Update: This just makes our stomach turns….it gets sicker, and sicker. Prior to the children being killed, they were starting to reveal more about the night their mother went missing and said that “Mommy was in the trunk”.

Did Josh Powell realize his game was up?

What other explanation can be given for his decision to torch his house, thus killing himself and his two sons.

The person of interest in the Dec. 6, 2009 disappearance of his wife Susan, killed himself and the couple’s two young sons on Sunday in a planned, intentional explosion, and it today emerged that the children were beginning  to ‘verbalize’.

According to the The Seattle Times, a case worker delivered the boys to Powell’s house Sunday near Tacoma, Wash., when Powell pushed the worker out of the house. Moments later, there was an explosion. Officials have recovered three bodies from the house that they believe are Josh Powell and his sons Charlie, 7, and Braden, 5.

The Associated Press reports that Powell’s lawyer in his custody case, Jeffrey Bassett, received a three-word email from his client minutes before the explosion. It said, “I’m sorry, goodbye.”

This is just so wrong, on so many levels, and our question always is the same in these situations: Why punish innocent children and rob them of their lives?
