Moment Chris Watts acts ‘suspicious’ as ​neighbour warns police about killer dad

Disturbing police bodycam footage shows Chris Watts acting strangely while talking to a police officer about the disappearance of his wife and daughters.

In the clip, the killer dad is swaying from foot to foot and seems jittery at the family home in Frederick, Colorado, blinking rapidly while he is questioned by officer Scott Coonrod.

He says: "Thank you for your time officer," and shakes hands with the cop before leaving in what his neighbours thought was an unnaturally hasty way.

"I hope something comes up," his neighbour Nate Trinastich tells him as the dad retreats back into his home.

When he is sure Chris is gone, Nate turns to the officer conducting the welfare check and whispers: "He's not acting right at all.

"He's never fidgety, he's never rocking back and forth. He never talks. The fact that here's over here blabbing his mouth makes me kind of suspicious of something."

The police bodycam from August 2018 was shown as part of a new Tubi crime documentary, Suburban Nightmare: Chris Watts, that has been streaming since Friday (January 14).

Another neighbour called Vonda Knox recalled: "Chris was just very uncomfortable. Like, 'This is not my comfort zone, I'm not comfortable with this'.

"And when the officer finally did say 'Go ahead and leave', it looked like to me that he bolted for the door."

Chris later confessed to murdering his wife Shannon by strangulation at their five-bedroom home in Frederick, Colorado when he was brought into the police station for questioning.

He said he had murdered his daughters through suffocation after initially lying, claiming their mother had killed them after he asked for a separation and he'd then killed her in revenge.

The body of his wife was found in a shallow grave and his daughters' corpses were nearby in a crude oil tank.

He was given five life sentences in a plea bargain that stopped him from receiving the death penalty.
