    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Documents show that investigators in Washington recovered hundreds of images of disturbing, sexualized cartoon images from Josh Powell's computer.

    Social Services files released under state public records laws Friday say many of the images included sexual depictions of popular cartoons, including child-focused characters such as Rugrats, Dennis the Mennis and SpongeBob SquarePants. Another 15 images showed 3-D depictions of sex involving parents and their children.

    A psychologist who initially suggested that Powell continue his supervised visits then declared that the images were of "great concern." She suggested a new evaluation of Powell, which apparently didn't take place before he killed himself and his two sons in a house fire two weeks ago.

    Powell was a suspect in the 2009 disappearance of his wife from their West Valley City, Utah, home.
