Chris Watts was sentenced to life in prison in November after he pleaded guilty to killing his pregnant wife and two daughters.
Now, the 33-year-old convicted murderer from Colorado is receiving love letters and fan mail as he begins his new life behind bars
Prosecutors are releasing dozens of letters sent to the murderer.
“In my heart, you are a great guy,” wrote a woman named Candace.
“I’m hoping to brighten your days,” wrote another woman. Someone even sent a picture of herself in a bikini.
Candace, a 39-year-old mother of two, wrote multiple times; her second letter ended with #TEAMCHRIS #LOVEHIM and a doodled heart. “I’ve been watching your interview and I just became attracted to you (don’t ask me why),” she said in one missive, adding that if he wrote back she would “be the happiest girl alive.”
One woman told Watts she didn’t care that he killed his family and to put her on his list of visitors, adding: “Trust me, you will not be sorry.”
Tammy, 36, described herself as “a simple girl living in a small town” and included photos. She noted that it was her first time writing to an inmate and that she was “actually very nervous.”
The Ohio-based woman asked Watts, “Why is someone as pretty as me single? And writing to someone in jail?” (She recently came out of a bad breakup, she explained.)
One letter, from a 39-year-old woman, said, “I want to get to know you soooo bad its not even funny.”
“Literally your on my mind almost every single day since you were in the news,”
Watts admitted to killing his wife, Shanann, and their daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste and loading the bodies into his truck and dumping them at an oil work site, after first telling police they were missing.
In a deal with prosecutors, Watts pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in exchange for avoiding the death penalty.
He’s serving three life sentences.
Nikolas Cruz, the shooter who killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has also received fan letters during his time behind bars, police say
One person asked Cruz how he was “holding up” and then asked to be “writing buddies” before ending the letter with a smile. Another letter included photos from a woman in a bra and underwear as she sucked on a popsicle, according to CNN.
