GRAHAM, Wash. (AP) - Before killing himself and his two young sons in a deadly house fire, Josh Powell left a voicemail for family members saying he couldn't live without the boys and didn't want to go on anymore.

ABC News obtained what it says was a voicemail Powell left for his family members. In the recording played Tuesday on "Good Morning America" Powell also says he's calling to say goodbye, and that he's sorry to everyone he's hurt.

Powell, the husband of missing Utah woman Susan Powell, died along with his children Sunday in Washington. An autopsy showed the children also suffered hatchet wounds to their necks.

Josh Powell was a person of interest in his wife's disappearance.
