How clueless can you be?
How deep in denial can you breathe before you suffocate?
How much can you pretend reality isn’t what it is?
The Powell family wanted to bury Josh Powell next to his children. Why? To make it easier for people to find his grave to spit on it? Didn’t they realize that people were going to want to visit the little boys’ graves without having to see his?
I can understand that they could choose to ignore the fact that he killed his wife. They’ve estranged the one member of the family who think he did kill his wife. They may be the only people on the face of the planet who at this point think it’s still in question.
But you cannot deny he killed the boys. Not without a plot that would make Hollywood blush involving hypnosis, or a time machine, or alien technology.
