No, I wouldn't hold my breath either.  ITA, he would die first, just like Josh.  I don't believe Steve Powell would willingly give any information.  But I keep hoping somehow he will slip up or somehow there will be even a tiny hint of a tip LE can use to find some answers.  JMHO

Wash. judge tosses child porn count against Steve Powell; voyeurism charges remain
Updated: Monday, May 7, 8:03 PM

TACOMA, Wash. — A judge dismissed a child pornography charge against Steve Powell, the father-in-law of missing Utah mother Susan Powell, as his trial began with jury selection Monday.

Pierce County Superior Court Judge Ronald Culpepper agreed with defense attorneys who argued that the crime of possessing child pornography requires that the depictions include sexually explicit behavior or that the defendant have some control over the behavior of the children photographed.

Steve Powell was accused of secretly recording more than 2,000 images of two young, neighbor girls in their home as they took baths and used the toilet.

Prosecutors argued that Washington lawmakers changed the child porn law in 2010 to make clear that such activity is illegal. The law defines “sexually explicit conduct” as the depiction of a minor’s genitalia, breast or buttocks for the purpose of sexual gratification of the viewer, and it specifies that the child does not need to be aware that he or she is participating in the conduct.

Prosecutors did not immediately say whether they would appeal. Attorney Anne Bremner, who represents the former neighbors, now 12 and 14, said the family was disappointed, and that the child porn count should have been left for the jury.

Will Steven Powell diaries obsessing over Susan be admitted in trial?
Judge dismisses child porn charge; he still faces 14 voyeurism charges
Published: Monday, May 7 2012 7:21 p.m. MDT

 ::snipping2::
Culpepper is expected to decide Tuesday whether prosecutors can use portions of Powell's diaries as evidence during the trial. They want to introduce eight passages from Steven Powell's diaries — which were seized last year from his Puyallup, Wash., home — as evidence. The dates of the journals range from 2003 to 2010.

"The vast majority of the writing is sexually graphic and obsessing over Susan Powell," deputy Pierce County attorney Bryce Nelson said, referring to Powell's Utah daughter-in-law who has been missing since 2009.

Prosecutors read samples of the diaries Monday, saying Steven Powell allegedly wrote: "Susan likes to be admired and I'm a voyeur," "I'm a voyeur and Susan is an exhibitionist," and "I've been going nuts and nearly out of control sexually my entire life."

Judge throws out child porn charge against Steven Powell
Posted on May 7, 2012 at 9:50 AM
Updated today at 6:03 PM

 ::snipping2::
A pool of 70 potential jurors was introduced to Powell inside a Pierce County courtroom. When asked whether any of them knew of Powell's case, a majority of them raised their hands. About a dozen of the potential jurors raised their hands a second time when asked if they had formed opinions about the case.
 
Four jurors were dismissed when they admitted they will not be able to be unbiased because of their opinions.
 
Judge Ronald Culpepper warned the pool against talking about the case with family members and friends, and especially against posting any information on Facebook or other social media outlets.
 
Potential jurors not dismissed will fill out questionnaires and return Tuesday to answer questions directly from attorneys. Opening statements could begin as early as Wednesday.

Powell faces 14 counts after judge dismisses porn charge

The Pierce County judge presiding over the trial of Steven Powell, father-in-law of missing Utah woman Susan Cox Powell, on Monday dismissed one of 15 counts filed by prosecutors.

A couple of jurors say they are honored to be called, overwhelmed at the case because of coverage, etc. All agree it's an important case.

Kevin McCarty ‏ @KevinKIRO
Prosecutor: How many of you walked in heard what case was, said, oh no? 1 juror, "I thought what are the chances I'd be called? Overwhelming

Kevin McCarty ‏ @KevinKIRO
Some jurors not excited to be called. One says, "after suffering through winter, I knew just as the weather got good..." laughter

Attorney for Cox family to receive police files in Susan Powell case
Records sought in preparation for “potential litigation” for civil redress.
First Published 4 hours ago • Updated 1 minute ago

 ::snipping2::
Bremner said Wednesday that Pierce County has agreed to give her all the documents she has requested following the voyeurism trial in Tacoma for Steven Powell, Susan’s father-in-law. The trial is expected to end next week.
 
Bremner said she is still waiting to hear from West Valley City. The city’s 10-day deadline to respond to Bremner’s request was by the end of Wednesday.
 
Bremner considers Pierce County’s response a major victory, she said. And she plans to share information in the files with the public.
 
"Unless there is some kind of prohibition that I’m given that is specific and well-founded, then I plan to [share the information with the public]," she said.
 
Bremner is seeking the documents on behalf of the Cox family for "potential litigation in which they may seek civil redress in connection with Susan’s disappearance on Dec. 6, 2009," her request stated.
 
Bremner said recently that although West Valley City Police Chief Thayle "Buzz" Nielsen told the Coxes in February that they could review files related to their daughter’s case, the family has not yet received any documents that give them insight into how West Valley City has handled the investigation.

Cox attorney wants all reports in Susan Powell case
Published: Thursday, May 10 2012 11:03 a.m. MDT

 ::snipping2::

TACOMA, Wash. — Attorney Anne Bremner wants West Valley police to release their records into the Susan Powell investigation to her. If they don't, she will consider filing a lawsuit.

In a letter dated April 26, Bremner filed public records requests of both the West Valley Police Department and the Pierce County Sheriff's Office in Washington for "complete copies of any and all investigative files concerning the disappearance of Susan Cox Powell." Both departments had 10 business days to respond.

Pierce County has agreed to hand over all of its police reports after Steven Powell's voyeurism trial has concluded, which is expected to be next week. As of Wednesday, West Valley police had not responded, Bremner said. Thursday marks the end of the 10-day period.
 ::snipping2::
Powell's trial will resume on Monday with witnesses from Utah, including members of the West Valley Police Department, expected to take the stand. Pierce County Superior Court Judge Ronald Culpepper has all but eliminated Susan Powell from the trial, making multiple rulings the keep her name out of the proceedings so the jury won't be prejudiced hearing the high-profile name of the missing Utah mother.

Circumstantial evidence against Steven Powell key, says former judge
May 13th, 2012 @ 3:42pm

Warning: Some content may be considered graphic to some readers.
 
TACOMA, Wash. — The opening two days of the Steven Powell trial proved to be quite eventful.
 
One of the charges against him was dismissed, any significant talk of Susan Powell was banned from the courtroom, and Susan's family felt extremely frustrated.
 
But based on the evidence that was presented in court during the trial's third day, at least one legal expert believes prosecutors are well on their way to getting a conviction.
 
"I think the facts are pretty heavily stacked in favor of the prosecution," University of Utah law professor and former federal judge Paul Cassell said. "It's a very tough case for the defense."
 ::snipping2::
Defense strategy
The defense strategy so far has been to raise doubt about who actually took the pictures of the young girls. No one actually saw Powell take the photographs. And no one has been able to say definitively that the images on the disc found in Powell's bedroom belonged to him.
 
"The prosecution certainly bears the burden of proving Steven Powell committed those acts. But that proof can be done circumstantially," Cassell said. "You don't need a fingerprint on the camera."
 ::snipping2::

The trial so far
During the first week of the trial, the single count of possession of child pornography against Powell was dismissed. Pierce County Superior Court Judge Ronald Culpepper ruled that the child porn statute in Washington did not apply in this case because Powell did nothing to influence what the young girls were doing. Their actions — taking baths, washing their hair, etc. — were independent of Powell's alleged photographing.
 
Culpepper also ruled that any talk of Powell's obsession with his daughter-in-law or pictures of Susan Powell — which were found in Steven Powell's home — were not relevant to the charges and could prejudice the jury because of the high-profile nature surrounding her disappearance and the actions of her husband, who killed himself and their two young boys.
 
That ruling included passages from Steven Powell's journals in which he talked about his obsession with Susan. Culpepper said while the passages were "strange" and "disturbing," they were not relevant to the current case.
 
Cassell believes it was a good move for the defense to get Susan Powell's name out of the trial.

The Coxes originally believed that the voyeurism charges against Steven Powell focused on Susan, but the case is specific to voyeuristic images of women and girls in his neighborhood allegedly taken by Steven.
 
But they still hope that Steven will say something during the trial that would help in the search for their daughter.
 
“We thought the case should have taken measures to question all the members of that family. That didn’t happen. Now with Josh gone and the kids gone. Our chances of Steve saying something is not great,” said Chuck Cox.
 
Steven is not expected to testify during the trial against him, which resumes Monday.

It doesn't look like the Coxes are going to get any information about Susan from this trial.  Maybe if he is found guilty and has to serve a long sentence, he might give up some information; but I'm not counting on it.  Sad.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

West Valley police to take the stand in Powell trial
Courts » Prosecutors will also call estranged daughter from Utah to testify against father.
First Published 39 minutes ago • Updated 22 minutes ago

Tacoma, Wash. • West Valley City police detectives and Steve Powell’s estranged daughter who lives in Utah are among the witnesses expected to take the stand Monday to testify against the man on the fourth day of his voyeurism trial.
 ::snipping2::
Powell’s trial resumes Monday after a four-day break. Jennifer Graves, of West Jordan, who has publicly spoken out against her father’s pornography interests, is among the witnesses prosecutors plan to call. Prosecutors expect to rest their case following Monday’s testimony; defense attorneys will then call their two witnesses.
 
The case is expected to go to the jury on Tuesday.

Jury to hear closing arguments in Steve Powell voyeurism case
Court » Verdict could be reached as soon as Tuesday afternoon.
First Published 51 minutes ago • Updated 11 minutes ago

Tacoma, Wash. • Closing arguments are slated to begin Tuesday morning in the voyeurism trial for the father-in-law of missing Utah woman Susan Powell.
 
Pierce County Court Judge Ronald E. Culpepper was giving jurors instructions just after 10 a.m. MST. Opening arguments will follow. During those arguments, jurors may for the first time hear a defense theory in the case.

Defense attorneys representing Steve Craig Powell on Monday rested without calling any witnesses. But on cross-examination, attorney Travis Currie centered many of his questions on the other people living in Powell’s home at the time the images at issue were taken.
 
Steve Powell, 62, is accused of filming two young neighbor girls while they were using the bathroom and in various stages of undress. The girls were ages 9 and 8 when the photos were taken in 2006; they are 15 and 13 now.
 
Judge Ronald E. Culpepper on Monday afternoon declined a request to dismiss 12 of the 14 counts filed against Powell. The defense had argued the counts were duplicative as they involved the same criminal conduct.
 
Powell’s estranged daughter, Jennifer Graves, testified Monday that in 2006, her brothers Michael and John were both living at Steve Powell’s home, as well as her sister, Alina. During cross-examination of Graves, the defense seemed to be suggesting that John, who has a history of mental illness, could have been the one who took the photos.

UPDATE 9:20 a.m. PST: Prosecutors have decided not to pursue an aggravating factor for invasion of privacy in the jury deliberations. That could shave some time off of a potential sentence, if Steven Powell is convicted.
 
The jury was summoned into the room. They were handed the jury instructions.
 
“Your decision as jurors must be made solely upon the evidence that was presented in these proceedings,” Judge Culpepper told them.
 
The judge cautioned them to consider only the evidence and testimony. The jury cannot control the sentence, nor should that be a factor in deliberations. Judge Culpepper also reminded the jury that the burden of proof is on the state. Steven Powell is not required to testify, nor can that be used against him, the judge told the jury.
 
The judge went through the charges of voyeurism and the definitions of invasion of privacy, intent, and photographing.

UPDATE 9:56 a.m. PST: “This is a case about a secret. It is a secret no longer because now the entire world knows of Mr. Powell’s secret,” prosecutor Grant Blinn began his closing statements.
 
The victims felt “safe and secure” in the privacy of their homes, Blinn said, but Steven Powell was “lurking in the shadows.”
 
“There is nothing more disturbing to a teenage girl than knowing the middle-aged man next door was taking pictures,” Blinn told the jury.
 
He outlined the evidence and testimony to the jury, saying no one else but Steven Powell would have interest in it and the only one who could take photographs of it would be him. Blinn re-read the journal entry written by Steven Powell that was allowed in court, proclaiming that it was “coming back to haunt him.”
 
The prosecutor described in detail the self-pictures that Steven Powell allegedly took, the looping of images of the alleged victims.
 
He ended by showing pictures of the girls to the jury, one at a time. Some jurors appeared to grimace as Blinn showed the voyeuristic images, urging them to “find him guilty.”

Jurors handed Steven Powell voyeurism case
Posted on May 15, 2012 at 9:55 AM
Updated today at 10:55 AM

The jury in Steven Powell's voyeurism trial began deliberations Tuesday.
 
Closing arguments ended before 11:00 a.m. Powell is charged with 14 counts of felony voyeurism, accused of taking pictures of girls and women without their knowledge across Washington. He has not spoken to detectives and will not testify in his own defense.
 
Evidence used by prosecutors included photos of young girls in bathrooms, girls changing clothes and at least one video of Powell allegedly touching himself. The photo corresponding to each charge was shown once again to jurors during the prosecution's closing arguments.
 
Defense attorneys argued reasonable doubt exists and that, "this case is not about what you feel, it's about what you know."
 
Prior to closing arguments, Pierce County Judge Ronald Culpepper provided jurors instructions on reaching a verdict. Culpepper said the jury must reach a decision based on evidence, not emotions.
 
Jurors were reminded they will have to reach a unanimous verdict on all 14 charges. Culpepper said a guilty verdict would mean jurors believe pictures were used for sexual gratification, and taken without permission of someone in a place where privacy is expected.

UPDATE 10:41 a.m. PST: “This case is not about what seems to be reasonable,” defense attorney Travis Currie told the jury. “A criminal case is about what has been proved.”
 
Throughout his closing statements Currie hammered at the prosecution’s case, insisting prosecutors have not met their burden of proof. At times gesturing wildly, he gave an animated defense.
 
He reminded the jury that the defense does not have to give a defense, nor does Steven Powell have to testify.
 
“Beyond a reasonable doubt is UP HERE!” he said, stretching himself and raising his hands above the jury box.
 
Currie suggested the pictures may not have been taken for sexual gratification. He also said there was no evidence that the disc seized by police was Steven Powell’s.
 
“They found a disc in a box in what we’ve heard is his bedroom,” Currie said.
 
Currie asked why there was no fingerprints on the disc or the box, or why the police never presented pictures into the neighbor’s house from the Powell home. He urged the jury to set aside emotion and “use your head.”
 
“There’s an alternative explanation for what happened here,” he told the jury. “You have to acquit.”
 
In rebuttal, Blinn emphasized the evidence presented against Steven Powell: the images, the journal entry and other things that pointed to him. Blinn said there were prints on the disc, “his digital prints.” He said the camera model matched the pictures on the disc.
 
“Is it possible there’s some explanation? Is it possible men from Mars came down and created these images?” Blinn told the jury sarcastically. “This defendant, Steven Powell, is guilty of 14 counts of voyeurism.”
 
The judge excused jurors 13 and 14 (they were alternates). The jury began deliberations.

Susan Powell Home Videos Show Her With Josh, Steven Powell Before Disappearance
May 15, 2012


Susan Cox Powell was pleasant and warm toward her father-in-law Steven Powell before she disappeared in 2009, in contrast to allegations that she was very wary of him, according to a new website featuring home videos and songs of the Powell family.

The website, titled West Valley and Pierce County Malfeasance, was released today exclusively to ABCNews.com by Steven Powell's daughter, Alina Powell.

It was unveiled on the same day that her father's trial on voyeurism charges went to the jury. Steven Powell is accused of filming and photographing two girls, ages 8 and 12, as they used the bathroom in the home behind Steven's house.

The site aims to show the Powells' side of a two-and-a-half year feud with Susan's parents, as well as between the Powells and the police departments that investigated Susan's disappearance.

Alina Powell said that the videos on the new website won't affect the outcome of her father's case, but are intended to begin offering another side of the Susan Powell story to those who are interested.

"The trial will conclude (today) one way or another," she said. " I waited to put things out so as not to interfere with dad's case, but I've long been tired of seeing people say things they don't really know anything about. (The website) is just kind of to start putting the truth and balance into this stuff."

POWELL TRIAL BLOG: Jury deliberating in Steven Powell trial
Posted on: 8:26 am, May 15, 2012, by Ben Winslow, updated on: 03:11pm, May 15, 2012

UPDATE 2:06 p.m. PST: A new website has emerged with video showing Steven Powell and Susan Cox Powell. It is apparently written by Alina Powell to counter claims that Susan did not like Steve Powell.
 
“If Susan had really thought that Steve Powell were a danger to her children, as the police are trying to claim, there’s no way she would have allowed him access to her children in so carefree a manner as demonstrated in the videos. Susan was a caring mother and an excellent judge of character. The police have misrepresented Susan’s writings in bad faith,” the site says.
 
UPDATE 1:22 p.m. PST: The jury asked if all the boxes taken from Steven Powell’s bedroom belonged to him. Because it is a factual issue, Judge Culpepper said he could not answer that.
 
“Please keep deliberating,” he wrote back to them in a note.
 
The judge said he would allow them to keep deliberating until 4:15 p.m. PST, and then inquire of they wanted to continue into the evening or resume the next day.
 
UPDATE 1:09 p.m. PST: Steven Powell was brought back into the courtroom. The jury apparently has a question.
 
UPDATE 12:54 p.m. PST: The jury returned to resume deliberations.
 
UPDATE 12:23 p.m. PST: “I believe the jurors will make the right decision today,” Susan Cox Powell’s sister, Denise Cox, told reporters outside of court.
 
Though there was no revelations about Susan that emerged at trial, Cox said she got some satisfaction from the trial.
 
“The embarrassment,” she said. “I did see him at one time, he had a red face. He was a little embarrassed that his secret got told.”
 
Anne Bremner, the attorney for the alleged victim in this case, said the girls were upset that the child pornography count was dismissed.
 
“The girls felt, in some ways, the system wasn’t working,” she said. “But once they testified, I think they really felt the system was working and they were glad to be a part of it.”

Posted on: 8:26 am, May 15, 2012, by Ben Winslow, updated on: 04:32pm, May 15, 2012

UPDATE 3:27 p.m. PST: Alina Powell spoke briefly, off camera, to reporters about the website she created.
 
“It gets the message out there,” she said.
 
Powell insisted she was not trying to influence the outcome of her father’s trial. The videos, she said, show a different side of things. They show Susan Cox Powell, her children, Charlie and Braden, Josh Powell and Steven Powell in lighter moments.
 
“When I watch the videos, it’s just sweet family moments,” Alina Powell said, slightly emotional.
 
UPDATE 3:16 p.m. PST: The clerk just told defense attorney Travis Currie that the jury wants to view the disc that was seized by police. That means that the courtroom will be cleared so they can view it on a projector.
 
UPDATE 3:06 p.m. PST: The jury indicated to the judge they have another question.

To those who can't resist the urge to visit the website I offer you a piece of advice:  Have a barf bag handy. 

I could make a site just like it with my family videos.  Happy faces of smiling children and adults -- all for the camera because who would choose to  not show off their best faces.  But as the old song goes, "No one knows what goes on behind closed doors."    ::CowboySmiley::

No verdict today in Steve Powell case; jury returns tomorrow
Posted by Cathy McLain on May 15, 2012 at 4:53 PM

A jury in Tacoma needs more time to deliberate in the voyeurism case against the father-in-law of a missing Utah mother.

Jurors broke for the day this afternoon after considering Steve Powell’s fate for several hours. They planned to return at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

I'm worried.  If the jury asked the judge if all the boxes taken from the bedroom belonged to SP, then someone in the jury room is arguing that some of the stuff could've belonged to one of the boys. 

Please, don't let this be another Pinellas County.

Jury resumes deliberations in Powell voyeur case


TACOMA, Wash. — A jury handling the voyeurism case against a missing Utah woman's father-in-law has restarted deliberations.

Jurors in the Washington state court resumed their talks on Wednesday morning to determine the fate of Steve Powell. They failed to reach a verdict Tuesday during several hours of deliberations.

Jury still deliberating in Steven Powell case
Posted on: 8:17 am, May 16, 2012


TACOMA — A jury of six men and six women will resume deliberations this morning in the voyeurism trial of Steven Powell, the father-in-law of missing West Valley City mom Susan Cox Powell.

The jury deliberated about four hours on Tuesday, asking two questions of the judge in the case. The jury asked if all the boxes in Steven Powell’s bedroom really belonged to him. The judge replied that it was a factual issue.

“Please keep deliberating,” he wrote back.

Then the jury asked to view the images that Steven Powell is accused of taking of a pair of neighbor girls. He is charged with 14 counts of voyeurism, a charge that could net him up to 5 years in prison on each count.

“I think the evidence clearly shows the things in the room are his,” said Anne Bremner, the attorney for the two young girls.

She said she expects a guilty verdict, but admitted being nervous with the deliberations taking so long.

If some members of the jury feel that the image in one of the exhibits does not meet the requirements from beyond a reasonable doubt but after reviewing the disc can we use other frames before & after to come to a decision?

Judge Culpepper said he could not give an answer, and appeared to struggle with what exactly the question was. Prosecutors urged him to refer the jury back to one of the instructions.

The judge wrote back:

You have received all of the exhibits and the court’s instructions. Please refer to them.

“We’ll let you know when we hear something from the jury,” Judge Culpepper told lawyers as Steven Powell was led out of the courtroom

Chuck Cox, Susan’s father said he hopes putting Steven Powell on trial will help investigators locate Susan. However, Cox said he would not be in favor for letting Powell out of jail in exchange for information about Susan’s whereabouts.

“We think it’s important to keep Steve off the streets,” said Cox.

Years ago ...

Steven Powell Found Guilty of Voyeurism Charges
By Colleen Curry
May 16, 2012

Steven Powell, the father-in-law of missing woman Susan Powell, was found guilty of voyeurism in a Washington court today for taking inappropriate images of neighborhood girls using the bathroom and showering.

The Pierce County, Wash., jury found Powell guilty of all 14 counts of voyeurism after only six-and-a-half hours of deliberations.

He could be sentenced to nearly five years on each of the 14 counts. If he got the maximum, he could go to prison for 70 years.
 ::snipping2::
During the trial, the jury saw images of two neighborhood girls, ages 8 and 10, that Powell was alleged to have taken from his bedroom window, which faced the bathroom of the girls' home in back of his home. They were also shown pictures of Powell engaged in sexual activity, and read a journal entry in which Powell disclosed his interest in taking pictures of women.
 ::snipping2::
Images of Susan Powell were also found on Steven Powell's computer disks, but they were not admitted into evidence because the charges focused on the invasion of privacy of the two neighborhood girls.

Investigators working on the Susan Powell case asked to talk to Steven Powell about the case following Josh's death, but he has denied those requests.

Post by: Northern Rose on May 16, 2012, 03:50:36 PM
 ::snipping2::

With the conviction on all 14 counts, Powell faces the possibility of up to 5 years in jail for each count.

Sentencing was scheduled for June 15.

Prosecutors said they don't plan to seek information on the Susan Powell case as part of a trade to reduce Steve Powell's sentence.

He faces a standard sentence of around four years, but the state has alleged aggravating factors that could result in a longer term.

Sentencing is scheduled for June 15.

Powell is scheduled to be sentenced on June 15. He faces a maximum of five years in prison for each of the 14 counts. The state has said they will seek an "exceptional" sentence.

It is not clear whether Powell could serve consecutive sentences for each count, which could amount to a 70 year sentence. This is his first criminal conviction.

Powell will be interviewed by the Department of Corrections prior to the sentencing date.

I really object to this USA Today article headline.  "Spying on young girls" sounds a lot more innocent than what actually occurred.  In my mind, "spying on young girls" would be more like watching them at a play ground or something.  But the little girls were filmed by the pervert Steve Powell bathing and using the restroom in their own home!!  That's a lot more than "spying"  ::MonkeyMad::  The article is all nicely sanitized with " photographing two young neighbor girls in their bathroom..."   ::MonkeyNoNo::

I do realize the article may have tried to be sympathetic to the innocent young girls that were photographed without their knowledge in their own home by Steve Powell.  I just don't know if people have read and followed the case close enough to realize the children were nude at times.  It's just so wrong for him to have photographed the children like he did, clothed or not.  And then there was the evidence that wasn't allowed in.   ::MonkeyNoNo::

We conclude that where the evidence fails to show that defendant had such awareness, the People have not met their burden of demonstrating defendant's knowing procurement or possession of those files.

IMO, that says viewing child porn is not illegal and it contradicts the cache issue.  If you view it, you have awareness.

Steve Powell's legal troubles may not be over


OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The voyeurism conviction of a missing Utah woman's father-in-law may not be the last of his legal troubles.

An attorney who represents the teenage girls at the center of Steve Powell's voyeurism trial said Thursday they plan to file a lawsuit against him.

Lawyer Anne Bremner also represents the family of Susan Powell, the daughter-in-law of Steve Powell who has been missing since 2009.

Bremner said the lawsuit should be filed in the next few weeks and will accuse Steve Powell of causing emotional distress and violating the girls' right to privacy. She says the teens don't expect any substantial damages but hope the lawsuit continues to put pressure on Steve Powell

Steven Powell’s daughter defends family on website, video

TACOMA — On a website created by Steven Powell’s daughter to counter claims about her family, Alina Powell said her father was “denied the right to defend himself in court because the relevant arguments and evidence showing his innocence were not allowed during the trial.”

