Body of missing Colorado woman found

Thursday, August 16, 2018

FREDERICK, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say they have found the body of a pregnant Colorado woman reported missing this week and believe they know where the bodies of her two children are. The announcement Thursday came a few hours after police said they had arrested Christopher Watts, 33, in the disappearance of his wife, Shanann, 34, and their two daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste.

John Camper, director of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, said investigators have strong reason to believe they know where the girls' bodies are and are trying to recover them.

Watts was arrested Wednesday night and was due to appear in court Thursday. He hasn't been charged yet, and it isn't known if he has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf.
