Do The Right Thing

16 February 2012 @ 14:12

As you may recall, several weeks ago, Josh Powell husband of Susan Powell and chief suspect in her disappearance and possible murder, murdered his two sons with an axe and killed himself by blowing up his rented house up in Tacoma, Washington.

His family, including his father Steven who is awaiting trial on child pornography charges, wanted him to be buried beside his sons.

Two sheriffs out there saw this as an outrage and took action.

From MSNBC, we learn [tip of the fedora to the Drudge Report]:

Two police officers in Washington state have bought burial plots next to Josh Powell’s boys in order to block family members from burying him next to them, according to a local media report.

"The bottom line is, Josh Powell will not be near those two boys," Pierce County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ed Troyer said in an interview with a Seattle-area radio program called the Ron and Don Show.

Josh Powell’s surviving relatives wanted to him buried at the same cemetery as the two sons he killed, the city manager in Puyallup said earlier Wednesday.

But that does not look like it is going to happen.

Troyer and Sheriff Paul Pastor used their personal money and funds from Crimestoppers Tacoma-Pierce County to buy plots that are on either side of the boys, according to a report on the radio station’s website that was confirmed by Troyer on Twitter….

Three cheers for Sheriffs Troyer and Pastor.
