    I recall reading that Susan had spoken to someone from her church about marital problems, and that there were money issues, etc. I guess the husband could use that to bolster his argument that she left him for another man, but most women don't leave their kids.

    I don't know what the situation with the FIL was, if he lived near them at the time. Was he even around when she disappeared? I'd have to know that before I suspected him.

    In any case, I hope this one gets solved and the guilty parties get what's coming to them.

    These cases always have me so mystified. Laci Peterson, Lisa Stebic, Susan Powell. Never heard of a man just up and disappearing, leaving his wife and kids. Do these guys really want us to believe that they just up and left, got new identities, left their children behind?

    I wish they would solve these. I hate the smug satisfaction these bastards have going on.

    I heard the father-in-law was arrested. I guess they found child porn in his home while looking for Susan's journals and evidence. Doesn't surprise me,.....he is an admitted creep anyway. But I got the vibe he was a real sick bastard! I hope he didn't touch his grandsons.

    We all knew he was a creep, but this is way worse. He can't get out of this one.

    Susan Powell father-in-law: child porn charges

    (AP) TACOMA, Wash. -- The father-in-law of a missing Utah woman was charged Thursday with voyeurism and possession of child pornography after police investigating her disappearance came across thousands of images of women videotaped without their knowledge, some of his daughter-in-law, Pierce County authorities said.
    Steven Powell, 61, was arrested at his Puyallup, Wash., home and set for arraignment Friday in Superior Court.

    Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said Powell was charged with 14 felony counts of voyeurism and one count of possession of child pornography. He said police found "thousands of images of females being videotaped without their knowledge, including Susan Powell," on tapes and discs seized from his home during an Aug. 25 search as part of their investigation into her disappearance.

    Powell is the father of Josh Powell, Susan's husband, who is the only named person of interest in his wife's disappearance. Josh Powell has never been arrested or charged in the case. The two live together in Washington.

    "The photographer focuses on the women's buttocks, breasts," Lindquist said in a statement. "Many images were of minor females."

    The images included shots of two girls who were as young as 8 and 10 years old at the time, the prosecutor said.

    Pierce County authorities determined those girls lived near Steven Powell from June 2006 to August 2007.

    Pierce County Sheriff's DETECTIVE Ed Troyer told CBS affiliate KIRO in Seattle, "We found a ton of photographs of kids in parks, kids - where kids congregate. A lot of them are close-up pictures of their body parts ... which are inappropriate. Also, we found pictures of Susan Cox Powell. He's creepy. And I think this just kinda proves that."

    A person who answered the phone at the Powell home Thursday night hung up on a reporter.

    Police have said Josh Powell has been uncooperative in the investigation into his missing wife. He claims he took the couple's two sons — then ages 4 and 2 — on a midnight camping trip in the mountains west of Salt Lake City on Dec. 6, 2009, the night before Susan Powell was reported missing.

    Authorities have spent the last 10 days searching a remote central Utah desert about 30 miles from where Josh Powell claims he went camping that night. At one point, they said they found a "shallow grave" after cadaver dogs alerted them to the spot, but they later found no human remains.

    The search of the Powell's home came after police wrapped up a search for evidence in a network of abandoned mines outside Ely, Nev.

    Around that time in August, Josh Powell and his father went on national television to discuss the case.

    They claimed Susan Powell was promiscuous, emotionally unstable and suicidal, a claim her family denies.

    Steven Powell said he had a flirtatious relationship with his daughter-in-law and believed they were in love.

    "Susan was very sexual with me," Steve Powell told a national television news show. "We interacted in a lot of sexual ways because Susan enjoys doing that."

    Susan's father, Chuck Cox, denied the allegations, and said it was Steve Powell who initiated unwanted sexual advances. Cox didn't return a telephone call Thursday night.

    Josh Powell has denied killing his wife or having anything to do with her disappearance.

    "I would never even hurt her," a tearful, red-eyed Josh Powell told "Early Show" contributor Hattie Kauffman in August.

    Josh and his father have said they believe Susan Powell ran off with another man.

    "I'm still thinking she left," Steve Powell told the AP in August. "Hopefully they'll be able to find her at some point ... We don't believe she's dead."

    I can totally believe the FIL did it theory now. He probably made a pass at her and got angry when she denied him so he killed her. I also think when any husband refuses to cooperate with investigators regarding his wife's disappearance, it usually means he's guilty in some way.

