This is the shallow grave where Chris Watts buried his pregnant wife Shanann after strangling her and their two daughters.
DailyMail.com obtained photos of the plot where Watts dumped his wife’s body after killing her and their unborn son.
He dug a hole eight inches in the ground after wrapping her in a sheet from their bed and driving her body and those of daughters Bella and Celeste out to a remote oil field in Colorado.
The coroner in the case previously reported that Shanann was found with the fetus of her son in her underwear when her body was exhumed by investigators, after suffering a prolapsed uterus that was brought on by her gruesome death.

Location: The grave was located approximately 100 yards from the oil tanks where Watts disposed of the bodies of his two daughters (above)
Evidence: Watts would later claim he killed his wife after witnessing her strangle their daughter, an allegation he recanted when he plead guilty to all three murders (Shanann’s grave after she was exhumed)
Video that was previously obtained by DailyMail.com showed a calm and collected Watts grabbing breakfast after disposing of the bodies.
His demeanor in the video belies the fact that he had just dumped the bodies of his daughters Bella, four, and Celeste, three, in an oil tank and buried his pregnant wife Shanann, 34, in a shallow grave in a crude oil field where he worked.
Shanann, who was 15 weeks pregnant, and the girls would all be found two days later after a statewide manhunt. Watts reported them missing and made shifty television appearances pleading for them to come home.
Watts pleaded guilty to murdering his wife and daughters last month after striking a deal with prosecutors that would take the death penalty off the table.
On November 19, Watts was sentenced to five consecutive life sentences for his crimes.
In the days since his sentencing, authorities have been releasing a number of files related to the case, including police station footage of Watts telling his father that he ‘freaked out’ and murdered his wife.
Among the recently released evidence is also chilling surveillance footage which was captured by Watts’ neighbor, showing Watts leaving his suburban Denver home on August 13 at about 5.30am to dispose of the bodies.
He was captured emerging from the home and backing his truck up into the garage before later driving off down the driveway.
DailyMail.com also exclusively revealed that investigators searching through Watts’ mistress Nichol Kessinger’s phone discovered that she had searched for wedding dresses a week before the murders and Googled ‘anal sex’ for 45 minutes prior to her last date with Watts, the night before the murders.

Authorities recently revealed that Watts’ mistress, Nichol Kessinger, had Googled wedding dresses, anal sex and how much money Scott Peterson’s mistress Amber Frey made off her tell-all book deal in the days surrounding the murders
The final Google search conducted by Kessinger that was noted by investigators came after the murders of August 19 when she looked into how much money Amber Frey — mistress of convicted wife-killer Scott Peterson — made in her tell-all book deal and her net worth, while also searching ‘did people hate Amber Frey.’
A search of Watts’ phone, meanwhile, found thousands of hidden photos in a secret calculator app that was only accessed by typing in a four digit code. A number of those pics showed a nude or semi-naked Kessinger.
Authorities also released hours of interview footage in the case, including the moment Watts was told he had failed a polygraph test.
Video of the moment reveals that Watts managed to keep his composure after he was very bluntly told by a member of the Colorado Bureau of Investigations that his answers were not truthful.
That agent then began the process of trying to draw a confession of out of Watts, who after talking for some time eventually shut down the interview and demanded to see his father, Ronnie.
Watts then confessed to killing Shanann to Ronnie, who stayed in the interrogation room as the two agents returned, rubbing his son’s back while he told them he had murdered his wife.
At that time, Watts denied killing daughters Bella and Celeste, a crime he would not admit to until entering his plea deal at the Weld County Courthouse more then two months after the senseless murders.
