Colorado authorities recover the bodies of Shanann Watts and two young daughters recovered

Colorado authorities recovered the bodies of his pregnant wife and two young daughters whose father is accused of killing them.

Officials said Chris Watts was arrested Wednesday in connection with the killing of his pregnant wife, Shanann Watts, and two young daughters, Celeste, 3, and Bella, 4, were reported missing Monday by a family friend, according to police in Frederick, about 35 miles north of Denver.

Officials said Thursday that the body believed to be Shanann Watts has been recovered.

Detectives with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Frederick Police Department located two more bodies Thursday “in close proximity” to the body that investigators “strongly believe” is Shanann Watts’, the Town of Frederick announced in a statement.

“When I came home and then walked in the house, nothing. Vanished. Nothing was here,” he told KMGH-TV Tuesday. “My kids are my life. … I mean, those smiles light up my life.”

Friends who spoke with Chris Watts after his family’s disappearance said the only thing missing in the house was his daughter’s treasured baby blanket.
