Chris Watts is seen acting strangely while speaking with a police officer about the disappearance of his wife and daughters, according to disturbing police bodycam footage.
In the video, the killer father sways from foot to foot and appears jittery as he is questioned by officer Scott Coonrod at the family home in Frederick, Colorado.
“Thank you for your time officer,” he says, shaking the cop’s hand before leaving in an unnaturally hasty manner, according to his neighbors.
As the father retreats back into his home, his neighbor Nate Trinastich tells him, “I hope something comes up.”
Throughout the conversation, the killer’s father is uneasy.
“He’s not acting right at all,” Nate whispers to the officer conducting the welfare check once he’s sure Chris is gone.
“He’s not fidgety, аnd he doesn’t rock bаck аnd forth.” He is а silent mаn. The fаct thаt he’s blаbbing his mouth over here mаkes me suspicious of something.”
