Episode 46 - The Chris Watts and Nichol Kessinger Rabbit Hole

Serial Napper

Tonight’s episode is going to be quite different than any of my previous episodes. We’re not actually covering a case in its entirety - because unless you’ve been living on Mars for the past year and a half, you know all about the Chris Watts case and how he murdered his wife, two daughters and unborn son in order to start a new life with his mistress Nichol Kessinger. But there is so much more to this story, I’ve been down a rabbit hole the past few days trying to figure it all out and with Chris Watts wanting a new trial, I think we’re going to be hearing a lot more new details - that are dark. Darker than you can imagine.Enjoy a simulation game where your goal is to help someone out of a kidnapping!http://www.MirrorWorldCreations.com/phoneEnter "NOVEMBER30" (all caps) to get 30% off before November 30!Unmasked YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrsCmBiClI7uCVS2o8uX_3g

Chris Watts: The Nichol Kessinger Question

Small Foreign Fact Check

In the wee morning hours of August 13, 2018, Father of two and husband of almost 6 years Chris Watts strangled his 15 week pregnant wife, Shanann, in their bed in the home that they shared. According to his taped jailhouse confession, Chris then put Shanann’s body into the back seat of his pick-up truck, loaded in his two daughters 4 year old Bella and 3 year old Celeste, into the truck next to their mother’s dead body and drove them to a desolate Colorado oil site where he buried Shannann’s body in a shallow grave before smothering his daughters one after the other and dumping their bodies into an oil tank.What caused this mild-mannered and seemingly happy father to systematically annihilate his entire family before packing up and heading to work like any other day? Had Chris been masking a deep hatred and resentment towards Shannann for years that finally boiled over due to the pressure of adding a third child to a loveless marriage, or was Chris seduced and manipulated by an outside source into committing this atrocity?

Valentine's Day Special: The Chris Watts and Nichol Kessinger Affair

True Crime Psychology and Personality: Narcissism, Psychopathy, and the Minds of Dangerous Criminals

This episode discusses how did the dynamics of the Chris Watts-Nichol Kessinger affair contributed to the Watts family murders. The dynamics in this affair appear to be a critical factor in this case. One theory of the dynamics is that Chris Watts was introverted and insecure and Nichol Kessinger was confident, extraverted, and experienced in romantic relationships. This may have led to a power differential that unintentionally contribute to the horrific murders. This episode also reviews the role that immaturity, the passionate stage of romance, and impulsivity may have had in this case. More Content on Narcissism, Psychopathy, Sociopathy and Antisocial Personality DisorderFor even more, scientifically informed content on psychology and personality check out Dr. Grande's YouTube channelArs Longa MediaTo learn more about or to support Ars Longa Media and this podcast, go to arslonga.media.
