I thought I’d show y’all this blog post written by Tad DiBiase, who’s prosecuted several murder-without-a-body cases and has an excellent website devoted to the subject. He thinks it would have been relatively easy to make a case against Josh Powell for Susan‘s murder.
There have been many cases successfully prosecuted with less evidence than this. While I am typically loathe to criticize without knowing all the facts, in this day and age, this reluctance to arrest simply because there isn’t a body is foolish, timid and here, ultimately deadly as Powell’s children might still be alive if Josh had been arrested when this evidence was uncovered. Sad.

I think he’s right. But of course, Monday morning quarterbacking is easy to do. We can only speculate what might have been.
