    This is absolutley appaling thet the WVPD didn't make an arrest. I'm thinking they didn't want to pay for the trial. I wouldn't re elect their mayor or their polic chief. Anybody who does, is being very foolish.

    It appears that the quoted emails are all from 2008 (over a year before Susan Powell disappeared). Are there any available emails that were sent/received in 2009, and especially in the two or three months close to the time of the disappearance? They would give a better picture of what was going on at the time of the disappearance.

    Just wondering as I have for the past 2 years why the WV Police didn't take a more active stance and DO SOMETHING. I don't normally like this kind of info in the press on a serial basis but I get the feeling that if it wasn't for the media, we wouldn't know anything about why this all happened. I really feel for the Cox parents/grandparents who have had to stand by and watch their loved ones be slaughtered by a sick husband (whose father is the source of much of this evil).

    Having been through something similar - it is truly a nightmare. First it is difficult to admit what is happening, and then hard to tell anyone - will they believe you or think you are the one with the problem? Fortunately, I finally had a witness to the irratioonal behavior and decided to save myself, my child and my unborn baby - a very hard time nonetheless, and filed for divorce. My ex-husband did not get help and ultimately died in an accident, which since he would not be get help I have to consider a blessing, inasmuch as, like the Powell situaiton, you never know what will happen. My heart goes out to the family. A sad, sad situation.

    Reading her messages makes me think of someone who has had enough and is ready to leave. I sometimes would like to get away from it all and move to an isolated beach where no one could find me, not even my father-in-law.
