Susan Powell's Blood, Hand-Written Note Found In Utah Home

 

Authorities investigating the 2009 disappearance of a Utah woman found her blood in the family home and a hand-written note in which she expressed fear about her husband and her potential demise, according to documents unsealed Friday.

 

The files raise further questions about why Susan Powell's husband was never charged in her disappearance before he killed himself and their two young sons in a gas-fueled inferno in Washington state earlier this year. Investigators in West Valley City, Utah, never arrested Josh Powell or even publicly labeled him as a suspect in Susan Powell's disappearance.

 

A prosecutor in Washington state who was getting a first look at the files Friday said if it was his case, he would have charged Josh Powell with murder.

 

"There is direct evidence. There is circumstantial evidence. There is motive," said Pierce County prosecutor Mark Lindquist. "There is everything but the body."

 

The documents, used as justification to search the home where Josh Powell was staying last year, detail a widespread case that investigators had built against him.

 

Shortly after Susan Powell disappeared, authorities found blood evidence on a floor next to a sofa and determined that it was Susan Powell's. They found several life insurance policies on Susan Powell that totaled $1.5 million. The documents describe Josh Powell as unwilling to help in the investigation.

 

A safety deposit box used by Susan Powell had a hand-written letter titled "Last will & testament for Susan Powell," according to the documents. She wrote in that letter that she did not trust her husband and that they'd been having marital troubles for four years.

 

The letter also said that "if Susan Powell dies it may not be an accident, even if it looks like one," according to the documents.

 

Josh Powell always maintained his innocence and said he had taken their boys, then 2 and 4, on a midnight camping trip in freezing temperatures the night she disappeared.

 

One of the children, Charlie, told investigators in an interview shortly after Susan Powell disappeared that she had gone on the camping trip with them but did not come back home and did not know why, according to the files. A few weeks later, he told a church teacher with no emotion: "My mom is dead."

 

Powell moved with the boys to his father Steve's home in Puyallup, Wash., but Steve Powell was arrested and charged with voyeurism and child pornography last September. The boys were placed with Susan Powell's parents for their safety.

 

On Feb. 5 — a few days after incestuous images found on his computer prompted a judge to order him to undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation — Josh Powell locked a social worker out of his rental house, attacked the boys with a hatchet and then ignited the home in an explosive, gas-fueled inferno. The social worker was not injured.

Interestingly, this case also had an arrest that didn't happen, but in this case it resulted in two more murders of children...is it just not glamorous because they're Mormons? Why no Presidential response?

My guess is that sadly, Susan Powell's family was not adept at making a stink in the press and with their politicians. Trayvon's family contacted the press after they were told that it was self defense and the case was closed.

 

I was unjustifiably arrested in Nicaragua in the early 1990's. Within a week, the story was in several major newspapers, including the Miami Herald, Ft. Lauderdale News and the New York Post. It was also on the desk of Senators and Congressmen from four states. I'm white. My family is white, but it got much more play than most people who are arrested overseas. My family is skilled at communicating with the press and politicians. Think that had anything to do with it?

This is nothing but a failed attempt at moral relativism. There was no arrest because there was no body. You need the dead body to prove murder. Really simple stuff. Way to inject race into the issue. You're as bad as Sharpton et al in that regard.

That's just plain false. It happens all the time...especially when you have circumstantial evidence and witnesses, both of which you have in this case.

I would like to see someone explain why the Trayvon case has grabbed the press so much more than this case other than race. The press loves to promote racial tensions because it is an causes an emotional knee jerk in consumers.

This story HAD a lot of press

I guess if he admitted to killing his wife and the law protected him it would have made an even bigger splash

 

Why weren't you talking about it?

I bet if the police arrived with powell standing over her dead bodty with a gun, and the police decided there was not evidence to charge him under a stand your ground law, NOW and domestc violence victims would be all over this and a national debate would ensue.

 

I wonder how many gun activist woul dbe digging up dirt on the wife to say she had it coming.

Because they just released the evidence to us yesterday.

 

The law DID protect him, dillweeds. He walked from this situation into a murder suicide and the President, the NAACP, the leftist propaganda machine has never once come forward protecting kids from vigilante fathers. Methinks you guys are far too simple to see your own biases. Racism is not about sympathizing with other races...it's about exploiting them.

Prosecutors don't care if your white......they don't even care if you committed a crime, if they have no case, they CANNOT get an indictment. :idea:
