The thirteenth part includes:

  • The fact that Shan’ann was murdered the day before she was due to be paid by Le-Vel.
  • Although Chris Watts had told the cops on Monday he didn’t know their bank details, according to Nickole he knew how to log into Shan’ann’s checking account.

    Seems like there are several books in question. There’s the book she sent Chris, there’s the same book she downloaded and was listening to on the plane, a notebook she was writing notes on – perhaps taking notes from the book she was listening to, and the datebook on the kitchen counter by her purse one of the officers asked “is it a diary?” and Officer Coonrod said it looked like a work book “talking about motivation stuff.” Then there’s the notebook in her nightstand drawer. So I think the green book was the date book she had in her purse as the spiral notebook in her drawer would have been too big to fit in her purse.

    Sounds like this green book could’ve been Shan’ann’s journal. Or a notepad she used to jot down passages and notations from the same book she sent Chris that was found in the trash titled – “Hold Me Tight”.
