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.
 
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.

Father can't give up the search for his daughter
Aug. 15, 2013

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.

Susan Cox Powell’s family nervous about prison release
Posted on: 10:14 pm, October 11, 2013, by Ben Winslow


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.”
