Frank Rzucek Sr.
Frank Rzucek Sr. is the devastated father of late Shanann Watts –the pregnant woman killed along with her two young daughters by her husband in Colorado.
The case quickly made headlines after it was reported Shanann’s husband Chris Watts, also killed the couple’s children and put their bodies in oil tanks. Shanann who was pregnant with the couple’s third child, a son –went missing last Wednesday after she returned from a work trip.
Husband, Chris even issued a televised plea for her safe return home a day before he was arrested on suspicious of killing her.
Her remains and those of her daughters: 3-year-old Celeste and 4-year-old Bella –were found last Thursday on property belonging to Chris’ former employer –which happens to be an oil and gas driller.
According to reports, the girls’ bodies had been concealed “inside oil tanks,” while Shanann had been buried in a shallow grave, according to an arrest affidavit.
Chris is charged with three counts of first-degree murder with deliberation, two counts of first-degree murder of a child under the age of 12 by someone who is in a “position of trust” over them, one first-degree count of unlawful termination of pregnancy, and three counts of tampering with a deceased body.
The killer husband initially admitted to authorities he killed his wife but only after, he claimed, he “went into a rage” when she strangled their daughters and he saw it on the baby monitor. He also said the couple argued because he told her he wanted a divorce.
Chris who was having an affair with a co-worker allegedly asked her to separate and then proceeded to kill Shanann and their daughters.
