7:07 am
homicide from the beginning, we could have moved quicker to obtain custody for these boys. >> reporter: the attorney for the parents, chuck and judy kox, said the custody battle was becoming too much. >> he was beginning to crack a bit under the pressure. >> reporter: he grew only more paranoid and desperate. he wanted custody of his sons. you believe they were starting to remember things? >> yeah. definitely. josh's denial that he would never hurt his wife, hurt his children, is a blatant lie. >> reporter: the cox family take solace in the knowledge they believe that the two little boys are now with their mother. as for josh powell, the cox family believes that when he decide to burn himself up in hellfire, it was an admission of guilt. >> now to josh powell's sister,

7:09 am
called 911. >> i'm terrified to drive over there. i'm afraid of seeing something i don't want to see. >> i just stopped in the street, looking at the shell of the house. it was gone. we know it was just empty, hol lee inside. >> reporter: why do you think your brother did this? why did he kill himself and his two young sons? >> it must have just felt that -- that there was only one way left for him to protect his sons from the pain. all the emotional and physical pain that they had been experiencing. >> reporter: but he didn't protect them. he killed them. >> i wish it had been differently. >> reporter: considering what we now know josh was capable of, do you think that he had a role in susan's disappearance? >> no.
7:10 am
i have never seen any indication from him or the boys that he had anything to do with it. and trust me, i -- i looked for it. hard. . >> reporter: what do you mean? >> i studied every word he said, every action he made. >> reporter: does an innocent man do this? >> i can't put myself in his mind. but i think -- he must have been just more heartbroken than i realized, than any of us realized. >> reporter: alina also said that josh expressed optimism for the future and he planned to continue fighting for custody of his children. which makes this all the more difficult to truly comprehend. robin? >> thank you. and chris cuomo will have much more on a special "20/20" tomorrow night, at 10:00, 9:00

7:32 am
murder of his wife, jane, found strangled in her suv two weeks ago. he said he had no reason to kill his wife. is there any nomotive you could have had? >> none. >> reporter: financial? >> we had a very good, open relationship. >> reporter: are you scared for the day the place may come for you? >> i'm frightened, to know that i might spend the rest of my life in jail for a crime i didn't commit is a very scary thing. >> reporter: he was joined by his daughter, jessica. do you believe there's a chance your father could be capable of murdering your mother? >> no, not at all. without a doubt in my mind. i know that he did not do it. there's no way. >> reporter: why are you so sure? how can you be? >> i know how my mom felt about
7:33 am
him. there was never any even hint towards violence. >> reporter: she says her father couldn't have killed her mother because, in a bizarre twist, bob's handyman has already confessed to the crime. >> did you kill jane bashara? did you kill her, joe? >> reporter: reporters chased after joe gentz on monday morning as he headed to court in a custody hearing for his young daughter. he claims he was forced to kill jane because bob held a gun to his head. >> did bob make you do it? >> reporter: do you believe joe gentz? >> i do believe he's the one that did it. he want td more money from me, he badgered me. i do believe he's capable of it. >> one of the stories he's telling is that you forced him to kill jane. >> i don't own a firearm. i absolutely had nothing to do with this. that is a sick assessment on his
7:34 am
part. it shows how deranged he is. >> reporter: bashara's attorney believed gentz showed up demanding to be paid for money he was owed. when jane answered the door, things got violent. but bob bashara's alleged double life, which was offlimits in our interview, continues to draw scrutiny. he's repeatedly denied having an fair with this woman. rachel gillette. is it all just lies? >> i'm not going to comment on that. it has nothing to do with the case. >> reporter: but bashara's toernt wasn't to quick to deny. are you willing to possibly admit now that he did have an affair. >> the term open xharnlg comes to mind. >> reporter: and jane was okay with that? >> and my belief is that it was an open marriage. >> reporter: if you're arrested, are you fighting this until the end? >> absolutely.
7:35 am
i did nothing wrong. i didn't commit murder. i didn't pay to have my wife killed. i'm going to see this through to the end. and i'm innocent. >> reporter: as for that reported human blood found in the grauarage, it's been sent f testing. bashara's attorney says it proves nothing about his client, it could have come from anywhere. he says he finds it fishy they didn't find the blood the first time they extensively searched this home two weeks ago. >> thank you, andrea. we bring in dan abrams. you have said from the beginning, if other people want to speak out for him, but for him to spreek out. he's not answering the question about the affair and his attorney says, open marriage. >> if you're going to come out and speak and your wife has been killed, you have to talk about your relationship with your wife. in particular if your own lawyer
7:36 am
is going to say, it was an open relationship. and you're unwilling to talk about what that means at all? that's a problem. the thing he's got working for him, his daughter and son seem to be willing to go out publicly and defend him. if i were him, and his lawyer, i would certainly have him stop talking. because, anything he says can be used against him at a later point. and b, he's got these two kids that are willing to say, we don't think he's responsible. that's powerful stuff. >> to the blood found where gentz said it would be, the garage. >> that's incredibly important. if the authorities can confirm at least gentz was there, that's significant. they've now got to put the pieces together to figure out what happened. i think it's interesting that bashara says he thinks it's fishy they found the blood there
7:37 am
now and didn't find it the first time. he's questioning the police work. i don't think that's a smart maneuver, you want them to arrest you? start questioning their work, which it sounds like bob bashara is doing. >> and the attorney says it looks like the police may be close to pressing charges. >> some what surprising for a lawyer to come out and say that they expect an arrest. i guess he's in contact with the authorities. >> so bizarre. how this is being handled. >> absolutely. >> thanks, dan. let's get back over to sam. the brutal winter on the other side of the atlantic. look at this one from croatia. all the lamp posts covered in ice. 90% of the danube river is frozen. four nations have had to stop shipping on the danube. that's like shutting down the mississippi river. this has been brutal in that
