As difficult as it may be to fathom such a thing, Josh Powell (and his father) have a website using Susan Cox' name which posted what follows below. Statement analysis is in bold type with Powell' writing in plain text.
We hope to post a series of analysis of articles posted by Powell.
We won't link directly to the website in respect to the Cox family.
Also out of respect to the victim, Susan will be referred to with the Cox name.
Previous analysis shows:
Josh Powell deceptive about the disappearance of Susan
Josh Powell's father, appears to also withhold information that was likely given to him by his son. The father's choice of language in the previous analysis shows a need to bully and control and it is in this atmosphere that Josh Powell's insecurity and violence were nurtured.
We will be posting various articles from the web site along with statement analysis.
Note that the posting are offensive and demeaning to Susan and her family. This was originally posted in November. It is in plain text with analysis following in bold type.
Susan, we love you and miss you!
Again: a caution as what follows is disturbing.Note the present tense address to Susan Powell, who police believe is deceased. This is a thinly veiled attempt to portray Susan Cox as having run away from her husband, Josh Powell, who has thwarted all attempts by police to learn what became of her. Our previous analysis showed deception by Josh Powell, and that the night of his "midnight camping", he not only murdered his wife, but took steps to ensure that Susan's body would not be found by likely setting up a scenario in which animals would devour the corpse (note the wording he used in previous analysis which included "meat").
Susan Powell, missing December 7, 2009.
Susan Powell went missing in West Valley City, Utah on December 7, 2009. It has been one year since she left and SusanPowell.org is now changing its focus to begin responding to the rumors surrounding Susan Powell and other individuals. The ongoing efforts to protect the children will remain paramount as Susan Powell's family corrects the record.
Note the inclusion of "left" versus the original "went missing". This is an indication that the author (Powell) is withholding information regarding the disappearance. "Went missing" denotes mystery, but "left" denotes voluntary leaving; note that this is contradictory in the opening statement indicating deception.
Correcting the record
note "the" record; not "a" record. We do not know what record is referred to because the subject does not identify it and would not have access to police files. This suggests that what media has reported, including the midnight "camping" trip Powell used as a cover is credible as it is not just "a" record, but "the" record; howbeit, in Powells' mind, in need of correction.
SusanPowell.org remains the official source for information about Susan Powell and the family she loves. Susan Powell's family (the Powells) started SusanPowell.org as an effort to contact Susan and share some happy moments that were meant to be positive and uplifting. We have not responded directly to negative and defamatory comments until now because Josh and the rest of us expected Susan to return quickly and Josh didn't want to drive wedges between the Coxes (in-laws) and Josh's own family. Josh remains sympathetic toward them in spite of their total lack of sympathy toward him. All of us are sympathetic to the people who miss Susan as we do.
Note the need to declare that this website is the "official" source of information regarding Susan. This need to declare, within itself, shows its own weakness. Always note pronouns and articles in Statement Analysis. Note here that they say "the" family she loves; rather than another family (Cox). This is equivalent to a domestic homicide statement where the police receive the statement in which the perpetrator describes his day: "I woke up, said 'good morning' to the wife..". The inclusion of "good morning" in Statement Analysis indicates a bad relationship.
Since happily married couples do greet each other in the morning, it is only those of a bad relationship that feel the need to make such a statement.
Here, by stating that they are "the" family she loved, they indicate that poor relationship that existed between the Powell family and Susan, the victim. Not only did Josh Powell victimize Susan Cox on the night of the murder, he and his father have continued to victimize Susan and her family, with their verbal assaults on her character and upon her family. This is a verbal indication that they had a bad relationship with Susan.
Note the need to identify, by name, "the" family she loves. Note also the name used, "Susan Powell". The inclusion of the last name is formal and unpected in personal, close and loving relationships. It is another indication of the tension and distance between Susan and the Powell family. The opening paragraph also shows Josh Powell's father's fingerprints: the need to control. Here, it is the need to control not only information, but affections. This is an essential element found within violent families: a strong, central figure who controls what others think and feel, and when threatened with "rebellion", violence can be the result.
Note "directly" meaning that they have responded "indirectly" to negative.
Note also a common theme on the website: a declared presentation of positive, happy moments, in respect for the "children"; yet all happy moments have been removed from the web site.
The deception flows from paragraph to paragraph, and article to article, which will be seen in future analysis.
"total lack" shows sensitivity. This is explained by viewing the reaction of the Cox family early in the investigation: they gave Josh the benefit of the doubt and needed to be convinced by police that he refused to assist in the investigation.
note also "the people who are..." excludes others.
Unfortunately, the more we published on SusanPowell.org with nothing but love and uplifting comments, the nastier the Cox "Friends and Family" became toward Josh, Josh's supporters, this web site, and the children.
