The mistress who “softly spoken” father-of-two Chris Watts murdered his family to be with is back in touch with him, three years after changing her identity and disappearing, the killer has claimed from jail.

Watts – who along with wife Shanann and their daughters Celeste, 3, and Bella, 4, were the subject of last year’s chilling Netflix documentaryAmerican Murder: The Family Next Door – was convicted of murdering his pregnant wife and their innocent daughters because he wanted to start a new life with his mistress, Nichol Kessinger.

He dumped the bodies of his family in a remote oilfield owned by his former employer in August 2018, and is now serving multiple life sentences in a Wisconsin prison – while Ms Kessinger applied to change her name and disappeared after being linked to the brutal murders.



Now, under her new name, Watts has claimed that Ms Kessinger wrote to him inside the Dodge Correctional Institution in Waupun, Wisconsin, fellow inmate David Carter told The Daily Mail.

“He told me she said that she needed to speak to him to clear some things up,” Carter said.

“He wouldn’t tell me exactly what she had said.”
