Chris Watts and family

Notorious wife and child killer, Chris Watts, imprisoned at Dodge Correctional Institution in Waupun, Wisconsin, endures a self-imposed torment as he serves a life sentence, The New York Post reports.

According to people who have interacted with Watts behind bars, Watts leads a very sedentary lifestyle, has gained considerable weight and has significantly balded. He also keeps to himself and isn’t popular among most of the other inmates.

“A lot of guys would like to get their hands on him,” Eddie Nieves, who spent a year in prison with Watts, said. “He killed two little girls who didn’t do nothing to deserve it. He’s the lowest of the low at Dodge. A lot of people want to get their revenge for those girls.”

To protect himself, Watts avoids making eye contact with other inmates, and refrains from engaging with newcomers, even during Bible study.

“He’s an outcast,” Dylan Tallman, an inmate who worked on a devotional book with Watts, told the Post. “When people found out that his victims were two little girls, they wanted to kill him. He had nowhere else to turn; I think I was his only friend.”

Tallman said Watts spends most of his time alone in a small cell, reading his Bible and reflecting on the 2018 deaths of his wife, Shanann Watts, and his two children, Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3

“Every day, he thinks about what he did,” Tallman said. “He has photos of the girls and he prays for forgiveness every day. But he knows he can’t undo what he did.”

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Watts pleaded guilty to murdering Shanann, who was pregnant, and their daughters, in August 2018, in Colorado, where they lived.

He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, and was moved to the Wisconsin facility for security reasons.

Authorities alleged that Watts strangled Shanann at their home and then drove her body to a worksite, where he killed his daughters. He buried Shanann in a shallow grave and dumped the girls’ bodies inside oil storage tanks.

Watts was having an affair at the time.

“He’s f–ked in the head,” Nieves added. “When you’re in prison with a lot of guys who did really bad things, but you’re still considered the worst person there, you’re just evil.”

In 2019, a source told PEOPLE that Watts “has nothing to do but think. He thinks about what he did every day. He is tormented by his past and the mistakes he made.”
