    Whatever happened with the burned fragments found by Topaz mountain? The dogs indicated they contained human remains. Does anyone know?

    Munk, You might not be willing to believe Josh is guilty of killing his wife, but most people are. Only jurors and judges are required to assume innocence until proved guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. We citizens are certainly free to protect ourselves, our families and others from those we have reason to believe are a danger. We don't have to assume innocence. Josh appears to be as guilty as sin. He claimed to have taken his kids camping on the coldest night of the winter on the same night his wife disappeared into thin air. He is perfectly willing to blame her for her disappearance, dredging up high-school journals and saying she probably ran off with another man, a claim for which he had zero proof. He refused to explain how he put hundreds of miles on a rental car shortly after his wife's disappearance. He and his father criticize the police at every turn for efforts into investigating her disappearance. He suddenly demands his kids stay away from church where they might learn the difference between good and evil. He refuses to help the police. He leaves the state. He has done nothing to indicate innocence.

    I'm wondering what he purchased at Home Depot with his boys in tow that might trigger a memory if they visited there with the grandparents. What kind of a parent would demand these bizarre restrictions?

    Josh's demands show that he cares more about himself than about his sons. He wants to remain the only "good guy" in their lives by denying them the opportunity to participate in activities they enjoy unless he is the only one they associate those activities with.
    Hey Josh, WVPD is still waiting for that interview with the FBI you promised!

    Josh Powell is a deeply disturbed individual as is his father. I am not going to accuse him of anything as in our courts people are innocent until proven guilty, however, it is in my opinion that he has control issues. I am just grateful that the boys are with their maternal grandparents.

    I had been wondering about those kids and how they are getting along. Sounds like they are in good hands!

    For Josh to dictate every single possible outing or experience the boys could or would have shows an extreme level of control that would be a factor in a trial, if ever it would come about. Why couldn't the boys go swimming, if they never did it before with their father, and would want to do so now with their cousins? That tells me that Josh has done more emotional and mental damage to those boys than initially thought.

    Mr. and Mrs. Cox - well done in trying to keep life wonderful for the boys. It is very hard, but your fortitude and resolve are amazing.