Steven Powell’s attorneys presented no defense at trial. He was convicted of 14 counts of voyeurism and faces up to 70 years in prison when he is sentenced.

On the website, Alina Powell suggested the evidence police and prosecutors against her father was fabricated. The pictures presented at trial may have been Photoshopped.

“Overall, the police had access to all the resources needed to fabricate the so-called evidence brought against Steve Powell. The suspicious or overly convenient circumstances of the alleged crime and evidence, as well as the advance preparations the police were clearly making leading up to the search, also suggest foul play,” the website says.

The site includes a nearly 10-minute video narrated by Alina Powell that accuses people in the high-profile missing persons case of “scapegoating” her family, criticizing the police and Susan’s family.

Steven Powell: A case study in family destruction

Steven Powell’s conviction on 14 counts of voyeurism Wednesday should give police plenty of time – as he sits in prison – to explore his possible involvement in the disappearance of his daughter-in-law, Susan Powell.

Steven Powell’s conviction on 14 counts of voyeurism Wednesday should give police plenty of time – as he sits in prison – to explore his possible involvement in the disappearance of his daughter-in-law, Susan Powell.

His role in the corruption of her husband, who burned their two sons to death in February, is already obvious.

Josh Powell had a penchant for pornography and a tendency to demean and menace his wife, as Susan’s emails and other surviving documents have made clear. His murder of the two young boys doesn’t prove that he killed their mother, but it does prove that he was capable of worse. At the very least, one could say that Josh was not a paragon of respect for women.

Like father, like son.

May 23, 2012

The voyeurism conviction of a missing Utah woman's father-in-law may not be the last of his legal troubles, as an attorney said Thursday she is working on a lawsuit that could keep pressure on Steve Powell.

Lawyer Anne Bremner represents the family of two teenage girls who were the target of Powell's voyeurism. She said the lawsuit should be filed in the next few weeks and will accuse him of violating the girls' right to privacy and causing emotional distress.

Bremner said the family does not expect to get any substantial damages from Powell but hopes the lawsuit continues to pressure him to discuss Susan Powell's still-unsolved disappearance.

"You just don't want this guy to be in a position where he can prosper," said Bremner, who also represents Susan Powell's family. "It's yet another way to keep pressure on him."

Prosecutor wants Steven Powell to serve decade in prison
But Susan Cox Powell, his missing daughter-in-law, still won’t be an issue at sentencing.
First Published May 27 2012 07:11 pm • Updated 44 minutes ago

A Washington state prosecutor will ask a judge to sentence Steve Powell to 10 years in prison for taking photographs of two former neighbor girls as they were undressed in their home.
 
That would be almost double or triple the amount of prison called for in Washington’s sentencing guidelines. Powell, who is the father-in-law of missing West Valley City woman Susan Cox Powell, was convicted earlier this month of 14 counts of voyeurism. Sentencing is scheduled for June 15 in Pierce County, Wash., Superior Court in Tacoma.

The prosecutor, Grant Blinn, said earlier this week in an email to The Salt Lake Tribune he will ask for 10 years. Blinn did not specify why.

Steve Powell’s attorney, Travis Currie, said he’ll ask for something less than 10 years.

"We believe that would be an excessive sentence based on his history and these charges based on other like cases," Currie said.

A jury found Steve Powell photographed two girls, then ages 9 and 8, through an open widow as they bathed and used the toilet in their home. The photographs were taken in 2006.
 
Steve Powell faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison on each of the counts, but Washington sentencing guidelines recommend Powell receive between 43 and 57 months in prison.
 
Washington law allows a judge to exceed those guidelines for aggravating circumstances, including being convicted of nine or more counts.

Susan Powell's parents take control of her Utah home

Susan Powell’s parents now have control of the home where the missing Utah mother was last seen more than two years ago.
 
Property records list Chuck and Judy Cox as "owners" of the 2,238-square-foot home on Sarah Circle in West Valley City after a Washington probate judge named them special administrators for their daughter’s estate under a provision for missing persons cases.

 ::snipping2::

Downing said a Washington judge also named the Coxes personal administrators for their grandsons’ estates. Josh Powell had insurance policies in his sons’ names worth $500,000, as well as $1 million policies in both his and his missing wife’s names. Those policies are now the subject of a court action between Josh Powell’s siblings and mother and the Coxes.

Am I wrong in thinking that any insurance in Susan's name can not be claimed until she is declared legally dead and that only her surviving family can do that?  (her parents, sibling)  I guess what I'm asking is whether Josh's siblings can try to have Susan declared dead?  If they do, it would look bad on his 'she ran off' argument.

Steven Powell's attorneys ask for short sentence
Published: 06/09/12 12:05 am

Steven Craig Powell’s attorneys will ask a Pierce County judge to sentence their client to no more than a year in jail on his multiple voyeurism convictions, which is 90 percent less time than that sought by prosecutors.

A jury last month convicted Powell of 14 counts of voyeurism.

Defense attorneys Mark Quigley and Travis Currie argue in pleadings filed Friday their client should be sentenced under guidelines in place before June 7, 2006, which classified voyeurism as an unranked felony with a standard range of zero to 12 months in jail.

Each conviction was to run concurrently (at the same time) under those guidelines.
 ::snipping2::
Prosecutors contend Powell deserves 10 years in prison for repeatedly violating the girls’ privacy. They also say sentencing him to concurrent sentences would allow him to escape punishment on many of his convictions. They concede two of the 14 counts should merge for sentencing purposes.

“We believe he should be sentenced on 12 counts,” deputy prosecutor Grant Blinn said.

Quigley and Currie also intend to argue at Powell’s sentencing hearing Friday before Superior Court Judge Ronald Culpepper that all but two of the convictions against their client should be dismissed on double jeopardy grounds.

Steven Powell’s lawyers want charges tossed, reduced sentence
June 9, 2012

TACOMA — Steven Powell’s defense team is asking a judge to dismiss most of the voyeurism charges a jury convicted him of.

In court documents obtained Saturday by FOX 13, Powell’s attorneys argue that it would be double jeopardy to sentence him on the 14 counts of voyeurism. They ask the judge to dismiss all but two counts — one for each victim.

“There is no evidence to prove that all of these acts took place at different times. The testimony was that they could have all taken place on the same day. The State presented evidence that the individual photos themselves were drawn from a series of images saved from a digital video recording, but no definitive evidence to support the conclusion that they were taken at different times,” defense attorneys Mark Quigley and Travis Currie wrote in a motion to dismiss.
 ::snipping2::
In another filing obtained by FOX 13, the defense team asks for up to a year in prison, arguing that the prosecution’s request is too harsh.

Steve Powell sentencing: He could be free Friday or in a decade
Hearing Friday » Susan and Josh Powell probably won’t be discussed in court
First Published June 14 2012 3 hours ago • Updated 12 minutes ago

What does Steve Powell have riding on Friday’s sentencing hearing?

If things go well — very well — Powell could leave the courthouse in Tacoma, Wash., and be free in time for a seafood dinner that night at one of the restaurants overlooking Puget Sound.

If the prosecutor and the mother of the girls Powell filmed have their way, Powell will be eating in a prison cafeteria until about 2021.

Powell sentencing set for Friday
June 14th, 2012 @ 5:45am

SALT LAKE CITY — The mother of his two victims will testify tomorrow on what punishment should be handed down to convicted voyeur Steven Powell.

His estranged daughter is calling for a long sentence - not just for the little girls next door, but for Susan Cox Powell. There is also new pressure to get Powell to release information in her disappearance.

Cox family attorney Anne Bremner is still focused on the big picture - what happened to the missing West Valley City woman.

"There's nothing like this case," Bremner said. "I mean, it's just the most horrific, tragic, upsetting case I think that any of us have ever seen."

While the mother of the girls - who are now ages 13 and 15 - delivers a statement of how her daughters were affected, Bremner also plans to serve Powell with a lawsuit.

"Unless the jail guards stop me," Bremner said in a phone interview with KSL NewsRadio. "I have to talk with them in advance because they're very security conscious and they may not let me do it."

 ::snipping2::
Steve Powell was arrested last September after investigators searching his home for evidence in Susan Powell's disappearance came across computer disks with what they described as thousands of images of women and girls who seemed unaware they were being photographed.

Those filmed, prosecutors say, included the neighbor girls, who were identified in court only by their initials and who were about 8 and 10 when the images were recorded.

Thank goodness.  This is so scary to me...he is like one of these guys that abduct a child and then kills her and we find out later that he had a prior history and needed a harsher sentence to begin with...I pray that it does not turn out like this.  But, come on...all of the signs are there and then some.

I just wish some of the other women in his video collection could be identified and charges brought on their behalf.  He supposedly had hundreds.  Too bad someone's husband or daddy didn't catch him doing it.  The guy needs a 'come to Jesus' meeting with an angry spouse.

Cox family not happy with voyeurism sentence; more legal battles lie ahead
June 15th, 2012 @ 10:28pm

SALT LAKE CITY — The family of missing West Valley mother Susan Cox Powell was not pleased with the 30-month jail sentence Susan's father-in-law, Steven Powell, received Friday. But the sentence isn't the last of Powell's legal troubles.
  ::snipping2::
Prior to Friday's sentencing, the attorney for Steve Powell's young voyeurism victims served his attorneys with papers essentially suing him.
 
"I walked into the jury room, and he was there sitting with his lawyers," Anne Bremner said. "And he did look at me, and I put the paperwork over toward him, hoping that he would touch it. He did not. His lawyers acknowledge that he served and thanked me."
 
Chuck Cox said he also plans to talk to prosecutors about filing another case against Powell on his missing daughter's behalf.
 
"She was a victim," he said Friday. "But I understand why they excluded her from the case. It made it a cleaner case."
 
His wife, Judy Cox, called the entire case "very frustrating," but said every little bit helps them get closure, even as their ultimate goal is to find their daughter and bury her. Friday, there was some comfort in knowing Powell would remain in custody.
 
Bremner is also focusing on her other clients: Chuck and Judy Cox. She wants records from the Pierce County Sheriff's Office about the evidence gathered against Powell in his voyeurism case, which may also have clues about what may have happened to Susan.
 
The Pierce County Sheriff's Office, Bremner says, had previously agreed to release the records at the end of the trial but now view a lawsuit as a "cleaner option."

Steven Powell appealing voyeurism conviction

Lawyers for the father-in-law of missing Utah woman Susan Powell have filed a notice of appeal in his Washington state voyeurism case.
 Steven Powell was sentenced Friday to 2 1/2 years in prison for recording images of two neighbor girls in their bathroom.
 
Lawyer Mark Quigley says the defense team filed notice Friday in Superior Court.
 
Eventual grounds for appeal will be decided by an appellate lawyer. However, Quigley says he thinks the strongest argument concerns the legality of the search of Powell's home.
 
Steven Powell's defense team argues that the search of his home that turned up the hundreds of pictures that led to his voyeurism conviction was illegal.

Children Steven Powell photographed file civil lawsuit against him
Published: Wednesday, June 20 2012 3:14 p.m. MDT

TACOMA, Wash. — Calling his actions "outrageous," "heinous," "disgusting" and "egregious," the attorney representing two young Washington girls followed through on her promise Wednesday to file a civil lawsuit against Steven Powell.

Seattle-based attorney Anne Bremner filed a lawsuit against Powell on behalf of two of his former neighbors, then ages 8 and 10, whom Powell videotaped from his own home through an open door while they were in their bathroom. In the digital images taken from the recordings, the girls were nude or partially nude.
 ::snipping2::
In filing his notice of appeal on his conviction, Powell indicated his home was worth about $250,000 and his 2005 Plymouth Voyager about $4,000, but he did not have any income from interest or dividends, his checking and savings accounts were empty and he had no cash.

By filing a civil suit, Bremner said she is now able to request police records regarding the search of Powell's home on behalf of both the young girls and Chuck and Judy Cox, the parents of Susan Cox Powell who has been missing from Utah for 2 1/2 years and is presumed dead. Bremner also represents the Coxes.

The prime suspect in Susan Powell's disappearance is her husband, Josh Powell, who killed himself and murdered his two young sons in February.

Bremner said the civil suit would take an average of 18 months to complete. What's important, she said, is to make sure Steven Powell is out of the lives of the young girls and their family once and for all, and to get him out of the neighborhood where he committed the crimes.

Bremner believes the likelihood of Powell re-offending is high.

Nonprofit to help foster kids called 'Charlie's Dinosaur,' after slain Powell boys

10:07 p.m. PDT, June 25, 2012

SEATTLE—
It's a simple drawing done by a little boy, a dinosaur outlined in black with a red tongue sticking out and the name Charlie written across the top.

But this poster drawn by one of Josh Powell's murdered sons has become a symbol of so much more. Now, “Charlie's Dinosaur” and the idea it spawned is about to help hundreds of other Pierce County foster kids.

SEATTLE, Washington (KOMO-TV) -- The mother of two teenage girls who were the target of voyeurism conviction says she's still waiting for an apology and believes he may be able to help solve the disappearance of his daughter-in-law Susan Powell.

She insists Steven Powell robbed her daughters of a normal life and is forcing them to live with a secret -- and they are determined to keep pressure on him.

"It was so shocking, unnerving and scary for us as a family," said the mother, who wishes to remain anonymous.

Steve Powell will be released from prison in May
Voyeurism » He receives credit for more than half of his sentence.


First Published 16 minutes ago • Updated 3 minutes ago

 ::snipping2::
A Washington Department of Corrections spokeswoman on Friday said Powell has a release date of May 23, 2013. The spokeswoman, Selena Davis explained in an email Powell has been given credit for 535 days toward his sentence.

That includes the 271 days Powell spent in a jail in Tacoma, Wash., awaiting trial and sentencing, and 135 days for good behavior in the jail.

Corrections also is subtracting 169 days from Powell’s sentence because his offense was nonviolent, Davis explained.

That leaves Powell with 338 days to serve in prison.

Detectives set up charity for foster kids in memory of Charlie and Braden Powell murder
PUBLISHED: 16:57 EST, 1 July 2012 | UPDATED: 16:57 EST, 1 July 2012

Detectives have started a charity in memory of brothers Charlie and Braden Powell who were murdered by their father in February.
Police in Pierce County, Washington, created Charlie's Dinosaur, a non-profit to help foster children, after they came across a heart-warming picture of a dinosaur, drawn by seven-year-old Charlie, while cleaning out the family's storage unit.

'Having gone through that investigation, and having been very affected by it, a small group of us decided to get together,' detective Lynette Anderson told Komo News.
 ::snipping2::
'Our goal is to provide a backpack of personal items for these children to help them gain a sense of comfort and security in owning their own clothing and hygiene supplies,' said the Charlie’s Dinosaur Facebook page.

'Our wish is that when faced with the overwhelming emotion that comes from being removed from their normal care, that the children can maintain the dignity and reassurance of having their own complete set of clothing, personal care items, small toys and comfort items.'

Ms Anderson told Komo News that Charlie's Dinosaur was aiming to distribute a hundred backpacks every month.

Steven Powell set to be released from prison next May
June 29, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Powell, 62, is scheduled to be released from custody May 23, 2013 — 338 days from the time the sentence went into effect on June 19, Washington Department of Corrections spokeswoman Selena Davis said. Powell was sentenced to 30 months in prison for 12 counts of voyeurism by Pierce County Superior Court Judge Ronald Culpepper June 15.

At that hearing, Culpepper said the fact that Powell filmed his young neighbors while they were in the bathroom of their own home warranted an exceptional sentence. But with credit for the 271 days Powell spent in jail, coupled with other reductions, the sentence won't go beyond a year.

Davis said the original sentence amounted to 913 days. With a reduction of 135 days for good behavior in jail,  another reduction of 169 days because Powell's offense was non-violent and the credit for the time served, the sentence is actually 338 days.


Davis said Powell is currently being housed at the corrections center in Shelton, Wash., in the Intensive Management Unit. All offenders spend the first four to eight weeks of their sentence at the facility to allow for an evaluation of their needs and custody level, Davis said, but Powell was placed in the Intensive Management Unit "for his own protection."

Powell may also be placed in a facility outside of Washington because he was once an employee of the Washington Department of Corrections.

"In some cases, former DOC staff members are sent to out-of-state prisons for their own protection, though it's too soon for us to know where Powell will serve the rest of his prison sentence," Davis said.

But they were also very vocal about the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of their daughter, Susan, and the lack of information from the West Valley City Police Department.

Susan Powell’s parents visit Utah, say the Osmonds are helping them
First Published Jul 09 2012 05:28 pm • Last Updated Jul 09 2012 11:39 pm

The parents of missing woman Susan Powell arrived in Utah on Monday to examine her West Valley City home and talk about a memorial to her and her sons.

Powell’s father, Chuck Cox, said Utah’s famous showbiz family, the Osmonds, want to help raise money for a memorial. Cox said he didn’t know what which members of the Osmond clan would participate or what they would do to raise the money.
 ::snipping2::
But Cox said the primary reason for his Utah trip was to decide what to do with the West Valley City house. Cox and his family inherited it after Josh Powell’s death.

There are two mortgages on the house at 6254 W. Sarah Circle (3945 South) and the home is worth less than is owed, Cox said. At present, Cox said, his daughter’s estate has no other assets, though the Coxes have joined a lawsuit seeking funds from Josh and Susan Powell’s life insurance policy. Cox said he hasn’t decided yet what to do with the house.

May the Lord help the prosecutors keep SP where he is today and may He also shine light on the evidence that ties SP to Susan's murder very soon so that this monster can never harm another person ever again...and give Susan's parents peace in knowing what happened and where she is.

Susan Powell's family prepared to sue to get West Valley police records
Updated: 7:35 pm (July 31, 2012)

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (ABC 4 News) – Three strikes and you're out. The family of Susan Powell has filed a third request with the city of West Valley for the police files into their daughter’s disappearance. If this third request is denied they say they’re prepared to file a lawsuit.
 ::snipping2::
Bremner says the Cox family has every right to the records under Utah’s victim’s rights law. “In Utah the statute states the victims have the same rights as those accused of the crime and so what I’ve been arguing is that defendants in criminal cases have a right to the records so why wouldn’t the victims have the same rights.”

Bremner’s request has been shot down twice. Once by the West Valley Police Department in May and the appeal was denied by the city in June. Now Bremner is moving on to the city council. It’s the last step before she files a lawsuit against West Valley for the disclosure of the documents.

“They want to find Susan first and foremost they want to know what’s been revealed for her potential whereabouts in these records,” said Bremner.

The Coxs not only want to find out what happened to Susan, they want to make sure nothing like this ever happens again. Bremner says it’s possible the documents could reveal mistakes that were made in the investigation that could be used in a potential civil trail.

State now faces lawsuit over handling of Powell case

http://www.komonews.com/news/local/State-now-faces-lawsuit-over-handling-of-Powell-case-164820086.html

OLYMPIA, Wash. - Attorneys are preparing to sue the state of Washington over how social workers handled the children of Josh Powell.

Lawyer Anne Bremner said the case will be filed Friday on behalf of Susan Cox Powell, who went missing in 2009. A guardian ad litem has been appointed to represent her. Josh Powell killed himself and the couple's two young children during a supervised visit earlier this year.

Bremner has represented the parents of Susan Powell. She says they want to see changes in how the state handles these cases, such as less focus on trying to immediately reunify parents with their children.

Bremner's announcement came the same day a special panel reviewing the deaths of Josh Powell's two young sons says state social workers failed to consult with law enforcement before allowing Powell to host visits at his home, where he ultimately killed both boys and himself.

The report released Thursday says the Department of Social and Health Services should "make concerted efforts" to check with detectives prior to making changes in parent-child contacts when there is an active investigation.

State social workers faulted on young sons' visits in Josh Powell case
6 hours ago (August 2, 2012)

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- A panel reviewing the deaths of Josh Powell's two young children says state social workers did not consult with law enforcement before allowing Powell to host visits at his home.

A report released Thursday says the Department of Social and Health Services should "make concerted efforts" to check with detectives prior to making changes in parent-child contacts when there is an active investigation. Authorities had been investigating the 2009 disappearance of Powell's wife, Susan.

They report from DSHS is a whole bunch of shoulda, coulda, woulda.  In the end, they knew Josh was the prime suspect in the murder of Susan and still allowed him access to his children.  What kind of blinders have to be worn in order for an agency to see that a father suspected in the killing of his wife would be capable of doing the same to his children.  The fact that the resources made it inopportune to have the ordered visitations in the Counseling Center should not have been a reason to allow a more lenient visitation venue.  As usual, CPS has screwed up again because they wouldn't make a decision based on the children's best interest rather than the parent's demands to be reunified as soon as possible.   ::CowboySmiley::

Newly released documents shed light into Susan Powell disappearance
Updated: 7:21 pm | Published: 1:41 pm (August 7, 2012)

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Prosecutors released documents revealing that detectives were treating the 2009 disappearance of Susan Powell as a kidnapping and homicide early in their investigation.

More than 800 paged of court documents also showed that authorities were concentrating their investigation on Susan's husband Josh.

The documents, which contain several redacted lines and pages, provided very few new details into Susan's disappearance or the ensuing investigation of Josh Powell.

But what's clear is that throughout the documents Josh Powell is viewed as a murder suspect.

Police focused on Josh Powell's odd behavior from the beginning, new documents show
Redacted reports reveal little new info in Susan Powell case
Published: Tuesday, Aug. 7 2012 6:39 p.m. MDT

 ::snipping2::
Many pages of the documents are heavily redacted, including all of the returns on the search warrants that indicate what items were seized. Of the 853 total pages in the documents, 615 pages — or 72 percent — contain redactions. Some pages have minor redactions such as email addresses or fax numbers, some have major redactions and some of the pages released are completely blacked out.

The majority of documents that were not redacted contain information that has already been released. Much of that information was previously released in search warrants unsealed in March in Tacoma, Wash.
 ::snipping2::
Attorney Anne Bremner, who represents Susan Powell's parents, Chuck and Judy Cox, said the release of documents Tuesday was a good start, but still not enough.

"We want it all," she said. "Until we have it all, we won't quit our efforts."

West Valley had originally rejected Bremner's request for the city's police records regarding the Powell investigation. She appealed and was rejected again, and subsequently filed another appeal.

Bremner is now scheduled to appear before the West Valley City Council on Aug. 21 to argue in person why she and the Cox family believe the rest of the court papers that were redacted should also be released.

The journals were among the more than 2,700 pages of documents made public by the Pierce County Sheriff's Office in Washington state, including police reports into the tragic murders of Charlie and Braden Powell at the hand of their father, Josh Powell, who also died after setting fire to his rental Graham, Wash., house

PIERCE COUNTY, WA (KING/CNN) - Investigators have released about 3,000 pages of evidence in the case against Steven Powell, the father-in-law of missing Susan Cox Powell.

The entries from his journals include passages that detail his out-of-control love for Susan Cox Powell.

"The fact is, I can hardly control myself when it comes to her," Steven Powell wrote in his journal.

In passages from 17 spiral notebooks, which spanned more than a decade, Powell allegedly wrote of sexual fantasies and expressed love for his daughter-in-law as early as January 2003.

He admitted he secretly recorded Susan and watched the videos while masturbating.

'My mom is dead': What Susan Powell's son told his teacher after she disappeared as police files reveal husband Josh took out $1.5m life insurance policy on her

17:43 GMT, 9 August 2012


The eldest son of missing Utah mother Susan Powell told his teacher 'my mom is dead' after her disappearance and also told police she went on the camping trip with them but 'did not come back'.

 ::snipping2::


The documents reveal that a search of the Powell home turned up blood evidence not only on the sofa, but on nearby carpet and a tile floor.  Forensic tests showed it belonged to Susan.
'If I die it may not be an accident even if it looks like one' They also found Susan's purse with all her cards, money and identification. When they told Josh about this, he did not seem concerned and did not ask if they had found her throughout the whole investigation, according to documents.

What police did not tell Josh, the documents reveal, is there was also a safe deposit key in her purse.

When they traced it to a local Wells Fargo, they found that only Susan had access to it and she had used it only twice.

Inside the box was a folded letter addressed to her friends and family with specific instructions that it should not be shown to her husband, writing that she didn't trust him.

 ::snipping2::


The affidavit, which is just a part of a large number of sealed documents in the missing mother's case, also reveal that when police searched Josh Powell's van after he returned from the late-night camping trip with his sons, they found a generator, blankets, a gas can, tarps, circular saw, humidifier, utility knife, latex gloves, rake, sleds, and a shovel.

They also found Susan's cellphone with no SIM card in it.

When questioned about his impromptu late-night camping trip, Powell told authorities he was testing out a new generator, according to the documents.

As well as eldest son Charlie telling investigators his mother had gone camping with them but 'decided to stay and not come home', Susan's other son Braden, who was just two at the time, said his mother was 'in the trunk'.

He gathered her hair from her hair brush to aid him in masturbation! He took her used panty hose and replaced them with new ones! Sicko! How did he get into their home? Poor Susan had not 1 minute of privacy ....not even when she went to the bathroom!
This is going to be heart breaking for her family to hear.

NANCY GRACE
Susan Powell`s Father-in-Law`s Graphic Diaries
Aired August 15, 2012 - 20:00:00   ET
THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

NANCY GRACE, HOST: Breaking news tonight, live, Salt Lake City. The mystery surrounding the disappearance of a young stockbroker, a mother of two, 28-year-old Susan Cox Powell, last seen when Daddy suddenly announces at midnight on a Sunday night he`s taking the boys, ages 4 and 2 camping -- in the snow. They get back home, Daddy says Mommy`s gone, and she`s never seen again.

