    The Family Powell mantra is sounding like the politicians in Washington, D.C. "Lie, Deny, Demand proof...". Their "theory" is rancid at best.

    The only reasons Josh and Stephen Powell have to present this theory is to take the suspicion away from themselves. Susan would not voluntarily leave her life and her family. No doubt she thought of leaving Josh, but that is a far cry from leaving her children, parents, siblings, extended family and LDS Church friends... which was her support base.

    No body, not suspects, means no murder has happened.

    Let's be blunt. There is the same amount of FACTS supporting the claim that Susan Powell was killed by her husband as there is that Susan Powell ran off with Steven Koecher -- NONE. Both are theories and speculation.

    As to Josh Powell's "non-cooperation" with law enforcement -- that one's easy to understand. He fully gave them his account of what happened the night Susan Powell disappeared and then law enforcement started gunning for him. Powell's attorney told him to say nothing more and, wonder of wonders, Powell took his attorney's advice (something that more clients should do).

    The one thing that just shouts out is that Powell says if you find one person, you will find the other. This is an admission that there is a connection of these two cases. Did Koecher disappear while Powell was driving all over the country avoiding answering questions?

    There's always some truths in the lies. Look under the surface.

    Well, the "parallel work histories" certainly makes this new theory clear:

    Obviously, Susan leaves her beloved children to run away with a man who has trouble keeping steady employment.

    That's not a theory, its Josh Powell trying to further complicate things and draw suspicion away from him.

    DNEWS... Quit feeding the fire!!!!

    Joshua's la-la Land explanation only makes him look more guilty, if that's possible. He appears delusional and desperate. What he really needs to explain is his lack of cooperation with law enforcement!

    Even if all the connections are real and that is what really happened (which is probably unlikely), none of it excuses or explains the actions of husband Josh for refusing to work with the investigators and for not disclosing details about his "camping trip." If he had nothing to hide, why would he not tell exactly where he went? Or why he went on such a cold Sunday night with work the next day?

    Until he brings forth all his information, he has no credibility whatsoever. It sounds like he is trying to take advantage of another missing person and pass the blame to another party.

    Makes possible sense to me? She's gone, He's Gone, nobody knows WHERE??? Is there another possibility??? It's a strong possibility, just as strong as the "Husband Murder" Theory, which I don't believe at all.

    Wow, those are quite the stretches for "parallels." I didn't see a whole lot of parallels except what they assume each one was doing.

    I am shocked that a legitimate journalist would even mention an article by a pay-per-click rewriter, who sits behind a computer screen and rewrites YOUR hard work!

    I find it shameful.

    I also find it shameful that you give links to the Powells' "parallel" pages, but none to the Koecher timeline that they're so busy protesting.

    Why is that?
