Utah man brother suspected in womans disappearance

first_imgWEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — The lawyer for the family of a missing Utah woman said Tuesday there’s an ongoing federal investigation into Susan Powell’s disappearance.Anne Bremner made the announcement at a Seattle news conference a day after local officials in Utah said they had closed their investigation into the Susan Powell case.“This is not over,” Bremner said.Newly released police records show that Utah officials believe Josh Powell likely killed his wife and that his brother, Michael Powell, helped dispose of the body, but authorities felt they didn’t have enough evidence to prove that theory in court.During the investigation, Josh Powell killed himself and his two young sons and then left all of his belongings to his brother, who later jumped to his death from a parking garage in Minnesota.Bremner, who was joined at the news conference by Chuck Cox, Susan Powell’s father, said the federal probe could also involve what Josh Powell’s father knew about his daughter-in-law’s disappearance. Steve Powell is currently serving a prison sentence after being convicted of voyeurism charges.last_img read more
