Josh Powell left voicemail, apology for family

From The Associated Press:

Before setting his house on fire and killing himself and his two sons, Josh Powell left a voicemail for his family, saying he couldn’t live without the boys and didn’t want to go on.

ABC News obtained what it says was a voicemail Powell left for his family. In the recording played Tuesday on “Good Morning America” Powell also said he was calling to say goodbye and apologize.

“I’m sorry to everyone I’ve hurt,” he is heard saying. “Goodbye.”

Powell, the husband of missing Susan Powell, died along with his children Sunday. An autopsy showed the children also suffered hatchet wounds to their necks. He was a person of interest in his wife’s 2009 disappearance.
