    What if she or someone else already has the money and the police never find it?
    My prayers are for the innocent.

    I can't help but think that the toys may have been SP's items to groom children.

    Josh had a lot to say to Alina, sending her FOUR emails that she refused to voluntarily turn over to police: http://www.abc4.com/content/news/sus...u5ApM3X-Q.cspx
    good ol' Alina ... doing the wrong thing again

It also doesn't surprise me that others reported that he seemed upbeat and happy in recent weeks.

    Giving away belongings, upbeat and happy attitude, closing out affairs are all classic precursor signs in suicidal people. They are actually considered major warning signs and point to danger.

    This case has my head absolutely spinning and I am nauseated at the horror that those two little innocent boys endured at the hands of their father. What a selfish, sick and extremely sadistic man he was.
    [bbm]

    who reported that he's been upbeat & happy? I haven't read that ...
    I agree these are all warning signs ... he was closing up shop

    Suicidal people have been said to often appear happier than they recently were. They have finally made a decision and they are relieved. Giving away possessions is also typical. Clearing up loose ends. Even the utility thing does not surprise me, since if his bill continued, his heirs might need to pay it (Alina).

    They said on Dateline tonight that he withdrew $7,000 cash and transferred a large amount of money to another account--I think they said or implied his sister. The bank knows about it, the cops know about it, so if she doesn't turn it over, she can be arrested for theft. The cash? He told someone where to find it. They will have to figure that out.

    How would it be theft? If it was his money and he gave it to his sister, it was his to do whatever he wanted to with it.

    Just wondering....
    Is it against to law to give your money away before a suicide? I could understand if it was a joint account but if is just in his name.....

    I think the money he transferred before he died could be considered a gift, but the cash that he stashed--if it is still out there, it is still considered Josh's and would be part of the estate. The Coxes might also be able to make an argument about the transferred money as well. I bet a good lawyer would be able to argue that that money should also go to the estate to settle expenses, then go to the statutory heirs, which would be the boys, then to the boys' statutory heirs, which would probably be the Coxes. It would not be fair for Josh to circumvent paying the proper burial expenses for the boys and make the Coxes pay them instead. Alina should do the right thing and turn the money over to the proper authorities so the estate can be properly probated. The money should go to cover the boys' final expenses. Anyone out there know if I am on the right track? It has been awhile since I studied Wills and Trusts.

    I think it is morally wrong to accept and keep money that has been given for the sole purpose of circumventing paying legitimate estate expenses. There are court fees, final burial fees for himself and his children, household fees. The landlord certainly has a claim for the ruin of his house. The insurance company who will have to foot the bill has a claim against Josh for arson. All the money that Josh had should not be given away just before his death to circumvent paying those expenses. I suspect lawyers will find a way to get that money back into the estate. Otherwise, everyone would just give away all their money on their deathbed and nobody would have to pay their creditors upon their death. That would not be fair nor equitable. MOO.

    Probably my imagination running wild here, but here it goes.....

    After reading about his money I am concerned for the safety of those who are left that he and/or his father hated the most. Even more so with his father and what he used to do for a living and the connections he could still have. I pray everyone is now safe from this evil, but it just seems when you think it couldn't get any worse something else comes out.
    All my posts are just my opinion !

    I can't understand how she could be arrested if it was his money. He could do anything or disperse it any way he wanted, imo. ? Maybe I've been on this case too much today? LOL

    Josh was a control freak.

    If there were texts, etc about the distribution of the money with AP before, he may have told her he was planning on booking with the kids....and she was privy to it...not knowing he was really going to do what he did. ??

    The framed photos could be anything though, and if they were released to the Cox family... well, I am just going to assume they were family photos and not posters of some sort.
    I think it was in the Dateline episode that most of the contents of the unit were belongings of Susan's. Not positive...I'd have to go back an listen.

    He sent the email about turning off the utilities a few days before he blew the house up, if I recall correctly.

    If I am correct, I think that he was trying to divert his various supporters' attention from his true plans. If I had been his sister and had gotten an email outlining how to turn off the utilities, etc, I would assume that he was preparing against the eventuality of being arrested and held in jail.

    Not too unreasonable under the conditions.

    And that would also explain any new changes in mood or behaviour: he was getting stressed out about the possibility of arrest.

    Give people an obvious explanation and they are less likely to think of a highly unlikely scenario: planning to kill his children and blow up the house. And so, less likely to take action in time to stop him.

    He was obviously a planner and good at misdirection.

    I believe that if a probate court orders her to return the money and she refuses, she could be in trouble.

    I think the sister thought he was going to leave with the boys during this visitation and didn't realize he planned to kill himself until she got the last email. Just my thought.

    Maybe, he planned to run with them and changed his plans. He might have confided to his sister he planned to dash to another country with the boys. I could see her supporting that decision but, if she knew he was planning murder/suicide that's a whole other story.

    Gifts made prior to death are not part of the probate estate. This is a very common planning technique to avoid probate fees. Under certain circumstances, gifts prior to death may be pulled into the taxable estate when the estate tax return is filed, but that is generally only relevant to high income decedents. He didn't even have to transfer the funds, he could have simply made someone a joint holder on his account and the funds would have transferred to that person immediately upon death (exact verbiage has to be correct and is dependent on state law) and not been included in the probate estate.

    People are allowed to give away their assets to whomever they see fit, even if it disinherits people who would otherwise inherit.

    I am completely convinced his sister had no idea he planned a murder/suicide. While she seems not to have a very rational view of Josh, she clearly loved him and the 911 tape sounded like genuine distress to me.


    While I believe she was wrong about her brother, I think she was another one of his victims.

    No it isn't illegal to give away your money when you are committing suicide, and a suicide wouldn't
    care if it was illegal. But it isn't illegal to receive the money either, unless the person is somehow complicit in the suicide.

    Here is my question. Ok let's say that JP didn't withdraw the money, let's say he transferred it to someone else's acct. Like an online check or something. When they made the suicide call or sent the suicide email, wouldn't they mention the money? If they were a controlling person, a person who was feeling out of control..... wouldn't they give instructions on what they did with the money?

    Like this imagined conversation...."I am sorry for any/all the hurt I may have caused you. I have withdrawn all all my money and sent it to your acct so you will have it for our burials."??? Some kind of mention of it???? So someone is witholding their suicide call. Whose call is it that made the media? Whose call didn't make the media?

    Oddity..... we aren't hearing anything from the mother or the brother Michael. Both have been very quiet since Susan went missing. I am esp interested in Michael. He lived in the home, with SP and AP and JP and the boys. And he has stayed very much in the background.

    I feel pretty confident that LE knows what was said in all emails and all bank transactions, because in doing the investigations into the boys deaths, they have probable cause to search JP's accounts. So they will know who he sent emails to and what they said. And they know whose accounts he sent money to. They will be having some pretty heavy conversations with LE about now.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
