Man Claims He's Spotted A Ghost In 'American Murder' Bodycam Footage

Man Claims He's Spotted A Ghost In 'American Murder' Bodycam Footage

A man has claimed to have spotted the ghost of a little girl in bodycam footage presented in Netflix's documentary American Murder: The Family Next Door.

The chilling doc explores the case of Colorado father Chris Watts, who murdered his pregnant wife, Shanann, by strangulation, before smothering his two young daughters Bella and Celeste, in 2018.

Now YouTuber Arthur Cant has uploaded police footage from the programme, convinced that he has spotted the ghostly figure of a young girl in the background.

Titling the video 'Ghost of Daughter', Arthur writes in the clip description: "In this clip you can see in the left corner you can clearly see a little girl."

He later commented: "You can start seeing stuff around the 0:33 mark."

The clip shows Chris at home with police officers along with Shanann's friend Nickole Atkinson and her son, who were the first to report the mum-of-two missing.

The group are discussing Shanann's phone, which has been discovered turned off inside the family home, but one policeman's bodycam catches a child playing in a bedroom to the left of shot.

"Is it a ghost??" asked a commentator.

"Wtf legit looks like a kid," wrote another.

Others believed they saw additional spooky happenings in the clip.

"What about the light going off in the room across from Chris by itself," commented a third YouTuber.

But while some respondents bought into Arthur's 'ghost' theory, others remarked that the girl in the footage was in fact Nickole's daughter.

"Isn't that the (very living) daughter of the neighbor woman talking with the cop," said one.

Another chimed in: "It is Nicole's [sic] daughter. Her partner is seen holding her in the police cam footage as Chris walks into the garage."

"Those are not ghosts. His daughters didn't have long hair like the "ghost" in the video," commented a third.

While Arthur is fully entitled to his own theory, we think it's far more likely that the girl in the clip is, in reality, the daughter of Nickole.

American Murder: The Family Next Door gives a voice to Chris' victim through a combination of social media posts, video footage and phone recordings.

In 2018, Shanann and her two young daughters, Celeste, three, and Bella, four, went missing in Frederick, Colorado.

As the search for the 34-year-old and her kids went on, Shanann's husband, Chris Watts, became the prime suspect.

With the investigation playing out in the public eye, Chris pushed the narrative that he was a bereft father and husband, doing camera appeals to plead for his family's safe return.

In reality, Watts was the murderer. After failing a lie detector test, he confessed that he had murdered his whole family before concealing his daughter's bodies in an oil tank and burying his wife's body in a shallow grave near the oil work site.

Chris received three consecutive life sentences and is not eligible for parole.
