After Susan Powell’s disappearance in 2009, investigators’ scrutiny extended not only to Josh Powell, but also to his father, Steven. Steven Powell was said to have become romantically obsessed with Susan. Computer images seized from his house in 2009 turned up 4,500 images of Susan Powell taken without her knowledge, including close-ups of specific body parts.
Josh Powell claimed that on the night Susan Powell vanished, he took his sons, Charlie and Braden, from their home in West Valley City, Utah, on a late-night camping trip. Authorities eventually searched the central Utah desert but found nothing. Susan Powell’s father said that when police went to the family home after she was reported missing, they found a wet spot in the house being dried by two fans.
As the authorities honed in on Josh Powell as a suspect in his wife’s disappearance, a mentally unhinged man became even more dangerous. At a scheduled visit with his sons, Josh Powell killed them both before taking his own life.
In a case steeped in depravity and deception, a family falls into darkness, leaving only sorrow and regrets for those left behind.
