, her daughter-in-law that her son strangled to death while pregnant with the couple's son, for causing her son to commit his crimes.
"If anyone had been interested, or asked me ten years ago, what I wanted, I would have told them I already had it: a good marriage to a fine man and two wonderful children," the first chapter reads. "By “back then,” I have to qualify and say that I mean back before my son married a woman that was wrong for him and began to lose himself, and we began to lose him as well."
She went on to write that "Chris was a really good kid. It’s not just me who says so: everyone who ever met and knew him said so too. He was very gentle and quiet and never caused us a single problem. He was an honor student who loved sports and made a nice life for himself in Mooresville NC, after high school and then Nascar Tech," before adding, "Then he met Shan’ann."
The book goes on to describe how Chris and Shan'ann allegedly met, with multiple chapters posted on a Facebook discussion page titled The State of Colorado vs. Chris Watts.
Although there has been no official confirmation that this is an actual book written by Cindy Watts, fans on the Facebook page are not holding back in their criticism of the mother.
The bit about it being the victims fault is my favourite," wrote one commenter. "Well I didn't think it was the par"Imagine being this type of trash that tries to profit off their son murdering his wife and kids.ents fault, but now I do. What kind of sociopath would write this..." wrote another.
The chapters have been posted on Reddit and the website True Crime Rocket Science II which you can visit to read all the available chapters in their entirety. Meanwhile, another book about Watts titled Letters From Christopher has also been written by Cheryln Cadle who has been exchanging letters with the convicted murdered since his sentencing.
The letters, as reported by The Daily Mail, detail how Chris wrote that he murdered his daughters twice after they both woke up after his initial attempts and that he had previously given Shan'ann Oxycodone in the hopes of causing her to miscarry.
