Susan can not defend herself against these alegations. The only reason the
father in law said they had a relationship was to protect himself when they
found the pictures. There is no way it was a consentual relationship. The
pictures were taken without her knowledge.
Heidi, please dont blame any vice, he is a bad person. Images or any other
addiction didnt force him to behave this way, it was a continued calculated
choice to behave this way, dont take that responsibility off josh's father. I
have multiple friends who are current pierce county deputies, they are committed
to ending this, and I thought local news org's reported that the children were
already removed and in protective custody, but I would like to see that quickly
chamge and go to susan's parents.
TandJ, good job trying to "modify" response carefully. Reasonable
question to ask if you believe what Josh and Steven have been saying. In a related DN article, it says a couple of times that Susan Cox Powell was
filmed by Steven, but she was obviously unaware of being filmed.No
more questions, please, about Susan's character. She is/was a normal, healthy,
good person. No one is perfect, but she was obviously a good person. Those who are interested in this case (I am on the edge of my seat because
Josh has been to my house 3 times and talked to me. I thought he was a bit
odd...), ought to question the characters of Josh and Steven.It goes
to show what horrible things porn can do to people. And what other obsessions
can do. Good job police department, et al. They are doing everything in an
orderly, professional manner. Who knows what else will be discovered.And Good job Cox family for filing for custody of the boys.
The more evidence they locate the more it looks like Steven Powell done it and
his son is just trying to create a diversion to cover for the father. I
agree the feeling of compassion should be for the boys and Susan's family.We now know what a bunch of sick individuals the father and son are. Probability Susan was going to expose the scenario so she had to be done away
Well, I will try to get by the DS monitors again. Here is my modified
response:It is nice that the posters here recognize the flaw in the
character of the father-in-law, but apparently you all seem to also recognize,
without having viewed the videos, the completely unflawed character of the
daughter-in-law. What happens, however, if the videos show the daughter-in-law
being an agreeable accomplice, possibly even flirting? It might just cast a
different light on the situation.
I would like to suggest to Deseret News add the strong denials by Susan's family
and sister-in-law about the supposed flirting whenever they report on the
father-in-law's claims so that new readers have both sides of the story.
Under investigation for two years and they just now find this stuff? It all
seems just a tad too convenient to me.
Couldn't happen to a more deserving person! This family never ceases to amaze
Could be that Josh was correct about some things he has said about his wife.
The first rather plausible (but still very unbelievable)reason that Susan may
have "run away with that other guy that went missing about the same
time." Like we all believed in that story! If I had a husband and
father-in-law such as Susan's, I would have run away, too, but never without
taking my children with me. Something stinketh in Denmark, so to speak.
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.
And the acorn doesn't fall too far from the tree.
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.
Hmmmm. Another "Person of interest."(?)This opens up some
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.
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.
Now who is going to protect and provide for Josh? Get those two boys out
of that house.
It's about time!
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.
I wonder why Steven Powell would stick around when he knew these videos were
taken from his home. Many people would disappear.
Now I know what it means When people say I just threw up a little in my mouth
Who'd a thunk it...ewww.
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,
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.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Well, there goes his music career.
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.
Sick, sick, sick.Time to get those boys out of that house.
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.
I have to agree with you photographermom........ Doesnt suprise me either. I do feel sorry for those two young boys in the home though.......
What?! This is shocking. Oh wait.....not it' not.
