The bodies of Chris Watts’ two young daughters were found inside oil and gas tanks that “were mostly full,” where their father worked, according to an unidentified source.
It is believed that on Thursday evening Watts placed the bodies of 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste in the oil and gas tanks in order to conceal the smell.
Frederick, Colorado, police officials said in a 6:30 p.m. update Thursday that the bodies of the two young girls were found in close proximity to the other body whom officers strongly believe is Shanann Watts. Her body was found on property owned by Anadarko Petroleum earlier Thursday.
The bodies were found as 33-year-old Christopher Watts sat behind bars at the Weld County Jail on suspicion of murdering his family.
