CHRIS WATTS’ LETTER IN ITS ENTIRETY 

April 23, 2019

Expensive Cheryln,

Whats up once more! I hope you’re doing nicely! It has been superior speaking with you on the telephone, however I do know the 15-minute timeframe is a ache. Typically I can get proper again on the telephone however proper now there are different inmates that prefer to be on the telephone as a lot as I do, so I respect their time as nicely. How’s your dad doing, I have been praying on that each day.

Sure, that petition actually blew my thoughts that folks actually need to make me endure like that. Even when they did ever take my footage, they cannot take my reminiscences. An inmate from one other establishment wrote me about that topic

and stated, ‘In the event that they take your footage, they would want to take the photographs from the opposite 500-600 folks that have their household footage up on their cell convicted of the identical act.’

Do I really feel like I must be incarcerated? For the act I dedicated, I most undoubtedly thinks so. Do I think about myself ever doing something like this or be a hazard to

society? I most undoubtedly suppose NOT! If I had been to ever be launched, I do know I’d go straight to a ministry and begin going to jails/prisons and assist inmates. If God led me to be ordained, I’d go that route as nicely; presumably even be a Chaplain. Perhaps the legal guidelines will change at some point. My lawyer workforce may see I used to be totally different and knew that this was a one-time incidence for me. They instructed me that in Europe, the legislation is I’d serve 20 years or so for murder, and in California, after 25 years of imprisonment, on a life sentence you may be launched if you happen to’ve had good conduct. So, there’s hope for everybody to reside outdoors jail partitions. I do know bodily I am behind these partitions, however my spirit is FREE with Christ!

If God retains placing it in your coronary heart that there’s extra to the story than what I instructed the FBI has, you are right. I do not like saying stuff like that over the telephone as a result of I am by no means sure after they display screen my calls. I do know I already instructed you the imaginative and prescient I had earlier than August 13th, after I was mendacity in mattress and all of the lights had been on within the loft and downstairs and I felt so alone. That is precisely what occurred April 14th after I was mendacity in mattress.

I do not know if you would like this within the guide or if God does however listed here are the issues I unnoticed. 1) August 12th after I completed placing the women to mattress, I walked away and stated ‘That is the final time I will be tucking my infants in.’ I knew what was going to occur the day earlier than and I did nothing to cease it! I used to be numb to your complete world. I had actually taken my children to a celebration, performed with water balloons, had a tremendous time, sang songs all the best way dwelling, gave them tub a bathe, ate dinner, learn bedtime tales and sang bedtime songs, and nonetheless nothing registered!! When Shanann needed to be someplace, I at all times loved taking the women locations or enjoying outdoors as a result of it was our alternative to bond, and nonetheless the night time earlier than I could not cease myself from what I knew would happen the subsequent morning.

2) August 13th, morning of, I went to the women’ room first, earlier than Shanann and I had our argument. I went to Bella’s room, then Cece’s room and used a

pillow from their mattress (to kill them). That is why the reason for dying was smothering. After I left Cece’s room, then I climbed again in mattress with Shanann and our argument ensued. After Shanann had handed, Bella and Cece woke again up. I am unsure how they woke again up, however they did. Bella’s eyes had been bruised and each ladies appeared like they’d been by way of trauma. That made the act that a lot worse figuring out I went to their rooms first and figuring out I nonetheless took their lives on the location of the batteries.

3) The rationale the health worker discovered oxycodone in Shanann’s system is as a result of I gave it to her. I believed it might be simpler to be with Nichol if Shanann wasn’t pregnant.

I do not know if this was a religious go to, however I had a dream Cece was dancing subsequent to the chair in my cell. When she was dancing, all of my folders on the chair

began shifting and I believed she was in bother, so I stated Be careful, get away, be careful! Then I wakened. I am hoping she comes again! I hope everybody comes to go to me. I am making an attempt to see if I can clear my head higher earlier than I fall asleep to assist.

I like that John 10:10 passage you despatched. I want I may’ve had an open ear to listen to the Lord calling me again in June/July/August. If we run after sin, we cannot hear our Shepherd calling us. I could not discern between the nice spirits and the evil spirits and that ultimately lodged me right into a deep pit I could not climb again out of.

Take care and God Bless!

Chris