Then more tragedy for Susan`s family. Husband Josh Powell`s home explodes in a towering burst of flames. Inside, Josh Powell, and in a bitter twist, Susan`s beloved little boys, Josh Powell inflicting the greatest pain ever on Susan and her family in a suicide-double homicide of the two little boys, just 5 and 7.

Bombshell tonight. After outrageous claims from the father-in-law -- Josh Powell`s father -- that he was having an affair with Susan Powell, we obtain the father-in-law`s private journals, revealing his twisted sex obsession with his own daughter-in-law, Susan, the diaries complete with undercover photos of Susan, some of them so graphic, we can`t even repeat them in their entirety on the air tonight.

But tonight, did the sex-obsessed father-in-law mastermind Susan`s death and the murders of her two little boys?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "I have never felt such lust for a woman, even for the one I ended up marrying."

STEVEN POWELL, FATHER-IN-LAW: Susan was very, very sexual with me.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Steven Powell even wrote love songs about her.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "I have never lusted for a woman as I do Susan."

POWELL: She was very flirtatious. I mean, I`m her father-in-law.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "I would love to clean her entire body with my tongue."

POWELL: She pressed her breasts against my hands.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "I was so in lust with her that I began going to her laundry and retrieving her panties to check out her scent."

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Do you think a part of you started falling in love with Susan?

POWELL: That`s pretty likely, yes. I mean, I -- yes, I would say so. And I -- and there`s no question in my mind that the feelings were mutual.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "I could see well up her thigh, covered as it was with the silky white garments. I let my eyes slowly move down her body and drink her in."

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GRACE: Susan is dead. Her two boys were murdered. And this is her pervy father-in-law. That was Susan`s father-in-law on ABC`s "GMA" talking about how there was a mutual flirtation. There was not. Before I go to the first guest or take the first call, let me just say that is not true.

Good evening. I`m Nancy Grace. I want to thank you for being with us.

Bombshell tonight. Live to Salt Lake City, the mystery surrounding the disappearance of a young stockbroker, a mother of two, Susan Cox Powell. After bizarre and outrageous claims by her father-in-law he was having a torrid affair with her, we get our mitts on his private journals that reveal his twisted and sick sex obsession, a sex obsession with his own daughter-in-law, Susan Powell.

These diaries -- they`re complete with undercover photos. And what I mean by that is this guy -- let me just start off with saying he`s been busted taking long-shot photos of an 8 and 9-year-old little girl in the bathroom across the way, like across the street, going to the bathroom. He takes pictures of these children, these little girls, as they`re tee-teeing in their own bathroom.

These graphic photos he takes of her -- she didn`t pose for them. He would slip mirrors under doors, take long-shot lens photos of her. But the big question tonight -- forget about his creepy sex obsession with his own daughter-in-law. My question tonight is did this perv mastermind Susan`s disappearance and death and the murder of her two little boys in what I can only describe as a towering inferno in the home of their addled-brained father, Josh Powell.

Her parents are torn in half at the loss of their two grandchildren, the loss of their daughter, who we all know we`ll never see again. Now, Josh Powell`s family, including the stepfather, still contends that she ran off with another man. That did not happen, OK?

When you hear his diaries, you too may come to question whether he, in fact, was the mastermind behind her death and the deaths of her children.

We are taking your calls. I want to go straight out to Jim Kirkwood, joining me there in Salt Lake City, the host at KTKK. Jim, I am disgusted with these journals.

Before I throw you the first question, I want the viewers to get a tiny taste of what we have all been really forced to read in a search for the truth. Roll it, Dana.

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "In many ways, my life has seemed out of control. My biggest problem, as well as my greatest pleasure, lies in the fact that for over a year, I have been madly in love with my daughter-in-law, Susan. I want to (EXPLETIVE DELETED) her, but I also want to marry her. I wonder if she would consider that? I have never lusted for a woman as I do Susan."

"Driving on the freeway today, I wanted Susan so much that it was squeezing tears out of my eyes. The pressure was coming from my genitals in the form of desire that seemed to actually fill my head with some sort of love-induced pressure."

GRACE: You`re seeing a shot there that was included in his diaries. He would take these long-shot angles. Look, he would -- let me see that in full, please, Dana.

He would actually go to where she worked and video her going in and out of her workplace, and then fantasize in his journals that she knew that he was videoing her from -- there`s a shot of her leg. Man, this poor lady didn`t have a chance.

All right, Kirkwood, KTKK, joining me out of Salt Lake City. I have - - I am just consumed with the thought that this guy was part and parcel in her disappearance and death. What do we know, Jim Kirkwood? What do these journals reveal?

JIM KIRKWOOD, KTKK (via telephone): After you get past the disgusting perversion and look at a couple of statements he made, Nancy -- for example, where he said several times he hopes nothing happens to her. That kind of remark is not something a person would say unless he knew Josh was planning something. At least, that`s my opinion of it.

GRACE: You know, he is refusing to talk to police. He`s not talking to anybody. His obsession goes to the point, Clark Goldband -- well, you know what? I`ll let you explain it, Clark. I want to hear about how he would go into their dirty laundry and how he would buy her pantyhose.

CLARK GOLDBAND, NANCY GRACE PRODUCER: Yes, Nancy. This is in over 2,300 pages of these diaries. We`ve gone through every single page. And there are a few occasions -- more than a few occasions where Powell writes of going through Susan Powell`s underwear drawer, taking pairs of underwear and using it later to masturbate.

He also talks about trying to find Susan Powell`s hair and making a hair collection out of Susan Powell`s hair that he also, it would appear, assists him in masturbation.

The stockings you just brought up a few moments ago -- Steven Powell writes that he apparently purchases multiple copies of the same type of stockings. And that`s because he gave a pair to Susan and kept a spare for himself. Then after Susan would wear the stockings, Steve Powell apparently would swap those stockings out, take those stockings back to his home and use those stockings also to assist him in gratifying himself.

GRACE: OK, let me get this straight. So -- put Goldband up there. So the father-in-law, who`s sitting behind bars right now, refusing to talk, would go to the store, buy her hose, her pantyhose, go home, take her worn -- her pantyhose she wore the day before that she hadn`t washed yet and take them home to masturbate with them and then replace them with the newly purchased hose. And she never knew about it, right?

GOLDBAND: That`s what Steve Powell writes in these diaries.

GRACE: All right. Clark, explain to me about these photos, the photos he has of her. He acts -- and I`ve read these journals. He really believes, or says he believes, that she knows he`s taking these -- there`s her leg, for Pete`s sake.

Explain. There`s one in here that I just love. It`s of her and she`s holding her pet bird. Tell me about that photo, please.

GOLDBAND: Yes, Nancy. There are over 100 photos throughout these 2,300 pages. A lot of them are actually cut out from other places and pasted inside the journal. And next to virtually all of these pictures are handwritten captions that Steve Powell writes underneath the pictures.

And as you were just alluding to a few moments ago, Steve Powell seems to take her non-action towards him, or just not even being aware of his feelings towards her -- Steve Powell takes that as, Perhaps she`s playing hard to get, perhaps she doesn`t want to upset her husband...

GRACE: OK, wait a minute! Hold on!

GOLDBAND: I know she wants me...

GRACE: I`m missing a page here. He says -- this is the one with the parakeet. Let me see that shot because you`ve got the other page, Clark. "On Sunday afternoon I taped Susan as she" -- she probably didn`t know she was being taped, by the way. He was probably hanging upside-down out the window.

"Afternoon -- I taped her as she played with a parakeet, Verde (ph). It was sweet to watch her bring Verde to her lips to kiss him. I`m reviewing the tape" -- freak! "I`m reviewing the tape. I get the impression she starts out self-conscious. She kisses him in such a way" -- what? What`s the rest of that? She kisses him in such a way that what?

GOLDBAND: Nancy, I`m going to have to just take a moment to track that down in my notes. There are 2,300 pages.

GRACE: OK, because...

GOLDBAND: And I will find that for you.

GRACE: ... he goes on to say the picture of her with the parakeet, kissing the pet bird, "brought me to such a strong orgasm. The night before this video was taken, Susan and I were in bodily contact for nearly two hours."

GOLDBAND: Yes.

GRACE: Clark...

GOLDBAND: Yes.

GRACE: ... he sat on the sofa next to her.

GOLDBAND: Yes, Nancy. I have found that in my notes. Yes, that`s correct.

GRACE: Go ahead. Explain.

GOLDBAND: And Steve Powell, as you were saying, just sitting next to her on the sofa, or something like that. Susan Powell also apparently cut Steven Powell`s hair from time to time. In fact, by the looks of what`s in these journals, he was excited each time she would cut his hair.

And he would stress and write over and over about what he should wear during the haircut, that -- there was one time I read he took off his top shirt and was just sitting in a white undershirt, and was wondering if Susan noticed, you know, how strong and how he looked and how special it was.

And any incidental contact that may have been made during these haircuts was just analyzed over and over, over scores of these pages, Nancy. Every little movement was painstakingly analyzed by Steven Powell in his own mind.

GRACE: How did the journals surface, Jim Kirkwood?

KIRKWOOD: When the search warrant was executed on the home where Steve -- where -- Steven Powell`s home -- Josh Powell had moved there, from Utah to Washington. The police got a search warrant looking for information about Josh and Susan Powell and her disappearance. And in the process, they discovered all this information about his pedophilia, voyeurism stuff. And that`s where it all came from.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "I would like female companionship, but I am still madly in love with Susan. I would rather look at a video or picture of her than have a social life. I spread out my collection of pictures of Susan, and I could not fit them all on the king-size bed in this room -- compose them in such a way as to make it appear that she was kissing, licking or biting me."

POWELL: When Josh actually became aware of it, I said, Well, Josh, it really was Susan who came on to me.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "I was so in lust with her that I began going to her laundry and retrieving her panties to check out her scent. The fox is in the henhouse, as they say. I know some people would think I am strange or even sick for collecting articles of Susan`s lingerie, but try this one on for size. I just went to my Susan drawer and sniffed a small wad of her hair I took from her hairbrush. I also found some of her hair in a trash bucket in the bathroom. I have been collecting her hair to create a growing and beautiful piece of her actual person."

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GRACE: I`m voting unanimously for creepy, all right? But creepy doesn`t carry the day. Is this sex-obsessed father-in-law obsessed with Susan Cox Powell, who many of us believe to be dead at the hands of his son and possibly him...

We are taking your calls. Is he involved in her death and disappearance and the murders of her two little boys?

Joining me right now, a special, Anne Bremner. She is the attorney for Chuck and Judy Cox, parents of Susan Cox Powell. Anne, you have handled so many, many high-profile cases. This one has completely broken my heart. I can hardly even prepare for the...

ANNE BREMNER, DEFENSE ATTORNEY: I know.

GRACE: ... discussion of this case because of those two little boys` murder. I find it entirely possible that he is involved, the father-in-law is involved in Susan`s murder.

BREMNER: Let me start here, Nancy -- and thank you and your show for how supportive you`ve been of the family, my clients, because they`ve been through just -- I mean, we just feel like the hits keep coming. It`s so horrific (ph). Susan`s missing, and of course, the little boys with the hatchet and fire and the inferno. And now this. I mean, it`s just one thing after another in this case.

But I think Chuck and Judy have always thought that Steven could be involved in Susan`s disappearance. And the fact is, these journals underscore creepy, I mean, massively creepy, also potential involvement.

And I can talk to you about a couple of other factors, if you have time on this right now, or we can come back to it.

GRACE: Yes, tell me.

BREMNER: But there are -- there are accounts that he was in Utah around the time of this, quote, unquote, "camping trip" at midnight with the 2 and 4-year-old. And also that he called in sick after that. And he came, you know, all the way from Washington to Utah, and then, basically, was on the phone a number of those days with Josh.

And so Chuck has always maintained -- and Chuck is ex-law enforcement -- that Steven knows a lot and/or was involved in Susan`s disappearance.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "My erotic experiences with my beautiful daughter- in-law. I couldn`t wait to see her in the buff. I wanted to make love to her right then, but she was just a tease and I her clown. She`d put her makeup on and dress to kill. I`d stare at her and never get my fill. I think I have supplied all of her pantyhose in the last year. She said she runs out before she can launder them."

"My personal motivations are, one, I like knowing what she has under her skirts. Two, I have exact duplicates of her pantyhose, which enables me to pull ones she has worn from her laundry and replace them with no trace. And three, I love doing anything for her, and this is all the more pleasant to give her because it is so personal and intimate. I don`t know if I dare buy pantyhose for her birthday now, ever since I told her I was in love with her.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GRACE: We are taking your calls. These personal diaries have emerged in the search of Steven Powell`s home. This is the father-in-law of missing woman Susan Cox Powell, the mother of two little boys, ages 4 and 2. Is the father-in-law and his creepy sex obsession with his own daughter-in-law part and parcel of her death and disappearance?

To Aaron Brehove, body language expert. You have observed him, especially when he was speaking on "GMA." What do you make of him, Aaron Brehove?

AARON BREHOVE, BODY LANGUAGE EXPERT: What we see a lot when we`re looking at the journals and when we also listen to him in the video, he`s consistently -- he makes statements and then goes back and (ph) something else.

Like, he said that he -- Susan said that he was a pedophile and didn`t want him around his (SIC) kids. And then a few pages later, says that he wants to be with her and thinks that she wants to be with him. He does this a lot with the video, as well. He`s kind of going forward and saying something else. And I think he understands that he doesn`t love her, but he tries to run over it and tries to really push forward.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: "As soon as she would go into that bathroom to pee, I would grab my mirror and dive for the floor. But what I`ve written about Susan represents the first time I`ve mentioned fetishes and what might be considered sociopathic. I mean, who looks under a bathroom door with a mirror? I tend to think a lot of guys do.

"I won`t give up on her, unless fate somehow separates us by geographic or other means. It has been a year since I saw her. I despair that I may never see her again.

"I would like female companionship, but I am still madly in love with Susan. I would rather look at a video or picture of her than have a social life. It amazes me that I have not seen her or spoken to her for a year- and-a-half, and yet I am still totally captivated by her.

"Susan was my fantasy come true. She was the yin to my yang, she was the exhibitionist, and I the voyeur. She was the female answer to my sexual proclivities.

"God, I miss her. "

(END VIDEO CLIP)

NANCY GRACE, HLN HOST: That is total B.S. When the father-in-law finally confronts Susan Powell, Susan Cox-Powell now missing and believed to be dead, her two little boys also dead, she becomes angry, cuts off all contact with him for well over a year, won`t have anything to do with him. Reports what he says to her husband, Powell`s son. She wanted nothing to do with him.

She complained to her parents, to her sister, to many others that the father-in-law was creepy when it came to her.

Unleash the lawyers, Kelly Saindon, Alex Sanchez, Peter Odom.

Peter, you do know why the father-in-law, Steve Powell, is currently in jail, right?

PETER ODOM, DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Nancy, apparently it`s for a voyeur episode with the young girl across the street from where he lived. Yes. So I mean this is not something new.

GRACE: Two little girls ages 8 and 9.

ODOM: Yes.

GRACE: He used a long lens to capture the two little girls urinating in their family bathroom.

ODOM: So this is --

GRACE: OK. This is who we`re talking about.

ODOM: Right.

GRACE: OK, weigh in, Alex Sanchez. Right now he has not been named a person of interest in the murder of Susan Powell. There`s no body, but you heard what was just laid out by Anne Bremner that he travels all the way to Utah at the time Susan Powell goes missing.

ALEX SANCHEZ, DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Listen, this guy`s a repulsive character, I`m not even going to try to defend his character. But I want to ask a simple question, I think the viewers would agree with me on this. If this guy was so obsessed with this woman, and was so much in love with her, wouldn`t he be the one person that would want to keep her safe and alive? So that he could continue to satiate his sexual gratifications?

GRACE: You know what? It`s interesting that you`re saying that, but I`m going to give you an unexpected answer, and let me point out that all of his sex gratification was achieved without her being there in person, but your question is, isn`t he the one person that would want her alive, that`s not always necessarily true, is it, Dr. Bethany?

BETHANY MARSHALL, PSYCHOANALYST, AUTHOR OF "DEALBREAKERS": No, you`re right, Nancy, because he`s the one person who would want her dead, because she had moved away and he no longer had knowledge of her whereabouts, so if he kills her and he stores the body somewhere then she is constantly, consistently available to her -- to him. So of course he would want her in that state of repose so that he can fantasize about her and make of her what he wants.

You know, Nancy, he has four of the five perversions -- pedophilia, exhibitionism, voyeurism, which is looking at somebody who doesn`t know you`re looking at them, frauderism, is rubbing up against an unsuspecting partner in public. He did that through the lingerie, taking pieces of her hair. She was the air he breathed. He`s very primitive. People this disturbed are primitive. They have the mental operations of an infant.

Infants -- for infants, mommy and baby are one. Mommy is the air I breathe, I want to merge with her and be one with her, and then he`s obsessed with her with erotic overtones. So if he had her in the freezer, in the basement, under the bed, that would be the perfect scenario for someone like them because -- him because he could then fantasize and have sexual activity with her all the time. And she`s dead, she wouldn`t even know about it.

GRACE: Everybody, we are taking your calls. To Joanie in Massachusetts. Hi, Joanie, what`s your question, dear?

JOANIE, CALLER FROM MASSACHUSETTS: Hi, Nancy. I so admire you. Thank you for taking my calls. I was wondering, do you know if the parents are still in touch with the social workers that was taking care of the boys?

GRACE: Man, Joanie in Massachusetts. That`s a whole another can of worms.

To you, Anne Bremner, a lot of discussion that the social workers or DFACS, Department of Family and Children Services, could have prevented the murders of the two little boys.

ANNE BREMNER, DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Right.

GRACE: I know there was a social worker that brought them to the home and then the moment they got in, the son, Josh Powell, hacked the boys to death with a hatchet and set the place on fire.

And another thing, before I lose this thought, Alex Sanchez, you were saying, isn`t he, the father-in-law, obsessed with her, the one person to would protect her? He didn`t protect her from his own son, Josh Powell. Just hold that thought.

All right. Back to you, Anne Bremner. What`s the status of the social worker, DFACS?

BREMNER: Well, right now, the social worker is just acting on, you know, what she was told to do in the case. There`s a claim for damages that we filed right now alleging that this should not have been unsupervised visitation between Josh and those kids. And they need to -- they really need to change the focus in Washington state from reuniting families at any cost to the safety and welfare of the kids.

GRACE: You know you`re so right. I want to go to Mary Ellen O`Toole, PhD, former senior FBI profiler, author of "Dangerous Instincts."

Mary Ellen, thank you for being with us. I can`t wait to hear your thoughts, Mary Ellen O`Toole.

MARY ELLEN O`TOOLE, PHD, RETIRED SENIOR FBI PROFILER, AUTHOR OF "DANGEROUS INSTINCTS": You`re welcome. After reading all of this and following this case pretty closely, I think there`s certainly every possibility that the father, if not directly involved, was aware of what happened to his daughter-in-law. But when I look at what Josh did in terms of those little boys and himself, the way he coped with his particular situation was to act out with extreme violence.

Extremely inappropriate but that`s what he chose to do. So it makes sense to me behaviorally that the murder of his wife would certainly be something that he would resort to, that`s part of his repertoire of behavior is if -- to treat people like objects, and if you`re not going along with me, or if I can`t have you nobody will have you.

GRACE: Alexis Weed, I find it very compelling that the father-in-law obsessed with his own daughter-in-law, now missing, her children dead, traveled all the way to Utah at the very time she goes missing.

ALEXIS WEED, NANCY GRACE PRODUCER: Right, Nancy, we also have to look at the fact that Steven Powell took off those two days of work, the 8th and 9th of December after Susan went missing. Why was he gone? Why did he call in and have a family emergency, so he told work? That`s why he was not there.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I think she is very aware that I have taken secret video clips of her both at home and at the mall where I would occasionally wait for her to arrive at work just to see her and film her.

I am 90 percent certain that even when I was filming her secretly, she was aware. Many things suggest to me that she was very much aware, as I used a mirror under the bathroom door to admire her most private moments. In the meantime, I was looking at some pictures of her this evening and printed a couple of frames from the last few of video I took of her.

I have even told her I was in love with her. I have now doubt that bothers Josh, but I can`t take those words back and maybe they affect her at times, but maybe someday she will come back to me because she knows I love her. I know Susan was in love with me, but when I told her I loved her, she came unglued, told Josh and wouldn`t speak to me for months.

She was commenting that she did not want her boys over here with me because I am a pedophile. I would be devastated or I`d to find out Susan was dead from any cause. I am still so in love with her, and I can barely function. I wish I could tell her that. I wish I knew she was as much in love with me.

I spread out my collection of pictures of Susan and I could not fit them all on the king sized bed in this room, composed them in such a way as to make it appear that she was kissing, licking or biting me.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GRACE: We are taking your calls. For those of you just joining us now, under scrutiny, Steven Powell, the father-in-law of Susan Cox-Powell, a stock broker, a 28-year-old young mother of two little boys ages 2 and 4.

That night, the dad, Josh Powell, says he`s taking the children camping, in the middle of the night on a Sunday night in sub-zero temperatures. It`s snowing outside. When they get home, Susan is gone, never seen again. The children later tell authorities that mommy is in the mines, that mommy is in the trunk of the car and they draw pictures to depict those two scenarios.

Later Josh Powell, still not charged with the murder of his wife, hacks his children to death and sets the home on fire. After the Department of Family and Children Services wants to keep the family together.

We are faking your calls, to Greg Kading, former LAPD detective, author of "Murder Rap."

Greg, after reading his diaries and his obsession with this woman, you, after working the streets for so long in L.A. as a cop, know how quickly sex obsession can turn to hatred when -- when the person is rejected, Greg?

GREG KADING, FORMER LAPD DETECTIVE, AUTHOR, "MURDER RAP": Yes, and it is very interesting that he had a conversation about his obsession with her with his son. And his son in turn kind of excuses the father and says, well, we`re just a crazy family. Well, it`s very clear that the son probably turned his rage then against the wife for the actions that the dad was responsible for.

So it`s very interesting. But what`s most disturbing about this, Nancy, is that he gets out next year. And this is not a man that`s fit for society.

GRACE: Kelly Saindon, right now the police are not naming him a person of interest in the murder or the death of Susan Powell. In fact murder charges have never been brought, there is no body, but Kelly, isn`t it true murder can be prosecuted even without a body?

KELLY SAINDON, FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY: Absolutely. You don`t always have to have a body. The fact that she was gone, the testimony of the children alone should be enough to presume something nefarious happened, that she`s not going to resurface. And this whole idea that she ran away with someone, there`s nothing credible behind that.

As creepy as the dad is, what Josh Powell did to his kids in the house, I would think authorities would presume she`s dead and they would have a case. The issue is, are they only focusing on Josh and not on the crazy dad?

GRACE: Well, you know, Anne Bremner, Kelly is making a great point. What was his excuse for being in the area at the time Susan Cox-Powell goes missing?

BREMNER: Well, this came from a co-worker actually, Nancy, and he really hasn`t commented on what he was doing there. But he had a van that belonged to the Department of Corrections of all institutions, that he`d worked for. And this is a person that has reported about his whereabouts when he said. One other thing is, he didn`t act in any way surprised that she was missing when it hit the news reports. And he`d never mentioned it before it hit the news.

GRACE: I want to go to Dr. Bill Manion, medical examiner, joining us out of Philadelphia this evening.

Dr. Manion, thanks for being with us.

DR. BILL MANION, M.D., MEDICAL EXAMINER, BURLINGTON COUNTY, NJ: My pleasure.

GRACE: Dr. Manion, if Susan Cox-Powell`s body was found, now, would we still be able to get DNA off of the body if it`s there, of course? Could it still be identified as Steven Powell`s?

MANION: Yes, we would be able to get DNA from the skeleton, the marrow, but the body`s probably been completely skeletonized now. The only thing left would be bones and hair. And I -- if there were clothing there, there -- you may be able to get the DNA off the clothing, if somebody had cut themselves or had left a stain there or something like that.

The other thing we checked, of course, if we found the skeleton is the jaw -- lower jaw and upper jaw for the teeth and fillings that could also be used to identify her. But I don`t -- there`s no tissue left now, the skin`s gone and her body is just a skeleton right now.

GRACE: Unless of course the body were frozen.

Everyone, we are taking your calls. After the extensive diaries, thousands of pages, written by father-in-law, Steve Powell, many court watchers believe he is in some way responsible for the murder of his daughter-in- law, Susan Powell.

So, Jim Kirkwood, KTKK, what more needs to be done? Let`s just assume we`re never going to find her body.

JIM KIRKWOOD, NEWS SHOW HOST, KTKK: Well, there`s a lot of criticism of the prosecutor and the police over here because there has been no charges filed. And Tim Gill, the county attorney, basically said that a defense attorney could just tear the case apart, which I`m not certain is true, but that`s his position and that`s why it was never filed.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Susan did not take well to my revelation that I had been in love with her for months. She told Josh and when I called him, he began with, "I guess insanity runs in our family."

I acknowledge that this thing for Susan is like alcoholism. It stops me in my tracks at all hours of the day. I frequently want nothing more than to lay in bed with my eyes closed and think about her.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GRACE: OK. To Dr. Bethany Marshall, psychoanalyst and author of "Dealbreakers."

