Chris Watts parents (Cindy and Ronnie Watts) tried to collect the cash that just exists in the very first place because their kid murdered his whole household.
Pretty screwed up that parents can benefit off of their kidss crimes, particularly if it turns out they give that money back to Chris by funding his prison commissary. This is supposed to be the precise thing that the Slayer Rule and Son of Sam laws are in location to prevent.
Chris Watts has actually rightfully left the cash untouched in Shananns estate. Both Shananns parents and Chris moms and dads then went to court to combat for the money. In the end the money was provided to attorneys to distribute, but where it went is not a matter of public record and neither family has commented.
Chris Watts had a $450k life insurance policy through his company that would pay in the occasion of an untimely death. The sum consists of $300,000 for Shanann and $75,000 for each of the ladies. No mention was made from Shananns coming kid.
Normally, life insurance policies will not be paid for suicide or if one spouse murders the other. Any fan of Forensic Files understand the lengths some individuals will go to get away with murder in order to collect insurance coverage money. Its not something that just occurs in made for TELEVISION movies, and some individuals even think the Watts household murders were part of a bigger insurance scheme so that Chris Watts and Nichol Kessinger might gather a swelling sum and start a brand-new life together.
