Reality cases normally leave us in shock but this one takes the cup. The American case that was a global hit is coming to Netflix, and Chris Watts will leave you jaw dropped in American Murder: The Family Next Door official trailer.
The streaming service recently released a brand-new trailer for American Murder: The Family Next Door and the documentary takes a look inside the marriage of Shanann Watts and Chris Watts as well as the triple-murder case that made international headlines.
Th whole story is told through archival footage that includes social media posts, law enforcement recordings, text messages and never-before-seen home videos, American Murder will also remind followers that Chris is not the man he appeared to be before he confessed to murdering his wife.
“I just want you to know a little bit of my story,” Shanann said in an old Facebook video shown in the trailer. “I went through one of the darkest times of my life and then I met Chris and he’s the best thing that has ever happened to me.”
Later on in the preview, an audio recording is played of a friend who called police after they questioned why Shanann couldn’t be reached. Soon after, Chris is being interrogated by detectives in Frederick, Colo. where Shanann and her two young daughters went missing.
“There’s only one person in this room that knows what the truth is,” a detective told Chris. “In about five minutes, there’s gonna be two of us.” According to NBC News, his plea deal spared him the death penalty.
