Susan Powell's Dad-in-Law Took Naked Photos of Young Girls: Police


In a related court hearing also held today, a judge issued a permanent injunction forbidding Josh and Steven Powell from publishing any material from Susan's journals, according to KOMO-TV. The judge ordered them to return or destroy any journals already published.

The Powells threatened to publish the material on a website earlier this month to prove that she was mentally unstable and could have run away with another man. Susan Powell's father, Chuck Cox, went to court to block the release of the diaries, which were written when Susan was a teen.

Following the raid on their home, both Josh Powell and his father Steve spoke to ABC News about the journals and about Steve Powell's relationship with Susan.

Steve Powell claimed that he and his daughter-in-law had a relationship that was "beyond the pale, You know, father-in-law, daughter-in-law, flirting, maybe some sexual touching or whatever."

Steve Powell said that had started falling love with Susan and that the feelings were mutual.

"Really, I'm 30 years older than she is," he said. "I said, well Josh, it was Susan that came onto me. As he thought about it, and the next few months he started watching Susan more carefully, it became clear that that's how she interacted with the opposite sex."

Josh Powell denied any type of sexual relationship between his father and his wife, but admitted that his wife was a very sexual person.

Chuck Cox said Steve Powell's accusations were untrue.

"That's completely false, and it's very surprising that Steve Powell would come out with this type of accusation," he said.
