Confusion, disbelief remain over man who allegedly killed family in Colorado

Shanann Watts planning gender reveal party before her alleged murder

Shanann Watts planning gender reveal party before her alleged murder

Autopsies were completed Friday on Shanann Watts, 34, and her daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste.

The daughters stayed home with Watts in Colorado while Shanann was on the trip, she told police. He did not respond to multiple messages seeking comment.

When asked by the reporter whether they argued, Watts said, "We had an emotional conversation, I'll leave it at that".

The motion asks a judge to order that DNA samples be taken from the children's throats.

But family members remain baffled by the murders, and police remain tight-lipped about how the woman and girls were killed, and what the suspected motive was.

The family's two-storey home is just outside Frederick, a small town on the grassy plains north of Denver, where fast-growing subdivisions intermingle with drilling rigs and oil wells.

Husband Christopher Watts, 33, is being held without bail, and faces three counts of murder and three counts of interfering with evidence.

Frankie Rzucek, who is identified on Shanann Watts' Facebook page as her brother, posted overnight on his page saying he just wanted "to know why".

Twitter suspends conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for a week
First reported by CNN , Alex Jones will be unable to send tweets for the next week, but the operators of his account will still be able to read tweets.

According to a June 2015 bankruptcy filing, Watts had gotten a job six months earlier as an operator for Andarkco - with his annual salary indicated to be around $61,500 (£48,212). Documents show they had amassed more than $70,000 worth of debt, mostly from credit card purchases.

The attorneys said they consulted with DNA expert Richard Eikelenboom who said in court records that he has experience taking samples from dead bodies and "getting good results after strangulation".

"We're dumbfounded, we don't get it. Lost". Shanann was an awesome woman, mother, friend, and overall person. The two women quickly became friends, and before long they were texting or calling each other nearly daily.

Nick and Amanda Thayer were close with the couple and let Chris Watts stay at their home once they learned that Shanann and their daughters were missing.

"I called her three times, texted her about three times just to say "what's going on", he told the Denver7 reporter.

Shanann, who did direct sales for a multi-level marketing company that sold health supplements, was extremely active on Facebook, posting clients' weight-loss success stories as well as her photos from her own seemingly happy home life on a daily basis. "Bella, she's the more calm, cautious, mothering type, and she's more like me - she's more calm".

Accusations that a man killed his pregnant wife and two young daughters is prompting questions about Colorado's lack of a law allowing homicide charges in the violent deaths of fetuses.

"Unless a child is born and lives independently from the mother and is then killed due to something that happens after the child is born alive, you can not bring a murder charge", he said. The cause of their deaths has not been made public.
