What a tragic family. Their father has really destroyed this family.

What a messed up family.

If Steven Powell and Josh Powell had told the truth and taken the consequences since the beginning, several people would not be dead today. Alina is still blind to the escapades of the Powell duo. I doubt she will ever open her eyes. This is a very sad end to what could have been a life of great worth, given the truth to deal with. RIP Michael.

Tragic indeed, but can we now avoid any more news stories about this family until another anniversary of Susan's dissappearance rolls around next year.....please?

Out of all the activities that led Josh Powell and his dad down this destructive path, how many are considered "victimless crimes?" Anyone else who considers it a right to addict one's self to so-called pleasure needs to ponder reality and seek help now.

KSL - it's "nephews'deaths" - there wasn't just one. There were two victims, sadly.

Maybe he left a note as to why naming names, dates, and who was involved in Susan's dissappearance and murder. Then again, maybe his concience got the best of him and he realized that he could no longer support Josh's and Daddy's lies and decided that this was the only way out. Too bad. Some shrink ought to write a case study on this whole family.

An extreme case of yet another family destroyed by porn. How very tragic.

Some families, for some reason have more than their share of trajedy, the Kennedys and now the Powells.
