Sociopath Mashups: Chris Watts VS My Father, Dr. John F. Boyle

Moving Past Murder with Collier Landry

Mar 25 2022 • 40 mins

Collier breaks down how Chris Watts's behaviors and victim narcissism mirror his father's behavior, both in the courtroom and once he was in prison. The Watts family murders occurred in Frederick, CO, during the early morning hours of August 13, 2018. Christopher Watts admitted to murdering his pregnant wife Shanann by strangulation. He later admitted to murdering their daughters, four-year-old Bella and three-year-old Celeste, by smothering them with a blanket over their heads. On November 6, 2018, Watts pleaded guilty to multiple counts of first-degree murder as part of a plea deal and was sentenced to five life sentences without the possibility of parole. Episode highlights: • Distorted version of reality - how both men seem to live in a "Walter Mitty" world of their own delusion. • The Victim Narcissist - Both men seem to want the audience to feel sorry for them for all they have been through, completely ignoring the devastation and destruction that they have created. • "You Have a Good Idea, let's go with that!" - AKA the Grabbing at Straws defense, both men seem to latch on to insane ideas in order to push the narrative for their defense.
