There is a good book that profiles several cases that the author refers to as "eraser" murders -

I would recommend it for anyone interested in the cases of Scott Peterson, Mark Hacking, and others - the author reviews over 50 cases which fit a similar pattern.

Erased: Missing Women, Murdered Wives

Isn't that the same author who profiled Casey Anthony, child killer? And made a similar analogy to her and Mark Hacking? Caylee was going to spill the beans on Casey's non-esxistent life, so she tried to just "erase" her...the problem solved.

I clicked on the link and read about the book. I am familiar with all the cases/men mentioned except Michael White. I'm going to Google that one. Barton Corbin was mentioned. Ann Rule wrote a book about that case. After reading it, to this day I tell people that every high school and/or college psychology class needs to read this book! I couldn't believe what a psycho manipulator this guy is!

Susan Powell has been missing two years this month ... West Valley Police still list Susan as missing and the case is still a top priority. I think this will eventually go totally cold.

Josh Powell is trying to get the children moved to a guardian from Susan's parents ... he says they are turning his children against him .... sounds kinda like what he did to Susan's parents when he wouldn't let them see their grandchildren.

Josh's dad Steve is still in jail ... 14 charges of voyeurism and one of possession of child pornography ... $200,000 bail.

Even if her remains turn up after 2yrs its not likely investigators will find anything to connect Josh Powell with her death.

Camping in blizard conditions with small children, forgetting to go to work the following day?? Doesn't add up.

Another perp who'll get away with murder.

I just hope his dad doesn't get out of jail and Josh gets his kids back and lives with dad!!!!! That would be a sick household to raise children.

That is disturbing. As disturbing as it is that Casey Anthony could have more children. Shudders.

The apple didn't fall far from the tree. The father and son are both sick.

The father (Steven Powell) will get jail time, he'll be a registered sex offender. I don't foresee it happening, but you never know.

Stay tuned. Casey will probably be pregnant with Baez's love child sooner than we think!
