(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.

Tragic for the kids, but this is one family line you don't want persevering. Hopefully the father will follow their lead.

I'd probably done the same thing much, much sooner, if I had a psychotic-babies killer-wife murderer brother like Josh Powell and a psychotic perverted dad like Steve Powell. Wonder what ever happened to their mother, she never was mentioned. Did she die of natural causes, is she missing or was she murdered by her husband Steve Powell? Rest in Peace Michael Powell

Good. That gene pool is being drained which is a benefit to society. We don't need these people breeding and spreading their stupidity. Liberals, please read this story and follow in his footsteps.
