Josh Powell's Final Message: 'I Am Not Able to Live Without My Sons'

By JIM VOJTECH, ABBIE BOUDREAU, ERIN C. KEOHANE and KEVIN DOLAK | Good Morning America 4 hours ago

Josh Powell's Final Message: 'I Am Not Able to Live Without My Sons' (ABC News)

As investigators pore over the gutted Washington state home of Josh Powell for evidence explaining how and why he murdered his two sons and killed himself in a gas explosion, ABC News has exclusively obtained what is believed to be his final words to his loved ones.

Powell left a voicemail for his family just 20 minutes before attacking his two young boys Braden, 5, and Charles, 7, with a hatchet(!!!) and igniting a gas leak that blew up his house on Sunday afternoon.

"I am not able to live without my sons, and I'm not able to go on anymore. I'm sorry to everyone I've hurt. Goodbye," the voicemail message said.

...

"The people who know me know that I'm a good dad," Powell told "GMA" in August. "I work hard. I put my sons first. I was a good
husband. I took care of my family."

I wonder if DATELINE, 48 HOURS, or some simlar program is doing an episode on this.

I always knew he'd killed his wife. I guess a lot of other people did too.

2. I agree. I think in some way people like this think of the children as an extension of themselves.



I guess the social worker is fortunate he didn't let her in the house.


If anyone hears of DATELINE, or some other show, doing an episode on this, please post.
