Josh Powell withdrew $7,000 cash from a South Hill bank branch Saturday, according to a search warrant affidavit filed in Pierce County Superior Court today.

A teller at the Bank of America branch at 176th and Meridian contacted sheriff’s detectives Sunday to notify them of the withdrawal, the affidavit states.

The teller did not ask Powell why he was making the withdrawal.

Detectives seized transaction records and photographs of Powell taken by bank security cameras, the affidavit states.

Powell killed his young sons, Charlie and Braden, about 24 hours later.

    As I predicted we NOW have more evidence coming in that notes several people had a watch and or knew of pending issues with Josh Powell.

    1)Wed. court hearing by Judge for psych exam
    2)Sat. withdrawal of cash SARs prompt or alert from teller to WHICH ASSIGNED PIERCE COUNTY DEPUTY? Who got the call at Pierce County about this withdrawal and who was the deputy assigned to the case?
    3)911 Call from family member before the impending fire…
    4)911 Call from DSHS contract worker to dispatch… then the dispatcher is rude, and challenging a 911 call as an EMERGENCY!!! (I have stories myself on this one…. calling 911 to be ignored before an incident with racing, and children hurt; typical PC LE personnel).
    5) Then call from attorney during the fire…..

    What other documents did Pierce County have that were not a RED FLAG to intervene sooner????


    More to come of this judicial mess.
