    JP was supposedly checking out a new generator during the near zero degree camping trip. Generators usually have a device on them that clock the hours used. If this was the first time it had been used then the generator should have clocked hours on it. Haven't figured out if this is useful information or not, but just thought I would throw this info out for thought.

    so, what do you think about this generator? do you really think he had one with him? if so, what did he need it for? i think if he had one with him, it was because he needed it for something and NOT to "test" it. i just cant figure what he would be doin...

    I'm assuming that he had to use the generator for heat in the van during the "camping" trip. You would not be able to use the van's heat because you would not be able to run the engine that long. I'm thinking that he had a heater and a way to heat food in that van. Much like a camper would have, only electrically generated since he needed to use a generator.

    Trying to think outside the box about the generator...would it be useful to have a generator to run...hate to even say this...a saw?

    32. Susan told co-workers she was physically fearful of her husband.

    33. Co-workers say Susan took precautions in case 'anything' happened to her.

    I add to this list that two days after susan goes missing josh rents a car and puts hundreds of miles on it. wonder how long he had the car? I would think it was only for a day or so as he got his van back after three days. We will have to go back and find that media article where his neighbor describes taking him to pick up the car from LE... and what day it was. I am thinking he put hundreds of miles on it in a very short period of time. Very Scott Peterson isn't it?????

    IMO, he went back to where he dumped Susan to make sure no one could see her in the day light.
    Boy I wish someone was tracking him from afar!!!!
    Hope LE was on to this! and just not saying.

    Personally I do not see a confession coming from Josh.
    He thinks he has out smarted the LE.
    Has FBI been brought in like in a kidnapping?
    I guess no crime has really been proven yet til evidence
    comes back from rug, hair, etc.

    Josh was so worried that his bird was dead that first night.
    Yet he left it behind.
    I saw in a video of men taking it out of the house with a blanket around the large cage.
    Exotic birds need allot of care and live a long time.
    Cold is an enemy to them.
    Wonder if Josh is worried about the bird now?
    another 'possession' to him?

    I read last nite that he called a neighbor, John H. to retrieve the bird..

    John Hellewell who is a neighbor of the Powell's found out about the trip Sunday when Josh called him. His first concern was to find someone to "pet sit" his birds. "

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    ha, more than 1 bird........does JP even know he has 'birds' instead of 'bird' that night! JP probably never took care of them, Susan probably did.

    i have parrots too and have had to move in the middle of winter. a quick move they can handle as long at they are covered well. but your correct in that they do live many, many years and require regular consistent feeding (like any pet) i just dont see jp capable of nurturing ANYTHING, humans included. i just hope someone else is caring for the birds and his boys too.

    Yet he left it behind.
    I saw in a video of men taking it out of the house with a blanket around the large cage.
    Exotic birds need allot of care and live a long time.
    Cold is an enemy to them.
    Wonder if Josh is worried about the bird now?
    another 'possession' to him?
    Maybe he's worried the bird will start talking to LE.....

    as funny as this sounds it is realistic behavior of a lot of parrots...depending on which kind you may be dealing with. african gray parrots are the absolute best in mimicking human speech, moo. and they are very very smart. they will repeat words, phrases and "situations" and they dont just repeat it in their bird voice, they will actually sound much like the person who said the phrase. ie my mil has a gray that i heard 'replaying' a phone conversation and i thought it was my mil until i looked and it was the bird. and most parrots have speech abilities. so if susan and josh fought a lot in front of the bird it most likely will repeat some of the things that it heard repeatedly/frequently.

    I agree, some are like 3-4 year old children........
    My friend had one that would come out with stuff that was so funny at wierd times.
    Josh must trust this man with the BIRDS because one might just yell out,
    Stop, your hurting me!
    I even had a parakeet for 16 years that mimicked everyone.
    He would say the same thing over and over til he thought of something else to say.

    yep, then you know what im talking about,lol! my birds are always talking to me -they are so smart... i do remember a bird in a pet store that was previously owned and they were having a hard time selling him because he kept going through a screaming argument between the couple that owned him ... or they curse a lot, lol. also a thought is if the birds are afraid of him, if they wont take their eyes off of his hands and scurry away. once i swatted at a fly with a swatter and omg, all the birds were scared of me for awhile! so if they saw him hitting susan they are probably very fearful of him...

    fran


    1. Husband not the one who reported victim missing.

    2. Husband had 'odd' alibi, ie going camping in sub-zero temperartures, late at night, leaving sick wife home alone in bed, and taking two toddlers, pre five yo's into the freezing winter night.

    3. Change of story details, here and there or becoming evasive.

    4. Avoiding media contact. The few times media managed to get a statement. He cut them off when they asked detailed questions about camping location. His excuse was "I have to get my boys." IMHO, he's using the boys as a shield.

    5. Avoiding media questions, ie "Is that where you went camping?" to which he replies, "I have to pick up my boys."

    6. Avoids wife-victim's family.

    7. Stops talking to LE

    9. Speaks of victim in 'past-tense.'

    17. Testing generator late at night on camping trip

    18. Sledding in the dark? (Locals, is there a place in that area to go sledding in the dark? He told friend he was taking boys sledding, that was at 5:00p.m. and he was seen returning home at 8:30p.m.)

    19. Near frost bitten hands.

    20. Just the sheer distance of the alleged camp site (3 or 4 hours drive)

    21. NOT one sign of husband camping where he said he was.

    22. Just plain talking about 'himself,' rather than his missing wife!!!!!!!!

    23. No sign of forced entry of home.

    (from Texas Mist)

    27. Left sick wife alone, never to check on her and she had NO CAR to go to doctor! (from member passionflower)

    28. Wife had gone to bed sick with an ear-ache which meant she most likely had a cold. Yet, husband made her walk home from church in freezing weather, (they only had one car)

    29. Susan's friend had spoken to her on Sunday and friend said Susan wasn't sick.

    30. Husband said wife sick but she went to bed at 12:30 a.m.

    31. Husband said he forgot it was Sunday but he also said he saw last saw Susan at 12:30 a.m. when she went to bed and he was leaving for camping with the kids. She would have reminded him it was Monday and not Sat nite/Sunday a.m. "Got his days mixed up, thought it was Sunday" yet he neither attends church nor prepares for boys to go.

    32. Susan told co-workers she was physically fearful of her husband.

    33. Co-workers say Susan took precautions in case 'anything happened to her.'

    34. Josh's BIL stated when asked if he believes Josh had anything to do with Susan's disappearance, "I pray Josh isn't responisble."

    35. Susan's friends knowledge of Powell marriage............SEVERAL advised Susan to leave her husband.

    44. First time LE contacted husband as at first the entire family was thought missing, Josh hung up on LE.

    48. LE said Josh is hindering the investigation.

    49. It's not JUST that Josh left town while everyone is trying to look for his missing wife. He did NOT tell LE he was leaving or where he would be, in case his wife returned or she was found!

    Uh-oh

    Local news is reporting the following:

    http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=9166805

    Let's hope this isn't related, and pray still for Susan to come home safely.

    Edited to update: The other news channel is saying that this is a woman, but they are saying it is likely a suicide. It may not be related to this at all.

    A suicide where you set yourself on fire ? I do not believe I have heard of that before. Do we know if Josh is still in WA or cruising Interstate 15 making smores ?
