Elisha Fieldstadt.Frank Rzucek lost his beautiful daughter Shanann Watts, two granddaughters, Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3, and unborn grandson, Niko, when his son-in-law murdered them nearly a year ago. Now he and his family have to contend with cyberbullying, conspiracy-mongering and other online harassment. Unfortunately, people monstrous enough to troll a grieving family are unlikely to repent after such a plea.
Stopping online harassment is no easy task for a variety of reasons. Social media provides new opportunities for sadistic people to victimize people.
Shanann Watts' family says Bella and Celeste were sealed in coffins after murder from the crude oil
A pair of studies found Internet trolls share four common traits; they are sadistic, manipulative, psychopathic and narcissistic.
Social media also amplifies the cruelty of sadists whose malevolence in simpler times would have been limited to a more immediate circle of victims. Online platforms also trigger disinhibition causing people to act with greater intensity and frequency online than in person.
The anonymity, invisibility, and diminished presence of authority bring out the bully in some people who would otherwise act decently. Like the nice guy who becomes a mean drunk, the social media loosens what should remain restrained. Sadly, trolling behavior can have a snowball effect. A recent study found that if an ordinary person is in a bad mood and is exposed to nasty posts, he may join in the fray.
Take away law, order, and shame, add fear, the desire for power, and tribal solidarity, and even choir boys will descend into savagery. Stopping this descent continues to bedevil media companies. In a perfect world, people who troll victims of violence and their families would experience dental work sans anesthesia. In an imperfect world, social media giants are trying to create a platform for free expression without empowering trolls, Russian propaganda and conspiracy-theory mongering.Chris Watts: The Timeline (Part 3)

A bloodied bed sheet is shown in the video, which Shanann was reportedly buried in. The sheet is still covered in the soil from the grave.
The clothing did not match what she was wearing in the final picture of her alive, taken as she boarded a flight home to Colorado, where she was reportedly hoping to work towards fixing her marriage. Shanann was apparently outraged after grandparents Cindy and Ronnie served ice cream with peanuts in it to their children, despite one having a nut allergy. She texted murderous husband Chris: "You should call your dad and tell him you did not appreciate your mom putting your daughter at risk today.
You and your dad are no different if you are ok with her behavior. I just love my kids way too much. The text then goes on to address issues in the relationship, with Shanann saying something changed when she left on her long business trip, and that her husband had failed to acknowledge her pregnancy.
It seems the parents disapproved of the match from the beginning, with Shanann's mother revealing the Watts grandparents did not attend the pair's wedding.