Of course, again, Josh Powell is the only named person of interest in the disappearance of Susan Powell, although these diaries certainly, certainly in my mind are probative. What does it mean to you, Bethany?

MARSHALL: Well, it means to me that you have a man who`s perverse, primitive, has a fixation on her. Wants to know where she is at every hour of the day. I really think we have to think about at some point where -- what are his activities going to be when he gets out of prison? Is he going to fixate on somebody else or is he going to continue to fixate on her and is that going to give us some clues about where she might be?

GRACE: Dr. Bethany, the reality is he says in his own words he`d rather lay in bed and fantasize about her. You know, she`s not there. Than anything else. So what about her dead body? What would he do with that, Dr. Bethany?

MARSHALL: Well, I mean he seems to feel that whatever is in his mind is in her mind. If he wants her, she wants him back. So he seems to be well able to imbue her with characteristics that are not true of her. So if she was dead, that wouldn`t really very much matter to him. For instance, when he puts the mirror under the bathroom door so he can see her urinate, he`s not thinking about what she`s thinking, he`s thinking about the perverse act of watching her.

So watching her in repose like necrophilia is going to be more important than whether she`s alive.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I spent some time Saturday night reading Susan`s journal. I scanned all of the journals I could get my hands on from her first entries as a preteen to her entries just before I met her.

Funny, I don`t feel guilty in the least about reading her journals.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GRACE: I`m reading more of the journals or so much of it I can even read on air. In the middle of this graphic entry he says, I have contemplated the thought of being invited into the delivery room when she has her child. It would be an incredible turn-on. I`d love to be the cameraman.

All right, Peter Odom, weigh in.

ODOM: Nancy, you`ve got 2,334 pages of expressions of lust, adulation, love. I don`t know how anybody could suggest that there`s anything violent there. There`s not. Certainly, though, once Josh found out this connection --

GRACE: He was stalking her. He was stalking her.

ODOM: Well, you -- that`s your -- that your word. That`s your word. That`s not his.

GRACE: He admits he puts a mirror under the bathroom door to watch her urinate. You don`t think that`s stalking?

ODOM: Again. Not a word of violence in there, Nancy. This is adulation and lust.

GRACE: That`s stalking. That`s not adulation. That is a crime.

ODOM: Nancy --

GRACE: She is a sex victim.

ODOM: But it`s not violence. There`s one person that has shown a tendency for violence. That`s Josh. And all your talk about how he must be responsible, that`s rank speculation and it`s purely based on nothing.

GRACE: That`s not what I said.

OK. Agree or disagree, Anne Bremner?

BREMNER: Well, the apple doesn`t fall very far from the tree. And when looking at this stalking behavior about her, even his obssessiveness, you know, who knows, he didn`t even have journal entries during the time that she went missing. They`ve stopped before she went missing and then they picked up again many months later.

And the fact of the matter is, this is a guy who was creepy with a capital K. And he was creepy toward her. And he was obsessed throughout all of this. And I have all kinds of records about Steven Powell in terms of the way he raised his own kids and the way he reacted to her.

We had to sue him over the journals. And we`ve seen all kinds of things with him. But the fact of the matter is, like Josh said, maybe insanity does run in the family. That`s what he said to his dad.

GRACE: Anne Bremner, high-profile lawyer out of Seattle, representing Susan`s parents.

Let`s stop and remember, Army Staff Sergeant Alex French IV, 31, Milledgeville, Georgia, killed, Afghanistan. Bronze Star, Purple Heart, two Army Commendation medals, Army Achievement medal, also served the Navy, sheriff`s deputy back home. Worked for Department of Corrections. Leaves behind parents Alex III, Gwendolyn, sisters Latoya, Laquita.

Alex French IV, American hero.

Thanks to our guests but especially to you for being with us. Dr. Drew up next.

Everyone, I`ll see you tomorrow night, 8:00 sharp Eastern. And until then, good night, friend.

I can't help but keep thinking she stayed because of her young sons.  How very cruel for her to have worried not only about her own safety, but about their welfare the whole time.  I can't imagine what she'd think if she knew the cruel way Josh murdered the boys.  Maybe it's best she never knew.  JMHO

Attorney for Cox family to address West Valley City Council
First Published 16 minutes ago • Updated 16 minutes ago (August 19, 2012)

An attorney representing the family of Susan Cox Powell on Tuesday will ask the West Valley City Council to release documents related to the missing woman’s case.
 
Anne Bremner, a Washington attorney who represents Powell’s parents, Chuck and Judy Cox, is set to argue her appeal at a 6:30 p.m. meeting at West Valley City Hall. The Coxes won’t be in attendance, she said.

Bremner last month filed an appeal with the West Valley City Council after the police department and city manager rejected her request for "any and all investigative files" related to Powell’s 2009 disappearance.
 
"I hope they grant my request," she said Friday, noting its her third request to the city for information. "We want all the records, the full measure of all the records, so that we can find Susan and understand the depth and breadth of the investigation. I personally don’t want Chuck and Judy to have to continue to hear jarring and upsetting information from the case piecemeal via sporadic public disclosures and via the media. They need to hear the remainder all at once. "
 
Bremner requested the records from the West Valley City Police Department in April and filed a similar request with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office at the same time.
 
West Valley Police Sgt. Mike Powell, who is no relation to the missing woman, denied Bremner’s request in May. City Manager Wayne Pyle upheld that denial in June.

Bremner said that Pierce County told her it wanted to delay a response until after it finished prosecution of Steven Powell, Susan’s father-in-law, on voyeurism charges and pending a lawsuit filed on behalf of his victims. Steve Powell was sentenced in June.
 
In the appeal sent to the West Valley City Council, the governing body that hears records appeals, Bremner asked for all incident and investigative reports, forensic and evidence reports, witness and suspect statements, audio, video and surveillance recordings, photographs and reports and communication from any other law enforcement agencies.
 
She will argue the documents are essential for preparing a potential lawsuit and has promised not to release information received to the general public. Bremner has said that releasing the material will not compromise any investigation, violate anyone’s right to privacy and is allowed under Victims’ Rights Acts in both states.
 
"Release of the information we are seeking would further the interests of justice because it would allow us to better represent our clients, the victim in this case," Bremner wrote in her original April request.

City attorneys will have the opportunity to respond to Bremner’s arguments at Tuesday’s meeting.

West Valley City Council considers releasing Susan Powell documents
Posted on: 9:07 pm, August 21, 2012, by Ben Winslow, updated on: 09:44pm, August 21, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Gilmore told the council that they were not investigating a case to bring charges against anyone specifically, but insisted that any release of records would jeopardize the investigation. With releases of documents in Washington state that revealed police were focusing on Josh Powell in a “homicide,” West Valley City has been criticized for not making an arrest.
 ::snipping2::
The West Valley City Council has five business days to respond to Bremner’s request for records. They could give them to her, requesting that she not make them public. Mayor pro-tem Corey Rushton said after an executive session they would request more records from West Valley City police before making a decision.
 
As the council deliberated, Bremner told FOX 13 she was probably going to have to sue to get answers.
 
“Yes, 100 percent sure,” she said. “I don’t know what else we can do.”

West Valley City denies attorney's request to release police records in Susan Powell case
Published: Tuesday, Aug. 28 2012 6:05 p.m. MDT

WEST VALLEY CITY — Citing concern for an ongoing criminal investigation, city officials Tuesday denied an appeal by the family of Susan Cox Powell to release documents related to the police investigation into her disappearance.

But Seattle attorney Anne Bremner has promised to file a civil lawsuit against the city if the records are not released.

West Valley City Councilman Corey Rushton announced the city's decision after a special closed session of the council Tuesday.

"After viewing them, it was very apparent to us that releasing them at this time could reasonably be expected to hamper an ongoing investigation," Rushton said.

The City Council reached its decision unanimously, he said.

Rushton declined to comment on the threat of a lawsuit against the city or the state of West Valley City's investigation into Powell's disappearance, instead saying the City Council was only concerned with Bremner's public records request.

Project stems from the Powell boys' tragic deaths
In the months before 7-year-old Charlie and 5-year-old Braden Powell were killed by their father, they spent time with Pierce County sheriff’s detectives.
September 7, 2012

In the months before 7-year-old Charlie and 5-year-old Braden Powell were killed by their father, they spent time with Pierce County sheriff’s detectives.

Those same detectives, in the spirit of honoring the boys’ memory, now are working to help outfit children who are in between homes without basic items they need.

“A lot of the detectives worked with the children,” detective Sgt. Brian Lund said. “The same folks that had dealt with the boys and interacted with the boys were now in a position where they were recovering their bodies. I think it was something that all of us saw and wanted to make something positive out of it.”

During the investigation following the Powell boys’ deaths, detectives found a poster of a dinosaur with Charlie’s name on it.

That became the inspiration for the project started by five detectives in March. They call the project Charlie’s Dinosaur.

“We thought using that picture would be a good way to kind of give back to other kids, using their memory,” Lund said.

They’re in the process of making tags with pictures of the dinosaur drawing to attach to the backpacks they hand out with the supplies, and they use the outline of the picture as a logo.

The group fills each bag with things such as clothing, shampoo and toys.
 ::snipping2::
Charlie’s Dinosaur has given out about 50 of the packs so far, many with stuffed animals. The bags go to places like Child Protective Services and the YWCA.

The last of the packs given to the YWCA went to two boys earlier this week, volunteer and resource coordinator Caitlin White said. They’ve handed out at least 10, she said, most to families at their domestic-violence shelter.

“They don’t have what they consider home,” White said. “It takes the sting away from having to leave certain things behind.”

The detectives work on the project during their own time, which has been difficult to find given the 17 homicides they’ve had to investigate already this year, compared to 11 total in 2011.

“It’s hard to get any off time when you’re doing overtime as well,” Lund said.

Working on the project breaks up some of that tragedy.

“Those boys knew our detectives,” sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said. “The detectives, instead of always seeing these horrible homicide scenes, they get to do a little good.”

You're welcome Sister.  I hope there can be some good to come out of this and I hope those that are suffering from the sadness and grief of the Powell brothers deaths can reconcile and find peace.  So many lives have been touched by this tragedy.  I don't think it's a matter of moving on or closure, but more of learning to live with the events and finding ways to counter the evil with acts of good.

Tribune requests Powell investigation documents from WVC
First Published 1 hour ago • Updated 31 minutes ago (September 18, 2012)

West Valley City • For the second time in a month, the City Council heard an appeal asking that it review certain records in the Susan Cox Powell case to see if they are properly being withheld from the public.
 
The Salt Lake Tribune filed the appeal challenging denials by the police department and city manager earlier this summer to release five records in the missing mother’s case.

The council met briefly Tuesday in executive session following a public hearing on the appeal and Mayor Mike Winder said afterward only that a decision would be forthcoming.
 
The records requested include: recordings or transcripts of interviews with Josh Powell, Susan’s husband; forensic reports of blood found in the Powell’s West Valley City home and of possible charred remains found during a search in Utah’s West Desert; GPS data from a tracking device placed on Josh Powell’s minivan; and reports regarding vehicles Josh Powell rented after his wife’s disappearance.
 
The Tribune had also requested records of any service calls to the Powell home between Jan. 1, 2007, and Dec. 6, 2009, the day Susan Cox Powell was last known to have been at the home. But City Manager Wayne Pyle previously informed the newspaper that the city has no record of any calls being made to the Powell’s home.

On Tuesday, Pyle and Clint Gilmore, legal adviser to the West Valley City Police Department, both urged the council to deny the appeal because the investigation is ongoing.

West Valley City denies appeal for release of records in Powell case
First Published 56 minutes ago • Updated 44 minutes ago (September 25, 2012)

West Valley City • The City Council on Tuesday denied a request from The Salt Lake Tribune to release certain records in the case of missing mother Susan Cox Powell.
 
Council members released an order Tuesday evening upholding City Manager Wayne Pyle’s denial of the request. The order says release of the records reasonably could be expected to interfere with an investigation, create a danger of depriving a person of a right to a fair trial or disclose the identity of a source.
 ::snipping2::
But Tribune editor Nate Carlisle told the council earlier this month that the issue is not whether an investigation is ongoing, but rather if releasing the documents would "reasonably" interfere with that investigation.
 
Carlisle told the council that, previous denials aside, the council still has an obligation under the state’s records law to independently review the documents and determine if they should be made public.
 
"If you don’t take that look, you are just taking the police department’s word for it," Carlisle said.

Most of the requested documents related directly to Josh Powell, Carlisle said, and there is not a "good reason to protect records that relate directly to Josh Powell."
 ::snipping2::
Carlisle earlier this month gave the council a copy of Utah Supreme Court ruling that found a government entity could not withhold documents merely because of concerns about their impact on an ongoing or future investigation.
 
With each day that passes, it is less and less likely that the records are going to be pertinent and reasonably interfere with an investigation, Carlisle said.
 
But council member Steve Buhler said earlier this month whatever Josh Powell said and did "did not die with him" and the records may be important to any case brought against other individuals.

Chuck Cox fights Josh Powell’s siblings for millions in insurance money

TACOMA, Wash. —
Siblings of Josh Powell are going to court for millions in life insurance policies taken out on missing woman Susan Cox Powell and her slain boys as the Cox family fights to stop them from claiming the money.

The Coxes said they’re not fighting for the $3.5 million because they want it for themselves, but because they don’t think the Powell family has rights to it.

Cox family to fight for Powell insurance money in court
Posted on: 7:29 am, October 25, 2012,

Siblings of Josh Powell are trying to collect on insurance policies Powell took out on his wife and family.

Powell took out multimillion dollar insurance policies on his wife, missing West Valley City mother Susan Cox Powell, and their family before he murdered his children and took his own life.

The siblings are going to court to collect on more than $3.5 million in life insurance policies taken out on Susan and her two sons, Charlie and Braden.

Cox family fights Powell siblings for insurance money
Updated: 10/25 6:13 pm

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A legal battle is brewing in a Washington court over the life insurance money left by Josh Powell. On one hand, Powell's siblings including Alina and Michael Powell claim the $2.5 million dollar policy should be theirs.

But Chuck and Judy Cox, the parents of Susan Cox Powell believe it is rightfully theirs.

"We had no idea it (policy) existed," says Chuck Cox.

Powell's younger sister and brothers were named beneficiaries.

"Josh had made recent changes in October and December (2011)," says Cox.

That was about two to four months before he murdered his two children and then set his Washington state home on fire.

Cox knew Josh had a one million life insurance policy but was unaware of this amended policy.

But in this latest version Susan who had already disappeared was left off.

"He had taken my daughter off as a beneficiary which is odd because she paid for the policy too," Cox says.

I am neither a life insurance expert nor an attorney, but I have been led to believe that a spouse can not be taken off as beneficiary on a life insurance policy of the other spouse without the beneficiary spouse signing a release.  In other words, Susan would have had to have signed an acknowledgement that she realized she was relinquishing rights to Josh's life insurance policy.  Since she was missing and not declared dead, that couldn't have happened.   ::CowboySmiley::

Another interesting twist - since Susan has not been declared dead, and we know Josh is, she technically survived him and all of the estate passes to her. And then to her family. What a tangled web we weave . . . .

Susan Powell disappearance: Ann Rule book gives titillating tidbits
Posted:   11/29/2012 08:38:36 AM PST
November 29, 2012 4:43 PM GMTUpdated:   11/29/2012 08:41:27 AM PST

Veteran crime writer Ann Rule provides a fast-read take on the disappearance of Utah mom Susan Cox Powell in her newest book, "Fatal Friends, Deadly Neighbors and Other True Cases."

For those who have closely followed the Powell story, there is little new information beyond some titillating tidbits about Josh Powell and his father Steven. Among them: Josh Powell crashed his future wife's bridal shower dressed as a woman - skirt, makeup, etc. Guests didn't think it was funny. Judy Cox, Susan's mother, said the incident added to their early concern about their daughter's fiance. But the marriage went ahead as planned.

Another: Steven Powell apparently followed his son and daughter-in-law to a Costco in December 2003, as they prepared to leave for Utah, and surreptitiously filmed Susan, an escapade he later described in detail in his personal journal.
 ::snipping2::
Rule, who lives in Washington, devotes 156 pages to the Powell story in the book, which appeared in bookstores Tuesday and also chronicles eight other stories.

The Powell section includes a 16-page photo spread, including wedding photos that Susan's father, Chuck Cox, salvaged from the ruins of the Washington rental home that Josh Powell set fire on Feb. 5, killing himself and sons Charlie, 7, and Braden, 5.
 
In an interview Wednesday, Cox said he was able to retrieve four or five grocery bags of photos that had been stored in a bedroom at the destroyed home. Some were singed and some were water damaged, but many were in remarkably good shape, he said.

He has not yet read Rule's book, but said he expects it will be "a good book for somebody who hasn't heard a lot of the detail. Somebody that has been following it, not so much."

One new disclosure involves Chuck and Judy Cox. Rule writes that in the early evening of Dec. 7, 2009, Jennifer Graves, Josh's sister, was on the phone with the Coxes giving them the latest details in the search for the missing family. Josh happened to finally return Jennifer's call and Jennifer put him on a speaker phone so the Coxes could hear what he had to say.

"From his responses, he was hiding something, he had done something," Cox told The Salt Lake Tribune on Wednesday.

The bronze angel is meant to do in death what it could not do in life: look over and protect children.

On Monday, a 10,000-pound statue was erected at Woodbine Cemetery in Puyallup on a hill overlooking the resting place of Charlie and Braden Powell. The boys, ages 7 and 5, were killed by their father, Josh Powell, earlier this year during a supervised visit at his rented home in the Graham area.

“This is not just for Charlie and Braden; this is for all kids that are victims,” Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.

The angel sits atop a marble platform and invites visitors to place a white flower at the base. In scripted white letters, it proclaims itself “a place of love and healing for all those who have suffered the loss of a child.”

It will be officially unveiled Thursday during a 7 p.m. candlelight vigil to honor the lives of children who met violent ends. The public is invited.

Susan Powell Photos Seized From Father-in-law's Home Show Voyeuristic Images
12/06/12 06:37 PM ET EST

 ::snipping2::
The photos – some of which are sexually suggestive – were obtained under public records laws Thursday by The Associated Press, three years after Powell went missing.
 ::snipping2::
Steve Powell was not charged with any crimes related to images of Susan Powell, but the files show she was often the focus of his lens. In a folder labeled with her initials, SMP, there are images of her walking through parking lots or sitting in her car. It appears the photographer is taking the pictures from another vehicle.

Some images zoom closely to Susan Powell's crotch or her backside, including a set of photos taken through blinds as she's bending over and doing laundry. None of the pictures, which were found on a disc in Steve Powell's bedroom, show her naked.

The folder dedicated to Susan Powell contains nearly 4,500 images.

West Valley City police scale back search for Susan Powell
First Published 3 hours ago • Updated 19 minutes ago

On Thursday, the third anniversary of the disappearance of Susan Cox Powell from her West Valley City home, police said the investigation "continues to be active but has been scaled down."
 
West Valley City police Sgt. Mike Powell said in a news release that the number of full-time investigators assigned to the case has been reduced.

"Some investigative tasks remains to be completed as follow ups are coordinated," said Powell, who is not related to the missing woman.
 
"The department remains committed to this investigation," Powell added, noting there is still a $10,000 reward for information leading to Susan Powell’s whereabouts.
 
Anyone with information is encouraged to call the West Valley City Police Department at 801-840-4000.
 
In recent months, a spokesman for the city has said ongoing work on the case justifies their refusal to release records related to the investigation.

In Washington state, the Associated Press reported Wednesday it received a folder containing nearly 4,500 images of Susan Powell in response to a records request for evidence used at the voyeurism trial of Steve Powell, her father-in-law. Many of the images of Susan were taken without her knowledge and focused on her crotch and backside.

Thousands of photos seized of missing Utah mom
Disc obtained from father-in-law sheds light on case of missing woman
December 07, 2012

TACOMA, Wash. — Thousands of images seized from the home of Susan Powell's father-in-law show the missing Utah mother as she walks in public and sits in her car — apparently unaware that someone is taking her picture.

The photos — some of which are sexually suggestive — were obtained under public records laws Thursday by The Associated Press, three years after Powell went missing.

 ::snipping2::

Powell talks in his journals about taking lots of video of Susan during a trip to Silver Falls in 2009, and a folder of images from the trip shows only photos of her backside as she's walking.

In one entry, dated a few months before Susan Powell disappeared, Steve Powell wrote that he had just woken up "from a most pleasant dream about Susan." He described a sexually charged dream in which Susan asked him, "'Do you think I would make a good wife for you?'"

The road that winds through Puyallup’s Woodbine Cemetery was bumper to bumper Tuesday night, as people turned out into the cold to dedicate the graveyard’s new angel, and to remember angels of their own.

Among them were people who have lost children or other loved ones, and some who wanted to support those who had.

The cemetery’s bronze angel statue is meant to look over and protect the children buried there.

Among them are Charlie and Braden Powell, ages 7 and 5, who were killed by their father, Josh Powell, early this year during a supervised visit to the house where he was living near Graham.
 ::snipping2::
Community donations through Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers made the memorial possible. Bricks around the statue will eventually be inscribed with the names of children who have died unnaturally, sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said. They cost about $100 each, and many will be covered by leftover donations for the memorial and costs related to the Powell boys’ gravesites. Crime Stoppers will find a way to foot the rest, Troyer said.

The public will also be able to purchase bricks through the cemetery to show support and to remember loved ones, he added.

There are more than 100 of the statues around the world. They’re based on writer Richard Paul Evans’ novella “The Christmas Box,” about how strangers learned the value of love following a child’s death. Evans attended the dedication Thursday.

The public gathers at the statues Dec. 6 every year, a tradition that will be upheld at Woodbine.

“This is for everyone,” Cox said.

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Utah investigators handling the case of missing mother Susan Powell examined her father-in-law's cell phone, calendar and emails earlier this year.

Records obtained by The Associated Press show that the intensive effort began in April after a former co-worker of Steven Powell's said he had talked about traveling to Utah in the weeks close to when she went missing.

Utah investigators say that Steve Powell has not cooperated with the Susan Powell investigation, but that still didn't initially trigger a more thorough assessment of him. In fact, an investigator said in one email obtained by AP that they did not take Steve Powell's cell phone or mobile internet card during the 2011 search at his home.
 
In early April 2012, a co-worker of Steve Powell's went public with her recollection that he talked about going on a snowy camping trip with his son and grandchildren in Utah around the time Susan Powell disappeared. She had previously emailed authorities about that conversation.

 ::snipping2::
Despite the tumultuous year, this tragic family story has not yet ended.

Susan Powell remains missing and presumed dead. Steven Powell, 62, is scheduled to be released from custody in May. Two young girls who were the victims of Powell's voyeuristic habits when they lived next door to his Puyallup, Wash., home have filed a civil lawsuit against him. Trial for that suit is scheduled for 2014.

In yet more legal action, a guardian ad litem for Susan Powell filed a lawsuit on her behalf against the Washington Department of Social and Health Services alleging negligence in the deaths of her sons. A trial is scheduled for June.

Anne Bremner, the Seattle-based attorney for Chuck and Judy Cox, Susan Powell's parents, has threatened to file a civil lawsuit against West Valley City for not releasing all police records connected to the missing person/murder case. The West Valley Police Department has cut back on the number of people working the Susan Powell missing persons investigation but still considers the Powell case to be active.

Meanwhile, the legal wrangling continues over who should get the money from Josh and Susan Powell's life insurance policies: Josh Powell's siblings or Susan Powell's parents.

Grandparents of murdered Powell boys push for new law to protect children

OLYMPIA, Wash. —
After their grandchildren were killed by their father, Josh Powell, the parents of missing woman Susan Cox Powell are pushing for changes in how Washington state law handles custody cases.

On Friday, the Legislature held hearings for bill 5162, the Charlie-Braden Act, which would restrict or block visitation rights for someone who is the subject of a murder investigation.

The victims’ grandparents, Chuck and Judy Cox, said they believe the legislation could have changed the course of an investigation that ultimately led to Josh Powell killing himself and his two boys, 7-year-old Charlie and 5-year-old Braden Powell.

“Without this law, a surviving spouse is essentially able to achieve custody by murder,” said Chuck Cox.

Friday is the 1-year anniversary of the day a judge ordered Josh Powell to undergo a psychosexual evaluation, but at the same time gave him visitation rights with his two sons, who were living with the Coxes.

A few days later, Josh Powell killed the boys when they arrived at his home for a supervised visit.

Candlelight vigil to mark one year anniversary of Powell tragedy
Published: Monday, Feb. 4 2013 12:15 p.m. MST

WEST VALLEY CITY — Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of the most shocking — and most tragic — moment of the Josh Powell saga.

On Feb. 5, 2012, Powell killed himself and his two young sons, 5-year-old Braden Powell and 7-year-old Charlie Powell, and burned his Graham, Wash., rental house to the ground. The deaths came just four days after a Washington court denied restoring full custody of Powell's children to him and ordered him to undergo a psychosexual evaluation.

Powell is the chief suspect in the disappearance and presumed murder of his wife, Susan Cox Powell, in December of 2009 from their home in West Valley City. Her body has never been found.

A candlelight vigil marking the one-year anniversary of the horrific deaths of Charlie and Braden will be held Tuesday night at West View Park, 4100 S. 6000 West.

