On the night of August 14, CBI agent Greg Zentner was dispatched to Boulder to interview the most crucial witness in the Watts case. The transcript below is an excerpt from a 72 page document spanning 3223 lines of text.
CrimeRocket is the first to reproduce and analyze this critical transcript in-depth. The entire transcript has been broken down into 15 sections.
The fifth part includes:
- The fact that it was Watts job to do the laundry [all the laundry].
- The obvious assessment that Watts couldn’t strip the bed if Shan’ann was still asleep in it [and Shan’ann would never have thrown the sheets on the floor].
- Nickole’s response to Watts announcing that he’d “found” Shan’ann’s wedding ring.
- The unusual circumstances around the discovery of the phone.
The audio for the above transcript is available here.

At 34:35 in the clip below, Watts heads into the master bedroom and comes out holding Shan’ann’s ring.
