Investigators Think Father-In-Law Knows More about Powell Disappearance
December 10, 2012 -
OLYMPIA, Wash. - Investigators in Washington and Utah who are handling the case of missing mother Susan Powell, say they now believe her father-in-law, Steven Powell, may know more about her disappearance than he's letting on.
Investigators examined her father-in-law's cell phone, calendar and emails earlier this year. The Associated Press obtained records that show 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 back in 2009.
Investigators had largely focused on Susan Powell's husband, Josh Powell, who killed himself and their two young children earlier this year. Utah investigators said they can't discuss details of the case, but Washington state officials have said they believe Josh Powell killed his wife.
An attorney for Steve Powell didn't return a call seeking comment.
