We were all pretty sure this scumbag was guilty...but there wasn't any proof.

I read this last night while the Super Bowl was on.

He was truly evil...makes me wonder about his father, who's obviously a perv. And yes, at times like this, I hope there is a hell...because I'd hope he'd be roasting there for an eternity while being continually forced to stare at pictures of the wife & two precious sons that he murdered in cold blood.

My heart not only goes out to the families, but also to the poor social worker - I can't even

I saw the interview with the brother in law last night. Where he said Josh wasn't a loving dad, that he consider them his property. Everyone seems to be blame DSHS, but it was the judge who ordered the home visit not DHSH.

As a side note, the area where both families live was on my bus route for 5 yrs.

I heard that the Cox's (maternal grandparents) are going to spearhead legislation that requires all supervised visits to be at a neutral site.

And the judge was just following the guidelines. I heard that the Cox's are going to be working to change it so that all supervised visits are at a neutral site.

And yes, Josh Powell most likely thought of not only his children but also his wife as his 'possessions'.

After what we have learn about Steve Powell, is there any reason his son turned out to be a murder? Yes I'm sure that he consider his wife his posswssion, I'm not going to be surprised that we find out he was abusive as well.. There was something slime about him when I saw him on tv. I've just had a gut feeling about him for awhile.

Last night when I read the ME report, I started crying. How could he be so crewl to those boys & Susan (Ilve heard he hated her parents)

Y'know I was just thinking, if they find Susan Cox body, that she was hacked up.

I agree; those kids were just belongings to him.; chances are, he felt the same about his wife.

The authorities
