The parents of killer dad Chris Watts have spoken out a week after a new documentary aired on Netflix about their son’s horrific crimes.
After killing his wife, Watts drove her body and his daughters to an oil worksite owned by a previous employer, about 65 kilometres from the family’s home, and smothered the girls with a blanket.
The story made headlines around the globe after Watts made an emotional appeal for information to find his wife and children when they were believed to be missing.
Recently, a Netflix documentary aired detailing Watts’ crimes and chronicled the investigation into what happened to his wife and kids.
Watts’ parents Ronnie and Cindy told The Sun their son is yet to view the documentary and has turned to religion. They regularly speak with him as he serves a life sentence.
They said they have watched the documentary.
Ms Watts said she can’t move on from what her son did.
“There's not one day that goes by that I don't wake up with them on my mind, I go to sleep with them on my mind, I will never, ever get over this. It's something that stays with you,” she told The Sun.
Mr Watts’ added while the couple still love their son, their lives aren’t complete without their grandchildren.
“We still love our son no matter what and we miss our grandbabies. We're trying to move forward but it's a very hard task,” he told the paper.
Letters from the killer dad have also been published as part of a book titled ‘Letters from Christopher’.
In one of the letters shown to Daily Mail TV, Watts revealed the moments leading up to his family’s death.
Watts wrote of an argument he had on August 13 with his wife just before he murdered Shanann, Cece and Bella.
It’s believed he plotted the killings to be with his mistress.
