Update: Susan Powell disappearance/Powell children murders *Autopsy showed children suffered ‘chop injuries’ from a hatchet*

Braden and Charlie Powell

I am even more in shock now, finding out the results of the autopsies on these two innocent boys. Josh Powell tried to kill his two sons with a hatchet before the house exploded. Can you imagine the terror these two innocent boys felt at the end of their young lives, knowing that their father, who should have loved and protected them, hurt them and caused their lives to end. My heart truly goes out to their family and friends. This new development could not be easy at all for them. Funerals for the boys is supposed to be sometime next week.

  1. I don’t know if this has been said before or not but after watching nancy grace lastnight. I was wondering if he killed his wife because she was going to turn her sicko father in law in for spying on her and etc. Then this man goes and kills his kids because they were talking to much. Why not just kill yourself? Why take the kids with you? He already took so much from them, there mom. This is just so sad,.heartbreaking.

    • Brandy,

      Actually, that is what I believe. I believe that Susan was going to turn in her father-in-law. I also wonder if she came across any of the child porn. I think no matter what she threatened about Josh or Steve Powell would anger Josh and that is when everything started. Josh was a control freak, so that is probably part of the reason he did this to those innocent children. “If I can’t have them, no one else can either”.

      • Awful just awful. And not only blow them up but to take a weapon to them too? I think blowing up the place would have done the job,jeesh. I sure hope they aren’t waked together, meaning sons n father. NO ONE would want to attend the service to see that sicko. Well maybe his own family. Um is it true that the father in law knows where susan is?

  2. My is in so much pain for these two innocent,and beautiful boys.As a mom I cant imagine ahuman doing such a Evil thing.
