According to a recording on the jail's phone, Chris Watts has been charged with three counts of murder in the first degree and three counts of tampering with physical evidence. "At this point we have been able to recover a body that we're quite certain is Shanann Watts' body," Colorado Bureau of Investigation Director John Camper said Thursday at a news conference. "We have strong reason to believe that we know where the bodies of the children are and recovery efforts are in process on that." In answer to a reporter's question, Camper confirmed the body was found on Anadarko Petroleum Corporation property. Chris Watts is a former employee of the company, said Andarko spokesperson Jennifer Brice. She declined to say when he left the company. Authorities didn't reveal a possible motive or other details in the case. A judge sealed the arrest affidavit, which might have provided that information. Information on Watts' attorney was not immediately available.