1-year vigil for boys killed in Graham, Wash.
Updated 9:10 pm, Tuesday, February 5, 2013

GRAHAM, Wash. (AP) — Several dozen relatives and community members gathered Tuesday for a candlelight vigil to mark the anniversary of the killings of two young boys, Charlie and Braden Powell.
 ::snipping2::
Following a prayer and a period of silence at the spot where Josh Powell's rental house once stood, Chuck Cox thanked those in attendance. He endorsed neighbors' plans to raise money to turn the vacant lot into a park or other gathering place "to bring happiness to the neighborhood."

Judy Cox said she thought the boys "would be excited about this, to know they are remembered."

The gathering took place near two crosses erected in memory of Charlie and Braden and painted purple, their mother's favorite color.

Following the formal portion of the Graham vigil, 7-year-old Dakota Gordon, a cousin of the boys, lingered for nearly five minutes at the crosses, staring at each name and touching two toys that belonged to them.

A similar vigil took place Tuesday in West Valley City, Utah.

Earlier in the day, Chuck and Judy Cox visited Charlie and Braden's gravesite in Washington state, along with Susan's sister Denise Cox and her fiancé Andrew Olsen. They placed flowers on the grave and sat around a statue that was erected on the hill overlooking the grave to serve as a place for people to gather in memory.

Police still searching for answers in Powell case
February 5th, 2013 @ 7:00pm

 ::snipping2::
In the year since the Powell boys' deaths, Steven Powell has taken legal action to preserve his silence. Deputies in Washington have been forced to work on the case through his lawyers after the senior Powell filed a notice with the court.
 
"We've been served paperwork by his attorneys not to contact him, so he's no longer anybody that we can address or speak with," said Pierce County, Washington Sheriff's Office Spokesman Ed Troyer. "It's not for a lack of trying by the police agencies, trying to get more information. It's just not going to happen."
 ::snipping2::
Chuck Cox, Susan's father, has threatened to sue for records to keep the investigation churning. He said police have missed clues and that a private investigation remains on the back burner.

"We were considering (a private investigation)," Cox said. "We still do consider that. Right now, the police are still investigating."
 
An assistant chief with the West Valley Police Department said officers are still following up on leads and the case is progressing, though they did not offer more details.

Brother of killer dad Josh Powell commits suicide after losing battle for $1.5million insurance payout over deaths of his family in fire horror


13 February 2013

In the latest chapter of a tragic family, Michael C. Powell, the brother of Josh Powell, the Utah man who killed his two sons and himself in a gas explosion this time last year and was also suspected of killing his wife in 2009 committed suicide on Monday.


Graduate student Michael C. Powell leapt to his death from a Minneapolis parking lot on Monday
 
Powell, 30, leapt to his death from a seven-story Minneapolis parking lot in the middle of the afternoon just after filing an objection to a court who declined to award him $1.5 million insurance money from the death of his brother and nephews.

 
According to a police report, the fall was witnessed by four people who said that Powell landed onto the sidewalk in front of them and died instantly. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed the death of the The University of Minnesota doctoral student in cognitive science.

 
Michael Powell was known for his vociferous support of his brother Josh, who attacked his two sons Charlie, 7, and Braden, 5, with a hatchet before blowing his house up in February of 2012 in Graham, Washington.

 
Michael's brother Josh was also a person of interest for police in the disappearance of his wife Susan Powell, who was last seen on December 6th, 2009 at the couple's West Balley City, Utah, home - and who Josh claimed went missing during a family camping trip.

 
In addition, Michael was a staunch supporter of his father Steve Powell, who was convicted in May 2012 of 14 counts of voyeurism for secretly taking photographs of two girls who lived near to his home in Puyallup.

Washngton state Senate unanimously approves 'Susan Powell' child custody bill
on March 07, 2013 at 8:51 PM, updated March 07, 2013 at 8:54 PM

 ::snipping2::
The proposed law would require state officials to consult with law enforcement about visitation matters when a parent is an identified suspect in a criminal investigation that could impact the safety of the child. Powell was not a declared suspect in his wife's disappearance but was named a person of interest.

The bill now goes to the state House.

DA May Toss More Than 100 Cases From WVC Police 

(KUTV) A stack of criminal drug cases investigated by West Valley Police could soon be trashed, or become recycled paper stock.

In an interview with 2News Thursday, Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill would not hazard a number, but said his office could toss more than 100 cases.
 ::snipping2::
West Valley Mayor Mike Winder told 2News he welcomes FBI inquiry into the police.

Winder expressed frustration with the length of time the city force has investigated the Susan Cox Powell disappearance—a case that years after she vanished is still not closed.  Her husband Josh, the only named person of interest, killed himself and the couples' two young boys by setting fire to his Washington home.

The mayor also identified the Willard case as a source of frustration.

Steven Powell to be released from prison in May
April 24th, 2013 @ 9:42am

MONROE, Wa. — The father-in-law of missing West Valley City mother Susan Cox Powell is slated to be released from prison less than a year after he was sentenced.

Steven Powell was sentenced to 30 months in prison for 12 counts of voyeurism and is serving time at the Monroe Correctional Complex in Monroe, Wash. Because of credit for time served and good behavior, he will be released less than a year from the day the sentence was handed down.

According to the Washington State Department of Corrections, Powell will be released from custody on May 23.

Steven Powell’s prison release will be delayed
Updated: 4/25 10:54 pm | Published: 4/25 10:51 pm

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) – ABC 4 Utah has learned new information about the release of Steven Powell, father of Josh Powell. His release date will not happen as soon as he expected.

It appears Steven Powell will be spending more time behind bars than he may have originally thought. He's the father in law Susan Cox Powell who disappeared from West Valley City in 2009.

Right now he's serving time on unrelated charges in a Washington state prison, and was scheduled to be released on May 23rd. But now a spokesperson for the Washington Department of Corrections said that's not going to happen.

"It's too soon to tell at this point what his exact date of release will be," said Norah West, Washington St. Dept. of Corrections.

The problem with Powell has to do with his plan after prison.

"Every offender who is on community supervision, which Mr. Powell will be, is also required to complete an offender release plan," said West.

That plan includes things like where he plans to live, and plans to do for work. So far Powell's plan hasn't been approved.

"His sentence is not completed until his plan is approved," West said.
 ::snipping2::
"It may be within a week, it may be in a couple of months."

From what ABC 4 Utah is told by the Washington Department of Corrections, a prisoner in his situation can only be released 30 to 35 days after his plan is approved. Right now his plan is currently being reviewed. So if you're doing the math, his release date was May 23rd. Even his plan gets approved immediately there's no way he'll be out on his release date.

Police return grant spent on Susan Powell probe
Published: May 10, 2013 at 3:14 PM PDT

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) - West Valley City Police have returned more than $17,000 in federal grant money spent to investigate the disappearance of missing Utah mother Susan Cox Powell that was supposed to be spent on drug trafficking investigations.

The Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug-Trafficking Area program administers the grant and found during a 2011 audit that the spending didn't meet program criteria.

The money wasn't used for major drug trafficking or drug dealer investigations as the program requires, and the West Valley City voluntarily returned the money last year, said program director Tom Gorman.
 ::snipping3::
West Valley City Deputy Police Chief Mike Powell, who is unrelated to the missing woman, told The Associated Press that investigators explored a possible connection to drugs and Powell's disappearance.

"There was a nexus that was developed to controlled substances that may have played a role," he said.

Mike Powell said he could not offer further details on what role drugs might have played.

He said that while the audit found the costs did not meet criteria, it did find the spending "reasonable" and "justified."

Gorman said he didn't know the details about how the city found a drug tie-in to the Powell case beyond it involving the potential of prescription drugs playing a role.

Police search Marion Co. property for Susan Powell's remains
May 15, 2013

MARION COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -
Investigators with cadaver dogs have been searching a Marion County property for the remains of Susan Powell, who was last seen in Utah in December 2009.
During a search of a storage unit in Puyallup, WA, investigators discovered evidence that pointed them to a property in Scotts Mills.

Police traveled from Utah to the heavily wooded property on South Butte Creek Road Tuesday.

FOX 13 in Utah reports Powell's father also made the trip to observe the dig effort. Chuck Cox told the Associated Press Wednesday that the search has not turned up any signs of his daughter.

Powell's husband, Josh Powell, had been considered a person of interest in her disappearance. He killed himself, along with the couple's two children, in a gas-fueled inferno at a home in Pierce County, WA, in February 2012.

The Oregon property belongs to Josh Powell's aunt and uncle on his father's side. Investigators said in addition to evidence found in the storage unit, the mileage on Josh Powell's rental car coincided with a round trip from Salt Lake City to Scotts Mills.

Josh Powell claimed he had taken his two sons camping late the night his wife disappeared.

Search for Susan Cox Powell in Oregon reveals no answers
May 16, 2013

WEST VALLEY CITY — An extensive two-day search of a farm near Salem, Ore., brought out search dogs and investigators but West Valley police did not find the remains of Susan Cox Powell.

Chuck Cox, Susan's father, was on hand for the search Wednesday, which he said seemed promising following a tip he received and passed on to investigators.

Cox was told by a source he declined to name that relatives of Steven Powell, Susan's father-in-law, had told members of the Powell family they would be willing to help hide a body on a remote piece of property, should the need arise. That tip prompted the search of an estimated 180 acres of land in Oregon that the family had been renting around the time of the disappearance.

Cox said the scene was impressive, watching five teams of local police joined by West Valley officers and using cadaver dogs to comb the property. He described it as "hunting country," a remote, rugged area in the foothills outside Salem.

The location seemed logical — this might be "the one," he thought.

"It seemed like it fit," he said. "She just wasn't there. The dogs didn't find anything."
 ::snipping3::
Cox said he hopes the search will generate new tips that could finally lead to answers about his daughter's disappearance. Nevertheless, Wednesday's fruitless search was disheartening for him.

"It's depressing," he said. "We're not sure she'll ever be found. But you just can't give up, because, you know, she's your daughter."

Steve Powell, 63, was convicted last year of 12 counts of voyeurism for filming his young neighbors while they were in their own bathrooms. He was ordered to serve 30 months in prison, and with credit for the time he had already served prior to the June 2012 sentencing, will be released next week on May 23.

Photos and journals discovered during the investigation indicate Steve Powell was obsessed with his daughter-in-law, Susan Powell.

Updated today at 9:32 AM

SCOTTS MILLS, Ore.  -- After a search in rural Oregon failed to yield any trace of missing Utah mother Susan Powell, authorities say they may close the investigation.

Wayne Pyle, who is city manager in West Valley City, Utah, said Thursday that leads in the case have dried up in the three and a half years since Powell disappeared.

Police said earlier Thursday they found no signs of Powell after searching for two days at a rural site near Salem, the capital city of Oregon

Did Josh Powell's Brother Commit Suicide Because He Buried Susan's Body?
05/17/2013 at 04:45 PM EDT

When Utah police led 20 searchers and five cadaver dogs onto a property in Salem, Ore., this week, they were acting on suspicions that Susan Cox Powell was buried there – and that the man who buried her was not her late husband, Josh Powell, but rather his brother, a politician and graduate student who later committed suicide.

Susan's father, Charles Cox – who has worked tirelessly with authorities to find his daughter – shares with PEOPLE that West Valley City, Utah, police believe Josh's brother, Michael Powell, was an accomplice in her murder.

According to Cox and other sources, detectives believe Josh drove the couple's Town & Country van hundreds of miles northwest in a snowstorm in December 2009 as his and Susan's two young sons, Charlie and Braden, slept in the backseat. They believe Josh turned Susan's body over to Michael, who buried her.

But this week's search on a woodsy, 180-acre property that was rented by Josh's relatives at the time of Susan's disappearance did not yield any human remains and the search was called off Thursday after three days.

Michael Powell "was more involved in the disposal of her body," says Cox, who has endured years of searches that have come up empty and been notified repeatedly of the discovery of remains that turned out not to be Susan's.

Cox says the police are at the end of their investigation and might soon discuss their suspicion of Michael's involvement.

A West Valley City police spokesman, Sgt. Mike Powell (no relation), would neither confirm nor deny that police now believe Michael Powell buried Susan's body. But he confirms that police may soon reveal more about Susan's disappearance.

He added that information about the case should only be treated as factual once it's released by the police department. "Any particular aspect of the investigation not coming from the WVCPD should be examined very cautiously," Sgt. Powell said.

Did Josh Powell's Brother Commit Suicide Because He Buried Susan's Body?
05/17/2013 at 04:45 PM EDT

 ::snipping3::
Michael Powell's Suicide
Police began seeing clues to Michael Powell's involvement fairly early in the case, says Anne Bremner, a high-profile Seattle attorney. Bremner represents Susan's family as well as the victims in Steve Powell's voyeurism case. She also has participated in many discussions between police and the Cox family.

Bremner says police learned after Susan disappeared that "Michael had his Ford Taurus towed a hundred miles, and then sold it for salvage value because, police think, he had her body in there. Then he hired militaristic satellite photography people to go look at the wrecking yard to see if his car had been completely destroyed, but it wasn't."

She adds, "Cadaver dogs came to the tow yard and only indicated on his car, no one else's."

More recently, Bremner says, Utah police repeatedly questioned Michael Powell in Minneapolis. Then, three months ago, Michael Powell jumped from the fifth story of a parking structure, taking his own life. He was 30.

Cox says he and the officers believe Michael Powell "couldn't live with what he'd done, or the police were closing in." But Cox also said it was he who prompted the search in Salem, Ore., based on a tip he received from a confidential source.

With this latest search completed, Cox says the West Valley City police tell him there will be no more searches and their investigation is finished. Sgt. Powell says the department will do more if new leads spring up, but "we are nearing the end of the tips and leads that we have to follow up on."

He adds, "Our focus has been finding Susan, and Susan is still missing. It's been a long, enduring and difficult investigation."

But Cox vows "we'll keep searching" until he finds his daughter.

Bremner says Cox is so convinced that Michael Powell buried Susan in the Salem, Ore., area that he's organizing a search for the weekend of May 25 on public lands surrounding the Salem property, and he already has recruited more searchers than the number that participated in this week's effort.

Those interested in participating can call her at (206) 486-1200.

Susan’s father claims bones were found in Oregon search
Posted on: 9:33 pm, May 17, 2013, by Ben Winslow, updated on: 09:50pm, May 17, 2013

PORTLAND — The father of Susan Cox Powell claims police recovered bones during their search of a heavily-forested Oregon property.

“They did find things,” he said in an interview Friday night with FOX 13. “They found some bones out there. They don’t know if they’re animal or person bones, so they’re still processing the things they found out there.”

Deputy West Valley City Police Chief Mike Powell (no relation to Susan or the Powell family) insisted that investigators found nothing significant during the search.
 ::snipping3::
A lawyer for the Cox family said she took a deposition from Michael Powell last year as part of a series of lawsuits filed in connection with the deaths of Susan’s children, Charlie and Braden. Anne Bremner said she questioned Powell for eight hours about his whereabouts before, during and after Susan’s disappearance. After Susan disappeared, Bremner said, Michael Powell told her he drove to Utah.

“He said that he drove three mountain passes to see Josh and help Josh,” she told FOX 13 on Friday. “He also said that his car, a Taurus, broke down along the way.”

Bremner said Michael Powell told her in the deposition that he had the car totaled and sold for scrap. She said police have also indicated he had an interest in seeing that car destroyed.

“There’s been some suspicion that if he did that, it’s because he had further involvement than he admitted to,” she said.

West Valley City police have refused to say if they believe Michael Powell may have been involved in Susan’s disappearance. On Wednesday, as cadaver dogs searched the Oregon property for Susan, FOX 13 asked deputy chief Mike Powell about anyone else who may have been involved.

“We have stated from the very beginning that anybody that has any involvement we consider a person of interest,” he said at the time. “We continue to state that. We are looking at any possibility.”

West Valley City police have said they are close to exhausting all leads in the disappearance of Susan Cox Powell. The police department has scheduled a news conference Monday afternoon to discuss the case.

WEST VALLEY CITY — New information is expected to be released today in the Susan Cox Powell investigation.

West Valley police have called a 3 p.m. news conference they say will involve "detailed updates" pertaining to the 3 ˝-year-old case.

The press conference comes on the heels of a two-day search in a heavily wooded area outside of Salem, Ore., last week. Nothing was found. At that time, West Valley police hinted it likely marked the end of their investigation, barring any new evidence that might come up.

The press conference will be streamed live on this website and updates will be provided on Twitter @DNewsCrimeTeam. KSL-Ch. 5 will also broadcast the press conference on television.

It seems that the LE conducted a good investigation. 

--Josh was definitely involved with the disappearance of Susan.
--Michael was involved.
--Steve had no direct involvement; may have learned/overheard something along the way.

Will Susan ever be found?  Both Josh and Michael committed suicide, and Steven will probably never say anything about it--even if he knows something.   ::MonkeyNoNo::

Police Close Susan Powell Case, Offer New Details
WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah May 20, 2013 (AP)

For the first time, Utah police said Monday they believe Susan Powell's brother-in-law was "heavily involved" in getting rid of her body, even as they announced they couldn't solve the sensational case of a mother's disappearance after a nearly 3 ˝-year investigation.

West Valley police said the focus shifted to Michael C. Powell after Josh Powell killed the couple's two boys and himself in a deliberately set house fire 15 months ago.

Police announced Monday they were closing the investigation of Susan Powell's disappearance, citing a lack of leads coupled with Michael C. Powell's suicide months ago. They also released the case file, which shows Josh Powell had an affair with a woman he met through a dating service.

The file includes other details, and contained emails from Susan Powell's father, Chuck Cox, who expressed hope his daughter might be found in the days after her December 2009 disappearance.

Cox believed Josh Powell poisoned his wife's pancakes before she was taken from the couple's house.

"The question is, where did he put her and will we find her before she does die?" Cox wrote in an email to Utah authorities, according to the police file. "One possibility is that she is still alive, but we need to find her before she does die, if the poison was not a fatal dose, she may ... be found."

The police file contains tens of thousands of pages of documents, photographs and video, and interview notes and voice mail messages.

In one file, police revealed they interviewed a West Valley City woman who said she made contact with Josh Powell on the dating service Live Links six or seven months before Susan disappeared. The woman, identified only as Kourtney in police files, said she knew Powell by the name John Staley, and didn't know he was married.

The woman said Powell gave her $800 over the course of their relationship — for reasons that weren't detailed in police reports — and that she only discerned his real identity after news broke of Susan's disappearance. The woman was interviewed by police in August 2010.

File: Josh Powell Had Affair Before Wife Vanished

 ::snipping3::
According to a West Valley City police detective's report, investigators contacted the woman, whose full name is redacted, in August 2010, after her phone number was discovered in connection with the case.


She told police she had a sexual relationship with Powell after meeting him through a dating service about six or seven months before Susan Powell disappeared. The woman said she knew Powell by the name John Staley, and she didn't know he was married.

She said Powell gave her about $800 over the course of their relationship. The report didn't specify how long the relationship lasted, or what the money was for.

The woman "said that she eventually broke up with him and it wasn't until she saw the news story about the Susan Powell case that she realized John was actually Josh Powell," Detective David Greco wrote.

Lawyer: Feds Investigate Susan Powell Case
May 21, 2013


(2 pgs)
The lawyer for the family of a missing Utah woman said Tuesday there's an ongoing federal investigation into Susan Powell's disappearance.

Anne Bremner made the announcement at a Seattle news conference a day after local officials in Utah said they had closed their investigation into the Susan Powell case.

"This is not over," Bremner said.
 ::snipping3::
Bremner, who was joined at the news conference by Chuck Cox, Susan Powell's father, said the federal probe could also involve what Josh Powell's father knew about his daughter-in-law's disappearance. Steve Powell is currently serving a prison sentence after being convicted of voyeurism charges.

Bremner said Susan Powell's family plans to conduct searches on their own, including a property in Oregon where authorities recently said they looked for evidence but found nothing.

Good news about the fed agency's involvement in the investigation.  I hope Bremmer is correct, because the "West Valley City Deputy Police Chief Mike Powell said he believed Bremmer was mistaken. He said he wasn't immediately aware of any ongoing federal investigation but would look into it."  However, since the WVCPD has closed the active investigation, it wouldn't surprise me if a fed agency continued the investigation.  It's not over!  ::MonkeyDance::

I think it's time to check on the release of Steven...  ::jeep3::

Steven Powell will not be released from prison next week
Published: Thursday, May 16 2013 5:40 p.m. MDT

Steven Powell will remain in prison for at least another month and possibly longer.

Powell, 62, would have been eligible for early release from the Monroe Correctional Complex in Monroe, Wash., next Thursday. But under Washington state law, an inmate must first submit an "offender release plan."

"It's a plan of, where do you plan to live? How are you going to support yourself? What treatment is available? So the offender submits the plan. We investigate it. We go ensure that the residence is OK, that there's treatment available, you have a support network. We review it and we either approve it or deny it," said Washington Department of Corrections spokesman Chad Lewis. "Once he submits a plan and if we approve it, then the clock starts."

Once that plan is approved, Lewis said an inmate will stay an additional 35 days in prison while preparations are made for his release, such as notifying victims as well as local law enforcement in the area that he is about to move there.

Steven Powell can't go back to his home, corrections officials say
Published: Thursday, May 23 2013 6:00 p.m. MDT

PUYALLUP, Wash. — The Washington Department of Corrections says Steven Powell cannot move back into his old neighborhood where the crimes he was convicted of took place.

Powell, 62, is currently serving a prison sentence after being convicted of 14 counts of voyeurism in May of 2012. A Tacoma jury found him guilty of taking photographs of two neighbor girls, then ages 8 and 10, with a telephoto lens while they were nude or partially nude in their bathroom. Powell is currently incarcerated at the Monroe Correctional Complex.

He was eligible for early release Thursday. But under Washington state law, an inmate must first submit an "offender release plan" and have it approved by the Corrections Department. That plan must include details such as where he plans to live and work once he's released.

According to Powell's offender release plan, obtained by the Deseret News through a public records request, the Washington Department of Corrections has denied his request to return to live in his Puyallup home because of community concerns.

In the report, officials refer to the thousands of images seized from Powell's room by police of young girls who were filmed without their knowledge, and how the pictures focused mostly on the girls' buttocks and breasts. The report also mentioned the images of missing Utah mother Susan Cox Powell, his daughter-in-law, that were found in his house.

One part of the report also noted that Powell does not "have a verified high school diploma," although he said he has both a diploma and a college degree.

According to his release agreement that a judge signed when Powell was sentenced, he will not be allowed to have any contact with his victims once he is released and will be banned from possessing any camera or video recording equipment, sexually explicit materials, joining any social media Internet sites such as Facebook, and unsupervised Internet access including on mobile devices.

He will be required to obtain approved employment and living arrangements, enter a "state approved sexual deviancy treatment program," submit to polygraph and plethysmograph tests, register as a sex offender for 10 years in the county he is living in, and submit a DNA sample.
 ::snipping3::
If a release plan is never approved, Powell would still get out of prison in April of 2014, the maximum time on his sentence.

Powell does not have any other family members in Washington, other than Alina and John who are living in the house he cannot go back to, according to corrections documents. He does have relatives in Oregon.

Once Steve Powell is released from prison, I wonder how long it will be before he's up to his old tricks?  I see there is a list of release agreements, but I still wonder too how well authorities are going to keep track of him.  I've seen a number of times where an offender will agree to the terms, everything is set up, they start out on track and then they are lost.  the release agreements are as good as the system in place.  With budget cuts and case overloads, I am concerned. 

I'm really disturbed that Steve Powell only has to register as a sex offender for 10 years in the county he's residing. He's 62 years old now, and he will be 72 when the 10 years are up.  What's to stop him from doing what he does at 72 than he did at 62?  I don't think (and this is just my opinion) he can be fixed.  Why put children at risk?  Why doesn't Steve Powell have to register as a sex offender for life?

Steve Powell: Feds may be to blame for son’s suicide
The Salt Lake Tribune
First Published May 24 2013 01:01 am • Last Updated May 24 2013 06:55 am

A day after learning his son Michael had committed suicide, Steve Powell wrote a lengthy letter to a daughter reiterating his belief that federal agents planned assaults on the family that may have included slipping Michael psychotropic drugs.
 
"As with some of the other threats, it appears that they made good on this one," Powell wrote in the Feb. 12 letter to his daughter Alina. "I am quite sure that [name redacted] had no intention to kill Michael, but Michael’s suicide, evidently in reaction to a psychotropic drug, makes [name redacted] a person of interest in Michael’s unusual and unexpected death."

The letter is among tens of thousands of documents released earlier this week by West Valley City police in connection with Susan Cox Powell’s disappearance from her West Valley City home on Dec. 6, 2009.
 ::snipping3::
Steve Powell, 63, currently incarcerated at the Monroe Correctional Complex in Washington on a voyeurism conviction, had written letters to both Michael and Alina over the previous seven months detailing how two agents — a woman from the FBI and a man the Department of Defense — had met with him for three hours at the prison on July 31, 2012. The agents told Powell they were seeking clues from him about where to find the body of Susan Powell.
 
Powell said he had refused to talk about Josh or Susan during the interview and the defense department agent had made "numerous veiled threats" that included charging him with having child pornography or besmirching Michael’s reputation so he’d lose federal research funding.
 
"God only knows what these people are capable of doing," Powell wrote in an Aug. 1, 2012, letter to Alina, adding that it sounded like "this cowboy ... was connected to the CIA."
 
In an Aug. 5, 2012, letter, Powell asked Alina to give copies of the notes to Michael since "they were particularly making threats against him, and he needs to be aware of what they said."
 
