    I'm glad they caught him. I didn't believe a word he said when he said that Susan used to "come on to him."

    I hope they give it to him really good, and I hope that miserable son of his gets what's coming to him. He killed Susan.

    Fourteen counts, class C Felonies.

    I don't think he'll be on probation anytime in the near future.

    They removed his grandsons from his home at the time of his arrest. Susan's parents are seeking custody. I hope they get it.
    Wanna see my grandkids?

    He had a lot of nerve trash talking Susan when he was engaged in such disgusting activities. If he hadn't have been running his mouth, he never would have been looked at closer, the stupid ass.

    He and his smarmy son have two matching pairs. The ones in their pants and the ones between their shoulders.

    This was one of the articles that I read and first my jaw dropped and then when it sunk it, I wasn't surprised at all.

    Just like his son claims he took the boys camping in the middle of the night in the middle of winter in the middle of nowhere, what do you bet Powell Senior claims he was doing "research" or some such nonsense?

    I wonder if he might cut a deal to try and save himself and tell the police what he knows about the real story with his son and his daughter-in-law is? (That is, if he wasn't involved in what happened to her.)

    Hey, this arrest does bring up a good point. If she was screwing around with another guy and ran off with him, wouldn't he have a few photos of her with the other man? It seems he took lots of pics and I don't think this pervert would have missed a chance to photograph that activity.

    Hubby was crying today because the "general public" hasn't been out looking for his wife. Perhaps the general public first can't get pass his crazy story that he took his two small children camping late at night in freezing temperatures. Do we then need to mention next that he claimed his wife ran off with another man. He could save lots of time, money and grief if he just said where her body is. (Yes, you can say I have an opinion about this guy.)

    Also, it came out in court that they are looking at any involvement he might have with his pervert father's sick video and photography hobby.

    Why doesn't he get off his ass and go look for his own wife if he is so concerned about her? Oh, I know, it is because she is dead and he knows exactly where she is so no need to look. I just love how some people like to piss and moan that the public isn't searching hard enough for their missing loved one while they themselves are doing nothing. Who in the hell does he think he is, Cindy Anthony?

    Susan Cox-Powell's parents got temporary custody of her sons. A judge will decide sometime this week as to who gets permanent custody.

    I saw on t.v. that he had his brother living with him and his sons and that the brother is schizophrenic and has answered the door naked. The sister has said she thinks her brother did it and said both her brother and father were not to be trusted. Last I heard child protection services removed the two young boys from the house and Susan's parents have them now.

    Reading that is like being punched in the face! Hadn't he caused enough misery in his lifetime? Those poor, sweet little innocent boys and Susan's poor family! I just can't imagine. I'm glad Josh Powell is dead and I hope he suffered terribly before he died. He knew it was only a matter of time before they nailed his ass for Susan's murder. I'm just in shock right now.

    You and me both!

    According to various reports, there was a hearing on Wednesday at which Susan's parents retained custody of the kids with Josh having supervised visitation and he was ordered to undergo psycho-sexual evals.

    Josh reportedly emailed his attorney shortly before the explosion saying, "I'm sorry. Goodbye." The attorney did not see the message until a couple of hours later - after he heard about the incident.

    Neighbors report hearing 3 separate explosions. Fire officials suspect that accelerants were also used.

    This just boggles my mind! I feel so badly for Susan's parents.

    He sure didn't want the Cox's to think they had "won" by retaining custody of Susan's boys, huh? They know he killed Susan and then tried to trash her reputation on interviews every chance he got, even while living with the boys at the home of his perverted, child porn loving dad. I guess this was the only way Josh could figure out to beat the Coxs and he sure wasn't going to sit back and see them with Susan's boys. I can't imagine the horror they are going through right now. Josh made sure he had control and the last word right to the bitter end, the selfish coward. I doubt if Susan's remains will ever be found now. It is just unbelievably horrible.

    Susan was planning on leaving him and taking the kids. She wound up missing and presumably murdered.

    The Cox family gets custody of the kids. He kills them.

    He made damned sure that nobody else ended up with the kids.

    I just read this on People's site and I am totally in shock. I always thought he killed her. Why did he have to kill those poor boys. My thoughts and prayers are with the Cox family. First, their daughter and now their grandsons. I can't believe this SOB did this.

    The way he killed them is the worst way possible, too. What could be more painful than burning to death? They had just arrived at his home with the CPS worker for supervised visitation so there is no way he could have done anything else to them before the fire burned them to death. The neighbors said there were three separate explosions, the first big blast and then two more after the house was engulfed in flames. This was his last "fuck you" to her parents and he made sure to do it big. I hope the boys are with their mom and Josh is still smoldering in hell!

    Considering the fact that the kids had been with the Cox family since the fall, and he was just told that he couldn't get custody of them until he submitted to psycho-sexual evals, I'm wondering how much of this was because of custody and how much was related to having to take those evals.

