The death of Susan and Josh Powell's two young sons, Charlie and Braden Powell, at the hands of Josh Powell on Feb. 5 reverberated throughout the year, even as Susan Powell remains missing and presumed dead, and the grandfather of the children languishes in prison on voyeurism-related charges. The story galvanized residents of two states and called into question the work of West Valley police, and it brought into stark focus how the failings of two fathers destroyed a family and harmed others with whom they came in contact.
