Josh Powell, Husband & Prime Suspect in Case of Missing Susan Powell … Kills His Two Children in Murder-Suicide … All Die in Fire During a Supervised Visit
Ok, who thinks that Josh Powell is guilty now in the disappearance of missing 28 year old Utah mom Susan Powell? The final words of a sick, twisted killer … I’m Sorry, Goodbye.
Susan Powell and sons, 7 year old Charles & 5 year old Braden … Rest in Peace
The case of missing Susan Powell just went from the sad to the horrendous and horrific.Josh Powell, the prime suspect in the disappearance of his wife Susan Powell who went missing in 2009, has killed his two children in a murder-suicide, setting his home on fire. The children were dropped off by a social worker for a supervised visit. Josh Powell then slammed the door closed not letting the social worker in the home and then did the unthinkable. There was an explosion and fire engulfed the home killing all inside. Authorities are saying that this was not an accident.
“I just heard a huge explosion,” neighbor Ryan Mickle says. “It shook my house and then I ran outside and the whole house was on fire almost immediately.”
Inside, officials found the bodies of Powell and his two young sons, seven-year-old Charles and five-year-old Braden.
“This wasn’t an accident,” Ed Troyer, of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, declared. “This was Josh Powell, who we believe killed his kids and himself … dead in the fire.”
About ten minutes before the fire started, Powell reportedly sent his attorney an email that read, “I’m sorry. Goodbye.” Then, just minutes after his children were dropped off by a social worker for a supervised visit, the explosion occurred.
“He grabbed the kids,” said Troyer, “locked her out of the house, and immediately, the house went up in flames. … We believe that the house fire went up so fast that accelerants were used.”
As reported at CNN, Josh Powell sent a three-word e-mail to his attorney, “I’m sorry. Goodbye.”
This should make everyone think twice about any type of child visitation to a parent who is accused or under suspicion of a crime when it comes to a missing person or murder. Maybe all supervised visits should now be in public places and not in homes. Our hearts and prayers go to the families who have to cope with this heinous act.

Ya think? Of course sadly the questions come a bit late now, don’t they? One would think that in the future, parents who are prime suspects in serious crimes like missing persons and murders that they either would not be allowed visitation at all or any supervision would be in a public location or controlled environment.
