On Sunday, just hours after the deaths of Charlie and Braden Powell and their father, several news media outlets were reporting that one of the children had made a drawing depicting a family outing that indicated their mother, Susan Cox Powell, was in the trunk of a vehicle.
She disappeared in 2009 while the family lived in West Valley City, Utah. She has never been found, and police in Utah named Josh Powell as a “person of interest” in the case.
The boys’ grandfather, Chuck Cox, has said Braden, the younger of the two Powell children, had drawn a picture the summer after his mother’s disappearance. The drawing showed three people in a vehicle.
Asked where his mother was, he replied, “Mommy is in the trunk,” Chuck Cox said Monday. He said Braden said the vehicle stopped somewhere and that his mother got out and never came back, Cox said.

the grandfather was in love with this man's wife, wrote a sick twisted haunting song about it, (it may be on youtube) and the son may have gotten jealous: (no reason given)
"The four ladies that were supervising that activity said, 'well, what's this?' 'That's us going camping.' 'Who's in the car?' And Braden said, 'that's Daddy, that's Charlie, that's me'. Then he said, 'well mommy's in the trunk.' Well if Mommy's in the trunk, why is she in the trunk?' He didn't know, he didn't say, I guess. Then, he said we stopped somewhere and mommy and daddy got out and mommy didn't come back."
he was a suspect, never charged with the murder, wife is still considered missing

Yikes, I hadn't heard about the axe bit...that's just even more tragic.
What happened to the drawing? Braden gave it to his father, Judy Cox said. West Valley City police spokesman Sgt. Mike Powell declined to say Tuesday whether detectives had heard about or seen the drawing. “I am not able to discuss anything pertinent to the investigation,” said Powell, who is not related to Josh Powell. “We want to maintain the integrity of the investigation.”
