Josh Powell, Husband of Missing Utah Woman, Susan Powell, Denies Knowledge of Any Wrongdoing

Josh Powell, the husband of a missing Utah woman, is the subject of a child pornography and voyeurism investigation that has already ensnared his father, a lawyer for the Washington state attorney general said Tuesday.

Josh Powell is attempting to regain custody of his sons, ages 4 and 6, after they were temporarily placed under the care of their maternal grandparents Chuck and Judy Cox.

Jailed Grandfather
Josh Powell’s father, Steve Powell, pleaded not guilty to child pornography and voyeurism charges in court last Friday and was remanded in custody awaiting trial. Some of the voyeurism photos were images of the boys’ missing mother, Susan Powell.

Susan Powell has been missing since December 7, 2009, when Josh Powell said he left home in West Valley City, Utah, for a camping trip in freezing conditions with his two sons, then age 2 and 4. Josh Powell has been the only known person of interest in the case, but he has not been arrested or charged.
