I just saw this and came here to start a thread about it but I see you've already posted this.

Oh, this is such a horrible turn of events. I don't know if the caseworker could have done anything to prevent it but he/she will have to live with this horror.

And those poor grandparents! They lost their daughter - most likely at the hands of her husband - and now their grandchildren.

My heart is breaking.

Adult, 2 children killed in explosion at Josh Powell home | Local & Regional | KATU.com - Portland News, Sports, Traffic Weather and Breaking News - Portland, Oregon

GRAHAM, Wash. - A powerful explosion and fire at the home of Josh Powell has killed two children and an adult male believed to be Powell and his two young sons, officials say.

The explosion shook the normally quiet cul-de-sac neighborhood where Powell, the husband of missing mom Susan Powell, had been living. It came just moments after a caseworker had brought Powell's two young sons there for a visit.

Omg... I just read this in the news. Horrible!!! omg! He had a supervised visit with the caseworker and the boys were brought over there. My heart breaks for them all of them at the hands of the sicko husband. I hope he rots in Hell. Those poor boys.

Anyone else suspect that Powell planned this?

It's suicide most definitely in my opinion. They said it happened minutes after the caseworker left! OMG. I am so angry for those precious boys. The jerk sent his lawyer an email that said "sorry, goodbye"!! What a coward! Why couldn't he just do himself in and leave the boys out of it. Selfish.

I didn't realize the grandparents DID get custody FINALLY in Sept. of them. My heart is breaking. Hopefully at least the boys are with their mother now. There's a place in Hell for people like him!

Of course he planned it! From the report I posted, he got the kids into the house, locked the caseworker out, and then the caseworker smelled gas. And then the three word note to his attorney....

Does anyone think this wasn't planned?

My heart breaks for those poor grandparents and everyone else who loved those boys. I know Josh's sister has been very vocal about her belief in his being responsible for Susan's disappearance, as well as being very critical of her own father (the perv). I'll bet she's devastated.

Horrible.

Murder-suicides are the ultimate in a big F-U to the people left behind.

What is even worse is that they are not completely uncommon.

This just reveals the depth of this person's dysfunction.

I tend to want to give people the benefit of the doubt until there are enough solid facts, but from the first time I heard about his story of taking the toddlers out camping at midnight on a Sunday night in freezing temps, I knew he was guilty.

And now he has just spread the original devastation he caused a bit further....leaving even more people to suffer in pain. .... at least this toxic individual is no longer around to bother anyone else or waste taxpayer's money in years of court and then decades of appeals and time in prison.

I just wished he did this solo and not with his boys. They said he was trying to regain custody of the boys a week or two ago and his lawyer said he had to undergo a psych eval *ya think?*.....and Josh was "upset" about it!. No one goes camping at midnight with two small kids! Maybe his guilt got the best of him.

It was a psychsexual eval and a lie detector test. Obviously he knew he would NOT pass either. There was something on his computer in UT that was not released but was known to the Family Court judge.