Order shows priority. What is the priority of the Powells?
this web site
This is expected from a family who deprived the children of their mother. It also shows the narcissistic difficulty between Josh and his father; as both compete for status of number one in life.
Individuals professing support for the Cox "Friends and Family" continually belittle and silence anyone hinting of support or even neutrality toward Josh.
Notice "individuals" is unspecified and that they silence anyone "hinting" of support. This is a revelation that those who support Josh can only "hint" at it, since they are unable to defend him. This shows that the Powells recognize the lack of ability that any might have to support Josh.
To this date, fully a year later, the Cox "Friends and Family" supporters still behave this way, even shouting down those who raise legitimate questions and doubts about Susan and her parents.
Note "shouting" on the Facebook page; which is print; not vocal; revealing the high level of defensiveness on the part of the Powells.
The situation is not fair to anyone and we recognize this fact. Josh has grieved for the wife he loves, while the Coxes and their supporters continue to ridicule his suffering and that of everyone around him.
Note the word "grieving" which is something done at a death. Powell stated that he constructed this web site to communicate directly to Susan. Here we see the deception as they acknowledge she is deceased, even while attempting to portray her as alive.
Note also that in Josh' "grieving", he has refused to speak to police.
For many months, Josh tried to forgive them - even as they set him up as their straw man. We remained silent in the public media to allow future healing of Josh's relationships with the Coxes and to allow the investigation to proceed unhindered. At this point, we recognize that we cannot remain silent forever in the face of rumors and lies being spread by individuals associated with the Cox "Friends and Family".
Note the pronoun (and noun) change from Josh to we. This is indicative of deception. "Tried" is past tense, meaning failed. Note that when this was posted, the family had gone public with their ridicule of Susan and her family, including portraying her as sexually immoral and financially driven.
In prior analysis, we saw that the projection indicated that Josh Powell was likely both sexually dysfunctional and financially broke.
False claims about Josh and Susan Powell
note that false claims were made about both.
Since December 2009 the Cox "Friends and Family" and Chuck Cox himself have repeatedly made claims intended to portray Josh as an all-around bad guy with absolutely no redeeming qualities.
In the first days of the investigation, Chuck Cox refused to criticize Josh Powell, even in the face of circumstantial evidence.
Even though the media has been one sided and highly sensationalized,
note "highly" is not completely.
the Coxes' extreme position has led many people to question the credibility of people in the Cox "Friends and Family" group. Every claim made against Josh comes with no witnesses, no evidence, and many contradictions in their own statements. Their claims are simply untrue.
Note that their position is "extreme" but not wrong; note that claims are not identified, but the Powells do not say that Josh didn't kill Susan, even though he grieves for her. They do not say that he had nothing to do with her disappearance.
The truth cannot be hidden forever.
This is the hope of the Cox family
Many of their accusations about what they call "strange" behavior in Josh actually describe natural human individuality and even necessary responses to the Coxes' own actions. Further, with the exception of Chuck and Judy Cox, every person making such claims has had absolutely no contact with Josh's family after January 2010. Most of them had limited to no relationship prior to that.
Note that "many" accusations; not all. His strange behavior is confirmed by the Powells.
Note also the admission of the bad relationship with the word "prior" identifying time. Note the inclusion of the word "strange" as they acknowledge Josh' behavior.
The Coxes claim they have certain rights with Josh and his children, but from the beginning they have attempted to alienate Josh from everyone he has ever known. According to a Salt Lake Tribune article published on November 6, 2010, Chuck and Judy Cox even stated that they created a pseudonym for Susan Powell ("Susan Cox Powell") for the purpose of divorcing Susan from Josh because they say "their daughter would not want to remain married to Josh Powell if she knew how he has 'impeded' the investigation into her disappearance." In point of fact, the Coxes have actually impeded the investigation by attempting to silence alternative viewpoints, by hiding facts about Susan and their own family, and by grossly misleading people about Josh.
Note that to the narcissistic Powell, using a maiden name is a "pseudonym". This reveals the internal dictionary of Powell, again indicating a need to control or violence will ensue.
At the same time, the Coxes have constantly driven the idea that Susan is perfect in every way (in accordance with their own narrow viewpoint) and they have thus denied her humanity. Both Josh and Susan are multidimensional individuals with many qualities and characteristics. Both Josh and Susan are very misunderstood at this point because of the strange image the Cox "Friends and Family" have tried to portray surrounding the Coxes, Susan, Josh, and even the children.
It is likely that Susan was of such exceptional character and the Powells of such base character that the Powells were in awe of Susan and her family, which likely increased the penalty inducing envy that was not only in Josh, but in his father, as well. The contempt they held for Susan and her family comes out in this begrudging admiration of the Cox family and character; which is why he wrote that they "denied her humanity", indicating that God-like status that Susan appeared to have when measured against the bar set so low by the Powell family. It may also indicate the distance that the Powells have to the children, as the children may possess much of the Cox character.
