Watts – visibly restless – was caught by surprise when his neighbor and close friend to the family of Shanann Watts played the tape of the monster loading his pickup truck up with a tank of gasoline.

He then drove away with what appeared to be the bodies of Shanann, 34 and his two daughters — Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3 — on the morning of their disappearance.

When the cold-blooded killer realized that his neighbor had caught him on surveillance video loading his truck, he began to panic.

"I usually park out there on the side, I just want to get everything back in," Watts started explaining.

"It would be easier instead of having to lug everything in," the killer continued. "Loaded my stuff in my coolers – my water jugs, my bookbag, my computers, some of the tools I had from the toolbox – that's why I was out so far."

"What else can I do with this?" Watts asked, with his hands behind his head.

"My detective just showed up, so he'll probably want to talk to you," an Officer Coonrod of the Frederick Police told Watts. "He's next door," the officer continued.

"Want me to go?" Watts replied before leaving to meet the detective.

When the killer left the room, the brave neighbor pointed out that something wasn't right.

"He's not acting right at all," the neighbor told Officer Coonrod, showing him something he found to be "out of the ordinary."

The neighbor noted that he overheard Watts screaming at the "top of his lungs" on several occasions.

"If you look – he never loads stuff in and out of the garage, never." The neighbor said. "The fact that he was in here explaining it to us over and over and over – he doesn't look worried – he looks like he's trying to cover his tracks."

"He's acting so suspicious – he's normally quiet, real subdue – he's over here telling you three times what he took out, what he did, what he did, what he did," the neighbor said, adding: "He never talks, so the fact that he's over here blabbing his mouth makes me kind of suspicious. Why is he so worried about you know what he's carrying out?"

The next day, Watts was arrested and charged for the murder of his family.

Chris was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the brutal murders.
