A 911 call made by Shanann’s friend Nicole reproduces the images with the woman saying she was “worried about a friend of mine.”
“I left her at her house at two in the morning last night and I didn’t know they could catch her this morning,” she explains to the 911 office.

“No,” Chris replies.

The show also takes a look at what looked like a perfect, happy family life, with smiling photos of the young family and archival footage of children blowing out candles on birthday cakes.

In another, Shannon tells the camera that she wants to tell them her “story” of how her husband was “the best thing that ever happened to me.”

Later, his voice is heard saying, “I have done everything I can to my heart to improve my family’s life.”
Images of the couple’s wedding day are also played across the entire screen.
However, the program reveals that under the happy image of the surface there were problems.
Chris’s voice is heard saying “my mom never thought she was good enough” while Shanann jokes that she “tortured” and “rejected” her husband.
Moments from the police interview room show Chris being questioned by officers.

“There’s only one person in this room who knows what the truth is,” a detective tells him. “In about five minutes, we’ll be two.”

Chris received five life sentences and was sent to the Dodge Correctional Institution in Waupun, Wisconsin, in November 2018 after confessing to the murders.
After being imprisoned, it turned out that he had had a two-month affair with a co-worker and had planned a new life with her.
He revealed in a confession in prison how he strangled Shanann in about four minutes after he found out about her affair and told her he would never see his children again.
After strangling her, the killer said Bella entered the room and asked what was happening to her mother.
Then Chris dragged Shanann’s lifeless body down the stairs and Celeste also woke up and ran around the house.
He wrapped Shanann in the truck and got his two girls into the vehicle with her mother’s body.
The killer drove the girls to their workplace where he suffocated Celeste with a New York Yankees blanket and threw her body into an oil tank while Bella watched her.
He then killed Bella in the same way and also put his body in the tank.
Chris then buried Shanann and her son to be born in a shallow grave.
Chris feigned concern for his family by saying that his wife must have taken his children and left him.
He later confessed and pleaded guilty to five counts of first-degree murder, one of unlawful termination of pregnancy and three counts of manipulation of a human body killed in November 2018.
