  1. First, this was no accident. Eric Mclean appears to be nothing more than a coward. You mean to tell me that all this abuse went on and he stood by and allowed it. If he allowed this, then why didnt he allow the little old wife to carry on her affair???? The family , now, comes forward,to make claims that she was a bad person. they are no better than him. Its now,, only after hes been charged with murder, do they step forward with claims of abuse. They have been silent up to that point.Not very good grandparents. Men work harder to give their kids more. This guy didnt do it. If she was a wiskey drinkin drunk, how does one even earn a degree.?? I guess the next story will be that he went to class with her.!!!!!!!!!!! Now, he tries to play out the drama on tv. Honey, save it for the courtroom.

  2. Eric Mclean (now) claims that abuse was going on, Sounds like an excuse to kill someone. Why did he kill Powell then. He says the wife did it!!!!! And his family says abuse went on , WELL<<< you mean that they, As concerned, loving GRANDPARENTS didnt do a thing!!! Not very concerned to me!!!!!!Talk about abuse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The kids were in school during the day, he worked at nite.

  3. I get this sick feeling, just reading accounts of this murder, that Mr. Powells life was cut short, was denied, and was a cruel act of punishment. Someone really served up a cold plate of revenge.

  4. why did the “smart woman” who called herself a teacher even seduce this student? why didn’t she stop this affair before it started??she gets off..hubby faces life..
    i think mclean did the same thing i would have done also..
    this biological mother can’t even put on a good act on stand..trying to act
    his adopted mother didn’t know much more than the bio mother..
    no wonder the “boy” was looking for a mother figure..
    why isn’t the wife there to show her face??is she ashamed?? she should’s her fault..

    note from blog owner

    Are you saying that Eric was somehow mentally unable to make decisions for himself? It seems to me that he was an adult and could make his own decisions. Yes, Erin needs to be held accountable too, but please do not try to make Eric look like some innocent man who could not help himself. You are forgetting that Eric knew about this for quite a while. This was not something he came home and discovered and then killed Sean. That is different. For 2 weeks he spent time with Sean. He knew exactly what he was doing.

  5. I feel very hurt for these children. I think that Powell would not be dead, if he would not have been adulterous with a married woman. Erin and Eric both should loose all Parental rights to the children. I just pray that these kids will be able to emotionally cope with what has happened to them. Regardless, the children will be wrecked for life, and will carry deep emotional scars with them. It is a shame that the the children will have to live with thier parents sins. I will pray for these precious babies.
