Josh Powell Killed in an Explosion
Earlier today, Josh Powell was able to visit with his two sons. What was supposed to be a routine supervised visit, soon turned deadly. As a social worker took the young boys to their father's home, she was not let inside.
She knew something was wrong when she smelled gasoline and quickly called her supervisor. Moments later, the house went up in flames. Josh Powell and his two sons were killed.
Investigators are certain that he did this on purpose. Just before the explosion, Powell sent an email to his attorney saying, "I'm sorry, goodbye." A relative of the family stated, "We never contemplated the idea he would do something like this. You just don't expect it from a father," he said, "His world was falling apart around him and he was going to lose his boys and get arrested for Susan's disappearance. He's a narcissist and he has no love for anyone but himself."
