It's not evidence. It's information that may or may not make it to
evidence in a trial.
George Bronx, NY"Perhaps we should leave it up to GOD to pass final
judgment on his guilt or innocence to avoid committing our own sin."You can bet your eternal soul that God will pass final judgment on Mr.
Powell. Unless you know something the rest of us don't both Susan's
sons were killed when Josh blew the house up. Kinda hard to argue innocence on
So what he is DEAD. The government agencies blew it. Why could they have not
found this evidence long time ago. WHAT A BUNCH OF CLOWNS!
Charging is dangerous. Speedy trial is guaranteed. If a person is charged there
is a time clock ticking away. You wouldn't want to be separated from your
kids for a decade while they wait to go to trial. And any lawyer would make them
rush to court and get it over with. How many years has it been since that
wintery night? They still don't have the critical piece. Maybe
the hand written note can help decide the life insurance matter? Quarter of a
million dollars on each toddler child is ridiculous. Should have been a red
Most comments have hit the nail on the head, incompetent police, procedure, and
evidence. Second reason, law enforcement and city mayors don't want to put
people on trial. Circumstantial and hearsay, and opinions is all the evidence
they have. They don't believe in trials and judgment by peers, they all
want walk in negotiated convictions where there has been no trials or
incompetence exposed.Release of this information was for one reason,
so the mayor and chief can continue their political career without this bungled
albatross hanging around their neck as they know peoples political memories are
short and predictable.Whether Josh was guilty or not is irrelevant
anymore, the burden of data and secrecy in their stumbling over their own feet
is having some negative actions on their political careers so they had to unload
it to the public and news media. Never has this ever been done before,
slandering a dead man and his family to cover up their incompetence.
@voice of reason Perhaps we should leave it up to GOD to pass final
judgment on his guilt or innocence to avoid committing our own sin.
Of course they found Susans blood in the their house, she lived there.
Hard to prove murder without proof the victim died. If they had charged and
tried him and failed to get a conviction and later found her body with all sorts
of evidence, it would be too late. Can't try again. Double jeapardy.
More than anything I wish Susan's body could be found so we can lay to rest
what happened and also bring peace to the Coxes and Jennifer Graves.
t702,He didn't out-smart God. I don't know if you have
read or even believe in the Book of Mormon but one of my favorite principles in
it is that no one can hide such things from God. While people may think
they've out-smarted or hidden their crimes or escaped having to face the
facts- it is a lie.
A review of the West Valley or Salt Lake County prosecutors' offices may be
called for with this public release of information that appears to provide
sufficient evidence to have charged Josh Powell with murder even if there
wasn't a body. Even a prosecutor in Washington State has given such an
opinion. This tragedy looks to continue to spread its evil more and more even
as the wife of Josh Powell remains a mystery and Josh Powell's living
presence no longer remains with us to create more questions and doubts.
I think it's way past time to drop the subject and stop the feeding frenzy.
It's over, it's done, let's get on with our lives.
The more facts arise, the more I think that the government agencies really blew
it. From the police department in Utah, to social services,to the police
department in Washington. It seems that if they had pooled their information
better that we may have had a better resolution.
I guess the police is still waiting for the perfect evidence...if Josh survive
the fire, there is still not enough evidence to charge him...pretty smart guy,
to walk away untouched by WVC PDHow on earth did this dude out smart
everybody? With all the suspicious acts and circumstantial evidences no one can
lay a hand on him. I hope the law makers are paying attention and revise the law
to protect the children
Noodlkaboodle,That was my thought exactly. Do they know if it was
more than a simple cut or nose bleed, etc?
@El ChangeoMy thought would be that not enough blood was found to prove
her death or serious injury. I mean, if you looked in my house (and probably
your house) you would find evidence of my blood as well, just because most
people have cut themselves or got a nose bleed or something like that.
If they found Susan's blood, why were those boys allowed to stay with Josh
