Chris Watts had an ongoing secret affair with Nichol Kessinger. Chris was out to play while the wife was out of town and took his mistress to expensive restaurants and to numerous events. They even spent the 4th of July in the home Chris Watts shared with his wife Shanann. Although it was just a sexual relationship in Nichols mind, Chris was much more serious about the relationship.
According to the Denver Post, Nichol Kessinger started dating Christopher Watts in July of 2018 while his wife Shanann was away for six weeks.
It wasn’t until the Chris Watts wife and two daughters went missing in August that Kessinger learned that Chris had never started divorce proceedings with his wife, who was 16 weeks pregnant, and that he had been lying to her for the entire relationship, which lasted less about two months.
Nicole has never doubted that he killed his wife, Shanann, and their two daughters, Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3.
“I don’t think there is a logical explanation for what he did,” she said. “It’s a senseless act, and it’s horrific.”
It’s a living nightmare to have been involved with him at all. He seemed to not care about his family at all which was a red flag to me so I knew something grave had happened.
