Netflix is bringing home to us a whole lot of documentaries in 2020. Directed by Jenny Popplewell and produced by Oscar-winning James Marsh, American Murder: The Family Next Door is an upcoming Netflix American true-crime documentary film. The documentary revolves around a man who murdered his pregnant wife and two children in 2018 in Frederick, Colorado. It is indeed a horrifying story that we are about to see.

Release Date and Trailer of American Murder:

The gripping documentary American Murder is all set to premiere on Netflix on September 30, 2020. Most of us love watching crime documentaries especially when it brings us original and raw footages from the actual event. The trailer of the film looks promising and chilling, footage from their wedding is also featuring in the trailer and they did look like a happy family.

The trailer description goes like “Using raw, firsthand footage, this documentary examines the disappearance of Shanann Watts and her children and the terrible events that followed.” Take a look at the trailer below:

What is it about?

The official synopsis of American Murder: The Family Next Door on Netflix goes like “As details of their deaths made headlines worldwide, it became clear that Shanann’s husband, Chris Watts, wasn’t the man he appeared to be. Experience a gripping and immersive examination of the disintegration of a marriage,”  

After the disappearance of Shanann Watts and her daughters Bella and Celeste, there were investigations carried on. On Aug. 13, 2018, Shannon who was pregnant missed her appointment with the gynecologist and did not show up for work as well. Her workplace friend Nickole Atkinson visited the Watts home in Frederick, Colorado, and couldn’t find the lady and her kids. She reported them missing to a local police station. The husband initially acted innocent and denied being involved in the disappearance. However, later on, he confessed murdering his wife and two daughters and hiding their bodies at the oil storage facility where he worked. Chris also admitted that he had an affair with his co-worker Nichol Kessinger.

Shanann’s body was found by the investigators in a shallow pit in the oil and gas storage property. The bodies of Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, were also found in oil tanks. In November 2018, Watts was sentenced to five consecutive life sentences, in addition to “48 years for criminal termination of pregnancy for the death of the unborn child, and 12 years each for three counts of tampering with a deceased body. “(Source-4CBS Denver).

Masters's in English Language and Literature, I love creating content. You would often find me sitting in front of my laptop and binge-watching a series. Also, I have a knack towards photography.
