This is the moment killer dad Chris Watts is confronted with his neighbour’s security camera footage showing him loading bodies on to his truck.
Watts can be seen struggling to keep his composure as he is shown video, part of which shows him backing his pickup truck up to his garage, before he loads up and drives off.
The video was to then be used to draw out a confession before he was formally charged with murdering his family.
But while he admitted murdering them, he refused to tell police where the bodies were hidden.

His exact motive remains a mystery

An investigation, however, found he had buried Shanann in a shallow grave and dumped his daughters' bodies in tanks at the oil and gas exploration site where he worked.
Last week, police released harrowing pics of the bloodied underwear of his wife who was 15 weeks’ pregnant with their third child at the time.
It transpired Watts had been having a secret affair with lover Nichol Kessinger who has insisted she had no inkling of his evil plan.
His exact motive remains a mystery.

The plea deal spared him the death sentence

On November 6, 2018, Watts sobbed in court as he pleaded guilty to five counts of murder in the first degree, three counts of tampering with a deceased human body, and one count of unlawful termination of a pregnancy.
The plea deal spared him the death sentence.
Watts is currently in a Colorado facility after a judge ruled he was to serve five life sentences without parole for the murders of Shanann, Celeste and Bella Watts.
Footage emerged on Monday showing Watts having his finger and footprints taken in the Weld County Jail.
