    There is no reason to prevent the house from being rented if it has already been processed as a crime scene OR there isnt sufficient proof that the house is a crime scene.

    Maybe the van was the crime scene.

    O/T but mentioned in the comment section of the article, it indicates that Susan's parents are refusing to go visit the boys because it would require them to stay with Josh.

    That makes no sense to me, FWIW. Those boys need people in their lives who love them and will fight for them. I suspect their mom did both, when all is said and done...JMO.

    It is creepy. Can you imagine being in the livingroom, bedroom and garage wondering if this is where it happened. I would probably be on my hands and knees looking under baseboards. Searching for anything Josh may have accidentally left behind. If it does in fact come out that Susan passed away in the home .....
    Well, just to creepy for me. I wouldn't live in that home either way, just knowing Susan went missing from there.

    The Cox family are in a terrible situation, and they are having to deal with a man who is acting like it's no big deal that their daughter has "disappeared".
    I'm sure the Cox family wants to see those boys desperately. I can think of a few very good reasons to avoid an unsafe place to visit them, in the short term. Chances are, the Coxes are getting excellent advice. Down the road, they may well petition for custody of those boys.
    I have been confused and a bit troubled by some of the friends of Susan/Josh, but the Cox family has never done anything that would make me question their motives. They don't seem to be documenting the chapters of Josh's life. They are not oddly overinvolved with him, they are just requesting he cooperate with police.
    I trust the Cox family completely. They have my full and unwavering support.
    I believe in being a resolute voice for crime victims who can no longer speak for themselves.

    I get your point, Gin. I am not quarterbacking-much is lost in translation in the type of media circus going on in this case....I will say that in their defense.

    I fear for the children-especially if either of them witnessed something and can communicate it.

    Husband: I thought we agreed to keep everything locked, even during the day!
    Wife: Right! Did you check all the doors and windows?
    Husband: No!
    Wife: Why?
    Husband: Because you did!
    Wife: No, I didn't!
    Husband: Well, I'm already in bed and you are up so you do it!
    Wife: I won't!
    Husband: Why?
    Wife: I'm not going out there!
    Husband: Oh brother! Just go check!
    Wife: You promised me, when we discussed renting this house, that you would keep me safe so you go do it!
    Husband: (Slides open night stand drawer): Smith, Wesson and I will protect you!
    Wife: Where did you get that!!!!!
    Husband: I found it today when I installed the ceiling fan!
    Wife: What do you mean?!!
    Husband: Remember the stack of bran new ceiling fans shrink wrapped together down in the basement that JP said he was going to return to KMart the next time he comes down?
    Wife: Yes!
    Husband: Well, I figured that I'd just install them then give him the money!
    Wife: But what does that have to do with the gun?
    Husband: Well, when I opened the first box, this gun and an opened box of bullets was in it! I figure an employee at KMart hid them in the box then planned on having one of their friends buy the fan but there was a mix up and JP bought the fan instead!
    Wife: That's really strange! Did you call KMart?
    Husband: No! I called JP!
    Wife: When? What did he say?

    Actually, many home mortgage contracts have a clause that says you may not use the home as a rental unless you have permission from the lender. I know mine does. Mortgage lenders want to know if the home is being occupied by the owner or renters for obvious reasons. I wonder if his lender knows he is renting it out? If he has broken the terms of the contract, they could foreclose immediately. I feel bad for the people who rented the house. They could be out on their hind ends sooner than they expect!

    Checking the deed at the Salt Lake County Recorder's office will provide the name of the lender. However, one has to go there in person or have an account to access the documents online.

    They could, but in the current home market and relatively high unemployment they probably have their hands full with all people who are late on payments. For the renters' sake I hope he keeps making payments. Unless he is cash-flow positive with the rent that may not be a safe assumption.

    I wonder if they will move in with the living room floor "as is"...with half the carpet missing where presumably [at least some messy part] of the deed was done?

    Now I'm feeling like I might throw up a little in my mouth.

    Presumably the carpet was replaced in that room if he was going to the trouble to fix-up the basement. Should be easy, especially with all the furniture out.

    I know.