Cyber-bullies on the Cox "Friends and Family" Facebook page
What the Cox "Friends and Family" supporters continually do is abusive. Some of their primary vehicles include Facebook and other social networking sites. Even if they desire to inflict abuse on an innocent person because of their own judgments, there is absolutely no justification for what they are doing to the children. Every time the children are mentioned, strangers associated with the Cox "Friends and Family" outright attack the children with claims that the children are psychologically disturbed and other defamations.
That Josh (or his father) could refer to him as the gender neutral "person" and not a "man" when taken with the other indicators (see prior analysis) show the sexual dysfunction that likely added to Josh' rage against the beautiful Susan Cox. Note the title includes "bully" within it.
Bullying means the use of strength against a weaker opponent for an end without necessity. Note that Susan, deceased, is utterly incapable of defending herself against attacks, which is the ultimate bullying by the family.
Yet, Susan's character, even while attacked by the bullying Powells, continues to shine as they inadvertently compliment her with the word "humanity" above.
Even if the Cox "Friends and Family" could stay focused, they cannot separate their abuse and cyber-bullying of Josh from its harmful effects on Susan and the children. The Coxes have acknowledged the destructive effects of their own actions on the children, and yet continue with their tactics. Their intention to destroy a loving father's emotional well-being with their rumors and lies is shameful and unproductive.
Note the admission that those who state that Josh killed Susan are, in fact, damaging him emotionally. This reveals the weakness of Josh (his insecurity caused him to rage against her righteousness) and his impotence caused his final act of overpowering Susan. Since it cannot impact Susan, we conclude deception; yet we see that impacting Susan is coupled with the children. This reveals that the pressure put on Josh is not only working, to wear him down, but it is not harming the children. The use of the word "destroy" indicates what is happening to Josh. The "tell tale heart" is likely beating loudly in his sleep
Some people claim that Josh has no right to respond to their accusations - some of which are the worst accusations possible. Cox "Friends and Family" supporters and the sensationalized media are shouting in a chorus that any response by us is just "Josh being mean" or Josh "trying to deflect law-enforcement attention from himself." Why? Because we have claimed that Susan is capable of doing things that the Coxes don't want to acknowledge to the world.
Note that the Powells defense is to attempt to slander Susan, but not to deny involvement in her disappearance. Even narcissists feel the stress of lying.
We understand this is hard for them, but not as hard as what they are doing to the husband who will always love Susan and to the children from their marriage. But what hurts us most is that we know their rhetoric is hurting Susan. Therefore, we do intend to respond to some things at this point. We also think it will help Susan understand what her parents, Chuck and Judy Cox, have refused to acknowledge or accept over the years.
Note grieving and 'hurting' Susan is incompatible; and since hurting Susan and the children is tied together, the deception is for both.
Protecting Susan and the children
Susan needs help. At this point, Susan Powell's family believes very strongly that the ongoing rhetoric of the Cox "Friends and Family" is having a tragic effect on Susan's emotional well-being as well as Josh's. Susan knows that she cannot return without having people of the same mentality as the Cox "Friends and Family" turn on her. As difficult as it has been for Josh to cope with this, we believe that in Susan's emotional state she will not be able to face it.
Note that "Susan Powell's family" continues to use the formal full name. As difficult as it may be for the Cox family to read the statement by Powell, they can see both the deception and the inadvertent compliments, and know that the public can also see the deception.
We are re-evaluating the best ways to protect the children in light of our family's total lack of privacy. We wish we could share happy family moments with Susan on SusanPowell.org without fear of the vocal minority encouraging predatory behavior against the children. However, SusanPowell.org will not be publishing private family moments at this time. Instead, SusanPowell.org will continue provide factual information.
Why do they need to "fear" if it is only a "vocal minority"? This is the bane of minimizing language; it raises more questions than it gives answers. The same application is for the children: "predatory behavior" being undefined, indicating deception. Note also the continued confession of deception:
Rather than post "happy family moments", they will, instead, only post "factual information" which confesses that "happy family moments" is fictional information.
Words betray the truth that deceptive people wish to hide.
Here, the attempt at persausion backfires and reveals more about Powell (and his father) than they would have likely wanted revealed.
The small, impotent, insecure, inadequate and broke bully picks his fight against the deceased because it is the only way he can overcome her goodness. Even Powell's attempt to exploit the children does not suceed, but rather reveals, as did both Powells' castigation of Susan in a prior interview), that there is no level to which they will stoop in order to compensate for their collective deficiancies. If masculinity is the sacrifice of strength for the purpose of good, we can conclude both Powells to be void of its character.
Next, you will see the attack upon Josh' sister by Josh and the woman's own father.