Powell said one agent brought up the July 20, 2012 shooting in Aurora, Colo., pointed out that the shooter was a dropout "cog sci PhD student," too, and said he thought "Michael would go off the deep end and do something similarly crazy."
 
"What occurs to me this morning is that if these government agents want, they can make me or you or Michael do something crazy by slipping us some psychotropic drugs at their disposal," Powell wrote. "Our government is liable to do anything. ... Anyway, be on your guard. These morons have money to burn and are not going away."

Powell included copies of notes he had taken immediately after the interview, detailing questions asked and comments made by the agents. One agent told Powell he believed Michael had information about Susan’s disappearance but was refusing to disclose it. That agent described Alina as a "crackpot," Powell said.
 
Powell said they asked over and over, "Tell us what Josh told you about that night Susan disappeared."
 
" ‘Do the right thing and talk’ he said over and over," Powell wrote, adding that the agent said he could "get me out of here [solitary confinement] by Monday if I would cooperate." The agent also said Powell could be brought before a grand jury and that refusing to answer questions there would land him in prison for 60 months.
 
"They harped on this so much, thinking to scare me into opening up and talking to them, that I said, ‘Go ahead and call a grand jury,’ " he wrote.
 
Powell also wrote that he had already spent hours talking to federal agents and now hopes to "sue all of these agencies, and don’t need to give them any more."
 
Powell said one agent insulted him with "a lot of psychobabble" and claimed his infatuation with Susan drove Josh to kill her and their sons. The FBI agent provided a graphic description of what happens to bodies left out in the open, Powell said.
 
Such talk only strengthened his resolve to remain "clammed up," Powell wrote.
 
"If they think that making my life miserable will open me up, they’re as thick-headed as the ones (probably these two were involved) who did it to Josh," Powell wrote.
 
Powell said he snapped at one point and told the agents to quit harassing his family. In the August letter, he worried that they would do just that "since I unfortunately allowed them to see that as my hot button."

Police were watching, listening to Josh and Steven Powell, unsealed warrants show
Published: Friday, May 24 2013 6:41 p.m. MDT

WEST VALLEY CITY — Police investigating the disappearance of Susan Powell used wiretaps on phones belonging to Josh Powell and his father, Steven Powell, and attempted to orchestrate ways to get them to talk, newly released search warrants show.

The warrants in the Powell case were unsealed for the first time Thursday after the Deseret News filed a motion in 3rd District Court. West Valley police on Monday also released tens of thousands of pages of police reports and other documents related to their investigation into Susan Cox Powell's disappearance.

In their requests for wiretaps in 2011, West Valley police wrote about the status of their investigation into Josh Powell, who is suspected of killing his wife, and Steven Powell, who was suspected of obstructing justice.

Investigators wrote that they needed the wiretaps because "normal investigative procedures have been tried and failed, have met with limited success, or reasonably appear unlikely to succeed if tried, or are too dangerous to meet the specified objectives of this criminal investigation."

At that time, the focus of the investigation was on both Josh and Steven Powell, according to court documents. Michael Powell, Josh's brother, was not a focus of the wiretaps, but police this week said they believe he had "intimate involvement" in his sister-in-law's disappearance.

Susan Powell disappeared in December of 2009. Almost immediately after she was reported missing, investigators noted that Josh Powell was giving "contradictory and unreasonable" answers to police questions and could not answer any question in detail.

"For the first 36 hours after his wife has disappeared, J. Powell never inquires about her welfare, never asks what police are doing to locate her, never offers any help or assistance to law enforcement," a search warrant states.

He also had spent the night cleaning the minivan he used to allegedly take his young sons camping the night his wife disappeared, police wrote.

Watching Josh

West Valley police conducted surveillance on Josh Powell shortly after his wife disappeared and even followed him to a strip club in Wendover, Nev., according to an affidavit requesting a wiretap. During the drive, officers observed Powell "perform so many maneuvers designed to detect or thwart surveillance that law enforcement had to use an airplane to continue observing his actions," an affidavit states.

Police noted that both Steven and Josh Powell acted as if they were constantly being watched.

Missing mom Susan Powell's dad hires private eye
9:25 a.m. EDT May 22, 2013

SEATTLE (AP) — Police say they've taken their best shot at finding missing Utah mother Susan Powell. Now, her dad is hoping a review of the newly released case file — containing tens of thousands of pages of detective reports, maps, interview transcripts and more — might turn up something the investigators missed.

Chuck Cox told reporters Tuesday at a news conference in Seattle that a private eye has offered to help comb through the records, perhaps yielding new or overlooked clues about the sensational case.

"That's one of the reasons we wanted it: to find out what (the police) really had, because that would point us in a different direction and give us a place to search for my daughter," Cox said.

Susan Powell's sister-in-law recorded family talks about Utah mom's disappearance
Posted:   05/22/2013 12:34:18 PM PDT
May 22, 2013 7:38 PM GMT  Updated:   05/22/2013 12:38:58 PM PDT

Within weeks of Utah mom Susan Powell's disappearance, police got help in their investigation from the missing woman's sister-in-law, who secretly recorded the focus of their probe.

According to documents, Jennifer Graves questioned Josh Powell, her brother, about what he did the night his wife was last seen and asked, "Where did you put her?"

She also confronted their father, Steven Powell, that same night - Jan. 18, 2010, six weeks after the disappearance - about him allegedly having propositioned Susan Powell several years before.

Both conversations were recorded in what police dubbed "Operation Puyallup", named after the city in Washington state where Steven Powell and his son were living.

The attempt to get the two to self incriminate didn't work. Josh Powell refused to discuss the disappearance, citing advice from his attorney, court documents say, and Steven Powell called Graves a "bitch" before ordering her out of his house.

Graves, who lives in Utah, told the Tribune on Tuesday that she suggested to police she be wired because she wanted to help find out what had happened to Susan Powell.

"In that situation, you feel so powerless," Graves said Tuesday of the search for Susan Powell.

Graves said she "absolutely" believes that Josh Powell killed Susan Powell and that her father and another brother, Michael Powell, also were involved somehow, possibly after the fact.

"By the evidence, it looks like Michael helped him (Josh Powell) hide the body," she said.

Graves said she and Michael Powell had been close as children and it was devastating to learn of his possible involvement. As for Steven Powell, Graves said, "I still think he had something to do with it, even though they don't have any hard evidence."

Missing Mom's Diary Foreshadows Family Tragedy
May 26, 2013

(3 pgs)
Susan Powell had been married about a year when she started writing a journal. She was a love-struck, 20-year-old newlywed, dreaming of the future she would build with her husband.

"I just feel incredibly lucky to have Josh," she wrote in 2002.

Before long, however, she found herself torn. A growing sense of danger was telling her to grab her kids and flee, but her strong religious faith led her to believe she could save her young family. The journal entries turned grim.

"If I die, it may not be an accident even if it looks like one," she wrote in 2008. "Take care of my boys."

She went missing the following year and hasn't been seen since. Her husband later killed their sons and himself. No one was ever charged in her disappearance, and the people at the center of the police investigation — her husband, his brother and their father — are all either dead or in prison.

Cox family search for Susan Powell reaches Utah
May 29th, 2013 @ 10:46pm

TREMONTON, Box Elder County — The search for missing West Valley mother Susan Powell is back on inside the state of Utah. Susan's father, Chuck Cox, was in Tremonton Wednesday, continuing his personal search to find his daughter's body.

Cox's hope of finding his daughter was renewed after the West Valley City Police Department disclosed all of its investigation materials last week. The information was released as department officials called an end to their active search for Susan, saying they had run out of leads.

The investigation materials released by the department revealed that police had followed up on several leads in northern Utah and had other evidence that points in the direction of a 200-mile span of I-84 between Pendleton, Ore., and Tremonton, Utah.

Spurred on by the new information, Cox and his daughter Denise Cox Olsen began their own search of the area Monday. By Wednesday evening, it led them to a small florist shop in Tremonton.

Chuck Cox was leaving home again. In early summer, he loaded up his black Dodge Ram truck with the big V-8 engine and headed southeast. This time, one of his three surviving adult daughters rode shotgun to answer nonstop calls on his cellphone, with two volunteer private investigators trailing in a van.

Anything to find Susan.

With the certitude of an old investigator, Cox recently sat inside his living room in this Pacific Northwest town, recounting his relentless life on the road, part of the four-year quest to find his third-born daughter.

Steven Powell to be released from prison in Nov.
Posted on October 10, 2013 at 12:31 PM
Updated yesterday at 5:20 PM

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- The father-in-law of missing Utah mother Susan Powell is nearing the end of his prison sentence.
   
The Department of Corrections said Thursday that Steve Powell will likely be released on November 4. The 63-year-old will be supervised by a community corrections officer, is required to undergo sex offender treatment and will wear a GPS locator for the first 30 days of his release.

Powell will not be returning to his family home in Puyallup; he has already identified a home in Tacoma where he plans to live.

During the investigation of Susan Powell's disappearance, it became known that Steven Powell had an odd obession with her. Powell has been serving time for secretly recording naked images of young neighbor girls. He was sentenced in June 2012 on 14 counts of voyeurism.

Susan Powell's father said he knew this day would come.

"At least now people who know he is and what he is and that will make it more difficult for him, I hope, as far as the chances of him reoffending," said Chuck Cox, Susan Powell's father.

Department of Corrections officials said Steven Powell could have been released as early as May of this year, but there was a holdup with his offender release plan. DOC declined to say what that was.

"It could be that the housing that they're looking at poses a risk to the community, poses victims concerns," said Norah West with the Department of Corrections.

Video at link.
PUYALLUP, Washington — The announcement of a release date for Steven Powell, the father-in-law of missing West Valley City mom Susan Cox Powell, is not sitting well with members of her family.

“It’s a little earlier than we were hoping,” said Jennifer Graves, Steven Powell’s daughter and a confidante of Susan.

Graves hasn’t spoken to her father since she confronted him and her brother, Josh Powell, about Susan’s disappearance several years ago. In an interview with FOX 13, Graves said his release is “disappointing.”

“It was not anything unexpected that he was going to be released,” she said. “We knew eventually.”

State rescinds plan to release Steve Powell from prison

 ::snipping3::
Powell, 63, who is housed at Monroe Correctional Complex, can submit another release plan for DOC review provided he can give a suitable address where he will live, the DOC said. In order to be approved, the plan must include a safety plan for victims, a plan for Powell to participate in treatment and a plan for Powell to support himself, according to a DOC news release.

Once a new release plan is submitted, it sets in motion a 35-day notification period before Powell can be released.

If Powell is unable to submit a suitable release plan, he won’t be released from prison until he reaches his maximum-release date in March, according to the DOC.

Powell is serving time on voyeurism charges for secretly recording images of young neighbor girls in Pierce County. He was sentenced in June 2012.

Last week, the DOC announced Powell had identified a home in Tacoma where he planned to live upon his expected release next month. The DOC notified Powell’s victims and local law enforcement about his scheduled release date.

The DOC didn’t release details of the property owner, but said the offer to let Powell stay at the Tacoma home was withdrawn because the plans were made public and the property owner didn’t want attention.

Families of Susan, Josh Powell wrangle over assets

SALT LAKE CITY — Missing Utah mother Susan Cox Powell’s parents are wrangling with their late son-in-law’s family over management of her assets, including her Utah home.

Powell has been missing since 2009. Utah police focused their investigation into her disappearance on her husband, Josh Powell until he killed himself and their two sons in 2012.

Attorney Anne Bremner, who represents Susan Powell’s parents, Judy and Chuck Cox, of Puyallup, told Utah Judge L.A. Dever that the issue of managing Susan’s estate has been settled in a Washington court.

Her father, Chuck Cox, has served as a conservator since January, but Terrica and Alina Powell, Josh Powell’s mother and sister, have since asked a Utah judge to appoint somebody else.

The conservator cannot financially benefit from the estate as Susan Powell has not been declared dead.

But if her father were removed as the manager of her assets, it would remove one roadblock for the Powell family, which is seeking $3.5 million in life insurance policies, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.

Families of Susan and Josh Powell argue over estate in Utah courtroom
First Published Oct 17 2013 01:01 am • Last Updated Oct 17 2013 07:13 am
   
On Susan Powell’s 32nd birthday, her family sat in a Salt Lake City courtroom as lawyers argued whether her late husband’s family should have a say in how her estate is managed.
 
Third District Judge L.A. Dever said Wednesday he would issue a written ruling at a later date. For the moment, being conservator benefits no one. Although Powell was last seen at her West Valley City home Dec. 6, 2009, she has not been declared dead and a conservator can only maintain her assets, not sell them and keep the proceeds. So, for example, a conservator can pay taxes on the Powell home in West Valley City, but not sell it and keep the money.
 ::snipping3::
Terrica and Alina Powell’s Utah attorney, Joshua Lee, told Dever the pair received notice that Cox became conservator after the fact, and Cox had no authority to change terms of the trust to remove his clients as trustees.
 
If the matter were a criminal trial, Lee argued, it would be akin to "saying you’ve been convicted of a crime and you can have a trial afterward."
 
Dever pressed attorneys on whether the law allowed Cox to exclude the Powells from participation in the trust.
 
"I’m not saying he can’t act as conservator for her estate," Dever said. "The question is, can he modify the trust?"
 
The Coxes’ Utah attorney, Donald Reay, said the trust’s bylaws did not address what to do if Susan Powell went missing, but Utah law allowed him to become conservator.
 
Chuck Cox and his wife, Judy Cox, are from Puyallup, Wash., but were in the courtroom Wednesday. They have been represented by Seattle attorney Anne Bremner. Bremner told Dever the Powells challenged Chuck Cox’s conservatorship in a proceeding in federal court in Washington and lost. Their challenge in Utah court, Bremner argued, amounted to venue shopping.

Steven Powell fights $1.8M award to voyeurism victims
Published: November 5, 2013 Updated 21 hours ago

Two neighbor girls who Steven Powell secretly photographed while they bathed and used the toilet won a $1.8 million civil judgment against him this year, and on Tuesday their lawyers applied for a writ of garnishment against Powell’s assets.

Powell, 63, has asked Pierce County Superior Court Judge Vicki Hogan to vacate the judgment. A hearing on Powell’s motion has been scheduled for this month.
 ::snipping3::
Powell will be released by March at the latest, but could be freed earlier if he gets an acceptable release plan together. At one time Powell was to be released this past Monday, but that plan was dropped when the owner of the Tacoma property where he was to live withdrew the offer.
 ::snipping3::
At a hearing in August, Hogan determined the girls’ damages to be $1.8 million and signed an order to that effect.

Powell has yet to make a payment toward settling the judgment, court records show.

Steven Powell has no excuse not to pay $1.8 million, attorney says
Published: Tuesday, Nov. 12 2013 9:35 p.m. MST
Updated: yesterday

TACOMA, Wash. — Steven Powell doesn't have any legal reason for opposing the $1.8 million penalty levied against him other than he simply doesn't want to pay it.

That's what attorney Anne Bremner argues in court documents filed in Washington on Tuesday.

"(Powell) does not even suggest he has a defense; his motion to vacate instead focuses on his dissatisfaction with the outcome," she wrote.

Last week, Powell, 63, filed handwritten documents to the Pierce County Superior Court in Tacoma, claiming the damages awarded to the two young neighbor girls who were the focus of his voyeuristic picture-taking were "excessive." He said there was "no evidence or reasonable inference from the evidence to justify" paying $1.8 million.
 ::snipping3::
A judge is scheduled to hear oral arguments on the motion Friday in Tacoma. It was unknown if Powell will be present for the hearing.

Last week, the girls' mother filed a writ of garnishment against Powell and his credit union. With interest, the writ claims Powell now owes the family $1.9 million. If a writ of garnishment is approved by a judge, the family can take whatever is currently in Powell's bank account.

While Bremner admitted that seeking $1.9 million was in part symbolic, there is also a real need by the victims for counseling.

Powell has been eligible for early release from prison since May but has been unable to come up with a required "offender release plan" that the Washington Department of Corrections will approve. If he fails to come up with one, he will be released in March after serving his entire sentence.

OLYMPIA  — Remains recently found near the Nisqually Reservation are those of an adult female with light pigmented skin who had been dismembered by human means, the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

remains“Her approximate age and cause of death are not known,” the sheriff’s office said. “The female appears to have light pigmented skin, but race has not been determined. The female has yet to be identified.”

Searchers found part of a skull and arm bone Wednesday morning near the 13600 block of Peter Kalama Drive north of Yelm. Investigators were called to the address last Saturday (Nov. 9) after a dog dragged home part of a leg bone that he found while scrounging in nearby woods.

The sheriff’s office said Thursday it has learned that the body was “dismembered by human means, but unknown method at this time.”

Award against Powell upheld
November 17, 2013

Steven Powell must pay a $1.8 million judgment to two girls he secretly photographed in their bathroom despite his claim that the penalty was “excessive,” a judge ruled late Friday.

Powell, 63, had asked Pierce County Superior Court Judge Vicki Hogan to vacate the judgment. He represented himself in his court filings.

Hogan rejected his request and declined to hear oral arguments from him and attorney Anne Bremmer, who represented the girls.

Hogan found that written arguments from Powell and Bremmer were sufficient to uphold the penalty.

The judgment is intended to compensate the girls for counseling, medical care and suffering.

Powell boys among children remembered at Angel of Hope statue

Heartbreak is something Chuck Cox knows well. His family used community donations to build the Angel of Hope statue at Woodbine Cemetery in Puyallup. It sits near the gravesite of his grandchildren, Charlie and Braden Powell.

The Powell boys were killed in February 2012 by their father, Josh Powell, who claimed his own life the same day. In addition to that loss, Cox is still searching for his daughter Susan.

"It has been four years and we still don't know where she is," said Cox.

Josh Powell was the last one who reportedly saw her four years ago today.

"We tried to do something to help other people," said Cox.

The Cox family plans to host gatherings every December 6th at the statue to remember all children who have passed away.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A judge has ordered the sale of Steven Powell's house to help pay a judgment owed two girls he secretly photographed inside a bathroom.

The Deseret News of Salt Lake City reports the father-in-law of missing Utah mother Susan Cox-Powell can avoid the sale by paying the full $1.8 million judgment before a sheriff's auction that's set for Feb. 7.

Steven Powell has 'no possible defense,' attorneys in civil case argue
Published: Thursday, Jan. 9 2014 4:10 p.m. MST
Updated: Thursday, Jan. 9 2014 4:46 p.m. MST

TACOMA, Wash. — Attorneys representing two young girls who were secretly photographed by neighbor Steven Powell have fired back at Powell's motion to dismiss the $1.8 million civil judgment against him.

In court documents filed this week in Pierce County Superior Court, Seattle-based attorney Anne Bremner argued that dismissing a judgment after it has been entered is not possible, not to mention that Powell's arguments for having the judgment dismissed have no merit in the first place.

Bremner said there's no reason not to put Powell's Puyallup house on the auction block on Feb. 7 because he can't live there due to both legal and financial reasons.

"As a matter of law, he cannot 'intend' to occupy a property that he is prohibited from occupying," Bremner wrote in court documents.

Powell, who is representing himself, wants the civil suit against him thrown out because he claims he was not properly notified of the court hearings, making the suit void.

"Steven Powell fails to raise any defense at all, let alone present 'substantial evidence,'" Bremner responded. "He has no possible defense."

Steven Powell's house to go on auction block next week
Published: Tuesday, Jan. 28 2014 12:30 p.m. MST
Updated: Tuesday, Jan. 28 2014 1:53 p.m. MST

TACOMA, Wash. — Steven Powell's house apparently will go on the auction block next week.

Saying he didn't present any valid arguments, a Pierce County Superior Court judge has denied all of Powell's motions to have the $1.8 million civil judgment against him dismissed, thus stopping the sale of his house.
 ::snipping3::
The girls were awarded $1.8 million in a civil judgment that Powell never contested until after it was final. The amount Powell currently owes, with interest, is about $1.9 million.

In December, a judge ordered the Pierce County Sheriff's Office to sell Powell's largest nonexempt asset, his house at 18615 94th Avenue Court East in Puyallup, to start paying what he owes. The house will go on the auction block Feb. 7 if he can't come up with the money.

House panel approves bill to protect children whose parent is murder suspect
Published: Tuesday, March 4 2014 12:27 p.m. MST
Updated: Tuesday, March 4 2014 12:27 p.m. MST


SALT LAKE CITY — The House Judiciary Committee endorsed a bill Tuesday that aims to protect children when one of their parents is suspected of killing the other.

SB173 would make it possible for concerned parties or the state to petition that children be placed in protective custody if law enforcement investigators identify a parent as the primary suspect in the killing of the other parent.

Nothing in the bill changes the presumption of innocence, said sponsor Sen. Todd Weiler, R-Woods Cross.

Rep. Craig Hall, R-West Valley City, said a child should never have to live in a home where a parent, guilty or not, is the primary suspect in a homicide because of the emotional stress it would cause.

<snipped>

It is a less stringent version of a bill that failed in the Washington Legislature last year that was prompted by the Josh Powell case. Powell had partial custody of his two young boys, even though he was suspected of killing his missing wife, Susan Cox Powell, in Utah. He murdered the two boys and killed himself minutes after the children were delivered to him for what was supposed to be a supervised weekend visit.

Chuck Cox: ‘Too many warning signs’ regarding Josh Powell
Posted: 12:20 p.m. Monday, Feb. 6, 2012


Chuck Cox said it’s clearer than ever, in his mind, that Powell was responsible for the disappearance of Susan Cox Powell – the Coxes' daughter and Powell’s wife – in Utah two years ago. He said he thought Powell was feeling pressure from the investigation into his wife’s disappearance, in which police had called Powell a person of interest.

“He was going to lose in his way,” Chuck Cox said. “It was cowardly.”

Cox said he warned police, social workers, lawyers and anyone else who would listen that he felt Powell might try something desperate.

“We felt that if he – Josh – felt that there was no hope -- that he was losing, or was gonna end up in jail or something – that he would do something very desperate and could possibly harm the children or take them with him in a murder-suicide thing,” Cox said. “Well, there you go.”

Powell, despite being the only person of interest in the case, had refused to cooperate with detectives. For that reason and many others, Chuck Cox said he thinks the deaths of his grandsons could have, and should have, been avoided.

“THERE WERE TOO MANY WARNING SIGNS THAT WERE KNOWN, BUT DUE TO LEGAL LIMITATIONS, WERE UNABLE TO BE ACTED UP," HE SAID. "SO WE ENDED UP WHERE WE ENDED UP."

Steven Powell to complete prison sentence on Sunday
March 17, 2014 @ 12:15 pm  (Updated: 1:57 pm - 3/17/14 )

Steven Powell is scheduled to be released from prison on Sunday, March 23 after serving 30 months for 14 counts of voyeurism.

The Department of Corrections said Powell, 64, will live in Tacoma under the supervision of a community corrections officer who is part of a specialized sex-crime unit.

Powell will be required to wear a GPS locator for at least the first 30 days of his community supervision and attend a sex-offender treatment program. Powell will have to get permission to leave Pierce County and check in with the officer a minimum of two times each month. That officer will also conduct multiple field contacts each month.

The DOC said Powell has three days to register with the Pierce County Sheriff's Office as a sex offender. It'll be up to the office to determine which level.

I read through the article grace-land posted and I don't see anything spelling out limits to access  computers nor is there anything that would prevent him being near playgrounds, schools etc.  How is an ankle monitor going to prevent him from being a creeper window peeper of children, which he has been shown to have done in the past?  What about cell phones or cameras for photographing children, even in public places?  Perhaps these items I've mentioned will be spelled out after he registers with the sheriff's office and coincide with the level determined.   
A very, very poor job was done keeping tabs on Josh Powell and we all know how badly that turned out.   ::MonkeyTears::  JMHO

Josh Powell's family members say they should get insurance payout
April 15, 2014 Updated 4 hours ago

Josh Powell’s heirs, who for more than four years argued his innocence in the disappearance of his wife, Susan, now suggest in a court filing they would be willing to try to prove she is dead if it helps them collect money from her life insurance policy.

While the filing doesn’t specify that the finger would be pointed at Josh Powell, lawyers for Susan Powell’s parents, Chuck and Judy Cox of Puyallup, say that would be the only option.

“What else could they do?” Seattle attorney Anne Bremner asked. “If you’re going to prove it by clear and convincing evidence, which is the requirement, what do they have?”

Joshua Lee, a Utah attorney representing the Powells, said the filing does not necessarily mean what Bremner thinks and is an example of a lawyer trying to maintain options.

“I would imagine it has to do with simply the date (of Susan Powell’s death) and not the cause,” Lee said.

The Powells’ court filing was made by Tacoma attorney Tom J. West. At issue is $3.5 million in life insurance proceeds for Josh and Susan Powell and their two sons, Charlie, 7; and Braden, 5. A federal court case in Washington state and a state court case in Utah are aimed at determining who is eligible to collect
 ::snipping3::
Meanwhile, Chuck Cox, in 2013, was made conservator of Susan Powell’s estate in Utah. It’s possible any life insurance proceeds would go to that estate.

The Powells are challenging Chuck Cox’s appointment as conservator. To remove Cox, Bremner said, they could try to prove Susan Powell died before Josh Powell’s death. The Powells then could contend they are the proper conservators and seek to inherit and manage Susan Powell’s estate.

