Washington State authorities can expect tough questions about whether more might have been done to protect a missing Utah woman's two children, who died along with their father after authorities say he intentionally set his home on fire Sunday.
Josh Powell was a person of interest in his wife's disappearance
-- Why was he allowed to meet with his sons at all? Why weren't more
The answers rest largely in that no concrete evidence has emerged publicly linking Josh Powell to Susan Powell's disappearance. Josh Powell had custody of the boys for nearly two years afterward, and it was only because his father -- with whom he and the boys lived -- was arrested in a voyeurism case last fall that the children were taken out of the home and placed with Susan's parents.
A Department of Social and Health Services spokeswoman says officials would have acted if they thought there was any chance Josh Powell might have harmed the children.
