    Steven Powell was involved in disappearance

    The father of Josh Powell was involved in the disappearance of his son's wife, a member of the Powell family told RadarOnline.

    Josh Powell, who was a person of interest in the 2009 disappearance of his wife Susan, killed his two sons -- Charlie, seven, and Braden, five -- Feb. 5 in a fiery double-murder suicide at his home in Graham, Wash., during a supervised visit.

    After the deaths of his son and grandchildren, Steven Powell -- currently jailed in Tacoma, Wash., on child porn charges -- also was named as a person of interest in the disappearance.
    Kirk Graves, who is married to Josh Powell's sister Jennifer, said he believes that Steven Powell at the "very least" knows what happened to his daughter-in-law.

    "It was a very controlled relationship. Steven controlled Josh, so if he was in trouble, he would have known what was going on, or even worse, been controlling what he did."

    Graves believes Steven Powell did not want Susan involved in the raising of his grandchildren.
    "She was a threat for his control over the family. She was too strong to have around," he said.
    Steven Powell filed court papers last week saying he will not cooperate with investigations being conducted by law enforcement agencies into the case.



    BBM - This is the part I have absolutely NO trouble believing at all. SP was the controller for sure, of the entire family unit (except for those able to escape his confines)

    Is it normal or usual to "file papers" to indicate that you will not be cooperating in an investigation? I don't think I have ever heard of this before.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    I always felt, (Of course) he was involved. He is one strange man.

    I realize he is a person of interest but do they have any evidence against
    him at this point?

    I would honestly think that Jennifer and her hubby would have provided LE absolutely everything they had on this man (SP) and probably everything they had on the family dynamic to assist in their investigation. If not, I certainly hope so

    I just wanted to agree and add that he was also an enabler. We have seen quite a few parents like Steven before who have enabled their children after they murder..

    Too bad they couldn't torture him until he said where to find Susan's body. I have always thought he knew where Susan was.

    This is very interesting, especially the fact that this is coming from HIS family, not the Cox's

    We know at the very least that he took photos of Susan without her knowledge and that in the past he had made unwanted sexual advances toward her and lied about a relationship with her. I figure that's enough to officially be a POI once she turns up missing.

    We wouldn't be much of a country if that's the way we got information. Prisoners - even monsters like this - have rights just like everyone else.

    No I disagree. That is exactly what is wrong with this country. Prisoners have too many rights!
