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.
I had been wondering about those kids and how they are getting along. Sounds
like they are in good hands!
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.
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!
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?
What normal child would have "nightmares" or "be afraid of the
dark?? Hmmmm, something is suspicious here, the kids must of experienced
something to react in that manner.
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.
Whatever happened with the burned fragments found by Topaz mountain? The dogs
indicated they contained human remains. Does anyone know?
