Josh Powell Explosion

February 5, 2012 by staff 

Josh Powell Explosion, An explosion and fire at the home of Josh Powell has killed two children and an adult male believed to be Powell and his two young sons, officials say.

The explosion shook the normally quiet cul-de-sac neighborhood at about 12:30 p.m. Sunday, and flames roared through the home near the intersection of 182nd Street and 84th Avenue.

Firefighters rushed to the scene after receiving multiple frantic 911 calls, where they found two young victims and an adult male victim.

Graham Deputy Chief Gary Franz said it’s believed that the victims are Josh Powell and his two young sons.

Powell’s wife Susan disappeared in December 2009 under suspicious circumstances while the couple was living in Utah, and he lost custody of his two sons last year.

Franz said a case worker had just dropped off Powell’s sons at the home Sunday afternoon for a supervised visit. Powell then shut the door on the caseworker and locked it.

The case worker reported smelling gas fumes, and suddenly an explosion ripped through the home.

The sudden and tragic development was the latest in a dizzying series of twists in the case of missing mom Susan Powell.

Just last week a Pierce County judge had ruled that Powell’s two young sons must remain in the custody of Susan Powell’s parents.
