(CBS) PUYALLUP, Wash. – New information about Josh Powell’s past came to light last week when the Salt Lake Tribune newspaper reported that documents from Powell’s parents’ divorce two decades ago portray the then-16-year-old as seriously troubled.

According to the Tribune, the documents state that a teenage Powell had tried to commit suicide, threatened his mother with a butcher knife, and killed pet gerbils.

Powell and his two sons were found dead in his home on Feb. 5. Powell reportedly attacked the boys with a hatchet then set the home on fire.

Powell had been a suspect in the disappearance of his wife, Susan, who has been missing since December 2009.

On Friday, police found a comforter stained with blood in a storage unit rented by Powell, reported CBS affiliate KIRO.
