Watts Family Murder Latest: Colorado Mother and Daughters' Bodies Believed to Be Found, Alleged Killer Father Denied Bail

Police believe they have found the bodies of a Colorado mother and her daughters who went missing on Monday.

Shanann Watts, 34, and her two daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste, were reportedly killed by the husband and father, Christopher Watts. On Wednesday, Christopher confessed to kithe alleged murders and has now been arrested on three charges of murder and three counts of evidence tampering.

According to Denver 7, local authorities are "quite certain" they have discovered the body of Shanann Watts—who was pregnant at the time of death with a son to be named Niko. They also said they know where the two girls have been buried, but have not yet recovered them. The bodies were reportedly buried on land owned by Anardarko Petroleum.

"At this point we have been able to recover a body we're quite certain is Shanann Watts' body," Colorado Bureau of Investigation Director John Camper told reporters, according to CNN.

Christopher Watts appeared in court on Thursday. He was denied bail and is being held at the Weld County Jail. The Weld County Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Shanann Watt's brother, Frankie Rzucek, uploaded a post to Facebook saying he "just wants to know why. My precious family, my one and only sibling, my sister Shanann, 2 adorable nieces Bella and Celeste and her soon to be found out unborn son Niko," Rzucek wrote. "I just want 30 seconds alone with that heartless psychopath. May Satan have mercy on his soul."

Rzucek believed it was obvious his brother-in-law was responsible. "He was the only one with them and backed his truck into the garage. Doesn't take a genius to know who was suspect. My blood is boiling and the pain and anger and sadness I have in my heart. Nothing absolutely nothing would get in my way of taking away his life like he did mine and my ENTIRE FAMILY."

Christopher Watts spoke on camera to the news station and his behaviour reportedly raised suspicions from the police. It was revealed at around midnight on Wednesday that an arrest had been made "in connection to the missing person's case."

"They're doing their best right now to see if they can get a scent, to see where they went. If they went on foot, went in a car, went somewhere," Watts told the news station on Tuesday. "I just want them back, I just want them to come back. If they're not safe right now, that's what's tearing me apart."