    I hear ya...I was sooo happy when they threw Drew Peterson in jail and slapped that smug look off his face. I doubt he'll ever be charged for Stacey's death, and I have my doubts he'll be convicted for the ex-wife's death either. But it's still good to know he's been sitting in jail without bond for the past few years.

    It's amazing and scary how these guys are so good at hiding bodies and leaving no physical evidence behind. How likely is it these women all ran off with handsome strangers, abandoned their children and families, never to be heard from again? It's bad enough they kill them, then they assassinate their characters too.

    I'm so glad this Powell FIL was arrested, even if it's not relating to Susan's disappearance. It was obvious the man was a perv after the insulting, creepy things he said about her.

    Was the FIL living near them or visiting when Susan disappeared? Did he always live in Washington?

    This guy is strange. Now, I'm thinking this is the reason his own daughter says there is something wrong with him and her brother. Maybe he was inappropriate with her.

    That was my first thought too Kris. I hope she will come forward if there is more she can tell.

    Exactly. If you are unhappy and find a new man, you leave, and you take your kids with you.

That's the kind of stuff someone would tend to bring with them unless they were abducted or killed suddenly. Did cops find any evidence on the phone, or in the phone records that she was contacting anybody else? If they didn't, then I would be curious to know how she would be running off with someone that there wasn't a phone, text message, or email trail for.

    Josh Powell Now Subject of Child-Porn Investigation

    Following last week's arrest of Steven Powell the father-in-law of missing Utah woman Susan Powell on child-porn possession and voyeurism charges, Steven's son and Susan's husband, Josh Powell, is also the subject of a child-porn investigation, according to Washington state assistant attorney general John Long.

    Josh and his two sons had been living in Steven's house. The accusation about the child porn drew an immediate denial from Josh. "I have had nothing to do with any kind of illegal pornography," he said in a court hearing Tuesday.

    Steven, 61, was arrested in his Puyallup, Wash., home and booked on suspicion of 14 counts of voyeurism and one count of possessing depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Some of the subjects in the images were videotaped without their knowledge and were as young as 8 and 10, said prosecutor Mark Lindquist.

    Steven Powell has pleaded not guilty.

    Pierce County sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer told Tacoma's News Tribune that everyone in Steven Powell's house is a person of interest. "We have not eliminated anybody and we are not at the point of arresting anybody else," Troyer said.

    Following Steven's arrest, the state Children's Administration removed Susan and Josh's 4- and 6-year-old sons from his home. The boys have been placed in the home of Susan's parents, Chuck and Judy Cox, until further court notice, said Sherry Hill, a spokeswoman for the Children's Administration, reports Fox News.

    "The Cox family has had a very good and very strong relationship with these children," Chuck Cox's attorney, Steve Downing, said Tuesday afternoon. "They had a joyous reunion and that's all I can say."

    According to Fox, the attorney also told Judge Kathryn Nelson that the children were at risk because they had never received counseling about their mother's 2009 disappearance, they possibly were exposed to their grandfather's alleged inappropriate videos, and they had been estranged from their maternal grandparents without explanation.

    "Those kids may know something, and he sure as the dickens doesn't want them talking to anybody," Downing told the court, reports the Associated Press.

    Josh Powell insisted he's a good, loving father, no harm was coming to his kids, and there has been no exposure to any pornography. He also stated that his family would not be posting the $200,000 bail for his father, and should Steven Powell return home, Josh and his sons would check into a hotel.

    "There is no clear and present danger to my sons," he said.

    Josh Powell initially told investigators he last saw his wife the night of Sunday, Dec. 6, 2009, at their then-home in West Valley City, Utah, southwest of Salt Lake City, when he took their sons for an overnight camping trip. He has since refused to talk to authorities, and has suggested his wife ran off with another man.

    This is great news. Susan may never get "justice" but at least those kids are out of that sick household and with her parents. Even if they can never prove murder, I hope they can at least tie Josh Powell to the child porn thing so they can get permanent custody.

    ^ Agreed! If anything, at least the kids can get some professional help with their mother's disappearance. I can only imagine what they're gonna tell their grandparents if they haven't been able to speak to them this whole time.

    I think it will be very hard for those boys at first, they probably barely remember their grandparents. Maybe the older one will somewhat, but the youngest was only two when his mom disappeared. And who knows what they've been told and subjected to since then.
