OMG, Josh Powell, the man who has long been the suspect in his wife’s 2009 disappearance, has allegedly blown up himself and his two children moments after a case worker brought them for a supervised visitation. Powell lost custody of his boys last year after his father (who they were living with) was arrested for allegedly being in possession of child pornography. Powell’s wife Susan had gone missing in 2009 while he and his boys were on a late night camping trip in Utah’s desert (in freezing temperatures). Despite being a person of interest in the disappearance no charges were ever laid. Last week, a judge ordered that the boys remain in the custody of the Susan’s parents but Powell had visatation rights. Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor told reporters “It was an act of evil. Do not call it a tragedy because that sanitizes it. This was a terrible act of murder involving two young children.”
