PostSubject: Blood found on comforter in Josh Powell's storage unit   Sat 11 Feb 2012, 4:51 pm

Why after the children had been murdered are police now finding evidence about their missing mother? Why after the children told adults that their mother (who was reported missing) that she was in the truck of the car when they went on a camping trip with their dad, why didn't police search that area sooner? When the CAS worker called 911, why did the 911 sit their asking 50 million dumb ass questions, instead of sending the police out to the father's home. I saw this on Dateline last night and had to shake my head. Supervised visitation should always be held at a neutral facility like they have here in my city to prevent things like this from happening. Such a sad story with a unhappy ending.


(CNN) -- Initial tests detected blood on a comforter found in a storage unit in Washington state belonging to Josh Powell, the man who police say killed his two sons and himself, according to a document filed Friday.

It was not immediately clear who the blood belonged to or how much investigators found on the comforter, which was among the items inside a unit at Western Self Storage in Sumner, Washington. The property report from authorities indicated succinctly that a "presumptive test" of the comforter had tested positive for blood.

Prior to setting a deadly fire Sunday at his Puyallup, Washington, home, Josh Powell was the only person identified by law enforcement authorities in West Valley City, Utah, as someone they were investigating in the disappearance of his wife, Susan Cox-Powell.

According to a search warrant request by Pierce County, Washington, Sheriff's Detective Ryan Salmon, last Sunday "several people began calling 911 saying they had received e-mails from Joshua Powell, telling them goodbye, that he could not live without his kids, and to take care of several things related to his finances."

Before authorities arrived, Powell is accused of snatching his young sons from a social worker who was delivering them for a supervised visit, locking the door, hacking the kids with a hatchet and starting an explosive fire in the home.

The search warrant request noted that the medical examiner's office found "sharp impact wounds ... on the back of the head of the two children," that a hatchet was recovered near their bodies, and that "accelerant was apparently used on the bodies."

According to the detective, Powell last visited the storage unit on the day before he was accused of committing the double murder-suicide. That same day, he withdrew $6,500 in cash from a bank -- money that is "unaccounted for," the document said.

In addition to the comforter, authorities took two plastic bins with miscellaneous items, a box with blocks, a white garbage bag filled with children's clothes and linens, another bag with toys and framed photos from the storage unit. Most of those items were handed over to relatives of Cox-Powell, the property report states.

Funeral services for the two slain boys -- Charlie, 7, and Braden Powell, 5 -- will be held Saturday.

Josh Powell had said that he last saw Susan in December 2009, after he and his two sons left after midnight to go camping in below-freezing weather in a desert area in Tooele County, Utah. Cox-Powell's sister eventually reported the mother, who would now be 29 years old, as missing.

A month later, Powell and his children moved from Utah to Washington.

Quite frankly the whole story turns my stomach,from the father to the soical workers who failed to protect those children.

Supervised visits have been an issue since time began and it still doesn't work.

Same here. One of the children told their teacher about how their dad put the mother in the truck of the car during their camping trip. Had they listened to the children, they would still be alive today.

Yorkie, I agree that supervised visitations do not work. IMO, if a person needs supervised visitation, they should not have any visitation rights at all for the safety of the children.

And then there's the Westboro Church.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/blogpost/post/josh-powell-funeral-protest-cancelled-by-westboro-church/2012/02/10/gIQAf7S73Q_blog.html

I don't get it?

"The church blamed the Powell sons’ deaths on Washington state's legalizing of same-sex marriages, according to the News Tribune in Tacoma."

How so?
