Docs: Josh Powell took pictures of strangers’ legs



SEATTLE (AP) — Documents released Friday show that Josh Powell told social workers in Washington he liked to take pictures of strangers’ legs in public places.

The admission came one day after his father was arrested on voyeurism charges as law enforcement officials put more pressure on Powell regarding the 2009 disappearance of his wife in Utah.

The Social Services files, released under state public records laws, say Powell seemed to understand the laws around taking voyeur pictures. Powell said that he didn’t take pictures of people’s faces.

Powell was a suspect in the 2009 disappearance of Susan Powell from their West Valley City, Utah, home. He killed himself and his two sons in a house fire in February.
