It was unquestionably frustration--conveyed thru saracasm--aimed solely at the perp. I've been consistent in my outrage at this case--nor have I ever treated any violence or victimization lightly.

    If one hasn't in a few weeks come across any humor yet while posting here, then one clearly has not read the threads in this forum--nor any other crime forum here. While following any murder or missing person's case, particularly a long protracted one, I've seen even humor (vs sarcasm I used re perp's deception and manipulation) used never at a victim's expense but sparingly, judiciously and appropriately to break up stress and a near constant tension and frustration at the injustice and often slow progress.

    If after 40 posts eg one is unable to discern nor appreciate the difference, one will become quickly offended but when you go the long haul--as in Haleigh case eg, where we are approaching the one-year mark w still no arrest--we see irony, sarcasm, dry wit and humor interlaced liberally and by some of the most dedicated posters we have. The same ones who contribute serious posts and useful info. Again, if that is offensive one may need to skip vast majority of posts altogether. The comment quoted re photo opp was an eg of sarcasm directed at the POI--not attacking a poster. If I couldn't recognize the difference or appreciate the "lighter" moments around here, I'd have flown the coop a long time ago.

    Prayers as always for Susan to be found, her boys kept safe from harm, and her family comforted.

    Ok, call me confused,..............or just dense. I don't get this deal with Josh's dad and Susan. Are we to understand that the discord between Susan and Steven is more than just an interferring in-law? I mean I know of a mil vs. dil where the mil constantly tried to come between her son and dil and she had even managed at one point, to break-up the bros first marriage.

    Ok, so??????????? Steven has made some type of advances toward Susan? Just a yes or no.

    or............was he just an interferring so and so who wanted to control his son's relationship?

    This COULD put an ugly twist to this case and muddy the waters with suspects and motive.

    The more I read, the more I realize how hard Susan's marriage must have been.

    Chuck Cox said he bought his daughter a cell phone when she moved to Utah so she could use it for emergencies. Joshua Powell knew about the phone, he said, but he and Judy paid the bill each month to ensure his daughter had a way to call them. "We wanted her to be able to call us whenever she wanted -- just on the off chance that if something ever got really weird -- we wanted to cover all of our bases so she could call us for help," he said.

    He said it's excruciating to hear his 4-year-old grandchild, Charlie, talking about "Mommy being lost."
    "That's all he knows," Chuck Cox said. "He's too young to understand."

    (bbm) Thanks fran for beating me to this... couldn't have put it better myself and by doing so you've undoubtedly spared me even more "admiration" or at least kept it all from going to my head... don't know how many more warm fuzzies I can take today

    I used to like to play "Hot and Cold" when I was in grade school... when a person is missing or murdered, on a crime forum... not so much.

    If we have evidence on which to base those allegations or knowledge that there was something of a sexual nature then that should be revealed to LE vs. simply dangling hints or salacious tidbits here like proverbial carrots on a string.

    Amen, kiki my friend! Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying. That said, I imagine that if one was just starting to follow cases such as this, humor could possible seem out of place at times. Give it a few months Bartleby, you will thankful for every little chuckle you can find. Following these cases (even though we are just armchair sleuths for the most part) can become a huge stressor in life if you don't watch out. Just sayin..

    Thanks friend I feel certain however that if I did even a search of lo these long 13 days or so, that I could find egs of humor by some already encountered even enjoyed, but for w/e reason others become the personal recipient of sarcasm. I'm a big bird... I can take it.

    I just needed to make a distinction between the two. Our newcomers will be hard pressed to find posters here or anywhere else who take this nor any other crime, domestic abuse, or victim advocacy more seriously than I do. JMO

    Something inconsistent here in Joshy's story (what else is new?)

    He told a reporter that he was "confused about what day it was." Since he missed church, he thought it was still Sunday.

    Then, when Jovonna finally gets him on his cell, he tells her Susan is "at work"!

    Which is it, Josh? Did you know it was Monday, or not? Did you purposely miss work without calling in, or did you think it was Sunday. And if you thought it was Sunday, why would Susan be at work?

    And...if Susan was "at work," how the H*LL did she get there when you were driving the only car?!!!!

    And thank heavens there are funnier people than me lol, true comedians (and comediennes) among us... Dr. Fessel eg keeps me in stitches and I was lost, depressed bird w/out that lifesaving humor. Whether dealing w these stressful cases or even personal life circumstances and tragedies, for me humor has become survival.

    (I'm still laughing about "Billy, Go Stand By the Wet Spot..." lol!! ) JMO

    Oh wow, that's just sad..and scary..
    I haven't been able to keep up the last couple of days...but I have to say..that comment from her dad is just so sad to me. JMO, but it tells me that whether or not they ever even admitted it to each other, her parents knew that there was potential for major problems AND were worried about it before Susan and J even moved to Utah...

    That one statement from them puts a knot in my stomach, not because I believe that it changes the outcome, but because her family (not saying that they could have done anything about it) had apparently actually thought out scenarios where Susan would have no way to get in touch with them early on and had to make sure that being able to stay in touch was not in Josh's hands to decide. What had happened up until that point (before they moved to Utah) to make her family feel this way? Has anyone heard what their life was like before?

    JMHO and not worth a plug nickle to most but Joshy boy is guilty, guilty, guilty, doesn't appear to have a lick of common sense...and has just gotten lucky up to this point. Everyday I log on praying first to read that Susan has been found and next hoping to see that an arrest has been made and that Joshy's sniveling, cowardly, whimpering, wussy boy azz is behind bars where he belongs. <<< ALL JMO and for those that feel differently, hopefully we can just agree to disagree....

    Gold star for you Gwen. 2 excellent catches!!! and right in a row

    We understood the BS about "I was thinking it was Sunday", but then when asked where Susan was....and stating "at work" IOW--"It is MONDAY"

    kiki, here's one more warm and fuzzy coming your way.:beagle-flip:

    The humor we have all shared in the middle of our anguish and yearning to find Susan is needed.

    It's great that Mr Cox was willing to foot the bill for the cellphone. I know first hand that a husband with a controlling personality will use the expense of phone calls as a reason to cut off the relationship between his wife and her family, even while buying a new generator.
