HOURS after he killed his pregnant wife and children, Chris Watts denied having anything to do with their disappearance, according to text messages to his mistress.
In 2018, Watts admitted to smothering his two daughters to death before dumping their bodies in oil tanks.
He said he killed his pregnant wife, Shanann, in the same fashion before leaving her body in a shallow grave.
In a three-hour police interview, Nichol Kessinger, Watts' mistress of two months, told officers she met him through work, claiming he said he was separated from his wife and planning to get a divorce, People reported.
"There were several discussions that we had about his current relationship and where it had gone. He talked about his kids from time to time. But the thing was that he was never hostile. It was never anything aggressive. It was still very kind. He was just like, 'This is not working,’” Kessinger said in the video, according to People.
She went on to say nothing scared her or seemed out of the ordinary during their relationship.

When news of the family’s disappearance appeared on the news, Kessinger texted Watts.
"I kept asking him, 'What did you do, Chris? What did you do?' I asked, 'Where's your family,’” she said. “So I texted Chris one last time, and I told him, "If you did anything bad, you're going to ruin your life and you're going to ruin my life. I promise you that."
Watts responded and said, "I didn't hurt my family, Nicky."
