Whatever is found, let's pray it's the truth, and that it comes out soon and puts this case to rest.

Somethins' happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear................

Some journalist needs to interview the people that Susan Powell worked with. They would be very good at discounting the slander against Susan Powell from her father-in-law about being flirtatious. They would have been the only people around Susan more than Josh and they would have certainly seen if she was flirtatious. I'm willing to bet her co-workers would disclose that she was neither flirtatious nor giving any indication of arranging meetings with another man but that Susan only wanted to get away from Josh Powell who was allegedly controlling and even allegedly abusive.

Well Steve and Josh, you wanted others to read her childhood diaries, you are getting just what you wanted. Happy now? Your deflection may just come right back to bite you in a way you never imagined. It will be very interesting to see what comes of all of this in the future.

Steve is also accussed of asking Susan to join him in a three way with Josh?....but Josh says he was not aware of his fathers indiscretions.......So which is it? Do these two not live in the same house? How is it that Steve can make such an outlandish claim and yet Josh says he knows nothing!

Methinks Josh says he doesn't know alot of things about things he knows perfectly well about!

Any father-in-law who would go on national TV and say the things this man has said, is sick. Any parent who would raise children in this household is also sick. Susan's children need some advocate somewhere! I hope this awful situation comes to a conclusion soon, and these children can be placed in a healthy environment.

As I recollect the past 2 years of the missing mother, Susan Cox Powell, I can't remember anything about Steven Powell's wife, Josh Powell's mother and the Grandmother to the two children that Josh Powell has in his custody? Is she missing also?

Kissimmee, FL


I have been wondering about her also. I would be interested to hear what she has to say about all of this.

That's a good question JWB. I didn't think of that. It is sad that Josh has his children living in a home where his Father makes these statements about the Mother of his children. If I was him I would get the children as far away as possible. This is disgusting. Where was Steven Powell when Susan went missing?

jwb....thanks for the laugh....

The Father-in-Law creeps me out! What kind of creepy guy reads his Daughter-in-Law's journals anyway? Ewww.

I believe they were divorced some time ago, but it seems like Teri Powell would come forward to clear up some of these questions, since she would actually stay at Steve's house when she visited the kids.

Steven Powell is creepy but I enjoyed the Buffalo Springfield references from some of the posters.

Chuck Cox and his wife are living every parent's worst nightmare, and then some! To have their daughter VANISH, and then have the Powells purposefully slandering them in a nationwide media and internet campaign....it has to hurt them to the very core. I'm truly sorry Mr. Cox. Although it hurts to hear them broadcast lies about your daughter, you need to sit back and allow it, and almost be grateful for it. Because the public can SEE THROUGH the vicious lies, AND, as they say, you need to allow the fool to hang himself. Keep S & J Powell talking, it's like giving the fool enough rope. Eventually, they'll hang themselves.

Steven Powell's version of events sounds more like Meat Loaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light"

Ok - now I'm convinced father-in-law got rid of her. He's kind of a nut. Maybe him; maybe Josh; probably both. Poor Susan.