    Either way, two innocent babies are dead, the Cox family is once again devastated, Susan will likely never be found, and that bastard managed to evade the consequences of any of his actions. My only consolation is that I'm sure he's burning in hell right now!

    Danny, I agree with you 100%! The first time I ever heard that lame brained story of him taking two toddlers camping in freezing weather and his wife being gone when they got back, I thought he was a total dumbass and would be arrested very quickly. My guess is that the police pretty much know he killed Susan, but they haven't found her body and don't have enough proof of Josh's guilt. She will likely never be found now. I think her family feared all along that he might harm the children to keep them from getting custody. I don't understand why supervised visitation was allowed at his home. It should have been done at a neutral facility. Josh obviously was dangerous and the social workers who brought the boys to visits could have been delivering those boys and themselves into any situation such as the fire or a shooting or stabbing. I'm actually surprised the CPS worker wasn't killed, too.

    That is a great point. Why was the visitation at his home? Being a Fostor Mother, the son said he had been abused, he was lying....they did their visitation at the DHS office. Being watched by someone who would not let them talk about anything except for what happened for the day. This went on for 2 years, visitations at the office, never at the home. My neighbor across the street fosters to just babies has never had any of the mothers come to her house, same as my child, we always take them to the office. Especially if they thought this guy was a killer. Utah is tough on killers, I'm sure they were missing some piece as they would have loved to arrested him. When everyone in the country thinks your guilty that's alot to handle, but those poor kids had family, there was no reason for him to do this.

    I am not sure if they had idiots handling the case or what?? I don't think she will ever be found either. Yeah he didn't seem like the most brilliant criminal.

    To me he just came off as a control freak and everything had to be about him. He sure put Susan's family through hell after Susan disappeared and obviously continues to do so. He was more interested in one upping the Cox family than he was in the well being and happiness of his little boys. There is no telling what kind of things he filled their heads with about their mom after she disappeared.

    I was really shocked to hear the supervised visits were allowed to occur at Josh's home. They had to know the guy was unstable just from past history. There was a CPS worker killed in Indiana a few years ago when she took a baby for a supervised visit to his mom's house. The mom and her boyfriend attacked this woman and beat and stabbed her to death. They stole her car and went on the run with the baby afterwards. The baby was found safe a few days later and the mom and boyfriend are in prison. It is dangerous sending one person into domestic and custody situations and I think it should be required to be at a safe facility. I see a big lawsuit over the deaths of the little Powell boys.

    The more I think about it the more pissed off I get. Knowing what the kids and parents have to go through for visits, as my Mom says, Your state is nuts....yes it is, but they wouldn't have taken the boys and left them at the house....if they took them to the Dad's house they would have stayed, that's the point of supervised visitation. I do have alot of issues with our DHS, but I know they try to do the best they can and some slip through the cracks, but, knowing also my foster son had 7 different case workers in 6 months there is alot of stupid stuff to....the number one issue is protecting those kids. And here, they actually take custody even if they have visits. He shouldnt' have had custody or free visitations. The Fostor Mother in me is horrified. I know what I'm going to be discussing with my case worker this week.

    I have been reading different articles all over the internet since I found out about this. One article said that this wasn't a state CPS worker but was a worker for an agency that had a contract with the state to conduct the supervised visits. When she pulled into the driveway with the boys for their visit, they hopped out of the car and ran ahead of her and Josh shut the door and locked it before she could get inside. She called her supervisor to let him know that he had locked himself into the house with the boys inside and she started smelling gas very strongly and then the house exploded. I am actually surprised that he didn't kill the worker, too. Any guy who didn't mind killing his wife and two sons isn't going to care about a person supervising their visits. It is ridiculous to me that any visits would take place in anyone's home. That's just asking for trouble and just a matter of time before something horrible like this happened. Anyone who has followed this case with the many twists and turns knows he was unstable and a control freak. His own sister knew how he was and wanted the boys to remain in the custody of Susan's parents because she knew they were safe with them. This should have never happened.

    The father-in-law is a major scuzzball. He gives me the dry heaves and makes my skin crawl. It's a shame he wasn't in the house instead of the boys.

    I am just stunned by this. I have a faint hope that a letter or something from the father will at least turn up in the next day or two that states where the mother's body is. I also believe that the father's father knows more about all of this.

    I don't think he would tell where Susan's body is. I think he hated the Coxs more than he loved his boys and it gave him satisfaction to know he would be taking any information about Susan to the grave with him. I think he did this out of spite and revenge toward the Coxs because they had custody of the boys and he finally decided if he couldn't have them then nobody would. JMO

    Just read about this on the CNN site. It reported that the social worker tried to bang on the door and windows of the house, then went to her car to call the supervisor. She is lucky that she was not killed also. I am just to stunned to respond coherently. I never saw this coming.
