Sheriff Unhappy With Dispatcher In Children’s Death

POWELL FIRE AND MURDER
Peter Haley, The News Tribune, AP

SEATTLE (AP) — Washington state authorities say they’re not happy with the performance of a 911 dispatcher during last weekend’s murder-suicide involving the husband of a missing Utah woman.

Pierce County Sheriff’s Detective Ed Troyer tells The Associated Press that when a social worker called to report that Josh Powell had taken his two young sons into his home during what was supposed to be a supervised visit, the dispatcher left her with the impression that no help was immediately on the way.

Troyer says that was bad etiquette, but he does not believe it resulted in any unnecessary delays.
