I am so sick over this.

He has now killed himself and murdered his own children.

I guess this pretty much confirms he also killed his wife.

A social worker dropping off the kids for a supervised visit was held back and locked out of the house. She smelled gas and went to call her supervisor and then the house exploded.

What a sad day.

Just heard about this..
Can you believe this guy
still was able to have
the kids. I mean he should
of never have had visiting rights
while he was under investigation.
They should of had this nutjob in
jail..

Hell I guess these guys are to busy
pulling over old ladies
and us for speeding then actually
watching and checking out a murderer.

I mean this guy was not already under surveillance?

WTF PEOPLE!!

Poor kid's man, terrible story..

YES, CONFIRMED he did something to the wife.

I am following this on Twitter, it is horrible so sad
Susan, her parents and her boys are in my thoughts and prayers. It is almost like a movie, I can't imagine the pain they are going through right now. The social worker must be really bad off right now, he grabbed the kids locked her out and when she went to make a phone call the house blew up ....

How does this confirm he killed his wife?

He could have been sick of not having custody of his kids, and decided they were all going to meet in the afterlife....or whatever.

I'm not saying he didn't murder his wife. But saying this situation proves he killed his wife is just stupid.

I live 5 min away from the crime scene btw.....

What can one say?

Sad


Messed up parents and the innocent children are the ones that pay.

Keep in mind while the father was evidently crazy, mean, off his rocker. After watching my ex daughter in law and all the stuff she pulled trying to alienate my grand daughter from my son and our whole family - maybe the man was driven nuts by her.

Again, I am in no way condoning this behavior. It is deplorable but unless you have ever been involved in a really hateful, vindictive divorce where the woman stalks the man, beats up on him, doesn't obey joint custody rulings, calls the ex's boss and gets him fired, and all other kinds of games particularly woman like to play.................you might not know the full story.

A horrible, sad news story......................but again keep in mind, yes the guy was nuts but possibly the ex wife drove him there.

There are always two sides to every story and we are only seeing one side.

Again, unstable people, having children before they make sure their marriage will work out is stupid and now with the divorce rate 50% that means that 50% of the folks in America are not taking enough time and energy to ensure they make a good choice for a marriage partner.

I've been married 39 years but lived with my husband for one year, married and waited another three years before having children to ensure we had enough money to have babies and to mainly make sure we would not get divorce.

You young people out there need to really start "courting" getting to know the other person and before you bring a innocent child into the world, make darn sure he/she is going to have a stable life with a full family - ie: both sets of parents and grandparents.

He might have had custody that one day or 48 hours after months (we once went six months and $12,000 to make our son's ex wife comply with joint custody).

Not saying the guy wasn't a nut job and those poor, innocent children................but many women are very brutal and play a lot of games with their ex's - to the point of driving them crazy. So many women use their child(ren) as pawns in their getting even game.

Our society likes to think because Hollywood paints men as the brutes.

Well it use to be that way but now I've seen a lot of younger women that could put many men to shame in the brutality department, only they do it sneaky like a cat.

You don't know the full story.

Would be interesting to hear the paternal grand parent's.

And yes probably the guy was just four cans short of a six pack, but my son went through hell and back and it cost us over all $28,000 to make our son's ex stop stalking, beating up on him and calling his fiance and workplace.

The law.......................a big fracking joke, women get special treatment and are allowed a lot more liberties than men at least in our case.

I'm fine with the idiot killing himself, but i hope he rots in eternal damnation for killing his children There is absolutely no reason for that had a guy I worked with 20 years ago do something similar, but only kiiled himself, yeah he really showed them. SAD

This could be the reason why...


A psychologist who recently evaluated Josh Powell as part of the custody case has recommended the psychosexual evaluation because of the images found at the West Valley City home, which a prosecutor declined to comment on other than saying the images are “not something you would soon forget.” Josh Powell’s attorney, Jeff Bassett, has questioned the necessity of the evaluation and said his client denies looking at “kiddie porn.” On Friday, Bassett told The Salt Lake Tribune psycho-sexual evaluations are controversial because of how they are conducted.

Police have found child porn on his father Steve Powell's computer as well....I think he planned this because he was about to be exposed. Quite possibly his wife found out and threatened to report him, so he killed her.

What if this was some other guy with a better lawyer and perhaps a PR team. We would have been upset if he didn't have access to his children. We so often forget that we are fed our news and depending on who is holding the spoon changes the flavor. There was plenty of evidence suggesting that Josh should not have had contact with his children but don't forget there are plenty of other parents out there that 'should' have their children but do not. It sucks but we can't allow ourselves to be lead like sheep just because things don't work out sometimes. Keep an eye on the big picture.

This was a very troubled and sick family....and those children could have been abused since the grandfather is in jail for child porn on his computer as well as pics he took of a woman without her knowledge....I do remember the grandfather saying he lusted after Susan and wanted a relationship with her....HIS SON'S wife. Since they confiscated child porn and "bizarre" sexual images in the house that Josh lived in with his father....I don't understand why he had rights to see those kids. I'll bet that they were abused....and he was about to be found out. Here's the story.

Just heard that Josh Powell sent out an email just before this saying "I'm sorry Goodbye" don't know if there is more or not....this has my stomach in knots....those poor babies.

Jeffrey Bassett, who represented Josh Powell in the custody case, said he received a three-word email from his client just minutes before Powell and his two boys died in a house explosion. It said, "I’m sorry, goodbye."


www.sltrib.com...

Police said that Josh was "upset" that he had to take a psychosexual test. It involves showing pornography of different types to men and measuring their "arousal" There was something he didn't want known.
