Terrible, just terrible story. I'm still waiting to see what she gets in the way of punishment here on earth for her part of this horrible event. Although I know she'll be punished by God, it seems to me there is something she deserves here on earth too.

Why is Erin not charged with rape. She should of been charged, and need her children taken from her. She is the guilty of killing Sean, prevoking her husband. She is a sick sick person. Raising small children.
HELL IS WAITING FOR HER

What Sean did was bad! Apparently it didnt occur to him that having an affair with someone else's wife is a big No No. i do not feel remorse for his death. I believe what the husband of that stupid cow of a teacher did was perfectly understanding. People think that it is ok for a woman teacher to have sex with her student but its not ok for a male teacher to do so. how unfair is that?! Sean didnt think he could get away with what he did..did he?? i just regret that whore didnt die too.

THE FIRST PERSON TO POST besides Scarlett IS AN IDIOT! Why would you disrespect a parents choice of raising their kids. Smoking is leagal when your 18 you retard.

It is hard to be quiet, but the investigation is on-going and we are put in a situation where we feel the facts should come out during the hearing with the jury members. If information is released prior to the hearing, the defense attorney could better prepare his client. The defense attorney wants to get his client off with reasonable doubt at any cost so we do not want to assist. We want justice.

The preliminary hearing can be purchased for around $7.00 from the court house along with the search warrants for the house and car. In the tape you will find Sean stating to Eric, “I’ll go wait or sit out in the car” (I can’t remember which one right now) and Eric replied, “That’s cool”. Detective Boatman testified Eric’s statement given that no other words or contact was made prior to the shooting after Sean left the house so Eric shot Sean with a high-powered rifle with a seven pound trigger without any confrontation. Was it with intent, malice, and in cold-blood? We believe yes. As parents, we feel for Eric’s parents. To worry and protect your son is sanity, but I wish they would not disrespect Sean or our family. No matter how you spin this – everyone has lost and Eric should take responsibility for his actions.

Let me get this straight -- he was in high school yet he was allowed to stay out until 3 am? He was allowed to spend the night with someone? He was allowed to smoke? Seems to me that all of this was just asking for trouble. What kind of parents allow their child to do all this?

Statement by Scarlett Powell:

Sean’s family members are hoping you can understand; to us this is not a story but our little boy that we had to lay to rest and release into God’s care. Words are hard to speak regarding the loss we feel for our son, Sean. The moment Sean walked into our home, he held our attention -- like every room he ever entered. Sean was charming, handsome, athletic, smart, and one of a kind. He struggled to overcome his pain from his early childhood. Since we were his fifth foster home at the tender age of six, he had been displaced many times in his short life. We hoped to assist him to feel wanted and loved which Sean desperately needed, but mostly we wanted to keep him safe and out of harm’s way.

On March 10, 2007, shortly after 5:00 pm, my husband and I were laughing and rejoicing the victory of the battles in raising all our children, and we could see all our children on the right page, not perfect but happy and proud they were making the right choices for themselves. Then the events changed; Sean came home from work around 7:30 pm and took a shower to go out with his girlfriend Erin Myers – a part-time student at Pellissippi State who we believed to be around twenty years old and who worked so much that Sean had to hook-up with her when he could. Around 8:15 pm, Sean who was standing in the living room speaking with his father. I remember looking at Sean, who was wearing a pair of khaki shorts and a red tee-shirt, while I had on a black tee-shirt with the same color and style of shorts which I thought to myself “That’s pretty cool – we have on similar outfits”. Sean asked his dad if he had any cash because he would get paid on Monday and his dad said, “Well honey, all I have is three dollars.” Sean ran into the kitchen and wrote down the amount and signed his name.

I owe Dad $3
Sean Powell

Then, I jumped up and said I would look for some cash in my pocketbook and found $5 and handed it to Sean. Sean said he would write it down. I stated, “You do not have to do that.” Sean stated, “I want to do it.”

+ Mom $5

I told Sean that I appreciated that and said, “I love you and don’t forget to call me if you are late and I will stay up waiting for you – 1, 2, or even 3 am.” “Call me if you plan to stay the night with someone.” I said, “Sean – the rules aren’t that bad, are they?” He replied, “No Mom – they are pretty easy, I love you too”.

It was our last conversation on earth together, and the knowledge of his clothing was the only way I could identify Sean’s body. Now we go to Sean’s grave and throw down a blanket to be close to him. We cannot see his face or hold his hands, but we know he’s looking down on us and protecting us. I know Sean wishes he heard my words to lock his car door even when he was sitting out in his car listening to the radio and smoking a cig, but yesterday is dead and we can not go back and change things. Tomorrow is unknown and today is the only chance we have to make a choice. It can be a good one or a bad one, but either way we have to deal with the consequences.

Now we know Erin Myers and Mrs. Mclean, Sean’s English Intern teacher, is the same person. We listen to the news regarding a love-triangle, but how can anyone put love into this situation? Love does not put someone in harm’s way. We are asking people to step forward with any information regarding this relationship which to me has not been proven sexual but only manipulative, please contact the local Knoxville Police Department.

We have more information, but honestly; we want to grieve and reflect on Sean’s life. We want to remember all the smiles and laughter and only the good things Sean experienced in his short life. We wake up each day telling ourselves that we are not God or the Judge so we do not have the authority to set the punishment but in that wisdom knowing we do not have the burden of having to forgive but only accept that God’s plans are greater than ours.

Sad...and tragic!

    "How Much Money Are you Making By Blogging" question that I’m sure most of you are thinking. I will not get into specifics, but I will say that my car payment (60 month loan) is covered by the amount of income I generate from all of my blogs. And the good news is that each year that income continues to go up. Click here to read the rest of the story.
