Psychologist reveals new details about Josh Powell
By 97.3 KIRO FM Staff report May 28, 2012

A new documentary on E! Network called "A Family Tragedy: The Powells", features the first interviews with the psychologist who worked with Josh Powell. It paints an even darker picture of Powell, who died earlier this year when he set his house on fire after killing both his young sons.

Forensic psychologist Dr. James Manley, who works for the state of Washington, says in the documentary that investigators found computer-generated videos and photos that show adults having sex with children.

"And there was [sic] about fifteen images that I found the most disturbing - and they were very lifelike - computerized drawings of adults and children having sex in various ways," Dr. Manley tells Laura Ling in the documentary.

The images prompted Dr. Manley to recommend a psycho- sexual evaluation. He says the pornography wasn't a good sign for a parenting situation....

Relatives were also fighting to keep custody of Powell's two kids, fearing that Powell had been involved in the high-profile disappearance of his wife, Susan Cox Powell. It is unclear whether or not they were aware of the pornography.

The documentary will air for the first time on "E! Investigates" May 29 at 8:00 p.m.

Child Pornography in France, Belgium and the Netherlands
By James R. Marsh on May 29, 2012

Here is a recent documentary on child pornography in France, Belgium and the Netherlands by French journalist Karl Zéro. The report focuses on the Marc Dutroux affair which was widely reported in the international press in 2004.

An excellent in-depth exposé of the European perspective on child pornography and child exploitation with a focus the seeming inability and unwillingness of France to deal with this problem.

In French with English subtitles. Well worth the time and effort to watch the entire program.
