No one will buy the Watts murder house featured in Netflix's 'American Murder: The Family Next Door

The upscale Colorado home where Chris Watts murdered his wife and children in 2018 has been on the market since the horrific murders and appears to stand empty forever.
Watts strangled his pregnant wife Shanann on August 13, 2018 and hid her body at a construction site. Then he suffocated his two daughters Bella (4) and Celeste (3).
The next day, Watts appeared on TV and asked his wife and children to return home. However, he later failed a polygraph test and eventually confessed his crimes to the police.
He eventually pleaded guilty to the murders and was sentenced to life in prison.
The Watts home - the site of the murders - has eight bedrooms and is valued at $ 645,000. Despite its value, the house was vacant and had no potential buyers since 2018.
Following the murders, Watts defaulted on his mortgage and his lender was excluded for the house.
The house was auctioned off but received no bids, likely due to its gruesome history.
The lender kept the house on the market for a full year, but no one bid.
Last year the house was removed from foreclosure and taken off the market. In essence, Watts still owns the house, but because he will be in jail for the rest of his life, it will likely stand empty forever.
If Watts can ever sell the house, the money will likely go towards a $ 6 million unjustified death settlement he struck with his wife's family.
Interest in the Watts murders has picked up again thanks to a Netflix documentary, American Murder: The Family Next Door, which focuses on the murders.
Watts killed his wife after admitting to her that he cheated on her with a colleague. He asked for a divorce. She allegedly told him that he would never see his daughters again, which apparently started the murder. He later suffocated his daughters in his car.
The girls 'bodies were found in oil tanks at Watts' construction site, and Shanann's body was found buried in a shallow grave nearby.
