While entering my comment on another story, this story broke - prayers answered?

Bountiful, Utah

This story covered by a different news source says the search is focusing on her diaries. Don't know if the other news source got a copy of the search warrant of if they are just repeating what someone told them.

This can get more to top the Story of the missing person mother,Susan.
Its about Time that Thier is more to keep in Following the mystery!
Some one some body knows the story.
With All The support of many Susan Has all this time to get this missing person found in some way

For I too wish her own Family well in finding out to get some kind of closure.And Why ????? Did they ever Do what ever they done.

I feel so bad for her two Boys caught in the middle of all this!

I am still a skeptic in the case, I want to think that a husband and father wouldn't do this to someone they care about, but more and more I come to think that he had to do it, just like the Casey Anthony case she did it and it makes me mad that she got away with it.

Obviously, this has been a very troubling, ongoing story.

One point that doesn't ring true to me is if Sr./Jr. Powell believe Susan is still alive, why do they think they have the right to publish her personal journals? If she is dead, obviously the husband would inherit her personal effects, not the father-in-law. And, a considerate husband would offer the journals to the parents of the deceased.

To me, it seems like smoke and mirrors; and some people 'protesteth' too much.

Another troubling aspect of this sordid affair is the estrangement of the boys (Susan's sons) and Cox grandparents.

South Jordan, UT

I was a little critical the other day on another story regarding this case. Something is obviously going on.

On another note as I am watching this story unfold I am wondering if Josh Powell is protecting Steve Powell and not the other way around.

Sure hope it's something.

I doubt that the Police would be executing a Search Warrant, unless they had some pretty convincing evidence already...

Since the Powells (son and dad) have already got lawyers involved...

No way they would get a warrant and execute it unless they were ready for the legal backlash. No way.

I hope we learn an answer soon of what happened to this innocent mother...

Let's be real
Salt Lake City, UT

This is awesome. I was hoping that the search in Ely was not at a loss. I think that they were looking for something specific, while watching Josh also. This thing can all be over if Josh would just tell the police what happened. Come Josh, do what it right for once.

Salt Lake City, UT

Maybe WVCPD need to plant the evidence in Washington that Josh's departure never gave them a chance to plant on him here in Utah?

Innocent or guilty, his refusal to comply continues to make them look bad.

thier has to be some more evidence of what had happened and to know the whole truth of the missing mother.What a a horrible sad story

Salt Lake City, UT

If WVC nabs this guy, I will be eating my words, happily.

Salt Lake City, UT

This case has even less evidence than the Casey Anthony case.

Have you ever heard of the term "fishing trip"? Police often do that, hoping that they might find something they don't expect.

Port Alice, B.C.

What a collosal waste of time and manpower.

small town, Nebraska

I hope that they have found something that this case can bring a closure to the Cox family, which could take a while and that they find out and make an arrest. Josh Powell's refusal to cooperate doesnt make him look good and his fathers comments are horrible. Why would anyone take there young children on a campout when it is in the 30's and practically the dead of winter? If they were older and it was a scouting expedition that would be something different. I hope this comes to a close soon. May God bless the Cox family and the Powell children.

Saint George, UT

IF he is innocent, will there be a rush, by those who are certain he killed her, to apologize for pre-judging him guilty?

Has the court of public opinion already convicted him of murder?

6 friends comparing notes about all they know and then coming up with the same conclusion means exactly what in a court of law?

Can he sue people for falsely accusing him?...for libel?

Can he sue the WVPD for harrassment?

On the other hand, if he is guilty of murdering her, the arrest, trial and sentencing cannot come soon enough.

Salt Lake City, UT

I just hope there is enough evidence to nail both Josh and Steve.......couldn't happen to two nicer guys and Susan's boys deserve better than these two......

I can't wait to go camping in 9* weather this winter with my two young boys when I have to be to work at 8 the next morning, eh Josh?

Saint George, UT

These Children are the ones that will suffer the most....
Not good no matter how it ends.
Sad to say........

I seriously doubt it is a "fishing trip."

Not after the fact that the Powells have already lawyered up.

It may be... But I personally seriously doubt it... Or rather, I seriously hope not. For the sake of the victim, and her loved ones.
