Chris Watts Is ‘Triggered’ by Netflix Documentary, Which ‘Makes Him Feel a Lot of Shame’: Source
“American Murder: The Family Next Door” began streaming on September 30
Chris Watts, the man who murdered his pregnant wife and two daughters, has found a way to pass the time as he spends his days in prison: He is corresponding with multiple women, PEOPLE confirms.
“He got a lot of letters at first,” says a source who has spoken with Watts in jail. “Many of them are from women who thought he was handsome and felt compassion for him. He had nothing better to do, so he wrote them back. And he started having penpals. A couple of them stood out, and they’ve kept in contact.”
And are the women troubled by Watts’ horrific crimes?
“Believe it or not, no,” the source says. “They have compassion on him, despite what he did.”
