I have to agree with you photographermom........ Doesnt suprise me either.

I do feel sorry for those two young boys in the home though.......

Farmington, UT

So who are you going to believe now....Susan's supposed claim that this guy is a "creep" or his version of her that she was a "flirt?"

His behavior didn't pass the smell test; not even close.

West Jordan, UT

Sick, sick, sick.

Time to get those boys out of that house.

Salt Lake, UT

From a Deseret News article published Saturday, Aug. 27, 2011 in regards to the search warrant that took place at his home:

"In addition to his daughter-in-law's journals, Steven Powell said potentially "embarrassing" pictures, videos and journals belonging to him were also seized by police."

Embarrassing indeed, Mr. Powell.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Well, there goes his music career.

Provo, UT

Shudder. Those poor children and their mother. And now Susan's parents have to witness not only their daughter's name dragged through the mud, but know just what type of man has unfettered access to their grandchildren. I very much hope that creep is kept far away from those two boys.

Why do I feel like I am watching reality TV? Anyone around (without a restraining order) who can help the little ones that have been living amidst this dangerous drama for the last two years? At least there is one less shady character for them to deal with, how many more to go? Keep up the good work, police force!

Denton, TX

Who'd a thunk it...ewww.

Summit, UT

Now I know what it means When people say I just threw up a little in my mouth

Quiet Neighborhood, UT

I wonder why Steven Powell would stick around when he knew these videos were taken from his home. Many people would disappear.

Those poor children, I hope they get the proper care their gonna need. I think this just sheds more light onto the type of family josh was raised by, and what he is capable of.... The apple usually doesnt fall far from the tree. I agree with the above post about this being leverage, if josh's dad knows anything they'll be able to interogate it out of him.

Phoenix, AZ

It's about time!

Cache, UT

Now who is going to protect and provide for Josh?
Get those two boys out of that house.

Kissimmee, FL

This is good news, not surprising though. A note to the Washington State authorities, it's time to get Susan's sons out of that house. Now that you know what kind of a warped environment they have been living in, you should have no problem taking them away from their Father and putting them in a safe place. Step up and do the right thing for these boys.

Where's Momo?

So Steven Powell was having some sort of relationship with his daughter in law. Josh Powell lives with his father despite this knowledge. I guess Josh is ok with his father having a thing for his wife? Now that is creepy. If my father had done that I wouldn't have anything to do with him. The Powell family just keeps getting more bizarre if that is possible.

New Harmony, Ut

Hmmmm. Another "Person of interest."(?)
This opens up some possibilities.

Kaysville, UT

The professionalism of all the inner workings and coordination of the West Valley City police, the Juab Sheriff Department, the Puyallup Police Department, the Pierce County Sheriff Department, Medical and Forensic personnel, so far is working great. Thanks to the judges and warrant process as those professionals do a good job to ensure this case keeps moving forward. We have rights as citizens but it appears those two boys need to have protection from their environment and the Washington DCFS equivalent will hopefully do the right thing for those boys as they have suffered a lot over the past at least 2 years.

Thanks to all who are praying for this case to resolve.

And the acorn doesn't fall too far from the tree.

I am amazed at the arrogance (stupidity?) of going to the national news media and calling into question Susans' character while having such a dirty little secret stored on your own computer. Guess he wanted 15 more minutes of fame.
