The money should be returned to the insurance company.
I'm very suprised that the insurance companies aren't fighting this
to. Since neither of the principles and heirs are alive, no one should get
anything. I'm saddend for the Cox's and their double loss of their
daughter and grandsons. Powell's family shouldn't get a dime either.
Their collective behavior, especially the Josh and his Dad has been particularly
depsicable. If I was the insurance company, I'd not pay either family a

responsible for the "sins of the father" or in this case family
members?There are no winners here. It is a terrible tragedy; but to
sweep aside the feelings and trials of the Powell family is cold and callous.
Josh was never even charged, even after an investigation of several years. But
even if had been, and convicted; that would still change nothing of the

The Powell family know where their son and grandchildren are and what happened
to them. It is extremely unfortunate that the Cox family can't have the
same closure. Maybe getting the money would give the Cox family the resources to
find their daughter and bring her home. If Josh's mom and sister say he
killed her then the insurance money shouldn't go to him or his family
because he committed a crime to get the money.
If Powell killed her, her family should get all the money. If she is not dead,
her family should get all the money. The fact that the Powells are even
attempting to get anything as a result of their murdering relative is
disgusting. Let's hope the Court uses common sense.
The Powell family doesn't need anyone's else to gain bad publicity or
make them look bad. They are doing a dynamite job of that on their own.
Interesting conundrum for both families. In order to defeat the Cox family
claim (and get the money), the Powell family has to allege that Josh Powell
killed Susan Powell -- something that they have denied since this miserable
business started. In order to defeat the Powell family claim (and get the
money), the Cox family has to allege that Josh Powell did not kill Susan Powell
and that, in fact, Susan survived Josh -- something that they have denied since
this miserable business started. My feeling is simple -- a pox on both
families. Have neither of them get the money. Let the money go to a worthy
charity that has no connection, and no name association, with either family.
"The Powells ... contend that the supplemental motion was simply filed by
Cox to generate negative publicity toward them."The Powells
don't need anyone to generate negative publicity towards them. They are
doing that well enough on their own. Their son killed their
grandchildren, the mother is missing and all they can do is say, "Show me
Don't forget, one of the Powell sisters is firmly in the Cox's corner.
Even she can see that her family is acting in a despicable manner.
I support Chuck Cox completely. He is merely trying to deal with the situation
as best he can. The Powell family, on the other hand, continues to show no
mercy or remorse. I would hope that the court can look past the facade of legal
technicalities in this case and make any and all awards to the Cox family.
Cox may be using some gamesmanship, but it was his daughter who was presumably
killed. Clearly he should stand to receive some form of (albeit) minimal
This becomes more disgusting every day!
Lets hope that what is left of the Powell family will see that Chuck and his
wife gets everything they deserve! Cause I know the Cox family will spend every
dime of that money trying to find her and bring her home and making sure there
is never another victim like Susan and her boys!
