Evil Chris Watts had a 'heart to heart' with his father before confessing to authorities.
Before then he has told detectives in Colorado a 'shifting' story about his missing wife, Shanann Watts, and their two young daughters.
Watts, 33, initially told them that he and Shan'ann, 34, had an emotional talk about separating.
This talk reportedly took place on August 13 at 5am before he left to go and work in Arizona.
Later he corrected himself by saying the conversation about their marriage was at 4 a.m. and "they were both upset and crying."
And he told authorities that his wife was going to see a friend.
A neighbor's surveillance video confirmed two things for certain: that Shan'ann was dropped off at home just before 2 a.m. on Aug. 13 and that Chris was seen driving away about three and a half hours later.
On August 15 authorities called off the search for the pregnant mom and daughters Bella and Celeste, reporting they were dead.
Prosecutors claim the victims were all killed inside their home although the circumstances remain a mystery.
There is still doubt has Watts has blamed his wife for what happened. He claimed that his wife killed their kids.
An important development came after investigators discovered that he was having an affair with a co-worker, which he denied.
After being questioned about the affair Watts told police he would 'tell the truth' after he spoke with his dad.
He then revealed his wife and children were dead and their bodies were concealed at an oil work site.
Chris was arrested late on Aug. 15, the same day he was fired from the oil company where he had worked.
He is charged with first-degree murder, among other crimes, in all three deaths.
