Live tweeting the trial of a disgusting human being…
I have followed the disappearance of Susan Cox Powell for some time. Obviously, her husband had something to do with it. If he could bash his sons in the head with an ax and then blow them up, he could kill her, too.
The weirdest, sickest part of this entire story is the obsession of Josh Powell’s father with Susan Powell. Things he said to the press and evidence found on his computer display an unhealthy sexual obsession with her. (Apparently, the move to Utah was to get away from him.)
Her disappearance caused the police to search Steven Powell’s computer. He is now on trial for the possession of child pornography, and for the fact that he took pictures of two minor neighbor girls through their bedroom window without their knowledge.
There was a longer article about him on Sunday: He is a sick, sick man.
UPDATE: They’re having trouble getting a jury because so many people have seen media reports or just have strong feelings about sex crimes.
I would definitely not be able to sit on this jury. I followed it in the media, I have strong feelings about sex crimes, and I am LDS. Also, I don’t live in Tacoma.
