(Newser) – You probably thought the story of the Powell family couldn't get any more screwed up or depressing, but you'd be wrong. About a year after Josh Powell (a suspect in wife Susan's 2009 disappearance) blew up his home while he and his two sons were still inside, his brother Michael has jumped off a Minneapolis parking garage to his death, a friend of the family tells Fox News. In December, the AP reported that some 4,500 photos (some sexually suggestive) seized from dad Steve Powell's home show the missing mom, apparently unaware that someone is taking her picture.
