Women are sending love letters to man serving life sentence for killing wife, daughters
DENVER, Co. (WSET) -- Women are sending love letters to a man who has been sentenced to life in prison for murdering his pregnant wife and two daughters.
Chris Watts is serving life in prison after pleading guilty to murdering his wife, Shanann, and their daughters 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste.
Prosecutors have released dozens of letters that are now pouring in to Watts in prison.
"In my heart, you are a great guy," one woman wrote. "If you do write me back I’d be the happiest girl alive that's for sure."
Inside Edition reported another woman wrote "I find myself thinking a lot about you" and sent a photo of herself in a bikini.
Watts was moved from a prison in Denver, Colorado to one in Wisconsin earlier this month.
A psychologist told Inside Edition that women create a fantasy life for themselves especially with men behind bars.
"It is oftentimes what we talk about when women seem to be attracted by bad boys. It is because they want to be the special person that can turn this life around and be able to attribute that to their own self esteem," Dr. Judy Ho said.
Other examples of men in prison getting love letters include Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, Nikolas Cruz, and Dylann Roof.
