Look at the amended floor plan I posted and I will try to explain better: the carpet was removed from the wall behind the couch, out to the end table and love seat area on the left side, and all the way over to the entertainment center wall on the right side...and then extending halfway into the room...the carpet starts up again about where the words 'Living Room' are in the floor plan picture.
Hope that helps! Sorry I can't do more right now.
That is interesting they took the carpet that was under the couch.
Sounds like Wayne is implying JP opened the door without worrying about whether it might be media or LE...as in, he's not SCARED to answer the door. (Sounds like he should be, based on Shelby G's comments!)
P.S. - Nobody in my neighborhood has a peephole...We look out the windows instead.
Fran - I just noticed there is a button at the bottom right of each post that looks like a sheet of paper with end quotes and plus sign over it. I have not used it but just now when I moused over it, the tool-tip said "multi-quote this message." Hope that helps!
I do NOT always answer my door. IF it's a salesman or such, nope!
Many years ago we had a double solid door and you couldn't see the front door from any of the windows. I had my hubby put a peep hole thingy in.
Soooo...........is this guy saying Josh answered the door even though he didn't know who it was?
PS..........thanks for the info Mesmerized. I think I tried that once and still couldn't figure it out. I'll try again...........fran
The Powell's home sits at the end of the cul de sac. You can view from the front window any person driving toward the house for the entire block. You can view the front porch from the front window. The floor plan given is not 100% accurate. The living room windows are 'bay'. LE stood on the front porch to break out the window during the first welfare check at the home.
But here's a question for you all -- why would the glass from the window be outside of the house and on the front porch. If you break a window from outside -- doesn't the glass fall inside the house?
That has been bothering me. But I don't have any experience with breaking windows and where the glass would fall. Maybe it's nothing about nothing, but thought I would ask here.
Thanks for the info UtahMom.
About the window glass. From what I know, if the window was broken from the outside, the glass should be inside the house. LE said there was no evidence of break-in, so ????????????
I don't know the answer to your question on why there was glass on the outside.
Anybody see this in the Deseret News article comments?
"Wayne Hamberg | 3:21 p.m. Feb. 2, 2010
It is my belief GIFFORD LIED yesterday to assist Police in setting up Josh Powell.
The Cox have failed to maintain any relationship with their grandkids though the Powell's invited the cox to their home to visit the grand kids."
Who's to say it was really WH commenting, but still...How naive can a person be? Believing what JP says as if it's gospel, and being shocked LE might provide "disinformation" to/through the media. What a load of...well, you know.
Once again, I must have missed something.
Did Shelby Gifford say the Coxes were not allowed to see the kids? I don't recall that. I have heard that they won't let the boys visit the Coxes outside of the Powells' home.
Even that seems strange - although, not stranger than anything else about the Powells. Other than wanting to control the information the boys might share with the Coxes, what possible reason could Josh have for not wanting to let them go visit their Grandparents in their Grandparents' home? Let's say he's innocent. You have these seemingly-kind people who have gone through a tragedy that is about as bad as anything anyone could imagine. And in spite of your acting like a general putz since this all happened, they've treated you with kindness through the process. So they want to spend a Saturday with your boys. Where is the harm?
It's just one more thing that he does that just doesn't fit with the actions of an innocent person. I can't say I have any personal precedent upon which to draw in such a situation. But I think most people have fairly consistent processes of decency and compassion. Josh's is either so outside the norm that it's shocking; or he is trying to cover something up. I think most everyone who has followed this at any level has a pretty good feel for which one of those describes Josh.
Maybe we should start a new thread. Or rather then a new thread, maybe we should start breaking things down into topics, so that it can easily be located in the future.
Be Kind to yourself, you are worth it!
