A young couple reportedly partied at a bar after allegedly murdering a 19-year-old girl, then argued about how to dispose of her corpse in text and Facebook messages!
Missing Utah mom, Susan Powell has not been seen for over one month and her husband is reportedly skipping town…for good. Josh Powell left the Salt Lake area last month, spending the holidays at his father’s in his hometown of Puyallup, Washington.
He recently returned to Salt Lake, but just to get his things and pack up his house. As of today, he has returned to his father’s house and had no plans, as far as we know, to come back. Members of Powell’s church came to help him pack and load up a moving truck.
I asked a family friend, Kiirsi Hellewell, why Josh Powell is leaving and she said that his reasons were mostly financial. With no job and no way to pay his bills, Josh Powell and his two boys will be staying with his Josh Powell’s father until further notice. Regardless of financial difficulties, police say Josh Powell has not been cooperative in the investigation for his missing wife and he has hired a lawyer. In recent weeks, there has been a media blitz in an effort to gain support and focus on Susan’s story. Family and friends have posted information on internet networking sites as well as youtube.com, to keep Susan’s face in the public eye. But Josh Powell has not been involved in these efforts, nor has he gone online to read anything about Susan, according to Hellewell. Why? Friends say he is keeping away from the media and staying quiet, as he is the only person of interest in this case.
Susan Powell, was reported missing Dec. 7. Josh Powell told police he last saw her about 12:30 a.m., when he took their two sons camping in the snowy west desert. Police have said he later stopped cooperating with officers who wanted to know, among other things, exactly where he went camping. Susan’s family patiently waits for answers, while Josh Powell allegedly keeps his distance.
