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
By KOMO Staff & MIKE BAKER Associated Press Published: Aug 2, 2012 at 4:31 PM PDT

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.

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.

Utah police investigated Susan Powell as kidnapping, murder .

Posted on August 7, 2012 at 2:05 PM

In the initial days after Susan Powell disappeared from her Utah home, police found clues that caused detectives to classify the case as a kidnapping and murder investigation, according to the Salt Lake City Tribune.

A total of 84 pages of police documents were unsealed and released to the newspaper Tuesday, more than two years after the request was filed.

August 8th, 2012 @ 11:55pm

TACOMA, Wash. — More than 2,100 pages of diaries kept by Steven Powell over several years — most of it filled with descriptions of his disturbing and compulsive obsession over his daughter-in-law Susan Cox Powell — were released Wednesday.

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

Journal reveals Steven Powell's obsession with daughter-in-law
Posted: Aug 09, 2012 10:02 AM MDT
Updated: Aug 09, 2012 10:02 AM MDT

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'.

Nancy Grace covered Susan's case and the recently released journals of her father in law Steven Powell.

Very disgusting to say the least. 

Poor Susan, she never had a chance with those sicko's.

The transcript will be interesting to tonight's Nancy Grace show imo.

They talked about Steven Powell as a possible/probable participant in Susan's disappearance as well as his sick obsession with her that he wrote about in the journals.

I was watching it on NG last night too. It was horrifying to say the least! What a sicko!
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.
