Shannan’s body was found in a “fetal position” in a shallow grave, while his two young daughters were found thrown into an oil tank at the oil and gas exploration site where he worked in Frederick, Colorado, United States, reports the Daily Star.
Chris has since been sentenced to five life terms for the twisted murders.
Now fans of the documentary on Facebook believe they have discovered the moment Shanann texted police from beyond the grave about his murder.
The video, which was shared widely, shows the moment Chris asks a neighbor to share his CCTV footage with him and the police the morning after his family went missing.
When the neighbor turns off the video surveillance, a fetus and a skull appear on the screen.
Fans believe Shanann messaged the police about what happened to him.
The clip was posted with the caption: “Chris Watts stood next to the television in his neighbors’ house while the police looked at the CCTV footage …
“While they were chatting with a fetus, a skull floating in oil appeared on the screen.
“His wife Shanann was four months pregnant and he put his two daughters in oil tanks.
“If you believe in the paranormal, has Shanann sent them any clues or a coincidence?”
” Very scary. “
Other Facebook users quickly agreed that this was a post from beyond the grave.
One said, “I’m in shock. Wow. ”
Another replied, “It’s weird and I’ve never noticed it. I’m sure it was a sign! ”
Paranormal investigator Barry Depp, who has led Paranormal Hunters UK for two years, thinks they are right.
The 13-member team has carried out numerous investigations, cleanings and exorcisms in the south of England.
Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, Mr Depp said, “We believe that spirits come and send messages in all kinds of ways, including through television, so it is definitely possible.
“Jane, one of our psychics, sensed someone in the room with them when the fetus and skull appear on the screen.
“As a group, we have spirits in our investigations. The woman had a strong character, so there’s a good chance she might have passed.
