Chris Watts' mistress: 'He lied about everything'

Chris Watts and his wife Shanann

Watts has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors in the murders of his wife, Shanann, and the couple's two daughters.

Chris Watts pleaded guilty earlier this month to killing his wife Shanann and their two daughters Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3.

Kessinger sat down for an exclusive interview with the Denver Post, telling the newspaper, "He's a liar". It also says she approached investigators before he was arrested and she was involved in several police interviews where she told them details of their relationship and what he said about his missing family.

The following day, Kessinger said she texted Watts asking what he knew about their disappearance but he told her that he would never harm his family.

Nichol Kessinger opened up about dating Chris Watts without realizing he was still married & talked about the moment he told her his family was 'gone'. Kessinger said she had believed him at that time.

When Nichol Kessinger met Chris Watts through work, she believed he was a single man.

She described Watts as being "very softspoken" and told The Post that she "believed him" when he said he was the father of two girls and was nearing the close of his divorce proceedings.

When the media started reporting on the missing persons' case, Kessinger said she was shocked to find out her boyfriend was still married with a wife who was 15 weeks pregnant.

"When I read the news, I found out he was still married and his wife was 15 weeks pregnant", Kessinger said.

"It got to a point that he was telling me so many lies that I eventually told him that I did not want to speak to him again until his family was found", she said.

At the end of July, when Watts went to visit family in North Carolina, he called to tell Kessinger the divorce was finalized, then asked for help looking for an apartment he and his daughters could live in. "He lied about everything".

Local police performed a welfare check on Shanann and her young daughters after the 34-year-old mother didn't show up for a 1:30 p.m. doctor's appointment.

Meanwhile, Watts had already made shifty television appearances pleading for his family to return home when they were still reported as missing.

Kessinger said that something seemed "off" about his story.

"I was very confused why the media was at his house", Kessinger said.

Within days of the disappearance, Chris Watts was arrested and the bodies of his wife and children were found.