Powell, who is representing himself, filed a nine-page, handwritten motion Friday in Tacoma's Pierce County Superior Court requesting the civil suit against him be dismissed because he claims he was not properly notified of the court hearings, making the suit void.

Powell, who is currently incarcerated at the Monroe Correctional Complex in Washington and is scheduled to be released in March, recently wrote in court documents that he planned to resume living at his Puyallup home once he completed his sentence.

He said his daughter, Alina, and son John still live there, and if he were to lose his house, they would become "homeless."

SALT LAKE CITY — Recently filed court documents in Washington state say Steven Powell will be released from prison March 23.

But as Powell prepares to leave incarceration, the battle over what will happen to his Puyallup, Wash., home continues.
 ::snipping3::
He has been incarcerated in the Monroe Correctional Complex in Washington and will be placed on probation for 30 months once he is released.
 ::snipping3::
According to a letter from the Washington Department of Corrections addressed to the mother on Feb. 10, Powell will be released on March 23 and plans to reside at 3606 E. J St. in Tacoma.

On Friday, a Pierce County Superior Court judge denied Powell's latest motion for the judge to reconsider her previous decision not to delay the sale of his house. This Friday, the judge is scheduled to hear arguments about whether Powell's property can be declared as "homestead."

Thank you grace-land.  While I was reading the updates in this thread concerning the Powell's greedy attempts to obtain insurance money, I thought about Steve Powell's house.  I remembered the two siblings protested and said they would be homeless if the house were sold with funds going toward the judgement, but I couldn't recall seeing seeing a decision on the sale.

Steven Powell asks state to pay for treatment
April 16, 2014

Convicted voyeur Steven Powell wants the state to pick up the tab for his court-ordered sex offender treatment.

In a motion filed April 2 in Pierce County Superior Court, Powell — the father-in-law of presumed murder victim Susan Cox Powell — argues that the state Department of Corrections did not make sex offender treatment available to him while he was in prison as it should have.

He wants a judge to order the department to pay for his treatment now that he’s been released.

In a response filed Tuesday, John Samson, an assistant state attorney general who represents the Corrections Department, said Powell is wrong. He did not qualify for sex offender treatment while in prison, and corrections officials were within their discretion to deny it to him, Samson wrote.

“Powell fails to cite a single statute that mandates the department to provide him with sex offender treatment,” the assistant attorney general wrote. “Powell cannot cite such a statute because no such statute exists.”

Judge Ronald Culpepper is to hear arguments on the matter Friday.

Pierce County Superior Court Judge Ronald Culpepper agreed Friday with the state Attorney General’s Office that Powell cited the wrong statute when he made his request.

The News Tribune reported that Powell conceded the point in court, saying he wasn’t able to go to a law library after he got out of prison. He was released late last month after serving 30 months for taking photographs of two young neighbor girls.

Powell life insurance money split 50-50

TACOMA, Wash. - A Washington judge says it may be "legal fiction," but for the purposes of handling the life insurance policies of Josh and Susan Powell, Susan Powell is still alive.

Last week, a U.S. District judge issued an order about who should get the money from three separate life insurance policies tied to Josh and Susan Powell. The ruling gave each side - the father of Susan Cox Powell and three family members of Josh Powell - more than $750,000.

Josh Powell's New York Life policy, worth over $1 million plus interest, will be split 50-50 among Chuck Cox, Susan Powell's father, and three members of Josh Powell's family that were listed as benefactors: his brothers Michael and John and his sister Alina.
 ::snipping3::
The second insurance policy in question was Josh Powell's Beneficial Life Policy. The court noted that while Powell's New York policy was changed numerous times after his wife went missing, Josh Powell's Beneficial policy was not touched. Susan Powell was the primary benefactor and, because Josh Powell legally preceded her in death, Susan Powell's conservator will get all of $500,000 policy and interest, the judge ruled.
 ::snipping3::
The third life insurance policy in question is Susan Powell's $1 million policy from New York Life that lists Josh Powell as the primary benefactor and her and Josh Powell's trust as the second beneficiary. With interest, the trust is now worth more than $2 million.

That trust, however, is still the subject of a court challenge in Utah. Currently, Cox is the sole benefactor of the trust and would receive 100 percent of the money. But Josh Powell's mother, Teri Powell, and his sister, Alina Powell, contend they were illegally removed from the trust and are challenging the issue in court. West said they believe that money should also be split 50-50.
 ::snipping3::
Steven Powell, Josh Powell's father who was recently released from prison after serving 30 months for taking voyeuristic pictures of two neighbor girls, will not be receiving any of the life insurance money in question, he said.

Susan Powell parents to search former home of Steven Powell with cadaver dogs
Published: Tuesday, May 20 2014 12:57 p.m. MDT
Updated: 3 hours ago

PUYALLUP, Washington — The parents of Susan Cox Powell plan to go through Steven Powell's former house with cadaver dogs.

The house where Steven Powell was convicted of taking nude and semi-nude pictures of two young neighbor girls with a telephoto lens is now owned by the victims' family as part of the civil judgment against him. The house is currently vacant.

The family of Susan Powell, the Utah mother who has been missing since 2009, has become friends with the family of the young girls, according to Seattle-based attorney Anne Bremner, the attorney for both families. And now that the girls' family owns the house, they are allowing the Coxes to go through it — no search warrant needed.

Search for Susan Powell expected at Steven Powell's former home
May 20, 2014   Updated 1 hour ago

SEATTLE — Private investigators with cadaver dogs will search a former home of Susan Powell's father-in-law, an attorney for the long-missing woman's family said Tuesday.

A date for the search of Steve Powell's former Puyallup home has not been set, but it will happen in the next few weeks, Seattle attorney Ann Bremner said.
 ::snipping3::
Father Steve Powell was forced to surrender his house during a court settlement after being convicted of taking videos of young neighbor girls undressing and using the bathroom. Bremner won a $2 million judgment on behalf of the girls and said the girl's family bought the home at auction and will give Susan Powell's family access to it. The home still has many of Steve Powell's belongings that he hasn't claimed.

Susan Powell's relatives "have been given unfettered access to that house by the girls' family," Bremner said. "There is no longer a need for a search warrant for the house or contents as (Steve Powell) no longer owns it."

MuffyBee, it was generous of the girls' family to make the house and property available for a thorough search with cadaver dogs.  Maybe, at some point, Susan was there.  Another area was searched recently--Josh Powell’s aunt and uncle were renting the property in 2009--nothing was found.  Her father is determined to find her.  I hope he finds some measure of peace of mind soon.

Susan Powell's Parents Search For Clues In Father-In-Law's Former Home (EXCLUSIVE)
Posted:  05/27/2014 5:29 pm EDT    Updated:  05/27/2014 5:59 pm EDT   

The parents of Susan Cox Powell, the missing Utah mother of two, have started to comb through her father-in-law's former home in Washington state, where they have found not only tragic reminders of the past but also potential clues to her disappearance.

Bike helmets meant to protect two small heads, a beloved children's book, computer files and articles of clothing were among the items recovered over Memorial Day weekend from Steven Powell's former residence.
 ::snipping3::
The Cox family told HuffPost that among the items of interest they found is a box that contains computer-coding files. The family said they hope the files might contain information that could help the FBI get at files on a heavily encrypted computer previously owned by Josh Powell, as investigation agents have been struggling to access those for several years.
 ::snipping3::
According to Olsen, Susan Powell's family plans to conduct a thorough search of the premises to see if she is buried there. In the coming weeks, a network of volunteers, including trained dog handlers, will comb the 3,200-square foot house and the surrounding property.

"I don't know if we'll find her here or not, but I know I have to continue the search, and this house has never been searched by dogs," said Susan Powell's father, Chuck Cox.

Attorneys fight another round over Susan Powell trust money
Published: Wednesday, May 28 2014 4:35 p.m. MDT
Updated: Wednesday, May 28 2014 4:39 p.m. MDT

SALT LAKE CITY — Saying that there is no reason not to believe he will fulfill his duties as conservator of his daughter's estate appropriately, attorneys for Chuck Cox have fired back at Alina and Terrica Powell.

Last week, a U.S. District judge issued an order about who should get the money from three separate life insurance policies tied to Josh Powell and his missing wife, Susan Cox Powell. But a trust established by Josh and Susan Powell remains in dispute in Utah.

Currently, Cox is the sole benefactor of the trust and would receive 100 percent of the money, or about $2.3 million. Terrica Powell, Josh Powell's mother, would still receive more than $756,000 from the other policies.

But Terrica Powell and Alina Powell, Josh Powell's sister, contend they were illegally removed from the trust and are challenging the issue in court. At the very least, they want the court to require Cox to obtain court approval for any expenditures or distribution of conservatorship assets.

In new court papers filed Wednesday, Cox's attorney argues that the conservatorship and trust are good the way they currently are, and that his client has not embezzled and will not misappropriate funds.

FBI says it found child porn on Josh Powell’s computer in 2010
Investigation » Porn was discovered in search for Susan Powell.
June 7, 2014


FBI documents say investigators found child pornography on Josh Powell’s computer at least 17 months before he killed his children and himself.

The FBI had two open investigations into Powell at the time of his death, the documents show. One was into the disappearance of his wife, Susan Powell. The second investigation was for what the FBI suspected was possession of child pornography.

Anne Bremner, an attorney for Susan Powell’s parents, said the family was never told the FBI was investigating Josh Powell for child pornography. When told by The Tribune, Bremner was frustrated more information about that aspect wasn’t shared with the Washington Department of Social and Health Services, who was in charge of the custody case for Josh and Susan Powell’s two sons.

Bremner said if that agency had known the FBI suspected child pornography was on Josh Powell’s computer, it "never would have let him have those kids."


 ::snipping3::

Melodie Rydalch, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney in Utah, said the child pornography information was forwarded to authorities in Washington state because the computers were seized when authorities served a search warrant there.

FBI spokespeople declined to answer questions about the documents or the Powell case.

It’s not the first time Josh Powell has been associated with child pornography.

At hearings in the state of Washington to determine custody of his children, then-Assistant Washington Attorney General John M. Long said Josh Powell was under investigation for child pornography after cartoon images of incest between mothers and children were found on his computer in late 2009 or early 2010.

In an interview Thursday, Long said neither the FBI nor other law enforcement told him anything other than that the cartoon images were found.

"Obviously, if there was something more serious than that it would have changed the whole dynamic of the" child-custody case, Long said. Long has since retired from the Washington attorney general’s office.

The Tribune obtained the documents through the Freedom of Information Act, but the file has heavy redactions and the FBI omitted pages out of concerns about privacy and safeguarding FBI procedures and ongoing cases. The documents do not specify what the images showed or depicted.

The legal status of animated child pornography can be murky. A federal statute makes it a crime to possess animated images depicting children in sexually explicit activity, but those cases tend to bring legal challenges based on what the images depict and whether they can be considered free speech.

"The question is," said University of Utah law professor Paul Cassell, " ‘Are the images specifically graphic enough to qualify as child pornography?’ "

The FBI opened the child pornography case on Sept. 10, 2010. It appears the FBI was trying to discover whether there were more compromising images on Josh Powell’s computer, but was stymied. Josh Powell encrypted much of the data on his computer.

West Valley City police have said that no one — either in the federal government or the private sector — has been able to decode the encryption Josh Powell used.

SALT LAKE CITY — Investigators found child pornography on Josh Powell’s computer at least 17 months before he killed his children and himself, according to FBI documents obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune.

The paper reported Saturday that documents show the FBI was investigating Powell in the disappearance of his wife, Susan Powell, who was last seen at her West Valley City, Utah, home on Dec. 6, 2009, as well as for possession of child pornography.

Anne Bremner, an attorney for Susan Powell’s parents, said the family was never told the FBI was investigating Josh Powell for child pornography. If the state of Washington’s Department of Social and Health Services had known about the suspected child pornography, Bremner said, it “never would have let him have those kids.”
 ::snipping3::
Powell for years had been considered a person of interest in his wife’s disappearance, and eventually he moved back to the Puyallup area, where both his father and his wife’s parents lived.

He lost custody of the boys after his father was arrested for possessing child pornography in another house they previously shared. The boys were in the custody of the state, but living with Susan Powell’s parents. However, Josh Powell was allowed supervised visitation.

Shortly before their deaths, Charlie and Braden Powell had begun talking to their grandparents about things they remembered from the night their mother vanished, a lawyer for the grandparents has said.

On the day of the fire, a state contract worker from Foster Care Resource Network brought the boys for a visit to Powell’s house. Powell answered the door, pulled the boys inside, slammed the door and locked it. The caseworker banged on doors and windows and called 911, but soon smelled gasoline and the fire erupted.

Josh Powell had been previously linked to child pornography, The Tribune reported. At hearings in Washington state to determine custody of his children, then-Assistant Washington Attorney General John M. Long said Powell was under investigation for child pornography after cartoon images of incest between mothers and children were found on his computer in late 2009 or early 2010.

The paper reported that the FBI appeared to be trying to discover what other images might be on Josh Powell’s computer, but the machine had been successfully encrypted by Powell.

Review: New book about Susan Powell’s disappearance is awful, well-told tale
First Published May 16 2014 01:49 pm • Last Updated May 20 2014 02:22 pm

Quote
How well West Valley City police are portrayed is in the eye of the reader. Again, Morris and Olsen tell the facts, and the facts are that West Valley City investigated the disappearance for 3 ˝ years. But the strategy of waiting for Josh to incriminate himself didn’t work.
 
In a scene shortly after Josh kills Charlie, Braden and then himself, a sobbing West Valley City police Chief Buzz Nielsen tells Susan’s father "You were right all along" about Josh. Chuck Cox’s reaction is probably the same one readers will have.

Appellate court: Steven Powell faces new trial for child porn
Published: Jun 10, 2014 at 2:43 PM PDT  Last Updated: Jun 10, 2014 at 4:37 PM PDT

TACOMA, Wash. - The state Court of Appeals has reinstated a child pornography charge against Steven Powell that was dismissed during his 2012 voyeurism trial for shooting photos and video of two young neighbor girls using the bathroom.

Powell, 64, was recently released from prison after serving 30 months for his voyeurism convictions. He is the father of Josh Powell, who killed his two young sons and himself in a 2012 inferno at his home while under investigation for the disappearance of his wife Susan Powell.

Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said Steven Powell has 30 days to appeal the reinstatement of the child pornography charge to the state Supreme Court.

If Powell doesn't appeal, Lindquist says he plans to bring him to trial on the child porn charge. If he does appeal, it would mean more months of delay while waiting for the Supreme Court to rule.
 ::snipping3::
The original trial judge in that case dismissed the child pornography charge. But this week's ruling by the three-judge state Court of Appeals says that the judge relied on an outdated statute in dismissing the charge, and that Powell should stand trial on the charge.

"We're pleased that appellate court agrees that we were right on the law," Lindquist said.

Lindquist says the pornography found in Powell's possession included images from the Internet and also images of the two young neighbor girls. He says Powell was facing up to five additional years in prison if he had been convicted of the child pornography charge.

Parents of missing woman vie for insurance funds
July 8, 2014

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah judge says he'll rule later about whether the father of a Utah mom missing for nearly five years had the authority to make him and his wife the sole beneficiaries of a trust that could soon have about $2 million in life insurance proceeds.

Judge L.A. Dever listened to 1 1/2 hours of arguments from attorneys Tuesday about a trust set up by Susan Powell and her husband Josh Powell before she went missing in 2009.

Josh Powell is believed to have killed Susan Powell in Utah before killed himself and the couple's boys in Washington.

Dever must decide if Susan Powell's father, Charles Cox, had the right to amend the trust last year to cut out Josh Powell's mother and sister.

Utah judge postpones ruling on Susan Powell estate dispute
Disappearance » Chuck Cox is “lining his own pockets,” a lawyer says.

July 8, 2014

The family of Josh Powell on Tuesday again asked a 3rd District Court judge to return them trustees of Josh and Susan Powell’s estate.

Judge L.A. Dever said he will issue a written ruling later, but he denied a motion from the Powell family attorney to require the Coxes to post a surety bond to safeguard against mismanagement. Dever said there was no evidence Chuck Cox, Susan Powell’s father, had thus far mismanaged any holdings.
The families of Josh Powell and his missing wife Susan are arguing over who should be the trustees and beneficiaries of two legal entities holding the couple’s assets: a conservatorship and a trust. The conservatorship is holding Susan Powell’s assets while she remains missing. The trust holds the joint assets of Josh and Susan Powell that were to be distributed in the event both of them died.

Together the trust and conservatorship hold about $2.3 million in life insurance proceeds, which are accumulating interest, as well as the Powell home in West Valley City.

Chuck Cox is the conservator for this daughter and used that authority to change the terms of the trust. Terrica and Alina Powell — Josh’s mother and sister, respectively — contend the terms of those agencies were illegally changed to remove them as trustees or beneficiaries.

Their Utah lawyer, Joshua Lee, said being conservator of Susan Powell’s estate does not give Cox all the powers that his daughter had, and only Susan Powell had the authority to amend the trust.

"A conservator can amend the trust only in the case of incapacity," Lee told Dever, citing the terms of the trust.

Lee also accused Cox of having a conflict of interest because he used his authority as conservator to make his wife and himself the lone trustees. Lee said Cox is "lining his own pockets."

But Cox’s attorney, Ted Buck, told Dever that Cox has an obligation to do what is best for his daughter, and much has changed since the trust was written in 2009.

"Do we think that Susan Powell would have those same priorities after what has happened since 2009?" Buck said. "I don’t think so."


 ::snipping3::

Cox can only spent trust money to maintain assets, such as paying the property taxes on the West Valley City home. Utah law says Susan Powell can be declared dead after five years, at which time the assets could be distributed.

Cox and his wife Judy traveled from their home in Puyallup, Wash., to attend Tuesday’s hearing in Salt Lake City.

In the past, Chuck Cox has said he believes his daughter is dead. On Tuesday, he sounded more optimistic.

"I’m trying to protect my daughter’s assets," Chuck Cox told reporters after the hearing, "so when my daughter comes back and she’s found there will be something for her to come back to."

Attorneys for the Powells have taken pains to point out that Josh Powell’s father, Steve Powell, is not a party in the litigation and does not stand to receive any money. Steve Powell was convicted in 2012 of 14 counts of voyeurism for photographing neighbor girls in various states of undress.

Steve Powell declares bankruptcy
The Salt Lake Tribune
First Published Jul 11 2014 05:51 pm • Last Updated Jul 12 2014 10:29 pm    
   
Steve Powell, whose daughter-in-law disappeared in Utah in 2009, has declared bankruptcy.
 
Powell filed his bankruptcy petition June 19 in federal court in Tacoma, Wash. He lists $289,947 in assets and $2.1 million in liabilities.

Those liabilities include a $1.8 million judgment against Powell for photographing two neighbor girls in various states of undress. To satisfy the judgment, payable to the girls’ mother, the Pierce County, Wash., Sheriff’s Department auctioned Powell’s house in Puyallup.
 
However, Powell listed the $270,000 house as an asset and says in his bankruptcy papers he believes the auction and the judgment are "void."
 
Powell also says in the papers that he may have a claim for damages against the sheriff, the West Valley City Police Department, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.

Wrongful-death suit involving Powell children to go forward

A Pierce County judge on Friday refused to dismiss a wrongful-death lawsuit brought against the state Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) by the maternal grandparents of Charlie and Braden Powell.

An attorney for the state argued that the case should be thrown out before trial, saying that Chuck and Judy Cox’s claims were without merit.

But Superior Court Judge Jerry Costello agreed with attorneys for the Coxes that the case should go to a jury.

“The Cox family will have their day in court,” Costello said in denying the state’s motion for summary judgment.
 ::snipping3::
Costello did not rule on the merits of either argument. He simply decided those questions should be put to a jury.

The case is scheduled to go to trial next month.

Judge sides with missing mom's parents in dispute
September 3, 2014

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah judge has sided with the parents of missing mother Susan Powell, ruling that her father was within his bounds to cut out Josh Powell's mother and sister out from a trust that has $2 million in life-insurance proceeds.

Third District Judge L.A. Dever issued the ruling Wednesday, nearly two months after he heard arguments about the case.

The money is set to flow into a trust, created by Susan Powell and her husband, Josh Powell, this December when she is presumed legally dead — five years after her disappearance.

Charles Cox, designated as conservator of the trust, made the amendments last year.

The Powell's attorney argued that the proceeds should be split evenly between the two families as originally set up.

Susan Powell's father wins life insurance legal battle but is scolded in process
September 3, 2014

SALT LAKE CITY — A 3rd District judge has ruled in favor of Susan Powell's father, Chuck Cox, in his fight over conservatorship of his daughter's life insurance money.

Judge L.A. Dever on Wednesday denied a request by Terrica and Alina Powell, Josh Powell's mother and sister, to void Cox's declaration making him the sole beneficiary of a trust Josh and Susan Powell set up, effectively cutting out Terrica and Alina Powell as beneficiaries of $2.3 million in life insurance proceeds.

Susan Powell is presumed to have been murdered by her husband, Josh Powell. Her body, however, has never been found. Josh Powell later killed himself and the couple's two young sons.

But Dever also found several faults with Cox's legal arguments and seemed to indicate in his ruling that the reason he was ruling in his favor is because the Powells simply waited too long to file their appeal.

Dever found fault with Cox's argument that his daughter was legally "incapacitated" because he did not provide required proof of her incapacity.

"The court is not persuaded by Cox's argument," the judge wrote in his decision. "Cox fails to provide any legal basis that the language he used in his Motion for Order somehow infers a finding of incapacity in the order."

The judge said Cox misconstrued Utah law as it applies to conservatorship and scolded him for failing "to provide any legitimate argument" for why he was not required to follow the requirements of the trust.

"Cox was appointed conservator of Susan's estate because of a qualifying event, i.e., her disappearance," the judge wrote.

One of the key issues in the case was when Susan Powell, who has been missing from her West Valley home since 2009, would be declared legally dead.

"It is undisputed that pursuant to the laws of this state that Susan is not dead and therefore, is deemed the 'surviving grantor,'" Dever stated in his ruling.

Under state law, a person must be missing a minimum of five years in order to be declared legally dead. Powell disappeared on Dec. 6, 2009.

Nevertheless, the judge said he could not overlook the fact that Cox was granted conservatorship over his daughter's estate by another judge in January of 2013, as well as "the fact that the Powells did not file any objection or motion" until September of that year.

Thus, Cox had the power under the January 2013 ruling to amend the trust as he saw fit, and because Dever said he was not asked to rule on the validity of that ruling, he denied the Powells' request.

Utah judge sides with Susan Powell’s parents in $2.3 million estate fight
Posted 5:05 PM, September 3, 2014

 ::snipping3::
The ruling by Utah 3rd District Court Judge L.A. Dever means the mother and sister of Josh Powell will be unable to receive the assets in Josh and Susan Powell’s trust when Susan is declared dead.

The trust includes $2.3 million in life insurance awards and the couple’s home in West Valley City, Utah.

The Salt Lake Tribune said Terrica and Alina Powell — Josh Powell’s mom and sister — are likely to appeal the ruling.

According to the newspaper, the judge said Susan’s father, Chuck Cox, should have never been put in charge of the estate in January 2013 and that he did not have authority to remove the Powell family as beneficiaries. However, Dever said the Powell family had 30 days to challenge his appointment and they did not challenge it in time.

Susan Cox Powell was last seen Dec. 6, 2009, at her West Valley City, Utah, home. Her husband Josh was the only person of interest in her disappearance; he killed their two children and himself on Feb. 5, 2012, at their home in Graham, Wash.

The newspaper said Susan Powell will probably be declared dead in December, as Utah law allows for a person to be declared dead five years after anyone last saw the person alive.

Last Updated: Sep 5, 2014 at 1:22 PM PDT


WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah - The family who is currently renting the home formerly owned by Josh and Susan Powell says they have moved out.

Joanna Aeosana says since she and her family moved in two months ago numerous mysterious events have occurred inside the house. She says the company who leased the house to her never told her about the history of the home.

In 2009, Susan Cox Powell disappeared from the home and was never seen again. Her husband Josh Powell was the only person of interest in the case, but later ended up killing himself and the couples' two sons in a house fire in Graham, Wash.

Aeosana says she was unaware of the story of the Powells and says almost from the moment her family moved in, strange things have been happening.

"I hear people crying when I'm showering," she told KUTV News.

Aeosana also says the garage door opens and closes on its own and she sometimes feels like someone is watching her.

Most recently, she said her 1-year-old son was talking to an empty swing in the front yard of the home saying, "Go away, leave me alone."

Aoesana says she didn't know about the history of the home until a neighbor told her.

In the past few days, she and her family have moved out and are asking that the company who leased out the home, American Homes 4 Rent, help them find a different home, or allow them to get out of the lease. The home is being held in a trust as the details of the estate are being worked out.

Real estate agents are not required to disclose the personal history of the home in Utah, but Aeosana says they should have a moral or ethical obligation to do so, especially in the case of the Powell home.

TACOMA, Wash., Sept. 24 (UPI) -- The trial for a wrongful death lawsuit against the state of Washington for the deaths of Susan Cox Powell's two children was delayed.

The trial was set to begin Monday in Pierce County, Wash. It was delayed, though the rescheduled date wasn't reported.

Josh Powell's family asks judge to declare Susan Powell 'dead'
Published: Friday, Oct. 3 2014 11:32 p.m. MDT
Updated: Friday, Oct. 3 2014 11:32 p.m. MDT

SALT LAKE CITY — The mother and sister of Josh Powell want a judge to declare that Susan Cox Powell's death occurred before March of 2013.

