The contractor on the job, Greg Pelland of Pelland Enterprises, says he was told to remove every trace of the home, including the driveway.
Powell was the husband of Susan Cox Powell who went missing from their home in December 2009 in West Valley, Utah. He had moved back to Puyallup with his two young sons but lost custody after his father, Steven Powell, was arrested for investigation of voyeurism and child pornography.
A social worker brought 5-year-old Braden and 7-year-old Charlie to Josh Powell's home for a visit when he slammed the door in her face and set the fire.
