    That's what I don't understand either... why did he have to kill his kids? He already looked guilty, even more guilty now. But they are saying that the kids were talking about the night their mom disappeared, so maybe he just didn't want her body discovered?

    This guy is sick and demented.

    Oh, I'm pretty sure he's facing the eternal music now. But maybe not because Josh Powell was sick. I'm not making excuses for him--I mean, whatever his special brand of "disturbed," all he had to do was wait a couple of minutes, max, and then Boom! Instead, he took an axe to his babies' necks.

    That makes him "sick" by definition, at least to me. So he offed his wife and his story was a middle-of-the-night "camping trip" with two little kids in the middle of a blizzard. And one of the kids was getting older and had already verbalized that mommy was in the trunk. So the jig was going to be up.

    Still, his father's in jail for having kiddie porn. That didn't just start a couple of years ago. I doubt we'll ever know what Josh Powell grew up with. But there's a big clue in the kiddie porn and also his father's saying that his daughter-in-law came onto him. Real sickness here, whatever the details are.

    First, though I am using your post, I am not directing this comment AT you, but using the post to make my point.

    Our legal and social service systems are organized to minimize these kinds of events. For those that think government is too big and too intrusive, realize that our legal and social service systems are already understaffed (and overworked) such that they miss many things. If you believe we should cut their budgets further, then you must accept the fact the more crazies will slip through the cracks. Things like law enforcement and social services are usually the first things cut out of local budgets. They just will not be sufficiently resourced to do the job well. If you want to balance the budget, but are unwilling to raise taxes then don't feign outrage when government fails to protect....

    I read about this. I'm so glad he was able to meet is baby girl before he passed, but I'm so terribly sad that this little girl will never truly know her father.

    But to think...how lucky she was to have a Father who loved her. And while she will grow up without him, she will surely know he loved her. Clearly those boys left this world without ever really knowing that love.

    How sad and ironic...

    Steve Powell had kiddie and incest porn on his computer, and it's now known that his son Josh did too. This was the reason the psychologist who had done Powell's eval changed his opinion and recommended a more "intense" eval. I think this is what prompted Powell to kill his little boys and himself--he knew he'd never regain custody.

    From the Washington Post: "Many of the approximately 400 images described in documents released under Washington state public records laws Friday included sexual depictions of popular cartoons, including child-focused characters such as Rugrats, Dennis the Menace and SpongeBob SquarePants. Another 15 images showed 3-D depictions of sex involving parents and their children."

    Josh Powell had some 400 images depicting sex of cartoon characters and graphic incest - The Washington Post
