Friend of Colorado Woman Allegedly Killed by Husband Not Surprised by His Arrest

2018-08-20 21:12
A woman who described herself as a close friend of Shanann Watts, the pregnant Colorado mother who was allegedly killed by husband Chris Watts, revealed that she wasn’t surprised by the arrest of the husband. Nickole Atkinson said that she watched a televised interview with Chris Watts, 33, after Shanann, 34, and their two young daughters, Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, disappeared on Aug. 13. She said she knew something was amiss when Chris Watts appeared unconcerned. “He was defending himself, but it just didn’t make sense. Like in that moment it is kind of surreal. He was just sitting there waiting for something to happen; it just didn’t seem right to me,” Atkinson told ABC. “He just kept saying that he didn’t know where she was and that she was on a playdate. But he couldn’t give us the name of the friend. I knew he had something to do with it the day I was at his house with him, but I didn’t want to think that. Anyone in their right mind will start piecing things together and think something had happened, but you don’t want to go there. You want to believe the best in people.”