    But, surely he replaced the carpet? Did any neighbors see new carpet coming in the house? I find it really surprising that we don't have any reports of his activity while he worked on his house.

    Exactly, which has me thinking it is someone that knows Susan . So it is being kept quiet. I sure wish the swing set neighbor would enlighten us.

    eta; maybe it is the mooner.

    In Star Wars, it's "Move along folks. Nothing to see here." I just keep reminding myself of Josh turning white as a sheet and what that means.

    Another one of Susan's neighbors, April Lipsey, told Examiner Tuesdsay, "I went by Susan's house today and almost all of the decorations are gone. I noticed one of Susan's ribbons in the gutter."

    The rest are probably in the trash.

    According to this quote, Kiirsti Hellewell implies that the new renters DO know Susan.

    Over two months later, here we go again with the CNN statements of hope that Susan is alive and might want to return to her house.

    Then why is no one on TV begging the kidnappers to return her -- NOT Kiirsti - NOT the Cox family -- NO ONE ?

    This makes absolutely no sense at all!

    <<snip>>

    News that the home was rented has been met with mixed feelings. “I know they (the tenants) care about Susan a great deal and they are anxious not to let her home go back to the bank or anything.”

    Friends and family of Susan Powell have not given up hope that she will be found alive, which is why Hellewell is not angry about Mr. Powell’s decision. “If she is ever found she may want to come home one day,” she said. “So even though I don’t agree with the people moving in, I’m not going to hold it against them.”

    I'm sorry but these people are delusional. There is zero evidence that she was kidnapped or walked-out and no word from her or her alleged kidnappers for 2 months. The renters are only helping Josh at this point. The children could be cared-for by the Coxes, so Josh's financial situation is no longer relevant to them. In fact if Josh is insolvent it increases the chances that the Coxes could obtain custody.

    BBM. Exactly! I just don't understand the desire to enable. You either are OK with consequences, or not. We need to remember one thing--this is a shockingly disgusting situation. This "husband" refuses to cooperate with police in any way and acts like his wife never existed. I would so prefer it if the dear friends of the missing wife and mother banded together and quietly and politely declined to assist the "husband" with meals, packing, cleaning, moving, repairing the basement, and now, paying the mortgage.

    I don't understand it and it feels bad. If it were a strategy designed to let LE have better access, it could still backfire on POI. I'm still hoping for that and that this isn't the straight out enabling that it looks like.

    It seems like f&f still haven't moved beyond the initial shock and denial about Susan. Two months is a long time for staying on the fence and helping Josh. Without the anger, there's a surreal quality to the whole thing.

    Gin, thanks
    You said it all. Many of us agree with you..so so sad. It's as if she never existed....truthfully, it brings me to tears just thinking about it. . I am a teacher and I can tell you the kids need help or they are going to be very messed up. Afterall, it's their mother who is missing; someone they loved very much.

    One has to wonder what the genuine motivations behind these "enablers" actions are! Since it appears the majority, if not all of them, are Christians (Mormons), is their willingness to enable based on their Christian beliefs?

    Or, were they helping because of a chance to appear in news coverage of the particular events? And, who brings their children to help a man like JP move? Do we love everyone no matter what they have done? Or, do we let them fend for themselves so they suffer consequences for their actions?

    Since I've never been put into the position as those who have volunteered to assist JP since Susan's disappearance, I do not know what I would do if I were called upon to assist a fellow church member in the same position. (I would think it was a matter of people convincing others to help and, depending on who was involved, I might help if they were convincing enough, especially if they made me feel that refusing to help would be an unChristlike thing to do.) However, I highly doubt I would want to be near such a man as JP and that I would have scolded the person calling me for even considering helping a potential murderer!

    Yes, being "nice" to JP enables people to spend time with him during which they can learn potentially valuable information to give to the police. However, if that was the true motivation, is that a sin?

    Is it wrong to PRETEND to be JP's friend when a person really despises him? With the support system JP has, no wonder he is able to accomplish so much in such a short amount of time.

    Shame on the people who rented the house! When is JP going to have to start suffering consequences for his despicable behavior?