Terrica Powell and Alina Powell, who are defined in court documents as the representatives of the estate of Michael Powell, filed a complaint in 3rd District Court Friday against Chuck Cox, the father of Susan Powell, the missing West Valley mother.

The legal action is the latest round in the ongoing battle over Josh and Susan Powell's life insurance money.

Last month, a 3rd District judge ruled in favor of Cox in his fight over conservatorship of his daughter's estate, denying a request by Terrica and Alina Powell to void Cox's declaration making him the sole beneficiary of a trust Josh and Susan Powell set up, effectively cutting out Terrica and Alina Powell as beneficiaries of $2.3 million in life insurance proceeds.

Susan Powell is presumed to have been murdered by her husband, Josh Powell. Her body, however, has never been found. Josh Powell later killed himself and the couple's two young sons.

Under state law, a person must be missing for a minimum of five years in order to be declared legally dead. Powell disappeared on Dec. 6, 2009.

Steven Powell arrested, child pornography charges reinstated
Posted 11:57 AM, October 27, 2014, by Q13 FOX News Staff, Updated at 12:18pm, October 27, 2014   
TACOMA — Steven Powell, the father-in-law of the late Susan Cox Powell, was arrested Monday morning when a possession of child pornography charge levied against him was reinstated.

The 2012 charge of possessing depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct in the second degree was initially dismissed because a judge decided the images Powell possessed of two neighborhood girls in their bathroom did not constitute “sexually explicit conduct,” Pierce County prosecutors said.

However, that ruling was overturned by the Washington Court of Appeals. Now, Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist says the original charges should be again put in place.

“We were always confident the child pornography charges were proper, and we are pleased the higher court agreed,” Lindquist said. “Mr. Powell should be fully accountable for grossly violating the privacy of his young neighbors.”

Steven Powell's latest behavior an 'obvious risk' to community, new report says
Published: Tuesday, Nov. 11 2014 4:00 p.m. MST
Updated: Wednesday, Nov. 12 2014 6:46 a.m. MST

TACOMA, Wash. — Steven Powell "continues to put the community at risk" with violations of his parole, a new progress report from the Washington Department of Corrections states.

"Mr. Powell has made no attempts or shown any desire to comply with the requirements of supervision or change his behavior" since he was released from prison in March after serving 30 months for his conviction on multiple counts of voyeurism, the report states.

It further noted that Powell's actions and lack of cooperation with officials since being released from prison do not allow corrections officials to "thoroughly monitor his activities in order to maintain the safety of his victim(s) and the community.

"Mr. Powell's adjustment to supervision can only be described as extremely poor," the report says, while further noting that his behavior "constituted an obvious risk to officer and community safety."

The report recommends 60 days of "total confinement" for Powell. A court hearing on his parole violations is scheduled for Nov. 21.

The violation is the latest in a series of legal troubles Powell has been involved with since being released eight months ago. Last month, prosecutors refiled a charge of possession of child pornography against him in Pierce County Superior Court after an appeals court determined that the charge was wrongly dismissed by a judge during Powell's original 2012 trial. Powell is accused of taking inappropriate pictures of two neighbor girls, ages 10 and 8, using a telephoto lens to peek into their home. If convicted of that charge, Powell could be sent back to prison for another five years.

A pretrial hearing on the refiled charge is scheduled for Wednesday.

Judge: Steven Powell in violation of court order, porn trial set
Published: Nov 26, 2014 at 10:34 AM PST  Last Updated: Nov 26, 2014 at 11:53 AM PST

TACOMA, Wash. - A judge has found that the father-in-law of missing Utah woman Susan Powell is in violation of a court order for failing to get mandated sexual deviancy treatment and has been ordered to spend an additional 40 days in jail.

The ruling was handed down at a Wednesday morning hearing in Pierce County Superior Court.

A state corrections officer earlier reported that Steven Powell continues to put the community at risk by failing to comply with court-ordered treatment. The officer recommended that Powell spend 60 days in jail.

Steven Powell was convicted of voyeurism in 2012 and served 30 months in prison for shooting photos and video of young neighbor girls using the bathroom.

Last month, Pierce County prosecutors reinstated a child pornography charge against Powell that had been dismissed during a 2012 trial. The judge scheduled that trial for next year at Wednesday's hearing.

Steven Powell given more jail time for refusing sexual deviancy treatment
26, 2014 Updated 7 hours ago

A Pierce County judge on Wednesday ordered Steven Powell to serve 40 days in jail for refusing to undergo mandated sexual deviancy treatment.

Superior Court Judge Ronald Culpepper also insisted Powell participate in his treatment and refused to lower his bail.
 ::snipping3::
On Wednesday, officials offered to let Powell verbally discuss his sexual history rather than have it put in writing.

Powell was not refusing to complete the psychosexual evaluation but felt uncomfortable answering questions about his sexual history, defense attorney Travis Currie told the court.

“He is invoking his Fifth Amendment rights,” Currie said.

Culpepper asked whether Powell could face future criminal charges for potential crimes divulged during the exam. Deputy prosecutor Bryce Nelson said he couldn’t answer that based on a hypothetical situation.

In the end, the judge required Powell to undergo the exam and to spend 40 days in jail.

Candlelight vigil to honor murdered Cox boys, other kids who died unexpectedly
December 5, 2014 @ 5:31 pm  (Updated: 5:43 pm - 12/5/14 )

(http://www.mynorthwest.com/emedia/seattle/13/1360/136024.jpg?filter=mynw/300wide)

Saturday marks the five-year anniversary of the disappearance of Puyallup mom Susan Powell, as hundreds are expected at a candlelight vigil to honor her two slain children.

Charlie and Braden Cox died when their father Josh Powell blew up their Puyallup home Feb. 5, 2012. Powell is also believed to have killed his wife.

The boys were buried beneath a special "Angel of Hope" statue at Woodbine Cemetery in Puyallup, one of a number around the company inspired by a children's story called "The Christmas Box," Pierce County Detective Ed Troyer tells KIRO Radio's Ron and Don Show.

"Every Dec. 6 at 7 p.m., everyone goes to these statues for a short candlelight vigil to honor kids who have either died by abuse, homicide, car wreck," Troyer says.

Newest Susan Powell legal fight: When to declare her dead
December 5, 2014 Updated 4 hours ago

SALT LAKE CITY — The fifth anniversary of Susan Cox Powell’s disappearance was supposed to be a milestone — the date when Utah law allows the former Puyallup woman to be declared dead and add a measure of closure to the saga.

But as the anniversary arrives Saturday (Dec. 6), when the missing wife and mother died has turned into one more legal fight between her parents, Chuck and Judy Cox of Puyallup, and the family of her late husband, Josh Powell.

West Valley City, Utah, police believe Josh Powell kidnapped and killed his wife on Dec. 6, 2009 — the last day the 28-year-old woman was last seen alive.

But in court papers, the Coxes and the Powells are arguing over whether a judge should find Susan Powell died before May 10, 2013, a legally significant juncture that could mean millions of dollars for one side of the family or the other.

ESTATE FIGHT

Utah law states that someone “who is absent for a continuous period of five years” is presumed dead. The date of death is considered to be the end of the time period “unless there is sufficient evidence for determining that death occurred earlier,” the statute states.

Chuck and Judy Cox have no plans to ask a judge for such a declaration.

Court battle rages long after Susan Powell’s disappearance

 ::snipping3::
Now, Josh Powell’s family says they’re entitled to half of $2.3 million in proceeds from life insurance policies taken out on the couple and their two sons. They want a judge to declare that Susan Powell died the day of her disappearance: Dec. 6, 2009.

While the Powells say they are protecting their legal rights, lawyers for the family of the missing woman says they still hope she’ll be found and accused their former in-laws of trying to profit off her death.

“After arguing for years that Joshua had nothing to do with Susan’s disappearance, they are now trying to prove he killed her in hopes that they might obtain a piece of her estate,” the lawyers wrote in court documents.

Powell attorney Joshua Lee denies that, telling The Salt Lake Tribune they’re not weighing in on how she died.

If the judge finds Susan Powell died in 2009, her in-laws say it would mean they would get $1.15 million, half of what a federal judge in Washington state has decided should go to her family. U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton awarded a much smaller amount, about $793,000, to the Powells in a May ruling.

Sister Alina Powell has denied her brother killed his wife. She and her mother argue the money was originally supposed to be split between the two families and Susan Powell’s father, Charles Cox of Puyallup, wrongly shut them out last year.

Judge Mark Kouris dealt the Powells a setback Friday, denying a motion that would prevent Cox from using the money.

The Powells are also appealing another order that found they don’t have a right to the money because they waited too long to object to Cox’s actions, even though he didn’t follow all the proper procedures.

Cox attorney Anne Bremner says Susan Powell’s parents want to donate the money to charity.

“They want to see at least some good come out of this horrible tragedy,” she said.

Friday , January 09, 2015 - 6:52 PM

SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah court has dismissed an appeal filed by the family of Josh Powell in a $2.3 million life insurance case, saying a lower court decision isn’t final yet.

The order handed down this week says Josh Powell’s mother and sister can re-file their case in the future. They are fighting to get part of the proceeds from life insurance policies on missing mother Susan Powell as well as her husband and children.

Susan Cox Powell estate battle is settled
Posted 5:15 pm, March 26, 2015, by Ben Winslow, Updated at 07:21am, March 27, 2015

SALT LAKE CITY — One of the biggest cases in Utah has apparently reached a final chapter.

In a brief court hearing in 3rd District Court, lawyers for the families of Susan Cox Powell and her husband, Josh Powell, announced a settlement in the lengthy and sometimes contentious battle over her estate.

“We mediated late in to the evening, resolved the issues and will withdraw the motion,” Powell family attorney Josh Lee told Judge Barry Lawrence at a hearing Thursday.

“You take the wind out of my sails, counsel,” said Judge Lee, who had braced for hours of arguments. “Does that resolve all disputes?”

It apparently did, as lawyers confirmed to FOX 13 outside court. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but an attorney for Susan’s parents, Chuck and Judy Cox, did confirm some details:
•Chuck Cox will remain in control of her estate;
•Chuck Cox will make any determination of when to ask a court to declare Susan legally dead, not the family of Josh Powell (who had filed a lawsuit over it);

The battle over control of Susan’s estate, and potentially millions in life insurance money had stretched all the way to the Utah Court of Appeals and the Utah Supreme Court. Josh Powell’s mother, Terrica, and sister, Alina, had filed a lawsuit seeking to declare Susan legally dead in order to obtain a share of any life insurance money.

As they left court, Chuck and Judy Cox declined to comment on the settlement.

“I believe the Coxes are ready to move on,” Cox family attorney Evan Bariault told FOX 13 on Thursday. “I believe the Powells are ready to move on. Both parties recognize it and I believe this allows them to do that.”

SALT LAKE CITY — One of the biggest cases in Utah has apparently reached a final chapter.

In a brief court hearing in 3rd District Court, lawyers for the families of Susan Cox Powell and her husband, Josh Powell, announced a settlement in the lengthy and sometimes contentious battle over her estate.

“We mediated late in to the evening, resolved the issues and will withdraw the motion,” Powell family attorney Josh Lee told Judge Barry Lawrence at a hearing Thursday.

“You take the wind out of my sails, counsel,” said Judge Lee, who had braced for hours of arguments. “Does that resolve all disputes?”

It apparently did, as lawyers confirmed to FOX 13 outside court. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but an attorney for Susan’s parents, Chuck and Judy Cox, did confirm some details:
•Chuck Cox will remain in control of her estate;
•Chuck Cox will make any determination of when to ask a court to declare Susan legally dead, not the family of Josh Powell (who had filed a lawsuit over it);

The battle over control of Susan’s estate, and potentially millions in life insurance money had stretched all the way to the Utah Court of Appeals and the Utah Supreme Court. Josh Powell’s mother, Terrica, and sister, Alina, had filed a lawsuit seeking to declare Susan legally dead in order to obtain a share of any life insurance money.

As they left court, Chuck and Judy Cox declined to comment on the settlement.

“I believe the Coxes are ready to move on,” Cox family attorney Evan Bariault told FOX 13 on Thursday. “I believe the Powells are ready to move on. Both parties recognize it and I believe this allows them to do that.”

grace-land, you are probably correct.  Sometimes the money is just not worth the battle.
Whatever decision Susan's family made, I applaud them for their courage and tenacity.

Steven Powell renews claims that 2011 search of his house was illegal
Published: Tuesday, June 23 2015 12:00 p.m. MDT
Updated: yesterday

TACOMA, Wash. — On the eve of his child pornography trial, Steven Powell is once again claiming the search of his Puyallup, Washington, home in August 2011 was illegal.

In October, prosecutors refiled a charge of possession of child pornography against Powell, 64, in Pierce County Superior Court after an appeals court determined that the charge was wrongly dismissed by a judge during Powell's original 2012 trial.

The father of Josh Powell is accused of taking inappropriate pictures of two neighbor girls, ages 10 and 8, using a telephoto lens from his bedroom peering into their home. If convicted, Powell — who already served 30 months in prison after being convicted of voyeurism — could be sentenced to an additional five years.

Powell's trial was scheduled to begin Monday but was continued until next week after he filed a 127-page motion claiming the search warrant served by West Valley police in Utah on his Puyallup home was illegal and that all evidence collected as a result of the warrant should be tossed.
 ::snipping3::
Powell's new motion will be considered by a judge on Monday.

Josh Powell murdered his two young sons, Charlie and Braden, in 2012 before killing himself. Susan Powell's body has never been found.

Steven Powell trial on child porn charge opens
Posted 5:57 PM, July 7, 2015, by John Hopperstad, Updated at 06:10pm, July 7, 2015

TACOMA — The child pornography trial of Steven Powell started Tuesday.

Powell is the father of Josh Powell, who killed his two young boys and himself in Graham while he was being investigated for possibly killing his wife, Susan Cox Powell, in Utah.

“This case is about the defendant’s secret,” said deputy Pierce County prosecutor Bryce Nelson during opening arguments.
 
The case goes back to 2011 when police first searched Steven Powell’s home in Graham. They were looking for evidence in the Susan Cox Powell investigation. She had vanished, and detectives believed her husband Josh, who was living with his dad at the time, was involved in her disappearance.

Instead, they found several pictures and videos of two young neighbor girls in their bathroom.

Prosecutors say there were hundreds of photos showing the girls naked in the bath, but the family next door apparently never knew they were being victimized.

“What they or their mom did not know was that someone was watching them, and taking video of them,” said Nelson. “That was Steven Powell.”
::snipping3::
Now Steven Powell is on trial again, and trying to spare himself from serving even more prison time.

His attorney, Travis Currie, told jurors to keep an open mind.

“What you’ve heard is a story,” said Currie. “Like any good story, it has drama, victims, and a villain. But it’s not evidence.”

If convicted, Powell faces up to another five years behind bars.

The trial is scheduled to resume on Thursday.

TACOMA — Steven Powell’s daughter testified against him in court Thursday as he faces a charge of possession of child pornography.

While investigating the disappearance of Steven Powell’s daughter-in-law, Susan Cox Powell, detectives found what they said was thousands of images of nude girls.

On Thursday, the mother of two young neighbor girls of Powell fought back tears on the stand as she talked about the photos found in Powell’s home. The photos apparently were taken of the girls through a window as they were were bathing in their home.

“The first one is my oldest daughter,” she said. “The second one is my oldest daughter. The third one is a picture of both of the children.”

Steven Powell’s daughter, Jennifer Graves, also took the stand against her father.

After court was dismissed, she spoke more about her estranged dad.

“For the sake of society and for himself,” Graves said, “I think it’s better if he just remain behind bars. I’d like to see that outcome.”

TACOMA,Wash. (AP) — Jurors have begun deliberating in the child pornography trial for Steven Powell.

Powell, 64, is on trial for possessing explicit images of two neighbor girls, ages 8 and 10, that prosecutors say were taken from a bedroom window of his home in 2006 and 2007. The trial began last week and jurors started deliberations Monday.

Powell was convicted on 14 counts of voyeurism in 2012 for shooting video and still pictures of the girls as they used a family bathroom next door. The child porn charges were thrown out by a superior court judge before the voyeurism trial but were reinstated by an appeals court.

Posted 4:27 PM, August 21, 2015, by Q13 FOX News Staff, Updated at 06:44pm, August 21, 2015

TACOMA — Steven Powell, 65, was sentenced Friday to five years in prison for possession of child pornography.

A Pierce County Superior Court jury had convicted Powell on July 13.

Just before sentencing, Powell issued a long statement in which he argued investigators and prosecutors targeted him because they could not find any evidence that his son, Josh Powell, had been involved in the disappearance of Josh’s wife, Susan Cox Powell.

[The full statement by Powell is in the video at the end of this story.]

Steven Powell also indicated in his statement that he plans to appeal his conviction.

Steven Powell has his say before being sentenced

TACOMA, Wash. —
Steven Powell nodded and waved at a KIRO 7 camera while he waited to hear his sentence on child porn charges.

A few minutes later, he read a rambling, eight-minute-long statement, blaming his conviction on the investigation into his son Josh and the disappearance of Josh's wife, Susan Cox Powell.

“The next step for these amateurish investigators from the FBI, et al, was to find a pretext to attack me because Josh Powell and his sons were living with me,” Powell said as he stood dressed in gray jail clothing.
 ::snipping3::
In his statement, Powell never apologized for the crimes,  instead defending his son Josh, who killed himself and his sons Charlie and Braden in a fiery explosion in February 2012.

“Josh Powell lived for his sons,” Powell said. “He was an innocent man up to the last day of his life."

Josh Powell was considered a suspect in the disappearance of his wife, Susan, who vanished in West Valley City, Utah, in December, 2009.

Frank Cuthbertson sentenced Powell to the longest allowable prison term, five years, criticizing him for using his sentencing as a forum for his complaints.

“Because you are so narcissistic that you indulged your own pleasures at the expense of your neighbors and their children,” Cuthbertson told Powell.

Powell will get credit for about 17 months spent in jail awaiting trial.

Judge dismisses lawsuit against state in death of Susan Powell’s boys

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit brought against the state in the wake of the deaths of Charlie and Braden Powell, ruling that social workers were not at fault for the boys’ deaths at the hands of their father, Josh Powell.

U.S. District Court Judge Ronald Leighton issued his 29-page decision Tuesday.

Leighton said he was sympathetic to Charles and Judy Cox of Puyallup, who sued the state Department of Social and Health Services on behalf of their dead grandsons.

“The court feels immense sorrow for the Cox family’s losses and the heartbreak they have been forced to weather,” the judge wrote in dismissing the suit without trial.

But Leighton ruled that social workers who worked on the boys’ case enjoyed “absolute immunity” from liability in their deaths.
 ::snipping3::
Bremner said Tuesday that she and the Coxes are weighing their options, which include asking Leighton to reconsider his ruling or taking the case to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

“We believe the case is worth fighting for, that our clients are worth fighting for, and, certainly, that those boys are worth fighting for,” she said.

The Grandfather of Braden and Charlie saw the writing on the wall.


Chuck Cox: ‘Too many warning signs’ regarding Josh Powell
Posted: 12:20 p.m. Monday, Feb. 6, 2012


<snipped>

Chuck Cox said it’s clearer than ever, in his mind, that Powell was responsible for the disappearance of Susan Cox Powell – the Coxes' daughter and Powell’s wife – in Utah two years ago. He said he thought Powell was feeling pressure from the investigation into his wife’s disappearance, in which police had called Powell a person of interest.
 
“He was going to lose in his way,” Chuck Cox said. “It was cowardly.”
 
Cox said he warned police, social workers, lawyers and anyone else who would listen that he felt Powell might try something desperate.
 
“We felt that if he – Josh – felt that there was no hope -- that he was losing, or was gonna end up in jail or something – that he would do something very desperate and could possibly harm the children or take them with him in a murder-suicide thing,” Cox said. “Well, there you go.”
 
Powell, despite being the only person of interest in the case, had refused to cooperate with detectives. For that reason and many others, Chuck Cox said he thinks the deaths of his grandsons could have, and should have, been avoided.
 
“There were too many warning signs that were known, but due to legal limitations, were unable to be acted upon,” he said. “So we ended up where we ended up.”

LONG SHOT---but possible.

https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/utah/articles/2017-03-21/police-human-remains-found-in-canyon-appear-to-be-female

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police say human remains found in a remote part of a canyon near Salt Lake City appear to be those of a female between the ages of 30 and 50.

Unified Police Lt. Brian Lohrke says the skull and a few other bones found Sunday by a hiker in Deaf Smith Fork Canyon were near a piece of material that resembled a camouflage-patterned blanket.

The canyon sits between Big Cottonwood and Little Cottonwood canyons and the area where the remains were found doesn't see much foot traffic. Lohrke says it sits at the bottom of an 80 to 90-foot cliff.

Lohrke says forensics investigators are hoping to use dental records to identify the remains but he doesn't know how long it might be before police get more information.

Remains found in canyon identified as missing Murray woman

Thursday , April 20, 2017 - 9:43 AM
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Authorities say human remains found last month in a remote part of a canyon near Salt Lake City have been identified as a Murray woman reported missing in 2015.

Unified Police spokesman Brian Lohrke said in a statement Wednesday that after comparing dental records the remains were identified as Kellie Josephson, who was 55-years-old when she disappeared.


Officials say the remains, found by a hiker in Deaf Smith Canyon, were near a syringe and three bottles of insulin. Two bottles were still full.

Authorities say they are still investigating the cause of death.

The canyon sits between Big Cottonwood and Little Cottonwood canyons and the area where the remains were found doesn’t see much foot traffic. Lohrke says it sits at the bottom of an 80 to 90-foot cliff.

Steven Powell released from Washington state prison

By Pat Reavy  |  Posted Jul 11th, 2017 @ 4:00pm

SALT LAKE CITY — Steven Powell has been released from a Washington state prison again.

The father of Josh Powell was released Tuesday, according to Washington Department of Corrections spokeswoman Jeremy Barclay, after serving his full term, including days taken off his sentence for good behavior.

Steven Powell, 66, will now be placed under community supervision for the next two years with regular visits by a community corrections officer, which is the equivalent of a parole officer in Utah.

In August of 2015, Powell was sentenced to serve five years in prison after being convicted of possession of child pornography. It was a charge that was dismissed at Powell's original trial but later reinstated after an appeals court ruled the judge had erred in his decision to dismiss it.

‘This could be the breakthrough’ in Susan Cox Powell missing persons case
POSTED 10:07 PM, OCTOBER 25, 2017, BY BEN WINSLOW, UPDATED AT 10:48PM, OCTOBER 25, 2017

WEST VALLEY CITY -- A computer encrypted by Josh Powell may hold answers in the disappearance of his wife, Susan Cox Powell, and a private investigator tells FOX 13 they are closer to finally cracking it.

"This is the most hopeful lead we've had yet in the process of trying to find Susan," Rose Winquist, an investigator helping Susan's parents, Chuck and Judy Cox, said in an interview Wednesday.

Winquist has been working with Utah-based Decipher Forensics in an effort to decrypt Josh Powell's personal computer, which was seized by police in the midst of the high-profile missing persons investigation.

"No one, especially in 2009, would put that kind of encryption on their computer unless they were trying to hide something," she said.

After several years of trying, Winquist said they have made progress.

"We have broken through one level of the encryption. That's hugely significant," she told FOX 13.

However, the computer still has a heavier level of encryption with more work still to do.

Susan Cox Powell vanished from her West Valley City home in 2009. Her husband, Josh, was initially declared a "person of interest" in her disappearance and ultimately, a suspect. After years of scrutiny, he killed himself and the couple's children in an explosion in 2012.

Susan has never been found.

ive read that some folks think JP was a puter prog. genius
JMO,i dont think thats the case, back in 2005 i picked
a puter up from the curb, it ran linux OS and was password
protected, so a puter nerd i knew did something like this

https://askubuntu.com/questions/24006/how-do-i-reset-a-lost-administrative-password

so we get in,and find a lot of files/folders were encrypted
using truecrypt,we never got those open while i was in iowa.
as the key could be anything , EXP," gone with the wind"
"jack tripped over the candle stick",i still have the IDE Hdrive
maybe ill get it out, and look around see if there is a way to
break in, now that its 12/13 yrs later

forgt he could have encrypted the truecrypt keyword too

say this is the keyword
" vrbxgawgsqwgmgjomuzydznjekptficllwh " 

to get it start with
"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"
encrypt using rail fence 4 rails
gives this
dz jfoieoayeo u orwuchgl hvrmsxbnqkt tep
http://rumkin.com/tools/cipher/railfence.php

encrypt the above using a Caesar shift of 5
gives this
ie oktnjtfdjt z twbzhmlq mawrxcgsvpy yju
http://rumkin.com/tools/cipher/caesar.php

encrypt the above using rot 13, gives this

Susan Cox Powell’s family asks court to revive lawsuit over her sons’ deaths
Posted 4:57 pm, December 8, 2017, by Ben Winslow, Updated at 06:57PM, December 8, 2017

SEATTLE -- The parents of missing Utah mom Susan Cox Powell have asked a federal appeals court to revive their lawsuit against Washington state over the deaths of her children.

In arguments earlier this week, attorneys for Judy and Chuck Cox asked the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to let a jury decide if Washington's child welfare agency is liable for the deaths of their grandchildren, Charlie and Braden.
